    Hello, and welcome to the eleventh Dev Report for Spartakus.

    We showed off a lot last week so this one is a bit shorter than normal.

    Portugal Rework
    I’ve already pointed out previously I am reworking Portugal a bit and finishing up some odds and ends. So far I have shown off decisions, and I have also teased the reworked Civil War recovery focus tree.

    First off, here are both of the political screens for the two Portugal’s:

    [​IMG]

    (Republic)

    [​IMG]

    (Monarchy)

    For the Republic, they will be receiving a new political focus section for the democratic socialists and similarly, another political route. A large base of the revolutionaries are anarchists, and as a result the Portuguese Socialist Party will break away from revolutionary socialism and merge with the Reformist Party under democratic socialism when the Civil War ends. This means Portugal can remain revolutionary socialist as anarchists under the Anarchist Portuguese Union (UAP), an organization connected to the Iberian Anarchist Federation (FAI). The Leninist route is still only restricted to the Communist Coup direction seen in the Progress Report.

    For the Monarchy, they will face a similar situation, with the Monarchist Cause (CM) falling apart after achieving victory. They can choose a constitutional monarchy under the ARP or the CCP or they can go Integralist or Corporatist under the IL and UN respectively.

    Finally, I already teased the Civil War recovery tree, but the Economic tree has also received major changes, now being connected directly to the recovery tree. It has also received a number of new focuses and some less generic names.

    I am also redoing the military trees, including the navy and airforce tree. They are now both connected to the main military tree. As with the economic tree, it is a bit more flavorful now and more in the scope of Portugal. For the moment, I can show off the reworked navy tree:

    Thanks for reading. Hopefully I can show off a lot more next week.

    Jago à la Hat (bluejaygo)
    Beginnings of Haiti

    For the most part, the government of Haiti is going to be roughly the same, with Sténio Vincent as the starting leader. From 1930 to 1941 in OTL, Vincent suspended democracy while he tried to remove US military occupation from their country, eventually doing so in 1934, and resigning from popular elections in 41.

    I am planning on making decisions and events based on what is needed to remove the troops, as there will be a negative country spirit because of it. Further down the line, there will be the Parsley Massacre by the Dominican Republic, and you will have to figure out how to deal with the backlash from both their countrymen and your own.

    Danish Lore

    Denmark in 1932 is under a provisional military dictatorship led by Generalløjtnant William Wain Prior. Denmark was launched into a political crisis following the German Revolution next door.

    1925 - The first Socialist revolt takes place

    After years of witch hunts against socialist leaders, both the left and the right progressively became more radicalized with more socialist elements wanting Prior dead in anticipation of abolishing the monarchy and establishing a new Danish Republic. The revolt started in May of that year. Jutland fell quickly and by the end of year the rebels were pushing on Copenhagen, but during the battle for the city, the rebels were left with a gap in their lines. Prior, seeing this fault, decisively took advantage of it and with that the socialists were sent off running with their tails between their legs. With much aid from Britain, Prior’s regime crushed the revolt later that year.

    1927 - The Aarhus trials start

    The trials were intended to show that anyone who challenged the regime would face deadly consequences. However. Socialist and Liberal rioters continued to march on the streets and the mock trials did not seem to work in the regimes favor.

    1929 - London Stock Exchange Crash

    Denmark fell into more disarray as a result of the crash as its effects hit Denmark extremely hard. This inflamed the already existing anger among socialists in Denmark.

    Can Denmark get out of its hole and stay and stand against socialism or will Denmark fall to the revolution like Germany and Russia?

    Hello, and welcome to the twelfth Dev Report for Spartakus.

    Serbia

    I’ve been working on making two Yugoslav states, Montenegro and Serbia, playable, but I’ll only talk about Serbia in this dev report, as they’re the first to get a focus tree.

    The Adriatic War was sparked by the Italians supporting the anti-Yugoslav elements in Montenegro, and tore apart the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, splitting among three states.

    The loss of all Great War gains caused mass unrest in Serbia, and in order to prevent it from escalating further, the parliament was suspended and all political organizations were banned. However, 10 years have passed since then, and King Alexander’s power is caving under pressure and various concessions to underground organizer and activists. He is massively unpopular, and probably won’t survive for long.

    [​IMG]

    The May Day rally of 1932, the first one held since before the Great War, will be the tipping point of the collapsing monarchy.

    [​IMG]

    Serbia is faced with the choice of adopting a modern constitution, or avoiding political change via an octroic constitution and allowing a single party in the parliament.

    [​IMG]

    Upon adopting a modern constitution, Serbia will hold its first free elections, and choose between the two leading opposition parties.

    [​IMG]

    If it chooses the octroic constitution, it can slide either back to a liberal coup, a communist revolution or a military government.

    Further on, the reformation of Yugoslavia may be a major part of its foreign policy path, but more on this later, hopefully next week.

    British Raj Focus Tree

    Hello everyone, it’s me back after quite a hiatus, 6 dev reports i believe, but I come bearing the British Raj Tree! Or at least a third of it… A military tree will be added eventually, but the current tree does some up the Raj’s position quite well.

    At the start of 1932, the British Raj is not heavily affected by the depression, as an economy is required to have an economic crash, and the British Raj has little in the way of an internal economy, and what little exists serves the British colonial enforcers mostly, bar a miniscule Anglo-Indian middle class. But while the Raj maintains itself comfortably, more investments must be made to tide over the British aristocrat’s fortunes while London struggles with its Depression. Thus, the first part of the tree is about extracting more from the fruit that is India. For a player, this means long foci, that provide negligible reward

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The foci are all 70 days, except the Budget ones, meaning most of the year will be spent doing nothing.

    This all comes into sharp focus in 1934, where after the yearly budget occurs, -redacted- causes the near collapse of the Raj. Emergency changes must be made, and a desperate bid must be made to create an army independent of Britain, for the Crown may be too late to save the Raj

    [​IMG]

    A choice must be made, over commit to rapidly building a military...

    [​IMG]

    ...and risk further internal troubles, or gamble on the fact that the new enemies of the Raj will take time to be ready to crush her and gradually build the economy...

    [​IMG]

    ...to support a massive army to crush the upstarts.

    I can’t guarantee anything, but I hope it takes less time for another Indian report to pop-up after this one!

    Somaliland

    You might see this title and wonder what the hell I am doing with my modding time, but I assure you, this is just a side little flavor thing for the moment that I wanted to show off. I could show off more devwork in Portugal or Livonia but I am also getting very near being able to show off those two countries in Progress Reports and would rather not spoil the entire focus trees for them through teasers.

    So, here is Somaliland:

    [​IMG]

    Somaliland is dominated primarily by the Warsangali tribe under Maxamuud Cali Shiire due to their cooperation with the British near the end of the Dervish rebellion. The legacy of the Dervish State (1899-1920) still both haunts and unites the people of Somaliland of which many see as a valiant attempt to retain independence for the Somali peoples. However, the rebellion took a great toll on the population and prosperity of Somaliland and the neighboring Ogaden region in Ethiopia due to mass livestock raiding by the leader of the Dervish’s, Mohammed Abdullah Hassan (also known as the “Mad Mullah”).

    With the British Empire experiencing many issues elsewhere that strain its ability to fund the Somaliland Protectorate, some have conspired to start another rebellion against the British to drive them out of the important port city and capital of Berbera. Will the Dervish State be reborn? Only time will tell.

    I hope you enjoyed this little minor showcase. I am hoping to get another PR for both Portugal’s either on Friday or this weekend.
