The July Revolution in 1830 led to the overthrow of Charles X by the citizens of France. Louis Philippe I became 'the King of the French' in the July Monarchy on the 7th of August in 1830.

Louis Philippe thought that this was a similar situation like when Napoleon was the ruler of France and now it would be his chance to go down in history as a brilliant strategist and as the one who brought the citizens of the European kingdoms to power.

The situation of France was great. They had occupied northern Algeria and also had some colonies in America. Now, it was time to regain rightful French land and to overthrow the European monarchies.

EPISODE 1 - "OPÉRATION RECONQUÊTE DU NORD" (1)

From 1830 to 1836, Louis reorganized the economy and increased the welfare in his country. Louis also brought back the "Grande Armée" and structured it like under the rule of Napoleon.

 

On the 1st of January in 1836, Louis sent French diplomats to the United Kingdom, Spain, Austria and to the Russian Empire.

Their objective was to improve the diplomatic relations between France and these countries. That was something very important for Louis' plans.

 

The Netherlands and Luxemburg were part of the First French Empire from 1805 to 1815, and Belgium even from 1795 to 1815. In Louis' eyes they should get French again, starting with Belgium.

On the 29th of January in 1836, Louis gave his good friend and talented general Bertrand Clausel the supreme command over the "Opération Reconquête du Nord".

 

The French troops were ready soon. Bertrand's 10,500 troops strong brigade was divided into three regiments.

France declared war on Belgium on the 10th of August.

 

The first regiment under Colonel Léon Pétin conquered the city Bruges in north west Belgium. The second and main regiment under General Bertrand Clausel took the city of Namur and the third regiment under Colonel Alain Clausel advanced through the Ardennes and took the important city of Liége.

The French attacks were successful with some losses. Now, Bertrand ordered the first and second regiment to besiege and capture the Belgian capital Brussels. The third regiment divided itself and captured the citys of Genk and Malmedy.

The French invasion was successful and Belgium surrendered just after 3 months.

Many Belgian citizens were happy to be a part of France again, but of course some people were angry, especially the former powerful people of Belgium, because they lost the sovereignty of their country.

EPISODE 2 - "OPÉRATION RECONQUÊTE DU NORD" (2)

Bertrand prepared over 13'000 troops and sent them to the border of the Netherlands and Luxemburg.

France declared war on the Natherlands and to the Dutch vassal Luxemburg on the 24th of March in 1838.

1852634633_Screenshot_20190131-173259_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.54b77f6e3df20301627a965f4660c80a.jpg

Two regiments under Colonel Léon Pétin and Alain Rouge attacked the citys Middelburg and Breda. Two other regiments conquered the city of Eindhoven with much Dutch resistance. Another regiment under the command of Bertrand attacked the city of Luxembourg from the north west and from the south.

 

The attacks were successful but the two regiments that attacked Eindhoven were nearly completely destroyed and both Colonels were dead.

Bertrand sent his regiment north to support the war against the Netherlands and Léon's regiment attacked the city of Rotterdam. Alain's regiment attacked Arnheim to replace the two destroyed regiments.

 

The attacks were successful, so Léon continued with attacking Amsterdam and Utrecht with each a half regiment. Alain advanced north and captured the citys Leeuwarden, Zwolle and Groningen.

Meanwhile, the French colony in South America had to defend against the attacking Dutch troops from the west.

A regiment under Alexandre Plateau managed to push back the enemy troops and to advance into their territory.

The citys Wageningen, Kabalebo and Alalapadi were captured easily.

 

The Netherlands and Luxemburg signed the Peace Treaty of Amsterdam on the 11th of September in 1838.

Louis decided to leave the northern part of the Netherlands, because not many French lived there and France wasn't interested in this rebelious region. But Louis let a puppet government come to power, so he still had power there.

Léon Pétin was born in 1801 in Samur. He went on a special military school in Samur for future colonels. Léon has a wife and a daughter.

EPISODE 3 - THE FRENCH-SARDINIAN WAR

Louis was very happy about the successful campaign against the north and he decided to continue with Sardinia.

 

Again, Louis gave Bertrand Clausel the command over the "Brigade Sarde" with about 13'000 troops. France declared war on the 13th of July.

