Because they aren't fun. Most countries that don't get played either involve sitting on your ass and waiting for a chance to get clay so you can actually do shit or just stomping all of your uncivilized neighbors and then sitting on your ass until the end of the game because everyone else is so much more advanced than you that fighting them would be suicide.

Adding to this, the ERE had the very same administration for roughly a thousand years. Thus, they WERE a subdivision of the original Roman Empire's administration and a continuation of the aforementioned until the roach invasion. The ottomans brought in their own legal codes with persian/islamic influence, it was in no way Greek.

The Greek culture was simply an evolution of the empire's main culture, just as how it had happened with Germanics and other 'barbaric' peoples invading and mingling with Rome back in the late antiquity; they went from barbarians to the 'the guys we use as cannon fodder arrow pincushions in our legions', kinda-sorta accepted and encouraged throughout the backwater parts of the empire.

I was tinkering with the idea of a shadow govt / Illuminati TCG kind of thing, where major players would all obviously be (((the Chosen ones))) but with different kinds of perks and goals to them, where there'd be a real-world clay-grubbing and socio-political layer, while the meaty bits of the game would be around the influencing politics, obtain key infrastructure and/or people, boycott other overlords trying to do the same things you do and overall just doing conspiracy/NWO tier shit. All the while, you have an "exposure" kind of deal that would work similarly to infamy or world tension, where you'll be allowed to act more and more authoritarian in the real world at the cost of being found out or having severe inner repercussions in the shadow-world, to the point where you'd be considered an actual threat to humanity and countries, people and/or other Illuminati groups would band up to take you down a peg.

Is there actual benefit to annexing high revolt risk, non-core provinces? Always seemed like a bitch to police and supply, despite the added IC. Also hurry up and rape Aussies and Kiwis to get complete pacific supremacy.

In DH, AI gets unlimited naval range. Is that the case with HoI3 too, or does AI also have to island hop?

362add No.13790844


Taking IC is a longshot, but for now, how about try cutting to the coast northeasterly, then encircle & destroy forces to ultimately claim the ports? Likely to be a far more efficient hamstringing of the Soviet war effort than trying to push straight West, assuming the AI is engaging in lend-lease or that Black Ice is simulating it by event. Even if not, the coastal provinces have to be higher value than the Siberian waste between you & any Eastern industrial cities just going by the opportunity cost of pushing through the latter alone.

Per the log I've only destroyed the USS Lexington, but I know for a fact my naval wings have taken another 5+, but air on naval kills don't get recorded, unless its a KAG. I've also lost 3 carriers.


In Black Ice you have an event to curb revolts. I used that event It reduces your income by 50%, but considering the resources China has, it is well worth it. Even without using that event it would be worth it for a number of reasons. First MPs are the best inf. unit in the game. Why? They upgrade to anything, consume limited supplies, move as fast as semi-mot and have a huge suppression stat, which stacks nicely. So instead of making an entire new army from scratch, make them as MP divisions first, and later when your IC has grown due to expansion and building, upgrade them to whatever you need.

Naval range is unlimited port to port, ie I sent a midget submarine to the English channel since the game treats allied ports like your own, but once in port I can only deploy that unit on mission to ~300km or whatever it was. You can abuse this a bit (as in the above case), but when you are trying to intercept or block enemy fleets, range is real. Its also fair to note most Japanese ships CL and larger have a range of ~2000km from the start of the game in Black Ice, so Island hopping really isn't a thing.

>>13790844 (checked)

Working on it. The entire northern Army group is basically unresisted, and I have a ski division on the northeastern seaboard and another marine division invading from the south. I don't think the USSR even has a division in between the two currently though.

If you want good performance out of HOI3, without lag do the following:

That system reduced crashing from once every few hours to once every 12ish. It also doesn't 'lag' until its about to crash, at which point you should attempt to save the game. If you succeed, quit, delete logs/cache and restart.

I recommend moving back 1 month and then replaying. Something the fuckhead AI gets it in its head to declare war, and it can't be removed, and sometimes if you move back a few weeks to a month, the AI will remove its will to declare war. Either way all you garrisons on one front, all your infantry on the other ought to do, but even a weeks headstart with strategic redeployment will give you months later on.

