    Default FM's

    EDIT: Well seeing as there is a baby limit...

    I was wondering what the most amount of family members anyone's had at one time. This obviously doesn't include client rulers and other stuff. Just family members alive at anyone time.

    Screens are appreciated.

    Five? What have you been smoking, boy? A single family member and his/her spouse can only have, at the most, four kids. Get your facts straightened out.

    Around Five.

    Huh, so that's the limit? Well this is an anti-climatic thread. :-( Well I guess we could always turn this into the most amount of FMs anyone's gotten at one time.

    Nah, I doubt it. But seeing as there can only be 199 provinces, I'm guessing the number of family members (males only) cannot exceed a couple hundred.

    I think the amount can be infinite.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    Sure. But seeing as how that number is inexplicably tied with the number of provinces owned, the number of family numbers will inevitably be well below infinite.

    From what I've seen, saves store it as a 16 bit number, so its probably 65536 (or it might be 32767, if they used a signed one). Unless there's some sort of cleverness going on that I didn't see. But you would have to play for a very long time to get that

    I know that after a certain point, recruited generals in BI would lack the general.

    The actual limit may be lower than the number I mentioned, as that number was the techical maximum limit based on actual space used to store the number. However, the engine might impose a logical limit on the number of family members. The same is done with provinces, from what I know.

    The number of children born to a faction, is that affected mainly by the number of provinces you have in addition to ancillaries/traits or is that only MTW2?

    Not, RTW mechanics in this regard are identical to the MiNO (M2TW) ones. But I have never had an FM have less than four children. Not unless an adopted general took place of one of the FM's children.
