Drill_and_Professionalism

Description
This mod does 4 things:

1) Makes HIGH professionalism really very good, but expensive in terms of upkeep (+50% at max)
2) Makes LOW professionalism better in the early game by boosting mercs and cavalry
3) Makes DRILL overall more powerful, particularly in the late game
4) Makes supply depots more useful
5) Finally the milestones has been rearranged slightly to make sense with bonuses

(see screenshots for bonuses)

Overall the goal has been to reward NOT constantly fighting, but setting up your army for shorter sharper wars and to use professionalism as yet another tangent expressing "modernization" for those that can afford the extra upkeep. As a sidenote, professionalism now offers a way to keep up army tradition without constantly fighting (+0.50) and +1 Leader at "Professional Army (60)" ...However professionalism will also slowly decline if too long time pass without drilling.

note: To keep it balanced, Ottoman Janissary drill bonus has been nerfed from 100% to 75% bonus.For consideration / NOT in this mod yet: Im thinking to add drill bonus to quality ideas and to institution bonus when the Enlightenment hits, would love some feedback on this ?Please discuss here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/mod-drill-prefessionalism.1124809/If you like this MOD you might also enjoy:BUILDINGS REDONE https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1546447667HARDER SNOWBALLING https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1549690024MERCENARIES REDONE https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1552071668NAVAL & MARITIME IDEAS REDONE https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1552329306

@MyNameIsTyrone - it utalizes mechanics which are locked behind the DLC as far as I know

Just I hope the system that army can get drill point when they fight by system modify. I know it's hard.

@sym2026, Drill is basically a time & money sink to reward not constantly fighting. Constant fighting already grants some of the type of bonuses you are asking via the Land Tradition -mechanic.

(I can't english well sorry ) I think army could get experience when fight each other, and The fighting is bigger, army can get more experience. but If army are killed, they lose experience. So, Only Artillery could get experience more easier than other army when they fight. I want a mod like that. Can you make it? plz....

Yea
Now it works with all the other mods that I have
And the bonuses are really good
Makes it worth the time to drill your troops , before it didn't make such a huge difference
And it should be a huge difference because nations trained their troops and untrained troops means a higher defeat percentage
