0.9.3

As I'm sure you know painfully well by now, China is going to take a while. Fear not though, those of us not working on China haven't been idle. We've been tackling a large backlog of QoL changes we've been wanting to do for a while, along with making a large push to get our bug tracker down. Highlights from this patch include reworked companies, a new start game UI, some love for Italy and the long awaited Custom Country Paths, not to mention the many other smaller changes and fixes. Enjoy!

  • Added new splash screen on game start
  • Changed companies from Design to Production, fixing a lot of bugs and exploits along the way. They now work in line with how they do in vanilla

  • The AI of the Italian countries should be a bit better overall at taking focuses, and much of the code in the focus trees has been reviewed and updated.

0.9.2

While this patch doesn’t have any new focuses trees, we’re sure you’ll love it all the same. We’ve worked on performance all over, fixed a whole load of bugs and adapted to the music mods to use the new radios added in 1.7, letting you mix and match both our stations and PDX’s music in game. You’ve got no excuse to not use them now!

The KR4 team

Changes

Notable Additions

  • The Fourth Balkan War events have been revised and updated. The Ottoman Empire no longer supports either Bulgaria or the Belgrade Pact in the Fourth Balkan War. Instead, once the war begins, they have a decision to demand Western Thrace and Momchilgrad (a new state, and they now begin with cores on both) from Bulgaria. If Bulgaria refuses, the Ottomans will go to war for it
  • The music mod now makes use of the radio’s mechanic added in 1.7

  • Sweden

GFX

  • New/Redone portraits of: Abbas II (EGY), Ferdinand I (BUL), Jack Reed (CSA), Adna Chaffee (USA), Malin Craig (USA), Manuel Quezon (PHI), Prince Henry (AST), Prince George (AST), Edward VIII (CAN, DEH, etc.), Blanton C. Winship (PRI), Santiago Iglesias Pantín (PRI), Wilhelm Marschall (GER), Infante Juan de Borbon (SPR)
  • Added a couple new focus icons to the Swiss focus tree
  • Iceland gets a few new idea icons
  • Redone a significant number of focus icons all over the mod

  • Added new versions for Le Chant du Depart and The Maple Leaf Forever
  • Added Avante! for Integralist Brazil
  • Lowered the volume to Waltzing Matilda

