Indeed it does! It still crashed at first, but once I went and completely deleted the victoria 2 folder, replaced it with my backup copy, re‐installed the mod, and converted my save another time, it now runs perfectly. The mythical siren nation of MRI whose economy ran on plundering bypassing merchant ships after luring them into crashes has been forgotten by history, Louisiana is in place, and after the saving and reloading thing, those countries deserving of Great Power status were rightfully given such. Thank you very much! The feeling of catapulting the nation you spent four centuries on nourishing and growing into the age of industrialism is utterly delightful.
