Upgrade Requests

Military

Guatemala/Mesoamerica

  • From: Tier 1
  • To: Tier 2

Reason: Mesoamerica now has a population of around 25 million, giving it a large potential pool of recruits. It has also industrialized significantly since the game's start, enabling it to supply some of its own arms needs, and has also purchased weans from overseas to give it a fairly modern military.

Sure. In dust you began....... and in dust you shall end........

Saudi Arabia

  • From: Tier 2
  • To: Tier 3

Reason: For the same reasons listed below, as well as the fact that Saudi Arabia has undergone substantial military expansion since the start of the game. ~Edge

Seems legit.             Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   00:35, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

Sweden

  • From: Tier None
  • To: Tier 3
  • Reason:Sweden may be a small nation with population about 8 milion but at that time that i took control of Sweden(1954) it was already a very technological advanced ,industrialized nation.~Wrto12

I would say tier 2. ~Edge

Yemen

  • From:Tier 1
  • To:Tier 2

Yemen has undergone sigifigant military developments since it has fallen in the Saudi Sphere. Armed with modern weapons and training, the Yemeni Army is better than others in the region, baring Saudi Arabia and other major nations in the region. ~Edge

Rhodesia

  • From: Tier 2
  • To: Tier 3
  • Reason: Rhodesia's military forces have been involved in two major wars with European nations, and have trained extensively to Western standards. The military itself is quite large, and has the a nation with the ability to support it fully backing its fight abroad. All weapons provided to the RDF are produced either at home or provided by South African military industries.

Technology

Saudi Arabia

  • From:2
  • To:3
  • Reason: The Saudi's have been involved in arms trade with the Germans for several years now. The Suadi's also started in a similar technical situation to Turkey, who has now progressed to tier 3. While I may not have the raw industry to Match Turkey, deep arms trade with Germany should be sufficant to make up the difference between our military scores. ~Edge

Ye.             Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   00:36, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

South Africa

  • From: Tier 3.5
  • To: Tier 4
  • Reason: I've been working hard to expand the intellectual capacity of the South African population, educating hundreds of thousands of them over the last twenty-three years, as well as building up a literate population which now accounts for 90% of the population. The Univeristy of Cape Town has been developing new technological breakthroughs, thanks due to no small part of the several Cambridge University refugees I accepted into my nation back in the 1930s, who have since been working for South Africa's universities. In the time that has passed, I've expanded my post-graduate population greatly, and have been working to expand that number to greater heights. ~Viva

No, I can't support this. You are not on the same tier as Japan in any way, and I think the place where you are now is fine. The fact that you have been building universities is relatively meaningless, and the technological developments you have been making still do not put you on the same level was Japan. Maybe by the late 1960's, but you are not that great of a power yet. I'd also like it if you didn't complain about this in chat. Upvote User Flag New April showers, bring May flowers. Egypt Flag Final 2

So I'm not on the same level as Japan, but Brazil is? The nation that historically lagged behind South Africa for decades until the mid to late 1990s? Britain has actively been supporting me since the start of the game, and I even have OTL backing me up. I've been picking about Einstein's works, expanding the world's knowledge of physics, developing computers that no one else has yet, but I'm inferior to Brazil? I respectfully refuse to acknowledge that. Also, I posted this request two weeks ago, so much has changed in my nation since then. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 20:22, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

Brazil ISN'T on the same level as Japan, you both are equals. Check the tier list before you make assumptions next time. Upvote User Flag New April showers, bring May flowers. Egypt Flag Final 2

Yeah, I looked, four or five times now. So keep your assumptions to yourself please. Brazil is tier 4 clear as day. while I'm still tier 3.5. Also in response to you Soviet Union statement:

  • "they're communist" - There have been many communist nations, and more have been poor and backwards than advanced and technologically competent.
  • "they have a larger population" - The Congo has a massive population, and yet I don't see any Congolese spaceships yet.
  • "most people there work" - North Korea has a 100% employment rate, yet most of the people are impoverished and starving.
  • "they have more innovation" - Innovation is nice, but what type of innovation is even better. Having a highly innovative population designing new types of shoes is wonderful, but shoes an advanced nation does not make. If you have 1,000 scientist working on 1,000 things is pointless and fruitless, than having 100 scientists working on 10 things.
  • "a larger military" - Well shoot, so did the Qing Empire, but it was throwing men armed with spear and shields at the Japanese invaders in the 1890s. Pointless reason.
  • "better location in Europe" - So did Romania, but once again, do you see any Romanian spaceships? I know I don't.
  • "they're a major player in the cold war" - China was a major player in the Cold War too, but it was hopelessly behind the rest of the world technologically, and didn't become a major power until after it opened up to the West and its innovative minds. So pointless.
  • "a superpower" - Which was not contingent upon being technologically advanced. The Soviets built lots of weapons for lots of soldiers, and stomped their way into that status. Soviet tech didn't become a thing until the 1950s. I'd suggest you read up on that bit.

Also, Brazil has only one of these things (population). So why are they in tier 4? Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 23:03, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

  • "There have been many communist nations, and more have been poor and backwards than advanced and technologically competent." The Soviet Union was not one of those states, at least not until the 1980's.
  • "The Congo has a massive population, and yet I don't see any Congolese spaceships yet." The Russians were all put to work; I don't see you putting 100% of your adult population in a good job. The Congo don't have a spaceship because they were in Africa, same with you.
  • "North Korea has a 100% employment rate, yet most of the people are impoverished and starving." That's because North Korea has a fucking insane dictator.
  • "Innovation is nice, but what type of innovation is even better. Having a highly innovative population designing new types of shoes is wonderful, but shoes an advanced nation does not make. If you have 1,000 scientist working on 1,000 things is pointless and fruitless, than having 100 scientists working on 10 things." You're saying that point as if the Soviet Union only has 1,000 scientists itself. As demonstrated in OTL, they far surpassed the rest of the world by putting their people in good jobs.
  • "So did Romania, but once again, do you see any Romanian spaceships? I know I don't." It's because it was pressured by the goddamn Soviet Union.
  • "China was a major player in the Cold War too, but it was hopelessly behind the rest of the world technologically, and didn't become a major power until after it opened up to the West and its innovative minds. So pointless." But you're arguing for a nation that isn't the Soviet Union once again. The USSR was open to other communist nations and did much better than everyone else.
  • "Which was not contingent upon being technologically advanced. The Soviets built lots of weapons for lots of soldiers, and stomped their way into that status. Soviet tech didn't become a thing until the 1950s. I'd suggest you read up on that bit." Thanks for the backhanded insult, but I actually have read up on Soviet history. Again, you haven't done anything remotely close to what the USSR did to get that status.

I'd like for you to not continue responding, since I'm done arguing. You're not being moved up, and that's a final decision.Upvote User Flag New April showers, bring May flowers. Egypt Flag Final 2

When in doubt (and losing), silence the opposition. Okay. But I am getting my spaceship (unless you want to argue with Elom Musk), and unless you have a legitimate reason and sources to back it up, your opinions hold no water with me. Being a mod doesn't give you the right to push BS. Also, you not wanting to argue is fine. But that doesn't mean I can't post on a talk page.

Sweden

  • From: Tier None
  • To: Tier 3.5
  • Reason: For the same reasons listed above.

No, Tier 2 at best for this,~Edge

Romania

  •  From: Tier 2
  •  To: Tier 3
  • Reason:  The country has (ever since I played) aimed to develop education by the construction of the apporpriate buildings, and thus,Romania has more than 85% of its population literate enough to read and write in 2 languages. The University of Bucharest has also experienced massive expansion. 90% of Romanian universities, public schools, or academies possess capable teachers and professors. Romania's intellectual capabilities have also grown as proven by the capabilties to research military technologies without help from other nations

Industry

Sweden

  • From: Tier None
  • To: Tier 2.5
  • Reason: For the same reasons listed above.

