I have two questions. Is it possible to edit a saved game and turn colonist size from 200 to 400? If not, which button brings down the cheat menu and lets you type "colonists"?
I'm guessing that you either changed religion from Catholic to Protestant or Reformed, which seems the most likely culprit, or else lost several Centers of Trade in wars, which I find hard to believe. A war against a Horde will also give you a boost in colonists per year, so getting a province adjacent to a Horde and prolonging the war for a decade (occupy the province, but don't colonize it) is another way of gaming the system for more colonists, without using the console. Ending the war will obviously remove the bonus, so that's another possible reason for the decrease. Then there's Cultural Assimilation, and forced assimilation costs you 0.5 colonists per year until the province converts (after an average of 50 years).All I was getting was 1.5 colonists a year, I lost some factor that gave me 1.0 extra a year.
MEIOU definitely adds events, adjusts game mechanics, and does a lot more than just playing with the flag and map colors. It's been several years since I ran it, so I can't recall what that particular mod did, but it wasn't just cosmetic by a long shot. Ultimately, however, I ended up back playing the vanilla game.I would like to ask is MEIOU an eye candy mod or does it put out any increased depth to the game? I mean MM was considered the mod of all mods for EU3
