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.

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
We do understand the need for a 64-bit version and we're investigating how much work it will entail and if we have the resources for it. The age of the codebase we're working with might prove to have a couple of extra hurdles in it for us.

Trigger chances for Councilor job events were rebalanced to take into account attribute scores up to 22, instead of the previous 13.
Yes! I've wanted that for a long time. 13 might have made sense when the game was released, but these days it's well below average

The trap upgrade will no longer kill off your whole court.
Oh thanks. Whenever you conquered the Pyramids in Egypt multiple would immediately go there and die. First thing I did was loot them so the traps get destroyed


No changes to nerf tribal retinues a bit though :(

And it would be really great if you could fix some of the wonky tactics where certain unit compositions get penalized. Like cataphracts. This isn't because of a design issue, but a bug with the way special troops are counted :)

We've seen multiple posts during the past weeks where people have been praising our work on CK2 while at the same time being negative about something that another Paradox development team has done.

A reminder for everyone in this thread:
This is NOT an acceptable behavior.

While we understand that the intent of the post is to give us praise about our work, the result of the message is hurtful both towards us and our fellow colleagues.
We are very grateful for all of the love we have received for our work lately and that is something we treasure every word of, and that's why we think you're one of the most rewarding communities to work with.
But criticism of the other game projects does not have its place under the Crusader Kings forum. That critique belongs to the different sub-forums, 'lest everything should devolve into talking behind people's back and creating a generally toxic environment. There are no superior sub-forums in Paradoxplaza - we all engage in this community because we love to discuss the games that we enjoy playing and I hope that we can continue to keep it that way.

Thank you for respecting this.

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.

Anyone else still hoping for a Nestorian/Miaphysite DLC?

This is a curious one. Care to explain the logic behind it?

Haha, aah, I was being creative. I originally wanted to add some special events for getting rid of courtiers using the trap door, so this is something of a compromise. ;) I guess you can imagine that the actual number of courtiers listed is symbolic of a much larger court, and... sometimes those invisible folks go missing. Weird (but cost efficient)!
