    Am loving the detail in this game...... and the degree of modability.

    love it

    Also love the fact that, as Germany for example, you might not make a smart move to push Barbossa earlier

    Nice!
    In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
    We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
    Military-Industrial Complex Speech, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961

    Why am I not suprised that the example of weather chosen is rain in Scotland

    As Mr Connolly pointed out, we have two seasons here - mud and July.

    Very very interesting.

    Will weather effects play a role in supply lines? (As in it's harder to move supplies through a province when it's muddy or blizzardy than if its clear?)

    Yeah I was going to ask this too.

    I'm liking the attentiveness in this system, with the difference between overhead and ground conditions being relative. Nice work!

    How is the weather system affected by things like mountains? From the screens I can see that fronts hitting land will be taken into account, but will rain form when clouds run into mountains? It would be nice to know how well the rain shadow over the areas just east of the Rockies where I live will be modeled. 300 sunny days out of the year here.

    Would be interesting. Control of Greenland meant Overlord was total surprise because Allies knew that the storm was ending and Germans didn't have a clue about it.

    Isn't this just for coolness sake? Well, I guess it depends on who you ask.
    Although I really like those nifty details, it's not worth it IMO. How many hours was spent on this? Instead of hours that could have gone to other, more pressing issues. Even an earlier release date would have been preferred. Or more beta testing...

    I don't like to be a no-man. But a weather system taking into account pressure and humidity? That's over the top, and not especially usefull. I'll bet alot of money the game has some bugs left at release. I'd rather have those fixed instead.

    The game looks great, don't get me wrong. But focus on the more imortant stuff. Modability, AI. Anything else really.

    There you have it. Some actual criticism.

    Really cool! Hopefully, the AI will be aware of weather too, say when managing some of your far eastern jungle troops, avoiding to attack in the middle of the monsoon unless you've ordered it to blitz?