Miscellaneous

  • Bulgaria’s decisions have been revised so they are visible from the start, with their conditions updated. They can no longer use their decisions to demand Adrianople/Constantinople or to attack Serbia/Romania/Greece if they are in a faction and not its leader. The AI will hold off on joining a faction if it believes it can still pursue these decisions
  • Added some proper AI coding so Bulgaria won’t start losing wars as readily.
  • Bulgaria now has proper peace events for both its potential wars against the Ottomans, rather than just the war for Adrianople. In both cases they now must actually fight for the states rather than auto-seizing them and requiring the Ottomans to war in order to get them back
  • Brazil and Argentina now both cannot use their war focuses if they are in a faction and not its leader. The AI will hold off joining a faction if they believe they can still pursue those focuses
  • The Greek ‘Sue for Peace’ decision with the Ottomans/Turks now only gives cores/claims prior to Megali being used - it never also gives the Greeks eastern Thrace and/or Constantinople. Megali is required for that.
  • Organized the PLC tree to be less of a scattered mess in the files
  • Australasia now controls Christmas Island and the Cocos Islands
  • Aguinaldo no longer leads the Philippines, instead, Quezon will be president at game start
  • USA progressives once again can be elected, assuming Olson was first elected in the 1936 election
  • Netherlands can now flood itself when attacked
  • The Dutch armoured divisions will now be equipped with high quality Gevechtstanks instead of silly American scrap metal from a different timeline
  • Puerto Rico now has an appointed governor when released by the US, New Party names and party leaders with generic portraits.
  • The US Army has realized it’s the late 1930s and not 1945, and has promptly demoted Eisenhower and Bradley to General, and assigned Malin Craig as Field Marshall, and Adna Chaffee as General. Now the Army debate event promotes either Chaffee or McNair to FM depending on your choice (Choosing the Craig plan means neither is promoted).
  • Changed some early effects in the german black monday events
  • Fixed CSA Second Constitutional Convention localization to better illustrate the AFL vs IWW conflict, Totalists as self perceived centrists in debate
  • Mutualism in CSA Radsoc path replaced with supporting Craft Unions
  • Altered some tooltips in Iceland’s decisions
  • The FOP no longer has Fanny Jabcovsky as Field Marshal. In her stead, Liborio Justo shall be the new Field Marshal
  • Removed cursed Puerto Rican party names and added some Heads of State to the nation, along with a division when released during the 2ACW
  • The birth of a Danish princess will no longer be notable in a republican Denmark
  • Changed Swiss party names to be more historically accurate
  • Adjusted Swiss party popularities
  • National Populist and Socialist Finland don’t join the Reichspakt anymore if the Russians start their foreign focus tree in Europe
  • Submarines can now pass through the Panama canal if it’s neutral
  • The USA begins with the Isolation idea, and the effects of its Great Depression are slightly greater. Also, if the USA pumps out an exceptional number of units (generally only at a player’s hands), CSA and/or AUS will get some extra units to match
  • If Greece goes down the New Expansionism path while in a faction, their current faction leader will consider ejecting them (provided they’re at peace)
  • Added AI code to Balkans countries approached to join Austria's faction through its focuses. If they have cores or claims which are owned by Austria or its subject/allies, they will likely demand those back - except for only Royalist Romania, if Austria intervened in the civil war. Austria cannot accept if there are any owned by non-subject allies, but can otherwise. AI Austria won’t accept returning its cores/claims or those of its primary subjects (Hungary, Bohemia, Illyria, etc.)
  • Added minister death events for Switzerland
  • Rebalanced Japanese political power and stability
  • Added an actual effect to CSA’s Lead the Revolution focus
  • AI code has been added to Balkan countries approached to join Austria’s faction. If the country has any claims/cores owned by Austria, its allies, or its puppets, then the country will likely demand those back before it’ll join. Austria cannot agree if the states are owned by a non-puppet ally, and AI Austria won’t agree if the states are cores/claims of either itself or a “core” subject (like Hungary). The one exception to this is Royalist Romania, which may forgo the demand if Austria used its focus to intervene in the Romanian civil war
  • Logistic company tech upgrades now reduce fuel consumption, as in vanilla
  • Rybinsk water reservoir removed
  • Updated placement of Cholm and Shavli
  • Added synthetic oil bonuses to the CoF and UoB
  • Added minor oil deposits to the CoF and UoB

Fixes

  • Fixed an exploit in the USA Army tree that allowed the player to duplicate the Malin Craig plan buff
  • Fixed an issue where the US factions would steal units from each other if a ceasefire was signed
  • Fixed a significant number of strange outcomes in the Fading Sun event chain for Japan, it is now more robust, able to handle multiple attacking nations (say, Qing and Russia) and doesn’t break in MP any more

Other Fixes

  • Fixed a peace conference bug which was supposed to ensure that certain states were always taken together (like Amazonas and Amazonas Jungle), but instead ensured that they couldn’t be taken together. So no more conference-enforced border gore (on that front, anyhow)
  • The language barrier idea for the Nordic Federation now decreases your research speed instead of increasing it
  • Saudi caliphate event chain now functions properly
  • German AI now properly invades Denmark instead of keeping the war goal for later
  • Fixed Sudwestafrika getting the normal Namibia color when forming Mittelafrika
  • Iceland no longer gets notified about a change in austerity budget if they have ended the program
  • Cod imports from Iceland no longer turn Canadians into rabbits in spring
  • Colombo is now in the right state
  • Trincomalee now has its port back
  • Fixed an exploit letting Finland declare Greater Finland without actually fulfilling the Heimosodat
  • Purged generals after the Swedish coup will now no longer be selectable as ideas
  • Fixed some typos in Norwegian event loc
  • Fixed the Internal minister election event for Denmark
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent Thorvald Stauning’s portrait from working properly in a republican Denmark
  • An event chain regarding a French writer leaving from Nat.Fra. to the Commune will now work correctly (It used to fire all the chain just for NatFra, even if the writer left)
  • Fixed the USA inspire decisions each spawning one less unit than they should have been
  • USA’s coalition party now falls apart after the end of the civil war
  • One can no longer send weapons to PSA or AUS while at war with them
  • CSA now properly gets Upstate New York in the ACW path where Long has been compromised with
  • Poland no longer has a unit sitting in northern Ukraine at game start.
  • Canada no longer declares war on the West Indies for going syndicalist unless they are still the faction leader
  • Fixed puppet Canada still giving the ISAC joining event
  • Panama Canal unit now properly deletes for USA before being respawned in Washington
  • CSA’s Lead the Revolution focus now has an actual effect
  • Added proper bypass to Union of Britain’s Australasian Comrades focus
  • Moved the big naval base in northern Union of Britain to Scapa Flow instead of the northern tip of Scotland
  • Polish demand for Chelm event now gives Chelm state instead of Brest
  • Fixed several broken tooltips relating to Scandinavia

