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.
The entire CK2 patch "Iron Century" was a side project and still got art front and center.So, the ''side projects'' showcased in the dev diares before are actually front and center in the expansion trailer, as in, both the North America and Oceania content. So that was a bit misleading, was it not? i'm confused here.
Yeah, South America is still incredibly barren. 4 wandering tribes isn't that suitable but it's literally all it has outside of the Andes and the Muisca. I could easily see Africa getting another look over as well. Scandinavia's last big facelift was in the Denmark patch, but they don't even have missions. More Baltic State content could also be justified imo.Imo, South America + Africa are enough for +1 full dlc, others neglected regions like Escandinavia+Siberia could be content packs.
'There is no document of civilization which is not at the same time a document of barbarism.'Slave plantations of Brazil could be a great focus of the dlc
Splitting colonies into settler colonies and trade posts is the only feature I really miss from EU2.Africa....especially West Africa could use a big tweak by which the melanin-deprived can only establish trading forts, which would give them a presence in, but not control over, a given province.
I genuinely agree with this as long as they don't go overboard the other way and misrepresent why the events happened. If they include the Atlantic Slave Trade they would have to add the Indian Slave trade as well. If they do something to point out the anti-semitism, there must be a reason for a country taking anti-semetic action like in CK2 and face the consequences of said action. They would also have to represent the persecution of the Roma people in the Balkans along with other groups and it would lead to bad PR due to a double standard. EU4 isn't a great sim for this due to a lack of pops and it's mechanics regarding development being shallower than a puddle, but I would like to see this in the game regardless to contextualize my actions and add in a little bit of RP. I could be an enlightened king and go against the will of the common people protecting the Jews in my country for an additional advisor or I could be "evil"(in the modern sense), take their property and kick them out. Also please don't space out your text like with the double break. Formattingwise it's quite rude.For instance, the Atlantic slave trade is very underwhelming in EU4 even though it was verfy profitable at the time - and thus caused enormous misery for unfortunates sold to European slavers. Another problem is anti-Semitism and presence of Jews in Europe. It's like the holocaust came early, and the survivors high-tailed it to the Americas - or Mars.
Concerning 'barbarism', I think it's okay if the player is allowed to be 'evil' so long as they are told that 'you know this is pretty awful, right?' Then they can say 'yes, and damn it I'm doing it anyway', or 'no, and I'll pay a steep price to stop it.'
I don't know the specifics of sugar plantations in Brazil, but if they were like the plantations of other countries... they were pretty arresting places. Pun intended (with a bit of British understatement).
That's no reason not to depict them.
I had a shot at a WC back during 1.16 (I think?) not too long after Cossacks came out where I played the Great Horde and reformed them into the Golden Horde. It was 1822 and I only had 2 nations left on map with maybe a war each to finish up. I was super shocked when I saw the date and asked about it online. Found out there was a glitch that I triggered when I hit escape around 1821 and it sailed right past the end date.Looking forward to whatever the 'centralise the HRE by 1500' bug of this expansion is. I really didn't take my chance to do a WC during that era
I'm confuse, we are 20 dev diaries in and we still don't know anything about the core mechanics of this DLC.
Its sad, but this sound like a simple money grab.
Maybe I am misremembering but with all the previous dlcs they have always shown most important features before announcements.I think we'll have to wait and see... Definitely hoping they are planning on finishing the dev diaries strong. Johan seems to imply they've only scratched the surface on expansion features in the prior dev diaries.
(just to clarify and have it all in one place) - Totemism religion - Extend Regencies, Estate-led regencies - Draft Transports - Monuments - Play Tall #1 - Expand Infrastructure - Play Tall #2 - NOT SHOWN YET - Play Tall #3 - NOT SHOWN YET -...forum.paradoxplaza.com
This one was also dealing with the new studio. Things are a bit different. We saw very early work on some things like the North America rework. Earlier than we usually ever see as well.Maybe I am misremembering but with all the previous dlcs they have always shown most important features before announcements.
You are right about south america and west africa. Also I think the current treaty of tordesillas is a terrible mechanic. They need a specific one where Spain tells portugal to aside from brazil stay out of the americas or else.Yeah, South America is still incredibly barren. 4 wandering tribes isn't that suitable but it's literally all it has outside of the Andes and the Muisca. I could easily see Africa getting another look over as well. Scandinavia's last big facelift was in the Denmark patch, but they don't even have missions.
