Missing Cultures[edit]

I don't know why, but it curiously seems that all individual Mesoamerican, Caribbean and Australian cultures are mysteriously missing from the Individual Culture map. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Additions[edit]

I added the Basque, Burman, Carribean, Cen. American, Dravidian, East Aryan, East Asian, Finno-Ugric, Hindusthani, Iranian, Malay, Mon Khmer, Nor. American, Pacific, South American, Thai & West Aryan culture groups. Will probably be changed when the game comes out, due to localization inconsistencies. -Pinpinolo (too lazy to make an account right now :p)

Oh, thanks, you made me and the others a lot of great work. Why don't you make an account? It's free and it's even without email address. It's better than see IP address for sure. --Wrongovernmentype (talk) 09:35, 13 August 2013 (CEST)

Crusader Kings II Cultures[edit]

Should the cultures of Crusader Kings II be added? For example I noticed that the Alans are part of the Byzantine Culture group but aren't up there and as are many other cultures.Jedikiller1 16:18, 17 November 2013 (CET)


There is when you convert a game from CK2 a horse nation in the Falklands it is ruled by king Glitterhof and is a part of Lost cultures --185.66.193.28 17:17, 9 May 2018 (CEST)

Of date example[edit]

"Note that culture groups are not just based on linguistic criteria - for example, Hungarian is classified as West Slavic owing to cultural similarities, rather than Finno-Ugric. ". In 1,6 Hungarian is not West Slavic.

CK2 imported cultures[edit]

Should we make a section for cultures that come from CK2 the way the religions and denominations has a page like that?

Malayan[edit]

I think there is some misunderstanding here, first, Malays is not a race, they're rather an ethnic groups, the same status and degree alongside with Javanese, Sundanese, and Sulawesian, there is more accepted terms is "Austronesian"... and also, Sundanese are not Javanese, in terms of ethnicity, culturally and linguistically (although the Sundanese were native in Java island) you should differ the terms between 'Javanese' and 'Javan'... Javanese is an ethnic group, while Javan is a terms for all people that live or come from Java island, regardless their ethnicity... Mufidkce (talk) 08:32, 4 March 2015 (CET)

Unfortunetly, that is how the game files refer to them and group them. Christopholes (talk) 08:43, 4 March 2015 (CET)
Hi, Mufidkce.
This Wiki describes the world of Europa Universalis IV. This world does not match reality – not as a whole, and certainly not in the details. – Lillebror (talk) 08:47, 4 March 2015 (CET)
It is irrelevant to the wiki that certain cultures are in the wrong category in-game as compared to reality. We have to write about the game; not reality. If someone wants to know about cultures in real life, they can read Wikipedia.
You might want to start a thread about the issue on the forums, but the wiki is not the place to complain about this kind of thing. ~ Meneth (talk) 15:17, 4 March 2015 (CET)

Dominant Culture[edit]

How is defined the dominant culture? By base tax or by number of provinces? Stigni (talk) 10:50, 24 July 2015 (CEST)

Read the decision you've just transcluded, it says by base tax. Dauth (talk) 11:16, 24 July 2015 (CEST)
I found the inconsistency between the section and the decision. In the txt file there is: dominant_culture = capital. But is not clear what it means. Stigni (talk) 21:17, 24 July 2015 (CEST)
To be able to take the decision the capital must have the dominant (by base tax) culture, thus a nation with most base tax in culture A would not be allowed to take the decision if the capital had culture B. Dauth (talk) 21:23, 24 July 2015 (CEST)

Up to date for 1.16[edit]

Culture mechanics have barely changed since the Cossacks added changing to cultures other than primary, added relations hits for conversion and got rid of primary nations disabling conversion. Made a few edits since the comment box is limited in characters, but almost all of my edits were just adding little bits of information and marking sections as up to date for 1.16.

I can't however seem to get rid of the "This section may contain outdated information..." disclaimers for the sub-sections in "Penalties for unaccepted cultures" since they don't seem to be on the edit page. They haven't changed since 1.15 which is when they were last verified for. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Skauld (Talk) 03:52, 11 April 2016‎ (CET)

They're part of the bonus table template and are handled on that page instead. Dauth (talk) 10:57, 12 April 2016 (CEST)
The mechanics may not have changed, but the culture maps definately need updating. Russian isn't a single culture any more but made up of 'Muscovoite', 'Novgorodian', 'Ryzanian' etc. Rygel8472 (talk) 16:37, 3 May 2016 (CEST)

Statistics section[edit]

Is anyone attached to this section? Otherwise I would suggest deleting it. Dauth (talk) 10:57, 12 April 2016 (CEST)

That section might be more useful in the Nation designer page. Move it and leave note/link? ~ SolSys (talk) 11:17, 12 April 2016 (CEST)
I think it is probably better there than here. I'm not totally convinced we need to keep it. Dauth (talk) 11:29, 12 April 2016 (CEST)
Since they're so outdated, updating is harder than making new data. They have been removed. Dauth (talk) 12:18, 12 April 2016 (CEST)
Thet statistics section was incredibly useful for looking for culture groups that were good for cultural unions, and cultures that were good for not culture convert away, and now promote instead. It's more useful than any strategy section on this wiki. There's no viable alternative than making your own statistics, or looking it up on this page in the internet archives, but that requires you to know about that. I think it could aid a lot of players if it was added back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DairyCakeFarmer (talk) 02:25, 18 January 2017‎ (CET)
There have been a lot of changes since patch 1.13 which have influenced these statistics. But if it helps, here is the link. – Lillebror (talk) 08:41, 18 January 2017 (CET)

Outdated decisions and events tab?[edit]

Was looking through the culture conversion cost modifiers, "Drive the Tatars Back" no longer seems to be a mission in the Russia mission tree (according to both the the wiki article and my own observation). Not sure if it has been totally removed or still perhaps exist as an event for conquering Tatar tags, or when the mission was removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seymour Skinner (talk) 01:21, 30 July 2020‎ (CEST)

The section is marked as last verified for patch 1.25. What that means … – Lillebror (talk) 05:21, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
