Achievements

From Victoria 3 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Victoria III has 45 different achievements with varying difficulty levels, ranging from very easy to very hard. They have no in-game effects and are used mainly to highlight different gaming experiences by providing players goals to strive for.

Once the requirements for an achievement have been completed, a notification pops up to notify the player -- note that this happens only once per achievement (unless the achievements are removed from the player's profile using 3rd party tools). Depending on the gaming platform, the achievement can then be used as a vanity item to be displayed on the player's profile.

Achievements can only be gained in single-player games using game rules that don't block achievements (specifically, not Achievements Blocked). They can be earned while playing older versions of the game as long as they were present in that version. Unlike other Paradox titles, Ironman mode is not required to gain achievements; similarly it is also possible to gain achievements even with mods that affect checksums[1].

Note: For convenience purposes, this article references the Steam achievements mechanics, but they may be available on other platforms as well. On Steam, it is possible to see the achievements sorted by the percentage of users that managed to complete them by going to the game's global achievements page (for more precise numbers one can use the Steam web API).

List of achievements[edit | edit source]

  • The descriptions on this page are taken from the in-game achievement list; the descriptions on Steam (or other platforms) may be different.
  • The Notes column includes clarifying information regarding the achievement and short, helpful tips. It should not be longer than 2-3 lines (in total).
  • The Victoria 3 column indicates whether an achievement requires a certain DLC to complete it.
  • The Ver column indicates the initial version the achievement has appeared in and thus the earliest version that it can be completed on.
  • The DI column indicates the achievement's difficulty level. The initial listing uses the game's difficulty categorization, however, it can be changed according to player consensus.
The difficulty levels are: E = Easy, M = Medium, H = Hard, VH = Very Hard, UC = Uncategorized.

  • Goods tanks.png Tanks require the Mobile Armor military technology, which is one of the final technologies you can unlock in the "military" tab, so be prepared for a long campaign.
  • Being independent is not a requirement for this achievement, so remaining a Flag of Russia Russian puppet can be advantageous, as it grants you protection.

Reading Campaign icon
Reading Campaign
Starting as a nation with less than 20% literacy, get to 100% literacy
Yes Literacy.png Literacy rate is less than 20% Yes Literacy.png Literacy rate is equal to 100%
  • Maximum education institution (+50% education access), the social mobility decree (+25%), and 13 standard of living (+26%, 2% per 1 wealth) is enough to hit 100% education access. Due to the need to use the social mobility decree, this should only be attempted in small or single state countries where the decree can be used in every state through the entire game. Necessary technologies are Empiricism and Dialectics for +1 level of education institution each, and Human Rights to pass the Compulsory Primary School law for the final 2 levels.
  • The Trade Unions are the only interest group that endorses Compulsory Primary School (unless another group's leader gains the Reformer trait), while the Industrialists oppose it, so plan on pushing for Census or Universal Suffrage to give laborers the political strength to boost the Trade Union's clout, and reduce the Industrialist's clout.
  • Near impossible through normal, unplanned play, due to pop splitting sometimes creating new pops with low, even base literacy. All forms of pop splitting due to conversion, assimilation, migration, and employment should be avoided. Thus a strategy of closed borders (preventing migration) and cultural-religious homogeneity (to avoid pop splitting due to conversion and assimilation) should be employed. Serbia is a good starting country for this, as it is homogeneous, with closed borders, and no slave trade, thus no diversity (and split pops) will ever be introduced. Due to new building employment (including production method changes) splitting pops, once your initial economy has been built and you are pushing for 100% literacy, new buildings, and production methods that change pop composition, should be avoided, only expanding existing ones to meet new demand. Use Interventionism subsidies to keep buildings from losing employment of a pop completely, in event of an economic meltdown, as a completely new pop may be far behind in literacy.
  • Side Note! : Tested in 1.0.6, Seems to only work with homogeneous countries entirely. Even with all modifications on max, when you get a yankee in serbia its time to restart.
  • If you have a few stubborn pops that won't learn to read, try inciting a large rebellion. They might just be on the other side.

Bourbon for Everyone! icon
Bourbon for Everyone!
Starting as Spain, have an average standard of living of at least 20 while remaining a monarchy
Yes Playing as Flag of Spain Spain
  • Raising average standard of living requires increasing pop wages and reducing consumption goods costs. Lower strata pops have lower wages, particularly Pop peasants.png peasants, so it's very important to fully employ pops in buildings and not leave any subsistence farms.
  • Conquering or colonizing more states increases the number of pops whose standard of living must be raised, so expanding your market through subjects or diplomacy is preferable. Releasing states with low standard of living as subjects can be an effective way to boost the average standard of living.
  • Remember that government and military employees are pops, too; you can set their pay to the max to increase their wages and thus standard of living.

