    ... 2. Regarding the civilizations, bear in mind that you're only ever seeing two at once still -- red and blue, whatever you assign them to.  Even in the base game you can do greek on greek if you like.  But now you can do any of the combinations including (or not) Japanese.  It's kind of like the AI Types in AI War (although now with the dual-type AIs I guess that's a hair different).  Having all the factions out on the board at once is definitely not a goal of mine: it would make the games way longer, the maps way bigger, the maps way more crowded, each turn far slower, the faction flag colors progressively less clear, and the interface impossible to handle (because of the need to show the stats for more factions at the top of the screen, and having no room for that).

Just an idea, but what if 'one' of the two entries at the top were a 'selected faction' window, so i hold the mouse cursor over the japanese unit and the info at the top is for the japanese faction, but if i move the mouse over the norse for instance, the display window at the top is now for the norse faction.

Just an idea and i don't know how possible it is, but just an idea,

I would totally boot this game up if I could summon Jesus to bring about revelation across Skyward. You could animate the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse...

Are biblical revelations off-limits?

Yeah, pretty much any current religion is.

Though this makes me smile hugely, I have to say.  :D

I'm disappointed in the news that there will be no Spaghetti Monsterism faction.

I'd include Jediism (sp?), but we'd get sued in a hurry for that. ;)

Summon Sith Lord!

Summon Yoda to counter!

Well... we'd need a community made mod, then you wouldn't be liable.
A Sith mod.
A Discworld mod...
a lot of potential ;)

We can't do Christianity, but how about one of its inspirations, Zoroastrianism? Or Mithraism?

Ooh! I'd have to read up on them more, but from a casual look those actually do look super promising as very interesting expansion factions.  Nice one, thanks! :)
