    Crusader Kings - 1.05 Patch Released

    Download it from http://www.paradoxplaza.com/support/downloads-patches

    This patch should be applied to a fresh CL installation from your original game CD. You do not need to install any previous patches.

    CK 1.05 is not compatible with any save games made with CK 1.04a or earlier (some major exe and handling changes make this impossible). You will need to start a new game with this patch.

    ********* CRUSADER KINGS 1.05 CHANGE LOG *********
    **********************************************
    **********************************************

    Crusader Kings 1.05 represents a massive undertaking in overhauling many game mechanisms, introducing many new features, and completely reworking and rebalancing almost all aspects of the game. This offical 1.05 enhancement was more than 18 months in the making; and would have been impossible without the support of Paradox's development team; the tireless dedication of a small group of betas; and most importantly it would never have happened without the continued interest of our fans in the Public Beta forum who have devoted countless hours making suggestions, posting feedback, testing, and assisting us with events and text translations...and so much more.


    The following list of changes is only a general overview of the primary differences between 1.05 and 1.04. To view a complete and detailed list; please see the change logs that accompanied each of the 34 distinct public beta patches. (http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...d.php?t=171465)


    #################
    #### Gameplay ####
    #################

    CRUSADES
    - Created new system of cyclical Crusades with varying targets based on game situation. The game will now consist of a series of shorter crusades, with periods of peace in between. The end of a crusade will occur at some time after the crusade target (as identified by hovering your mouse over the crusade flag) has been captured; and will happen sooner if surrounding provinces have also been captured.
    - Introduced massive events to control Crusades and provide flavour while Crusades occur.
    - The AI has been made reactive to Crusades and powerful rulers are likely to embark on aggressive campaigns in support of them.

    REALM MANAGEMENT
    - The maximum demesne size is now based on the ruler's INTRIGUE rating and not the ruler's stewardship rating.
    - The Martial stat of the ruler and the marshal now determines the recruitment speed for the provincial regiments.
    - Difficulty no longer affects regiment size, only speed of recruitment.
    - Removed tax rate impact on regiment size.
    - The Byzantine demesne bonus has been reduced.
    - Rulers can now press the claims of co-belligerent vassals and/or courtiers if the ruler lacks his own claim.
    - Peace is now enforced for all vassals (and vassals of vassals) when a liege makes peace. This includes truce periods.
    - Higher titles (duke and king level) can now be created even if all provinces are held by your vassals and no demesne is present.
    - Granting a Duchy/Kingdom title will also grant appropriate vassals.
    - Destroyed titles may be recreated with only 1 province if a claim exists to the destroyed title.
    - Titles are no longer destroyed by taking all demesne if the ruler still has vassals.
    - New vassals are 100% loyal.
    - Vassals very distant from liege demesne may break away.
    - Vassals that become independent due to religious differences receive a claim on the liege.
    - Vassals now sorted in loyalty order for liege.
    - Vassals may now become rebellious if they are far away from their liege, or if they have a very high intrigue level, or if their liege has a very poor intrigue level, or if they are a different religion than their liege. This can lead to increased chances that they will attempt to assassinate their liege; or they may even attempt to initiate a civil war.
    - Fixed assignment of Bishoprics from the Papal Controller's court to exclude married courtiers or those with court rank.
    - Provinces that are a considerable distance from the demesne capital will tend to dissolve into anarchy and rebellion. When a human ruler is leading a regiment, any parts of his demesne that are far away from his current location (including provinces near the demesne capital!) may also be subject to revolt and thievery.
    - The Pope can no longer inherit titles.
    - The Pope receives base prestige equal to the Papal Controller per month. Some events now give the Pope and those around him extra piety.
    - Only rulers may be excommunicated by the Papal Controller.
    - Provinces converting to non-Christian lose all Christian buildings.
    - Moslem ruler succession can sometimes trigger interesting (and tumultuous) results.
    - Adjusted frequency of female birth and random spawning.
    - Added loyalty adjustment for liege laws.
    - Rulers are limited to one alliance, although it is possible to exploit this by responding affirmatively to two (or more) simultaneous offers.
    - Now possible to agree when a courtier thinks they would "be a better" court member which will automatically promote them into that position.
    - Bankruptcy now degrades fortifications instead of removing them.
    - Formation of a Crusader State from within your lands is a boon to a ruler rather than a penalty.
    - Implemented terrain restrictions on province buildings. No more advanced lumber industry in the desert.
    - Tweaked province buildings/improvements cost, time, and effects.
    - Rebalanced pillage gold and piety effects based on buildings and province effects.
    - You should no longer be pested by non-coreligionist courtiers seeking officer positions in your court.
    - The Pope and Patriarch are now only annoyed if you appoint heathens to court officer positions, but not if you simply have some unemployed ones in your court. However; the Pope will complain if you appoint Orthodox court officers during a crusade so players should generally avoid doing so except under extreme emergencies.


