Re: Europa Universalis IV: Greatest game of all time

Daer, how much would it cost me to get you to print me a copy?

This discussion got me thinking that I want some ancient maps. Since I am of Chinese descent I wanted to find high res images of ancient Chinese maps (apparently Chinese people weren't into making maps or aren't into scanning them into high res images).

I found this

https://www.geographicus.com/P/Antiq...tong-qing-1811

I have no idea if the site is legit. But it's asking for $425,000.00 for an 1811 Qing Chinese "Blue Map of China" (really of everything China's found).

There is an "ADD TO CART" red button. I'd appreciate it if one of you adds this map to your collection and then get an insanely high resolution scan of it. I'm sure displate.com will print a really nice copy for me on metal.

Some historical maps of China here: https://www.davidrumsey.com/luna/ser...ll/where/China

Also on a whim this afternoon I'm printing a 27.5" x 27.5" picture of the Zelda: Link to the Past overworld.

Assuming there wasn't a War for Independence, Naples could have been overrun by rebels or the Aragon monarch could have died while Naples had a negative opinion of them. Check if Aragon has a Restoration of Union CB on Naples. Or if they didn't go to war yet Aragon and Naples have a peace treaty then Aragon could have released them voluntarily but I'm not sure that is even something the AI will do.

Re: Europa Universalis IV: Greatest game of all time

The AI does do that if the vassal + supporters is much more powerful than the overlords coalition or if the overlord‘s war exhaustion is very high.
I‘be seen it happen with Sweden a lot. Naples seems to be too weak, especially if Aragon is allied to Castille and three years seems to be to short for Aragon to become extremely war exhausted.

If junior partner's pretender rebels enforce demands, the PU ends as the pretender becomes a ruler.

Re: Europa Universalis IV: Greatest game of all time

Yeah colonization is noticeably slower since the xpac. It's just so ****ing stupid, I have no idea why they did that. But ENVOY TRAVEL TIME BONUSES so, yay? I've had much better results mostly just taking the lands of indigenous peoples in NA/CA and focusing colonists on Africa and Spice Islands.

I'm in a good spot either way as I vassalized Portugal early on and got lucky and inherited France, so GB is my only real competition for CN lands now. I'm about to declare on them tonight as they're getting too big for their britches. I would have done that sooner but I stupidly let myself get caught up in the religious wars by inadvertently joining the Catholic League (it was seriously a misclick) and somehow Ottomans were also part of that for some reason, on the Protestant side. Ottos have pushed deep into eastern Europe and Austria is on life support, that'll be a problem.
