    So back in July of 2020, I made a comment on RFC Europe Wonders thread about an idea of a Industrial age expansion for this mod. Does anyone had any proposals and ideas of what this Industrial age expansion of RFC Europe should look like? Then, comment here.

    Frankly, the map of Europe looks so comprehensively different after the rise and fall of Napoleon, that I think the *only* way to accurately depict a history of Europe is to end around the year 1800. The post-Congress of Vienna continental system was a whole new world: balance of power through cascading alliances, rise of nationalism, unification of Germany and Italy, rise of reactionary monarchies in Austria and Russia, decline & balkanization of former Ottoman Empire, age of imperialism and 'scramble for Africa'. It'd require a pretty comprehensively different set of game mechanics to properly represent.

    I would end the game in 1700, and make this a game focusing on the Middle Ages & Reformation. I have yet to see a reason to play past 1700.

    If anything, it would be fun to jump straight ahead to the early 20th century and give us a pre-WW1 sandbox to play in, but I can imagine the sheer # of troops you’d have to manage to simulate WW1 would kill most computers. And you’d have to find a way to weaken doom stacks to make trench warfare possible.

    I wonder if it would be possible to have defending artillery fire first at an entire attacking stack... something like that.

    Publicola and The Turk is right IMO: Anything like this would need a different mod in my opinion as well.
    Adding an Industrial era expansion to RFCE would be quite forced over the current mechanics.
    If anything, I'm thinking about reducing the turn number in the last century. You can check more about this in one of the timeline threads.
    Having said that, if anyone want to try their hands on adding something like this as a modmod to RFCE, I wouldn't mind it of course.

    Ok. Here is my idea of a propose civ for this "Industrial" expansion:


    New Civ in the Industrial Era:
    Kingdom of Greece - start in 1821 AD
    Leader: George I
    UU: Maniots (Grenadier)
    UB:?

    Kingdom of Belgium - start in 1930 AD
    Leader: Leopold II
    UU: ?
    UB:?

    New Civ in the Pre-Industrial Era:
    Kingsom of Savoy - start in 1001 AD
    Leader: Amadeus I, Victor Emanuel II
    UU: Bersagliere (Rifleman)
    UB:?


    I don't have any suggestion over UP, UHV or any UB and UU. If anyone had any ideas, please tell me.

    So my best recommendation to you, is to not bother writing plans on here, and work on it by yourself. When it is complete release it. Don't release something unfinished/something that has no work behind it.
