If you say that Genoa AI can suffer if treated as liege for a long time, well we can leave it with the three vassalizations already suggested, the 1421 encircling until 1435, the French invasion in 1500 and the rise of Andrea Doria in 1528.
These seems alright.
Don't worry about Milan, it should not usually be able to annex Genoa in the current set-up (Liguria with CoT and perhaps one province in the Black sea).
Regarding MA, it is out of our hands. The AI will have to manage that problem, and it usually does relatively well.

Add them to PRO262006. By the way, the reason for having events on the 2nd of June and the 3rd of June is because vassalization events cannot be triggered from within independence events, right? It makes me nervous to have them just one day appart. Have you tested them at extremely fast speed? because at that speed some days appear to be skipped and in that case the sleep command might not work properly. If that is a problem, you could make the second set of events take place a few days later for safety.
Not only to PRO262006, but also to PRO262009 action_B if Naples isn't released as vassal PRO262006 can't fire...
The sequence was not tested yet, as I had not much time to play EU2 in last weeks... :(
If days are skipped we need to rework all the fixes made in vassal-breakvassal thread. The last one is my correction on "the War of Succession in Mantua" event sequence! :eek:

Fodoron said:
I agree with Norrefeldt that vassalizations are very disruptive, and in the case of Genoa would make it almost unplayable if all are represented. One to France is representative, and should be for less than ten years (9.9 is ok).
As you can see, the problem with my events about Genoa's submission to France is that it can happen between 1500 and 1512.
I think we could add a Genoese event triggered by my modified FRA12025 in post no. 4 in which Genoa breaks vassalage from France.
Of course that event surely happens, if Genoa is vassalized by event!->FRA has province 389 (lombardia).

As for vassalization periods, apart from 1421-1435 under Milan, 1500-1512 under France, or a 1515-1528 under François Ier (in eu2 1519-1528 9.9 years!) if agreed, and after 1528 under Spain, we could add:
a 1464-1476 vassalization to Milan since the Genoese monarchs is Galeazzo Maria.
That vassalization event should be done as a the final event of the sequence starting with the 1458 Napolitan event (NAP7118) in which Ferdinando I becomes king and Jean d'Anjou tries to conquer the kingdom of Naples as I stated in post no. 138
Don't know about adding GEN,PRO, MLO and PAP events if they improve or waste the game... -> I was referring to Jean of Anjou who was also Governor of Genoa in 1458-1461 on behalf of Charles VII.
(if not a a proper vassalization to France or Provence we can just improve relations with FRA or PRO and create an alliance with PRO: although it is impossible to realize since alliance are managed by AI!)

As for the 1488-1500 vassalization to Milan an event isn't really needed since the monarch for that period of time is Agostino Adorno, even if IRL he was a Milanese governor.

We need to remember also that Genoa related random events about revolts included in "Random_National.eue" are fired from 1419 to 1560 (or 1528 if GEN174009_action_A is chosen) when:
Code:
trigger = {
		NOT = {
			OR = {
				year = 1560
				flag =  constitutional_reforms
				vassal = { country = MLO country = GEN }
				vassal = { country = FRA country = GEN }
			}
		}
	}

Last time I checked action_a of PRO262009 slept PRO262006, so if added to action_b of PRO262009 and to PRO262006, then it would happen twice, but I might be wrong :wacko:

Regarding days skipped at extremely fast, I know that it happens occasionally with the reminder of DP's, so it should at least be tested. I always try to leave some extra days between events, just in case.

IMHO one vassalization to Milan, another to France and a third one to Spain in a little over 100 years should be plenty to give an idea of the state of affairs in Genoa. It reaches a point where accuracy gets on the way of gaming. However if you consider that two vassalizations to Milan are essential, I am prepared to concede.
Indeed, too many events that have no clear importance get in the way. I am not sure for example about the Novara events. Rarely the end of a ruler is represented by event, and the effects of those events are really minor, so the question becomes, why have them? However if Milan has few events then it is better to have them. I wish we had those events for most out-of-Europe nations, however I voted against Morosini's cat in Venice.

Genoa vassal to Milan in 1464-1476: the GEN breakvassal event together with a revolt in province 402 (emilia) would be triggered by a MLO event about the assassination of Galeazzo in 1476. That was my idea! But we can discuss it another time in Italy thread...

I have modelled the Novara event on the "Francis is captured" FRA event... and since Milan has events almoust only in 1419-1535 timespan...

