    Why wouldn't it be? (And it is copyrighted unless otherwise stated)

    Right click the link and save it on your PC first. I also had the same problem when I directly wanted to open the link but then everything was fine once I opened the saved pdf file.

    Of course, screenshots in manuals generally come from beta versions and may depict elements of gameplay that may not longer produce similar results as shown.

    Ok. That really worried me (as you may have seen) as this was a bug in Vanilla Vicky and Ricky that endures to this day. Québec's grande dame (dixit O!G) is pleased

    I haven't read the whole thread so I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but the manual says that more starting scenarios may possibly be added later through Mods or patches.

    I liked the part that implied that your ships had limited ranges based on your port level.

    The manual says that provinces can be taken in peace agreements, and the state will then become 2 states.

    Is that correct, or has this changed since the manual was written?
    "For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."

    "When we are unwilling to draw clear moral lines between free societies and fear societies, when we are unwilling to call the former good and the latter evil, we will not be able to advance the cause of peace because peace cannot be disconnected from freedom."

    Same as in the original Vicky. Seems reasonable that the mechanic remains.

    I seem to recall at several times people complaining that PI was going remove single province annexation and force full state annexations...

    I must have misread their statements..

    That's still the state of our knowledge.

    However I suppose there may be exceptions - province cession through events, war goals like "recover cores" when cores are only on a part of a state... such stuff.

    I have saved the tech guide to PDF in my documents and still cannot read it. Strangely though I can read the manual and map PDFs fine. My Acrobat reader has the most recent updates. Any ideas?

    Most everything is based on the State now, but there are weird circumstances past game-start that could still result in States being divided between countries -- as you note, plus rebels, etc. To my knowledge, no you wouldn't be able to trade individual provinces in peace treaties. There are divided states at game-start though.
