I publish this little mod, which I used in several MP-games with a friend. I added some events and decisions regarding the so-called “Vormärz” in Germany before the March Revolution in 1848.
My goal was not a historical-deterministic variant, but to create some more flavour. The events will not change much and are not game-changing or –breaking, they don’t add more consciousness or liberal percent than the regular “Liberal Revolution” ones. But I wanted to give everything a more personal, historical face, not a generic one.
My approach is the following: it is nice to have some historical notifications. Why does Britain gain for everything prestige, what is with the other nations? Isn’t it just fine to get some prestige score or research points? Why is Carroll’s “Alice” so important, but not Manzoni’s “Promessi sposi” or Heine’s “Wintermärchen”? Why only Wagner, what is with the other composers?
Victoria has a splendid atmosphere, when it comes to that point. I want to enrich and enlarge it. Because of that, I began with German flavour events, because they seem to be the most difficult (many states, and a cultural boom in the 19th century). Please notice, that I have in mind to extend this mod, but because of my RL, I have sometimes much freedom to work on it, and other times I am forced to be away for months.
But I’m looking forward to extend it every time a bit. This time it is the “Vormärz”, but it will be more. At least, I want do the same for Italy.
The events have high ID numbers, in hopes that this little collection may work with other mods. Feel free to use the files. Ah, and a last thing: English localisation only.
PS: I tried every event and decision and they should work fine. However, this is my first (published) mod, and there may be
dragonserrors. So, please don’t be too harsh with a humble little exiled Venetian, and contact me if something is wrong.
- 50 historical events regarding Germany: music, literature, political und social events like the protest of the Göttingen Seven, the first Beethoven festival, the construction of Cologne cathedral and the Weavers' uprising in the 'Vormärz' period (until ca. 1850)
- more accuracy of the historical states in Germany. Baden, Hesse-Kassel and Württemberg were rather liberal, Bavaria and others had a constitution and landed voting.
- some decisions for German states

Frankfurt: Goethe monument
Württemberg: Schiller monument
Bavaria: Maximilianstraße and Neuschwanstein
Baden: Reintroduction of the free press
Prussia: Cologne cathedral
Heligoland: If Britain has good relations with Germany, it secedes Heligoland
Gruenderzeit: The decision is available for every germanic state, but has not the same benefits as the austrian (only 3 life_rating for the capital )
Museum: Every nation, that has the 'excavation-modifier' can build a museum in the capital.
Yeah, I like pictures.
Attempted for more accuracy and changed some German states from absolute to constitutional monarchy. Baden, Württemberg and Hesse-Kassel were among the more liberal states, Bavaria and some other had at least landed voting. The city states are now democracies, but only with weighted wealth.
Venetian government names.
Hanover has not to be in the British sphere of influence, if the 'Victoria-coronation-event' should fire.
Prussian blue for Prussia.
Not much. Only the change from "Prussian constitutionalism" to "Constitutional Monarchy". You can delete the "text" file, if you want.
The standard edition was expanded with the "Koldewey" update, expanding archaeology.
The next expansion was "Restaurazione", the italian counterpart to "Vormärz". It expands heavily on Italian culture and the Risorgimento, with events reaching from the "Canto degli Italiai" (National anthem) to Italian interwar aviation. Please keep in mind that some events, like the First Italian War of Independence, are only occuring in the APD-Mod download!

Important note: This mod works with APD 3.2.5; the next update will be made for POD.
