    Great War: American Front

    "I see that you European powers are taking advantage of this rebellion to meddle in America, the way you used to before the Monroe Doctrine stopped you. Napoleon props up an emperor in Mexico, and now France and England arein cahoots to support the Rebels. Well, we can play that game too. And I reckon one fine day we'll have friends of our own in Europe, friends who will help us get back what you have taken away."

    "A European power to help you against Britain and France?" For the first time Lord Lyons was undiplomatic enough to laugh. The usual American bluster was bad enough, but this was lunacy. "Good luck to you, Mr. President. Good luck to you."


    I am therefore officially rooting for a Franco-German strike on Russia, prompting the Soviets to strike back with their hitherto secret nukes. This will serve as a salutary lesson to all involved and leave everyone suitably chastened.-El Pip

    Great War: The American Front: Can the United States defeat Britain and its Confederate Lackeys? Or will the CSA defend its freedom against the Yankee Menace?

    Well I want to create a bunch of ministers and land/naval units for the US, CSA, and Canada. But in order to do so I need to find out what id#s are available for the units and ministers. I tried some random numbers and it turns out they are already taken in the game, so there is a scenario error.

    Sound's great!

    Nit-pick: Puerto Rico should be CS territory.

    I like this. Finally a decent HT mod for a Paradox Game. Will you do a WWII version?

    I suggest the following:
    - Canada can use ids between 222001and 224999;
    - USA can use ids between 602001and 604999;
    - CSA can use ids between 242001and 244999;

    We've assigned 5000 ids to each nation, so I've just given you the last 3000 ids used by CAN, USA and CSA (they don't have more than 2000 ministers so you should be safe). Please note that the same ids can be used for leaders and tech teams too.
    Let me know if it works.

    Hrm, mayhaps I am doing this worng.

    Here is what I have down:

    landunit =
    { id = { type = 222001 id = 1 }
    name = "Ejercito de Cuba"
    location = 1913
    Division =
    { id = { type = 222001 id = 2 }
    name = "1a Brigada de Ejercito"
    strength = 10
    type = infantry
    model = 2
    experience = 0
    }
    Division =
    { id = { type = 222001 id = 3 }
    name = "1a Brigada de Caballería 'Floridita'"
    strength = 30
    type = cavalry
    model = 2
    extra = artillery
    brigade_model = 0
    experience = 2
    }
    }
    This gives me an error, though. I'm not sure why?

    I thought the CSA fought the Spanish-American war in this timeline and snatched Cuba and Puerto Rico, but I just checked it and the wiki says that the CSA bought Cuba around 1970. Puerto Rico is not mentioned, so I take everything back.

    BTW, will you include certain revolters (don't want to spoil anything for the ones who didn't read the novels).

    US flag for the great war!
    "The 34-star United States flag. The gaffe over separate references made to a 34-star and a 33-star flag in Walk in Hell became one of Harry Turtledove's most famous inconsistencies."

    plus i hope you change color of Canada(feels weird if both CSA and Canada have white color)

    That's how it's in the books.

    BTW, feel free to take anything from my mod if you'd like to do so, Faeelin.

    I know. It sucks. I didn't read a lot of Turtledove books, but they seem very improvable. I wonder if returning that provinces to Mexico would be hard modding.
