Nice Ideas that I just made up!
We all kinda like the Mercenary's Mod component, and that this mod component is pretty useful when you need a unit by your side. Now we need something else that could effect the AI players and other non-AI players. Here are some Ideas that I made up.
-Item Shop Mod Component: This component is use for the AI and Players to purchase items that could help a unit out on increasing damage or resisting a certain type of damage. This shop can allow you to purchase top weaponry to help make your units be able to blitz like a tank or allow you to do collostail (sp?)damage. I will like this mod component to be used on any type of mod, this mod could be useful in fantasy mods and maybe some modern warfare mods like Total Realism and Modern World.
-Stock Market Mod Component: In the Industrial Age, stock markets rises and companies beginning to expand and expand, making and discouraging citizens on every nations if they don't got the right goods. I don't know how to explain this, but this mod is use to dominate AI players on market share, and making there economy rise or fall. this mod could be useful for players who need to earn more money or need to obtain World Economic Power. To do this, you need a material (iron, copper, Aluminum, Sulpher, etc) and be able to use it on the stock market (I don't know much about stock market sharing, but I think we can do it just like the Sid Meier's Railroads! game that recently been released).
Those are the two Ideas that I made up on the top of my head, maybe this should be used for players who want to use these things when they are in trouble on war or economic depression.