Again, Tier 2 at best.~Edge

Rhodesia

  • From: Tier 2
  • To: Tier 3
  • Reason: Rhodesia has been undergoing extensive industrialization since the start of the game, with billions of dollars worth of industrial equipment and technology poured into the region to expand its ability to contribute to the global economy. More than half of the population is literate, and can therefore be employed in high technology sectors, allowing for the ability to produce more advanced goods and wares within its borders. Likewise, the development of an extensive transportation network within Rhodesia to transport these goods, combined with the nation's large population, allow for large output of industrial goods at a reasonable pace for this tier. ~Viva

South Africa

  • From: Tier 2.5
  • To: Tier 3
  • Reason: South Africa boasts a massive industrial base, with more than 100,000 km of paved roads and 20,000 km of railways within its borders. With full access to all of the most precious metals mined in the world, the nation is entirely capable of producing the advanced wares that many other nations in the West are capable of producing as well. Precious wares, computers, and warships of all types are easily produced in South Africa. Population-wise, there are nearly some 25 million people in the country and growing, with plentiful food supplies to support the nation and allow it to focus on industrial output. 90% of the population is literate, and therefore employable in high technology and management positions. South Africa produces its own cars, weapons, airplanes, and warships, and will soon be able to produce its own rocket designs. ~Viva

This one is fine. As you said in your post above, you have been building universities and training people for non-military jobs. Enjoy your tier 3.Upvote User Flag New April showers, bring May flowers. Egypt Flag Final 2

Brazil

  • From: Tier 3.5
  • To: Tier 4
  • Reason

Brazil over the past few decades not only underwent an intensive industrial development process (in the 30's and early 40's) bringing it up to a modern standard but with the Closing years of the Presidency of Nereu Ramos and the historically Industrial President Kubitschek the Brazilian industry i believe has achieved tier 4 convincingly. While not able to meet the United States on equal footing in industry, the Brazilian industry has quite easily surpassed Japan and moved into the realm of lower areas of France Germany etc etc with an ability to match their industrial production in the 70's. The 50's saw the growth of Brazils industrial sector enough to support manufacturing the equipment for nuclear weapons, Easily replace military equipment losses (ships, aircraft and such) and has also acquired the Dominant industrial position in South America with various cornered markets brought about by the South American Union allowing Brazil to exploit the lax trade restrictions to expand its own industry through more supply and demand. The Brazilian industries in Aeronautics, Defense, Shipbuilding, Oil, and now in lesser cases Steel (this doesnt rival Germany or the US but is an emerging industry nonetheless). Along with this the easy access and investment to resources that provide to my industries allows the resource and industrial might of Brazil to be not only mastered, but brought to bear.

I'm afraid I can't support you moving up, at least not for another few years. I don't think you're on the same technological standing as the great powers yet. You're closer to South Africa.

Venezuela

  • From: No specified tier ever made
  • To: Tier 2.5
  • Reason

For one Venezuela never had a tier. Secondly Brazil outside of jumpstarting the Venezuelan Oil industry pretty much allowed for the Oil wealth (while somewhat flowing into Brazil) to be put back into the Venezuelan economy. While small population wise, it boasts a developing and potent Commodities industry, Rubber, Huge amounts of Oil industry, and now in a few cases a Shipbuilding industry capable of building civilian ships and some medium military ships.

Colombia

  • From: Tier 2
  • To: Tier 2.5
  • Reason

Colombia should be higher on the list if it remained stable, but due to the Communist revolution and the subsequent war to put a democracy back in charge, Colombia fell off a little. Regardless her industry has been rebuilt/restructured from the ground up giving her the most benefit (in most cases) for the least cost. With a major oil industry already existing, co-opting agreements with Brazil and Venezuela, and a massive throw on investment into Colombia her Industry has made some serious gains in the past couple years. With Shipbuilding, high quality coal reserves, a developing steel industry, and the Overall capitalistic support from a good amount of Brazilian/American businessmen the Colombians have real potential to become an industrial powerhouse in their own right providing vital materials to the Rest of the Continent they would not be able to manufacture by themselves easily.

Brazil

  • From: Tier 3.5
  • To: Tier 4
  • Reason

Brazil with solid agreements with Germany, its own heavily developing defense industries on top of the Development of the South American Union, gives Brazil a major market for her military goods, a Major reason to keep and hold a strong military force (being the Military powerhouse of the organization) While definitively not holding the best spots in equipment, they are mostly comparable to other nations designs in most cases. Along side a relatively modern and decent equipment base, Brazil has secured military bases and territory far out into the Atlantic, and into the Caribbean. The Brazilian Carrier fleet on top of this is easily one of the best in the world, taking its queues from Japans training, and Carrier doctrine with its own Brazilian Fling of higher ability to churn out decent pilots (The domestic oil industries and high aeronautics industries allows for alot more flight training and less shoving new pilots into cockpits). On top of this the major Focus of the Brazilian navy on Quality of its Power Projecting Carriers fleets and naval forces allows for a relatively potent force. The Brazilian Aerial and Ground forces also maintain sizable training and doctrinal regimens giving them expert training in Jungle Warfare, hill and Mountain warfare as well as the Brazilian Marines being given extensive Amphibious training. With a tacit military agreement between the US and Brazil as well, and now exported Training to nearly all of South America id say ive more than earned this spot.

Romania

  • From: Tier 1
  • To: Tier 2
  • Reason:

Since I took over Romania, every turn I had, with the exception of 1 or 2 turns, has been focused on interconnecting the country via railway. I've also been focused on heavily industrializing the country, with my factories supplying most of my citizens goods and basic necessities. The Trans-Romanian Railway has also exponentially increased the efficiency of transportation of goods and materials across the country. Romania has also started producing her own firearms and tanks and very soon will be able to produce much more sophisticated technologies such as the jet engine. With the oil industry (which flourished thanks to Germany), and the completion of my first hydroelectric powerplant, I have little to no need to import energy sources

Map Issues

If you have an issues with current map please post under here.

  • A couple of mistakes with the map include
  1. Ethiopia never conquered Italian Eritrea nor British Somaliland. The player simply mentioned attacking both on his turn but no algorithm was made.
  2. If I am not wrong, South Africa controls the former British Pacific Islands (Maldives, Socotra etc) as well as Lesotho, Swaziland and South Rhodesia
  3. Australia purchased and controls the former Dutch East Indies
  4. Japan controls Macau, East Timor and Western Papua.
  5. Saudi Arabia does not control Oman. However, they do control Yemen (Those two Yemen things)
  6. The Map for Greece needs to reverted to how it was after its conquest by Italy and Turkey
  7. France never ceded the Hatay province of Syria to Turkey. It should therefore be returned back to Syria on the map.
  8. Brazil annexed the Three Guineas as well as South Carribean Islands.
  9. Even if inevitable, I don't particularly remember Ireland uniting in any Mod Event.
  10. France is under control of its Indian enclaves.
  11. Spain is in control of the former Portuguese enclaves in India.
  12. Gibraltar is supposed to be a single pixel and attached to the Iberian Peninsula. I believe the Spanish enclave on Morocco (Ceuta/Mellila) has been incorrectly coloured showing British control.
  13. Something about Germany and Posen that NK said. (there should be no border between Posen and Germany its all a single entity now.)
  14. It isn't helping that Brazil/Italy/Saudi Arabia share the same colour. Similarly, Canada/USSR/Britannica share the same colour as well..

~ Somebody

  1. Hmm I was pretty sure that happened already.
  2. OK I'll fix that.
  3. Australia just "bought" Indonesia? Which has a larger population than it? As well as a completely different cultural base? I say ASB and call for a retcon.
  4. This will be fixed.
  5. This will also be fixed.
  6. It is like that. It's just in lighter shades of the colors of those countries.
  7. Hmm yeah that's a mistake.
  8. This will also be fixed.
  9. It's part of the Scotland things. Although I think there's a few turns to go. This will be removed from the current map.
  10. Yes.
  11. Yes.
  12. Yes.
  13. Yes.
  14. Yeah the greens are pretty close together, but not the reds I don't think. Something with your screen brightness probably.

Hey mods, why are all of my diplomacy actions deleted? Isn't that the point? You do know that Canada was separate enough from Britain to make its own decisions about foreign affairs, right?

You are aware that history has happened before 1933, right? You already have relations with half of these countries and the other half are basically fascist killing machines that bear no relevance to Canada.

