    Unpredictable II - RandomHoI3 2.3 FTM - War in the East

    Unpredictable II

    War in the East


    So I have settled in nicely into my new home, 300 miles away in the north of England, and I think it is time to introduce a new world where it looks like as if someone sneezed a rainbow onto the world map and called them countries. This time I will be playing FTM (For the first time even though I had it pre-ordered!) as well as using an updated world generator which won't quite have as much chaos where each countries borders lie. So no more countries like Wales in my previous AAR which held most of the Carribean, the far north of Canada, part of Mexico, Greenland, Iceland and Bermuda.

    As you can tell by the title I am going to be in a different theatre of war although the variation in the terrains will be similar. The area where I am choosing a country will range from (using modern country locations) Iran to Japan and as far south as Australia. I also plan on being a Comintern country, this does not neccessarily mean I will join the Comintern but the option will be considered. Although I will not choose a nation until the next post but I thought I would inform you of the parameters of my decision. If I do not find a country that meets this choice and does not look like it could possibly be a country that could become a great nation, (like Bulgaria in my previous AAR) I will choose either a far right or try and push a country towards being a Leninist/Stalinist state.

    For those of you interested in this mod you can either find it by going to the main HoI3 forum and enter the user modification subforum and click on Random Scenario and Map Generator where you can find information about the mod etc. If you've gathered what the mod is all about already click here to goto the download page for the mod.

    With that all said and done, I think it's time to introduce you to the new world that I have created. First the parameters for this world:

    Almost 30 countries less than last time, hopefully this will remove some of the microstates that couldn't possibily stand a chance.



    Less leaders this time however ALL leaders will start with no experience.



    Again this time I'm making it more of a level playing field to hopefully stimulate different focus' for each nation.



    Similar to last time however this time Democratic nations will have a higher neutrality.



    No units for anyone once again.



    Strategic Resources is a new option but has been left on its default. As I haven't had a chance to explore FTM I don't know exactly what they do so for this game it will be left alone.



    I unticked victory keypoints, again something I'm unsure about. Rocket sites will appear a little more often than before. More ports will have coastal defences and there should be fewer forts or more concentrated forts.



    This is a new option which affects the way the map is generated, the option is self explanatory.



    And now for what you have all been waiting to see:



    Axis: Togo (The bright green nation in Scandinavia)
    Allies: The Choctaw Nation (The purple nation in East Africa, Yemen/Oman and Madagascar)
    Comintern: The Maldives (The pale purple where Yugoslavia would be)

    In the east it is a sea of conflicting ideologies, the majority are either Socialist or Federal Left wing governments with no elections or Far right or Absoloute Monarchys without elections. There are a few democratic nations but it certain looks like this will be a war of ideology in the east. I have looked at a few of the nations and I will make my decision soonish. The updates will not be too regular I don't think but I still have to check my timetable (I start my course proper on monday and they were supposed to upload my complete timetable today but I can't seem to find it) but it might be every wednesday.

    So when everything sorts itself out I will return a begin another drive for world domination.

    I'll definetly be following. Followed your last Unpredictable and was actually thinking of beating you to starting a FTM & New Generator -AAR, but unfortunately the new Research AI (I'm guessing) made my game run unbearably slow.

    please, use random focus in techs. Ai will fight a lot better with this, because it create a lua script for every country. If not they will research and produce the same. Pacific is a nice option too, if you want to have great naval battles in the pacific

    Also, micro countries now has a chance because they now build hordes of militia

    Victory key points give +10 in land fort, AA and naval fort in the provinces you need to conquer to win the game. Also resources.

    i recommend from 70 to 120 max countries. but with 150 my games are faster too (quadcore 6600 @ 2.88). You can notice a little slowdown at start, but for few days

    If you want to do one then do it. Its quite fun to watch something else that the usual bulk of Soviet/German AARS.

    Subscribed! IMHO you should go with either the bright green in Beijing (assuming it's not a colony) or the other bright green in the Caucasus.

    No idea.

    Also guys, there's no point shouting out for things cause I'm going for the communist countries which are probably not going to be the one you're shouting out.

    First post will appear tomorrow.