    COMBAT
    - Combat losses now displayed in results window.
    - Regimental commanders of different religions will not claim lands for themselves but for the ruler while at war vs. religious enemies.
    - Thieves, smugglers, and highway robbers are now more likely to spring up when the province regiment is away.
    - Mercenary system now changed so mercenaries are sometimes useful.
    - Tweaked many combat values to increase shock and reduce losses. Much more likely to see routs and less annhilation.
    - Naval transport costs vastly increased and slowed speed. Extremely expensive to sail directly to religious enemy.

    MONGOL HORDES
    - Completely redesigned the Mongol Hordes, their initial armies, their wants, desires, succession preferences.

    OTHER
    - The plague may now appear and almost any time and will spread not only through provinces, but also through courts.
    - God now looks unfavorably on heathens, heretics, etc who somehow get control of (or could inherit control of) the Papacy of Religious Orders.
    - Heretic provinces now red on religion map.
    - All trait effects have been rebalanced. The previous "lisp" and "stutter" traits have been combined into the "lisp" trait, and the "intestinal worm" and "leper" traits have been eliminated. Three new traits have been introduced: "rebelliousness", "realm duress" and "parental upbringing". Rebelliousness means that a vassal is considering declaring independemce, or that he might attempt to wreak havoc within his liege's realm. Realm duress is a trait that a liege will receive if one or more of his vassals is attempting to initiate a civil war. Until he can regain stability by putting down all signs of rebellion, he will be at far greater risk of further uprisings. Parental upbringing is a trait given to a child when a ruler has decided to take a more direct hand in his or her education. It willl usuaully only occur for the player's immediate family.
    - Full name and title is now the default for event effects.
    - Mortality rates have been increased for all characters except for rulers and primary heirs
    - Capitals now have some inertia.
    - The restriction that removed chaste and lustful traits from younger characters when loading a save game has been removed.
    - Random male courtiers will be generally a bit younger than before.

    - AI now much, much smarter in wars and with mobilization of troops.

    - AI more likely to ally when marriage/family ties are involved.
    - AI no longer automatically involves itself in inter-vassal wars.
    - AI Kings more likely to Crusade.
    - AI lieges will demand support of vassals on Crusade.
    - AI Catholic rulers are less likely to accept muslim neighbours

    ################
    ##### EVENTS #####
    ################

    - Added events for varying Heresies.
    - Added in-depth system of child educational events
    - Added a series of events making it more difficult to control non-religion provinces.
    - Added a series of events to better model Mongol Horde succession.
    - Added several series of events based on the court members.
    - Added a series of events based on realm laws.
    - Tweaked technology spread and discovery events for realm tier and current status (war, crusading, etc).
    - Added a series of events that destabilize the Byzantine Empire.
    - Added a series of intrigue events for vassals to get uppity.
    - Crusader States will attempt to form themselves when Catholics make gains in the Holy Land.
    - The Pope will ask nicely for Rome back, should you have it and should he be homeless. Beware saying 'No'.
    - Added a siege event that could speed a siege... or not.
    - Cultural and Religious Conversion events re-coded. Repeatedly. And then a few more times. And then once more.
    - Added a series of events for bastard children to either turn into William the Bastard... or die horribly.
    - Added a series of events for bastards to disrupt courts if they are so inclined.
    - Added a series of regency events for child rulers. Beware your vassals.
    - Made some logical adjustments to bankruptcy events defining what you can and cannot steal.
    - The Pope and Patriarch get very unhappy when your court is run by heathens. Especially while a Crusade is in effect.
    - Chancellors and Stewards impact length of revolts and province wealth.
    - New ultracomplex event for distant vassals to break free from their lieges.
    - New even more ultracomplex events added to make it rather difficult to maintain law, order, and loyalty in demesne provinces that are distant from the demesne capital (i.e. are not in the same area or an adjacent area). The player will also be at some risk of two of these events whenever the demesne's ruler is far away at war (an approximation of Prince John's treachery when Richard was off on crusade). The AI is not subject to this latter case since it could be too hard for it to manage.
    - Added several battle and siege oriented events.
    - Added a new event that no one expects, and that will do something with fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency and a fanatical devotion to the...er....

    Re localisation (other language versions)

    I spoke with Johan about this today and most other language versions are expected to be ready sometime next week. I'll keep you all posted as to when (and where) they will be available.

    Sorry for the delay.
    If I use this colour text or this one then I'm "speaking" as a moderator. Ignore at your peril.

    Please take a moment to register your copy of EU3. "The [EU3] registration key is not a copy protection measure, tragically people will always crack your copy protection. Rather it is a paying customer support measure. Rather than have the support forum swamped by people who pirate our games, we can make sure that our paying customers get their support quicker. Similarly with bug reports, we want to improve the things our paying customers want not the pirates. Finally we put that little icon below your avatar so that we see your feedback (both good and bad) we know that these are the things that our paying customers like (or dislike) and can use this information for future projects." - King
