Thanks Arch Mede, as usual your posts are very helpful!
I've got a question about becoming a GP in the PDM mod:
Playing as Brunswick (German Minor) I managed to climb onto the 8th rank, due to a massive about of prestige. I do own 4 regions.
I'm on the 8th rank for about a year now, but I didn't manage to become a GP yet. So do I have to leave Prussias sphere first? And wont they declare war on me for adding me to their sphere again?
Just after starting the game again and playing 1-2 more days I became a GP, shame on me :<
Not familiar with PDM; but in the normal game you have to have more than one state to be a Great Power.
Hey, I'm playing as the Confederate States of America (released in early 1850's w/o civil war), and the year's 1863. I've been trying to get reactionaries in charge, because there are only laissez-faire parties (minus the reactionaries and socialists, who aren't very popular, despite 2 elections per year). I was wondering what's the best way to become a monarchy or presidential dictatorship? I understand I'd have to piss off a certain section of the populace (soldiers?) and get a revolution, but I'm not sure how. Any advice?
Also, in my USA game, w/ 2 elections per year, I still couldn't get the conservatives out of power into the year 1920... does the USA have some pro-conservative modifier or something?
Ideology: Radical (Anarchocapitalist/Liberal)
Issues: Laissez-faire/Pacifism/Free Trade/Full Citizenship/Atheism
Revolt Risk: 100%
I follow Paradox on Twitter and have Johan's photo on my phone for Twitter messages. I also follow the Pope. When the Pontiff tweets, I see the picture and lately I wonder "yes, but is Johan speaking ex cathedra?"

I'm confused about the different territories. I'm playing with Spain right now in 1873 and I've retaken all of the former Spanish colonies in South America and also Hispaniola... I took over parts of Africa and Southwest Asia too. My question is what is the difference between establishing a protectorate and conquering? Difference between Satellite and Dominion too? Also - how do I colonize somewhere? When I try to send my people from my African territory to colonize an area next to it, it tells me I need at least 20 life value in that prospective colony. Do I need to wait until the Scramble for Africa in the mid 1880s to happen ingame to be able to start taking parts of Africa other than my conquered Ethiopia and Egypt?
Thanks so much guys! Good to be on your site!
Proctecterate conquers an unciv and turns it into colonies of yours for small amounts of infamy.
Conquest conquers a civ and turns it into a state of yours for large amounts of infamy.
What benefits do the other cavalry have over the original?
Ignored: Nuril, videonfan, Pandi
And a question:
I'm China. It's 1880. Why are almost all Manchu POPs outside Manchuria military personnel? (Not that I'm complaining much, since it means there are provinces that can support 40 brigades of Guards...)

Please help me with this. What is the factor that influence the amount of raw goods from a RGO ? Does it tie to tech and autocrat only? Do increasing the numbers of laborer in a RGO help with increasing the output raw goods?
Is there a way to change the system of government? I went from HM Government to a Presidential Dictatorship in Spain and I can't change the upper house or the ruling party or anything. I heard it was supposed to get more democratic as time went on but when I was King I allowed full voting rights and then this new reactionary thing took over and now I am presidential dictator and it took away all the rights I gave the people..

New question: should I close down bankrupted factory or just leave it there?
Regarding bankrupted factories, I usually leave them ... and only close them down and remove them when they get in my way. Sometimes, they can be useful and profitable, depending, what happens later in the game.
What do the factories build then, with the two paint cans that are tipped over?
