    Looks great so far man. I'm going to wait for this mod to play a Byzantium game myself.

    We'll try and get it up as soon as possible; there're a number of small bugs and a lot of missing localisation to fix. Hopefully first public version will be out within the week.

    As stated, all volunteers and suggestions are appreciated!

    Oh, I have a quick question. Will this mod be compatible with previous unmodded saves or would one need to start a brand new game? I have a Papal State game in vanilla DW right now, and seeing your improvements makes me excited.

    The save game should work with this mod, however you may have national ideas that no one else can unlock yet, and the accentuated sliders may not have the effects you expected (e.g. full land will give a massive naval force limit reduction). It is recommended you start a new game but its up to you. Im glad you're looking forward to it, we'll try to release the game as soon as possible.

    Thanks, we'll try to release it as soon as possible. I'm a sucker for Byzantium games myself and initially created this as a 'For Rome' mod for me to play myself. I hope you enjoy it.

    This merits interest. I will try to ensure I have some time to try it out.

    Eh I might just start a new one anyways. I'm kinda landlocked against Milan at the moment and they have a whole lot of strong allies, and things don't look to be changing anytime soon lol.

    Thanks for the heads up though.

    This looks very promising, looking forward to it!

    Some small suggestion for the generic mission overhaul. The construction missions are somewhat sad today and should probably be reworked one way or the other. Making them not appear in distant oversea provinces would be a good start, perhaps a land connection to capital could be a requirement? Also adding trade goods requirement for Universities/Fine Art academies would be nice, to get rid of the annoying "build University in your only cloth province" and similar. Finally I don´t know if there could be a maximum amount owned buildings for the mission to fire, if you own all of north Italy building another university is probably not high on your prio list.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I agree that those missions are very annoying and are working on changing the requirements. For now they just give bigger bonuses when completed (e.g. 20 army/navy/cultural tradiition) though we will work on that. In the meantime, we just need to fix all the bugs and release the beta!

    If anyone has a suggestion as to how we can make it so all the cultures in India get accepted by Hindustan, we would be grateful if you could let us know. So far we've tried making HIN a cultural union tag for all of them as well as adding "culture_group_union = X" to the decision.

    Yeah, getting some kind of reward is a good start (the 4 star Artist is more a insult IMO). I think that it is good that some missions are better than others, not all missions should be great. What really annoys me now is getting almost only worthless missions once the Nation specific missions are done with and the construction missons are enabled.

    Looking forward to the beta!

    Yeah, not all missions should be great, but getting the same one continuously is just stupid. Through adding more specific missions, we've made it so the boring ones don't happen until later. We're also working on some more generic ones, such as PU nearby minor missions. We hope you enjoy the mod when it does finally come out!

    Construction missions are revamped; manufactory missions should be much less common, and modifiers have been added in offsetting the tendency to get them more often as you grow. They give a 6* advisor, 20 cultural tradition and 1 base tax now, too.

    Oh, and they can't fire in provinces with other manufactories' goods.

    Here are some screenshots to give you a sneak peek at the Roman Empire in 'Death and Taxes'.

    Will the Byzantine "revived eastern roman empire" flag be any different?

    Edit: Wait nevermind, I'm thinking of a different mod lol

    Byzantium is the Eastern Roman Empire, it's just the name historians gave it. I just didn't feel the need to change it.
