What will happen to the shoguns and daimyos

Tue May 22, 2018 2:28 am

Shoguns and daimyos began to decline in the mid 19th century and this mod takes place throughout the 19th century to early 20th century. Is there going to be a change to them?

From my perspective at least, they began to decline in the mid 19th century and this mod takes place throughout the 19th century to early 20th century. So there's no real reason to remove them.

I dont see anything wrong with keeping them, but i will submit my idea anyway: how about replacing them with western representitives, like an american general, a british general etc that each provide a different bonus?

The shogun unit is currently represented by Tokugawa Ieyasu, but Tokugawa wasn't alive anymore in the mod's timeframe.

Following this logic, you would have to remove civs like Aztecs completely. I personally prefer the loose way of dealing with the time frame, it opens up more possibilities.

But I thought this mod covers late 17th century to early 20th century.

Besides, Aztec is going to be reworked in future patches as Nahua.

If it covers this time frame shoguns and daimyos are totally fine. And today, it does cover the 16th to early 20th century.

Besides, Aztec is going to be reworked in future patches as Nahua.
We'll see. It would be a bad move in my opinion. Nobody has any idea what the Nahua are. Everybody knows the Aztecs, that's why they did them in twc. And for consistency, they would have to rework/remove civs WoL just introduced like the Inca.

Well maybe they will after they are implemented.
