EU4 - Development Diary - 13th of March 2018

Good day all. We're a mere week away from 1.25 England Update going live and the Rule Britannia Immersion Pack setting sail with it. There's not much left to cover in our dev diaries, so today we will simply be covering the 10 Achievements which will be available in 1.25.

Hmm, this is a fairly sparse Dev Diary from me, jarringly so. Let me bulk it out at the end for my own sanity by plugging that since it's Tuesday, we will be streaming Session 2 of the Rule Britannia Dev Clash. Decide who to root for by looking here:

The new mission system is somehow my personally most anticipated feature since the diplomatic macro builder. Can't wait! Also thx for the regular 10 am Dev Diaries Jake :)

Looks great! The Anglophile mission looks the most interesting with having to complete the whole English/British mission tree. Is Sleepless in Seattle a custom nation one only or possible with all nations by just moving the capital to Seattle?

Is that a new formable nation?

No. The Chola dynasty does rule Cebu at start however (and was supposedly founded by a wayward Chola prince).

Oh for the love of god, no more luck based achievements :mad:

It isn't luck based when you have the anglican church. you can remove an add consorts at will, limited only by your church power.

Cheers for the DD DDRJake (and the Chola-tastic knowledge Trin Tragula!) :D. Looking forward to this, the Brits are my favourite nation to play for a 'chillax' game of EU4 (and by the look of it, the Isle of Mann looks to be a good option for a more challenging run :eek:).

Hmm, this is a fairly sparse Dev Diary from me, jarringly so.

At least mostly made up for with:

Sleepless in Seattle: Have your capital in 2485 (Chehalis) and own 10 Coffee producing provinces.

:)

I was expecting a Diary about the mission System out side of Europe, since how much AI and player Gameplay will be affected there, especially by the permanent bonuses

Hm, I would have thought Salish (Province 874) would be closer to Seattle's location than Chehalis. But, either way, it's nice to have an achievement for the part of the world I live in!

First things first , you could have done better with puns with this achievement package :p. Have you seen the pun-level of the latest HOI4 achievements?

With regards to this :
index.php
Sun Invasion
: Own and have cores on Tepeacac, Mexico, Tullucan and Huastec as the Madyas.

I understand that you have to have personal cores in these (not subject) in these, right? Interesting this is the first achievement that forces you to move your capital to the new world.
