Well what a testament to the quality of the human species you are. Your parents must be very proud of you.

My goal for the day: Be glad I'm not in San Diego. Instead I'm surrounded by normal people :)

Oh come on. You can't justify saying Africa is responsible for the disease just because it may have originated there (there is no proof of such an hypothesis by the way, but there is some strong evidence surrounding SIV and related viruses. The first recorded infection in the US was in 1952, and man...

I found it offensive, but nothing to get whipped up about. HIV/AIDS is no laughing matter as it's a real problem. A nuclear holocaust is (as far as I'm aware) a fictional problem. One can be laughed about (at the moment, fingers crossed), the other cannot. And the inference that AIDS is an African p...

With a greater resolution does it display more detail when zoomed in during play, or does the game engine take any correct aspect ration bitmap and rescale it for in game use?

Stick to the same resolution as the original I'd say.

I doubt it. With the reduction the blobs become more of an undefined shape rather than something you can point to, and as it's up to the end user to scale it for the bitmap map they use (and also placement in the final map), then you can't lock down to a set of co-ordinates for them to use in cities...

You could use a blank sailable.bmp for the ships perhaps, and have 3 types of satellite using the sub, carrier and destroyer perhaps? Hardly ideal for the carrier as it can launch other things - mini satallites maybe?

The games industry is a hard market, but it seems that IV have carved a unique selection of games to choose from. I hope Subversion does as well as DEFCON - better even as that'll roll the company on for another year or two, and another game or two. Keeping the faith is a difficult thing :)

The only, ridiculously complicated and probably impossible, manner in which you could do it. Would be to alter the font used on the DEFCON/LAUNCH DETECTED/ETC exclamations, such that the letter sequence DEFCON would equate to whatever you want to display. The problem here obviously being that the s...

I couldn't find where it stored the DEFCON at the top or the defcon word that printed itself one letter at a time (i.e. when defcon modes changed) I did find where it said "DEFCON %d in XX;XX" and I changed that to "DECEMBER 2%d in XX:XX" and then hacked the binary to make it co...
