changing state religion with Aztec

Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

I thought that by changing religion I would have been given the new religion tech expenses.
That is , playing with Aztec , I was hoping that by saying "yes" to the opportunity to change religion from pagan to catholic my cost for say level 3 infrastructure would have decreased from 200,000 to something like...20,000 ?Instead nothing of the sort happened , indeed I wasn't even given the promised conversion of my 4 starting provinces. So what's the point in switching state religion if you are not given the switch in tech group ?

Are you playing the vanilla game or a mod?
In any case the american nations tech research suffers not only from pagan but from whiteman penalty and from isolation penalty.

If you are playing the vanilla game and got the "Catholic Influence in Central America" event, it should have switched your tech group to African (a 60% penalty instead of your original 80%).

Switching religions also makes Europeans much less likely to declare war on you, and it gives you an extra 2 colonists, 2 diplomats, and 1 missionary per year.

Considering I have 80 pagan provinces to convert with an average success chance of 25% and costs inflated by population growth and 70% inflation plus a badboy of 25 I can hardly call 2 more colonists etc a bargain.I hoped the event could give the chance to reduce the tech gap and allow me to contact other nations etc. but if this is all it's useless as well as continuing the game.
Was playing vanilla on normal diff and the year is 1684 btw.

If you have a badboy of 25 and 80 pagan provinces it´s your own fault. Read the BB FAQ to learn how to expand and grow without gaining massive amounts of BB:

You can use the cheat codes if you want to have the Aztecs play like any other nation:

However that robs them the game of one of it´s uniquie features and is a bit paradox - normally one would play the Aztecs for a challenge against overwhelming european onslaught and not expect it to become a cakewalk.