0.9.1

Changes

Notable Additions

  • There have been a couple of significant changes to the way the American Civil War works once again, primarily motivated by the feedback we got after the last release. Short of future bug fixes, this should be the current state it remains for at a while
  • The four post-election focuses stemming from The Old Order Prevails have had their effects changed up a bit
  • The Iron Fist is now the only focus which offers a choice of assassinating Long or Reed, as was before
  • The Velvet Glove allows Olson a chance to peacefully accommodate the SPA, so the CSA will not rise
  • Austerity Through the Storm allows Garner a chance to peacefully accommodate the AFP, so the AUS will not rise
  • Direct Economic Intervention cannot eliminate a faction, but is now the only focus which can reduce the influence of both the AFP and the SPA
  • The West Coast no longer joins the AUS or the CSA in the assassination or accommodation versions of the war. Instead, both of these versions play a little differently, offering either extra initial swing states, extra starting units, and different starting bonuses. In the accommodation version, the AUS or CSA has six months to get the USA to 40% surrender or else it will suffer severe maluses for the rest of the war
  • Added a mechanic where Iceland can slowly build up a resistance to English rule and jump ship to the Entente if they can wear down the English enough

Music Mod

  • Added songs for Iceland
  • Reconfigured the Nordic songs so that some may play for the Nordic Federation

Miscellaneous

  • PSA generals no longer defect to CSA/AUS in the assassination chains
  • Removed the option for the USA to “ask” Canada to occupy New England anyhow, if they’d chosen not to. It was meant to be there for a player who wanted New England to appear in their game, but it seems all it really did was confuse USA players as to the nature of Canada’s New England occupation
  • Militia can no longer be recruited in New York or New Jersey prior to the states having their initial control determined (or when the war begins, in the instance where the CSA doesn’t exist)
  • Uprising events now cannot occur in the ACW until at least two or three months have passed (two months for the “Inspire” decisions, three months for the bigger uprisings)
  • Pedro Del Valle added to the AUS Military, complete with a general description
  • The decision to Demand New England from Canada now also works if Canada owns the New England states directly
  • The decision to Demand Alaska from Canada now also works if Canada just owns Attu Island, instead of just Alaska state
  • Changed some of the populations, industry and infrastructure in Eastern Europe, particularly Galicia
  • All of the state file names now use their anglicised in game names
  • Added Trial events for the USA, AUS and PSA to pardon other factions' generals

Fixes

Notable Fixes

  • Factors now weight properly in the passing/failing of the Garner-Wagner Bill
  • AUS now properly gets its extra units, for when the AFP is strong enough to warrant them
  • Removed naval infrastructure due to bugs and lack of usage

Other Fixes

  • Swapped the descriptions for Iceland subsidizing the rural versus urban population
  • Iceland now asks Denmark for a bailout instead of just taking the money
  • In the event that Iceland stays super loyal to ENG, the cod war ends in English victory instead of nothing happening
  • The icons of the 1936 elections focuses for Sweden will no longer turn into a question mark while the focus is bypassable
  • The peaceful diplomatic tree of Finland will no longer be blocked off half-way if you took Karelia earlier
  • Finland can no longer cause an early Weltkrieg by joining the Reichspakt before the Russian civil war has been completed
  • Finland now only gets the event to occupy Karelia when the civil war has actually started and not just once the Soviets have spawned in (as the situation between Russia and the Soviets can still be resolved peacefully).
  • The Dutch government in exile will no longer release Suriname
  • Carl August Ehrensvärd’s portrait now works
  • Huey Long no longer condemns the federal government for killing himself
  • AI Brazil and Argentina now have a far lower chance of starting wars between the major game factions
  • Austria can no longer invite syndicalist Balkan nations into its faction
  • Fixed the spawning of rebel militia units in the ACW’s “Inspire” decisions causing control over provinces in that state to flip
  • When the USA loses cores on Minnesota or New York/New Jersey after retaining control over them, they are now informed of the fact via a tooltip in the event
  • The Just Good Business focus for Germany-in-Exile now drops it out of the Entente, so the wargoal can be used
  • The “Work with Allies” decisions for USA are now a bit more restrictive in their scope, so the list presented isn’t quite as long

0.9 - 'Aurora Borealis'

A surprise update! While China is coming along nicely, it is a way off yet and we thought you could use a treat. Thanks to the Nordic team we are able to bring you this lovely update you didn’t even know was coming. It brings revamped focus trees to all Nordic nations, more changes to the ACW, some additional polish and bug fixes as well as some more interesting changes to Political Power. I can already see some questions incoming, so I’ve stickied a comment with our answers, so check there before posting your questions. That all said, we hope you enjoy the new content!

