We don't have an official steamgroup. If anyone posts in the thread about any "official" or not steamgroup, promising MP or not, be sure it's a shitposter group known for organizing raids and shitposting in the thread. They are known for false-flagging.
Report and ignore it

Hey, since you're working on Africa right now, you should implement the Hobyo sultanate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sultanate_of_Hobyo
They were the first ones to sign a protectorate treaty with the Italians in Somalia, so it's probably a significant enough reason to put them in

No, I'm only talking about colonial migration. Assimilation doesn't really happen in Vicky because of cultural cores.
Having those 10% accepted culture pops that usually takes to muster 1% bureaucrats is piss easy after you kill most of the natives.
Pic related was without genocide, I had up to 20% North German in some provinces. And I know, I know, grossgermania, but after genocide you should be seeing similar results even as something as small as Belgium.

Many Houses Divided - v 0.0.1.1
Download link - https://www.dropbox.com/s/jso7qa1c4ystej7/MHD.rar?dl=0

Contents - Independent US states (and D.C. which is a releasable puppet which starts out as a part of Maryland).
It is recommended that you play as nation in the Americas because all the extra tags cause lots of unnecessary strain.

NOTE - Many states have around 10,000 people, meaning that you won't be able to make soldiers for a long time. It is recommended that you play as a nation in the southeast or northeast because they have the population to support a military.

TO DO LIST
-Make political variants for each flag (Except for Virginia, fascist Vermont, republic flags, and a hand full of communist flags)
-Make Canadian states
-Make Mexican states
-create CSA state league to prevent slavery from being abolished
-set up literacy for each state
-Create a war for the independence of West Virginia
- When the war kicks off, West Virginia gets a decision to ask Kentucky to the war, which triggers an event for Kentucky to decides whether or not they join
-Greater "X" decision for some states - Massachusetts (core on Maine), Virginia (Kentucky and maybe some midwest states, Florida (core on Cuba), New England (NY, NJ, PN), Michigan (Wisconsin) Texas, etc.
-Event for Maryland that releases D.C. or keeps it at the expense of militancy in the province
-Insure that Greater Texas/Texan Empire can't form the Confederacy (possibly, still on the table)
-Insure that Greater Virginia (Midwest owning)/Virginian Empire can't form Confederacy
-Better color scheme
-Better political pops or something like that
-Make British states
-New cultures for certain regions
- Wisconsin = Cheesehead
- New England = Yankee
- CSA = Dixie
- Nevada & Utah = Mormon
- etc.
-Kansas starts out with slavery, but they also start in the middle of a revolt, representing Bleeding Kansas. Just earlier.
Always up for more suggestions

Damn Straight.

Granadas looking a bit healthier now. Castille has lost a massive amount of its trade power in the Andalusian node, due to its ships getting wrecked and the Granadaian provinces, which will cripple them for a good long while. their manpower got completely decimated too, which will cripple their development.

France took a bad deal on it though, the combined might of Aragon and Castile was a bit much for them and they got a bit ruined (the AI walked a 57 Stack into a 40 Stack in the Mountains across a river....), but what do I care? If the stupid heathens want to help me fight other heathens, so be it. Theres always other people to ally.

Tlemcen is getting annexed now, only 5 years on that.

I was thinking more of a partial incorporation of the mod which add SOME tags, but not all. The East Coast in particular could use more than 2-3 tags (depending on whether or not the FSA pops up on the East Coast). Like the West Coast, you could have one state encompass several states, like Virginia containing Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Kentucky.

A few years after you get the Congo, this event will pop up. The last option will leave the Congo as a uncolonized state. I will also make it so it's not normally releasable to avoid releasing it and inheriting it through normal events.
The second option does the effects shown in the pic and the first option, the historical path, still has no defined effects.

Most likely it will make the congo the same primary culture as the overlord (or add it as an accepted culture), move a few pops to Boma and trigger the events that should benefit the owner somehow.
Then the exploitation can spiral out of control or it can end up being mostly controlled and covert, with an eventual annexation for less infamy and less consequences than the outright annexation.

Oman is pretty good. Become the Caliph, spread Shia, and you're in a good position to take the cream off the top of a lot of the trade flowing through your area to Europe.