Bertrand's plan was to attack the city of Besançon with one regiment and attacking the Sardinian capital Turin with two regiments under his command. Bertrand's brother Alain captured the city Nice with another regiment.

The first attacks were successful but thousands French soldiers died.

The French troops advanced deeper into enemy territory, but Alain's attack on Savona failed. Alain was killed with his whole regiment. This was a big shock for Bertrand, but he had to continue.

 

Unexpectedly, the biggest part of the Sardinian army was stationed in Savona and Bertrand decided to focus all regiments on Savona and attacking the Sardinian citys in the east with only one Battalion.

Meanwhile, the French regiment under Léon Pétin had to defend Corsica against the attacking Sardinian troops from the south.

Léon launched an counterattack on the 25th of January in 1840 and he slowly managed to capture important citys and harbours of Sardinia.

 

Sardinia surrendered after hard fights on the 22nd of March in 1840.

1566676140_Screenshot_20190201-152124_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.0eff876d1eb3d4c60f72b88e9db6c6cd.jpg

Their territory got fully occupied by France.

 

France had good relations to the great powers of Europe, except for the Ottoman Empire and Prussia.

Louis knew, that something big is going to happen soon.

Alain Clausel

Alain Clausel was the brother of Bertrand Clausel. He was born in 1797 and also went to the Special Military School of Saint-Cyr in Britanny. He became a colonel and fought with his brother in many wars. Alain died in September 1839 in the Battle of Savona against Sardinia.

EPISODE 4 - THE FRENCH-SWISS WAR

France had very good relations to the Austrian Empire and Louis received an information from the Austrian Empire, that they are at war with the Ottoman Empire. Louis didn't want that the Ottoman Empire had more influence in Europe, but Louis decided not to join this war at first.

1481138259_Screenshot_20190201-152853_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.ee81eaeb7ce0e5facf3bf6b97c954d74.jpg

 

His plan was to invade Switzerland first, so he ordered his general Henri Marques to mobilize 2 brigades (18'500 troops).

On the 31st of October in 1841, a brigade from the north west launched an successful attack on important cities, like Geneva, Basel and Zürich. Another brigade invaded the Swiss cantons Valais and Tessin from the south.

The three southern regiments had some problems advancing through the Alps, but they were still able to be quick.

 

Then, Henri ordered four regiments to cross the river Aare and capture the Swiss capital Bern. Two other regiments invaded the eastern cantons Grisons and Thurgau.

Switzerland capitulated on the 26th of December in 1841.

The Ottomans were able to conquer more and more land of the Austrian Empire.

Louis decided to intervene and ordered Henri to attack the African territory of the Ottoman Empire.

Two French brigades (17'000 troops) under Henri Marques crossed the border to the Ottoman Empire on the 30th of October in 1842 and captured the city Bizerte.

The vassals of the Ottoman Empire declared war on France on the 27 of November.

EPISODE 5 - HOT WAR

The city Tunis fell just in a few days and France was able to advance quickly towards Tripolis.

The French troops captured the important city Tripolis and Henri ordered the troops to move on and capture the important city Tripolis.

Meanwhile the Austrian Empier was able to hold back the Ottomans with financial help of France.

Austria stationed their troops at good defended positions.

 

The French campaign against the Ottoman Empire was doing very good, but the French troops near the Sahara Desert got small problems with the temperature.

Louis decided to land on the mainland of the Ottoman Empire and ordered Henri to prepare their troops.

 

Henri ordered a landing on the bad defended Ottoman city Ioannina with a brigade with over 10'000 well trained troops.

Louis received a surprising war declaration of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies on the 21st of January in 1844.

EPISODE 6 - BATTLES IN THE BALKAN

Henri ordered his brigade that landed in Ioannia to advance north and capture important cities like Tirana and Tessaloniki.

1776643708_Screenshot_20190201-154307_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.589f4ad3020cf524dc5676a8ae27ddb5.jpg

The French troops had to advance through the Balkan Mountain Range and through dense forest, but they still tried to advance quickly.

 

Now, the French troops split themself and marched towards Istanbul and the Austrian mainland.

1475256505_Screenshot_20190201-154454_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.9ae18aa81bea23ffac63dba86b47c0e1.jpg

Henri also ordered 1500 troops to attack Montenegro on the 15th of April in 1844, but the invasion failed.

