I'd just like to say I really appreciate the work you've put in over the last few days. ~ Meneth (talk) 07:20, 17 December 2013 (CET)

You're welcome, happy to contribute ! Romulien (talk) 00:27, 18 December 2013 (CET)

Thanks for adding the icons to the CB table. They really make it look nicer! Hairy Dude (talk) 16:36, 22 December 2013 (CET)

I've just added the remaining ones ! Funny thing is that only half of the ones in game files are actually used, either programmers forgot to include them or they didn't like them after all ^^ Romulien (talk) 17:33, 22 December 2013 (CET)

I'd like to thank you again. You've singlehandedly done more for this wiki than everyone else has combined in the past month at the very least. ~ Meneth (talk) 19:05, 23 December 2013 (CET)

This great game definitely deserves a great wiki :-) I think this wiki can help a lot on making the game more accessible, as there are amazing contributions on the CKII forum that are sadly never centralized/merged and then are difficult to find back. Romulien (talk) 21:06, 23 December 2013 (CET)
Indeed. That's a big part of what I've tried to achieve by creating these wikis. ~ Meneth (talk) 21:55, 23 December 2013 (CET)

Thanks for adding the map mode icons. You're the best! Jruderman (talk) 12:04, 11 October 2014 (CEST)

Assimilation --> de jure merge[edit]

Sounds like a good idea to me to do the merge, so go for it. ~ Meneth (talk) 12:47, 16 March 2014 (CET)

Ok, done ! Romulien (talk) 15:08, 16 March 2014 (CET)

Steam workshop downloader[edit]

These websites are based on an exploit, and likely breach of steam user agreement, so shouldn't be advertised. This is not exploit, web site based on Steam Api.

Post method on Steam Api:

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, '');
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "key=&format=json&itemcount=1&publishedfileids[0]=".$id);
$out = curl_exec($curl);
$json = json_decode($out, true);
echo json_encode($arr);

And result in JSON:

	"response": {
		"result": 1,
		"resultcount": 1,
		"publishedfiledetails": [
				"publishedfileid": "608738995",
				"result": 1,
				"creator": "76561198059416860",
				"creator_app_id": 203770,
				"consumer_app_id": 203770,
				"filename": "mod/",
				"file_size": 86596,
				"file_url": "",
				"hcontent_file": "309989521280230392",
				"preview_url": "",
				"hcontent_preview": "356150406689874615",
				"title": "Sketchy Cheat Menu",
				"description": (...),
				"time_created": 1453770648,
				"time_updated": 1454654310,
				"visibility": 0,
				"banned": 0,
				"ban_reason": "",
				"subscriptions": 4599,
				"favorited": 123,
				"lifetime_subscriptions": 4787,
				"lifetime_favorited": 124,
				"views": 11081,
				"tags": (...)

Why is it exploit?

My bad, sounds a legitimate use of the API indeed.
What makes me suspicious is that Paradox has enforced some rules [1] allowing mod download links only:
  • in the restricted modding sub-forum (requiring a valid game steam key).
  • via the steam workshop, probably assuming that steam would do a similar check.
So there is some contradiction if the intent is "anti-piracy". -Romulien (talk) 20:54, 5 February 2016 (CET)
This is very epic.

Deleting Pages[edit]

I see you are a half-op. Can you delete pages? If so, I'd like you to delete a nonsense redirect I accidentally created a while ago, Thanks. Compassionate727 (talk) 02:00, 29 February 2016 (CET)

Done ! By the way, nice work setting up the redirects for using with iconify template ! Cheers -Romulien (talk) 18:50, 29 February 2016 (CET)

User page[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that your attempt to move your userpage to central failed somewhere along the line. Compassionate727 (talk) 19:30, 23 May 2016 (CEST)

Thanks, looks like it was a cache issue that went away after a while... Romulien (talk) 21:45, 24 May 2016 (CEST)

Some file renaming[edit]

Could I get the following files renamed, please? When I uploaded the first four new decision icons, I wasn't aware that I was supposed to use the names they are found under in the local files and was naming them after their decisions in-game instead.

