    My next project is Operation Unthinkable - Churchill's proposal to liberate Poland at the end of World War Two. The human player will need to decide whether to use the US' first two nukes in Japan or Europe, and hopefully it gets crazier from there.

    I have to say designing a map with five extra terrain slots is magnificent.

    I'm annoyed with trying to prosecute the war as a democracy. The neutral nations don't cooperate when an airbase within both city radii is occupied.

    Democracy? The rules of democracies in Civ2 have little to do with how they actually operated, especially in the war. Btw, will this bold aggression by the west risk Communist-led uprisings in France and Italy or other countries? Seems to me that would have been a real possibility.

    Also, if the atom bombs are used in Europe, and not the Pacific, will the U.S. have a reduction in available land and air forces as a bunch are dedicated to "Operation Downfall" and the slog that would no doubt ensue off the map?

    I would use republic govt and rename it democracy...I think it would refect the situation better and give the Allied player some legroom.

    Grousing about units in an airbase. Even though the airbase is within the radius of my city, they object to units there.

    I want to keep the Allies a democracy because it makes using bombers and nukes trickier.
