But they are introducing major new features like fuel. Almost every AI algorithm will have to be revised to take account of fuel. And that couldn't start until the fuel mechanisms had been written. Then everything's got to be retested for QA. Better to wait until it's all ready.

When it's ready. I'd rather have a DLC with a better AI at a later date. And I've already paid for it......

I hope that this diary will demonstrate how the carrier air bug has been fixed (and how carrier vs carrier combat will work). This is the top bugfix priority for many players.

The Anglicans mostly belong to a loose federation called the Anglican Church in North America. The Episcopalians belong to The Episcopal Church, which is more centralized.

The US part of the Anglican Communion has been through a major split. The liberal wing, who have kept hold of most of the historic buildings & investments, identify as Episcopalians. The evangelical & Anglo-Catholic wings, who have the growing demographics, identify as Anglicans.

I expected that I was going to see a clip of President Tsai. That GIF is.... definitely not what I expected to see! 😂🐷

The Glaswegian ladies were actually showing their deep knowledge of Chinese culture: eating, slurping, and chatting are ancient customs in village opera. I've also seen servers selling snacks in the aisles /during/ a performance of Aida in Beijing...

Good point. On further investigation, the map modifier is some sort of convert to Orthodoxy (possibly some version that exists only in his/her head, a bit like Western converts to Buddhism?). So maybe they are trying to normalize their belief system as well??

Sorry, it didn't occur to me that others couldn't see it. The map here says that it's been modified by an IG account - an extreme right-wing account. It's modified by adding an (impossibly) large Orthodox population in W.Europe. 'Orthodox' is dog-whistle code for 'E.European'.

It appears to be simple fabrication in support of an extreme right-wing ('alt-right') agenda. It claims to be a modification of an earlier map by an IG account, without any source. The earlier map is also unsourced, but at least looks plausible. More:

This map appears to have been modified to create anti-immigrant propaganda. More info at the end of this forum post:

The map appears to be anti-immigrant propaganda and the colouring in Western Europe was probably completely made up. More info here:

This map was made by an extreme right ('alt-right') anon who added substantial Orthodox populations in W.Europe to an earlier map. It's anti-immigrant propaganda. More info here:

This is bad news. Mr Abe's push for fixed-wing carriers prioritizes nationalist symbolism at the expense of the int'l co-operation needed to secure East Asia's free societies (JP, ROK, TW). That hurts UK interests in the region too.

That's a bit unfair. I have travelled from London to the North for under a tenner on several occasions (my record is £4.50 London to Crewe!) thanks to London Midland/LNWR undercutting Virgin. Where it exists, competition has worked. But it's never going to exist for most journeys

Huawei's alleged misbehaviour has already been discussed in public in a Vancouver courtroom. If Mme Meng's extradition proceeds, then we can expect the evidence to be presented in full, if it exists.
