Are there any readable files where I can see the current Generals/Admirals and their stats in a current game? At least there should be one for those with historical traits where one can read, right? Where?
If anyone wants to know how to get more generals, send me a PM and ill let you know. At the moment i have moded the game in such a way, that i get 2 3* generals, 2 1* colonial generals and 2 3* admirals every turn that i can build from the recruitment screen. If a lot of people are interested, ill post it. Same goes for contentment, militancy rescources and other stuff. The basis for this cheat/mod isnt my own but i expanded it.
Does seem silly to have armies without generals. I like the way Victoria 2 handles it: You convert officers to generals and admirals, but there's no guarantee you'll get a good one. Most generals there are a mixed bag of good and bad qualities, which adds another layer of decision-making - to use him or not. But you have to have them to have a decision to make.
Every stack has a general or colonel or whatever the appropriate rank in charge, just not one worthy of being represented as a leader who matters. I actually like the saving in time not having to sort through a long list of largely mediocrities or worse for every stack command in V2.