I suggest also to change from Specific_PRO_events:

Code:
#Naples is secured!#
event = {
	id = 262024
	trigger = {	owned = { province = 393 data = -1 } #Napoli
			owned = { province = 394 data = -1 } #Apulia
	}
	random = no
	country = PRO
	name = "EVENTNAME262024"
	desc = "EVENTHIST262024"

	date = { day = 1 month = january year = 1472 }
	offset = 100
	[COLOR=Yellow]deathdate = { day = 10 month = july year = 1480 }[/COLOR] 

	action_a ={ #Excellent!
		name = "ACTIONNAME3304A"
		command = { type = addcore which = 393 } #Napoli
		command = { type = addcore which = 394 } #Apulia
		command = { type = addcore which = 395 } #Messina
		command = { type = addcore which = 396 } #Sicily
		command = { type = relation which = ARG value = -50 }
		command = { type = relation which = PAP value = 50 }
	}
}
EVENTNAME262024;Naples is secured!;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTHIST262024;Following years of struggle with local nobles and with Aragon over Naples the resurgence seems to have calmed. Naples is finally ours and now we can attempt to press our claims to Sicily, ruled by usurpers of the House of Trastamara in spite of the treaty of Caltabellotta stipulated in 1302 between the Angevins and the Aragonese to put an end to the Sicilian Vespers war started in 1282. By that treaty by which Frederick III was recognized king of Trinacria for his lifetime, and was to marry Eleanor d'Anjou, the daughter of Charles II of Naples, at his death the kingdom was to revert to the Angevins and his children would receive compensation elsewhere. In 1337 Frederick died and in spite of the peace of Caltabellotta his son Peter II of Sicily succeeded. Since then Sicily firmly remained in Aragonese hands. Now it is time to get back what is ours by God's will!;;;;;;;;;;


adding the cores...
as consequence to modified PRO262009 and PRO262006 and my future events about Jean of Anjou trying to reconquer Naples...

and as necessary condition to the PRO events about the Royal residence and to the fact that Sicily can be claimed since the treaty of Caltabellotta stipulated in 1302 stated the restitution of Sicily to the Angevins as soon as the Aragonese King would died. But Sicily was never claimed since then...why not now!?

EVENTNAME174031;The French suzerainity;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTNAME262008;The Expedition of Jean d'Anjou;;;;;;;;;;

EVENTHIST174031;Although the Treaty of Lodi stipulated in 1545 guaranteed a certain balance of powers in Italy, it couldn't prevent Alfonso I King of Naples from pursuing his old interests on Genoese territories, notably Corsica, and West Mediterranean seatrade routes. Since the confederates of Lega Italica, notably Milan, wouldn't risk to break that fragile alliance, and that some Genoese families, Adorno and Fieschi amongst them, clearly showed their support to the Aragonese, King Alfonso was a real threat for Genoa and the Fregoso family. In 1458, facing a new Aragonese aggression Genoa could find help in France only as it already occurred in the past. Charles VII, King of France, accepted the Genoese allegiance to the crown by sending to Genoa Jean d'Anjou, Duke of Calabria and son of René d'Anjou. As soon as he established himself as Governor of Genoa and with the support of the Genoese fleet, Jean d'Anjou arranged an expeditionary force to lead personally with the aim of taking possess of the crown of Naples, his father René already failed to do years before. But this time the political situation in Naples played in his favour: the local barons opposed Ferdinando, Alfonso's natural son, as the new King of Naples and invited Jean d'Anjou to intervene...;;;;;;;;;;

ACTIONNAME174031A;Help the Duke of Calabria;;;;;;;;;;

as consequence of this expedition:
if it fails as it was historically-> GEN should submit to Milan (1464-1499 vassalization except the time span 1478-1488 ).


The events concerning the vassalization of Genoa have been posted in Italy thread!

EDIT: What about an Albanian event, trigger: monarch Skanderbeg and event 262008, ALB will have CB against PRO and GEN for 24 months, worse relations to them and better relations to NAP?

EVENTHIST211006;With the extinction of the senior branch of the Angevins that previously ruled in Anjou, Provence, Lorraine and Naples the cadet branch of the House of Anjou-Lorraine has risen to power. It is now a question if we should take up the mantle.;;;;;;;;;;

#-#

FOR CONSISTENCY, should we maybe add cores 393 and 394 to the "reworked" 1423-event PRO262011 named "Naples remains Angevin" or 1435-event PRO262005 named "The Angevin Inheritance of Naples" as it was in the previous sequence???

