Hey gang. I highly recommend Kyiv if anyone is looking for a travel destination)

I enjoyed reading the conversation a few pages back about downscaling parts of the game to make it more manageable, and I think it could be applied to just about every aspect of the game.

Character stats could be boiled down to something like single stats to represent competencies with individuals, groups, institutions/laws, and combat with single-digit ranges, plus one or two skill equivalents for specialization (duelist, engineer, farmer, critic) that give percent bonuses to relevant actions, and just freeze player stats from sign-up.

I'm interested in the idea of also shrinking the map by changing the basic unit of space from city to province. In terms of battles, things could look more like the grand campaign mode from RTK X, in which as long as there is someone contesting the province, anyone else can opt in to combat that has a stake in the province - I think this would motivate people to not turtle and reward decisive action. Especially if cities are reduced from distinct, stand-alone spaces for development to points of contestation on a larger map that offer a smaller range of resources for combat. That is, reduce city stats from four-digit numbers down to one or two, and just have stats for gold, food, defense, and revolt.

I join soon after I got my 1st job.

Now, I've been through 1 divorce and in the middle of jumping to 2nd marriage..........

:roll:

If that's not enough, V5 ended long before my divorce. Some part of me even thinking, that the long hiatus from V5 to V6 is part of the reason why I got a divorce. :|

I mean... once you stop the drug... the pain just unbearable.

Demo allows you to play Liu Bei, Cao Cao or Sun Jian for 36 turns.

I can't remember which version is like this but basically battles are fought directly on the map.

Civil portion seems a bit different, more like Sims of the day, you assign officers to positions that grant you stuff...

Full version I think comes Feb 28th
