I based this mod completely off of HPM (V0.4.5/V0.4.6), so most credit goes to its creators, mainly Arkhometa. I also used concepts from GFM and took a few inventions of HMPS, so my thanks also go out to their creators (especially SirRunner and AbrahamLincoln of GFM, also for answering questions on the modding server).

I made this mod to change the game from HPM, specifically to open up more nations to play at the start and weaken the great powers a bit. I changed most aspects of the game, and playing a game should result in a fairly different world at the end of the game from HPM.

I made a lot of additions and changes for the nations I made newly playable from the start, but I didn't neglect the other nations. The highlight is probably the changes to Ireland and the Celtic formable nation :) This mod also includes quite some changes and fixes ‘under the hood’, such as everything regarding pops, some AI behavior (in general and to events) and quite some more!

Also, I barely made the alt history lore, so feel free to think about it during your own games. There is some history in events, if you have any ideas for it you can suggest it and I can probably use it.

Please contact me if you find any bugs, but also for ideas of course, here or on discord (martijnlv40#4980). I hope you enjoy playing!

Lastly, I have listed the credits to music tracks I used in the changelogs!

2) random_list and random are bugged; I changed them, so although chances may now seem weird in the tooltip, it actually better reflects meant chances:
The higher the option is in the list, the higher the actual chance is -so use this to help determine the actual chances in-game. This will make it a lot harder to determine the chances unfortunately, but keep in mind most chances are meant to be the same among all, whatever it may seem.

Changelog for 0.5.1:

- Some buffs on coring provinces:
Added slightly quicker coring of provinces when the militancy is below 1
Removed the slower coring of provinces when the militancy was above 2
Added slightly quicker coring of provinces when crime fighting is above 90%
- Added a modifier that slightly reduces the Great Fire in Hamburg mean time to happen when the crime fighting is below 30%
- Gave the option to The Netherlands to annex Limburg after 1890, even if the North German Federation (or Germany) has not been formed (yet)
- The Egyptian mercenary leader event can now also pop-up for AI if no player is a great power

- Replaced not having any unemployement as a condition for the population growth new national focus to needing less than 4 militancy, as the unemployement did not work properly
- Changed all crime fighting modifiers that required more than 99% crime fighting (which is impossible), to more than 98% (for pops and events)
- Fixed a socialism rising event condition to 10% socialism -this fired when you had at least 5% communist, but only on 20% socialist provinces; so sometimes it has no effect at all
- Fixed the draining Frisian marches (Dutch) event not correctly adding the flag
- Some localisation additions and fixes

Changelog for 0.5.0:

Main stuff:
- Some extra stuff for New England
Added an event for a great power New England that gives them the possibility of coring the Maritimes; has a special assimilation bonus to core the Canadians in the Maritimes (comes out to normal non-new world assimilation)
Added an option for New England after coring New York that ensures they do not need to attack the USA right away (but are likely to do so still)
Removed accepted culture of Yankee from the event; added a special assimilation bonus for New England for Yankees in New York (comes out to normal non-new world assimilation)
- Map changes
Added Bouvet Island, a currently still unhabited, Norwegian island; historically 'annexed' in 1928; added an event to colonise the island as well
Passing the Pyrenees through the middle has been made impassable, also slightly changed one Spanish province's borders to account for that
Visual terrain changes in the Cree Confederacy territory
Changes to Formosa/Taiwan, the eastern province was actually not administered by the Qing until ~1875 (https://www.reddit.com/r/victoria3/comments/umn14k/eastern_taiwan_should_have_a_decentralized_nation/)
The eastern province is now uncolonized, with a life rating of 15
Changed the borders of the three provinces
Added a Formosan culture, replaces the already present Asian Minor pops. I took a few example names from all 16 different tribes; some pop changes as well
Added a event for the Qing to colonize the eastern province (likely to happen the nearer you get to 1885, after that it's free to be colonized ny foreign powers), will happen in about two-thirds of the games
- Changes to the Irish famine
Added a negative modifier for RGO output for the modifier all Irish cores start with
Slightly lowered mean time to happen for the event that kicks off the disaster
Added a slight plurality subtraction for choosing the lightest option to combat the famine
Added a second option to the agitations and emigration events that halves the duration, but costs some money
Added a small cost to the distributing food event
- Rhineland rebalance
Removed cannery factory at start
Switched steel mill and machine parts factories at start to the Rhineland-Palatinate
Changed industrial pops to accomodate the above changes, reduced total amount of industrial pops
'Emigrated' a ~10k South German pops from Kaiserlautern to northern Bavarian provinces
Slightly decreased literacy rates in Kaiserlautern compared to the rest of the Rheinland (to symbolise the fairly recent change in ownership)
Changed Northern Rheinland state 'capital' from Cologne to Aachen
- Some Cree Confederacy changes
Added some more leader names to the Cree culture
Added an event for the Cree Confederacy to colonise a province to the north-west of the nation, if they are at least 45% civilized (province has different terrain as well)
Very slightly increased the chance for the Cree Confederacy in 1838 to create their writing system
Writing system event mean time to happen reduced by every 0.4% intellectuals instead of every 0.8% (total reduction not changed, but is a slight buff)
- National focus changes, including an entirely new (perhaps OP, perhaps too weak) national focus
It increases pop growth by 0.1% monthtly - very unfortunately, it is not possible to use a lower value here...
Big debuffs: -15% throughput for factories and RGOs, and -0.1 prestige and -0.03 research points per province in the state
You unlock it by researching a new invention under the Experimental Psychology technology. This triggers an event which enables the focus (by giving a country flag)
Please let me know how balanced this is, and what you would suggest to change about it! I would really like to keep a version of this in the game, so don't just suggest to remove it
Changed the emigration push national focus from 15% to 20%
Removed the encourage labourers national focus, as it does not work. Use encourage farmers instead! This unfortunately does not show your labourers percentage in the state, and it of course shows the promotion to farmers when checking pop promotion
- New music tracks that can play for the Celtic cultures
- The Butterfly. Kid on the Mountain by Sláinte | Freemusicarchive.org

