Re: Supreme Ruler Remastered

@breznev : once again, this is a game. A computer game. It's only bytes. Ultimately, bytes are not the reality. They are an abstraction. All abstractions are leaky, in the computer world https://www.joelonsoftware.com/2002/11/11/the-law-of-leaky-abstractions/ From what I understand, the abstraction ...

Re: UK Leader

well, in game terms, democracy means that the leader can be voted out - and the newly elected leader is in charge. Nothing else. In that regard, whoever wins in the UK, it's still a democracy. Whatever the actual policy. You have to think in game terms.

Re: Supreme Ruler Remastered

Those political extremes are more a question of interpretation. Both sides can be seen as right - or wrong. Maduro, for example, used to be an elected democratic leader - de facto & de jure(wether he did a good job is another topic, irrelevant there). The recent events make his status considerably m...

Re: How to Decrease Unemployment?

unemployment is GOOD, as it leaves you more room to grow. You can build more buildings, be they industrial or military-based, and you can field more fellow frenchmen under the tricolore flag. My problem is usually unemployment going loooooow, under 4%, and then financial problems(everything costs mo...

Re: save my economy

Well, keeping defcon as high as possible as long as economy is dead seems important to me. It gives margin to repair what is damaged. Of course, once economy is back on track, you can again play with DEFCON. What seems wrong to me is the "self-sufficient yet 11.7 unemployment". Probably means intern...

Re: help me about employment and inflation

inflation is n't that bad when you're dirt poor : you just end up being less poor. And yes, you've probably been building a hell's number of economic building without having the manpower to man them. That's the recipe for your scenario.

Re: Arizona Economy

Most things require petrol in this game, including(but not limited to) building things. So, if you can't buy petrol, you're screwed up.

Even worse, R&D facilities are horribly costly to run, so if you could manage to build them, you'd be even more in trouble.

Re: help me about employment and inflation

Well if you insist on playing Isreal. The best you can hope for is make good relations with allot of the larger richer countries. Also keep very good standings with the UN. Then you will be subsidized by these countries. +1 Israël's soil is so poor that you need external sources of wealth. Diploma...

Re: Languages

French native, English & German Fluent. That's 3.

didn't count polish, 1-word sentences don't count as spoken language. One year or another I'll probably count a 4th one, when my growing daughter will teach me the language of her mom(and vice-versa).

Re: read this on how to make the game

Paradox has a rumor... That a game from Crusader Kings can be saved when it is finished, and carried to Europe universalis or Victoria (forgot), exported up until Hearts of Iron 2 Armageddon! Is this real? I did that(playing Poland, Silesia at first, homeland of my wife). Though the export from EU2...

Re: Damn that Poland and its war starting ways ! :P

History is written by winners, huh..... IIRC, the so-called "Polish cavalry charge against tank" is just an invention of the German propaganda of the time. Polish Horsemen did charge infantry, & did put it in pieces, when the panzers did appear. They were not stupid enough to keep the fight, & did b...

Re: New Regions suggestions

Well.....Corsican independantist don't want a referendum about independance, they know they'd lose it. Corsica is not viable without the protection of the motherland(same goes for other remote islands like that).

Re: SR2020 Review: Better than Lightbringers!

There is a cool feature announced about Hoi3 : the ability to build you own divisions, using brigades. Wanna have 1 cavalry, 1 garrison, 1 tank & 1 arty brigade in the same division? Sounds possible. Stupid, of course, but possible. Ideally, SR would field units designed like that. No idea about the...

Re: GAME SPEED

problem with number 1 is that conquests are dynamic. Conquered land does not magically wait for 6 months for sudenly changing allegiance.When I conquered Namibia with S. Africa, I did it to get this uranium NOW. Time to rebuild it is long enough(and realistic). But rebuilds begins as soon as conques...
