Map Mod - Stronger Colours

This is a mod that intensifies the colours on the BOA map. Some screenshots, with the original map first followed by the modded version: http://i1035.photobucket.com/albums/a434/dsfairhurst/BOA%20Large%20Old_zpssfuhsrsh.png http://i1035.photobucket.com/albums/a434/dsfairhurst/BOA%20Large%20New_zpsfd...

Map Mod - If You Go Down to The Woods Today...

This is a map mod for CW2 that mainly changes only the woods - toning the bright parts down somewhat. The marshes and swamps have been made rather less shiny/sparkly as well. The changes are best demonstrated by screenshots, of course. First the original, followed by the new look: http://i1035.photo...

Meanwhile, I must say that I agree with those who view this bundle as a bad move on the part of AGEOD. It's one thing to offer a single game with a huge discount in order to introduce people to the company's products, but quite another to sell almost the entire back catalogue for next to nothing. Th...

I notice that several people have indicated that they will gift games that they already own to friends. Is this simply a matter of telling the person what the key code is or do you have to do something else to avoid breaking the Steam rules?

The WON map is a very nice one, but wouldn't it be a good idea to make this game look a bit more different?

I realise that you're still in the early stages.

Changing Unit Panel Colours

Can anyone tell me how to change the background colours on the unit panels? http://i.imgur.com/fcRAIDD.png Here's a prime candidate for change. I've tried changing the Color files in Aliases, but all I've managed to achieve is to change the colour of the city names on the map.

Hey ROP Sprites, Lighten Up a Bit Will Ya!

This is a mod in two versions that lightens the sprites used in game. I only bought this game recently, and when I tried the sprite unit option I was immediately struck by how dark the sprites were. So, I've brightened them up a bit. Here are some screenshots that show the Prussians and Austrians - ...

The thing is that just being handed the Congo on a plate seems far worse to me that the difficulties that I've been experiencing. I don't mind it if a game nudges you in a certain direction, but there's a limit.

Are you playing Belgium as well? If so, how are things going for you?

How does this 'getting by event' work? Do you actually get a full colony in one fell swoop, or just the building blocks you need in order to build a colony in a certain area? And would Portugal simply be booted out?

Thanks for the replies. I have played EU2 (and For the Glory) and EU4, but not EU3, and I certainly don't like the complete sandbox games. I took an instant dislike to EU3 because it seemed to be a free for all, and I notice that Paradox has stepped back from that somewhat with EU4 (not much, but at...

Belgium 1855 - Worth Continuing?

I've now reached 1855 in my first PON game, which has mainly been aimed at learning how to play. The point I'm at now seems to be a bit of a dead end, however, because my options as Belgium are so limited. I've managed to get the economy in pretty good shape, and only some minor tinkering with this ...

Prospecting and Results

After a number of failed attempts a prospecting expedition stuck in an African province in which I had 35-percent CP, but after the eight turns were up no new resource appeared in the province. Was the expedition a failure? or are some provinces simply lacking in resources?

Good grief! Is this how it always works with AGEOD titles? As far as I know, the game was only announced in May, and now it's been released with no real run-up. I'm used to Paradox, which announces games about a year in advance with a target quarter-year, and then gives you a release date several we...

Do the reforms have any other effect than reducing militancy? Is there any difference between them?

New Officers

I can't see how you are supposed to obtain any new senior officers. Do they suddenly appear somewhere or do you have to actually do something to get them?

Please note - I've jumped into the deep end as this is my first AGEOD game, so comments such as ''It's the same as in game X'' won't help me.
