    Its a major technical and design problem. We don't go "lets hide these parts from people moahaha", Civ 4s engine was built from the ground up to support this stuff. I think its cool, but takes much longer to implement than without it. HoI3 allows you to change a lot of the Ai logic code for example as well as country setup etc.

    I'm not sure which one would win, but I guess this has been relevant recently.

    Ooooo, close but no cigar. I thought long and hard about this and if you analyse the videos for Circle in the Sand and Hanging on the Telephone you will see that while there is very little between them, BC is slightly better looking.

    Arguably the best documentary series of any sort, IMO.

    What do you guys hate the most? And since hate is a strong word, it can be what you really, really dislike as well

    I second this question. Depending on the next game at hand, I'd love to apply my knowledge to the games Paradox makes.

    On a second note, are any of the Devs Italian?

    You finding that you appreciate long nights of beer drinking more these days? When they don't happen as often, they are all the more sweet in my experience...

    Absolutely, you know how to contact me! A fan meetup in Autumn would be great too, it would be warm enough that I could sleep on the street without fear of freezing to death, this would significantly cut down on accomadation costs and leave me more money for beer

    Do you ever plan on trying to figure out how to implement a system where you can fight your own battles (or just let the AI do it)? Like maybe be able to zoom in uber-close and be able to use a ratio for how fast you want time to go?

    Then your broccoli wasn't prepared right, because it doesn't really have a strong smell and it tastes pretty good as a side vegetable.

    Brussel Sprouts, however, I dislike as well.
