Thread: Post your AHD Empire

  1. #841
    Below is the first 'serious' game I've played in Vic 2. It's not a particularly impressive attempt, but I am still learning the mechanics. At least I managed to industrialize without causing my economy to crash & burn, though those idiot capitalists certainly made a valiant effort to do so, what with their... artillery factory spam.



    My only other possessions are Johore (first conquest, purely for the precious metals) and Brunei. The latter was the result of me prowling around for oil in the early-mid aughts, and Brunei was the only unsphered, unallied unciv w/ oil that I could find. Later, an oil event did fire for Nejd's northern state a few years ago, and I quickly snatched it up.

    I westernized around, oh... 1873 or 1874. Could've done it around the turn of the decade, but I had somehow avoided getting sphered by that point, so I waited a few years in the vain hope that someone would sphere me. Half the GPs tried, but... well, they somehow got themselves into an influence stalemate, so I just went ahead and westernized anyway.



    Ranks higher because I saved, exited out, then realized I'd forgotten to take the above pic. When I loaded up said save, my rank had gone up. Guess I was tied with someone? Meh.

    Highest Rank I achieved was #9 in the 1910s, though only for a few months. At the time, a good chunk of my industry was based on automobiles and, to a lesser extent, aeroplanes. Then, my supply of rubber more or less stopped, causing a 1/3rd drop in my industrial score, as well as massive amounts of unemployment among craftsmen and clerks.


    World Map. Nothing weird, 'cept for the "Swedish Russian Empire" in northern Siberia.

    Hm, Argentina did take some pretty hefty chunks out of Bolivia and especially Brazil, didn't it? Yeah, I suppose that is pretty odd

    2. Only possible civilised target within reach (meaning not more than one or two regular brigades to fight against - i had only 5 or 6 irregulars at the time of that picture). I wanted another state so I could have more by the time I civilized. Atjeh could always be taken and converted later due to favourable population. Gold province states are nice for industrialising because they have such small RGOs. Also low value goods states (like Two Sicilies has), hence Christmas islands colonisation (it might not grow, but at least there's plenty of opportunity for some of the unemployed colonial javans).


    Dutch Asia, now with a bittersweet taste
    Very impressive.

    I can see that you're not a huge fan of clean borders, and let's ignore this monstrous campaign over france. Why didn't you sphere Bav Wur and Bad? Ok you'd have to compete with Austria (not like that's a big issue) but then you could at least diplo-annex Luxembourg. Why did you not do that?

    I'm planning on straightening my borders by creating Greater Germany and conquering the Baltic area. Unluckily by conquering parts of the Netherlands and Beglium 2 potential countries that could've taken Austrias GP spot were gone. Thats why I had to pick them apart even more :/

    Italy has cores there from the start, and you CAN force union countries to be released when its component states exist(see India, for instance)

    I don't think so. I think there have to be no countries with Italian primary culture left for you to release it.

    I've seen India released as only one city a couple of times. I don't know if Italy can be freed the same way.

    Still have to straighten some borders, but at least Austria is gone and France reduced to 20 brigades. Once my war exhaustion has gone down I will take care of both them and Russia.

    How are people posting screenshots of their entire world map?

    You upload a screenshot somewhere and then put it into these [IMG] [ /IMG ] brackets. (without the free space inbetween)
