For one specific reason. I am making less money when i capture more territory than i am at the start of the game.
This happens specifically when playing as holy roman empire on medivel europe map.
And no, its not because of happiness.
I make 81 gold at 100% levy at the start of the game, and then after taking denmark, norway, sweden, france and scotland, I was making 29 gold.

I think at that point my happiness had gone to 60% but i distributed money and it only went up to 39.

What the hell is going on there? Is it a bug or is it because... I cant think of any logical reason for it to happen.

hello,

please consider the various variables, which the calculation for your income is based on.

costs for administration or military upkeep may lower your income in the end, just as a low happiness will do.

in order to see an overview of yuor financial situation, please click on the crown button on the bottom.

best regards

Does taking over low populated areas actually reduce your income?

Thanks for reply but this really makes no sense to me, i didnt have that much army, my happiness was ok, i had many nice cities and for some reason i was making no money

I have just tested it again.
At the start of the game (80% happiness) as holy roman empire you recieve 81 gold at 100% levies.
After taking over Denmark and France, at 86% happiness and with a military upkeep costing only 18 gold, that figure is Reduced to 70 gold.

That just cannot be right.

Please note, the larger your nation (#population & #provinces), your administration cost will go up. A bigger nation costs more to manage!

Right, but surely the income from levies should cover the levies. Something is clearly not right if you get less money from taking over another nation, maybe its a glitch on this map, because it doesnt happen on the other map.

That is completely right. You simply should increase your cities, that's the solution.

Increasing population dont works. I usually evade to make fertility festivals because my income goes down if i do so...
So thats seems to be no way to evade decreasing income.

Let me have a look! I think I need to re-adjust the equation that calculates the administration cost....

Man, remove the cross from the governors option, it consumes about 25-30% of the income.
