Hey, guys! I’m not sure how many people are still actively playing this game or whatever, but anyway, I decided to make my own Brazil mod since no one tried before. I tried to be as close to reality as possible, but the game has its limits and so does Brazilian transparency (meaning many numbers and rates aren’t advertised appropriately). That said, most of the rates are real, some are approximates and some are educated guesses. I would really like to hear from other Brazilian players if any calibrations are incorrect or outdated. Have in mind this is a first attempt and there’s still a lot to be changed.
I checked all the policies in the game so everything should be good to go. If you use the LGBTQ rights mod, you’ll notice that I couldn’t set the sliders correctly, so it’s set to “Heterosexual marriages only.” I couldn’t find the place to change it (for now). If you want some more realistic gameplay, bump it all the way to full rainbow marriage rights. There are no anti-discrimination laws for the LGBTQ in Brazil. If you don’t have the mod, there aren’t any changes to be made.
Okay, now about difficulty… For testing purposes, I only tried this country at 0% difficulty. It was pretty easy to get past the debt after investing in education and some grants, and then the issue became more about balancing all the different political leanings. I tried again at 25% and got assassinated before I got the chance to play more. Have in mind I am not the best Democracy 3 player, so this could be different for you. What I mean to say is that it might be too difficult, in which case I’d love it if the more experienced players tried it out and let me know. There are a lot of overrides and some of them might be the reason for this. There’s always room for improvement!
Note: for more realistic gameplay, voting should be compulsory. I didn’t turn it on by default for two reasons: 1) I’m not sure how; 2) Even though Brazil has compulsory voting, voters have the option to vote for “blank,” which would be more or less not being part of the elections. The blank votes are only accounted for in case of a close call (in favor of the winning party).
Alright, so below is the .rar for the mod. I didn’t want to make an installer quite yet because I’m pretty sure there’s a lot of stuff to fix and tweak before this is an actual Brazil country option.
