Development Diary - 30th of June 2016



The skies are blue, the sun is shining and Sweden is very nearly shut down for Summer. I'm not kidding, this whole country just turns off in July like you pulled out its batteries. None the less, before the great productivity purge we're here for one more development diary for Europa Universalis IV.

A fair few forumites were clairvoyant enough to predict this after we added Ruler Personalities. Indeed, as part of the upcoming expansion we will have Leader Traits



At the conclusion of any battle the leader involved has a chance to gain a trait. This trait will, unlike Ruler Personalities, always be a bonus. Current chance of gaining a trait is set to 2% multiplied by the Army Tradition gain from a battle (this, like most numbers during development, is subject to balance changes) which can be set in the defines.

Leaders are limited to one trait each and that trait will affect all units under their command. In battle, the trait of the commanding general (the one whose shock/fire pips are used) will affect all units on their side.

Some of the traits:
Goal Orientated:+10% Movement Speed
Hardy Warrior: -20% Attrition
Siege Specialist: +15% Siege Ability
Born to the Saddle: +50% Cavalry Flanking Range



Of course, Admirals can gain traits too. Same rules as generals except the chance is based on naval tradition from battles.

Buccaneer: +25% Privateering Efficiency
Prize hunter: +5% chance of capturing enemy ships
Ironside: +5% Ship Durability
Extortioner: + 15% Light Ship Trade Power



There are 22 traits in total, many with combat modifiers which have been added to the game for use in modding (and in National Idea changes which we will show later). It's worth noting that Heirs, Monarchs, Conquistadors and Explorers can also gain traits from combat.

Leader Traits are a paid feature in the upcoming [name removed] expansion. There are many more features and changes to come but you're going to have to hold out for 5 weeks on more news since as I mentioned, this country is going to shut down for a month. I'll be back with the next dev diary in the first week of August.



Great generals are like Swedish Summer, never lasting quite as long as you want.

Development Diary - 23rd of June 2016



Hello and welcome to today's development diary for Europa Universalis IV. It's actually a well earned(?) day off for me but I'm doing a once unthinkable thing and working a bit from home. Last week I said we would take a look at a very influential dynasty of the time period. Sorry to disappoint all the Velikopermsky and Dandani fans out there, but I had the Osmanoglus on my mind.

It would be an understatement to say that the Ottomans gave the world a good shaking in this time period. Furthermore, they are one of the more commonly played nations in EUIV. We wanted to give them a little something to bring out their unique flavour since it was always a shame that they are a run-of-the-mill Sultanate. It has also been pointed out on numerous occasions the oddity of a situation where you have the Ottoman nation..without an Osmanoglu at the helm.

So to that end, in the still-unnamed upcoming expansion we have added a unique government type for them: The Ottoman Sultanate.

The Ottoman Sultanate does not generate heirs like normal monarchies do. The ruler of the Ottoman Sultanate will have their own Harem to ensure the dynasty lives on. At the age of 30, your ruler will select one of his sons to be the heir to the throne. They will, of course, be of your dynasty



So an Ottoman Sultanate shall always be blessed by the strong line of Osmanoglus. That is to say unless the Sultan dies without an heir. In that case, they'll still end up with an Osmanoglu. "Blessed" can be a relative term here.



There are a couple dozen events accompanying this unique government type to simulate the power struggle and intrigue of such a succession system and should add a couple of fangs to that already formidable Ottomans.

While this is unique to the Ottomans, any modders out there can easily allow this for other government types with the has_harem = yes line.

I feel like we're on a roll when it comes to governments and rulers so here's another thing for today's Development Diary. Abdication.

Yes, it has long been a requested feature in Europa Universalis. When Enrique or his low-stat kind just refuses to die you can abdicate and let your next in line take over. This requires you to have an of-age heir and to have either ruled for 25 years or be 60+ years old. It will come with a considerable hit to your legitimacy/unity and prestige but I think we've all had times where we wanted our monarch to Die Please Die.




Ottoman Sultanate and Abdication are both paid features in the upcoming expansion which we have magically managed to keep unleaked name-wise.

I've been mentioning a lot of paid features lately but it's good to remind ourselves that with all the paid expansions come free bugfixes and features from the accompanying patch. A small change that will be coming up in 1.18 that I want to share is to do with succession wars. I'm not to happy with how right now, they have two conclusions: Either the new overlord keeps their union or the nation fighting them over it take leadership over the union for themselves. Now, we will add a peace option which simply breaks the union for all parties involved.