OTHERWISE if we decide to remove cores in PRO events in 1423 or in 1435, we should

- change (not/) owned Napoli with (not/) event = 262024 # PRO Naples secured! in (LOR211006/) LOR211007 "trigger conditions"
- remove addcore 393 and 394 from LOR211006 action _A,
- let it stay as it is, since event PRO262024 (Naples is secured!) gives cores if PRO owns Napoli or Apulia and, most of all, these LOR events are only for human player already playing ahistorically...

what do we prefer?

I have made modifications to posts 154 (independence of Savoy) and 167 (Naples is secured, Provence takes more cores...):

a-Now the independence of Savoy can be with both core provinces seceded, I hope!

b-As for Naples is secured I have changed the deathdate to 10 july 1480, when René II died and also in order to be finetuned with the Lorraine events posted before...

#-#

I have also improved (I hope! :) ) the sequences of "The Succession in Naples" 1419-1464:

in post no. 76 "Crisis in Rome and in Naples",
in post no. 105 "Queen's choice and Succession in Naples",
in post no. 106 "Viscontis about-face",
in post no. 108 "The Pope of Peniscola", already submitted!
in post no. 138 "The will of Alfons",
in post no. 145 "The Battle over Naples",
in post no. 167 "The Expedition of Jean d'Anjou".

Now working at 1485-1494 time span: NAP, PAP, MLO, FRA... ;)

EVENTNAME251042;The baronal allegiance to the Pope;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTHIST239020;Because of his distrustfulness of the barons, Ferdinando was pursuing a policy aimed at strengthening royal authority at the expense of them, that attitude brought him to have many enemies amongst the nobles of the Kigdom. In 1485, when his son, Alfonso Duke of Calabria, decided to revoke all the privileges that granted the city of Aquila a certain political autonomy towards the Kigdom, arresting the local nobles and occupying the city with his troops, the city magistrates refused to submit to him chasing the Neapolitan troops away and asking Pope Innocentius VIII for help and protection. The Pope, already put out by the fact that King Ferdinando didn't pay the 'chinea' (the annual tribute a Neapolitan fief has to give to the Pope as suzerain), accepted to help by sending troops to Aquila. In a rally immediately arranged in Melfi to discuss about Alfonso's aggression to Aquila, the nobles led by Antonello Petrucci, Count of Policastro and Francesco Coppola, Count of Sarno, King's ministers and by Antonello Sanseverino, Prince of Salerno, all hostile to the Aragonese rule, agreed to revolt against the King, who in the meanwhile refused to come to terms with them and confirm their feudal privileges. The revolt resulted in a civil war by which both Papal and Neapolitan territories were systematically devastated by the contending armies. On 11 august 1486 a permanent truce was eventually signed between Ferdinando, the Pope and the rebelling nobles, The King of Naples promised to pay the tribute due to the Church, to forgive the unfaithful barons and to assign Aquila under the Papal suzerainity.;;;;;;;;;;

Sanseverino managed to escape and take refuge in France at the royal court, instead the arrested nobles were horrendously tortured before being executed. In january 1487 during a wedding-feast arranged in Castel Nuovo (aka Maschio Angioino) in Naples, the King completed his fierce personal retaliations. He deceitfully invited the nobles who had taken part in the baronal revolts with the aim to have them all arrested, then after arguable trials all the nobles were sentenced to death. Rumours had that some of them were simply closed in bags and thrown in the sea, leaving no traces. As a last macabre act, Ferdinando ordered that corpses of the conspirators should be mummified and then permanently exposed in the Castel Nuovo as a warning to all the Neapolitan subjects. The break of the truce indeed displeased the Pope who didn't even receive the city of Aquila as previously agreed. Innocentius VIII will proclaim the vacancy of the throne of Naples.;;;;;;;;;;

A political marriage was arranged to strengthen the relations between the ducal court of Milan and the royal court of Naples between the Duke of Milan, Gian Galeazzo and Isabella d'Aragona, granddaughet of Ferrante, King of Naples. The ceremony took place in 1488 in Naples but the wedding was confirmed in Milan only the following year.;;;;;;;;;;

