This mod is a subtle re-balancing of Europa Universalis IV-Rule Britannia (version 184.108.40.206 England). It revamps the pacing of technology, and adjusts costs, budgets and trade with an eye on realism, but does not sacrifice the finely tuned vanilla game-play in the process. *What this mod does do; is make the player capable of grand strategising, and less prone to disaster in the face of random chance. Now you can train up your armies and generals within a period of years (rather than decades), hire advisers that don't bankrupt your empire, have the AI treat you as they would any other nation, and force you to choose between provincial and technological development. A word of warning; Building an Empire from humble beginnings is faster and more dynamic, but disaster still looms if one expands too quickly and neglects the importance of trade, technology, alliances and training one's (now slightly more costly) army.
PLEASE RATE! For exclusive use with Europa Universalis IV - Rule Britannia (220.127.116.11 England) Should work for both single and multiplayer. *Will disable Ironman achievement.
