Democracy is VERY hard to balance. Im assuming I did a good job of it as sales are so good, but with the iminent release of 1.0.1 I'm paranoid my adjustments have thrown the balance out. There are so many different variables, and different starting conditions for each mission thats its seriously hard to get a setup which works fairly accross all of them. Especially given a constantly variable difficulty level.
I was hoping to upload 1.01 tonight, but I think I need another 24 hours testing and balancing before I do that. Then I need to do a 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 patch. I think when you write a computer game you need to multiply any estimate for balancing time by at least 4.
