Here are some historical inaccuracies that should be and easily could be corrected in the west balkan region.
This time I will mainly focus on Croatia because Serbia and Montenegro are represented correctly and my suggestions on Bosnia were implemented
So our journey starts here:
I am very disappointed and sad to see the Dalmatian culture group remained after all my arguments proved it has no place on a map after the 12th century(at the latest).
I understand the flavor it adds and the work put into implementing the culture group ingame, but then you might as well put Hunnic or Avar culture in Hungary, Phoenician on the Tunis area or better yet a brand new Cro-Magnon culture group stretching from southern France across Spain to Morroco-_-
- in the 1356. start date Venice owns this province, this is very inaccurate because the expansion of Venice from owning the islands and coastal cities exclusively to moving inland was a result from their wars with the Ottoman empire which took the lands a couple of centuries later.
-Dalmatian culture?! Not only was the area represented in the province always a slavic majority the second they came there in the 7th century, but Sibenik itself was founded by a slavic population during the kingdom of Croatia(current opinions points to the reign of Kresimir IV)
-The name and capital of this province should absolutely be changed. It never had any importance to be worthy of a province capital. Bribir was the most important city in the province until 1322. the battle of Bliska. After that almost the entire province comes into direct control of the Nelipac family(their absolute rule over the province lasted until 1436.) which became very powerful after the decline of the Subic family. Their most important town, military fortress and feudal capital was Knin so i believe that the name of the province and the capital should definitely be Knin as it remained the most important fortress even after the decline of the mentioned family because the only road connecting the Dalmatian coast to Lika, and central-northern Croatia went through the city and the parallel roads went very near it.
-This is represented correctly with the Hungarian culture and ownership, but what i do not understand is why is the provinces slavic name used instead of the Hungarian version like the other Hungarian provinces.
In case you eventualy cave in and remove the Dalmatian culture, these are the Slavic names that should be used:
Zara = Zadar, maybe Primorje
Spalato = Split
Ragusa = Dubrovnik(mentioned as such 1189. by Bosnian ban Kulin, 1215. by Serbian Zhupan Stephan and after that most slavic-origin documents refer to the city using that name)
That is all for now
BTW, thank you for the hard work you put in this mod, it is truly the best EU experience to date
I just noticed you put a culture change to Croatian after 1358. Zadar peace. I find this interesting because if I start with the 1356. start date Venice always keeps the provinces so i do not understand the reason behind this.
