Hello everyone. Just wanted to let you know I'm going to be releasing a new version of your favourite Victoria 2 mod soon and discuss a few things.

I wasn't able to put nearly as much work as I wanted into this but I was still able to considerably improve the mod. For starters, if you know the mod's history you'll know that it went through a strange phase and many hands, and so when I was allowed to start development the latest version I could find was a complete mess with mainly ridiculous additions and absurd omissions (kawaii events, distorted population numbers, removal of certain features like nuclear war, strange localisation entries (Great Britannia? United State of Alama?? Apache League of the Red Star??) etc.).

So you'll be glad to know that's all mostly fixed. I'm also getting rid of the space element, which let's be frank, is not ever going to be properly implemented and only serves as a distraction from more important issues. My aim overrall is to make the mod more compact and bring features together cohesively. For instance, since there's no way the AI will ever be able to use new units properly I'm also getting rid of most of them to instead focus on the armed forces' evolution throughout the years, which will be reflected in stats rather than unit types. For example, infantry in the 1800s would be the line infantry whereas guards would be perhaps big bulky grenadiers. Jump 200 years into the future and infantry will be assumed to be your regular army grunts and guards will be your marines and/or special ops. The change will be done through research improving units stats instead of unlocking new units. I may still keep transport planes and submarines.

The pre-industrial era scenarios will also be put on standby for the moment in order to concentrate on the modern era.

I'd also like to thank you all very much for your patience and support. I hope you'll enjoy the new release. Thank you! And more to come.

PS: I encourage the community to use the forums to share suggestions, feedback, questions and to report problems with the mod.

So is there an updated version out there, or not? Also does anyone remember the event where america gets George Zimmerman VS Trayvon Martin where america gets militancy in Florida, or something like. Maybe that's the "racism" they were talking about?

Doubtful, the (accurate) representation of slavery in early scenarios and the inclusion of islamic radicals in modern scenarios are much more likely to be the cause. With that said they didn't provide us with concrete examples and we certainly didn't go out of our ways to make racist content. Seems like an abuse of the term from an overtly sensitive Swedish corporation.

Was an important legal case in American history that led to a good deal of tensions in Florida. Were we still operating we'd be covering Black Lives Matter, the Milwaukee riots etc. Nothing racist about that.

And can't you contact Paradox and question them about what they claim is racist in your mod? To me, it sounds like a total waste of time if you just left it at that and didn't bother asking them why they are preventing you from releasing your mod into the public.

Paradox Interactive really need to grow some balls and stop being so uptight about political correctness. It's embarrassing and stupid.

Can someone say if the devs of the mod are going to re-release the mod after removing the "racism" or are they just going to be stubborn and leave it at that and have no ultimate mod?

We can't release anything. Although apparently there's fan-made offshoots popping up here and there.

Can you just post a clear explanation of what happened? Did Paradox ask you to? Can you just take out whatever was racist?

Amazing mod! 10/10! However it is lacking features, I feel obligated to give it a perfect score as it is only in beta and more features are coming, which is shocking because there is so much already.

I highly recommend this mod, and may I add, the game engine works beautifully with the 2000 start date

Victoria Ultimate currently adds a lot of new stuff to victoria 2 which it does well however the state of the economy in the mod is horrid making the mod worthless despite all its other great features the mod is currently only in beta but still the economy ruins everything else. I would suggest waiting a while before getting the mod as the devs promise a fix for the economy in the coming updates or so