Nah, this is a fun change of pace. I'll knock out Poland while limiting territory loss to the French. My plan is to let them advance a bit into Germany and hope they leave a section of the Maginot undermanned once I get around to counterattacking. Then I just punch through into France without disturbing the Low Countries.

To each his own, and I'm not entirely sure what mod your playing but in BICE the Maginot line is quite a difficult one if you aren't putting any pressure on the AI from the north. Even so, getting through the maginot line requires serious air power (100+ wings), or hundreds of thousands of casualties (100s of manpower) and a year long battle-pushing the defeat France and thus war with the USSR out a year.

The Low countries also have about as much metal, rares, and oil as France which you will need for the Soviets and because you take them earlier, upgrading them (especially oil) is a bit more realistic since you won't be feeling the pre-barbarossa IC pressure.

Make a save, and then load it up as the French and take a look at the fortifications. Don't reload this save as the Germans unless you want your entire army reorganized by the AI.

There is a intelligence mechanic which determines the level of information you get and its accuracy. You can assured most of those provinces have a fortification level higher than 1, and even 1 in BICE is actually a cunt without really good air support, or later tier units. If you want better intel you will need to dedicate a ton of leadership into spys and then send them to France for military intel- which is probably not a great strategy since you can nearly always assume the info you are seeing is minimally accurate.

Even better! You can get through them, but you need like 100 cags, airports to support and lots of men…I've had it work out a few times when the AI left a really weak unit and I had paratroopers to immediately drop, and air wings to support. More of luck than anything else.

Example, if you had lots of aircraft, paratroopers, and armor you could probably take Haguenau since colonials are dogshit with dogshit organization, but even that would be iffy.

This got me thinking, why isn't there more Armenian flavor in Vicky2? I know it's got the Armenian diaspora decision and Cilicia and Armenia as both releasable countries but, why not go beyond?

Mentlegen, I present you: A formable Greater Armenia. Unify Armenia and Cilicia and claim the old borders the Mets' Hayk, I mean if the kikes are pressing ~2000 year old claims, why can't Armenians do it as well?

The flag is based on the flag of the Principality of Khachen (modern Artsakh) and also features the Bagratunid flag, the one with the swirly thinger (Arevakhach) is the fascist flag in case you're wondering.

I'm still not sure how am I going to put it into the game, maybe when both Cilicia and Armenia are released and one of them is not a vassal/has nationalism & imperialism and is a vassal (just like good old Romania) can the Armenian unification take place. I guess I could also sync its decisions with those of Transcaucasia since they can unify the whole Caucasus, which is pretty cool.

I come bearing three GSGs (or something similar, anyway, no bully) from the distant and of Nippon. Observe!

>First entrant: Lost Technology

Generally similar to Dominions, but with lots of dialogue to give everything more flavour, as well as a mercenary mode should you wish to go independent. Goal of the game is world conquest with many of the factions having alternate routes (some only reachable by actually losing your empire and going independent for a while). Sadly, western version is a work in progress so only some of the factions are translated and there's a lot of content not yet localised.

>Second entrant: Sengoku Rance

If you don't know this game, then you are a tremendous faggot and need to lurk moar. Probably one of the best games Japan ever produced.

>Third Entrant: Kichikuou Rance

Everyone (except faggots) knows Sengoku Rance, but it's older brother often gets forgotten despite having perhaps even more content! It's not as flashy as Sengoku and requires you to know Rance lore to understand everything, but boy is it worth it! A bag full of routes to take, different ways to handle most areas, many different endings, as well as a number of sex slaves so great you'll have difficulties fucking them all.

Llaneros nowadays are not the cool horsemen of doom that went around being the american equivalent of huns, nowadays they mostly keep their music and clothings, but are not at all like the llaneros from the 18th and 19th century after they got curbstomped by machineguns after Pedro Perez Delgado (also known as maisanta, this is Hugo Chavez's great grandfather) rebelled against Juan Vicente Gomez, he is known as the last llanero.

