No shit, the people support whatever the TV tells them to. That's why "democracy" must be destroyed, because "the people" will always support at least one half of the power structure while it shits on them.

And as for "far-right" - current ultraliberal western society is far to the right of both the Nazis and 20th century America.
A modern boomercon sent back to 1970 seeing Nixon meeting with strong trade unions and making peace with an enemy nation, would probably end up thinking he was in a communist state.
Only thing is there's a veneer of trannyism over the whole thing.

Not him, but there's definitely a lot of misundertanding regarding Ameican ideology pre-21st century (and I guess you could argue that there's still a lot of misunderstanding today). For instance, a lot of people like to conflate the Deep South with fascism, based mainly off of the South's long history of racism/slavery etc. In fact, it's probably southerners who despise government centralization the most. Hell, even the Civil War was an attempt to protect state rights (albeit state rights to decide local slavery laws), and personal freedom, against an increasingly-powerful federal government. By today's standards, slavery certainly seems quite backwards and anti-liberty, but back then owning a slave was considered a part of your right to property, and while the right to property isn't strictly included in the bill of rights, it was an important part of the declaration of independence and American ideology as a whole. The problem a lot of HoI4 modders make (and to an extent any alt-hist modders of any game) is that they tend to see a lot of correlation between the beliefs of 2 separate groups and try to conflate them. Ideology as a whole is much more complex than just left vs. right, and even members of the same group or party will often have disagreements. So right off the bat, anyone who latches onto 1 or 2 policies and attempts to ascribe an ideology to someone will more than likely be wrong. Now, I personally haven't done any research on socialist influence in the US so I can't say for certain, but I believe it's more likely than not that the KR modders have been fabricating much more syndicalist support than reasonably would have existed back then in these regions. Of course, for the sake of gameplay and alternate-history it's understandable that some gaps in realism are made.

Is your nation trouble by war exhaustion or inflation? No biggie, just press the mana button few times and everything goes away.
Is your empire unstable after huge conquest? No, issue just spend mana to integrate it.
Is your capital shit? No worries, just with a few mana clicks you can turn Stockholm more developed than Paris.
Do you want a great general? Use mana buy new generals.

There is abstraction and then there is going too far.

You also have rebellions in Vic 2 but unless you are a major they arent a problem and they are also not fun since you either spend your ENTIRE army to crush them or you let them run its course and dont lose 10% of your population.

Ok /vst/, wanted to talk about RTS, 4x, etc. strategy games you feel noone really talks about that much. Also to discuss games you only remember details of but cant remember the actual name, so other anons try and see if they know what the game is.

Gonna start, Paraworld is a really nice fantasy-ish AoE style game with dinosaurs and had a really innovative gameplay feature, where units took a spot in a leveling up scheme, and you had to choose what units are level 1,2,3,4, and 5, with hero units actually unlocking skills the higher level they are, but with level 5 having a single spot available.

As for games you dont remember, i have a really hard one ive been trying to find for about 10 years. My dad used to buy pc magazine here in Mexico, and it included a bunch of demos of different games, one in particular caught my eye because of how unique it was. The things i remember is it was kinda caveman style setting, you had male and female workers, you gather wood and stone, isometric perspective, workers died of old age and actually had to fuck to make new workers, there were a bunch of different teardrop shaped symbols representing different liquids like water, oil and poison, male workers could turn into heroes with blue skin, female workers could turn into shamans that danced inside a building to generate a magic lighting bolt resource, the demo had you confined in a island, you had to make a raft and then in a mainland there was a red colored faction and neutral dinosaurs with a t rex roaming around. Not much else i can remember but i've never been able to find this game and its honestly driving me crazy to not know wtf is this game is.

My favorite strategy game is this game called Demise of Nations. I've put more hours into it than any other strategy game. But it's got a very small community so that's why I'm sharing it with you guy's. It's pretty cool because it works on many platforms like Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, Linux, etc. Check it out if you like turn-based strategy war games.

that would be ideal, but if the workers would just calculate how long they needed to walk or drive to their site before they left home, then factories would run at 99% instead of 80%. If additionally, workers would stay an extra hour while waiting for their shift replacement, then factories would always run at 100% if there were enough workers in range to staff them.

I'm enjoying the fuck out of this game. I never really cared about Battletech or mechs in general before but I can't put this one down. I'm really digging everything from the world to the presentation and the gameplay

Not perfect. Has a few issues like the combat taking and age, some missions not being balanced and some mission types like convoy ambush being a complete ballache but overall I'm really into it

I've put 250 hours into it and still never really finished the campaign. I keep restarting but this time I'm really hell bent on doing it. Once that's done I'm installing BEX

Sordland is not like Germany or another country capable of vast conquests. It's more akin to Estonia or Latvia but with Turkey's internal situation. It's also wedged between the alliances of two super powers, which puts another damper on that sort of warring.

It's a better armored infantry unit that can build super towers that can create more infantry units that can build more super towers.
The strat seems to be to build a donjon and an archery range in feudal. Then just rush your opponent, building donjons garrisoned with archers and serjeants to harass your opponent and deny them resources until they either resign or you reach castle age and spam an extra 30-50 serjeants to overwhelm them with first crusade.

Will the remaster be any good? Cutscene animations seem well done, but seem to fit the tone of the game worse than the shitty 90s CGI did.
One thing I'm glad of is that the soundtrack composers are planning to re-do the original soundtrack, rather than change it. Pretty sure if they had, nobody would fucking play it LOL. Part of me hopes they HAVEN'T fixed the shitty AI, who need to walk to a very specific point to deliver gold to the palace, rather than the one that's closest to the mine, or emergency services walking 8 hours up the kingdom road, letting your settlement burn, then telling you they'd do things differently if they were running the city.
Hopefully they put a toggle between old and new graphics/OST, Grim Fandango style. I'm really wary of isometric remasters, especially one as kino as Pharaoh. The art-style might be completely lost. Honestly, if it's a flop, I'll just find some way to get GOG's version to run consistently in borderless windowed mode, as that's the only problem I have with that release.
How much of the original will be left over, do you think? How much code would they have copy-pasted over to the remaster? And, importantly, how many Triskell-fags are lurking here right now?

You guys gonna buy it?