Plenty of expansion oppurtunities, you can either go via Africa, , and put your Trading city down on the Cape of good hope somewhere, and dominate the node so that its all yours. Your other lands should be steering it down that way, and if you've expanded sensibly you should have a massive ability to deprive Europe of trade.

Alternatively you could keep your Trade Post somewhere in the Middle East, and route all Trade through it. Your expansions should be eastwards towards India, Philippines, Vietnam area, grab all the Provinces with Centers of trade and just good trade figures there (way before the Euro's have a chance to get there) and really pump the figures of the Trade running into the middle east. Potentially this is more profitable as you will be working with everyone else to pull trade through the middle east, and if you own the lands, you get to take the lions share off the top.

Omans a good fun nation, would recommend it to anyone.

You didn't promise to do colonial exploitation (which is what colonies are in the game), you promised to help them civilize through a philanthropic association.

Hey HPM, I was just wondering, does it take longer for pops to migrate across the sea? I was playing uncivilized and I cheated to take the US and none of my African pops migrated for a long damn time, do you know why that is? How do I make them migrate overseas?

And something concerning the CSA, or my african game or any Slavery allowed place to enslave the state or province I take over?

No, the game uses no notion of distance.

>How do I make them migrate overseas?
I imagine we are talking about a regular state, not a colonial one. Basically unemployment, militancy and needs are the main factors. Cores help too IIRC.

There's a difference between the artstyle. They are political cartoons from different sources, so different styles. In all of those. It's just that you don't like that one. It's just a matter of personal preference.

The Vanity Fair being the most distant one and the one in the first column third row being the best example of dissonant cartoon.

If you want I can make a poll but judging that just you have strong feelings against one of the political cartoons, I don't really think it's necessary.

You are using the wrong HPM. You are using the version for 3.03. That or the mapmod you are using isn't updated.

Don't colonise too much in one colonial region, it makes them too strong and you get better bonuses from having muiltiple colonial nations.

Colonise african + asian provinces/conquer suh sahara + india from the technologically inferior countries

Then you can build a land limit +1 building in each province, liberty desire is calculated from how big your army is compared to the colonial nations.

I'll have Europe done by tomorrow

Not much changes in Northern Europe, Denmark-Norway still exists and in the east the Ottomen are chipped away at slightly, but nothing too big,

Poland is still a grey area for me, the 3rd partition borders would have stayed the same, but I'm sure some rebellion would have rose up, so I might make a tiny polish state if anyone wants to form the commonwealth.

The Italian peninsula is fractured and Italy no longer has any nationalist revolts. Genoa and Venice both still exist.

Ello lads. Just a quick check-in to tell you that Legacy of Slovenia is on-track for an alpha release by the end of this week. What to expect:
>Dozens of new and changed countries set up with proper units, cores, etc.
>HPM mechanics and generic events/decisions integrated
>A few (only like 3 or 4 ar this point) custom events/decisions of my own. Expect more in future releases
>Memes? We'll see.

They speak an Afroasiatic language, yes, but language does not define where one is from and what one is. The Turks are most closely related to Greeks because of their Anatolia/Hittite/Pontic blood. Are there Turks with purer Central Asian blood? Of course, but that does not mean that they are so easily defined as a people. It's the same with Levantines.

Egyptians spoke an Afroasiatic language as well before they spoke Arabic.

Culturally they may take a lot from the Bedouin who were the main spreads of Islam, but they're still not the same thing.

It helps with defining origins of people pretty well. So Arabs in Iraq are distant cousins of Egypt.
Also Persia raped the whole region so this argument is pointless

>>127416621
Germany is a good starter, you get an easy Poland invasion, intro to air combat, etc. You'll probably lose eventually, especially if you attack the USSR, but you'll learn a lot and be well prepared for your second game. USA can also be fun but probably not as a first game because you'll be smashing your head on a desk from naval supply throughput if you haven't gotten a primer on it from somewhere else.

HOI3 doesn't really have any good mods, BICE is meme-tier, HPP adds complexity without really improving anything, the germania one is really only good for playing germania. There's an "unofficial patch mod" which mainly adjusts strategic effect conditions and fiddles with the spanish civil war because the author is a spainfag, but it also fixes some bugs and is probably a straight upgrade from vanilla (no actual bad changes).

