For complete list of changes, check this post for previous version. For reasoning behind them, check all the previous posts about the mod - however you're the final judge and you can selectively pick and choose whichever chances from the mod you like.

Balance tweaksBuilding monarch point cost reduced from 10 to 5. 10 was sensible if all these conditions were met:
- Your empire was at most medium sized (like Scandinavia)
- You had no extra sources of income (like with trade ideas)
- You had no significant discounts on build cost (like with economic ideas)
Partial westernization (going up to Muslim tech) now requires no rebel-occupied provinces. Apparently Ming somehow manages to get required stability +2 even while half of it is occupied by peasants.
Return Subject Core CB
More reformable countries
- you must have the right primary culture
- you must own and have cores on every single province of that culture
- admin tech at least 10
- not subject, not tribal, not at war, at least 3 provinces
- country you want to switch to isn't already formable in some other way (then use whichever way is already provided by the game)
- your current country isn't on blacklist (Holy Roman Empire, Papal State, Hindustan, Mughals, Spain, France, Germany, Byzantium, Bukhara, Italy, Russia, Scandinavia, Persia, Great Britain, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Egypt, Vijayanagar) - it's here to prevent cycles of tag switching and other weirdness
- you can't form Muscovy, which is technically Russian's primary culture - you should try to form Russia instead
- you can't form Shun or Zhou - technically primary cultures of Han and Cantonese cultures - that would just feel really weird
Everything is optional
Compatibility with other modsThe mod is currently only guaranteed compatible with UI-only mods.
I've been asked multiple times about compatibility with CK2 imports, EVE, Extended Timeline, and other mods. Right now it requires manual merging, which shouldn't be too much work, and people have successfully done so.
I might someday write a script to merge these automatically and provide packages with both, but that's just a vague plan for now.
