For the version currently in development (introduced for patch 1.4) please see

Après Moi, Le Déluge

Today marks the 70th year since the outbreak of the Republican Revolutions.

The Continental System established by Emperor Napoleon weathered the storm, battered but victorious. The malcontents of the world licked their wounds and bided their time. Radicals and Republicans, Jacobins and Nationalists, all watched for signs of weakness.

Today, the strength of the Continental System will be tested once again.

For an overview of the mod consider one of these Youtube reviews:

I tried to test it. Out of desperation to get the scenario to run, I resorted to cheats to get the run to work, and then tried to replicate the effects i wanted through code. I couldn't figure it out. perhaps you're right.

Did you test this? I don't think anything would happen if you added a country with no land to a faction

They give an ultimatum to Russia, Mexico, Sweden-Denmark, and the Ottomans demanding the liberation of Alaska, Texas, California, Greenland, and Israel as independent states, and I think Democracies would still assist in an offensive war if it's for the sake of liberation and not conquering.

Some effects are incomplete, and some things hadn't been added yet.

I added 11 Deseret flags, 3 Israel flags, a few portraits, and I used a lot of the files without changing them since I tried to make a standalone with the sub-mod plugged in. As I said, it has some extreme balancing issues, but I never got that far since I tried to squish the bugs first.

I added a Deseret-led faction called 'Defenders of the New Promised Land", but I was really cheap in creating the sub-mod because I wanted to test quickly and originally planned to balance it later. I changed Israel M. Smith to be a Regent only and not a Prophet, giving the role to the historic Prophet from WWII, Heber J. Grant. Several portraits will need to be converted to paintings, one focus doesn't have a working image, several effects need to be balanced, and I wanted to make the 5 liberation wars Deseret gets allow them to call allies even if they're a democracy, but I couldn't get the enemy to declare the war for Deseret.

Okay, here's the collection of files: Dropbox Link [www.dropbox.com]

I'm going to post a short description of what i was going for, but even a shorter version will take at least two more comments because even a shorter version will take more than 1000 characters.

You can use pastebin.com if it's just text, or dropbox for other kinds of files

Hey, I was wondering if you could add an expansion for Deseret? The mormons had two special governments they tried in the past, one which was a religious spin on democracy called "theodemocracy", the other a voluntary communal system called the "United Order of Enoch".

I tried making my own personal sub-mod for a Deseret scenario, but the bugs mounted so fast, I think I'd rather see a professional modder do it.

As a Mormon myself, I know quite a lot about Mormon scripture, history, and the much lesser-known things about our past. I tried to do it myself, but it got way too buggy for me. If you're interested in the idea, I can send you what I've got in messages, since it'd be far too lengthy to post it all here.

Well that's something, but I actually haven't seen the Polish one because I always annex them all and give some to Ukraine and Byelorussia. They're pretty much the only ones that I take outright though.

@Tenma Thanks!
@jjmorate Yeah Spain is a high priority, I hope to have something by 1.4
@InsaneWorld I've changed the French and Polish flags to use different styles
