If you played Pegasus, then you may remember the USA Command Center having a flag that displayed the team color. For Evan, one of our Beta Testers, having the flag be a team color was in no way acceptable. He insisted it display a texture of the American Flag. Bug reports poured in with things needing American flags. After annoying the hell out of us, Evan finally got his wish - and you can thank him, the American flag appears all over for the USA faction. Evan has leveled up Patriotism - He is a True Patriot (even the Patriot appears in the mod).
