So you guys remember in the last thread we found that guy who fantasied about Nazi Germany invading the US? He made more posts!

For some context, the three options he's talking about :
1) Status quo ante bellum: The Germans just wanted their pre-WW1 borders but Poland wouldn't give in (Danzig Corridor), so WW2 was unleashed.

2) Continentalist theory: Germany wanted continental hegemony in Europe (autarky, drang nach osten, lebensraum) to rival the USA in the future, a cold war of superpowers.

3) Globalist theory: Germany was after world domination, meaning it had to destroy any opposition from other states




Poor Germany, all they wanted was to be left alone. WW2 is the fault of those Allied fucks

How do you play Viccy 2? I just had a really odd situation where I was playing as Portugal, I was doing amazing on the conquest of Africa and colonising the areas before that stuff takes off. I even kept my infamy in check. I had half of Sokoto in me, half of Ethiopa and all of Transvaal.

Then I built a factory and my economy just plummeted. Beyond recovery. I even destroyed the factory to see if the resources that needed buying up for that were the root of the issue. It wasn't, and my income just wouldn't recover. I put down all of my expenditures down to zero, and boosted all of my taxes and tariffs as high as I could and I was still making negative money. All I could do was sit and watch while I took on more and more loans.

Also, for some odd reason my troop bases were not replenishing, even if I set my NF to be encouraging soldiers.

Most likely it had nothing to do with that one factory, but you were probably sphered by Great Britain or someone else who's big, so now they are taking most of your resources and on top of that your tariffs probably don't work anymore.

Scale can be its own reward. Not a grand strategy, but I've never done everything in Morrowind. Just the idea that there's still frontiers there adds to the experience, though. Yes, that's irrational. But so what? Humans are irrational. It's inescapable. Might as well accept that when designing a game.

I agree with this.

One thing I always love about Vicky 2 is that the verbiage for pops changing occupation is "signed up". As in "27 labourers signed up to be aristocrats today."

I remember once seeing a screenshot of two people signing up to be slaves.

Ask Paradox. They were the ones that put those stupid names in to begin with - they came from the HoD dynamic dominion system. When that converter found a nation it could not transfer a Vicky 2 tag over to, it would take one of the dynamic dominion tags, which are as follows:

code:
The Kingdom of $REGION$
The Confederation of $REGION$
Commonwealth of $REGION$
The Republic of $REGION$
The $REGION$ State
The People's Republic of $REGION$
The Free State of $REGION$
The Grand State of $REGION$
The State of $REGION$
The Principality of $REGION$
The Democratic Republic of $REGION$
The $REGION$ Union
The $REGION$ Kingdom
The Dominion of $REGION$
The Grand Duchy of $REGION$
The $REGION$ Nation
The $REGION$ Federation
The United States of $REGION$
The Democratic Union of $REGION$
The Princedom of $REGION$
The Union of $REGION$
The People's Democratic Republic of $REGION$
The $REGION$ Area
The Glorious Union of $REGION$
Mighty $REGION$
The $REGION$ Free State
The $REGION$ Commonwealth
The $REGION$ Confederacy
The Free People of $REGION$
The $REGION$ Republic
The Holy Union of $REGION$
The People's Union of $REGION$
The Federal States of $REGION$
The $REGION$ Federal State
The $REGION$ Confederation
The $REGION$ Federation
The Pious Union of $REGION$
$REGION$ Land
The Most Serene Republic of $REGION$
The Secret Kingdom of $REGION$
The Commune of $REGION$
The $REGION$ Commune
The Worker's Union 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.

I recently started playing Vicky 2 again (with the 3.04 beta patch), and it really is the best Paradox game ever.

When will you announce Vicky 3's imminent release, Paradox?
