O.K. here is my plan:
I will not conquer the world.
I will not cheat.
I am not very good at this game.
This is what I plan to do:
Germany begins the game very fragmented I will then follow the thoughts of one German man, Adolf Hitler. This should get a reaction.
1 - I shall unite all German speaking peoples.
1.1 - That includes Anshluss (Union) with Austria
1.2 - Also included is the Baltic countries, ie: Teutonic order.
2 - I will gain lebensraum (living space) to the East.
3 - I will establish the Greater Germany as a world power by colonising large chunks of the world. (And Bavaria doesn't have a single explorer...)
4 - And I might just humilate France every now and again.
I have also seen a coule of 'Greater Germany' AAr's lying around, so I will do everything in WW2 mode. (maybe this should be in the HOI forums?) I am starting today, so first installment coming soon.
All this done in the Grand Campaign Version 1.7.
