Scenario Description: Shadow of the Bear
As the Cold War heated up in the late 1950's, what would have been the fallout if a nuclear exchange had occurred between the United States and the USSR? Perhaps it would have given China a chance to emerge from the Shadow of the Bear. Start the game as China just before a nuclear exchange between the US and USSR. Use the opportunity of the Super Powers weakening each other to move against one of them and claim China’s place as a new Supreme Ruler.

Will/does the UN have a function? If you click negotiate with UN once they want to give you subsidy, you can click STATE and you will see a box there filled with different things, also the security council members of UN.

Is a detailed list of which units were added available?
no, sorry.

...Still need work on the techs and unit designs.
What are you talking about? What work?

Has the AI learned how to use leg infantry in offensives when mobile infantry is not available?
Somewhat, but it still tries to avoid them, they're just not overly useful with such a slow travel rate

Will/does the UN have a function?...
The changelog doesn't mention change to the UN system therefore it has not changed.

You can't log in to Steam or the game won't start? I have it on there, just checked and it works fine.

Might try restarting Steam. If that doesn't work go to your Steam folder and delete ClientRegistry.blob, this will basically reset Steam and it's a cure all usually.

no, sorry.


What are you talking about? What work?
There is still a lack of pre-requisites for later unit designs. This means it is still far too easy to obtain newer unit designs and just skip past the older designs. The AI also obviously has no clue of what it should build, or what or when to scrap. I would also say that the research system of SR:CW should have been replaced alltogether with a new, easier to design system from the very start of the game's development, but I won't ask that from you by now. The current research system simply is not practical for a long-spanning and historical game, something "more controlled" is needed. Or just a few hundred new, well-placed techs and some efforts to make excessive research more difficult or phobitively expensive and time-consuming, as it should be.

We are continuing to review that, of course. It would be helpful if you could point to examples of units that you judge are accessible too early.
One can always use the tech level for each unit design as general guidance for this.

How do you think the current prereqs where assigned? There are over 5000 units and no quick way to cross reference unit IDs vs. Tech IDs Re: tech levels an possible alternate prereqs.

You still haven't provided even one example.
