    Well, first of all dismiss every unit till you have a positive turnover
    Then conquer as fast as you can Ragusa and Tunis. Then go for Zagreb, after that you are free to conquer what you want

    After turn 64 you will be able to recruit the Janissary units, so look after them in the beginning

    Make sure to send two merchants to the gold mines near Sarajevo, too, in order to net you some 1000 florins that might come in rather useful in the early game.

    As Iskar like to say, send a merchant to the gold mines next to Sarajevo.
    But as I recall, you should have silver mine somewhere south of Vienna.
    With these two or better three incomes you should be well prepared for the beginning

    I have seen the silver and gold at Villach myself, my family originates from there...

    There is also gold and silver near Nyitra just east of Vienna and silver in the alps along the Brenner from Innsbruck to Trient. Another nice source of income are the cloth trade of Zürich and Augsburg as well as the Sulphur mines of Spalato and Napoli. Spices and Silk in Tuscany, Lombardy and Liguria might add a little bit extra.

    I can heartily recommend the Italian Wars mod by Aneirin.

    Yes, the HRE is one of the tougher factions in Italian Wars.
    Well, at the beginning I'd recommend using the Emperor conquering the cities of southern Germany, like Landshut, München, Salzburg, Passau.
    Use your merchants as mentioned above and send them to valuable resources. That will provide you a decent revenue.

    If you need advice on any specific event, just let me know

    Should I attack The Swiss Confederation when the event of demanding them taxes appears??
    It s better to control the southern regions of the empire rather than the northern cities, isn´t it?

    Thank you soooo much!!!!

    Well, that depends on your current income. You see, war is quite expensive. Though you have the Swabian League on your side it will be take quite some time to deal with the Swiss.

    I am not entirely sure, which cities do you mean by southern regions?
    Could you give me an example?

    A GREAT mod,getting immersed into it! About the Swiss Wars (HRE,Swabia and Swiss Union),is it possible to alter the campaign script and make Frundsberg army appear a few turns later? Playing as HRE I had to return to save game of turn 23 after having accepted the choice of war,but in new turn 24 no army appeared on map. I'd like to get Frundsberg and keep the current progress as well,I eagerly await for your suggestions.
