    It's a Russian (soviet) tank rolling in vienna.

    If I'm not mistaken then I think it takes place in line of sight of the Hofburg, the former Palace of the Austrian Emperors

    Why not Zulu Red Barons throwing flaming spears at Mexican Hindenburgs to win a decisive battle over the coast of swedish northern-Siberia.

    Imagine that rolling into Vienna...

    Berlin was the last free province left of the once mighty Anarcho-liberal German Empire after it was divided between United Soviet States of Scandinavia and Fascist Russia in the IKEA-Vodka pact of 1915.

    Surely the most iconic image for Victoria 2 would be the event that happens immediately upon unpausing at the start of every single game: Austrians rampaging into Denmark.

    Though Imperial Mexican flags flying in the background while they build the Golden Gate bridge would also be great. U.S.A.: "Mani-what Desti-who?" Mexico: "No es nada, amigo." *proceeds to own west coast forever*

    A better one for A House Divided specifically would be Union and Confederate forces fighting each other with tanks and planes during the 57th American Restoration of Order to the Confederate Provinces.

    While the first one is cool, that would require the AI to actually get around to gobbling up Hawaii.

    The Mexico one is gold, though. Mexico is usually a funky wild card in the unending ordeal of Victoria 2's War Between the States. Their tendency to get swamped in black and red flags makes them an easy way to get war score for the other side when they decide to go meddling.

    Nice wallpaper!

    I'll throw my outlandish suggestion for a future one into the ring: King Kalākaua of Hawaii leading troops against invading Japanese or Russians outside Iolani Palace

    Or a Roosevelt/Bismarck boxing match in the middle of a raging battle.
    For first he was faultless in his senses; and his five fingers never failed him; and all his trust on earth was upon the five wounds that Christ bare upon the cross. And whenever this knight found himself in stress of battle he deemed well that he drew his strength from the five joys which the Queen of Heaven had of her Child. And the fifth five that the hero used were frankness and fellowship above all, purity and courtesy that never failed him, and compassion that surpasses all; and in these five virtues was that hero wrapped and clothed.

    A picture of the Ottomans finally capturing Vienna in the 19th century would be nice.
    Or, if that's too unplausible, a picture of the French army running away from an attack of the infamous Luxembourgers (yes, all three of them).

    I'd like to see Icelandic communists tearing down the old flag and putting up the new one in front of a large crowd.

    I am pretty sure those two would fight with swords. Roosevelt was a cavalry man and Bismarck was fairly famous for his duals.

    And the tweaked diplomacy AI. It's on of the few things that still really bug me in the game.

    was tweaking this yesterday. stuff like more logical white peaces etc. Honestly its bug fixes so I wasnt going to talk about it in any diary, but I guess I can do a summary in the last one over some of the ai challenges.
