"June 24
- Added Air Travel research item."

I feel like that much of an attack range increase could cause mayhem in the regions with smaller countries (Europe, Africa as key examples) where you can skip over the entire area...

What if, after researching "Air Travel" you could purchase an "Air Strike" much like Napalms and Nukes, it would be a purchasable attack that had the increased range...?

Air Travel is meant to be an end-game thing, which will change the way people are playing by enabling attacks from Asia to North America. Hence the high price, which is easily afforded as most of the countries are taken.

You should add maybe Air Planes and ships as a suggestion! We can have dog fights in the air:)! And with the ships branch em out with Subs and such and go little more in depth with it! But hell first time look this game looks amazing :D!

Can you add some kind of restriction so that people can not forfeit a game when they start losing and then jump right back in with starting forces again. Something like a 24 hour restriction from a game after you forfeit. That will at least make it more of a fair game. This "cheating" crap is annoying.

I checked with v2 satellites, he has at least 900 tanks. Napalmed the inf down to insignificance, but it is clear that an important battle was fought, but enemy tank starts are missing. This has been a reoccurring thing...

Perhaps in the future, make it impossible to re-join a game after it has been left? I'm finding myself almost defeating an empire, only to have the user leave the game and return with significantly more troops. Not a problem during the late game (20,000 troops is nothing by that point), but early/mid game can make that more problematic.

That's fixed in v2. You're still able to rejoin once, but your starting units are considerably less in favor of better defenses.

Nah, I don't want to bother people with that. It feels like I'm begging for them to click ads. Hell, I use adblock :P

Instead, I want to beg them to donate. That's more classy.

Speaking of classy, I've added bowties to the forum.

Would it be possible for you to add the ability to rename countries once taken over? Or would this disrupt the gameplay mechanics too much?

Just to clarify, would it be impossible because it would make the game too confusing or because it would be too difficult to engineer?

If the former, you could make it an option upon the start of a server. If the latter, I understand.

It should be like it was in the previous updates where you could play with friends at no cost, not this new update where you cant even play because either people take up spots or you need mastermind points. Although you can pay for MP i'm not going to waste 'my' money on something pointless.

I think there should be different maps not just the world like maybe add in a forest map and create random names for the different sectors and a galaxy map! (Maybe add in a mechanic that allows users to create their own map that will cost 75 m points?) Also add in more troops such as Dogs and Scouts and Rats! (Rats would carry a desease that takes out would take out Soldiers over time) And also increase your population happiness by putting up Churches and stuff! Each church would increase your population happiness by 4-5% :D and Something better than nukes that take out 50% of every troop in 4 countries (Even your own) which would cost 15-20 million and would take 3 hours too build! Also my last idea. an item that you can use on a country and stop them from producing units in it for 3 hours (Cost maybe 300k because it only stops 1 countries production) :D I hope some of these ideas will get implemented in the future!

After a while old gams that no one has won should be deleted, there are five or 6 games that have been in for years and no one can join them because all of the countries are taken
