Looks like a mod with huge potential, yet I suppose the amount of work required is too much for a single person, maybe even for Paradox. There are hardly any decisions and events, and a lot of research needs to be done. The weirdest thing I noticed is the provinces of China - they have names and regions almost exactly the same as of modern-day China. That's just sooo out of context. Why not just stick to vanilla? Anyway the mod is pretty much unplayable at the moment, but I am looking forward to the updates.

Yep, there is waaay too much to do to for me to be able to ever finish this mod in any reasonable timeframe, that is why this has been in on and off development for almost six years...

Events and decisions that only have a limited effect or provide flavour have not been in focus yet, since they only improve the gameplay of a single nation instead of affecting the entire world. They will come later on when more important things are done. Currently the mod focuses more on expanding and improving/correcting the base game than adding things like flavour!

I do not have access to the census data, nor have I been able to find any good maps of the 1900-1920 administrative divisions for China. For that reason the "modern" (1950-1980) borders were chosen. Since you appear to know about how they should look, please share your sources. If you have a look at vanilla Victoria 2 (and 95%+ of its mods) you'll see that almost all provinces are based on modern borders. The updated provinces are in any case much better than the mess that is vanilla (look at Beijing for example) and that is why they were changed.

It is up to you whether you want to play the mod or not, and if the Chinese provinces make the entire game unplayable for you, then that is fine, even if a tad bit strange!

This is THE authoritative map of late Qing China (in Chinese):

For post-revolution China this wikipedia page is acutally quite useful, see the map on the right side:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beiyang_government
Though I would say most provinces deserve a partition into two or three states given their population and size, for example Yunnan province is actually larger than modern Germany.

I just realised something. You are talking about what China calls provinces, while I am talking about what Victoria 2 calls provinces (i.e. second level administrative divisions.) Hopefully Jerry meant the same thing as me, otherwise my answer is completely irrelevant.

The first level administrative divisions I have access to (thanks for the first link though!) What I need is something similar for the second level administrative divisions!

Ah sorry for the confusion. In that case Guoxue123.com
is actually a collection of Qing-era maps which includes sub-(China's) provincial divisions. The names are all in Chinese but the borders are easily distinguishable, and the first map contains an English legend. Hopefully you can find them helpful.

The Ruhrboom does not trigger. There is a reference to a non existing province id #2561 (Siegburg in vanilla).

Province 2561 does exist it seems, as Marigot (Leeward Islands)

I have not yet found all places the changed provinces are noted, so the information is appreciated! I will fix this in the next version.

You install it the same way as the non-bugtest versions. Delete the old mod folders and extract the .rar into the same place.

When i download the CoE-V0.9-Bugtest.rar it doesn't appear the CoE.mod file, only the CoE folder and the CoEReadme.txt, when i extract the rar file it appears the same CoE folder and readme files, but not the CoE.mod, and when i start the vic2 launcher it doesn't appears in the mod's squares to mark, so i can't play with the mod :S

How i can fix this thing, to let me play the mod? please help me :/

Somehow I missed to include the .mod file in the upload... It's included now.

Note: if there is a problem like this again, you can use the .mod file from previous versions.

How you do form the NGF and later Super Germany on this mod? By 1824 I managed to sphere all North German countries but Luxembourg. Also, I have sphered Schleswig and I have sphered Holstein which is not a puppet of Denmark anymore. Finally I have sphered Hannove, which is also not a puppet of the United Kingdom anymore.

In the released version the German unification is not possible until the 1848 revolutions. This will be removed in the next version, so it is available from the start.
