How fares your empire, /gsg/?
This day in history, January 15th:
69 – Otho seizes power in Rome, proclaiming himself Emperor of Rome, but rules for only three months before committing suicide.
1541 – King Francis I of France gives Jean-François Roberval a commission to settle the province of New France (Canada) and provide for the spread of the "Holy Catholic faith".
1815 – War of 1812: American frigate USS President, commanded by Commodore Stephen Decatur, is captured by a squadron of four British frigates.

works exactly the same way with the SGF, which is why it's so much harder to form the NGF than the SGF, because the NGF route means you need to take alscae-lorraine from france

We teached them how to read, gave them a stable goverment with all the benfits of Empire, but they are just like:
Fine, give it to them, maybe they will come to identify sooner or later with the Empire as well. We got to try. (also take Constantinople)

No seriously, how did vikings become this.
Jin was consumed by ming during this war
Why the fuck is Oirat still at war with me. Did he make me a cobelligerent or something?
One of his chief complaints was the pope literally selling salvation, so yeah, decadence within the papacy was the big thing.
Luther was renowned within his order, which was already one of the most fanatic, as being a bit too fanatical.
Please excuse me, I couldn't help but notice that your definition of "god" wildly differs from my own.
I am also of the belief that the vatican is corrupt and therefore should not receive our support. I will now engage in petty squabbles so my vision of an abstract concept becomes the most relevant.
t. Martin Luther
fucking ming. I even baited their 25 stack to my 19 stack on mountains and still lost. They have like no unrest in that entire fucking chunk of land they took too.
Ming warned me so I cant eat more of oirat who is internally collapsing because of how badly I fucked him, and I cant eat yeren because ming as well. Ming has literally shit on my parade completely.
>a year after the first potential release date we are still changing core mechanics
Respectfully Disagree x1
It got fixed for fucks sake people stop saying it's broken. It got fixed more then a week ago, I have been playing and haven't had any problems after the fix. It's in the goddamn archive.
Im not sure.
Other anons might explain better but basically all great powers ally up and jack each other off.
Also 80% of time your ally will simply say Fuck off if you ask them for anything. And you get 0% chance to ally with another GP since theyre over GP ally limit.
>We teached them how to read
But obviously not how to write.
Rate my plan for Africa.
Also, what lands should I take from the turks?
Playing as a minor in the HRE is no longer fun.
Blobstria always blobs up to you.
The elimination of other states also ensures Austria remains emperor Because if you want to expand at all the electors will all hate you again due to the reduction of targets.
Paradox fix Blobstria AI, or add something that makes the entire HRE coalition him if he eats electors, something to fix this shit.
Or make it SUPER painful for the Emperor to annex Imperial territory. Shit, just make blobbing in the HRE painful, period. Right now there's no incentive other than coalitions to not blob.
Johan doesn't give a fuck about AI.
His dream is seeing his games become the new competitive standard, where all tags are taken by players.
Multiplayer balance not realism ok praise Johan
I think I prefer EU4 brown for orthodox, but the beige catholic is superior.
how much do i have to fucking occupy to get russia and italy to capitulate fuck me
all of mainland italy and all of russia that matters
and now fucking uncivilized qing joined in on their side so they send their stacks of weak ass infantry that just get slaughtered by gas attacks
i really wanna see the number on how many died during this retarded fucking war
warscore is at 99% too
You're going to conquer all of Poland now that you have Polish as accepted, right?
Taking all of South Germany would also be a good idea. Remember, it's not blobbing as longs as the POPs there are accepted.
I dont have anything besides German and Hungarian as accepted right now. it took me until 1900 to become a republic and do the federation event. Now I have to wait for all the extra stuff to pop up. I literally just got the one about Hungary.
>not possessing all of the balkans including Constantinople
Germany only had colonies because Otto caved to pressure from the powerful right-wing faction that wanted colonies because >prestige. It was literally jumping on the bandwagon.
And I can't wait for the war leader to white peace France and not give me shit.

but I couldnt annex the whole thing with it, it only let me pick upper silesia
its not in HPM, its split into silesia and upper silesia
You're not wrong, but we had fun with vanilla (even before HoD and AHD) and that was broken as fuck. I don't see why we couldn't have fun with mods other than HPM now.
I don't think Country Colors changes the map at all.
Either USA or UK.
>we had fun with vanilla
Sure but to go from HPM to another mod would be a step backwards. We didn't know what we were missing out on in the vanilla days, that's why we managed to enjoy them.
G-d damn it, this whole discussion is so pointless, just because you're such a miser doesn't mean everyone else is. The most fun I had in Vic 2 for example was uniting the British Isles as Beatlemania in Visegrad Mod.
This cunt can't die fast enough.