Also, may I ask, why were my diplomacy turns crossed out (Although I am completly fine with the crossing out, jusk asking why) ~ QC

Please Answer my question. Isn't the point to choose which countries I form relations with? I have a strategy, and it involves Japan. Is that not allowed? And for the other countries, I'd like to specify where the embassy is and confirm that the other countries recognize me, so I ask for embassies in countries Canada already had embassies in. I find it useful to have that confirmation. There is no need to cross something out for it being useless if it does something.  ~~Vatonica

The relations have to be realistic. for example you can't have the Nazis ally with the FRench then take over Europe. That would be very ASBish, and map games like this are supposed to be realistic. Saturn 22:38, February 16, 2015 (UTC)

So basically, I can't change what I already have, and I can't do anything new. So basically, the map game has no point. Isn't the idea that it ISN'T excactly the same, and that's why it's interesting? Nothing interesting about doing the exact same thing as has already done before. If you want that to happen, then you can just write that yourself. ~~Vatonica (I know I'm Right)

No, the point is that you can do whatever you want, but you have to be somewhat realistic at this moment in time. The Britsh Empire and its dominions had shaky relations between Japan and them, so it wouldn't be realistic to establish a major embassy. You can do things, but don't get all unrealistic from OTL. Saturn 00:47, February 17, 2015 (UTC)

So based on this, name a country that I don't have an embassy with already that you wouldn't reject. You rejected Venezuela even for reason I don't know.  ~~Vatonica

I didn't say anything about Venezuela at all. I would check to see what nations the British Commonwealth had close relations with, and then go from there. France might be a good start. Saturn 02:49, February 17, 2015 (UTC)

Venezuela is a impoverished mess that is not doing well at this point in time, so we do not want to spend time and cash building embassy in Canada.The River Nile-2 (talk) 03:13, February 17, 2015 (UTC)

10:25, February 17, 2015 (UTC)

Sean, i think he was just asking. - QC

No, don't worry, I have stuff planned that will make my mark. ~~Vatonica

Just because you "can", does not mean you "would". Many of these nations you are trying to build relations with you either A) Have relations with them already, B) Its dumb to build relaltions with at this point, or C) you would't have built relations with at this point. 

Having this argument on chat kept getting the Westminster decleration thrown at me. Yea, that may have given Canada the power to control some aspects of foregin poliocy, but if you look at OTL, Canada had formal relations with few nations before the 1940s. So it's clear that even if they had this power, they didn't fancy using it. On top of that, Canada is, despite the westminster treaty, dominated by England. Same with the other domains.

In dust you began....... and in dust you shall end........

Vatican City

Why has the purchase of the formal papal enclave in Avignon been crossed out? Its a castle, a few chapels, and limited gardens and small houses within the complex. Currently, France has to pour money into restoration of it. Additionaly, there is historic precent (from 1929-1930s) for the Holy See to purcahse many buildings and properities within Italy which served as extraterritoriality region for the Holy See. The border would not be closed to the French, but rather the same as the Vatican City and Rome's relationship. If necessary I could write a formal treaty if that would make everyone feel better. g greg e (talk) 22:31, February 16, 2015 (UTC)

Any mod response at all ? g greg e (talk) 19:37, February 17, 2015 (UTC)

While I don't know who was responsible for the crossing out of your post, I can suggest a reasoning for it. The Vatican had just recently regained its independence and I feel like too the instance of losing said independence put a damper on any plans of expansion. This is just my idea, I'm not entirely sure what the reasoning of both the expansion and the crossing out is. 

"This is not your grave but you are welcome in it." 19:42, February 17, 2015 (UTC)

Its not like im trying to purchase vast swathes of land. Its a deal that made sense for both parties. The reason for expansion is to use it as a place to get to catholics in France and western europe (and to potentially have a place to go if the Italian government turns hostile - which the papacy was still no 100% trusting of mussolini and other italian leaders despite italia's large catholic population). If no one has any objections otherwise could the crossing out be rescinded? g greg e (talk) 07:22, February 18, 2015 (UTC)

Algorithim

Location

Location goes by the location of the nearest large concentration of troops.

  • Defending nation: at heartland: +5
  • On the border +4
  • A city close to the border +3
  • Far from the border +2
  • Opposite side of nation +0
  • No former presence +0 (you have to have troops in the location before the attack)

You can only have one; it will be of the Leader nation closest to the area.

Power

Aerial assault is tangent with location. For the attacker, your aerial power must be close enough to the location of attack, with your land nearby for the planes to return to.


Naval assault is only applicable when attacking a coast.


Land assault is also tangent with location. No requirements for land assault other than being somewhat near to the border.

  • Large aerial assault capability +3
  • Large naval assault capability +3
  • Large land assault capability +3
  • Medium aerial assault capability +3 (if enemy has no aerial power) +2 (if the enemy has aerial power)
  • Medium naval assault capability +3 (if the enemy has no naval power) +2 (if the enemy has their navy stationed in or around the location)
  • Medium land capability +3 (if three or more times larger than enemy) +2 (if less than three times larger than enemy)
  • Small aerial capability:+1
  • small naval capability:+1
  • small land capability: +1

Land, aerial, and naval is compounded. If you have large naval, medium air, and medium land, your score is 9 or 7. You cannot have medium aerial and large aerial at the same time.


Power is averaged in a coalition war.


Ahem: from now on, Power will work as a MULTIPLIER to development. You can increase your power, too, through development.

Industrial Strength

  • US, Germany, USSR,UK: +5
  • France, Japan: +4
  • Brazil, Italy, Czechoslovakia: +3
  • China, colonies of the UK and France, rest of Europe, Ethiopia, South America, Saudi Arabia, Turkey: +2
  • Everyone else: +1

Industry is added up for all participants in a war.


Scores will be changed over time.


Power Caps

Based on your industrial strength, you have a cap on your power

  • +5=power caps at 9
  • +4=power caps at 7

Results

The equation for gains from war algorithms is (p)*(1-1/(2x)), where x is the number of the years the war goes on and p is the amount of territory determined by the algorithm ((y/(z+y))*2)-1 where y is the winner's score and z is the losers). So if your war lasts one year, you only get 50% of the territory, but if you let the war last five years, you get 90% of the territory. The minimum amount of territory you can win from an algorithm is 1%, otherwise it is a percentage of the loser's territories to two decimal places e.g. 13.69% not 13.69242%.


A great calculator for this is http://web2.0calc.com/ you just copy and paste the equations into the box and replace the letters with the numbers for that specific war. And then you just copy the answer to the main page. Or folks, just use Google. Their automatic calculator is a great aid in working out all this.


There will be on algo per phase/front of the war- NOT PER BATTLE, and ONLY for MAJOR wars.


If a certain war appears Implausible or otherwise, the mods reserve the right to change the amount of land gained.

Im not mod, but I found this- "Dominion status was formally defined in the Balfour Declaration of 1926, which recognised these countries as "autonomous Communities within the British Empire", thus acknowledging them as political equals of the United Kingdom; the Statute of Westminster 1931 converted this status into legal reality, making them essentially independent members of what was then called the British Commonwealth."

Why is USSR even helping Japan? From what I know, relations between USSR and Japan were pretty bad since they have a lot of disputes and fought a series of border conflicts from between 1932 - 1945. I am aware that this game is different from otl, but I really have not noticed any particular change in relations between Japan and USSR. Seems rather strange for USSR and Japan to jointly invade China. "It's not going to suck itself." 16:53, February 20, 2015 (UTC)

Brazil Implausibility

The Brazil player has, in the space of four years, turned Brazil from an impoverished country reliant on the West into an independent economic superpower that is vassalizing hostile Spanish-speaking nations, massively building up its military, and trying to form a South American European Union.

I, for one, am calling bullshit on this. Let's not forget that, at this time, South America was hugely dependent on the West economically. There is no way the United States would plausibly let Brazil build a possibly hostile EU-type organization in its strategic backyard. Not only that, but Brazil's neighbours will never plausibly let it "vassalize" or influence them. Uruguay, Paraguay and Venezuela, (the three targets thus far), all have different reasons to dislike Brazil, and there is no way they would plausibly let themselves be pressured into economic subservience by a somewhat foreign culture. Any such organization would not be led by Brazil, but by a fellow Spanish-speaking nation.

