    - Battles should now be a fair bit more bloody.
    - Failing an assault increases morale of defenders now.
    - Morale of defenders now recover every month during a siege.

    - Troops will no longer reinforce in empty provinces.
    - Reinforcing at lack of supply line to a friendly occupied city is now only 10% of normal speed.
    - Reinforcing adjacent to friendly occupied, but at hostile territory is halfed.

    - Its now slower to land into enemy territory, but also faster to land into controlled territory.
    - Loyal troops are now cheaper to maintain as their commander will pay some of their cost.
    - Increased basic force limits.

    - Fixed a problem with technology costs being almost 3 times as expensive as they should have been.
    - Trade will always give at least 0.01 civilisation.
    - No longer possible to trade with a nation you are at war with.

    - Dead people can no longer inherit loyal troops or wealth.

    - Added a country-broken mechanism with restoring order and multiple events switching government and killing of the ruler.
    - Getting your ruler captures now decreases stability, increases warexhaustion AND changes to a new ruler.
    - Reputation increase rate now scale with rulers charisma, and maximum badboy limit also gets a boost depending on your rulers charisma. Modders can tweak this for "ruler_diplomatic_slickness" in static_modifiers.txt

    - A country discovering a successfull assassination, supporting rebels or desecration of holy site now gets a casus belli against the offender.
    - Risk of detecting assassin is increased if country sending them has a bad reputation.
    - Once getting caught after a successful intrigue action a country may not perform another for 2 years.

    - Cancelling a tribute you are paying manually will now give the overlord a cb.
    - Added a check to stop certain provinces supplying enormous amounts of mercenaries.

    - Barbarians now only settle in occupied territory.
    - Barbarians will no longer be able to increase civilization value in some provinces when occupying.
    - Barbarian uprisings now empty most of the mercenary pool for that province.
    - The neighbor province fulfilling the requirements and with highest civ rating now dictates what culture/religion a colonized province gets.

    - You will now be able to hold on to provinces takes from a country in civil war.
    - A civil war ends when one faction no longer controlls any provinces (as opposed to old behavior when only ownership was checked)
    - If the civil war ends when you control some of the loosing sides provinces they will now be yours, but you will take a hefty reputation hit for taking advantage of the country (I recommend settling a peace deal with the loosing side before this happens and gain some provinces this way instead).
    - A couple of new checks stop provinces from defecting to rebel side when they are under a foreign powers control.

    - Newly formed countries now start with some gold and stability.

    Very nice. Although I do not read anything about attrition changes so I presume a victorious invader will still take a terrible attrition hit while the defeated defender is retreating from the province. And combined with the reduced reinforcement rate for invading armies, this should tip the balance even more in favor of the defender.

    I am glad to see that changes from EUIII IN Nomine will be in Rome. And the patch came out faster than expected.
    However I am a little bit sad that the request for more diplomatic options (e. g. warnings, guarantees) was unsuccessful.

    - Characters will no longer help out in civilwars if a country already have 120% of force limits.
    - Characters of different religions and cultures are now alot less likely to be elected to office.
    yayz!!!!

    Now I can no more have 1.5 million soldiers under command of my Numidian consul in a civil war when fighting against a egyptian consul.
    I still wonder how my roman citizens elected them...

    and it is boring to land troops out from nowhere as they seem to have been recruited at the bottom of a ocean.

    In general, old saves are not guaranteed to work with patches, but you can try.

    If you ask me, I'd say that you can continue your 1.1. game BUT I will take no responsibility if something is not working. Or anything working at all.
