I play with Darthmod Empire mod. Any tips or guidance?
If you were to start a new game, what would be your priorities and goals? What technology route would you take?
Major factions tend to become far too powerful (Russia, Prussia, Maratha Confederacy, etc) and become too challenging to defeat.
I use missionaries and convert territories to my faction's religion. I try to maintain friendly relations, but this can be tricky too. I struggle with maintaining strong navies when trade routes are essential.
Past games I have played as: Great Britain, New Spain, Sweden, United Provinces, United States.
