The engine doesn't care if your country is surrounded, you don't need to have borders for trading on the same continent.
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.
I didn't know that, thanks for the info.The engine doesn't care if your country is surrounded, you don't need to have borders for trading on the same continent.
France fell indeed before I could interevene. i had some troops that could be shipped over to France, but I decided this would be a complete waste of time and men.Interesting developments!
It's a shame France fell before you could intervene... or perhaps that was your intention? It does make the task ahead harder, hence more interesting.
I'm not sure how the British would have got on with this Middle East problem on their own. I find they can usually deal with Iraq, depending what the Italians are throwing at them, and it certainly helps if Iran sides with the Allies. Having both Iraq and Iran in the Axis (and at the same time) is not something I've seen before - but I'm sure Japan will save the day.
Iran doesn't usually get forced into war unless Germany is fighting the Soviets (Operation Countenance). Have I missed the start of Barbarossa in this game?
Indeed it is, but, by now, the bear is busy fighting against the Reichsadler. But rest assured I haven't forgotten the existence of the probably largest post-war-threat to the great Japanese Empire.Persia might come back to you if you decided to continue the game past the point where the Axis are defeated. The Russian bear is lurking overhead
the idea is to take Malta with paratroopers and then to use the port to launch an invasion at Sicily. Next thing will be a landing on Sardinia. But you'll see that I'll have to shift priorities already soon after the start of the invasion in the next updateAn ambitious plan. One question -- I can obviously tell some of your paras are headed for Sardinia, but I'm assuming Malta is still British, so where are the paras there going? Sicily?
I personally think it's great!the idea is to take Malta with paratroopers and then to use the port to launch an invasion at Sicily. Next thing will be a landing on Sardinia. But you'll see that I'll have to shift priorities already soon after the start of the invasion in the next update
How do you like the style of this AAR so far? Do you have suggestions for improvements?
Thanks!I personally think it's great!
So, I think the answer to my question is, Malta is Italian? Or are you crazy enough to DOW the allies?
I saw the same, but, as the Regia Marina abandoned the port, i decided that the island had no longer a major priority for me and to let the British take it beack once they were done in Northern Africa.It seems to be quite common for Italy to invade Malta and for some reason I don't see the British try to take it back! In fact the same seems to hold in reverse with Sardinia, as though the AI likes to take territory but can't be much bothered to recover lost territory!
Anyway, I like the plan for Italy and hopefully it will result in a useful encirclement if the Italians supply some troops. Nice overview.
Thanks!Awesome AAR, and great narrative. Even greater is your fight to keep your democracy... seems you're getting bombarded by random events!
