    My guess is that they don't have to be in the fat cross, but they are consumed and no longer available - that is, a corn resource will no longer give your cities +1 health. That would also explain why there a several new ways to gain additional health/happiness bonuses in the game - tehy are neccessary because without them nobody could afford running a corporation.

    That's only my speculation though as I haven't played yet.

    I was thinking exactly the same too. If they have to be actually in one cities BFC, then they would be of hardly any use at all. I mean take the Jewelry Company. How many cities have gold, silver and gems in their fat cross. I don't think I've EVER had a city that suited those requirements. Also there is now an option to trade for resources you already have. This surely is there to increase corps output.

    Thanks to the OP for the Tactical Nukes. :)

    So does the 50% chance against interception mean that these will be quite handy against a civ with SDI?

    Afterworld screenshots and Next War tech tree screenshots. It looks like Next War is essentially a normal game with an extended tech tree.

    This reminds me on D&D EnWorld boards, when some shop (by mistake or something) releases new D&D book a few days earlier, and then lucky buyers come to the forums and answer questions on things they've seen.

    This thread has very similar feeling.

    (**)

    Once you get the chance to actually play a game, I'd love to know how Corporations actually play out, and how they really work (The civlopedia pages you screenshot'd are just too vague and provide no actual mechanics).

    Obviously not something for now, but hopefullly you can keep it in mind for later :)

    Thanks.

    "Mounted Units and Helicopters now receive Flank Attacks against seige weapons."

    YES!!! I'm hoping that means what I think it means. I'm gonna go back through and see if there's a screen shot for a mounted unit or heli. If not, would someone mind posting one?

    Thanks!
