  • New cultures: Sulista, Nordestino, Paulista, Amazonic, Ecuadorian, Venezuelan, Colombian, Argentine, Chilean, Uruguayan, Paraguayan

  • Military Formations: Armies and Fleets can now be created and disbanded. You assign both commanders and units of specific types to them. All military configuration and control like unit hiring, upgrading and disbanding (including Conscription battalions) is now done through Military Formations, rather than through buildings (like barracks) and individual commanders. Disbanding units recognizes keyboard modifiers (shift/ctrl); note the tooltip is not updated to reflect this yet.
    Military Formations have an Organization score, which impacts Recovery Rate, Offense/Defense, and Morale Gain, and a Supply score which impacts Morale recovery. Also we added icons and colors for the customization of a Military Formation's visual identity.
  • Mobilization Options: A tab available on Army formations lets you configure how much extra goods you want your armies to consume when mobilized, with benefits provided to all units in the formation at a goods cost per unit.
  • Travel Network: Created a travel network based on state hubs and ocean nodes. Added functionality for 3D models to move over the travel network for formations. Added graphical arrows for formation travel. Military Formations will update their travel path costs/speed if connections on their route change. When a Formation fails to find a Travel Network path, it will now notify and station Formation at the closest accessible HQ/Sea Node.
  • Frontline and Battle Graphics: Rather than a single battle diorama across the front when a battle is happening, you can now see your own and enemy armies spread out across the frontline at all times. Detailed battle dioramas will spawn when battles break out in a state. Units will wear uniforms indicating which country they belong to and will be wielding weapons and other accessories (artillery, horses, etc) suitable for their type. Mobilization Options such as air surveillance can also have a strong visual impact.
  • Multiple Simultaneous Battles: Generals on a Front now each advances independently of the others and can start multiple simultaneous battles on a Front, one per state, deeper and deeper into the state as occupation is gained
  • Shared fronts and State-based Battles: Fronts adjacent to two or more allies in the same war will now be contiguous, preventing the proliferation of fronts that could result in unmanageable gameplay. Furthermore, fronts now only move when a sufficient number of battles have been won to completely occupy an entire state, making front movement a lot more predictable.
  • Companies: Each country now has a number of company slots which increases from technology and laws. A company has a number of associated building types, and improves the throughput and construction speed of those building types in its country. If a company's buildings have high productivity compared to the global average, the company will gain Prosperity over time and unlock a special bonus modifier. There are a number of basic companies that are available to all countries which can construct their associated building types, and about 100 special flavored (mostly historical) companies which are generally upgraded variants of basic companies and may be available due to factors such as culture or which states you own. A small number of countries start with a predefined historic company at game start.
  • Local Prices: The degree to which the Market can influence the price on goods in a State is now capped by the Market Access Price Impact modifier. This means that local production and consumption will now always matter when determining the price of a good in a state, creating the opportunity for local synergies and supply chains.
    Unincorporated States have -10% state access price impact.
  • Reverse Sways: It is now possible for a participant in a diplomatic play to offer support to either side in exchange for a desired sway
  • Trade States: Implemented 'Trade States' diplomatic action that allows a country to either give away a state, request a state from another country, or offer to trade one state for another state
  • Alert Settings: You can now customize which Alert types should appear inside / outside the Important Actions ball. Added a message settings tab for Alerts and Important Actions in the Message Settings window.
  • Pollution: now has mechanical effects and is fully exposed in State and Building panels: high pollution now gives a malus to mortality, standard of living and migration attraction. This malus can be counteracted by the health insurance institution. Also added a map mode for pollution.
  • Unit Experience: Added experience gain and veterancy levels to units. Experience is gained over time, more during battles and lost when reinforcing after taking losses.
  • Commander orders: You can now always adjust Commander Orders to whatever you like at any time. If they cannot switch to it immediately (because they're in battle) they will do so at the earliest opportunity. Orders have been streamlined and indicate how the Commander should behave now, which is detached from any sort of target location. Several new Orders have been added as well, most of them unlocked by having specific Commander Traits and Military Formation composition. The default General Order has been changed to Advance, in order to make Armies at a Front active instead of passive by default.
  • Naval Invasion Planner / Panel: New interfaces and mechanics for improved control and insight into your naval invasions. The Stand By and Naval Invasion commander orders have been removed. You now start Naval Invasions via Military Lens or Formations.
  • Implemented a feature where each time an Admiral loses a battle, he's marked as defeated. When a fleet is composed of only defeated admirals, it's forced to return to its home HQ. Once reaching the HQ all defeated flags are cleared.
  • Fleets now have a Presence in a Sea Node which affects the effectiveness of Admiral Orders in that Sea Node. Presence is reset whenever a Fleet moves.
  • Naval Orders in a Sea Node are now visualized on an emblem surrounding the node
  • Fleets and ongoing wars are now listed in Sea Region Panel
  • Animations for both Army and Fleet Battle dioramas have been added to indicate Defeat and Victory

