==================================================
============================

All these changes are officially approved by the Studio. Gray_Lensman, aka
Michael, is officially our AACW coordinator. The detail of his work for the
current patch follows:

Changes in AACW Historical Accuracy MOD 20080717

1.) Incorporated Jabberwock's Generals' Graphics work.

2.) Incorporated Bigus' rework on the Shiloh and Gettysburg scenarios.

3.) Made many more spelling corrections in the .mdl and .uni files.

4.) Corrected the following structure names.

Mississippi City (was Mississipi City) located in Gulf, MS (705)
Harrisonburg (was Harisonburg) located in Harrison, LA (728)

5.) Manually changed the displayed tooltip name for the Middle Tennessee River
region to "Mussel Shoals". This was done to reduce confusion concerning where
this region was located, since it is now impassable to shipping as it was
historically.

6.) Again reworked the weather files for some inconsistencies.

7.) Corrected (in most places) the mispelled names of Theophilus Holmes and
Robert Ransom. The remaining corrections in the corresponding Units and Models
files will be included in the next "official" patch.

8.) A big "Thanks" to Bigus for contributing his newest scenario "Kentucky
Invasion", which takes place late 1862 - early 1863.

9.) Slightly modified the starting entrenchment levels values for 1861 to bring
the scenarios into similar starting levels as Clovis' MOD. Subsequently the 1861
scenarios start with MaxEntrenchLevel set to 3 and the 1862 Campaign scenario
now starts at 4. The scripted events were slightly adjusted to accomodate this
change.

1861 April Campaign - starts with MaxEntrenchLevel set to 3
1861 July Campaign - starts with MaxEntrenchLevel set to 3
1862 Campaign - starts with MaxEntrenchLevel set to 4
1863 Campaign - starts with MaxEntrenchLevel set to 6
1864 Campaign - starts with MaxEntrenchLevel set to 8

The Scripted Events change these levels over time on the following schedule:

In 1861, there is a small chance each turn from Aug thru Dec for the Level to
increase to 4
---- with a definite increase to 4 in Jan 1862

In 1862, there is a small chance each turn from May thru Aug for the Level to
increase to 5
---- with a definite increase to 5 in Sep 1862

In 1862, there is a small chance each turn from Oct thru Dec for the Level to
increase to 6
---- with a definite increase to 6 in Jan 1863

In 1863, there is a small chance each turn from May thru Aug for the Level to
increase to 7
---- with a definite increase to 7 in Sep 1863

In 1863, there is a small chance each turn from Oct thru Dec for the Level to
increase to 8
---- with a definite increase to 8 in Jan 1864

Additional rework:

10.) Jesse Reno removed from 1864 Campaign scenario. He was killed @ South
Mountain in Sep 1862.

11.) Reworked Oregon Inlet and neighboring regions' border points. Also the
following 4 regions inside the barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina
have been changed to "Shallow Waters".

Albermale Sound (1386)
Oregon Inlet (1388)
Pamlicoe Sound (1391)
Pamlicoe Bay (1393)

12.) CSA shipping should no longer be built upriver of the Middle Tennessee
River region (Mussel Shoals).

13.) Reworked Regional state affiliations for the following 5 regions (also
manually changed the regional name to match these particular state changes.

Susquehanna, PA (76) is now Suquehanna, MD.
Allegany, PA (77) is now Allegany, MD.
Fulton, PA (78) is now Fulton, MD.
Chambers, PA (1482) is now Chambers, MD.
Walhalla, NC (233) is now Walhalla, SC.

14.) Reworked the Naval starting/event reinforcement shipping for the 1861
scenarios. Naval forces should be identical in either 1861 scenarios by the end
of 1861. The biggest fix was the missing Atlantic Squadrons, which now appear in
both scenarios, but also several additional Naval units (6) were not appearing
in either of the 1861 scenarios.

15.) Reworked an error with 615Lawrence, AL region. The Areas.ini, Regions.ini,
and several scenarios incorrectly referred to this region as 615Barbour, AL.

16.) Graphically corrected the mispelled name of "Mt Pleasany" in 759 Pleasant,
TX to show "Mt Pleasant".

17.) Corrected the following structure names.

Hampton (was Hampton Roads) located in James City, VA (138)
Christiansburg (was Christianburg) located in Pulaski, VA (166)
Morehead City (was Moorehead City) located in Carteret, NC (228)
Smithville (was South Port) located in Burke, NC (231)
Grand Haven (was Grand Post) located in Ottawa, MI (435)

18. Reworked terrain files, mostly on frozen rivers terrain.

19. New set of events so that the 'population loyalty' in coastal forts regions
follow closely military control.