Second, Brazil was not a stable military power at this point. It had three revolts, including by both Communists and Fascists, over this period, as a quick look at Wikipedia will reveal. There were attempts at secession, massive general strikes, and general instability and unrest. ATL Brazil, meanwhile, has discarded the the Depression at least five years early, suffered no serious unrest, and is even making massive purchases of foreign arms. In fact, Brazil has even proposed to intervene in Central America, something so far outside its capabilities at this point that I am amazed it hasn't been crossed out already. Brazil at this point was poor, unstable and massively corrupt. Suddenly, Brazil has magically transformed itself into regional power. It even is acting to halt Communism, despite the fact that Brazil at this point had a massive Communist movement which was fighting in the streets with right-wing elements. OTL, this was crushed by the police, but ATL, it seems to have magically vanished instead. Can we see some mod action please, or we'll see an implausible-ass South American Empire by 1940. Shikata ga nai! 01:33, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

I have never claimed to be an economincally independent superpower or any such thing. Im trying to build up heavy industry im not saying its not corrupt either but me saying improvements in certain things does not remove the point that there is still corruption among other things im just not talking about it. Far enough into this, Getulio Vargas was a fascists for the most part. As for the communist element. Communism was not in the streets fighting as you so say, there may have been a few riots but Brazil was nowhere near being a communist country. As for riots and unrest that is the mods job not mine. If they see it as implausible then they can give me some unrest but im not stopping a solid development program that Vargas did OTL.

You also seem to have missed the point that i have in fact put in a much different constitution than OTL which would easily negate a communist upheavel especially if they could gain their power legitimately.

As for the depression i havent discarded it. I am nowhere near pushing out of the depression but i am also once again not talking about the problems that are present because those are really for me to try and figure out how to handle. I will handle them when they are an issue or i deem them needed to be addressed. But as of right now Brazil had loads of potential period end of story and im exploiting Vargas's monopoly on power to handle this.. Unless you have spent a year doing research on the capabilities and issues of Brazil (which i have been) then i would suggest calming down and letting a mod address the problem. I am also not even trying to make an implausible south american empire. I am fostering relations and going off of what Venezuelas player did before he left. He set me up for influence. The last game i was Brazil Venezuela had a major revolt that i helped crush when i wasnt even a great power yet, i had my unrest and im going to address it. As someone who thought you could colonize greenland as a native state i dont really thing you should be going after me.

Also, any claims made need sources to back them up. No source means your claim is invalid. This is Edge, He is a cool guy when he isn't too lazy to sign his real sig. Hit him up. 01:51, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

Well to back me up, the Brazilian government OTL while corrupt managed to gain a solid industrial base under Vargas OTL just lesser than the current one im building right now. OTL Vargas was moderate industry focus, mine is Heavy industry focused. The Vargas Era while a dictatorship was one of recognized industrial improvement under his Industry friendly policies. Im just perpetuating those with heavy industry and a plan to empty out the favelas as well by putting people to work voluntarily in the Amazons (for whatever resource or settlement opportunity). My industry focus in the southwest will undoubtedly cause class conflict which i will address when the time comes but its really not too pressing of an issue right now. Since i took over in 33 i have had plenty of breathing room to avoid the 35 on upheavals of communists and fascists by putting people to work pretty much. It may still be there but its definitively delayed until probably 1939-1941. 

As for the Great Depression the amount of people being put to work (as well as foreign purchases increasing) is simply implementing economics that i have mentioned to the point of having Vargas's political favor running out if he does any more really. People are being put to work and some people arent happy, sorry but it still doesnt change the fact i can make foreign purchases for various projects and developments. Debt or no debt i am allowed to make these purchases regardless which is purposfully my point in buying heavy industry product from aborad so i can increase my own domestic heavy industry development by using that base status to expand it. I even mentioned my industrial production is slowed due to the lack of industry producing the consumer goods among other things. Also as for Rapidly industrializing, thats not implausible. Brazil doesnt have a dust bowl and doesnt have the same crop shortage as the US which drove people to cities i have other problems of just stuff being too cheap for the few main exporting industries in the country.. I buy coffee crop from farmers and burn it to keep them soluble as coffee growers (OTL this happened) and in general im just trying to migrate a good portion of people from that to new industries (steel and some manufacturing) in states that have pretty decent coal reserves which i think is relatively plausible. 

As for military development and purchases, i was planning on having it develop up to a point until the political support for it dies down a bit and the Great Depression is over. My military development and purchases is purely to employ a crap ton of people for a good long while, WW2 brought multiple countries out of the Depression through military purchases and development. Simply put, the overspending on equipment allows for alot mroe jobs, might increase the debt but it doesnt really have an effect other than having weaponry for troops and having employed more general purpose people as a result. 

As for the potential meddling in guatemala, Vargas was anti-communist as anything and im almost completely sure if he had the ability he would have prevented communism from expanding into Central america. Venezuela in general is of the point of the previous players on agreements with me. He wanted economic development and defense and i was going to help provide that. He essentially opened the whole country to influence when he accepted a deal to jointly develop oil. The Wings of Freedom #FP Wings of freedom 2 (Talk to Me)

Given that there doesn't seem to be a plan for a new Brazilian Empire, the domestic unrest hasn't just vanished, and the economic stuff is justified by OTL, Brazil seems fairly plausible to me. So I guess this is cleared up, at least to my satisfaction. Shikata ga nai! 02:25, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

Ireland

I was wondering could I join as Ireland? I'm asking because it does not appear on the nations list. I think Ireland would have an intresting alternative WWII History if The Fascist Leader Eoin O'Duffy got into power or perhaps joined Britain in the war in hopes that it would lead them closer to having Northern Ireland returned to them. These are both realistic, the second was considered by the Irish government and the first is something that was a rising movement before Eoin O'Duffy was arrested to prevent it becoming a fascist state. People also feared that the arrest would lead to a non- Democratic state, I think these are intresting plausible scenarios. I would also ask to reserve Ireland for myself if it's allowed.

Also, let's not forget that the Communists were massively powerful in France right now. A Socialist-led Front Populaire government led France after the 1936 elections. The French electorate sees Germany as more of a threat than Communism. Shikata ga nai! 01:36, February 24, 2015 (UTC)

if there is an issue with my dealings with france there is no problem with the alliance being rolled backed however a non aggression pact would still in place, and with a huge change in german policies the deals would have happened lets face it germany was going to remilitarize nazis or no nazis. france couldnt do anything to stop it otl and they wouldnt have been able to here but in the atl case the change in german regime wpuld have allowed for a more pragmatic solution which would have allowed for french and german eventual reapporachment dont get me wrong germany and france would still have issues and tensions but it wouldnt be as alarming as the rapid expansion of communism in europe. With Blood and Iron (talk) 03:19, February 24, 2015 (UTC)

also a heads up most of my diplomatic stances this ava are based on the harry turtledove series the war that came euarly. the germasn, brits, and french do actually form an alliance against the soviets in the book, and poland sides with germany as well, and if i have a saner leader then the fuhrer i honestly dont see why a legit anti-communist league cant be established , on the grounds of keeping peace in europe. but again its up to the mods With Blood and Iron (talk) 03:53, February 24, 2015 (UTC)

France will be allowed to stay cause they aren't invading with Germany.

Since it's taken so long to finalize this, it would make sense saying that this war has lasted from 1937 through 1939. Starting to enter into the realms of World War II.

Algo Clarity

  • So this algo is based off of the R-Word Algo, hwoever it is my interpretation of such algo
  • Development Scores count as +1 per turn.
  • If a nation Sends supplies and has a higer industry score then the leaders, use the suppliers
  • if a nation is sending MIlitary support, power should go up, assuming the Military aider has a larger industry.
  • If a nation is leading it must invade on it's own. In this case you use the higher industry, average the powers, and use all nations development.
  • Troop numbers will be added to the algo at some point.

Nuclear Weapons PSA

People seem to be under the misconception that nuclear weapons are easy to create. Yet, I must remind everyone that as of right now, there is no country on earth that can create a successful nuclear weapons program. There are three problems: scientists, resources, and motivation. It took a letter from some of the most well-known physicists in the world at the time to convince the world's leading superpower to begin the nuclear project; there is absolutely no reason some backwater country would start nuke research because of its potential; with the money spent on a nuke project, said nation could have trained and equipped a thousand armies, navies, and air forces.