Grander Colombia icon
Grander Colombia
Form Gran Colombia and own all land in the Gran Colombia, Andes, and La Plata strategic regions
  • Yes Playing as Flag of Gran Colombia Gran Colombia
  • Yes Owns all states in the Gran Colombia Strategic Region
  • Yes Owns all states in the Andes Strategic Region
  • Yes Owns all states in the La Plata Strategic Region
  • Flag of Colombia New Granada is a good candidate to form Flag of Gran Colombia Gran Colombia, as they can quickly annex or subjugate their neighbors, Flag of Venezuela Venezuela and Flag of Ecuador Ecuador. Additionally, once Flag of Central America Central America breaks up, its successors are easily annexed or subjugated. New Granada can also eventually sell the Panama Canal for £30k, giving a short-term boost to the economy.
  • Flag of Mexico Mexico is an good long-term trade partner and war ally for when the player starts expanding south. Similarly, the player should befriend Flag of Great Britain Great Britain, Flag of France France, and Flag of America the United States from the start, as they are otherwise likely to intervene in diplo plays during the early stages of expansion before the player has a large enough army to hold them off.
  • When expanding southward, Flag of Brazil Brazil is a major consideration and allying them will ease the process. Colonizing in the La Plata region can make conquest of Flag of Argentina Argentina and Flag of Chile Chile easier, and allow for leaving the stronger Flag of Peru Peru and Flag of Bolivia Bolivia who typically unite as Peru Bolivia for after.
  • Finally, the player needs to conquer Guayana, held by three great powers. Flag of Great Britain British Guayana is the best to start with, as it has a land border with the state of Bolivar in Venezuela. Make sure to claim and naval invade the South Atlantic Islands (Falklands) also as those are part of the La Plata region. After that, Flag of Netherlands Dutch Guayana as it neighbors British Guayana, and finally Flag of France French Guayana. For all three Guayanas, a naval invasion is useful to bypass the enemy forces on the land border and open a second, less guarded front. With the last Guayana, it can be worth it to accept an enemy war goal, in order to get the final piece of Guayana for the achievement; however be careful not to cede any territory from the required strategic regions, even just a treaty port.

Starting as Austria, own Silesia and Prussia must be Minor Power or lower rank
Yes Playing as Flag of Austria Austria
  • Yes Playing as Flag of Austria Austria
  • Yes Owns the entire state of Silesia
  • Yes Flag of Prussia Prussia does not exist OR has country rank lower than Major Power
  • Becoming Austria-Hungary does not block this achievement.
  • The easiest way to weaken Flag of Prussia Prussia is by changing Flag of Bavaria Bavaria and Flag of Hesse-Kassel Hesse-Kassel into your Customs Union, effectively cutting off the Prussian economy in the Rhineland. Afterwards, weaken Prussian power by humiliating them, changing more nations from their Customs Union into yours, taking Silesia and releasing nations from their territory like Flag of Westphalia Westphalia and Flag of Danzig Danzig. Prussian AI will most likely try to conquer German minors by force, so remember to always take their side.

  • Entering a large market, such as Flag of France France or Flag of Prussia Prussia's, will allow you to specialise exclusively in the required industries without worrying much about pop needs or input resources. However to enter another market you will need to become independent of the Flag of Netherlands Netherlands or hope they join a large market. Acquiring another state beside Wallonia speeds things up considerably. You will have a decisive surplus of Hud authority.png authority, so you can freely use decrees: they help a lot.
  • Having a high migration attraction is essential, so multiculturalism helps a lot.

Yes Playing as Flag of Punjab Sikh Empire
  • It is not possible to make Flag of Great Britain Great Britain a subject while they are a great power, thus you will need to weaken them in one or more wars first.
  • In order to survive the early game, becoming a subject of a great power, such as Flag of France France, can be very helpful, both for economic expansion and military support. However, keep in mind that autonomous subjects are not automatically supported by their overlord when initiating a diplo play and the overlord may need to be swayed.
  • Expanding westward into Flag of Persia Persia and other Central Asian countries and eastward into South East Asia are good ways to build strength before taking on Great Britain and the Flag of East India Company East India Company (EIC). However, with France or another great power's support, it should be possible to take states from the EIC or Great Britain earlier.
