  • What about a boys from Brazil faction? We already got one right wing dictator cloned in here, why not another?  ;)

    In all seriousness though- faction idea to balance this one out, what about something environmental?

    Also, could you post the stats of each faction? Like their social bonuses and flaws.
    Brazilian fac? That's an idea. How about a "Hispanic Union"? I guess that wouldn't fit, as the game is seperated by ideologies, and not race.
    I'll probably do something Brazil tommorow, as I'm sick so I might have a whole day with nothing to do.
    I will posts the fac stats. Didn't really think of it before.
    I would do a Gorbachev or Stalin faction, but we already have a commie one.

  • You don't have a communist in your pack- and if you're going to do something new try a faction based off of the Bolshevik 1918 revolution. That'd be interesting, though Stalin could do as well. Gorbachev as leader was a socialist leaning more to moderate mixed economy and he was fairly docile when it came to foreign policy so I don't know if he's the man you want. If you want Soviet leader who was really brazen and just as brash and pigheaded as Reagan in policy, try Brezhnev or Kosygin, the two of them is what dragged my country into Afghanistan and got us into that poison hole.



    When I meant Boys from Brazil, it appears you missed what I meant: The boys from Brazil is a reference to a Nazi cloning program/attempt where former Nazi's who escaped the jurisdiction of the war crimes councils by fleeing to South America, tried to create Hitler by cloning him. (Fictional of course, the program. Nazi's really did escape into South America though.)

    1. RR
    2. IA
    3. GOC
    4. Apple
    5. Gates
    6.Nazis of the future
    7. New Stalin (Or lenin?) - New SU.

  • Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

  • Here is the WIP graphic for The Apple and Gates Inc. I'll likely have it done by the end of today.

  • Alright, the Apple (Apps) is complete. That's 2/7 completely finished. I'm putting it up now.

    EDIT: Although I know this is unlikely, does anybody have a pic of the Castle/Palace thing in Moscow that would work as a base? I want to use that, but I cannot find one that is at the right angle.
    Also, any ideas on what I should use for the BFB base? These are both something I'll have to think about. I suppose I got lucky with the Reaganites.
    Post Edit: Nevermind about the BFB, I know what I want to do.

  • Sick days give me alot of time.
    Take a gander, Boys From Brazil.

    EDIT: The fac is done. It fits rather nicely with the rest in the game compared to my other ones, although the base names are scarce I must admit...
    I wonder what the AI does when it runs out of base names and the "_____ Sector" ones?
    I would guess it just named it A1, A2, B1, B2 and so on...

    Just look at names of Germanic culture, Norse gods, names of Teutonic knights, German history. and qoute.. lots of different naming options. Could probably figure out names if needed..

    Is this the Kremlin? This is what I wanted to use, but I can't find one from the right perspective.

  • That's Czarist architecture - you know, a throwback white Russian faction led by a Nicolas II clone might be a more interesting way to go.  More contrast with the Hitler and Gates factions, for one thing.

    Hmm... I don't really know about that part of Russian history well... I guess I don't really have to if I'm just doing a faction set, though.
    I'm also doing a new Rome fac, with one of the old Caesars.

  • I can't believe I've made 3 faction sets in 1 day...
    Anyways, here is New Rome. I'll try to think of a better name.

  • If you're doing a Leninist Bolshevik revival faction, my suggestion is not to go with the Kremlin but rather try these out for bases:


    With little bit of editing, you can make it so it has doorways and people are living in the statue or some such, other structures can be added as well.

    As for aerial shots of the Kremlin though, if you are persistent, as well as other monumental structure...

    Technological advance is an inherently iterative process. One does not simply take sand from the beach and produce a Dataprobe. We use crude tools to fashion better tools, and then our better tools to fashion more precise tools, and so on. Each minor refinement is a step in the process, and all of the steps must be taken.
