All right, that makes sense. Another thing : I don't know wether this is related to your tweaks, but I've just faced the biggest naval attack I have ever experienced in this game. By the late Middle ages, the Spanish, who had been acting suspiciously for centuries, launched a surprising, two-pronged naval attack towards my island. What amazed me is that, instead of the usual 3-4 triremes and 3-5 galleys mix CPs generally bring by that time, they had a combined total of 14 triremes and 11 galleys. Never had I seen a bigger naval deployment, at least by that time. Too bad for them I had just upgraded my 12 galleasses to Frigates. Yes, I had a tech lead.
