Religion Map

I made this map, using the latest 1730 map, and the old Religion Map as a guide. I do not claim this to be official, but please add/edit/update it as you feel needed to do so. If the mods don't like this, please take it down, but I only want to help. Reximus55 (talk) 10:35, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

PMIIRel

Since Callumthered had asked me what was the situation of Catholicism on Europe, i went to do a coloured map of this.it got big, so now this became a incomplete world map.dark blue represents Kappelists, blue represents breakaway churches, light blue represents Catholicism, light green represents Nestorianism, green represents Islam, and yellow-brownish represents orthodoxy.it is still incomplete.Obviously, this is political too, as some nations will have some state religion, but the population will follow other one.Anyway, i don't know the Arabian Federation's state religion, to start with.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 07:48, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

The Arabian federation doesn't have a state religion, its dominantly Islamic though. Many branches of Islam though, but I'd say Sunni or Ibadi Islam to be dominant. VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 11:51, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean?--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 08:36, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Well, Russia is very wrong on that map. just look at the russia I made, and then you will see the real face of orthodoxy. you did your annexations horibly wrong. you made moscow a seperate state, and now Minsk is not longer in personal union. You should realy use my map, because at this point I think you just want an excuse to piss me off so you can purposefuly get me banned.-Lx (leave me a message) 23:07, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

The latter is not the case.in fact, i sometimes think that Scraw is being implausible just to have something to complain about, so he can get me to quit.We might be able to work this out, when it comes to Minsk.are you a hereditary monarchy?--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 08:48, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

Russia has an old novgorodian style Elective Monarchy. The Tsar was a firm believer in Russian unification, and once he gianed the title of Tsar of Minsk through marriage, since he wanted at the least unified russian realm under one Ruler, and he did not want his efforts to be in vain when he died in case his son did not become the next Tsar(elective monarchy) so he had the two Crowns linked, although he kept the title of duke of minsk to his own family, the title of Tsar of Minsk and Tsar of Novgorod and Russia were linked. I find it is good logic, but If that's too complicated you can consider it like an act of union/annexatoin and ignore the part about a seperate Duma being built in Minsk.-Lx (leave me a message) 20:32, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, this sounds like a goland to coast should be harder and slower, but inwards expansion from coast to land should be easier. (This means through black areas.) ~ Scraw 21:46, September 10, 2013 (UTC)

  1. In the algorithm, the development scores should range based on how much total, not just 15 years. For example, if a weak nation has +15 military and a strong one has a +5 even though it has one of the most powerful militaries in the world, this is not fair. Each nation should have individual development scores, which can be assigned everytime a map is made. ~ Scraw
  2. Dare I suggest moving at two years per turn? That would allow the game to finish in in one year instead of two. Commandante Lemming (talk) 02:40, September 11, 2013 (UTC) 
That all sounds good - I'm a little iffy on technical advances earlier for Asia as they would probably tip the balance in favor of Asia over Europe (which isn't neccessarily BAD, but it might be a bit unfair to players in Europe). Personally I was planning a PM3 strategy contingent on a mid-1400s start, but I think I can probably play in the same region with an even stronger chance of accomplishing my goal with an earlier start. My only question then would be whether a jump-start in technology would also enable a jump start in colonization. Just for the sake of gameplay, if we set colonization limits at 1500, some players may get boxed in and bored in the first 200 turns. I personally am not too worried about that (yeah I'm dropping hints) but I probably would be if my plan was to play a relatively small European nation in OTL France or Germany. Commandante Lemming (talk) 14:13, September 10, 2013 (UTC) All I know is that I want to be Florence. Also, I remember Scan wanting to be China in PMII.  CrimsonAssassin- "I have special eyes" 14:30, September 10, 2013 (UTC) Well if we're calling nations I'm looking at my options in Siberia as the Golden Horde starts to collapse. I think it's an underexploited region that would make a nice follow up to my Selk'nam adventure, so I may discuss what nations can be carved out at the point of divergence. Commandante Lemming (talk) 14:43, September 10, 2013 (UTC) For me, if we're going to start in 1350, probably i'll call Portugal again.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 15:12, September 10, 2013 (UTC) I'd like to call Korea next game if it's okay. -Kogasa Miko THPW2 Flag of Europe 2013 September 10, 18:00 (CET) I'd like to call Britain/England.Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk) 16:06, September 10, 2013 (UTC) I'd like to call Ethiopia once again.

If we're doing round robin - anyone have their heart set on Russia? I don't want it, but the presence, or lack thereof, of a strong Russia is going to be a big factor in my game, and if there is russian player I will want to talk to them before the game starts. Commandante Lemming (talk) 18:59, September 10, 2013 (UTC) Well he hasn't posted yet but I know that Lx will be pissed if someone takes Russia.

If there's a strong Russian player then I'll likely back off and build an Asian nation in the OTL Russian Far East. If there isn't, I might just play as the Samoyedic peoples in the Urals and stop the Russian Empire from forming in the first place. But if Lx wants to keep Russia then I'll build something further East (Actually, if Lx wants to have some real fun and we shift back to 1350, I would encourage him to play as the Golden Horde, prevent it's demise, eliminate the nascent Russian Empire at it's origin, and build a Muslim power in East Europe - now THAT would shake things up.)

The one and only Guns, who is too lazy to go to source mod and type out his real sig. (talk) 22:35, September 10, 2013 (UTC) I won't be taking an established nation. If I'm starting in 1350 in a baren wasteland I'm starting from scatch. I'm thinking maybe the Koryak peoples on Kamchatka could adopt Chinese and Japanese influeance and build a Buddhist Asian nation on the sea of Okhotsk - or Maybethe Evenks on the Amur River. That oughta be a nice suprise for the Russians when they arrive 300 years later :-) I'm playing the tribal game this time - it'll be even more fun if I do it from the get-go. And I'd be all for starting it now but not for wrapping up PM2, I want to finish this sucker out. Commandante Lemming (talk) 22:41, September 10, 2013 (UTC) I agree.             Regen Flag   "Fear the power of the Dark Side of the Force."  22:43, September 10, 2013 (UTC) Ik, that's what I was suggesting. Run 'em simultaneously. The one and only Guns, who is too lazy to go to source mod and type out his real sig. (talk) 22:44, September 10, 2013 (UTC) That won't work as the players will immediately move to PMIII and let PMII die. That's what happened to all the other major map games the moment PMII began. Also, Scraw when I read your rule proposal, it almost entirely mirrors the current war between Ethiopia and the Sino-German Alliance. There have been many examples of a minor power defeating a major power throughout history. Greece vs. Persia, Japan vs. Russia, Switzerland vs. Holy Roman Empire, any number of barbarians vs. the Roman Empire. By assign individual development points, that in and of itself is unfair, as it doesn't permit a minor power to grow and become a major power. England was at one point a minor power, and could have been destroyed by Spain, but it became a major power after facing the odds and dethroning the world power of that time. [[File:Flag of thod logic.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 21:27, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

Religion PMII 1835

As of 1835

Colors:

Catholic - Light Blue

Reformed Churches - Blue

Apostolic Church - Deep Purple

Kappelists - Dark Blue

Eastern Orthodox - Mustard

Ethiopian Orthodox - Yellow

Islam - Green

Nestorianism - Light Green

Hinduism - Teal

Buddhism - Pale Green

Taoism/Shintoism - Light Purple

Carthaginian Nestorianism - Light Red

So, after my last Religion Map was received pretty well, I have decided to make... another religion map! Along with this map, I will add a little bit of commentary, ever so boldly of myself following my latest ban! Anyhow, this is all to be taken in an ATL fashion, and not as a violation of NC/NC. As always, mods may feel free to remove this map or invalidate/change it.

So, lets go into a continent-by-continent ananlysis of the world map as shown by religion!

Europe - There is only one faith in Europe, and that is Christianity. But ever since the Great Schism in the late days of Rome, the Christian Church has been divided. This division grew even further with the arrival of Kappel, and the later reformation of German and Italian churches. Later even, Brython co-founded the Apolstolic Church, which is located out of Europe but centered in the Americas.

Religious Stability - Divided into 3 primary groups of Christians, 8/10

Religious Devotion - Weak faith is present in secular states like Italy, 6/10

Asia - Now, Asia is the largest continent, and also the most diverse religiously. Moving east from Europe, first Eastern Orthodoxy is prevalent, then Nestorianism in the Levant and in Persia/Baghdad. Next is Islam in Arabia and Central Asia, followed by Hinduism and Buddhism, and finally the unique religions of Taoist/Shintoist faith of Japan.

Religious Stability - Islam is falling, or may rise again?, 6/10

Religious Devotion - Strong faith in Eastern Asia, 8/10

Africa - By far the most prone to religious conflicts *Looks to mods for events* Africa houses a large variety of religions. South Africa, which had largely been Nestorian, is now shifting Hindu, and Mali still clings to Islam, although isolated by Christian nations. The unique Ethiopian Orthodox is common in the interior, and is most likely the most practiced African religion. Carthage's recent Nestorian conflicts are intriguing, and Madagascar still holds Islam dear, as well.

Religious Stability - Crazy colonization has lit a match!, 3/10

Religious Devotion - In order to survive, drastic measures may be needed, 9/10

Americas - I will not go into a ton of detail about religion in American colonies. Naturally, they mimic their motherlands. I will, however, express the distinctly American religion, which is Apostolicism. This religion, co-founded by the Selk'nam, has spread to encompass Kappelist beliefs, which have intrigued the average Mayan, and also now the Apache peoples.

Religious Stability - Devout Christians make the majority, 7/10

Religious Devotion - The Apostolic Faith in addition to motherland faiths, maintain religiosity, 8/10

That's All Folks! Reximus Maximus 09:43, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

Mostly good although only the Apache, not the Mayans, are Apostolic (not for lack of trying on my part), I think at this point Tojiko in Africa may also be majority-Apostolic although that's Kogasa's call. He's been building more churches than temples there lately. Also the south American Japanese ex-colony Byakuren has conerted to Buddhism from Shintoism - that's what spurred their independence. Commandante Lemming (talk) 13:48, September 26, 2013 (UTC) 

Actually, Byakuren converted from Taoism to Buddhism. As for Tojiko, they are a majority Apostolic (mainly Jīdūhist and Amaterasuist), with a decent amount of Shintoism. -Kogasa Miko THPW2 Flag of Europe 2013 September 26, 17:58 (CET)

I fix what Commandante Said, The mayans are mostly germanic and Keppelists. and Carthage is due to being Isolated, in the sense of religion,(Due to lack of contact with the Levantine) Carthaginian  Nestorianism, Influenced Heavily by Catholicism. Sine dei gloriem (talk) 16:34, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

Good fix but.

Tojiko (Japanese Aftrica in OTL Namibia) needs to be Dark Purple (Apostolic).

Byakuren (Japanese South Chile), should be Light Green (Buddhist).

Should Maya be Kappelist dark blue or royal blue Germanic.

Also a number of nations have regional religious divisions so we can talk about whethr that is good to include (for instance my West is Taoist)

Industrial Algorithm Modifiers and Industrial Era areas and rates.

I have a proposal to modify the algorithm to put into perspective the colonial wars of the 18th-20th century. An algorythm multiplier would be applied to all wars with the side with a higher stage gaining 10% extra for each stage higher they are. Nations with two stages use the higher when defending and the lower when attacking. Scandinator (talk) 04:59, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Discussion

I'm extremely confused. Also, I think the industrialization chart should be corrected, as Scandinavia has been vanquished.