The Manhattan Project cost 2 billion USD, or 26 billion adjusted for inflation. It involved over 130,000 people, 30+ locations, and almost a hundred scientists. It was, until the Space Race, the most resource-consuming project in human history.

As of right now, America is the closest to the bomb - it has the scientists and resources. However, it lacks the motivation - why start an economically taxing weapons program based on an unproven theory in the midst of the Great Depression? The Soviet Union and Brazil lack the scientists and resources, although it has more motivation. So I want to get this straight right now: no one is producing a bomb until 1945 at the earliest, and most nations apart from America and the Soviet Union (hint, hint, Brazil) won't be able to get them until the late '50s. So please, I don't want to see Japan developing a nuke and dropping it on LA during WWII. The schedule for nuke development (assuming the American player doesn't "accidentally" find the Soviet spy rings in the Manhattan Project) should be as follows:

1945-1948

  • America
  • Soviet Union
  • Germany

1949-1955

  • Britain
  • France

1956-1960

  • Brazil

Covet Actions

After looking at the algoritms, you did not talk about covert operations. So my question is that can you perform covert operations in the game and how would it work?

Please remember to sign your posts.

I would say that it depends on the action. Simple spying would probably be allowed, although major things like assassination of major political leaders and the stealing of major state secrets would probably be an issue to be brought up to neutral mods who can decide who such operations end up.

Also, remember that the Spanish Civil War in this ATL was only in northern Spain (Mainly Gallica and Navvare). Added with the fact that French and Soviet investments were put into the mimimg industy, and I can see the Republic of Spain trying to invade and try to get rid of the Facist regime, which, by the way, supported the Nationalists (or at least in OTL, I'm guessing it did, since it's practically an NPC,) in the Spanish Civil War. Saturn 11:33, March 1, 2015 (UTC)

Also, if I may step in here, the fascist powers of Europe provided Franco with the resources and troops needed to win against the Republicans. That hasn't happened in the game. So Saturn can technically beat Portugal in a fight, especially considering that all of the military power Spain had in the 1930s isn't being directed against Franco.

Well, in the OTL Spanish Civil War, the Facist Regime supported the Nationalists in their side of he civil war. Since Portgual is practically an NPC, (Which the user hasn't posted once, btw.) It would've supported the nationalists in the civil war. The nationalists brought a fierce police state onto Northern Spain, and some of e remaining forces retreated there. Since the state, supplying the other side, saw it as a direct threat. Also with the fact that Franco escaped to Portugal, as well with the fact the brutality of Facism was brought upon the Spanish people, military action was declared on Portugal.

Honduras really has effectively no air force. It acquired its first combat aircraft only in 1938, and needed funding from Italian investors to do so. Not only that, but the government can barely fund its existing military; it needed to periodically borrow money to prevent mutinies by its unpaid soldiers. Honduras at this point is still pulling out of the Depression and is unable to afford more than a few hugely outdated planes. It hasn't received the foreign aid necessary for a Central American country to have a functioning air force at this time. As such, I request that the air force bonus be removed.

Idk but I personally think that the Eastern Front should be "Germany, Poland and Finalnd attacking USSR and Lithuania". Basically, there should be no 'Northern Front'. Moreover, I don't think that the French attacked Netherlands since they don't even border each other. Rather it would be France attacking Germany and the Dutch sending support to the Germans.

I would like to point out that troop count matters very little. The troop count algorithm is "=(MID(B192,1,1)*0.15+4*(LEN(B192))/1.5)" - basically first digit multiplied by .15 times number of digits times 4 all divided by 1.5. Basically, digits is about 26 times more important than first number in the algorithm. An increase from 125,000 to 700,000 makes your troop score from 16.15 to 17.05, less than an increase of one.

Polish Civil War

With Poland in Civil War, I think it makes the most sense to have the two sides, which are now politically different, break into East and West Poland. The West would end up Communist, and the east would end up in a dictatorship. The problem is that I probably should be in charge of both. Vatonica (talk) 12:45, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

You know, it doesn't really make much sense for areas bordering USSR to be Pro-German and areas bordering Germany to be Pro-USSR. In fact, Poland shouldn't even be in a civil war. Germany had over a million soldiers soldiers all over Poland, and it would take them no more than 12 hours for the German army to peacefully depose the Pro USSR government considering that in this AvA, Poland has had been sharply Anti-Communist. "It's not going to suck itself." 13:08, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

I won't decide about the Civil War, as I think it could technically still work, but you need to swap West-Poland and East-Poland around. Also you shouldn't, nor will you be in charge of both. You can't control 2 nations. Youu can pick one, but have to let go of the other. Prinsenvlag Hail Sean! (Get a free potato here)
14:29, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

I pretty much agree with the above statement and I personally believe that Vatonica should be played as the "Pro USSR Poland" given his current opposition to Germany... How he tried to join onto the USSR side two turns ago and how he just messed up everything for NK by driving Poland into civil war. "It's not going to suck itself." 15:09, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

It did made circumstancial sense for the two sides to be where they were. This is because the military, which was pro-Germany, was stationed on the border with the USSR, and attacked towards Warsaw from there. Also, I know that I would only be able to control one of the two, which was the point of this discussion. I think that I would control the Pro-USSR West, and Germanywould control the Pro-German East as a puppet state extension of East Prussia. Vatonica (talk) 18:35, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

Pretty sure that Poland is going to end up under the Soviets 100%. even if it does spilt in 2, you can not be both.

I wanted to be allied with the soviets, and if not, I wanted t be in their sphere of influence, but that was deemed implausible somehow by the mods. Vatonica (talk) 20:55, March 8, 2015 (UTC)

Actually, at this point, the USSR has been so successful that the Pro-Germans would be killed by them and the Pro-Soviets would have full control. I think the civil war will end in 1944 and Poland will be fully at war with Germany.

Question

Mods, is my turn plausible:

  • New Zealand: On 25 September, Peter Fraser is elected Prime Minister of New Zealand, however, only days after that, he is assassinated by a strong, powerful Māori movement called the Liberated Oceania (LO) movement, the LO then takes over the very weak Government of New Zealand, and Eruera Tirikatene becomes Prime Minister, the new strong government surprisingly joins the Axis, saying that the Axis is the only way to destroy the imperialist colonial West, and that the Axis is strong. We send many heavy weapons to Germany, Poland, GEACOP, and other members of the Axis to combat the Allies, we also propose to GEACOPS to invade Australia and the Soviet Union in order to end Western presence in Asia. We urge Mexico and Iran to join the Axis too. Many firebombs are sold to The Netherlands, Germany and Axis nations. (NOTE: The movement started when the map game began in secrecy, so it has enough power too overthrow a weak government and establish a strong one)

Although not a mod, I don't see why I cannot express my opinion. The population of New Zealand in 1945 was 1,702,329 and the Maori population was 115,646. The Maori therefore constituted roughly 6.7% of the NZ Population. Now, did the Maori have enough influence to overthrow the British-backed government in NZ? I'd say no but let's still move onto other parts of your turn. Now, why would the Maori even join the Axis is completely unknown to me. If UK were in the Allies, it would make sense but no, UK is not even part of the Allies and even then, why would the Maori want to join the Axis considering that the Axis are beaten back. Moving on, New Zealand lacks the capability to safely send weapons to the Axis in Europe due to the French naval blockade over Germany and the hostile British navy (Towards Maori). So let's forget that... and move on. Now, the Maori asking Japan to invade Australia would seem logical since Australia would generally oppose a Maori New Zealand but the rest of what you said such as asking Mexico and Iran to join Axis; and asking Japan to invade USSR. They make no sense. "It's not going to suck itself." 08:52, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

This group grew since the POD. And thsi group is a group of supremacist Maori's that see the Axis as a way to decrease European influence on Asia.

I am afraid but there never were really any 'Supremacist Maori' and in fact, the Axis doesn't even exist in this game. Rather, the 'Anti-Communist League' was established by Germany. So I am not even sure how an Anti Communist League that is currently getting their REKT by USSR could possibly help the Maoris.. "It's not going to suck itself." 10:04, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

I'll remind you once again that the Maori only constitute 6.7% of the population of New Zealand in 1945 and a great majority of them belong to the poorer class. How exactly could such a group then stage a coup d'état is unknown to me. "It's not going to suck itself." 10:10, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

I am sorry about the implausible turn. I shall remove it now.

