edit: beaten but leaving it since I actually linked to it! However it looks like Mixed Mod includes it as well, so, welp. Just so this post actually has value, here's the mod you really were looking for.

Still doesn't beat the bug from vanilla DH where if you couped the Soviet Union as a Leninist government you got Lenin and Trotsky back in charge, along with the rest of the civil war government.

Here's my first game as Ottomans in 1535.



- Mega Poland is allied with Mega France.
- The Hansa has northern Germany locked up and the AI always seems to do well with Tuscany.
- Qara Konalu is the puke green blob and Oman has united Arabia Shiites triumph.
- Timurids migrated north-east

I figured the best way to deal with everyone buying access to Portugal's ports was to exterminate Portugal. Colonization isn't as expensive as I expected and I've been able to build 10 or so colonies without much expense. It sucks that you can't seize universities anymore but being able to core quickly makes remote conquests much cheaper. In EU3 I would have had 50 years of -90% remote province income penalties for my Spanish provinces, but now it's just months. Also no colonist penalties for Islam! And since only nearby powers care about your aggression buffer states work brilliantly.

There's no upper limit to how far you can improve relations with a vassal. With normal nations you can only hit +100 before your guy says I can't do it anymore but with vassals I've gotten it up to 140+ from that modifier alone so that I could annex.

And yeah rebels can be a huge loving deal, my Mughal game is in a death spiral because I have no manpower and the rebels just keep coming.

It's actually +200 with Vassals.

Don't you need +190 to vassalize to begin with? How do you do that? Is that basically a way of forcing you to win some wars with your junior allies in order to vassalize them?

Same enemy, same religion, royal marriage, and some relations boost with maybe a gift thrown in is enough.

Or just enforce it via war

The shared enemy bonus is definitely the easiest way to get diplo vassals, which makes sense if you think about it.

What he meant is that you can get a total of +200 relations from "improve relations" with one of your vassals instead of the usual +100 max with other countries. This helps a lot inheriting different religions vassals and such. Still, having the same rivals and all makes it faster.

To diplo vasalies you pretty much need the shared enemy bonus ontop of being allied, maried and the same religion, which as others have said makes perfect sense. It shouldn't be easy for you to vassalies another country, and they are only going to agree to it to get the protection against another power that they fear.

The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger and Richards look like droopy-eyed armless children.

Or if you support a rebellion it seems pretty easy to vassilize the country right after. I did it with Scotland as Great Britain when they rebelled from Norway in a multiplayer game and I was able to diplo vassilize right after despite owning the rest of their provinces.

They're very good hands.

While it was incredibly annoying right when it happened, in retrospect it is pretty cool that a single 5/5/2/3 rebel commander forced me to convert to Protestantism. I was coming out of a war where the Ottomans had killed all of my 80k troops (thanks for all the help Poland, I'm glad you lost Bessarbia ), and my mercenaries could not touch him. Without ironman I would have just reloaded, but I converted and am having more fun for it.

Ironman mode is the best mode.

Holy crap, I've left my Gamersgate CK2 game behind since it isn't compatible with my Steam EU4, and now want to start a Steam CK2 game - and all the CK2 DLC is nearly $100! I hope there's another sale soon.

Tell me about it, I've done the same, my CK2, EU3, V2 and HOI3 have all now migrated over to steam. Luckily there was a 75% off sale when I biught all my stuff. Now EU4 is out I'd think a Paradox Steam sale should be on the hozison.

We usually don't give fan tours of our office unless there are special events etc. You are however welcome to PM me, Darkrenown, Wiz or podcat if you want to meet us for a beer or two after working hours. Unless you're a creepy anti-social person of course, we don't want to drink beer to awkward silence

Is there anywhere I can find out more info on exactly how the trade system works and how to gain the most from it? For example I have no idea if I should send Barques to protect the trade and increase tradepower for a tradenode where I control 100% of the provinces or what to do to get the most out of it. Is it better to use my merchants to steer trade or collect income? Why do I not receive income frome some nodes even though I control most of the trade in it?

How would I for example increase my income in Ragusa? I'm the Roman Empire.

That's a great deal, just (around) 20 dollars! But I've never bought anything there. Is it good? Will there be any issues if I don't live in Brazil?
