Yes, it's in the right folder I played a full game from Thuringii up to HRE but I started a new game as Essex and have only gotten to shy of 600 AD and the game keeps randomly going unresponsive indefinitely

Grand Strategy games are historical simulators. They have a fixed starting map or starting maps (if multiple start dates are available) and are not intended to be balanced. Success is achieved not by world conquest / extermination but by national prosperity and achieving a successful or dominant position in one's region - the exact definition of success varies from time period to time period.

A 4X basically has a random or semi-random map, everyone starts out on generally equal footing with most of the map unclaimed and uncharted territory. They then try to expand and kill each other as fast as possible. The game is generally intended to be balanced.

Brandon Edwards

gsg are 4x games with a serious case of historical roleplaying and simulation(playing withing the limitations of different factions)
4x is just fungal growth into unknown not that it's bad

Repostan from last thread since that one isded. For the user who proposed Cascadia.

This has been proposed before, and I said I'd add it to the to-do list. I think it's time to actually do it now since I have a few ideas for this & Hawaii.
But I'm gonna need more insight on what to do.
Perhaps in the 1836 start, Oregon state and Boise Idaho could be part of the Astorian/Oregon state, which would be an independent state under the influence of the USA. After the Oregon treaty in the 1840's, you could be given the choice to either remain independent, become part of the USA or the HBC.

If your choice were to become part of the USA, the country would first become a vassal (since there are no tags/modifiers to become a substate in the code) and by decision, become the State of Jefferson, which would remain a vassal or plain old annexation (AI would have something like 30% chance of forming the vassal State of Jefferson)

If your choice were to become independent, the HBC would grant you (Very reluctantly) the lands between the 42°N and the 54°40'N latitudes (Basically Hongcouver), but you'd be on your own, Britain would hate your guts and the French wouldn't care a bit about your existence. Your only options would be Russia or Mexico, and if you are to ally the USA, you're basically fucked after manifest destiny if you're not under the protection of another GP, as it is with Texas.

The borders you're proposing seem alright, but I'd have to make/edit a shitton of provinces, so for simplicity's sake, I think pic related borders borders would be more fitting since most are already in-game (I'd have to make about ~6 new provinces for the stuff I'm thinking about, which is a lot of provinces IMO), so 4 of these new provinces would be for the proposed Jefferson State, which should happen after the USA annexes that shitton of Mexican clay. I could also add a new irredentist decision to annex Alaska and form Greater Cascadia or whatever and MAYBE I could add a new culture to the area, Cascadian, as to represent the many immigrants which came from mainland USA and Canada, them being Yankees doesn't really fit the whole Cascadian theme. Maybe also a Californian culture for California in order to replace the current Yankees, that's kinda dumb. But for this I'd have to remove some of the stupid, useless black African cultures literally nobody gives a shit about

The other stuff I'm thinking about is a small overhaul for Hawaii, give em a little bit more flavor, 2 more provinces (Maui and Kauai) and the Paniolos, which are Hawaiian Cowboys from California (tradegood changes from fish to cattle in Hawaii Island)

So im Trying to get into Aurora 4x, and my autism is very pleased with the ship design, and even the interface. Hell even I see it easy to play on the start, just have to look how everything works in the wiki.

But between the 30000km/s missiles on the start, and people saying Distant Worlds is better, im not sure if i should keep playing this.
Is there a lot of difference between them? Wont Distant world be worse for playing in my toaster laptop?

I just want comfy xeno purgin', thats all…

Jeremiah King

Can anyone here honestly say they enjoy wasting an hour to fix their OoB every time they start a game of HoI3?
You don't NEED an OoB, and it certainly takes less much less than an hour to make one. Maybe 10 mins if you are playing as the Soviets.

Not to mention that, rather than needing to tediously micromanage industry like in other HoI games, HoI4's industry is both streamlined as well as more intuitive than the previous games.
It's way worse user. In HoI3 you set your IC distribution to automatic and put whatever you want on the queue. Done. In HoI4 you manually assign every single factory and need to mathematically calculate out how many factories to put on each thing to give you the correct ratio of equipment for your divisions. Tedious bullshit.

