Hi NobleMaster I found out this is the official forum for suggestions and ideas I have already posted this on the Steam forum so I thought I'd post it here too.
Hope you like it
1. Capture Capital City
2. Nation States
3. Proxy States
1: I have this idea for a game mode called "Capture the Capital City" it's simple really once the enemies capital city is in your hands their territory becomes yours or if yours falls that's it game over.
2: Nation States don't expand even if they do it won't very very far they can be influenced by you and if you are very power they will respect you greatly.
If they are in debt you can bail them out and that means you can influence what happens there for a short time before the debt is paid back to you, or just conquer the hell out of them but it may damage your reputation.
3. This is an interesting one, you can send a a small number of soldiers disguised as soldiers from that nation then when you're ready start a "Rebellion" in 1 city which then becomes yours as more people follow your ideas and then you can name the city what you want.
You must then spread your warmongering as fast as possible by recruiting more soldiers and taking over, slowly destabilizing the country from within.
You would be playing as 2 nations technically if you decide to ally yourself with your own proxy state which the computer doesn't know then that's good, you can then act as a liberator and take down the nation with twice the man power.
You wouldn't be able to do with capital cities only with minor cities.
It's a rather expensive process I'd say about 2,000 GOLD if you want to go ahead with it.
Then once the country is taken over by both Proxy Country and your main one you can then either leave them separate or join them together in a Union.
Other Nations could do the same if they wanted but only if you select Proxy mode if such an option was there.
