We rarely have threads for these games in general, so I'll start:

The EUIII expansion Divine Wind will be released soon and Paradox is accepting pre-orders.

Also, been playing as Ottomans in the MEIOU mod and I say that it's very easy to expand in Europe.

Yay! Good to get this sort of thread going. They are so wondrously detailed that I'm spoilt for choice whenever I try to start a new game.

I've been looking forward to Divine Wind. Probably going to download it from Steam.

Have you ever used the doomsday save converter?

I haven't - I don't have a Hearts Of Iron game yet. [lol]

I don't either, but won't it work with EUIII ——> Victoria II?

There is supposed to be Crusader Kings II coming out after DW. Just to complete the set, one could play

EU: Rome ——> Crusader Kings ——-> Europa Universalis ——- > Victoria ——-> Hearts of Iron grin

[up][up] Sweet. Will look it up

[up] What does MEIOU do? Is that the starting map in 1399?

No, MEIOU has a 1356 start, and that game is currently in 1400.

Oooh, looks interesting.

It doesn't seem to have done much for the Byzantines, I must say. Greece dissolved into even smaller states.

Well, my first move was to conquer the Romans. The Romans have a better start in 1356 than in 1399, that's for sure.

^They only have the coast near Constantinople in 1356.

Who do you mean by "Romans"? As in Byzantium or the city of Rome itself?

My friend is obsessed with Byzantium. I helped him defeat the Ottomans in Southern Europe. It's a bit a lot easier when you have the English navy block off the crossing between Greece and Asia Minor.

Yes, I'm talking about Byzantium.

Byzantium is referred to by its proper name in MEIOU.

Sadly, no. My PC wouldn't be able to handle it. It's okay though, the first game is still great. For example, here's a screenshot from one of the last games I played, as the Transvaal:

Aw, yeah.

So you managed to prevent the whole Scramble for Africa?

@Kinka: Oh yeah, the Byzantine empire is a modern distinction as most people believe that "Rome" was only referring to the Western part which fell ages ago. I still get confused when people say Rome though. Especially as Europa Universalis has the potential to revive some long-dead civilizations tongue

[up][up]

Nice job. Which was easier to defeat, Britain or the Zulu?

I guess I'd say Zulu, because that's the only one I fought. I actually purchased South Africa from Britain, as well as all the other European holdings in Africa.

Why anti-Draka? Because you have a large liberal population and have slavery outlawed?

I haven't been playing too much Paradox recently. I've been wrapped up in some other games, plus I'm waiting for Divine Wind, and a good patch or mod to perfect Vicky 2 a bit more.

Why is it that Paradox always seems to release games that are only half complete?

[up] Seems so... it's to do with their being small and needing a constant source of income. It's more excusable with Paradox than it is for a big company like EA.

@Medicus: A hippy, pacifist draka is still a draka. In any case I admire your roleplay, but it would force me to conquer other European countries and THEN take over Africa. tongue
