CK3 Dev Diary #45 - 1.2 Patch Notes

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

- Extended the Dutch presence slightly, to include a couple of counties in Flanders and Brabant.

Will Frisian be added as well now?

Dutch =/= Frisian, two different languages with different history who only happen to be part of the Netherlands today.

Loving the patch notes

but by any chance is there a fix to the issue that when you marry into your dinasty as a culture that uses patronymics your childern get a matronymic instead? I did not see it but it could have slipped away from my sight ahah

Which is not the bug report forum.

Not sure why you're hell bent on using the word bug which no one else did? Some of the MP issues are nots bugs per say. They're either connectivity issues, OOS, lack of a basic feature which is chat etc.. Just because they're not "bugs" doesn't mean they don't have to be addressed? Like I don't get what you're trying to insinuate here.

Like I don't get what you're trying to insinuate here.
My point is that you stand the greatest chance of getting your issues addressed if you are specific about them. Each bugfix or feature addition is a kind of task that Paradox puts in their database, and then they must match it with the appropriate programmer who actually knows how to fix things. Of course first they must have that task prioritised because some may be more pressing than others; and here there is a world of difference between a bug and a feature suggestion. A bug is fixed for its own sake; but if you want new a feature in then you actually have to convince several people in the CK3 team that this is a feature that they should add. You don't do that by shouting, you do that by being detailed and following the protocol. That includes posting in the correct forum.

You won't accomplish anything by just saying that there are issues and vaguely gesturing at them. The developers aren't short on issues they need to solve.

I'm positively impressed (and mildly surprised) to see the patch adressing basically all core issues (MAA stack, OP tribals, AI bad at economy, too much seduction) I've had with the game... At times, PDX games forgot about catching up on bugs & technical debt in favor of pumping out gimmicks.

Of course, Ruler Designer will be neat, too, but those fixes are far more important. Looking forward to doing another few runs.

Finally!

Now all that remains is to add more provinces and holdings in the Netherlands to reflect it's historical importance and urbanization.

If you mean the territory of modern Netherlands, then you are incorrect. The urbanization didn't really happen until the late middle ages, if you mean modern Belgium. Yes, totally.

One step at a time I suppose. They fixed Franconian names (again) too

What I actually meant was the Southern Netherlands (modern-day Belgium), which is currently very underrepresented and missing important historical cities like Mechelen. and Aalst. There should also be more counties added like Gent and Artois.

is the catholic fervor fixed?

You dont wanna read through the patch notes hehe... Well, I think these 3 changes alone should alleviate the problem:
- Successful Holy Wars now affect fervor significantly less (minor Holy Wars reduce by 1, Duchy Holy Wars by 2, Kingdom Holy Wars by 5)
- Unsuccessful Holy Wars no longer reduce the attacking Faith's fervor
- Halved the impact of Fervor on the speed of the Convert Faith of County councilor task, converting a high-fervor faith as a low-fervor one should no longer be impossible (but still hard, of course!)

Think it has been asked before: Is the new patch save-game compatible?

Im asking because I want to complete the "Play until 1453" achievement, so I guess I should tell Steam to keep using the older version?

In CK3 the Hundred Years' War never happened. Edward had no claim.
with basically every mechanic there will be fringe cases where you can say it doesn't reflect this or that historical event. the problem is the game must have a one size fits all mechanic for everything. In this case it is presumed that it will overall be better for that situation not to occur all the time in order for it to occur in the off chance that the HYW circumstances somehow exist

Now the winter holidays are almost upon us, so Dev Diaries will slow down once again. We’ll be back next year!

Thanks for the patch, and have a great winter.
