Will there be a way to cut off a units ability to recieve orders ?

Hmmm... interesting question. I would think not, though. Modern long-range communications, both ground and satellite, should preclude units being entirely isolated.

(To answer the follow up question of "what if a player doesn't have a communications satellite"? There are two answers: first, I'm not even sure we will be tracking standard comm sats as a game item; second, in regional games, it could be assumed that the World Market and other commercial entities would have comm sats available.)

At the 'top level' whole-world map, well, in theory you 'could' lose comm ability, but I'm not sure this is important to simulate.