I like this one better than it's predecessor, mainly beccause there are more divisions here, allowing for a more accurate representation of the country's standing. Albeit, there are a few things that could be amended. CourageousLife (talk) 16:22, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Same here. Much better. And what is confusing Scraw? It is pretty simple to understand once the map is up showing industrialisation levels. :D 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 16:27, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, it's for the map.
            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   17:16, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

It needs some corrections, as some characteristics are too late or too early for their times.Such as: We should move the appearing of railways to stage 4, and their spread to 5, to start with, After all, when we talk about railways, this implies steam locomotives, necessarily.And, steam locomotives in 1770?--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 17:04, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

That isn't too far-fetched. A viable steam engine existed in 1782, it just took a while(about 20 years) before people to realise it could be used for rail transport. A two-cylinder steam engine was invented by a Russian in 1766...it had great potential, and could have perhaps accelerated the development of the steam locomotive by a phew decades(maybe only 10 years to say: put it on a fracking train) but The Empress ditched the designs in favor of a more "Brittish" system(i.e. hydraulicaly cooled that required close water supply...this lagged locomotive construction). So...RUssians could have built locomotives in the 1770s...but the empress wanted to stay close to brittain, and brittish-style tech, so that slowed many things...and because of that, the twocylinder stam engine was scrapped.-Lx (leave me a message) 23:42, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Well, unlike the last game, the East is on better footing with the West, and thus will breed even more competition. I think this is completely fine if you ask me. 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 19:42, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

I've done the research in the industrial era. For whomever industrializes first, these technologies do not suddenly appear. It is gradual in within each stage. Scandinator (talk) 11:42, April 29, 2013 (UTC)

I would think that, like in PMII, crimson would be a fraction of the main natino around the nation's "heartland/capital" area, and the rest of the nation would get industry red. And colonies would industry get a colour under their founding nations, etc...  However, I am worried about the ammount of colours...in any case, I do believe that orange and yellow(or at the least orange) should get planes at the same time as red and crimson...technology and trade would change to the point that...well...those nations could do thema t the same time...-Lx (leave me a message) 18:43, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

I feel like one of these (red, yellow, orange) should be removed. Also, shouldn't Europe (closer to Italy) be receiving industrialization faster than the Middle East?

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   21:21, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

Not that the map is bad, but I would say that the coast and Dehli should be joined up as they are prime industrial locations. Doesn't really change anything, but it looks nicer, lol. :D 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 21:33, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

The Arabian Federation should really industrialize earlier than its vassal of Baghdad I think. Albeit just industrializing along the coastal regions like Oman and Qatar where the majority of my urban population lives. The Nejd won't see industrialization for many years later. VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 00:15, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

China would industrialize quicker than the yellow rate due to their extensive trading, especially with Orissa and Italia. CrimsonAssassin (talk) 17:20, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

I too feel that China should be in orange.

I also find it strange that both Georgia and Austria are in orange while Germany itself is in yellow. Not to mention that Germany was higher than Russia on the chart and closer to Italy than Russia.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   21:25, May 22, 2013 (UTC)

Aren't any of these going to be addressed?

I'd so something about it since I'm a mod, but I'm not sure if I have clearance for this map. CrimsonAssassin- "You can't handle this egg roll" 18:20, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

You know, I'll edit it since, not only does it seem like the plausible thing to do, but worst-case scenario, they'll revert it and yell at me a little. CrimsonAssassin- "You can't handle this egg roll" 16:53, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

I think there should be less of orange China, as lots of those areas would be presently unsuitable for industrialization.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   22:58, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

It's just a buffer between red and yellow.

I actualy posted before, stating my desire to, for the moment, be set as a russian nation, seeing as we do not know what the start date would be, therefore almost impossible to form strategy as a response to Leming's first querry on Russia. unfortunately, editconflict happened and I closed laptop as soon as I saw page reloading(most of the time meaning edit was submitted, only to find out now it did not go through. The Muslim GH option looks like it might be interesting, to change things up(i did despotic Muscovite russia, now i'm doing mercantile, democratic novgorodian russia)...but i will wait first so that I know what time period. For the time being put me down as a russian state(due to the fact that different time periods yield different balances of power in russia and in eastern europe/northwestern asia in general)-Lx (leave me a message) 00:56, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Oh right, another thing, we probably shouldnt start PMIII before PMII finishes...running two (extremely) similar map games simultaneously, and expecting people to pay as much attention to one as the other is an absurd idea. you can at best hope for half copy-pastey and half actual edits, with the ones copy-pasting in PMIII actual editing in PMII and vice versa, and an eventual loss of intrest in one or the other, to the detriment of both. I want maximum success for both games, so I humbly suggest to wait out PMIII untill PMII finishes.

On a completely unrelated sidenote: I am posting this here because I know ceveral BFE contributors are also PMII contributors. you do not need to read this if you are not interested in Battle for Earth.The New BFE map game was delayed and never started due to summer and many people being gone...this should not be the case anymore...It would be best if people running the game would know who is still in, and perhaps new people that would like to join, please say so on the talk page of Battle for Earth Strikes Back. I want to start this up ASAP, and ask players to at least add a bit of history to the BFE: Prime Timeline, and do some personal alien nation history(or human nation history with alien artifacts left behind...) to add to the BFE Universe. -Lx (leave me a message) 01:06, September 11, 2013 (UTC)


Well Guns, if you're really itching for action, PM2 itself has a bunch of prime real estatem, especially in Central Asia, why not jump into the sandbox? I know the timeline has gotten pretty complicated and some weird moves have been made, but that happens with any game. I know I'd personally love to have a Persian or Dimurati player back in the game, that or take over one of the "ASB" colonies and see what you can do with it. You know you want to give in to the crazy. 200 turns isn't that long and the game could proably use a little new blood. Seriously though, we need more people who want to do serious alternate history in this game, it would enrich the timeline, and I think you could have some fun until we get PM3 going later.  Commandante Lemming (talk) 02:40, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

I also advise against Italy and the Ottomans. Italy will have two powerful nations with players in there already (me and Crim), so not the best move. Ottomans are randomly dead. I suggest a small state in Central Germany to get you started.

Naples was captured by Aragon in 1442 by Alfonso I. Even then, it was a dependency. Athens, on the other hand, was captured by Aragon in 1311. However, Florence captured the city in 1388. After some wars with Venice over the city, Florence finally came out on top and controlled the city until 1458. CrimsonAssassin- "I have special eyes" 00:46, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

In fact, you cannot play as the Ottomans if we start in 1350 because OH HEY THEY DIDN'T EXIST YET.

Othman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire (ish, until ~~1420 it was disorganized and unimportant) was born in 1356 so ATL wouldn't be born at all; thus no Ottoman Empire would exist.

But I recommend we start in 1400 anyway because that was around the founding of the Kalmar Union.

Special NPC bonus nations

Hey so these nations are special Non Player Countries because these nations used to be part of a powerful empire which ruled lots of the world, hence they are stronger than normal nations.

This bonus is worked out like the normal NPC bonus; where in every very year that a NPC nation is not at war or expanding, or having a disaster, it will build up one of the three development areas (military, infrastructure and economy). The number of total buildups will be divided into the three categories as evenly as possible, with preference going infrastructure>economy>military. With their final score will be divided by two then rounded to the nearest whole. However the special NPC bonus doesn't divide by two, so it is just the number of total buildups.

E.g. If a nation existed for 15 years, or spent 15 turns not doing anything, this would mean that the infrastructure, military and the economy were updated in five turns each. The NPC nation would receive fifteen points of bonus, five for each department (economy, infrastructure and military).

The nations with this special NPC bonus are as follows:

The Middle East

  • The Republic of Turkistan
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad
  • The Sultanate of Kuwait
  • The Kingdom of Dimurat
  • Mangystau
  • Ha'il
  • Buraydah
  • Khafji
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Ar Rayn
  • The Arabian Federation
  • Oman
  • The Emirate of Shaybah
  • The Caliphate of Hejaz
  • Najran
  • The Emirate of San'a
  • Aden
  • Hadhramaut
  • Salalah
  • Socotra

Africa

  • The East African Federation
  • Sukuma
  • The Kingdom of Nyamwezi
  • Mbeya

Protectorate rules

Seeing how some nations are getting protectorates I think we should make the rules about them clear. As far as I'm concerned they aren't as good as vassals so they should be treated as NPCs in the algorithm, but the protecting nation should always help out their protectorate in any wars they are in and if you don't then the protectorate treaties will end as you failed to protect them.

Extending there treatment as NPCs you can't post turns for them either, and they can only give +1 to algorithm strength scores as (P) and they must be close to where the war is happening otherwise they don't get involved (e.g. Normandy's Mogadishu protectorate can't send aid to Normandy's wars in Europe).Protectorates get a -3 algorithm penalty in all wars due to their reliance on their protector.

They are shown in the colour of the protecting nation on the map so players know if other PNs are protecting them, and also you can only have a maximum of 5 protectorates. If you have 3 or more protectorates you also get a war algorithm penalty of -2 for having protectorates as your military will be stretched trying to protect these far off nations. It'll take a 4 year minimum to establish a protectorate too. You can also then peacefully turn your protectorate into a vassal or puppet after 15 years of that nation being your protectorate. You can do it sooner than 15 years if you like but an algorithm will be needed.

Thoughts on these new rules? VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 18:24, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

I think that this is good enough.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 06:51, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Okay and also they should expand like NPCs since players can't post for them and because the protectorate is weak relying on another nation for protection.

I'll add this stuff to the rules page in a few days to give other people a chance to comment on these new rules. VonGlusenburg (talk to Von!) 21:30, July 7, 2013 (UTC)


PMIII Proposal

Hey all. PMII is in its last 200 turns and boy has it been a ride. I have a few ideas I wish to share for PMIII. Anyone else is free to add their own ideas so long as you sign after them.

  1. Earlier start time. We have had 1420 and 1450. I think its time to unwind to 1350 for some more interesting situations worldwide. Scandinator (talk)
  2. A slight rewrite of the algorithm to include national unity (or something similar). Scandinator (talk)
  3. Debuffs for all areas of the world until they fulfill a set of requirements. Scandinator (talk)
  4. Rethink industrialization concept. It was good on paper, but was rather sloppy in its execution. Some prior forethought into the matter to avoid the confusion and debate in the next game would be nice. Vivaporius (talk)
  5. Improve and refine colonization concept for PMIII. While I agree that it rather water-tight as of now, I think some further discussion on the matter as to how to improve it would be a significant development for the future game. Vivaporius (talk)
  6. Allow further technological advances. Of course the system now is good, but if nations in Asia become world powers, the progress of science is a whole load faster, especially if the government emphasis is on the subject. Otherwise we will be stuck with laptops in 2013, not building terraforming stations over Venus. ;) 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 06:51, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
  7. Firm (but hopefully not restrictive) rules on expansion and colonization for tribal nations (Selk'nam, Koori, etc.) and non-OTL powers (Ethiopia, Maya, etc.). Address in advance whather or not European and Asian nations get special privileges to avoid recriminations and arguments over whether non-European powers are to be considered ASB. This seemingly has been a major problem in this game, with certain players demanding that African/American/Oceanian powers be allowed to rise. and some insisting that European powers should not be subject to off-continent attack, or that they should always behave as superiors when relating to non-Europeans. Commandante Lemming (talk) 17:40, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
  8. I would like for there to be at least one mod who does not play as a nation, who would be completely unbiased. They handle the algorithms where one or more mods are in the conflict, so there's no way that it could swing one way or another because of what user is playing. CourageousLife (talk) 20:29, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
  9. Expansion from I would like to call something Mongol, maybe the Golden Horde.
Monster Pumpkin (talk) 19:39, September 13, 2013 (UTC)
Lx may take Golden Horde but you could probably have some un with split-off in Siberia - that or unite a tribe like the Buryats or Yakuts in Siberia. I think I've setttled that I'm playing as the Nivkh people on the Amur River so OTL Russia could be crowded. (which I like) Commandante Lemming (talk) 20:16, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Mod Discussion on Points

Scandinator

  1. Earlier start time would mean a new scenario. 1350 means Europe is at its lowest point while the Middle East is collapsing. 1400 means the Middle East has collapsed while Europe is at its most fractured. Both present interesting options for gameplay and opening moves.
  2. National Unity is important as if there are multiple ethnic and cultural groups unintegrated into the nation then there will be dissent and rebellion within your nation at peace and at war. However this will be hard to implement and maintain.
  3. Debuffs. The regions and nations of the world were good and bad at various areas. Certain areas fielded excellent cavalry, others had immense navies while others had archers and infantry beyond compare. Each area was ahead in its own field but behind in others; until you manage to work around it then you are weaker in a certain way in the algorithm or in another way.
  4. I fully support a rework of the industrialisation chart and implementation. Stricter guidelines and harsher penalities for those that step out of plausibility are also required. Some of the steps on the chart were only achievable near the end and it was obivous that some people were doing things just for the table and hadn't done research into what was possible or not.
  5. A rework of the colonisation system is also required. We have tiny nations like Cyprus with large colonial empires. True there were cases of such in OTL but they were single territories and/or scattered islands (Belgium and Holland). Im unsure about how to go about this though...
  6. Technological Advancement beyond OTL is a good point and should be implemented although carefully monitored to avoid exploitation.
  7. Firm rules on continental expansion are required especially for tribal nations. Mods should be very strict with the original size of the nation. In addition, continental expansion rates should be of a proportional value to the main nation instead of the current one value fits all.
  8. The idea for a neutral mod is good but implausible. They would soon lose interest.
  9. Im not quite sure what Scraw means, but currently all black land is the same, it completely ignores terrain. I believe that expansion in deserts, mountains and other difficult terrain should be slower while coastal and river expansion should be faster and easier.
  10. An algorithm rework on that scale will be open for corruption and misuse. Population covers for that at the moment
  11. Nonononononono.

