The layout of this blog and the forum has been aligned. I am particularly proud of the additional navigation line in the phpbb header. I will populate it with links soon. Elsewhere the design on the google code wiki is continueing. It is a tough nut to crack so far. I am worried that the game will not be that much fun and I simply want the best (not wasting the time for programming later). The original Imperialism was good but had many mediocre features. Some can be improved easily, others are more difficult. For example the whole economic/trading/influence system and the diplomatic hegemony system over minor nations is still not thought through.
So, work will continue and when coding starts I will also go for a public advertising attack. Stay tuned. 🙂
