Talk about the mod blah blah blah, last thread got archived today
By the time Ibevar finishes all their reforms Jaddari's conquered half the world.
Imagine if Anbennar devs had access to eu4 source code. Even without it, they have produced more and higher quality content than Parajew ever has. Magic jank fixed, race jank fixed, expedition jank fixed, Escann jank fixed, &c. Imagine what could be. I refuse to give Parakikes any money, but I would buy EU4: Anbennar
>>1052357The difficulty in Anbennar is weird. When I first started playing I thought it was way harder than base EU4. Went back to base EU4 and tried to play Scotland and found myself sitting around not doing much with no opportunities to really declare on England. I think I've realised while Anbennar has more difficult situations, it gives you so many tools to get out of them. Like base EU4 is still just take a billion loans and hire all the mercenaries if you are in trouble, and I hate that shit.
>>1052375Like what? What would they do that they can't already do? They seem to be doing fine without it.
coalitions dont matter if half the countries in them stop existing..
>>1052463I love it when you're big enough to do this and just declare on people as soon as they join the coalition
>>1052375a bunch of script kiddy furries arent going to fix eu4
Best starter nation?
any other slides as kino as "calasandur starseeker takes the throne"?
>>1052550Play something in or around the HRE, then try any elf in Bulwar.
>>1052550Verne for boring but safe vanilla.Eborthil for the maritime colonial gameplay.Lorent for France.Asra expedition for baby's first Dwarovar.Obrtrol for Hyperborean resurgence.
>>1052550Jaddari if you're into conquest.
>>1052357Is there anime flag mod for Anbenar?
>>1052669What kind of anime would be set in Anbennar? Who or what would it focus on?
>>1052697Dragon Dominion should get a MT and events featuring their Dragon god eventually. Judging by the D*scord threads, it'll be a month or two after Haless releases.
>no Bayvic MT>no Mestikardu MT or Triarchy formable>no Overclan MT>no Underkingdom MT>no Jade March formable or Jade Goblins MT>no Common Goblin formable in Escann>no Forest Goblin formable or MTgoblinbros.......

>>1052850i believe in supremacy of monkeykind
Is there ever a point to playing as one of these ?
>>1053052Some (such as Vanbury Guild, Mykx, and Jaherian Exemplars) have fun mission trees
>>1053052for some yes, you get cool mission tress and formables but only for some
>roadmap after haless is not-africa and not-lost world>more tags, more provinces, much more lag>old tags will never get updated to match new content's qualityRIP
>>1053172Old tags are constantly being worked on.
>>1053056I normally ignore the new colony popups but I tried out the VG and they're actually fun. Unique MT, strong ideas, open starting position, cool Dutch East India Company inspired flag. Based/10 would recommend
none of you faggots played this mod during the glory days before the austria patch and the shitty dwarf content
>>1052357Don't forget the buffs from elven military.
>>1053056Oh they have unique MTs, tried one once and it didn't have any so i figured none do.
>>1053241Only the ones anon mentioned have any. Thankfully the ones that do exist are great, but it's only those 3 out of dozens.
The kobold advisor portrait mod I got almost makes me feel bad about conquering their lands and purging them.Almost.
>>1053365I'd feel better desu
>>1053287Who do you have to start as to play as those?
>>1053403Jaherians - own Elizna's capitalMykx - own some province from Viakkoc (used to be their capital, don't know if that was changed)Vanbury Guild - own Telgeir
>>1053190are you the same anon complaining about the abundance of dev cost modifiers all the time by any chance
>>1053076hes a 6/6/6 ruler you get a little bit after the rianvisa starts
What are some gobbo nations worth playing? Are they jews? Do they have unique models?
Is there a way to keep Elven Forebears as Ibevar? I want to play as "evil" elves but I already did full Aelnar campaign
>>1053481>What are some gobbo nations worth playing?Railskuker> Are they jews?Those would be the Dwarves Though I personally believe almost all fantasy races have jewish traits> Do they have unique models?Afaik no nations have unique models
>>1053482lose to the rebelsyou won't have a mission tree but it works
>>1053365You installed a furry submod. What is wrong with you? The mod has good kobold portraits as it is.
>>1053537>You installed a furry submod.They're lizards.And I got the mod before they added proper kobold portraits but I guess I forgot about it.
How do i stop being shit? I keep having to use cheats to make it through the rianvisa and to make a funxtional aelnar
>>1053615Just appease one or two guys and enrage the rest. Avoid fights with normal rebels and only fight the special ones.
>>1053617What are the special rebels? Nobels?
Which dwarf nation is the galacy brain one om par woth ES dwemer for int but withiut the dream bullshit
>>1053628Are you ok anon?
>>1053628Sapphire dwarfs. MT isn't fully complete yet.
>>1052357When will they update it for 1.33?
>>1053734Already is in the bitbucket releases.
>>1053734About a month ago.
>>1053755>>1053757I mean on steam. It still says 1.32.
>>1053758Haless update was delayed to end of May.
>>1053758Stop playing the Steam version, you dirty gopnik. Real patriots have been playing bitbucket for months.
>>1053763Not him but I like abusing estates so much that I dropped back to 1.32
>>1052357VENAIL WILL RULE THE WAVES AND THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>1053767This but with Mykx
>>1053763How can i download it from bitbucket, my cheeki breeki?
Do anbennar devs lurk here?
>>1053814Literally anyone can work on this mod, pretty sure people have gone there from here.
>>1053497That's lame. Are there any other based elves that have a MT?
>>1052840>that pic is actually an event
What's the Splendor priority in the Age of Unraveling?
>>1053814I think lead devs don't, but a lot of contributors come on here, and some even post. There was even one point where people on the Discord discussed an Anbennar thread.
>>1053930I'm Emperor Ibevar with Religious, if that helps
>>1053755Does the bitbucket release have any new content made in the last two months? Last I heard 1.33 broke a bunch of systems and they were delaying asia, has that changed since then? Or should I just wait for the official Haless release?
