- All GLA: Technical Training general's power was removed.

Limiting the money Generators, I have to say I dislike that, all the other changes sound great, but that one I have to say I am not fond of, they offer great later game finances, couldn't you just increase how much it costs to make them?

If you are going to limit the money generators, make it so the CPUs do not get a passive income from god. Otherwise it is always in their favor...>.<

It is true that a Microwave beam that large, and powerful enough to travel through the atmosphere without dissipating would have destructive effects on anything in its path, not just infantry.