Well, considering the fact the United Kingdom is or would be undergoing a Communist Revolution, you still do have a fair chance of becoming independent. Although ofcourse, the 'independent' NZ would not be Maori-dominated and would also need a 'Protector' or else it would fall under Australian influence.

Union of Monarchist Indian States

Alright, its OK to allow UMIS and its name Union of Monarchist Indian States into this map game. The Indian government doesn't based off on Wreck-It Ralph because Wreck-It Ralph don't exist and not having used Wreck-It Ralph until 2012 when Disney creates this. Its government and its name Shugarist are based off on Ravi Phunkar's book series The Sweetest Folk and its not having Wreck-It Ralph stuff to do in this map game. Since I passed the Hindu law in when all Muslims must convert to Hinduism, it doesn't likes the Muslims, so Pakistan declare independence from India and the same Burma also in east. People who want Republic instead of monarchy rebels against the Imperial government and joins together simpler with Muslims. This is what called the Indian Civil War between Hindus and Muslims. So I will not use Wreck-It Ralph stuff anymore and I now using my own Sweetest Folk stuff in India here. No Wreck-It Ralph, Fix-It Felix, Vanellope, Sugar Rush racers and the Nicelanders will have to do with map game. NO CREATING THINGS 67 YEARS EARLY!

Emperor Eric XV of Sweden - Sugar Rush Art Eric von Schweetz T C IM] Flag of Sweetmany

Not even sure so lets make it simple

  • Your Hindu Law to convert all Muslims to Hindiusm doesn't make much sense as the Indian Governmemt was largely secular, and attempts to convert a religion that constituted 25% of the population would've resulted in a civil war
  • Pakistan and Burma will become independant. That is kind of inevitable and you can't really do much to avoid it unless you want to destroy India.
  • An unknown person called Ravi Phunkar would not become the leader of India, Jawaharlal Nehru or Subhas Chandra Bose would. 
  • India would not be a Monarchy, it would be a democratic state.
  • 'Indian National Monarchist Works Party' would be a tiny party. The Indian National Congress and Muslim League would be the two major parties in India. So no, there would not be any 'Shugarist' whatever either. 
  • Those wanting to set up a modern Republic in India will definitely not migrate to Pakistan or Burma. They are going to start a rebellion and easily overthrow your Monarchy which shouldn't even be here in the first place. 

I accepted, I'm going to rename the UMIS to United States of India as a republic. So I basically undo Indians wanting Republic instead of Monarchy and we are now at war with Pakistan and Burma. Finally, India never have Monarchy after end of British rule in 1945.

Jinnah dies before Indian independence, and no Pakistan - simple as that. Gandhi could also convince Jinnah to become Prime Minister of a united India, which would also mean no Pakistan. Burma may not be able to go independent as easy as you think it will. 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 14:06, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

Well, movements for independant Pakistan and Burma have already started, and the Pakistan Movement had already started 7 years before Indian independence. Moreover, the large scale of implausible stuff that Eric has done uptil now doesn't help him much. Anyways, a lot of other states other than Pakistan and Burma have potential to become independant

  • Assam - Large scale separatist movements took place in Assam, launched by the various tribes that lived in Assam which eventually lead to the Indian government completely breaking down the province. Since then, independence movements have existed in Assam and fighting and stuff usually happens.
  • Dravida Nadu - A movement existed to create a Tamil state in Southern India and was at its height from inbetween 1940s to 1960s. It was quite popular then but failed to gain much support from other parts of India. Although a 'non-violent movement', it does indeed have the potential to become violent.
  • Nagalim - Generally close to Assam, this state too demanded independence and given how close it is to Burma which is currently fighting for independence; it is quite possible that Nagalim may as well declare independence. Otl, they led a violent insurgency in 1950s. 
  • Hyderabad - The richest and most developed Princely state in India, this state was ruled by a Muslim ruler who sought to establish an independant Hyderabad state in 1947. Eventually, troops were sent to annex forcefully annex Hyderabad. 

~ someone

Anyway Eric has already goofed a lot and worsened the political climate in India, so Indian unity is pretty much impossible by now. Pakistan, Burma, and now potentially Bengal are going independent. Also Bengal and Burma have allied with each other against India so Eric has officially dug his own grave.

Eric Removing Edits

Ok, I personally think that Eric needs to drop his immature attitude. Recently, he has been ignoring the revolts in Burma, Bengal and Pakistan. He rarely ever mentions them in his turns and acts like everyone is supporting his unknown leader. Moreover, in a 'fuck you' to the Mods; he suddenly passed a law demanding all Muslims convert to Hindiusm and then automatically had the 16.9 million Muslims converted to Hindiusm. This turn when the state of Pakistan was able to secure their otl borders with India, Eric decided to sent an army of 3 million soldiers and 4000 tanks to attack Pakistan. This however was completely implausible as India lacked the resources to arm an army 3 million soldiers nor did they possess 4000 tanks. As mentioned here 

  • ​I seriously wonder whether India has the resources to arm a 2 million army or the transport system to send such a large army over to Western India without suffering large scale attrition. They're in a state of unrest so yeah. Moreover, right now its 2014 and India has 6,464 tanks so I seriously doubt India would have 4000 tanks in 1946. 

http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/Axis_vs_Allies_Resurrection_(Map_Game)?oldid=1142672

Instead of replying to my edit, Eric instead decided to go and completely remove my edit. I believe that this is a breach of rules as Eric is obviously attempting to cover up his implausible actions and removing the edits of others. I personally have the view that Eric should be punished for his actions. 

Moving on, once he had removed my edits; he decided to add a couple of more implausible edits. He declared that India had developed jet engine when India completely lacked any jet fighter otl. Even during World War II, when major developments were brought forth to the Indian Airforce, no jet fighter was developed. But somehow, a recently independant India has managed to develop a jet fighter in this AvA despite no British participation in World War II. He even had two Indian automobile companies "Hindustan Motors" and "Mahindra & Mahindra" become the top automotive manufacturers in India despite the fact that they were little known companies in otl 1945 India and then he went as far as to make it sound as if almost everyone in India had purchased cars from this company despite the fact that only the urban parts in India possessed cars then and scarcely any part of India was urbanized back then. "It's not going to suck itself." 15:55, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

I'm just throwing this out there, India did have the resources to raise that many soldiers, as it was the military powerhouse for the British Empire. It wouldn't be completely unfesible for the Indians to raise such an army, converting their alrighty formidable textile industry into one of making uniforms, and utilize the industrial centers in Mumbai, Calcutta, and Hyderabad to produce tanks and weaponry. India was able to build its own weapons, since the British didn't want to flip the cost of shipping in new weapons for the many armies they were raising out of India, so armories were built throughout the sub-continent. As for the infrastructure, the British left India was a massive network of railroads, since it was the "Pearl of the British Crown", and had to be treated as such. One doesn't move thousands of tons of raw materials out of a place like India without some serious logistical planning. Finally, India can have the 4,000 tanks given that what a tank did in the past, as well as the relative cost, is far different from those of today. Today, a tank has air conditioning, turrets that can move while on the move, night vision scopes, high-tech suspensions, advanced communication equipment, and powerful engines, all of which hike up the cost and build time of the average tank. A tank in 2015 cost far more than a tank in 1946. This is the 1940s. An M4 Sherman in 1946 would have cost the equivalent of about $500,000 in today's money. An M1 Abrams costs more than $8.5 million, and don't even get me started on the freakin' Leclercs. Tanks in this era are relatively simple, cheap, and easy to produce. All they need to do is move and shoot, nothing else. It is completely within the ability to India to have what Eric claims to have produced.

