A World War I scenario | Determining the starting military of each country and their fronts | |

Recommended Posts

Hi! I've recently started working on a WW1 scenario,and I plan on making it as realistic as possible. There will be somewhat realistic economy of each country I could find resources for,mobilization numbers,civilian satisfaction,rebelliousness,borders and government types. Each important country (and some smaller ones) will have unique events,which will be divided into economic and national events (HoI4,please don`t sue me). These events will then further be divided into three paths: historical, alternative #1 (leftist and center), alternative #2 (rightist and center).

Current progress field: events for Austria-Hungary: historical path

Hello @Commieslav! 

If I had to recommend some sites, those would be this ones:

http://w.ethnia.org/?SL=en 

https://www.worldstatesmen.org/

From personal experience, the two sites are more than useful for things as leaders, political entities, ethnicities, administrative divisions and similar stuff.

For flags and related vexillological topics, https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/ , is always a good start. I also reccommend searching in other vexillology sites for guidance (http://www.vexilla-mundi.com/http://www.loeser.us/flags/;https://www.reddit.com/r/vexillology/http://www.vexillographia.ru/ind_eng.htm (Russian and English), and http://www.rbvex.it/ (Italian)), since they sometimes have information unique to them; or flags in better quality. Semi related, but http://hubert-herald.nl/ could also prove itself useful when designing new flags, which include coats of arms.

Wikipedia seems like another obvious start, and Wikimedia (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), proves itself to be useful when searching for specific topics (also useful for more HD flags).

Appart from Ethnia.org, for leaders (specifically monarchies), https://www.royalark.net/index.html is a good start.

Maps and general borders are a little bit more tricky;  https://www.zum.de/whkmla/histatlas/haindex.html is a simple (and old) site,but it gives a general idea of borders and has a great amount of external links and bibliography to guide oneself through one's project. The same goes for https://www.euratlas.com/ and https://omniatlas.com/ (Though the latter seems more practical).

Mapping youtube channels have also seemed useful for me in the past: https://www.youtube.com/c/OllieBye/videos ; https://www.youtube.com/c/EmperorTigerstar/videos ; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoUOxixxnTi_Po8eSbfgFGQ/videos ; https://www.youtube.com/c/KayraAtakanQırımXanı/videos ; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCALevyiz56wJBIHZFmw_k5A/videos; etc. All at the least help one visualize the movement of somethings in a moving map. Talking about youtube, and the specific topic of WWI, I should also recommend taking a look at https://www.youtube.com/user/TheGreatWar .

For the specific topic of the Middle East, maye this ones could be useful: https://www.houshamadyan.org/mapottomanempire.htmlhttps://gulf2000.columbia.edu/maps.shtmlhttp://www.irancarto.cnrs.fr/ ; https://www.wdl.org/en/item/18813/ ; https://joshuaproject.net/clusters/111 [Note: Joshua project is more useful for talking about people and the area that they inhabit , since it groups them by groups; but the "christian %" isn't much useful for your scenario];  https://sites.google.com/site/sauditribes/ ; https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/assets/4232359/saudi_arabia_early_1900s.gif ( A more "HD" version of one of many "Joaquín de Salas Vara del Rey" maps. Try searching for some of his stuff; most of it it's lost to time or in low quality now, but you may get one of the good ones from out there); https://recortesdeorientemedio.com/mapas-de-oriente-medio/ (in spanish); http://discoversinai.net/english/map-of-bedouin-tribes-egypt/8610 (Specific to the Sinai Penninsula).

For now, that's all I can remember that could be helpful to you. I hope that this information may be useful to your work, and I wish you the best of luck!

If I find anymore information or sources, I'll try to post them.

Thank you! I will use these sources to their full potential. Meanwhile I found something that I'll specify in the "update" (original post edit). I might also publish this one,at first I didn't want to because a lot of ww1 scenarios already exist,but I'll try to make this more than just a scenario 🙂

Hello people following this topic! I ask for your help yet again.

When adding pictures for leaders,do I have to type in the picture link into the "Picture:" tab or do I need to download the picture and put the file in the tab?

Also,map pictures coming soon.

Unfortunately the leaders may not be added,because the AoH2 keyboard on Android does not have the "/" sign which is needed for links. I cannot transfer the app to my PC and work from there,because in order to do that,I`d have to utilize Bluestacks,which my pc can`t handle due to it being old.

I`ll see what else I can do.

Hello people! Here some images of the world map as of right now. This is probably the final version:Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-19-25-237_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.06990e3480ea22e0b5b15e26d497359d.jpg

