Is it just me, or does the Byzantium flag rock?
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.
Was that possible at the time?Mettermrck said:A Thrace-Smyrna bridge out of marble? Now that's a project worthy of a mad emperor. I shudder to think of the difficulties involved, hehe.
- Normal, Coward, as I heard that yields a more historical map.OLDTIMER said:Hi,
nice work so far. I have some questions as my campaigns as Byzantium are not as easy as your seem to be:
- what settings did you start with?
- didn`t the Ottomans try to steal your siege of Smyrna? I usually have this happen 3 times out of 4 forcing me to restart until I get Smyrna for myself.
- did you really beat the Ghazi in Smyrna immediately with only 15000 men?
I can wear them down with such an army, but for outright victory I need at least 12000 cav + my all remaining inf and even then I loose a couple of battles in their second province before I can lay siege to Ghazi capital.
- what is your inflation level?
- did you take loans and how many?
- did you go bankrupt?
I`m asking because usually I can take 4-5 provinces till 1450-ies but then my inflation is in the 50-ies and I have level 1 techs only as loan interests and bankruptcies make it impossible to develop techs and keep inflation down. It`s not very fun to continue under such premises. That at default settings.
If you managed to avoid problems I use to have as per above I would appreciate guidance.
I`ll be following this, good luck.
