Most Favored Trade PartnerEdit
Quoting from the readme file for v 1.1:
- "In the diplomacy screen, you can have your foreign minister figure out what subsidy will make you the favorite trade partner of a Minor Nation. Simply select any subsidy, hold the control key down, and click on that Minor Nation. The proper subsidy will automatically be placed. If there is no hope of being the favorite, it will place a 100% subisdy."
