How fares your empire, /gsg/?

On this day in history, June 15th:
1215 – King John of England puts his seal to the Magna Carta.
1219 – Northern Crusades: Danish victory at the Battle of Lyndanisse (modern-day Tallinn) establishes the Danish Duchy of Estonia. According to legend, this battle also marks the first use of the Dannebrog, the world's first national flag still in use, as the national flag of Denmark.
1246 – With the death of Duke Frederick II, the Babenberg dynasty ends in Austria.
1389 – Battle of Kosovo: The Ottoman Empire defeats Serbs and Bosnians.
1520 – Pope Leo X threatens to excommunicate Martin Luther in papal bull Exsurge Domine.
1752 – Benjamin Franklin proves that lightning is electricity (traditional date, the exact date is unknown).
1888 – Crown Prince Wilhelm becomes Kaiser Wilhelm II; he will be the last Emperor of the German Empire. Due to the death of his predecessors Wilhelm I and Frederick III, 1888 is the Year of the Three Emperors.
1920 – A new border treaty between Germany and Denmark gives northern Schleswig to Denmark.

Obama (the government) is expending military points(the army improving their methods) to make use of new technology

In HOI3, if you let your dissent run wild, will it eventually lead to a regime change or revolution? Or does it just kill your industrial efficiency and spawn rebel militia?
I'm going to be playing multiplayer with some friends soon, and I was wondering if I played as Japan for example, tried to raise dissent as high as possible and have the USSR support the communist party in my country, if it would eventually lead to regime change?

Please tell me this is bait. I honestly belief it was just the right amount of provinces. Maybe we could actually use a few more on the pacific islands. Then again I'm not 100% sure how many divisions the US did actually use to capture Iwo Jima and the like

I have spent countless hours fucking around with it. It is quite fun and worth the time, buuut, I'm not sure I'd go as far as to call it GS since you only have control over the military/religious aspect of it, with almost no insight into politics or diplomacy.
Regardless of that, I really like it, but for other non-GS related reasons.

The size of the map was fine. What bothered me was the irrelevance of some provinces, which should provide certain resources, but didn't. Many urban provinces that didn't provide manpower or leadership for example. But that's not a problem of the map size per se

why is there no open source grand strategy game?

the way pradox' games work is pretty simple, a premade map which puts infos it reads out of premade country/province/history files on top of them with a rudimentary ai controlled by lua files to make it move.

that shouldnt be really hard for some hobby programmers to recreate?

That's why it's always a good idea to keep a small amount of mil points in reserve when playing EU 4, otherwise you may get delicious 2-3x revolts from a single province just as you spent all your points.

Hello, newfriend, apparently you have somehow found your way to /gsg/. Don't worry, it's a common mistake. You see, here we talk about Grand Strategy games, and sometimes to historical facts related directly to those games. Now, the holocaust isn't part of any GS, nor the question you ask relates at all to GS or any videogame at all. I think you should go to /pol/, that's probably the place you were looking for to begin with. Now, now, don't thank me, people get lost, it's just a fact of life. Have a nice day!

I think the asset Paradox was going for was your leader's ability to focus on and oversee these developments. You can either oversee new military tech or focus on suppressing dissent in the realm. Countries under good leadership are more efficient at fostering these developments and get ahead while countries with less capable rulers fall behind, which is more or less the historical result.

Of course there's no real denying that monarch power was designed first to be an engaging gameplay mechanic, and isn't really concerned with actually representing how technological progress actually happened.

CK 1 was a better dynastic game, if you started as a vassal, you had to build your way up through dynastic unions, going from count to king took several generations, in CK 2 you just save money, make faction to obtain realm, hire mercenaries, win.

In CK 1 characters actually died in battles and from diseases, that can happen in CK 2 but is much more uncommon than in 1.

CK 2 is a game about blobbing and is far too easy to keep your realm united, in CK 1 you could blob, but the larger your realm the more unstable it was and civil wars were assured.

CK 1 was event driven, while CK 2 is just about decisions.
You want to kill someone? here use a plot.
You want to change culture or religion? here, use a decision
CK 2 has a much better interface and AI and it's not so buggy but it doesn't have that RPG feeling CK 1 had.

Yeah, from that perspective it would have made sense to invest monarch power on a monthly basis into tech instead of essentially having you buy it. Wouldn't be as different from the EU3 mechanics, but since monarch power is used in so many other ways there'd be reason to not invest everything and stockpile instead.

I don't mind it the way it is now though, it's certainly not the first game to handle progression like this.

>>70891064
How you get monarch power is limited but you have a lot of options in how to spend it, so everything has an opportunity cost. I prefer it to the system in EU3 where you put what you needed to in minting and stability and dumped the rest into whatever tech you wanted next.

I like having control over culture conversion and coring but they should take much longer, yes.

Mountain is actually really fucking good, but it'll force you to tech it and you don't have any mountain provinces in Finland, just hills. If you do decide to keep them, make sure to put them in a separate division under a Commando leader. Finland has several good ones.

>>70896028
pick whichever team has highest skill and a lot of overlap. autistically calculating tech speeds won't make you much more efficient, so don't worry about it too much.
Tech stuff that's in your year or before it, generally you'll want to prioritize like this:
research speed in industry > infantry techs > land doctrine > other industry techs > armor techs > rest

for production, just focus on infantry for your first few games. add a few MOT and ARM for penetration. HQs are useful for making armies fight more effectively. the rest is useless or niche.

