Just played some Tobuck from EaW. Love the concept for the nation. You start of as a fake republic and play as a gun-runner looking to sell off as much weapons as possible in a year to provide for his family and then a warlords state fighting autistic bats and then you get a massive tree depending on which of the 3 warlords you picked to reform the country.

Production cost and supply usage. Also you need robots tech to build robots. Robots are meant to be the path for high tech/high production/low manpower factions like new vegas.
But other than that, they are probably the best units in the game and you should always go robots lategame if you have the tech for them.

equalism is a subideology of communism
>>
>>1147685
I agree, but we're stuck with Scroup's original concept of commie horses out of nowhere and ya just got to do the best with what you've got. EaW lore actually puts communism as happening long before the Mane 6 visit Starlight and as much as that's all silly, making it so Starlight invented communism as a giant scam and possible sex thing doesn't make any sense with how popular it is. That there are four equalist paths in the game already strains believability.

Being able to spam infantry divisions until you run out of manpower vs. being able to make maybe 10 divisions of 20w robots.

Moderately hard, but possible. Just put up a rectangular defensive line along best defensive positions and do a lot of micro until enemy armies are exhausted from constant assaults of your positions, then begin encirclements and take them out one by one. I always take south-east first with angriver, katerin and yale and then focus on more powerful vassals. The entire focus tree of the lord protector is pure kino, so it definitely worth the time.

Kind of, but power armor is tankier and just plain better than even combat robots. Of course, with PA/spec ops you have to worry about special forces cap, which is quite low so you can't just spam them unless you're one of the brotherhood nations or something.

>>1148392
just finished his path two minutes ago so I can tell you that he's not really into expansion. He takes Quagattai and the Llama territory to the East, but that's about it. You might get claims on Aris, Zarantia, Tobuck and Chiropterra if they're tyrants, I would imagine, but not much more.

I think equestria got quietly buffed, they seem to hold the border a bit longer and ramp up division production faster. The bugs were stopped at mareposa with 25% buffs.

>>
On the other hand, they've done something incredibly cool with naval invasions. Also I finally saw the historical outcome of the north zebrican war, with hippogriffia partitioned. Does Colthage just not ally with a player chiropterra or is because nightmare moon won when I played them?

Yeah, Nightmare Moon will prevent the Agzat pact from forming, since the bats have their Empress to do the lifting for them and don't think they need Colthage. Full historical NZW ending includes Beakolini and the formation of Winggarden.

Also another crazy encirclement for the AI. Sometimes it just micros 3 or 4 mot/arm divisions and goes crazy, I wish I could trigger that more reliably since the AI still never really attacks a competent player without weight of numbers.

I think equestria just lost 40 divisions, a third of their army. And most of the new mareland army is trapped in the buffalo chiefdom, which is annoyingly keeping them in supply. The impassable terrain really makes a big difference to the war, although the small mountain chokepoints makes field marshal frontlines which the AI prefers behave strangely sometimes.
>>
And the bugs have been stopped dead for a year. Not because of a equestria, but because of 150 stalliongradian divisions. I'm beginning to see anons point.

The fucking yaks went supremacist and declared war on puppet nova griffonia, which pulled away enough troops to let the bugs launch a summer offensive in the north to capitulate equestria. 10/10, dunno how this happened on historical though.
>>
>>1148510
Holy shit, based yaks
>>
1016, Stalliongrad gone, minus another 4 million bugs and stalliongrads entire manpower pool. The AI seems to struggle to sustain offensives because it seemingly doesn't build airbases near the front. Sasuga paradox.
>>
>>1147685
Obviously, sadly the devs have fetish for communism and don't accept that it stands out among other ideology names now
>>
Hot take: remove stalliongrad altogether and expand nova griffonia south. Then give it a proper civil war between harmonists in the south and non-aligned/supremacists in the north, with virgilia as a spoiler. Harmonists would join equestria in the great war while the others would stay neutral or prey on it like stalliongrad currently does in the lunar civil war. Then assuming nova griffonia survives the war, it can appeal for protection (a guarantee) from either the aquilean republic or griffonian empire depending on its alignment, which would draw chrysalis more organically into wars in griffonia than sometimes being able to annex new mareland because of the broken peace system.

They weren't directly under Celestial. They were under a Princedom. Severyana, or something close to that. A client state, autonomous to fuck up enough that a communist revolt happened. Celestia let them stay independent after hearing that her royal guards/army committed warcrimes while invading the communists.