I like it.
Although, Having the Oregon State independent, under the influence of the US at first wouldn't really make sense. If anything, it was more HBC-influenced than American-influenced at first, but steadily became more American-influenced through the years.
The Treaty of 1818 gave both Britain and the US "joint control" of the area, and it would be contested by both since.
Americans called it Oregon Territory, British called it Columbia. I'd suggest making the entire territory, from 42° to 54°40'N contested land. Like this, there's no reason for HBC to "give" land up.
In 1843, though, the Provisional Government of Oregon was finally formed, as the settlers from both US and HBC sought to take administration into their own hands. This is when it could be considered an independent country, but considering it's options to join the US.
Making the land just uninhabitable or already owned by Britain until then is just laziness on Paradox's part. How you would make it like a "joint occupation", I don't know, but I'd have an event fire to form the nation of Oregon Country on July 5, 1843 which has a choice of either being a vassal of the US, or independent. If vassal, it becomes the Oregon Territory and the Oregon Treaty event in 1846 would obviously simply divide the lands at the 49° as usual, and maybe you could make Columbia annexed by HBC at this time.

The Rockies were always seen as the territory's boundaries, so make sure to include all provinces west of them as at least cores. Everything in pic 1 should be cores at the outset.
And by the way, the capital of the Provisional Government was called Oregon City. Not Portland.

As far as flags, Oregon has a beaver on the back side of it's state flag you can use. The Provisional Government even issued Beaver Coins shortly before it was disbanded, so it's liable for the Beaver to be the national symbol for a time. Then, there's the commonly known Cascadia Doug flag. And then there's several ideas for NatSoc flags, notably the tricolor chosen by the Northwest front. Here's a swastika that I've seen shooped on the flag at one point, though I don't have the image myself. How many/what kinds of flags do you need?

Here's also the state seal of the Provisional Government, seal of the Oregon Territory after 1848, when it became a defacto part of the US, and the original Oregon Coat of Arms.

I enjoy both but I'd recommend Distant Worlds overall. You don't get the autistic joy of fiddling with your missiles until they explode xenos just the way you like, but I feel DW's got a little more going on grand strategy-wise than Aurora which pushes it over the edge.

Ethan Roberts

Distant Worlds has the benefits of a graphical interface while not being casualized like Stellaris is and pretty challenging and diverse if you include the myriad of mods.

Jaxson Wilson

Thanks, these are very helpful.
Now about Oregon/Columbia, COL -or Columbia District- has already got cores all over the Cascadian area, what I had in mind was to make it a substate of the HBC -if possible- (HBC would have cores all over the area, but COL would control them) AND have them be under the influence of the USA. Also the USA would have cores all over the Oregon state, just to make things a bit more fucky as to represent the contested territory and USA's extreme territorial claims bordering Alaska (Beyond the 54°40'.)
In 1843 (for whatever reason I still don't know yet, could use a bit more insight) COL changes its tag to ORE, the provisional government of Oregon, AND it'd either be free, a vassal of the USA OR a vassal of the HBC.

If vassal of either, ORE would be split between the USA and HBC in 1846 as per usual, if independent, nothing happens.
An independent ORE would be able to form CSD -or Cascadia- and claim some new Northern Californian provinces I'm going to add (San Buenaventura, Del Norte and Trinity) plus Alaska through an irredentist decision requiring jingoism and military might as part of the requirements.

Any feedback?

I was kind of thinking about this. Why would they implement Tank and Airplane divisions if they're so unrealistically impossible to use within the time frame before the vanilla game's end date? And why won't the combat evolve to trench warfare?
Betcha it's cause it's insensitive and all. Pogroms, discrimination and pollution should be big parts of the game.

I want to see armies function closer to the newer total war games where you can set up a general outline for the armies organization and they will keep themselves roughly in that shape but done in a way that doesn't remove the complexity of army building basically I get really sick of having to shuffle around infantry divisions because of fucking jacobins again. I also want more control over actual engagements than just moving your blob into the same province as the enemy blob, give us some sort of option on how they should engage in the battle so we can do things like sending a pure cavalry force to do something like raid supply lines giving the enemy army a debuff for when we move in to engage with a real army, or when you know it's hopeless leave a division or two behind to cover the retreat of the rest. Anything to get more player involvement in the battle itself really. But really it would be best if it just booted up napoopan when you got into a battle

Wyatt Johnson

Evan Scott

How about giving each unit type a specific terrain where they outperform the others or constraint to their uses (i.e. Cavalry getting combat bonuses from open fields or Artillery having more accuracy when defending from specific tiers of forts) AND a mission that a specific stack can be sent to do (like you said, harassing the flanks, guerilla warfare, holding the line etc.) which heavily changes the combat bonuses?

