HACK THE PLANET! I thought if you didn't like something in this game you can change it yourself? I already got rid of the opening narration (sorry Sean Bean) but the patch put it back in. Back in days of yore (CIV III) I remember there being a pretty good combined arms mod that streamlined a lot of the management for you or at least made it so you had to use a more realistic military force. There are other games where you have to manage it bullet by bullet but I am not sure what mods are available for this game. There are people who do not want to play with mods and I understand that. At least fix the things that are annoying you about the game and that other people have already put in the work to fix. Thank you.