EVENTNAME239016;Isabella's complaints;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTHIST239016;Isabella, daughter of Alfonso Duke of Calabria and spouse of the Duke of Milan, Gian Galeazzo Sforza, was getting annoyed by the situation she was facing at the ducal court of Milan. Ludovico il Moro acted as regent of Milan in spite of his nephew's come of age and Beatrice d'Este, il Moro's wife, availed herself of her position as mistress of the ducal court surrounding herself with learned men, poets and artists and due to her education and political ability she took part in the ducal policies too. Isabella, member of a royal dynasty, couldn't accept to renounce the right to rule in Milan and nevertheless to play a second role at the ducal court. She then complained to her father Alfonso, Duke of Calabria, about her segregation in the ducal court and asked for an immediate political or military intervention in favour of her husband Gian Galeazzo, who dared not to retake his legitimate power. By this, Alfonso, Ferrante's son and future King of Naples, had the occasion for pressing his claims to the throne of Milan, which Filippo Maria, the last Duke of the Viscontis, seemingly promised to his grandfather, Alfonso I, before death caught him in 1447 and the war for succession in Milan started.;;;;;;;;;;

EVENTNAME228025;Il Moro sends for Charles VIII;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTHIST228025;After the death of Lorenzo de' Medici, occurred on 8 April 1492, no Italian prince seemed to be able to keep on pursuing a constant balance of powers between the major Italian states. Florence, ruled by a foolish Piero de' Medici, was shifting his political attitude towards Naples at the expenses of Milan, so that Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, quite paranoiacly, abandoned the old league formed with strain by il Magnifico between Florence, Naples and Milan as to counterbalance Venice and Rome and signed on 22 April 1493 an Act of Confederation with the new Pope Alexander VI inviting Venice to join in. Ferrante I of Naples replied officially pressing Ludovico to resign from his regency of Milan since Gian Galeazzo Sforza, il Moro's nephiew and Duke of Milan had already come of age and able to rule the duchy alone. Ferrante threatened to declare Ludovico an usurper, and Ludovico decided to bring a bigger threat over Ferrante's head. Charles’ ambitions to claim the Angevin throne of Naples were well known to Ludovico Sforza who, convinced to definitely solve his problems with the King of Naples, sent his ambassadors, the Count of Belgioioso and the Count of Caiazzo, to speak to the great lords of the Royal Council of France convincing them of the legality of Charles VIII’s claim to the Kingdom of Naples, of the weakness of the Neapolitan armies, and of the glory the conquest of Naples would bring to France, once a crusade to liberate the Holy Land was in planning. At the same time, some Neapolitan exiles in France, amongst them Antonello Sanseverino, who escaped the baronal persecutions in Naples in 1487, assured that the Neapolitan people would have agreed on a French intervention. Most of the great lords of the Royal Council were against an attack on Naples, seeing it as very expensive and very dangerous and most of all senseless. But the young Charles VIII, who was carried away by a thirst for glory and a desire to conquer the Kingdom of Naples, paid very little attention to their arguments and heard instead the advice of his own advisors, many of them already corrupted by the money and promises of il Moro's emissaries with the lure of getting land and estates in the Kingdom of Naples and ecclesiastical positions from the Pope. Finally, after several days’ debate, Charles VIII signed a secret agreement with il Moro’s ambassadors, by which it was agreed that Charles VIII would send an army to invade the Kingdom of Naples and Milan would provide troops, money and free passage.;;;;;;;;;;