Kogasa

  1. To be honest I liked it better starting around the 1400s. I think the next game should start in 1400.
  2. That can possibly work.
  3. I personally like to think that any nation I play, unless I mention something different, goes on similar to OTL. That includes industrial.
  4. I agree. What Scan said above.
  5. I think colonisation is fine the way it is now. But that's just me.
  6. I fully agree with this one. Why be limited to technology OTL when we have industrialisation earlier than OTL?
  7. Again, what Scan said.
  8. It would be difficult. I disagree.
  9. Once again, what Scan said. Actually now thinking about it, my expansion on Kamchatka was limited due to terrain, and I couldn't expand the full 10000 sq km maximum (it was cut to 5000 sq km maximum). But I guess that's a different story.
  10. No. I agree with Scan above on this issue.
  11. No.

CrimsonAssassin

  1. It's Principia Moderni (beginning of the modern) for a reason. 1400 is a good start date.
  2. This is going to be a pain to work in. I remember trying to integrate stability into algorithms in PMI not going very well.
  3. This could be interesting, but I don't think it should be a debuff. I think we should reward players for completing goals (like Italy unifying or Britain having a huge empire)
  4. This
  5. What would really help is a mapmaker for Europe and one for Asia.
  6. This
  7. What Scan said, but also we shouldn't give non-European powers special treatment.
  8. He/she would lose interest quickly
  9. What Scan said
  10. From what I've seen, most people who aren't in PM say that they haven't joined because they think it's too late. It's never too late, of course, but with a rule like this, new players would quickly be overwhelmed. Even with an NPC bonus, it'd be a pain.
  11. No

Collie Kaltenbrunner

  1. Both 1350 and 1400 are good start dates.But i favour personally 1350.
  2. This is a good idea, but wouldn't it be difficult to implement?
  3. What is that?
  4. I agree with Scan again.
  5. I guess so.
  6. We should be careful with that.
  7. I agree with Scan.
  8. No, it wouldn't work.for instance, in PMI, by the 1950's, i basically had lost all interest in the game when the expansion possibilities had ended, and the only thing keeping me from leaving was the fact that i still needed to make the maps, and even then, my posts became strictly copy-pasting.Okay, this might not be the best example, but you get the point.Why somebody would try to moderate a game that he has no involvement on?
  9. I agree with Scan again.Expansion through the Appalachians and the Sahara, for example, really should be more difficult.Also, inland Africa and Australia, up to a point.
  10. I will go with Scan's opinion.
  11. And the scale of posts would double, since we would have two years in one post.For some, nothing would change, as their posts are already copy-pasting, but some would be stuck with walls of text.And then we would have to rework the algorythm and the colonial system, just for starters.Your idea had good intentions, but it is simply impracticable.

PMIII Changes

  1. The start will be in 1400. I advise no-one to take the Golden Horde or the Empire of Timur the Lame. They will all be broken-up to smaller states as the Golden Horde is too disunified and the Timur Empire, too reliant on Timur himself for stability.
  2. In the light of national unity being ignored in PMII. It will be integrated with expansion.
  3. There will also be special algorithm modifiers to work for. Examples include the unifications of France, Iberia, Italy, UK, Germany, Scandinavia, Russia, India, etc. With each of those worth about 1-5 points while you hold it. And the control of key trade routes and points, like the Oresund, Gibraltar, Malacca, Aden, Venice, Bombay, Hangshou. etc. With each trade area worth an extra 1 or 2 points.
  4. The industrialization chart will be reworked and any nation that attempts to get the points ahead of time or without an appropriate reason will be heavily penalized.
  5. The colonial system will be reworked based on distance, security, and naval and economic strength.
  6. Technology will be allowed to advance past OTL but will be heavily monitored. The Industrial Era will start in 1700 like PMII but depending on which nation's get it sooner, then the process can be accelerated and we might need Mars and Moon maps.
  7. Tribal nations will start as that. One tribe, no larger than 4 px in areas with good land and about 100 in desert and badlands. Expansion from that will be at either 1% of current size or 1px, which ever is bigger. (Which will also be the rate of land expansion for all countries in their home continent.) You can convince other tribes to join you which would take several years. Thanks to this rule, nations like the Koori Union will be unable to form and expansion will be based on your current size and not the one size fits all policy that PMII has. I believe it effectively shows the challenges that tribes face in attempting to modernize and catch up from hunter-gatherer societies to a centralized or feudalized kingdom and nation.
  8. Terrain will be implemented on the map for colonial expansion.
  9. Start time will be changed back to 00:00 UTC to prevent confusion.

Discussion

All these points seem pretty good. 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 11:56, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

I still prefer 1350.We should do a votation among the mods for that, as there are still some mods (Yank) who haven't expressed if they prefer 1350 and 1400.Scan is fine with either of them, and Kogasa and Crim prefer 1400.for me, 1350 is a more interesting scenario, and prevents us from dealing with Dean as the Timurids, or something like that.The rest sound like good ideas.But i think that if we implement terrain on the actual map, mapmaking will be much more difficult.terrain modifiers are important, alright, but there must be another way of implementing those without complicating the mapmaking process.And i think that technology advance should not be too far from OTL, otherwise PMIII will eventually fall into the ASB category, and this means that the game is a failure, no matter how long it lasts.I remember Imperial Europe II.that's the best example of that.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 15:49, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

I would like too it too start in 1350 and if i'm allowed to say, for national unity you should give some sort of bonus, for a period longer that 15 years. that or add a score per the times a nation is bigger in size than the nation they are fighting.

I actually agree with firmer tribal rules, but I have to say this suggestion is a bit restrictive for those of us that play that game. I really don't think the goal should be to PREVENT something like the Koori Union from forming but rather to force it to take time and Normal steps toward civilization. For instance, if Hail had started building hte Koori in 1400 with the goal of making them a standalone civilization by 1700, I think that should be achievable. A lot of us play with the express goal of forcing a major flip in the progress of history - that shouldn't be impossible, it should just take a lot of time and patience. As an addendum, not all "tribes" are created equal. The group I plan on playing in PM3 is significantly more advanced than the Selk'nam when I started and could eaily be made more powerful with just a few tweaks to the Progress of neighboring China and Manchuria. If the goal is to force the game to flow along the OTL timeline, what's the point?  Commandante Lemming (talk) 19:31, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

And is nobody going to comment on my other suggestions, or: if we implement terrain on the actual map, mapmaking will be much more difficult.terrain modifiers are important, alright, but there must be another way of implementing those without complicating the mapmaking process.And i think that technology advance should not be too far from OTL, otherwise PMIII will eventually fall into the ASB category, and this means that the game is a failure, no matter how long it lasts.I remember Imperial Europe II.that's the best example of that.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:19, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

I do think limits on tech are a good idea - some advancement ok but not sure how moon colonies would look - there are space-themed games for that. I don't do mapmaking so the use of terrain is up to y'all. Commandante Lemming (talk) 20:32, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

This feature is, in and of itself, implausible. We must strive to make nations without players just as formidable as nations with players. I will also suggest more mod events.

Discussion

Rex / De Mor Tir

Hey all - saw the stuff about Rex. Just so you all know, I have a long standing deal with Rex that he can take over the Falkland Islands (De Mor Tir) as an independent nation if he gets blown off the map. If he doesn't get banned, I'm going to honor this deal with the condition that he stays my vassal and that he doesn't start any wars of expansion (he wouldn't have the military force to do so anyway). He's interested in playing this nation and interested in staying in the game, and seeing as he'd be essentially playing a nation on par with Hong Kong or Singapore in OTL, I think it's a good "training nation" for him regarding how to use  soft rather than hard power. I'll take responsibility for whatever he does, and part of the deal I offered him is that if things go South I will take him out myself. 

Hopefully that's a significantly harsh deal to keep him in the game - I really do think he can be a positive contributor here.

International Time Standardizing Conference

Ohai. Neu Berlin, inspired by Russia, has decided that the whole dangfangling world needs to standardize time. All heads of state or government are invited to meet in Neu Berlin and discuss how time should be organized globally. Neu Berlin proposes a +x -x system like Russia, but centered on another city. Neu Berlin proposes the cities of Venice, Novgorod, or Neu Berlin as the location of the zero hour.

Neu Berlin, even though majority Christian, says this is offensive, since many nations, Neu Berlin included, have no state religion.

A Selk'nam delegate becomes incensed at this remark and declares that he wishes to "take the proposal from the honorable delegates from New Berlin, wad it into a tiny ball, and personally shove it up their blasphemous rear ends!" This delegate is immediately removed by his fellow Selk'nam negotiators, however the Selk'nam stand by the proposal that the zero hour should not be held by any major power's capital and should be located between major powers. Another proposal is made seeking to draw the line through the middle of the Atlantic as to give no-one primacy - with the main clock being located on the Portuguese Azorean islands. Commandante Lemming (talk) 22:32, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

The Most Holy Emperor of Ethiopia, while intrigued by the idea of having the zero hour at Jerusalem, believes that it should be centered on Venice for the following reasons: Neu Berlin is not relevant enough to be granted that honor, Jerusalem is too closely associated with a single major religion, and finally, Venice is the dominate power of the globe and has thus earned that honor by right. We have made our position. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 03:36, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

The Saxon delegates believe that having the "Prime Meridian" in the middle of the Atlantic ocean is the best option. Contrary to what Neu Berlin says, this would not cause any problems. All that would be required is for one clock in every maritime city be synced with the time at that oceanic meridian. Ship's chronometers would then be synced to those clocks, therefore allowing them to determine their longtitude compared to the Atlantic Prime Meridian. Callumthered (talk) 03:43, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

Japan has problems. 

The Selk'nam point out that the Azores option would prevent any nation's mainland from holding the meridian (the only other landmass on the Prime Meridian would be Greenland). This would not be the case with Bermuda, in which case the Meridian would bisect Atlantia an run through New Berlin. The idea of a mid-Pacific meridian is questioned as there would be few nations close to the meridian given the ocean's size, and also the greater isolation of the Meridian island.

Bavarian Germans agree that it is to be free from the mainland grasp of any world power, including Italia and Germany, and thus the Azores would fit better.

Selk'nam delegates note that the Azores would work well with the "date line concept" as the "date line would only run through the Russian Far East, and would pass between Austalis and the Maori Lands (it's only a one time zone offset from OTL, only country on a different side of the line is New Zealand). However, it is noted that the Azores Meridian could also be used as the dateline, caluculating "true midnight" rather than "true noon". Under the proposed "True Midnight" method, the date line would be at the Prime Meridian and time zones would be numbered from UTC +0 just East of the meridian to UTC +24 just West of the meridian (In OTL we separate the meridian and the dateline and number zones from UTC -12 to UTC +12). It is suggested that the "True Midnight" system would be a more efficient solution to the date line problem as it would merge the Prime Meridian and the dateline, and the dateline would then only run through the Azores and Greenland. Commandante Lemming (talk) 17:13, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

Disscussion

Labelled Map/20th century plans

Just because this gets brought up every now and again - is there any way to do a new labelled map since our last one is like 200 years old? Is thre any way to crowdsource it to take work off mapmakers? I know my territories confuse people and a few others confuse me.

