Playing China too? Military upgrades seem to be slow. I did get Ironcladed Sailing Ships, which are a big step up from the junks. My beef at the moment is that the French are invading my annexed territory in Tonkin. I'd like to kick their pantalon rouge-ed fannies out but I have no way to forge a ca...

I might add that if I wanted to make the simulation REALLY like 19th Century China, I would -increase- dissatisfaction in any province I build a factory or a railroad. Railroads especially faced opposition from peasants, because 1). the spoiled the feng shui of an area, and 2). they broke the rice b...

- I presume you mean contentment, not National Morale? If you are not in a war that should revert towards 100 over time in any case, unless there is a Chinese event chain that I've missed (very likely as my knowledge of 19C Chinese history is not far over zero)

Yes, I did mean National Morale.

Thank you for your quick response. The populace is giving me a 97% approval rate, according to the Assets Balance. And having built all rice farms save two at this point, among other agricultural developments, everyone in the Middle Kingdom should have plenty to eat.

Morale and China

I am playing China, and have reached May 1870. Yes, I read the previous posts on this endeavor, and I'm aware this is something of an "alternate reality 19th Century China" as right now I have built an impressive network of rails when China historically didn't build its first rail line until 1872.

Ending the Taiping Rebellion?

I am playing China, and have made my way to 1868. Depite the fact I retake every Taiping Heavenly Kingdom space after they capture it, their morale nver seems to go below 62, while mine is 78 and falling. There always seem to be more Taipings, which makes the war into an endless exercise in Wack-A-M...

Can anyone explain what the dial in between ACTIVE NATION, DIPLOMATS, NATIONAL MORALE, AND PRESTIGE POINTS and AVAILABLE ASSETS & LEDGER BUTTONS on the main map means? There is nothing in the Manual about it. In my game, it used to run all the way over to the right but now it's moving towards the re...

Unable to Start

I have recently converted by machine to Windows 7 from XP/SP 2. Now WW1G 1.08P will not start, but reaches "Initializing" and freezes. Using the XP/SP 2 Compatibility Mode the startup refuses to recognize the serial number. Help. I want to keep playing this game.

I did look in the dipolmatic window; there was no mention of the Angolan regions. I was wondering if that only applied to national territory, that I would get to keep the Angolan coast I paid in Belgian blood for.

Capturing Colonies

I was playing Belguim, declared war on Portugal, and completely cleared Angola of enemy units. I was hoping to claim the place for my own. Well, I make peace as the victor, and guess what - the whole of Angola reverts to Portugal! Including forts and agricultural facilities I paid for. And I could n...

That's kind of my experience too...Russia lost the Crimean War, I suspect for logistical reasons most Western history has shortchanged (this was a country with no railroads and huge distances). Yet in PoN Russian armies come across like Marshall Zhukov's, real stomping machines, and they not only sh...

Thing is, I want a more grand name for the place - "Leopoldville" or the like. -- Is it possible to change the names of cities on the playing map? I replaced the name in the "VGN/includes" file ...

I'm sure someone has asked this before, but I cannot find it...how does one get an Exploration Party if the presiquite is always, "have party in an adjecent region?" How does one start? My game keeps telling me, "not enough elements with the correct attribute."

I'm still trying to figure out how to do all that. I just started with the system.

Windows 7 makes me think about of the saying about living in India: you hate it for a month, and then you love it forever. --I'm still on the 'hate' part.