 

Meanwhile, the tuberculosis began to spread in south Europe and affected French territory.

2122034189_Screenshot_20190201-154502_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.40da4e95c5b86c67c897d2f2eab64743.jpg

 

Many attacks failed and more and more French soldiers died in terrifying battles.

899639022_Screenshot_20190201-154601_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.b4f9fe7f10de01ac21f6270214b3d4c2.jpg

The Ottomans came into a stalemate with the French troops in west Balkan and landed in Durres.

 

Within months the Ottoman troops were able to destroy the whole French brigade and to recapture all their land in the Balkan.

2121404072_Screenshot_20190201-154904_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.7e0fd01f0096d4e37126526d84a9a9c1.jpg

Henri escaped through Austria and travelled to Paris to meet Louis.

 

On the 30th of August in 1844, Prussia declared war on France.

The message was shocking and Louis was horrified. Louis didn't expect such a big war, but he ordered Betrand Clausel to prepare an army and to defend the French territory.

Now Louis feared that other countries could also declare war on France, why he strengthened the diplomatic relations with many other big countries.

      “And so it was the the Dawn of an Era, where as some nations may find there place in the sun, others would simply fall into darkness”
      Scenarios and Mods involving the famous 1830~ start date are pretty common, but even so, I wanted to try my hand at it. Being sincere, I’m posting this W.I.P since I’ve already lost all my progress once, and recently half of it too, so for it to not be another dead project, I wanted to at least show it, and search for some help on the forum.
      Anyway, getting back on track, one of the objectives of this so called mod was to “cover” the number of uncolonized/neutral provinces that appeared on most Victorian Age scenarios, and so with this, one could prevent the “Implausable colonizers”, (such as having early Qing colonies on the coast of Africa, or vice-versa, provinces that should be colonized being barren of any owner until really late on the game, such as provinces on the middle of North America), but most importantly, to give the possibility to the player to play as obscure but historical states or people’s which weren’t represented already on the game, this counts specially for regions such as Southern Africa, the Patagonian region, the Caucasus, Indonesia, Central Asia, etc.  
      So with this in mind, the player has more options on how to play the game, changing a little bit the structure for colonization, etc.
      THE WORLD MAP SO FAR:

      *Keep in mind, a lot of things are subject to change*
      Miscellaneous Pics: 











      Implemented Features:
      -New flags for various nations -270+ New Nations (and counting!) -Alternative flags and name for different ideologies of a nation (Example: "Tigray" being "Lordship of Tigray" as a monarchy or the "Tigray People's Democratic Republic" with the socialist ideology). More and revamped formable nations. Planned Features: 
      More nations (since there's still incomplete parts of the world such as India or Central Africa). A new type of ideology: "traditional state", specially designed for states which aren't tribal, but still have a chiefdom type of organization. Changes on the name of some things: "Vassal state" to "Satellite State", etc. Change the name of "Diseases", to represent "Situations", depending on the year. (Ex: "minor nationalist uprising" starting on 1844 or  "medium labour strike", etc). More Scenarios [ *Just ideas, probably not all of them* ]: "The revolutions of 1848", "The Crimean War(1853)", "1857", "1860", "Winds of Unification: 1865", " La Belle Époque (1871)", "1879", "The Great Scramble(1884)", "Sino-Japanese war: 1894", "1900", "Administrative divisions of 1900", "Moroccan Crisis: 1905". [There could be scenerios up to 1939, but with this ideas is probably more than enough for now]. New UI. More provinces and , wishfully, a new map background. Events (not for all scenarios though). Thanks for reading all of this.
      PD: If anyone wants to help with this project, contact me through this account.

      Okay, a bit of context on this post. I had some spare time today to add a few events to the Victorian Era scenario. And I added one event for the Taiping Rebellion to fire off, as you can see in this picture below. I added an option where you can play as the Taiping Kingdom, and I made it possible by having the Qing "form" the Taiping Kingdom and re-adding the Qing as an AI player. After testing it by playing as the Qing, while for the most part worked, the pictures for the Qing Emperor and Hong become swapped, imagine the profiles for both the Qing Emperor and the Taiping Ruler but reversed. I am not sure if I can call this a win and now possible to swap as factions in the game or not or find a way to fix the picture problem. If you have suggestions, leave a comment below!     (Posted two more pics of this for more context)