Changed the interval for modifiers, such as the clergymen/bureaucrats/soldiers promotion that saw an increase every 10% spending, now changed to 5% intervals where possible

Added an event to bourgeois dictatorship to change the nationalvalue to one more fitting for the government style, which can occur to all bourgeois dictatorships, but occurs more often for unsuitable nationalvalues
Slightly changed ideology and issues if the anarcho-liberal party is in power, the government is the bourgeois dictatorship or the country has the modifier (one each; should be small buffs to stability as well)
Small buff to aristocrat promotion (they still need to fulfill original conditions to promote in the first place)
Tiny buff to capitalist promotion
Slightly decreased emigration rates if the pops are 'wealthy' (if can buy most of their requested goods) when the government is a bourgeois dictatorship

- Changed pop promotion to artisans and clerks based on state bureaucrats used to be a small factor increase from 1%/2%/3%/4%/5% bureaucrats presence; now has smaller increments (0,2%) and goes up to 4% bureaucrats (as that is the highest % you can achieve); did not increase the actual factor when at 4% bureaucrats

- Fixed the Treaty of London when Belgium wins not removing all Dutch cores

Changelog for 0.3: (not a proper changelog)

Released new countries at the start: Ireland, Britanny, Corsica, Bohemia-Moravia, Rheinland, Westfalen, Ukraine, New England, Guyana, Ceylon:
- These countries all have their pops, techs, inventions, units and anything else tweaked accordingly and I added a lot of flavour in events and decisions which I will not list

More secondary powers: To accommodate having quite a few new potential or starting secondary powers, I increased the possible secondary powers from 8 to 10 (so up to rank 18)

Indian changes: Released a lot of provinces to Indian uncivs and tweaked the UK's spheres and alliances there as well

Changes/additions in provinces and regions:

Added over two dozen new provinces, highlights:
- Splitted the Ceylon coast amongst six colonisers
- Madagaskar now has two settled treaty port provinces
- Although the projection is off, added a few islands near Arctica and Antartica, which will be settled using events (after they have been discovered)
- Readded Jan Mayen and its easter egg (incorporated it in what I mentioned above)
- Some historical changes or additions that play into other changes, namely in Ireland, Zeelandic Flanders and in Artois (also: gave Belgium half of Artois and made changes and additions around that)
- Many more for flavour reasons

Changed some regions/states across the globe

Tweaked a lot of terrain and province borders, based on historical maps (notable: Ireland, Brittany and The Netherlands)

Reworked the Irish Famine completely, this includes events and pops balancement; I still wanted some form of this event in-game for balance and gameplay reasons, but I am aware it's fairly unlikely that without the British rule the famine would have occured at all.

