Thread: The Yellow-Pie-Mystery

  1. #1

    The Yellow-Pie-Mystery

    Playing Japan in Victoria II (v1.4b) I experienced a Pie-Chart in the Budget-Screen for Aristocrats, which is totally yellow ("Lifeneeds partly fulfilled") more or less from the very beginning. Zero Tariffs doesn't help. But when I switch to the POP-Screen there are a lot of Aristocrats without problems: for most of them each Glass is full. I can't see, how the Glasses and the Pie-Chart are related.
    Could someone explain that to me? Thank you in advance!

    Hover over the glass and you will see what it missing. It looks full but it isn't. Almost certainly they can't get coffee or tobacco or both. The world is heavily undersupplied for those commodities in the latest beta and the UK will swallow the lot that gets onto the market. You have to get your own supplies, and avoid being sphered, or you won't get any.

    Thank you! You are right: it's the tobacco.

    I experience this yellow Pie-Chart-Problem since the 1.4b-Patch.

    Hmmm, so this game suggests "people can never be really happy without a good cigarette"?

    Maybe Paradox is just a proxy, a sock puppet, a satellite, a spherling, with the evil tobacco industry looming in the dark background?

    That frightens me!

    As a smoker, I approve this message.

    Surely you don't really believe that?
    Maybe it's just a coincidence?
    Only a very cynical person would suggest such a thing!
    Krautkopf, this makes me sad.
    Evidently you should apologise

    I feel somebody is trying to lower my consciousness...
    ...must... resist...

    But then, there is this blood-written message at my doorstep... and those men in black following me...aaaaaaargh!

    Ok, I apologise!


    (Anybody got a cigarette for me?)

    Nahhh. Before tabacco it was the liquor. Itīs clearly an evil conspiracy against the public.

    But surely more Liquor and Tobacco can only be a good thing!? Also, consider the US attempt at Prohibition, which falls within this timeframe. Brought the country to near-anarchy.

    It gets worse. These are life needs, so the message they are sending is: not smoking = starvation
    Imperium 1.4 (Mod for Victoria II)

    Austria: efficient like the Germans, musical like the Italians and refined like the French.

    That is actually rather suggestive... Tobacco should be a luxury need.

    Not so. In today's context, yes, but during the Industrial revolution the common man could and did take his access to Alcohol and Tobacco for granted. Like I said, look at Prohibition.
