User interface tips & tricks[edit]

  • Lower right corner of counter shows yellow for disorganized and red for out of supply (or fuel).
  • Drag and drop deployment into the OOB editor
  • You can scroll the map by holding down the middle mousebutton.
  • You can set continuous orders to start at a later date, instead of just immediately.
  • Mouseover your flag (upper left corner) to see all modifiers.
  • Shift-F is new hotkey for Find Province.
  • You can set the victory conditions for all three factions at the start of a game.
  • There is a new setting available that will be useful sometimes. if you change debug_saves in settings.txt to a number (1 for every month. 0 means off) it will automatically create saves that don't get overwritten by newer ones like regular autosaves. useful if you want a record of a long game, although it uses quite a lot of disk space with all those saves so mostly useful for AAR writers and modders.

Common questions[edit]

How to reduce neutrality?[edit]

FtM removed the ability to directly reduce neutrality. To reduce neutrality now:

  • Increase threat on bordering countries.
  • Appoint ministers that reduce neutrality.

How to remove the fractured govt. modifier?[edit]

It's due to parties wanting cabinet seats. Check the popularity graph on the politics screen ( the tooltip will note how many cabinet positions are desired by each party) and assign ministers as needed.
