Indeed. Once France was integrated, the game was really easy. Finances was no issue whatsoever and I could fund several rather large wars in succession.

No random new world? Shame... What do you think of it as a new option?

Well.. It's an interesting but undeveloped option. The maps they generate are really not all that.. detailed. Lots of round shapes, insane sea zones and gamebreaking land zones. Not to mention I have encountered land masses with a blue hue over them. They are considered sea provinces so are un-negotiable by troops. However, since they aren't really a sea province, they also cannot be patrolled by ships. No, the random new world is not a good option yet. Although I love the idea of it.

EDIT: Here are two games with random new worlds. The maps look OK.

Turkey and Brittany/France. The Turkish map is a mess though. The north-eastern continent can be crossed with ships by the smaller strip of land since the same sea province covers both sides.

BUG!
After having played the game for a few days, here's my analysis:

Apparently the Russian planes like Catalina are made out of Stalinium and can't be destroyed by conventional means. Ramming them is the only way to be sure... aaaand actually, it's not. Sometimes they survive even that, so it's a good idea to carpet bomb them beforehand.

Unfortunately, crude Stalinium wing structure is no match for ancient Japanese plane wings, traditionally slow-forged out of finest tamahagane steel for centuries, as per the prophecy of the great war in which brave warriors would lead their metal birds to the battle, kept in utmost secrecy until the right time.

Basically what we see here is the clash of the titans, the materialized willpower of Joseph Stalin against absolutely perfect combination of iron, carbon and oxygen on atomic level interwoven with the spirits of the greatest Japanese swordsmiths of 2nd millennium.

Someone should really tell Gaijin that Japanese aircraft are actually made out of paper and that Russian wood is just as flamable and fragile as any other.
Actually Japanese aircraft aren't made of paper - Japanese aircraft were all-metal before many allied ones were, and were also very light and not all that fast....In terms of force-loading on a Zero, it's actually structurally stronger than most US aircraft of the early war.

People assume Japanese planes are fragile because they didn't have self-sealing fuel tanks and used to catch fire easily, but in War Thunder they're usually only carrying a very small load. Besides which, they don't tend to take many hits in game... the tricky part is hitting them. Late-war Japanese planes aren't actually much more lightly armoured than US ones.

And Russian wood IS less flammable and less fragile than other wood. It was actually a wood-laminate "alloy" for want of a better word: essentially wood treated with a special kind of plastic which made it stronger, non-combustable, stronger and rot-proof.

Never thought free to play games could be as much fun as World of Tanks :D
(images clickable for fullsize screenshots)

A list of some of the tanks I currently own. I've not progresses a lot yet. But low-tier battles are fun too.
Image

Gonna do a battle with this baby :D
Image

Oooh, confrontation battle. Soviets vs Nazis :mrgreen:
Image

And off we go, hunting some Germans.
Image

Oh, I found some enemies. Time to get shootin'.
Image

Oh, enemies found me too. It's a heavy tank, it can take a few shots, but it didn't last long :tongue:

Well, tis a Churchill Mk.IV I believe, your main problem is that you will pretty much always be significantly outgunned. Good as the 6pdr is for a gun of it's class (better than the QF 75mm armour penetration wise) it will always be outclassed by larger calibre German guns.

It's the Churchill III. For its tier, it's got above average armor, the gun has low damage, but decent penetration, and an amazing rate of fire. I love it. Sometimes I get destroyed quite quickly, sometimes I got over 5 kills on my record. I'm not playing very strategic. I just love to drive and shoot and get in some action :)

I just started playing this too. Here's my mediocre town. We struggled with population for a while but upon tearing down many parts of the town center, moving orchards and farmland further out to make room for houses, we boomed. I am now struggling to provide food at the same rate the town grows.

I too have been playing Banished. No screens, but my first town is also going quite swimmingly. I've given up for now, in the hope that early access will bring new features or an "endgame" to work toward.

Yes. The game is a neat little game but it doesn't feel like a €20 game or whatever cost it has in Euros. It feels like a sweet little minigame that can provide a few hours of fun. In a way, it's quite soothing.

With population booming (124 adults, 17 students and 48 children), my dear town can look forward to an even bigger growth in the future. This is how she looks now.

You know those times when you play TTD and you have to level half a city to make space for your railway tracks?

Building railway tracks in Factorio can be the same sometimes. Except with laser turrets and giant space bugs involved.
