    Looks like Mexico is doing pretty well against Texas... not surprising, given that while Texas' army and leaders are very good, there are just not enough of them in the beginning, and AI-Texas tends to get pwned.

    To be honest, I never enjoyed Victoria; the economic system was a bit too complex for me, and I felt more like a Communist Premier than the president of America.

    It's very unhistorical so I loaded up as Mexico and just ended the war with the borders as is. That's actaully the largest Texas I've ever seen.

    Doeth - It's only 1840

    Imajin - :confused: Maine is still Union blue. It's just the state I've currently selected.

    I usually conquer Canada..... fully. And I believe I had Custer seize a lot of their colonial posessions out west.

    Oh, and the expansion will add private initiative as being the main way of controlling the economy for capitalist governments.

    Ugh, unless they're distracted with a war in Europe, war with Britain before 1870 is not fun.

    A year and a day after their dastardly attack, the Mexican Empire is on it's knees, it's armies crushed.

    One weak point about Vicky is this war. the US used less than 50,000 men to the Mexicans maybe a few more and here you have no fewer than 390,000:eek: I counted the divisions on the left. Just had an AI war with the UK and China fighting where China had 560+ divisions in 1854. That is at a minimum 56,000,000 men or about 1 in every 8 people in China in thier army. of course I have over 1300 divisions in my Prussian reserves and 576 divisions all with brigades attached in my Regular Army. I have however stayed out of all wars except the Danish War that I need to get Germany.

    After much stuborness, in which the Mexicans wouldn't cave into my demands despite the fact that 95% of Mexico south of the Rio Grande was under occupation I forced the Mexican government to give up the northern half of the country.

    Well, it is made by the same people that made Europa Universalis, and there is a fan-made converter of save games between the two. The con is that there is a LOT of micromanagement, but if you don't mind that, it may be a game for you.

    I prefer micromanagement, so that's perfect.

    What I'm doing is waiting a bit, and saving up for an External Harddrive. Considering I am getting a bunch of games, I can just put them all on it.
