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.
I didn't agree with that look at first, but... after I saw this, I think it'll be great to have this kind of photorealistic portraits, if DNA and these kind of details are so important.I like how it works but I liked the original look more (1st DD I think)
those gave a vibe (feeling) of a medieval world. these don't. they are too much of the 3d hype. (I know they are not 3d)
but they look like it.
the portraits look fake and feel wrong in the setting IMO.
(I hope they won't look like this in the final version)
I don't think there wille be an in-game function to do that, but I am sure you could mod the Savegame file for one specific chracter, or remove it alltogether for all in the graphics files somewhere.So.. if i don't want a chain-helmet on my head can i remove it ingame?
Performance was my concern. I will enjoy watching my king's beard grow, but not if it causes too much lag as the CPU decides if the other thousand guys with beards need to add a few inches this month. Seriously enjoying how this is turning out. 3d-esque may not feel "medievally," but these are looking like real people, which I don't think is a bad way to go.This is subject to change as we come up with more things that can change the look but right now always if you get a new trait or a new title or job. I think I also put in a random update once a year, but I cant remember right now. That would depend on performance impact if it stays in the final version but could be used for changing hair styles etc every few years if wanted by modders etc.
Freddie Mercury was a Habsburg?!And the famous Habsburgs' big, long nose, prognatism and falling lower lip!
there is some of that in the game but I dont know all the details which nationalities its supported for (a few anyway). I'm not on the CK2 project atm, I just wrote the portrait system so Doomdark can probably answer this better in a later diary.Also, I noticed the character's name was Erik Stenkilsson af Stenkil. Does this mean patronyms for Nordic/Gaelic/Russian cultures will be in the game, or was it just coincidental?
