    Is there a way to make the game run faster (short of getting a new tower)? I'm really liking APD but the mod is making my game come to a crawl at 1864.

    Considering the location, I think he's just a psychopathic sheik. I might be wrong though

    On my old computer, I would cut down the screen resolution since the graphics were my bottleneck. Not sure how your computer is configured, but it could be worth a try.

    I'm glad my new computer is top-line so it can run APD. I've been having tons of fun with my Carlist Spain APD game.

    Interesting. Personally, I'd like to have seen a Great War centric expansion, but any sign that Vicky is still getting attention is a good one.

    Was it not good, Zack?

    I'm interested in reading it after playing Spec Ops.

    If you like Dickens, you might like it. It's a similar writing style.

    I also thought the title was cheesy, and the book is pretty sexist and racist (black people are portrayed as animals, basically). The protagonist is a major hypocrite as well, and none of the characters are very likeable.

    It is a classic, though, so I might just have unsophisticated taste or whatever.

    Never read Dickens (or at least I don't think I have), so I wouldn't be able to compare. The sexism and rasism sounds about right, considering when it was written :lol:

    Its short though, right? So if it ends up terrible, it'll only take like a week to get through.

    While a WW1 xpac would have been awesome, it would have been limited to the last few years of the game, while this will affect almost the entire game... so, that's better! :D

    I love colonization so I'm eager to see what they will pull out of the hat this time!

    I, for one, am pleased with the announced gameplay changes.

    Is it Gamez, IS IT?

    Anyways, back on topic. This expansion pack sounds awesome enough that I might actually get back into Vicky 2 when it comes out.

    The international crises system sounds really interesting.

    Hopefully the expansion will fix the colonial migration system, which is especially noticeable in the Americas.