Part of the reason EQS starts practically disarmed is that the army is almost disbanded after that fiasco.

>>
>>1148648
As much as I don't respect Stalliongrad's existence, that's just not true. The population difference is too big. Hell, Equestria and some of its breakaways can core Stalliongrad.
>>
>>1148648
Before or after Equestria gets rid of their debuffs? Equestria has a better industry once they start taking things seriously.
>>
>>1148655
You know technically Stalliongrad can core Equestria.
>>
>>1148651
Do you offer them the defensive pact? I've done Zarantia's side of things.
>>
>>1148655
>that's just not true. The population difference is too big
It unironically is with the right mix of ideas. Pioneers give +2.5% conscription, Workers culture +5%, Mobile warfare werwolf tree +5% and sinister conscription law +7.5%, though I'm not sure if that's exclusive to some of the other focuses. Then add the later conscription laws, which equestria never seems to take. The AI will basically always take the first three on historical, so stalliongrad will have an army 2-3 times the size of equestria by the time the war reaches the pegasus-whinnyapolis line when you include 40-50 divisions from puppet nova griffonia. Even when the lines stabilize and equestria recovers, the pattern I've seen from multiple observer games is 200+ socialist union divisions to ~100 equestrian plus ~30 new mareland divisions.

>>1148656
After.
>>
>>1148665
>After
For maybe 5 minutes. You are either spamming 10 widths while the AI makes its borked division templates, are only considering the start of a war before they get rolling, or are disregarding AI division spam. From the sounds of it, you are also keeping Equestria distracted with the Changelings. AI Equestria can easily collapse to Canterlot before getting rid of all or most of its debuffs.

>Multiple observer games

>>1148668
>you are

>logs or pics
Literally scroll up. Stalliongrad in that game rushed conscription laws to scraping the barrel after joining the great war, probably because it was already at war with nova griffonia. Equestria's before the huge encirclement in the plains and with most of its industry had 100 divisions after a year of war + 40 from new mareland, stalliongrad had 150 when it joined at about the same time.

Just to piggyback, Equestria being slow to get divisions out is working as intended. The Great War is supposed to be like WW2 Barb where the Germans initially outnumber the Soviets, only for the tide to eventually turn.

That's because they never need them. Equestria loses absolute shitloads of equipment in the great war and is one of the few countries limited by equipment rather than population. The AI might be programmed to put fewer divisions in the field as Harmonist Equestria, but they absolutely can if they don't lose 5 million troops in the Great War like the AI does.
>>
>>1148663
Yeah, they still declare on me a bit after the war. Are they not supposed to do that?
>>
>>1148683
They have a focus tree DoW. All they need are five military factories, and they declare war. No NAP. I think it is delayed if they are already at war, hence the alliance to stop the bats.
>>
>>1148674
>The Great War is supposed to be like WW2 Barb where the Germans initially outnumber the Soviets, only for the tide to eventually turn.
That's a pretty dumb analogy. Equestria as a sleeping giant is far closer to america than the ussr, who were only ever outnumbered by the axis in late 1941 and who produced more tanks before the war than the axis did during it. The changelings don't have much similarity to the germans either, as they lack most of the strategic constraints (oil, rubber, trucks, two front war) they did. And the soviets only turned the tide because of lend lease and german material exhaustion, not expeditionary forces from questionable allies reinforcing their frontlines.

Narratively they're boring compared to communists elsewhere and gameplay wise they can be replaced by letting equestria raise another 30 divisions or so while debuffed. Though desu I think equus is boring in general outside of the bad guy routes.
>>
>>1148691
Go to the wiki, go to "What Country I Should Play", and look at the tag comparisons to vanilla gameplay. Equestria is USSR before and during The Great War, USA after it. Changelings have a post victory tree and event series which is The Man In The High Castle. The whole reason they invade Olenia is for the resources.

Until Paradox added multiple meme civil wars to the Soviets.

It was never going to be a 1-1 analogy to Barbarossa. Navy matters. There are meaningful faction members for the defenders. Kind of an odd fusion of the Allies and the Comintern. Like a fusion of France and USSR. The Great War has gotten even more complicated with Hippogriffia.

