[QUOTE=Sobotnik;34864342]Playing as the USA in Victoria 2. I banned slavery in 1866, and 20 years on in 1886 24% of the population (Including former slaves) wants slavery legal again. How do I amend this?[/QUOTE] Give the South independence. That figure'll drop drastically.
It's 1899 as the USA again. My economic powerhouse is bankrupting all the other nations, and I can only keep up demand for goods by constant fort and railway building. 40% of my population are factory workers and I consume 90% of the worlds coal, I've lent all my banks money away and everybody minus me is bankrupt. But I did badly in a war against revolution ruined Mexico. I literally used numbers to stop them.
I like how increbily easy it is to put the world economy into utter ruins without even trying. It always got to me as a bit gamey thing to do.

Also, I CAN'T BUILD ANY MORE TROOPS, NOTHING AND NO ONE ARE PRODUCING WEAPONS!

Shit shit shit. It's 1901, my economy has just gone plain out silly and exploded. When I researched Integral rail network every province had it under construction by 1899. 40% of my population works in factories. Furthermore I supressed the pro-slavery movement. As a result it went from 30% to 15% pro-slavery, but then 900 rebel bridges of confederates, communists, anarchists and reactionaries are waiting in reserves and now my political system in the country polarised like fuck. The entirety of Hawaii got filled with Russian immigrants. At the current rate, the entire fucking mess of a system is going to implode in 11 years.
Yeah, that's the United States of America alright.

In EU3 I want to reunificate Italy, which province should I take?

1904. 300 brigades of Anarcho-Liberals rose in revolt. I have 90 brigades mobilised. Fuck.

About to play my very first game on EU3 as France. Any advice?
You are basically the most powerful nation worldwide, France was pretty kickass at that time.
[QUOTE=junker|154;34935599]You are basically the most powerful nation worldwide, France was pretty kickass at that time.[/QUOTE] Exactly why I'm playing as them. I'm bound to make horribly misguided or inefficient decisions. My only worry is that the insurance of power that would allow me to get away with that will only last so long.
[QUOTE=Hidole555;34935504]About to play my very first game on EU3 as France. Any advice?[/QUOTE] Before you start time, ally as many as your vassals as possible. then: Declare war on Burgundy on day 1 and nuke their starting army with yours, while producing troops at ever one of your core provinces. You can usually defeat Burgundy before the HRE Emperor arrives, then you can just attrition the hell out of the HRE armies into a white peace. From there, you can either declare war on England, Brittany, or Provence. For England, take all their provinces on the mainland, and nuke any army that lands. Keep their war exhaustion high enough, and they'll give you the provinces. Alternatively, demand on of the English non-cores, so you can peace, then invade the island itself after. For Brittany, I personally like to annex them with 1 war, but if you have high infamy, take 1/2/3 of their provinces, then vassalize them. For Provence, just invade the Italians. Overall strategy as France...Expand, a lot. Or, you could try to vassalize the HRE electors, and get France as HRE's emperor. Then everything becomes retardedly easy. Do note, beware of the following: Burgundy if you destroy them asap, Austria (if they expand into Italy or becomes HRE's emperor), England (if you allow them to win the early wars), and Spain if you don't ally them. Bohemia usually doesn't become a pain due to their shitty economy. My strategy's result: [img]http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s139/angus725/eu3game2012-02-1919-18-25-20.png[/img] Notice that I have vassalized about 3/4 of Germany. You can diplo-vassal if you use your prestige well.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping more for stuff I should [B]not[/B] do, but this is great. Thank you.
Playing EU3 has made me realize the AI can pull some BS moves. Tangu declares war on me with a regency council.
It's more annoying when the AI randomly pulls large armies out of their ass. In the French game I had, the English would always raise countless armies every single time I completely obliterate their main force. Sometimes I notice the English recruiting mercenaries more often than not. I wish the AI would put inflation and deficits into consideration. The fact they always get loans without any problems is just plain ridiculous and outright unfair. [QUOTE=Angus725;34935683]Before you start time, ally as many as your vassals as possible. then:[/QUOTE]Personally I wouldn't go with this step. If you're not careful you could risk having your vassals annexed by the enemy during times of war. What I like to do is simply draw them into my sphere of influence for the extra boost in diplomacy(plays a large role in diplo-annexing).
Well, I conquered Dai Nam, expanded into South India, and just inherited Oman (who had conquered the majority of their neighbors) What I don't like however, is the fact that I can't inherit their technology, but I can still build guns and cannons at their area.

The inflation system is...annoying. Vassals wise, I like to keep vassals allied as they can siege the enemies' provinces for you while you take on the enemies' main armies and utterly destroy them. When you have 30+ vassals, they can make quite the army too. Talking so much EU3 makes me want to actually finish that French game, I stopped at around 1675, since there was few places left to take over... Rest of the world at that time: [img]http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s139/angus725/eu3game2012-02-1919-18-38-43.png[/img] Yes, I know it's a repost.

If you're playing as Rome or one of the provinces of northern Italy, you might want to consider becoming an Imperial power for protection, as well as so the Emperor doesn't fucking invade you first chance he gets.
how is this game compared to skyrim?

Hell yes!
