In the Poland/Austria/Hungary border provinces there are several duplicate ids, it looks like the Danube region is a bit moved to far to the north and east. I tried to redo the area but it caused me headaches. I hope our province masters kokomo and G-Klav can do it better :)
Like I said before... European geography never seemed to be my strongest, so I'd rather leave this area of the world onto another... :) :p

Chaingun... any idea where should I focus then??? what about Persia???

What I say is that while it is good if historical accuracy is achieved, I think the link between land areas is even more important. The more we can make a player's Victoria country remind him of his EU2 one the better.
I agree here. I think the important thing here lies more on remind you that if you had province "X" in EU2 you would still have province "X" in Victoria, even if it lies geographically speaking northern let's say

Ah, I just thought I should point out that the tag KUT (Kutch) is more akin to GUJ (Gujarat) than anything else. And the Khazaks revolt in central asia, not north india.

Don't worry When I tried it myself I got mightily confused what to put where.

Persia, Russia, The steppe area and Siberia are not covered yet I believe.

Ughh I started up my computer to get some work done, but due to last minute parental insistance I have to go and buy some stuff before I can correct the IDs. :/ I shall never live in another family once I leave home; living with other people simply ruins my planning. :rofl:

Did anyone of you rework Germany? I'm in a rush again (dinner) so I can't check right now. Saxony, Baden, Würtemberg and other minors look horrible. Some of these are fixable, others are not. Saxony should be at least since it right now does not resemble EU2 territory in any way. Additionally I noticed some errors that you might have corrected or not. That is Chur 823 is double owned, and Ulm 804 + Plzen 761 don't appear to have any owners.

EDIT: I noticed you did rework Southern Germany. I'm off to eat.

I also noticed we will have to disable the Ottoman Empire until we get the Middle East converted. When I tried to convert the 1419 scenario it crashed because the capital of OE lay not in Thrace but in some other Middle East province whatever it is called.

Shortly after dinner I shall upload a new version with all new additions included as well as fixes to the aforementioned problems (I'll see whether Germany was reworked, if not I'll still fix the basic errors).

this is strange.... Isn't it Constantinople's ID in Victoria # 971 which relates to EU2 #357???

well its always nice when this forum shows the message of the server being to busy to send my pervios(long) message

anyway. the propem whit the convertion will be the amount of country tags needet. you haveto understand that somebody who is goingto convert the game from eu to victoria will moslikely have already converted the game from crusaiders to eu and maby this person has managed to actiodentaly saved the tribe of cumans or the tribe of livonia as an independant pagan nation. the amount of contrytags you would needto add into victoria will be hudge

this is strange.... Isn't it Constantinople's ID in Victoria # 971 which relates to EU2 #357???
maby the fact that the city is later named istanbul will screw up something

Hi.... I don't think so. The important thing here is the # of province more than the name itself. What we have learnt is that if in EU the capital of the nation was located in province 9999 ,for example, then when you convert it to Victoria you have to respect that and cannot assign it to someplace else.
You'll have another # for Victoria of course, let's say 2222, but 2222 has to be the capital in Victoria as well.

The problem is Constantinople is not the capital in the 1419 scenario as it wasn't conquered until ~1453 if my memory serves me correct. It will get fixed however once the Middle East IDs are converted, so there is no reason to either worry or discuss this issue further.

Well I PMed Dark Knight since he was first in the list of moderators... I have no idea who'd be an administrator (does it say anywhere?)

You are RIGHT!!!! How do we solve the problem of having one capital in EU2 and one in Victoria? Which should we stick to?

This doesn't really cause a problem as long as the EU2 province holding the strange capital is converted - which I expect all provinces to be when this project finishes.

Baden and Würtemberg look MUCH better with the latest changes (I'll check the Palatinate later too). Saxony still looks incredibly screwed though, I'll attempt to fix it myself before I upload the new version.

So, now the new version is ready. It includes all new IDs (tell me if I've missed anything), and Ironfoundersson's latest country additions. It also includes a fixed (that is less retard) Central Germany. Download below:

Eu2Vic.zip

Comment on Germany: Due to its very different borders and many provinces I agree it is probably the hardest area to convert if you got no geographical knowledge of the region. I have a little, and so I have attempted to edit the most disturbing features of the old ID setup. Among them (as you've heard in my examples) the most ugly one was Saxony. The core of the problem is that EU2 Saxony-Anhalt is way too far west than it really is, and to get a somewhat better looking option I decided to ignore the fact Würzburg will now cut into EU2 Anhalt as I perceive it as much more realistic. Below is a picture of the transformed Saxony, and I can assure many empty areas in Germany have been changed as well (most notably Hessen-Mainz-Pfalz-Würzburg):



I have a new question regarding realism and such. I realized I could just make EU2 Anhalt come true now in terms of country size, but that would be at the expense of Würzburg. I would just make what is currently Saxony and Anhalt into Saxony, and then build Anhalt out of some other provines (Erfurt, Göttlingen, Kassel and Gotha primarily). Sadly, the EU2 capital city of Würzburg (Erfurt) would lie inside Anhalt, and Anhalt's EU2 capital of Weimar would lie inside Saxony. This has no sense when it comes to realism, but it would make the land areas a bit better from a viewpoint. What would you prefer, a much more realistic Germany or a more EU2ish Anhalt territorial area?

As for the Castille-Spain-Aragon->Spain thing it all depends on the programming I can do. I admit it would be practical, but then again there are other problems since for example Castille and Aragon are likely to co-exist if they by event did not unite into Spain.
Could be justified by the 15 years between the end of EU2 and the start of victoria :)

I think this is the best solution.

(but i'm not really ok with your exemple : i think EU2's "Aragon" (ARG) should be converted in Victoria's "Catalonia" (CAT) ).
