Question for yall:
Where online can you discuss History one minute, then Gaming the next?
Then maybe learn some Philosophy then talk about Movies and Books? Then after that, relax by watching some funny .GIFs, reading some AARs, or viewing some borders that're only mildly irritating? Do you know of any such board?

Answer:
It sure as hell isn't Reddit, if that's what you're thinking. It's an amazing community I've been using called /gsg/. I honestly feel my IQ has increased at least 20 points since I bought my Veeky Forums pass. It's also why I've been using reddit a lot less.

is there no way to change culture of a province in ck2? I conquered Sicily ages ago and its still berber, I was hoping I could make all of my holdings Italian but it just doesn't happen

Methshot
Methshot

@Methnerd
It needs to be owned by a person of the culture you want to change it to and be next to a province that is already said culture. Even then the mean time to happen is based on admin score of the person and even with an admin of like 30 its still only going to happen after 20 years with worse people taking fuckin centuries. For example I conquered wales fairly quickly as a brit by the time I got bored 2 centuries later only 3 provinces had switch to my culture. Theres also a cheat that changes it.

It happens through random events, no way to do it reliably. Tribals can do it semi-reliably because one of their councillors have a 'settle tribe' mission which fires pretty often.

Hello mates it's time to have a great thread with the lads, so to speak. Rev up your Germanies my gamers.

Hello fellow gamers, I've come here with a dilemma I'm facing which I hope you lot can shed some light on. Despite my best efforts at customising my PC gaming rig, perfecting the Whip AND the Nae Nae, and displaying my knowledge of Dank Memes none of the girls in my school seem very interested in entering a romantic relationship with me, and instead go for loud tall nasty brutes and Black Guys (Just to assure you, I'm not racist and I fully appreciate Black People and Black Culture. My favourite artists are Silento and Tupac whom I prefer over my last favourite rapper who was Tyler The Creator because they respect women more) with bigger jaws and hands than me.

I asked my mum and my best friend (Who I have a secret crush on, but despite buying her lunch every day she still hasn't confessed her possible love to me) about this and I learnt from them that appearances do not matter, so why am I still without a girlfriend? I am kind, helpful, intelligent, and I don't pose a threat to anyone especially women. What do I do? Do I need to increase my dabbing by 100%? I've recently received £50 from my granddad for my birthday and I was thinking of buying a new Minecraft hoodie off the internet with my mums permission, could that impress the geek and gamer girls? I wish to hear your thoughts guys.

Why is it that nobody in my generation wishes to discuss the finer points in life, such as PC Gaming and combating degeneracy? Since when was having large useless muscles which will go away in 20 years seemingly more appealing to Aryan Women than being thoughtful, intelligent, and pure-blooded? Fucking degeneracy these days. It's all propaganda meant to destroy white civilisation. Aryan women no longer have nice non-threatening petite bodies like in Anime and Manga but have nasty fat chunky boobies and bottoms meant to appeal to niggers and degenerate brutes.

Wew lad. I'm sure Byzantine fell before you formed Rome, so Russia wants to call itself the Third Rome still. And you're allowing the Holy Roman Empire exist still even though you're clearly in a position to dismantle it.

I hope you're only keeping Maldovia too, so you can actually have decent borders and not a random Roman blob surrounding Germany.

My only ally ming collapsed, and japan declared war on me, then stack wiped a 26 stack with his 23 stack with god rolls

then I just closed the game because losing hokkaido essentially meant losing everything because I dumped thousands of mana points into it to force institutions.

I wasn't even behind in military tech, I have no idea what happened, He fucked my ass crossing a strait with a 1/2/2/1 general

Colonizing alaska was a mistake, I should of immediately hopped to california.

Also is there a way to get a better religion than Animist? Are you able to convert to shinto or buddhism somehow really early as Ainu? Korea probably would of allied me had I not been animist.

Snarelure
Snarelure

@Emberfire
If you get a province of another religion you can convert to it iirc. I could convert to Sunni/Hindu after colonizing two provinces of that religion as Tidore, so I'm sure it works just like that for Ainu, unless your government affects it.

Why don't you load the backup immediately after losing the battle? Sure it's gamey and pretty much cheating, but what the hell. You can alternatively, for a funner playthrough, get the province of Cholula in Mexico and become Nahuatl.

