Hello everyone and welcome to another development diary about Europa Universalis. This time we have a feature for Common Sens, that is so large that it is spread over two weeks of development diaries. It is how we interact with your subject states.

In the subjects overview screen, there is now an additional button where you can open up an interaction menu with all your subjects.

Today we’ll talk about the tools you have regarding vassals, marches and lesser union partners.

Placate Local Rulers
This can be done on both vassals and marches, and lets you pay prestige (if you have positive prestige), to reduce the liberty desire of that subject by 10%.

Embargo Rivals
This is a toggle you can put on any subject. If it is on they will embargo all your rivals as quickly as their diplomats can travel. However, this increases their liberty desire by 5% while active.

Place Relative on Throne
This can only be done on vassals, and only when they have a regency. You can replace the regency with a ruler from your own dynasty.

Enforce Religion
This can only be done on vassals, unions and marches. This is possible if the subject is in your religious group, have less than 50% of Liberty Desire, and you have positive relations. Of course, this increases Liberty Desire by 50%, so its something you have to evaluate when it is desirable to do.

Scutage
This is a toggle that can be set to on or off on a vassal. When it is on, they will not be called into wars, unless declared war upon. However, they will provide 50% more of its income to you.

Subsidize Armies
This is a toggle in marches, where if on, you will send up to 10% of your manpower to them each month, to fill up their manpower pool.

Fortify March
This allows you to build or upgrade a fort in a march, where you as overlord fronts the build costs.

Enforce Culture
This is the option if you got some diplomatic power to burn. You can swap the primary culture of a lesser union partner to your culture for a power cost, but this is only doable if they are below 50% liberty desire and it will increase it by 50% as well.

Siphon Income
Unions usually do not provide money to their overlord, but history is full of rulers who took from one part of their realm to provide for another. This action lets you take 50% of a lesser union partners yearly income if you have positive relations. It will increase liberty desire by 10% but also reduce relations rather dramatically.

Support Loyalists
Unions don’t have any local ruler that needs to be placated, so instead you have a toggle where you spend 10% of their monthly income each month, while reducing liberty desire by 20% as long as its active.

Next week we’ll talk about protectorates, trade companies and colonial nations, and their unique actions.

So... is Burgundy actually going to be split into unions for the patch, or is this just an easy way to show examples of the new interface? Because I've seen conflicting things about this.

It looks like it's going to be split, but not as bad as the first indications were - looks like we're getting Flanders, Brabant, and Holland PUs (all of which are arguably accurate), and Nevers as a vassal (definitely accurate). It would appear that a swath of territory from Picardy through Luxembourg remains part of Burgundy proper (as is correct, since those areas were purchased or conquered, and not inherited).

How does this affect players?

Awesome changes for subjects. I always finish a game with 5-6 vassals, this will be great to help them develop, put my dynasty on them, etc... :)

Can't wait for changes on protectorates, CNs and Trade Companies.

With so many changes, I'm guessing this is part of the patch and not the DLC?

Can u make it so that if the subjects that have negative relations with the rival having no increase in liberty desire? And what if there are no rivals to embargo but the action is still taken?
Can it be turned off during a war and will the vassal be called in automatically?
Enforce Religion
Enforce Culture
It should have less impact for members of the same Cultural groups and religious groups.
Next week we’ll talk about protectorates, trade companies and colonial nations, and their unique actions.
Protectorates into vassals? Or that can be integrated? Trade Companies that are fully autonomous? And can also be integrated? Or appoint governors in Protectorates for more income and less LD at the cost of high unrest?

Is there any advanatge of getting your own dynasty on a vassals throne? You can't claim a vassals throne and the +10 relation or so for same dynasty aren't that great either

Great changes, will allow one to control the client states too and expands both playability and roleplaying aspects of the game!

Very excited to see colonial nations, protectorates (!) and trade companies (!). We have had very little interactions with the latter two, so this is quiet major.

Interesting, do some of these liberty desire increases go away over time? I mean if I'm Austria and enforce religion on PU Hungery would they still have the +50 liberty desire 100 years later with all land reconverted to Catholic

also will the AI know how to uses these? and can they finally make or at least revolt marches?

Enforce Culture
This is the option if you got some diplomatic power to burn. You can swap the primary culture of a lesser union partner to your culture for a power cost, but this is only doable if they are below 50% liberty desire and it will increase it by 50% as well.
Seems that it costs 100 diplo points
