The Victoria 2 Historical Project Mod is an attempt to improve the game Victoria 2: A Heart of Darkness without changing the base game experience too much. Built using parts of the mods NNM and PDM as a base, the main aim is to improve the historicity of the game, including countries, map and pops and to add more historical flavor to the game, while taking into account the plausible historical outcomes and the mod performance. The first release includes a vastly improved country composition and a complete rework of the global slave population. Most countries now have slavery and slaves and the historical number of slaves, as well as their pop composition and religion, was used when available. Future releases plans are to include a serf pop type and reforms to represent it, other meaningful reforms for the time era, dynamic soundtrack for countries/governments/regions and a 1816 (or 1815) start date.

Thank you

I just have two suggestions for upcoming version:

1. When a country goes bankrupt on me i get a CB on it even if i don't select the option to get the money back and thus making that option useless, so please remove getting automatic CB on bankruptcy.

2. Can you add Galicians and Galicia? i was surprised this hasn't been added already.

I concur in regard to Galicia. The Solís Uprising in 1846 appears to be the first major sign of Galician national sentiment, and an intellectual movement to promote the language took off during the 1880s. The Kingdom of Galicia was itself only abolished in 1833.

Noticed a bit of a bug, the event for Romania's independence doesn't seem to fire. I assume it's based off Romania being a substate instead of a puppet. I'm not complaining mind you, makes blobbing into Russia/AH a lot easier, but figured I ought to tell ya.

The greater Iran decision should perhaps give cores on the greatest extend of Persia under Afsharid dynasty about 100 years prior to the game start. Persia should start with cores on Afganistan (as they pressed this claim in 1856).

Thank you for the best mod not for vic ii but for every game I have ever played, the amount of work is amazing and so much historical accuracy, you should have way more downloads and ratings for this masterpiece. And its unbelievable that you consider this 0.3.9 I can't even imagine what would a 1.0.0. be like :D. This is the Meiou and Taxes of vic ii. Do you have any idea when will you get to 1.0.0. and do you have any advice how not to die like Serbia and to turn fascist? I am so excited for your future work, seems like you will gives us vic iii instead of paradox! Best wishes from Serbia and sorry for my english.

Not the developer, but about Serbia. Serbia is small as hell at the start, but you're lucky since Russia has a habit of sphering you and allying you. Use this to your advantage. When the Ottomans are at war with somebody like Egypt or Romania, declare war to take Bosnia. Be sure that Russia will help tho, and if they don't reload a past save game. All you have to do then is avoid Ottoman armies and occupy a few provinces while the Russians do the heavy lifting. You should get Bosnia and maybe Southern Serbia in the peace deal. Do the same for Austria, attack them with Russia when they're at war with France or Prussia. Be more careful with the Austrians though, they're tougher cookies. You should take Vojvodina as with maybe parts of Croatia. From here, you should be good for the game, because you have a good territorial base and have a naval base to establish colonies further.

Thank you so much for the reply, the taking of territories isn't the problem itself, but its holding onto them because be it kebab or schnitzel they will almost insta declare after the truce is over and I'm dead, its a painful cycle of getting and losing territories in the meantime getting plagued by liberals and jabocins even though in history the Serbian people were almost all conservative or reactionary. sometimes its hard to become sphered by Russia.

One major problem with Victoria II, at least from a realism standpoint, is how easy it is for "radical" ideologies to become ascendant in all sorts of societies where it doesn't really make sense for them to become a major force.

For instance, no matter how screwed up Russia becomes it should be basically impossible for Marxists to seize power in the 1880s unless they're receiving inspiration from a Communist-led Germany or something. I can see liberals taking over Russia, or even Narodniks, but not the Russian followers of Marx.

If it's possible there should definitely be better mechanics for the spread of "radical" ideas (from liberalism to communism.)

Shouldn't the U.S.A. gain Alaskan as an accepted culture after acquiring Alaska from Russia? I find it strange that Alaskan is in the same American culture group but is never accepted by the United States.

Oh and one more thing, Gwadar should also be a core of India just like the rest of Baluchistan is.

