The EU started out as the European Coal and Steel community in the early 50's
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.
But not as a country. In '52 we can use it rather as a serie of events related to pre-EU rather then as a country. Event separate Brussels an "EU-country" in 1952 would be unrealistic (however quite realistic in 2007).raider75 said:The EU started out as the European Coal and Steel community in the early 50's
I must apologize, too, since I didn't posted an actual tag list (African Nations got lots of new tags). But major countries are still the same (except URSS, as I took VIP's revolt.txt file as basis; and there the URSS is U12, not U11).MarcFloyd said:But not as a country.

I do apologize, I've been very busy last two weeks (work and exams coming :wacko: ), however I promise to do some work on events in the second half of the month.
A couple of issues I found straight away:
- North Corea has no state culture
- It is impossible to do ships since early ships are still wooden ones and we don't have clippers anymore
- stupid thing "luxury clothes" which are computers now, but they are still manufactured by using ordinary clothes I think we should change it bach to luxury clothes and we can use "clippers" tag for computers. I think that we shouldn't change originall tags if it is not neccessary (it cause more harm then good sometimes).
Is it possible to change brigades' icons?
lol?MarcFloyd said:1. Slavery - it is obsolete in modern world

I think it's too soon to take a real action about EU. For now I would keep events for the 50's (Baby-boom, German economical mircale etc.).
For the army, my sketches look like this:
inf. => foot/light infantry
drag. => mot. infantry
cav. => tanks
mil. => some special thoughts...
BB 1 => CA 1
BB 2 => CL 1
BB 3 => CL 2
BC 1 => Fr1
BC 2 => Fr 2
CL 1 => CV 1
CL 2 => CV 2
CA 1 => CV 3
CA 2 => CV 4
CV 1 => Dest 1
CV 2 => Dest 2
CV 3 => Dest 3
DD => BB
MO => CA 2
IC => SSN 3
MW => BC
FR => SSN 1
CR => SSN 2
C Trans => SS 2
SS => SS 1
S Trans => Trans
(I had to reorginize naval divisions this way, because naval units sprites are – also – hardcoded. BB 1 to BC 2 and CV 1 to CV 3 share the same sprite. CL 1 to CA 2 also another sprite.)
HQ => idem
Gua => special forces
Eng => idem
Reg. => AA
Art => idem
Arm => Anti-tanks
figthers => idem
bombers => idem
cui => Heavy tanks
hus => APC
tor => idem
dest => attack boats
cor => free
ML => idem
MS => idem
I already put aside the graphics for these. There're plenty of units images and sprites, which I took from the new HoI DD spritepack (should I ask the developers of these graphic/sprite pack to use it in ths mod?). It's just a matter of time, the revolt file is not the best work, but it needs to be done after all. But once I'm finish (hopefully today), I'll focus again on graphic work.
That's simple: country files are almost done (when parties were reworked we should have a second look on theses files). Flags (at least one for each country) are done.
What is not done: OOB, economy/industrial rework, party files, unit, ai (there is something done, but is simple too little to keep the game historical), provinces, pops, military leaders and the revolt.txt (not for long now).
I would disagree, I think that the better idea would be to choose the greater of the minor parties for that idealogy so for example the British National Party would be the UK's fascist party.Some thoughts I had this morning.
1. Slavery - it is obsolete in modern world, however we can use it in political events in some countries, mostly dictatorship ones. Specific events would convert some pops into slaves or release them (political prisoners)
2. Vietnam War
I was thinking about it for a while - how to do it realisticly, so not let USA simply conquer North Vietnam straight away.
In real war USA never invaded NV as it feard that it would bring China into conflict. We need to do exactly the same - if USA start invasion we can bring China into war.
3. Political parties
There are too many political parties in modern world, i think we should show just main ones, however we could give people a choice by
creatining "anonymus" parties with rest od ideologies not used by main ones.
In case of the UK:
-we would have three "real parties" - LibDem, Tories and Labours, which would be liberal, conservative and socialist.
-rest of politic spectrum should be covered by parties simply called "Fascist Party", "Communist Party", "Reactionary Party" etc. We can use this model in all countries, it will simplyfy our work.
