Hi ya. I'm Thai and I just want to say Thai. The Northern Thais are not Siamese. I'm half northern myself and they would call themselves "Khon Muang" rather than "Thai" (a Siamese version of Tai). Just my humble opinion
It's something I thought about for a while and I might still change my mind. The goal here was to strengthen both Ayutthaya and Lan Na by making their culture more extensive, but I appreciate that people in Northern Thailand have a different ethnic identity.Hi ya.

I got a lot of good information from articles published in the Journal of the Siam Society. I recommend 'PIRACY, SMUGGLING, AND TRADE IN THE RISE OF PATANI, 1490-1600' by Francis R. Bradley for example. I also trawled JSTOR for anything interesting using the names of nations from the period as keywords.
Completely agree. No idea why every state has to have limited provinces. States like West/East Burgundy, West/East Sicily are both historically non-existent and practically cringy. 4-6 provinces in a state sounds like a fair number.Given that so many new provinces get added each update, and areas are becoming increasingly excessive in number.
Would it not be better to change the amount of provinces in one area? Currently the aim seems to be for 3-5 provinces in 1 area.
I think it ought to be 4-6 unless its something like the baleares or other areas that represent a couple of islands.
As currently many areas are getting a treatment of hyphenated names, west/east, north/south and while the governing capacity sorta solved this problem, state maintanence and edict spamming is still a thing.
Can't talk specifically about production plans, but I won't be the only one working on 1.31.
Hope to see some new unit packs coming along.Next week we’ll take a similar look at Maritime SEA - modern Indonesia and Malaysia. In terms of scripted content you can expect plenty of historical events, mission trees, disasters, government reforms, estate privileges, and more from the 1.31 update. We’ll get to these in later weeks, but for now that’s all I have to say. Until next time, have a good week!
