It is usually at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Victoria 2 *Drag and drop all the contents of "The States of North America" (except the picture) into the "mod" (create one if there isn't a "mod" folder already) *You are done installing the base mod.

Bugs and Fixes

*There is a bug that jumbles the flags around. For example, the UK will now have Russia's flag. To fix this, please resort to this link. If the steps in the link don't work, please send me a message and I will try to help ( Forum.paradoxplaza.com ). For my version, I usually move all the flags from the SA directory (usually located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Victoria 2\mod\SA\gfx\flags) into another folder. I then startup the game. The game will crash. Then, I move all the flags back into the SA directory.

*Another bug is during installation. The game will crash when loading flags. This method works for me every time (only god knows why this method works though). For now we will pretend their are two mod folders. Mod folder A will be the one that is installed into the Victoria 2 directory. Mod Folder B will be a copy of the mod that isn't installed. Take all the flags from mod folder A (usually located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Victoria 2\mod\SA\gfx\flags) and delete them. Then take all the flags in Mod Folder B and move them into the flags folder ( The folder where you just deleted the flags from). This should fix the mod. It's complicated because it makes no since on how it works. It just does. Please contact me if you need help.

*To fix the crash at map properly initialized, delete all folders in the SA mod file EXCEPT FOR common, gfx, history, and localization. This worked for me on an entirely new computer. I hope it fixes it because it used to never crash there and I really don't know why it does.

The Backstory and Credits of the Mod

Originally, this mod did not feature Australia or Canada. I planned on letting this mod sit and never work on it again. One day, I was checking on the mod, and someone recommend that I add Canada and Australia. I thought it was an excellent idea. To be frank ,I wanted to add the countries, but didn't want to go through the tedious coding and the likes. Six months later, however, I finally decided to do it. I had a great time making the mod, completely different then what I thought I would have. The main reason I decided to revive the mod in the first place was for the support I got. I know this mod isn't necessarily popular, but it got a lot more attention than I thought it would. I want to thank everyone for contributing to the mod, whether it be just downloading the mod, or commenting that you enjoyed it. I never planned to release the mod in the first place, but I knew that people may want independent provinces just like I did, so I released it.

A thing I ran into while developing the mod was the fact that islands were missing. I love this game, and am not accusing the developers of "cutting corners", I am just addressing the fact that I know a few of the Australian territories are missing, and that is why.

If you enjoyed the mod, or have any new recommendations, please like and share. It means a lot. Thank you all for visiting and downloading the mod.

This free add-on splits up Canada and Australia. I decided not to add this to the main mod, in case someone doesn't want them split up. Thanks to Jared8Wally...

I have seen this happen in a few mods. I never can figure out how to fix it myself. :s
