YodaMaster said:Are you sure all plagues events are province specific?
Of course, it is the case for earthquakes and natural catastrophes but we don't really know what could have happened for "human" catastrophes if situation was different even if we have no fixed rule for these events. We just know it happened for Ottomans.
It seems I was wrong. Venice, Italy, Bantam and Sumatra plagues and smallpox are in Province Specific file, but other epidemics are in country files. What does a plague have to do with who rules the province? Would the plague in Anatolia not have happened had it been ruled by Italians or Persians? I don't think that any European civilization of that time could cause or prevent the plague. For example, plague in Venice happened because of great population density and bad living conditions, and I bet the reasons for any other plague must be similar to those in Venice. Would Venice have been any different had it been conquered by Austria or France or the Ottomans?
