    overextension, how do i get rid of it?

    Never seen this before but its nasty, somethin like +3 min revolt risk, +3 nat revolt risk, +30% stab cost. i understand how i got it (got too big too fast) but how do i get rid of it? and where is it at in the game files so i can look it up, gave a quick glance but couldnt find it.

    From the .txt file:

    Code:
    ########################################
    # Overextension - Anti-Blobbing measure
    ########################################
    overextension = {
    	icon = 2
    	
    	trigger = {
    		OR = {
    			NOT = { core_percentage = 0.5 }
    			AND = {
    				NOT = { ADM = 6 }
    				NOT = { core_percentage = 0.66 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				NOT = { ADM = 4 }
    				NOT = { core_percentage = 0.75 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				NOT = { ADM = 2 }
    				NOT = { core_percentage = 0.85 }
    			}
    		}
    		
    		OR = {
    			num_of_cities = 120
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 100
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = 4 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 90
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = 3 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 80
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = 2 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 70
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = 1 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 60
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = 0 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 50
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = -1 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 40
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = -2 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 30
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = -3 }
    			}
    			AND = {
    				num_of_cities = 20
    				NOT = { centralization_decentralization = -4 }
    			}
    		}
    	}
    	
    	global_revolt_risk = 3
    	minimum_revolt_risk = 3
    	stability_cost_modifier = 0.5
    	
    }
    So lower your centralization, get a better ADM ruler or release some vassals so you have less non-cores.

    You can either become more centralized, release some countries as vassals, or wait it out.

    Actually become less centralized, the more centralized you are the more your bureucracy gets strained because you're trying to control everything from the capital. Decentralization = more autonomy and self-government for the provinces, less strain on the nation's bureucracy. Remember that -5 centralization in code means you're fully centralized, the number increases from left to right so full decentralization would be +5

    So to sum it up, a list of factors for overextension:
    - Poor ADM rating
    - Percentage of non-core provinces
    - Total amount of provinces, incomplete colonies excluded
    - Centralization (decentralization prevents overextension)
