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.
Also everyone has bisses. I have aswell. People need to first accept that they aren't perfect before they can become better. But that step often hurts. This is not meant to be a sub-post against anyone poster here.Also as I think it's been explained in the Arthrodira's post and afterwards about 5 times, this was never just about any person who doesn't like this DD. People just get extremely touchy and defensive when the question of biases is brought up even when it's about as explicitly not directed at them as possible.
I knew Arthrodira's original post was worded too strongly and would make people defensive by specifically saying racism and xenophobia. Should have just left it at Eurocentric imo. Shame since it basically amounted to "think about what your biases are before you inject them into your take".Also everyone has bisses. I have aswell.

How many movies, videogames, books, T.V shows, toys whatever have you ever seen about say for example Medieval Lithuania or Bulgaria?Would amend to Eurocentrism rather than Anglo-centrism
I am not talking about Paradox (although i could say the same about Paradox, example: just take a look at how the British Islands have twice as much province density as the Iberian peninsula in CK games, despite actually being sparser populated, more centralised and experiencing far less warfare) I was talking about about how media in general makes all of us place inherently more value in certain parts of the world than others. Which is why in the last couple of DD's people have complained about their lack of concern over these areas.and you also have to remember Paradox has a large fanbase in Europe itself and not just the Anglosphere.
Gameplay quality of these tags is one thing that we will known only after test the new patch.And because these tags are so isolated from the rest of the world, I don't see how this is exciting apart from the early game.
Africa can't be made right without a full DLC of content, the current DLC have a focus in SEA, Oceania logically should be updated like a small part of this DLC because SEA tags in Indonesia will probably interact with Oceania in the majority of their games.Hoe does this argument square with those who want to see more content for states that already exist, like say Ethiopia? There are large tags in Africa that have generic mission trees and have a lot more import on the game’s outcome (within and without Africa). Instead this new DLC is adding tags in an area of the world that had no demands on the game’s content before.
This is actually a VERY good argument on why the inclusion of these tags will enrich the game, more gameplay options for SEA tags (the core of this DLC) justifies their inclusion already in my opinion.Africa can't be made right without a full DLC of content, the current DLC have a focus in SEA, Oceania logically should be updated like a small part of this DLC because SEA tags in Indonesia will probably interact with Oceania in the majority of their games.
Oceania Expanded has twice the tags in New Zealand and I don't think that's too bad imo. Adds Iwis but also gives them something to do. Too few and you get "there's nothing to do but sit around until admin 5". This is a nice middle ground.a bit of flavor for that part of the world...
seven difefrent tags for new zealand , isn't that a bit too much?
Ad Infinitum apparently as directly telling people doesn't seem to prevent them from repeating the same line. They interpret the argument as if we're saying there's no opportunity cost decisions in regard to development when really it's just "hey this person you're talking to and what they're working on aren't preventing anything you're talking about from being done".How many time does it have to be explained, exactly, that content designers (and unpaid volunteer researchers) are NOT developers or programers, and that time they spend on new content is NOT time they might have otherwise spent on improving the game coding?
Judging by the number of "You should be fixing bugs instead" posts in this thread, apparently however many time it is, it's not enough.
