Is there any hope on the suggestion that we can also modify how a Custom Nation takes Idea Groups? Give them Castile's historical idea's (Exploration first) or France's (Economy first) when setting up a Custom Nation for an AI?

Most important thing there: they've changed the color of Aq Qoyunlu, Qara Qoyunlu, Tabarestan, Shirvan and Nogay.
Aq Qoyunlu is now navy, Qara Qoyunlu is Prussian blue :laugh:, Nogay is a dark teal and Shirvan is an awesome gold. Tabarestan is skin-colored, it seems.

Paradox, quick question: why don't you plop down a blue or gray or something other than reddish hues in Central Europe? Those colors wouldn't conflict with anything significant in the region. I vote for Wallachia or Moldavia or Serbia to get them :)

With Ottomans on the west and potential Persia on the east, thank god they changed Qara ... imagine a multiplayer game where you have Ottos, Qara still living (somehow), Persia and formed Hindustan .. JUST TOO MUCH GREEN :D

Hmm, from what I've seen tech cost reduction lvl 4 is really expensive. I wonder whether it's possible to cram Muscovy-like NIs into such a limited pool (200), given how you'd also need core creation cost bonus and a colonist, both of which will be obviously expensive as well. And that's with me being fine with OPM start.

Watch this:

Moldavia next to Qara Qoyunlu. Kaffa defected to me, Abkhazia (east of Kaffa) was theirs.
We literally had the same color. I couldn't let that pass:

It's still not clear to me whether you can type in custom names for your starting ruler and heir, or whether you just have to click that die to get a random one from your culture.

Also, someone else already mentioned this in the other Nation Designer thread, but there should be a way to designate whether your nation allows only male rulers, only female rulers, or both. Because it's great that you can make the starting ruler and heir for that Amazon nation female, but what about when the heir takes over and then has an heir of her own? If that heir is male, it no longer fits for the Amazons.

200 is 'normal' difficulty, so the idea is it will let you create an average-powered state. Some of the historical majors have NIs that make for an 'easy' or 'very easy' game, and you can choose to give yourself enough points for that if you like.
