Hi,
I'm new to SOWWL, any advice on how to play or tactics or must have mods would be appreciated.

I live in Dublin, Ireland.

Welcome. Suggested mods would certainly be the KriegsSpiel mod, hosted right here on this forum (Here). We play the game in "Headquarters In the Saddle" or HITS which means the camera follows the commander you are playing as if you were him. The mod has an instructional pdf in it that will offer some help, but sometimes this style can be jarring so it might be a good idea to mess around with how things work as a brigade commander first before moving up to division commander.

In the Impromptu Games thread we discuss our normally scheduled games. Typically we play Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday at 2PM EST (usually a bit earlier so we can get all set up) but you can check out that thread for any last minute changes and can find us in the discord at game time.

As for tactics on the basic level it's not a bad idea to fight with 2/3s of your force leaving 1/3 in reserve. This way if you get outflanked or surprised you can commit reserves, or if you see a gap or breakthrough you have fresh men to exploit it. This works on both brigade and division levels.

Thanks @DumpTruck, I got the mod installed and it seems to work fine. I'll practice with Brigades. Wink

Welcome to the forum. The instruction manual for the KS mod is in the Manuals sub-folder of the KS Napoleon Mod. It will give you an idea of how the AI will behave in various situations. Once you've had some practice commanding a brigade in single player, join us for a multi-player game. We usually fight the AI as a team, so it is a very good way to learn how to manage your troops while asking questions.
