This mod came out of some EEP discussions. The idea is to ensure that everyone gets the Dutch revolts, so if you have been pulling your hair out because the Danes get away with owning the Netherlands, here's your solution!
I'd appreciate comments on the EEP thread about this.
Readme (so far)
Readme Dutch Revolts
This is a very simple mod. To use, go to the folder "eu2/db" on your hard drive. In North America default installation this will be "C:Program Files/Strategy First/EU2/db". I believe that in other version it is "C:Program Files/EU2/db". Unzip the file there.
This mod changes files for all your games so back up before installing. Alternatively you can rename the following files (nothing else will be affected)
The mod should work with EEP or AGC if the files are installed in the correct directory, but it WILL overwrite all events for Burgundy, England, France, Austria, and Spain with the default Paradox events. You might not want this to happen. To adapt it for use with full AGC or EEP you'll have to remove the Dutch revolt events from those files by hand.
The mod makes the following changes:
-Eliminates the Dutch revolts from all event files in which they currently exist.
-Adds a file that copies over these events to events based on ownership of provinces.
Basically this is equivalent to every single country having the Dutch revolts in their event file.
-Changes the triggers for the Dutch revolts to exclude all Dutch Minors
-Changes the event that forces a country to cede provinces to the new Dutch Republic so that protestants and reformed are not excluded. However countries forced to cede provinces will get a CB on the Dutch. (This helps the
Netherlands form when the low countries are overun by protestants).
-Changes the revolt dates for Luxemburg and Flanders so that they cannot form from the Dutch Revolts
-Changes the Repatriation of the Netherlands so that you only get the good effects if the Netherlands never forms. If the Netherlands did form the revolt risk goes away and that's all.
-Adds events for Spain, Austria France and Burgundy so that they lose their shields on the Northern Netherlands if they cannot hold onto one of the provinces in that region, and adds events to do the same for the Southern Netherlands.
None of this is supported by Paradox and they are not responsible for the contents of this download. Use at your own risk. But do let me know if it isn't working so I can fix it. Right now I'm using the text for the Spanish events, so that will look a bit strange.
edit: Apparently there may be an ID conflict with the beta patch. I'm only testing with the released version, so beware if you use the beta.
And that's all.
