Any Anons from old 8/gsg/ around? I figured that with CKIII released playable, HOI IV having its first Genocide option and Emperor of the Fading Suns being released on GOG, we can revive this threads. So what are you currently >conqueran, annexan, vassalizan or colonizan? Did you figure out the perfect Borders for your country yet? How is your mod project coming along (i know you have an autistic idea that no mod fulfills)? And what about the eternal question: Is it better to have a big landmass country or having all the juicy world provinces in an dispersed empire only connected via Sea lanes? I will probably start with a new campaign of Darkest Hour soon. I usually get in the mood for this once or twice a year. Planing to use EoD mod for maximum Reichslarp (Mp4 related). Problem is i get pretty autistic for this. I have to make adjustments/changes in the files so that my perfect alternate history scenario is achievable, which is usually a pretty big task. War-games and 4X are also welcome here.

>>285983 Before it came out i played both hoi3 did 50ish hours but then got back to cuckking and Victoria 2 but never enjoyed it as much didn't care as much about colonizing >>286245 But doing the baiting I run out of mana too since the cost and time of justifying spikes up massively... or I missed the part where they then refund my political power? Oh I know about the encirclement, infact I've been using it against them when I could, most of my wiggling in the front line is getting 3-4 division of 20width against one of theirs on a 80 width region.... still I kill 1m of my enemy and get 100k death myself and still have no MP >>286311 >AI doesn't attack Well fuck, whats the point of going to war if they don't attack then? any mod that fix this shitty staring contest? >console command peace conference Do I just annexall or there is a command that gives me more VP so I can pick whatever region I need? tried occupationpaint but it doesnt actually give me the land, only that i can manage it for some other country >navy and air force Yeah I guess I will pick kiwiland or another island nation and learn the tropes of navy in another game saw in an old gsg thread that you should do 5 screen for every heavy you have, 10 subs for any heavy and dd same as sub...but it might be out of date info since war prior MtG as said in the post above I've been spamming sub and convoy raiding or patrolling where critical >field hospitals and disband Yeah all my units had hospitals to save up some mp on battle ticks, I might reduce my regiment for Military policing the conquered regions and hope it works But fuck, Greece starts with the service by requirement law and is already at 125k manpower. So don't have much I can scrap from the cores >what's your division template, do you follow the meta No idea what's the meta(installed the game 6 days ago) I basically have 4 division, one footsoldiers to carry the fight, one light tank to rush encirclement,one medium tanks to fight their tanks and one for garrison.... template setup is pic related(have logistic instead of maintenance cause im currently trying again as iran so to be away from the rapeing) >what country you would like to play? any minor or secondary major cause i like going from nothing to superpower..tried portugal but is suicide, greece ive posted the result, any scandinavian is just waiting to either get gobble up by ivan or heinz, in asia ive tried mongolia and some southeast i dont rememeber*sumatra maybe?**, if i can learn to play i want to try canada/mexico/hungary/australia >monroe doctrine well shit, so south america will never be playable unless burgers get a civil war or are too busy to care. i would love to pick hue or white argentina to make a latin faction
>>286390 forgot to add, the medium tank template has tank specialization with artillery or tank buster ready to go if i fight countries like russia or germany
>>286390 >Well fuck, whats the point of going to war if they don't attack then? any mod that fix this shitty staring contest? I think this is intended. There were always phases in which the front was rather quiet. You shouldn't attack when you dont have the strength. Use this time to resupply and plan the next offensive. >Do I just annexall or there is a command that gives me more VP so I can pick whatever region I need? tried occupationpaint but it doesnt actually give me the land, only that i can manage it for some other country No you use "tdebug" to get the id of the state and then use "setowner [country tag] [state id]" to change the stateowner. Use "add_core <state_id>" if you want it to be a core. All commands are in the official wiki >But fuck, Greece starts with the service by requirement law and is already at 125k manpower. So don't have much I can scrap from the cores Its Greece, its not a big power. >No idea what's the meta(installed the game 6 days ago) I basically have 4 division, one footsoldiers to carry the fight, one light tank to rush encirclement,one medium tanks to fight their tanks and one for garrison.... template setup is pic related(have logistic instead of maintenance cause im currently trying again as iran so to be away from the rapeing) I believe current Meta is that big division (combat with 40) are better. Your Divisions are pretty juicy. Makes me wonder if Greece can properly supply them? Are you running out of Equipment during the battles? >i like going from nothing to superpower Portugal, Scandinaivia and greece are not even secondary powers and have the big one next door. Maybe try Belgium (I think there is a decision in which you can get all of Congos Manpower) Netherlands (good potential) Italy, Spain, Australia Canada (Pretty safe location). Its pretty hard to go without the 3 big alliances. So better choose one who can help you out as you learn the game. >Navy Yeah it has changed. But you only really need a navy if you are a big power. > i would love to pick hue or white argentina to make a latin faction Its possible of course. But you have to prepare to face America as they will intervene in every war. Better get good allies who can help you and build up.
>>286417 >it was intended Yeah but it's a stand still till I either find a hole to wiggle or always the enemy push forward and grab a fuckload of land.... my faction never actually do jack. It stays on the border and mostly defend >console command Well thats good, will then fix some of the orrendous peace deal I've got screw with >Greece is not a big power Yeah but mid conscription law and only 125k feels like bullshit MP, fuck I think Ireland has more since starts with volunteers only >meta and supplies Well fuck, I barely can work out with 20 I imagine that if I try the meta I will end up with only 12 division of beaten up soldiers. Actually not that many shortage, going neutral, dem or gommie got me well set up that if I place 6 parallel order for a division it gets done immediately but then the MP lackin slows me to never get those units. If I go 1488 instead the war always catch me in some way and I end up with a lack of tanks and have to wait for the reinforce or old riflestoo slow on updating >countries Belgium and Netherlands really? Fuck I wanted to avoid them especially cause is a german damocle sword to not go 1488.... and even then only if I get in his faction or I still get swallowed up might give it a try and hope for the best. Spain with the revolution starting immediately i don't know how to set it up properly but will figure it out, Canada is basically a slave to UK first and if I get the national focus to get out of the commonwealth I become a slave for US or not grabbing shit I see there is a focus for an alliance with Mexico and trying to squash burgersland... is it actually possible or just a meme focus? Will try aussie and learn navy to fuck some nips up >Latin power Yeah I remember in hoi3 I just grow tall and waited for burger to get in ww2 but then again, somehow still manage to land some shit and annoy us. will see if with the spies I can cause some civil war effectively removing the guarantees therefor giving me some room to expand or at the very least make puppets
>>131376 Just posting this for some background music for while playing
What's the most cursed country you could possibly make up in grand strategy? >>285980 Paradrop on the VPs and get a stronger country to protect you by joining their faction and building forts on your most defensible tile while the AI grinds itself into your guns