>>1053956I think all broken features have been fixed, and there's been a lot of content added, though not sure how much of it will actuslly interest you.
How the fuck are you supposed to play this nation when everyone can declare on your colonies? I've clearly fucked this up somehow.
>>1053995>>1053998It's been a while since I played EU4 and Anbennar but I think you can enforce peace to get involved in a colonial conflict. Also I remember Venail having a whole thing where you migrate away from your little island, so do that.
>>1053995You want to rush to colonize as fast as possible. You should have at least 1 colonial nation by 1480-1490, and all should be self-governing. 1520 is when you want to start becoming Aelnar.Also, use enforce peace when you can. Adventurers get 20k stacks, and only you can build up that much.
>>1054012>>1054013Right, it's enforce peace that you use. Thanks, that's all I needed to know. I think I've botched this run up a bit, but I'll stick with it. I'll probably outpace the adventurers eventually.
>>1053502They're based about it though. >hey, let's put like um all our fucking gold on a pile in a cave lol. like, a lot of gold, like a year of 1700s castanor income. >yooooo brooo how did you read my miiind brooostill hoping that gold gobbos get a cool focus tree as good as sunrise empire or smth. fuck humans, literally.
>>1054057It's 1541 and I'm still Venail. How do you do it quicker?
>>1053814Most threads about mods, be they for Eu4 or Hoi4 have mod devs lurking or even baiting for responses.Source: Horsefucker mod dev
I only played anbennar few times. First time it was with a nation in the south of hre with three pearls for a flag, i like to call it the naval austria.Second it was southern dwarves, i expanded quickly with colonial ideas, genocided goblins an orcs, then got stuck as i was too weak to attack the sun or forest elves.
>>1054059>Estate privileges (Burghers and Adventurers especially)>Spam colonies. You'll have 5 colonists, so get colonizing. Run 6-7 colonies at once, even if it gets you more debt.>Rush colonial nations. They can colonize more provinces for youBasically, be as fast and aggressive as possible.
>>1053948it's all colonial/naval shit and the resistence to reformation edict doesn't actually work, don't bother
>>1054078I thought I was. Should I focus on just 5 in one region, move on to next region or focus on that bloodgroves region? Also what do you do about invasions? Because big nations keep declaring on me and all I can really do is just give them loads of money and some colonies.
>>1053908Already did nazi Elsa queen campaign
>>1054111Fortunately it was my first campaign in this mod. I thought I just do some chill Portugal-style campaign and was quite shocked, but I pulled it off and conquered Aelantir by 1720
>>1054059There's a lot optimizing you can do with a venail start.My first run was slow and got fucked by the adventurers that spawn in 1500.On my second run I was big and fast enough by 1500 to prevent a couple from spawning outright and vassalize most of the rest.
Bitbucket updates picking up steam, they might make the end of may afterall.
Is there anyway to play Centaurs without the whole conquer the world or die mechanic? Like can I convert to Jadd or something, I don't need a MT I should want to restore the Centaur lands of escann and the deep woods on my own little campaign
>>1054638don't be a pussy, anon
eastern ogres are so kino
who are the dark elves in this
>>1054668Define dark elves.If you want elves but slightly different (Mutatuions, etc) then there are the elven nations in the New World.Now if you want Evil Elves, we have Lithiel
>>1054684what her deal i thought calasandur and star elves were evil in general
>>1054684how do you get Lithiel?
>>1054693Havent played her so my info may be incorrect, but gulags and possibly living elf batteries.>>1054696¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Think it's one of the splinter factions from Aelnar, but I'm not sure.
>>1054696Wait until she rebels then switch to her.>>1054693She turns new world natives into mana batteries.
>>1054697>>1054698why are elves like this?
>>1054648I just want Centaur gf horse pussy but without the pressure of wars, also I really don't like what feels like a time limit or anything
>>1054700They've been wandering the sea for 1000 years and the saved two different regions on two different occasions. Being worshipped by humans kinda fucks you up in the head.
>>1052357If I play the Ynnic dragon worshippers can I get a dragon?
>>1054868The dragonlet is a moody teenager who sloths around ontop of his gold pile all day so being a dragon simplet gets you nothing.Just worship Malliath for the true chromatic experience.
>>1054872That’s fucking lame the Ynns seem cool what’s malliath?
>>1054868No one over there has content beyond ideas except for Malacnar, the western fey and a couple of adventurers. They just recently added in a bunch of religions as well, like weird shit the frost sleepers worship. But like no one can use those religions, so why even bother.
>>1054873MALACNAR is very cool, they're water worshipping unga bungas but the Sparta aesthetic is fun.Malliath is the (was) the first and greatest dragon, if you zoom out on the map you can spot his two skulls on the Dragon coast and Serpent's head. Stash enough Kobold gold in the hoard and you might get some attention.
>>10548832 skulls you say?
>>1054879That sucks I played Eordand and conquered the Ynns and read they were like knights them with a cool dragon would be kick ass and I’m glad they’re adding more degenerated elf stuff always wanted to play as one>>1054883>SpartaOh I thought I read they were like medieval knights or something >Kobold How much content do they have is that new? But kinda wanted to play as elves with dragons would be a cool twist
>>1054891>Oh I thought I read they were like medieval knights or somethingYeah Malacnar is kind of schizophrenic in design. They rotate between medieval knights, Aztecs, Spartans and Eastern Europeans. Basically what's important isLuv me fightingLuv me river'ate peace'ate weaknessSimple asIf you want a fun no content playthrough over there, play as Inek. All the money Malacnar and the river tribes send over the edge of the waterfall to heaven lands on Inek.
By Adean, I love Castanor so much. I wish EUIV wasn't such a bother with cultures and the economy. The reliance on events and conversion really puts a damper on the one of a kind experience.The First and Final Empire, One Faith, One Culture, One Humanity, WC
which nation is the most evil and sadistic
>>1054911Black Demense, Venali -> Star Empire, Eastern Ogres once they're complete.
