    I'll add more info about units that found place in mod soon
    and I also want to hear opinions for new units (for existing nations and that nations wich'll appear in next patches).

    So what units you would like to see?

    Saab J 29 Tunnan Swedish jet fighter project did start 1945 and first flight was 1948.
    And for Finland Jägers (Jääkäri) that are elite troops. So they could be infantry 3 or 4.
    Japanese I-400 class submatine/carier
    do this mod have Zeros in it

    Yes Jäger should be added to Finland(if it's in in next version) also skitroops and tankhunters.

    and what do you think about adding units that weren't used by this country?

    I think it's better to change history not replay - so when finland gets Jet Fighters Technology (and it should be hard task) it's able to produce JetFighters units - in this case i would give them Messerchmitt Me-262 or Saab J 29 Tunnan. What do you think about it?

    Unique infantry units would be good, Red army for the Soviets, Italian blackshirt for Italy, etc.

    I've been everywhere, man
    If there's one thing I think every mod out there needs more of, it's unique warships. I'm working on fixing this, but it takes time. Especially with any Pacific scenario, you should have some of the more interesting ships, like the I-400 class Japanese submarine aircraft carriers.

    Agree. Germany should have example; Bismarck but it would cost A LOT. But Bismarck's strenght would be like 55 :goodjob:

    Finlands first jet fighters was De Havilland D.H.100 Vampire and Folland Gnat fouga Magister and they are delivered in the 1950´s to replace the Messerschmitt Bf 109 that was in service to 1954. I like the Saab J-29 more then the Me-262. Here is a picture of a Finnish Bf-109 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Messerschmitt_Bf_109G-2.jpg

    how about adding the B-24 Liberator that is the most produced bomber made

    Ok so finland would have de havilland vampire :)

    There will be more see units (for britain / us / japan / germany / soviet union - rest would be using generic units) - not so much as tanks and airunits - the speed of game (especially ai turn) is getting worried me

    What about adding Gliders to 1944 Scenario gliders was used in great numbers to take strategical stuff like bridges and stuff like that.
    CG-4A Waco USA
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CG-4_Hadrian
    And a big one
    Airspeed Horsa that can take a jeep or anti-tank gun or 25 troops
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airspeed_Horsa

    maybe instead of airplane animation I think that helicopter would be better so it can land and take of from

    in the next patch you should make it so that cars have an extra movement so it has more than 2 movement.

    i think they have nice movment (i'll slightly slow down other forces) - try it with "Recon" promotion :) i was able to spy with my jeep through enemy lands and return to base the same turn :)

    about gliders i don't see much use now (the same goes for transport planes) - they need good changes in sdk so airdrop infantry would make airdrops :)

    Everything I would add has already been mentioned, but here's a short summary:

    civ-specific infantry (Asio said that will be implemented in a later update;-) ), PanzerIII (the only german and important tank that's missing) here's my thought:

    Early Tanks:
    PanzerII (light)
    Panzer38t (medium)
    PanzerIII (heavy)

    Mid-War Tanks:
    PanzerIV (light)
    PanzerV (medium)
    PanzerVI (heavy)

    Late Tanks:
    PanzerVI (light)
    PanzerVII (medium)
    PanzerVIII (heyvy)

    In these eras only these tanks should be buildable.

    What about adding a cruiser class to the naval units?!
    And the Bismarck would be a very nice UU for Germany;)
    Seamines would also be nice!

    Also an air transport, that can drop units on every land tile and not only in cities would be awesome!!! But this will surely need python and sdk. Hopefully somebody like Dale or TheLopez could help.

    What could be the purpose of a great diplomat? Idea sounds nice!

    Germany already has much tanks i know there's lack of PanzerIII, but i don't see need to make it in next 1-2 patches

    new classes are on the list: Dreadnought, Cruiser and Submarine carrier (i don't know how it was called)
    I want to put few UU also there :)

    Yup sounds nice :) PeteT has a lot of work with code right now, but maybe he'll add this to :)

    and about air transportunits i lack the airdrop infantry and fully working transport planes - the airdrops is what on target on PeteT - he helped us a lot with tough sdk python - i hope he would be able to make breakthrough in this matter (or Dale or Lopez)

    I would like to see different classes of naval units. Try to be historically accurate. This would mean makin tons of unique units though. Probably not too difficult, but maybe too tedious.
