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

How fares your empire, /gsg/?

This day in history, January 13th:
1607 – The Bank of Genoa fails after announcement of national bankruptcy in Spain.
1793 – Nicolas Jean Hugon de Bassville, representative of Revolutionary France, lynched by a mob in Rome
1842 – Dr. William Brydon, an assistant surgeon in the British EIC Army during the First Anglo-Afghan War, becomes famous for being the sole survivor of an army of 4,500 men and 12,000 camp followers when he reaches the safety of a garrison in Jalalabad, Afghanistan.
1895 – First Italo-Ethiopian War: the war's opening battle, the Battle of Coatit, occurs; it is an Italian victory.

What DLC is Johan planning to pull out of his arse now?

what happened to them
>>
>>128467169
They were abolished because they had like a banking organization and stuff and they became a liability because proper christians aren't supposed to be nickle and diming usurers. There was some framing going on because certain powers thought them a threat and wanted them gone, I believe.

At least that's how I remember it. I may be off.

Current status:

managed to get an ally, Charsianon. We also have our brother as an ally, although he has a -100 opinion of us.

built a toll booth in Constantinople's trade post to get some mad dosh.

major threats for now seem to be only some of the larger duchies. maybe our lack of prestige and the nomads / tribals too.

also, a little backround:
I was playing the game on observe, in ck2 +. I went to take a shower, and the byzantine empire was fucking gone. eventually, the former emperor remade the title, having only Constantinople, it was at this point I started playing.

Eh. I'm an achievement whore so I've got experience with it a tad. If you want an easy start. I recommend Bengal or Gujarat. If you want to play Hindu with muh deities and deity events, Vijayanagar, Delhi. If you don't want poo in loo, but buddhist kek, which is almost the same, you should probably go to Indochina.

>>128470598
As EU4modder, here's what happens if an event has no options: you fucked up the coding. Something happened and the game didn't read the "option" part. Either it's not there, or you most likely just fucked up with brackets.

No, besides a decision to move the capital to Constantinople if you take it. HPM nerfed Greece's literacy and starting pop and you don't get the Age of Liberalism events, so you can't take Voule ton Ellinon because it has a minimum prestige requirement you used to get from that event.

I dunno about CK2, but last time I tried strait modding in EU4 (which, admittedly, was a while bacK), they were defined as following

First two entries obviously to determine which provinces to connect, and the third was to determine which sea you have to occupy to block the strait. I've made global straits back then, so I assume that you could make your "underground tunnels" too.

Population in the Congo was raised to the estimated ~20 million. The Kingwana, Swahili speaking Bantu of the east are the pops that have the sunni that make up almost 10% of the population. Before it was 100% animist.

HPM, I'm Yugoslav anon, I didn't catch your final response last night but I saw it today.

There wasn't a problem with implementing the suggestions I made before, because I didn't advocate making core-removal decisions between Yugoslavia and all affected GPs, just with Italy, which itself had shaky claims to the lands it shares cores on with Yugoslavia.

My specific suggestions were to remove Istria and the one Italian core in Croatia as a necessity for forming Yugoslavia. This is both because those regions are multiethnic and so not necessarily considered initially as a core part of Yugoslavia, and so the player doesn't need to attack Italy to gain it if Italy forms and takes it before you can (which regularly occurs). I also suggested that, if Yugoslavia formed with Albanian territory in its sphere, Yugoslavia simply absorb Albania (although not gain Albanian as an accepted culture) in initial formation.

I then suggested a decision which Yugoslavia's sphere master or Yugoslavia itself could take which would start negotiations with Italy over cores. The options were a lump-sum payment from Italy to Yugoslavia/Yugoslavia's puppet master which resulted in Italy retaining full cores on Istria and the dalmatian coast; a land exchange whereby Italy keeps north Istria while Yugoslavia gains southern Istria and the Dalmatian coast (in this option Yugoslavia/its puppet master also pays a moderate sum to Italy); and a third option where Yugoslavia/its puppet master pays a large sum to Italy in return for Italy revoking its cores on the Dalmatian coast and all of Istria. Any of these options could be rejected by Italy, and the decision could only be taken before Mass Politics, as I reasoned after Mass Politics it would have been considered impossible to construct a treaty such as this.

I'll reiterate that, at the time, you agreed that these were good suggestions and that you would implement them at a future date.

That's a good question. I've always assumed that when RGOs can't afford to pay the defined minimum wage value (pretty sure there's always a true minimum wage even if the reforms aren't taken) they fire people until they can, but it's also possible that the world RGOs just collaborate to produce not more than some % in excess of world demand, and your RGOs hire/fire accordingly.

It's still a complicated matter to settle. Who gives up their cores on what. Maybe can work with the principle of effective occupation, but I oughta add something for re adding cores in case of dismantlement.

I'm not sure what, if the game needs a 8 bit bmp, RGB or whatever color scheme or what, I'm just sure that photoshop keeps it and GIMP fucks it. I'd suggest trying to do the modifications in photoshop, but that file that is fucked is fucked and it isn't coming back.

I meant the overview of craftsmen pops in the population screen, but it looks like they're doing decent enough. Unfortunately it looks like clerks are struggling to meet their needs, because they consume much more goods than craftsmen but receive the same wages they do. I don't think there's any other way of fixing this other than reducing the needs of clerks, but this doesn't seem like a good option because the middle class should be large consumers of consumer goods in the late game.