TreeEater

@Evil_kitten
The provinces of Cholula, and the southernmost province of Ceylon have events that let you convert to the province's culture (Theravada and Nahuatl).

It would perhaps make your game more difficult, but it would certainly be a very fun, roleplaying playthrough.

Just imagine it, Ainu explorers discover the great cities of Mesoamerica, are fascinated by their wealth and culture and adapt their culture to theirs. Or something like that. It's not without precedent either, most conquerors end up adapting to the conquered culture (China, Normans, etc).

/vg/thread/165271549#p165285219
Also, chinanon, I need some good operational names

Told you I had exams lad. If you still need it:
for an invasion of Manchuria designed to cut it off from Korea
Okay I'm not sure how you're cutting it off from Korea given that Manchuria is kind of the only mainland connection to Korea, but Operation "Tianxia Yiguan Kaijun Lieshan Leihai", "The First Gate Under Heaven Opens For The Army, Splitting the Mountains and Thundering Across the Ocean". The "First Gate Under Heaven", or the Gate of the Mountains and Seas, is a gate on the Great Wall that the Manchus kept getting repelled by.
This might be too long, so Operation "Wanjun Chubu", "Ten Thousand Armies Ride Out". It's a reference to the fact that the Great Wall, after getting raided by Manchus, got reinforced in certain sections so as to "Pima Buru", "[Make it so] Not a Single Horse Rides In".

and for an invasion of Korea where the goal is to encircle Seoul.
Operation "Yinhou Qizi Chaoxian"; there's a prince of the Shang (Yin) Dynasty named Qizi that supposedly founded Joseon (Chaoxian) around what is now Pyongyang. This is the name you want if you mean to keep Korea instead of releasing it. If you want to release it and merely mean to free it from Japanese occupation, Operation "Hancheng Hanshou", "Han Men will Protect Han City"; Seoul is also known as Hanseong, or Han City - Hancheng.

Also, I think Meng Tian might make more sense after some consideration for the Mongolian venture, simply because he is more famous than Bai Qi in regards to fucking with the Mongolians or Xiongnu; Bai Qi is more well known for being the "Butcher of Men", being undefeated in the Warring States era, and executing 400k prisoners at Changping.

Retaining low literacy and low militancy is key.

Labourer pops with low literacy are far more likely to be conservative. Craftsmen lean towards socialism comparatively. Nations like Portugal or southern Italy would be the best. If you pick a literate nation your pops will inevitable be socialist/liberal towards the middle/end of the game.

I think I understand everything about HoI III except warfare (you know, the most important part of the game?). What are some good countries that allow me to understand and master it without being too much at risk? I have myself considered the following:

Germany
Pro: Lots of opportunities for war, high IC
Con: You get everything thrown on your plate at the same time. You need to be good on land, in the air and at sea and have good supply lines/infrastructure or you'll get your ass kicked

France
Pro: Only focuses on one front, only focuses on land warfare, doesn't need to worry about supply (you'll fight exclusively on or near your soil)
Con: Atrocious IC, practically set up to lose (even its national decisions rely on you losing the war!)

Britain
Pro: Extensive focus on naval and arial combat, a little bit of land combat
Con: You need to focus on both India and Britain, you already need to be really good at naval combat or you'll get rekt

Australia
Pro: Out of the way, unlikely to befall any harm, will focus on mostly naval and arial combat
Con: Early on you need to take on the IJN by yourself, you won't succeed

Yugoslavia
Pro: Small and easy to handle, lots of weak neighbors
Con: Due to proximity reasons you're forced to join the Axis, eventually Germany will take on the SU and you'll be unable to meaningfully assist due to how small your country/army/IC is

Also, any other suggestions I almost certainly overlooked will be welcome.

I vote for Britain. If you demonstrate that you have a firm grasp with sea and sky then you'll be given more opportunities for land combat. If you struggle with the former then you will have little of the latter. If you completely suck then you're gonna have all 3 in a hurry and then it'll be over.

Why do so many of the Japanese decisions/events after unification in HPMeme make the POPs more liberal? The Japanese are an extremely conservative culture, even moreso in the 19th century, and the Meiji Restoration was an entirely top-down process. The very reformers were extremely wary of democratization or liberalization, and it was a transformation based wholly on the pragmatic grounds of "catching up" to the Western powers, rather than any sort of true ideological acceptance of liberal ideals. And afterwards Japan had slipped "backwards" to what was essentially a military junta by the end of the first WW, rather than the further continual democratization that Vickie attempts to simulate.

