Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs, the emperor struggles with the Pope, and the Holy Father declares that all those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of their sins. Now is the time for greatness.

Increase your lands and fill your coffers, appoint vassals, battle traitors, introduce laws while interacting with hundreds of nobles, and create the most powerful dynasty of medieval Europe.

A beleaguered king will always have friends to support him. But beware, as your rule and realm may find trouble when a loyal vassal becomes a bitter rival. Stand ready, increase your prestige, and listen to the world whisper your name in awe.

Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

Crisis of the Confederation Beta 0.9
Compatible With: Crusader Kings II 2.3.4
Checksum: DOOS
Steam Workshop Mirror

Crisis of the Confederation is a total conversion mod for Crusader Kings II, allowing the player to take the role of a military officer, politician, or crime lord amidst the chaotic political upheavals of the 31st century. It is set in an original science-fiction setting inspired by Fading Suns, Warhammer 40,000, Dune, and Foundation.

Our fourth beta release is once again mostly focused on fixing bugs, we've also made strides in another areas. Graphically, COTC is almost a completely distinct game from vanilla now, as we have completely replaced all vanilla models with our custom ones, as well as added flags for all titles. There are also a few new mechanical changes, such as new combat events.

Almost as important, we have finally managed to squeeze the mod (just barely, at 47MB) onto Steam Workshop! In honor of this event, and not at all as a shameless marketing gimmick, we are also announcing the Crisis of the Confederation AAR Incentive Program Contest! The rules are simple:

  • You must write a Crisis of the Confederation AAR or record a Crisis of the Confederation LP, and submit a link to it in this thread. The AAR must reach either in-game-year 3018 or a game over, whichever comes first.
  • The contest begins as of midnight on April 22nd, and will end at midnight on May 22nd, 2015.
  • Along with your AAR, you must submit a description of your desired cameo character, including (at a minimum) name, age, gender, culture, ideology, kingdom, and holding type. Provided you meet the requirements above, your character will be added to a future version of CotC as a baron-level ruler.
  • Cameo characters must be lore-appropriate. I reserve the right not to use any cameo character whose name includes the string xX_
  • New dynasties for your character are fine, new cultures or religions are not. Sorry. Try to fit them into the existing framework as best as you can.

I'm looking forward to seeing what all of you can come up with!

Hello i want to make a mod in this time period 1066 bc - 400 ad (1066 -2466).It will be about the ancient period, about europe, middle east, india and russia in that period.New events like the end of the myceneaen civilization , rise of persia , rise of rome , jesus in judea , rise of christianity , rome in decline countries new decisions (exemple hold olympiad) new laws new religions new cultures , new cb system , new gfx and more.Right now i am working at the first bookmark (The end of the myceneaen greece) .Not many are know about that times but possibel the myceneaens were dystroyed by the dorians and the ionians in an ivasion.Anyway the assyrians and the egypteans ( under the 21st dynasty) dominatedthe eeast.The hittites are now more and the phoenicians are expanding.Israel was ruled by the greatest king , David and is in a golden age.When the mod is 50% ready i will post it.

need a bit of help with modding... how to turn the time system from crusader kings 2 closer to the one of hearts of iron series... I am making a gangster/mafia mod and several hundred years seems too weird for a prohibition setting

Change the date of a bookmark from medieval to hearts of iron (exemple: from 1.1.1066 to 1.1.1950) remember to change other thing to this period. (The bookmark.txt is in common folder)

maybe, just maybe, time is not what you should focus on. maybe,you should focus on decision that can be taken and action that can be made in such a time system. Just try.
