Super cool! Hey, I'm an avid played of both CK3 and CS, and I'm also postdoc researcher who works on pre-history of the Pacific. Is there any chance you'd include more of Remote Oceania, or even all of Oceania? Popular media is already so fascinated with Polynesia, and New Caledonia, Solomons, Vanuatu etc tend to not get much love. Polynesia is already very hyped and sometimes fetished, especially in the US. It'd be fun to see more of Oceania represented for once :)

I know historians and people from the Pacific who may be able to contribute more information if you need.

Jag råkar också vara svensk, men jag antar att dom flesta devs inte är svenskar?

One of the reason part of the community is against the inclusion of pacific natives as playable states is due to their historical maritime inactivity in this period, how will this be addressed? It would be a bit immersion breaking to see Maori ships in SEA.
I am an academic working on the Pacific. I'm not sure I understand. We know that people in the Pacific maintaining long-distance sailing throughout history. I'm not sure exactly what time frame this expansion is working from, but I doubt there is that much of a lull.

Also, I play CK3 a lot and my immersion isn't broken when my Mongolian ruler in the Caucasus gets aid from her ally in southern India, even though I doubt that's very plausible historically. I don't play EU, but it doesn't strike me as that different.

Different folks different strokes, but I don't think this is a valid argument.

I think the Tsou tribe would be a nice catch
