(I Don't Know Why) But I Do

I'm working on the gui, there will be some changes, for example the tactical operations maps will be in 3d. Sadly there will be no Christmas demo, sorry.

A sidenote: remember the counsellors that popped up when the player was on the buttons screen? they were Tzipi Livni for the diplomatic options, Meir Dagan for the Mossad and Dan Halutz for the IDF. I wondered if it was somehow illegal to use those photos in the game so I sent a mail to the Israeli government asking if there was some legal issue. The little problem is that I received a response but yahoo mail put the answer in the spam folder, and I realized only after cleaning the folder that that mail could be legittimate! Its title was something like "re: answer from the office of the prime minister", at the moment I forgot I sent a request and I really thought it was spam. However, this is only to thank the Israeli government for their answer, regardless of the content (which I didn't read, my fault).
In any case I had already decided to change the pictures to bring some abstraction (Dan Halutz has been removed some time ago, so my game was already obsolete): now the player will have as counsellors David Ben-Gurion, Eli Cohen and Moshe Dayan; it's nothing special, just three pictures, as three phantoms from the past that help the player.

You're awsome! Keep it up, and I look forward to whatever is next.
