The Grand Combination

This mod is an attempt to merge all the various disparate HFM and HPM based submods into a single modding experience, with a goal to improve historical accuracy and detail and add plausible alt history paths and flavor to all nations.

Installation Instructions

  1. To get the latest version, click the green button that says "Code" and click "Download ZIP". warning: read below
  • BEWARE: There is a chance that due to the sheer number of files, Github Browser zipping process can corrupt your download, therefore the mod might not work for you. If that happens, follow instructions below on how to download the mod (its very latest version) via Github Desktop app or download the zip from latest pre-packed release (usually somewhat outdated).
  • Fresh off the press version: You can use the GitHub Desktop application. This is slightly more complicated but preferable since downloading the zip through the browser can lead to corrupted files being downloaded which can cause the game to crash. For instructions on this go to the #install-instructions channel on the Discord.
  • Slightly stale: Stable pre-packed zip releases: Github.com
  1. Go to the mod folder in your Victoria 2 install directory.
  • If you got the Steam version on Windows this will look something like C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Victoria 2/mod
  • If you got a non-Steam version on Windows it might be something like C:/Program Files (x86)/Paradox Interactive/Victoria 2/mod
  1. Delete the old versions of the mods, if you have any.
  2. From the ZIP move everything into the mod folder.
  3. Start the game, select 'The Grand Combination'.
  4. We have three submods (Custom State Mechanics, Different Culture Colours (HFM), Country Endonyms).
  5. If you like to spice up your game with your favourite graphic submod, it will likely not work properly on TGC, as this mod has an entirely new map. But, fear not, as we have tailored some looks from two popular submods and adjusted them for TGC PastelThickBorders and BelleCartographieTGC
  6. Enjoy.

Hello!

I apologize to everyone who has tried this mod by downloading it here, but this version is broken and since we're still in active development, we're now using GitHub to host the latest version. You can download it here:

Github.com

When we get to a point that we feel it's unbuggy enough to release playable, we'll do so here as well!

Thanks!

Derek

On the github version: I suggest assimilation is reduced. Its definitely necessary to have assimilation but not to the point that Belize, South Africa, the Bahamas and Guyana are fully British. It could also be colonial migrations causing this, but the southern states quickly become Yankee as well. (Perhaps afro-american pops are being assimilated?)

Also a question: Is there supposed to be a country in that empty part of Algeria?
