The world’s favorite medieval grand strategy role-playing experience was updated today with Great Works, a new upgrade to Crusader Kings II. This update, free to all Crusader Kings II players, allows you to relive the era of cathedrals by investing your royal power in building great feats of architecture and wonders that will increase the prestige of all who build them.

True wonders will take decades to build, not to mention further improvements and expansions, but your majesty must demonstrate the material power of the realm.
  • Build Great Works: Construct grand gardens, majestic cathedrals, celebrated universities, libraries and more, increasing the glory of your empire and bringing further bonuses to your rulers.
  • Marvel at Historical Wonders: Control the great wonders of the world - Pyramids, the Pharos, the Apostolic Palace, and others - to increase your prestige. All are represented on the map itself.
  • Upgrade and Improve Great Works: Your descendants will take up the reins to improve the wonders you’ve started. Make a cathedral an artistic masterpiece with gargoyles and stained glass. Make your special fortress an almost unconquerable center of your military power.
This update is free for everyone that owns Crusader Kings II, and it should be downloading via your Steam Client as we speak.

It should be possible to continue your ongoing games from 3.0.1.1 after updating to 3.1. But we can't guarantee there won't be any unforeseen issues doing so. You can lock your game to any previous version by following these instructions.

You will not be able to have any historical wonders if you load up an older save in 3.1. Only games started with 3.1 or later will have that feature!

Please do not report any issues with it in this thread. If you experience problems, please post in our bug report forum.

Already found a bug. In the default start as soon as I went in to Realm view to pick my start I noticed a green spot in Byzantium. Chalkidike belongs to "No Character".

Not just the default start date, EVERY start date. On the bright side, generated adolescents have actual base stats now, which is nice!

Hang on, Pyramid construction (from looking at the script) is locked to:
Code:
potential = {
    OR = {
        culture = egyptian_arabic
        trait = lunatic
        has_religious_feature = religion_feature_pyramids
    }
}
How come characters of either Aztec culture or Aztec faith can't build pyramids?

When I get home from work tonight, I'm rolling back CKII to the previous patch, backing it up, updating and then comparing the two folders to see what's new.
It would be very useful if you could post your findings. I am hoping to compatch my current mod as soon as possible.

Many thanks,

How come characters of either Aztec culture or Aztec faith can't build pyramids?
Does the Aztec faith have the 'pyramids' feature?
