I download NSB now, I’m actually looking forward to the tank design quite a bit. How they handle production efficiency is one of my concerns. It wasn’t an issue in the ship designer. I don’t expect the AI do to a competent job,but with the auto design function maybe it will be adequate. Although, I agree with Kevin that Sword of the stars was the last game where it had a huge impact. The mods in planetfall were also important but that was different
There is plenty of other things, in the expansion that I’m looking forward to. I play Germany a lot, and Russia a fair amount. So I’m looking forward to the new focus tree, logistics, and rail guns.
I honestly ready to move on from HOI IV. But in the weird position, thanks Covid, off working of my backlog. New world was bust for me, Old world is now my I’m bored I need a strategy game fix.
But there is really no game I’m dying to play, so I’m going to enjoy NSB (hopefully) until some shining new things distracts me.