Ryder Collins

You want the land line in a few provinces, recruit every troop from them. -recruitment cost also makes them save on maintenance forever if recruited from the province (applies retroactively if you build the building after recruiting). Same for the ships and docks.

Production line is almost always good so long as the province is decent, as is docks 1.

Trade is good once you control a trade zone, especially if you monopolize. Once you unlock Trade 5/6 make sure to rush them everywhere and they'll break the game (+1% national trade income and +1% trade efficiency affects your entire empire for each province you have one in).

Government line is kind of bad unless you plan to take lots of stab hits. e.g. if you are non-western and want to westernize, spam them. Its possible to get your stability cost next to zero which lets you westernize the instant its available.

Also take Patron of Art and maximize the usage of this event (https://eu3.paradoxwikis.com/Prospering_times) to get easy max cultural tradition and infinite 5/6 star advisors. Otherwise manufactories aren't terribly important since if you can afford them you probably don't need even more income.

BTW use the ledger to build buildings. You can sort by e.g. province tax and place buildings where they'll give the most tax bonus. It's basically the same functionality EU4 has but slightly hidden.

Hudson Gutierrez

Troops cost less to maintain if I keep them in the province they were first recruited in?
What the hell, I'd never guess that.

Thanks lad.

Also, are vassals better than just land grabbing or outright annexing?
Last time I played I ended up with some 5-6, although they were mostly useless during wars.

Jordan Rivera
Jordan Rivera

Perhaps a system could be implemented where each nation (or at least all GPs and regional powers) has an "agenda" so to speak, some of which can be gained from the relationship with them and whether you're in the same alliance or not and some of it secret or that some sort of spy network could unveil. Maybe this could also move the numerical, absolute YES/NO answer they have to everything, so that if you for example wanted to go to war with the Ottomans, a set of variables within Russia's agenda will trigger their decision to intervene and a proposed war goal of their own. Also I believe that the way peace deals are done is absolutely retarded, it's good that a GP has more importance than any other state but it always feels like allied members gain barely anything from it.

Juan James
Juan James

No, no.

Maintenance is based on build cost. Your troops "remember" where they were built (it's in the save file). If you build a troop in london, and you have a building in london that reduces unit cost, it will cost less to maintain wherever it is on the map. If you build another building in london to reduce the cost further, all units that were built in london now cost even less to maintain. It's even better with ships where you can get maintenance down really far.

Also, are vassals better than just land grabbing or outright annexing?
It mostly has to do with getting more land for less infamy when you don't have a good CB that reduces infamy, where just annexing an OPM will give you a ton. PUs tend to be better than vassals because you can PU countries at any size. Just watch the notification and claim throne, or fabricate a claim with a spy (on the capital). PUs are really abusable in EU3.

However unlike EU4 there is no relation cap, so you can just vassal swarm anyone and it kind of works alright.

A ‘world jewry’ mechanic, semi-hidden from the player, that describes and shapes jewish (read: international) behavior against your nation based on what you do. If you do things the jews like, you suddenly will have more allies and better trade. If you do things they don’t like, your budget starts getting fucked, you can’t get loans, and insurgencies pop up. Even (fellow) GPs will start getting casus bellis on you to bring you into the world economic market.

Okay I've sorta devised a timeline of events for our beloved OREGON:

1836:
Start as COL - Columbia District of the HBC

1841:
Champoeg Meetings discussing an attempt to establish a centralized government in Fort Vancouver, Washington after the death of wealthy trader Erwing Young; could be event to inherit his money.

1843:
Meetings conclude in the formation of the Provisional government of Oregon; Will be given the choice to form the provisional government of Oregon (at the expense of losing the northern territories, which will be incorporated to the HBC), be incorporated to the HBC (tag changes to HBC) or remain as an unincorporated territory of the HBC. Note that Cascadia will only be formed by either ORN (Oregon) or JEF (Jefferson state)
ORN (Oregon) will be comprised of the actual states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho, with a small chunk of Wyoming and Montana. Will be under both the influence of the USA and ENG
Also note that Oregon will get cores all over the Columbia district area, and so will the USA and HBC, this will be the contested territory.

1846:
The Oregon Treaty, USA loses any cores north of the 49° parallel, HBC loses any cores south of the 49° parallel, COL loses ALL cores, the usual stuff. Oregon becomes USA's sphereling.

1849:
USA diplomats arrive in Oregon, giving you the choice of becoming their vassal or remaining independent (which, IMO, should escalate to war, what do you guys say?)

