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.
Speaking of cultures, vaguely, will "Poganstvo" be changed? In most slavic languages it means... very bad things... so far there has been no word on the devs thoughts about this. Understandable that it's not slavic since "Slavic Faith" group but still. Being derogatory seems like a step back.
Would be better if culture conversion (speed? ability?) depended on how far/close the region being converted is from other regions with the same culture. Would encourage people to convert things in regions close to said cultures rather than whatever they want.One of the things I don't like about many Paradox games is that it seems pretty easy for one stray ruler to convert an entire other region halfway across the continent.
Depends on which language, many Slavs have issue with it. In Russian it just means Filth for example. Discussion has already been had about this for a few pages in the related thread. Bare minimum for the faith should be to not have a negative meaning in any of the languages.It literally means Paganism, which is still used massively by CK2 even though it's a derogatory term.
Glad you like it! We currently don't have Coptic in, but that's not to say it's been axed forever.Cool work! Although are their any culture maps of the full 867 start date? I’ve seen some full 1066 going around but the 867 one cuts out most of Africa and Asia.
Another question is whether Coptic culture will be in Egypt, since the 106) start date doesn’t have it...
The game just keeps getting better, cultures went from being literally useless in Ck2 to having what seems like a major game mechanic in ck3!
Screenshot #6 m'friend.Can you give us peak at some of the “special innovations”
The title is balanced so that such a situation is unlikely to commonly appear (i.e., maybe once per game for the player if they were *really* trying to break-neck progress through innovations and little else), but here, I'm afraid that yes, that is the case. You can definitely be quite far ahead technologically, you can even be immensely far ahead of less developed cultures, but there is that slight upper limit to exactly how much more advanced you can be.Why is it a good idea to have static era dates? Wouldn't it make much more sense to have dynamic criteria?
What happens, for instance, if your culture has unlocked everything available for its time period? It just has to wait for the right year to arrive before it can progress further?
Most of the old ones from CK2, a handful of new ones, and hopefully many more to come over time! Cultures are a lot of fun to make and implement, but we've also got to do a fair amount of research to try and get them right, so it's something we'll doubtless add to going forwards.This was pretty cool! It would be cool to have the full list of cultures, i'm really excited for that.
Also are the melting pots and culture splits the same as in CK2 or are there new ones too?

This is something that's been discussed a little internally, but we've no firm plans on it yet, and it won't be like this for launch, I'm afraid.I don't know how I feel about Anglo-Saxons as a single culture. In 867, there seems to have been a distinction between the Angles of Northumbria, Mercia, and East Anglia, as opposed to the southern Saxons. Alfred the Great began the efforts of unifying the two cultures, but Mercians continued considering themselves different people from the Saxons long after his death. Therefore, I'd suggest that in 867, there would be cultures of Saxon and Anglish, but in 1066 they would have melted into Anglo-Saxon.
Not quite sure what you mean by "Briton": we have three Brythonic cultures (Cornish, Welsh, & Breton), but Briton in the Roman sense is long-dead by 867, and British in the modern sense is almost a thousand years away. Icelandic, as in CK2, is represented by Iceland alone retaining Norse culture in 1066.Is there a Briton culture? What about Icelandic?
Character culture! And, well, sure! I don't think your vassals are likely to necessarily take that well, and the peasants will resent some uppity foreigner coming in and telling them that their traditions are bunkum (at least until you educate them till they think they're Greek too). Selling your local traditions down the line for technological advancement is, sadly, a bit of a human tradition, I'm afraid.Does the technology you have access to, say succession laws, depend on the characters culture or the province culture of the capital?
What prevents some scottish backwater noble to culture flip to greek or have his heir educated as greek and immediately gain access to all innovations unlocked by Byzantium?
Naturally. We have, pre-emptively, mined all stone from the new map, so only PDS will be able to build castles, but that's more of a security thing, you understand.
Characters only get one culture, and you can't be the head of a culture you don't belong to.What if I am the Head of more than just one culture?
It is, though not necessarily easily.Is it possible to change character Culture?
Cultural heads do not have to be independent. Indeed, many won't be, since we have more than a few mighty empires scattered around that totally subsume cultures within their borders.Does this imply that cultural heads don't have to be independant, some of the earlier screenshots seem to imply they had to be independant?
Also how hard a requirment is there on the system for there to always be a cultural head?
Will there be cultures without cultural heads? Will they be at a disadvantage / only gain through exposure?
How does changing culture work as a non-member? I suppose there is no county level tech now?
I am so in love with this system with how you've taken the most un-fleshed out parts of CK2 and combined them but I have so many things to wrap my head around.
This is a departure though. Does this not clamp down on or entirely eliminate staying tribal long term, which was very much viable in CK2 tech economy and taxes be damned.
