MINOR FEATURES:

- Bug fixes:
- Changed portrait properties and fixed related bugs.
- Fixed issues related to religious head behavior and coronations.
- Fixed being able to keep forming Grand Bothnia indefinetely.
- Fixed Arctic invaders from spontaneously destroying themselves.

- Added house Dalton and an appropriate bloodline in an appropriate region.
- Added a couple historical great works.
- Added American culture and reassigned them some Jewish flavor.
- Equality between the sexes now properly implemented in Liberal and Svecoman merchant republics.
- Uusimaa is now a formable kingdom

MAJOR FEATURES:

- Starting setup changed in some areas, notably Lapland.
- Vantaa is still a s**thole, and unlike Espoo it does not deserve 7 holding slots.
- Added the Kallankarit, a small group of islands in Ostrobothnia with a unique history, complete with their own culture.

If you know about ATE:FF, you should have a clear idea about what this mod will be about. Much of their Q&A also applies to this mod.

DOWNLOADING THE MOD

Below are the main version of the mod and many submods used to make sure that DLC content works properly. They only work if you have the appropriate DLC. You can directly download the mod from these links or use the Steam Workshop link above.

Great work!
I have some question:
1.Is there any plan to expand the map?such as add Russia inland or Polish–Lithuanian?
2.Is it possible for us to see some Jan Mayen memes?

1. Expanding into Russia is for the most part against the current lore, and I don’t want to make the mod more Russia-centric. As a general rule, I don’t want to move the focus of the mod away from Finland, so no PLC area, sorry.
2. Jan Mayen is referenced. If you are in the Arctic coast, you can explore the Arctic Ocean and find different things.

I must try this out! I like the smaller scope. Hopefully, there are many regional references.

Liberals looks like the most boring religion ever. They might end up being my first playthrough.

Are Leningrad Cowboys a mercenary band?
Leningrad Cowboys as mercenaries sounds like a great idea, too bad that I don't have time to implement it for some time.

I think you should post the Dev Diaries, even the ancient ones, here as well, for us to see. Not all of us like to go to Reddit to read about the mod.

Thank god. I don't enjoy mods that had a regional scope but then decide to expand to include the vanilla map eventually(looking at you voltaire's nightmare)

This is awesome mod. Seriously thinking that I start playing kantele after hearing that starting theme over and over. I can't wait for future updates.

I have couple suggestions and questions about the lore.

1. Is the Evangelical in Pohjanmaa based on SLEY/Evankelinen herätysliike? I think that would be the least plausible revival movement to branch out from mainstream Lutheranism. I would suggest that there should be some sort of "orthodox/confessional lutheran" heresy instead of evangelicals, which would oppose veneration of St. Henrik and relics and oppose female clergy. Also maybe the order of St. Henrik should be changed to for example körtti/herännäis/awakening conventicles.

2. Instead of Ivalo(Avvil), Sami paganism should have the holy site in Inari(Aanar), Ukonkivi.

3.What is the story behind laestadian fingols? :D

4. Is there ideas to make event about pesäpallo(Finnish baseball) or Paavo Nurmi competition? Like in the After the end about baseball. Island arena in Vimpeli would be cool. Or harness racing track in Forssa.

Ck II doesn't have synchretism mechanism like EU IV? It would be cool for Karelianists to choose their syncretic faith between pagan and lutheran roots.

Anyway, awesome mod!
