Ilkhold said:Every nation could have done this, and would have if it was necessary. Do you want to make MP events for all countries? It won't work with random events, so you either write some hundred events or assume this effect already taken into account in the working MP system.
writing the events is not such a bit problem. Since they will all have a fixed date there is no big strain on the system constantly checking for triggers.
I wish there was a way to increase MP output through tech but I dont belive there is.
I know that for one Germany did not have the option of taking their own women into the factories on the scale we are talking here because much of the national socialist way was based on the woman staying home raising lots of children.
Ilkhold said:Beware! This is dangerous ground. Imagine players not into history. What impression will they get? A very detailed economical system with trade unions, women labour etc. but you won't tell them about the crimes the evil. They will consequently have difficulties to believe it ever happened. It all depends on the level of detail.
Apart from that it is highly debatable whether german trade unions had a bigger impact on the economy than some few million slave workers.
I agree with you on this but its a paradox issue not one I created. If we could be allowed to let it in under a Foreign labour label without details it would be ok with me but I doubt they see it that way. It is hard to not step on anyones toes with this and we better take this to the wiki discussion before it gets closed down.
Ilkhold said:In my opinion the detail in parts of the economy does more harm to the overall experience than it does enhance it.
But the fact that fx UK did use a lot of women in the factories and worked multi shifts did have an impact on the war and allows for us to raise the British production output without resorting to increasing IC, which can be captured. The tech increase cannot.
German Unions were that strong, I doubt you could come up with examples of stronger unions from that time period.
