    Here's my German empire as of 1917.

    Just got another CB on France and think I might grab the rest of Madagascar.

    That is a sexy Mexico.
    I love playing as Mexico, i find it an interesting country in historical terms.
    I played a Mexican game and instead of going how you did, i went straight up the western coast, backed the CSA, then by the end of the game i owned Alaska and British columbia in the north (fought the British for it) and i pushed south all the way to Panama.
    Shame i don't have the screenshot :/ i lost a bunch of files.

    What's wrong with the UK not having cracked 10k? also, Russia doing so badly is largely down to me...

    Seems odd to me, too; UK seems untouchable to me until China civilises/becomes competetive; although in my game, Russia is perfectly capable of sabotaging himself!

    The point being that my game is a different version to 1.2. I'm trying to illustrate that the version we have, no country is anywhere near as dominant as the UK tends to be in 1.2.

    This is good to see, and nice sphere you have going there.

    I guessed it was from a 1.3 beta. Industry scores look to be lot lower across the board, the UK is actually not dominating industry, and in 1.2 Russia tends to be 2 or 3 in industry from game start through its 'demote all its peasants to craftsman' trick, which does not seem to have happened in your game. For reference, I looked at a 1883 save of my most recent game, the UK had 8000, Russia (who has done virtually nothing) was 2nd with 3000 and 7 countries had over 900 industry. I like your version.

    Personally (this isn't a hint as to what our version is like, this is just me thinking out loud) I like serious variation as to how the AI performs, with the proviso that it's plausible. I'd like Germany, the UK, the US and France to do well almost all the time. I'd like the Russians, Turks and Austrians to sometimes turns it around and do well, sometimes fall out of the GPs altogether. And so on. By its nature the pecking order in V2 changes a lot less from start to end than in EU3, but I think the right balance is near as to how the various countries perform.

    Japan wasn't guaranteed a Meiji Restoration, nor was Persia guaranteed not to have one of its own. Any game can always be better balanced, but bearing in mind that you cannot always please everyone, I suspect people will generally be happy with the balance side of the new patch.

    Remember, those are my opinions and my opinions alone. I don't speak for anyone else.

    Speaking of that Persia thing, could they not have a very, very, VERY rare event, unlocking a generic Meiji Restoration for uncivs? Enough that it doesn't happen all that often, but enough that it happens enough that people notice.

    As someone who plays Persia, it is not challenging to civilize after you research Freedom of Trade. The Soldier POPs literally breed yourself the necessary Mil score and the prestige from beating down the nearby uncivs should be enough.

    That's a pretty impressively-sized Italy.

    Late-game performance issues are supposed to be addressed in the upcoming 1.3 patch.

  18. #1018
    Perhaps, but it doesn't matter if it's necessary. It adds a fun, unstable, and to my knowledge plausible, element to a game.

    Is posting images on this forum different than for others? I keep trying to put imageshack links in the proper image tags, and I'm still not getting anything to show up.