>>1054917So keen for the Oni to be complete. Everything before their formable was easy as fuck and I love easy nations. Especially mosntrous nations, since those are usually pretty hard. You get a dedicated "fuck off for a bit longer" button you use on the Command every few years and can just steamroll everything to your east.Then you form a new nation, but everything in that 2nd tree was unlocalised last I tried.Dunno if they'll be my first though when they do the big update. Those airship merchants sound fun.Or maybe gold kobolds.
Calasandur's MT post-Rianvisa implies he started the entire crisis, but why would he kill the royal family?
>>1055044He's an e*f
>Greatest world power Lorent declares war on me>Can't do shit>War sends me bankrupt>Rianvisa pops just afterNup. Hate the campaign. I feel like maybe playing a more traditional slower campaign with them maybe. Where I just invade cunts on the mainland as well as colonising and just migrate over much later. At least maybe then I can weaken the other colonial powers. I dunno. I've just hated every attempt of Venail so far.
>>1055064how do you lose to lorent? just build some heavy ships and they can't get to you
>>1055065Lorent had 10 heavy ships and 62k troops. I couldn't even approach that.
>>1054710what, don't you like endless merciless slaughter?it's fun!
>>1054697>elf batteries>Implying that those ugly savage monsters are elves
>>1055064The only reason for Lorent to attack you is the island of VenailIn the early game you can just block Lorent with your fleet and Calasandur who's the best admiral in the game. You could also try to ally Lorent if they are willing.When you form Aelnar you should already sell that shitty island to Lorent or whorever's going to buy it, it's not worth keeping it at all and buffs the sell provides boosts you in a very good way.
>>1054868The Ynn dragon worshippers are very WIP. Once it's finished, the dragon should be an active part of their nation. He's still basically a teenager, though.
I'm really curious how Anbennar although being so overrun by troons (no offense) can manage to remain coherent. Every other mod gets ruined by such a discord community, but strangely enough the larger ABNR gets the better the mission trees become. Where Paradox is still making mission trees from way back when they were released ABNR devs make stuff like phoenix empire, sun rise empire, centaurs, road warriors, castanor
>>1055069how? you can basically get double that before the rianvisaneed to speed colonise more as venail
>>1055381I didn't notice it was overrun by troons.
who do I play as for the best Emperor of Anbennar roleplay? Wex, Istralore or Wesdam?
>>1055550ok who is the austria of anbennar
>>1055561People will say wesdam or wexIn reality it's asheniande
Do goblins get some event that allows them to change religion?
>>1055623Most monsters that demonsterize while bordering corinite, ravelian, jadd or thought nations do
>>1055381At least they still are capable of casually joking about genocide..
>>1055385look at the profile pics and people in the discordyou can't talk with anyone therethey have this "Ok :))" vibe to them which says "I'm gonna fuck up your shit :)" like a bitch
>>1055561Whats that country with three pearls for a flag?
>>1055536Seinathil, fuck it
>>1053421no I just hate dwarves and miss when estates were actually good
so will they ever make the revalian state fun? it's a solid concept but it comes way too late to actually be playable
>>1055576Im cooming for that feng harpussy
>>1053760Its getting delayed to August lol
Corrin is made for big half orc cock
>>1056057Proof? I can't find shit other than discord shitposts and those are already telling me that it's delayed to September.
>>1056185They're so behind based on their bitbucket updates. Mod's getting too ambitious.
>>1056057well yeah, when someone said the release target everyone just kinda went "lol" but it never changed for some reason, I have no idea who set that date or why
Fuck I want to play Jadd again but I want until both Asia and Africa content are in
>>1056228>Asiayou can already play there>Africayou're gonna wait a while and for nothing since jadd won't be relevant there because some dev already said so
>>1056257>you're gonna wait a while and for nothing since jadd won't be relevant there because some dev already said soSo only west and east expansion. W I D E
What's the not-Japan? I want to start small and form a nation/empire of honorable not-samurai
>>1056259Up down bad. Left right good.
>>1056277Mechanically there's a bunch. Not-India, Lake Fed and One Xia are all Japanese. Culturally, I'm not really sure. Haless seems very Chinese except for the Oni.
>>1056277Unironically the Command are the Japanese of Anbennar
Ducaniel the best
Malacnar is such a cool run, damn.>centers around your ruler being a good general>get a ton of buffs the more battles you win with him in charge>up to 20% morale, -3 unrest, and several more on that tier>no stab hit on ruler death>even gain a stab on ruler death if you invest in a kickass barge to send him over the waterfall>only downside is nasty penalties for not getting into battle for a long time>but rebels count so you don't even have to be constantly at war and the timing is very generous
merchant republics would feel so fun if the lack of estates didn't feel so shit, can't even expand infrastructure outside my capital twice without going over government cap
>>1056320>if you invest in a kickass barge to send him over the waterfallMore gifts falling from heaven. God bless the waterfall.
Do the goblin formables allclan and undersomething have missions
>>1056352Yes, Allclan's MT is quite big
>>1056354The other one doesn't have any?
Ooh this is new.
>>1056508expeditions are done in a cringe way imo
>>1056552Yeah I didn't really get it, so probably won't do them.
There's no easier way to play as Vanbury Guild other than setting the game to full speed and waiting, is there?
>>1056670Not really. If you don't enjoy colonizing, it's a poor choice because early game VG is just colonizing Amadia and Haraf and killing the artificers.
So I’m a few years when the eu4 mod (and eu4) is winding down what would you want to see in a Vicky 3 Anbennar mod?I’m thinking second dragon wake and interactions with space elves since their not going to be hidden long in an age of exploration.I imagine interactions with sky giants as well because of blimps and other possible aircraft.Basically I just really like the idea of modern technology making it impossible for the more ancient and powerful races to ignore mortals any longer and that interaction causing global catastrophe.
>>1055536For me it's Verne, one of the best positioned contries in the game.
