German regional tags[edit]

hello, you recently added information about the formation of Prussia, so I also noticed that in the decision on the formation of Swabia there is no requirement for a German regional tags, but I will not be able to verify this in the near future, so I would like to ask you to do this. Dmitriytosunov (talk) 04:30, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

checked the game files for the formation decisions for all german regional tags when I made the edit about Prussia. Prussia is the only one that can be formed by other german regional tags. The formation decision on the Swabia page is missing a lot of information, but this was already fixed by Lillebror in the Formation decisions page. I'll transclude the decision on the swabia page from there. --Grotaclas (talk) 13:43, 21 July 2020 (UTC)


New World Capital Move[edit]

Per your request, a screenshot for 1.30.4 of the requirement to have third of total provinces in a new world (cross continent) capital move at imgur path /a/CMMebfy (I might be missing something, and maybe just a requirement clarification is needed). I also not sure why I can't add this to the capital discussion page (probably the link)

This is very interesting. I have never seen this message(although I now found it in the game files). I tried to reproduce your situation (Arabia, Golden Era, Age of Revolutions, owning and moving to Boriken), but I only ever get the message "We cannot move our capital to a colonial region, not while we still have a big heartland around it. Only when our capital is the only province in a state on that continent, will it be possible.". But this requirement is already explained in the wiki. Can you check if you get that message when you deactivate all mods? Maybe you have an achievement compatible mod that changes the messages. If you still get the message without mods, can you please upload your save game somewhere so that I can have a look at it? Maybe I can find out how to get that message and if it is really possible to move the capital to a colonial region if 1/3 of the provinces are on that continent. And please sign your messages on talk pages with "~~~~" --Grotaclas (talk) 12:21, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, can't send a save. Already moved on in the game, and I'm playing Ironman. (going for 1-tag, so moving to new world is critical). I didn't move directly to Boriken. I trampolined through either maldives or sokotra (sp?). Don't remember. After a few years with the capital on that island and no states other than capital, the move capital button was available so I happily clicked. Not sure what was the difference from the initial time with the message. Sorry again. Also, I'm not using any mods, but only have part of the DLCs. I apologize for the etiquette issues, this change is my first wiki change attempt --Madda (talk)
Having the capital on a single-province-island on the home continent was the missing bit. I got the message in my test game after moving the capital to Socotra. I did a few more tests and I only got the message when the current capital didn't have a land border with another province and I had at least one other state on the same continent as the current capital and I was trying to move to a colonial region. But I didn't always get the message so there are probably other criteria. But despite the message I was not able to move the capital to a province in the Caribbean even after getting more than 1/3 of my provinces in North America. After getting more provinces in North America, the message switched back to "We cannot move our capital to a colonial region, not while we still have a big heartland around it. Only when our capital is the only province in a state on that continent, will it be possible.". And when my capital was the last stated province on my home continent and it didn't border any other provinces, I was able to move the capital to a colonial region even if the new continent had less than 1/3 of the provinces. And I was also able to move the capital to a province that is not in a colonial region, while the new continent had only one province and the old capital was surrounded by many states and provinces. So I think that this is a case of wrong tooltip and this criteria is not in the game in the current version(maybe it existed in some old version). --Grotaclas (talk) 18:31, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
