    Well I have two new suggestions for custom game:
    - For cannons we have for now three options I suggest new one: towers and walls (here nations can build stone wall and towers but cant build cannons)
    - my new suggestion for start option is "Two nations" where every player or AL start with two nations (which choose players) and can not capture any enemy peasants, centers and mines.

    So with this new start option is "Two nations" players can play interesting nations combos as: Russia and Ukraine, Turkey and Tatars (when they come out), Austria and Hungary, Poland and Lithuania, England and Scotland, ...

    first idea: i think, it's a bad idea. Walls should always be related to cannons: otherwise players will end up sitting in invulnerable fortresses.

    second idea: i like it a lot!

    Very easy to make this in startingsettings.cfg, but I see one issue, the uneven amount of nations currently. (21)
    Eg.
    TUR & ALG
    AUS & HUN
    SPA & POR
    VEN & PIE
    ENG & SCO
    SWE & DEN
    FRA & SWI
    UKR & RUS
    POL & PRU
    BAV & SAX
    NET & ?

    Whatever you do, with 2 nation unions, someone is always left out with no partner, which is a disadvantage.

    Edit: maybe a 3 nation union could work (21/3 =7), but if they add more nations then that doesn't work anymore either.
    Eg.
    SPA & POR & FRA
    ENG & SCO & NET
    UKR & POL & RUS
    SWE & DEN & PRU
    SAX & BAV & SWI
    AUS & HUN & PIE
    TUR & ALG & VEN

    P sure he just means you can pick 2 of your favourite ice cream flavor nations and use them both from the start, giving you peasants of each.

    Like having a second nation selection drop-down.

    Ok maybe the first idea is bad but you must to admit that each nation need some bonus defense building except towers.

    I think the second idea is very good. Two nations are perfect:)) Thx for offer Vladeks. First one is not good. Because of lack of artillery:)) No one likes an endless game:))
