Thank you, Mercado.
Thank you, Mercado.
I'll agree it needs some polishing, but knowing paradox I would expect it in a patch rather than some kind of expansion fix.
If modders have already fixed it then paradox doesn't have much work to do.
I sure hope they fix the ruler designer to be also a modifier of rulers too. It's pretty useless to me as it is now.
At first I was disappointed by the apparent limitations too. But I spent more time experimenting with it, and it's pretty easy to overcome the age costs by combining traits--If you create a complicated enough character, you can be 16 and have double-digit strengths. I'm glad they did it this way--otherwise it would just be abused like some kind of cheat.
Why even bother buying it when you can edit anyone you want in the vannila game with a little know how? Yes, it is complicated at first, but a few edits down the line and its easy...
First we take Berlin, then we take the World.

I love the DLC my self. (I love uniting Italy with the Massimo dynasty!) I just wish I could alter characters I wasn't playing in a game.
It's a great RP immersion tool. If I do plan on uniting Italy, I might start off in Capua with a Massimo bastard heir who lead a popular over throw of the Norman Lord f the city (as happened historically a little before the game starts)
I think it's a neat DLC, but I agree it should have a bit more use beyond creation... you can create your first character, and that's about it. Maybe if we could use it to tweak maybe our first born, or one person... I dunno. Or maybe tweak multiple characters at a time, so you can custom build your surroundings.
It was completely what I expected, they said what it was going to do. They never said you could just edit things from the character. So I'm not not disappointed, and in Multiplayer is quiet fun to have.
Well I removed all the line that effected the cost of the "Ruler Design" DLC from the define file.
Can't say I'm having problems with it. It's not perfect and the age penalty is a little harsh sometimes, but it does what I expected it too. Paradox just needs to tweak it a little and add a few extra 'looks' and it'll be fine.

I'm not really a fan of a large chunk of single-player games starting from fictitious characters, while on the other hand I wouldn't mind the ability to 'correct' or adjust some representations I don't agree with, e.g. which family should be regarded as the count-equivalent or duke-equivalent or king in some complicated land where the rule was contested, or if I believe the character should have different stats. Then I can 'fix it' for my own game and there's no need to mod it or anything like that. Besides, it's optional, so...
And I've bought the DLC but never used it.