Had 5 provinces within 3 days flip to Paulican... no shit. Cannot convert any provinces I have that need it. Only two rebellions so far - could be worse considering I have 9 that need work; 5 heretical, 4 pagan.
US because it's the best empire in the history of mankind. UK because of their starting position, but also because they have some sick decisions, like forming the Commonwealth.
because planned economies are fucking cancer to manage
>capitalists cant build or open factories
too much micro for a huge country for it to be worth, id only do it if I changed that country's communist party to have state capitalism instead
this assumes you have max number of factories in every state
if you dont then youre just wasting your time building shit manually
anything over 10 states and theres no fucking way im doing planned economy
To build railroads you only need to ctrl+click once per state
And you only build factories in the beginning of the game, after you conquer a state or after you get a new type of factory. In all these cases it's easy 2bh
Japan is literally the worst ally in EU4.
They called me into a war against Korea, with Ming as an ally. Thinking because I had a military tech advantage as Manchu, id be able to stack wipe ming a few times pretty easily.
While Japan just sits on its island. Has enough cogs, and a navy, just wont get off the island.
So its pretty much a 2v1 shit show as ming and korea double team me, and force me to peace out, leaving me crippled, with so many provinces taken away from me im surprised Korea would pay that much diplo points for Ming.
Oh sorry did I trigger you?

He died after a year and his decadent son came to throne. In two weeks everyone decided to split. On the other hand nobody wanted the crown.
Decadent+short reign+low prestige due to losing rebellions+uncrowned.
Could have been a disaster for both sides. They had a +5 general but didn't use him/he died, luckily for me.
>can only get a sense of accomplishment by killing people
but killing is an integral part of soldering, especially jingoistic one
you're trying to obfuscate the matter here, you see the death and destruction of war as "something easy", implying you'd much rather do that than just be a regular contributor to society.
You didn't say "defend my country" or "help innocents", you specifically chose the phrase "shooting niggers".
There's something intrisically psychopatic about it
well, not really, we all know you're just a manchild who can't stop himself from romanticising about his video toy soldier in a distorted manner and you wouldn't ACTUALLY enroll
Big strawpoll for making USA great again
But really, its a genuinely good question who is more fanatical.
On the offtopic,
I couldnt make this up even if i wanted to.
>you see the death and destruction of war as "something easy"
Eh, again with jumping to conclusions based on your ignorance of military life. Grunts mostly spend time on patrol, guard duty or sleeping. There's not much death and destruction in the military, especially a peace time one.
>you wouldn't ACTUALLY enroll
That's where I'd make a bet with you if we were IRL, because I'm planning on doing exactly that after I sort out a few things in my life.
Racism and discrimination are the tools of the bourgeoisie to blind the common folk and turn them against themselves. How it still works in the era of free worldwide communication networks eludes me.

