Without doing calcs (because how it should be calculated exactly is something, along with SciAdv example I have above, we would need to decide together), the short answer is Yes!

However, if we are already saying higher arms manufacturing means amount you can produce and quicker speed to produce, then there is already a built-in advantage having higher manufacturing indexes.

However, however, I’m basically claiming in my example above that a higher SciAdv means greater/easier access to more advanced technology that can be used in a product, like a tank. So, yes, you should also be able to claim greater/easier access to manufacturing capabities than I, insofar as you have much more manufacturing occurring in your country. I would think it is something factored in after designing the tank, though. Like first figuring out a tank will have a certain base cost, but when you factor in access to manufacturing capabitilites, you then see savings per build.

It's more to give anyone 15 billion or below more of a incentive to stay and rp. I'm also worried that it can lead to something overly unbalanced. I understand that on paper I should beat people under 15 billion but when my arms industry is equal to both Nedea and you combined. I don't want a unfair advantage against roughly equal opponents.

Understood. I do believe though, that if you were to go through the process of sizing your forces and then prepositioning them, that the need then to RP moving them would result in other (weaker) nations being able to move. You can’t have all your forces everywhere all the time, so by saying some are here, some there, areas of the map you don’t have forces open up for adventurism by other players. Also, if we declare where things like our arms manufacturing or agriculture are produced, then theoretically, you could lose control over some of your vast manufacturing to a combined seige or something. May not be possible to beat you in the end, but it opens up the possibilities to think about ways we could beat you. I don’t think China believes it can beat the US one-on-one in a fair fight. However, it is really hoping to overwhelm those US troops nearby (not nearly enough!) and achieve a fait accompli before the US can move enough military assets in to turn the tide. That is what would be possible if we knew your forces were concentrated in the western hemisphere, then Croxoco shouldn’t worry about encountering you near their turf, because that’s where a majority of their forces are likely stationed. Enough to probably overwhelm anything you’d be willing to expend on that side of Enkon. We can achieve balance through RPing the logistics.

You can also voluntarily limit the size of your forces (benefit being more resources per soldier) and/or RP tying up your vast warmachine in trying to control your frontier borders with the tribes in the unclaimed territories near you. Need to define it, but Athretvari has part of its forces devoted and prepared for an attack against Fri Athka. Those forces will basically be locked in position across from Fri Athka and not used regularly elsewhere in the RP. That limits the number of forces I can use elsewhere. Maybe you have a similar thing going with those areas near you.

My thoughts are that my Navy is more like China's which is more defensive in nature. Depending on who I'm going to war with I may need to protect the sea convoys for trade. Luckily the bay is easily protected from the ocean. I'd argue the easiest way to invade me is through the ODR. It's also why I made a move to trade with Fri Athka. My belief is that's the only way I could invade the UTR is using that island as a staging ground.

I have a lot of concerted industry and agriculture. I'm also overly reliant on my Navy it shipping things.

Have a happy Fourth of July weekend my American friends!

Have a happy 4th of July and stay safe this weekend.

Let it be known. It takes exactly 3355 days to reach 20 billion population. Woo-hoo!

Congrats.

So I've finally been able to do something being post-grad that I've been wanting to for a long time.

I been watching all the Star Wars movies and shows in chronological order. I am very close to wrapping it up with concluding with the Mandalorian then watching sequels. I have to say, with how much a dud the sequels are, Disney did such a good job addressing a ton of the plot holes left by George Lucas in the prequels and original trilogy. Clone Wars and Rebels TV shows were phenomenal in introducing many well-around impactful characters without much contradiction to the main story arch plus they all added so much context for the actions/decisions made in the main movies. Nearly every character we saw in the movies (Prequel and OG Trilogy) in my view was improved on in most aspects.

My only desire now, sorta "If I was the Executive Director of Star Wars - Disney" or whatever that titles is called, is that they expand on the non-jedi aspects of the show. I see Rouge One or Mando as golden examples. I want to see more of the regular lives of people within the stories such as a clone trooper or just really a bystanders who'd witness order 66 for example.

I also think Disney has to take an swing at the Old Republic Era. With majority of Old Republic Era content not being canon anymore they can (hopefully take some of the SW Legends/Non-Canon inspiration) have a second chance at making films and not have Lucas or Mark Hammill silently judging.

Dash of Potential Spoiler
The rumors regarding the Ahsoka movie with the Ezra Bridger plotline is another direction I'd love to see the franchise go. Completely open to their own creative desires with the uncharted portions of the galaxy.

Overall, totally recommend any of the TV shows or movies. I think when watched in order is a great story and has some really good rewatchability.

You got a lot more discipline than I do. I’ve been trying to watch them all too, but haven’t had the foresight (or maybe patience) to watch them in order. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve rewatched the first episodes of Clone Wars only to jump to a movie, or another series, and go back and start over. lol…

But, I agree with you 100%. Disney has done a helluva lot better than Lucas! It’s almost like Lucas saw the Star Wars universe in black and white, while Disney sees it in technicolor. I just wish they’d not feel the need to always introduce annoying, “cute” characters. I blame the Jawas and early-Yoda for this, which was really magnified with Jarjar Binks. IE, the Omiga character in Bad Batch (which I love otherwise). She makes no sense, not to mention a female *cannot* possibly be an “identical genetic clone” of the original Jango Fett. No f*ing way I can swallow that “science.” But I digress.

I would love to see some Old Republic stuff. Hell they got tens of thousands of years to play with there.

While I would like to see a lot more non-jedi stories, I think the Force is kinda fundamental to the ST universe. Without it, would kinda be like GOT without the dragons. They weren’t in every GOT episode, but damn if they didn’t steal the scene whenever they appeared! They can do a lot with the force but not focused on the Jedi. It is supposed be kinda like mutations in the Marvel Universe, since the midi-/meta-chlorians are ubiquitous throughout life in the ST galaxy, there should be lots of lifeforms with the Force, though most probably don’t know beyond they are extremely “lucky.” It might be cool to see the stories of some of these characters.

I personally enjoyed the side stories more than the new trilogy. A lot of it might be to me disliking all the old cannon they threw out. I personally would recommend Solo and Rouge one. The new trilogy wasn't bad and things where carried over from the old cannon but I wished for more open ended movies. Maybe make Finn the focus of the first movie and set it up during the warlord era after the collapse of the empire. The second movie follows Rey and her meeting fin after the first movie. You hear what happened to the republic and the OG Star Wars people and the third movie deals with the first order.
