Hi all, Jamor again. We're deploying a small, quick hotfix to address two issues we were able to solve today: inability of the launcher to display incompatible mods, and an economy bug related to artisan jobs and consumer goods.

Given that it's early yet and some may not have seen the original changes in 2.4.0, I'll repost those. Please note that due to a human error, namely this producer managing to transcribe fixes from the wrong dev branch in to the patch notes (!), a few of the listed changes in 2.4.0 are not actually present in the build. In the interest of getting the hotfix to you all with maximum speed, those will come in a future update when they can be properly merged and tested. I'll put them in the notes for reference, but crossed out.

#################################################################
######################### VERSION 2.4.1 ##########################
#################################################################

###################
# General
###################

* Added Launcher v2
* Updated all factions titans with panning light meshes. Updated vfx for ether drake’s wing attack (muzzle, projectile, hit effect)
* Caravaneer ship & station vfx update
* Added "/mute <user name>" and "/unmute <user name>" chat commands
* Cloud saving support added on GoG and Paradoxplaza versions of the game
* Launcher can now display incompatible mods pre-game start

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

* Hunter-Seeker Drone jobs now have a preference for pops who would actually be good at it
* The Pop Growth Reduction for Bio-Trophies now actually reduces their growth rate. Driven Assimilators now apply their organic growth penalty as a multiplier the same way as Rogue Servitors do, and is now also 50%
* Defensive Platforms placed on Outposts now provide 2 points of Piracy Suppression for their system. The Great Game tradition from the Supremacy tree now also reduces the cost to build Defensive Platforms by 33%


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

* Shift+clicking on ship count in the Fleet Manager now adds ships up to the nearest unit of ten, using ctrl fills up to the template max size
* Fixed improperly displayed text in the name of Galatron wars
* Protection war name list no longer includes machine uprising and war in heaven
* Removed unnecessary decimal precision in lacking resources tooltips
* Added some tooltips to the planet screen: close button, decisions, tab buttons, garrison and armies, planetary features
* Added a notification when one empire guarantees the independence of another
* Added a defense army icon to the Stronghold and Fortress buildings to help visually identify their effect, and updated the garrison tooltip
* Fixed a cut off display of the clearing cost for ruined arcology blockers
* Fixed incorrectly reversed "they get" and "we get" information showed in commercial pacts

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

* The AI will now look at several Edicts and try to enact one of them, whilst still remembering the one they want the most and save towards enacting that
* AI will now wait at least a year before attempting to propose the same diplomacy deal to the same target
* Fixed AI not building enough defense platforms
* Automated building now checks that upkeep cost is covered by income
* Fixed artisan jobs flipping constantly between active and unemployed

###################
# Stability
###################

* Improved performance by reducing the number of string copies in modifiers
* Parallelized some planet functions
* Optimized calculations done in frame rendering
* Bunch of caching and optimizations to planet job calculations
* Fixed a slowdown when viewing the slave market

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

* Fixed an incorrect scripted trigger which could sometimes result in the deletion of research labs when upgraded
* Fixed literally unplayable "the the" typo in ancrel.23.desc
* Fixed empires that have outlawed slavery not emancipating slaves on planets they conquer
* Fixed a possible crash when a planet has no pops
* Fixed an instant repair exploit when you dismantle a starbase module while it's under attack
* Fixed a bug that could cause rivalry declarations and closed borders enacted by you to make you instead the target of those things from the other empire
* Removed an exploit where when transferring, merging, and transferring ships again while paused, one could cheekily cause them to become invisible and untargetable in combat
* Fixed an overflow bug with relative empire power calculations
* Removed incorrect ability to completely depopulate primitive planets with raiding bombardment stance
* Fixed nonfunctional modifiers to colony ship build cost
* Fixed a potential crash in AI when evaluating market values
* Odd Factories no longer sometimes block pops from getting purged, because you monsters should be free to purge whatever you want

Please note that save file compatibility between versions is not guaranteed. If you have an important 2.3.3 game going, please roll back to that version before trying to load the save in 2.4.1.

Instructions on how to keep playing on older versions here.


You can also use this method to opt in to the stellaris_test branch on Steam, which is necessary for multiplayer cross play between Steam and the other stores we are available on. If you have a 2.3.3 crossplay game going on, that version is present on Steam on the crossplay_rollback branch.

Thanks for your feedback and issue reports. We'll keep at it but I wanted to get this to you as soon as possible before the weekend. We'll get the MIA fixes in as soon as we can.

Original 2.4 Announcement can be found here!