I agree, seems odd how Dixie and Texan are accepted, but not Alaskan given how many (Despite not all) being protestant and, like you said, being in the American culture group. Maybe they're supposed to represent the Russian settlers though and that's why.

As for Gwadar, seems like an Indian or Pakistani decision to demand Gwadar would make more sense than initially having cores on the province given how the province was heavily Omani/Arab rather than South Asian I believe.

How do I solve the crashing when it hits "processing flags?" if it is to delete the flag cache idk what that is as I can never find it and is it in the mod files or the base games?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

the flag cache for HPM is in Documents/Paradox Interactive/Victoria II/HPM/gfx

Also if it is crashing when it hits 'processing flags' then that means that the game is searching for a flag that isn't in the game files (steam directory/victoria 2/mod/hpm/gfx/flags). So you either deleted some there somehow or you added a new country but didn't add flags for it.

Came here to post an important bug that seems to only occur in this verions (3.9.1).

The bug is simply, farmers/laborers don't actually work (as in they produce no resources). This is happening to me as the Ottomans, though I haven't checked if it is happening to any other nation. So Egypt is producing 0 cotton. And any rubber province produces nothing as well.

And yes, there are actually farmers there. I tried encouraging farmers...But that does nothing.

Few suggestions:

1. Adding Ulster
I notice that if you release Ireland as the U.K, the Brits there start assimilating. I don't feel this is an issue for Leinster, Munster and Connacht, but I feel like there should be an Ulster nation in Ulster State to prevent British assimilation there if Ireland is released.

2. Greater Belgium
A decision for Belgium, if they're a Great Power, have Nationalism and Imperialism, don't own Limburg and Luxembourg, an Absolute Monarchy or a Fascist Dictatorship, and if the Dutch aren't great powers, to break the Treaty of London and re-gain cores on Limburg and Luxembourg at the expense of 10 infamy and -100 relations with all Great Powers and -400 with Netherlands could be a good idea. Another decision which only appears if Belgium is a Great Power, owns Limburg and Luxembourg, is an Absolute Monarchy or a Fascist Dictatorship, has Nationalism and Imperialism and has more than 100 prestige would give Belgium cores on Artois, Zeeland and Eupen-Malmedy would also be nice.

3. Break the Treaty of Kiel
A decision for Denmark to break the Treaty of Kiel which ended the Napoleonic Wars and had Norway separate off Denmark. Denmark, if they're an Absolute Monarchy, have more prestige than 100, own Schleswig state, have Nationalism and Imperialism, and are a Great Power, will get cores on all of Norway at the expense of 5 infamy and -200 relations with the Great Powers and the Scandinavian nations.

4. Unite Nigeria
An option for the Nigerian states of Oyo, Aro, Calabar, Benin and Warri to choose to become Nigeria and gain cores on all of what is now Nigeria, along with accepted cultures. Sokoto would get a similar decision, only instead of becoming Nigeria, they just gain cores on all of Nigeria (Like the Mughals with India).

5. Romania
I'm thinking of an addition for Romania, given how, along with Germany and Italy, they were one of the important national unifications of the period. I think that, upon becoming Romania, there should be a decision called 'Alexandru Ioan Cuza's Reforms'
Prerequisites: Have State and Government, Own Iasi, Own Bucharest
Results: Slavery is abolished, Debtor's Prison selected as Bankruptcy Reform, Voting becomes Wealth, Political Parties becomes Gerrymandering, Press becomes Censored Press, Basic School System, Romania becomes a Semi-Constitutional Monarchy, and National Value changes to Order

Thanks for reading if you did, love the mod still!

*For the Treaty of Kiel decision, I mean own the two Schleswig provinces Denmark has cores on. This wouldn't include Heligoland.

6. French Irredentism
This decision would be based off the French Revolutionary concept of 'Natural Borders'.

I will say off the bat that the pre-requisites may need to be changed, but the effects should be good.

