HOI3 needs the Semper Fi expansion to be fun. It adds the ability to see command lines and expand them, which makes managing brigades fun again. Previously you had to click ever single brigade to know where the **** the higher officers were. Being able to set theathers of war was also a godsend, so you generals don't decide to invade Albania after you sent them to protect Africa.

That's exactly what you say after you conqer Albania and lose everything in Africa to the English.

Seriously tho, I really loved playing HOI3, even wrote 2 AAR here somewhere, but EU3 is taking all my time now

edit: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/75...on-iii-767890/ maybe half an AAR

I don't even know why you'd risk a war over Albania. It's such a worthless province, and the threat of getting your country cut in two and invaded is p serious vs a dual power with strong armies and navies.

It's so freaking worthless that if I were Otts I probably wouldn't take it at all; maybe vassalize if there was an opportunity, but even the infamy is steep for the crap return.

I believe it's cored for him though, which would make it somewhat worthwhile I guess.

Officially speaking the Milanese court has no position on this potential conflict, other than to say the ottomans are dirty heathens destined to an eternity in hell.

Ya Burgundy is OP now, i think they boosted it in the new expansion. Insane sliders for land war and missions to take all the rich lowlands, once you beat france early on you cant be stopped

btw to expand on this, vicky 1 + revolutions xpac (aka ricky) is my fav paradox game. Your population is not just numbers, but is abstracted as "pops," stacks of people in a province that can be soldiers, farmers, aristocrats, factory workers, etc. My favorite part is that they finally found a way to make wars actually costly. Because your manpower pool is made up of the total number of soldier pops you have in your country, as you take casualties so do your soldier pops, so very costly wars can make it so your manpower pool is crippled in future conflicts. Losing pops in wars to occupation or by having to draft your pops means your economy can collapse due to having no one working in factories etc. Made wars much less frequent (at least against equal powers).

Game also has a fairly good working economic system with supply/demand and such. Lots of problems mainly due to standard terrible AI, and Great Britain being pretty overpowered, but still a lot of fun.

Not as familiar with vicky 2, I played it for about a week with all of the mods fixing pop demand bugs and other errors, but I didn't really love it as much. The sphere of influence system/minigame thing they have is really ****in stupid and makes it really difficult to play as a non-great power iirc.

auto-saves takes 1m10s for me all of a sudden. dont think it was gradual, only began noticing it the last couple of saves. is this common?
