Re: The game still feels empty (not a rant + using new update)

Well, I agree that the game can be like that with normal settings. There are a few things you can do though. World Volatility- This is the first setting most will point you to. It amplifies the effects in game the higher it's set. This applies to positive and negative effects though, so it could po...

The game still feels empty (not a rant + using new update)

Hello. Very excited to see the new update. I just loaded the game with South Africa, using 2020 Global Crisis and all default options apart from 'Random events on medium' and 'Approval Ratings on medium'. However I was disappointed to see that the game is still a big alliance fest. The first few cam...

Re: Alliances (I can't take it any longer!)

Part of the problem are AI rulers never dissolving alliances or building tansions with neighbours. Tensions that coul'd lead to breaking relations or wars. The same with wars lasting forever.... These items are part of the mix getting some attention right now. Among other things, there is the possi...

Re: Alliances (I can't take it any longer!)

I've been looking at items related to this in the past couple of weeks. The update due out later this week adds some additional volatility to the "World Volatility" settings when you set them to high, but it doesn't directly resolve what you're mentioning. In general I've been seeing in the Global ...

Re: Alliances (I can't take it any longer!)

Unfortunatelly, the only thing you can do is to reload your save in multiplayer and mess some things up. But that is not the way any game should be played :oops: Thanks for the info Zauikaku! Not the best work around though no. Surely there is a way the wonderful Devs we have can just tone them dow...

Alliances (I can't take it any longer!)

Hello All How do I stop the world from being one big happy family in the 2020/Modern game? I started as South Africa and they start coming in... UK with Bahrain - ok not bad I think. A few others, ok not bad! Then you get Chile with Isreal and the UK with Bhutan etc and it kills it for me. Yet I off...

I woul'd like to see some internal policy options like closing borders, deporting immigrants or offering asylum and giving special assistance/subsidies to immigrants.

We should be able to close borders!

Re: When playing a Superpower/Big nation...

Also, unlike many games, playing a smaller country is more challenging than a large one. The USA, UK, Germany, etc. have more room to make mistakes in building, etc. As Peru or Cuba, you build the wrong factory and it sets you back a year. Good way to look at it. I usually end up bankrupt when I tr...

Any pre-requisites for the suggestions (like min population, mil fabs present, volatility level, etc)? If not: Kosovo :D or Andora :lol: EDIT: or if you want an "objective" driven campaign, how about restoration of Alexanders Macedonia? That would be a quite an interesting undertaking to read :-) h...

Re: Do I need ...

At this time it's not linked to steam other than used as a download tool/updater. Once you have installed/updated you have no need for steam until the next time you need to upd...

Re: When playing a Superpower/Big nation...

I've always wanted to play as Russia/USSR this is why I asked! I tend to load them, realise just how big it is, how many units they have and turn it off haha.

I guess Germany could be a good test one, right in the middle of Europe and no colonies to worry about!

When playing a Superpower/Big nation...

Something i've always wondered is... HOW THE HELL DO PEOPLE DO THIS?! :o I mean, I have many, many many hours of SP 2020 in me but the biggest nation I ever managed, to manage was South Africa, even then I had to disband all of the military and build from scratch so I know what the hell was going on...
