So, according to Fred and Shams, at present, V3 is not in the works because it has no internal team member championing ideas for development. That's fair, because I'd hate to see a pedestrian sequel come out with no real thought put into development. Hopefully it'll happen at some point (I think it will) but I'd just like to say thanks to the two guys for giving an answer as to the status of the game.

That should have probably been "it has no internal team member that isnt busy with other projects championing ideas for development". Both me and Wiz love Victoria for example but are fiendishly busy with other stuff.

Dont worry there is a secret word document with design several people have been adding stuff to even since HoD was half-way done. We'll get around to a Vicky eventually.

Awesome. And if you don't, I'll have poisoned you with manticore venom. How much whiskey will I need to bring next time to see that document?

That was an awesome pic, Red. Well done! Although I can't for the life of me figure out why a simple picture would impress me so much.

Please please please please add some demand substitution mechanics to that document if there aren't any right now. More then half of the problems with erratic market behavior can be traced back to the fact that consumers and factories were completely rigid in their needs.

If markets were flexible enough you could even push the scarcity of goods up to a very rigid level and properly capture the feel of industry exploding!

Podcat, this is something I've been wondering a lot:
There is a propolsals for Victoria 3 thread in the Victoria 2 forum, have you or Wiz or any other mod which loves Victoria browsed a bit or had a look?
or will you do so before making Victoria 3?

Thanks. Have a good day!

Victoria 3 is really needed. After that Rome 2 can come but before that I want Victoria 3.
