  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.

As project started in this thread https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ast-nations-with-generic-ideas.843578/page-11 has been finished, a group of devoted forum users created historical National Idea Sets for all remaining Generic countries and many countries from collective NI groups. To be exact, there are 72 National Idea groups covering 111 countries :D I have to split code on few posts because a single post cannot contain more than 50 000 characters :D :D :D

I have just released mod with it and now I am publishing code here for eventual inspiration. Maybe few bits of it will be adopted to the game...

Code is 99% bugfree as I have been checking it obsessively, every NI should work and display historical description, we tried to make NIs balanced, useful and varied.

Warning: following posts contain insane amounts of code.

SUMMARY:
111 total countries with National Ideas raised from generics or NI groups, divided on:
41 new separate National Idea Sets for countries which previously had useless Generic
20 new separate National Idea Sets for countries which previously had collective group sets (like German etc)
11 new collective National Idea Groups covering together 52 nations
8 previously generic NI nations now sharing ideas with other nations due to cultural criterias (Imereti - Georgian)

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

 black_guard: "Black Guard"
 black_guard_desc: "Our lands are populated by black tribes from southern Africa who live in special colonies; their children traditionally learn masonry, archery, horsemanship, and musketry.

 european_alliances: "European Alliances"
 european_alliances_desc: "Our diplomat Marzuq Rais has finally convinced us. Maybe Western Europeans are heathens but they are wise heathens, as we are, and our both religion come from the same holy prophecies of Abraham and Moses. Spain is greedy, vicious and bloodthirsty monster, but it has its enemies in the Christian lands, especially England and France - and governments of those great sultanates value friendship and peace over pointless hatred. Their trade companies are willing to exchange sugar and saltpeter for artillery and their sultans can be convinced to join us in our interfaith alliance against our common foes. As God has said, good Christians and Jews can also have acces to Heaven."

He visioned that Islam would prevail in the Americas and the Mahdi would be proclaimed from the two sides of the oceans. Given Moroccan geographic position, economic power and Berber naval skills it maybe wasn't completely impossible..."
 traverse_sahara: "Traverse Sahara"
 traverse_sahara_desc: "Our people descend from deserts and perfectly how to survive in this environment; our soldiers, merchants and spies know Saharan geography, trade routes and water supplies very good. Meanwhile, south from Sahara there are decentralized but rich African nations equipped with countless treasures. Furthermore, they lack our military discipline and firearms - it's time to traverse Sahara and fulfill the will of God."
 restoration_ben_youssef_medrassa: "University of al-Qarawiyyin"
 restoration_ben_youssef_medrassa_desc: "The University of al-Qarawiyyin is a university located in Fes built as early as in 9th century, and it is one of the leading spiritual and educational centres of Muslim world. The complex serves the roles of mosque, medrassa and college; students may learn here Islamic law, grammac, rhetoric, logic, medicine, mathematics and astronomy.

 sertanejos_desc: "These foreigners provide a useful service to our realm as advisors and interpreters. We must make sure to keep a careful eye on them."
 zimbabwe_relics: "Relics of the Great Zimbabwe"
 zimbabwe_relics_desc: "Our kingdom has its origins in the great kingdom to the south. Their pride is ours, and let foreigners look on their great works with awe." 
 nubian_ideas: "Nubian Ideas"
 nubian_ideas_start: "Nubian traditions"
 nubian_ideas_bonus: "Nubian ambitions"
 desert_warriors: "Desert Warriors"
 desert_warriors_desc: "From ancient times, we have been known as a nation of fierce warriors. Many have come south from Egypt or out of the mountains of Ethiopia thinking to conquer us, but few have had any sort of success."

Tripura and Manipur - share ideas with Bengal as Kachar already does it while having the same culture
Sadiya - shares idea with Assam as it has Assamese culture and is basically Assamese principality
Patiala - shares idea with Punjab; Panjabi culture and Sikh default religion
Banjar and Kutai; share Malayan ideas, they are Muslim sultanates on Brunei Island and their neighbor Brunei has this group, so why they don't?
Imereti - shares idea with Georgia as it is essentially Georgian split state
Blambangan - shares idea with Sunda and Majapahit as Javanese Hindu kingdom.