1854:
If the player decided to become USA's vassal, the USA creates the state of Washington, efficiently annexing Oregon's northern half.

1859:
Oregon becomes a state of the union. If you're a vassal, this is your last chance for freedom. You're probably going to be annexed, nobody said this was going to be easy.

Colton Bennett

A few things I would consider.
First, the Oregon Provisional Government was pretty much independent except for the phrase "until such a time as the US would extend it's jurisdiction over us" in the constitution, which was added only last minute on the irl by the insistence of some Methodist faggots. I think there should be debate on whether this phrase is added or not, which really decides whether US has claim to annex (They're still going to do it regardless) and whether Oregon would lose land in the North during Oregon Treaty, right? What do you think? Or are we just assuming that the line will be in the constitution no matter what?

I don't think refusing to become a vassal should trigger an escalation to war, as there was common sentiment in the US that Oregon could be independent, even among Presidents, of course. I would rather it be a relation decrease which might lead to war, depending on the AI. US should still have cores there, so war is pretty much inevitable.

Washington became a state well after Oregon, so making them a state first makes no sense.

A few things I think would be good to add:

Service by Requirement at the outset is historically accurate.

Cockstock Incident
Add event in 1844 that abolishes slavery, removes all nogs, and blocks all nog immigration.
Following the Cockstock Incident in 1844, the legislature decreed that African Americans could not reside in the Oregon Country
On July 25, 1844, Peter Burnett introduced, and the legislature approved, the Black Exclusion bill, which prohibited African Americans from entering the territory and required all slave owning settlers in Oregon to release black slaves within three years of arrival, or the slaves would be immediately freed.[1] Furthermore, it called for all previous slaves to leave Oregon within two years for men and three years for women, or they would be whipped "not less than 20 nor more than 39 times" every six months.

Minted in 1849 to fix the ongoing currency problem shortly after the Californian Gold Rush opened a serious trading partner. As such, they had much more gold in them than US coins. Not sure how you'd implement this, but this should help fix the horrific economic situation Oregon will probably be in at the start of the game a little.

First, the Oregon Provisional Government was pretty much independent except for the phrase "until such a time as the US would extend it's jurisdiction over us" in the constitution, which was added only last minute on the irl by the insistence of some Methodist faggots. I think there should be debate on whether this phrase is added or not, which really decides whether US has claim to annex (They're still going to do it regardless) and whether Oregon would lose land in the North during Oregon Treaty, right? What do you think? Or are we just assuming that the line will be in the constitution no matter what?
I think it's better to assume it's gonna be in the constitution, IMO an event in 1843 deciding whether or not should those Methodist faggots have a say on USA's jurisdiction could pretty much negate every other future Oregonian event; also what malus could I possibly add for that event? There's no religious distinctions between protestants (in game) so making every protestant pop have an increased consciousness and militancy to represent those pissed Methodists wouldn't make sense.

I don't think refusing to become a vassal should trigger an escalation to war, as there was common sentiment in the US that Oregon could be independent, even among Presidents, of course. I would rather it be a relation decrease which might lead to war, depending on the AI. US should still have cores there, so war is pretty much inevitable.
Maybe refusing to join the union could remove your sphereling status.

I could overhaul the pops in Oregon as to make them more realistic (adding more Canadians, both anglo and frog, slaves and a bit more yankees)

Beaver Coins
Sure, it could give the country a bonus to tariff, tax and admin efficiency.

Also, I wanted to ask, what parts of Oregon produce wheat? I know they supplies wheat to California during and after the Mexican-American war. Currently Oregon has no wheat-producing provinces, only timber and fish. I'll change Oregon city's tradegood to precious goods as to represent furs, so that province is out.

I guess the problem is that the AI is schizophrenic and doesn't have an actual plan to go by other than fucking with you. Would probably benefit if it had hardcoded and randomized "goals" so that it feels more natural, i.e. Russia wants to establish dominance over Eastern Europe by ways of assimilation or satellite countries, or it could eschew that for an economy based game). Would also make the game more fun if a significant number, or at least the GPs + some couple of lucky countries had this sort of behavior imposed unto them.
This could be easily fixed if whatever algorithm chooses war goals for the AI took notice of whether or not their country borders with their own, whether or not the POP will be assimilated, whether it can colonize, whether it's a strategic spot (so instead of annexing random bits of Egypt they'd go immediately for the richest or most chokepointy regions), whether they can just enforce political demands etc. instead of lol pick randum probinge :DD

Speaking of which, why isn't there a casus belli (or national decision) that you can use (or fire) which REMOVES foreign cores from your nation?
It's probably because "cores" are basically just areas of your own nation that your main POP lives in or has invaded for so long that they practically think of the people living there as their own. They could make a "force migration" CB (which was not that unlikely, considering that's what the T*rks and the Soviets did to Eastern Europe) where you force a good chunk of the region's population to go back into the defender's population, another chunk gets killed off and the rest are considered part of the non accepted POP while the main POP becomes your own.

