Free Features

  • Added Chinese holding icons

Balance

  • The AI is now much less likely to instantly give up when attacked with a Tributary CB
  • You now lose the Kowtow trait when the dynasty in china changes
  • When accepting to become a tributary of China, as a demand from asking them to re-open the Silk Road, it no longer costs more Grace than turning down their demand completely
  • If you personally kill your own Chinese courtiers, the Emperor will no longer be sorry and refund you the grace

AI Improvements

  • Told the AI that provinces with more holdings, slots, and buildings are better, and it should try to keep those for itself when handing out titles
  • Fixed the AI loving viceroyalties so much it'd try to give duchies out as viceroyalties even when not allowed to do so due to being a vassal, and then destroying the duchy in a fit of rage when it realized it wasn't allowed to do so
  • Told the AI that if it considers a province to be a high priority target, it should probably also consider it to be a possible target, rather than deciding to not go there just because it is slightly too far away
  • Told the AI that it isn't a good idea to grant a title to someone you just revoked a title off of, even if it is a duchy where you hold no land yourself, and that it might be a good idea to hold onto the duchy you just revoked for a little while before giving it away

Interface

  • The "arrange marriage" button is now disabled for characters who can't marry (E.G., eunuchs), and they are no longer included in the selection lists for the diplomatic action
  • Fixed toggling province embellishments not working
  • Fixed ESC not closing the "you need to restart to apply graphical settings changes" window
  • The trade route tooltip now tells you how much the value of the route is changed by external factors, if the route is not currently at 100% value

  • Fixed the contact address in the EULA having some mysterious spacing
  • Fixed map modes in some cases being wrongly colored after loading a save
  • Units raised from provinces rather than the military view now also obey your rally points
  • Fixed the "not pacified by liege" tooltip entry when declaring a war on another vassal mentioning an expiry date of 1 Jan 1 when you've never been pacified. Now only shows expiry if you're currently pacified
  • Fixed the event countdown for narrative events in MP overlapping the event text
  • Fixed the Ruler Designer not being usable in MP due to the designed character getting reset upon hitting "Ready"
  • Fixed apostrophes and periods attempting to leave this mortail coil in on-map names
  • Fixed the tooltip for the army coat of arms being unselectable and having a flickering tooltip
  • Fixed the title tier requirement in the grant title interaction not getting translated to other languages

  • Added a cooldown icon for sending a Physician
  • Fixed the effect tooltip for becoming a tributary to China sometimes not fitting into its window

  • Corrected a few cases of highlighting and capitalizing of game terms missing in the China Menu
  • Fixed accented characters in non-English languages not showing up at all in the big decorative letter in narrative events. Now they'll show their Latin equivalent instead. E.G., É will be shown as E

  • Fixed the Assassin join requirement tooltip showing the sub-conditions of "any playable ruler" failing even when there's a ruler that meets the conditions
  • Fixed the Chinese Emperor getting the Combat Modifier icon at times
  • Fixed character names based on ancestors using their regnal names rather than birth names. Most notably, this could result in Chinese emperors using a previous emperor's temple name as their birth name

  • Fixed it not being visible to the player that smiths will not marry
  • The Taoist religion now has its own piety icon
  • Provided a way to deal with excessively hairy family members
  • Updated Grace condition tooltips in the China menu to no longer mentions "offmap power", but simply, eg. "the Tang Empire"
  • Fixed text overflowing in the tooltip for Becoming a Tributary to China
  • Fixed the multiplayer button being enabled after hitting "Continue" in the launcher and resigning, despite this changing the checksum, making it impossible to actually play MP
  • Fixed loading a save then hitting a bookmark causing text about achievements to appear overlapping the scenario description. Fixed the achievement text not appearing after loading a save

User modding

  • Fixed "on_demand = no" in sound causing OnDemand to be turned on rather than off
  • The character flag "ai_flag_never_transfer" will now stop the AI from transferring the given character to one of its vassals (used in vanilla to ensure that if you achieve independence from your liege, your liege's liege won't just transfer you back)

  • Added "show_only_failed_conditions = yes" parameter for triggers. When set, this will cause only failed triggers within this trigger (recursively) to show up in the tooltip. Especially useful when you have a lot of edge cases you need to handle, but which are only rarely relevant to the player

  • Fixed event targets not working in the "culture" effect

Database

  • Added roughly 100 historical characters to the history of Yemen during the 11th and 12th century. Arwa Sulayhid is now a playable ruler of Yemen.

  • Added missing death text for the Kowtow Travels trait

  • Sardinia and Corsica are now assigned to the correct pentarch
  • The Empire of Italy now requires the Kingdom of Sardinia and Corsica
  • Traveling the passages of time and death will no longer allow souls of war offenders to cheat the injustices they caused their enemies. (Historical wars in 867 should now work when traversing history backwards)
  • Winning an invasion of China will now set their status to Stable, unless they are in a Golden Age
  • Fixed a problem where a character could end up with multiple tributary suzerains at the start of the game.
  • The Chinese Emperor will no longer accept that you send severely injured Concubines, Eunuchs, Commanders, or Physicians to serve them
  • Fixed so that adopting Chinese Imperialism keeps the laws from your previous title
  • Fixed so that the cool-down for employing a smith is removed if the first thing you decide is to change your mind about the whole endeavor

AI Improvements

  • Told the AI that it a bad idea to recruit retinues if the place where they spawned has enemy troops in it
  • Gave the AI a few pointers on the existence of ships when it comes to getting its troops back home after a war
  • The AI now realizes that simply pretending enemy holy orders don't exist doesn't actually help it win wars
  • The AI no longer briefly forgets about one of its armies, and thus decides to merge some armies together, leading to it then deciding they need to be split, forgetting about one of them once more, starting the cycle all over again
  • The AI will no longer run in circles trying to attach to someone of lower tier, being constantly told "no, you can't do that". We didn't actually make the AI any smarter in this regard; we just removed the tier restriction on attaching

  • Told the AI for landless characters that during a war, the war goal is actually a lot more important than whatever provinces it happens to have occupied
  • Informed the AI that it is a bad idea to abandon a siege you control just because there's enough other people besieging it.

  • Told the AI it is a decent idea to merge its armies even if there's no enemies around to fight, assuming that has no real risk of causing supply issues

  • The AI no longer gets horribly confused when armies it is ordered to attach to merge with another army
