Are you still working on your map edits, or is the project on indefinite hiatus? The changes you've made so far are great.
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.
It is a bit sad that you decided not to finalise your old map project. Really liked it. But nice to see you back anyway.I switched to EU IV last year but I still miss the historicity of FTG so I see myself returning to this mod eventually. In the meantime, you are free to recommend further changes to the current map.
The island it's connected to on the Plvs Vltra map is the one circled here. While it's supposed to be close to Ösel, it's not supposed to be attached to it by land. Perhaps this was fixed in the version of the map you're editing, but it's still an issue as of the latest Plvs Vltra release available.I just checked Osel and it looks fine (not connected to Dago or the mainland).
I'm not sure about Gibraltar yet. It seems it would only exist for Britain not to mention that it can only be given to it artificially by event (and I would like to avoid 'treaty' provinces if possible).Look good. Just Kampen (Kempen?) is misplaced (it's one of the traditional cities in Oversticht/Overijssel). Should be either North Brabant, Breda or Den Bosch.
Liege would be good to see as well.
Gibraltar seems missing. Intended?
And I really liked beautiful and atmospheric "classical" Anglicized names forms from your previous map project. I would just borrow them here too. They would feat aesthetics of this map as well.
There was very interesting set of events about Bayreuth (using Wurzburg province) in older versions of AGCEEP about dynastic relations within Hohenzollern branches. You can still find them in MyMap. I think it's a nice flavour for Brandenburg player.the other two are Ansbach and Kulmbach/Bayreuth but I don't think these were that important
I see, thanks.
And the province would be too small anyway.The name Vierburgenland (Land of Four Castles) was created in 1919 by Odo Rötig, a Viennese resident in Sopron. It was derived from the name of the four vármegye of the Kingdom of Hungary (in German Komitate, 'counties') known in Hungarian as Pozsony, Moson, Sopron and Vas, or in German as Pressburg, Wieselburg, Ödenburg and Eisenburg. After the town of Pozsony/Pressburg was assigned to Czechoslovakia the number vier was dropped, but the name was kept because it was deemed to be appropriate for a region with so many old frontier castles. The "Burgenland" name was adopted by the first provincial Landtag in 1922. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burgenland
I colored it in on the map to see how it would look, and it seems like a pretty good and balanced setup overall. I am not entirely sure if only two provinces for Bavaria is ideal, but it probably won't make much of a difference. I did like the PV setup with three provinces more though.The Slovakian provinces are Pozsony (Presburg) and Kassa (could be named Carpathia). I guess Marmatia ('Ruthenia' province in vanilla) would be Ruthenian.
As for HRE states, I had the following in mind:
the electors: Brandenburg, Bohemia, Palatinate, Saxony, Cologne, Mainz, Trier; eventually Bavaria and Hanover (from these only Trier lacks events in AGCEEP/PV)
the archduchies: Austria
the archbishoprics: Salzburg, Magdeburg, Bremen (I think the first two lack events)
the duchies: Julich-Cleves-Berg, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg, Pomerania and Wirtemberg (I think these are the only historical duchies apart from Saxe-Lauenberg, which was very small, and the splintered Thuringian/Silesian duchies).
some largish bishoprics: Munster, Wurzburg, Utrecht (maybe) and Strassburg (only the last has events)
landgraviates/margraviates: Hesse, Baden (the other two are Ansbach and Kulmbach/Bayreuth but I don't think these were that important)
counties: Oldenburg (just because it gets to be inherited by Denmark)
Good call. Always found the events regarding those provinces a bit odd in AGCEEP, since it felt like Hungary gave Austria a lot more than just some minor border towns.I think these mortgage towns can easily be represented by a tax increase in Lower Austria instead of a province secession.
Under this setup Bavaria would start with just one province - Oberbayern (representing Bavaria-Munich). Niederbayern should probably start under Luxemburg as Bavaria-Straubing until it eventually passes to Bavaria by event. Later there should be an event (there might be one already) about the inheritance of Bavaria-Landshut which would have the effect of increasing Niederbayern's tax/MP and changing its capital to Landshut.I colored it in on the map to see how it would look, and it seems like a pretty good and balanced setup overall. I am not entirely sure if only two provinces for Bavaria is ideal, but it probably won't make much of a difference. I did like the PV setup with three provinces more though.
I think it had quite legitimate tradition from 1440s.Isn't Burgenland a 20th century creation?
You can enlarge it a bit as in case of other smaller provinces (like Calais or various islands). But it's up to you.And the province would be too small anyway.
