When did you add the Saka? Anyways, this patch is just getting better and better! BTW, as we're (kinda) talking about cultures, could you add a "Magyar" or "Old Hungarian" culture for the 769 and 867 starts, that then change to regular Hungarian if Christian/in Pannonian basin. The Magyar culture could work like the Altaic Steppe cultures and maybe use Turkic/Ugric portraits and the Hungarian culture work more like "western" cultures.

It's so tempting to poke EUIV devs, show them Tibet from CKII and gently ask: "Is it so hard? Is it?!".

So will the Zhangzhung and the Sumpa also have access to... what was it called... Monastic Feudalism? Or will they be restricted to just regular Feudalism?
Monastic, all Tibeto-Burman Buddhist/Bön rulers have access to it. It's nothing special, but they can hold Temples as primary holdings (VERY useful as Tibet's history is filled with temples) build Gompa buildings in their Castles. Gompa buildings give bonuses similar to a mixture of a University and a keep, which means that they can get the most potent castle holdings in the game. :)

What are the new Game Rules coming, if any?
I won't elaborate too much, but the new game rules coming with the patch/JD are: Chinese Invasions, Chinese Interactions (range), Border Dispute Wars, Jade Dragon CB's (on/off), Siege Assaults, Siege Events, Multiplayer Assassinations, Multiplayer Invasions, Multiplayer 3rd Party Claims and Childhood Focus Alerts.

When did you add the Saka? Anyways, this patch is just getting better and better! BTW, as we're (kinda) talking about cultures, could you add a "Magyar" or "Old Hungarian" culture for the 769 and 867 starts, that then change to regular Hungarian if Christian/in Pannonian basin.

You should make a suggestion on the suggestion forum regarding the Hungarian culture, if you haven't already :)

After the improvements that came with Reaper's Due I believe that. The changes then were amazing and sorely needed. It was actually these performance improvements that got me back into CK2. Glad to hear you are still considering performance when expanding the game.

Since we got Meneth on the project, we have had as a goal to not let patches slow the game down. :)

Please make Maryul/Ladakh de jure part of Kashmir, at least in the latter bookmarks.
Do you have a source for if/when this should happen? :)

If you can get the game faster than before with extra provinces then you shoiuld've added China properly...