While you're correct in stating that India would easily be able to raise an army of 3 million, I certainly doubt they'd be able to arm such a large army. Given the virtual independence that the Princely State of Hyderabad possessed and their general desire for independence, I would certainly doubt that they would aid the Indian Army. As far as Calcutta is concerned, it should be becoming a warzone very soon due to Bengal fighting for its own independence. That would put all of the pressure on Mumbai, and lets not forget the Dravida Nadu independence movement which would certainly result in Tamil pressure over the Indians for an independent Tamil state and particularly harm Mumbai if the Tamils decided to go on the offensive. As for Indian railways, while I would admit that India indeed as the 'Pearl of the British Crown', Indian railways suffered greatly during the Great Depression and given the war in Burma, Pakistan, Bengal; attempts to sabotage the Indian railway by Indian Muslims or any other group could easily be completed. Even in 2006 and 2006, the Indian army were unable to quickly prepare a force to be transported to the Western Front. This was one the major reasons for not declaring war upon Pakistan then. Now moving on, I certainly doubt that India would be able to construct 4000 tanks in a single year given how the British Indian army rarely possessed tanks and in case they did, they were controlled by the British not the Indians. In fact, a large majority of the Indians in the British Indian Army were enlisted as sepoys. Unless a large majority of the British who were Officers in the army resigned, it would've been quite difficult for India to suddenly announce independence. Therefore, it would be concluded that the British officers resigned, which in turn would create massive problems for the Indian army with rarely anyone to lead an offensive. Finally, why should we all simply forget how India is still made up of hundreds of Princely States out of which many would be quite keen on becoming independent and which in turn would severely harm Eric and whatever hes doing. 

Anyways the point is that Eric shouldn't be allowed to just remove any edit that he does not like. "It's not going to suck itself." 17:32, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

I agree with Eric in that without a peaceful British intervention India snould be collapsing. Tamil people(as a Tamil myself) today in India identify themselves as Tamils and Indians. India will never be able to raise 2 million men. They would not be able to raise 2 million men properly, the idea of indian is non-existent in TTL. I agree that Eric is being too irrensponsible. 

Thisismacedon (talk) 23:09, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

Eric is just pretending that there is no war, but when he does react to the war he acts like he has won it already. The Partition of India was bloody enough OTL, without British oversight it would just be even more bloody and chaotic. This is what is happening. Also, Eric made a fictional person the king but then next turn decided that he was a republic without acknowledging any changes. I personally think Eric is unsuited to be playing this game. Also, Macedon, you can't just say Sri Lanka "is an artificial state". It exists and will continue to exist.

Sri Lanka is an artifical state since it tries to combine three ethnic groups(tamils, singalas and moors) and four religions(Christianity, Hinduism, Buddishim and Islam). Sri Lanka is dividing the Tamil people between Tamils and Singala where resently there was a bloodly civil war between the Tamil and Singala people from 1983 to 2009. Also the republic of Dravida just became so the Tamil people would love to join it.

Thisismacedon (talk) 01:42, March 15, 2015 (UTC)

While I would agree that Sri Lanka could be considered an artificial state due to its attempt to make various religious and ethnic groups work together, I doubt the Tamils would revolt. There was no significant independence movement in 1940s, and the Tamils were not antagonized until the laws that were passed to deport Indian Tamils as well make Sinhala the national language. These laws were passed in 1948, making it possible for unity to be maintained IF such laws are prevented. Make sure that the law that resulted in deportation of Indian Tamils in Sri Lanka was passed by the British, not the Sinhala. "It's not going to suck itself." 11:31, March 15, 2015 (UTC)

Eric has a habit of removing edits he doesnt like, he's done it before a few times. About the giant army, I sincerely doubt India could support that army while in a bloody civil war which is tearing them apart. Not only are Burma, Bengal and Pakistan revolting, but so are Hyperabad and Assam(IIRC atleast). Also, I think the fact that Eric's only reaction being: 

'REX, you are not becoming an admin of AvAR map game! '

says a lot about Eric in general. If this is seriously the only argument he can make then it proves his immaturity. He has also basically shown he is incapable of playing India, hell, incapable of even p;aying this game in general. Prinsenvlag Hail Sean! (Get a free potato here)

This is fucking bullshit. See the event I made befor the war started: Oil prices peak in January before steadily dropping to pre-depression levels as economies begin to retire. The Great American Depression is brought to an end, although Canada is still in shambles. If I was Godmodding, I wouldn't end the American depression before the war started. Furthermore, I gave America a large buff in Industry power (+20->+25) right before the war started. When the Canadian depression hit, I was trying to provide Tb a way to spur on revolution in his nation, be told me he didn't feel like Canada was doing anything in the game. I was still Colombia at the time and had NO IDEA I would be launching a war in 1951 as Britain. Flag of South Korea PitaKang- (Talk to me | Kill count: 6)

Pita causes disasters around the world (not that I have an issue with that, things happen), but he puts NA and SA into a depression, convinces Tb to turn over the British Navy to England, then after that conveniently decides to become the UK. That is my major issue with him. Then after giving several nations revolts, when Scotland secedes (Which it has tried to do multiple times, with several close votes), all of a sudden, that is not ok. Daeseunglim (talk)

Pita's a good mod, when compared to other mods that is. Crimson and Feud have not been any better, while Pita has been rather active and aggressive in combatting implausibility.

Britannic Nuclear Weapon

I don't know who it was, but someone crossed out my "nuke in 1952.5" announcement, claiming, "[t]hat seems highly unlikely to me. Your country had two revolutions and recently Scotalnd and Ireland seceded. No way in hell."

This person has clearly not done his research. First, I'd like to dispel any claims that Britain created a nuclear weapon only with the help of the United States. According to The Atomic Origins of the British Nuclear Deterrent, America (specifically President Truman) refused to share the secrets of nuclear power with Britain. This was cemented in the Atomic Energy Act of 1946, also known as the McMahon Act, which banned the sharing of American nuclear secrets with any country. Britain independently created its own nuclear weapon and conducted Operation Hurricane on October 3, 1952.

A revolution does not cancel or halt military projects. In fact, given the amount of penetration the Soviet Union had in the United States, it is likely that Britain heard even more nuclear secrets in AvA than in OTL and at least began considering a nuclear project earlier than in OTL. The secession of Scotland and Ireland also have almost no impact on this project as most of Britain's nuclear material came from Sellafield, located in England.

So yes, I will be detonating a nuclear weapon next turn. Flag of South Korea PitaKang- (Talk to me | Kill count: 6)

It is most likely because PATO is planning on waging war upon you. If you were to gain a nuclear weapon, it would be quite disastrous for the PATO Invasion Fleet as you would be in a position to annihilate their force. In case you were to use your nuclear weapons, it would most likely lead to nuclear retaliation by USA however that is not what Scraw wants. He most likely would not want to start a nuclear war but rather a conventional war, since he is capable of easily defeating you in the latter but would suffer heavy damage if it were to be the former. In simple words, whoever crossed that out definitely is in PATO and PATO is waging war on England. To say that it was crossed out simply because the mod deemed it 'implausible' is incorrect. A certain degree of bias also played its part. "It's not going to suck itself." 05:47, March 26, 2015 (UTC)

Woah woah woah. Calm down here guys. First of all, yes I am in PATO. But no, I don't care really. I'm not even contributing to the war, I only declared in honour of the agreement. Second of all, those are some pretty heavy accusations Rimp. Now. Pita, Britain went through a communist revolution, and then another revolution, and then Scotalnd and Ireland seceded. You know the main problem with this? The British economy would suffer under that, heavily. This Britain isnt the OTL Britain. Another mod can make the final decision now, but I stay with my own. Prinsenvlag Hail Sean! (Get a free potato here)
06:21, March 26, 2015 (UTC)

Comeon Sean, everybody loves a bit of conspiracy. Besides, Scotland and Ireland seceded had no effect upon British nuclear research as Pita has already mentioned. However, the Communist Revolution could particularly have resulted in scientists running off to idk... Canada? Could be possible.. But then again, during World War II; Britain suffered quite a lot but ended up developing its nukes nevertheless. Same could be said about Britain right now. "It's not going to suck itself." 08:50, March 26, 2015 (UTC)

Sean, I don't think you quite understand. The first communist "revolution" was nothing at all like the Russian Revolution. There was no nation-wide civil war, but a rather bloodless transition of power. The second one was quite similar - in other words, there was no catastrphic conflict to devastate government projects and such. Furthermore, North Ireland and Scotland seceding has less impact than you may think. Scotland is about 8% of Britain's total economy, and since we are engaged in mutual trading, the economic hit was not all that much. Instead of directly building ships in Glascow, Britannica is now contracting private corporations based in Britannica to do it for them, resulting in basically the exact same thing.

