Ohh bugger, one mod has Malta, the other doesn't
Well, it's still a fantastic mod, and a very original preview though
Malta will be in the mod but as a PSF not as a settlement which would make it a population creation centre, we think it was more of a fortification. In our mod PSFs can still give you income through our use of traits that give titles of governorship
Duly noted, results pending
EDIT: we have decided that based on its situation in 1080 and given the limited number of settlements availible, Utrecht will remain as the representative of the Netherlands region.

Let's imagine the following scenario:
Kingdom of Jerusalem owns 6 settlements: Jerusalem, Ashkelon, Tyre, Acre, Damascus, Nicosia (mainly Palestine + Cyprus)
Egypt owns 6 settlements: Fustat Misr, Alexandria, Dumyat, Aqaba, Jidda, Dongola (Egypt + Sudan + rich shores of the Red Sea)
Great Seljuks owns 6 settlements: Tabriz, Isfahan, Shiraz, Hormuz, Nishapur, Urgench (all of Persia + Kwarezmian lands up to the Aral Sea)
In reality, Egypt and the Seljuks would be far more poweful (more land, more people, more abundent and various resources) than the Kingdom of Jerusalem.
Will this also be reflected in the game? (I'm not questioning your work and research!)
Somewhat, because PSFs will generate income. In the case of your example, the Seljuks would be receiving considerable income from the PSFs in Persia. Furthermore, the power of the Kingdom of Jerusalem would be limited by our government and area of recruitment systems. A Catholic faction can't just take Jerusalem and expect to be able recruit European units without serious investment in time and money first.
Hi, I'm new here. I like what you are doing with Dots a lot. I have read almost every post to find out information on this but cannot find information on the following.
If any faction has only PSFs, no matter how many and no Settlements, will the game end, or have you set it so that PSFs will be part of the success and failure variables for each faction?
The work that went on to do the real City Sieges will they be donated to be used as a custom battle map if they cannot be used in the campaign?
I think this will be the only time where I will want to play each playable faction in a game and that’s a first. The suspense is killing me and I only found out about Dots earlier this week. Well done everyone at Dots for commitment and everyone else for patience. If I found this two years ago I would have gone nuts by now. Lol
Sorry if this is in the wrong thread to add this as I have just registered to ask this.
Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
It has been already revealed that they cannot be used as custom city battle maps, because of game-engine limitations. It could be done only via altering the actual siege files, but that would affect all cities of given culture and not only the actual city designed. They will however be used for custom battles and probably historical battles as well.The work that went on to do the real City Sieges will they be donated to be used as a custom battle map if they cannot be used in the campaign?
I thank you for your answers.

Looking forward to this mod!

i really don't understand on what time is based territorial occupation. Bus Rus, Novgorod and Poland having much more terrtitory than Lithuania.... I don't know. Its more like nowdays than middleages, sorry Lithuania is small today. But in that times Lithuania was strongest force in Easter europe. We fight agains Golden Ord, Moscow, Teutonic Order at same time (and making diplomacy with them at same time). Do you think that so small country coud survive that pressure? Of course not. And we not even survive, but we sttoped Golden Ord fron expanding to europe, destroyed Teutonic Order and so on
In 1080 which is our mod's start date, the Lithuanians had a little less territory than is encompassed by the modern Lithuanian nation.i really don't understand on what time is based territorial occupation. Bus Rus, Novgorod and Poland having much more terrtitory than Lithuania.... I don't know. Its more like nowdays than middleages, sorry Lithuania is small today. But in that times Lithuania was strongest force in Easter europe.
Thats not wery true. We don't have "official" borders at that time because all other part of europe said that we are barbarians because we are not christians. And yes, it should be lots of rabels around. And do you know how our name was first time mentioned in documents (at 1009)?
Just because there were not official borders does not mean that the approximate territory inhabited by Lithuanians is not known. Even in the time of Mindaugaus, the Kingdom of Lithuania was not much (if at all) larger than modern Lithuania. It was only later in our time period that Lithuania expanded significantly.
I read it on the Wiki anyway.And do you know how our name was first time mentioned in documents (at 1009)?
I'm no expert on Lithuanian history however, but it has been well-researched by other members of our team.

When DotS begins, the state of Lithuania doesn't yet even exist. We've taken this into account in the game.