File:Decision icon shut the gates.png renamed to File:Decision icon go into seclusion.png
File:Decision icon open the gates.png renamed to File:Decision icon come out of seclusion.png
File:Decision icon recruit court physician.png renamed to File:Decision icon seek treatment.png
File:Decision icon sky burial.png renamed to File:Decision icon sky burial decision.png

Thanks in advance. - Gamengervi (talk) @ 02:57, 27 August 2016 (CEST)

No problem. Done. – Lillebror (talk) 07:50, 27 August 2016 (CEST)
Thank you. - Gamengervi (talk) @ 08:23, 27 August 2016 (CEST)

Plural versus singular[edit]

You moved the 'Hospitals' page I created awhile back to 'Hospital', writing that it was better to use the singular form of the word, but the castles, temples, cities, and tribes articles remain in the plural form. Is there a reason for this? - Gamengervi (talk) @ 18:52, 5 September 2016 (CEST)

Well, it's easier to enforce it for new pages, because page is not linked from many other pages :) I agree it's a bit messy at the moment. -Romulien (talk) 20:40, 5 September 2016 (CEST)

Fair enough. If the singular form is preferred, could these articles be moved and redirected and any links could just be fixed as they're spotted? - Gamengervi (talk) @ 20:48, 5 September 2016 (CEST)

I would be happy to help fix the links if we would like to try and standardize the titles. I can check Special:Brokenredirects and Special:WantedPages, right after Romulien changes them just let me know when you want to do it and ill try to set aside some time. --Joe246 (talk) 00:43, 6 September 2016 (CEST)

Somewhat related, could we get the articles 'Muslim', 'Pagan', and 'Zoroastrians' moved to 'Islam', 'Paganism', and 'Zoroastrianism', respectively? - Gamengervi (talk) @ 12:19, 6 September 2016 (CEST)

Case issue[edit]

Thanks for fixing that for me. I forgot I could capitalize them within the template. - Gamengervi(talk) @ 12:26, 7 November 2016 (CET)
Or not, I see you just made a redirect. My bad. :-P Thanks anyway. - Gamengervi (talk) @ 12:29, 7 November 2016 (CET)

You're welcome, yeah you need to use a File: redirect for such cases. I've expanded the description of Template:Iconify -Romulien (talk) 20:41, 7 November 2016 (CET)

Move of File:Secretly Catholic.png[edit]

Thanks for that, I miscapitalized the title by mistake when I was adding those images and didn't know who to call on the wiki to have it fixed. *thumbs up* --StarSword (talk) 01:37, 21 March 2017 (CET)


Hi, could you please add Tributary type modding to Template:ModdingNavbox (under common)? I don't have permission, and you seem to be the only active halfop. Pjoelj (talk) 18:43, 15 September 2018 (CEST)

Hi, sure done ! -Romulien (talk) 20:24, 18 September 2018 (CEST)

Non-existing scopes and effects[edit]

I renamed the section from "Always" to "Checking if a scope exists" to make finding it easier when you have a practical use that requires it - as it was, I don't think anyone would guess that "Scopes -> Always" was a section about non-existent scopes. So the bit I added about effects fits, I'd argue, considering it's not about "always = bool" anymore. Urist McDorf (talk) 06:25, 4 February 2019 (CET)

Section renaming was great ! But since it's under "Scopes and conditions", I'm worried that modders would wrongly think they can use effects inside trigger scopes, thinking the game will simply not execute them, while in fact it would break the script during loading... The example added a bit to the confusion, since wealth can be both a trigger and an effect. In addition it's a best practice to somehow check a scope exists before blindly executing commands to it (ex: vanilla duplicates the random_xxx blocks between event trigger vs immediate to make sure something matches), because you'll probably end up with weird localization or event logic anyway if that happens.
For me it was enough that you mentioned the point inside Scopes#Condition_vs_command_scopes -Romulien (talk) 11:28, 4 February 2019 (CET)
Alright, those are fair points. Thanks for answering! Urist McDorf (talk) 12:00, 4 February 2019 (CET)


Hi, you got a message on slack. Please respond. ~ SolSys (talk) 17:21, 3 April 2019 (CEST)
