It's always bothered me that Nuclear Missiles had such a short range. Stealth bombers have a range of 20. Nuclear missiles should be able to reach just about anywhere on the planet. The forward positioning shenanigans in Turkey and Cuba was mostly to try and reduce your enemy's potential response time, which would make no sense in Civ V when every time you hit Next Turn a year goes by. Of course, this would give first-strike capabilities massive advantages over retaliatory strikes. This is why I always enable "Complete Kills;" hiding a nuclear submarine with nuclear missiles under the ice at the top of the map is a great insurance policy, unless it vanishes in a puff of verisimiltude-breaking game mechanics. But all that aside, I have a few suggestions: *Extend the range of nuclear missiles to 30 hexes (or, a better approximation, 10 * (n-1), where n is the standard number of civs for that map size.) *Enable a 'hair-trigger mode' for nuclear missiles and atomic bombs, where a hex is selected for the unit to deploy to if an atomic bomb or nuclear missile is launched against the unit's city, or if the city would be captured by regular units. If the attacking missile or bomb comes from a different civ than the selected hex, the units default to attacking the launch point, then the civilization's capital, then other cities in order of size. If the attacking missile or bomb comes from within 6 hexes, the chance of retaliatory strike is 25%. This goes up by 5% for every additional hex of distance between the city and the attacking missile's or bomb's origin city. *Atomic bombs gain a range of 20 upon entering the Information era. Upon discovering stealth, change the graphic from a B-52 to a B-2. *New Building: Breeder Reactor Prerequisite tech: Nuclear Fission Hammer cost: 500 Maintenance: 3 gpt Requires Nuclear Plant in city Gives 2 Uranium resources, +100% production of nuclear missiles and atomic bombs in city, +100 production on Manhattan project in city. *There needs to be a HUGE diplomatic penalty for completing the Manhattan project, big enough to discourage everyone besides Attila, Genghis, Bismarck, Alexander, and Gandhi (lol) from taking it unless someone else does so first. *If you have completed the project, but have no missiles or bombs, reducing your uranium to 0 by trade, building power plants, or both removes this penalty. *If you have 0 uranium (uranium spent on nuclear plants still counts toward your total), you cannot build the Manhattan project. I mean, seriously. Come on.