Simple, sensible, and added free in 1.18 for those times where you just want to keep the status quo. Warscore cost scales with the junior partner's size.

Happy midsummer everyone, I'm off to....oh, right, I need to tease upcoming Diaries. Hrmm~ Well, we've touched a lot on rulers but would you believe it, we're not quite done with the changes in the throne room. We'll come to that in the future. As for next week, we'll switch it up on the battlefield. See you then!

Fantastic grand strategy game. The paradox dlc policy may be annoying, but it doesn't make this game any worse. Very historical, yet has a sandbox- feel to it. Absolutely recommended

Hello community.

Europa Universalis IV. Wow.

To be rewiev this fairly I need to tell you a little bit about my gaming history, to get you to know my perspective.

At 10 years of age, my beloved mother brought for me a copy of Age of Empires(yes AoE1) and the expansion Rise of Rome. Two years later I got the big paper box containing Age of Empires 2. This set the tone for my gameing preferenses, strategy. This was back in 2001 if I remember correctly. So during these years playing alot of different strategy games has set it's stamp on me. I like to be able to customize my gameplay as I like it, I need alot of features and alot of replayability.

Games like Knights of Honor, HoMM-franchice and the wonderful Total War series has definitly made me a happy gamer during my years playing these(and other amazing games too).

BUT.

There has always been something missing for me. Modding has definitly helped in this regard, custom maps in Warcraft 3, mods for Total War and (like it or not) the many expansions and later DLC's. But yeah something has always made me want more.

Then I played EU4.

At first I was very confused (we've all been there right?). But as my knowledge progressed so did my excitement. You probably get what im coming at. There is absolutley nothing I can think of to improve add or change, there is nothing this game does'nt have that really needs to be added when it comes to grand strategy.

This is a grand strategy game if I may put it in a box. And it really makes other "grand" strategy games seem kinda lackluster and plain. To actually devote a team to a game based purely on simulation and management in a age like this, when almost every game released is selled on graphics, is really amazing. The lack of battles for you to play an active role in is not noticable once you feel the thrill of reinforcing your army the last seconds before they would've routed. The lack of good graphics is nothing comprared to when you finally add that last zone to your empire. The lack of Different maps is soon forgotten once you finally understand how the trading system work and what comes with that.

To sit on the bus with a very good firend and argue about where you should draw your borders, or which one of you that should colonize where, is awesome. That Im also a hobby historian, does only increase the joy I get from this game.

This is a really biased rewiev, yes, I know. But im comprareing to the strategy game genre. And that is what really matters to me, the strategy options in a strategy game.

Would I say 10/10 for a strategy enthusiast? Yes. Especially with a friend that you can play with.

To a new player it will seem really hard, and also might be a bit overwhelming to the point of loosing interest quickly. The many DLCs and that extra cost will not ease you into liking this game. It's is not perfect, but it's rather good nontheless.

This is it.
I will not check this for errors as Im pretty sure you guys will get my point anyway. Remember that this is also my own opinion which im entitled to have.

Thank you for reading, and good luck in game.


Peace

Are you looking for a game to stimulate your inner Ruler?
Are you looking for a game that you can play over more than 1000hours?
Are you looking to get good at German geography?
Look no further!
This game has only now gotten abit boring after over 1,1k hours!
It has amazing replayability as no game is similiar to the other.
Over hundreds of nations to play in diffrent situations and with a Steam Workshop that is very vast from adding simple rivers to complete overhauls.
It has been an amazing journey with this game and with the new Cossack DLC coming out along with a patch the game should add me another 15-30 hours of gameplay.

Since I've been quite positive about this game, maybe it's time for some contrast and negativity.
The game takes very long to play which could be a con to some as it is a very slowpaced game.
The game is very DLC heavy from things like expansions to unit and music packs.
The game can be pretty CPU heavy if you run it at high speed.
It has some issues with crashing, but aslong as you make it through loadingscreens you should be able to run it smooth, so whatever you do. Do not ALT + Tab this game in a loading screen. Even if it seems as it has crashed just wait and it should recover
The game has no story whatsoever so it might not fit all whom are not interested in a historical sandbox.

But overall this game is a 9/10 or maybe even a 10/10 if you manage to get it running good.