I wish I was living in America, lad. Kinda sucks they don't have some sort of a foreign legion 2bh.
Remind me, why are we having this discussion again? Why do you give a fuck what I think if you just keep disregarding my explanations and trying to insert bullshit thoughts in my head in a truly Freudian fashion?
>i will disregard actual complexities of the wide range of human genetic diversity and instead base my differentiation of human groups on one characteristic and even then, inconsistently
no it doesn't, it's just that the exponential growth of technology apparently becomes such, that the effects of evolution are negligible before the discovery of genetic manipulation
>everyone that disagrees with me is a homogenous "The Other"
America, lad. If I wanted to join an underfunded military filled with niggers I'd join the one where they at least speak my language (which I'm doing).
Yeah, repeating what I'm saying constantly while constantly twisting it's meaning and manipulating the context.
>disagreeing with us is disagreeing with yourself
That's just sounds like something out of a creepy dystopian fiction.
>Why live a pointless life just to suffer throughout it?
>it's just easy, you get to see the world, shoot niggers and have at least some sense of accomplishment.
>Grunts mostly spend time on patrol, guard duty or sleeping. There's not much death and destruction in the military.
There's not much to manipulate there, anon. You keep contradicting yourself.
I can confirm that. A lot of people from my country join the legion, but most of them quit or dessert after a while. A lot of them are edgy kids that trained in gyms for their whole life and think that war and killing is like in cowadooty.
yes they did
even Patton said it, Russia will grow stronger and we weaker
and he was right, look at europe, women being raped and "men" being beat, they can't even defend themselves
Well, the Tangier Protocol and the Belgium Conference stuff is working properly. I need to see how many people died in the Congo.
Strangely enough, the AI seem to be holding back from colonizing some places. I'm under the impression it doesn't want to spend more money colonizing, which would be interesting since it doesn't stop colonizing when it is low on colonial power, it only releases puppets.
Meanwhile, S-P and Italy are GPs. It's a very different game from the last game where Russia was the #1 GP and the UK was in the third place behind it and the USA.
Maybe until sunday.
Oh well, it seems the problem was actually in the invention. Something went wrong when I was limiting it to stop countries that have the Congo as a puppet colonizing over the Congo.
Around 7-6 million died in the Congo.
Open V2, host a multiplayer game on 127.0.0.1, selected a country that will stay out of trouble. Open V2 again, join a multiplayer game on 127.0.0.1, select the same country as you selected the first time. You should have two V2 running and on the same game with the same country. Start the game normally and after all is done, close the 2nd V2 program. Wait a bit and the game will tell you the other player dropped and if you want to replace it with the AI. Replace it and it's done, the AI is playing for you.

I usually fire the event manually and all the options too, see if they are working. Then I pay attention in the test games and see if it's working properly.
They do too. It's not only about states though, it's about your primary pops in a province and a bit of luck.
There are also reform requirements, you can't have all allowed rights as a reform.
>argues like a nigger
>nigger triggered this hard
>pretends to not be a retard
I suggest you reads into the subhuman nature of niggers a bit more and recognize why they don't understand cause and effect very well, nigger lover.
Tell me more about those african-focused studies they've done that prove they're of equal intelligence and self awareness than europeans and asians
Oh wait you can't because they all prove they're mentally incapable of acting like normal humans. Pick your doctor nigger, pick your NBA nigger, but 99.9% aren't them. They are subhuman, and you like to keep them around like pets for your status signalling. I'm not the racist one here, you are. They need to go home.

According to this niggers would be more apt to be included in the ape species instead of being considered human
What mod is this? I saw it in a previous thread
I agree, niggers are mostly similar to apes not only in terms of mannerisms but also genetically and should be re categorized. Didn't think I'd get that out of a nigger lover.
>Aggressive and self-injurious behaviors are fairly common in children with autism, says Des Roches Rosa. When her son Leo acts aggressively, it's usually due to sensory overload or frustration with his inability to communicate his needs effectively.
this is key, we must solve this
I agree, niggers would be better off in africa with their own brethren instead of being forced to live in completely alien and hostile cultures. I'm amazed at the progress you've made today.
>you can't laugh at retards irl
It's a shame too, because africans are inherently mentally retarded.
lad, you're embarassing yourself
go to /pol/
we like to discuss video games here, not refute people who have no idea what they're taling about
>refute people who have no idea what they're talking about
Like niggers being unable to recognize themselves in the mirror? Or being unable to figure out cause and effect? Or their average IQ being below mental retardation levels?
>argues like a nigger
>ignores studies that prove everything I've said
Detect the pathological nigger lover, why don't you liv ein africa?
reminder aurora is /gsg/ and only shitposters got it removed
but anon, you first need to understand those studies that you glance over, then you'd realise they don't actually support your views
It's okay soon we'll be able to replace those two slots with HOI4 and Stellaris :^)
If HOI4 ever comes out that is. They're doing major mechanics changes a year after it was supposed to come out, meanwhile EvW got nicked without even a word
Tbh if Africa becomes industrialized and gets lots of air conditioners (because it's impossible to come up with complex rational thoughts in a 50 Celsius degrees sun) their life quality would increase and there wouldn't be problems related to immigration and shit. In order for that to happen the West and the UN need to stop supporting the African dictatorships though.
Haven't been on gsg in awhile, is everybody's opinion of HOI4 still that its going to be a casualized piece of shit? I think it will be the EU4 to HOI3's EU3 in that It will be way more accessible to non-autists.
They can just change the unlawful territory opinion malus to annexed imperial principality (-40/province) / free city (-200/city you guaranteed them you chucklefuck) / elector (-400 spit them out now) and make them last 10 / 50 / 75 years each or something.
>If HOI4 ever comes out that is. They're doing major mechanics changes a year after it was supposed to come out, meanwhile EvW got nicked without even a word
because one would have been a great game that we could have made better forever and included genocide and populations, the other is a propaganda pushing casualization of the most extreme type of wargame simulator which has nothing to offer outside of 'streamlimed' 'features' and massive fucking provinces
which do you think johan is going to greenlight (the easier one that a mockery of Hoi3)

