I've been searching furiously through all the information I can get on this (I'm chokin' on my own excitement here!!!), but thus far I haven't been able to make much sense of this whole "Social Policies" idea. It's like civics, but it's formed 'like a tree'? So you can 'plan your civilization'...? What in the name of Darius is this all about???? As a gamer that is pretty strictly a civver, I was wondering if this kind of system has its roots in another game (as the new combat apparently takes its cue from Panzer General). Is there anyone out there who knows anything more about what this might look like??
