CK2 Dev Diary #32: Intriguing quality of life changes

Good afternoon. I’m Magne Skjæran, and you might remember me from my modding and optimization dev diary at the end of summer. My last day at Paradox was a few days after that, but since I had a great time working there this summer, I returned to the CK2 team about a month ago to work on the game part-time.
Today I will be covering a topic that’s been briefly mentioned earlier in the Easing Executions dev diary: quality of life changes in regards to the intrigue screen and plotting.

While the image shown in that dev diary was a mockup, the planned changes have now been implemented. However, the actual art isn’t done yet, so most images in this dev diary are touched up based on mockups rather than showing my programmer art. There is after all a reason I work as a programmer rather than an artist.

So let’s go through all the changes we’ve made to the Intrigue screen in detail:
upload_2016-11-28_14-56-40.png

I’ve numbered the changed aspects.

First, at #1, we’ve got the new decisions menu. It now shows 6 decisions at once rather than the old 4, making it easier to find what you’re looking for.

At #2, you can see that each decision now has a button allowing you to mark it as important or not important, thus allowing you to control which decisions you get alerts for. Marking a decision as important will change the background to gold, enable alerts, and move it to the top of the list. The last bit only happens once you exit and return to the decisions screen, since decisions jumping around when you click on them would be rather annoying.

#3 is a button allowing you to reset the priority settings to default.
What decisions are important is saved across campaigns, so you won’t have to mark decisions as important or not important every single game.

Further, at #4, we have a new tab: My Plots. This mostly just moves the plot functionality out of the way to give more space to the decisions list, but it does have one new addition: you can now clearly see who the target of each backed plot is, shown at #5.

Next, let’s go to the Prisoners screen:
upload_2016-11-28_14-59-28.png

At #1, 2, and 3 you can see the new prisoner mass actions. These allow you to release, ransom, or execute all prisoners currently shown on the screen, except those that have been marked as locked using the button you see at #4.

Further, prisoners can now be filtered by the eight different criteria you see at and below #6. This can then of course be reset back to being unfiltered using the button at #5.
A minor change is that this tab now fits 6 prisoners at once rather than 5.

When using the mass actions you’ll be asked to confirm and told about the ramifications of your actions:
upload_2016-11-28_14-57-29.png

This ensures you’re never caught unawares by tyranny or similar.

Next up, Known Plots:
upload_2016-11-28_14-58-2.png

Here there’s two new additions. At #1, we’ve got a new button that lets you ask the plotter to end their plot, saving you a few clicks.

At #2 we’ve got a new feature: if you know about a plot and you’re in the group of people that’s possible to invite, you can ask to join. The AI will always accept this, while if you’re playing multiplayer the other player can refuse if they want to.

The “auto stop plots” button has also been moved to only show up within this tab.
As to the Threats tab there’s nothing new there except for six threats being shown at once rather than five.

That’s it for the Intrigue screen, but we still have a couple of tidbits related to plotting left.
upload_2016-11-28_14-58-36.png

When invited to a plot you’ll now be able to see who the target is, saving you from having to use the character or title finder in order to figure it out.

Finally, when a plotter tries and fails to kill your spymaster due to them discovering their plot, you now have the option to keep the plot a secret, which is ideal for cases where you would rather join the plot than expose it.

That sums up all the changes we’ve made to make the intrigue aspects of the game simpler to interact with, and providing you the information you need to make decisions. Hopefully you’ve found this dev diary as intriguing to read as it was to write!

For execution and releasing, it doesn't matter, since those interactions don't care who the character's liege is.
For ransom, it'll ransom the first eligible character on the list for each liege.

How is the "first" eligible character decided? What's the priority?

And a bit more general than just ransom: will the popup warn you about warscore changes as well?

Same order as the prisoner list.

The pop-up does not currently take warscore into account in any way, no.

For ransom, it'll ransom the first eligible character on the list for each liege.

Just the first eligible character and then the user must hit again, or will it keep a queue and do the rest?

Though to be honest I could hardly complain if I had to hit the mass button multiple times. It is still an improvement.

Ahhhh.

That it nice, that does solve the issue of sometimes it does get annoying with certain alerts.

It doesn't attempt to queue them up in any way, no, so you'll need to click multiple times if you've got multiple characters with the same liege.

Further, at #4, we have a new tab: My Plots. This mostly just moves the plot functionality out of the way to give more space to the decisions list, but it does have one new addition: you can now clearly see who the target of each backed plot is, shown at #5.
Very nice. Any chance the shifting of plots to that subtab, and the plural in the name might be an indication that we finally might be able to start more than one plot at a time? (Potentially limited by the intrigue stat, making that stat relevant to your own ability to plot instead of diplomacy being the primary stat used for plotting.)

Also, is there any chance that the button to mark a character as special interest might get re-added to the character page/window, instead of just being hidden away in the diplo menu? It would be nice to have easy, at a glance access to that button again. (Also, any chance you might know why it was hidden away in the first place?)

At #1, 2, and 3 you can see the new prisoner mass actions. These allow you to release, ransom, or execute all prisoners currently shown on the screen

Then, could I castrate (or blind) more than one prisoners at the same time?

As mentioned in relies to the previous dev diary about this screen, it does not imply that, no. The plural refers to the combination of the plot you lead and the plots you're backing.

Also, is there any chance that the button to mark a character as special interest might get re-added to the character page/window, instead of just being hidden away in the diplo menu? It would be nice to have easy, at a glance access to that button again. (Also, any chance you might know why it was hidden away in the first place?)
No clue.

The mass actions are currently limited to the three I mentioned. No mass castration or blinding, I'm afraid.

Well, thank you anyway.

Hey Meneth
Much love for this DD, you are a great man.

The only thing I would dare to suggest is to sort the prisoners according to their social status, so the first eligible character will always be the one that costs the most in case of ransom.
If you have a Caliph's daughter and a simple courtier and if the courtier happens to be over the daughter and the Caliph has only 119 ducats, ransoming the courtier first will disable the ransoming of the daughter.

Anyway, glad to have you back in Pdx. Cheers and keep doing the fantastic job

Great changes. I'm really wishing for more improvements to plot handling however: ability to sort and filter plots, and particularly to dismiss unimportant ones. Currently the plot list is like an e-mail inbox full of spam with 2-3 important messages hidden somewhere God knows where...

The only thing I would dare to suggest is to sort the prisoners according to their social status, so the first eligible character will always be the one that costs the most in case of ransom.
If you have a Caliph's daughter and a simple courtier and if the courtier happens to be over the daughter and the Caliph has only 119 ducats, ransoming the courtier first will disable the ransoming of the daughter.
You can already sort the list by "title", which is relatively close to how the ransom calculation works. Not identical though, but reasonably close.

I find nothing even potentially objectionable in this DD. In fact, I think my eyes are leaking from sheer happiness.

I see some interesting icon after religion tab. Gut, gut.

I bet it'll allow you to link your game to your MySpace profile. Logo looks similar enough.

And MySpace integration is what we've always wanted!

Knowing the CK2 community, I'm sure this will be a day 1 mod.
I'm relatively sure mods already do that.
The mass execute/ransom/release actions can't really be modded to do something else though; they're tied in the code to those specific actions.
You could move them around, change the icons, etc., but the actual functionality isn't moddable beyond what modding you can already to to those individual actions.

On the Backed Plots page, would it be possible to see the strength of your backed plots? If the strength is at 20%, I might not want to join. But if it is at 90%, then I'll probably jump in to bump it over the threshold.
