    Default How to change a region's religious percentage using ESF Editor

    Hello modders! I will be showing you how to change a region's religious percentage using ESF Editor.
    I will be using:
    -A saved game as Prussia
    -ESF Editor 1.4.5 from the ESF Total Editor
    -The Rhineland
    -My knowlege of this monstrosity!
    I would like to convert the rhineland to 100% Protestant in my saved game

    First, I go into my Saved game and go into CAMPAIGN_ENV/CAMPAIGN_MODEL/WORLD/REGION_MANAGER/REGIONS_ARRAY/rhineland|REGIONS_ARRAY/rhineland|REGION/POPULATION/ REGION_FACTORS/RELIGION_BREAKDOWN
    and we can see the 9 religions in here

    I go into REL_CATHOLIC and in the second line is a number, 0.504.... meaning that the region is 50.4% Catholic. I will change that number to zero, making the region 0% Catholic. After that I go into REL_PROTESTANT and change line 2 to 1, making it 100% Protestant.
    These numbers ALWAYS have to equal 1, or else bad things might happen!
    Save the ESF and test it out.
    All better!

    Try using Esf Editor 1.5 as it seems more stable.

    I think its better to change the startpos.esf itself, reportedly hybrids is less stable, i use EsfEditor1.4.3
    on a hunch i also think its safer not to use 1 & 0, but rather 0.9 & 0.1

    Here is explanation if you want to change state religion,
    and a mod that you can modify so you build the right kind of churches