You seem to be running quite a budget surplus, so build more armies and expand your navy
Make sure you have .2% officers for more leadership and better generals, which factors into your score
Build factories appropriate to the local RGOs, so in a province making fruit that has high enough literacy for craftsmen, make a wine distillery
Check the trade screen to see what's in demand
Make your populace more literate and more will become craftsmen, which is the primary determinant of industry score
To raise literacy, research the techs that increase educational efficiency, especially biologism which has an invention (darwinism) that gives the biggest boost to EE in the game, and encourage clergymen in every region up to at MINIMUM 2% for max research point bonus (2% nationwide population of clergymen is the cap for getting more rp from clergymen), and if you can go to ~3.5% clergy, as the rate of literacy gain increases with clergy percentage up to 4%

On that note, can you tell your State Department to stop broadcasting its AQI indexs now that we have our own system that matches embassy reports? It's kind of confrontational, considering China is the only nation the US Embassy reports on despite other nations also being heavily polluted - see India.

Well, the economy hasn't tanked yet, unlike what Washington hawks have been saying for pretty much the past decade where collapse was imminent, and I don't see any other major issues that would make the place "not fine", besides air pollution which is admittedly real annoying. It's been clear as hell the past week though.
Also, again; I'm rich, have connections, and am educated. The first and third I can bring around sure, but the second kind of stays.

@Evil_kitten
I envision Trump, if he knows what he's doing, negotiating with the Taiwan and perhaps the Japan chip in exchange for the protectionist measures and trade agreements he wanted to implement. Gorbachev simply fucked up on his own; Reagan could've literally smoked a cigar and the USSR would've still fallen apart. Personally I'm not sure what he's even trying to do right now; hiring Navarro is honestly not the best of signs, not because Navarro is a China hawk, but because I don't think he knows what he's talking about. TPP hitting the trash is great for us though.

@Firespawn
The Opium War's main problem for Qing wasn't the drug itself (which was a huge problem) but that actually gettnig shitstomped in a war weakens imperial power immensely, preventing reform and such, and is also often considered a sign that the Mandate has gone and flown away. Hence, the retarded bumbling that was the Heavenly Kingdom.

I didn't denazify American-occupied South Germany, its why West Germany was NDP-ran for the majority of the Cold War. Now it's a competition between NDP, other populist parties like that one bible party and AfD and socialists like SPD and Die Linke. FDP is also pretty strong. CDU is almost non-existent.

@Snarelure
Yeah, I didn't have to intervene to fix borders or anything. I liked the alternate collapse of the USSR, where when it collapsed in like 1996 it actually stayed communist up to the early 2000s, when it became liberal for a year before the populist LibDems (pretty much neo-imperialists of Russia despite the name) took over.

Main war I waged in Europe was against the UK when Spain wanted Gibraltar and I interfered in favor of Spain to grab some UK islands in the Atlantic. Lots of wars happened after the collapse of the USSR, which was pretty fun to both play with and watch. France and Germany went to war because France claimed the Rhineland

The formation of Austria-Hungary was essentially an admittance of Prussian hegemony on the German question, though. And if Austria admits that, there is no reason for further hostilities with a now unified Germany or territorial quabbles. The only feasible options for A&H at that point are a) the historical route, involving normalization of relations w/ Germany, or b) giving Galica Lodomoria and Hungary independence and peacefully joining the German state.

They still do and it is not a rubber stamp democracy, unlike our own; I bet you didn't know the PRC has a democratic branch of government. To be fair, neither do most Chinese people, since it does basically nothing. It is a way to get ahead in the CCP though. The protests in HK were hardly even a thing, and since I've gone there quite a bit recently, I've had the chance to talk to Hong Kongers about the protest. They, unsurprisingly (for me), actually thought that it was much ado about nothing and annoying because it blocked major roads for days on end. We didn't go over and shoot them or anything. Beijing just kind of sat there and watched.

now they can't even watch porn without a VPN.

