Expansion features

  • Diplomatic Feedback: There is now a new interface in the diplomacy view called 'Diplomatic Feedback'. Here you can set your attitude towards other nations, see what provinces they are interested in conquering and see their Trust towards you and the amount of Favors they owe. Favors are gained by being allies and helping each other in war, and can be used to raise Trust or to call them into your wars. You can also set provinces as being of interest to your nation, so that AI allies know to give them to you in peace deals.
  • Estates: Nearly all countries now have Estates, representing powerful groupings in the country such as the Nobility or the Priesthood. Estates have a loyalty and influence level, and can control territory, granting various benefits at the cost of local autonomy. A powerful estate will have significant effects on the country that are good or bad depending on whether they are loyal or not. Estates that grow extremely powerful will attempt to seize power in the country or break away to form their own nation.
  • Native Policies: You can now choose a policy for you handle the native population in colonies between Coexistance, Trading or Repression, with each giving a different benefit.
  • Threaten War: Adds a diplomatic option to let you demand a province that you have a claim or core on. If the demand is accepted, the province is yours, otherwise war ensues.
  • Force Migration: Added a new casus belli that lets you force a migratory neighbor to move to another province.
  • Concede Colonial Area: Added a new peace option available when you have a Colonial Nation to take all provinces owned by the enemy in that region.
  • Advanced Change Culture: Allows you to restore cultures or change to neighboring ones at reduced costs, rather than only the primary culture.
  • Declare Colonial War: When declaring war, you can now choose to make the war a Colonial War against overseas opponents. This disables calling in your allies, but allows you to call in your protectorates. The enemy can still call their allies as normal.
  • Name Your Heir: You can now name your heirs, and a button is available to re-roll another random name.
  • Horde Unity: Horde Unity is a new mechanic that for hordes replaces legitimacy. It decreases at a steady rate and must be maintained via looting and razing provinces.
  • Raze: Hordes can now Raze non-core provinces that they own. Razing a province lowers its development permanently and gives the Horde monarch power relative to the amount of development razed.
  • Tengri: Tengri nations can now pick a Syncretic Faith from among the religions in their provinces and neighbours. Provinces of the Syncretic Faith are treated exactly as though they were Tengri, using Tolerance of the True Faith, and countries of that religion will view the Tengri nation as though they were their own faith. The national bonuses for being Tengri differs based on which Syncretic Faith is picked, with a different set for each religion.
  • Grant Province: Added a new subject interaction that lets you grant a province to a subject.
  • Grant Core/Claim: Added a new subject interaction that lets you grant one of your cores or claims to a subject.
  • Build Directly to Army/Navy: Clicking the "+" buttons in the Army Panel will build a unit, move it to and merge it with the selected unit.
  • Build in Subjects: It is now possible to recruit armies and build ships in your subjects' lands, as long as their Liberty Desire is below 50%.
  • Distribute Spoils: When signing peace, gold and prestige is now distributed between allies according to war participation, instead of all of it going to war leader.
  • Victory Cards: Countries at 300 development or more will now get Victory Cards every 100 years from 1450 and forward, that will grant 1000, 2000,3000 & finally 4000 points if they are held. A victory card requires you to own, control & core an entire area, and will be randomly picked from nearby areas of possible rivals.
  • Study Technology: New spy action that allows you to send a spy to a more technologically advanced country to study their technology, granting +1 monarch power per month in each category where they are ahead by at least 2 techs.
  • Agitate for Liberty added: New spy action that allows you to send a spy to raise the Liberty Desire of another nation's subject.
  • Added events for Tengri Syncretic Faiths.
  • Added events for the different Estates.
  • Transfer Occupation is now available to players with The Cossacks, even if they do not have Art of War.
  • Disabled Sell Province to subjects when Cossacks DLC is enabled since Grant Province is a more fleshed out alternative.
