Decision of Fate

I've removed ads on this website in order to help out my friend, a Army Reserve Military Intelligence Officer. He is trying to get a book on WWI Tanks published through Amazon Kindle's Scout Program. Everyone who votes gets a free e-copy of the book of its published. If he wins and his book is published, I will leave this website ad free.

You can read the first few chapters of the book at the above link. All you need to vote is an Amazon account. Thanks for the help!

P.S. I know this has nothing to do with Tropico, but I can do whatever I want with my website. :)

Tropico 5: Waterborne Expansion Coming December 17th!

Explore the full potential of the ocean industry in ‘Waterborne,’ the first major expansion for infamous city-builder/political sim Tropico 5. The future of Tropico lies on its shores – and now renowned leader El Presidente wants to spread his reign out into the sea and take advantage of lucrative new industrial opportunities by constructing waterborne structures across the coast. 
The expansion features water based game mechanics for the first time in the history of the series and comes with a slew of new features and enhancements, such as water traffic, larger coastal areas and new events to keep even the most seasoned island ruler on their toes.
Build brand new offshore alternatives for defense, food, energy, entertainment and even housing. Organize and coordinate transport to production buildings like the Oyster and Kelp farms, construct tidal power plants as an eco-friendly alternative to nuclear power and build luxurious floating apartments. Launch military submarines to bolster your naval forces – or create an exotic bathysphere attraction to compliment your bustling tourist paradise. 
The ‘Waterborne’ expansion for Tropico 5 includes an all-new campaign spanning six epic scenarios, new dialogue and story. Plus, all new content and offshore gameplay works with existing sandbox maps and multiplayer modes. 
‘Waterborne’ for Tropico 5 is out to download for PC via Steam on December 17th for $19.99.
