Creating Prussia Edit

Revolts Edit

"Map showing provinces that can form Prussia"

Provinces that can form Prussia

Prussia can be created by revolt or releasing a vassal at any point in the game. It will have its normal latin techgroup. Its culture and religion are not stated in revolt.txt, but will be German and probably Catholic or Protestant.

Prussia must include the province of Prussia, which is the default capital. It may also contain Danzig, although that province cannot form Prussia on its own. There are a further three provinces that are listed as extra provinces in revolt.txt, but which will never be part of the new Prussia, as they are not adjacent to a province that can be part of the new Prussia. They will, however, be Prussian core provinces. They are:

  • Brandenburg
  • Küstrin
  • Silesia

Brandenburg Edit

Prussia can also be "created" by Brandenburg. If Prussia chooses the first of two options in the event Prussian incorporation into Brandenburg and is inherited by Brandenburg, then Brandenburg has the option to become Prussia. This will happen if Brandenburg choose the first of two options in the event The Kingdom of Prussia in January 1701. If you wish to play as Prussia in one of the first three scenarios, you will likely have a more powerful Prussia if you start as Brandenburg. If you become Prussia in this way, you will gain cores on most of Germany.

AI Priorities Edit

In the 1795 scenario, Prussia starts with the anti-French AI file. Otherwise, it uses the Prussia AI file. The descriptions below apply only to the Prussia AI file.

Colonization Edit

If Prussia colonizes, it will focus on the continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa. It will prioritize the region of West Africa, and the areas of Canton and the Balkans. However, since its expansion value is 0, it will almost never attempt to explore or colonize.

If it does ever send out a colonist, Prussia will establish a trading post 20% of the time, has a 10 bonus to chances of establishing a new colony next to an existing one (default is 50), and a -1 to establishing a colony next to another country (default is -50)

Trading Edit

Prussia's trade settings are identical to the default AI.

War Edit

Prussia will focus its wars against Poland and Pommern. It has a warmonger value of 80 (compared to the default of 10). It is willing to fight further from home than the default (2.0 compared to 1.0), is less likely to focus on defending/liberating its own provinces than the default (1.0 compared to 2.0), and is generally more aggressive (3.0 vs 1.0). All other settings are identical to the default.
