So, are the ai the only ones allowed to call reserve troops. I'm asking because I got pushed out of england because they called reserve troops out of their ***, and they all have high levels of veterancy so there's nothing i can do

Also, you may already realize, but there appears to be a bug when taking an enemy controlled city, that originally belonged to an allied city state. Crashed multiple times when doing so in my game, but it worked after I declared war on the city state.

Are there any plans for the Italian Partisans in this?

Everything works well but when I try to reload a saved game and while loading it crashes. Am I doing something wrong?

@kilbotz We've been experiencing a weird crash that occurs whenever the AI has a carrier in the Earth scenario so we had to disable carriers in that scenario. We're working on it

How do I get air craft carriers for the Japanese in the 1937 map?

most of the times when I liberate a city from a "city-state" the game crashes.