>>1056282One Xia are chinese wuxia. Japanese are the Command and Oni.
This is a bug right? why did it give negative absolutism.
>>1056973From the description I'd say it is but I have no idea where that modifier comes from
>>1057029It's from the court and country disaster.https://eu4.paradoxwikis.com/Court_And_CountryThat modifier should be increasing my max absolutism. I feel like this is because i installed a submod (the anbennar homebrew) on to an ongoing save, damn.
>>1057049uninstall that shitty mod, next stop using the workshop version and update to the latest patch of EU4, the patch you're playing had the retarded court and country bug because paradox are incompetent
>>1057088>uninstall that shitty modWhat's shitty about it?>next stop using the workshop version and update to the latest patch of EU4Sadly i'm playing on pirated copy, and i don't see an easy way to update to 1.33. I also get the feeling that i won't be able to use my current saves if i updated my eu and anbennar to bitbucket version. Anyway i just found the file for the modifier, so i'm just gonna fix it myself seriously.
Holy shit i just realized i'm actually playing on 1.32.0, and the bug is fixed on patch 1.32.1. No wonder i can't find it in 1.33 changelog.Guess i really need to update my game eh.
>>1056734>in a few years Mods don't end. They only expand and branch.
>>1056198Have they considered focusing down on specific trees and polishing them into 'mini-updates' in the meantime? I did take a run-through their discord mission tree development chats and it definitely seems like some teams are working hard while others are doing what I do at my WFH job (absolutely nothing while bullshiting middle management that things are in progress)
>>1057256PDX game mods are alergic to mini updates for some reason. Every release has to be this giant thing with huge changes and where not absolutely exceptional content get's drowned in the tide.
>tfw no half elf/half orc race for the deepwods
the year is 1478
>>1057342>Thinking WishPig wouldn't murder anyone who even dared to think about half-elves ever mattering.
>>1057390That's what happens when they don't get a mythic conqueror
>>1057256>>1057340If you want mini updates use the bitbucket releases.
>>1057428I've never seen Lorent not become the number 1 world power if left alone by the player except in that one update that buffed Gawed.
>>1057342the description of half orcs on the racial tolerance menu mentions that it includes elf-orc pairings too, also the half orc artwork is just the orcish artwork but palette swapped lmao

Ibevar emperorWhat do I do once the religious league are activated? Do I snake my way east to get rid of the CoR, or do I fight the heretics near me with the cleansing CB?
>>1052357Upcoming Ravenmarch missions look ok. Can't say I'm crazy about the upcoming Command stuff.
>>1058290Which one is Ravenmarch? Is it an adventurer or that little bit of land that Corvuria and Aenaeiaeade fight over?
>bitbucket nerfs non-human/non-elf racesWhy do they keep this doing?
>>1058311It's what the adventurer "Raven Banner" becomes if they take the found your own country decision.
>>1058366Right yeah, the Corvuria adventurers, right?
What's so special about blademarches? The sword only gives +10% shock damage.
>>1058380But muh sword
>>1058380They get perma modifiers in their missions and the national ideas are mil focused so you can stack their modifiers with elven military type and some other perma modifiers from other mission trees and have a fairly formidable armyPic rel is from my Ibevar to blademarches gamex.
>>1058412That's a lot of damage
>>1058412>Ibevar to blademarchesHoly shit. Got a pic of you overall Military bonuses/military ledger?
>>1058365what did they change this time?
The more I read the grey eminence dev diary the better it sounds for Anbennar to switch development to that once it releases. Victoria 3 is looking like Imperator all over again and the mechanics and simulation in Grey Eminence (plus how they’re trying to make it easily mod able) seem to make it the best choice.The time period basically covers EU4 + Vicky 3 which is perfect since the Anbennar setting was initially conceived as being in an early 1800’s period but has obviously mainly been developed for 1400’s-1700’s.It would allow for more interesting goals than just blobbing like in eu4.
>>1058605>once it releasesit'll be a few years
>>1058610Yeah so by that time eu4 would have finished development right?
>>1054033The gold Kobbos have a mission tree about trying to find the Gold Dragon its pretty fun but definitely needs tweaking, you need a magnificent level feast spell for the last mission but I've been struggling to get a mage to high enough conjuration to do it. Spent so long I've full annexed and culture converted the jade mountains and formed multiple human puppet states across Haless.
>>1058612No. The EU4 mod has been getting developed for years. It'll never be feature complete and will continue to grow. It'll probably change hands multiple times I imagine, but I don't expect them to stop developing the EU4 mod.
Man Blademarches really shows how fucking strong +Monarch Skill can be if you get it early on in a campaign.It's like 1620 and the worst mil point stat I've gotten on a ruler was a 4 once, every other time it's been a 5 or a 6.
>>1058729monarch skill modifiers are additive which makes them a lot better than they seem at first glance
>>1058884Fight and win
>>1058884iirc once the league spawns it's already too late. Get ready for a nasty war. You're supposed to kill centers as they spawn, which is tricky in vanilla and very difficult in Anbennar.
>>1058898Oh, that's bad. In my game Lorent got eaten and is now my OPM vassal. Any chance that big Gawed will join the Corinites?
>>1058942They can, just keep an eye on how the religion moves.
>>1054911Skurkokli which is ruled by an evil gluttonous demon pretending to be an ogre
>>1054911Lorent, since their equivalent to the fr*nch
>>1059049What about New Lorent?
>>1059058One of the few things worse than France: Quebec
>>1059058The Leechdens? They're just a step below.
>>1059058New Lorent may be a shithole, but it's not filled with the Lorentish
Just ate half my country
>>1058987>>1059122How much content do they have?
Haven't played Anbennar or EU4 for a few years but I feel like playing. Should I go Venail or Dorfs?
>>1059197ate the swamp. Seems like a decently long MT.
>>1059207Do the lands you consume get a -modifier that keeps them from being recolonized for a while like Roadwarrior has?
