    Don't forget the Persians that looked just like Arabs and the Potato Iberians.

    This existed in 1.00 but I'm not sure when it fires. This has of course long been an issue with Pdox games, but I wish that alongside more consistent demands by your ally, you also had an option to support them in gold instead (like Crusades), or even to say "I assign General X with Y men" and they automatically join the meanderings of the ally troops. Nobody wants to fucking manually march over every time your ally declares war on Count Bumblefuck of Bumblehovel

    I dearly wish Paradox would just add some kind of "attack-move" command like every other RTS has had for around 25 years. They keep adding so many provinces that chasing the AI around becomes impossible unless you are heavily zoomed in and at low speed to click every time the AI moves.

    Turns out the people behind When the World Stopped Making Sense are already working on a similar mod for CK3. :)

    So far they've announced 476 and 535 as start dates. Something 4th or so might come later on, but understandably the farther back one goes, the more work is required (almost exponentially). The only plus side to working on earlier start dates is often better historical documentation.

    Their CK2 map for 476, if anyone is unfamiliar with the period:

    Incline, etc. Oh, and I found the GitHub repo for it, if anyone is interested.

    Good to know you're still kicking, Mags. ^^

    And yeah, I'm about to spend way more time with CK3 now that it's finally been patched. (Though in general I spend too much time waiting on Paradox games ... it always feels like there's a DLC or update, or hell, even just a patch or hotfix worth waiting on before getting (/back) into them. Kinda a holding pattern...)

    Finished giant tribal war sacrifice in Africa. tens of thousands of africans killed each other until I got enough prisoners for 3k+ piety. after which, I came to them and said: k enough with human sacrifices, we just dance instead now. also we build castles.
    it's Ok for a while I guess, but turns routine&easy quick.
    strange how tribes/barbarians supposed to be about who is stronger but I just played diplomacy all the time.
    also, claim kingdom through intrigue (meritocracy) - never I became a king easier in CK, ever.
    nice partition of everything (due to feudalism resetting gender laws) in hands of 2 black women (1 lesbo) and 1 african/german black blonde son (who got just some scraps). :shittydog:
    eh if only I did it so sister could marry her brother.
    I like options on release from prison and custom feudal contracts
    and some other little things

    That independence wars bug was a doozy. Basically made any independence revolt with more than a couple rebels autowin.

    Has anyone managed to get a game off the ground as one of the old CK2 favorites like Haesteinn oder the Karen guys? Being lone OPMs is a pain now.

    Haesteinn is as much a meme as ever. The Karen guys, much less so.

    Every time I tried to get anywhere with Haesteinn the French would sneak-attack me.

    I island hopped to Sardinia, released the initial county, then took Egypt. Took a few tries and realized keeping the initial county screws you, because France will come for it and it will make you look weak causing the AI to dog-pile. I think the key is don't dick around with raiding, but conquer as much as you can (avoid Jerusalem) in his life time then shore up. Then as he is about to die go to raiding and keep lots of money on hand. If you can survive the first few attacks you will stabilize.