The fact of the matter is that we cannot defeat the US in an actual war, not least because something ridiculous like 60% of our oil goes through Homurz...which is, very pointedly, controlled by US and Bitche - ahem, Allies. Even disregarding that, the most we'd be able to do effectively is run a limited war in our immediate surroundings - our nuclear fleet and long-range aircraft groups are pretty lacking compared to the US, and while the ground army is close to being par with the US even soldier for soldier, the navy and air are far behind and that is what would count against the US, as we share no land borders and are seperated by LITERALLY half the globe.

The Griqua established their own church
As it stands in V2 there is no culture representing Africans influenced by Euro culture, who were always classified differently than the natives by the countries they lived in
If the people of the time saw them as a different group from the natives, why wouldn't we?

There's no "mixed culture" in the game because just because someone is "xhosa" doesn't meant he's ooga boogaing in the plains. xhosa also represents the griqua. That's what "multiracial" means, because Griqua is used to talk about a diverse range of mixed RACE people. It has shit all to do with culture.

Afro-american culture represents one side of the cultural spectrum (african-descended), yankee, dixie and texan represent another (european-descended).

I think it's actually a poor idea with as good of an implementation as they could've managed. The entire idea is ass-end retarded.
I don't think it's bad by itself... country leaders differ on capacities; some are good in internal affairs, some on military, some on multiple skills and some are full potato. Based on that, monarch-dependent resources is only natural, as it is advisors being able to make up for your monarch's disadvantages.

However:
1. The three "manas" were poorly divided. Bird mana for example is used for unjustified demands AND cultural conversion AND changing trading port AND subject annexation... those activities have nothing to do one with the other, you shouldn't be forbidden from changing your trading port just because you asked for some provinces in a war.

2. The mana usage priorities are awfully clear - so stuff low on the priority scale (like cultural conversion) never gets used.

3. The very concept of storing monarch points is retarded - a monarch is either able or unable to do something, period. It's made even worse because of the cap bringing artificial scarcity.

4. They feel magic-like. That's why people call them "mana". They don't feel legitimate on a historical game.

There's no mulatto culture in Brazil.
The regional cultures from Bahia, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro are pretty much mulatto cultures - for example the "acarajé" from those three is pretty much an African dish with Mediterranean influence, their accent is influenced by blacks, yadda yadda yadda.

It isn't at all. What makes sense is the monarch's abilities adding modifiers to the effectiveness of certain actions; a 6 ADM leader might enjoy less coring time and an increase in tax efficiency and lower corruption, for example.
Besides the points you brought up, it has the secondary effect (kind of your second point) where you apparently have all your bureaucrats write up blank cheques the entire year, to be spent at once upon the immediate negotiation of a peace treaty, or the immediate change of a capital, or the immediate advancement of a technology.

How the hell does this not set them apart from the Khoisan (not Xhosa, Khoisan were the ones living within the Cape)?
If the guy modding South Africa wants to add Griqualands to his mod, like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griqualand_East, do you suggest him to just take a few Khoisan pops and move them to a custom province south of Natal?

And in a few places they were lumped together as mixed race. Point is, there's no mixed-race culture because the game doesn't deal with race.

My idea is literally just the EU3 system. EU4 has plenty of good ideas that are improvements over EU3 or could become improvements, but they're stained by the filth of mana and static trade. There is literally no reason why sliders had to go; monarch traits and monarch stats can work fine without fucking magic power.

The monarch point system would make a lot more sense if it gave boosts instead of being required to do things at all.
For example you could spend monarch points to increase your research rate for X years, increase your manpower recovery rate, reduce coring time etc.
That way you could still make decisions that shape your country, representing how your monarch spends his time, but without really dumb hard trade-offs like your naval technology level being stuck for decades because you wanted to culture convert provinces instead.

I just don't think that makes sense. The entire points system sounds atrocious to me. I get the idea of 'this is what I am focusing on' but that should be represented through other means - decisions, edicts, etc. The monarch stats should give boosts to general areas, traits can give additional boosts to specific areas, so on so forth
Also, static trade is fucking obnoxious

Well that's because the sliders did not have enough flexibility in the sense of there was literally a solution to the sliders and under almost no circumstances did you really move it away
I think the slider system would benefit from dynamism, in that the sliders themselves change over time, and that certain policies, which might say encourage Innovative in 1399, slowly become more and more Traditional not because the values changed but because the concepts of tradition and innovation have changed. A faction in favor of expanding layman knowledge of God and so favors the printing press may not be so happy about that press being used to print smut, for example.

