Just wait till it will pull you back, you cannot just drop Eu2 addiction like thatHive said:Nice and Fyn.
Your map have a lot of good things, I must say. The best custom map I've seen so far, definately. Of course, I don't agree with *all* your decisions - like only giving Naples 2 provinces, making the Bulgaria province stretch to the sea, etc - but all in all, it's a damn impressive map.
It almost makes me consider going back to EU2 and AoI...
About Naples - I could have of course give it 7 provs as MKJ did but what for? The only thing Naples is supposed to do is to get annexed by Aragon/Spain and well all know that ai will try very hard to do something stupid before that, like eating half of Italy, and a lot of provinces will really help it. Perhaps the only thing to do would be to give it a 3rd province and then make all these provinces very poor... Bulgarian borders are to represent the post 1878 situation. Splitting Bulgaria would be possible but then OE would probably receive just too many provinces of wrong religion and culture in the beginning, so I'm not convinced that's really needed. Also, these provs would be then rather small and I would be asking for heavens wrath that I did leave such big provs in Spain, France, Poland or whatever other godforgotten country, while giving it all to some Bulgaria that did not even exist during the gamespan
Weird like in being wrong shaped or being there at all? As to the last I based it on the discussion in this thread: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?t=186204&page=5&pp=25 and my wish to prevent unhistorical warfare in Kola and Karelia and all the idiotic situations it leads to during any standard game. I pulled it down to Viborg to make that strategically a key province - Sweden needs to keep it if it wants to expand to the east (or go by sea), Russia needs to take it to get into Scandinavia. Pretty much what historically happened (well, and there was some congress of Vienna but that's event-worthy stuff anyway )Birger said:Looking great Kasperus!
The PTI between Finland and Novgorod looks a bit weird tho'...
