    Update 4
    1846-1850

    While technically most of the world was still at war, you almost couldn’t tell from the amount of actual armed conflict that happened during this period. All told, most of the combatants were actually quite peaceful or took defensive measures. Entire continents that were ravaged by war a short time ago fell quiet, mainly because all colonial forces had already been removed from the theatre.

    In Europe, things were also much quieter than they could have been. Some reports indicated that the forces of the EU were disorganized after their failures to rapidly capture territory at the onset of the war. All told, there was really only one battle at all, and this one was just about a draw, with no sides gaining much of anything except perhaps a broken treasury and a booming coffin business.

    Spoiler Battles :

    After waiting for an invasion that never came, the joint forces of Al-Andalus and France and Paris went on the counterattack. Their goal was to deal a death blow to the traitorous Lusitanians. The battle was quite close, but ultimately they were repelled at the borders and no gain was made whatsoever.




    Spoiler Events :

    Sultanate of Lusitania: Our eldest scholars have collaborated on an effort to collect, record, and preserve all of our oral traditions and unwritten literature. They require storage space for pottery, stone tablets and other artifacts, as well as special repositories within our cities. To complete this quest, you must build Libraries in all your provinces for 2 IC each.

    • Option 1: Our libraries with the largest repository of classic literature receives a research bonus - 10 IC science bonus
    • Option 2: Discover and decipher lost knowledge from within some of the literature - Receive a free Army upgrade not yet possessed
    • Option 3: Receive a Naval Technology not yet possessed

    ---

    A miracle performed at the city wall in Mexico is attracting pilgrims from far and wide.

    • Option 1: The tourism will enhance city revenue - gain a one-off bonus of 10 IC
    • Option 2: We should hire and train some of the pilgrims as missionaries - spend 5 IC and 25% chance of a stability increase.

    ---

    Angolan horticulturists have harnessed rare local resources to produce remedies.

    • Option 1: Establish internal trade with the locals for these rare commodities - gain a one-off bonus of 10 IC
    • Option 2: Fund efforts to increase production without endangering the natural resources that produce them - build up to 5 factories at 1 IC each (if not at maximum)

    ---

    The beloved Brazilian leader’s son has been shot! The public and leaders family mourns the loss.

    Immediate Effect: There is nothing we can do except mourn the loss - 50% chance of a stability drop in capital

    ---

    A retiring naval captain has pledged his expertise to assist the Drydock located in Madras

    • Option 1: The reputation boost should enhance revenues - gain a one-off bonus of 10 IC
    • Option 2: We should fund an effort to translate his experience into a format that can be passed on to future generations - new naval units cost only 3 IC this turn


    Spoiler Current Stats :

    A couple of Items left out of the update:

    1. Experience. I forgot to update the experience on the stats page before making the image. I really don’t feel like making that image again, so the following nations have 10% experience:

    • Al-Andalus
    • British Empire
    • Sultanate of Lusitania
    • French Algerian Republic
    • France and Paris

    2. I also forgot to include culture points for the games. I’ll make a note of that tomorrow and add them to the stats behind the scenes.

    My bad - I put them in Peking by mistake. I'll fix it.

    EDIT: I fixed the map and stats on my end. It didn't change the number of IC you have, and I'll probably not update the map unless I have more changes. You now have 5 factories in Peking, and 2 in Shanxi.

    Thanks. Yeah, the only reason is toget provinces to core capacity asap. Can't do that with excess factories in my capital.

    China
    6 IC into 3 Factories in Shanxi.


    Core next turn! Looks like it'll be the first one in the game as well.

    Metis 11 IC((Including 1 IC gift from Seron for winning World Cup))
    2 IC into 1 factory in Yukon
    6 IC into 3 factories in Midwest
    3 IC expansion in Ontario focused in the West.

    Technically, I'll be second, you'll be third. Reason: I only have to build one.

    They did?

    FUUUUUUU-

    Edit: I don't see a core? :confused:

    Edit2: you need to invest IC to make it a core. Nobody has one as of yet.
