How do I Gain Core Provinces?
I am playing as Austria and I took over Greece so I could build ships. But to build ships it needs to be a core province! I've Waited and waited and it still has not cored! Can anyone help me?

If you don't have an event or an existing alternate core on a province then, with out blind luck, the game doesn't last long enough to get you a core on a captured province. The game lasts only 16 years! That is far to short a time. Effectively you need to go after provinces with "an existing" Austrian "Claim" to them. These will have Austrian Flag in the section that shows core affilliations - a fair number of provinces have multiple nations with core status on them. Smone nations start with Key provinces on which they don't have a core but another nation does - Gibraltar is an example. Why the blind luck - check through both the Austrian and general game event's etc and you will see things than can give you a core but only if the prelimaries all happen and still require luck to get the event to impact. Some events have a mean (average) time before they occurr that is such that they are likely to not occurr in the period 1805 to 1820 and while some will / should others will not. The Adriatic Coast and Northern Italy are better bets - though that is based on history not checking the game provinces and events. That was the area that the Austrian's regarded as "theirs".
