We don't have an official steamgroup. If anyone posts in the thread about any "official" or not steamgroup, promising MP or not, be sure it's a shitposter group known for organizing raids and shitposting in the thread. They are known for false-flagging.

I was the one that recommended the atmoran/companion invasion reenactment
Just copying and pasting this here, would you perchance know how to fix my problem?

Why the hell is this chapel i own saying i have the wrong holding type?
This is in elder kings, i have given it to a priestess courtier and it did nothing, ended up assassinating her to get it back and give it to a mage and it did nothing
Does culture need to be the same, or can it be different to the province? They both have the same religion

I haven't been able to play since i originally posted this question 6 hours ago, i just have the game paused
Please help

>>121355292

Thanks!

>>121355708
But i am not holding it anymore, as i said i gave it to some courtiers
Why would they have it as a wrong holding type? They dont own any more land to be labled feudal so they should be able to hold it and do the job fine

Don't stress about it too much.

If I restarted the game, or played as anyone else, I could press claims just fine.

Well, Persia has a lot of events and decisions that speed things up. I'd say becoming a GP(I have 136, not that far off) is a first priority, as some neat decisions will open up and my income won't be syphoned by the Albion. I'm encouraging muh intellectuals and trying to make Turkmenistan a state, so there's that. I'll probably focus on the industry when my economy starts running a profit, good thing I have some coal and iron RGOs

>>121356485
The British Indian army did most of the job. I think the fact my alliance had 220 military points whereas the Russian had less than 100 was also a factor. I just captured the objective as quick as I could and tried to defend on the mountains near the Caucasus. Fuck Romanians, though.

>>121356705
I know, but fighting the brits won't be easy, I don't plan on attacking Afghanistan nor Kalat until I manage to keep up with the military techs

I just said i have no more churches, that's literally the only one i have, i only have about 5 places under my control spread through 4 provinces
I will try and take it away from him, then take the vassal under him away too, then give the chapel to some other guy while retaining the other territory in the province
>>
>>121357142
This just fixed it
Does anyone know some way i can take the territory of vassals without killing/banishing them?
Those two vassals are pretty good, so i would like to give them back again after taking them, so no negative relationship (Or at least a large amount for too long)
Hopefully some type of console command?

Fuck fuck fuck, why did I even accept to the call to arms? I gain absolutely nothing out of it. Maybe I'll be able to get Afghanistan out of the british sphere, at least. I could be blobbing into Russia right now, they are super weak.

>>121359289
Nope, but getting there I guess

>>121359314
Later, there are many countries separating us and I have other priorities too, I want to get a somewhat decent navy before doing that too. Do I have to use cut down to size or punitive expedition?
>>
>>121359616
everyone knows that marrying off your daughter to a wealthy nobleman hinders your ability to build better ships and recruit admirals
>>
>>121359471
Force Russia to release it or release it yourself. If you want to release it yourself, I recommend releasing Ukraine and then Ruthenia, as the latter will then integrate into the former.
>>
>>121359798
But all that can be offset by sending spies to study technology in other countries
It's all connected, of course
If the admiral is not tied up designing better ships he can spend his time watching the royal princess fuck
>>
>>121359912

>watching the royal princess fuck

L-lewd
>>
>>121359757
Punitive expedition is basically a cut down to size + treaty port via decision, and you could use the UK to beat them up. You should've taken Khasab as well, you get a tax bonus from controlling Qeshm and Khasab as you'd control the entirety of the Persian Gulf.

That's odd, in my Persia save the same thing kept happening to me. I even had +5.0 attack generals, but not a single one with 3.0 defense, 2.0 by your timeframe.
Also, when you backstab the UK, make sure they'll release the Trucial States for Bahrain and Qatar, there's a decision to get free cores on them and they have some ebin tax modifiers as well.

Has anyone else noticed that Paradox has been getting a lot more shekel-heckle with their expansions?

As I recall, every feature in Conquest of Paradise was free, even for people without the expansion, except for the random new world option and playing as a colonial nation.

Just looking at the recent dev diaries, there are so many features in the Cossacks that seem like they should be free. The improved espionage, for example.

Heathen and infidel can be used interchangably, but the former usually refers to pagans/unrelated religions and the latter mostly between Christians and Muslims (it literally means "unfaithful," so it implies they had the chance to worship correctly). Heretic refers specifically to members of the same religion who believe in significantly "wrong" doctrine which corrupts the true meaning. Protestants are heretics in the eyes of Catholics for example, their disbelief in the godliness of the Pope being heretical.

You're retarded.

