I noticed that there are a lot of Paradoxians on here, so I started this thread to see who plays EU3 and how you're doing in your current game. Here's mine:

OK, first the background: I'm playing with Death and Taxes 3.4 on Divine Wind 5.1. I started as Naples, formed Italy, made myself an Empire, got elected Holy Roman Emperor, and I control the Curia. Having just kicked superpower France a good one in the tuckus, I can safely say I am, by a hair, the greatest power in Europe. (My ally Sweden was in that war but did little more than serve as bait to keep the English off me.)


And here's a diplomatic map, where bright green are vassals and blue-green are allies. Blue means a Royal Marriage.

To those who know the game (or are just curious):

1. Those small countries in Italy are Genoa and Milan. France made me release them in an earlier war. I have since punished them, but I haven't gotten around to annexing the minors yet. Once the truce expires, though...

2. The small, disconnected country in France is Armagnac. It's my vassal; I made them release it in our last war.

3. Yes, Normandy exists (not independent, though, it's a vassal of France.)

4. Yes, that's the Pope in Holland. More than one country has the mission to bring him back to Rome.

5. That tiny splotch of yellow in England is Scotland. They've been vassalized and I expect England to form Great Britain soon.

6. That ugly brown bit in Spain is Granada, I think.

7. Yes, the Ottomans have expanded way too far into Greece. I'm working on it.

8. That tiny little gray country under Bohemia is Austria. Somehow I don't think we'll see them dominating Hungary this game.

9. The Golden Horde was doing a lot better before; they had surrounded all the Russian states, and I thought they were going to eat them. Now I'm not so sure.

10. The purple is Byzantium, restored as a kingdom (unfortunately they weren't able to hold on this long.) I hate to beat them up, but I do have a core on Corfu. Remind me to mod in an event that makes Byzantium switch to an empire whenever released, if I can do that.

6. The ugly brown bit is the Beja region of Portugal. The blue bit in Spain is Valencia. Granada appears to have been eaten by Spain at some earlier stage..

I meant what nation it was, not what province. The blue bit belongs to France. AFAIK, correct me if I'm wrong, Beja is not a playable nation in EU3: DW: Death and Taxes.

No idea, I know nothing about the game. But how do you have a nation called Granada which is nowhere near Granada? It's possible, I suppose, the game is an alternate reality after all.

Well, it's complicated. Granada starts out in the right place, as a vassal of Castile. But by 1493 we've had almost a hundred years of divergence. If a nation has a claim on a province, whether it holds it or not, that's called a "core." If a nation doesn't exist presently, perhaps having been annexed, it can be restored in a variety of ways. The one that seems most likely here is a "nationalist" (somewhat anachronistic idea) revolt in that province. I'll check it out when I play the game again.

Re Macs: Whatever. At least it's not in the shop half the time.

Re England: I'm afraid I don't follow.

Well I see many dots if England over the map and if remember Victoria 2 then you get it.


Edit: the stability problem is just a myth, if there is no crapwere then Widows and Mac just as stable at each other.
