    Still failing to balance out the economy in EU3.
    Adopt the National Bank NI and save up enough cultural tradition to get a 5 - 6 star Master of Mint, they do a damn good job at assuring your economy will remain in good standing. Also, probably a no-brainer but make sure you decrease army and navy maintenance sliders down a notch so they aren't putting a strain on your economy during peace time.

    Does anyone know of a mod for HOI: Darkest Hour that gives specialized infantry unit sprites for various countries? (Like the normal game does with planes and tanks)

    I've just gotten used to Vicky2's units and how each country's units are different (If only via palette swap)\

    Also, as for the alien invasion situation: I switched over my side to the aliens, declared war on everybody (Right in the middle of WWI). I then switched back to playing as the UK.

    Big mistake. Nukes were going off everywhere, India was invaded, and the AI singled me out as a really strong power and personally blew me to shreds with flying saucers. (Okay, the were planes since the game doesn't have specialized airplane sprites for aliens). Because of the devestation and war exhaustion, my populace revolted. Now we are a Shattered Kingdom, with Scotland, Ireland, and England all independent. My colonies soon fell.

    The same happened to Germany, who promptly surrendered. Austria and Hungary soon followed in suite. Now the Ottomans are still at war with the UK but the aliens are invading them from the North and France is in revolt.

    Now I'm playing as the USA, the last free bastion of humanity!

    It's an easter egg.

    In HOI2 or any mods/addons, type "Alienattack [province number]" into the console. (You have to replace [province number] with the number of a province, of course. I usually use 1177 to make them start in Siberia and work their way to major population centers so nobody sees it coming. Just be careful, they have the same stats as fully upgraded infantry/vehichles, making them damn near impossible to kill without equivalents.)

    Any update on a unit mod?

    This is what happens when an idiot is elected Emperor: half the bloody Empire revolts! I spent a lot of money defeating all of them but I managed to snag a duchy I had a claim on.

    I used to get into Europa Universalis 3, but I got burned out on that game after playing it alot, expecially on mods like MEIOU, Death and Taxes, and other mods. Now it just don't feel much interesting. I also tried other games like Hearts of Iron 3, and since finally my armies can be AI able, for some reason they don't go over seas at all to defect what's left of the enemy in other continents. I've played Poland, Germany declared war against me and my army wiped them out and italy, but italy still got territory in africa, I built transport ships yet they won't even board and go over there.

    I can't even begin to express how incredibly difficult it was at first to beat the Hondurans into submission because of the mountainous terrain and rivers. I made the crucial mistake of not getting at least some mountaineer divisions up before I commenced the invasion, but it all worked out smoothly once I was able to annex El Salvador.

    Fuck yeah my Zulu nation just took on several empires and won.

    Mobilising 70 brigades felt good.

    Chinese peasant armies are fun to stomp.

    I notice that the difficulty level has drastically been lifted with the new expansion. At first I could take over life half of Africa and the middle east with Oranje, becoming a super power within 50 years. And now whatever I do I get stuck trying the same thing with South Africa.

    What benefits does duchies bring? In CK2.

    I just have a basic idea of how the feudal system works so I probably miss the whole point of this game.

    Slavery was very prevalent in Norway. Some historians have estimated that every fifth to every third person in Norway was a slave in the early middle ages.

    Zerg rushed Transvaal, then I got lucky with hammering with Portuguese to the north and keep taking over their shit.

    Then I just turtled to fuck and around 1915 I was only a couple countries off being a secondary power. Time to start humiliating the ones above me to take their places.

    War diplomacy is weird in CK2... I got pulled into 2 wars because of my liege (Antioch) being retarded and rebelling against the Byz Emperor by himself and my solution was to declare war on him which then to my surprise cancelled both of those wars. And then suddenly because he got thrashed by the empire, we were both reabsorbed and then the Shia->Antioch war was cancelled along with my own war against him because he was no longer independent?
    My assumption was that I would have remained independent or the war leadership against the Shia would have switched to the Emperor

    In Victoria 2 as Finland, Chile got about 4 million immigrants in the space of 50 years.

    They then took over the entire New World.
