Hi! I’ve been reading your posts about possible Italian factions. Being Italian, I’d really like to see more Italian factions in the game. If you want to learn more about what was happening in Italy in the 17th and 18th century I suggest you read this book: https://books.google.it/books?id=Uz...#v=onepage&q=italian military history&f=false. It’s a good starting point. You can use the bibliography for further reading, but most of it is in Italian, since very few foreign historians are interested in that period of Italian history. As for the factions I’d like to see in Cossacks, maybe in an Italian States DLC, I’d list: the Papal Sates, the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, Tuscany and Genoa. I’d also like Piedmont to be redone properly. As it is now, it's a concoction of different Italian states It would be impractical to add other minor states such as Parma, Modena, Lucca, etc. since they usually were French, Spanish or Austrian client states. That’s also the case with Milan, which was first under Spanish and then under Austrian rule. Genoa, which was under heavy Spanish influence, could actually just be an alternative “skin” for Venice, with the same troops and benefits, but different buildings. It would certainly get the attention of Italian players, the other only game where you can play with Italian factions being Europa Universalis.
