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.
