Why is Victoria 3 not coming any time soon, my two cents...

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.

I'd like too to see what would come out of a Victoria III. But I'd prefer developers to take their time and create something that can stand on its own. I don't think that Victoria III would benefit from having many DLCs.

The sheer number of different pops in any given province in V2 was problematical at times. I feel that a few of them could be combined, such as having one pop with different religions, and a single variable per religion present in the province to denote how many of them follow the majority religion and how many follow each of the 2 or 3 other religions in the province that have significant representation.

The concept of pops was one of the most remarkable aspects of the Victoria series, and I hope to see it implemented (usually in slightly simpler form) in several other Paradox IPs, since the "all or nothing" mechanics of cultural or religious conversion in those games fail miserably to mirror reality.

I don't know if this is the right thread to post this,but I couldn't find any other recent thread about vic3.
Two feature I'd like to see in vicky 3:
-Costumizable ideologies; when the ck3 dev diary about religions came out somebody mentioned that the system could also work for political ideologies in a Vicky/HOI game.
Now,I don't know much about political ideologies during the Victorian period,but I would have four big ideology groups: "democratic","authoritarian","socialist","fascist" these would decide what type of governments your ideology allows and what traits are available.
Individual ideologies would have a set of 4 minor traits and 2 major ones,with minor traits depending on the major traits chosen. These traits would influence the ideologie's stance on various issues,among other things.
-Characters; these would represent all the important people in your state; presidents,monarchs,ministers,powerful business men,generals and so on.Each character would belong to a POP and would have a certain outlook on various issues.
This outlook would be influenced by their ideology,but also by other factors(for example business men wouldn't support lowering the maximum work hours).
I think a system like this would really shine in democratic states,where you could have two candidates from the same party,but with a different outlook on issues.