Why have people living in the tropics still been unable to develop any art or civility, nor improve any policy in their government, or have any military discipline, while the few nations in temperate climates have been deprived of these maluses? It is probable that one cause of this phenomenon is the heat and constancy of the climate in the torrid zone, which make clothes and houses less necessary for its inhabitants, and thus eliminate, in part, th adversity which is always the greatest stimulus to work and to invent. - David Hume

Human life in these nations can be maintained with so little that the poor rarely suffer from anxiety, and in climates where the mere existence is a pleasure, the luxury they prefer is that of the rest. Energy, under the appeal of passion, they possess it in abundance, but not that which manifests itself in continuous and persevering work. And since they rarely care enough about remote goals to establish good political institutions, incentives to industriousness are further weakened by the imperfect protection of their fruits. - John Stuart Mill

It's not a joke, living in a place where 9 out of the 12 months of the year have a scorching sun of 40-50 degrees celsius makes you lazy. Just google anything related to it and hundreds of scientific articles will show up proving what I'm saying. Latin Americans, niggers in Africa, Indians and Southeast Asians are lazy mostly because of that.

But they were until not long ago when they've decided to turn into a free trade based city-state, and what @Supergrass
said.

Why do you people underperform when removed from these conditions?
Because after hundreds of years of natural selection the laziness genes become part of the general population as the genes for industriousness are not needed anymore because lol easy food during all of the year and free entertainment on beaches. That's the same reason but reversed that White people perform better than tropical people inside tropical regions, like in Australia and South Africa. Thousands of years of natural selection made the White people smarter and more creative than everyone else because if you were dumb and uncreative you were pretty much as good as dead when winter came.

@Nude_Bikergirl

hey

@whereismyname

here, its a bit of risk/reward situation really

the best focuses for improving are hunting and rulership, but they're also the two that can kill you, hunting directly through event and ruling through giving you depression which can force suicide since a recent patch

I'd recommend having a wife that's your lover (you can get that through family focus) before going into rulership for ambitious/diligent/just since lover-wife pretty consistently triggers an event that clears depression, which you can combine with carousing to get the maximum chance to get rid of it as fast as possible

you can get brawny (and great warrior for another +2 martial +2 personal combat) from war focus through random events without ever having to actually duel, it just takes a really long time, I think I was almost a hundred years in war focus before I got brawny, war also gives you wroth which you will want to replace later since its not very good

I think the 5 traits I stabilized at (ambitious/diligent/just/brave/lustfull) was pretty good, ambitious and dilgent being the most best ones and lustfull being the worst but I'm not gonna add more traits just in hopes of dropping lustful and risk dropping the good ones (in case you didnt know if you have more than 5 non-permanent personality traits you will randomly drop some untill you're at 5)

also I'm not 100% on this but I think you should avoid having a wife under 30, because it seems like young wife/old ruler triggers an event where there's a chance you die in bed

the improve prosperity ambition will improve your stewardship by 1 every time, stacking, IDK exactly what it is beside time that causes it to trigger though

Road to 1954 is already a good mod, how much bullshit would I have to jump around with to make a mod that spans that long of a timeframe? Maybe be able to get the permission of the mod makers to just mash them together?
Then have to put in some restrictions on different parts to make sure the tech trees don't get out of hand.

I could just imagine a modpack spanning from 1910 to maybe as far as the Fatherland 1964 mod takes the game.

So it turns out that even if you disable supernatural events they can still fire, albeit much more rarely. Not sure if that's a bug or not, but I am looking for immortal characters now to make sure.

On the bright side, EU4 will actually be something other than "just sit and dick around in my invincibility" because the AI suddenly got less stupid and has been blobbing hard. There are currently 7 and once we move to EU4 we can add Ming assuming they don't collapse (the Abbasids haven't so you never know).

I'm not sure if the HRE will hold though as the Karlings are hopelessly inbred and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they make Francia or Germania and fuck themselves over. Admittedly that's kind of my fault because I've been wanting to keep a good NAP going.

A heritage which I will honor by being clothed in cotton produced in india and worked into clothes by small Asian children. Sharing some chocolate made of african coco, while drinking coffee. (While having a projector (connected and made with a combination of oil and minerals mined and pumped out of the "third" world projecting the glory on a wall besides me)
