The Peninsula has been a total mess for the last 100 years.
Have a game of EU3: DW as Holland, rich as hell from trading but suffering from high inflation. Had all the territory to form the Netherlands except Utretch, who was my vassal, and I wanted to annex them, but I had to leave the HRE and lose them as my vassal before I could get a mission which would core that territory because Bavaria, the Holy Roman Emperor, was about to make everybody their vassal.
And now my entire EU3 fucked itself and I have to reinstall the bugger.
Russia is somewhat behind in tech but now they're slowly catching up since they were able to westernize. Military wise, Russia is still in the Eastern tech group I think.
So how similar is Warlock - Master of the Arcane to the Fall from Heaven II mod for Civ IV?
Because that's what my wildest dreams are if you told me they're making a fantasy thing that's a lot like Civ V.
Yeah, I gave it a go myself and it seems pretty solid. I'm a little concerned over the lack of races, though. IIRC there's three races, which is a little lacking imo.
It's unfortunate, I'd only hope they would increase the variety of races through DLC or something. Having anything at all like the Illians or Infernal would be an instant purchase for me.
I suppose what'll make or break Warlock is how good its modding support is. I've yet to play a Paradox game that had bad modding support so I'm pretty hopeful in this regard. I played the Demo and it's a fun game on its own, but if there's a huge amount of custom user made content like races then it'll go from being a good game to a great game.
I didn't realize you could play this competitively... since you know, starting positions aren't exactly "balanced".
I recall someone mentioning that a few of you guys were doing a MP game, I'd be willing to join once my COMS cd-key thing gets resolved
Kaiserreich mod is fucking awesome, here is a picture of my glorious German Empire:
-Allied with Ukraine, Mittelafrika, Qing Empire, Netherlands (invaded them, but proved very helpful), Denmark, Lithuania and Russia every now and again.
-Stalemate on the Western Front for like 5-6 years, got mad and spammed Milita troops en masse and pushed them out
-I own Europe, allowed Ukraine to expand into Persia, Middle East and Asia a bit (I control their army)
-Slowly wiping out Asian controls that aren't my allies
-Can't be fucked invading England
-South America is threatening my sovereignty (Nope, I want South America to myself)
-Don't give a shit about Ocenaia
I have around 10 years left, plenty of time to rule the world
The most micromanaging I had to do was:
-Invading Kingdom of Serbia, Romania, Croatia and Bulgaria at the same time
-Invading Egypt, Turkey, Persia, Armenia and Azerbaijan , Saudi Arabia at the same time
-Invading Siam, Bhutan, and god knows how many Asian Countries
Anyone got some good mods that add upon EU3's base game and works with EU3's latest expansion?
Quite an interesting multiplayer game a friend and I are having (I'm germany). Some pretty strange countries have grown large.
I'm playing as Germany and hoping to win. I actually played as the United States once in one, but the war dragged on well into WWII and even further. It never fucking ended.
I think in that game they westernized, became Catholic and colonized parts of the New World.
Also been playing Warlock, it is just as addicting as Civ4. My goal is to conquer the world and realms with undead and wipe out all of the living :-)
What's your guys experience with inbreeding in CK2? I spent a shitload of time grooming my daughter to the point she had 16 stewardship, then realized that she can't be appointed as a steward. So I want to marry her into the dynasty with the hopes that her children might carry on some of those traits I so diligently acquired. My character's half-brother is currently unmarried, but I don't know if a half-uncle is too closely related to marry. It seems like it would be no worse than marrying a cousin, which I've read is fairly acceptable as far as inbreeding goes, but I'm still not sure.
Nevermind, my brother died. I guess I gotta marry her off to some courtier or maybe find a way to get a matrilineal marriage.
Don't some players practice natural selection?
Like, they have as many kids as possible, then kill off the useless ones and only breed those with naturally high traits with others with only naturally high traits from abroad?
I believe in one game they ended up creating superhumans or something.
In one of my campaigns I had 6 kings in a row with the genius and strong attributes. I always choose elective succession so I can pick the best kid of the litter.
Also how the fuck is my guy an elector in the Byzantine Empire? I'm a damn Hungarian.
So I just discovered the "Abyss" scenario for Darkest Hour II Lite. Anybody have any info on this? It seems interesting, but it's clearly unfinished.
Are there any mods for it?
I've also been looking for modding tutorials, but I haven't found anything. I have no idea how they expect you to mod this game.
