I will offiically answer these: 1. Yes, Japanese are gone 2. Foothold in Eastern English continent - though soon in American 3 American did a sneak attack with a stupid dragoon on a very fortified city. Silly AI 4. Just the small city of Lahinch. No biggie but still annoying because I had to spend resources there. 5. The engineer - as I explained in my notes - was supposed to be my foothold on the American continent. I landed it on a forest with a road that leads right to it, and without any support for defense (my oversight). Yes, we ARE still at war with America. 6. Well, Apollo does sort-of go boom... Wanted to see the map and I just do not fear any space race at this point. 7. The four items that filled my day were Mass Transit and Airports for improvements (never ending with those) and freight and howitzers with units (flown about via airports). Basically, if you did not have it, you got a mass transit. Then, if you did not have it, you got an airport. Then, if you had a barracks, you built a howie. If not, freight. If all of your routes were accounted for, then perhaps something else. Of course, once stealth hit, the fighters started becoming priority.
