A wonderful beginning. Makes me think of Suzerain written in choicescript. Very clearly a labor of love, I do hope to see you continue. At times feels a bit incoherent in the dialogue. Love the Military Guard Backround update. Ended up being my first playthrough. I can’t wait to see how deeply you can flesh out the country & story. You’ve already done an incredible job incorporating factions, characters, and the desperation of a people living through interesting times.
In the military guard job we could support a coup and the option said it could start the imperial ambition of the government and increase influence, so could we turn cordillaria into the US of South America in terms of power and influence
Also if we go commie, would the US try to pull another Vietnam war and invade us?
I doubt it, when we travel to the US as diplomats, Vietnam is mentioned as if it is still happening, even if it ends, anti-war sentiment must still remain strong so I doubt whoever the president is will try to start a new war.
Yes, in fact I even noticed some of that errors in the dialogue area and I intend to correct them in the future, besides, thank you for your observation.
This was my first idea, but as the first chapter was supposed to serve as a prologue, this action would lead to an extreme change that would completely alter the course of the story, so it was practically untenable to do this so early.
Well, analyzing the political context of the United States in 1976 (when the player’s presidency begins), I find it very unlikely that the administration of both Thomas Ford and Jimmy Carter would be willing to fight another war after the trauma of Vietnam. However, the US will still be involved in the so-called “condor operation” and this operation will interfere a lot in Cordillaria.
Exactly, the only one I can think that would be willing to face a direct military confrontation, would be Ronald Reagan and even he would be cautious at the time.
Would we be able to start our own nuclear program, or no nukes for us
That couldn’t be, because before the MC events, the Tlatelolco treaty was signed throughout Latin America, which still prevents the purchase, sale and manufacture of nuclear weapons today.
And I have a question about natural resources. Is the oil on the country’s land or in the sea? and Is there the possibility of developing a tourist economy in the country?
Damn international treaties designed to keep the world safe by keeping world ending weapons from being used and made
A bit of both just like Venezuela and yes, tourism might be possible during economic plans development.
I actually considered the idea, but I was unable to find a route where nuke developments would be a viable possibility. Also, as far as I’m concern both Latin-America and Africa are forbidden from having nuclear arsenal by many international treaties.
But South Africa has successfully developed nuclear weapons, right?
They almost developed in the 80s, but quite surprisingly, both the United States and Soviet Union worked together to prevent the progress of the nuclear program in South Africa. Soon they became the first nation to peacefully give up their nuclear program.
However, I can tell you that they had six uranium-based atomic bombs, and that they would not have given them up had there not been a sudden change in the political situation related to apartheid.
Examples include India and Pakistan, and, although they never achieved the atomic bomb, Brazil and Argentina.
Yes, it’s true, but one thing must be seriously considered; the financial cost of the development of a nuke.
As far as I know, developing a single nuclear weapon costs around $85 million today, and even though I was unable to find a trustworthy source about development cost in the 70s, I estimate that the value was significantly higher at the time.
So, for now It’s quite impossible to imagine that a post-revolution country with a broken economy and a precarious infrastructure would be able to develop such weapons. Although, I’m still open to the idea if I find a viable possibility.
I am part of the spectrum that is skeptical of the idea but I still keep an open mind about it because this issue is in the hands of @hock45 .
You can pull a North Korea and we can get nukes from Pakistan giving us data or Cuba could of learned something’s and sold it to us
I’m part of the spectrum that want it because big bombs go big boom, and also what type of dictator doesn’t want nuclear weapons
