  1. #21
    Italy sucked during WWII - they couldn't even beat Greece. A weak Italy is a historical Italy
    Poor Hungary, so far from God and so close to Germany, in WiR 1900. Was great while it lasted, Hungary was on the verge of invading Slovakia, to save the Slovak-speaking Hungarians from Czech yoke! --- The Communist Rebels in aEoH, defeated by malicious dice.
    Kadarist Hungary, willing to give goulash and to free the homeland, in WiR 1953. Died due to lack of interest --- God-Emperor-GM of Asia, and also King of Numidia in Dictators, Diadochi and Despotes. Died due to to lack of time/commitment.
    All the moniez are mine in WiR 1756 as the Dutch Republic I killed the game, but with style. --- Mr House in War Never Changes. Schemes and robots everywhere! --- Kingdom of Dale in Lord without Rings.Died early too
    Kingdom of Romania and Duchy of Moesia in WiR 1815 Died due to lack of time ---The roaring Republic of China in WiR 1901. Due due to lack of organization.
    Celestine II true Orsini Pope and living Saint in Saint Peter's Throne. Also, writing eschatological texts in Olde English. Fun fun. --- The Glorious Islamic Republic of Iran in WiR 1991. Died due to sarin gas.
    France in the stillborn 1836, where the house of Orleans shows the world what bourgeois liberalism means. --- Pious, proud and unmatched Sparta in CoO.
    France in 1920. We shall win because we are the strongest!
    --- Liege, tiny torch of liberty in the Lowlands in WiR 1789 --- Hungary, proud, free at last and immensely rich in WiR 1640

    That's kind of what I said. I'm hoping that the Italy patch changes don't ruin the historicity of it - after all, the Italian armies in 1940-41 Libya and Ethiopia did just get plain walked over by much smaller numbers of British and Commonwealth troops.

    I disagree with you, because the war was conducted in a superficial manner and with much dispersion of resources and men, when the war with Greece starts the Italian army, was in a state of partial demobilization, decided by Mussolini. The initial attack plan of Greece dated 1939, envisaged a force of 15-18 divisions but the true attack was conducted with 6 division at all. The industrial capacity was not used at it's full, for the entire duration of the war and was focused much for the infantry. For example the production of infantry weapons was 125000 machine guns, 10000 20mm anti aircraft weapon and 16800 mortars. The production of tanks was very similiar to Japan for quantity, but Japan in game has 90IC while Italy only 61, and it's extremily difficult for human player to archieve some success. I think that a slighty increse of IC for both Japan and Italy is a solution.

    Italy and France suffer from the same problem

    Historically, based on OoBs and what-if scenarii, they were major powers, roughly on par with the UK or Japan.
    Historically, based on doctrines, political leadership, willingness to fight and historical outcomes, they were second division players on par with Poland

    Modelling these in a game engine is hard, though it might be doable with some national ideas and slight engine editing (pre-Vichy France and Italy should have a base 10% dissent penalty stacked on any dissent they currently get above 0%, their dissent should never go below this line).