Notice how only the eastern half of Hejaz is a country (since the western part of Hejaz was in the official Ottoman borders). The south remains uncolonized since the majority of sources and maps with Nejd have these borders.Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-20-44-312_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.e894a8a4b9dfa29a0e7c7475d4b61f27.jpgI included Afghanistan, Nepal and Bhutan in British India, because they were British protectorates. Instead of usual Thailand there's the Rattanakosin Kingdom,Mongolia is the Bogd Khanate and Tibet is independent (it was de facto independent,just like Mongolia),the remnants of French India are there,with the cities of Pondichéry,Yanaon and Chandernagor (they might not correspond perfectly,but it is what it is). Germany has Qingdao and Philippines are part of the USA.Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-20-53-928_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.c353e9fb193011ce14743a9e6984bd6e.jpgIf you have a sharp eye,you may notice another de facto state,the Sultanate of Aussa. Britain and France have some parts of to-be Italian North and East Africa (British Somaliland and parts of Libya).Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-21-04-043_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.6c95711f7ce10115e6aeaa8d2cc95512.jpgUnion of South Africa is here because they were a dominion.Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-21-54-585_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.89f1d97bb3052e8307fa6d2bce075802.jpg Brighter colored Mexico are the rebels (Zapatists and such) and the rebels (as a civ) are 3rd party rebels,I couldn't make them as another Mexico. The USA has Panama,Honduras, Nicaragua,Cuba,Haiti, Dominican Republic because they were their protectorates in 1913.Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-21-31-314_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.6443dd4710e9cb33eff38732580b0fd3.jpgCanada and Newfoundland are independent because dominions.Screenshot_2020-11-26-10-22-40-463_age_of.civilizations2.jakowski.lukasz.thumb.jpg.d5ceb23745652ae3689aabe89afc0a07.jpgBritish Malaya,Dutch East Indies,German New Guinea and French Indochina are all here. NZ and Australia are independent because they were also dominions.

El sur permanece sin colonizar ya que la mayoría de las fuentes y mapas con Nejd tienen estas fronteras.

I think it is much better if you add Afghanistan, Bhutan and Nepal as vassal states, as well as the British Raj and other colonies

I could do that with their protectorates,but the Raj isn't becoming a vassal. The Raj had it's first representative government after WW1.

looks great, the only gripe i have is that Afghanistan is under britain in that map, when in reality they only accepted british suzerainty

I decided to give Afghanistan,Nepal and Bhutan all to Britain, because they were British protectorates (technically under their rule,and Afghanistan broke free from the crown in 1919). About the Antilles, that's a bit weird,since the maps I used showed the countries I gave to the US as their protectorates in 1914 and 1913. I'll look more into CA and the Antilles,thanks for pointing it out!

Hello everyone. I'm sad to announce the official death of this scenario. Unfortunately none of the custom civs I made in the editor got saved,and they are nowhere to be found in the files,which prevents me from adding trustworthy and accurate flags, therefore making it impossible to make the majority of alternative events. Until I find a way to successfully port the files to my pc and access them (app got ported,the files didn't),make a backup file and then reset everything or until AoH2 somehow decides to be a good game,this scenario is dead.

I did actually. And MT Manager is exactly what I'm using to organize and access the game files. The thing is,when I enter the civilization_editor folder, it's empty. Although I've made custom civs such as Szeklerland,German Bohemia and German Sudetenland.

I've done that multiple times. Extracted it to MTM itself and later into a .rar archive on my pc. None worked. I might know what the problem is,and if it is actually what I think it is, I'd have to re-install the game and start from scratch.

Bumping this as spam bots post in scenarios-offtopic from some reason.

Also,I might release a beta of the scenario with one incomplete (guess why)  event for A-H (federalization-United States of Greater Austria). It still needs German Bohemia,German Sudet,German Austria,east and west Galicia, Vojvodina, a monarchist Slovakia and a proper flag for Szeklerland.

      Fully fledged WWI scenario
      No events
      If you want events, I am working on a mod that includes events, new leaders, new countries, and more
       
       
      I tried my best at recreating the map region for region, but due to the shapes of the provinces, some areas like Italian Libya and Ottoman Hejaz are not 100% accurate.
      Also don't mind the leaders, AoHII seems to think Mussolini is the king of Italy, I can't fix that for the scenario, but for the mod I will.
      Remember to set the game speed to 50%, or you'll be in 1918 in 8 turns
      Also remember to MAKE THE WEIMAR REPUBLIC IMPOSSIBLE TO FORM AS GERMANY
      To do this, go to the AoHII main menu, go to "Editor", "Map Editor", "Map: Earth | 4269 Provinces", scroll down to "Formable Civilizations", Search for "Weimar Republic", and then remove the German Empire from the list of civilizations that can create it and/or give the Weimar Republic impossible amounts of land that the AI could never hope to obtain. Otherwise the AI will always form the Weimar Republic.

      Here's the Google Drive link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1glpTlFJ6ra745O1nbYL_boVx7ZeFL2QF/view?usp=sharing
      To install on Windows PC,  Select the download button in the top right of the google drive page, extract the files, copy or cut the folder from File Explorer, go to Windows (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Steam > SteamApps > Common > AoCII > Map > Earth > scenarios
      Simply paste the folder into the scenarios folder, and that's it.
      There may be things that I need to update, so check back once in a while if you care
      The Discord server for the mod is https://discord.gg/tFU7YUzmdF
      If there are any issues, please let me know.

      This mod will be based almost entirely on the First World War, where maps of the main causes will be placed, and a map, with many events. I have to clarify that this mod will be for android, and I do not know if I can do it for PC and that this post will be to announce it for now, because I will have to fix my cell phone and I will have to wait. I think I'll still do it 1 month, while doing the event trees, etc. (it's a mod, not a map)
       
      major events of 1910
      • Fall of the republic in Portugal (can cause a civil war).