Two new countries:

Added a Celtic country, which unifies the traditional six Celtic nations

Added a primitive country in Canada at the start, the Cree Confederacy; this is not based in history, and I could not find much information on such a potential country, so it's really made free-form

Added new terrain for flavour modifiers:
- Artisinal City
- The Nile
- The Nile Delta
- Himalaya
- Research Outpost
- Istanbul
- Rome
- Jerusalem
- Stonehenge
- The Pyramids
- The Taj Mahal

Added many cultures:
- Welsh
- Cornish
- Manx
- New Zealander
- Sardinian
- Sicilian
- Corsican
- Prussian
- Montenegrin
- Galician
- Frisian
- Savoyard
- Swiss German
- Swiss French
- Swiss Italian
- Romansh
- Luri
- Anglo American (New Englander)
- Implemented Occitan and Scottish cultures

Added a small flavour modifier for every religion; so every country has a small modifier based on its state religion.

Added three religions, implemented two:
- Totemist
- Druidic
- (Anglican; cannot find enough information about its spread)

Added a new issue: neutral stance on the military; implemented it across parties and gave it an associated event

Reduced the add wargoal jingoism requirement to 6,5% from 7,0% (HPM value) as a new issue is introduced

Weighted Universal Voting now has the same weight between middle and upper classes (just as Weighted Wealth Voting does)

Added a new national value: bureaucracy; implemented it across countries and gave it associated events; also made the national value matter in across the game (the same also goes for the productivity national value); by this I mean the value influences a bit more factors such as ideology or promotion.

Added new inventions; the italic inventions are taken from the HPMS mod. The inventions mostly concern pop growth and surrounding flavour for specific nations or cultures (you can probably guess which by the name):
- Contraception
- Factory Employment
- Women in the Workforce
- Popular Prophylactics
- Late Marriage
- Birth Rates Fall
- Improved Saw Grinding
- Portuguese Settlers
- Scandinavian Schools
- Blitzkrieg
- Old Kaffee
- Swiss Direct Democracy
- Luxembourgian Steel
- Streamlining Old Processes
- Artisan Proficiency

Reduced pop growth as the game progresses (max: -0,13%), this is done based on:
- Inventions that unlock at certain techs (partial credit to Townes of the HMPS mod)
- Combination of year and literacy, with one modifier being dependent on your continent. This comes down to having a higher literacy later in the game gives you reduced pop growth

Reduced education efficiency at high literacy rates (max: -30%, at 95% literacy)

Improved Artisan efficiency to better keep up during the game, using inventions, terrain and a modifier in infrastructure (railroads). This is most likely not working (bugged in the game)

Tweaked triggers for crime and implemented not-used HPM crimes (Sicilian Maffia, Instigators, Kleptocrats)

Many new events that don't directly surround the new content

Many new decisions that don't directly surround the new content

Changed when music tracks play, to better mimic the situation in which you currently play:
- Some tracks are played more often when certain conditions are met, such as when you are at war, are fighting rebels, the CSA exists, etc.
- Added three tracks (so far), two to give flavour to Africa, one for Asia.
- With this I am afraid of specifically offending someone, so please let me know if you find the music to be too stereotypical or have any other complaints
- Royalty free, instrumental, general relaxing music in some spirit of the game is pretty hard to find without going into specific countries (which I do not want to do), so it would be much appreciated if you have certain music that fits regions/cultures.
- Credits for the music are at the bottom

Tweaked factory build time and some consumption rates of units, including adding some factories at the start to accommodate

Rebalanced promotion, ideology and issues for all pop types, to give some more effect to how your population is distributed and some differences in general

Rebalanced migration:
- Reduced emigration to the New World by a bit, most emigration should still go to the New World
- Made cultures, sphere and if the countries are neighbours (more) important

A little bit more infamy reduction for uncivs (-0,15 when not at war, -0,05 when at war)

Messed with a lot of other stuff, including life rating changes across the globe, the defines file, starting conditions (pops, army, alliances, etc.) and changing events/decisions already present to accommodate the changes I made

Fixed some mistakes (in my mind) in HPM stuff

random_list and random are bugged, so although chances may now seem weird in the tooltip, it actually better reflects meant chances:
- The higher the option is in the list, the higher the actual chance is -so use this to help determine the actual chances in-game

Do I understand correctly that you want a Spanish translation and someone did that already? Where can I find it? I couldn’t find it using Google, but I’d be happy to oblige.

I see the first people have downloaded the mod, I hope you guys will enjoy it.
Again, if you find anything faulty (I'm very afraid of crashes :)), please report them and try to give some context so I can fix it!
