    Rhye, email or ICQ me the new Biq and pedia data ASAP and I'll get to a new test game as Spain or possibly France or England, ehich I haven't palyed before but would like to.
    Would you rather than I play one of those or should I stick to Spain which I have past experience to compare with?

    Democratic Republic
    Fascism
    Communism

    I agree that socialist democracy should be added in.

    Absolute monarchy was an enlightenment thing; the roman emperors were dictators.

    an empire is any aggressively expanding state, so a government called empire makes no sense. While we do need some kind of imperial style government, something a little classier is needed for a name ;p

    keep the communal thing for the communists, otherwise no one will ever use it. Social Democracy needs to be added in there, as so many 1st world countries today are socialist.

    hand in agony right now from too mych typing so tjats all ur gonna see for a whi;e,

    Yeah, I would agree with that. The AEGIS system was developed to protect Aircraft Carrier battle groups from all kinds of missile threat and air attack. So the AEGIS cruiser should have a very high anti air defence and take any hits from "cruise missiles".

    I don't agree with the social democracy thing - it is basically a movement, a political party.
    Then, if they're winning in most of the post-communist states, that's another matter. But that countries have democratic republics now.
    Putting a "social democratic republic" in would mean adding "federal republic" and many other insignificant varations.

    On the empire, at first I tought of adding it, but it is basically a different name for large monarchies. Apart from the fact that an empire is spreaded through large territories and have a lot of conquered territories, there is no difference with monarchy.
    Just think: the Queen of England was at the same time the ruler of the British Empire.

    About the roman empire thing, it could be both a despotism or a theocracy. After all, the Roman emperor was a "pontefix maximus" (I don't know the english word, please tell me) at the same time.

    I turn this question to everybody:

    what do you want as American UU:

    A) A-bomb (which replaces the tactical missile?)
    B) AEGIS Cruiser (which will replace a Modern Destroyer)

    Pontifex Maximus means highest priest basically.

    I am still pushing for an American marine unit b/c a naval and an air UU will leave the comp w/o anything.

    A Marine UU. Call it the U.S. Marine Corps or something. It would definitely fit better than the AEGIS Cruiser or A-Bomb, and it would be more useful, especially in America's case, seeing as it is isolated from the other major powers. Isn't the idea to make America a powerful nation, as opposed to hamstringing them with bad UU's?



    Edit: Heh, my 256th post. What a nice number.

    Actually Rhye, in its early days Israel was highly socialistic. There are still many remains of this era, like the Electric Company and the Phone Company which are both monopolies that either used to belong to the gov't or still do. I'm sure we're not the only country to have this kind of thing.
    But I don't really know how it would differ from a Democratic Republic.
    Btw, I'm still waiting for the fixed files, Rhye. I won't be able to play much today if it all, but I will tomorrow at least a bit (starting on German classes again, new semester... But I will have time as this is not an intensive course.)

    A marine UU...there's no proper name and there's no proper animation available. And every country has marines.

    An UU should be chosen on history and real facts - then I can make it more or less strong. It is a very late unit, so not much helpful, in any case.

    for blasphemous and any other who want the last update 0.386 (little has changed since 0.382): replace the "2" with a "6" inside the link I sent you last time.

    Errr... Rhye, America has no better time to use a UU than the modern age. A good Marine UU would be hellishly useful to Lincoln. I don't know about a name, but I would guess they should have a boost to attack, a tiny boost to defense, and possible Airdrop capability (replacing Modern Paratroops as well as Marines. Don't know how realistic that is.)

    No, cause I won't play it before I get back from school tomorrow anyway. I'll d/l it and play it ASAP tomorrow tho. I should manage to get in an hour or three before I have to head off. Enough to see if the ancient age is changed much since 0.382.

    I am inclined to agree with Blasphemous. America needs a good UU. The normal marine is what, a 8/4/1? The American should have increased attack and increased movement, allowing multiple attacks per turn and also decreased defense. This will make them very offensive units but very poor at defense (look at whats happening in Iraq)

    Maybe make it a 10/3/2. What do you think?

    a proposal that just came in my mind:
    Marines as american UU as a replacement for a modern infantry unit (to be added, with anphibious ability)

    Well, not totally accurate because other nations have marines as well, but sounds good! Both should have paradrop, I think. Not a very high range, just enough to make use of this very interesting strategic option that is wasted on the underpowered paratrooper. It's not like modern infantry can't be easil flown in to a combat zone, even if it's not an actual paradrop... The game's paradrop is the closest we can get to that. (Unless you wanna add another helicopter-type transport plane.)

    YES!

    American marines are pretty much able to do anything, so it works really well for them to have like every ability ;p

    Henyway I am so glad I wasted all this time playing a new game when u had already released the next step ;p

    No I haven't. it's just a couple of fixes. Blasphemous wanted it before restarting the game.
    Next real step will be 0.4 - with governments.

    Anyone else think it would be cool to do scenarios for various eras based on the completed version of this mod? you could set it up for the age of discovery, or the american revolution, or the cold war or ww1 & 2

    it wouldnt be so hot for the ancient world, but how awesome would it be for later age scenarios?

    def something to think about... mwahahaha rhye, you will NEVER finish ;p
