    Jake, if I had to guess who would be spared I'd guess one of the Steppe Horde factions. Likely you can't even declare on them. All the rest, well I am interested to see how much monthly income you are getting from each one.

    Also, does a blockade count as an engagement for avoiding the auto white peace? I don't think I have ever left a war go on that long with only blockades. If it doesn't then that will be a pain trying to engage every enemy at least once every few years.

    Also, wouldn't your income be high enough that you could just declare and regain stability with massive investment? Seems easier than hunting for CB's. Especially once your colonial lands start coring.

    Ah, I mean which nations that I can reach I'm going to spare. I'm not going to be declaring on countries that I cannot blockade.

    Also, does a blockade count as an engagement for avoiding the auto white peace? I don't think I have ever left a war go on that long with only blockades. If it doesn't then that will be a pain trying to engage every enemy at least once every few years.
    That's right, blockades reset the white peace timer, so constant blockades mean no white peace.

    Also, wouldn't your income be high enough that you could just declare and regain stability with massive investment? Seems easier than hunting for CB's. Especially once your colonial lands start coring.
    The income goes straight into the coffers. It amounts to about 2200 ducats per month. That more than covers my fleet, my standing army and all the buildings I build with 0 minting. I've been able to take my inflation down from 28 to 3.

    To bad its not investable. Post screenshots when you have the whole world blockaded; looking forward to this.

    All done. A few nations were breaking away towards the end and Imperialism only works on countries you border. How well, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. Terra Incogneta was turned off just for these screenshots.





















    I'm sure it's been brought up before, but something needs done about this. These requirements are unreasonable for a large empire, especially the ones involving coal and hardware/munitions.

    If you are mercantile there's provincial decisions you can enact to change the tradegood into one of those, so it may not be as hard as it first seems.

    Yes, but you can only do it for a maximum of 3 provinces. The requirements say you need 6+ if you have over 100 cities.

    I recall the decision becoming available again with time... But I guess I could be misremembering.

    That's very impressive. And also very silly.

    Woul:dn't one say that money from blackade is overpowered ? I mean, unless i'm mistaken, blockade should instead be a money drain, having to maintain a fleet in position. Where would the income be coming from ?

    Captured merchant ships I guess. But the money is more nonsensical than overpowered, you have to invest quite a bit in Ideas to be able to get a good fleet and blockade efficiency.

    Well, after the blockade is started, i guess ships wouldn't try to go past the blockade if it means losing that much money.

    Aye, that's why I said it's nonsensical rather than overpowered. Blockades should be more of a moneydrain for the blockades side than a moneymaker for the blockading side, and should starve geographically sea-dependant countries.

    I'll look if we can remove or at least decrease the money gain from blockade.

    The money I make off of blockades is based only on the trade value of goods. The reason I'm making so much money is because I'm blockading places with high trade value (well, I'm blockading every province) Wool provinces aren't worth it but ebony, wine, chinaware; they all make the crazy money especially late game when +trade value buildings have been built.

    If you want to reduce blockades' effectiveness overtime as well as make it more of an economy crippler, you should make it that near the end of all the other blockade events, a massive national trade modifier is applied so that the trade value of a country's goods falls. This hurts them because broduction is based on trade value*production efficiency and it makes blockades not so lucrative in the long run.

    Although with that said, It does take a lot of work to get to the stage of making good blockade money. My blockade income is about 225% because of ideas and the privateer great man. Galleys are cheap but the battles with the superpowers were not all that easy. It was similar to fighting Europe as the hoard in 1550. I can only have so many ships because of my national idea to reduce galley costs, being fully naval, having the ideas and mass shipyards/naval bases. My base naval limit, even with all of the Americas, is still under 300.

    Okay... so you pulled this off by building your strategy for this ? That looks less non-sensical. But i'll take a look into it nontheless.

    Firenze was my practise run. After I formed Jerusalem it was all about the whole-world blockade :P

    Personally I blame you for making me do it.

    Ok, I'm revving up this thread again. For the new year, I want to do something....Ulmazing

    I'd like to start right now, but if there's a new release coming out soon I'd rather hold off until then.