So it turns out if you play as blademarches and want to conquer the deepwoods for the mission you don't have to be a pussy and slowly conquer them one by one once you've taken escann, you can just go in around 1500 with all your mil buffs, attack the biggest one, co-belligerent them all since they're always allied, slap all of their asses at once since your military is busted as shit and they're behind like 3 techs, and then seperate peace vassalize each of the smaller ones before taking a chunk out of your main target and peace out.I technically got like 300 AE in that one war, but since the wood elfs are geographically isolated and both a different culture + religion literally no one gave a shit, I took a combined 350 dev in total in that one war and only got like 40 AE with Wex and like 30 with Gawed.Now all I need is a second war against the last remaining wood elf nation and mop up the small orc and goblins that are left and I'll have the deepwoods by 1530.
>>1059246carve a road of blades from Vernham to Moduk
>>1059200I like dorfs a lot because I like city builders but Venail is probably the most designed content in the mod. Its their main narrative experience.
>>1059246Aggressive Expansion is infact, just a number.
>>1059320AE is something that's definitely important at the start of the game, especially in Escann.I just never realized that what happens in the deepwoods stays in the deepwoods.>>1059319If there's one thing that pisses me off about the dorfs even though they're my favorite part of the mod then it's that there's no good dwarf empire tree in the entire mod.Adventuring around and purging orcs is fun, and there's a lot of great dorf MTs like krak, mithradhum, gulan, kazad, skomdihr and (from what I've heard but I haven't done myself) dromak, but all of them either stay contained within their region, mostly just focus on their gimmick or are done by 1550.And the two tags that are supposed to be about dorf unification, amldihr and aul-dwarov, are basegame EU4 tier.Just give me a dorf tag that first devs their own region, then blobs into all other dorf holds, then just builds up everything or something.
>>1059375Mostly memeing about ae being just a number, it gets rough in anbennar, theres a lot more dev around the map than usual but its also easy to contain it, and also easy to get to unreprable levels of AE on some nations, in my Esthil run some of the Escann kingdoms had 300+ AE.
Okay damn Ibevar dev cost reduction is strongI just devved 3 separate provinces to have printing press and it all barely cost a thousand mana together
I'm not very good at this game
>>1059448That looks like youre playing the game right.
>>1059488Why does my AE spread to every nation? is it because i didn't demonsterize
>playing ga'nomes for the first time>not used to the the artificers mechanic so I forgot to do artificer research before 1500>realize I could've had an extra 50 years of infantry buffs while my 0-shock Arquebusiers get demolished by Gawedi armies half their size
>>1059589>+artillery powerGnomes just need to survive until cannons become relevant.
>>1059602I think you're right. Late-game gnome units look amazing. But right now, even with a full back row of artillery I get fucked in the shock phase every time. I'm still winning wars but it's so annoying how close the battles are when the enemy is hilariously out-gunned....but maybe that's an intentional move my the devs to make the late-game power curve more satisfying.
>give lorent my dynasty as their heir with favors>ruler dies, my heir takes over, get ready to press claim>he's a great conquererWell shit.Atleast he's like 40 already so it's not a long wait
What is the best human not-china country to play as right now?
>>1059661Beikdugang has the most content
>>1059667What is the one with the most content but not as focused on naval/colonization?
>>1059637Nimscodd should no problems, they get discipline/manpower/infantry power.
>>1059727nuugdan tsarai are the jurchens equivelant and they form their own qing
>>1059813Oh mad. I had a fun short campaign as those guys. They can absolutely mop up the east. Really cool lore as well. Creepy fuckers chased out of the desert by even creepier spirits.
>>1058610>few yearsmore like a decade
>>1057340Pushing things to the workshop is absolute AIDS. Occasionally it'll just delete the whole description because it feels like it. Best done sparingly to be frank.
How finished/playable is the raj with its mechanics?
>>1059956No one knows because no one plays there.
>>1059981Why is india always so shit in paradox games
>>1060050India's primary historical characteristic is that strong states didn't really emerge there. In paradox games you play as a state and want to gain power, often at the expense of other powerful states.
>>1060055pretty sure the Raj unifies though
who the FUCK do I play as
>>1060218What religion do I go for? I refuse to keep shamanism as them
>>1060245Jaddari makes most sense and it's canon option, but New Sun Cult is also reasonable, if you can stomach goblins venerating the elves.
>>1060313Is there a way to convert to Jadd without relying on RNG events?
>>1060356Not really. You can convert during demonsterization if you border Jadd nation, but better tactic is waiting for jaddari mercenary events, letting them work and convert your province and then spawning jaddari zealots, letting them occupy your country until their faith is dominant and then accepting their demands to convert.
>>1060245goblinic shamanism is pretty good, if you demonsterise whilst in bulwar or bordering a Jadd nation you'll get a conversion event though
>>1060245Hold out for Ravelianism and become the Gobbo Pope.
>>1059511AE spreads based on religion and maybe culture. I think rivals take a small amount regardless if you share a border.
>>1060679Idk, my AE spread seemed ridiculous. Nations way out of the area i'm expanding in getting AE too.
>>1060689Mod in 95% AE.
>>1060675No need to wait, by the time you start demonsterizing you'll probably border Corvuria and have corinites enabled, you can just go corinite and accept the ravelians later
>AI Istralore leading the RC side>AI Moonhaven leading the Corinite side
When the FUCK is chaingrasper getting missions?
>>1060996Liliac wars 2?
What's the best dwarven hold for ideas? Or do they all gove the same NIs? Also is grabbing expansion/exploration even worth it? Like it seems natural to just grab, but there's actually not that much land to colonize.
>>1061233It is kinda cringe how fast everything gets colonized.
>>1061233Serpentspine playthroughs seem to be all fighting all day and usually by yourself against multiple enemies. Considering the game gives you free colonists, I don't think it's really worth it to get expansion/exploration.
>>1061233>What's the best dwarven hold for ideas?Hehodovar. They have -20% devcost and -5% all power cost.
