This is my first time suggesting this, and I'm not sure this is possible. Is this idea possible to make a mod with?
Terminology:
B = Lowest-level Bonus
V = B's value
M, N = Caps. V must be in between M and N, inclusive.
X and Y = Amount increased or decreased (X increases, Y decreases)
Let's say a territory in B is attacked. V is decreased by Y up to a minimum of M. For every turn that no territory in B is attacked, V is increased by X up to a maximum of N.
My idea here is to add some sort of devastation and/or development to the bonuses. You won't really gain much from something you just recently conquered.

Don't think mods in the current framework can change bonus values during a game. I do like the concept thru.

Rather than change the bonus values (which is impossible), the mod could set all bonuses to 0 before the game, and give appropriate gold per turn for whoever own a bonus.

Would probably need a GUI as well, and sound like way too much work ðŸ˜…

I'm on it actually, I'm giving additional gold depending on the bonus level (bonus level increases the longer you hold it)

I'm working with the following formula:
`min(MM, floor(BL / BIAT) * BM) * BV `

where
MM = Maximum Multiplier (set in the mod configuration, default = 2.0)
BL = Bonus Level (increased when the player holds a bonus for a turn)
BIAT = Bonus Increases After number of Turns (set in the mod configuration, default = 1)
BM = Bonus Multiplier (set in the mod configuration, default = 0.1)
BV = Bonus Value

You're indeed not able to adjust bonus values during the game. I keep track of how long the bonus has been holded and reset this value when the bonus isn't complete anymore. I also keep track of who owns the bonus since a bonus can change from owner in 1 turn (1 territory bonuses in particular).

I'm currently not developing this mod cos I want to finish some other mods first before releasing this one, and it got some issues.
issues:

• atm it is actually possible to lose gold with negative bonuses
• there is an option for exponential growth instead of the formula above, but this needs a lot of work

there are also some features I want to add. Currently nothing happens when an attack on a completed bonus fails or a territory is lost but taken again in the same turn.

@player25253 if you like I can change it that you get less income (below the bonus value) if you just conquered the bonus

any suggestions? Feedback is always welcome

What is "lowest-level bonus"?

I assume it is the lowest level a bonus can become. in @player25253 description of the mod a bonus should lose levels when there are attacks on territories in the bonus, so B should make sure the level doesn't go below that value
