The Industry efficiency bonuses usually increase cash flow enough ... and allow me to build new factories while I'm at it. Commerce doesn't do that.
    Commerce is now the only tech tree that improves output - industry does throughput instead, so you need more inputs to get more out. So if you focus entirely on industry and ignore the commerce tree, you'll have Soviet-style industries - large but inefficient. They'll be outcompeted by smaller, better-run countries in no time. Overall, you need to think a fair bit harder about which techs to go for with the new economic model, as big does not always equal better; 5% more cement throughput in a coal shortage will do no good where -2% input or +2% output will pay dividends.
    For every subtle and complicated question, there is a simple and straightforward answer, which is wrong.

    Yes, as Finnish is in the "Scandinavian" group.

    I don't play Divergences, but when clearing the map cache, you delete the stuff inside the folder, not the folder itself. This applies when installing any mod.

    How do you manage to increase relations high enough to make alliances with Great Powers? I'm playing my second full game (I've started and ended a few early) as Prussia. My first finished game was as France, and I never attacked anyone who had a similar/higher military score to mine, so an alliance with the UK/Russia/etc. wasn't necessary.. However, I just formed the NGF by using the Assert Hegemony CB on Austria. I had alliances with all of the minors (aside from Saxony and Bavaria), and despite maxing relations with Russia and France, providing military access, and giving war subsidies, they still refused to form an alliance with me. It certainly would've been a lot easier with the help of either one, and I'm hoping to be able to enlist the aid of the U.K. and/or Russia when I go after Alsace-Lorraine.

    GPs are pretty picky about whom they ally with. Each one will ally with two other GPs at max, which means sometimes somebody loses the game of diplomatic musical chairs and is left without a partner. Check who potential allies are currently allied with; you may be too powerful to get UK, France, or Russia to ally with you. I think infamy plays a role too, but that I'm less sure about.

    Alright, thanks. If infamy does have something to do with it, then that would make sense, as I have been at a near constant ~20 infamy since the first year, when I declared war on Denmark (with the CBs of Unification, Acquire Jylland, Acquire Greenland & Iceland, Humilate, and Add to Sphere).

    Playing as belguim got a free casius beeli against netherland on border incident and I go to use it and the declare war button is greyed out because it says netherlands is a sphere leader? What does that mean? thye are a great power, I am secondary power. dn't see where they have a sphere though.

    Most likely you are in their sphere. There should be a decision that lets you leave their sphere if you've got enough prestige and low enough relations with the sphere master.

    I am not in thier sphere, they don't have anyone at all in thier sphere. It says I am cordial with them (not sure how), so I am decresing relations with them. But the greyed ot button still says thing about sphere for not being able to go to war.

    help. they must pay.

  16. #1356
    Relation and Influence are two different things. Only major powers can influence a nation's... influence. Relation has nothing to do with it. If you are in their sphere you have to have HORRIBLE relations with them AND be a secondary power.

    Can someone tell me what value in which file must I change to add a black border ala PDM? Completely forgot the name of both
    The Eternal State - a DH-KR Ottoman AAR - Dropped due to health reasons

    Struggle for the Mediterranean - a BOR Punic War MP AAR
    - Dropped due to AGEOD leaving Paradox

    One of these days I will actually finish an AAR

    There was a mod that allowed you to install the PDM borders.

    You automatically get research points like before, but instead of spending them on normal techs, you save them up to enact the reforms. Later on when you westernise, you'll get the 'normal' techs you missed, depending on whether you're sphered or not, and if yes by whom, etc.