  • The "Start Diplomatic Play" interaction has been changed into "Make Diplomatic Demand". This allows one country to demand a single war goal from another, which if rejected will start a diplomatic play for that wargoal. It is possible to bypass the demand phase and start a diplomatic play right away (useful if you want to make multiple demands for example).
  • Services, Electricity and Transportation are now local goods whose prices are fully set based on local production and consumption and whose market price plays no role at all
  • Added new Frontier Colonization Law
  • Units can be upgraded over time to the currently selected Default Unit Type for their group (infantry, artillery, cavalry) by pressing the according button.
  • Barracks and Conscription Centers PMs that dealt with unit types have been removed for the most part. A new Training category has been added instead.

  • Added a bi-directional transfer popup to exchange units and commanders between Military Formations
  • Armies can now be demobilized during wars, leading to them returning to the closest HQ and gradually reducing their mobilization consumption over 3 months

  • Added the Become Subject sway which allows you to offer to become the Subject of a country (and consequently offer a country to become your Subject) in exchange for Diplomatic Play support
  • Added the Transfer Subject sway which allows you to transfer one of your Subjects (and consequently offer a country to transfer their Subject to you) in exchange for Diplomatic Play support
  • Added the Transfer State sway which allows you to transfer one of your State (and consequently offer a country to transfer their state to you) in exchange for Diplomatic Play support
  • Added the Diplomatic Pact sway which allows you to offer certain Diplomatic Pacts such as Trade Agreements, Customs Unions and Bankrolling to a country in exchange for Diplomatic Play support, with a forced duration of 5 years if accepted. Bankroll pacts resulting from this do not generate any Obligations while their forced duration is in effect.

Patch 1.5 is how Victoria 3 should look on the release. On the one hand, thank you for the hard work and improvements you added to the game but on the other it is a pity that we need to wait one year for them.

So far so good - maybe I'll get my 3rd tutorial achievement after 120 hours?
Game runs smoothly, I see many tiny improvements here and here.

Keep up great work! Almost 10K players on Steam already.

So the United Principalities just formed in Moldavia, while I was playing Walachia, I became their Subject, and I have no clue how or why that happened. Didn't find anything in the patchnotes.

Ok, found the events in the files, though I haven't looked into the files for a long time and don't 100% get what exactly is happening.

All these changes are very, very good !! Many of them were demanded log ago. Exellent work by the team !!

Many, many changes to address and congratulate for, overall great patch!!

Only one thing that make noise to me:
  • Limited pops that can join Intelligentsia to Academics, Aristocrats, Bureaucrats, Capitalists, Clergymen, Clerks, and Engineers
As I see in Game mechanics, an Aristocrat can be communist, or a farmer industrialist and all is balanced thought probability Aristocrat much more inclined to monarchy than communism, etc.

While the idea of such pops to be more inclined to intelligentsia is correct, there should be no 'limit' to it, as a shopkeeper, officer or a simple coal miner could be inclined and join intelligentsia movement.

It is like limit soldiers and officers to armed forces or Labourers to tarde unions

I think a literacy value could be much more in order than just limit it to certain pop.

Hi,

The new content looks promising, and finally, I believe it will save the game. Also, thanks for listening to us about the new Ottoman Empire uniforms, PDX! :)

Should the UK be given a bit of a railroading nudge so they get Hong Kong most of the time (80%)? In most games they don't end up getting a treaty port and if they do it is located elsewhere.
 
Looks good so far, sadly I got an issue where after some time I just couldnt move units to new or existing formations anymore. Maybe I'm missing something, but it did work when starting a new game and the same method of doing it stopped working at some point. Is there a mechanic involved or is this just a bug?
 
I really welcome many of quality of life improvements like not having to deal with the obscure combi-production methods of chemical plants anymore.

BUT: The whole overhaul of the military system feels like a downgrade for me. This requires much more micromanagment which I don't enjoy in a game which I bought because of its great political and economical macromanagment. And naturally the new battle system drains performance which was already a problem. Less would really have been more here.
EDIT: Ok I learned how to merge armies now. My first impression was of GB where I started with 9(!) different armies in HQs across the world and so many low formation organization hints. First I thought I had to hire 1 general for every army and then 1 admiral each for naval invasion.