EVENTNAME12021;The Angevin inheritance of Naples;;;;;;;;;;6534
EVENTHIST3105;Charles VIII, King of France, was a throwback as he still lived lost in a world of chivalry. He clearly had a grand design, probably inspired by the Spanish Reconquista and the rise of the Ottoman Turks, of a crusade versus the infidels and the recapture of Jerusalem, the capital city of Christendom. He based his plan on a nebulous claim through the testament in which Charles IV Duke of Anjou bequeathed Louis XI, his cousin and Charles' father, the inheritance of Naples and the subsequent title of King of Sicily. His ambitions were well known to the Duke of Milan who, convinced to solve his problems with the King of Naples, sent his ambassadors, the Count of Belgioioso and the Count of Caiazzo, to speak to the great lords of the Royal Council of France about the legality of Charles VIII’s claim to the Kingdom of Naples, about the weakness of the Neapolitan armies, and about the glory the conquest of Naples would bring to France. In the meanwhile some Neapolitan exiles in France, amongst them Antonello Sanseverino, who escaped the baronal persecutions in Naples in 1487, assured that the Neapolitan people would have agreed on a French intervention. Most of the great lords of the Royal Council were against an attack on Naples, seeing it as very expensive and very dangerous and argued that Charles VIII was too inexperienced to fight a war and that his advisors were weak and foolish to trust il Moro, known all over Italy for his treachery. But the young Charles VIII, who was carried away by a thirst for glory and a desire to conquer the Kingdom of Naples, paid very little attention to their arguments and heard instead the advice of his own advisors, many of them already corrupted by the money and promises of il Moro's emissaries with the lure of getting land and estates in the Kingdom of Naples and ecclesiastical positions from the Pope. Finally, after several days’ debate, Charles VIII signed a secret agreement with il Moro’s ambassadors, by which it was agreed that Charles VIII would send an army to invade the Kingdom of Naples and Milan would provide men, money and free passage. To have his hands free in Italy, Charles made ruinous pacts with all his neighbours, so they would not interfere. A large sum of money was given to Henry VII of England while the Roussillon was given to Ferdinand King of Aragon and the counties of Artois and Franche Comté were ceded to Maximilian I King of the Romans and regent of Burgundy, thus sacrificing essential territories to the strategic defence of France for his chivalric dream.;;;;;;;;;;7980

EVENTHIST17409;After the death of Duke Charles Ier who had made in his whole life all possible efforts to free Savoy of the strong French political interference, the duchy was thrown again into chaos since the successor to the throne of Chambéry, Duke Charles II, was still a minor (he became Duke when he was only 8 months old!) and a planned Charles VIII's military campaign in Italy was rumoured. The Duke's mother, Bianca of Montferrat, had temporarily assumed the regency of the duchy due to her son's under age, but the presence of different factions that sought and received some support from the French King, contributed to the political instability of Savoy as to establish de facto a sort of French protectorate. Being Savoy still an imperial fief, Maximilian I King of the Romans and future Holy Roman Emperor tried to get the Savoyard allegiance in order to drive the French out of Italy. The strategic position of Savoy would put the ducal independence at risk, leaving the country in anarchy until the end of the Italian wars in which Savoy, historically drifted into the French orbit, gained complete independence only in 1559 when the treaty of Cateau-Cambrésis was signed between France and Spain.;;;;;;;;;;8556

EVENTNAME12022;Charles VIII presses claims on Naples;;;;;;;;;;6533
EVENTHIST12022;The French claim on the throne of Naples was unpopular with many of the Italian states, nevertheless, they were all cowed at first by the fierce conduct of war of the French army and by the powerful artillery Charles VIII had at disposal. However King Ferdinando of Naples sought the diplomatic way, asking Charles VIII for the renewal of the treaties he had previously stipulated with Louis XI and to eventually submit the controversy to the Pope's high decision. As a clear answer to that his ambassadors were just ordered to leave France immediately. Then Ferrante managed to reconcile with Pope Alexander VI and that made Ludovico Sforza so suspicious as to request again an immediate French intervention in the Kingdom of Naples. On 25 January 1494 Ferdinando died and his son Alfonso succeeded to the throne. The first successful Alfonso's political act was the stipulation of an alliance with Piero de' Medici and Pope Alexander VI who, fearing the French himself, legitimated him as the new King of Naples. Once the French King begun the invasion of Naples and without any withstand the Abruzzi preferred to show allegiance to the Charles VIII, while Alfonso didn't want to face the aggression and abdicated in favour of his son Ferrandino who, instead, arranged for resistance. While the French army did show its fierceness in Italy by slaughtering and pillaging the villages that didn't want to pay hommage in their triumphal march towards Naples, no army seemed to be able to cope with the invaders and instead of opposing the French, deals were made as to avoid battle. Facing with a disbanding army and with a turmoil that broke out in the city of Naples, Ferrandino had no other choice than to flee and let the kingdom to the invaders' mercy. On 22 february 1495 Charles VIII King of France entered the city of Naples distributing money to the populace who gave a warm welcome to the Valois. As a French diplomat, Philippe de Commynes, wrote in his Memoires, the French King took 4 months and 19 days only to go from Asti to Naples, an ambassador would take just a little less. Since Charles VIII didn't face any enemy army, it was said he had conquered Italy simply with 'wooden spurs' and a 'chalk' used to assign lodgings to his troops.;;;;;;;;;;8812

