As i said in the previous post, 1444 levels as of right now are a huge problem because they are extremely biased towards North America and the eastern seaboard. which also doesnt have any of the nasty, nasty maluses and large, unwieldy provinces like South America does. I cannot stress enough how much in terms of gameplay the low dev and tropical malus affect South America negatively.Note that I was talking - specifically - about the idea of adding development to match 1444 levels.
On the idea of developing the South American nation: I'd be for it, but I have little power to do it myself, because I lack the awareness and personal interest to do it as a passion project in my free time, and that's all the ability I have to affect what gets developed. I hope Paradox does it, or another person on staff takes it on as a passion project, but yeah.
And as mentioned in my first post in the thread, and this is more for other readers than Evie, dont hold your breath. Paradox sure has come a long way in its portrayal of North America, Asia and Africa (even if the latter still has the term ''fetishism'' being used in EU4... but that's a story for another time and thread) but South America remains in the shadow, and will remain for the time being since fundamentally it's just never a focus, or something remotely important, in any expansion, content pack, patch and so forth, getting just some scraps off the table. To be quite honest, i dont expect anything at all before EU5. And i know that isnt that near at all.
Yeah, that was the endonym i was referring to. Wasnt really confident in typing it correctly, but its most certainly better than Tarascan, and more accurate too, since it more properly reflects that the state was a political entity centered around that city. There are other tags where this is an issue ( Tapuia means ''Enemy'', Sioux means ''Snake'', Cheyenne is a Lakota exonym for two tribes that didnt merge until the 1820s, and so on and so forth ) but i feel like this is a especially easy to deal with case since it has both an endyonym for the culture and one for the state, but also a slightly less bad exonym in Michoacán.I mean, at that point if we're not using a recognizable English name, we might as well go for the original article. Tzintzuntzan is really growing on me.
Besides which, if we can have Galicia-Volhynia (and, as of this overhaul, Attigneenongnahac*), I'm sure the players can handle Tzintzuntzan.
*Fun fact: I've had to spell that one so often in the past week or so working on the overhaul that I can actually write it from memory at this point.
