Also, why are there no icons for Res Publica yet?
I got the patch to 1.7, but the DLC is not available yet on steam. I signed out and signed in again, but it is not there.
Just bought it. :)
About the Truce discussion: Why not add a policy, that reduces truce time by x%? :) E.g. by 33% so it's max 10 years, because you only can remove policies after 10 years. So the player is able to take some influence on the truce time, if he wishes so.

- Merchant Republics are now very difficult to diplovassalize.
- Can now diplovassalize without having a royal marriage.

Very nice!

“New Achievement: Vasa or Wettin?”

I know this was a bit historical, the struggle between Vasa and Wettin for the Polish throne, but Wilhelm Wettin and Gustavus II Adolphus Vasa are two of the main characters of the alternative history book series "1632". Coincidence? Never!
this changes in game design you call "game balancing" will certainly not bring me back and certainly will not mean some money for your DLC's.

good luck next time with maybe better game design then you showed in EU IV.
Hm. Existing saves appear to have naval ideas translated into the military branch of naval ideas, rather than into maritime ideas, which I rather assumed would be the case.

I would add/suggest to add reduction of truce as an espionage action that come from espionage idea...
Though I don't know what to replace...

EDIT: I wrote it as espionage bonus instead of espionage action
