No balancing of crazy AI possessing charter Companies?!?
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Chrome is the only reason I doubled my RAM from 16 to 32, when you have 3 Chromes with 50+ tabs and another 2,3,4 apps and you work something memory usage gets dangerously high.We hadn't updated them in a while, but clearly the game today is not the same as the game on release 5 years ago.
Assets take disk space, more tags and provinces means more RAM is needed to keep track of everything.
Finally we have to take ecosystem changes into account. A computer on "idle" today uses more RAM than it did earlier this decade, just look at your Chrome memory usage for example.
The game itself requires less than 2GB of RAM to run, but that's free memory and not total memory, which is unfortunately not the way minimum system requirements are expressed.
So you release a colonial themed DLC that is completely unplayable, due to AI not colonizing, for people who did not buy one of the previous DLCs? Wow, how much did the quality fell down.... Does any1 else need another reason to not buy GC at release?
All Paradox releases are little more than beta tests you pay to get into.
Never buy anything from them until at least one, probably 2 bugfixes are out. (and for new games, make that 5 or 6).
Optimal strategy with buying from paradox is to wait until it's on sale somewhere...Both because its cheaper, and because by then, the worst bugs are usually sorted out.
They are working to fix it, I know. It does not change anything about how bad it looks.
