As can be seen by this threads title this is going to be and adaption of the 476 Scenario for EU2 to EU3 (In Nomine to be precise). From what I know there was an earlier attempt to do this but it sadly didn't end up with anything people could download and play. This is going to be different (I sincerely hope). The timespan will be 476 to 800, may change latest selectable year to 814 or possibly as late as 850 if people really really want it but at least to begin with I think it would be a good idea to focus on what I actually have reasonable information on.
I have a plan on how I'm going to do this, and it basically is two phases. The first phase will just be to make sure we get all the countries placed on the map, this phase ends when all the area that contained countries for the EU2 version have countries. The second longer phase will on the other hand have no fixed end, it is simply getting events, ideas etc done, not to say that no events and such things will done in the first phase, it is just that that phase will not focus on such. Also note that the work done in the first phase may still see tweaking in the second phase.
So what does this mean is going to be done now? Well tech-groups, religions and the map are the foremost things. Map changes will at the moment be limited to the provinces, I don't plan on making a map from scratch even though we aren't going to use the new world. I plan to do all of this region by region and starting with Italy, then Dalmatia and then not decided. Techgroups and religions should preferably be finalized when we get to areas they should interact with (so for now religions and techgroups for the Far East doesn't need to be decided, and for religion only catholic and arianism are necessary - but what techgroups we have in Europe should be decided as soon as possible).
So apart from general suggestions and such, I currently want ideas on:
a) What techgroups should Europe be divided between?
Currently plans on having one for the Romans, one for the Goths, Vandals etc, one for the Franks, Alemanns, Saxons etc., one British, one Anglosaxon, and one Scandinavian (those last two could potentially be the same group). Also one for the Nomads.
b) Any specific ideas on how the provinces of Italy should look (as well as their names, and preferably citynames and tradegoods, as well as cultures).
Currently plans to reduce number in the north and to have more in the south (already moved Siena and changed it to Benevento).
