There are no East Germans in FPG. Just Soviets, US, UK and West Germans. We do plan to expand and have East Germany, Poland, Canada, Netherlands, and a few others down the road. I'm sure we will see other stuff as well once folks get to modding things too.
Discounts. That is a Matrix/Slitherine thing. My guess is probably not since these are two very different games, but we'll have to wait some weeks and see.
Yes the Urban terrain is a bit tough to look at, but we had to find a color that did not trigger the in game map reader with a false type. That took a few tries and also drove MR even madder at times. As we said above there are always trades to be made when doing a game. At times you have to abstract things to make them fit the scale and scope of what you are doing. And if the maps really bother you there will be ways to spin your own down the road.
We are working hard on Southern Storm! Back from Origins, recharged, new ideas and back to work!!
