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.
It also seems like they fixed the wasteland issue on Egypt's Red Sea/Gulf of Suez coast. Seems like they haven't been able to fix the tip of the Sinai yet though.Has Crete got more provinces?
or are my eyes bad?
I'm with you on the surnames for kings in monarchies!About the UI. I like the way the Roman family names are displayed (Cornelia Prima of the Cornelii). Very nice. How will other cultures be displayed? Will there be difference based on culture? Phoenicians (and I reckon a lot of cultures) are all '... son of ..., son of...' or '... son of ...., daughter of' (with possibly prominence determinig whether to reference the father or mother).
Could the way ruler names are being displayed also be changed? I don't like seeing surnames for me kings. Rather than Antigonos I Monophthalmos Antigonid I would prefer if i simply displayed Antigonos I Monophthalmos.

I'm not entirely sure, but the UI shouldn't affect performance as long it doesn't inherits some fancy effects or 3D models, which have to be loaded. I don't see anything of that in the new UI. So it shouldn't change performance at all.How much effort is being put into ensuring performance is stable, and in particular the burden placed on a player's CPU/GPU and pool of RAM? This UX/UI overhaul seems that it might worsen performance potentially with a bit more substance to what is displayed and thus resources needed to generate it constantly while playing.
Is this something that is being worked on under the hood atm and thus still yet to be determined, or is it already known that performance and the utilization/efficiency of RAM/CPU use is actually going to modestly improve/worsen with these changes? I ask this more generally than specific to myself. IR has fairly consistently run better than HOI4/CK2/Stellaris has in terms of the amount of resources used while playing, curious if this might no longer be the case.
Also, I'd like to suggest perhaps three different Senate images to give the mood of their stance towards you. Loyal 2/3 aligned towards player (maybe they are standing in ovation or the like) middling/neutral (seated as is), hostile, maybe like 2/3 opposed (perhaps one of them angrily shouting while speaking before the group). Would be a nice QoL immersion for that littler touch being done.
