Cultural Bonuses

Give every cultures various bonuses[] from extra fort level to better relations. These are applied to either the characters, buildings or capitals.

Some bonuses are not totally lore friendly yet as some are based on EUIV ideas. More accurate bonuses are slowly added and if you are knowledgable about some peoples don't hesitate to comment.

Work fine without DLC, but some bonuses do nothing without them. For example, extra retinues won't do anything unless you have legacy of rome. There is also several trade related bonuses which won't do anything if you are not a republic (Silk Road Enhanced can help but require Horselord).

Should be save compatible and work fine with every mods that doesn't add modifiers to specific cultures or touch the static modifiers. If you play with a mod that add new cultures, the new ones won't have bonuses unless they are renamed default cultures. If there is a popular incompatible mod and i get a lot of request i may make a patch for it.

Installation of patched versions
Inside the main zip file there are several folders and ".mod" files (like "CK2PlusCulture" folder & "CK2PlusCulture.mod") , simply drag those with the same names as the mod you want in /Mod (where your mods are downloaded) and activate only the version of said mod, don't activate both the patched version and Cultural Bonus in the launcher.

Patched Mod:
HIP EMF (without SWMH)
HIP SWMH (if using both EMF and SWMH, only use this version)
Ibn Battuta's Legacy

CKII mods are downloaded when CKII launcher is started, not when subscribing. Sometime it bugs and need to be launcher twices. Paradox also forbid direct download links outside of their forums, here is the thread of my mod with a direct download link inside:

If this wasn't the problem at all and it's somehow steam still not downloading the mod, do come back and tell me.

Well, cultures isn't that important in Paradox's games, often it is nothing more than a small revolt risk. Most likely why they don't pay attention to them.

Side note, ALL of the vanilla cultures have bonuses... Even horse! :D

also, glad to see you paid atention to giving the romans a bonus, it's sad that many moders, and paradox themselves, often forget they even are in the game, it's always sweek to see them getting some love

either that or put a warning in big, bold letters at the top of the desc so that dumbasses like me don't make the same mistake lol

No worries, I should probably take a screenshot of the process and upload it, for convenience sake.

Let's check these 2 details first:
First, I haven't updated it since April, any cultures Ck2+ could have added after that point won't work. Not sure if they have added any as I'm not playing CK2 right now and as such I'm not keeping track the mod scene, but CK2+ easily have over a hundreds of new cultures that do work. The more recents being their Italian update.
Second, did you simply subscribe to the mod? Or did you pull out the CK2PlusCulture folder and "CK2PlusCulture.mod" from the rar and checked that mod in the launcher instead of the "vanilla" version?

uhm, you sure it works with ck2+, cause i have no effects on the cultures added by it, the vanilla ones work fine, but the new ones have no bonus
