What are the ways besides ruler stats to improve point generation? I'm lagging in tech.

Also, what are good some good idea trees for Aragon, do you think? I went into offensive thinking it would be a lot better than it actually was, but it was actually pretty trash. I'm not doing so well this time but I want to try another Aragon game after.

Hire advisors, check so that you aren't having too many diplomatic relations or leaders.

Is it impossible to vasalise Scotland (I'm playing England, have the mission) if Burgundy took over on their side in the war. I cannot negotiate a separate peace deal with Scotland itself (since they are a wargoal) and with Burgundy I see no "vassalize Scotland" option.

Have you occupied Scotland's capital?

This bug sees a province adjacent to a colony as if it was inland, not coastal. Say you have 2 coastal adjacent provinces within colonial range and you can send colonist to either of them but once you colonist arrives to one, the other province is no longer seen as coastal. I haven't tested it but that's my hypothesis based on my experience. Maybe it has something to do with colonizing on the same continent where my capital is.

If you don't have shipbuilding researched, you cannot send colonists to provinces which don't border full cities of your own. Shipbuilding is Diplo tech 2 as I recall. Makes sense really.

Do anyone know what is the condition of a stack wipe. I left a werstern army in a mountain province: 3 inf, 2 arty no leader; but they are wiped instanly with no fight when the Timurid army come: 27k inf, 18 k cavalry, 9 art.

10:1 battles result in instant wipes. They had 56k to your 5k, there was never any hope.

One more time in regard to my earlier question... when my Vassal wins a siege in a province they have a claim to (not a core), will I be able to give it to them in the peace or will they occupy the province for me?

No, when a vassal occupies a claim of theirs, it is occupied in the name of their overlord. There is currently no way to push your vassals' claims other than taking the province yourself and selling it to your vassal.

Sounds awesome, might get myself a few lone merc cavalry to do some looting in France next time. Has anyone used it extensively? Is it worth it?


Any ideas on this question:

Also, if I have a vassal, can I break the royal ties with them but still keep them as a vassal and integrate?

I'm playing a ironman Austria game, and I am accumulating vassals, but they keep the royal marriage which takes up diplo slots, since I'm papal controller I can cancel royal marriages for free and would love to have the 6 or so diplo slots back.

Looting: It is most useful early game. You earn the base tax of the province you loot directly twice a month. You can loot any province of a nation you are at war with provided it does not border a province where you have military access (allies, owned lands, occupies lands...) The best places I've found to loot are Lithuania, Western Russia and China. These are large areas with respectable base taxes. obliterate the enemy army and lay down 1k troops on every province and enjoy that sweet dosh.

Hordes make double income on looting.

As for the marriages, yes, that will work. Papal control is idea so you don't lose stability.

So basically carpet siege-ing also loots (the provinces meeting the requirements)? Isn't that with a 6 month cooldown or am I understanding the 'you loot directly twice a month' part incorrectly?

Looting occurs either on the moment you enter a province (Provided that province was your end destination and your troops have no further movement orders) OR when your besieging a province at the turn of a month and the province does not have the "looted" modifier.

So you can micro-manage marching one province at a time through a country or carpet siege them. Either way, you are always going to have to take the 1% attrition in order to enjoy the looting money.

It's not map mode, it was by default turned on in early version of EU4. I see DDRjake stream turns it on but I don't know how

I suspect you mean this:

"show monthly tax income" on the options screen before hitting "play"

The Wiki is supported by Paradox but it is not official Paradox output. It is player made and curated, I think, by @Meneth who can probably tell you a bit more about that than I can.
The wikis are owned by Paradox, and administrated by me.
The content is largely written by players. It is usually accurate (though can often be potentially outdated, in which case the article/section will be clearly marked as such).
Though since it is largely player-written, it is indeed from time to time wrong.
If you encounter a claim on the wikis you believe to be wrong, feel free to correct it with a source in your edit summary (E.G., a link to a dev post, or a description of where in the game files it can be found). If it can't be sourced, it is generally better to mark the claim as "verification needed"; this can be done with the "sup" template:
{{sup|Why the claim might be wrong, or simply "verification needed|the claim in the text}}

Hope that helps. If anyone has any further questions, make sure to highlight me (using "@Meneth") or quote me. I don't normally follow this thread, so otherwise I'm unlikely to see your post.

Is anyone else seeing the AI use the "enforce peace" option vastly more in 1.19 than in previous versions? I can't see it anywhere in the patch notes, but I've seen it three times thus far in about 60 years of game time, whereas I can't recall ever having had it used against me in over 900 years of previous play. Actual real change, or just weird coincidence?

For a long time, the AI was not using certain diplo actions like calling crusade and claiming throne and, yes, enforce peace.

Now they do, so it's definitely going to be noticeable.

We have added new dynamic province names with basically every patch actually, many of them from the suggestions forum :)
There's only so much time though and they all need to be checked by the person adding them (not to mention adapted to any internal map changes we have going on).

If you have suggestions for more to add you can create a thread in the suggestions forum and we'll consider it.

Will the rome dlc and patch be backwards compatible with current saves?

There are map changes so you'll have oddities around the new provinces. Other than that there shouldn't be any known issues (but oddities could happen).

AoW with it's massive changes was perfectly playable for example.

I would expect similar issues as with AoW actually: That is, oddities around new provinces mostly.

Im talking about the book of the consulate of the sea modifier, which you get in a mtth 200 months IF you have the "Ruler" modifier, but now the event gives you a country modifier instead of a ruler one
pre 1.22:

1.22:


And both versions have


So am I reading this right, it triggers with RULER modifier,instead of COUNTRY modifier?

Yeah that's a bug in the brain fart category :oops:
