    I think my very first military order is going to throw a wrench in that entire system Razz

    And hi everyone, I am the entropic entity known as Techie. Feared by moderators and admin alike for my unique ability to break game systems.

    This, dont expect anything soon, when the games skeleton is ready, I think then we will be ready to start a beta round to flesh it out properly.

    If anyone has any ideas about what they'd like to see in this game before we finalize the rules, please get them in by Friday.

    To be honest, I would like to see military units that didn't have a fixed cost in purchasing and upkeep. Different factors always play a pivotal role in determining cost. New manufacturing techniques make the once expensive units cheap and easy to make and upkeep for a semi-autonomous unit that gets packed away for years until the next war breaks out is sigificantly less expensive than upkeep for organic units that constantly need to be fed and retrained.

    There are 3 reasons why you don't see that much in nation sims.

    1. You need to have independent lists for every nation. Each having its own stats affects the units differently.
    2. Each unit, and each unit variant are affected differently within each nation.
    3. Too complex to do by a handful of people running the game for free and too much work to code by the few that know how.

    We may try implementing something like that later, but for now we're going with the standard.