I think i found a bug(s).
Dutch colonial nation do not use the colonial ideas, instead it uses the low countries ideas.
Australia to not use the australian ideas instead it uses its old ideas.

First one is probably caused by me setting Low Countries as used for countries with Dutch culture.
Second one is ridiculous. I will check both.

I didn't detect them because they are unlikely to happen in normal game (and I forgot about colonials)

Hey Krajzen, I think you may have missed my Baden ideas in the original thread. I'm not seeing them here...

Bug: Sixth mayan idea reduces missionary strength rather than increasing it

Will fix it along few other silly little bugs.

Once I put integer in wrong place and some nation got +50% discipline xD (un)fortunately I detected that and fixed.

For Australia I think you need to update the Form Australia decision file to change ideas and traditions. Same goes for any other formable nation that has new ideas.

Livonian Order's ideas are just bad...

german_mercenaries = {
mercenary_cost = -0.25

..What mercenaries.. Livonian Order had almost all army from local nobles and it definitely wasn't able to afford mercenaries.. especially in any major way..

the_orders_artillery = {
artillery_cost = -0.15

..What artillery.. One of the biggest towns was Reval (Tallinn).. and it had only 2 artillery towers.. giving a bonus to artillery is just strange, when Livonian Order wasn't even able to afford enough artillery for it's major towns, yet alone for it's army..

livlandische_landtag = {
stability_cost_modifier = -0.1

..And it gives stabily.. Have you seen the map of Livonian order turning that time period (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/43/Livonia_in_1534_(English).png) ..Livonian Order barely controlled half of its territory.. How that can increase stability??

Also defensivness should be one of the first ideas.. Have you seen east of Livonian Order.. (hint.. Russia)

Well, original suggestions were mine: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum...ith-generic-ideas.843578/page-7#post-19063738
That said, I see that Krajzen has made some changes afterwards which I don't necessarily agree with (extra missionary is just plain dead weight, and numbers were never Livonian Order's advantage so I also disagree with cost modifiers).
german_mercenaries = {
mercenary_cost = -0.25

..What mercenaries.. Livonian Order had almost all army from local nobles and it definitely wasn't able to afford mercenaries.. especially in any major way..
I am pretty sure mercenaries were used to some extent, although indeed not in excessive quantities. If you have better suggestions then you can put it forward.
the_orders_artillery = {
artillery_cost = -0.15

..What artillery.. One of the biggest towns was Reval (Tallinn).. and it had only 2 artillery towers.. giving a bonus to artillery is just strange, when Livonian Order wasn't even able to afford enough artillery for it's major towns, yet alone for it's army..
Original suggestion was motivated by Plettenberg's usage or artillery in 1501-1503 war. I don't know why combat ability was changed to cost modifier though.
livlandische_landtag = {
stability_cost_modifier = -0.1

..And it gives stabily.. Have you seen the map of Livonian order turning that time period (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/43/Livonia_in_1534_(English).png) ..Livonian Order barely controlled half of its territory.. How that can increase stability??
So you think idea is bad, or just its bonus is bad or what? Maybe come up with better one?? Tbh Bishoprics should be independent countries anyway...
Also defensivness should be one of the first ideas.. Have you seen east of Livonian Order.. (hint.. Russia)
At 1444 east of Livonian Order are Novgorod and Pskov and main threat is actually at south. That said, defensiveness is easily least useful military bonus, so pushing it forward is unlikely to have positive effect on Livonian Order's survivability.

I will think about balance of ideas as well as add them to TIRHUT which suddenly turned to be only idealess country left :D

...but to regain productivity first I will need to stop being devastated by sudden relationship between love of my life and my best friend so well Tirhut you are screwed :D

Tnx to me Meiou and Taxes have quite historical set of ideas.If u want then u can use this one as an example. Also, because I live in Estonia (previously part of Livonian Order) and I had history major in high school (Estonian history, Tallinn history, History based on different time periods etc.) I know quite a bit more about history of Livonian Order..

Are you really going to criticise an entire body of over 100 sers of NIs because one is off. Wow... That's fussy.
