Hi all, Jamor here.

After a good time in beta in which we were able to get confirmation that the L-Cluster related lag spikes were fixed, and no new critical issues introduced, I'm making 2.1.1 live now as the official version.

#################################################################
######################### VERSION 2.1.1 ###########################
#################################################################

###################
# Free Features
###################

* Hyperlane density can now be changed to "full", which guarantees every possible hyperlane will exist
* You can now choose to start in a trinary or binary star system when creating your empire
* Experimental ETA feature put in for starship movement orders, telling you the approximate date of arrival
* Now possible to achieve partial victory in subjugation and liberation wars with occupied systems splitting off as a new subject or ally in the event of a status quo peace
* Put in greyscale versions of strategic resources icons, to indicate that you currently lack the technology to collect them

###################
# Balance
###################

* Increased power usage of torpedoes
* Reduced frequency of gaining L-Gate Insights from unrelated anomalies by 70%
* A technology must now be researched after gathering all L-Gate insights before you can start the project to open the gates
* Reduced HP of missiles across the board, making point defense more potent
* The Prosperity faction will now be happier if you have war policy set to Defensive Wars Only
* The Imperialist faction is now also OK with ideological wars, and will only be angry if policy is set to Defensive Wars Only
* Reduced the chance of a Marauder Great Khan dying from noncombat causes
* Rogue Servitors can now allow organics to colonize planets
* Increased AI weight for naval cap & command limit techs
* Increased base weight of terraforming techs

###################
# UI
###################

###################
# AI
###################

* AI will now a wait some time before changing AI priority if it recently changed priority

###################
# Performance
###################

* Cached tile resource production for faster performance
* More border calculations optimization
* Borders are now only updated if they need to be, reducing unnecessary operations
* Removed useless recalculation of borders when planet change owners
* Bypass distance cache improvements
* Ensured Starbases owner modifiers are calculated only once, and parallelized that bit
* Parallelizing AI strategy monthly recalc and reducing the number of system evaluated
* More caching of tile related data performance - fixes a performance bug with previous caching of tile related data

###################
# Modding
###################

* Moved scripted variables for buildings into the scripted variables file
* Saved Event Targets should now always persist through Special Projects
* Added is_event_design setting for event ship designs that should be blocked by fleet manager
* Improved performance of Global SavedEventTargets
* You can now define in a section template whether its components (turrets etc) should be drawn graphically or not
* Effects that take name (such as create_ship or set_name) can now extract name from scope, ie set_name = root will take the name from the root object (even if it's a different type of object, such as naming a ship after a leader)

###################
# Bugfixes
###################

* Fixed "Asteroid Collision" anomaly awarding the wrong deposit type

It's too close to the end of the work week to do it right now, but the plan is to make a new 2.1.2 optional beta branch next week, containing more fixes and improvements. We'll get back to you with more on that shortly, but the key thing for us is to get the really badly needed lag fixes in the hands of the whole playerbase now that they have been confirmed. Thanks again for all your help making sure the release version was sound.

Save files from older versions should be compatible with 2.1.1, but just in case you need to roll back, here's how:

Steam library -> Right click on Stellaris -> Properties -> Betas tab -> choose the version you want

Have fun playing this weekend!
