    Worldwide Scottish Trade League

    I'll be posting progress of my crazy games. As proimised, I'm working on my worldwide trade league in Meiou starting as Scrotland.

    This is more of a placeholder at the moment and I'll not have too much time update, but I'll do so as and when I can. For now, here's just a picture of my utter defeat at the hands of France.

    'Utter'... I suspect you may have just run out of ammunition in the end. Good job with more fun games though, keep them coming.

    It's now 1440ish, I have starved Flanders' CoT to destruction and now have all or Northern Europe trading through my CoTs or otherwise in my trade league. There are many complicated mechanics behind trade leagues which have been explored here I'll be using and abusing these in order to get as much control over trade as I can.

    Are you attempting something similar to the Vanilla AAR (by naggy or Prawnstar or someone) where they tried to get the whole world trading through their single COT? You might need to change a file somewhere since the game will randomly spawn new COT's if the province number-to-COT number isn't above a certain threshold.

    EDIT: Ah, I saw your link. You seem to have that covered already.

    New cots are already spawning in the HRE. Much to my delight, they swiftly starve and die.

    Ufortunately, with the bloated trade values in Meiou, a CoT can survive on the income from a few provinces alone if they are truly valuable. Cloth, naval supplies and such.

    I've still not decided what to do with the new world either. The best thing would be for me to claim the western hemisphere myself but I don't want any land other than the British Isles (sans Ireland and Wales) and Denmark + a select few CoTs around the world.

    If you want to avoid huge tracts of land it would still probably wise to be the first coloniser so you can set up a string of COTs along the coast and just let the AI fill in all the provinces behind

    I can and am breaking France into little bits who will each join my trade league but Portugal and Spain are big problems: I cannot break the appart into smaller nations and as a result they will likely eat up the Americas.

    My half-baked plan for now is to annex them, sell off the Iberian lands to my vassals and keep the Iberian CoTs for myself. Better yet I'll make it so that there is only one Iberian CoT. Probably Barcelona.

    When the stagnation of a COT (you can check it in the ledger) hits 50 the COT will disappear so just limit the amount of trade going through it as much as possible and don't send merchants there.

    I also have a n00b question : what are the requirements to shift to Merchant Republic, I'd like to try it with Brittany.

    Changing to a merchant republic just requires the government level or the plutocratic decision. However there is no way to become a grand merchant republic (trade league) without editing/creating decisions or modifying a save.

    Untrue : if you are a nerchant republic, when you get a CoT, you become a Grand Merchant Republic.

    I played a game as Firenze which starts as a merchant republic and in control of a COT in tuscany and never became a grand merchant republic, even after taking venice and genoa... In the end I just wrote my own decision to make it happen.

    In what version? As I recall, It wasn't possible to become a Grand Merchant Republic in 5.0, 5.1 or possibly even 5.2

    Wait, just to clarify; Grand Merchant Republic is different from Merchant Republic, right? or is it the MEIOU name for Merchant Republic.

    IIRC the Grand Merchant Republic is for Merchant Republics with a CoT.


    Also, if you are planning on posting more updates, why not do it in the AAR section?

    Because I value discussion of game mechanics more than the presentation of an After Action Report. Maybe someday I'll start making them, but not today. I'll learn more from the entire pool of EU3 players than those in just the AAR section alone.

    Thinking about it, Tuscany has had its CoT since the game began and they are still just a regular old Merchant Republic. Is the event working as planned?

    Merchant Republics are just regular republics with some trade bonuses. Grand Merchant Republics are the only ones who control trade leagues and can ask for trade rights.

    Yeah, I like these little threads you make in here. I don't really have the time to browse through the AAR section and sift for contents that relate to MEIOU so this is a welcome distraction.

  19. #19
    yeah i agree with that Blxz. Not only that though just by reading this and your other thread you had, you gave me interesting challanges and ideas for games of my own to play, DDR. Btw still don't know how you do all the stuff you do here, i try them and fail miserably all the time, but at least its a fun attempt at it.

    On starving a CoT: When the country is too large to just divert trade away from their CoTs:



    Poland, Aragon and Portugal now need similar treatment.
