Almost all plants do actually move, or better: parts of them move during reproduction. Also some plants ain't sessile, certain desert shrubs live on while travelling with the wind. The most important part about a plant IMO is their autotrophicy. So I'd define a plant (for our purpose only): a living...

@noelte: you mean the big bad brain washing that was given to all east europeans by our russian oppressors? The one that is in NO way comparable to the much more elaborate and refined brain washing given to us by our american liberators? :twisted: Never trust a big brother. Never trust a smiling pol...

I suppose he is talking about a K6. Well, those K6 with 300-400 Mhz are very usefull: if you want a linux router. You can even play a few old games with them. But trying to run a 3D game with a S3? IIRC I replaced my S3 5-6 years ago. And my K6 400 Mhz 2 years ago. And I usually replace only when my...

Ablaze, your definition is what the computer gaming industry wants to make you believe is role playing about. I'm a roleplayer by heart since 15 years. I can play a character without having any attributes or skills. Just a scetch of paper outlining its habits and whereabouts. Roleplaying is a kind o...

Well, its not directly linear. And I also don't know how old this thread is. EU is a rather old prohgramm, but Johann (the lead programmer) is still making changes on it. Yes, its true, he id dedicating his free time to support a game thats only sold for a few bucks now. As far as I know it, each co...

EU does this very heavily.

Your research cost is dependent on the number, religion and nationality of your provinces.

Well, german would be one of the easier languages for grammar purposes, as the rigid english SPO order works in german as well. Sounds a bit boring and low level, but well.

@Black_Dawn:

Yes, most designers know the diea you describe from the paradox games. So centralisation will be part of the game I think. Though just one little hint: never ever use here the word that starts with an s, and ends with lider. :twisted:

I make so many spelling mistakes that no-one can say what kind of english I do use anyway ^^.

PS: Hungarian is no european language. Isn't it closer related to turk languages (those spoken in Turkmenistan and even further eastwards) then with the indoeuropean languages? :D
