Also do not forget the Byzantine empire openly turned Catholic. Although that was when they had one province and the ottomans were breathing down there neck so in a desperate attempt to get support they turned catholic at the request of Papacy. Oh and no one ending up sending much of anything to save them in the end
Oh, please. "Openly turned". They had to flirt with the Papacy for centuries. Michael VIII ruthlessly enforced a union for a decade because he was afraid of the crusade directed at him. It does not mean the society and the clergy embraced Catholicism. (In the end his grateful subjects denied him a proper Christian burial and the union was repudiated immediately following his death.) Let us not confuse political declaration with actual state of affairs. "Better the Turkish turban than the papal tiara".

CKII Project Oikoumene: Orthodox and Near Eastern Compilation
Join the effort to assemble and compile flavor and gameplay enhancements to flesh out Byzantium, the Balkans, Rus, the Steppe, the Caucasus and the Near East in one package.
yes. I fully agree with you on that.
It is actually more of an insult then anything by the pope. The roman Empire destroyed by one of the very things they nurtured.
I don't think you need to be Orthodox to form Greece in the game.
I had a very fun game playing a one province zoroastrian persia in northern Iran once, and then rebulding an empire from it. I'd like to do that again but I dont like that the game wont allow at 1399 start time
I like the late medivial period moreso then early modern age.
I hope to play as Venice.
Back in eu2 I played Venice a lot

To form Greece in the mod, one must be Greek (duh) AND Athens, Morea, Achaea, or Naxos. Cyprus cannot technically do it, though in the folder if you were to simply add the tag in the decision folder. You could also do something similar with the Knights as a Greek state.
I'd like to see a 'Re-form the Latin Empire' option as a country in the Crusader quest group. It would be neat, and quite a challenge.

But it was also stated that deliberate cultural shift (of the country's main culture) is going to be harder, if at all possible.
Gonna play as austria and then form Germany so the evil prussians don't do it =)
