I think it was written like that because that was the test case ;) as far as I know the general case was fixed that stopped volunteers engaging
Now for the first I'm getting really excited by reading the 1.9.1 beta changelogs. :)
I had some issues with (air volunteer) fighters nearly don't gain xp if they fight against relatively small enemy airwings. Are there any changes planned?

Oh no April Fool Dev Diary, atleast until now.

Fighting volunteers is very nice to see.

Could someone quickly explain which SP ABCD is what? D is probably Democratic, but if SPA is anarchist why would GB give territory to them? And only at the very and to SPC, are those Carlists or Communists?
SPD is Republican, SPA is Nationalist (a holdover from very early design I believe), SPB are the Carlists and SPC are the CNT-FAI or POUM. The letters are basically arbitrary, riffing on SPA as the logical tag for Spain (compare with USB from Man the Guns for the neutral faction in the USA civil war)

not too likely for 1.9.1 I think. but maybe it was tied to the system not working well also, so check after these other fixes

I will just repeat my request from previous beta patch update.

Can the Division equipment list be fixed so that if you do not have equipment in storage or in circulation - then equipment should not be shown in the list anymore. Mid and especially late game makes this list extremely painful to go through if you want to shuffle various grades of equipment to different units.

As I said in my previous message, I will not say it is critical or should be high priority, but would be nice to get it aknowledged for a fix in future. Keep it going guys.

Not for 1.9.1 but my long term "crappy UIs" list does have the division equipment listing on it

Although I love the new skins for all the Spanish and Portuguese factions, but I think the Francoist nationalist path should have a second skin representing the colonial army that were known "regulares"

- Updated BLR division names to use Belarusian instead of Russian.
- Added in decision category art for generic formable nations.
- The UK will now prioritize giving Gibraltar, if possible, to SPD, then SPA, then SPB and, only if no other Spanish tag exists, to SPC when they complete "Withdraw from Contested Territories" focus.

If you want to see past changes and full changelog, check out the Beta Patch thread here as well as info on how to start playing on it.

To highlight some changes: We have restricted collaboration regimes further for AI, but opened it up more for players and fixed various issues with guarantee and event chains. We have also added support for accessibility features in multiplayer, like increased font sizes, notifications and text to speech support:

Really great!
Thanks for the collaboration govs spam fixing, PDX!
Great thanks for the new advisors and generals for the Spain!
I'm very happy.
What else remains to be done (In my opinion ofc).
1.Normal quasi-historical change of leaders of France (Laval-Blum-Daladier-Reynaud) like the UK has.
Besides, I think that the game also needs some events for replacing the leaders of some countries in the historical time.
These countries are Yugoslavia and South Africa
See here https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ace-the-leaders-at-a-historic-moment.1348969/
2.Pay attention on this thread:
https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...archist-france-focuses.1361117/#post-26383975
This guy is right. Requiring of the Carlist Spain in the Portuguese and French focus trees is very strange. What if the carlist did not win? Why can't we restore their power by force?
3.Will the number of Portuguese portraits increase? There is a lack of portrait for one general and most advisers.