That's happening because you still have a truce with them from the last war, you're meant to use all the CBs in one war by adding the CBs during the war, you're not meant to grab a state, end the war, declare war again,because you lose 100 prestige for breaking the truce.

just got 36 prisoners from one holding, what shall i do with them

>>121380779
It's easy af
Beating Russia is another story though as they keep sending stacks and get no war exhaustion, but it's pretty easy to beat allieless Ottomans and even the Brits in the 1910s. Ally Japan and Germany and get one state from Russia at a time unless it's one of those saves where they crumble in front of thousands of revolutions.
Industry and military score wise, you should hold on to their top 8 easily as well, and you can get +500 prestige in the 1920s without prestige spamming at all.

So I formed england quite quickly as Wessex, it's my first game and I'm pretty chuffed. I thought I was doing OK but when I became king I have these 2 problems I have no clue how to deal with...

When I click on my character it says my heir is my half brother but when I click on my wife it says her heir is the king of Francia (who is my old ally).

What will happen when I die?
And how do I stop the petitioners.
And finally how do I cut one of my dukes down to size - I just finished a war to claim all of Mercia but the enemy in that war, after peace, still got to keep his big-ass duchy you should be able to see it in pic related.

I got around an old request about accepting natives. It also solves the problems about immigrants assimilating in native cultures as the act will give some time for all countries to have the primary culture spread enough.

Maybe I will add a few more requirements like an UH that is enough liberal/socialist and some money spending too.

Right now the decision only takes into account natives in your core territories and it can be used only once per country. It means that if you conquer Canada as Brazil, Inuits will not be accepted if you use this decision, unless they move to the amazon. Any natives living in core territory, however, will be considered a country true native and will become accepted.

The beauty of the model is that I don't need to create a decision for each country. One decision will take care of all the natives.
For now, Dixie, Yankee and Texan countries are the only ones excluded from the decision. The country needs to have their capital in americas too.

The Métis are a part of the decision too, I don't remember if they get accepted normally in Canada through normal events, but the decision doesn't repeat itself, so it excludes any accepted cultures.

I don't know how Rylock did that the way it did, but I'm pretty sure all Zulu land ends up being a core one way or the other.

>Also, when will you start working on the Triple Alliance war? Paraguay needs to become OP in case they win desu
Not anytime in the future. I stopped work in SA just before it, but I need to fix a lot of stuff in Chile and the Pacific War and the venezuelan crisis of 1895 before I think to do it, since it's the last big event in south america.

The result of the war in case of a paraguayan victory will be the end of the nation being landlocked, which will open it up for mass immigration.

Marriage. That's literally it, marriage, intrigue and dynastic intrigue. You can start as count in Iceland and get your descendant to be emperor of all of Europe. In theory it's the absolute best part of the Ck2 but in practice I, at least, often find it extremely annoying and boring.

Jesus dude, never give your wife land in your own realm...she doesn't need it, she's there to squeeze out kids.

You know to keep one duchy for yourself, controlling all the lordships and baroness in that duchy? Upgrade the fuck out of that duchy, make it a primary and your heir will always have it unless you go elective and don't keep the Lords happy. Use it as your powerbase to ensure you always have decent personal levy to pull.

Give out everything else to lowborn commoners with good stewardship. ONE TITLE EACH. Once king level, hand out your spare duchy titles too. Only give them to someone that is, de-jure, a part of that duchy. Never give them to random schmucks on the other side of the realm, no matter how much you like them.

Thats about all you need to know to keep your realm stable, relative free from infighting, free from overly powerful vassals, and keep most Lords on good relations with you.

Is my game broken? It says USA starts at #10 spot as secondary power and not at its usual spot as a Great Power. Instead the Ottomans start higher up and Netherlands is #8

Well, I guess "is" is redundant, it is, but how and why? I played a USA game and I as far as I remember I started as a GP and even the wiki says it starts as a GP.

I downloaded the game from the OP, does the OP use some mod that downgrades USA? I'd like to know because I want to play as the UK and focus of my campaign was to be the US but if US starts as a secondary then I can just sphere them and that's way too easy.

There's both "ideas" and "custom_ideas" folders in common folder in your EU4 folder. Go in there and fuck with whatever you want.

The two communities definitely needed segregated. When there was any Civ posted here, there was always some autistic fuck going off on them for playing an "inferior game" and harassing people to play Vicky 2 ... as if anyone takes advice from some uppity tard who just shitposted and shat on your game.

Its the same with some people still here, a lot of them have some sort of fucking autism about "Grand Strategy" games, and get on like they're the highest form of entertainment possible. they seem to be completely incapable of understanding that if the mood takes you, there are other genres to play that are enjoyable with their own goals. I only dread to think what some of the, shall we say, "most spergy" Vicky 2 posters do with their spare time when they're not in the mood to play it. Probably go and fap off in bookstores to atlases or some shit.