Not him, but that would bother me if it we're not universally accepted in fanfics and headcanons that Equestria is turbo shit at actual war, theres fanfic communitys around war and pones and its all just jerking off at the giga loses pones get at the start only for them to either get better or just lose, and when humans enter the equation is just jerking off at human superiority
Also stalliongrad's "pones but superior in some ways to equestria because their not sissys" is nothing out of the ordinary and is usually used to make contrast and blah blah, eaw equestria has nothing offensive going on, and eaw equestria only bothered horse fags because they want it bloated with content, and consider its current state as wasted potential, it has content thats for sure but given that war fics all tend to have equestria as the main setting its kinda bothering, this days i would say people have gotten over it, at least griffonia has pones around and all the stories are very enjoyable

Are most AI tweaks just snake oil? The only changes I've made that have ever had a clear impact are to division templates and strategy plans (focus order). Even things in the ai_strategy folder seem to be taken as a suggestion at best and there's no clear way to see what the ai is trying to do since aiview is so limited.
>>
>>1148772
If we went by fanfic logic then Chrysalis's reason for attacking Equestria would either be because she secretly loved Celestia and wanted her for herself, she was in love with some other pony (probably Twilight) and wanted her to herself, or because there was some random human who she wanted to kidnap and rape and also while she's there she may as well conquer Equestria just to make sure there's no one to save him.
Or Celestia would secretly be evil the whole time and it was really Chrysalis who was the good one.
Or the reason there was an industrial revolution was because of some random human showing up and spreading his advanced knowledge.
Or all manner of other crazy shit.
Point being, fanfics in general are not a good basis for making decisions based on.

Win the North Zebrica war as colthage, Wingbardy or Chiropterra, as long as all three are in the war and you don’t outright annex the hippos you’ll get the option to play the legation city that spawns. This has a balancing act between the three involved powers. Make sure the scales tip towards Wingbardy and you get futurist fascists. A better fash path for hippogriffia than Crack imo.

Would if I could but I started the War with the River Federation and now the game crashes the moment they try to attack me there is just so much stuff. I guess I don't have enough RAM. That or some fuckery with the magic guys.

Really the war is stupid already. I built level 10 forts all around the border so they refused to attack me just bombing me, cause I'm not that good at this game and hadn't researched any AA, just relying on fighters. I was still killing more, since I had jets and I think better air doctrine, but they just had more planes. The end Result was like 500k guys dead in like 3 months in literally just the airwar, that I was even starting to win by building radar and AA, despite the fact that every rail between the front and Griffenheim was bombed out and the forts were half rubble. The plan was to sit there, muster the integrated Griffon manpower while waiting for Nukes. Alas, maybe when I get a job to buy more RAM.

Also someone should tell the devs but the the River Fed had 0 railroads in the Northern states they integrated.

It's an Alternate History of the show, which starts around Season 6. The POD is that Chrysalis never tries to replace the Mane 6 for another coup attempt, and instead decides to industrialize for an all out war against Equestria. Because of this:

1. Starlight Glimmer never led a party to defeat her, meaning that the Season 6 finale never happened. In turn Starlight feels out of place due to never leading the rescue mission which reassured her doubts about herself, and eventually leaves the Mane 6 to go out on her own

2. Thorax never meets Spike and and advocate for a system of trading goods with other nations for love (The lousy peacenik).

3. The Storm King never invaded Equestria, and was defeated by the Mane 6 and Hippogriffs as he was preparing to attack, so no Movie events

4. Twilight's School of Friendship WAS made with its events playing out, but without the support of the reformed changelings and Starlight Glimmer, it does not do as good in the show. There are also only 5 students instead of six, due to the changling one now in the Changling Military.

5. Season 9 doesn't happen as the darker setting convinced the Royal Sisters to stay on the throne, which in turn convinces the villians to not team up and make a comeback.

I think Stalliongrad (and other minors which shows up during civil war) are better off starting as unruly regions of Equestria.
Have both Bats and Chrysalis trying to force Equestria to collapse or go into civil war would make for a good excuse as to why they choose to use the chance to proclaim independents right before the start of civil war, invasion etc. And if no civil war happens, Bats could still have their chance to get Nightmare Moon by having Bats win in the south and start their own invasion in Equestria by opening a second front to capture Luna and get her to become Nightmare Moon. While Stalliongrad, Crystal Empire and Griffons could have their own conflict in the north.

Would setting combat width in every terrain to a multiple of a theoretically historical template (say 27w) be an improvement over the current system? As far as I can tell, everyone is using 1-2 templates for infantry and armor anyway and meta division design is a prime example of complexity without depth ingame. I'd jack up terrain penalties as well to avoid mountains and marshes becoming speedbumps.

