Thank you for the response.First of all, what ideas did you take?
Second, there's a fifth tier reform called estates general which will consistently give you decent rulers.
Third, do you want to do a one tag? If not, then integrating Spain isn't a concern.
I don't have the save, but it does seem that your mana and money management is... Not good. There's nearly never a reason to be behind in tech (besides dip if you're doing it on purpose), and your production income is way too low. It seems you haven't built any manus or workshops.
I can't give any specific advice based on your
screenshots, except for practice your war micro. Can you win the war vs England and Portugal in 1444 without running out of money or manpower?
Diplo - Humanist - Exploration - Offensive are the ideas, but I've barely unlocked any new ideas.
I simply haven't had the money to build anything. I've been in debt most of the game. I feel if I had more money I could fix my situation even on tech by hiring advisors, but I'm so far behind now it feels like I should give up. I'm down to 5 loans I got from my estate, but still.
Diplo...I have loads of vassals and PUs I've had to integrate. I've consistently had rulers with 2 or under Diplo and been in several queen regencies/regencies. I think that's the one I've been a bit unlucky on.
The first war vs England/Portugal 100% depends on whether England decide to focus on Scotland (decoy) or land all their soldiers in Iberia and attack me from the south. If they do the latter, like they did, it's very hard not to start with a -10-20k manpower penalty. Given I want to take our Provence before they are excommunicated and Brittany before theyg et allied to England or Austria, it's hard not to start in a hole.
