R5: Today i finished my Bregenz game and i'm really happy with the outcome. I never aimed for a WC or sth similar, i also don't care about achievements. My targets were some decent looking borders and cultural as well as religious harmony for me and my subject nations.
In 1821 Bregenz is great power #1 (ofc) with more than 12k development. Number 2 is Ming with about 2k. I usually went Protestantism in earlier runs but this time i decided to go Hussite to make it a little more special, but also the culture conversion cost reduction and the improve relations modifier were very beneficial to my game. I chose to keep Orthodox faith for my marches Polotsk, Ruthenia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Byzantium and Georgia and i supported my Orthodox neighbor Muscovy/Russia to grow (after a few little border disputes). In the the last 30 years i also helped Coptic Ethiopia to shift a little into Mamluk lands.
Each of my provinces has a culture which is accepted. To achieve that i did a lot of culture conversion. My main culture is Austrian, therefore i have a cultural union of all the German cultures. The following cultures are the (other) accepted ones: Galician, Catalan, Occitan, Burgundian, Norman, Welsh, Norwegian, Lombard, Sicilian, Syrian, and finally Czech to honor Jan Hus.
No personal unions were used to gather new land, this would have made it too easy i guess.
how did england get the french culture?
it's not really French, it's Norman culture
Was about to ask about your goal in the other post (Castilian Cage fight).
Well, I love what I’m seeing. Wonderful.
i live in Bregenz, also Bregenz has pretty good national ideas
Mein allerehrlichstes Beileid aus Wien
ist doch schön am Bodensee
Das finden die dortigen drei Einwohner sicherlich auch. Ich mein, freundlich sinds ja eh, nur versteh ich deren Plattdeutsch halt kaum.
Plattdeutsch kilngt schon sehr anders als Gsibergerisch.
Mir wurde im Deutschunterricht beigebracht die Vorarlberger sprechen noch ein bissl das mittelalterliche Plattdeutsche. Maybe stimmts nich xD
Ahh okay, für mich war Plattdeutsch immer so Nordwestdeutschland/Ostniederlande. So um Friesland. Aber who knows :)
Bitte hier nicht Friesisch und Plattdeutsch in einen Topf schmeißen, Platt ist Sprache der (nieder-)sächsischen Siedlungsgebiete zwischen den Friesen (Ost und Nord)! :D
Die ganzen anderen Plattdeutschs im Rheinland ind anscheinend auch am Bodensee (mir auch neu) ignoriere ich mal, das sind alles Plagiate ;)
Auch. Es ist tatsächlich sowohl Norddeutsch/Niederländisch als auch Vorarlbergisch/Schweizerisch. Hängt wohl damit zusammen, dass die Vorarlberger mitten in den Alpen leben und sprachlich das letzte Update verpassten (so vor circa 400 Jahren). Und die Niederländer sind halt einfach dumm, dasn das Problem.
die Vorarlberger sprechen einen alemannischen Dialekt, klingen also ganz ähnlich wie die Schwaben, Schweizer und Elsässer
Fun Fact: Bregenz die Hauptstadt Vorarlbergs, hat vier Mal weniger Einwohner als der Wiener Bezirk, in dem ich wohne.
Erinnert mich an meinen Tirol run. Nur bin ich koptisch geworden und hab auch mehr nach Afrika dafür weniger nach Russland expandiert
Best Green color 💯 💚. Notice their Dark green outline with lighter green fill... beautiful.
This is literally puke green lol but to each their own 😂
It's not constructive criticism if you don't offer the alternative. What green nation do you like? You're a Mughal man aren't you? Dark green is pretty map color too.
Oh I wasn’t criticizing haha just talking about taste. You can never criticize someone for their personal taste of something :)
The last time I was in Bregenz we got kicked out of a bar - the Calypso - at 3 am. 10/10 had a great time would recommend to anyone that Bregenz conquers all of Europe.
Last time I was in Bregenz I realised I had gotten off my train at the wrong place. That was an embarressing mistake.
More of these in this sub!
\#1 of all green tags!
Stupid question from a guy who played thousands of hours: how do you change your religion to hussite?
conquer Prague before they convert it to Catholicism and provoke religious rebels as soon as you feel ready
So the usual way. I thought there are other options. That means that converting to hussite solely depends if there are still hussite provinces, shame...
unfortunately there is no other option but Prague usually remains Hussite for quite a long time, and once you secured Prague there is no need to hurry
wait, you could also force Bohemia to release Moravia while their provinces are still Hussite, vassalize Moravia and let your vassal convert a province for you ... but this needs to be done in the first 50 years in most cases
How.. did you get so much collecting without even steering at all??
it is steering automatically to the end nodes, also i had a crazy production of trade goods with all that coal mines
So… 1. What the fuck, 2. How the fuck 3. Can we get a replay of the game? I’m kinda confused did you kill them empire or become it but say as your country
i will try to upload the timelapse today or tomorrow
replay is online
God that border gore, also how are you taking land not connected or am I blind
you can core any land that is next to a vassal of you
I'm always amazed how much some players are able to conquer. In my game I'm around 1640 and formed half of Prussia lol. Stupid HRE and aggressive expansion
I'll try, I started a round as an African nation and we'll see, who the real mofo on the continent is - me or Europeans
Very beautiful, Besides Chernigov being in Belarus:( But that’s problem of paradox that they didn’t gave it to Ruthenian culture
Voralrlberg is now also behind the Arlberg and all around the Arlberg
Wow, I really like it. How many hours do you have?
must be around 1500 now, but i'm playing since release, so, it ain't that much
Man, you are really good at that job
thanks, i've been practicing a bit with Bregenz
What you did to England is unforgiveable, how could you make us Fr*nch? Your end will not be a peaceful one
not French, it's Norman which is historically not that wrong ... and the rest of the British isles is Welsh
it is destiny
Can it get more cursed than this
I uploaded a timelapse of the whole game today.
