just had a little look into it, byz seems to have lost much of her cores. are missions added?
While playing Golden Horde one of my provinces (I think it was the northernmost one) has 0.00 tax because it is distant overseas >.>
Great mod so far though. Are there any plans to change the earliest starting date?
Anyone else see 'no culture' provinces around Armenia in the 1356 start?
Death and Taxes 4.0e alpha is available to download
The 4.0e alpha is here. It mainly fixes localisation and other small bugs, as well as preventing the in game colony name change event from constantly firing. I really need your help getting it ready for the final release. Please could you PM Rakhasa any details of the IGCNC event firing multiple times for any provinces, since he has worked out how to fix it but he still needs the names of all the affected provinces.

This is a pretty subjective suggestion but I think the contrast on the new flags is turned down way too much. Blues, purples, and other dark colors are nearly black. Dyes were pretty vibrant, I think its probably okay to let the coats of arms be a little more colorful.
I would really appreciate it if people could take this online survey to give me feedback about the mod. Thanks.
I think Byzantium should have less cores rather than more, on the immediate coast of asia minor and slightly more inland.
"Resistance is futile. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be assimilated into the collective." - Genghis Khan
There are less cores than game start, a small number of cores on the Anatolian coast and cores on all the greek provinces.
As general ideas for improving religion, which of the following do you prefer?
-Incorporating Dei Gratia
-Adding more religions and events
-Create a new religion system with new religions, minorities and other things
Also, is anyone interested in helping me add colonial companies into the mod, if someone could help with flags leaders or history that would be great.
Um it says the Emperor is a 'No Ruler' in the 1356.
For all of them. And Byzantium.
Speaking from personal experience. It's a complicated web of flags and events.
