Tell you what, if you send me the scenario editor now I could finish it before the release date :wink: .
Honestly, I'd be honoured to help you guys out. Just tell me when...

How much of the world map would be given to the WM? I can understand giving neutral countries (Switzerland, Uruguy etc) to the WM, as well as some small countries which would be more or less useless (Caribbean and Pacific islands, some of the smaller african and s american countries such as Bennin o...

Whilst a 32 player plus strategy game experience would be tremendous, it is something of a pipe dream. It is more attainable over a LAN, however I have little experience with LAN games(CIV 3 Only) . I do not think it is realistic for 16+ players playing multiplayer, due to the time investment requir...

Yes I did suggest splitting up USA, just to curtail its power somewhat, and realistically, if any two states were to split, it would be California and Texas. I agree we are more likely to see a blizzard in helll then to see some of the African states or the South American's merge. Asia is more likel...

32 Player Map

I just did this off the top of my head. All of a sudden I'm really excited about it. It balaces out the real world, without overdoing it... Also I realise that it is prob pushing the limits of the engine too far, so I doubt it would be seen in anything except a user created map.... I guess I have a ...

What of the 32 Player varient? I am simply aching for this. I usually don't like to follow a set storyline, prefering the 'sandbox' modes. With 32 Players, you could go beyond "United Africa' fighting "united South America', instead creating a situation where South Africa is Fighting Argentina, or p...

Perhaps S/VTOL aircraft and helos could land on allied ships, but carrier aircraft such as F-14/F-18 and the russian Su-27 (I forget which designation could land on their carriers), should not be able to based on diffrences with arrestor wires/hooks, catapult technology and runway length.

I'm Currently completing my major in Micro-Economics. Technicaly, this is more of a macro question, but I may be able to shed some light on the matter. Generally, inflation represents a decrease in the purchasing power of a given unit of currency. Economic growth is usually the cause (via wage rises...

hate mail? from aussies? . . . never! if the economy collapsed you'd expect the demand for indirect subsidies from other parts of australia (especially tasmania . . .) would rise and NSW would get even more bolshie about the whole CGC system. it might even tip NSW into secession . . . & with income...

This may be way too much work - but are you planning to implement cut scenes into the scenario infomation - you could put news clips etc - make it seem authentic. Besides, most people will simply skip past any large sections of text, and therefore not apreciate the storylines.

Awsome. That is going to be one of the highlights of the game in my opinion. Will it be possible to set the regions yourself in the scenario editing function?

You can currently fit more than one unit on sea transports (I did it on a converted civillian ship) but it takes alot of fiddling. Also, are landing ships implemented yet? If they are, I am an idiot.

I'm the opposite. In video games, somtimes I make Hitler look like a little girl. In the mexican scenario I bombed my own cities to see if it would decrease unemployment. If it had worked, it would be a part of my economic strategy..... That was after raising the entire mexican city region to the gr...

I see a possibility that AI might overburden the country with loans.
I see that In the real world, this IS a possibility - ministers implement bad policys all the time.

You will just have to arrest any foolish ministers. Pity they scrapped the idea of executing them.
