Btw. you failed a mission :eek: and you did it on purpose :eek: :eek: :eek:

No he didn't. He tried to complete it to the best of his abilities. The cheapest way to increase relations with a small enemy is always to force-vassalize them ;)

Too bad the game just didn't understand how clever it was.

I'm going to say a Catholic Italy as well. At first I wasn't sure because you can't be at war, but then I remembered (in the couple second after I'd looked at the triggers for the mission) that you'd vassalized Naples before completing the create proper fleet again.

btw, I think it's this mission:
Code:
catholic_italy = {
	type = country

	allow = {
		tag = PAP
		war = no
		italian_region = { not = { religion = catholic } }
	}
	abort = {
	}
	success = {
		not = { italian_region = { not = { religion = catholic } } }
	}

	chance = {
		factor = 1000
		modifier = {
			factor = 10
			dip = 7
		}
	}
	effect = {
		army_tradition = 0.5
		badboy = -5
	}
}

Where is spl anyway?
A few people have what they call "jobs" :) (for the last 3 summers at least...)

Anywho, I figured it was with Naples.

And the last one was way too easy Euro...getting country specific missions are most likely, and having 2 big pictures about it...bury them in text so it takes time to get the clues! :D