Also, since we're about to hit massive tech advancements and a lot of changes, should we have a discussion about who's planning what for the 20th Century. I know some of that is strategic and secret but I know some of us probably have plans that we don't mind putting out publicly because we know others will want to help - I know I have a few of those that I don't mind everyone knowing about becasue I think you will have fun with them. So is there anything I can help all of you with? (or fight you on to give you a straw man?). What are everyone's national priorities moving past 1900? I think we can probably have a better 20th Century if we have collaboration on events.

The Selk'nam are going to be very interested, as are Yagich Rafael - but the most interested are going to be the Attican Union who have recent experience with Pure Science dictatorship and see the neighboring Pure Science states drifting into the equalist orbit.

Non-Equalist

  • DIE EQUALISM DIE! ~ Neu Berlin, Kanada, Novomoskovsk, River Lakota, Ostkasodan, Kasodani, Greater Transcaucasia
  • Don't mess with us and we'll be fine - Portugal, León, Castille, Aragon, Majorca, Barcelona, Navarra, Granada, France, La Marche, Brasil.
    • Spain, France and its associated or component kingdoms hold the same ideological position of Germany as to it opposition to equalism, but don't wish to have hostile diplomatic relations with the Equalist nations unless they (the Equalists) choose to be hostile.
  • While Equalism leaves a bad taste in our mouths the Scandinavians will not directly go to war with the Equalists unless they are the aggressors. That being said we yearn for the day that the nations affected toss aside their ironically tyrannical Equalist governments in favor of more democratic forms of government.
  • Imperium Africana and the Fifteen Dominions have no desire or plans to join the Equalist movement. They move past our borders, and they die.
  • Hesitant about socialists, really don't like Equalists (read: Italia). Don't want any trouble - Mayan Empire and associates
  • Gang Federation
  • Selk'nam Haruwin (Liberal Democracy)
  • Yagich Rafael (Liberal Democracy - anti-Pure Science)
  • Attican Union (Liberal Democracy - anti-militarist - Radically anti-Pure Science)

Relativist

  • Germany and the Commonwealths of Poland-Slovakia, Afrika, Britannia, and Australis are all Releativist nations.

Socialist

  • Russian Governement run by a Socialist(45%)-Menshevik(less-militant Equalists)(12%) Coalition controling 57% of the seats in the Duma
  • The United Maharajya, Dakshin Maharajya, Rajputana, Khmer and Uttarshina are socialist but we really do not have much qualms with either side. Kinda like a NAM perhaps? Although I never really liked the idea of a NAM so won't happen. So where was I? Oh yes, Socialist and the people will continue to elect the socialist government until they screw up real bad.

Pure Scientist

  • Praetorate of Pure Science (Radical)
  • Praetorate of Eternal Matter (Pragmatist)

Equalist

  • UER and associated states :P
  • Dengyu Union (China and her associates)
  • Myanmar

United Maharajyan victory. Seems like the tanks were scary enough (because they are a sign of industrial powress) and so they could topple the governments.

War lasted three years. The United Maharajya capture 35% and almost exclusively take the land toward the eastern state and the border toward uncivilised lands. This allows for the United Maharajya to be able to expand into the black areas.

I need the motives as to why the Attican Union, the Selk'nam and Yagich Rafael are declaring war.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 18:08, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

For this algorythm, i'll be considering the Allied Forces as the defending side, seeing as the Praetorate attacked first.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 18:12, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

The Attican Union is invading because an Attican ship was blown up in the Wales bombing and becasue they see the Praetorate as a looming terrorist threat next door - the Selk'nam and Yagich Rafael are invading because they have alliances with the Attican Union, because they see the Praetorate as a military and terrorist threat based on their rhetoric - and in the case of Yagich Rafael because the Praetorate has started a needless war with them in the past.

Also - how do we calculate military development. I put a lot of effort into building up my military for the last few centuries - although I've slacked a bit recently to focus on industrialization. So should the Selk'nam score really be zero?

Yes.military development is counted only for the last 15 years before a war.I checked your posts.There is nothing about military except in two Praetorate posts.You are lucky that your coalition is defending instead of attacking, which puts your 15 points for each of your nations in infrastructure (industrialization counts as infrastructure) to good use.

And About the motives, once again this is a case where there is no appropriate score on the motives for that.I'll give you all a 5 for moral reasons, which is also the score i attributed to myself in the motives (because Portugal doesn't want resources.just revenge.There is no score for that.).--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 21:07, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

OK - all sounds good and thanks for the tips - I usually try to avoid these algorithms at all costs anyway but nice to know how I stack up and why (and I'm only participating at all becasue I'm on both sides and becasue it's a purposeful suicide for the Praetorate).  Commandante Lemming (talk) 22:23, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Well, according to the results, we still would need two years for taking them down.in which level of industrialization the Praetorate is?--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 08:17, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

I mean, it won't make that much of a difference in the results, but Saxony said from the begining that it was giving "materiel support" to the alliance. Callumthered (talk) 10:54, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

I was told that the Praetorate would be yellow on the map due to proximity to Africa - but I haven't written a lot other than "Industrialization deepens" since about the 1860s or so. You could put then as high as Stage 5 but I got a late start so they could be lower. Will focuss more on this element after the war and getting them all up to 5 and 6. Commandante Lemming (talk) 15:44, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

I think that they would be Stage 3 or 2.Is this good enough? we still can use the industrial bonus to heighten the Allied score.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:32, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

I know I'm pretty junior around here but I have to say it's a little suspicious that random mod events blew up Lx's empire (again) right as he was going on leave - creating a bunch of newly independent areas right next to the territory of the mod who created the event...which of course Lx will not have time to revassalize before he comes back, and which Scandinavia will of couse be able to vassalize immediately. I realize that this game is subjective and mods rightly have a lot of control, but there should be some sort of firm rule against mods doing that. God-modding is bad enough but god-modding the destruction of other people's territory to expand one's own territory is a bit beyond the pale. I usually try to stay out of this sort of thing, but this is way too far of a leap. Can we at least get some sort of firm promise that these ex-Russian vassals won't become Scandanavian vassals before New Years or something? Commandante Lemming (talk) 20:33, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Discussion

Germany falls into the specially made Equa-Socialist catagory because Germany is a democratically elected constiutional monarchy, that currently has a super majority coalition in the Reichstag made up of the Equalist and Socialist Parties. Germany has long been socialist leaning, despite the decade or so of ant-eqaulist feelings that almost led to the nation's ruin. Germany is neutral in any conflict unless an ally (eqaulist or not) is harmed. Germany seeks to maintain positive relations with all nieghbours and was among the first to recognise the UER, despite anit-eqaulist sentiments at the time.Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk) 23:33, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Now that you lost your colony in Siberia, I don't see any reason for you to invade that isn't hoarding territory, but I see that you've been awfully generous to your opponent. --Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 06:57, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

I take my chances where I can get them. As you have seen, I haven't been the aggressor for quite some time. Taking Chad was a strategic move since I needed my landed linked together. This, however, is to prevent Equalism from spread like a bad rash. However, your right. I have been awefully generous to my opponent. Time for a little total war. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 18:31, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Then why are you sticking your fingers into the pie as well? Are you too not being equally as aggressive?

I know this has nothing to do with this, but, are you going to be able to host the 1912 Olympics? because you are leading the election with only 43 minutes to closing and you seem kinda tangled up in this war.Hey, maybe i should ask more people.Hey the rest of you guys involved, are you going to participate?--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:16, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Off course I'll host the Olympics. I just need to finish this conflict. Shouldn't be that long. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 20:25, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Again, about the motive, the 5 is the closest i could come for the motive.The algorythm does not count ideological reasons, and i thought the best number for that was a 5.Because considering the reasons they give, None of the pre-existing motives apply.It can't be 3, because it isn't about resources, it isn't life or death, and none of the 5-7 zone strictly apply.You know considering how many wars we are going to have because of this, we should create a value for ideological motive if it is not under other value. --Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:30, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

If that is the case, the +5 should apply for ideological reasons. Ethiopia is fighting to prevent the spread of Equalism, as it is a danger to Monarchism. China and Germany aren't, their only fighting to stop Ethiopia from expanding, which isn't ideological but political. Henceforth, political motives should recieve +3 as they are never truly a reason to fight a war. Also, China doesn't possess a 75% industrial majority over Ethiopia, nor is it two levels ahead of Ethiopia and its allies, who are orange and yellow, while Germany is orange, and only China proper is red. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 20:39, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

That 1.5 is no industrial bonus.Is the bonus that the Far East Republic received due to its very recent government change.I thought you had added this bonus when you did this algorythm, if it was you who did it.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:55, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Wasn't me. Also, German Afrika expanded each year for 15 years incuring a -15 point penalty, while the Gang Federation expanded once in 1903 and again in 1911. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 21:00, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Your correct, my bad. Afrika expanded in 1906-7 and 1909-11. The Gang Federation expanded in 1903, 1905, 1909, and 1911. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 21:28, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Ah.ah, and the generosity part was because the first draft of the algorythm was so filled with errors to favour the Far East Republic that, assuming that it was you who made the algorythm, i thought that you were so sure of your victory that you were purposely omitting your own values.But really, you could have gotten some stupidly high scores if the original algorythm was done right.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 21:17, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

The scores aren't stupid. I've expanded only five of my dominions for 15 years straight, henceforth their not leaders in the conflict. The motive accurate as were the mil/econ points as I never ceased expanding them. I fought only one war prior to this, which took place more than 15 years ago, and all of my nations are more than 100 years old. Ethiopia became the Imperium in 1792, and my dominions were merged with each other around the same time. So my points are accurate. So I omitted nothing, but its cute that you think so.

Understood. Sorry. But the original was correct and was 212 to 27 (if I recall correctly).

Guys, keep it civil. 20px Labarum CrimsonAssassin- "I have special eyes" 22:44, December 10, 2013 (UTC)

Ye, you still have to get past big bad China, who is sitting on the doorstep of Siberia with equalist tanks ready. And I mentioned Australia, but that still doesn't take China into account. Yes your colony was important; it would have allowed for a land invasion. Also, I have a nice little colony just a few hundred kilometers away that can serve a handy little naval base. And yes, your colony was important because it would have given you the advantage of a land invasion. And just bordering someone isn't a reason to invade them.

Also, there's still the concern of anyone who's not a Eurasian nation controlling SIBERIA. Your colony? That was fine; it was small and functioned as a decent trade port. The whole of Siberia? No. Australia, the Americas, Africa, and Europe for that matter, should not have any influence whatsoever over Siberia. Europe just gets a free pass because Russia got there first, and because China has demonstrated no interest in it.

