    Looks really good! Just a little-stupid and ignorable(lol, dont bother with me :p) point, wouldent Hittler be better as expansionist(hum, Im missing something in the word, anit I? :p) rather than industrious? Cuz he wanted to dominate the world you know ^^

    Anyway looks nice! Gonna give a try, I hope it wont look much like others WW2 mods from here hehe

    This looks like it should be great...

    There's 3 problems I've seen in almost every WWII mod/scenario in the world... hopefully yours will be the first to change them?

    1) The Axis nations have to be on the same team. The Allied nations have to be on the same team. The only problem I see that you'll have trouble trying to work around is getting the USSR on the allied side... but have them neutral at the beginning of the war... trigger? make it blazingly easy for them to forge a permanent alliance? I dunno... I don't do much coding... if you manage to work that one out you're a god... because no one else has an answer for that...

    2) The 2 sides have to be in a locked war!

    3) Really just a question... but it's a problem in many other scenarios I've seen... What's the map going to look like? I noticed Japan and both Chinas are on the list of countries... which usually implies a world-map... but those are the only non european countries there...

    From my observations... world maps make it either too big for most computers, or you end up with all countries other than the USSR USA France, GB, Germany & Italy having only one or two cities

    maps of just the european front or the pacific front work well... but obviously only give you half the war...

    I ask questions and never have answers... so I apologize if this sounds like critisism before you release a product... but I'd really love to see a good WWII scenario... and this has yet to happen...

    So my last question... is when will it come out? :-D

    i think using giving some counties only 2-3 cities is the only opition for a world map, world war.

    maybe tweak the terrain surrounding those cities for production, food and gold boost?

    any body remember captain nemo's WW2 scenarios? they were ureal, the best i've seen so far.

    best of luck!

    Okay, I gotta ask... Where's Canada? I mean, not a lot of folks give us the credit we deserve for either World War. I guess I'm just a bit perturbed that you have Vichy France and not the True North Strong and Brave.

    As for Hitler being Expansionist or Industrious, I have to cast my die with industrious! I mean, yes he was a horrible person directly responsible for tens of millions of deaths. However, his party's efforts brought Germany out of the Great Depression, build the Autobahn, founded Volkswagen, and forged one of the greatest and most powerful nation industrial movements known. Keep Agressive, though ;)

    Oh, and I have to agree with doompigeon there, to have a more enjoyable game, stick with Europe only.

    Anyways, that's my two cents. Feel free to flame :p

    @Kaar
    I am not saying that Canada didn't help.Canada helped a lot with it's support
    in materials and soldiers.In the scenarios I am planning to create with WW2mod Canada won't play an important role because I am not planning to create
    ,at least now, global scenarios.Just European fronts and perhaps an asian front.Vichy France played an important role as it's army was used as garissons in almost all of France and north-west Africa.I will think about the industrious trait.
    @doompigeon
    They will be in the same team.USSR in the first scenario I am working
    will be neutral.I'll do my best to find a solution.About the map...
    I am planning to create European scenarios and perhaps an Asian one.A global map needs a lot of work and it will make Europe too small.However, right now I am not thinking of a global scenario.Now your last question is difficult to be answered,because of my work I don't have enough time to finish it quickly.I believe the worst scenario is in 3 weeks.However if I find some spare time I can finish in a week.
