    Which are fun nations to play in EU3?

    Which countries are fun to play starting at the earliest possible date (I think its around 1460 or something)? I like to guide a nation for as long as possible and enjoy long games, I don’t think I would really like later starts Also what is the “best” way to play them?


    I am playing EU3 with the Napoleon’s Ambition expansion.

    Firstly, you should get the mod Magna Mundi Gold. It makes the game 100x better and more fun to play. With it, I've had some fun campaigns with Muscowy(later Russia). France and England is fun too. If you'd like a challenge with the HRE, Austria or Brandeburg is a good choice.

    If you're a ship nut (I am), Portugal is fun too.

    I understand a new expansion will extend the game to an earlier date. So soon there will be no need to mod in the Byzantines.

    Europa Universalis III: In Nomine

    # Start in October 1399, at the coronation of Henry IV of England. Experience over 50 more years of gameplay, experiencing the Byzantine Empire, Tamerlane and the end of the Hundred Years War.

    # See exactly what is required to make the decisions that will shape the future of your country. Strive to create Great Britain, Make Paris worth a Mass, or institute an East Indian Trade Company. Act, rather than react, and implement decisions on both country and province level, with the new decision system, including hundreds of different decisions depending on situation.

    # Experience our new Mission System, where the player and AI will both be given goals to achieve, providing endless replayability by guiding history along different tracks every time.

    # In Nomine will feature Rebels with a Cause. There are countless types of rebels, with different goals, and different abilities. You may get colonial rebels in your colonies determined to get representation or independence, you may get reactionary nobles rising up to put the serfs back where the belong. Crush them by force, or negotiate with them, or even worse, watch them enforce their demands on your country.

    # Religious tolerance now depends on the ideas and decisions you take, making it a new layer of strategy. As cardinals stay loyal longer, the power of the Papal Controller has grown, as he can now excommunicate rulers, and call crusades against infidels.

    # Revised AI, focusing on strategic toplevel goals, with support for fully scriptable logics.

    # Dozens of more gameplay features, including new colonial system, elections in republics, scorched earth & new spy missions,


    Its anticipated to be released before the summer of 2008.
