A reason for war and how AI behave because of it (Casus Belli)

Currently viewing this thread:

there should be more to it then simply declaring war, there should be a Casus Belli- a reason for war, and this reason should determine the behavior of the campaign AI. also, the personality traits should play a role on what Casus Belli they vote for. here are examples I thought of for Casus Belli:

- Liberation: a faction will declare war to gain settlements that have the same culture as theirs (as a side note this can be the type of war a rebellion declares).
Behavior: to focus on sieging those settlements and avoid raiding. will not want peace until at least one settlement is obtained or significant losses.
Other reasons for clan leader voting for: positive Honor trait, positive Generosity trait.
Other reasons for clan leader voting against: other faction does not have settlement of your culture, negative Honor trait, negative Generosity trait.

- Land and Fiefs: a faction will want to declare war if a vassal has no fief.
Behavior: mostly sieging with some raiding. will not want peace until at least one settlement is obtained or significant losses.
Other reasons for clan leader voting for: personally does not own fief, positive Honor trait, Positive Valor trait. positive Mercy trait
Other reasons for clan leader voting against: negative Honor trait, negative Valor trait. negative Mercy trait.

- For Honor: a faction will declare war on a comparably strong faction if they haven't declared war for 100 in game days.
Behavior: a mix of raiding and sieging. will not want peace until significant losses on one or the others side or dealt.
Other reasons for clan leader voting for: positive Honor trait, Positive Valor trait.
Other reasons for clan leader voting against: negative Honor trait, negative Valor trait.

- Jealousy: a faction will declare war on a faction that is significantly stronger them.
Behavior: a mix of raiding and sieging. will not want peace until significant losses on one or the others side or dealt.
Other reasons for clan leader voting for: hates other faction's ruler, negative Honor trait, negative Generosity trait, Positive Valor trait.

- Plunder: a faction will declare war in order to gain money
Behavior: mostly raiding with little in the way of sieges. willing to make peace if other faction gives high tribute or deals significant loss.
