    Death and Taxes for EU4 MEGATHREAD!



    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.

    Don't worry, we're only IMing, not chatting/video-ing.

    I'll help out, even if my experience = 0 in modding. Still I'll do whatever I can, and I might even pick up something new I think I will be available most of the time after release, but I am not completely sure. Things might change.

    My skype name is the same as my username here

    I haven't really tried to make a mod myself (or well, not seriously anyways :P), but I can read and understand the files just fine, and I often go through the files if there's something I want to check or edit a bit.

    I should be available to help around launch.
    Got some decent EU3 modding experience/knowledge.

    It seems to me that with new overextension setup, rewarding cores on missions should now be much rarer.
    I'd like to see the monarch points being the new base for mission rewards. Conquest giving some military points. Trade & Diplo missions giving Diplo points and so on. Admin points due to their higher value shouldn't be handed out as much.

    I am planning to do quite a lot of work on missions for my own use anyway, I'm under the impression these still pretty much work as in EU3. Sure choosing 1 out 3 missions will help a lot, but except a few national missions that are usually OP, most generic mission IMO was not fun/rewarding tasks to do.

    Don't you need to play vanilla version first to see what there is and isn't before you can start improving upon stuff??
    I would think it would be possible to port an EU3 map to EU4. I might suggest MEIOU map if you can get permission.

    I'm not expecting to port stuff, more likely we're going to build the mod from scratch, although of course we'll keep any good ideas from EU3!

    D&T is one of my favourite mods, I would like to help too, even if my help will be a bit limited (but I'm fully free at the release). (Skype: dirkmyron)

    One of the first things you should focus on is probably having more religions in the world of EU4 like in EU3 version, those Animism and Shamanism block are looking bad.

    I'd be more than willing to help, though I've close to 0 experience when it comes to modding.

    Skype: Irwin.the.boognish

    On a side note, have you guys thought about recording the timezones of the volunteers? Assigning folks in EU timezones to an EU D&T overlord, or NA ones to an NA overlord might allow for better group-work to be accomplished. Just a thought.

    I'm not sleeping And we're just gonna work with whoever's online in skype at the time, presumably you'll be offline if it's a bad time for you.

    Considering the DD about Japan, I hope they needs no further tweak.

    I'd like to aid in the development of the mod for EU IV. I've wasted countless hours on it and would like to waste more on EU IV.

    Skype name: apiks_

    My modding knowledge is about 3/9-10 so I do have some but not a lot. I hope I can help in any way possible. I should be free at any time during the first few days of the release of Eu IV.

    I'm afraid I don't have EU4 preördered yet, but I plan to do so soon. I'd like to help with that "User Guide" that you mentioned though, if there's any way that I can do so. If you need someone to go through and do repetitive textfile edits, I'm your gal. Modding experience with EU3 is 1/10 (I edited a savegame file once to change the cassus belli for a particular war since I clicked the wrong button and only discovered this when I was getting 20 infamy or so for taking what should have given me 4).

    If you think I can still help you, kaiwren107 is my Skype.
