EU4 - Development Diary - 4th of October 2016

Hello everyone! Today is the final development diary before the release of Rights of Man! Which is next week! Actually, its next tuesday even! At 15.00 CET if all goes well.. 1.18 “Prussia” will go live on the steam-servers and you’ll be able to purchase Rights of Man.

So, to wrap up the teasers for this update, we’ll start with yet ANOTHER addition to a previous expansion. In El Dorado, we added advisor portraits for South Americans. Back in those days, advisors were all males.. Now though, we have added a set of female advisors to the South American graphical culture!

In our effort to make the games more user-friendly, or as some say, super-casual, we have now reduced the amount of clicks you need to continue a savegame. Now there is a nice “Continue” button in the launcher, that launchers your latest played game without stopping for a decision in the frontend.

And for those of you who play Hearts of Iron IV, you’ll be aware about the possibility for the game to automatically upload crashdumps to our servers, whenever you start the game after it had crashed before. Of course, this is all voluntary.


1.18 and Rights of Man adds 20 new achievements as well, for those of you that love hunting them.

  • We bled for this - Win a war with at least 1M dead on both sides.
  • Pick Your Poison - As Kaffa, develop in Cafa while a subject of yours owns it..
  • Not just Pizza - Become a Great Power as Naples.
  • All That's Thine Shall Be Mine - As a Greedy ruler, take all of a nation’s ducats in a peace deal
  • A Blessed Nation - As a Coptic Nation, gain all 5 Blessings
  • Queen of Conquest - Conquer land while in a Queen Regency
  • AAA Credit - As a Great Power, take on over 1,000 ducats of another nation’s debt.
  • Hoarder - as a Fetishist nation, have 13 available Cults
  • Gentle Persuasion - Have a Siege Specialist general win a siege in a province with a fort
  • Combined Arms - Have both an Admiral and a General with a trait
  • Cities of Cibola - as Pueblo, own at least seven provinces with 10 development each.
  • Turkish Delight - Start as Candar, and own 20 Sugar provinces between you and your subjects
  • Baa Baa Black Sheep - As Qara Qoyunlu become the leading producer of wool
  • Fanatic Collectivist - Own all Institution Origin provinces.
  • Core-fu - force a nation to revoke 5 cores in one peace deal as Corfu
  • Rozwi Empire - Start as Butua, conquer Mutapa (Zimbabwe and .Lower Zambezi areas)
  • The Sudanese Expedition - Starting as Morocco Conquer the Niger and Sahel Regions
  • A tale of two Families - Starting as Vijayanagar or Bahmanis conquer the other’s capital and have them not exist.
  • Abu Bakr II’s Ambition - Start as Mali and have 4 Colonial Subjects in south America
  • Consulate of the Sea - As Aragon conquer all Mediterranean Centres of Trade




We have tweaked quite alot of national ideas in 1.18, adding new modifiers to them, giving a new fresh feeling. This includes movement speed of armies, fire damage, institution spread and more, and as usual, some countries got new unique national ideas, including Malwa, Pattani, Kaffa, Corfu, Lorraine and Wurzburg.


Here is a quick look at the national ideas of Malwa.

Traditions: +3 Tolerance of Heathen and -10% Infantry Cost.
  1. Rajputs of Malwa : +15% Manpower
  2. Nimatnama : +25% Religious Unity & +0.5 Yearly Prestige
  3. Surat-Delhi Route: +10% Trade Efficiency
  4. Fortified Strongholds: +20% Defensiveness
  5. Black Soil: +10% Goods Produced
  6. Reliance of Jain Bankers: -0.1 Yearly Inflation
  7. Malwa Opium: +10% Province Trade Power

Ambition: +1 Accepted Cultures


And for those of you that play multiplayer. 1.18, will now give the option of making a player that drops totally brain-dead until he or she can reconnect.

Next week, we go live on the tuesday, so there won’t be a development diary that day!



And don't miss today's Weekly Developer Multiplayer Clash! 15:00CEST on https://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive.


The stream will, as always, be available to watch later through either the Twitch VOD archive. Or through our Paradox Extra Youtube channel where you can find (pretty much) all our previous streams!

I still want to know, how protectorates work in 1.18... And also how reforming government as horde works. I think you didn't talk about these things until now.

Would it be possible to get a look at the new national ideas before launch?
