From: Zagreb, Croatia
I guess I was "victim" of changed rules for Italian surrender. I was playing Soviets in 1941 scenario and managed not only to clear the Balkans, but to export the bolshevism into Italy as well. First northern, then southern part of the Italian boot fell. To my astonishment, I noticed that somehow, in the previous turn, German AI dropped an airborne unit to Lybia and voila, Mussolini established himself in Sicily and together with Lybia preserved Italy in war together with whole of Italian fleet, stuck in Adriatic for lack of supplies. Naturally, Allied AI couldn't care less about Italy, so Mussolini outlived Hitler.
Is it possible to remove Lybia from the list of required territories so that Italy actually surrenders when its mainland is conquered?
Or at least, replace Sicily with Sardinia. Sardinia is always invaded by AI due to its resource there (I wonder what does it represent), but Sicily is not high on the priority list.
