ok, so this is kinda a pointless feature, but i think being able to read newspapers and or magazines (inquierer anyone? (infack corect speling anieone?)). mostly this would be comic relief, though it could serve as an indicator to a countries opinion of you.

"EXTRA, EXTRA! President George W. Bush found to be an alien expelled from Cydonia!"

i like the idea, even if its mostly for comic relief ^_^

THis has been suggested since the idea of making the UFOpaedia like a "mini" internet. Good idea though.

We had also talked about including additional stories in the end-of-month report, depending on alien activity and alien scores in countries. More stories=aliens are taking control there.

It would be nice if nearing the end/attack on cydonia people would become more and more aware of the aliens their goal and the existance of x-corps...

Sounds like a good idea to me to keep people "informed" about the war. Maybe people would actualy get out of your way durring terror missions.

It worked quite nicely in sim city but this feature would start to repeat itself pretty quicly. It did in Sim City at least..
There's no need for a sig..
