EU4 Development Diary - 4th February 2016



Hello everyone, and welcome to another Europa Universalis development diary. We are now working fully towards 1.16 and our next big expansion. While I’ve always been the lead designer for EU4, I’m now the project lead for this expansion, as Wiz has moved to another project.

One of the biggest changes in concept is the introduction of sailors. Sailors represent the trained seamen of a nation. Sailors differ from manpower both in what they are used for, and in how you get them. Only coastal provinces provide sailors, and the amount of sailors depend on total development in that province. Sailors are required when constructing new ships, and when ships are “repaired”. Of course not all ships require the same amount of sailors, with heavy ships needing the most and transports the least.

Docks and Drydocks now provide 50% and 100% more sailors from their provinces instead of increasing forcelimits, while Shipyards and Grand Shipyards have been redesigned to increase naval forcelimits & decrease shipbuilding times in those provinces.

Natural Harbours and Coastal Trade Centers increase the amount of sailors you get from a province, while Merchant marine now gives +50% Sailors & Press Gangs now give +20% Sailor Recovery. Some nations also have ideas giving them more Sailors from their provinces with Netherlands and Norway having the biggest boosts at +25%. There are also policies, parliament issues & norse gods boosting your sailor pool as well.




If you have the expansion, you also gain sailors from occupying another nation’s coastal provinces, even if your maximum possible pool is not increased.

One of the most feared things in europe in this time-period was the arrival of slave raiders from the north african coast. Countless villages were razed and millions of europeans were sold in slavery in Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli & Istanbul until the European nations were finally able to stop it at the middle of the 19th century by simply conquering the North African coast.

Now Barbary Nations lose their 10% cheaper ship tradition, and they gained the ability to raid for slaves. Raiding for Slaves is now something fleets can do at sea, where they gain money and sailors from coastal provinces that are not their allies or subjects. To raid a coastal province, you need be able to blockade it with that fleet, and you can only raid a province once every ten years. The efficiency of raiding is reduced by fleets on pirate hunting patrol. Raiding of course hurts your relation with the owner of provinces you raid.

The reason for why you get sailors from raids, is that plenty of them historically ended up chained to an oar at a galley.





Next week, we’ll take a deep look at how we have redesigned the espionage system.

Development Diary - 28th January 2016



Hello everyone, today we’ll start talking about 1.16 and what it will contain. The development team is busy working on 1.15.1 at the same time, which we hope is out ASAP.

One of the fun part of working on the Europa Universalis series over the last decade has been the constant evolvement of the map. Today we’re proud to announce some of the map changes for 1.16, with a quick look of Europe.

Ireland in Crusader Kings II is known as tutorial island, as an entire game in itself. In EU so far, ireland have not been properly represented, and more been shown as poor as it became after a long time of english rule. Now Ireland is richer in 1444, and not just a quick conquest for England within 5 years. Ireland also have 9 provinces, where it had five before, and several new interesting nations to play.




We’ve also tweaked the map to better borders and provinces in Hungary, and I hope you’ll enjoy this setup.


We also made a complete overhaul of how cultures work to remove the ties to language, and tie them more together to similar cultures, to create more historically plausible countries and relations.



Now, for some community fun, try to find as many changes on the map compared to 1.15 in this screenshot and list below!



Next week I’m back talking about a new concept that is getting in the game for 1.15, which can be seen in the topbar on these screenshoys.

Europa Universalis IV is historische simulatie die je aan het roer plaatst van een laat-middeleeuws of vroegmoderne natie (rijk, bisdom, hertogdom,...). De bedoeling is om je rijk uit te bouwen, te verdedigen tegen je buren en economisch te ontwikkelen. Laat je niet afschrikken door de steile leercurve. Je eerste spel maak je sowieso diverse cruciale fouten, maar beschouw het als leergeld dat betaald moet worden. De volgende spelletjes zullen veel vlotter gaan en al snel zul je merken dat het spel zeer verslavend wordt. Niet alleen de keuze uit diverse naties zorgen hiervoor, maar ook de verschillende speelstijlen (koloniseren vs. agressieve expansie ten koste van je buurnaties, handelsnatie of productienatie,...), de verschillende religieuze evenementen, ... Zo is geen enkel spel volledig hetzelfde en biedt dit videospel feitelijk oneindige herspeelbaarheid.

Net als bij elke Europa Universalis zijn er weer heel veel mogelijke DLC's te kopen. Als je een keuze moet maken, laat dan zuiver esthetische liggen (de fameuze unit packs) en koop dan zeker Wealth of Nations en Art of War. Deze laatste zorgt er onder andere voor dat je als kleine natie je grote coalitiepartners wat meer kunt sturen in oorlogen. Ook de muziek DLC's zijn interessant aangezien ze wat afwisseling bieden in de dagen die je gaat doorbrengen achter je PC eens je dit spel hebt gekocht.

This Game is a must have for every Strategy lover!!
I was always a big fan of Total War games, dont get me wrong, i still am, but after playing Paradox Games, Total war series are in Big picture Easy games!! Europa Universalis 4 is a complex game, you have to manage evrything, but if you dont want to do that, there is an option not to do so. You have endless possibilities in this game, you can decide to go colonize, form Italy, Germany, whatever... You dont like war? Start a Trading Nation and make economic warfare, ...

Its hard to explain how the game works, and the first time you play this game you want to shut it down because it looks all very complicated... But watch tutorials, ask friends for help, and you will never regret buying this game!
