@ubernaut I like to keep some mystery in the relationship.

Capturing Allied Territories with no Capital (givesBackOriginalTerritories)
So this has been kicked around for years and I wondered if we might take one last kick at the can...
Would there be any way to create a mechanism where-in if a power has lost its capital that it's territories can be captured by an Ally (and remain as their possession) until such a time that the Capital(s) is (are) liberated?
I haven't looked at this in years and years... and I cannot even recall whether there was some significant obstacle preventing such a feature... but here are my suggestions...
1] Global property "Ally occupies with no Capital"
2] Territory attachment "No Capital captured by Ally"
Just some food for thought.
Reason this Happens in TWW
So the reason this happens is the political property
<attachment name="relationshipTypeAttachment" attachTo="Allied" javaClass="games.strategy.triplea.attachments.RelationshipTypeAttachment" type="relationship"> <option name="archeType" value="allied"/> <option name="givesBackOriginalTerritories" value="true"/> </attachment>
givesBackOriginalTerritories values: "true", "false", or "default". default setting is "default", and "default" means false. If true, at the end of each politics phase, any territories originally belonging to the other player will revert to that players control.
