Administrative Ideas[edit source]
There has been talk that both coring costs and duration is reduced. Can somsone confirm? ~ Sweethalcyhs (talk)
Needs update[edit source]
This page needs seriously be revisited. Many things have change. For example 36 ADM for non accepted ...--Tonton Orion (talk) 08:46, 3 September 2013 (CEST)
Exactly. i.e.: Colonies automatically receive cores from the colonizing nation. If it is handed over to a colonial nation, the colonizing nation's core is automatically changed into colonial nation core. I am not aware of the reduced overseas same culture reduction, as this would no longer stand for colonies. ~ 28 February 2014 Tai-Shu
No more automatic cores as of 1.9. Coring costs for overseas provinces have also increased to 50%. Unsure about different culture requirement though. If someone could confirm, that'll be great. --Grifen88 (talk) 13:37, 14 December 2014 (CET)
the info about the time required for coring should be updated... coring distant provinces that are considered colonies is something around 1.5 years 10:13, 20 January 2015 (CET)
colony core cost[edit source]
can someone explain the cost of a core? (and add it to the article)
A Shia nation in the Iberian peninsula, custom nation.
12 development finished province.
Total cost: 26
Development value: 9.3 - colony (why?)
War exhaustion: +3.5%

Capital = Angra Pequena (south africa) Colony = St. Helena (a lone island to the west of south africa) Gendalf (talk) 21:07, 14 June 2015 (CEST)
HRE Emperor can core liberated HRE land, even without a land bridge. I don't know the precise restrictions on how it works though. Puchacz (talk) 09:49, 3 September 2015 (CEST)
If a country is destroyed, it loses all wrong-culture group cores.[edit source]
How does this work? I full-annexed a country, but its cores still exist in the world.. it would be really helpful as a matter of getting rid of the core creation cost modifiers on some of the conquered provinces in 1 war, if it actually worked. Gendalv (talk) 14:38, 25 September 2015 (CEST)
- The cores still take the aforementioned time to vanish, it's not immediate. This also doesn't work if the provinces you took are of a culture that the now destroyed nation was the primary nation of. Hovering over the cores should yield this information afaik. --Phibs (talk) 15:18, 25 September 2015 (CEST)
Land Bridges[edit source]
Been spending some time examining the specifics of the land bridge function, seems the reality listed here isn't entirely correct.
There are 2 types of land bridges, one that functions like it currently states(through controlled provinces), except that the bridge has to be directly connected to the capital, not merely to a core.
The other type requires a land connection to an owned and controlled coastal core, through owned provinces, but otherwise completely ignores occupation. It's range inland is limited by colonial range, though the colonial range is based on direct distance, not effective distance, so even if a province is only connected to the coastal core through some provinces that are out of colonial range, if their direct distance to the coastal core is within the range, it can still be cored.
Colonization of empty land connected through the first type of land bridge is also possible without having an adjacent core. --BaZERGer (talk) 23:53, 25 February 2016 (CET)
Gaining core through religion-themed event[edit source]
The page states that:
"If a nation has completed Religious Ideas and is occupying a province of their religion which is owned by a nation of a different religion, they have a small chance of gaining the province as a core; a full core, even if the province is in a territory."
This information is incorrect or outdated. In 1.30.3, I was playing as Mysore and while fighting against Muslim nations with Hindu provinces, there were two occasions when I gained a free core on one of my enemy's provinces through a pop-up that allowed me to "support the local Hindu population" or something like that. However, contrary to the article text, I did not have Religious ideas completed, or even started. I am an inexperienced player so I don't know if there was anything special to my situation that allowed this to happen. I think some more investigation is needed.
