@guizzy Basically the same thing I thought. Visually beautiful, but other than that, it's a Hollywood action movie. It's not really GitS. Doesn't have the complicated political background and philosophical themes that make the franchise what it is. I thought the actor who played Batou did a good job.
The Ch`ing win again. This playthrough felt like it followed historical events more closely than any other so far, but the Allies won in history, and they never have won in any of my test games. I think I'm just going to have to uniformly reduce all the Ch`ing unit strengths.
@thor I remember that browsers - I think Firefox was one with this feature - could be set up to prompt whether to accept cookies from a site on the first attempt to set them, and then remember the choice. That was with the existing API; it has always been de facto up to the browser whether to do what the server requests re: cookies. But this feature was removed from popular browsers years ago.
map design coming together here... I'm probably about ready to print a colour version as upgrade from the B&W laser print I've been testing on
