Most of the AI's "thoughts" are not recorded in the save, so this should work fine with an existing save.

So this AI debt thingy didn't actually have to do anything with hiring and disbanding mercenary companies?

This thread (not mine) by the way has some good suggestions on mercs that would probably also help the AI:

Well it's an expense, but at the root no. You could give an AI 1 000 000 ducats and it would refuse to pay back the loans anyway if they were large enough.

I came across this video recently reporting some issues there, thought it might be useful.

The tl;dw is basically this:

@Johan or @Groogy do we ever get an statement on the performance issues on macOS.
I takes 10:49 to complete an observer run to 1450 in macOS, while Windows 10 does it in 4:51 on the same hardware.
A response on it would be interesting. The Mac version does seem about half as fast as the windows version. I’ve given up and run it in parallels 16. Some results below. I ran in observer mode speed 5 until 1450. The results surprised me a bit (it’s not half the speed).

Mac OS 4:10 (1440p)
Parallels 16 Virtual Machine Windows 10 3:51
Bootcamp Windows 10 3:39

So the windows versions even the VM are running in full 5k resolution. So the Mac version is actually a bit slower if I run it in 5K and looks a lot crappier (not devs fault). All this was run on a 2020 IMac27 inch 5k with i7 and 5500xt gpu. The bootcamp version seems to not have been updated for this Mac so the windows version may be a bit faster with driver updates.