LOL. Nice try Scraw. But I can add any dominion I wish. Dominions are any self-governing colonies that can support themselves. Eritrea has a large population as do the others, as well as the means to support a conflict. If you have any doubts, tiny little New Zealand contributed 125,000 troops to the fighting in WWI, yet it had a population of 1.1 million. These dominions are much larger population-wise, and far more industrialized. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 00:58, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

In order to be a leader, they have to be able to reach the front on their own. So landlocked countries can be an M, at most. And population isn't even an important factor; size and economy are.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   01:07, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

Funny how you come up with new rules out of nowhere. If size and economy are a factor, then all of my dominions can join in the battle since as I stated before, dominions are self-suffient colonies of the empire. And the Thai were able to contribute to the fighting in WWI, yet their economy was weak. However, they recieved the honor of walking beneath the Arch d'Triumph with the Allies at the end of the war as an equal to the other armies. So your point is moot. You can't really come up with new rules on the spot because you don't like the idea of a swarm coming after you. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 01:24, December 12, 2013 (UTC)
How in hell Chad is supposed to be a leader? And where are these Merinas you speak of? Can Nunavut even raise an army? Can that army get to Siberia via Nunavut's navy (if it has one). not Ethiopia's navy? This is so implausible it's not even funny. We all have a shitton of nations but we don't make all of them leaders. Two of my nations are landlocked; so I can't put them as leaders unless they're invading a nation that borders them and is smaller than them in terms of land and military. One of my nations can barely raise an army that can lead an invasion on its own; it can only provide men and supplies via another of my nations. Besides, just admit that using all these nations is just cheating for extra development and motive points. If we keep four or five of your leaders, your score goes down significantly.
            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   01:34, December 12, 2013 (UTC)
Chad rose an army the same way it did in WWI and WWII. These Merinas I speak of are in Madagascar. Nunvavut sent volunteers as did the other Artic nations since they very well can't send a full army. Your still basing your argument on your beliefs and preferences, which I could do very well without. Britain had 15 dominions, and all of them fought in Britain's conflicts. That doesn't include the bucket load of protectorates and puppet states it had fighting as well. And let's not lie Scraw. You had all of your vassals as leaders not long ago when you were still in Europe. And Von had all of his vassals as leaders in the 1720 conflict. And Scan also had a huge number of leaders when he fought in a war, as did AP and Fed. Your argument is invalid. I've long been waiting to say that. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 01:47, December 12, 2013 (UTC)
And yet you forget that all of lands were under attack in those giant wars. Yep, every single one of them. Phillippines and Mysore by Imp. Mainland by Andrew, Callum, and Scan. Neu Berlin by Scan. Central America by Scan. South America by Scan and Imp. Yep, all of them.
On the real world side of the spectrum, all the British dominions had coastlines and sizeable populations, allowing for support. But we would not mark them as leaders unless they actually declared war on the enemy. Which most (Canada, New Zealand, Aussie, South Africa, etc) did in WWII because they actually could. For the other colonies, like Lesotho and whatnot, they relied on other dominions and nations that could be considered leaders to reach the front. Which means that they aren't L either.
Also, sending volunteers really doesn't count as L. Ask someone else if you're not sure. Really, it's common sense to know which nations can be a leader and not.
And let's face it, you're using 3 in 500 chances to back yourself up, as you always do.
            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   01:59, December 12, 2013 (UTC)
And yet you forget Von attacked me, not the other way around. AP was never attacked since he was too powerful. Fed's Caliphate was always on the offensive, and most of his lands were too deep to reach. That meant the Caliphate's vassals were never attacked at once. Also, if you remembered, Nunavut and the surrounding lands were never leaders, but that they were M. And you've just answered your own statement. The lands that Britain had as supporting leaders had coastlines. With the exception of a few large dominions, all of my lands have coastlines. Darfur and Chad are huge and can fight on the same level as the other dominions militarily and economically. They may require naval support, but they are quite capable of serving on the same level as their fellow dominons. They can buy their own ships to serve as transport. OTL Ethiopia is landlocked, yet it has a merchant marine anyway. And what's funny about those chances is that they work and they can be proven. You can't complain since those chances always appear to be in my favor, according to yourself that is. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 02:16, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

You're taking what I said the wrong way. This war is so implausible, it's borderline impossible. I was saying that we disregard the outcome and cross it out like any other severely ASB turn, replacing it with one that was more plausible. 20px Labarum CrimsonAssassin- "I have special eyes" 01:17, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

I understand what your saying Crimson, but I'm still a bit concerned about the disregard of the community's disregard of transport of the time, replacing it with the general belief that Siberia is inaccessible to every other nation on the planet regardless of their abilities to reach the region. Italy, France, Poland and Czechoslovakia all contributed troops to the invasion of Siberia in 1919. The Czechs sent 50,000 men to fight in Vladvostok, and they were landlocked, yet clearly capable of reaching a city literally on the other side of the world for them. So its entirely possible. But you'd have to know that to say that. So your insistence that Ethiopia couldn't reach Siberia is as ridiculous as saying the Czechs and the Poles couldn't, even though, according to the facts, they did get to Siberia. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 01:24, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

Please Ganon, prove me wrong. Since you know so much, which historical facts are wrong? It'd be quite interesting to see this. I can back up what I say, I'd like to see you do the same.

I feel I should have posted this earlier, but no matter. According to John Bradley's The Czechoslovak Legion in Russia, 1914–1920, there were 50,000 Czechoslovak troops the participated in the Allied intervention in Russia. The same book states that 53,455 soldiers, 3,004 officers, 6,714 civilians, 1,716 wives, 717 children, 1,935 foreigners, 198 others returned to Czechoslovakia from Vladivostok using 21 boats purchased from the United States and Great Britain (12 American and 9 British). The Polish 5th Siberian Rifle Division is a military unit that the Poles used to fight in Siberia, and later went on to form the 30th Infantry Division of Poland. This according to Jonathan D. Smele's Civil War in Siberia. That division was made up of 17,000 Poles, not counting the other 15,000 that fought elsewhere in Southern Russia. So this in effect shows that my "facts" are facts. Done. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 07:45, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

The Czechs and Poles were prisoners in Russia that revolted get your facts straight. Simply put your numbers are inflated and you are being ASB. In addition your population is hugely inflated. You would not be able to support those number on Africa with 19 hundred tech. HELL Africa today is at about 1 billion only. With Chad and Darfur, they are huge but they are barren and low density, the tech and the population isnt there for them to fight a war on the other side of the world. Scandinator (talk) 14:50, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

I'm sure the same link I used said thoses were the numbers, unless you can prove otherwise. And your latter point is as valid as saying that Switzerland and Austria can't sent their troops to go fight in Iraq because their landlocked. Africa only has one billion people due to the vast famines, wars, diseases and emigration on the continent. Get your facts straight. Plus, since this is alternate history, Ethiopia was able to get around the history population issue by countering droughts, dealing with pestilence, and using medicines that prolonged the average life expectancy of a citizen. If droughts, disease, war, and famine were befalling you nation each and every decade, wouldn't your population take a while to grow? The fact that you have difficulty comprehending that disturbs me. I'm quite sure the world was shocked when the first city that reached one million people didn't collapse under a wave of human waste and pollution. People adapt and thrive.

Darfur has been controlled by Ethiopia for two centuries, more than enough time for an advanced nation to develop the other. It has the tech and the population, as the f***ing list above you states (it appears I forgot to add Darfur to the list). Chad had nine million people, so I don't know where their "population deficency" is. And your assuming that their population is dispersed across a broad region. If the majority of the land is barren, then would the population reside in packed areas like in OTL? In fact, to prove how moronic your statement it, Greece had a population of five million in 1914, yet it invaded the Ottoman Empire with a force of 200,000 men. Greece was poor and technologically backwards by world standards of the time, and most of the country was mountainous. Yet it was still powerful enough to launch a major invasion of another country five times its size, and its population resided in large urban areas since they had too. 

You can't say anything since Crimson himself stated that China's ATL population is much larger since none of the major rebellions that ripped out chunks of its OTL population never happened. So he has 100 million more people thanks to the stability he's had. Your ardent need to adhere to real life and ignore any and all possible changes in alternate history, labelling them ASB, are both unfair and irritating. Your lack of knowledge on historical events or geological facts (such as stating that the Czechs couldn't be in Siberia or not knowing that Zaire had $24 trillion worth of mineral reserves) is also irritating. Every source I have read states that the Czechoslovak Legion was 50,000 men strong. I don't know if your blind or slow, but even Wikipedia states that's how big the legion was. So I don't know what numbers I was inflating. You base all of your arguments on OTL, then you tell everyone else that OTL doesn't matter. I don't know if your liars, hypocrites, or just dumb, but your inability to accept that you could or are in fact wrong is saddening. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 18:14, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Yes but you do not have the right to have a population size AS LARGE AS THE ENTIRE BRITISH EMPIRE AT THE TIME. By your numbers being inflated I meant your population. In addition, Darfur and Chad have had years of prosperity, Greece was under Ottoman rule for 5 centuries; they had a powerful reason to attack the disorganised Turkey that was in total chaos with the loss of all of Mesopotamia, the Levant and Arabia. Chad today has a population of 12 million and your Chad is smaller. In addition I do not appreciate the name-calling.

It should have been done when he transfered anyway. Russia can get Ukraine and Byelorussia back, and the Kazakhs never left.  Yank 03:57, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, their fighting with clandestine Ethiopian military and logistical support. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 04:55, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Plus there's the fact that Korea wasn't Pita's to take anyway. It was already controlled by China, and thus Crimson. I'm just returning it to it's rightful owner.Yank 04:49, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Lovers' quarrel? Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan"

It should be specified that unless a player is inactive no one may take his nations. Which, despite what Lx thinks, doesn't apply to those that have declared independence. Crim, while he posts infrequently, is not inactive. Therefore Korea wasn't available for Pita to take in the first place. Yank 04:55, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Wait, so unless the user is inactive, nobody can take one of his colonies and rebel? I can smell the BS in this rule already. I would rather play as Korea but I was pressured by Yank to switch. So which should I play as? Flag of South Korea PitaKang- My Life for Aiur! En Taro Tassadar 09:52, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I don't post infrequently. I post sporadically. Pita, if you really want to play as Korea, go ahead, but I really would prefer if it was kept close to China diplomatically (meaning keeping Equalism).

The reason why you got Baltica back was because you had spent the time necessary to get them back. Now you just assume that they are under your control. That is against the rules. The rules state that to vassalize an independent nation you must spend at least 4-5 turns doing so. Both me and Andy have followed the rules, you have not. Yank 20:11, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Its not like now he just assumes this.He always has done this when he lost territory, but to a smaller degree.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 21:03, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

All that proves is that Lx has a chronic problem with following the damn rules. Yank 21:07, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

I remember his reaction to that mod event that split his nation for the second time back in 1850.He posted something to the effect that he got the lands back with no effort, and barely acknowledged the event's existence.And i also remember the first time that his nation got broken up and his reaction then as well.After the Caliphate's breakup, he and the other guy who played as Muscovy (what was his name?) started to complain because they didn't got all of Russia back to them instantly, as it had then split into many city-states.The other guy even left the game because of that.And don't even get me started on the 100 years (i think) of complaints about the map.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 21:03, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Like a spoiled brat he has a history of complaining when he doesn't get his way. It would have been better if he had went the way of Muscovy's player. I remember then both complaining that a few of the post-Caliphate states shouldn't have existed because OTL says they shouldn't have any cities to use as capital. Only an idiot uses OTL to justify something ATL. Especially when things could have changed in TTL. We have finally told the spoiled brat "No" and he can't stand it. Yank 21:18, December 13, 2013 (UTC) Yank 22:34, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

THose are the things I never get, and whenever you are proven wrong, you just pretend like it never happened. I feel like leaving will just endulge your god complex yank, so I'll try and hold out for as long as I can. THis is the SECOND time you destroy russia implausibly without any explanations and by being extremely disconnected from reality. This is also the second (or perhaps third) time that you destroyed russia and took some of its land, benefiting form my absence. How is that being spoiled?

read Collie's posts before you bitch about how unfair I am.Yank 22:47, December 13, 2013 (UTC) Well, Yank, being the aforementioned player of Muscovy, I can happily assure everyone here that, in the word's of Vinny, "Everything that guy just said was BS."

Neither I nor Lx EVER said anything about the Calipahte's cities; we complained that they took over a nation around the size of the USA, with the third best military on earth, with almost every single citizen trained in some sort of martial arts, in one day; and for the record, Lurk agreed with us, and later stated that it was implausible.

Then we complained that despite the fact that all of our territories except Poland were ethnically Russian, apparently, the Caliphate collapsed them all into little itty nations and then refused our request to have some sense of plausibility. I believe I put Von's actions, at the time, as a declaration of "God and ASB", and dammit, you are doing the exact same thing right now. You're breaking up an empire that has no reason to collapse in a single day, with neither the player's consent nor any real grounding in plausibility.

And to think I once defended your modding against Scraw on chat.

I dearly repent that now. You have taken what has become a fairly ASB, and pushed it past the point of no return.

I thought that's what Von and Fed had done, last time, but I was fortunately wrong.

WIth you, I very much doubt it. 

