    'Never' is a big word. It's usually better to go for one tech at a time, yes; but if the techs you're going for don't give any particular benefit, you might not want to bother fiddling with your sliders every couple of years, but just leave them spread for 10-15 years while you worry about other things.

    Also, while it's a small factor: remember that when you reach a new tech level, you're also giving a bigger neighbour bonus to all your rivals to help them catch up with you. If the tech level you reach doesn't give you a bonus, all you're doing by reaching it faster is helping your enemies...

    What exactly is "war capacity"? What does it measure? Thanks in advance for a reply.

    How does Neighbor bonus actually work, is it only your direct neighbors? And what happens if you have a buffer-zone of Vassals between yourself and zhe enemiez?

    You get tech investment bonus for every nation in your tech group that is ahead of you, and more if they are farther ahead of you.

    AFAIK your 'neighbours' is your Tech group (Latin, Eastern etc.)

    It's a bonus from your entire tech group. Adjacency doesn't matter.

    For instance, a Great Britain that owns all the British Isles and no other provinces would still qualify for a neighbor bonus, even though they have no actual neighbors. Similarly, a country that just Westernized will get a bonus from all Western (or whatever tech group you just entered) nations.

    Ahh... so in short you can focus on 2-3 Tech trees since you'll get enough Neighbor bonus to keep the others running anyway?

    Not enough to stay modern. You'll fall behind several techs if you don't invest anything into them for 50 years.

    Well if you do that you'll start getting the "ahead of time" penalty which I like to avoid. I always just put all into one tech - but I'm just a newbie.

    Actually, there was a thread from ... a month or two ago? that proved that neighbour bonus comes from both everyone in your tech group, AND everyone you directly border (and I believe direct-border-in-tech-group) counted twice. You'd have to look around a bit to find it, but if you're backwards, bordering more countries is more better (until they invade)

    Quick question:

    I am playing EUIII with updates but not yet any expansions (will get this weekend). But when I'm dealing with rebels, and really sometimes other nations, the wierdest things seem to happen.

    As Wales I have a revolt in a province, I send my army of 4k to quell the revolt, yet an army of 1k beats my army?! Im not sure I understand this. Also, I went to war with Brittany with a war score of 100%, and when I have them cede Finistere and Morbihan, war score of 40, then try and vassal the rest (which is only Vendee) for a tottle warscore of 94, they reject that offer. They will cede the other two provinces but that is it.

    Any advice to this?

    Drachenfire: Were your troops on maximum morale? Also did the terrain (I know wales is mountaneous at parts) give the rebels a major boost?

    Bohemia is my vassal and I would love to diplo-annex them if possible but as it has 7 provinces I am worried that they wouldn't be cored so it would add 1.75 to my yearly infamy score. Is that the case or would they be cored? What would you do if you were me?

    They won't be cored. You will get the unlawful territory penalty. Either keep them as your vassal, they are quite powerful, will send you half their tax income and help you in wars reasonably well. OR Cancle the vassal and then force a PU on them that way when you inherit them you will get cores if you are both in the HRE regardless of your culture groups.

    For this game, keep them as vassal, don't inherit.

    For future games, force a pu don't force vassal.

    How do you find out what unit types another country is using?

    Two ways:

    -When in battle with them you hover over one of their regiments in the battle screen.
    -If you own one of their cores you can recruit their regiment types.

    No way to tell before you start a war with him? (Assuming I don't have his cores, which I don't.)

  18. #1038
    nope. you could always just tag switch though. or you can guess by his tech level and tech group.

    If you can see him build a unit, ie send some boats to his coast to scout, then mouseover that and it will say "building men at arms" etc.

    Or just reload a save as that country. In general though the AI will almost never westernise, so you can just asume its the one it was at the start. Additionally you can set it to be a message pop up when another country westernises so you know which ones have actually changed tech group at least.

    Is it quicker to load/unload armies from a sea zone with a port to the province? Does the AI always attack from the zone the port is in?