Playing as a nomad in CK2+ I'm getting assraped by the clans wanting more land because everywhere I take over has a tribe living there and when i give the land to one of the clans it doesn't lower the clan land demand.

>Because of cultural differences, Albania will not be absorbed in Yugoslavia when forming.

It's foolish that Yugoslavia's puppet master has a decision to give Yugoslavia cores on Albania as soon as Yugoslavia is formed, then. Why bother at all? Unless the player forms Yugoslavia, it serves no purpose; even if you're the Ottomans, you can give Yugoslavia cores on your territory, but there's no further decision to shift the land to them. Either the decision to extend cores to Albania should be restricted to a technology level and yourself and Yugoslavia being at war with the controller of Albania, or the same technology restriction should exist, but when eventually taken the decision which extends Yugoslav cores to Albania should also annex those Albanian lands to Yugoslavia immediately.

Anyway, if it's not done for release that's fine. But I also suggest a minor decision that can be taken with Greece to resolve the core conflict with them over Albania. I know it might seem trifling, but it's seriously annoying that a single province completely precludes an alliance with Greece.

If the RGO was producing above demand then some workers were being paid for no benefit; firing those workers would increase the % profitability of the RGO.
If the RGO is producing to meet demand or under demand (and still unprofitable) then reducing employment will both slow the RGO's capital drain, and also increase the price of the goods produced which will increase profitability.

>Can't you simply use the free allied core CB and give them the provinces through war?

Yes, but you have to have the nation which controls Albania sphered to take the decision to expand Yugoslav cores to Albania in the first place. You can see where the decision has limited effectiveness; you'd need to break your own sphere and go to war with them just to give Yugoslavia a bit more land, whereas whoever controls Albania is likely more useful to you as a sphereling.

While you can make the argument that that's a gameplay effect and working as intended, that you have to decide to break the sphere or to keep it and forego giving your vassal Albania, it just seems unintuitive to me. Other nations that you sphere simply stop existing when you take integrationist decisions, and I don't understand why the same wouldn't occur in the particular case of Albania.

Also, while you're right that you can use Free People on Albania in most situations, it doesn't work if your nation directly controls Albania. You can give them cores on Albania, but won't be able to actually cede the land to them. In fact, it prevents you from allying them for the rest of the game because of the core conflict, and you can only call them into wars manually (they won't auto-join like ally-vassals do).

Well then, the decision can work as a ultimatum. You basically are demanding land from your sphere and they wouldn't be happy about it.

>Other nations that you sphere simply stop existing when you take integrationist decisions
Mostly depend on the decision. Some send ultimatums, some don't. In the case of a multicultural union like Albania, I can see why it shouldn't work like that. Having the Ottomans giving up a sunni country to an orthodox country isn't exactly expected.

It basically checks some variables when showing you text. Putting $COUNTRY$ in the localization for an event will show the name of the current country. Putting $FROM_COUNTRY$ will show the name of the country that fired the event (only used when a country fires an event to another country). $COUNTRY_ADJ$ uses the current country adjective (British for the UK, Brazilian for Brazil, German for Germany) and $FROMCOUNTRY_ADJ$ you can guess what does. $MONARCHTITLE$ uses the current name of the head of government - King, Supreme Leader, Chairman, etc.

Unless you are referring to the set_variable and related effects, in that case, what do you want to know about it?

Think of it as a flag with a number attached to it.

You need to set a variable first though. Then you can have events add or subtract a number from it and you can check a variable to trigger something.

It's useful in votes or when you want an event to happen a specific number of times.

Production implies demand anyways, I guess. Here's the production of oil in 1914 when I added fuel as a small amount of everyday needs for everyone.

Before Japanese industrialization? Probably starting cash. After? They collect crazy amounts of money from the factories, I think once factories hit their internal account limit (5k victoriabux for a lvl 1 factory) they just start giving the excess to the capitalists.

>they just start giving the excess to the capitalists
I thought someone tested this and thought the money just disappeared

Here's demand
>>128502969
But where does all that money come from? It's obviously not printed out, and even gold mines can't match the insane amount of money capitalists get.
Also, considering Paradox's ineptitude, I'd think the money would just vanish into thin air instead of going to capitalists. That's what happens under planned economies - capitalists aren't needed anymore, but the money that would've gone to capitalists just vanishes. Which is a lot of money considering they take the majority of profits.

When is "actual bought" ever a different value from the supply or demand, whichever is lower?

>>128503423
The demand is the combined demand of all pops in the world for the good. Actual bought is how many people were actually able to afford to buy the goods. At least that's how I think it works.
>>
>>128503423
Actual bought differs from demand because pops can't always afford to buy goods they demand. I think there are instances where technical "demands" don't count in the "demand" value, otherwise I'd expect the demand for farmer luxury goods like coffee and shit to be 2-4 times higher than "actual bought" due to Chinese farmers every being able to purchase their luxury goods.

HPM, what do you think about making a decision that is similar to the genocide minorities where instead you deport them to the colonies? Historical example (although it was never followed through with) is German deportation of Jews to Madagascar.

Not really possible - deportation is not dynamic enough.
Not to mention that, as with deportation to Liberia, it's complicated to just put everyone in ships, it's not really guaranteed they would go, go down without a fight ot simply not hide.
