• 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.

I'd like to see more too, especially if some kind of ship upgrade system has made it into the game. Hopefully once the New York convention is over we will see more.

Con is well over, but the producer (me) landed back in Vancouver with some sort of ebola virus, which floored me for all of last week, and now I'm mostly up and around and playing catch up.

You'll all be happy to know I've got a DevDiary from our lead programmer in my hot (non-feverish) little hands and will be posting it soon.

As well, I think there are some video interviews with the lead designer coming out soon, so hang tight!

Dev dairies are all well and good. Just don't let them interfere with efforts to get the new game out by September.

We must observe the proprieties, if you please.

I won't lie... that was the worst flu I've had in awhile. Not that it lasted this long - rather it knocked me down for a week, I spent a week wobbling around trying to catch up on work in the office... mostly I'm annoyed how badly it pulled me from the loop.

BUT never fear - the dev diaries are coming. Some small changes (nothing to do with my bleh time) have moved things a bit, but they are still coming.

In the meantime, I'm here, and will answer things as best I can, when I can, when it doesn't cut into the cool info of a dev diary. For example, Polar Mongoose, yes, we've made some changes to upgrades - all weapon turrets can now be upgraded, in a logical fashion, to allow you to move up and down in a weapon family, but not across to another, incompatible weapon family. A lot of people wanted more weapons upgrade control than just automatically upgrading missiles, so this moves things in that direction without it turning into a logistical (not to mention logical) nightmare.

Great. Was a bit silly to do a whole new generation of ships just to switch the laser turrets to a newer model. :)

glad your back and Okay, and I can see what you mean about logical upgrades, though I would propose that it should be more about time spent in dry dock than anything, depending on how a Mount is, you can upgrade a lot of different weapon systems on current ships/planes and such, without redesigning the entire vehicle, look at the Stryker units... I think they can come with Missile mounts chainguns or even antivehicle armorment.

I was reading the Wiki and was wondering if the new armor penetration model was inspired by the super hardcore 4x Aurora?
