    Invent DOT weapons that do shit all for damage but, last a long ass time and stacks.

    Invent sea going vehicles. ohh wait... I already did that with hover jeeps.

    Invent Invent useful vehicle lights.

    Invent tracer object that attracts all of your missiles at it without needing lock. See Target... Paint it with short lived tracker (sticky cannon/missile/bullet shot?)and fire your missiles till tracker or tank is lost. Enemy may remove tracker if they know where it is on the tank.

    Invent turret with an actual fucking AI. "ohh that guy is behind a rock and I see the hair of his head and I can't hit him BUT, I can get that guy walking over there!"

    Invent remote controlled armored vehicles so there are less deaths on the battlefield.

    Invent religion so we can get people to suicide bomb the enemy willingly.

    Invent law that lets women join the army. "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"

    So you would rather jiz nano-paste then super juice? You would rather look scrawny then look like a smaller hulk (without turning green)? You would rather be stupid but, have your brain hooked up to a network then be actually intelligent?

    I like this suggestion. Would it be randomly chosen which model you get when you join the server? I figure making a whole dialog to choose is just going to add complexity, but people would expect the model to stay consistent. If we have several models for each team, it could actually help you to distinguish who people are.

    Usually that's an option in the options menu, or somewhere in the main menu for cosmetic changes. No reason to have it pop up in game itself.

    I demand a hardcode for trickster to always be women when playing empires!

    but, yes its usually in the option menu somewhere. Although it being random would make things interesting.

    Actually a new longer mighty-looking cannon for NF med and heavy would improve the models a lot. I was thinking of it today.

    Also BE Cannon Barrels are modded inside while Jekotian ones are not. Why? Engineers, make them longer pl0x
