Various notes

AI choosing actions:

Note that the number of actions is now only limited by the size of your screen.

Normal: works like it used to work in EU2. With x actions, the first one has 8500/(85+5(x-1)) % chance to be picked, every following action then gets 500/(85+5(x-1)) % chance.

Random: every action has the same chance to be picked. With x actions, there is 100/x % for each action.

Historical: regardless of the number of actions, the first one has 100 % chance to be picked, the following ones have 0 %.


AI chances: if every action has an ai_chance set, the above rules are ignored and each action has (100*ai_chance)/(sum of ai_chances) % to be picked.



Triggers for actions and commands:

Each action and each command may now have a specific trigger that will prevent the entire action or the single command to be displayed if it's not fulfilled.

Should look like this for actions (from DoK):
Code:
    action = {
        name = "Good"
        trigger = {
            vassal = { country = BEN country = SLO }
            SLO = { ai = yes }
        }
        command = { type = inherit which = SLO }
        command = { type = addcore_claim which = 248 } #Lucania
        command = { type = addcore_national which = 253 } #Salernum
    }
    action = {
        name = "Good"
        trigger = { #highly unlikely but you never know
            vassal = { country = BEN country = SLO }
            SLO = { ai = no }
        }
        command = { type = trigger which = 350002 } #SLO: Manso di Amalfi
    }
    action = {
        name = "Good"
        trigger = {
            NOT = { exists = SLO }
            OR = {
                owned = { province = 248 data = BEN } #Lucania
                owned = { province = 253 data = BEN } #Salernum
            }
        }
        command = { type = addcore_claim which = 248 } #Lucania
        command = { type = addcore_national which = 253 } #Salernum
        command = { type = trigger which = 142006 } #BEN: Amalfi's attempt in Salerno
    }


and like this for commands (from DoK too):
Code:
        command = {
            trigger = {
                alliance = { country = POI country = AUV }
            }
            type = addcore_claim which = 203 #Berry
        }



Persistent and random events:

random = yes
Random events are, well, random. They have been here ever since EUII was released so I do not think they need further description.

persistent = yes
Persistent events on the other hand were added with 1.3, and allow the same event to be triggered again if the deathdate has not been reached and the trigger is still true.
The event ID is written to the history so you can still check whether it has been triggered. A persistent event can trigger for multiple countries on the same day, but not multiple times for the same country on the same day. If you have no date and offset, the event will trigger every day until the deathdate.




Pictures for events:

The style = x line that was deemed useless in EU2 may now be used like this:
Code:
    style = "picture_name"
it will display the 24 bit image called picture_name.bmp stored in the Gfx\Events folder.



Special values for provinces in commands:

-1 or random is used to target a random province
-2 or capital is used to target the capital province of the country receiving the event
-3 or last_random is used to target again the province that was randomly picked in the last command
-4 or random_distinct is used to not target again a province that was already randomly picked in the same action
-5 or random_not_capital is used to not target the capital province of the country receiving the event


You can also target a random province in a specific continent/region/area by adding 1000 to its id number. Id's can be found in \Db\Map\geography.txt. So we'd have:

-1004 for a province in Europe
-1013 for a province in West Africa
-1151 for a province in Quebec

Please note that command adding troops will be ignored if no provinces are owned by the country receiving the event in the specified continent/region/area.



Special values for countries in commands:

-1 or random is used to target a random country
-3 or last_random is used to target again the country that was randomly picked in the last command
-4 or random_distinct is used to not target again a country that was already randomly picked in the same action
-6 or emperor is used to target the emperor
-7 or random_elector is used to target a random elector
-9 or random_distinct_elector is used to not target again an elector that was already randomly picked in the same action



Offset mechanics and trigger checking:

Many theories have been elaborated in the past ten years. Thanks to MichaelM, it seems that we now know the truth, hopefully he will correct me if I am (again) wrong: the offset is only used for the first check happening between startdate and startdate + offset, after that it is not taken into account at all and the event is re-checked between 16 and 76 days after the last check until the deathdate is reached.

It might also be useful, for long and complex triggers, to mention that the trigger check algorithm is depth-first from the top

Cheat codes

The old EU2 FAQ is still up to date, although I'm unsure about the events IDs, but new cheats were added in FTG. Here is the list:


showID: displays the province ID the mouse cursor is on and the continent/region/area it belongs to

showXY: displays the coordinates of the mouse cursor


peterthethird: AI will accept all proposals and never break them

torquemada: conversion will always be successful

champlain: colonization will always be successful

fugger: sets inflation to 0

exploration <tag>: shows which provinces are known to a country


drake, gustavus, cromwell and polo cheats now require an amount as parameter


richelieu causes a CTD when trying to split an army that belongs to another country


ai <tag>: more information available, ai_info.txt transfered to Logs folder

info <tag>: more information available

random = x
The event will only have x% chance to fire every time the event is checked.

"Every time the event is checked" means every time that it reaches offset, correct?

So if an event can happen from Jan. 1 1419 to Jan. 8 1419 with an offset of 1 day and a trigger of random = 50, it has a 50% chance to happen every single day, or 1-(0.5)^8 chance of happening at all?

How the offset works has always been a mysterious matter, I'm still waiting for answers myself.

Now about the random trigger, the way I understand it, it is mostly useful to use in combination with other triggers like this for instance:
Code:
trigger = {
	OR = {
		AND = {
			relation = { country = aaa data = 100 }
			random = 20
		}
		AND = {
			relation = { country = aaa data = 125 }
			random = 40
		}
		AND = {
			relation = { country = aaa data = 150 }
			random = 60
		}
		AND = {
			relation = { country = aaa data = 175 }
			random = 80
		}
		relation = { country = aaa data = 200 }
	}
}
Here, the better the relation with country aaa, the more likely the event is to fire.


it didnt work if the leader was already active - it does now
Yes, which is why the note has been put in red:

command = { type = sleepleader which = x }
Deactivates (makes dormant) leader with id x. This will also work on leaders for other countries. Note: Does not work if the leader is living.

So that people know it has been changed in FTG and not just an oversight from me when writing the list. I have edited my first post to make it clearer, hopefully.

i presume then with command below


command = { type = populationpercent which = x value = y
Modifies the population level in province x with y %.

the following is correct
command = { type = populationpercent which = 370 value = -10
loses 10 % of current population in Veneto

and

command = { type = populationpercent which = 370 value = -100
loses 100% of current population

if so , then this command is very dangerous and should have a limited number for value

The populationpercent command, like the old population command, cannot reduce a city below _PROV_COLONIAL_CITY_POP_ (1000) inhabitants or a colony below _PROV_MIN_COLONY_POP_ (10) inhabitants. It is not possible to destroy a city completely.

Could you clarify a few points, which seem to be in the game files?

Can the command "gainmanufactory" have a value of "-1"?

Do the following commands not exist? cash, addcore, removecore, infantry, artillery, cavalry, monarch

What values can tags take, besides XXX. Like, could they be -1, -2, etc?

Cash? Woudln´t that be the
treasury = x
trigger?

And "addcore" is the command to add a core since EU2 and not trigger. The trigger was core = X and has now been split into 3 triggers when I read that list right.
