I agree with the OP. Changes I would like to see: 1. New Dreadnaught/Battlecruiser unit becomes available with Steam Power. Renders Frigate obsolete. Same movement restrictions as Ironcad (high coastal movement, low ocean movement), requires coal, 40 ranged attack. Obsolete with Battleship. -OR- Battleship moved to Replaceable Parts. 2. Prize ships does not affect Industrial, Modern, Atomic Age, and Information age units. 3. Carriers recieve a site bonus (aircraft recon) and give a small combat bonus (5-10%) to units (land and sea) within a certain radius (two -three hexes) while an aircraft is aboard. -OR- Give aircraft Recon missions.
