    Unhappy Help Required with restoring units

    I'm getting a bit fed up with this whole restoring problem. I've researched all but a few techs in the third era, but none of my units are able to restore to full health, not even when they are in my capital which has every building built, including the most obvious answer--hospitals. Now seriously, all of you that say "research the technology" aren't being very specific or helpful, as not a single technology in the tree mentions the "restore" ability. And yes, I do know how to restore a unit's numbers, but the button remains greyed out.

    Just a bit of info on what I'm playing:
    Campaign
    Easy Difficulty (I know, I know, but I wanted to explore things a bit)
    France
    Third Era with all previous techs researched in Era's One and Two
    Took the Democracy->Constitutional Monarchy governmental choice

    Help would be very much appreciated, as I'm having to create new units then merge them into my elite ones to keep them with full health (a real pain, as you might imagine).

    EDIT - Just made a few spelling/grammar corrections

    if you have 100% of era 2 done then you have the tech, you must have the era 2 hospital built as well and the unit must be in that land to use it, on top of that you must have the resources as well.

    If those pics work, you can see that I do indeed have a Modern Hospital, an injured unit, and a greyed out restore button.

    I'm just thinking on my feet, but could it be possible that completing the quest "Medical Revolution" to place Local Hospitals in most of my territories prevents the upgraded Modern Hospital from allowing units to restore?(not that I could restore when I only had Local Hospitals though either).

    Also, I don't think there is a building called "Military Hospital," is there? I thought the Third Era building equivalent to a hospital was the Enlistment Office.

    I don't have a tech for "Military Hospital" anywhere in my 2nd Era tech tree. Is it autocratic only? (seems unlikely, but I may as well ask anyways)

    Well, that seems kind of dumb... I can never restore my units just because I picked Democratic? That seems a bit unbalanced/underplanned.

    EDIT - I've confirmed this, the tech is called Surgery and it allows you to build Military Hospitals that allow the restoring of your units' health. The tech itself is exclusive to Autocratic government-types (Democratic governments get a different tech in it's place).

    Bug ?

    Is this a bug then, I mean your not healing the unit, you are re training and assigning additional troops to make up the numbers to the battalion, someting thats done in even the basic unit.

    that you have to research restoring units under a specified goverment is a major hamper to gameplay value, and bloody idiotc gamedeveloping. Whos gonna use any other goverment than autocratic now anyways?

    you're kidding, right?

    Ha. "read the manual.' You're kidding, right? The manual sucks.

    The pdf file that's installed with the game has a little more, but not much.

    And neither one tells you how to repair units. I found by accident that you can repair ships if you're adjacent to the dock that can build it (but nowhere else).

    But land units? Haven't found it yet. And the posts people are making are not helpful either. "Uh you need a hospital."

    I have hospitals. Still can't heal units.

    Sloppy game release when they don't even have necessary basic info about the game.

    Didn't these designer learn anything from the Total war fiasco? It took them 3 games to get it right.
