Cultural Tensio - for Divide Et Impera

What is it?

This mod increases cultural tension between traditionally antagonistic peoples and repurposes the colonization and conversion system of DeI.
don't expect that your culture becomes dominant just by capturing the settlement and rebuild the buildings. Army’s governors, veterans become more important than before. i tested for 250 turns it and results are that player and AI has to deal more with cultural tension and are expanding much slower .

a few examples:

*Hellenic Genius: Greek Factions are persuasive but unstable. To achieve this I altered the Public Order balance for Hellenic Culture, hopefully to simulate the turbulence of Greek politics. In my test campaigns this has seemed to be the case. Greek culture is irresistible and powerful, as it was nearly everywhere the Greeks colonized. Greek ports and temples spread Hellenic culture.

*Roman Integration: Rome colonizes via arms, farms and fame. The more powerful you become, the faster your conquered regions should integrate. However, some areas will fight Roman rule tooth and nail. Expect near constant rebellion requiring a governorship and military presence to subjugate.

*Barbarian Integration: Barbarian colonizes via temples and buildings, the barbarian factions don't have a unique way colonizes. so there temples and buildings have an increase on culture. keep your armies in the region to stabilize it.

*Reworked Timeline: In 15 test campaigns I've been running it takes roughly (20 years / 60-80 turns) to achieve a 30% culture presence with a semi-compatible culture (i.e. Roman colonizing Greek/Illyrian). After about 20 years the culture will have become majority faction dominant, but again, only with effort.

*Note: This mod does not effect the diplomatic relations between factions of different culture groups. I'll leave it up to the DeI team which already has a great dynamic with their hardcore/softcore submods. Cultural tension only affects internal faction dynamics, the integration process and governance.

1: Yes its save game compatible
2: Yes designed for the latest DEI version
3: Yes works with other DEI mods
4: Yes has an effect on all cultures

1: If you use alot of mods check the steam load order. Cultural Tensio should be loaded before the Hardcore and softcore mods
2: (if you changed the load order) The mod is being updated allot.
so check if you use the latest version.

I really like the concept of this mod, but right now it seems oddly harsh. In my Iceni campaign I have a base -15 cultural tention penalty, even if the culture is 100% britannic. Why is there a base? I get having culture have a big impact, but having a base value independent of the actual cultural makup of the province just doesn't make sense to me.

@Oarnt, you don't need to worry about the error too much, only when the game stops playing :p. Any mod that isn't downloaded through Steam will give you that error so I got used to it :p.

a new update has been published by Xardovany. he took over the CT project and is doing a great job with it. sadly steam doesn't allow me to transfer the project to his workshop so i have to update it. but no credits for me this is now his work!
