    Here's my Dutch Empire in 1887. A war involving all the GPs in Europe just broke out from a crisis over Southern Serbia. Let's see how well Germany fights on 3 fronts: we have better tech than France, Austria, and Russia, and the UK and I should be able to easily kick France out of Africa.


    When and how do Great Wars get unlocked, by the way?

    Great Wars are invented by technology, and start by at least 2 GPs on either side. And it should be around 1890.

    Random event shortly after 1890.

    Code:
    	trigger = {
    		great_wars_enabled = no
    		NOT = { has_global_flag = great_wars_enabled }
    		revolution_n_counterrevolution = 1
    		year = 1890
    	}
    
    	mean_time_to_happen = {
    		months = 8
    	}

    Cool Romania

    Here is my first game in HOD as Romania starting in the House Divided scenario:




    Germany collapsed around 1922 via rebels after a devastating great war against France, Italy, and Russia with a collapsed Austria and the U.K. Poland came into existence by way of a crisis in the 1880's and has been growing ever since. Hungary was my little creation after a war with Austria using the "free country" CB.
    All the crises to get my cores back failed, so i had to war with Austria, O.E., and Russia, who was caught in a war with China at the time, to get them.



    Surprisingly Australia AND Canada are great powers!



    Russia fell to a Fascist revolution in the last year. World war inevitable?

    I was so worried someone might beat me to posting the first shot of Yugoslavia! I love the colour.

    Click for larger version:


    I started as Serbia in 1836. Got knocked around a lot by the Ottoman Empire and Austria and lost more than my fair share of wars, but survived somehow. The crisis mechanics were a bit hit-and-miss. I got Albania and Ottoman Montenegro in a normal war. Russia's my BFF; been like that for most of the game. At one point I took Slavonia and Croatia from Austria, but they got them back again just after the Ottomans trounced me in another war. This screenshot is just after I got the crown from the gutter event thanks to Montenegro. I have no idea what I did to deserve it, but I was very pleasantly surprised. My fascist ruling party will have to roll back all those free 'democracy' reforms of course, but the cores and accepted cultures should be worth it.

    Note the American Aegean Islands, Dutch Libya/Egypt, France in Italy, the Ionian Peloponese and the atrocity that is independent Danzig. Germany only formed in the 1900s after some minor German state had a pan-German revolution.

    Yep; as well as Slavic nationalism as a whole.

    And the very existence of Austria-Hungary as a great power... I can't imagine a few islands in the Pacific holding the same weight.

    Well, it seems that one can abuse the colonial system even more in HoD than AHD, since I was able to colonize almost all of Africa in 5 years...UK is just now researching Breech Loaded Rifles, which is why they weren't competing

    Well, it should'nt have happend like this... The first 3 CB I've justified got me almost full BB, then I went crazy since no GP would move even if I cut through their spherelings. It is stil early game so I'm thinking about Persia...Ottoman Empire... Austria ?