EVENTNAME297018;Florentine fear;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTHIST297018;On the approach of the French in 1494, Piero de' Medici, son and successor of Lorenzo, had suffered a loss of nerve and had left the city to negotiate with Charles VIII. He extracted a promise from the French king to respect the freedom of the city, but only in return for handing over some of the most important fortresses protecting Florentine territory. When the news of this arrangement reached the city, it aroused a great wave of anger and resentment. Piero, forgetting the lessons of his ancestors, had already made himself unpopular by his arrogance and his flaunting of his position. The consequence was an uprising that drove out Piero and his rule and restored a more popular government. The new government admitted the French to the city, and some tense negotiations took place, in which the Florentines feared that Charles would try to restore Piero and become their master. The determination of the citizens to resist these demands, by arms if need be, so impressed Charles that he did not press them, but departed leaving the city its freedom. He held on to the fortresses, including Pisa, which had thrown off Florentine rule at the approach of the French. To regain Pisa was a passion with Florence, and the hope of doing so with French help was one reason why Florence made an alliance with France and stuck to it faithfully during the next few years.;;;;;;;;;;

EVENTNAME170040;The French King in Naples;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTNAME326035;The Anti-French League of Venice;;;;;;;;;;
EVENTHIST170040;The easy way with which Charles VIII of France conquered the Kingdom of Naples scared the Italian princes, who in a way or in another had permitted the French King to reach his target undisturbed. Venice and Florence were worried about a French hegemony in the peninsula since the French military presence wasn't limited to Southern Italy but also to some villages in strategic positions in Tuscany and Papal States, that surrendered to Charles VIII in his march towards Naples and were very important to the French military supply line. The Pope too, who previously granted the French King military access through the Papal territories and his stay in Rome, felt in jeopardy as to refuse Charles VIII being proclaimed King of Naples and King Ferdinand of Aragon didn't accept the French presence in a kingdom where he instead, in spite of Alfons V's testament which assigned it to the other Trastamara branch, could be the one to have claims. The Duke of Milan, who decisively affected Charles VIII's decision to invade in Italy, was now alarmed by the presence of French reserve troops deployed in the county of Asti, very close to Milan and at the order of the Duke of Orléans, who could easily press his claims to the Milanese throne. Venice, Milan, the Pope, Spain and the Holy Roman Empire, so firmly opposed to the French expansionism as to join any Anti-French alliance available, formed consequently an Anti-French league in Venice on 31 March 1495. Florence preferred to stay out due to her internal problems caused by Charles VIII' invasion and supported France instead. Having heard about those arrengements and fearing that the confederates would cut his army off the supply line from France, Charles VIII decided to come back to France for reinforcements and left a regent in Naples. He had to move his army quickly through the Appennines as to reach the Alps and then safety, but the presence of heavy artilleries and carriages, transporting the big loot accumulated throughout Italy, slowed his march down. In the Po valley, near Fornovo on the Taro river, he was intercepted by the confederates who blocked the passage to the Alps. For the first time, since he invaded Italy, Charles VIII eventually faced an enemy army and in spite of losing all the carriages in the battle which resulted in a stalemate, Charles VIII managed to reach his Kingdom unharmed.;;;;;;;;;;

Next events will be about:

1499 Louis XII invades Milan, current event modded, CB 150 to MLO, triggers PAP, MLO events
1500-1508 Il Moro captured, FRA, MLO, HEL events (reworked sequence, different from the posted one!)
1500-1512 if MLO doesn't exists or lombardia owned by France, Genoa submits to France: either vassal or allied
1500-15?? treaty of Granada: SPA FRA NAP events to split Naples if FRA ownes Milan.

and then

-as for the League of Cambrai we need to rework the sequence, since it wasn't the Pope to form the League historically, but Empire (Venice blocked the passage to the future Empero in his way to Rome to be crowned) and France and since Julius II had to face Venice for Papal possessions in Romagna he joined the League together with Spain, Mantua and Ferrara. Florence AFAIK never took part even if an event is currently in the game. But I have to check!)
-as for the Holy League we need to modify the triggers, since they rarely let the event to be fired and add a Papal core on Emilia 402 in action_A. In the new map a further temporary core should be added to Ferrara or Modena or both of them!


