I take issue with your analysis of Bataan/Corregidor, which are treated in this game as the same hex/base, so when Bataan falls, Corregidor also falls. You pointed out that eventually the other American commands in PI followed Wainwrights orders to surrender so what I said was true with a slight delay. You pointed out that was not the case in Malaya as Singapore fell last, that's why I did not site Malaya/Singapore as an example. However, again my Dutch example was valid as well as there are many empty or undefended hexes that in RL were Japanese once the nation surrendered, long before every base/dot were taken and did not require many mini-invasion to take them. The major point of contention might lay in India when and if how many base/VPs would have to fall before the Indian national movement started a revolt. I am not asking that a new mod be developed but an agreement between opponents would suffice. maybe a partial remedy would be to allow partial para troop elements to be dropped on these isolated/empty bases in order to flip them sooner and if occupied by a surrender enemy nation the unit be put in strategic or rest mode so they don't fight, since their nation had already surrendered. The Japanese didn't surrender until September 45 so this did happen to them once they surrendered as a nation with still 5 million plus troops overseas, everything was automatically surrendered.
