It's based on the Secret Kingdom of (Upper) Mustang in Nepal.

code:

The Free State of $REGION$
The Grand State of $REGION$

The Landgrave of $REGION$
The Nation of $REGION$
Holy $REGION$
The $REGION$ Dominion
The People's State of $REGION$
The High Kingdom of $REGION$
The Lesser Duchy of $REGION$
So the nation owning Greenland is "The Secret Kingdom of" (I think the converter excluded the region part) and since Denmark had cores on it, that becomes "Secret Denmark".

It's probably a leftover from Secret Bears of Jan Mayen.

It works well enough. You should take some time to customize it for yourself though so that it ends up generally making more sense and looking nicer. The converter tends to do some weird things swith personal unions, tech groups and national ideas in my experience. Also you should go over the flags, as it just assigns the Christian coat of arms for the state in EUIV which leads to some rather ill-fitting and unsatisfying flags for states that aren't Christian. I just find some replacements from vanilla EU4 and Europa Gooniversalis and stuff like that personally. I also do stuff like split up cultures so that it fits EU4 better and I pretty up borders, because I am a huge sperg.

e: I also think it has problems assigning the proper tag for dynastic title countries. Because it wants to create a dynamic name for those countries and just creatse new Z## tags instead. Leads to no Arab Muslim north African countries having the Berber ideas as they are tied to tags, for an example.

Have we seen what the generic HoI IV portraits look like yet? It's crazy impressive how many actual painted ones we've seen, even for edge cases like generals for smallish countries or a leader for alternate communist Norway.

Oh wow, the fact that historical flavor events can play out differently is so cool-- it's always been kind of funny to me when some flavor event fires in Victoria 2 or Europa Universalis IV that mysteriously plays out exactly like it did in the real world every single time. I wonder if it's just a coinflip, or if the American player's actions actually affect Earhart's chances of success?

I like how Venstre is neutral and Høyre doesn't exist

e: What's the situation in the US for an example? Do you have the Democrats as democratic/liberal (whatever it was called), and then the Republicans as neutrals?

e2: Would a party with a non-democratic/liberal ideology winning an election in a democracy change stuff beyond the leader and maybe some modifiers, relations and AI priorities? Would they still be counted as a democracy for the mechanic that disallows democracies from declaring war on each other?

I'm guessing the Earhart thing is just a fluff event if you play with the Historical national focus path off (it's a setting, but I don't know if it's binary or has an option for degree of randomness).

It would be cool to see if you got more alt history headlines as countries go progressively off the historical rails.

New Stellaris dev diary on characters.




and funnily enough, sort of connected to HoI4 portrait chat:

quote:

Now, as you remember from last week’s diary, there are about a hundred different alien race portraits in the game. Thus, we initially felt that lesser leaders should not have actual portraits, because we could not possibly produce enough of them to provide the requisite variety. But then, the artists started to experiment with different backgrounds and clothes, which thankfully proved sufficient to allow all leaders to show a portrait.

I wonder if they're using a sort of modular system like that in HoI too. I hope they'll be doing a bunch of portrait DLC packs for both these games though, usually graphical mods aren't something modders shine on, especially for rendered portraits like this.

I like the character system, it sounds fairly similar to how Endless Space/Legend allowed your heroes to be either be military leaders or governors (probably done in some 4x's before then but those were the first that came to mind).

I see there's a Slavery checkbox, I wonder if that's just all encompassing or if you have the ability to specify 'us vs them' at all.

Getting unreasonably excited for this game now and that's real bad considering how far off it probably still is.

They're missing a lot of the nuance of social stratification, clearly. Or does slavery cover all forms of second-class citizenship?

That was my first thought. Not sure what that looks like on a strategic level, though. There's a day every year where half your leaders just die?