But eh EU3 system made sense both in a logical sense and as a game mechanic. You play well, you set sliders right, you run good policies, you get more cash and magistrates or whatever other resource is required to do the shit in game. The better you play the more you're rewarded.

Here it neither makes any fucking sense from a logical standpoint nor is it a good, engaging game mechanic. Just three resources used on absolutely fucking everything, and the amount you get is determined at random with hardly any player input going in to change the favour of it outside of hiring some advisors. It's utter bullshit and completely gamebreaking. As if mana as a resource system wasn't fucking horrible enough as is, its application in converting fucking cultures in a matter of a few years and gaining instant cores everywhere and generally used to execute every single fucking in-game action from waging war to constructing a building to taking a shit was terrible.

EUIV is a bad game. It just is. And when compared to it predecessor, it's absolutely fucking horrible. It's not engaging, it manages to have even less depth than EU3, it makes blobbing through inheritance piss easy as all fuck and yet at the same time pulls some insanely bullshit and unrealistic restrictions when doing it through conquest, and the decisions like forming Germany and shit are underwhelming as all fuck.

It doesn't. You're a fucking idiot.
Also keep in mind Germany was only neutered in the 20th century, that's not so long ago. And unlike Russia, the territories it held were majority German and places like Kalingrad Or Alsace-Lorraine no longer are because of mass deportation done on the part of the French/Russians.

Meanwhile you're saying Russia has claim to anything? Oh yeah because the majority population of fucking Finnland is Russian, right? Along with Estonia, latvia and lithuania, just russians there, right? Central Poland is all Russians too. Let me guess, all those fucking countries deported to poor Russians that made up 90% of the population in those areas? Shit even fucking Ukraine doesn't want anything to do with fucking Russia.

German Wallonia is the best scheme. France sucks at respecting regional identities, and Wallonia on its own just wouldn't jibe with the generally more blobular map going on there.

The man was talking about those territories in a historic sense. No shit they have no claim to them now. They DID have claim at some point though.

Meanwhile
>>70899995
In this post you fucking imply that Russia TO THIS FUCKING DAY has claims to territories it held before the fall of the Tzars, territories in most of which Russians weren't even a majority at any point, unlike with the German territories in question.

Russia doesn't have claim to shit. Get off Putin's dick.

They don't, because while both the Russian and German areas were lost at the same time, the ones lost by Germany actually HAD a majority German population, unlike with the Russians in the Baltic for example.

What? Russia didn't lose those core areas I outlined until the fall of the soviet union, in 1991.
Germany lost territory either in 1918 or 1945.
Nearly no germans actually live in those areas now, where as plenty of russians do, and russian is still the main language spoken in plenty of them (most people I speak with actually talk in russian, despite this being the nation's capital).

And it's hilariour that you are accusing me of being brainwashed by the propaganda in kiev, the city that was overthrown by a fascist anti-russian government.

/gsg/ likes to fellate Kaiser Bill's cock, but the Kaiser and his ministers were a bunch of damn fools who misjudged things plenty.

Bloody Sunday and all of 1905 should've been an indicator enough that the Imperial Russian government wasn't fit to last, and either was going to have to undergo substantial (and likely drawn-out and plagued with unrest) reforms or try to pretend nothing bad was happening and then implode in revolution the next time a crisis came around.

What reforms and improvements Russia /did/ act on usually relied on foreign investment and involvement anyways, which also goes contrary to the point of old Russia being a strong, independent great power who don't need no man. Heck, the ferries that criss-crossed Lake Baikal to complete the Trans-Siberian railroad were made in Britain and the locomotives were made in America!

Have you looked at russia on a map recently?
Note how its a shitload bigger than all of europe combined, far more removed from the west and has very little naval access?
Russia just barely removed serfdom, it was still an agrarian state.
And despite this it had industrial outputs close to the major european industrial nations.
If russia didn't get fucked over by bankrolled bolsheviks then it would have caught up to germany in twenty or so years (a big part of the revolution was the plight of newly arriving city workers in neophite russian urban centers).

And it's silly to think that their fears were unfounded, considering that the Soviet Union was a dominant superpower even after suffering through two horrible world wars, a civil war, and being run by communists.

There's that word again. Let me let you in on a secret: They're not fucking fascists.

Not him, but Tymoschenko's term was marked by nationalistic measures. Anti-gay laws, anti-minorities laws, cases of burned Romanian Orthodox churches [who were leaning toward the Romanian Metropolitan Bishop instead of Moscow's], and many other nasty stuff. Fascist isn't exactly the right term, since it only applies to Mussolini's Italy, but Ukraine did its fair share of "fascist" actions

Finally managed to create the Kingdom of Aquitaine, so all the land I own is de jure. Which is the better title to set as primary-- Aquitaine or Navarra? Navarra was the first crown I got, but my character and dynasty have all been Occitan and making Aquitaine the primary title would be more befitting for that, right?

And we're back with the worst borders you have ever seen.

For those of you who don't remember, this is a converted 867 CK2 save that I fully intend to take all the way through HoI3 (or DH, if I can convert it properly). The purpose is primarily to see how horribly Johan's AI will butcher the world in over 1,000 years, but to keep things interesting I have endeavored to spread the Norse faith as far as possible.
