Norrvägen is modification is dedicated to one of the most interesting parts of the World in terms of history - Scandinavia.

Norrvägen will give you the opportunity to plunge into Scandinavian history, feel like one of the founders of the Viking Age and be the ruler of any existing state in Scandinavia at different times. It is planned to create at least 20 scenarios of different scales, whether it is the entire map, strewn with tribes and clans, or local conflicts, seasoned with events. Well, a few alternatives do not hurt.

The main feature of the mod is a new map, currently consisting of 2261 provinces. The map province template was created by me personally, drawn by hand based on data from various historical sources, and includes a fairly accurate historical and modern administrative division.
From the images below, you can see that the map includes not only Scandinavia, but also Britain, the Northern parts of Russia and Germany, as well as part of the Baltic States. These lands were added for historicity. For example, England and Baltica are present for the reason that the Vikings often organized campaigns in England and the Baltic States, which seriously affected the history of these peoples.
In addition to the typical work on the map, I will create an atmospheric soundtrack, thematic interface, and other nice "accessories" to the mod.

Innovations of mod:
 New worked map of Northern Europe (2263 provinces). There are borders for 10 centuries of history on this map;
• About 1700 cities;
 Two backgrounds: Minimalistic (main) and Realistic (alternative);
• 11 Scenarios:

- Regional Conflicts (2017);
- Great Northern War (1700) ;
- Swedish War For Independence (1521);
- Kalmar Union (1397);
- 1164;
- William The Conqueror (1066);
- New Millennium (1000);
-  Christianization Of Denmark (980);
- Rage of Normanns (850);
- The Beginning of The Viking Age;

• Great scenario "Rage of Normanns" with a lot of events;
 95 formable civilizations;
 Edited and new added terrain types;

► Gameplay innovations:
 New leaders with portraits (some of them were colored by me);
 New Ages in game timeline system;
• New Governments:

- The monarchy was divided into two forms of government: Absolute and Elective. I don't think there's much to tell.
- Chiefdom is the main ideology for the countries of the "ancient" eras. In fact, it is a collective image of various jarldoms and small tribal unions.
- Tanistri is a form of government for the Irish and Scottish clans, of which there are many in some scenarios.
- Althing is a unique form of government for Iceland. The Althing is one of the oldest parliaments in the world: at first, the word Althing meant people's meetings of the first Icelandic settlers, where various issues were resolved and future plans of the communities were discussed. Now the Althing is called the Parliament of modern Iceland.
- Theocracy - a form of government based on religious principles. It will be a unique government for the Teutonic Order, etc.

 Edited game code. For example, we added feature of changing leaders (check here).

► Other innovations:
• More than 500 new civilizations;
• UI was changed. It is still original UI but in pleasant black and white shade. Also a new font;
 Atmospheric music (40 tracks) and changed sounds.

 Pleasant Pallet of Civilizations Colours.

Hi ^^ 

Quick suggestion about the music: you could try adding some tracks from Sabaton's Swedish album (i.e. Carolus Rex),for extra energy if someone plays as the Swedish Empire ^^

It's nice to see the mod coming along,best of luck mate.

Because I am not Jakowski and I prefer finish my work to logical end.

(Not looking for an argument,just saying)

I mean,I get Paul's point. A lot of games get pre-released in an alpha or beta phase and then develop further via updates or DLCs. But then again I get your point too,which makes sense.

      Buenas días a la comunidad hispanoparlante de AoH2, si es que pueden haber días buenos todavía. Lo que traigo hoy es un escenario alternativo ambientado en el lejano oriente de comienzos del milenio 1000, justo antes de comenzar un período al que llamo las guerras civiles de la dinastía Song. Vea mi estimado lector que contiene algunas cosas de interés:
      Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WuYe98uq3WUg4cb9M0fhVCH6gubAWDMU/view
      DESOBEDIENCIA CIVIL.
      Este escenario del año 1085, sin embargo, cuenta con un ligero detalle que cambiará la experiencia del juego. Aquella fama que tiene el gran pueblo chino de disciplinado y sumiso ya no existe.
      La población sabe quién es el verdadero enemigo: TÚ. El campesinado estará menos dispuesto a aceptar ser oprimidos por un Estado imperialista, por lo que si te muestras incompetente para manejar la situación correrás el serio riesgo de caer en DESOBEDIENCIA CIVIL. 
       

