?+ Hey, Fistalis, how about a mod that would start in...let say, 1961? What would be the focus of the mod?
-Well, how about decolonization of Africa? Why 1961?
-Well a lot of african countries gained their independence by 1961 (27 countries) so it would give a player good variety of playable nations in africa and would still leave enought colonies left to gain independence (26 countries gained independence from 1961-1993 and their decolonization should be scripted to happen when it did; maybe even if they are conquered
) What would this mod give to a player that he doesn't already have in vanilla?
-More playable countries in Africa. Maybe more wars in Africa (should be modded in). In vanilla, some countries never get independence...(I reached '80 and just 4-5 countries in Africa gained independence). One more thing, vanilla is either all out war between USSR and Nato (very high tensions) or no wars whatsoever (even on high tensions) apart from scripted Vietnam, Korean, Eritrean and Israeli wars (I will not even consider those wars that never go any further from pure declaration) How dificult would it be for me (Fistalis ) to make this mode?
-Extremely! Then why are you suggesting this, are you going to pay me for making this or what?
I thought you would enjoy the challenge, and it would give you something to do before Update 3 comes Do you have any skills you could offer to assist me with the creation of this mod?
-Well, other than good will and enthusiasm (that are good only for research), no I'll let you know my decision soon...
This is an entirely new project the size of the modern world. It would require me to redo techs, units, the map etc (Basically everything). I'm not going to say I won't eventually do this.. but I don't want to start another project of this size while I still have one unfinished. After update 3 if I can get the modern world mod to a point I think is done I will consider this.
Until then I'm sticking to mini projects. That is projects I can use either the 1949 or my modern world files for and make minor changes to create a new scenario. (State of Unions mod is a good example, it uses 90% of the modern world files the only major change is the nations)
On a more pessimistic note, If alot of the issues are still there after update 3, I'll pretty much be shelving all my projects until the issues are addressed.
