Between the last chapter and this one there were 20 years of relative quiet and stability. This chapter picks up in 1490(turn 340).
I'm in a conundrum: Do I side with Castile and eat tiny!France? Or do I side with my vassal and declare on Castile. Well I put it off for a few months until I kicked Castile from the alliance. So that is just what I did.
Also Castile had some issues with Tunis and a separate minor. I reached technology 0.6 in June 1492
After a year and a half of flinging men into Castilian occupied lands and attempting to unsiege France, Aragon declares on ME. So now I'm at war with Castile, AND Aragon. I had sieged most of Castile down so fighting Aragon wasn't too terrible.
6 years into the Second Franco-Castillian War.
Individually, both I and France are better off than Castile. That tiny minor form earlier? Yea, that was a Native American tribe who sieged down most of the lower Iberian peninsula. I of course, grabbed Gibraltar.
The Aragonese-Anglo War is much more successful with a full occupation in 5 and a half years.
Not long after, France and I peaced Castile out taking Andorra and giving France her former territory back. As for Aragon. All of her Mediterranean holdings and most of her Iberian territory were taken by France and I, leaving Aragon as a 3 province minor. I suspect in 12 years or so, that France and Castile will be at it again.
So here we are in 1462. Castile decides to call me into a war against Portugal.
It goes well. Then Grenada of all people declare on me. So after finishing up with Portugal we smash the shit out of Grenada, and I take the province across the Strait of Gibraltar.
Between 1469 and 1470 I take out the rest of the Irish Minors.
Because I like France, and Burgundy is a wanker. I pay Burgundy to declare on France and we begin French expansion into Europe.
The 41 points are dolled out below.
Starting in 1440, Richard begins building markets, farms and a library to increase income. In 1444 we began our Irish Unification Wars, with our opening move against Osraige in 1444.
In 1448 I allied Castile, a major power on the Iberian Peninsula. I was lucky that Morocco declared before. I did NOT want to deal with a war against Morocco. In 1451, Castile and I joint declared against France. After 3 years of conflict, we peaced out in 1454
Castile gained 8 Provinces, I gained Paris and I vassalized France. In 1455 I annexed Thomond, and in 1458 I annexed Desmond and Munster in two separate war declarations. I retook Belfast and conquered Ulster in 1459.

Improved version of the map editor, which differs from the usual one in that this version does not need to constantly restart the editor and manually rename the province files. This innovation will significantly reduce the time spent on creating a map and save your nerves.
Addon 2.0 is our new global modification, designed to revise the idea of the original, and significantly expand its potential, due to the excellent implementation.
