This would be a good idea, make some modifications to represent the differences of this timeline (but don't make Western Europe too poor either, the Aztecs have probably built their own cities and colonies by now).Hey CzokletMuss, have you thought in editing some provinces tax base and manpower? Because, if we think about the main provinces of the Imperium in regions like Greece and Anatolia, we can find out that are very... poor. They were historically poor because the state of constant war, plagues, and people that fled to western europe. But this time is different. The empire has protected this lands with its great power, and thousands of refugees have come from the lands of Hispania, Galia and other fallen provinces of the empire. Constantinople, in EU4, has no more than 9 tax base, and even with the Restored Theme System it just rise to 14 (Paris, a land that in a crumbling europe should be no more than... a pile of bones, maybe just a minor city, will have 16 tax base (I guess, I don't remember, but it was the biggest city at the start date). Thinking in that and a lot of more factors, Greece and Anatolia should be crowded of people by this time (And Konstantinoupolis. It must be the biggest city of the world, or one of the 3 biggest, thinking that one of them could be Tenochtitlan and... Rome? (But Italy has a good tax base and manpower, do not touch it xD). So, after all this, its difficult to think that Epirus and Albany will have only 2 and 1 tax base, when probably they should be populated with christian refugees of all kind.
Oh, and another thing. Maybe you should add an university to Constantinople. I mean, in real history, a lot of knowlege fled from the libraries of the Byzantine Empire to Italy, and, thanks to a damned thing called the Corpus Iuris Civilis born the first university (Bologna). I guess that in this world the remaining european knowledge are being protected and studied in the city of Constantine, right?
I believe they can exploit the wealth already in Europe, and if they can survive off the vile potato and tomato, they can certainly sustain it. The only way they bring wealth into Europe is if you measure wealth in potatoes, (as opposed to the much more moral turnips) and if you do you're a Pisan.Heresy! You seem to believe the Xenoi can bring wealth to Europe!
