So you want the option to jump ahead in time to go for primogeniture, even if it would take like 100 years to get it early starting in 867?Yes the "What if" should not be hard coded out. What everyone is missing here is all this hard coded must reach certain date to advance absolutely kills the ability of the player to do his "what if". No I'm not talking about starting with gunpowder but "what if" I had a realm like Rome in mind? Talk to any historian. When Rome fell it threw the world backwards 500 years. Or in other words Rome was 500 years ahead of the rest of the world with the republic, the sewers, the baths, aqueducts.
Crusaders Kings 3 is telling me Rome didn't happen. It's not possible. Even if I'm Enstein and my whole court is genius I can't do it until some preset absurd date is reached.
We've hard coded out your what if...a key element to the game for those of us from Crusader kings 2.
Well Rome did exist. ar·bi·trar·y (based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system.) dates to reach certain decisions and options is absurd and a·his·tor·i·cal (lacking historical perspective or context.)
There is a reason technology advanced the way it did. Change takes time and happens gradually. Being a Genius ahead of the time just made you a lunatic that was burned at the stake.
Maybe you should try the "Restore Rome" achievement, just to see how much fun it is.
I haven't found a single decision that's locked behind a date yet.
And the technology system is vastly superior to ck2, since it's no longer based on stealing tech in the Byzantine Empire and you have more freedom to choose.
Succession is an important part of the gameplay and a lot of fun.
If you want easy succession just use a mod or the console... (with mods you can probably also change how tech advancement works)
PS: The "crusader kings community" proofs very well how difficult we humans adapt to change. There is a million ways to effectively get Primogeniture before 1200, but people just assume it's not possible or are to lazy to learn new tricks.
