you're a true parody of communism
There, now I only need to wait for Leoreth to fix the UHV crashes and get to the bottom of PinkPallin's and Enyavar's savegames' issues.
Anyone have any last minute suggestions before the official release? I'm curious if collapsing from foreign instability is as pervasive a problem here as it is in DoC. I did come close in one game but managed to pull through. Perhaps the "free" Golden Ages are sufficient to keep civs a bit more stable than they are in DoC.
Leoreth made a big change to the foreign instability formula so I don't know if it's even a pervasive problem in DoC anymore.
I know, that's why I'm asking. I'm wondering if I should go ahead and copy that change.
Oh. Your phrasing made me think you didn't know about it.
Hey, I just won a Monarch Russia game - with only 5 Friendly Communist nations instead of 6.
That was really weird. England and US were friendly even before they reached Central Planning by themselves. I then gifted techs (towards CP) and used Great Statespeople to align Germany, Canada, Italy, Japan and Turkey. My spies then switched these nations into central planned ones, but Germany and Italy remained only pleased. My next planned step was to retreat from Vienna so the borders issue would stop with Italy and Germany; and also complete the switch with Turkey and if they also were impossible to get Friendly, convert Mexico. So: England, USA, Canada and Japan were socialist friendlies, and after turning, I had won. The diplomatic stance of both Germany and Italy didn't go up either.
The problem is not necessarily in the Sunset module, but I report it only here. Could be undocumented convenience (2 Pleased nations = 1 Friendly, that should be a thing) or counting Canada twice because it is vassal to Germany, or something else?
By the way, do you already have a formula for Foreign Stability? In this game I'm posting, I have 5 Friendly, 5 Pleased, 4 Cautious, 4 Annoyed civilizations... no one is angry, but foreign stabiltity is at -2. I know all the details how this is calculated, but I'm hoping for a change in that formula either by Leo or you.
