So I've barely even scratched the surface of this thing content-wise and wow, the way the AI spams its units makes me think I'm playing Cossacks! Probably not since EFZI2 (or possibly Civ4) have I had to almost completely readapt my play style (front lines are actually a thing now), and I haven't even hit the fun units yet. The number of AIs and the speed of colonization creates a unique dynamic where border clashes happen much more frequently and are a lot riskier if you're not prepared for a proper war. Haven't had a chance to try out the modern units, but I like the metrics at first glance and was considering something similar for my own projects re. naval bombers as exclusive to carriers. In short: this is the mod I never knew I needed.
