    Civilian models sound okay to me, as they do help players differentiate which territory they're fighting in depending on how the civilians look or dress.

    Indeed, that was a Jak-9.

    And civilian models seem to me like a horrible waste of map space, and besides, what do you mean separates the way an 1940's american dress from how a german, finnish, russian, or british would? Does the germans wear tyroler hats and lederhosen while the finns walk around bare chested in the snow wearing brace trousers (which they totally do)?

    And what purpouse would they fill, would they just roam around the map like critters or be static like doodads?
    Wouldn't they block the way for normal units?

    Nah, i am pretty sure we are not gonan make civillians.

    lol..i have a better idea though.civilian slaughter of your own people will decrease your opinion amongst the people.good opinion*protecting your people*=a small income of gold
    bad opinion*manslaughter of your own people*=elimination from the game

    Well, borders are up to you to make, but yeah, the philipines has some cities, a harbour and an airfield, and lots of small islands to build coastal batteries on, so it could be a very potent naval base if you want it to.

    I also recently added Guam, a small island in the middle of the pacific that holds a single watchtower and naval battery held by the americans in the beginning of the game. It might not look like much, bit itis located straight in the path between the Philippines and Pearl Harbour, and is likely to spot incoming naval attacks at an early stage. If the americans (or more likely the british) holds New Zeeland, the space between it and Guam is relatively small and can easily be covered by two or three destroyers to seal it off from surprise attacks. Put another two destroyers spread between Guam and Midway, and you will have a wall effectively dividing the pacific into two.

    I am so looking forward to this map!
    The only thing that anoys me is that China has German soldiers.
    I dont mind that they have german tanks and ships but they should have there own infantry or atleast jap infantry.

    This is just my opinion and it WILL STILL BE the map of the year without chinese infantry =)

    @Hugomath: here is a map of the pacific islands. The colored symbols represent strongholds of importance by the different nations.

    British (orange): Port Morseby, Singapore, and Calcutta.
    American (blue): San Fransisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Hawaii.
    Japanese (brown): Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai.
    Chineese (purple): Shangsha, Chongqing, Xi'an.
    Soviet Union (red): Vladivostok.
    Neutral (pink) - theese would be regarded as potential strongholds.

    A city is regarded a stronghold when it holds important production facilities, has good defencive potential, and is located in a strategically opportune place.

    Guadalcanal is one of the smaller strongholds that is labeled so simply because it has the non-american airfield closest to the hawaiian islands, and since it is shielded by three smaller islands that can be used to construct an anti-air and sea barrier in front of the airfield.

    Note that the term "stronghold" is just a term i use to describe tactically important locations on the map, and has no influence on the cities in the actual game.

    It'll be soon, I guess.
    But anyway, a perfect game is better than a rushed one, so do take your time on it Fin:)
