Colonial maintenance[edit]

Can someone figure out what the percentage increases on colony maintenance are? I think for every colony after the second, upkeep costs are increased. Pleas confirm.
From what the tooltip says, costs are increased per colony beyond your number of colonists. So you have three colonists, the cost starts increasing with the fourth colony. -- 02:04, 21 August 2013 (CEST)


Does someone want a map of the Trade nodes and routes? I didn't figure out how to upload the file here.-- 02:04, 21 August 2013 (CEST) http://i39.tinypic.com/33uzt6f.png


There is, in my opinion, too much detailed info on this page regarding the details of the different types of income. These details should be on the subpages (tax, trade, production, tariffs ...), while the Economy page provides an overview of the categories, short introductions and general discussion what factors are important for economical well being, depending on country size, tech group, etc. ...

I think that's the endgame for most of the 'topic' articles like Economy, Land Warfare etc. etc. Good job with the Production article. Next important one would probably be Taxation.--General Baker Great Britain.png (Talk | Contribs) 12:39, 17 September 2013 (CEST)

Effect of interest on number of loans[edit]

Played as France and was unlocking Economic Ideas 4 'Debt and Loans' which lowers interest by -1, thought it was a rather underwhelming effect, just like for Hansa or Austria. Decided to document it and it appears lowering interest also increases maximum number of loans available. Included the economy tab in case it's also related to income in some fashion.

inflation from the peace deal money[edit]

how much exactly? is it % from my income? is it affected by trade income? is it based on total money I have currently? etc 13:41, 23 January 2015 (CET)

Interest expense[edit]

How is the monthly payment calculated? The 4% base is total loan interest - the extra money you owe on top of the loan amount. There's a difference between interest on the loan and interest as how much you're repaying monthly. And as I understand the bankruptcy declaration depends on the monthly repayments.

I have 2356 -> 2458.09 (with 2% loan interest); I'm repaying 3.92 ducats/month - where is 3.92 coming from? Gendalf (talk) 19:48, 23 July 2015 (CEST)

Its the interest on the loan (2356*1.02-2356)/12=3.92 its from 1.02 being 2% interest calculated annually and paid monthly. Dauth (talk) 23:42, 24 July 2015 (CEST)


As of august 2016, bankrupcy event cancels all building queues for ships and buildings, however vassal queues are not reset (see Europa Universalis IV Let's Play Tunisian Thievery 55 on Youtube, where Arumba failed to abuse bankrupcy) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:00, 17 December 2016‎ (CET)
