Looking to stat a Netherlands game. Who did you start out at as? Tips?
I started as Friesland, if you want to have it easier go Burgundy.
Naturally went colonizing without taking anything in Europe. If I remember correctly I got naval basing rights from Granada/Morocco then got Cap Verde->Brazil->quickly colonize all coasts while fighting colonial wars with colonial powers. Moved my capital to the new world asap and in 1600ish got the Europian holdings.

I didnt do it but I assume it is possible to go and annex+release Aztec or something early on and getting to colonize much quicker that way

How did you get enough positive to get fleet access from Granada/Morocco?

My Otto the Man Red Sea India / China trading Empire
I originally set out with the goal of 'Conquer every Baltic and Meditterranean coastal province', but, well, I got sidetracked by all the missions involving Egypt and Arabia, and then I started sending trade ships to Indus and Ceylon, and then I just kept going... and before I knew it I was staging 80 regiments on Taiwan to invade China...

I assume you control much of The New World.

Indeed, I do. Actually it has been a pretty boring game. Colonizing is pretty much an "I-win" button, so I wanted to spice it up at the end and see how I'd fare against the other powers of the world.

Im curious about your income, would you mind posting it. You seem to have pretty much identical holdings compared to my Netherlands save

I was basically done with this game once I had conquered Brazil from Portugal, but I waited to see the AI form the HRE...it lost Bohemia and a couple of others (once it dishonored a call against BBB), and it decided to annex 3 of its vassals, giving it a -200 opinion with all HRE members, so it took like 5-10 more years for them to unite the HRE with a tied vote...

I was so focused on colonizing the Americas and when I saw England, France, and Portugal colonizing Africa, I decided to not bother going East this game...I didn't get to pick up the trade idea group, so I might have had a much higher trade income at the end. I also was perpetual Papal Controller since sometime in the 1500s...I wish there were a less tedious way to manage that though...

So many blobs in this game, especially France...they PUed Scotland and Naples and diplovassalized and annexed Italian and German states...Bohemia got Russia in a PU, Ottomans are OP as usual (and my ally!), and France was only defeated by an Austria that had passed the penultimate reform.


Overall, I finally got the Caribbean Achievement and painted the entire Americas with a pretty yellow. Now I have to decide if I can bring myself to do the boring colonization again but this time moving my capital, just so I can see how OP it is...

Trying to go for the luck of the irish achievement early on, makes an interesting early game however.
