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.

Welcome again to another EU4 Dev Diary. This week, I will be presenting a few of the German mission trees we have been working on that will come as paid content for those who buy the expansion that will accompany the large European update planned at the end of the year.

Our aim with the expansion is to provide the major powers of continental Europe (from Brest to Constantinople) with sizeable mission trees (15+ missions), adding to each country’s unique experience. These will be paid content. We also hope to (time permitting) add smaller, free mission trees of around 5-10 missions to various other interesting countries that, for one reason or another, we were unable to give full mission trees.

In the context of Germany (today, I speak of Germany in the modern sense of the word), Brandenburg-Prussia, Bavaria and Saxony have been given full mission trees, and we hope to add a few missions for the other regional formables (Franconia etc) and electors. I also hear @neondt has a soft spot for Dithmarschen, and certain other beloved minors may get some additions.

Now, onto those missions we’ve made.

NB: Most new missions presented have wip mission icons and will receive new ones before release.

Bavaria (available to Munich, Landshut, Ingolstadt and Bavaria)

Bavarian Missions.png


Bavaria already has a few free missions. These have been reworked a bit to reflect Bavaria’s new starting position and supplemented by a further 15 missions. In terms of conquests, the existing missions broadly focus on Bavaria’s historical gains over our time period, so the new missions go a bit further and represent the aims that a more successful Bavarian state may have had, giving you the chance to reclaim lands owned by the Bavarian stem duchy at its height (c. 975 AD) and various other territories the Wittelsbachs had once held (e.g. Brandenburg and the Netherlands). Furthermore, the new conquest mission tree includes the opportunity to request that the Emperor grant you the Palatinate’s elector status if you PU them (it also gives the appropriate CB to do so) and lets you set up your dynasty in Cologne.

Further branches of the new mission tree focus on developing your homelands and your nation’s capabilities, dealing with new ideas that might emerge among your subjects over the course of the game, and of course, assuming Bavaria’s rightful position among the states of Germany.


Saxony (available to Saxony and Thuringia)

Saxon Missions.png


Saxony had no country-unique missions. As one of the key powers of the HRE in the first half of our period, we decided to correct this and have added 16 new missions. The conquest missions focus, on the one hand, on avoiding the fragmentation with which they were beset in history and conquering lands that had once been part of the Saxon stem duchy (e.g. Brunswick, Westphalia), and on the other, on replicating the exploits of the likes of Frederick Augustus I, also known as Augustus II the Strong, who became the King of Poland-Lithuania as well as Prince-Elector of Saxony.

A further branch focuses on the prestige of the Prince-Elector and entails the foundation of Wittenberg University, winning the religious wars, spreading the dynasty far and wide (a branch of it still rules Britain under the name “Windsor”), and taking on the title of King.

Finally, the economic branch gives you the opportunity to change Dresden/Meissen’s trade good to porcelain, make Leipzig a centre of trade (it became an important commercial centre over this period) and industrialise Saxony.


Brandenburg-Prussia (available to Brandenburg and Prussia)

Brandenburg Missions.png


Like Bavaria, Brandenburg and Prussia already had a few missions. These have been incorporated into their new, larger mission tree, which focuses on the one hand on Prussia establishing itself as the preeminent German state, the unification Germany under them, and their conquests in the east; and on the other on replicating the feats of military organisation the Prussian state achieved in the 18th century, and generally on Prussia having the appearance as well as the military of a great power of Europe. Furthermore, in a tribute to alt-history, a couple of missions were dedicated to making a success of Brandenburg’s (historically abortive) colonial ambitions.

Note: The missions Army Reforms and An Army with a State only become available once Prussia is formed.

That’s it for today. Next week we’ll be back to map changes, with @Ofaloaf presenting the new-look Italy.

Since @Caligula Caesar mentioned it, I've been working on a few missions for everyone's favourite peasant republic, Dithmarschen.

peasant missions.png

Note: the above missions will be a free feature of the upcoming European update.

In keeping with some of our earlier mission trees for minor nations such as Navarra and Tibet, the peasant republic has a challenging but rewarding set of goals. They'll need to begin by securing the protection of a benevolent Bishop before recruiting a band of egalitarian pirates, resisting the feudal lords of Germany, and fighting back against Danish aggression. Dithmarschen can then embark on a righteous quest to rid Europe of tyranny while also securing prosperity and equality for its people.

There's still a long time before the release of our European expansion, so do let us know if there are any other minor nations you think are deserving of a little extra love.

Looks great. But i have a question, will the formable nations of Germany and Italy have their unique mission trees or will they just copy the missions of country that formed them? I think that it would be great if those formables had missions beyond the regional unification, perhaps someting with colonies and other stuff.

various other territories the Wittelsbachs had once held (e.g. Brandenburg and the Netherlands).
What about Denmark, Norway and, most importantly, Sweden?