Anyway, I enjoy both, they both have their merits and downsides, just depends on what mood you're in.

Vicky 2 is a great game and definitely up there in my game of the year of all years list, but after 2 fucking thousand hours, it feels like there is nothing else to milk out of it.

So I'm at war with the hre emperor and it's been going on for ages, I've fully sieged half of italy, his capital and destroyed his armies constantly and even had enough time to assasinate about 4 hre emperors then I noticed the warscore was actually going down and i've got -100% emperor still controls the holy roman emperor, what does it even fucking mean do i have to literally siege every province

No, Entre-Rios, whoch was one of their ambitions. They would porbably cement their posistion in Mato Grosso too.
Dunno about Uruguay. Probably a puppet? I will do a peace treaty event to handle it all, so there will be more than one option.

There's not really a good way to represent that, I thought about it a few times. I'd like to do it without new tags, but that would be impossible
>>
>>121409789
Damn this goes a long way to explaining why there's so many fucking useless puppet states in your mod if you seriously can't imagine a way to represent a civil war without adding in tags.

Just make a fucking custom rebel type jesus christ.

None of the cantons seceded or even wanted political independence, create an event where a province with a Catholic majority can get a modifier that jacks up militancy and rebel growth and and a custom rebel type, when they win force a conservative government with some sort of administrative efficiency malus to represent decentralization. Boom there you go dynamic Sonderbund without forcing it to be railroaded or adding in useless tags. Have some imagination.

I've done something similar with them and it's not that bad desu
>take the university reform first
>take the productivity NV
>westernize in the 1860s
>decide the priorities will be education up to biologism, aesthetics, naval bases, railroads, chemistry and occasionaly forts
>suck up Japan until they take me off the French sphere and add me
>go on a punitive expedition against China where Japan does all the work
>they win it for me, but I don't take any treaty port, so I basically cut them down to size for less than 5 infamy
>ca$hca$hca$h
>kickstart industry, build railroads, forts and naval bases with Chinese blood
>fully fund soldiers and piss off my people for healthcare reforms until I can afford 10 brigades
>see Zanzibar survived the Scramble, but just the islands; the rest were already German colonies
>conquer them
>build a naval base there
>start building a shitload of frigates as they'll be my infantry for the rest of the game
>proceed to Ironclads after a while
>secondary power mainly to prestige and boats
Sure I got bored and gave up then, but it really isn't as bad as it looks. If I wanted I think I could take the French and Brittish Islands all around the Indian Ocean and end up in the top 8 industry for building factories on foreign soil with Chinese money by endgame, as well as top 10 military and top 2 prestige. It sure was an interesting playthrough, I'll probably finish it off this weekend.

>one lasted
One went from an Empire where the sun never sets to a bunch of islands where the sun never rises.

The other had 2/3 of the Americas at its hands and let it slip away... and Portugal... and soon Catalonia.

Both went to shit.

Dear HPM, or whoever else has modding experience:
What exactly is it that defines a state as a slave state or though? South Carolina has a bunch of slaves defined in the POP file, but for whatever reason they aren't a slave state in-game. I thought at first I just had to alter the province files, but even though I put
is_slave = yes
in both provinces, SC still isn't a slave state. What do I do?

They couldn't seceded because they weren't centralized.

> or even wanted political independence
Sonderbund literally means "Separatist League".


Making it just a "conservative government with some sort of administrative efficiency malus to represent decentralization" is just a shoddy, lazy work to represent a separatist push and war. This kind of lazy work is not something I want in HPM.

I hope you're happy /gsg/. Tomorrow I'll work on it more. Give me ideas for flavor today and I'll do it all.

Oh and if anybody has all of the Nowa Polska pictures, send them to me so when I finish this minimod, I can make a hopefully close copy.

Goodnight /gsg/

>They couldn't secede because they weren't centralized
literally what? They could have tried to declare independence, withdrawn from the federation, forcibly separated themselves from the rest of the cantons, they didn't. What the words literally mean in German is irrelevant when what they were trying to do wasn't leave Switzerland but stop Switzerland from changing into a more centralized state, representing that with separate tags would be ridiculous.

That solution was 30 seconds of brainstorming without having modded vicky in a few months, if you feel like you can come up with something better please do, don't just slap in extra tags and some railroaded events or call it impossible because you can't think of anything though.

In Vicky 2, if you make entire armies filled with soldiers of a certain ethnic group, and those armies get slaughtered, does that ethnic pop go down in numbers corresponding to how many were in the army? Asking for a Serbian friend.

>>
>>121412427
Yes, each pop is its own person, so if a Serbian potato farmer becomes a soldier the amount of potato farmers goes down and if potato soldier dies then the number of Serbs goes down.
