    That's definitely possible.

    You need to set a good example on him. It's readily apparent that he still thinks he can push you around and win if this is the 3rd DOW. Occupy a chunk of his cities, confiscate the uranium and then return most of his lands only after 50 years of peace.

    If I can, I'm probably going to take more land from him this time than I ever have before, and perhaps make him where he will never again be a threat.

    Don't forget to dismantle all the buildings in the cities you take when you (eventually) give them back to Napoleon.

    I think I already used this picture in a previous update, but I just wanted to point out that my capital...

    ...has 40 population!

    Nuclear sub been doing a little damage to the Chinese navy.


    This city is on France's continent, and as you can see, I got a GDR ready for them there.


    And here it comes now.


    It looks like the anti Aztec parade is beginning.



    I refused;I'm not sure if she's learned her lesson yet.

    Attacking the city...


    Askia and Cathy make peace with each other and join the party against Monty.


    France finally captures Tyre.

    Looks like I'll have to liberate it again...

    The Songhai are trying to help against France.


    My GDR beginning it's job of cleaning up French filth.

    And Mongolia also delcared war on Monty.

    Still fighting the Chinese.

    And...

    I puppeted it.

    Monty is now a war with many nations.


    Well, this seems kinda strange.

    He hasn't liked me for a long time.

    Bringing the invasion force to attack France.


    And...

    ...there's the Dow that is going to cause untold death and suffering, the one from Japan.The war between the two superpowers has begun!

    This is weird.

    My Helicopter making it's landing.
    But...

    Now you can't see it.I guess just a bug or something?
    Well, it ended up getting killed anyway.


    I think with this little army I might have a chance at recapturing Tyre.


    Bought up the CS next to China for some help, and since it's militaristic, I'll get some units.

    With assistance from my navy, we begin seeing some progress against France.





    Attacking the other Chinese city.




    And got it.Puppeted as well.

    War with French on the other front.


    It appears that Monty has no desire to make peace with his Japanese counterpart.



    And now, another big shocker...
    Spoiler :

    So, Ramy declares war as well?

    Advance of the Siamese.


    This is the first time in a while that my home country has been seriously threatened.

    The good old Songhai helping me out.


    Looks like the Siamese won't even leave my colony city alone.




    That looks pretty bad.Maybe I'll survive.:D

    But I do have a present for them.
    Spoiler :


    A nuke of course:mischief:

    A look at Japanese stuff in the Aztec Japanese war.



    And a look at the whole front.




    And it looks like sometime during all this that Monty captured Persia's last city.

    But they're not completely dead, so I must have turned on complete kills when I started this game.

    Anyway, that's all for now.

    Well, you're certainly making progress! You jest need a few more nukies. :)

    Just as the Aztecs are running away over the Chinese, the Japanese are doing the same to them?:eek:

    I'm surprised it took the Siamese that long to DOW you...

    That's the first time they've DOW'd me, but I DOW'd them once to protect a city state they were attacking.They've been guarded with me for a long time, but I think they may have gotten friendly not long before they attacked.I'm still not certain of that, since I didn't check to be sure, but they offered me open borders, which is a good sign that they were friendly.

    Edit:Just in case anyone is wondering, this game is being played on Prince difficulty, and I have edited the OP to tell the difficulty there as well.

    Ok, finally doing another update.

    Starting off on the Siamese front.

    Got a great general there to help.

    Things are not looking too good around Chicago.




    I wasn't sure if Chicago would survive that.

    And on the eastern French front.



    And...

    Go Edinburgh!They are in a permanent war with Siam.

    And on the French front again.




    Man those GDRs are powerful.And recaptured Tyre, and liberated it.

    And at Chicago...


    Buying Singapore back;need the aluminum.



    Finally made peace with China.After being hammered by me and then the Aztecs too, I'm not sure if they will be too much of a threat anymore.


    Shouldn't have left the great general undefended.Siamese got it:(

    Sending some troops back from the war the the Chinese.


    And fighting France...


    Recaptured Troyes, and puppeted it.

    Things are looking better around Chicago.



    Lost my Songhai ally:(


    And now she comes back and denounces me.She should just be glad I left her with as many cities as she has.

    Alright, Siam.Now we'll show you war.


    Lol.Longswordsman fight mech infantry.

    I think they destroyed one of the mech infantries out of that unit.:lol:

    Still fighting Siamese.





    Sending a tank to help against France.

    This is weird.

    "The city of Grenoble can attack a nearby enemy."Ok, but I don't see any.

    Must be a bug or something.

    :eek:
    strange:confused:

    Uh oh

    I better hope he doesn't have uranium.


    I refused.We haven't taught him his lesson yet.

    So with the GDR and Modern Armor helping against Siam, I should be able to do considerable damage there.And with troops freed from the war with China, I'll have more reinforcements on the French front.

    Because of the French navy, I'm about afraid to send a big army to the eastern French front.So the biggest attack will probably come from the west.

    That's all for now.

    Wow, this is turning out to be pretty interesting! I will be looking forward to see who the emerging superpowers will be. The only one I think is pretty certain in it's title as superpower is Japan, it looks like they will really take out most of the Aztecs.

    Only Suleiman and Genghis are autocrats eh? What about Wu and Askia, especially now that Wu has been pushed to the edge by a losing war?

    If you mean the settings, it's just a Huge Fractal map set on Prince difficulty at standard speed, with no victory conditions enabled, and I just played like I normally would.

    I could try to upload a save of it.The current one is too big, but I might could find an earlier one if anyone wanted to try it.

    Okay, Smallfish.Here's the update you wanted.;)

    We start off on the Siamese front.

    Things are looking pretty good here.

    Defeating one Mech Infantry straggler.




    Playing it safe for a little bit, and letting the Modern Armor heal up before continuing.

    Sending a GDR across the channel to help with France.



    And...

    I think Great People starting Golden Ages may be the only thing keeping my economy afloat right now.

    Killing off another mech.




    And attacking another French city on the eastern front.

    Alright, France.Now we're ready for war.


    In position and firing!


    Moving in for the assault on...

    um...whatever that city's name is.

    Didn't see this coming.


    This army gave me a little trouble.

    Edingburgh must want something to stop all these wars and bring peace.


    A large and unexpected Siamese army caused some of my army to go into a temporary retreat.



    Oh, yeah, and I captured this city.


    Still fighting France.


    And...













    That was a pretty intense little battle.:D

    Okay.Back to Siam.








    Back to France.







    Moving to attack the former Russian city of Yaroslavl.


    And back to France again.




    And back to Siam again.










    And back to...oh, you get the idea!




    And got Nanotechnology.

    Not that it has much signifigance, though.I'm not trying to win, and, in fact, have all VCs turned off anyway.
