    My very first non-cheat, Divine Wind, Castille game. It is December 2, 1499.



    I discovered almost all coastal provinces and most ocean provinces (or whatever they're called) by 1490, except the Pacific. Back in around 1450 or so I annexed Mali, giving me a huge infamy of 37 (still at 7.5 in 1499) and causing a huge guerrilla war that only ended in 1495. I have effectively nerfed Portugal to a complete minor (they even lost their COT), and Aragon is my only neighbor capable of putting up a fight. Morocco and Algeria are my beaches, yet they declare war every once in a while, where I steamroll them.

    Starting as an OPM with no outside cores, I had to settle for scraps for the first 50 years or so before things began to take off. An alliance with HRE and 'Conqueror of Asia' Austria helped me to survive Westernization, Modernization, and my accession into the HRE (for the purpose of getting extra protection against the once-powerful Ottomans). Now Ragusa reigns supreme in the Balkans, and I likely will not expand much further as I plan to transfer this game to Vic2 and I want things to still be competitive.
    I would suggest finish getting the Greek peninsula, because it'll become nigh impossible in V2 otherwise.

    Why didn't you at least vassalize Aragon? Also be sure to get those Caribbean and Central American provinces.

    When I fought Aragon their army was bigger than expected. An entire army was wiped out and the only other remaining one in the entire Iberian Peninsula was down to 4000 men. Just as I was moving my North African armies (2 stacks, 10,000 each), the Aragonese navy was right next door, about to pounce. Thankfully the war ended right then and there (I was not the starter nor defender of the war.) I might recall a North Africa army in the future to fight the Aragonese, but constantly Morocco and Algiers declare war. I can't make any deals except for annulling of treaties and conceding defeat otherwise my huge infamy skyrockets again. Right now though I am into a Milan game trying to unite the HRE, very challenging. The good part is that I am allied with the HRE since the first 10 years, and both of us have been nerfing Europe lately. I hope for electors to realize how bad they are and vote for me instead. Our best war was nerfing Austria into 3 provinces and freeing Tyrol and Styria. But Bavaria came in and fought Tyrol, my coalition beat them back but they took control of my Tyrol. They vassalized them in a separate deal. The same day I declared war on Tyrol to overthrow the Bavarian regime and put mine back in. Very bad time to by Tyrolian, having two countries fight on your soil for control of it. I managed to free Tyrol, and then vassalize them. Then the Sytyrians came in, but thankfully war did not break out and they withdrew within 4 months. Very interesting last few years in the HRE.

    Rainbow Dash? Brohoof to your friend there.

    Cyprus would be a bit nicer if you acquired that Spanish enclave.

    I'm playing as Thurungia. I'm the HRE emperor, and most of my land expansion has been through PUs. Must admit, it's a lot easier to see a 3/4/3 emperor rise to the throne while you're inheriting 5 countries.



    This is a pic of Asia in my Thurungia game. I've never had Mughals form, seen massive Yemen, or AI come so close to forming Japan.



    Btw, can someone explain to me why the AI mints at 75% inflation when it has over 1k gold in treasury?

    Because its bonkers. Why do you think castille annexes all of North africa and pieces of Turkey? Why do the ottomons take pieces of Sweden? Because the AI has gone completely and utterly mad.

    I am playing my own personal mod. However, the only deviation from DW 5.1 is that I gave Thurungia kings the names of the Targaryen dynasty from 'A Song of Ice and Fire'.

    purple is me, is brittany.

    My friend is Danemark.

    The game is really fun, austria inherited bohemia, and keeps trying to kill everybody, and france made a quite powerfull blob. The ottomans can almost form russia (^^) which leads to a pretty balanced game.
