Re: What other games do you play ?

I played board Civilization once, and it was fun, but the game can really get too long when there are lots of players or when board state gets tricky. I tried Lords I, but this was too ancestral for me. :-) I really like the mix of turn-based economy and real-time combat. You got time to think about...

It must be at least five years old, and it was some post-ww2, alternative history, weird tales, sci-fi mix of ideas.

This is absolutely unnecessary, if only efile keepers used Sapper's approach.

In a properly balanced efile you don't need to use diff...

Effectively, the better is to add the units in the same order than they have in the efile (when they have the same cost) to show up in same sequence.

Ah true! IDK why I didn't realize this: just keep the order from efile, and it should be the same in PPool!
