After releasing version 0.1 we realized that our original desire to have giant countries was unfeasible and understandable for game play. User feedback stated that it caused performance loss and inhibited game play. We might have a solution to this problem. While staying true to Phillip K Dick's original idea while having to make some leeway for performance and game play, we believe we found a nice middle ground that works for everyone. Germany is split into 4 major sections (from the start) Germany (Third Reich) consists of all major German holdings west of the former Soviet Union, The Eastern Block (Former Soviet Union and Baltics), South Germany which consists of German holdings in South and Central America, and the German Provinces of the Middle East and Africa (GPMEA) which consists of German holdings in the Middle East and Africa. Japan remains a little bit tricky as it's holdings consist of 75% of the worlds population and therefore will most likely need revision on its borders with the puppet state of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (GEACPS) and possibly a "Oceania" puppet to be added.
Once again we require your feedback to determine if this is what you as a player would like or if we need more smaller puppet states. All feedback is appreciated. Please leave your thoughts on this post and we will take it into consideration. Thank you for following our development!
