    My current game with Aragon (5.1, just normal difficulty, no mods)

    The Colonies:


    The Mainland:


    The Vassals:


    I just recently colonized the final province in South America, which could have happened a lot earlier if I hadn't dropped QftNW too soon. The next step will be to annex Savoy for Dauphine and Milan for Parma and then... I don't really know. Maybe I'll carve additional vassals out of the HRE and trim Bohemia some more... or maybe I'll just start a new game.

    I like how neat the borders are in France. What nation is the blue near the Pyrenees? I don't recognize it by the color.

    Cores are Ragusa (obviously), Zeta, Bosnia (Boundary Dispute with Hungary IIRC), Serbia, Kosovo (Boundary Dispute with Serbia), Albania (Boundary Dispute with Venice, then got it off Albania when they declared independence), Macedonia and the province above it (both boundary disputes with the Ottomans) and Larissa (conquest mission).

    I also have untaken cores from Claims on our Rivals on Corfu, Edirne, Croatia and Bulgaria.

    I inherited a pretty much fully formed France out of pure luck and since I prefer mid-sized vassals to blobby ones I released a couple of French minors and split the rest of the French territory amongst them. The prestige loss for all the gifted provinces (during a regency council...) was rather harsh but I'm a sucker for nice borders. The blue nation near the Pyrenees is Guyenne.

    Well, Russia's glory faded somewhat during the last 25 years... not my fault though, I swear
    Kind of sad since Russia doesn't form too often in my games.

    Did Byzantium manage to survive or did they reform via revolt?

    They survived and did rather well for themselves for a while, partly because I conquered Castille, fought a couple of big wars with Austria and vassalized Venice I guess. Byzantiums problems only really started when England apparently decided that Anatolia is an integral part of the Commonwealth.

    Welcome to the forums! I always liked the Steppe Wolf mods. AirotciV was a lot of fun, though a bit buggy. Also, I love reading about Ottomans struggling against Byzantines, instead of the other way around, haha.

    Q_Q hi fellow Steppe Wolf player

    Very nice Ottomans...

    You're playing as Anhalt in Steppe Wolf? What a tiny country Q_Q have fun with that... that should be a challenge.

    I don't like playing Steppe Wolfe, it has ridiculous bias to Bulgaria, loads of ridiculously good leaders and unrealistic bonuses, etc. If they got rid of that it would be a really nice mod.

    I don't know, Byzantium always gets 9/9/9 or straight eights whenever I play Vanilla, D & T, etc. Lucky nations is set to random...

    Byzantium has a high likelihood of being chosen as a lucky nation when it is "random."

    The results of my Naples/Italy game on hard difficulty, no mods:





    From the start I wanted to unite Italy because I had never seen the AI do it, probably because the computer isn't great at dealing with the complexities of the HRE mechanics. Urbino came close in one of my games, but they got crushed by Austria after making the terrible decision to annex Pisa.

    Unfortunately, forming Italy and fighting Bohemia took most of my time, so I didn't get around to cleaning up the American colonies or conquering the rest of Byzantium. It was necessary to declare war on Bohemia and prevent them from enacting the last few imperial reforms, but the successive wars dragged on for decades and resulted in dangerously high war exhaustion on both sides, until the combined effects of the wars caused all of the electors to switch the votes to someone else. I don't know how Bohemia survived after that.
