I'd vote for the unit, this would make them more of a hands-on thing. EI if you want to spy on a certain area or facility you would have to move your spy to that area. This is pretty much the way shogun total war did thier spys and assassins, and i found it alot more fun that just doing it by a menu...

I will probably play single player the most.
But multi-player lan will be a close second.

I dont really have any interest in playing multi over the net however.

Public beta testing does not seem to work in my opinion. The reasons appear to be many,and blame usaully can be placed on both the testers and the company. Far too many people seem to think of beta testing as a chance to play the game sooner,this is a problem. Far too many beta tests have little to ...

If you wanted turn base you would just set the time passage to zero,issue your orders then up the time passage to whatever setting you were comfortable with. When you ...

"Shrapnel actually is a publisher" Yes technicality they are a publisher. But they differ in so many ways from the majority of game publishers that it seems to me to be a diservice to them to call them such. The fact that the majority of their developers are self funded and are not making their game...

Shrapnel always says it does excellent on its own. They have made more than a few posts saying they will not use publishers or the retail system in which they explain the problems both seem to cause. I forget who did combat mission, but they also said they did extremely well on net only sales. <font...

I dont mean one that you work your way up to by completeing other scenarios. I mean one that starts with the whole world mapped out,the whole world fragmented and fighting to reform. With the player/s and the ai starting out as a little itty bitty region and having to deal with the entire world and ...

The forum traffic is extremely low. The game superpowers,which in my opinion is very like your game, was released as a real mess.Even the dev's who made the game have gone on thier boards and admitted the game was in bad shape and will take ALOT of work to put right. Will either of these hurt your g...
