CK2 - Dev Diary #122 - A Great Patch

Greetings!

We’re happy to let you know that the patch we’ve been working on since the release of the Great Works update will be available on Thursday next week, May 16. We thank you for your patience, and without further ado, we would like to present the patch notes for more details.

In response to some of the feedback we got last week on the Court Improvements, we have also been able to make sure that going over the soft limit (on the number of courtiers you can house) is accompanied by a small prestige gain. All in all, we look forward to you trying it out and letting us know what you think. :)


That’s all for now, but we’ll be back next week with another dev diary for some things to come. Stay tuned!


P.S We have started streaming again now on Thursdays, 16:00 CEST.

What's with the sudden 'free feature' lately, without accompanying DLC? I mean, Great Works could be a DLC but you guys giving it for free instead, and now we get (tiny) new feature again :D

If you really want to pay you can send me 20 gold and I'll add it to my treasury. I need to hire a smith soon anyway. :D

I really hope so. A DLC dedicated to fleshing out heresies and customising them (much like HF's pagan reformation) would be fantastic and an insta-buy from me.
Yes! Heresies need some love!
Also inland republic needs to be made playable and interesting, since the importance they had in this periods especially in Italy. But maybe that’s something that we will see in an eventual CK3

Please, pretty please, consider fixing the regnal numbers for the Holy Roman Empire for the names Karl/Charles, Louis/Ludwig, and last but not least Lothair. Its very immersion breaking when its 1300 ad and you get an Emperor named Charles II.

My speculation to the No-DLC policy right now:

There now quite old post that Holy Fury would be the last DLC still stands. The game with the DLC is in a state which can be there forever. Every Region, Religion and Goverment is fleshed out (Theocracy doesn't work with Family Succession).

Right now the programmers mainly fix old longstanding bugs and polish the game. Contentdesigner and Artist still do stuff, for like Great Works, but nothing big and nothing the programmers concern, since this ain't big mechanics.

Development is winding down slowly. Personally I would say 2019 is the year of polish, and after that the CK2 Team stops, and go to new projects.

After that Paradox can reap the benefits of longtail sales of CK2, without paying a development team. If then they start CK3 or a completly new game? Who knows.

But this is just speculation on my part, maybe I am wrong, and we get a big new DLC announced on PDXcon which sas developed in secret, and CK2 will still get new DLCs in the future.

Edit from 18th May 2019: Still stand my speculation, even more now the teased new Bookmark is to be confirmed to be free as well.
But as it is just a speculation, you are of course welcome to respectfully disagree with me. :)

Is this compatible with old save games? I just got my empire fragmented when my 0-old daughter inherited my throne, so I this is a good excuse to bail out and start a new game

Any plans on adding societies to the Aztec religion, which is currently lacking both a Warrior Lodge and Satanist society?

Probably not, new societies require quite a lot of work and can be pretty bug prone. We would also need custom art for it and its probably not worth it.

You never know though!

Probably not, new societies require quite a lot of work and can be pretty bug prone. We would also need custom art for it and its probably not worth it.

You never know though!

Pity! Likewise if you could get the budget for it, it'd be great if the Monasticism doctrine for pagans gave access to a monastic society.

There now quite old post that Holy Fury would be the last DLC still stands. The game with the DLC is in a state which can be there forever. Every Region, Religion and Goverment is fleshed out (Theocracy doesn't work with Family Succession).

Right now the programmers mainly fix old longstanding bugs and polish the game. Contentdesigner and Artist still do stuff, for like Great Works, but nothing big and nothing the programmers concern, since this ain't big mechanics.

Development is winding down slowly. Personally I would say 2019 is the year of polish, and after that the CK2 Team stops, and go to new projects.

After that Paradox can reap the benefits of longtail sales of CK2, without paying a development team. If then they start CK3 or a completly new game? Who knows.

But this is just speculation on my part, maybe I am wrong, and we get a big new DLC announced on PDXcon which sas developed in secret, and CK2 will still get new DLCs in the future.

Considering that they have teased that they are working on a new start date in the 930s, I think you speculation is wrong.

Probably not, new societies require quite a lot of work and can be pretty bug prone. We would also need custom art for it and its probably not worth it.

You never know though!
That's unfortunate, Aztecs feel pretty stale without societies and it's strange they're not getting them even if there are unique reformation doctrines and pyramids for them.

Hopefully it's something that can be accomplished down the line.

@IsakMiller any news if the next big patch will be 64bit or that this move will not be done for Crusader Kings II?
And thus unplayable for me in half a year, with the next MacOS

I just want a Great Schism event for Pre 1000 AD starts

Yeah me too. You could still get the schism events, unless you hold all five patriarchies or something.
I would also love playable theocracies and holy orders, since it seems the game is quite fleshed out already and they're polishing it up right now.
