  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

As long as we are talking "common sense". Is there a chance to get these 3 improvements for free ?

1. No more comet events
2. Ironman doesn't save automatically each month
3. Better UI

I'm aware that for 1 and 3 mods exist, however it's a pain for modders to have to keep up with patches.

This probably isn't the place to post these, you're better using the suggestions forum.

I'd also suggest that you develop point three a little - better UI is so general a term that it's almost meaningless. If you have some specific improvements you'd like to see, post them for the devs attention :)

Doesn't look like it, let's hope for a double or extra big announcement next week! :)

I wonder what the theme for the next expansion will be...
Oh I want an East and South East Expansion so bad, they haven't gotten any love in so long, and the Sengoku Jidai is so badly modeled same with China's tributary system plus they still have western portraits D:

First diary of 2016 added.

For now I'll add to the current list, but at some stage I'll re-organise this so that post Cossacks diaries are more prominent.

Do you have a list of the common sense dev diaries somewhere, or any idea where I can find a list of them? Or were the list deleted with the cossacks?

When will 1.16 come out? Im afraid of a repeat from 1.15....

My steam autoupdated, and I unknowingly opened EU4, only to find my ironman gone. I was so close to Ruina Imperii and An Early Reich :(

Since i dont want to lose my current Perm run, when is the next major patch? (Also, how do i open the game without deleting my savefiles :oops:)

It hasn't been announced yet.
All we know by now [Johan] is that there is at the very least 2 months.
