I've always been fascinated by the juggling and turbulent nature of the Cold War during the 50's and 60's era. So unlike a typical Cold War match I made a parody with two like superpowers vying for world prestige. Its a very short scenario however (roughly 20-30 minutes of game play if it is a single-player game), but if played with two human players it can offer some interesting situations.
I aimed to design the Corporate Republic of Vindikari after central and Western European nations, while the Socialist Federation of Hari Kor after central Asian societies. Additionally the Republic of Thabo was modeled after a small pacific islander society and Rajaville after India (these nations are AI only). I plan on expanding it with a few more players to extend game play and political dynamics. Though the map is small as I made the error of making it so I feel it is appropriate to have the close proximity of the two powers to be very threatening. Not only is there a nuclear deterrence but a military one.
Be mindful that there is a third minor-power that has just developed nuclear weapons as it may have a small bearing on the world's affairs.
I enhanced the rules so that you can win through wonders should you build (or capture) enough of them to do so, and reduced population limit to 150 to add to the challenge of spreading out military forces and civilian population over larger areas evoking the logistics planning skills of the player.
I hope you enjoy this vignette of a scenario, please feel free to post any thoughts for improvement!

:) I look forward to making more scenarios. If anyone has a request for theme (based on historical ideas) then I'll be more than happy to take them. I'm currently brewing up a variety of ideas from Medieval to Victorian era conquest to modern day peace-keeping (with that whole 'new world order' theme). I'm not certain on what I'm willing to pursue next but if anyone has thoughts on that then feel free to drop a note.

I'll keep that idea in mind, I however am not interested in incorporating a mod with my scenarios (as I am not willing to learn the technical know-how of it). Besides, I'm still testing out new coding concepts with the game itself to expand on more playability.
