- Disable hardcoded antipope mechanic (or add an on_yearly_pulse event that detects hardcode-style antipapacies and automatically converts them to this softcoded system, working with the hardcoded AI rather than against it)
- Create duplicate religions (catholic_b, catholic_c, etc.--not heretical, but merely schismatic, as Orthodox is), with corresponding papacy titles (d_catholic_b) and holy sites
- Add a targeted decision (or an on_yearly_pulse event if a hardcode-style antipope is detected--see above) to convert yourself and a theocratic vassal to catholic_b and grant d_catholic_b to the vassal
- Add decisions allowing other characters to convert from Catholicism to catholic_b or vice versa, even if they're outside your realm
- Edit vanilla antipope-related CBs and factions accordingly (e.g., a character in an antipapal realm could be publicly catholic_b but secretly Catholic--i.e., loyal to the Pope in Rome--and could start an antiking faction)
- Other fiddly things (decision to depose captive antipope by destroying/deactivating d_catholic_b and converting back to Catholic; event to exchange Catholic and catholic_b if the antipope gains the County of Rome (note: antipope does not usurp k_papal_state, and does not have a claim on that title beforehand); etc.)

Has anyone tried this? A barebones proof of concept (just barely implementing the first three items described above with the catholic_b religion, complete with quasi-cardinals) is attached.

Feel free to use this idea in your own mod.

hmm... I'll have to keep an eye on this, it promises, especially as a way to simulate the Western Schisms of the late middle ages

Can vanilla antipopes be disabled though?

Code:
christian = {
  catholic = {