There's also the Ibadi horde below me which I've already won a war against but all of their holdings are tribal and I don't have the money to build something so conquering them is useless.

Jewish heritage. It's inbreeding, it's a major issue in all of the ME.


I hope so, that is how I felt about my previous Afghan Hindu game. The thing is that there is always this one point when I declare war just at the wrong time and it fucks up my entire game. With the Shahi game I just mentioned I was made a vassal of my brother because I had to fight a war and two revolts at the same time and lost one of the revolts just after succeeding in the other one and the war. Then I tried to reclaim the throne but one of my old allies declared war on me because the AI always declares war on revolt leaders, I ragequit because I wasn't going to go anywhere from that point anyway.

I restarted because the horde leader with stats educating my imprisoned children fucked up the game too much to go on. I was actually able to conquer more in around the same amount of time even though this time I also had to deal with my realm splitting in three parts because my first character died before I could form a kingdom. If it continues being this easy, which it never does, then I might be able to reform the faith before the end of the century.

One interesting thing that has already happened in another part of the map is this Hindu khan south of me who has already converted his entire realm to hinduism, one of his vassals declared war on me but the devout warriors you get as a pagan for those situations are quite OP.

I couldn't help but to mess with the Caucasus. There's a few more provinces and Transcaucasia's population has been increased to rebalance the whole country. Seriously, it had ~150k pops, what the fuck? Now it's got almost a million since that place is densely packed and Armenians haven't been shoah'd yet.

All 3 countries got about 300k (more or less) people now.

Also rebalanced the goods produced, since both Georgia and Azerbaijan have been big on sericulture for centuries. There's coal (Imeretia, Georgia) and dyes (red madder/indigo in Azerbaijan, cultivated in Sheki) in the area now .

And of course new decisions to unite Daghestan as one of the Daghestani principalities and a little bit of fun for Transcaucasia: You can now sunder the Russian-imposed union and play as either Georgia, Armenia, Abkhazia or Azerbaijan; Transcaucasia breaks, you get a diplomatic penalty with Russia, but you're free from their yoke, until they decide to zerg rush the shit outta you.

As I mentioned before, you can form Greater Armenia but also, you can restore the golden age Georgia which was also pretty fucking big.

Worse, actually.

China is represented as a single out-of-map ruler pretending there is a coherent Chinese Empire, with its only on-map territory being part of Tibet. Then again, Tibet is de jure Chinese clay in the current year, after all.

Nevermind the fact that in 821/822 CE Tibet and China signed a peace treaty due to the latter's rapidly declining influence over the former. Tibet continued as a Central Asian empire until the mid-9th century, when a civil war over succession led to the collapse of imperial Tibet, when political control over Tibet became divided between regional warlords and tribes with no dominant centralized authority until the 13th century in which Tibet retained nominal power over religious and regional political affairs, while the Mongol Yuan dynasty managed a structural and administrative rule over the region, reinforced by the rare military intervention.

There is no "the" cradle; Egypt, China, Mesopotamia, India and numerous other places are all dubbed "cradles of civilization" in various contexts.

But the fact is that the one DLC they named "cradle of civilization" is not about Egypt, or India, or Mesopotamia – it's very specifically about about the Ottoman Empire (like everything, with Paradox), which came into being in the 14th fucking century and had no influence or connection, what so ever, to the "birth" of civilizations. It's typical Paradox Turko-centrism, so perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised.

At the start of Operation Barbarossa, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania remain un-annexed by the Soviets; they, along with Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden remain neutral. Finland joined the Axis about a month prior, and Romania the month before that.

In 3-4 months, the French provinces of Cherbourg and Calais will have fully upgraded radar stations for the air battle raging around the English Channel. The British are slowly being whittled down in the air, with half-strength and lower airwings a common sight among enemy formations. 24 medium transport wings will be finished at the end of July to alleviate potential supply problems on the Eastern Front and take part in a future paratrooper drop to seize ports in the UK. Frederick the Great is slated for completion in early October, and will take the fight to the Royal Navy hopefully unmolested by enemy naval bombers.

