How's the space on your hard drive? Paradox wants to challenge your galaxy brain with a great selection of space exploration games - and they're all on sale for some very down-to-earth prices! The sale runs from May 4th until May 10th at 17:00 CEST / 08:00 PDT.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
I really am looking forward to this change. It creates a much more realistic mobolization system, this should really constain a nation's peace time armies. Will I build a navy, fleet, or armored corps? Will I build a little of everything? This will really change how I play the game!
That 4,5% figure seems wrong indeed. It would mean 4.500.000 men for a country of 100 million, and that's 4.500 MP which is massive even by Soviet Union's standards, as it's just for moving from one-year to two-year conscription.
4,5% for one year means that the cohort of, let's say, 20 to 21 years old (assuming one-year conscription applied for people who were 19 years old) amounts for 4,5% of the total population. Therefore the total population would be concentrated in a little more than 20 years, ie., 100/4,5 = 22.22. Of course there's something called premature mortality, but that actually increases the problem: if the 20 years old represent 4,5% of population, younger people would represent even bigger percentages. It doesn't add up, or am I missing something?
And to another related thing. Don't know whether you are still doing research in the conscription polices of each nation, but in Spain it was one year under the Republic and two years under Franco.
3. With normal conscription you enlist a class of age for one year. We saw a class of age was about 0.75% of a country’s population, but only a part of it is actually mustered in. The rest is postponed, upheld, unfit for service, sent to auxiliary service, and we must also deduce the men who are affected to purely administrative tasks. According to data about the French military service in the mid 30’s, I found the following result: on-map MP x 4.0.
On-map MP represents 1/1.000.000 of total population, four times that amount represents 4/1.000.000, of course. In my 100 million country example, you'd have 400 MP, so 400.000 more conscripts for one year, or 0.4% of the total population. So the first post possibly meant 0.45% instead of 4.5%, which sounds much more plausible.
A country which is not already at war cannot go to General Mobilization, but only Partial Mobilization. I am quite sure that what Germany did in August 1939 can be modeled by what we called "Partial Mobilization" (classes that had just accomplished their military service term are recalled under the flag, [..] some reserve units are activated, reservists are sometimes called back too.).Does this specific situations include Poland 1939 campaign? afaik germany was fully mobilized by the end of august
You're probably right, I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to do the math and check if I was giving the right number, sorry.On-map MP represents 1/1.000.000 of total population, four times that amount represents 4/1.000.000, of course. In my 100 million country example, you'd have 400 MP, so 400.000 more conscripts for one year, or 0.4% of the total population. So the first post possibly meant 0.45% instead of 4.5%, which sounds much more plausible.
The 400 MP are the result of simply changing from one-year conscription (level 4) to two-years conscription (level 5). Mobilizing the country would get a few more men, let me reassure you.If a one hundred million pop country is able to raise a pitiful 40 divisions WITHOUT anything left for reinforcements, wow. That's harsh.
