    One advantage seems to be that you save 0,5 gold.

    I am hoping that when we send a diplomat, it is like a character with traits and stuff.

    This was a short but still great devdiary
    But judging from the screen I can say that I won't be roating the view, it's so confusing i could hardly figure out what was what even with the helping square on teh minimap

    Birds flying high, you know what I mean
    Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
    Dragonflies out in the sun, you know what I mean, don't you know?
    Butterflies all havin' fun, you know what I mean
    Like sleeping in peace, when the day is done
    And this old world is a new world
    And a bold world
    For me
    And I'm feeling good!

    Are armies recruited on a 1000 men per unit base? And how this unit is called? Cohort? This would be too Roman-centric (not to say too early for pre-Marius republic)

    One more thing. Will there be any cap on number of elphants one can field at a certain time? Or cost is supposed to be the only limit factor?

    Nice. I especially like seeing some code lines. And I have to agree that rotating the camera angle will be far too confusing to use.

    "The Central Committee and the government are in possession of definite proof that this massive exodus of the peasants has been organized by the enemies of the Soviet regime, by counterrevolutionaries, and by Polish agents as a propaganda coup against the process for collectivization in particular and the Soviet Government in general" - USSR leadership about famine & migration caused by bolshevik policy of confiscating all food despite human losses. Stéphane Courtois et al, The Black Book of Communism, pg. 164.

    Will we get the chance to do the same to AI diplomats? Because that would be the best event ever.

Which then breaks the game in favor of human players, since we could send out diplomat with high ratings, to get favorable results, but if the AI does that, we'd just ax the guy to deprive them of his services, as seeing "Diplomacy rating 8" doesn't really have the same effect on us as it does the AI.

    So, perhaps there's a penalty to a player killing off high ranking diplomats, moreso than there would be killing off a crappy negotiator?

    Aside from all that, what is the purpose of killing the diplomat? Just to piss off the other country? An equivalent to the "send insult" button? I'm guessing that if you send an unreasonable offer to the AI, they'll be likely to kill the guy, but again, thats not the same for humans.
