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.
The Anglos will try, at the very least.Hopefully the revisionist dogs in Italy can be swiftly brought into line, allowing the continued advance of Moselyite-Browderite thought and the Liberation of All Mankind.
You gotta give them a carrot every once in a while after all, Jodel. The policy is carrot and stick, after all.Geez, the Japanese are so soft nowadays. Giving colonials real family registries and citizenship!! What has the world come to.
Korea is a mess and trying to repeat what happened in Taiwan there will probably not go according to plan. However as mentioned before - the East Indies, or well the Islamic majority that have proven their loyalty, are due for independence to the degree of the former territories of Australasia; Australia and New Zealand themselves will be let somewhat more off the leash in 1954; the rest of the Pacific however will be in for a policy along the lines of Taiwan.The relatively peaceful integration of Taiwan is certainly a coup for Japan, as they can point to their success there as the example for integrating the rest of their colonial possessions in good time. That being said, I don't imagine the Republic of China taking the news all that well, though I don't see what they can do about it immediately beyond delivering a sternly-worded protest through their embassy.
On that note, it'll be interesting to see how the situation in the rest of Japan's colonial empire has been evolving. Korea, I imagine, is as fractious as ever, but how have things been going in the East Indies, Hawaii, and the South Sea possessions?
You gotta build up, before you can tear down.I hope that Japan will face some problems soon. Everything is going good for them so far!
Indeed, it is kind of remarkable even how many bright people that would go on to create great things came from the region at that time.I love it that we now start to see all those bright people who in OTL left eastern Europe for America, achieve fame and successes in this much nicer, prosperous, not destroyed by a world war, eastern (Mittel-)Europe.
The scars can heal, but the wounds that caused them will still remain in memory. We'll see what happens though.Now that they're no longer under direct military occupation, hopefully Australia and New Zealand will be able to heal from the scars of the recent war, both physical and psychological.
The development of a vaccine for polio is a truly spectacular development, in that world as in this one. I never cease to be amazed by the progress humanity has made in combating disease and infection over the past century and a half or so.
Well, Koprowski only left after 1939 so it wouldn't be that weird to expect him to have stuck around. Sabin/Saperstein is however alt-history as you say.It's good to see polio defeated. I find the fact that these scientists stayed in Poland to be a creative use of alternate timeline.
And about Australia: it's good to see thet Australians remained reasonable. I think that Japanese should remind them that they protect Australasia from syndycalism.
Aye, the multipolar world as well as the lack of any real international organizations like the UN to try and alleviate tensions would likely lead to rather interesting differences. Despite this you will still likely have the Great Powers coming to realize the threat of Mutually Assured Destruction and subsequently attempt to limit proliferation.The Reds have the Bomb! *gasp*
In all seriousness, though, I imagine it's only a matter of time before we start seeing a classic nuclear arms race between all the major powers. It'll be interesting (in a very morbid way, but interesting nonetheless) to see how global nuclear policy will play out in a world that is still fundamentally multipolar in outlook, rather than effectively partitioned between two ideologically opposed superpowers and their respective spheres of influence.
It is the time of tragic unsung heroes, after all.That song in the beginning is great. I feel sympathy for Canadian rebels. They shall be respected for their heroic, desperate and hopeless last stand.
I think I mentioned it before, but yes Mexico did collectivize to a degree. The Zapatist land reforms had much to do with pushing tenant collectivization. However unlike the collective farms of OTL Eastern Bloc or TTL North America the land itself is parcelled out to farmers instead of farmed collectively. The facilities, such as farming machines etc, are however maintained collectively.8 million dead from collectivization in CSA / Canada, ouch
Did Mexico do collectivization too? Also in its formerly American territories?
I'm glad you enjoy it and I'm glad to have you.I like how CSA going through similar changes in ideology just like USSR under Stalin in OTL.
Ouch! I've lost a few HDDs in my time; trying to get anything off of one once it really starts to go is always a gamble. Hope everything ends up going as smoothly as possible.Okay then, I have a bit of bad news for you. The HDD that held most of my stuff, including savefiles for the AAR, is currently on the fritz. I was up until 2AM last night attempting to fix it until I gave up and went to bed. A few more restarts and drive fixes since then seem to have stabilized it to a degree.
I'm not sure how much stuff I'll be able to salvage. Due to this the AAR is going on a short hiatus. It might be back next week, since I already ordered a new SSD to replace the HDD. However it might take more time, especially if it needs some kind of restoration work. In that case I'm hoping to be back online by some point in September.
Luckily, I managed to get almost everything necessary out. The new SSD also arrived rather fast, so it's all good now.Ouch! I've lost a few HDDs in my time; trying to get anything off of one once it really starts to go is always a gamble. Hope everything ends up going as smoothly as possible.
Yeah, I've considered it. I actually kept the pictures up on imgur with a backup on Google Drive, just in case. I also had a backup for the document I use for writing the AAR on Google Drive as well. The real issue there were the modded AAR files and saves that I had forgotten to update. Won't make that mistake ever again.Speaking about the HDD: I think that you should upload your saves to googledrive if you retrieve them. That way they'll be save no matter what happens to your physical hard drive.
