Yeah camera can be tricky. Go into settings and set it for 700 yards, that is what we use IIRC.
Thanks! I'll try that next I open it up. Played through the cavalry tutorial this evening and it's getting easier. Think I'll go back and do the brigade one again before trying the Division tutorial. Are there any particular mods you guys would recommend using?
I would say either start out with the Gettysburg campaign (it will toss a variety of scenarios at you with varying unit sizes--I think from brigade---division---corps)
OR you can just do single battles from Gettysburg in the sandlot.
You can pick and choose your unit sizes---this will give you a chance to get familiar with the different unit sizes and how command works.
Definitely do try commanding the different unit types (infantry, cavalry, artillery). Each unit type has its own strengths and weaknesses.
In the sandlot you can pick and choose different maps and orders of battle (OOB).
Make note of the different terrain types and how the terrain may effect your unit's ability to fight (high ground bonuses, fighting from behind cover, etc).
Once you become more familiar with that, we could bring you into a multiplayer game--if you are interested.
You could start off again commanding a smaller unit and work your way up to larger units as you become comfortable with them.