As I said when I left: Let this be a reminder of a time when men were real men, nations were real nations, and Principia Moderni was a plausible map game.

Eastern European Conference

I decided, in the spirit of diplomacy, to form this conference where the parties of Germany, Scandinavia and Russia may air their grievences in regards to the questioned soveriengty of Esti and Baltica. Please, let us attempt to keep a civil tone in this discourse. Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk)

Germany feels, as Batlica rebelled away, and has been steadily influencing Baltica for approx. 6 years now, that Balitca is now a soveriegn Commonwealth of the Democratic Commonwealths of the German Empire. Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk) 21:35, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

THis is beond diplomacy. Yank is godmoding and had a grudge against me, and he has the attitude that he can do anything and get away with it and I cant do jack shit to stop him.-Lx (leave me a message)Azarath Flag 22:25, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Centuries of you acting like a brat need to end now.Yank 22:34, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well there goes diplomacy.... Germany pulls its delegates. Its obvious this is going no-where.Trust Me, I'm The Doctor (talk)

I can't believe this actualy has to be a sectiuon

Well, it seems that, despite all logic, we have to clarify a phew moderator rules that I was led to believe were plainly obvious, but now it seems that we have 2 options, one of which we need to add to the rules in the moderator section to clarify many things. I think the answer is obvious and that this section should not have existed in the first place, but obviously this is incorrect

Option One

  • Moderators can not destroy another player's empire for their own personal gain(sime enough, you can't make mod events that benefit you at the expense of another player)
  • Moderators can not destroy another player's empire for their own personal gain(sime enough, you can't make mod events that benefit you at the expense of another player) </p>
  • Mod events must, as player posts do, adhere to the laws of plausibility
  • Moderators can not cause civil wars from monarch deaths past the early 19th century(this is about the time people almost universaly respected rule of law over largest-army diplomacy)
  • Moderators can not cause total destruction of an empire in one single event. THis type of thing nver happened overnight, and took many years, Empires do not fall for no reason overnight, there must be buildup
  • Moderators can not cause a complete declaration of independance, the most they can do is cause an armed revolt, which the player may chose to accept terms, or use military algorithm to retake, just like in the begining of PMII and end of PMI.
  • Moderators can not target one player for no particular reason time and time again.
  • If any of these rules are broken, and with no logical explination, players may submit an impeachment request if they were on this wiki for x ammount of days and have y ammnount of edits, and will become an impeachment hearing with one moderator's support.

>simple enough right? most of these were "unwritten rules or uderstandings" from what I gathered, but anyway, here is

Option two

  • Moderators are INfallible. Their word is law, and they are god. You don't like it? tough. Moderators have absolute power, and there is nothing you can do about it. We adore and uphod godmoding, and if you dont like that you should not join.

Can I get some input on this?-Lx (leave me a message)Azarath Flag 22:32, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well, this has pretty much degraded into multiple pop culture references. 20px Labarum CrimsonAssassin- "I have special eyes" 01:48, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

I'm revamping the rules slightly for PMIII. Voting to impeach mods via a proper procedure will likely be included as well as a set criteron for said impeachment to be acknowledged. In addition I will be a lot more active next year and I'll keep a much closer eye on the game than I have this time round. Scandinator (talk) 04:18, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Lx, Option 1, but The Great and Powerful Collie Kaltenbrunner doesn't trust your fifth and sixth points.

(Just thought i would jump into the pop culture reference bandwagon, but i am partially serious.The other points are fine, but the fifth and sixth need fixing; Some nations should be independent from certain others and no player is going to willingly give up their territory.If is only up to the player to determine the outcome, he is never going to lose territory unless it is some territory he never cared about.Of course there are going to be some certain players that would accept their possible losses, but most would react as i said.And plus, some certain players [*cough*DeanSims, Octavian Marius, Janisary*cough*] really deserve moderator targetting for their repeated implausibility.Of course, not everybody that is implausible sometimes should, but those three are the best examples of players who seemly just don't get the concept of plausibility, regardless of how many times we explain.This is the kind of player we shouldn't have.)--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 09:47, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

It's low. I think the FER's relations are respectful to it's neighbors, and it has been recognized by Germany. It's in what was a chunk of Russian Siberia. Whatever the FER is, it is definitely not a threat to Russia. Definitely prime underdog territory here! Yank 01:40, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Alright then, can I get it added to the map? Flag of South Korea PitaKang- My Life for Aiur! En Taro Tassadar 01:42, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

I'm thinking that the Far East Republic/Greater Siberian Empire can be used as a convienient place for all those local Siberian tribes to be sent. Yank 02:03, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Yank, how can you call me the one who's trying to make Pita do what I want? Anyways Pita, Russia is currently in the process of (not in control of) vassalizing the area. Also, Collie refuses to put it on the map. idk why. The population is one million or something, but it has a decent two or three pixel coastline. Not sure if it'd be frozen or not.

Also Yank, the FER has those Siberians already so plz.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   02:30, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

I am not refusing to put it on the map.i didn't put in the map originally because i thought that it was going to be reabsorbed by Russia quickly, so there was no use for that.The Ethiopia debacle didn't help matters (was there any resolution to that?) and now i am waiting for you guys to decide whether Lx gets it back or not.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 17:03, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Russia shouldn't be able to vassalize a nation already controled by a player. He did the first post on vassalizing them after Pita had already posted. The FER/GSE has the former Russian Pacific coast. I still don't know why there's any need to vassalize when they're clearly not a threat. Also , once again, Germany has given them diplomatic recognition. Yank 02:36, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Also I'm just giving Pita some ideas. Nothing more than that. Yank 02:37, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

OK, let's get this straight.

  1. Pita was not legally the FER when Russia started vassalizing it.
  2. You then resolved this via cheating via mod event.
  3. Now you expect everyone to believe that it is not a threat to Russia. I would very much like to see what you would do if you had the bulk of your territory lost as well as one coastline.
  4. So? One recognition a nation does not make.

Also, that's bullshit:

"Definitely prime underdog territory here!"

The sentence is screaming "HEY PITA YOU SHOULD TAKE THIS NATION JUST SO WE CAN PISS OFF LX AND THEN I WILL BREAK HIS NATION UP AGAIN AND WE CAN INVADE IT FROM BOTH SIDES!"

So please, do not try to pass this off as innocence.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   02:42, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

The bulk of the Russian population is still in Russia. Is this going to be the next Eesti? I fail to see how a nation with a fraction of Russia's population is a threat to Russia. Yank 02:54, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

It's still lost territory you idiot. Everyone wants their lost territory back. What would you do if you lost everything north of Stockholm?

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   02:57, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

I could say the same for you, but I won't. I don't think it'd be too much to ask Pita for a trade agreement. And you resorting to personal attacks only convinces me I'm right even more. Andy's trying to be diplomatic, but you're ignoring him to spit insults at me. Yank 03:21, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

Therefore in four years the Socialist Alliance wins in the Russian Front and bring the region to peace. The regions in Yellow are under Scandinavian control. The lands of the north can either be made into a vassal, puppet state or intergrated into the nation. The rest are Orissan control zones - apart from the Capital District which will be under joint control currently and will be the current focus of reconstruction. The rest of the nation is under 3 zones - with the central zone being most populated.

Sorry, no 1.6 bonus for you. I too am of the orange industrial level.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   04:21, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Rules state a 75% supermajority of nations is needed to gain the 1.6 bonus if we're on the same level. As of the moment, I maintain the needed 75%. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 04:28, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

No no no. You're misunderstanding how this bonus works. You do not have the 1.6 bonus. This only applies if you are on different industrialization tiers. Since you are on the same tier, the bonus does not apply. Using the 1.6 bonus would imply that Scraw is 6 tiers below you, which is not the case. CourageousLife (talk) 04:41, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Nation age is an average, not a sum. CourageousLife (talk) 04:42, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Furthermore, all of your contries may not be counted as leaders. They are either vassals, pupppets, or in dynastic union. Vassals and Unions must be contiguous to your main nation. Any puppets have points deducted for this war. Vassals must be denoted, regardless whether they are a leader or not. CourageousLife (talk) 04:48, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Dominions, are by definition, self-governing nations in union with the government of the mother country. So dominions can serve as true leaders (L/like Canada, Australia, and South Africa), while vassals can serve as vassals with leadership status (LV/like Newfoundland, Nepal, and Ceylon). Also, the nation age is applied to every leader on each side, not as an average. This can be seen in numerous coalition wars of the past. As for industry, rules state rather precisely that a 75% supermajority is required for any bonus. It was stated by Von that industrialization bonuses go as follows: you must either by two levels ahead of your opponent, or possess a 75% majority over your opponent if he is of the same level. This topic was brought up in the recent past, and this was the same explaination I used then. So I misunderstand nothing. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 09:05, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

"These differences are that location and nation age scores are done as an average of the coalition e.g. Nation A has a location score of 4 and Nation B has a location score of 2. Thus (4+2)/2 = 3, meaning the location score for the coalition of Nations A and B is 3." - Directly from the rules page.
As for the supermajority, it doesn't matter if Scraw has a supermajority or not. Your bonus depends on the average of his industry. You can't just discount the fact that his nations are industrialized as well.

        Centriflag   Flectere si nequeos superos- Acheronta Movebo!  22:52, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

America didn't annex Iraq or Afghanistan because there was no reason too. The goal wasn't to establish a 51st or 52nd state, but to establish a puppet government that would do the dirty work for use. Less expensive too. Plus, it really wouldn't look good on television or on the news. Just sayin'. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 23:14, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

        Centriflag   Flectere si nequeos superos- Acheronta Movebo!  23:19, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

The goal of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan wasn't to conquer anything. Furthermore the United States was not at war with either of those two states. If anything, they are currently working with those states, fighting insurgency groups opposed to the United States. Around this time in OTL the United States was able to ships troops across the world to Europe during World War I, so I believe it's feasible that we could do the same (in the other direction in Ethiopia's case). Mscoree (talk) 23:35, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

And why can't all of his nations be leaders? A good majority of yours are. You can control what nations are and aren't leaders in your coalition, but the other side also reserves this right. CourageousLife (talk) 04:24, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'm going to call this completely as I see it. This war was 1) unprecedented, because there was no logical reason to attack, no building tension, no obvious prejudice, except for that flaky excuse about minerals and 2) more personal than the agressor's party is willing to admit. The prejudice against Scraw is from real life encounters and has no business in the game. CourageousLife (talk) 04:21, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Here's another thing you neglected - "Only two new colonies are allowed per 50 year period. The maximum number is seven at one time, two of which can be "large size." Large colonies are larger than OTL Peru (1,285,216 km2OR 25,704 pixels. No exceptions."

Those colonies are larger than the amount allowed. You can avoid this by claiming they had dominion status. However, this would entail adding your non-colonial expansion. CourageousLife (talk) 04:41, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Basically, what I'm saying is that this war is bull. There are so many things wrong with it, it's astounding. So, I'm going to continue to critique it until it is a structurally sound algorithm, like the algo mods should, if we had any non-biased individuals that were willing to help. CourageousLife (talk) 04:44, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'd just like to say that this reeks of massive issues I really don't want to see in PM3. Firstly this algorithm is wrong beyond all hells, whether it's misunderstanding or something I don't know but maybe mods should be in charge of making them. Also there are mods seeking to eliminate certain people from the game, metagaming quite a lot. To reduce this you should choose a smaller select pool of mods who have never or rarely acted in a bias manner. Democratic voting probably really won't help you decide this unless you gave everyone a pro and con vote and they had to use one on each candidate.

