+Lower taxes for Capis, that usually does the job and invest a lot of RP´s into industry techs.- What I find the most efficienct way to get industrialisation going is to use NF to promote capitalists, especially in an area with high concentration of people.
I always use small armies[3x Inf 1x Artillery, 3x Inf 1x tank/aeroplane) and stack them if the situation demands it- Small cavalry forces to flank and occupy enemy territory is great, while the main armies take on enemy forces. Reconaissance affects how quickly you occupy.
On the moment I´ve noticed it yesterday I was happy, because that´s a tiny but good feature- When you play multiplayer, if someone is lagging behind, the game will now automatically slow down to let them catch up. You can even see what date everyone is on in a tooltip over the pause button.
The whole chemistry area is rather good and if you add up the growth techs with the healthcare you´ll get a nice growth rate- Medicine is a vitally underrated technology. Besides its great bonus to supply limits, the inventions effects are absolutely great.
I prefer kickstart loans for war- You can kickstart your economy by taking loans and invest in alot of infrastructure, just to let your factories, rgo's and artisans get money etc. Kind of like the real world.
Toooooo big Secondary´s for me and the USA aswell as prussia for me- I like playing Russia... I usually neglect the balkans and focus on Sweden and Persia first into my sphere. Big nice markets with alot of raw materials.
It´s too hard to run the russian military with high/maximum efficiency IMO
