@Skrewdriven: all those other races present during the constitution & declaration of independence were just standing around doing nothing while the tolerant whites did the heavy lifting. i think we can assume they wouldn't agree with the ideas that put the colonies on track of becoming a great place for everyone. i'm sure someone asked them.
@putaspongeon: i didn't use a guide if that's what you mean, setup my own tactic slots. it's just an easier game as far as keeping your allies alive and kicking ass because you can direct them to adapt to pretty much everything. i still prefer that system though, they really fucked the dog limiting team control in the sequels.