I mean... it looks okay...ish...

for over 5 months almost nothing besides promises and last week the first real DD its just still feels like empty promisses.
We got 3 Missiontrees where we will have to pay for. And the rest of germany will feel empty. Great. ( I know, you got more mission trees, and ditmarschen yaiii... all the other countries?) but I don't get, why I should play any of these "new" nations (and the old without missions/events) if they just feel empty besides their new name and color. - u see the same "empty content" problem with imperator... more nations/provinces doesn't make a better game ;) )... thought you finally would understand that. And all the "new" events - we just saw one (bavaria). Great, and again prob. in the first few years.
I don't get why you don't add a policy that each "new" country needs a missiontree and some events for their existence. every modder makes it possible.

I also adressed the empty feeling of that "new" countries and the "few" mission trees already multiple times and you also said that you will think about the community and their demands for a good game. What I see is the typical Paradox DD of the last 2 years - add new provinces, add new tags, maybe 3-4 missiontrees and fancy buttons, 10 DLC events for each of that buttons and thats it. Don't think you heard.... (even if you said so over and over again.)

I'd love Cleves. Especially now that Jüllich exists.
Also, just by the way, for the localization: Jüllich is called Julliers in French (all provinces on the west bank of the Rhine should have french localization)

Another nation for which I'd really really really enjoy a mission tree is The Knights.
They're only slightly beyond Constantinople maybe, but they got occitan culture, so I guess they can be included. They're probably my favourite nation to play as, and they could really use the missions and I think there is quite some historical base for it too.

I would like to see missions for Lubeck (I woefully failed to finish my suggestion regarding those, perhaps I will find some time soon) and at least 2-3 generic missions for all Free Cities and bishoprics in HRE, to differentiate them a bit from the monarchies. Switzerland could also be a nice target for a mission tree.

That Bavarian mission 'deal with the Illuminati,' comes pretty early on in the tree. Given that the Illuminati weren't founded until the late eighteenth century (oh, sorry, I mean they were established as an off-shoot of the Templars and secretly control the banks and popular culture ohgodthesetheoriesareboring), isn't that the equivalent of starting France off with a mission 'deal with the philosophes?'

That is to say, shouldn't it be right down the bottom of the mission tree for the late game, not right up the top centuries early?

Great job, what about Switzerland, Bohemia and Austria? Will their mission trees change? Will we see the Austria map the with Italy one, with the balkans one or will there be an Austria only dev diary?
Edit: also a mission tree for the Palatinate would be nice since it was a massively important country in the 30 years war (leader of the protestant league)

Welcome again to another EU4 Dev Diary. This week, I will be presenting a few of the German mission trees we have been working on that will come as paid content for those who buy the expansion that will accompany the large European update planned at the end of the year.

Our aim with the expansion is to provide the major powers of continental Europe (from Brest to Constantinople) with sizeable mission trees (15+ missions), adding to each country’s unique experience. These will be paid content. We also hope to (time permitting) add smaller, free mission trees of around 5-10 missions to various other interesting countries that, for one reason or another, we were unable to give full mission trees.

In the context of Germany (today, I speak of Germany in the modern sense of the word), Brandenburg-Prussia, Bavaria and Saxony have been given full mission trees, and we hope to add a few missions for the other regional formables (Franconia etc) and electors. I also hear @neondt has a soft spot for Dithmarschen, and certain other beloved minors may get some additions.

Now, onto those missions we’ve made.

NB: Most new missions presented have wip mission icons and will receive new ones before release.

Bavaria (available to Munich, Landshut, Ingolstadt and Bavaria)

View attachment 480268

Bavaria already has a few free missions. These have been reworked a bit to reflect Bavaria’s new starting position and supplemented by a further 15 missions. In terms of conquests, the existing missions broadly focus on Bavaria’s historical gains over our time period, so the new missions go a bit further and represent the aims that a more successful Bavarian state may have had, giving you the chance to reclaim lands owned by the Bavarian stem duchy at its height (c. 975 AD) and various other territories the Wittelsbachs had once held (e.g. Brandenburg and the Netherlands).

Further branches of the new mission tree focus on developing your homelands and your nation’s capabilities, dealing with new ideas that might emerge among your subjects over the course of the game, and of course, assuming Bavaria’s rightful position among the states of Germany.
Wouldnt it be cool to have a mission about an alliance between Bavaria and France? IRL a long standing one existed (from the end of the 30YW until Napoleon..) and aimed to protect Bavaria against Austria mainly, then Prussia, and for France to keep influence in the HRE, and contain Austria.

Climbing to 80 Trust or Something like that would grant some bonuses. For instance :
-better relations with the electors for Bavaria; +1 diplo relation (to increase the chance of Bavaria being the Emperor, which happened in 1742 with the support of French King Louis XV)
- Prosperity / Yearly prestige for France and some dev bonus (for the Bavarian Queen and princesses and their influence on Paris); and maybe some military bonuses has it seems to me that soldier from Bavaria were third only to Scottish and Swiss in the French royal army

Lubeckian missions would be a great addition!