Decision: Natural Borders
Prerequisites:
-Have invented Nationalism and Imperialism
-Prestige at least 200
-Have invented Romanticism
-Military Score at least 150
-Have Fascist Dictatorship OR Bourgeois Dictatorship and have invented Mass Politics OR Absolute Monarchy and ruling party is conservative and have invented Mass Politics
Effects:
-Flanders: France gains as core
-Wallonia: France gains as core
-Rheinland: France gains as core
-Palatinate: France gains as core
-Zeeland: France gains as core
-Gain 10 prestige
-Gain 20 infamy

Claim the land annexed by Napoleon I
Prerequisites:
-Have invented Mass Politics
-Have prestige of 350
-Have Absolute Monarchy OR Fascist Dictatorship
-Own Maastricht/Limburg
-Own Brussels
-Own Trier
-Own Saarbrucken
-Own Tournai
-Own Nice
-For all core provinces owned by France
Effects:
-Catalonia: France gains as core
-Dalmata: France gains as core
-Istria: France gains as core
-Piedmont: France gains as core
-Tuscany: France gains as core
-Holland: France gains as core
-Friesland: France gains as core
-Gain core on Parma
-Gain core on Rome
-Gain core on Viterbo
-Gain core on Nordhorn
-Gain core on Emden
-Gain core on Bremen
-Gain core on Oldenburg
-Gain core on Cloppenburg
-Gain core on Lingen
-Gain core on Hamburg
-Gain 50 prestige
-Gain 25 infamy

These may sound extreme, but it's based off what Napoleon annexed during his wars. Changing the pre-requisites and some cores to make them a little less OP would probably be in order though.

I also recommend having it be so France is renamed 'The French Empire' when it's an Absolute Monarchy and maybe a Semi-Constitutional one so as to signify Napoleon III renaming the country the Second French Empire upon becoming Emperor.

I'm having huge coal shortages with this patch, played two games on as Italy and the other as the UK and the same coal shortage happened. Not sure if this is the problem but I did some tag switching and Russia, Austria, America, France and Japan are all on metallurgy 1850 tech when it's the 1910s. Never had this problem on past patches so....

Yes it happens a lot now :/, probably something to do with new AI research decisions. They seem to favor Army/Culture over everything else now. Russian AI for example almost never research anything in commercial and industry at all entire game.
It could certainly use some tweaking, still it's a bit better than before.

Hi, I've noticed a bug lately with Poland Uprising.
If you, as Russia, release Congress Poland as a vassal (to avoid crisis), and Poland Uprising event did not fire before that, if a CPoland then gets a lot of rebels it may still trigger it.

It causes Congress Poland to lose all cores and declare war on "Poland", which does not exist however.

I love this mod, but as a paraguayan, i find that in vanilla and in this mod paraguay is badly represented. Could you please correct in the next version?

The changes should be these:

geography: paraguay had the size shown in the first map of this page: Histocast.com

The resources paraguay have should be distributed like this, in everything east of the paraguay river and, one third should be cattle, one fourth tobacco, one coal and one iron deposits, the rest just stuff like grain and cotton.

everything west of the paraguay river should be divided in half cattle, half timber.

everything between the bermejo should have one coal, one iron,one the two southest provinces should have timber, and the rest just grain, cattle and cotton.

Population: paraguay should have two accepted cultures, the guarani and the
paraguayan. The guarani should be the majority in the regions between the pilcomayo and paraguay rivers, aswell in the north and west regions at right of the paraguay river. The guarani should have between 10-30% of the pops in the area shown in the map
Pueblosoriginarios.com.
the rest should be paraguayan. the guarani should be animist, the rest catholics.

events: till 1844, it was goberned by an isolationist. represent this as a minumun 35% tariff, max 60% tax,only reactionary party. When the dictator, Jose gaspar rodriguez dies (make an event that kills him of old age have a 40% chance after 1844), an event should fire that turns the country into a democracy and eliminate the max tarif minumun tax. Five years after this, have a event about industrialization, which or gives the country 5 militancy and conciousness to all pops and 20% efficiency increase to factories and 15% cost and build time reduction to factories for 15 years, or 5 less militancy and conciousness to all pops for 20 years. also make some war of the triple alliance events.


Please try to implement these changes when you can.