>>
>kaiserreich scrapped the cabinet system and uses basegame advisors now
fucking trannies
>>
>>1149436
Very cheap, very fast to train proto tanks. They're shitty compared to a tank, but given that most Griffon nations start with jack shit when it comes to tech they're a great alternative. The only thing they require is Aluminium for Infantry equipment so if you have that you're golden. Of course given that most griffon nations don't start with that much aluminium (or at all) you're better off rushing tank tech (that's what works for me) if you're a steel heavy nation, or rushing to invade a neighbouring country that has steel. Unless you're some poor sod such as Arcturian Order which needs to research basic breech loaded rifles, in which case they're a godsend.
>>
>>1149513
Also worth noting that they don't suffer terrain paneities like tanks, don't consume fuel, get effected by commando advisors and some nations give bonuses to them. I personally love using them even with tanks being available.
>>
>>1149472
They made the decision because of HoIVs shitty coding. Basically the game checks each single day if each single advisor for every single existing country is currently turned on or off which obviously takes processing power and causes performance issues. The devs tried a few workarounds but none were satisfying so until paradox implements a better system for cabinets into the base game the devs all agreed that they had to scrap the system.

That's the official line from the devs (I remembered a few things incorrectly but the point still stands that they scrapped it because of perfomance issues due to paradox shitty coding):
>Originally, the KR HoI4 Minister system was set up in a way whereby the player could choose their ministers, depending on ideology, much like vanilla HoI4. However, the behind-the-scenes code was discovered to cause a significant performance burden, as every in-game day, the engine would compute every country in the game trying to hire the ministers of every other country, regardless of the impossibility. Eventually, we ended up having to lock all ministers in their position to stop this from happening

tldr: she's kinda like TNO Oberlander mixed with TNO Gumilyov

long version: So Nationalist Posada would organize the world into superethnoses: the "Equatorials" (Hippogriffs, Colthaginians, Karthinians, etc.), "Temperates" (Equestrians, Herzlanders, Riverponies, etc.) and "Polars" (Pengunis, Polar Bears, Yetis, etc.). War between these superethnoses is inevitable, and between Equatorials and Polars it will be total and genocidal. Equatorials are the pinnacle of civilization, the most cultured, morally upright, and advanced people, while Polars are backwards savages who live to destroy.

So unlike Crack Lightning, who thinks of Colthaginians are a brutish people who must be subjugated, Nationalist Posada sees them as noble equals in the fight against the hated Polar races. And they should work together.

She also isn't big into the whole dictator thing. She prefers, basically, one-party democracy. Think Lenin's democratic centralism. So everyone votes on what to do, and then everyone shuts up and follows what the majority says.

Crack Lightning is rather left-wing for a fascist, but Nationalist Posada leans into full on nazbol territory. "Socialism but only for races who deserve it", basically.

Finally, while she's much nicer towards Colthaginians, she's even more extreme towards yetis. Crack thinks genocide is distasteful and it's better to set up a Manchuria tier exploitation state, but Nationalist Posada thinks it's the only solution to the existence of a race as monstrously evil as the yetis.

I tried playing Soviet Union and Soviets are a older enemy of mine, for being too difficulty and frustrating to play...So i got beated in the ass by the nazis but i forced to them an stalemate and was that, just a stalemate in the front and nothing more.

I have 15 industries in fighters, i have 2.5 millions after they killed 2 millions soldiers.

I giving up the game, was nice to play but i not have the time to keep up.

You need to set Pea Shooter to honor the deal, then rush down the center of your homecoming tree to get to “mayor of tobuck” with as much corruption as you can. Do the Umalez rituals a bunch of times (the small ritual is worth 1 point, medium 1.5, large 2, you need 15 points total, it’s fastest to spam small ritual) and then take the “Broken Aguilid” focus. There no indication that you’ve done enough rituals until you take the focus so either count carefully or make a save to trial and error it.

the acendacy basically forces you to invade griffonia if you want to end it
>>
>>1153510
I think it was a combined thing of dependencies and alphabetical order, with something which is placed earlier in the alphabet overwriting later mods.
I.e. "A Faggot's Tale" overwrites "Troon Story"
This also applies with multiple submods using dependencies unless one has the other as dependency too I think.
It's a truly paradox dev way of doing things.