When you fight them during the Orient Crisis, when you get the upper hand, you get an event to propose a peace compromise. Refuse as this will only give back the Levant and make Egypt and Sudan a puppet. Instead, continue the war to pursue your wargoal and you'll get an event, some time after the peace, to fully annex it for some infamy.

Hey, /gsg/uys, i have been working on this alt history mod for over 3 months now without sleep.
Its centred around the idea that all goose died out.
The celts conquered rome, the baltic nations had to move even more south, burgenland became free after the huns left, the bavarians united with the teutons and conquered bohemia while the old prussians still conquered all original land.
The poglizzan navy and trade was more stronger becouse without goose, ducks were the #1 food resource and they managed to buy the slavic army to conquer celtic venedig.
The Slavs settled down in the Alps, where they live in gold houses.
The Hungarian crown split into two parts, the polish and hungarian part, while szekelyland (ie, the land of the jews) still is under controll of the roman-magyar empire.
Šešelj Nemaja formed the Byzantine empire while theodore assimilated all tatars.

Never lead the armies with anyone other than yourself

Also be sure to start with a tribe that has iron / can get access to iron otherwise you're fucked

>>127435090
I was always playing the mod that filled the empty provinces with tribes so I could easily blob into iron tribes

I'm trapped between two expanding powers in India, and Russia is taking the idea of "protecting Christians in the Holy Land" to the extreme.

HPM should do this if he doesn't like bloat: Create two different versions. One for people who prefer the content minimal so that the game runs smooth, and one for people that would prefer to give up performance for extra cultures/Provinces/countries
>>
In HPM does the USA get an event to annex the countries like Maritime Union if it has them in its sphere?

Also in HPM the UK gets New Caledonia and Yukon territory as states, not as colonies.

I played EUIV for a bit this weekend, my main /gsg/ related games being HoI3 and Victoria 2, I've also played a little CK2 and DH. Everything is much too abstract for it to be even remotely considered good, not only this but the only thing to do in the game is war, and the combat mechanics are atrocious.

Compare EUIV's combat to Victoria 2 and HoI3's combat: what makes an army strong in these games is technology, experience (or training), and leadership meaning everybody starts at the same level and how powerful a country is militarily is reliant on physical hard factors. In Victoria 2 and HoI3, all infantry brigades from every nation have the same stats and abilities which can only be changed via discovering new technologies or granting them new experience by using them commonly in combat. In EUIV, different countries have different morale stats, discipline stats, combat efficiency stats (for example, Prussia getting +20% infantry combat ability just for being Prussian) and not because of newfound combat doctrines or communication technologies but because of arbitrary and abstract existences which don't have any true meaning. What this means is you end up with a 'strategy game' that doesn't actually have any strategy involved, it's completely reliant on arbitrary numbers and statistics to the point where 90% of wars are resolved before the first shot even fires.

I could go further into mana but I think that's something which has been discussed over a billion times at this stage and we get why it's bullshit by now, my point can be pretty much summed up like this: when I play EUIV I don't feel like I'm playing a grand strategy game I feel like I'm playing a turnbased RPG with no level scaling. There's no way to outmaneuver or combat an opponent with a superior level than your own without exploiting gameyness because their number is higher than yours.

He loves bloat, hence those redundant kurdish vassals for the Ottomen and Persia. Not to mention all those extra cultures. Apart from that, it would be a lot of work probably

If you are aggressive you can snatch New Caledonia and Yukon if you demand it from them. You can push further up on the Oregon event chain, and if you manage to colonize Yukon after them, you get the rest for free.

The southern Italians. Since North Italians are going to get all the way down to Dalmatia.

>>127437892
>>127437918
I don't fucking know, but I like extra cultures and countries. I just more meant where he doesn't want to push beyond, which has happen some time when he thinks it would hit performance a little too much.

>>127437940
I snatched Columbia from them but as I have said they automatically get a province in both New Caledonia and Yukon as a state before the Oregon event chain starts.

Neat, keep us updated on us. Draw out the planned borders. How will you cut up Africa between you for example?

It seems only right to give Southern Italians eastern Africa, but larger portions. While Sardinia only gets its european states and western africa. Which would possibly include Nigeria.

as opposed to Victoria, where you can "outplay" the AI by putting your stack in the mountains and watching AI march its 1000k army into it to get slaughtered

I understand that you are fishing for easy (You)s by comforming with general /gsg/ opinions, but at least tackle some real issues.
