As per our traditions tomorrows expansion, Monks and Mystics, will be accompanied by a free update. And we have now reached version 2.7.

Our testing shows that it should be possible to continue save games from 2.6.x in 2.7.0. But as per usual we strongly recommend that you finish off any ongoing games in the previous patch level before you update your game to avoid unpleasant surprises. This is especially important if you are achievement hunting in ironman.

To play on a previous patch level:
- Right click Crusader Kings II in Steam and select properties.
- Go to the tab named BETAS and select the desired patch level in the dropdown list
- Close the window and let the game update

- Fixed the logic for the AI being willing to move to your court based on you being able to press their claim(s) sometimes being wrong

# Interface

- The game will now log if character history tries to remove a trait not present, or add one the character already has, or add one the character has the opposite of

- The game will now in most cases log references to undefined titles in triggers and effects

- custom_tooltip now ignores newlines at the end/start of the tooltip, instead adding one of its own

- Added tooltip_info_modifier for event options. Works like "tooltip_info = trait", except it takes an event modifier instead of a trait

- Added artifact_owner and original_artifact_owner scopes
- Added set_artifact_original_owner effect
- The error log will no longer complain about missing titles for hidden narrative events

- Added a "non-interfering" option for opinion modifiers. The AI will not take hostile action against the other character. Also makes the trigger with the same name return true. Non-interference is considered a subset of "obedient", so any obedient character is automatically non-interfering as well

- Added event effect 'show_portrait'
- Added set_artifact_flag / clr_artifact_flag effect (see game/common/artifacts/artifacts_script.info for more info)

- added is_artifact_same_type_as trigger (see game/common/artifacts/artifacts_script.info for more info)

if = {
limit = {
character_realm_percent = {
target = 0.05
has_trait = genius
event = 1234
- Added support for specific portrait properties to hide specific portrait property layers. Conditions for hiding can be scripted. Example:
1 = { # prisoner
factor = 100
modifier = {
factor = 0
prisoner = no
hide_layers = {
# Shave all prisoners and confiscate headgear
1 = { always = yes }
4 = { always = yes }
5 = { always = yes }
- Added a has_portrait_property trigger. Example: has_portrait_property = { layer = 6 index = 1 }. This would check if the character has the "prison" overlay. This can be used anywhere, but should be especially useful for portrait modders

Just hang in there, we are almost there.
" - Added global variables. Any variable prefixed with "global_" will be stored globally rather than in a character/province/landed title "


Does this mean I can really change the AI bonuses in static scripts to give AI global cost reduction? Lets say by this: global_build_cost_city_modifier can reduce all city buildings cost for AI?

Because I can't seem to change any difficulty bonuses in current version of CK2 unlike EU4 It doesn't update the difficult bonuses and remains the same even If I remove them.
I can't wait to play as an Assasin.

Nothing is true.
Everything is permitted.
Why did I start new save two days ago?! What was I thinking!?

Excellent work fixing the game rule reset bug! I thank you.
If someone told me years back I'll be eagerly awaiting a game that allows you to play as a secret member of a minority religion in Europe looking to subvert the establishment, I would not have believed them.
Wait, randomized names for newborns is a DLC feature? I would have traded it for something in the patch honestly, because it has nothing to do with the DLC itself.

Just out of curiosity, what made you jump to that conclusion?