Just saying a few things because it'd be terrible to enter into PM3 with lots of metagaming, friction and lack of respect for rules and I really want PM3 to be good. KunarianTALK 10:22, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

When in doubt, complain about the algorithm. Well there are three people who disagree with you. There's no metagaming or rule breaking, as for one, you haven't named any rules that were broken, just that we broke them. Second, Courage, you jumped to the defense of Scraw in the past several times, proving that you are by fact of past actions, biased toward Scraw in regards to protecting him. When AP, Rex, myself, Imp and Fed were attacked, you gave not such outpour of vigorous defense, but sat back and watched. Why should we take your word when your actions have proven that Scraw's survival is in your best interests? Also, in response to your previous statement on dominions, you've seem to have forgotten that Ethiopia only has dominions, a fact that has long been known. You can't say its breaking the rules or some other nonsense, as this has been a well known fact for the last 135 years of the game, more than enough time for you to grasp that Ethiopia doesn't have any colonies or vassals. As for Kun, you have not stated exactly what's wrong with the algorithm, only that its "wrong". Care to explain, or continue to use vague details to stir negative reaction? Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 14:09, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

It's technically not my job to jump on all of the implausibility because I'm not a mod here. Give me a badge and it can happen. The reason I jump on these wars is because they directly affect me. If you've noticed, Scraw and I haven't always been on the same side, and I jumped on those algos against him, but I'm checking this algo because it directly affects me in Antillia. I'm not going to try and make him win if it's not plausible. But you can sure as hell bet that I'm not going to let him get pulverized by an algo that is unfair. As for the dominions, they very may well be dominion. I'm just saying that if they're expanding like colonies, that colonial expansion needs to be represented on the algo. Lastly, don't make this personal. Calling out my character is really unclassy. Any more attacks on me personally, I will consider harrassment. CourageousLife (talk) 14:53, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
Unclassy or not, it doesn't matter. I'm not taking it personally, but I'm stating facts of the past which are relevent to the matter at hand. I could have called you out on harassment for all the previous personal attacks against me, but I didn't because I knew how to ignore it. Don't hide behind some flimsy excuses to avoid criticism, its unhealthy. As for the algo, look at the past. Crimson and Scraw's algo against me and Imp was unfair, and it was very well known that they cheated. But no one stood up and said so. Scraw was your neighbor. Now I'm your neighbor. This is the new status quo. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 15:21, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
That's it, right there, what I'm talking about. You said you only stated the facts, but this post just proved otherwise. I rest my case. CourageousLife (talk) 15:28, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
Exactly fact didn't I state? Those are facts. Crim and Scraw did cheat. Scraw was (<- past tense) your neighbor. Are those not facts? Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 16:27, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
If I was focusing on the information you stated, those are claims. However, I'm not focusing on that. In addition to the claims you made, whether true or false, you were stating things about me as well. These are childish tactics, attacking the user as opposed to the actions you don't agree with. I don't care if you make claims about cheating all day long. Like I have said, leave me out of it.  CourageousLife (talk) 16:53, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

This was my brainchild (sorry Scraw) and this is not how I intended for it to turn out at all. Are you kidding me guys? I was going to leave Scraw a rump state - most of East Antillia cannot be held past the 60s. If the world power will lose its republic on the continent - so will everyone else. I need to go check all this and see what the heck happened. 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 14:35, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

What happened was the Yank, Mscoree and I planned and launched an invasion of Scraw, which would have included Andrew if he hadn't gone on vacation (he planned to join us). However, since he wasn't here, we had to go on without him. Scraw isn't gone, and he's now a rump state in Caucausia. So your plan worked, just far ahead of scedule. I plan on holding East Antilla well into the future, I can assure you of that, and I already have contingency plans lined up in the event someone tries to take them away.

My color is orange as the orange coloring is in Ethiopia. According to the rule, all of my dominions get one color lower than the motherland. And I don't see why you can't read the rules to the 75% requirement, but I'll indulge you. Von during the Ethiopian-Arabian War: "I'm not including the industrialization bonus because only 1 of the 10 nations in your coalition has it, whereas the other 9 nations are either the same industrial level or a lower level as our coalition nations. Thus they cancel each other out." You happy now? Also, that map is 200 years old. At the time, I didn't control any of those lands around Ethiopia, plus I purchased Scan's colony in Somalia, which was red. Ethiopia's industrial power has exceeded what the map says now, which I've been trying to tell the mods to update. Your still orange and so am I. And to explain how stupid that rule is, if the United States was going to invade another country, would it make sense for it to have its most advanced weapons produced in the shabbist factories? No. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 18:00, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Even with what Von said, I do not see where this 1.6 comes from. If anything it ought to be 1.1 for the multiplier. You do not go up a level for conquering lands of higher color. I speak from experience. When I seized land from Imp, Von made it very clear that I could not be red. I agree with you in that it is quite nonsense, but rules are rules. Even so, Scandinavia is a leader and Scandinavia is majority green.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   18:03, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

1.6 is the number used since I've reached Level Six on the industrialization scale. I was already orange to begin with, and that's the same level i am right now. However, since I still outnumber you ally wise, my industrialization bonus remains. As for Scandinavia, Yank is majority yellow since the green portion only makes up a fourth of his empire's industrialization. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 19:15, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I too am of the orange level. All my leaders are completely orange, with the exception of Kanada.

I checked out the rules of both PMI and PMII, and there is not rule saying the defender is two levels higher than the attacker industrially. Only that you need a 75% supermajority to get any of the bonuses. I looked up and down for that rule, and it doesn't exist. Unless you can give me a link or a quote from the exist page, I can't help but feel that you've lied Scraw. No matter. With Orissa jumping it to help, your defeat is sealed. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 21:35, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I have not seen this 75% nonsense, I have only heard it from you. If you could provide a direct link to Von's statement I would shed my doubts. Meanwhile, here is a link to lower/attacker higher/defender:

http://althistory.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Principia_Moderni_II_(Map_Game)#Industrial_Algorithm_Modifiers_and_Industrial_Era_areas_and_rates.

First paragraph under the heading says that the attacker uses the lower stage and the defender uses the higher.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   22:20, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Of course you didn't hear about it. You don't read the rules. In the "Coalition Wars" section, paragraph four: "Furthermore if only 1 nation has a bonus (e.g. an industrialization bonus, height bonus, popular revolt bonus, etc.) then it cannot be applied to the entire coalition as all nations in the coalition may not be as industrialized as the other side. You need a Supermajority of 75% to gain these sort of bonuses, e.g. 8 nations of your 10 nation coalition have a popular revolt bonus, meaning the whole coalition gets the bonus." And regarding your point about two levels, that was a proposal, not a rule. And on the grounds of the same "technicality" you and Crim were so eager to exploit, since your outnumbered 7-to-1, this should be a automatic defeat for you. I'd love to see you use the same defense I tried to use when that happened. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 23:02, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I asked Scan on Skype. He said that's how it works. Here's proof:

Scan










            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   23:11, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Well of course Scan said yes. Scan's the one who proposed the thing. Plus, Scan's proposal was never approved by the rest of the mods. What I think is funny however, is that you conveniently left out the fact that you don't have the 75% required by the rules. Your still outnumbered. You denied me my industrial bonus for your war on the same reasoning, so being fair and all, the same should apply to you. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 23:57, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

I don't need the 75%. You do. I am only one person; you are part of four.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   00:05, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, I am the four. This is a coalition of Ethiopia, its dominions, and allies. 90% of it is me. As for you, its rather odd that your facing two world powers and its allies, and think that you can win. Logically speaking, you shouldn't be able too. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 03:27, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not beating you. You're beating me. By how much is the argument. And as it stands right now, it's not by much.

Now, if we could just a get a few non-participating mods in this, that would be great.

            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   03:30, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, given that Imp is in the game, and he hasn't commited everything to the fight, the war isn't over yet. You will be sent to the Caucasus. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 03:36, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

What everyone seems to be forgetting is that Scan's proposal included the industrialization bonus as well as the stipulation about higher and lower scores. There is no other rule giving a bonus for industrialization. If you recongnize that you have an industrialization bonus, you are choosing to accept the other terms of the proposal as well. So, either you get a bonus using the higher-lower rule, or you choose to forefit the bonus completely. CourageousLife (talk) 04:18, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry Viva, your old ally will once again come to the rescue and negate any technological advantage the Neu Berliners may have. Although I would ask for more Pacific lands.

Claims

German-Ethiopian War Claims

Claims for each of the Allied nations

As the leader of the coalition, I've taken the liberty of dividing the lands as per the agreements following the war's end. Ethiopia takes most of Neu Berlin, including its Alaskan and Texan colonies. Scandinavia gets most of OTL Quebec and Ontario, as well as the Newfoundland and the OTL Atlantic Provinces of Canada. Nouvelle France gets Puerto Rico and Hispaniola, and basically any Neu Berlin territories that were in the Caribbean Ocean. Scraw shall keep Sakartvelo and expand in the Middle East, as none of us want to completely destroy him, including myself. I get no pleasure from destroying other player nations. :( Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 02:33, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Anti-Neu Berlin Bargain Rule

I think that for PMIII we should expressly forbid anyone from pulling the "Neu Berlin Bargain" again. If the algorithm states that a nation is to be conquered then it is conquered. No more of this "keep half of my empire even though I was defeated" crap. Yank 22:08, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Neu Berlin was not half of my empire, so please. Also, I think it should be up to the winner.

The way I see it, if someone is eliminated from the game, they should be able to start playing as someone else (assuming they don't metagame and what not), and in that case he happened to choose his former colony. Mscoree (talk) 22:17, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Look, if we're talking about rules, I have a bone or two to pick. First off, motive. People have gotten away with giving out +5 for defending territory instead of +10 for life or death because the attacking country claims they have 'no intention of ending that country's soverignty', and when they 'just so happen' to get a 33%, they annex these countries anyway. My proposal is that unless the nation in question was given a +10 on the motive, they cannot be officially annexed, the reason being that they are, at some point in the war, fighting for the soverignty of their country.

What happened to this rule? This was not really enforced at all during this game-

Common Implausibilities

  • Expanding too fast. Massive expansion takes time to achieve, and nations that have expanded vast amounts in short periods of time (like the Mongols, Nazi Germans or Napoleonic French) have had their empires collapse, break apart and be defeated soon after doing so.

Something needs to be done about prejudice. Many personal vendettas are carried out here without any precedent or plausible reason. Simply because you do not like that player or nation is not enough. We need something to protect against prejudice.

More to come...

I agree with Yanks Idea, I mean, Scraw got a very powerfull region, and got control of regions to far for they to be controlled.

Suggestions for PM3 (whether or not the vote succeeds)

I have a few suggestions for PM3, when it comes around. 

  1. We need more mods, and we need more assertive ones. Fed said he was returning for PM3, so make him one again, but also recruit others. Get at least 8 mods at all times. MP and Local have both expressed interest in the position, and both have shown themselves to be fair mods on other games.
  2. Fix the godamn algo! What is this? Your motives need a bigger punch, your location affects absolutely nothing- you guys seem to forget that it wasn't until the last 75 years that is was easy to send troops overseas- and define easy, BTW. It costs America a million dollars a year to send ONE soldier to Afghanistan and keep him there, on average. Gigantic ridiculous Vivempires that own territory in every continent- you guys deserved an ASB tag even before the fall of Germanica.
  3. Stop any 'Caliphial' type enterprises. I mean, something like the HRE is ok, it's good. Loose federations. But the Caliphate? This recent UM-IA joint enterprise thing? WTF? You guys share quite literally no culture in common, and that applied 100 years ago or whenever you two made this damn bond.
  4. Get off this idiotic "Oh it's PM it's awesome it can't die we can do whatever we want, if it's implausible the mods will stop it" attitude. You have three mods. Even on map games with 8 mods, like AvA, we still miss implausible posts. You guys need to calm down with this huge empire-building fanaticism. Viva, there's a reason that Africa never really formed long-lasting empires. Before the Europeans came there were 10,000 different tribes in Africa and none of them got along. Ethiopia, fine. Somalia, k. Eritrea, sure. Beyond that, you'd have so many rebellions it ain't even funny. You'd end up like Austro-Hungary, only worse.
  5. Understand that sometimes- not always, but sometimes- there is a reason that history went as history did. You guys have ignored that for a long time. The Caliphate? Sunnis and Shias, yes- that alone is a massive bloody civil war that should have ripped the Caliphate apart on day 3. Add to the fact that they also had regional disputes? Get out. The Caliphate might have formed, k, but it should have died after the Great Holy War. 

Hell, this whole GAME should have died after the GCBC. Ever since 1600, you've been- to quote Ms- like feuding parents who are only staying together for the kid's sake.