Because cores aren't a physical thing you can remove. Despite every peace treaty in history having the losing side renounce any claim to lost land for all eternity, they can always ignore this and use retaking their former land as a CB. Only way to stop this is some kind of 1984-style rewriting of history so that no one even knows it was owned by previous generations.

I'm kinda reluctant to change the way HBC works since it's tied to a shitton of events, maybe an event removing its substate status would break the game/event continuity.

In sum, their NIs are: +10% morale +10% infantry combat ability to start, +10% goods produced, -10% core cost and -10% province warscore cost, +1 shock. +1 siege, +10% fire damage, -5% tech cost, +20% manpower, +1 fire.

Basically the battle of Devernka goes differently, the christian Albanians arnt detected before they sneak into the Turkish camp and are able to do real damage. This cause butterflies, making the Greek war effort better, which in turn mean the Greek financial situation is better, and that combined with a bit more success means tensions between the the Greeks are able to be managed. Also the disastrous foreign loans the Greeks got historically are on slightly better terms.

Jack Hall
Jack Hall

This is the Greek situation as of the last update, they have managed to blunt the egyption onslaught in morea, and the great [powers have intervened. They have forced the Egyptians to withdraw and as they were garrisoning Crete as well the Greeks have basically taken over the cities as the Egyptians leave, due to the Philhellenic representatives of the great powers blatantley favoring them.

I think you can only read it with an account.

Also a key happening is the survival of George Canning as prime minister as he is much more pro Greek that wellington. As wellington was historically against Greece getting Samos and Crete. Combined with the extent of greek territory, they should get them in this Timeline. As in real life when the great powers intervened the Greek state had been reduced to a small strip of land in Argos and Corinth.

The extra land should enable them to hopefully avoid defaulting on the slightly better loans they have taken, as opposed to real history where they went bankrupt and it cause endless economic troubles that plagued the Greek state.

About a minor German noble and conman/debtor who historically was inspired to join the cause of the Corsican rebellion and was briefly the king of Corsica.

In the timeline his scheme to get dutch supplies for his army illegally works and he is able to do much better. Interestingly it could have worked in real life too, as the dutch were very sympathetic to his and the Corsican cause. It captured the imagination of a lot of people in Europe at the time.

So much so that you have the hilarious situation that Neapolitan counterfeit coins of The brief Corsican currency Theodore started were being sold as souvenirs. And they actually were much better quality and with much higher precious metal content than the real thing!

My understanding is that they firstly just wernt great administrators of the island, but that more generally as Genoa declined (along with all the Italian city states) they tried to extract more and more from the Corsicans to make up for it.

Oda's sole claim to fame is Oda Nobunaga. One ruler who should get the best stats, but the fact that Oda was only independent for a short while, and disintegrated after Nobunaga died, proves that they didn't have any inherentadvantage over other clans, IMO. Nor a different culture or anything. I could understand it if maybe the Ikko-Ikki were formable, then they could have different NI's due to a drastically different ideology, but Oda has nothing of the sort as far as I am aware. This just smacks of Paracucks trying to add artificial depth in the shallowest way possible rather than actually creating a mechanic for one of the most popular historical settings of the period. What pisses me off even more is that they already attempted to do Japan in EU3 and in Sengoku, so couldn't they have just copy-pasted some of that shit over?

Kevin Rodriguez
Kevin Rodriguez

All NIs make basically no sense historically. I'd be totally in favor of getting rid of all of them. EU3's sliders were a way better way to do it. But it's clear Paradox considers NIs to be a set of buffs to be distributed according to the stereotypical specializations of a tag and powered up/down depending on random game balance inclinations. There's a lot of stereotypical specializations of various clans in Japan, so they get lots of special NIs.

Japan basically needs a CK2 or at least EU:Rome system to properly model it, but it's EU4 and everything has to fit in EU4 systems. In EU4 terms it would be Oda that united Japan and his successors would be more like a dynasty change/pretender since there's no EU4 mechanic for a clan to absorb multiple other clans who without a battle.

