Huh, surprise Hussites.

Well, since they refused to share any content about Bohemia and argued that too much would be <REDACTED>, we knew that something major would be coming. But I did not expect Hussite faith to become on par with other Christian denominations. Hussites did not exactly want to secede from the Church and in the end they were integrated, so it's not really faithful to real history. But on the other hand reformation and secession from church was still not widespread concept at that time and it is possble that Hussitism would eventually secede, given different historical circumstances, so the scenario is still pretty plausible for a fantasy history game.

Which nations got the new mission trees?

So far, we've seen mission trees for the HRE electors (Bavaria, Saxony/Thuringia, Brandenburg/Prussia, Cologne/Mainz/Trier, and The Palatinate), Dithmarschen, larger Italian states (Florence, Venice, Milan, Naples & Savoy), France, Provence, Dutch minors/Netherlands, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, and the Crusader states (The Knights, Cyprus, Epirus, Athens, Naxos & Jerusalem). In addition, mission trees for Italy, Germany, unified Holy Roman Empire, Burgundy, Bohemia and Croatia have been confirmed, and it's been implied that Switzerland and the Papal State might get mission trees as well. Finally, it was mentioned Bulgaria would get something that encouraged them to reform the Bulgarian Empire, which could be a decision or a small mission tree.

The Papal State will still always be the papal controller after you enacted the decision of the Kingdom of God?
Or the election system remains?
Probably will have the election system remain but give the PAP some unfair advantages. We're still tweaking :)

And I want to finish with some changes to the Introduce new heir mechanics. First up England starts with 100 Legitimacy again and in cases like the War of the Roses, Granadan Succession war or other similar things, we will instead be looking at claim strength of the heir or check if the dynasty is of the correct one to avoid cheating yourself out of it. Also to not allow you to cheat out of being a potential junior partner in a PU, anyone you have a royal marriage with will gain a Claim Throne CB on you.
Isn't this still pretty ahistorical? As far as I'm aware, the only amicable changes in the ruling dynasties of European states were the result of strategic marriages; the children can't be both Habsburgs and Trastámaras, after all. It might make at least some sense if the new heir had a weak claim and was of the same dynasty to represent a ruling family frantically searching for a new heir to prevent another, potentially foreign, family from taking the throne.

I'll just say it's a little disappointing to have substantively ahistorical mechanics in two DLCs in a row (this and minority expulsion).

Wondering if it was still possible to expand the Defender of the Faith mechanics to other religions, I think it would be really fun for nations of other religions.

I also really liked the name change to The Caliphate, but perhaps instead of that, it could change to the "[Name of the original country] Caliphate" such as "Ottoman Caliphate" or "Mamluk Caliphate" instead.

I notice the first in tech alert is red, too. Is this because the monarch points are capped or is it going to be always red? Personally, I'd advise against it being red, because Red is for things that need immediate attention, and knowing when and when not to blow an extra 400 monarch points on a tech is something new players will struggle with, especially if it's made to seem like something that needs immediate attention.

All Kings of France are Capets, but we don't call the Valois or Bourbon kings "Capet".

Hello!

Thanks for the wonderful dev diary. One question/suggestion. Would you be open to changing the color of the caliphate tag? The current sand color looks very similar to the Mamluks. My suggestion would be some kind of black color. Basically, a resurrection of the caliphate draws inspiration from the previous ones, but the foundational one is the Rashudin under Mohammad. If memory serves me right, his battle standard was a solid black flag or banner. If not that color, perhaps a green color (that is different than Arabia) as green has historically been associated with Islam.

The Caliphate isn't a new tag, it merely renames the tag that reformed it into "The Caliphate". So in this example, it was indeed the Mamluks who became the Caliphate.
