The most current development version is available on Github. Be aware, the development version may contain bugs and incomplete features. To install it, either use Git to clone the repository (git clone email@example.com:Ofaloaf/postapoc.git) and pull the latest versions (git pull), or if you don't know how to use Git you can go to the Github link, click "Download ZIP", and extract the contents of the "postapoc-master" folder into your My Documents/Paradox Interactive/Crusader Kings II/mod folder.
A custom map of North America. Provinces currently implemented for all the US east of the Mississippi, most of southeastern Canada, and the Caribbean
Ability to play as Catholic, Evangelical, Ursuline (with a female-only papacy), High Church (Anglican), Anabaptist, Americanist (headed by an elected President), Rust Cultist (can salvage pre-apocalypse technology), Occultist, Revelationist, Thelema, Atomicist, Norse, Rastafarian, Santeria, or Voodoo. All religions can sail up rivers.
Formable titular empires for every culture, from Beltway to Yooper
More gender equality: Women with stats over 20 can hold council positions with Agnatic-Cognatic and any women can serve with Cognatic. Enatic (women only) and Enatic-Cognatic (female preference) are also available, and the reverse is true for them.
Q: Why is the game crashing when I click "Single Player"?
A: Most likely because the mod hasn't been updated for the current version of CK2. Check to see if the version listed on the download link is the right one. If not, try the latest Github version.
Q: Which modules do I use?
A: Always enable the main After the End module. If you have the African Faces DLC, enable the African Faces module. If you have Sunset Invasion, enable the Sunset Invasion module (don't worry, this won't lead to an invasion, it just allows Native Americans to use those portraits).
Q: Why are some areas blank, "noculture", and/or without playable rulers?
A: The map is still a work in progress.
Q: Do you plan to cover the rest of the US/Canada/Mexico?
A: Yes, we plan to cover the whole map.
Q: What kind of apocalypse happened?
A: We're deliberately leaving this ambiguous.
Q: How much technology is left over?
A: Not very much. Currently there are some events for scavenging pre-apocalypse tech, though.
Q: Are there any hordes or European invasions?
A: There are currently British and Brazilian invasions, which occur in the 2800s.
Q: Why are there Norse in the Great Lakes region?
A: The sheer prevalence of Viking merchandise in those regions as well as the existence of things like the modern Asatru revivalist movement influenced the development of a Norse faith among the survivors in that area over the centuries. We are considering modifying the flavor text from vanilla to reflect the origins of this revival.