1512 French withdrawal from Milan, current event modded, action_A released MLO triggered MLO and GEN events (both breakvassal from FRA) action_B RR for all Italian possessions
1512 HEL event if Milan is independent (territorial gains)
1515 François Ier invades Milan, the battle of Marignano, CB to MLO
1519-1525 HAB (releasing MLO if owned), MLO, SPA and FRA events about French meddling in Italy (with a Spanish core on Lombardia and MLO vassal!) expanded sequence from original SPA event about it!
1525 François Ier is captured, the battle of Pavia, current event modded
1527 Sack of Rome, current event modded, trigger conditions removed since FRA cores were removed! (maybe we need to create a League of Cognac event but it is not so necessary as the "sack" event could mention it in the descriptions as well as in FRA, HAB, ENG and SPA current related events...)
1529 treaty of Barcelona the current for SPA and a new one for PAP (adding 402 as core province like in the Holy League)
1529 the Peace of Cambrai, current event modded
1530 Congress of Bologna (coronation of Charles V) for SPA (releasing ALL Italian Minors as Gattinara's advise and seceding Emilia to the Pope) and PAP
1535-1545 fantasy FRA event: Peace in Milan, current event modded, if France has Milan and the peace of Cambrai hasn't happened, France receives a core on Milan (like PRO or LOR if a human plays with them)and all Italian possessions have RR reduced (remember 1512_B! and French Naples)
1535-1544 Devolution of Milan to the Empire: action_A triggers Imperial governors in Milan and vassalization to SPA->but FRA event CB to SAV, SPA and MLO
action_B independence (breakvassal from SPA, FRA or HAB) triggers a SPA event for retaliation
1535-1544 FRA and TUR events about the French-Turkish alliance if Milan is vassal to SPA or 389 (lombardia) in owned by Spain
1549 if in 1535 action_A was chosen, Milan (if it already exists!) is eventually inherited by Spain by a SPA event...

that is what I have planned so far! :)
I hope not to have forgotten something as it is much to work on book research and most of all on descriptions in English language... ;)

Don't know about adding events on the treaty of Blois (FRA and VEN: it could be added in Louis XII invades Milan as a triggered VEN in action_A) and n the treaty of Lion/Noyon (FRA and SPA) ...

As you have seen I mean to grant independence to Milan in two occasions, in 1512 and in 1530 (since SPA has a core on it!) so François Ier can invade Italy without using a core on Milan as in current game. We need just a tweak in AI hitlists...

Fodoron, where art thou?

I support all events for posts 171 and 172 with the following reservations

event 12021, I do not like the vassal, better is a relation command.

And due to the issues with the SPA DA POR problems, I feel that relations have a huge bearing on nations ability to DA others much too quickly.
so with this in mind,
if all the positive relations commands ( that are over +30) for those events be changed to +30 , I will be much appreciated.

My sources say that Savoy was a sort of French protectorate and nobody actually ruled there until 1497 whe Philippe II the Landless recovered the duchy, but maybe we can avoid a possible DA. Please notice that I have posted some events about the independence of Savoy in the peace of Cateau-Cambrésis...

You say, with the new AI planned for agceep max relation should be only +30? Isn't that too little in a -200 to +200 range?

Maybe for better understanding we should fix those parameters...

these are my ideas about "the way to see the relations" :

1-good relations like treaties or agreements: from +25 to +50
2-relation boost instead of alliance: from +50 to +100
3-risks of DA or enduring peace: more then +100
4-bad relations like betrayals or switching sides: from -25 to -50
5-bad relations with CB: from -50 to -100
6-provoked (generally historical) wars: more then -100


any suggestions!?

You do realise that event #12037 will only fire once.
Maybe should I add to SPA285078 the trigger condition: if France doesn't own 389 and 393 and some good relation in FRA170021 and SPA285078 action_A to each other ? That can be more balanced, IMO.

P.S.: I am going to amend the Charles VIII sequence: removing Savoy as vassal and lowering relations even if I need some standards as I have already said before...

EDIT: another problem, should FRA170021 and SPA285078 have event FRA12037 has trigger condition? In that case only action_A should be available...

I hope to receive some replies on this BEFORE I submit my events to the HC for further times... ;)

Good idea.

Amended post 154 about independence of Savoy from France/Spain:
removed ALL province RRs, since they aren't historically proved unfortunately ... :eek:o
Good. My only remaining comment is to remove exclamation marks when there are more than one option, otherwise the log will read:
"France went with Independence denied! in The Independence of Savoy." Much nicer without the "!".

In regards to relations, you have so many positive relations that the level of +200 will be reached very quickly. Will it have a bearing on other planned future events??

Will it cause DA's due to having it sit on +200 for so long between certain nations. I think you can only answer that with tests.