    CROATIA

    1

    1936





    After two years of civil war, Croatia's ruling elite were toppled by a popular uprising. In it's place came a system that although more beneficial for the working man, those at the top quickly began to show their harsher sides. Brutal crackdowns on prodemocracy advocates with many simply dissappearing from all state records. Along most of its borders forts had been constructed for a war that never happened forty years earlier. These were still maintained as they continued to be fairly advance and had cost the nation a great deal of money to build.

    Many of the fleeing nobleman and wealthy buisnessmen fled south east into Nigeria. Nigeria, once part of Croatia many centuries ago, mirrored their former rulers and was lead by a King and surrounded by men of power. Despite many protests lodged by diplomats of the new government of Croatia, Nigeria continues to deny the extradition of refugees. Nigeria also does not officially recognise the Kommunisticka partija Hrvatske as the legitimate government of Croatia.

    To the south west lies Australia, who a decade earlier revolted against their democratic government. They believed they were corruptted to the core by wealthy buisness men who lobbyed for looser restrictions on the minimum wage or ended any attempts to institute anything that would benefit the people and not their profits, with well placed bribes.

    In the north is Parana, a large peaceful nation. Although there are parties that represent the far left or the far right, the government continues to act fairly and in the interest of the people.

    Finally in the east is Poland. The national socialist party of their nation lead a coup that toppled the fragile republic which had seen months of rioting and looting because of their government defaulted on their debts and their was no one to keep the peace. Although they have greatly improved the situation, behind closed doors Polish men and women would prefer to see a more open and tolerant society however many remain silent when suspected members of the communist party are rounded up and locked up without any charge.



    Technologically, Croatia has suffered a brain drain with many people having emigrated during the years before the civil war and many of the educated were no refugees in Nigeria.



    Although the ruling party, they had yet to consolidate their rule. A great suppression and control of the education system began to sway many Croatians.



    During the civil war, the democratic resistance had promised the Cantabrians that after the war was over that they would be able to live in a free state of their own. The Kommunisticka partija disagreed.



    Industrially, Croatia was lacking. Only a few divisions could be trained and equipped at one time and so although many were called into service, most had to be sent home.



    A member of the partija who was a Geography Professor at Napo university, despite all the fighting of the past two years had spent much of his time mapping the nation with the latest techniques.



    Charles Ancatara was selected to be head of the armed forces at the front line level, he had got the job by walking into the wrong room while searching for a toilet on his first day as a personal secretary and had convinced successfully the panel of Generals and Colonels that he was the man for the job.



    The world around Croatia.



    Part of the Hawaiian islands also belonged to Croatia. No one can remember why or how apart from a mute hermit who insists he washed up there inside the belly of a dragon and only had the Croatian flag in his pocession. It is uncertain if he is believes this or not because his handwriting was so awful no one is sure what he had written apart from a few cryptographers who spent 5 years trying to deciepher the almost uniteligable scribbles.



    Nigeria proved to be far more able to produce divisions than what had been first believed by deploying 4 divisions two weeks before mine.



    The first three divisions of the Croatian Army since the disarmament of the rebel fighters a year earlier are officially brought into existance.



    The Armament minister decided that our industrial capabilities should be greater than what they were and ordered two new factories to be built.



    There was also an unexpected rise in the level of production which was welcomed.



    This was closely followed by improvements to the lay out and design of factory of machinary although the total effect was not noticable with Croatias tiny capability.



    Tensions grew with Nigeria when smugglers were caught taking materials across the border that broke the embargo.



    Realising that Nigeria was deploying troops far faster than expect it was decided that several divisions would be needed sooner rather than later. These men will eventually become true infantry men however these former rebels were handed guns and gotten back into shape. A fourth division was ordered soon after.

    If cantabria doesnt have any important province and dont split in half your coutnry, i reccomend you to release it (before 1937 better so they have the resources event). They will build a lot of militia for you. (base ic are always 5 wit basic resources). Also, the mod gives you a little bonus(leadership) for having a puppet and low WE.

    I could be wrong but it might have been used because there are city states like monacco so perhaps it might have been in the hope of that, you would have to ask the person who created the countries mod.
