I'm looking to get into playing some EU3.
I have the EU3 Chronicles edition only, so I can't easily play mods that require In Nominee only.
I am relatively new to the game.
What is the best version of Divine Wind to use?
I only play single player. I'm mostly concerned with having a solid, consistent AI development that maintains a feel of historical plausibility.
Powerful Ottoman empire, Hordes that get colonized by Russians, not Bohemians and Poles, Spain that only rarely owns all of North Africa, etc.
Supposedly, 5.1 has some major problems in this regard, hence the creation of 5.2. Weak Ottomons, horde problems, central Europeans snaking to Siberia, etc. But the current betas of 5.2 are very much works in progress, as they are working on balancing the newly reduced manpower and the current build has major problems.
So I was thinking about using the April 20th beta of 5.2. That's the version before they started working on the manpower issue and the comments thread doesn't note many problems.
Would it be best to use 5.1? Or the April 20th build of 5.2?
Or would it be best to jump straight to using some mod?
