EU4 - Development Diary - 25th of September 2018

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. 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

This thread is more than 5 months old.

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.

  • Europa Universalis 4: Emperor


Good day all. Today is our second and final dev diary for the upcoming 1.27 Poland Update. Wait, the final one already!?

Yes, we shall be releasing the Poland Update on Monday 1st October. This is, as some will rightfully point out, very swift following Dharma's release. The reason for this is that, in addition to the usual bugfixes and improvements that come along with a post release patch, our Poland update is also bringing EU4 in line with the General Data Protection Regulation. We have set this as our date for ensuring that our games follow these new EU laws. Rather than getting bogged down in the details about the what's and whys of GDPR in our games myself, I instead encourage inquiring minds to read this link.

The long and short of it is that once the Poland Patch goes live, we will be requiring you to read and agree to our privacy policy, which will be displayed to you in the game the first time you load up after the update. A truly painless process.

Things diverge here a little for those who like to play on our older versions. If you are, for example, one of the people playing on the previous versions, anything from 1.4 up to 1.26, you will be in for a rude awakening as your game will no longer be set to that version on Steam. Unfortunately, we cannot legally have those versions available for play as they are not GDPR compliant due to having no capacity for gaining your consent to our privacy policy.

Fret not though, as we have a solution ready for everyone who want to continue playing on old versions. We are have a webpage ready for players to log in with their Plaza account, read our privacy policy and retrieve codes for the old versions of our games. Plug these into Steam and you can continue playing on our old versions to your heart's content. More information here again!

With the joys of GDPR info over, let's get back to looking at the Poland update.

@neondt was kind enough last week to share the bulk of what's changing in the Poland update: Map changes, new ideas, missions, events, Government reforms, even a hulking great Mongol Empire. I'm in a tough position to match such a meat dev diary myself. Let's have a couple of highlighted balance changes and enjoy the Patchnotes today.

Balance changes.

Conversions

Firstly, the removal of religious conversions in territories was by all measures a contentious one. It is certainly our ambition that religious conversion not come with such ease and arcade feel to it. None the less, one particular piece of feedback which truly resonated with me was that people who build religious focused nations whose goal is to combat heresy are unable to do the one thing they are setting out to do. To that end, in 1.27, there are two particular changes being made here:

  • Religious Ideas finisher allow for conversion in territories
  • Territories have a -2% conversion strength
We have other small changes in mind for conversions, but we'll be going into those in due time.

Institutions

Since institutions were introduced, the tech situation in the world was made vastly less divergent. While to a degree we don't want it being a trivial task to roll over anyone not blessed enough to hail from Pisa or Lothian, things were looking a touch too normalized, so a few tweaks are coming in 1.27 to widen the tech gap.

  • Global Trade
    • No longer gain embracement boost from Marketplace, Trade Depot, Stock Exchange because you already get a lot from trade power which these buildings boost.
    • Gain 0.5 embracement scaled from level 3 CoT, 0.1 from Level 2 CoT
  • Manufacturing
    • Restricted somewhat where it can spawn so we don't get it spawning in 5 dev desert province
    • Reduce how much you get on continents where it did not spawn.
  • Enlightenment
    • Restricted somewhat where it can spawn so we don't get it spawning in 5 dev desert province
    • Reduce how much you get on continents where it did not spawn.

Of course for the full changes to digest, here are the patchnotes:

Locking old patches behind binding the account to the Forum is ugly, but I guess required by GDPR
Are those codes unique each time u downgrade, or are they the same for all players globally ?

Slowing down global trade is a good thing, in general, slowing down institutions is always good to make the game more acurate, and to compensate for all the extra institution spread that has been added to the game

"Tariffs overlord operate on now match how much the CN actually pays."
So are Colonial nations now permanently bankrupt ?
Since with 100% tariffs + 70% tariff efficiency they pay way more than there income

Did u at least fix, that colonial nations delete fort's if they can't afford them ?

oh and Trade company's still stay overpowered

Well that was different than I expected of the revert religious conversion change. I look forward to see what you can come up as a better solution in the future.

Edit: Apparently people are misunderstood this comment... I envisioned a different approach to allowing the religious conversion in territory. Not a flat -2% penalty.

Could you add Culture Mapmode to Starting Screen? It would be really helpful for creating custom nations, or even just to remind yourself which cultures are where before you start a game to plan your expansion. Especially when you start on different dates like I do.

It's cool because now you must choose between religious or humanist (because it's hard to convert without religious), not humanist or humanist.

Why does Poland get DHEs when India, the subject of the last major expansion, received not a single one?

Oh geez, I'll have to hurry up with my Mewar run! :eek:

I'm happy about the compromise about conversion - I've tried a Religious Bengal/Hindustan run in the current patch and while it did kinda work with some heavy vassal play, it was simply not a fun way to play anymore.

blessed enough to hail from Pisa or Lothian
I understood that reference! :D

I haven't read the patchnotes, but I like the religous changes. IMHO, and everyone please chime in, Humanist will still be "better," which is a BAD word in strategy games. Humanism gives reduced nationwide RR, less seperatism, and +3 tolerance to all who aren't your faith. In comparison, religious gives +1 to TF tolerance and cheaper stability. I think that a nation that has taken religious ideas should be more stable, long term after conversions of course, than a humanist one. It's a trade off and while there is lowered RR from humanism, if you have low legitimacy, bad events etc. it could be bad for your empire. Basically, can you guys please add more true faith tolerance to religious to make it at least somewhat balanced?
As far as 1.27, thank you guys for the free updates adding more flavor and features. @DDRJake Who is eligable to form the Ilkhanate? Sorry if it's posted. :)
