Hi Guys,

 

I have recently had our Austerlitz website revamped!

 

It is still at the same URL (http://www.austerlitzpbem.com) but has been transferred into a far more easy to maintain format. The old website had become a bit creaky over the years, and it is good to get the site into a more modern format!

 

New content will be added shortly, and possibly the forums will be transferred across to the new site.  The forums are still active on the usual link.

 

I also now have a working Blog on the site. It's still rough, but will be a bit tidier shortly. You can subscribe to the blog, and will get a notification when I post anything of interest.

 

And we now have a Facebook page! Rush on over to 

 

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Austerlitz-Play-by-Email-Napoleonic-Wargame/300252870096613

 

and click 'like'!

 

I'll be using the Facebook page to post Austerlitz news, so hitting 'like' will put the news on your Facebook wall.

 

I also have a personal Facebook page :

All the best,

NEW SPREADSHEET LAUNCHED!!

 

We are pleased to announce that a new spreadsheet turn calculator has been designed by Chris Matthews and this is now available to download from http://www.austerlitzpbem.com/spreadsheet.htm.

It allows an emperor to play with builds and finances without all the number crunching and human error, a change of mind is as difficult as pressing a button. Other features include;

Economics - estimates food production and displays trend on a graph (helps stop starvation), highlights raw material shortcomings for producing EcPts and Textiles. Also has a wine usage graph for those drunken sailors.
Colour Map generation - compares the all nations population, population density (for selecting that rich country to invade) and lists all the production sites. Colour terrain maps are also included to help plot invasions.
Trade - estimates revenue from sales and costs from purchasing.
Army - as well as automatic build/trainingand headcount raise calculations it lists federation troop
types (for organising), highlights troops that are not trained, highlights troops that are elite (over EF)
Navy - as well as the building and repair calculations it lists all fleets with their ship make-up and loading capacities

Barracks - automatically sums cash and economic point transfers to the relevant barracks for all actions.

Email Game Prices

The restructuring of the email game prices has been discussed on our forums lately and our ideas put forward have received excellent feedback.  We have altered the prices of all email games to the following-

£4.00 per turn - Great Britain and Russia

£3.50 per turn - Austria Hungary, Spain and France

£3.25 per turn - Prussia and Ottoman Empire

£3.00 per turn - Holland, Kingdom of Portugal and Morocco


£2.50 per turn - Sweden and Duchy of Warsaw


£2.00 per turn - Confederation of the Rhine, Denmark, Italy and Naples

Please note these costs will only relate to new games starting after Monday 22nd August 2005.  Any games running before this will remain at the same price as before.

This is a trial basis and we can alter any position that seems too high or too low in the future if need be.

You can check out the Available Game Positions link for positions free in new games.

Best wishes,
Sam
