I am proud to announce that the world map is now up. unfortunatly, not every country got its own color, so that might make things confusing.

Same. Making it public read-only would be great. Or copy-paste into forum.

Super excited about this.

The suggestion tool gives us way too much power. I'm definitely abusing it a bit. One semi-serious thing, in the history, you didn't mention that it was China you were talking about until a sentence or two in. But I'm hoping that means that China'll be an option...

I love that battle orders and move orders are on the same phase. So much less waiting! I wish you luck though - battles are a pain to judge, and really time-consuming. Doing all of that on top of normal orders - yikes. I did it in HOTWFD, but this is a much larger game.

Neat on the standardized order sheet. I know that order quality can vary widely. Blackfish's UKPBA orders were pretty good. If you don't already have a format, would you like one as a starting point?

I don't know if Nar and I will still be sharing a country, but I like the option.

Social power is awesome. Great new mechanic. However, I can safely say that your math is a lot more confusing than my calc homework. Congratulations. Being able to fund revolts is great though.

I need some help understanding territories. So, the USA for example. It has 50 population in its core. It has territories that take 5 population a turn to upkeep. Do those people just vanish? Or is it more like they left, and you can't bring them into the army or tax them anymore?

Also, when a territory is integrated, does it bring in population and wealth? And will historical conditions be modified a bit in terms of demographics? If I lose tons of population because my citizens left to go there, do we assume that a significant population from the homeland is now part of the demographics?

Sorry for all the questions.
