This version fixes a crash issue caused by ghost ships (will only work if you start a new campaign), adds a little bit of flavour, let's you destroy the palace of westminster and the reichstag (causing quite a decent bit of damage to the provinces), fixes a few bugs, makes the irish potato blight a bit more devastating, and makes italy do a bit better. Also made a few changes to what authoritarian ai's do (now they close borders and revoke the geneva convention) and gave a small buff to uncivs and laissez faire ai's by setting their minimum tariffs to 10% (the ai basically never uses tariffs), hopefully helping those countries not suffer as much. There was also some changes to russia, making their historical cities start with a bit higher literacy and 36 liferating, hopefully turning them into small industrial islands in the empire. They also get baltic german general surnames now, based on historical napoleonic war and ww1 surnames of officer
doing nothing in the rhine crisis no longer gives infamy
further adjustments to the german dynamic
slighty raised the desired artillery limit for the ai
the player's minimum land and naval maintenence spending is now as high as the ai's (30%)
scandinavia should now get some swedish, norwegian and danish flavour events
added flavour events to england from hfm, about the death of queen victoria (which has been modified to lower relations with germany) and the battle of rorke's drift.
added the decisions to build and to destroy the big ben, albeit modified
added a decision to japan from hfm
added a flavour event to russia from hfm
added some persian events and decisions from hfm. changed the new capital event a bit to have a more lasting effect
added decisions to rename stuff to soviet names from HFM
added some siam decisions from hfm
added a flavour decision to the turks from HFM
added a decision to build and to destroy the reichstag
the italian minors now lose cores on italy the moment it forms, preventing italy from just being forced to release countries by austria or france the moment it comes to life
you now need nationalism & imperialism to create the italian confederation as a puppet
modified what destroying the eifel tower and the statue of liberty does, making it now add a modifier to the province
added a flavour event to austria from hfm, about the abdication of Ferdinand I, which is now a requirement for the bach years event to frie.
byzantium and the roman empire now also get a special invitation for the first olympic games, not only greece
more rgo changes
ai japan will now sometimes leave it's capital in kyoto. also, kyoto or tokyo now get 50 liferating rather than 45 after becoming the capital.
seattle now gets a bonus to pop growth when the klondike gold rush happens in canada
hopefully austria now tries taking silesia from prussia
nikolaev now has more jews at game start
the russian cities of odessa, kiev, st peterburg, ekaterinoslav, minsk, astrakhan, nikolaev and moscow now start with a bit higher literacy. hopefully they should become small industrial islands in the russian empire until they raise the country-wide literacy
austria hungary can no longer accept polish culture because it makes no sense. now if you want to do that, form the danubian fed
reduced event spam a bit further
small changes to the war of italian independence stuff
sardinia now starts with investments in the north italian minors and two sicily on the pope, to help them if they end up becoming gps
changes to the alternative american civil war, hopefully giving the FSA less cores when they revolt and less cores after they revolt. maybe the US will actually win it every once in a while now
communism should be enabled in the 1870's more regularly now
it's now easier to get the french comune event
australia and canada should now become dominions a few years earlier. new zealand should now become a dominion 10 years earlier. this is because the UK loves leaving a lot of troops in those colonies, making them weaker, and also to give those countries some more time to develop.
pop changes, adding more west slavs minors to pomerania, more north german aristocrats to russia, a bit more french in saarbruck and made aosta easier to assimilate to north italian
laissez faire ai's and uncivilized ai's now get a minimum of 10% tariffs, this is to offset the fact that the AI almost never uses tariffs and that otherwise these countries can't really support themselves. this does not apply to countries such as the UK, france and Germany past the year 1850, because they do not need the tariffs to support their economy.
fixed some bugs
you can now take the unity NV if you're communist or fascist from the equality NV. also slighty buffed the fraternity NV
fixed the event that gets rid of capitalists and aristocrats when you're communism, it should now fire more reliably
further improvements to expelling the manchus from outer manchuria
french language schooling should remove wallon cores in all cases now. this is because the walloons killed their own culture, so if they can do it themselves so can france. east britanny now loses all britanny cores, and also added some partial french pops in occitan provinces to aid assimilation after the decision is taken
rome, turin, milan and naples now have 40 liferating at game start, because the italian pop growth was previously too low compared to other countries
authoritarian ai's now close their borders unless they're a monarchy. now if you're the US you better install democracies if you want those pops
small changes to the starting clergymen in some south american regions
argentina and uruguay now start with a bit higher literacy
rubber should now first appear in the amazon, appearing in the other regions of the world a bit later
the cheap steel tech is now less garbage (stole a bit of the effects and 1 invention from cheap iron and transfered it over)
withdrawing signature from the geneva convention now costs less infamy. the AI can now withdraw from the geneva convention
the ai will no longer sign the geneva convention if they're not a hms government or democracy
if the US becomes a dictatorship and re-instates slavery they should be more resistant to abolishing it
the turks should now always make albania a puppet via event if they don't own eastern macedonia and eastern rumelia (aka no land path there)
changed the requirements for the boulanger coup and the ai_will_do chance so that it actually happens every once in a while
more irish should emigrate over time now, and the potato famine should be heavier
the UK's militancy reduction for non-colonial pops is now a bit lower
dragoons now have -1 defence, but +1 reconaissance. now they are an attack version of the hussar, like guards and stormtroopers
lowered the build time of every factory to 300 days. this is because as was previously, the ai just got too much unemployment late game once one or two of their highest level factories went bankrupt.
countries no longer pick the dominion NV if they don't have at least 20 ships
ai no longer adds the cut down to size cb during great wars, leading to great wars having more impact
russia now needs to be disarmed for the pro-west treaty of paris to be able to happen
crisis over kurdistan should happen a bit less often now
west slavs and south slavs now use the same general portraits as russia, instead of the generic european one. albanians now use the same general portrait as the turks.
russia should now get some generals with baltic german surnames
building the canal should now give more money to the previous province owner of the province, although still only 50k. egypt also no longer has to empty their treasury before getting the canal money for some reason
krakow now has a bit lower literacy at game start
countries with less than 20 coastal provinces are now less likely to get naval techs, past steamer transports and level 2 ports.
you can now only liberate & puppet once nationalism & imperialism has been researched
the install friendly monarch and install free market cbs now have new icons
russia now gets a bit more consciousness if they lose the crimean war
the turks now accept tatars at game start. the bessarabian turks are now tatars. now if they decide to retake their historical lands in southern ukraine and the northern caucasus they have a few accepted pops, and the gagauz in romania, bulgaria and bessarabia will be accepted
there is now an event that makes ai proleterian dictatorships or fascist dictatorships get the correct ruling party in case they don't have it.
portugal now starts in the british sphere
fixed a stupid localization that said the gauche buffon was of the royal family
added a canned food factory and some crafsmen to cincinnati to represent how they are famous for being the pork processing capital of the US at the time.
it now takes longer to justify the install government cbs
the event you get about abolishing slavery or getting the mass labour modifier should now happen in 1890, and the ai weight has been changed. now the americas should abolish slavery a bit sooner
enforcing communism or democracy in a country should now abolish slavery in all cases
the ai should care a lot less about the military score of each side when considering if they should make peace or not
increased assimilation rate in the americas a bit because i think it'll improve game performance. it's still not as fast as before but it should be a decent amount faster
fixed a crash bug that was caused by ai creating ghost fleets. this fix will only apply if you start a new game though
the channel isles are no longer connected to normandy via strait. now the only strait is dunkirk
reforming the kalmar union no longer needs good relations with finland, so that maybe ai sweden actually manages to do it now
