But it doesn't matter which story quest you already completed? You can just stop with the story when the quest asks you to conquer one of those provinces you aren't allowed to conquer.
As far as I know, it works if you have not yet completed the PME story quest "The End of this Chapter" before taking the first FE province. I don't know if it will still work if you are further into the CE story.

now i have read that you can not scout like 2 areas in the IND c-map or it will give you the bonus quest and take away your RQ ok i have done that and maybe ind.jpgi went to far on the c-map now that i am in the ME BUT my question is

can i scout the bonus area in IND i have 2 open on top and 2 open on bottom in bonus area and the 2 i didn't scout in normal area ( won't scout normal ones ) so i can do them or will scouting the bonus are also give you the bonus quest and take away one of your RQs ???

If I'm reading this right you are currently in ME, but you are on the InA cMap?

The bonus questline will not trigger until you take both Garrison and Las Penas, but that really is only a concern if you are below InA. If you are in ME, then you will be able to complete the bonus questline without a problem.

Just to add to the knowledge, I'm on my way to the hover tanks in one of my cities and can advise the following:
1. For completeness, yes as others have done I avoided scouting the two CE and three TE provinces (I do wonder if avoiding the three TE provinces matters but am not keen to conduct that experiment) - you do end up scouting one of the CE provinces as part of the CE story quest
2. I have pretty much fought the entire CE and TE maps so fighting or negotiating these maps I don't think matters
3. When reaching the FE map, I scouted and negotiated one sector of Agador (the first province) before completing the PME blocking story quest
4. Completing that PME quest leads you into the CE storyline. I got exactly the same quests and order that Onyxblack detailed in post #48. Except I also got ( I think onyxblack just left it off his list) at the end "Dictator's Death", which is the story quest before "King of the Desert"
5. Completing "DIctator's Death" gave me a PME side quest, ending up with 3 PME side quests and no story quest.
6. Completed/aborted PME side quests until I got to RQ's, completed a RQ and .... got another RQ! (not expected)
7. Went to the FE map, negotiated the rest of Agador, completed a RQ and got the desired "Eyes Ahead" in the FE story quest.

I do think the critical elements to avoiding "King of the Desert" are:
a) avoiding the two provinces in CE (until someone tests taking the entire TE map I wonder if avoiding the three TE provinces is necessary)
b) reaching the FE map and scouting the first province BEFORE completing the PME blocking quest (as I remember this was what Raino said in his video, but to be safe I negotiated one sector of Agador before completing the blocking quest)

I can't tell you for sure. I don't know if the bonus questline will trigger or not should you take the bonus provinces without taking Las Penas. I suppose it is worth a try though.

This is most detailed way to skip those Blocker of CE and whole TE questline. This is mostly how i did it. Goodluck, hope you get 4 hoover. 4 hoover still a tricky one, i negotiated the whole map except fort buntu( Last sector must be fight over to get additional FE units) but still got only 1 hoover. There is a trick in the Bonta Town to Bisoraba which im not still sure. I created a new city to experiment that out. But in my main at US, that 1 hoover is still doing some wrecking havoc at gbg.

I am on part 2 of the OF map and have acquired all provinces except Tangled Fins which the story quest now says to acquire.
But I have the option of getting on the boat.
Is it possible that this might be a way of getting around the blocker Persuasion in OF storyline?

That boat just takes you to the next OF map (there's multiple). The Persuasion quest is further along. And even if you could get past it, people report the story ending after OF until you age up to VF.

I'm in PE right now, will it hurt me/my questline much for me to work my way through the CE and TE maps (excluding the 2 CE and 3 TE noted provinces)? I'm currently sitting at PME "Bring in the Colonel" which requires a tech, so I'll have to age up at some point, since I don't have any spare techs open. Do you think it's possible to skip the PME tech blocker (The End of this Chapter) and all of the CE/TE storyline and make it to FE quests by scouting the first FE province after completing Bring in the Colonel (this is 4 quests before The End of this Chapter. Thanks.

You won't mess up the questline working through the CE and TE maps (and yes, leave out the noted provinces).

And I doubt you will skip the remainder of the PME questline, but I suppose there is a chance.

ok. sweet. I'll give it a try. It's gonna take me a while to work through CE and TE maps. I've been harvesting goods hardcore for a month and I'm pretty much ready to make my age up run to CE and then my storyline run to the beginning of OF. 6k ME, 7k PME, 10k CE, 12k TE, 12k FE, and 25k AF goods. I had to spend about 1500 fps to trade up my PE goods, but dang, its gonna be worth it. Ok I'm done talking myself up now. lol. I love this game!