But one day suddenly italy formed without warning, with florence as the capital and papal states was reduced to one province(they even lost their over seas areas near ethiopia to italy. Naturally I declared war on italy as soon as possible. But why did it form? do italians have their equivalent of crown from gutter even? I also noticed that sqavoy(I conquered sardinia from them to make them back into secondary power) and two sicilies no longer have cores anywhere. so I guess my plan is to liberate other italian minors and conquer southern italy sans sicily. I already conquered turin from italy. How unfortunate, I really didn't want to conquer them, but sadly, I have no choice.

The bit about the financial warfare department and how Germany is secretly in enormous debt and is using pozi schemes and stuff to hide it, cause they dont care about getting found out as long as it happens after the war starts.

This was started due to Self insert Hitler being aware that the abwehr is useless and traitorous. and when he finds an excuse to purge it (one of their historical fuck ups) they are able to recover evidence the abwer had of the soviet buildup. With this evidence Nu-Hitler is able to convince his cabinet to consider themselves already at war and take drastic preemptive military buildup, essentially trying to startup the total war economy before even declaring war.

Instead of “change_capital ### to ###” or whatever, just make all capitals be independent of event nomenclature, and any event that changes them simply register the move without taking note of the origin. I mean, EU IV and CK2 can fucking handle that. The user can move the capital at any time.
Wouldn’t that be even more unrealistic? Say the capital is the part of the only state to touch the coast, with two or three inland states beyond it. The invader would have to annex the inland states (totally cut off from them as an enclave-exclave) before annexing the coastal capital province. It’s just bullshit overall.

As much as I absolutely dread Vicky III, maybe they’ll fix some of that shit in it.

Make a copy of EU: Rome folder. Both Epigoni and Magna Terra modify map so it's impossible to have installed both.

Alexander Rivera

It does have module system just like EU3 but mods which modify map cannot be installed alongside each other. It has something to do with map/cache/province_textures folder inside main EUR directory.

I always get the sense that they guy who makes these is angered by Germania blob posting in a very autistic way.

Germany blob annoys me aswell, cause the whole point of Germany is to have a nation uniting the German people and made up of Germans. But that seems like the opposite of the point that the anti Germany blob poster is trying to make, as they presumably dont like the idea of ethnostates.

In case you missed the last 60 years of Marxist brainwashing, the narrative says that the whole point of Germany is to take over the entire world and make lampshades out of jews.

I think you'll find the Balkans are vassals, and only took Tsargrad for myself.

East Asia is just eastern Australia plus some islands that will be necessary for power projection in the region(power projection was a problem even the USSR had), although i did want all of Australia but didn't have the time. The vast resources present were to be my pacific Siberia.

And Manchuria i suppose, but thats pretty standard for an imperial Russia, also gunna be necessary to give strategic depth in the east and to secure a warm water port.

Just looked and found that later i also fucked chian and made korea my bitch.

The war with Rome has been going surprisingly well, owing to my army composition (horse archers are great). It's actually meaningful in this game, unlike the other Paradox GSGs.

That pinkish province at the top are the Nitobroges, an Irish band that invaded Gaul just a few years after I managed to drive away the Cornish Dumnonii. I'm thinking of leaving that province alone and just extracting tribute from whoever currently happens to be settled there. Each uncolonized province has a population which grows over time, and as they get bigger there's a chance that a horde will spawn and head for the nearest civilized province; or the richest as they often skip Gaul and go toards Rome.

Manpower is more important than money in EU: Rome. In vanilla you usually have plenty of cash but lack manpower.

Build up as high as possible level forts around the coastline Japan has navally invaded you, set your planes and navy to intercept enemy troops and try and boost relations with another Asian country like the Phillipines so that Japan gets preoccupied with taking them down and forgets about you.

Plus I need to have a knife near my enemies heart. You'd be surprised how gelded Persia actually is when Istfan is 1 province away and their capital 2.
Same thing as Mamelukes.
And this is Meiou so there's not much space for mistakes. Especially for low piety, naval nation like me. The ugly borders are for a reason.

tfw entire known world is out of manpower.

Also I never realized how tough the lategame of EU:Rome actually was. Literally the only Paradox game in which conquering the entire map is interesting. Since manpower is limited but regiments are cheap, the AI nations that only blob half as much as you eventually build up hundreds more regiments than you can hope to use. And since conquered pops mostly become slaves, all your extra land doesn't help as much and just leaves you an overextended mess trying to use useless mercenaries.
