You could do what I did, just raise the amount of States you can have under the Technology pointers and make every possible state. You may need to keep the Minimum Money on though if you make too many. But minimum Autonomy is 0% on States, so no more issues.Jasinn wrote: ↑Sat Jan 19, 2019 4:06 pmAny way to make the autonomy and devastation modifier work only for your nation's provinces? Because when I'm in a war, and I click on an enemy's province while having the autonomy freezed to 0, they immediately lose the "War Exhaustion" from devastation and autonomy .
Another neat trick is to set your Prestige insanely high (99999 or something). It will cause all negative relations to decay within a year, including Aggressive Expansion.
I have to say though, the game is obviously not made to conquer the whole map. In order to prevent micro-managing during war, my Client States have to be so large that they start off with a 100% Desire for Independence. Or you'd have a lot of small Vassals in your territory (taking the Too Many Diplomatic Relations hit). Not to mention the bat crap crazy amount of time it takes to do.
Then again, my one-province South American native tribe has now conquered half the known world, taken the Mandate from Heaven away from China and is well on its way to reconstituting the Roman Empire. All while converting every province's culture and religion. That'll show those pesky Europeans.
I kinda wish there was a way to make it so I never lose a besieged territory. When in a war it's annoying when they start taking back their territories. I suppose I could scatter small armies as placeholders (not too small, AI superstacks kill them even with god-mode), but it would be nice if player territories would simply never fall to a siege (in other words, siege status never reaches 100?). Especially with those armies that just flee between two territories and besiege them until you beat them a 100 times. I call that a bug. If they flee, they should not be allowed to start another siege until they've gone back into their own territory. I guess I'm just spoiled.
