Hello EU4 fans, I hope you're all having a nice Friday. Here in Paradox Towers we're hard at work on the 1.9 patch. 1.9 is mostly a bug fixing patch, but we're also throwing in a couple free features, so I thought I'd make a few 'mini dev diaries' to tell you about what new things you're getting. First out is 20 new achievements that we're adding in 1.9, mostly focusing on countries that currently don't have much in the ways of unique achievements.

So without further ado, here are the new 1.9 achievements:

A Holy Trinity
As The Papacy, own Jerusalem and have Livonian Order, Teutonic Order and The Knights as Marches.

Switzerlake
Own 99 provinces as Switzerland, with no ports.

King of Jerusalem
Form Kingdom of Jerusalem as Cyprus or Knights.

Krabater!
Form the nation of Croatia and station a unit of cavalry in Stockholm.

Lion of the North
As Sweden, lead the Protestant League to victory against the Emperor.

Guaranteer of Peace
Guarantee the Independence of France, Ottoman Empire & Russia. (Note: This requires you to be more powerful than them in 1.9).

The Foremost Servitor of Jagannath
Start as Orissa, own all tropical wood provinces.

Bengal Tiger
Start as Bengal, own Samarkand as a core province.

Prester John
Start as Ethiopia, own Alexandria, Antioch & Constantinople

Auld Alliance Reversed
As Scotland, have France as a vassal.

Gothic Invasion
As Theodoro, own all Germanic culture provinces in Europe.

Kow-Tow
As Ming, have a subject from each religion group.

Barbarossa
As a Maghrebi nation, have 500 light ships privateering at the same time.

Georgia on my Mind
Conquer all three Georgias.

Albania or Iberia
As Albania, conquer Iberia and Causcasus.

The Spice must flow
Form the nation of Malaya.

Raja of the Rajput Reich
Conquer all of Germany as Nagaur.

The Sun Never Sets on the Indian Empire
Form Hindustan and own Cape, London, Hongkong and Ottawa.

Over a Thousand
Own 1001 provinces directly.

Draculas Revenge
Form Romania and conquer all of the balkans.


Next Friday we'll have a mini dev diary to discuss the Disasters system which is a new free feature that replaces the major rebellion event chains such as Peasants' War and War of the Roses.

Although this will yet again bring down my overall achievement completion percentage, there seem to be some very interesting additions! Thanks, Wiz et al.

One small thing though: guaranteer should probably be changed to guarantor.

These are indeed great. Lots of interesting different countries to play instead of more achievements for Poland.

Will Disasters be the only major new feature of 1.9 or might we see the fabled dynamic flags?

Dracula's Revenge here we come.
At last an achievment for the most controversy states that makes my heart grow a little.Now only if paradox would make an achievement for moldova to win major wars against oto,poland and hungary while having a ruler named stefan stationed,that would make me kiss their feets,altough it's never gonna happen one can dream.

On the other note i am really excited about that no more guarantee peace everyone so you can get opinion and disaster thingy will have to see.
Btw that albania achievment is gonna be a must.

Hongkong? I thought there is no province called Hongkong during EUIV timeline? I know there is Macau though. Or Paradox will create a new province called Hongkong in patch 1.9?

Will 1.9 include the ability to call the rivals of a country in to a war against them even if not allied during the war?

... it's a long shot but I can hope. I want cascading alliances back in some form, even if it doesn't include alliances directly.
