And a warning. If you have modified any of the Victoria files, the patch may not over-write your modified files. If this is the case, you should:
1) Backup your modifications.
2) Uninstall VIC.
3) Install VIC.
4) Apply the patch.
5) Figure out what you want to do with your modifications.

All patches May not be backward compatable, so it is recommended to start a new game with each patch.

HOW TO ACTIVATE THE NEW AI-AI COLONIAL CLAIM RESOLUTION EVENTS :



One of the major changes developed for 1.4 is a new series of AI-only events to help resolve problems of colonial claims not being settled among AI nations. Because the solution we have developed may not be something all players wish to use, we have decided to add them but not make them active unless the player makes a slight alteration.
To activate the new AI colony resolution system, go to the events.txt file in the db folder section of where Victoria is stored on your harddrive. At the bottom of the events.txt file there is the line

#event = "db\events\AIColonyResolve.txt"

to activate, remove the # from in front of that line, and save the change.
The way they work is that at various dates if a colony remains unclaimed, AI-controlled nations will transfer their claims to the historic colonizer. So for example if Mali is unclaimed and AI FRA has 5 buildings and AI ENG has 5 buildings, the event will fire for AI ENG to transfer the buildings to FRA, and allow FRA to claim the colony. These events will only fire if both parties are at peace, transfer events will not fire for nations at war.
This system does not affect the human player at all. Say you are ENG and you have 3 claim buildings in Mali, FRA has 5 and PRU has 2. Your efforts to get PRU to sell you the claims have gone nowhere, and the colony as a whole remains unclaimed. The event will fire for AI PRU to transfer its 2 claims to FRA (the historic colonizer) so now you will have to deal with only one nation rather than 2 in trying to either get the rest of the claims or selling the claims.
The AI Colony Resolve events are also designed to provide help to Belgium and Portugal which have a very hard time getting their foot in the door in spite of our best efforts to get the AI to colonize. In those cases if their historic colonial areas (Congo for BEL, Angola & Mozambique for POR) are unclaimed or claimed by other AI nations, events kick in to cede claims and provinces directly to AI-controlled BEL or POR. Again these only kick in for the nations benefitting if they are AI controlled and the nations giving the land are AI controlled. Human players will never get the events.
The end result is that there will be virtually no "unclaimed" colonial regions in the world by 1900 due to AI-AI unwillingness to make deals over colonial buildings.