My Chief of Staff, Alfred Jodl gives +15 starting experience, so my new troops are starting with a 60% experience bonus and somehow better trained than veterans of the wars with France and Poland. If also found out that spamming steel/rare/coal facilities in the province where you have synthetic industry is a good idea.

The history of human migration is fucking fascinating, but we’ll never actually learn anything about it because it’s politically incorrect to recognize the five species of humanity or so much as state that whites lived all across the middle east and north Africa 2000 years ago. Depressing.

All European countries are infested with t*rks, they are like chinks in canada or mexicans in the us: never stop breeding and refuse to learn the language of the country they live in. Meanwhile they won't shut the fuck up about how glorious their fatherland is not realising that their ancestors went to the west because their country of origin was a shithole. Everytime I talk to a turk they start talking about turkey at least every 10 minutes, they are as obsessed with that country as niggers are obsessed with rap music.

The eastern European steppes are the cradle of civilization since that's where the ancient Aryans developed the wheel and began their reconquest of Europe from the semite invaders.

Semites are incapable of civilization. They might have made cities first, but they were never civilized, and even to this day still haven't managed civilization. Japanese are the only nonwhites who have managed civilization.

The ancient inhabitants of Mesopotamia weren't semites. At that time semites were just desert herders who raided them. Apparently they were in fact Armenoid

An armenian is just a jew that followed a rolling shekel into a church, so that's still semitic.

Gave vanilla EU4 a chance with the new patch and all. I attempted harder starts before deciding to just have fun with comfyblob Muscovy. I grabbed the mission to Conquer Novgorod and took as many provinces as possible, including the titular Novgorod and that White Sea port with center of trade (it was on suggested demands I probably should've rather secured Neva.) Vanilla coring interface wasn't too bad but when I went window shopping the horde lands I realized that if I want them to eventually have proper Russ- Muscovite culture I would have to manually convert them using mana. Dynamic culture conversion through events is possibly one of the best parts of M&T.

From the patch itself, they seem to have tweaked some diplomatic values. Already having strong allies now gives AI malus to accepting your alliance request which doesn't necessarily make sense from the AIs perspective (your ally having allies of their own can be good thing so you don't end up in situation where you're the only one defending it, but it can help avoiding political deadlocks.) For what I saw in couple of hours, "Cruel" personality now gives negative -20 modifier to answer call to arms. Baluchistan didn't feel like accepting white peace despite their army being stackwiped and half of their country occupied, all to keep OPM from accepting full annexation.

China stuff is a bit hilarious (-ly OP). Want to disinherit sons? Snip snip and send them to China, get an artifact back. Same for your useless daughters, send the sluts to the emperor. You can do this if you are in diplomatic range of china, which on default settings means Byzantines can reach.

Feels more like these mechanics were designed for appeasing the Aztecs given how many children I'm feeding them.

m8 even if my entire fleet was ironclads, I'd still only have 1044 colonial points in total.

There's just no way unless I take a bunch of regions to get my naval power up and then build even more ironclads.


Yeah I prestige spammed, but I think that was a bad idea so I'll start the game over. The only real reason I go for great power status is to build the canals and do the few Egypt decisions. If I simply take the regions from Egypt and Colombia then I can stay a secondary power and prevent the great powers from getting to Africa so soon. I can also lock up much of Africa doing that.

Is there a way to prevent the releasing of certain countries in Victoria 2?

I hate when Poortugal releases India as a single province when I'm trying to form India.

>Continue Muscovy game

>Lose 1 stability from event

>Press button to recover it with paper mana

So essentially because my ruler goofed in court, the technological progress of entire Muscovite Principality has been set back year or so. Also this scenario. You have +1 stability and get event for it to increase? Why not boost it once with mana before accepting to get +3 cheap?

I personally feel like stability should just have boring counter from 0 to 100 like legitimacy have. This would allow more dynamic and incremental changes.

Also in vanilla, local autonomy is black hole that simply deletes percentage of stuff that province produces.
