The Yuan dynasty again? Historically, the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century was basically the eastern Mongol Empire with a Khan ruling it - we can't have that in a Chinese empire!

To be clear, our nation still has the MNG tag so that events, the factions etcetra work as before. All I did was changing the name, colour and shield.Cool i like he tag change.
Nope. As Ming you will always have the factions, there is no way to get rid of them. That´s why I strife to balance the factions, so that I can minimize their negative impact.I was expecting the change of government to do away with the whole faction thing. Does anything?

I know what you're saying but yes, going republic makes the game so much easier and dynamic under factions that it's a much better choice than monarchy. You could see the Mandate of Heaven as the Mandate of the People while being a republic.I find it odd you can keep the Mandate of Heaven as a republic. I take your reasoning, but it feels sad the most successful way to play Ming is to turn republic.
Of course, I'll show it when I get home. And yes, it's a dragon. If we go ahistorical, we should go ahistorical in style 8)Could you show us your new flag? Is it dragon?
Johan said:- China can no longer get conquistadors or explorers unless the eunuchs are in power.
I've just looked at the 5.1 Beta patch and I spotted one big change that makes the strategy followed in this AAR obsolete:
I sent the first explorer out in 1489, while the Eunuchs only rose to power in 1544. With 5.1 it's much more difficult for Ming to Westernise. So in 5.1 it's much more important to increase Eunuch influence from the start. Even then, Westernization in even the best of situations will come much later.
What about rising influnce of temples and discovering new land with warmongering to everyone in your path to russia. IIRC you need latin, orthodox or muslim neigbour for the first westernatization to muslim tech group, right?
Oooh, didn't think of that. It would be possible to fight through the hordes and sell/conquer a province next to Novgorod or a Russian princedom. I don't know if it's possible to explore without conquistadors through Military Access territory, but if it is, you can from then explore the rest of Europe to get a Western neighbour.

Well, it gets worse....It is sad to see a 7-9-9 ruler is not welcomed...
Good to hear you like it. As for the overview screenshots, I'll see what I can do. In some wars the gains are so small and obvious that it doesn't add much to give an overview. But I can imagine that for you readers it might be difficult to get the whole picture from time to time, while for me playing the game it's obvious. So far I've shown the peace negotiations as much as possible, but perhaps that's not enough to give you a clear idea of the new situation?Nice update. Nice new flag. Nice everything
But when there's war involved, I'd really like to see your country after it, with changed borders and general political situation, y'know.

For example I don't mention tech levels and such, as these kinds of thing can quickly bore the audience.