>>1061272wtf that's insane, which hold is that geographically?
>>1061294Middle Dwarovar, it's where Jaddari and Verkan Gulan (golden dwarvs) are.
>>1061298>>1061272Do they have a MT?
>>1061249>>1061233Counterpoint: get Expansion/exploration early on, then substitute it for something else further on.
>>1061416>early onWhat's funding your armies when you have 10-15k native stacks appearing on multiple colonies at once?
>>1061429Adventurer funds? + You can preemptively attack natives to stop them from coming up again
>>1061430Does that actually work on serpentspine though? Those natives seem to work a bit differently. Like can you actually eradicate them for good in there?
>>1061442Worked well enough for me. Takes a couple of actions as sometimes the number of natives is pretty big, but overall it worked pretty well for me
>>1061442It doesn't work well. They have extremely inflated aggressiveness and combat ability, so to wipe them out using the interaction you need to have very clear superiority. It also costs hundreds of mil points to even attempt to clear a province, setting you back years on mil tech. Which sucks, because increasing your mil tech is the single best way to marginalize the natives. At tech 3 you lose most of your 12k stack every time they rise up, at tech 6 your 4k stack can fend them off with minimal losses. Feel free to waste your points like anon says, though.
>>1061472Who the fuck said anything about doing it at tech 3?
>>1061233Depends on the ideas. For playing tall, it's Hehodovar as this anon says >>1061272Amldihr is better for playing wide and just conquering the Dwarovar, while Mithradhum has the best military ideas so far.
>>1061519Cannon dwarfs are better.
>>1061472Yeah I'm still not convinced taking expansion/exploration is the way to go. Better off going slow and letting your neighbours colonise for you.
>>1061564Fair enough. As Ahmildir I found myself losing some key provinces I wanted to nab early on due to insufficient colonizing speed/amount, and taking expansion was very god for that, but for other holds this might be less of an issue
>>1061569That being said. I fucking suck at Serpentspine. So you could be right. I've never had a successful campaign in there now that I think about it. Just had a Snotfinger one halted because Escann adventurers came in to get me.
>>1061580I had a pretty sucessfull "Ahmildir" campaign, I was just cucked from forming the proper Dwarven Empire by a) Harimraj taking most of the tree of stone and being my ally and being #1 GP, and b) my game kept crashing every month or so after 1660.But that's a relatively easy dorfen start, so I had the luxury of worrying about stuff like "long term planning" and "strategic procince aquirement" instead of just fighting for my fucking life for the first two hundred years
>>1061272Wait, is this hold called that just because the Heho is the one working on it? What the fuck?
How finished is the dorf related stuff on the bitbucket?Like the gems and expedition stuff?
Bros.. im retarded and poor. Is there way to play this mod with all of its futures with out bankrupting myself? Or is not comfortable playable in a pirated copy?
>>1061538Based Kanzad enjoyers. Their mt and ni make some nice cannon bonuses.>>1061233Orlazam is has a lot of stuff for cavalry dwarfs. They were my first serpentspine playthrough, and I found them rather fun.
>>1061693get the delicious russian cream
>>1061713>is hasI forgot what I was writing in the middle of the sentence.
>>1061410no>>1061668yes but he gave up from working on it ages ago
>>1061668Hehodovar also inserted as one of the ancestor dwarfs you venerate, the architect of the original hold.
>>1061564it's not worth taking either, you have a free colonist the whole game and multiple temporary colonisation bonuses plus everyone else has the same, it gets filled out quickly and rushing to colonise yourself just over exposes your weak economy and weak military and stretches your monarch point generation for virtually no benefit.
>>1061680Expeditions are working fine I think, gems do you mean of the Dwaverkron?
>>1061793I think a few are still not in the game yet but they also might not spawn immediately. I havent played a full dwarovar game on the bitbucket release yet.
>be marblehead>ally ovdal lodhum>help them conquer their whole mountain subcontinent>they start genociding my kin>get infinite money and dev by exproriating the countless amount of goblin refugees fleeing my ally with literally no drawbacks
>>1061713Cavalry dwarves are easy mode. The start next to one of the best trade nodes in the game.
Think its gay that all dwarves have to go through the disaster
>>1062106Make sense lore wise why the dwarf empire collapsed. Also make sense gameplay wise because the player absolutely snowballs without it.
>>1061954Who could have thought supporting regimes that commit racially motivated could be so profitable, eh?
>>1062111So you saying all dwarves are the same and thats a good thing?
>>1062175all the chuds who refused to live in the multirracial empire and went back to some shithole because of collective fascist dreams are the same, yes
>>1062175They're literally the same race.
>>1062175all dw*rves are greedy and malicious? yes that is true
>>1062193So are asians and blacks
>>1062536Yes, and all asian/blacks have the same culture. Your point?
how do I form elven Blademarches
>>1062741Either start as Ibevar and blob into Escann, eventually culture swapping into an Escanni culture, or start as adventurers, migrate into deepwoods and day 1 swap to Elven military, then form Blademarches
>>1062761Speaking of culture shifting, dos that change your Administration?
>>1062792Yes. Racial administration is tied to main culture.
>>1062797Any place to check out each administration's buffs? Or just the highlights
>>1059813Cool but too short. I wish there were something similar to Manchu / Yuan in this mod. I know mongols exist with the centaurs and these people are supposed to be manchus somehow, but a large part of the whole empire thing is ruling it, developing the land etc. which anbennar devs usually make a priority.
>>1062821https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Mi1s0hFJx3jRdnaS-EQKYf2zjJjLFt5U6f5-xvgmIM4/edit#gid=0second tab, dunno how updated it is
>>1062861also never realized how provinces with humans, halflings and half-elves living together have an inherent -30% dev cost
There is an update coming for end of may.
>>1062761Blademarches doesn't need Escann culture. Only capital is in south escann.
