Thread: Possible British surrender event?

  1. #1

    Possible British surrender event?

    I know I've talked about something like this before, but I was wondering how I would go about creating an event where the UK would switch governments and surrender. Something that would run checks against Axis control of the Home Islands and have a 10-30% chance of firing.

    The reason I ask is that, while I know there is a UK event, it seems to fire only after I have occupied all British territory with VPs anyway and even without any other majors in the Allies. In my current game as Germany, I have defeated or brought into the Axis all European nations (minus the historic neutrals, except Spain) and the US is NOT at war, though Japan is part of the Axis. Italy is south of the Equator in Africa with no enemies left in their path, Persia has been annexed and the panzers are about to spill into an empty India, Bitter Peace fired two months ago and the Kriegsmarine has uncontested control of the North Atlantic! Both Chinas beg for peace once a week as Japan gobbles the unprotected South Pacific!

    All this by January 1st, 1942!

    Does the UK simply never see the absolute hopelessness of the situation? The war is over. But now I have to send the Wehrmacht ALL THE WAY to Tarawa!

    An event where Hailfax becomes PM and sues for peace is well within the realms of historic plauseability. Besides, once the Home Islands fall the UK can't even maintain it's navy.

    Anyway. If anyone knows how I would go about starting this event, would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    Here is an event chain I use in my own scenario for British surrender.

    I was planning to add more lost provinces in India to the triggers and some other triggers too like war between Germany and UK, but those can be added and tweaked easily.

    Also, the event makes british give the Atlantic islands, and Newfoundland to USA and Canada.

    It also liberates several of the colonial nations, representing the colonies carrying on the fight. If you feel those are unnecessary, they too can be easily removed.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks! Both good ideas. I'll probably try the event on it's own before I install a bigger mod like SMEP, but I'll give it a try eventually!

    Why are the nations made puppets of the UK in event 50319? Germany will annex the UK anyway.

    Just got the British surrender event to fire in vanilla AoD with the conditions I listed earlier plus, duh, India! And what happens? They decide that "there is still hope!" Now why should THEY have any say about it?! Bah!

    Anyone know the percentage chance that they reject surrender? Thanks!

    I imagine any event like this should check if the USA is in the war. If they are... then it's pretty damn unlikely that there's going to be a surrender, since victory is, eventually, certain.

    With 653 IC, 245 divisions and a 200 relation status with the US (who has about 375 IC, at best) I think I can claim to be the first super-power and crush even them if they decide war was necessary. Lucky, they have been smarter than that!

    USA being at war is usually part of any major-power's surrender event.

    I have a buddy who plays as the US most of our games. He is how I've developed great anti-US strategies, military-alliance with only US and isolated-US plans. Nothing is more exciting than completing that massive encirclement of Soviet troops, linking up between Rommel and Patton just east of Moscow!

    Another game we were tossing nuclear-tipped ICBMs at Berlin and D.C. in '51. Now that was a game!

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, sir!

    Just finished the game where the Brits finally caved. They made peace, I invited them to join the Axis...and they promptly destroyed the former Dominions by 1944! Seriously! The UK AI on the Axis performed better than the Japanese AI! Captured the Dutch East Indies, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Newfoundland and a few other islands around the world in less than a year and a half!

    Germany hardly needed to provide support troops the British did so well! Even had to rush my invasion of Canada to beat them to that!

    So glad I got to have them as an ally instead of having to annex all that! Even helped me defeat china while Japan was stuck south of Behind since '37!

    As triggering the surrender events of UK and USA is almost as hard as annexing them the main reason for those events is to make them join germany.

    The UK surrender event only had a change of GOV and leaving the Allies. I had to spend about three months swaying UK relations until they were open to the idea (70% chance) of helping Hitler.

    But those were the only changes you needed, weren't they? The event gave you an extra of 2500 $ for making peace, that should be enough for better relations and bringing them into the axis. Still, annexing is probably more fun.

    5000 for peace. 2500 if you continue the war.

    I've turned the map grey so many times that I find my games more fun when I can have 200+ belligerence, dozens of allies who rule in my name effectively and still have perfect TC that facilitates my super-power style power projection. Having control of Scapa Flow and Plymouth allows me the feeling that the UK doesn't have much of a choice in any case.

    What does it take to make them surrender? I downloaded SMEP, did a Sealion, ended up giving NI, Scotland and Wales to Eire. A year later they still won't pack it in, now i've had a DoW from USSR and USA, i could really do with one less enemy right now..

    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 13
    	random = no
    	country = GER
    
    	name = EVT_13_NAME
    	desc = EVT_13_DESC
    	picture = "partition_of_england"
    	style = 0
    
    	trigger = {
    		OR = {
    			control = { province = 56 data = GER } #Paris
    			NOT = {
    				war = { country = FRA country = GER }
    			}
    		}
    		control = { province = 19 data = GER } #London
    		lost_VP = { country = ENG value = 75 }
    		lost_IC = { country = ENG value = 75 }
    		NOT = {
    			war = { country = USA country = GER }
    		}
    		NOT = {
    			war = { country = SOV country = GER }
    		}
    		random = 50
    	}
    
            date = { day = 0 month = january year = 1936 }
            offset = 10
    	deathdate = { day = 29 month = december year = 1963 }
    
    	action_a = {
    		ai_chance = 50
    		name = EVT_13_ACTA
    		command = { type = dissent value = -5 }
    		command = { type = end_mastery which = SCO }
    		command = { type = money value = 5000 }
    		command = { type = trigger which = 66 }
    	}
    	action_b = {
    		ai_chance = 50
    		name = EVT_13_ACTB
    		command = { type = dissent value = -2 }
    		command = { type = money value = 2500 }
    		command = { type = sleepevent which = 66 }
    	}
    }
    So you need 75% if their VP, need to lower their IC by 75% and you must not be at war with USA or the soviet union. I fear in term of this event you are screwed.

    SMEP may have made some changes. I quoted the event from AoD 1.08 Beta.

    Nations are made puppets of UK so that they join the Allies. It kind of represents the colonies continuing the fight after the mainland Britain has fallen. After UK is annexed, the colonial nations still remain in Allies.

    To be honest, i can't imagine the UK really fighting on to the occupation of the last overseas territory. If mainland UK falls, or has very nearly fallen (everything from London to Glasgow in Axis hands) most of the colonies are going to seize upon this moment of weakness to shake off the yoke of British rule and declare independence (and neutrality).

    If the UK and mainland France are occupied, and no other majors are fighting Germany, i can't even see Canada, Austrialia or New Zealand carrying on. They may not have any immediate fears of invasion, but they're hardly in a position to invade Germany, or liberate Britain/France by themselves. I'm imagining a kind of "bitter peace" event for the Alllies. Of course, should Germany go to war with another major these minors are almost certain to join up against the axis.

    British Navies and forces throughout the world will hardly lay down their arms just because London falls.