       
      Dicen que el gobierno que gobierne menos buen gobierno será. Si cobras altos impuestos, eres negligente para mantener a tu población feliz y no eres capaz de entretenerla para que se no se alce, no sólo serás débil contra tus enemigos externos, sino contra tu pueblo.
      En caso de ocurrir el evento de la Desobediencia Civil habrás caído a un punto de no retorno, en el que la propia gente se volverá en contra tuya. Además de impopular, tu dinastía se volverá ilegítima a los ojos del populacho, comenzando así una infame guerra civil para derrocar tu gobierno e instaurar una república de campesinos.
       

       
      NUEVAS CIVILIZACIONES.
      Dentro Song Civil Wars he añadido algunos países necesarios para ambientar como se debe un escenario del siglo XI, principalmente vasallos y países secundarios. Serán menos de veinte, pues no quiero salirme de lo que es justo y necesario.
       

       
      EVENTOS PERSONALIZADOS.
      No sería merecedor publicar esto si no hubiesen eventos para los países protagonistas (y no tan protagonistas). He creado más de una docena de eventos personalizados, destinados a orientar la experiencia a algo más cercano a lo histórico, que al fin y al cabo era lo que quería lograr haciendo mi escenario. Los eventos personalizados están divididos en tres tipos: los de guerra, los civiles y los de gobierno.
      Por mencionar a algunos, existen eventos personalizados para la dinastía china de los Song, los rebeldes de Zhao, los vietnamitas de Viet, los camboyanos del Imperio Jemer y el reino Lavo, en Tailandia.

      If you've seen or created an event before, you'd understand the various issues behind the event text. Why can I only see part of the text in the event creator? Why did the description I just wrote get deleted when I added a trigger? Why are all the events in a different language? For many mods, these issues are common in scenarios with events. Luckily, there's a better way to display event text: event localization! Inspired by the system in Hearts of Iron IV, and originally demonstrated in The Chairman Baad Collection (rest in lack of content and peace) before being used in Norrvägen and The Second Great War, event localization alleviates all of the issues present with the standard way of event writing.
      So how do you use event localization?
      Event localization is a process that's simple for even a first-time modder.
      Go into your AoH2 directory, go to game/languages/, and open Bundle.properties. (the English language file for AoH2) Write your event's title, description (if you plan to add one), and outcomes under a tag for each piece of text. Be careful not to use the same tag for more than one event.
      Here's an example with the Turkish defensive pact event from TCBC. In this example, _t corresponds to _title, _d is for _description, and _o1 and _o2 are for _outcome1 and _outcome2 respectively. Replace each tag and description with your own, and make sure to save your changes! tur_azeripactexp_t = Defensive Pact with Azerbaijan Expiring tur_azeripactexp_d = Our agreement for mutual security with Azerbaijan is set to expire on the 16th of August. However, we have the option to renew the agreement and extend it until 2030. The only catch: both parties must agree to a renewal. What should we do? tur_azeripactexp_o1 = Appeal for a renewal. tur_azeripactexp_o2 = Let it expire.        3. In the AoH2 event creator, instead of writing your event text like you normally would, write the tags corresponding to the ones you added in
                 Bundle.properties.
      And that's it! You've just set up an event using event localization! During gameplay, if your event pops up and you see the event tags instead of your text, go into the settings and reselect your game language. This reloads the Bundle files so that your text will appear the next time you see the event.
      Now how does this solve the issues with normal event text?
      Let's go over that, shall we?
      Why can I only see part of the text in the event creator? By writing your event text in Bundle.properties, you are relieving yourself of this issue by using a text editor instead of the event creator. Unlike the event creator which doesn't let you scroll through your text, a text editor will let you see your text in full, allowing for longer descriptions and clear writing.
      Why did the description I just wrote get deleted when I added a trigger? It is frustrating to spend a few minutes writing an event description only to lose it upon adding a new trigger. But with event localization, you don't have to spend another few minutes retyping your description from the beginning. The next time you lose your description, you can simply retype the description's tag rather than the description itself, saving you some precious time in the event creator.
      Why are all the events in a different language? Ah yes, the classic "events only support one language" issue. This is probably the biggest advantage of using event localization: events can support multiple languages! Let's say that you want your event to support Turkish and English. By writing your English event text in Bundle.properties and your Turkish text in Bundle_tr.properties, players will see the event text in the correct language whether they're playing in English or Turkish. No more confusion or duplicate scenarios for each language!
      Now that you know the steps and advantages of using event localization, I hope you consider using it the next time you add events to a mod or scenario!