Start the game on the 1st of the New Year, and make you resolution- to make a game that finishes, not wisely, but too well.

  1. Remove Yank. Yank, you're a good person, but you're a piss poor biased mod.
  2. Remove Imp. Imp, I like you too, but you're too damn biased.
  3. Nominate Local. Local is level headed and destroys both sides or not at all.
  4. Nominate MP. MP is also level headed, unbiased, and can spot implausibility at the roots.
  5. Nominate Guns. Guns may not be levelheaded or particularly unbiased, but he can spot implausbility. Guns should be the ASB finding mod.

I may have not played actively in PMII for a while now, but through playing for a bit and observing the game I have come to the conclusion that these are the things that PMIII needs to be a good game: 1) Forgiveness. Too many times have grudges been the main reason for fights both in game and out of game, with grudges lasting for long periods of time. Once we get rid of these grudges the game will be a more pleasent and plausible expeirence. 2)Clarity. There seems to be a lot of ambiguity in the rules, which causes confusion and fustration for everyone. In order to avoid this, the rules need to be clear in order to avoid confusion and tension and make the game run more smoothly. 3) Activity. There needs to be more active mods in order to enforce the rules effectively. It seems that a lack of activity means that users can get away with stuff they wouldn't normally get away with, sort of like a leniant subsitute teacher. The problem with leniancy is that once a door is creeked, most demand it to be fully open, resulting in chaos and confusion. 4) Plausibility. Another problem are people getting away with implausible super conglomerates rapidly expanding and staying stable for a long period of time, which causes much tension between players. Once we remove this we can have a more realistic and fair game. In closing, PMIII needs forgiveness between players, clarity in the rules, Active moderators, and plausible game play in order to be a fun and fair game for everyone. This is UglyTurtle, Signing off. 19:36, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, empires in Africa lasted for a long time, what held them back was the lack of technology and famine. If anything, the ethnic hatred is a recent occurence, and African empires lasted for many centuries at a time. The Ashanti Empire (1670-1896) were made up of several tribes, and none of them destroyed the empire, the British did. Same thing with the Ethiopian Empire (1137-1974), also made of hundreds of tribes and ethnic groups, yet they banded together, built an empire and staved off an Arab, Ottoman, Egyptian, British, and Italian invasion. all in the same century mind you. The Mali Empire (1260-1600) was made up of hundreds of tribes as well, and they didn't hate each other. They became one of the wealthiest nations on the planet, and what brought them down was the lack of a legit heir, leading to a civil war. What sealed their fate was gunpowder and a Moroccan invasion. The Hutus and Tutsis had no problem with one another until a bishop from Belgium arrived and stated to peach that one was greater than the other. The Igbo had no proble with the Yoruba-led Nigerian government. It was the fact that the oil from their lands was going to enrich the Yoruba instead of helping all Nigerians. In an effort to better their own lots in life using the oil that was from their lands, they tried to break away. So your statement that the African empires will break apart as a result of their tribes is a gross overstatement. African empires have always been made up of different ethnic groups, but unlike European empires, the African ones never oppressed one or the other, and rarely blamed the other for their problems, not until the 20th century when they need scapegoats to justify power grabs and government changes. So Africa has 10,000 different tribes, but no they don't all hate each other. That's recent. What destroyed them was the combination of colonialism, invasion, and slavery.

And your little jab with "Vivempires" is quite honestly retarded, like I'm the only player who had territory on every continent, or the only empire is history for that matter. First there was Collie, then Kogasa, then AP, the Scan, then Scraw, then Von, then Sine, and finally me. Grow up and stop using my actions to justify your complaints. If anything, your actions should justify mine. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 19:54, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Bullshit. None of us controlled all that land at the same time. It was a lose-gain thing. None of us had land in Australia. Collie has had Brazil, and normal sized colonies in Africa, and puny outposts in India. Kogasa has controlled Japan and part of North America. However, I will give you points for him being in Africa and South America. He has no business there. AP is and was the same as you; it was only through the power of everyone that we ended that. Scan has no land in Africa, a normal sized territory in South America, and no land in Asia proper. Von stayed along the Indian Ocean; his only implausibility was New Oman. Sine was also ASB, but he did not have land east of Somalia. He was felled through war and mod events.And we didn't have massive behemoths as you do now. Nunavut is fucking massive, as is your Australia Dominion, which, for the record, is mostly desert.

Scan rules Egypt by proxy, and has territories all across Malaysia and Indonesia, unless your blind that is. Nunavut is massive because few people live there (one million spread around) like in OTL, which is also massive, and before 1990, it was one territory in Canada. And Scan had territories in African until I did a rather pointless territory swap with him for Tasmania. AP wasn't brought down by everyone, you and a few other opprotunists struck after he left the game, and ripped his empire apart for yourselves. At your height, we all properly referred to you as ruling half the planet. You can't dispute the statements of ten other players.

No, AP left because we invaded. He was planning to leave, which we didn't know, and he just decided to do it then and there. I did control half the globe. Even Britain did not ever do that. The Scanosphere and the Impire have always been the largest nations. Who are these nine other players? Do you have nine alter egos?

I was not ASB, in fact i would say you conquering most of europe was far more ASB than me having a few bunch of colonies, having as vassal Carthage and and owning france, Most of territories were mostly peacefully obtained and or vassalized, and i never tried to expand my influence beyond certain territories. However You conquered territories that were much different in cultural aspects, and AP conquered a territory that was farther from him than me arguing that a travel from panama to peru was implausible.

But you tried to put all of that together. Really, if you hadn't coast-to-coasted Africa, you would've been fine. The problem here is not what you did, it's how you handled it. Anyways, everytime we have this conversation you just pull the same bullshit out of your ass so let's just all agree that you have been ASB since the Caliphate.

There we go. This proves that you can't read or comprehend basic facts. Anyone with a second grade education would know its not BS (what makes it that anyway?), and simply accept it as fact, or better yet, do the research on their own first, and then then to say something about it. But you don't. You whine, complain, and insult, and pull ^^^this^^^ BS out in every conversation we have. You coast-to-coasted the planet, had territories on every continent, complained when the mods used the very same argument against against you as to why you couldn't control Scandinavia, and then complained we we did the same things to you (arguement, excuses, and all) that you did to us. We honestly can't take anything you say at face value, because when you say it, later down the line, you turn around and whine when we use your logic against you. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 20:07, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Wrong, wrong, and wrong. I did not coast to coast the planet. I did even control all of Germany. At the height of my power, I was just North Germany, Scandinavia, Neu Berlin around the Great Lakes, Mysore, the Phillippines, and Aquitaine. Also, that statement about me and mods controlling Scandinavia is incoherent; I'm not sure what you're trrying to stay through that.
            Great Seal of the United States (obverse)    SCRAWLAND INVICTUS || REX IMPERATOR   20:15, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
And Korea, and parts of Africa. And the mod statement was not incoherent, it was the fact that you used the dumbest exuses (like how the Scandinavians were Germanic, and for that reason they shouldn't have to leave Germanica) to justify you attempts to stop the mods from dividing your empire. You used the same excuse to jutify your invasion of Britain. Flag of the Hurian Federation Vivaporius: "I don't need a slogan" 20:54, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

I feel that if i hadn't been such a doormat for the latter part of the game, things might have turned out differently.--Collie Kaltenbrunner ("I just don't know what went wrong") 20:02, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

I would be willing to mod in PM3 if you guys want. I didn't want to in PM2 given I didn't fully understand the game's many ATL workings. Secondly, I think that part or all of the causi belli/objective section should be copy and pasted from NotLAH (and the games that have since adapted it). It basically ensures that people cannot have wars for no reason, must have a clear reason, and a clear goal to achieve that isn't implausible. Feel free to work that in as you guys see fit. Mscoree (talk) 20:28, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Seeming as I'm planning to be part of PMIII and have been watching the game progress (disappoint about Prussia and Protectorateness fading into the background ಠ_ಠ), I'd like to contribute to discussion.

Concerning mods, I think that we should limit mod powers to certain areas where they are best suited as so that mods who are slightly biased but good at spotting implausibility as someone above said only can deal with issues concerning implausibility. And only mods who are superbly unbiased and also have good historical understanding can create official mod events, etc. these ideas might be revising but they're just a starting point.

Concerning the algorithm, it needs to be reworked, and things that are logical for stacking should stack while things that aren't logical shouldn't and btw population and closeness to war should be more important because by and large the bigger guy wins and the guy who doesn't have to send people halfway across the world wins. Further cultural integration should be taken into account when conquering, this means that if you suddenly conquer a load of land then you are going to have issues waging further wars or managing your empire in general. Cultural differences can kill or immobilise empires.

I also think economics need to be brought up a little in importance and needs to be made so that the only thing people do is build up military every turn. Technology, society/culture/politics, economy, military should hold roughly equal importance, military should not be the be-all and end-all.

Just some ideas. KunarianTALK 20:42, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Would you guys be opposed to factoring number of troops in the war? Usually that's an important aspect of real world strategy. It doesn't work as easily in this case since the PM series has always used a single algorithm per war, as opposed to a per battle system where the number of soldiers is usually clearer. Mscoree (talk) 20:51, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

But we don't have any idea of how to do this.I, for example, don't have any idea of how many troops it would be plausible for Portugal to have in the 1500's.There is no way for me to find out.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:59, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

OK, I have to say this. Ms, I don't think you should mod on this. When you modded NotLAH, it was... bad. Very bad. And that was your own game. I don't want to cause offense, but the number of arguments you had with the other mods/players... I don't think PM needs that. But anyway. Just my opinion. Treat it how you want.

Compared to PM2, I'd say I had very few arguments relating to modding. Mscoree (talk) 21:09, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Very few, yes, but very few in 120 turns, give or take, not 600, again, give or take. And, not that few, tbh Mafia CBA doing his signature. Don't judge Him. This Sig is inspired by Guns. 21:13, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Do a system, like before 1500 turns are in 5 years, before 1850 turns are 2 years, and after 1850 turns are 1 year. CourageousLife (talk) 00:22, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

I think we should have a vote then in a separate section, on all existing and possible applicants, to see if they can mod in PM3. Mscoree (talk) 00:26, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

Imma rant

Scraw: I helped to expand ur nation when it was fragile. I stopped ur expansion because your nation had expanded to the Pacific and more. Just because I am playing my part in the second world war you go all donkey skits.

Cour: I have never made a mod event against you. My expansion was based on economic interests and I would have set off quite a few mod posts in my own direction.

Collie: In the previous decade Ethiopia already had had mod events for it. And all the recent anti Ethiopia mod posts was me, not someone else. I have never once used a mod event to my favour. If you quote Russia then I'll let everyone know that I was only invaded the nation because I wanted to spread my ideology and unite all those who were against each other. Like India in otl.

Kun: Most mods have voted for me.

And I would like everyone to know these votes should be held in the new year as a lot of people are on holiday. These votings won't allow them to contribute. Call me bitter but it feels like a backstab. 1 Imp (Say Hi?!) 15:53, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

I would just like make note of the fact that Guns' only opposition is the Ms gang (and Kun, who just goes nay when there are enough nays). This is clearly because of personal conflict with Guns, and not because of legitimate reasons. I would again like to point out that Guns is only nominated for the position of ASB filter.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, Ms. Ms' only opposition is Local (legitimate reason), Scan (legitimate reason), and Imp (no reason). Imp, let's not bring personal bias into this, eh?

Now we move on to Local. His objectors are, once more, mostly the Ms gang. This is because the little spat that Local and Ms had on chat yesterday. Yank was also present then; I assume he has the same reasons. And then we have Kun with his previously stated reasoning and Scan with his reasoning.

As for Imp, you cannot simply stop someone's expansion once they have reached a goal you want them to achieve. Perhaps I had further goals. That was an unecessary and, imo, an illegal intervention. Furthermore, stop calling every single war the Second World War. We have already had three, we do not need more. A world war is not 6v1 or 5v1. It's more like 1000vs999. On the topic of Cour, you invaded him for no goddamn reason. And that shit about Russia is bullshit. Russia was already socialist.
