    Play one session with us and you will regret that statement.
    There are lots of game-breaking bugs that have to be fixed, and lots of information and UI-structure that has to be added. Right now, it is kinda hard for new players to know what to do, and they will be put right into the action the minute the game starts. I want to add some basic info for each player, like the classic "this is your nation and this is what you should do"-text, a short opening cinematic (could just be some intro music on a black screen with some text coming up etc).

    EDIT: i wouldn't really mean "lots" - it just has to be added since there is none now.

    Model-wise though, i agree that we are pretty much finished, i only have three models that are still missing on my list, and those are the graf zeppelin (carrier), Yak-9 (soviet interceptor) and the american cruiser (which will be based on the USS Indianapolis - the cruiser that transported the Little Boy to Tinian). Also, Vuorma has to finish the He 111 and the italian tank, then we're done!

    @xRiotZx: I'd say that frankly, you have a history of acting like an arrogant assface. I haven't seen any of that for quite some time though and i appreciate the kind of constructive activity you ahve been showing lately, and that is what i was reffering to.

    Well, i barely can, though the trick is that i use 256x256 textures (most high-size models on this site have larger texture sizes), and most of the tanks, well... they are really jsut boxes with some garnish on them, when you think of it. Also, the MPQ archives that maps consist of are very good at compressing the models, so you end up only increasing the map size by about 50% of the models actual size when you import it.

    Map is at 7.5mb now though, so we are running out of space formore models (just in time).

    And yeah, three weeks sound reasonable, we will try to have open beta released by then.

    Listen assface, V-2 is way overpowered. If Germany gets the V-2, than the US should get access to nukes. :)

    Fingolfin already said they would have V-2s. Ass-face. :ogre_icwydt:

    And all nations have access to nukes.

    How is it historically inaccurate if all countries have nukes? most of the Major powers had a nuclear project at some point, Germans more secretive cause Hitler regarded it as a Jewish Science, but they succeeded in creating a dirty bomb I believe.

    Also will you be adding some other secret research? like the Japanese bio-warfare research and etc.

    Also if you need extra testers id be happy to help ^.^

    The first and only country with a nuclear weapon during World War II was the United States of America, hence the inaccuracy... The other countries didn't acquire nukes until quite some time later. I believe Russia became a nuclear super power in 1953, correct me if I am wrong.

    In case some of you didn't know, they're planning to make this map free to for players to do what they want. So, if Italy(for example) wants to research nukes in the game, they can. They would be quite vulnerable to attacks though.

    Yeah well, i am pretty sure the germans were researching nukes, even though they got their ass kicked before they could ever put it into serious action.

    @VTZ: Yeah, the rear turret is a really cool idea :)
    Kinda cool how they can fly with half their wing blown off though, LOL!

    As of all the balance questions: i wanted to keep a kind of melee-aspect of this game where players fight on somewhat equal terms - surely, the factions have different focuses which dictate how you play them, but it feels kinda lame that some players would be robbed of several critical gameplay elements to obey historical accuracy.

    Think of it as this; as i have explained the nuke research system so far, it is based on diverting economy and factories to the development rendering you somewhat weakened in the process. It is natural that the US would be among the first to achieve this, since they have a lot of cities and factories naturally secured and well-defended on their continent, aswell as possible conquerings they might have had during the game. If some other country has reached the role of a leading super power at this point, they will surely have the kind of economic strength required to research nukes before them - just as Germany might have been if they had not been on the retreat by then.
