Hi all, in the run up to EU4 I have actually managed to get a day off work! and I definitely plan to go ahead with D&T for EU4. However, building a mod from scratch is absurdly difficult, so I'll need your help *obligatory your country needs you banner here*. I need volunteers who will be able to chat with the main design team (Presumably myself, Sun_wu and one or two other experienced modders) on Skype and produce events and decisions live in the 48 hours after the mod is released. Basically, I want to create a community mod which you can leave your mark on. The main thing, which almost anyone can mod, is adding the new ideas for smaller nations. Paradox only added custom ones to the major nations, so that's a great starting point. There's also creating new countries (eg the Roman Empire) and other basic stuff which is already in D&T for EU3. Please let us know here if you're interested in working with us. We'll assign each volunteer to one person, (me, sun_wu etc.) and you guys will all work on a different aspect of the mod. We hope to have a fairly successful mod created within a day or two!
This is really ambitious, so I *really* need your help. Please register your interest here, making sure to include your Skype name, modding experience (none is absolutely fine! we'll show you how to do some of the easier stuff using screen sharing on Skype, or we can just milk your suggestions!) and how long you should be free for in the first two days after the mod is released.
Finally, any ideas for the mod based on what you saw in the Dev Diaries would be appreciated too, so feel free to post it below. Also, please let us know what you think of the idea of building a community mod.
Thanks again, you guys are awesome and this totally won't be possible without you.
PS Other skills are also welcome, we need people who are interested in designing a user guide for us.
