Hey Core!

How about posting the stuff like you did for Gundam Sim, once it is
translated, it sounds cool.
For those interested, we are playtesting some variations on the Gundam Sim
and would like to say Core's translation has opened up a whole new world of
quick and easy wargamming. Just last night we (my nephew and I started in at
about 6pm, and stopped when we looked at the clock at ten, with four or five
games played with several snack breaks et al.) I hope to do an expanded Sim
site soon, and Core willing, I may try to do some things with Fortress.
Check out his site, it rocks.
