The original crew won't maintain this mod anymore in the near future. They are busy creating the INJ 2 for M&B 2.

So, whenever I start this mod it loads textures for like 5-7 minutes. That is insane. Any fix for the insane load times? Starting a new campaign also loads for an insane amount of time

Algumas dicas para futuras atualizações:

Mais importantes:
--- Resolver o problema do Império Espanhol e Português de ter que viajar distâncias longas para se defender na Europa e América, o melhor seria fazer das colonias na América um Ducado da Espanha/Portugal separado com seus próprios lordes assim poderiam focar na América enquanto a Espanha e Portugal foca na Europa
--- Corrigir as guerras aleatórias que ocorre no mod, um país no fim da Ásia declara guerra contra um país da Europa no outro lado do mundo
--- Mais opções do mod Diplomacy como convencer o Rei da declarar guerra ou trégua com um reino, devolver ou trocar de feudos, organizar patrulhas em volta de seus feudos, sair do reino e continuar com os feudos

Não tão importantes mas que deixaria mais divertido:
--- Por ser a época de surgimento do protestantismo e da igreja da inglaterra e ser um mod com tantas culturas poderia ter um mecanismo de religiões parecido com Viking Conquest
--- Tribos nomadicas da Rússia (Khanato da Sibéria que inclui povos turcos, mongóis e Tátaros)
--- Tribos nomadicas do Cáucaso, uma região que ta vazia no mapa (Horda Nogai, Khanato de Avar, Chechenos e Kalmyks, nesse caso seria mais interessante incorporar as quatro em uma só facção)