Another issue is that Britannica in AvA did not fight a catastrphic World War II. World War II completely disrupted the Britannic economy and lead to thousands of potential workers dead in the Blitz and even more dead in the beaches of Normandy. I'd actually say that they're at a far better position economically than in OTL.

You can reserach it for yourself, but I think you'll find that you'll come to the same conclusion as I did. A small portion of our enriched nuclear material did come from Canada (around 5%~) but that can easily be compensated for. Flag of South Korea PitaKang- (Talk to me | Kill count: 6)

Disscussion

Pita, you have a problem to look into. Opening the algo in different tabs/refreshing causes the algo to change. 

Vatonica and Wrto

Recently, these two players have switched their nations from one they possibly deemed unfavourable to one they liked. Now, the problem here is that their actions directly after switching have created some problems.

  • Vatonica: He/She joined as Yugoslavia in Turn 1952 and had soon initiated the persecution of every single miniority in Yugoslavia. It should be of particular notice that at this very moment, Yugoslavia was known as the Kingdom of Yugoslavia not a Fascist Republic. In any case, the minorities together outnumbered the Serbs but that didn't convince Vatonica to stop. In turn 1945.5, Germany declared war upon Yugoslav and the sinister mind of Vatonica came up with a plan. He posted for two nations [Japan and Yugoslavia] in the same turn. Moreover, as Japan; he created the Tokyo Pact. Then he posted a Yugoslav Dip to join the Pact, and then he went to accept the Dip back as Japan. Basically, he switched and then somehow had his former nation get into a Pact with his new one. Personally, I've no longer any problem with this as Germany has occupied Yugoslavia, however... This action by Vatonica has resulted in another player doing the same.
  • Wrto: The player has been playing as Ethiopia for quite a while and was famously known to have offered an alliance and also threatened to declare war on France, in the same turn. In any case, Ethiopia recently joined the Organization of African Unity (OAU) as well as the Tokyo Pact. Personally, I had no problem with either however; he then immediately switched from Ethiopia and joined as Egypt. It should also be worth mentioning that he posted for both Ethiopia and Egypt [Two Seperate Nations] in the 1956.0 Turn just like Vatonica. Moving on, in his first turn as Egypt; Wrto somehow overthrew the Popular leaders such as Muhammad Naguib and Nasser Gamal in apparently a coup d'état orchestrated by Japan and OAU. Now the problem starts here... Under QuebecanCanada who played as Egypt from 1951.5 to 1955.5, Egypt was a nation aligned to a West and one that supported Pan-Arabism. Even under otl circumstances, Egypt always supported Pan-Arabism and there certainly was no room for Pan-Africanism. If we were to look at Egypts turns, then we would learn that it had also signed a Mutual Defence Pact with the United States and supported a Middle Eastern Union with Saudi Arabia. In comparison, contact with Japan was completely restricted and the only contact with OAU was in reference to an NAP in Turn 1945.5. Therefore, I question the validity of the OAU/Tokyo Pact coup d'état in Egypt. If we were to go by this, I could just switch to France and announce a Communist Revolution. So personally I'd say that action needs to be taken to prevent players from unnecessarily changing their nation.

"It's not going to suck itself." 03:55, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

This is macedon was the original Ethiopian player but I agree that Vatonica is screwing around. Also Egypt's involvement in OAU does in fact seem kinda ridiculous. Anyway I believe players shouldn't be allowed to switch nations that frequently and have opposed it for a while now.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   03:58, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

Oh yes, you are right that This is Macedon was the original Ethiopian player. However, I believe he left for Dravida Nadu and Wrto joined in as Ethiopia instead until his recent switch. "It's not going to suck itself." 04:03, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

Every time I switched, I asked if I could switch. I did not persecute every minority, only the Bosniaks. I did not post that Yugoslav dip when I had switched to Japan; I think Wrto did. Wrto was Yugoslavia until they were captured, which was like one turn after he joined. I would never do that. Every time I switched, it was for a valid reason. The mods couldn't agree on what Canada was allowed to do, then Poland was captured, and then Ecuador had no ability to act independently of Brazil politically or economically. I liked Yugoslavia. I was going to stay with them. Then, when 3 major countries had their players quit to make a new map game, I assumed that this one would soon collapse, and would need to find new players for the major countries quickly. I asked if I could join as Japan, as Japan, Brittanica, and Yugoslavia were already secretly connected. I was given permission, and I posted as Japan, and Japan only, and removed my name from Yugoslavia. I know I jump around. But I always ask permission and actually switch. Vatonica (talk) 14:17, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

Also, Germany only invaded when I told Nkbeeching that I was no longer playing as Yugoslavia. Vatonica (talk) 14:20, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

Actually I never supported the coup in Egypt, and didn't know about it until today. As for the Pan-Africanism issue, Egypt was simply one of the founding members of the OAU, hence my support for it joining the organization. Nassar wasn't entirely a Pan-Africanism supporter, that's for sure, but he recognized and appreciated the impact the OAU had in African politics (remember Egypt is an African nation too). So Egypt joining isn't ridiculously. Now, I've already corrected the matter by expelling Egypt from the OAU, not for joining in the first place, but for the Japanese-led coup and the assassination of Nassar, which goes against the core principles of the OAU to prevent foreign interference in African affairs. The same will be done with regards to Ethiopia, which also had its government overthrown by officials loyal to Japan. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 19:41, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

I suggest reading over the past turns of the game. India, having revolted from the British, is subdivided into numerous statesalong ethnic and religious lines. The Phillipines are (I believe) controlled by the US, as OTL, and you'd have to ask the US player about playing as them. I'd recommend a little more practice in map games before playing as Japan, but the mods might decide differently. Shikata ga nai! 00:46, April 11, 2015 (UTC)

Algeria and Ghana.The River Nile-2 (talk) 15:06, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

wait, Iraq? I thought Iraq was a country that was posted under Turkey's posts. I'm not sure if they are a puppet/vassal/client, but that kind of confuses me.Tao64 (talk) 14:02, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Turkey is open as well. As for Iraq, it was temporarily a Turkish client state when Turks had helped overthrow the Monarchy, and allowed Communists to take over. As of right now, it is an independent and sovereign state although the Soviet Union does have a lot of hold over it. The map does not perfectly show the land held by Turkey as the Mapmaker (Scraw) wouldn't make changes in regards to Turkey because he didn't feel like it. In any case, Turkey annexed Aegean Sea Islands, Western Thrace (Including Thessaloniki) and Crete. It also maintains vassal states in the form of Cyprus, Lebanon and Greece. To generally see how the 'Greek' vassal state looks like, I'd suggest you search the Treaty of Athens on this wiki and the state referred to as 'The Turkish Republic of Greece' is the Greek vassal state. The rest of Greece (Excluding Turkish annexed land and Greek puppet regime) is held by Italy. Of all, if not most of the available nations, Turkey is by far the strongest so I'd suggest that to you.             Roman Crown   The night is dark and full of terrors.

Download speed

It is slow, archive some pages. 

Update required

The French colony of French Sudan became independent in 1960 as several states (Mali, Benin, etc), Nigeria became independent in 1960, Malaysia became indipendent in 1958, and Madagascar became independent in the early 1960s. A mod event is needed to fix this since France and England still posses them in 1966.The River Nile-2 (talk) 04:05, April 25, 2015 (UTC)

Year turn

You were late turning the year for a second time, so I turned it. I have noticed missed, late or erratic year/turn switch overs kill games.The River Nile-2 (talk) 11:11, April 27, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry to sound like the worst thing since LG going on about plausibility in in a World War 2 timeline, but the mods were not archiving so letting the download speed grow. Also late turning the year/turn, so I turned it. I have noticed missed, late or erratic year/turn switch overs kills games. Cuba and Burma have got new players; and Morocco returned since I did. I would like others, preferably the mods, to help on plausibility, mod events and algos. :-) The River Nile-2 (talk) 20:37, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

The big blue bit in West Africa, (French west Africa) should have become Mali, Benin and all that lot in 1960, unless France ATL changed things. The River Nile-2 (talk) 20:37, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