>>286739 Greater Israel ?
>>286390 >i would love to pick hue or white argentina to make a latin faction I remember in HoI2 there was a scenario wich was basically a south american theater of ww2, with brazil joining the allies and argentina the axis. >>286739 >What's the most cursed country you could possibly make up in grand strategy? Any form of lotharingia.

>>258093 Just released a new update, it's mostly focused on bugfixing and quality of life stuff, had to do it before attempting any new overhauls. https://github.com/Benisman1488/Anon-s-Historical-Bloat-Mod/
Anyone has the old 8ch mega archive with the mods and games?
>Stellaris v3.0.1 "Dick" (c04b) Wait, is this legal for Parajew to name an update like that in CY+X?
>>290521 It's fitting, considering that it's the patch that gimped large empires, delivered with the DLC that gave content for large empires.
>>290647 what happened i heard it involved something with populations
>>290652 Population growth now gets gimped if the population of your entire empire gets too large. So building tall is the only valid strategy now, because otherwise you have a hundred planets with two people on them. Or, I suppose, feeding vassals and then gobbling them up when they're nice and plump. It really leads to the whole thing feeling extremely artificial, not like a living world, because somehow your capital being a HongKong style hellhole makes the one family of settlers on a frontier world not want to breed.
>>290705 That's retarded.
>>290760 No, this is the cuckchan gsg archive.
>>290705 That sounds stupid as hell
>>290705 Does Paradox even play test their games anymore? Every game launch, and every expansion they've released in the passed few years, has been broken. I understand a few bugs in games, things are going to slip through, especially for big games like this, but this is ridiculous. This isn't unit graphics having a seizure or text displaying wrong, this is core mechanics not working.
>>290497 Well I found the links, looks like they were removed which sucks, the archive had mods that are no longer available anywhere, like putinmod,
>>290444 >404'd Damn
>>295063 Use gitgud instead.

I heard this was pretty bad, just like everything else Paradox releases.
>>296967 They had to release a full page of hotfixes a day after which including something seems to be the actual AI for the shit they add in the new DLC.
>>296967 Lets see >you can develop a province for 0 cost >you can have a ruler with thousands of Monarchpoints >you can have up to 5 manufactures in a province >you can have 0 (unlimited) government capacity >you can instant convert >you can have government reform level in the thousands in one month Granted theese are exploits but maybe they shouldn't have sacked their QA department

Finally finished a full vanilla game of Stellaris with a friend. Looking into doing a modded run before we give it a rest a while. Any essential or strongly recommended mods out that anyone can suggest? >>297776 God damn.
>>300610 Gigastructural Engineering or Forgotten Queens. Gigastructural for building silly huge mega structures looking at your Alderson Disk and Forgotten Queens for a hive mind run.
>>300621 I always build/repair those ringworld sections but never actually use it. Feel like it's just going to cluster the outliner with bazillion of new "planets" and it'd be annoying to navigate it. Why didn't they have an option to merge all the sections into a single entity after you completed them.
>>301614 well apparently its nerfed to shit so it doesn't even matter anymore
>>296967 It was so bad that the Ming died on the first day, for going over government capacity breaks AI nations because they release vassals to lower it. Nothing in Oceania makes any historical sense, with Abbos able to evolve to human status and invent gunpowder and cannons before Europe. Zoroastrians were turned into Coptic ripoffs and left blatantly unfinished. New formable nations have no national ideas. Concentrating development is extremely overpowered. There are too few monuments, and they are completely overpowered. The game apparently crashed before 1520 almost assuredly. This is what they get for firing their QA team.
>>302628 > The game apparently crashed before 1520 reached 1550 before the crash. cant do anything after i hit that date. Nothing you can do to stop the crash