>>1062861Damn, -2% Army Tradition seems bitchin
>>1062899Damn, foiled again by 4chan's impeccable critical reasoning skills
how to fix hoardcurse goodim 27k in debt and I still didn't finish it
>>1063173fuck the banks asap
>>1063211ok now how do I repay the 30k...
>japanese ogre MT is buggedHow do i make it possible for me to build the monument? Completed the mission that was supposed to give you the modifier so you can build it but it wont let me.
>>1063221Just declare bankruptcy bro werks evrytim
>>1063229I think it isn't, one guy was talking about it in the last thread. Use console commands to fullfil the conditions of this mission.
>>1062921It's outdated. There's someone on the modding team obsessed with "balance" and keeps nerfing every single thing in the mod.Eventually we'll end up with races having only +2.5% modifier differences and everything plays the same.
>>1063264>It's outdatedLucky for me, I know how to edit the files, so it's only as outdated as I want it to be
>>1063264Part of it is that there are a few MPfags on the team, and I'm sure they'll try to balance the game for MP so that the mod is usable there. I don't think this is bad, since even moderately ridiculous numbers can make a big difference, but plenty of nations still feel different in MP.That said, there are also anti-MPfags who oppose balance and such, and create MTs like Nuugdan Tsarai, which don't work well in MP. This also isn't bad, since singleplayer and multiplayer shouldn't play like each other.What matters is that you keep general systems and mechanics balanced so that you can have stable MP games, while individual nations can get as weak or strong as their flavor demands, MP balance be damned.
>>1063317>Nuugdan TsaraiGive me the Nuugdan-pill. What's their deal and why is it anti-MP?
>>1063319>What's their deal and why is it anti-MP?Basically, they blob hard early game, but don't scale. They don't get institutions or tech as a horde, while Daxugo/Guwaamud keep the debuffs but lose the horde buffs. And Daxugo also gets a disaster that can end your campaign.All that, when you don't get bonuses to compensate - you don't get much dev cost, army quality, or manpower after settling down, when those are the 3 most important factors for a nation.MP nations tend to be evaluated on their manpower, army quality, economy, and early game strength (for snowballing). Manpower and economy are both determined by the quantity-eco-quality dev meta (with vanilla ideas), but some nations handle these better than others. Army quality comes down entirely to the nation, such as how Centaur cavalry is busted or how Elves get discipline stacking.Of all those things, Daxugo gets nothing, which means it's easy for an Oni or One Xia or even Bim Lau player to kill them and take their lands, which can get rather wealthy.
>>1063332Oh, so they're unbalanced to the bad side. I thought they were op.Honestly, I'm a big fan of balancing by everyone being OP, but I understand that's not what everyone is into
>>1063317Haven't MP people been complaining about harpy One Xia for a year now yet nothing has been done about it
>>1063340Harpy One Xia isn't as busted as it's made out to be. In my latest MP lobby, we had a harpy One Xia player stagnate and die because their army quality is all they had going for them.They don't dev well, and they struggled to expand.
>>1063343Why do you even need to dev in mp, for institutions? Other than that expanding is always better and more efficient, isn't it?
>>1063351You want to do both. Each point of military development adds 250 manpower, and you also develop production on the side, which gives 0.2 goods produced per click - all this at a cost of under 10 mana per click (if you optimize). The goods produced also increase trade value of various nodes, so it adds significant income. The quantity-eco-quality dev meta means that nations start getting to 1M+ manpower, and conquest alone isn't enough to create armies of that size.Finally, developed provinces also cost more to conquer, so it's harder to lose land when all your provinces have 21 development.Developing provinces is the best thing you can do, but expansion is necessary so you can develop more provinces for the minimum possible mana costs.
>>1063340only meme lobbies don't ban harpy one xia>>1063351>expanding is always better and more efficient, isn't it?It is, but when you have enough players in an MP lobby all the AI dies within a hundred years so your only two choices are devving or grueling wars with other players
>>1062904Hoping Jiantsiang MT still makes it inWant to play a Harimar nation but fuck playin in Rahen lol
>>1063357I find the idea that playing tall/development focused is optimal, and that you only expand to have more provinces to develop a humorous one. I agree with it, and it's a very fun playstyle imo, but it's the type of statement people would consider stupid a few patches back
>>1063234The MT isn't bugged?
>>1063317MPfags are a cancer on this entire genre that should get fucking removed via rope
>don't want quantity because it makes the game too easy>still pick it in the first 4 ideas because -10% dev costliterally every game
>>1063507I never pick quantity
thank you whoever recommended jadd marblehead, didn't expect to find it so enjoyable
>>1063562>That UnguldavorHoly shit, is that it in the serpentspine as well? Haven't seen that before
>>1063620yeah but that's because west serpentspine was really weak this game, Stalbor has a slightly bigger army than them currentlyfor reference they hold Amldihr and it's a 3 dev province
>>1063539Same. It's disgusting how OP this idea set is, compared to shit like defensive or aristocratic.>>1063478MT is bugged, but that's because they reworked this monument from building to monument or modifier or something like that, so the best way around it is to skip that mission with console, unless you want to edit the game files. At least I think this is the issue here.
>>1063478>>1063736It's not exactly bugged. It's just not finished. The Oni are still being worked on. I think they will be done by the time of the steam update. Like their formable isn't localised yet. At least it wasn't a few weeks ago.
>>1063736It's only OP because anbennar spams negative manpower modifiers thanks to their based balance modder.
>>1063649>Amldihr and it's a 3 dev provincelook how they massacred my boy
its not even 1600s yet and I already want to give up this gamehow do i force myself to keep playing after the early game?
>>1063938Play with mythical conquerers so you still have a threat at that point.Issue is those can completely ruin a game if one spawns close to you early on.
>>1063938basically me every gamei play maybe until i form the last tag i can as whoever i start with then stop since after thats its just blobbing
>form amldihr>do a couple missions>get a couple vassals like the MT tells me to>by 1530 their libery desire is already uncontrollable cause of their high dorfen dev combined with their relative power from having multiple of themWhy the hell is THE dorfen formable in the former dorfen capital still completely broken on a basic level?Unless there's a change to how each individual dorf vassals LD is calculated (for example by making it something like PUs which are calculated individually), any vassal focused dorf will always be broken garbage no matter how much -Libery Desire and +Diplo rep modifiers you give them.