Zebrica is good but could still use some polish. Hippogriffia in particular feels like some of the defeat paths and the Aris First paths should be fleshed out more. The Razorbeak, Harmonist/Raft defeat trees and Posada defeat trees should be as good as the Antifa tree. The bar for Hippogriffia is set really high by the Siren, Posada and even Harmonist paths.
The bat resistance mechanics really drag and it feels like some focuses are blindingly obvious correct choices (just rush war goals lmao).
Chital is consistent and good, probably doesn't need anything added or removed, just the rest of the countries in Hindia filled out. They run out of things somewhat early, but it's right as you become superpower 2020, so you have a lot of power to make your own path or call it there if you want.
Alysia needs more content. People seem to love her and she just runs out of content long before any of the other Tobucks, Walnut even gets two (possibly three in the future) paths that are each dramatically longer than hers.
Zarentia is well written and I think I'm happy with. It's a literal food nation and it doesn't write checks with one path that it can't cash with the others (WORM path aside)
Colthage is the ultimate mixed bag obviously. Needs content for the people's champion, Monzano but I'm not nearly as upset at the variable quality of their paths as I am some nations.

North Zebrica is really good at intercontential interactions, with Chital going after Kasa/Asturland, Sirens gunning for Equus, Star Father painting a different continent from him red, Bats getting stuck in with the Lunar Empire and general Hippo/Colthage naval dominance that lets them target south Griffonia relatively easy. But it hardly interacts with the rest of Zebrica at all. There's one Colthage path that invades Hindia, the sirens and at least one BAT path invade Maregypt, and Zarentia is horny for Azir, but that's about it. There's geographic barriers but it's still disappointing.

It's small but Polished IMO; Honestly would like to see more interactions between the Lunar Enclave guys and Equestria depending on the Scenario

I think mainstream Equestrian could use more content in general that is not resistance; lunar rebels; and changlin new order

I actually think some of the empty countries throughout the map that have been passed over could use content — If this were any other mod I would NOT recommend this, but this mod shows it has the work ethic and experience to fill up the world AND keep performance up

Right so I figured out what was causing the crashes ||the Anime Mod not being able to load in unit sprites||, so I get to continue the Golden Morning campaign.

I finally killed the River Federation after about 2 years I think, it was a really stupid war. Initially Imanaged a decent encirclement in the north because they kept stuffing divisions without supply there, after stabilizing the air situation.

After a few more less successful assaults North, which the Feds managed to beat back and nearly encircle. Then I finally got nukes, just in time for finally anhilating their airforce to the degree that Air superiority was a matter of deploying there.

So first nuke went on that supply hub on the border with Longsword proper and I broke through the Jezelgrad. That was actually the feds finest hour, cause they managed to kill most of my armour, probably mostly because I had forgotten to research APC's and didn't have modern doctrines yet. After that I got those and it was relatively smooth sailing from there, as I encricled what felt like most of their southern army, or about 60 divisions in the Lakeland. At that point I had already put them on All Adults Serve with about 4 Mil casualties to my 350k, by the end of the war it was 12,5 mil to my high 600k.

I take it's the time where all my neighbours besides Aquileia declare war on me?

Also the sprite work on the ground units is surprisingly good

Chiropterra, like all AI, are dummies. Let them spread out in a territory where they don't have any supplies, break through their weakest link, eliminate the encirclement. Rinse and repeat.
If anything, you should be grateful for Tobuck's presence in the area. If Pea Shooter does honor his agreement and Zarantia takes over before Chiropterra begins its attack, the defending forces are effectively cut in half since Zarantia doesn't inherit any of Tobuck's troops.
>>
>>1155110
You have to let them in north of Tobuck, let them flood into your infinite desert (they basically can't capitulate you) keep them away from your ports and scorched earth a couple of your supply hubs. Then cut them off north of Tobuck, and IMMEDIATELY force attack across the river through to their core land. Don't stop until you've got a sizable foothold in their territory, after which you can clean up their troops starving in the desert. If you wait to kill the encircled troops, they'll just shit out a dozen divisions and entrench them along the old line.

