I need help here, all of a sudden the colonies in f8 disapeared and I lost soi everywhere, now everywhere gives me -10 prestige per turn, all of this started when the british invaded Windhoek that was strangely considered "non-national" territory instead of colony, and then it became british "non-national" territory giving them 101% of colonial penetration out of nowhere, and it didn't change after I retook it from the british it still displayed as britisn "non-national" territory with 101% colonial penetration, this pattern seems to repeat in other places as well
Even weirder is that Qingdao (Shandong, see the screenshot above) is now "National territory" instead of "non-national" as it should be...
Please someone help me as this bug may cause me to give up playing as I'm already very upset with these many bugs
about the F8 problem I had sort of the same trying to set up a SOI for Egypt and changing the persian one by script (those are considered independant nations, which they were "on the paper" - with some interruption for Egypt a short time, but in reality they had more the status of a Protectorate
in the field, withy control of finances by foreign powers
... (sounds familiar - as well as unpleasant - to a greek fellow around those days ?
- french-british ministers , "caisse of debt" in Egypt, British-Russian takeover of persia - control of customs, finances, diplomacy, occupation and so, on ... so imho should be trated rather in the Morocco-Tunisia way !
at first I set a SOI for egypt and the same F8 mess happened to me
(never could set a SOI for egypt at start), then I changed the SOI and it worked BUT still Egypt (ande persia still appeared as indepenfdant states without their values being present as positive SOI in F8 for britain (nor, for persia, Russia)
there is probably an overflow or something of the sort - perhaps an AGEOD coder could have a look at this bug
hope it helped a bit, alas, coding is beyond my capabilities ...
for Windhoek at 101%, it happened to me, can come from an already high colonial investment, then an event comes and increase penetration - at 101% a colony becomes non national territory. could invasion of a colonial area, which became partly non national territory, provoke a chain bug ? ....