>>1063960What version are you playing? I got the bitbucket version a few days back and the MT gave me loads of permaclaims.
>>1063960two vassals and they're highly disloyal? you're probably too weakpost a screenshot
>>1063938By just playing. Stop giving up on things and see them through til the end. This applies to real life also. Just do it
>>1063977Steam, don't know if that changed on the bitbucket but it gives permaclaims on holds if no dorf owns it.Which works, but I feel defeats the point of the whole MT and your ideas.>>1063981I already deleted the save, I owned a pumped up almdihr area, the serpent vale and the cav hold + the sapphire dorf hold, and I had Krughdir, Krakdhumvror, ovdal lodhum and the ruby dorfs sitting on the hold south of natvir as vassals.Even with the reduction from the national ideas, influence ideas and the one from the estate I couldn't keep them loyal without pumping prestige into them.
>>1063990>I already deleted the saveYou're lying. No one deletes saves.
>>1052554There is a tag called Charmander? Lmao
>>1063992>No one deletes saves.Nigger what are you talking about.And why the fuck would I go on a mongolian throat singing imageboard to lie about a mission tree of a nation in a mod of a gsg.
>>1063990only six holds directly owned? that's nothing
>>1064007Why would you delete a save?
>>1064025Why would you not delete a save if you're done with a game
>>1064030Because it takes up no space and then you can open it up and look at the map.
>>1064032>takes up no spaceI have like 30GB worth of paradox saves you fucking liar
>>1064035I could fit 30gb in my asshole and still have room. That's nothing.
>>1063982>just keep playing an eu4 save you find boring.Why? I play video games for fun, if theres nothing else I want to do and im not having fun, why not move on? Its not some moral failing.
>>1062854Did you not get through the disaster after forming daxugo? The MT extends after it, with a whole bunch of missions focused entirely on ruling the empire, drafting a code of law and the like
I just formed Blademarches and somehow fantasy hungary decided to be my PU
>>1064379Corvuria somehow never gets good/many alliances/RMs in my games, so that happens more often than you'd think if you go for kt
The centaurs explode even if they unified? I have been fighting them for almost 30 years and I have only 10% war score because the lake retards keep throwing 5k soldiers into 33k stacks.
So whats the most fun Aelnar pathI only know about Lithiels AAA batteries
>>1064696You played the best path already. Calasandur's path is only good for the very last mission which reveals he started the Rianvisa.Other paths are meh especially the religious path which Jaddari does better in every single way.
>>1064696Dahvar gets a new religion and can culture convert faster but that doesn't really matter when you can use genocide mechanics (which the missions force you to use).Sicherior gets more perma-claims but it doesn't really matter when Lithel gets cores on all of Aelantir.Aelthanas and Kayd are boring/unfinished.Calasandur is fine if you're a lore person (lol) otherwise his path just has a watered-down mission tree compared to Lithiel/Dahvar/Sicherior.There really isn't that much that you're missing.
>>1064704>Calasandur's path is only good for the very last mission which reveals he started the Rianvisa.But why? He didn't need to do that if he wanted to take over.
>>1064696>lithiel's aaa batteriesIve never finished an Aelnar campaign because I have adhd. Tell me more?
>>1064728all the ruinborn in the empire are used as magical fuel for her new flying city
>>1064718Lore isn't complete but it's inferred his plan was to kill the royals and be the natural person the elves will look to lead because he's the last of the royal family and 6/6/6 stats. He didn't expect Rianvisa to tear the nation apart.
Has anyone done krakdhumvror republic path?I've only ever heard it's just worse than the monarchy
>>1064763yes. it's ok.
>>1064657doesn't matter how bad the situation gets, it's basically impossible for AI KU to avoid exploding and after that centaurs become a joke
>play in the not mediterranean>go to war>instantly get my heavy ships hunting pirates sniped>nathalaire instantly takes 2 light ships and slave raids my entire 20 provinces long coast in a single weekI hate these fucking shitters so much holy fuck
Nimscodd is comfy.
>>1064847if you can survive
why are harpy provinces with no minorities a thinghow is a 100% female population sustainable
>>1064895They leave their province on their wings to go kidnap men and/or go whore it out
>>1064895Apparantly they can also fuck wild monsters of specific types and only really during Eu4 period start switching to avariel descendants only?
Took like 9 months break from Anbennar, what's new?
>play seinathil>finally start caring about hre mechanics>very fun game but unoptimal as fuckwhat's another good small nation I can use to decentralize the EoA?
>>1064895With lots of kidnapping with intent to rape
>>1065249Konwell or Estallen? There is also Toarnen, but they get pretty big by the end of their MT. Not sure how much you have to expand as Istralore, but they are in good position to take the imperial throne.
Surakel not Surael ok?
>krakdhum MT civil war event immediately into hoardcurse right afterGoddamn
>>1065299I had it the otherway round, which is probably for the best
>>1065305The only reason I survived this was because literally every other usual threat in that campaign (grombar, centaurs, some great conquerer dwarf squatting on amldihr) had collapsed before I ever had to encounter them, so I basically rolled into an empty northern pass/serpent vale and then dealt with the two disasters with not threat from my surroundings.
>>1053365I'm glad you like my mod anon.
>>1063507>>1063736Offensive is the best military idea group now because as of last patch the AI spams tier 8 forts like a motherfucker and it gives you the best siege modifier in the game. Quantity is still good but it's really just overkill most of the time, I'd only take it if you're a country in a really shitty starting position. Defensive and Quality are near useless as usual.
>>1065334Defensive and quality are bad for vanilla standards, in Anbennar defensive is the best for the dwarovar because of the AT you get from killing natives, quality stacks really well with elves ans gnomes as well.
