I hate it when I make a vassal and after a while they become useless to me and I can't annex them and I have to get in a messy war even If I just want 1-2 provinces from that vassal it's so annoying so my suggestion there should be a button to take a certain amount of provinces from a vassal
◆Colony - ex. British Malaya, Viceroyalty of New Spain, Great Korean Empire
・The suzerain absorbs 50% of income of its colony.・The suzerain can recruit units in provinces of its colony.
・The suzerain can build something in provinces of its colony. ・The colony can't declare war.
This kind of vassal is created by annexation of tribal civilizations. The colony has some liberty desire when created.
the suzerain becomes to be able to annex its colony after 30 turns.
◆Subject - ex. vassals of Seljuk empire, Soviet Socialist Republic in USSR
・same as colony.
The suzerain can ask its subject to abandon its autonomy. If it accept, the suzerain occupy its provinces.
◆Puppet - ex. British raj, Holstein
・same as colony, but its suzerain absorbs 30% of income of its puppet.
If you win the war and create a vassal, the created vassal will become this kind of vassal.
The puppet may ask its suzerain to change itself to this kind of vassal when it has moderate liberty desire (20~30%).
Suzerain can deny its request but the war will be started.
◆Dominion - ex. Dominion of Canada, Australia(WW2)
・same as Vassal in AoC2 now.
(the suzerain can absorb only a few gold. The dominion can declare war.)
The dominion may ask its suzerain to release itself. Release or War.
Here are a few suggestions I have (react with these things if you support it)
(like)> Vassals should not be able to peace out with other vassals if both their lords are at war
(sad)> The Player should get more control over their vassals
(confused)>You should be able to ajust population and economy from the start (like with tech level) instead of having to make an event to ajust it
(haha)>There should be an easier way to import flags when making custom civs
(thanks)>When vassals are pushing in a war overseas (for example british raj helping the uk in germany) the area the vassal takes should be occupied by the lord
