Better HRE system in-game

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I saw that the HRE system in AOC2 is very... poorly made to say at least. Being an emperor/elector basically provides no features, no buffs and the empire ultimately serves as a placeholder. To fix this I have came with a few ideas on how to make empire slightly more "attractive";

  1. Level of recognition of Imperial Authority; basically depending on Emperor's strenght, decisions, events and other factors. All HRE members, excluding emperor will have a level of acceptance and recognition towards the imperial rule. The level of recognition would be affected by; Emperor's strenght; the strenght of emperor compared to the rest of Holy Roman Empire, not only his military strenght tho, his economy, and perhaps even population would also matter, Emperor's actions; this point was inspired by the imperial system in EU4; emperor will be capable of demanding the so-called "unlawful territory" (i.e. territory in Empire controlled by non-member states), and high amounts of unlawful territory will result in Emperor's authority beggining to slowly fade away. Also the emperor would be able to grant a non-member state a privilege to hold imperial territory, which would heavily increase the opinion of Emperor by the state but would reduce imperial authority, and papal opinion (in case the territory is given to a heretic/heathen). other actions emperor could take to increase/decrease his authority would be; going on a crusade, defeating nations that posses a threat to the empire, giving out loans with low/no interest to member states in need, keeping peace in the empire, and perhaps even more. Privileges; a privilege system could be implemented. Based on the amount of privileges and the importance of received privileges, member states will lose recognition of imperial authority. For example a smaller privilege like being exempt from paying taxes to the emperor will not decrease the recognition by a lot, but strong privileges, like not having to anwser to imperial courts, will reduce it heavily. Based on the privileges the member state's opinion of emperor will increase. Events; there could be events that could increase the imperial authority level. For example if we would have a start in 1440, the emperor would have an event to support Hungary in the crusade of Varna; doing so would increase Papacy's opinion of the emperor and would grant him a special modifier that would ultimately increase the imperial authority, while declining to do so would result in Pope losing opinion of the emperor, and perhaps if the opinion is low enought excommunicating him, which could perhaps lead to a special event related to Pope-Emperor conflicts, and losing dozens of imperial recognition.
  2. Bonuses of being an emperor/elector; We could make it so emperor has some special benefits, like increased diplomatic opinion, more prestige (if such a thing like prestige would be added at all) etc. But being an emperor would also allow you to increase your influence over member states and reform the empire, which would gradually increase the bonuses emperor receives. While being an elector would first of all allow you to elect the next emperor, and would also grant several bonuses. Also richer states could offer electors trade offers, where they would want you to give them thier support in exchange for some cash. While being a prince would mean you could get emperor's help in case of being attacked or fighting infields (but that would depend on the emperor if he desires to help you or not), and would perhaps provide some additional bonuses like increased diplomatic relation with member states etc.
  3. Ability to disband the empire; while disbanding the empire would be an automatic event durning for example napoleonic wars if France has managed to capture most of the Empire, the empire could be disbanded at basically any time; to do this either emperor with high authority (with low the emperor won't be able to disband the empire, and even with high attempts to do so could cause revolts of peasants, nobles etc.) would have to decide to disband it, or another nation, controlling most of the empire, including Emperor's capital, deciding to do so. Disbanding the empire would grant both bonuses and the opposite. If emperor disbanded the empire he would lose a lot of opinion of loyal members, and it could cause revolts, but members with high desire to leave the empire would get more opinion of the emperor, and the same would happen to nations that generally had rough opinions with the empire. If another nation disbanded the empire by occupying most of it's lands they would get a high prestige modifier, and an ability to form a Germanic Confederation from the remnants of the empire, and perhaps other modifiers as well.

    • AoH3 – Help with translation of the Game
      Hi, I need your help translating the Age of History 3 to your native language.
      Your translation into your native language would be very helpful! ❤️

      In the attachment is a file with new texts in the game to be translated.

      How to make translation:

      In the file there is list of texts in the game

      The Left side is the key, do not change it!

      The right side of each line after = is the translation to your language




      ChooseAnAdvisorToHire = Choose an Advisor to Hire

      ChooseAnAdvisorToHire is the key, don't change it


      Correctly made translation:

      ChooseAnAdvisorToHire = Your translated text
      ClickToHireAnAdvisor = Your translated text
      ClickToFireAnAdvisor = Your translated text


      ShiftClickToInvestXTimes = Shift + Click to invest {0} times

      In the place of {0} will be placed number or text

      PerformTheActionXTimes = Perform the action {0,choice,0#{0} times|1#{0} time|1<{0,number,integer} times}



      For now the game is translated to: Only English language!

    • Events - Common events for every civilization in the game
      in this topic, I am interested in your ideas for events that can happen for every Civilization in the game.
      I'm also interested in Missions for every Civilization.

      Here is some example, have more than 10k army, have more than 5000 gold, build 10 buildings, recruit an Advisor, increase tax efficiency 20 times, be largest  producer of some resource in the world, unlock 5 Civilization legacies etc.

    • Land units - Ideas AoH3
      AoH3 will have different types of land units.

      In this topic we will write ideas for new land units. 


      So the AoH 3 will have new battle system.

      Representation of the battlefield in the game.

      Land units will be grouped into 3 types. Each unit will have a different recruitment cost, attack, defense, movement speed and upkeep.

      Groups determine the placement of units on the battlefield.


      Each unit can be unlocked by researching technology and then upgraded.


      Here is the current list of units with upgrades:

      First line:

      Warrior -> Light Footmen -> Heavy Infantry -> Infantry -> Line Infantry -> Modern Infantry

      Hoplites -> Spearmen -> Pikeman -> Elite Pikeman -> Musketeer -> Riflemen -> Mechanized Infantry -> Modern Mechanized Infantry

      First line side:

      Horseman -> Elite Horseman -> Cavalry -> Tank -> Modern Tank

      Second line:

      Archer -> Bowmen -> Crossbowman -> Elite Crossbowman

      Canon -> Field Cannon -> Artillery -> Modern Artillery

      Early Airplane -> Airplane -> Modern Airplane


      This is a very early version, so maybe something should be changed?

      Or maybe an idea for a new type of unit with upgrades? I'm waiting for your suggestions.