>>1155213
Similar to how fallout has pre war lore, Fallout Equestria has cold war lore
>ziggas are chemical warfare pros
>everyone took a warpath
>equestria becomes like the manehattan protectorate (the lilac zone in eaw)
>Equestria develops spell amplifiers that would be used to heal soldiers , imagine a nuke that heals
>one pony has the brilliant idea of sharing it with the ziggas with the hopes of making everyone harder to kill and have everyone make peace deals
>ziggas just amplify their alchemy bombs and everyone dies
>said pony later goes to a radioactive everfree
>the poison joke that turns chrysalis into a pony in pax chrysalia evolves into the killing joke poison
>turns that pony into a tree because years ago she said she would like to be a tree jokingly
That's the short version of the cold war lore, the spell amplifiers would later be used to fix the entire world like a mass scale version of the water chip plot that fallout uses.
>>
>>1155213
It's a pipe dream since TNO is taking so fucking long, but imagine more. Imagine EaW actually extending out into the cold war with appropriate mechanics for an age of limited wars and insurgencies.
You'd build up your nation in the initial early 1000s expansion/consolidation period before winding up a piece, or a player, in the new era of global conflicts. Vgh.

Also, considering he has the Schizo version of the shows ideals with a fashwave aesthetic, I kinda wanna read a Golden Morning peggy sue to like S1.

By my count I think this quest of Destiny comes at about 30 million military causalties and Gryphus. Leshy, the upper Gryphking Basin, Griffonstone and New Mareland getting nuked a bunch.

The Sirens, Star Father and the ELF are the only real rivals. Traitor Queen Lilac is almost there but ballbustingly hard, and Pax is a little bit too visual novel and not enough war game for me. I've heard Walnut Drive and Bargazen are pretty big in Tobuck, but I haven't confirmed it.

I'm pretty sure most people this days are aware of how cringe and low effort the fic can get, but it does have some nice content in there... also artists like to ignore the choices made by the retarded yuri fag writter and just draw lil pip straight, so there is no shortage of people who have read the fic and shit on it while at the same time being fond of the good stuff it has going
btw the ending is mega stuuuupid and i really not blame you for hating it as a whole.

Alesia really needs more stuff interacting with the rest of Zebrica, imo. You could either have the usual big blob, but it might be interesting if she essentially creates her own Holy League of autocratic monarchies. Kind of similar to Aquileia's Unaligned Path, but with a new spin.

It's not a Hippogriffia path, it's a Winggarden path. Set Beakolini to be in charge of Wingbardy in game rules, dab on the hippogriffs as one of the anti-hippo alliance just hard enough to get them to sign the scripted peace, then choose to play as the legation and tip the scales towards Wingbardy.

Also more importantly frontline changes.

>The default setting of ‘Flexible Cohesion’ functions as you have grown to expect - all units will be evaluated for placement suitability and potentially relocated to fill perceived gaps in frontline cohesion.

>Balanced Cohesion’ will only successfully evaluate units that are within a defined distance from the target (distances are moddable). In practice, this results in less unit shuffling along frontlines, but should still ensure that frontlines respond to changes in size and shape.

>The final setting, ‘Rigid Cohesion’ is intended primarily for long defensive lines, and will only successfully evaluate unit positions that are within a very short distance from the target location. In practice this results in relocations only taking place to neighboring provinces, and can result in gaps being created in frontlines if left unattended. It is expected that this setting will be used by players who primarily rely on micromanagement of frontlines.
>>
lol at the EaW shoutout:

>For those of you interested in modding, the addition of these subsystems also comes with some new tools regarding units. It is now possible to iterate over unit arrays in states and countries by condition, and apply a series of effects, including the awarding of medals, history entries, and other basic parameters such as affecting org, strength, and more.

Hippogriffia is Hippogriffia. Hippogriffia isn't America, save for the naming of its equipment and the general "isolationist industrial titan that decides to wake up and fuck shit up" feel of the USA.
>>
>>1156284
I mean, America is founded on white supremacy, and any realistic alt history communist America is going to have to tackle that eventually and it just gets tedious dealing with the exact same groups of racists and anti-racists. As a fantasy America, Hippogriffia is completely detached from that. It has an internal tension between bird horses and sea horses that occasionally flares up, and an external tension of how to deal with the rest of the world but the fascists and communists generally speaking share the goal of uniting both of these groups and harnessing that unity to impose their will on others. The biggest fascist and the biggest communist are personal friends and can reconcile their differences because Hippogriffian nationalism is civic nationalism first without having to have racial or religious undertones baked in.

But they're well made and fit the universe with 5.0 expanding heavily on content in the current generic countries with skeleton content.

The reason the map expansion happened was because 5.0's map was ready ahead of time so they released it with 4.0's California/Nevada overhaul instead.
