It's common enough; backwards nations with reasonable economies and nothing to spend their money on will just stockpile it until Nurgle gets clean... or until someone with better ideas for their money thumps them on the head.
The perversity of the universe always tends toward a maximum. - Finagle's Law
A multitude of rulers is not a good thing; let there be one ruler, one king. - Herodotus
If it's worth fighting for, it's worth fighting dirty for. — Murphy's Laws of Military Operations
Lots of African nations have that too.
I've taken thousands from Kongo
That's basically what the RL conquistador felt when they went there.
LAUDS AH MONEY!
Yeah it's common. That's why it can often be a good idea to protect Inca/Aztecs if you don't plan on conquering them. Just go to war for ducats every now and then but never take any provinces.

if you`re the first european to get to them and they are big you can get 100 for each point of warscore-if you`re already rich, take 17 provinces instead-you can only do this once though with ming, since their neighbours will pile in afterwards-i usually get to their western border around 1550, by snaking through the hordes.....
Well Im a bit thinly stretch right now to be taking on big nations. I got the aztecs again for another 2k, with 100 warscore, this is fun lol. also I took the island off the south cost of india, should be good for a future base, I'll be sure to raid the mainland for prestige and tradition Maybe I'll give the cherokee another whack while I'm at peacetime with the major powers .
Is my fleet in danger of becoming outdated, its still the largest, but not made of new ships, will this be a mjor problem, I could maybe use the money I got to modernize the navy? disband old units and build new?
A new fleet is worthwhile but don't disband the old ships, use them for pirate control (by stationing one in ports every ~3 seazones, depending on the size of the zone) and to make sure you keep tariffs at 100%. Only destroy any extra once you've got all of that covered.
Does anyone know how the amount of money you can take in a peace deal is decided? I often see the amount go down during the war, the more enemy provinces I occupy, the less money I can demand. I can't see much logic behind that..
It's spelled you, not u.