Blobs form too easy in Eu4
Is their a way for me to actually set the game to limit blobbing? I fucking hate Eu4 and I don't want to see the interesting world that happened in my ck2 game get reduced to like 5 blobs by the time I get to Victoria 2.
The state duma recently passed a law allowing anyone who speaks russian to be fast tracked to citizenship. There's approximately 80 million Turkmen/Uzbek/etc citizens who speak Russian. This is the death blow for Russia, and will guarantee Islamists rule them in the next 20 years.
This is what I refer to.
A pretty heavyhanded way if you're playing vanilla is to go into the static_modifiers.txt and change the line
ae_impact = -0.25
under ai_handicap to
ae_impact = 0.75
To make coalitions all over the place.
>I want cucklords to flood my country because we are stealing from them
You either help them become civilized and connected to the world economy or let them flood your country.
Same shit with India. If they had more tech they would be able to produce more cattle, food and energy for exportation.
Moscow will be another regional capital of the caliphate in 10 years if the traitors in the government continue to get their way and import Muslims from the former USSR. You're not missing much.
I warned them. I told them it was the stupidest thing in the world. It's still there. Hoi4 is the worst paradox production I've ever fucking seen.
>Implying the only reason they're doing this isn't to slowly regain soviet borders. Russian Nationalism glorifying (Soviet) Empire has been on the rise in the past decade or two komrade.
Now I don't know what each individual ship represents and do realize that the stack solution in other Paradox games is annoying at times, but the English Channel being four fucking sea zones across is ridiculous and I cannot see any way it would help gameplay, let alone realism.
no thank you, I prefer obscure memes for politicans
Omg it's not representative of our failure of a product guise it's old :^)
It's almost as if bad design and ideas stay bad over time
No Islamist has ever contributed to the Russian nation. Russia is not a nation for mongols. They were removed time and time again, blown the fuck out an dgenocided. The recent phenomenon of "ship them in and nurture those who you've already got" was the Bolsheviks trying to destroy russia from the inside out. It's worked pretty well, like their pushing for nigger integration in the USA.
I know China and Brazil are. America is content to stir up shit all over the place instead of doing something productive, they don't even have a fucking pattern - they've fucked up pro-US governments as well as anti-US governments, dictatorships, '''theocracies''' and (limited) democracies alike, it's like they feel blowing shit up is productive in and of itself.
Of course, they don't go to st. petersburg, moscow, Kazan, they all go to chechnya :^)
Oh wait, they're flooding moscow and st petersburg and specifically straining their health care systems at this very moment.
It's actually completely true. What kind of bubble do you live in, I wonder.
So how about Conclave lads
I'm looking forward to whatever they do with child rulers and hope to gods that I don't get informed what my traits anymore
In fact they need to get rid of the 'you've become not patient' 'you've lost just' 'you're slothful now' 'shits scary yo you're craven' events they're completely fucking random afaik and annoying as hell.
>it's like they feel blowing shit up is productive in and of itself
Americans are inherently like that for some reason. They like violence for the sake of it (see WWE, UFC, violent culture in general, guns, mindless assertive foreign policy and so on).
Investing in Africa has been so far good for Brazil because suddenly millions of people started to buy goods and services from Brazilian companies. Plus the influx from African immigrants significantly reduced because they had no reasons to leave their growing countries.
Educating Africans, sending them back to their countries and teaching them how to develop actually works better than multiculturalist-driven immigration and supporting tribal dictatorships. Resource-wise speaking Africa is rich as fuck but no one gets to explore these resources because of these retarded policies supported by the West and the UN.
Well, I mean - Africa right now is basically a rather large population of people stuck somewhere between 1500 and 1950. America has apparently fucking missed the obvious glaring notification that this is literally an unopened pot of gold to whoever taps it.
Two absolute monarchies versus degenerate republicans, think we can win lads?
