Treaty of Tordesillas
The Treaty of Tordesillas mechanic attempts to represent the [[Wikipedia:Treaty of Tordesillas|historical treaty]] made between Portugal and Spain which assigned lands east or west of a certain longitude to Portugal or Spain, respectively.
 
Note that due to a bug with the way the treaty works, all AI Catholic nations will refuse to declare war on other nations in the region as long as the country with the claim is catholic. For example, if Portugal claims the carribean and remains catholic, no AI catholic nation will declare war on any nation in the carribean, unless they are a rival. The AI will be locked to neutral attitude regardless of how low their opinion is, and even if the AI has a militarist personality. They will not desire any provinces in the area as well, although they may still expand peacefully with colonists.
 
This applies even if the nation with the claim is the colonial nation's overlord, for example if Portugal has a colonial nation in Mexico, they will refuse to attack the primitives in the area and will be locked into neutral attitude as long as they are catholic, or Portugal (who has the claim) is catholic.
 
There is a workaround but it involves editing a savegame to replace the nations with the colonial claims.
 
1. Save the game without compressing it.
 
2. Open the save game with a text editor like notepad ++, the save game folder is in Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\save games
 
3.ctrl+f and search for colony_claim={ . There should be only one entry. It will look something like this :
 
colony_claim={
--- --- --- --- --- --- --- POR --- --- --- SPA --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ---
}
 
4. From what I can tell, the --- are where the tags for the colonial claim is supposed to be, so in the example above, POR and SPA have claimed two regions.
 
5. Changing it back to --- wont help because the colonial regions will just get auto-claimed again. The key is that the treaty only goes into effect if the country with the claim is catholic, so change it to something like this :
 
colony_claim={
REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB REB
}
 
6. REB is a special tag and it doesnt count as catholic, so catholic CNs will behave normally and expand like other religions. This means that you wont get the +10 colonial growth for claiming a region, but thats a small price to pay for catholic CNs working normally.