Changes

Notable Additions

  • Changed Base Political Power gain to 1.5 (from 1)
  • Changed maximum Political Power saved to 2000 (from 400)
  • Completely rebalanced ship speed calculation (now it use flat modifiers instead of percentage)
  • Added the releasable tags of Jamaica(JAM), Trinidad & Tobago(TRI), Guyana(GUY), and Suriname(SUR)
  • Map Changes in Eastern Europe
  • A number of changes to how the American Civil War plays out:
  • A series of focuses have been added to the USA, intended for use before the civil war breaks out. These revolve around the government’s attempt to address the economic crisis, and - after the election - the approach the new government takes to the political crisis. The ultimate effect of these are to 1) determine the overall strength of the AFP and SPA when the war starts, and 2) influence which states remain under USA control and which ones rebel (it is no longer pre-determined).
  • The civil war can no longer be avoided, though paths exist (no longer just on the Olson route) which allow either Reed or Long to be assassinated, which prevents either the CSA or AUS from rising respectively.
  • An option has been made for a post-ACW USA which returns to democracy to negotiate with the PSA for a peaceful reunion.

0.8.3a

A tiny update to fix a typo in the version name...how embarrassing...

Changes

  • Learned how to spell 'Truce'

0.8.3 - 'Christmas Truce'

What a year hey? Three major releases as well as many smaller patches; we have been busy. Sadly the Caribbean rework is still not finished but it didn’t feel right to leave you without a final update for 2018 so instead we are doing another hotifx. This patches brings a total overhaul of all the American code, both fixing bugs but also adding new features, not to mention plenty of tweaks and fixes for other nations, including squashing an annoying CTD. We hope you have a happy new year!

Changes

Notable Additions

  • Overhauled how Canada intervenes into the American Civil War in order to make it easier to balance and slightly more sensible:
  • Canada now cannot go to war against the CSA during the ACW unless either Canada has an authoritarian government or Mexico has intervened on the CSA’s side. Its decision to attack the CSA can still always be used after the CSA has won.
  • If Canada doesn't grab American territory, its support to an ACW faction will consist of volunteers and equipment, as well as a modifier to help their war efforts. Should their supported faction win, it’s much more likely they’ll join the Entente.
  • If Canada doesn't grab New England, the USA will get some units there. A player USA can opt to reverse Canada's decision so they grab it anyway.
  • Canada now has some additional decisions to prepare for possible war with the CSA.
  • Greatly reduced the performance impact of state renaming
  • Did an extensive bug-fixing pass on the event, decision, and national focus files for the USA, CSA, AUS and PSA, so they should be less buggy. The primary/election events in particular have been overhauled, and flavour events now fire on a schedule - rather than being clumped together after 24 months - so you should actually see them in an average playthrough.
  • Rewritten 70% of CSA’s descriptions, 20% of AUS’s, 10% of USA’s. Numerous changes to pre and post-civil war events. Pre-war CSA militia now called “Red Guard”, IWW fights AFL during and after revolution, Huey’s nepotism leads to deaths, Radsoc CSA believes in Business Unionism, Vanguardists now value Craft Unions and call themselves political centrists, Long and Reed both deadlier during pre-civil war era, CSA social revolution changed.
  • New mechanic for CSA Constitutional Convention to determine Interim president elections (so the path is determined by the choices in the convention, not solely by who is the interim president, chosen in the very last event).
  • Both the Business Plot path and the Pelley path for AUS have been revamped, giving them a chain of events post-assumption of power where they must either succeed (at a price) or they’ll lose power once again. Some work has been done on the flavor events for both.

Reworked/expanded focus trees of:

  • Uruguay
  • USA

Added Events to:

  • American Union State
  • Combined Syndicates of America
  • New England
  • Uruguay

GFX

  • Added the following to the CSA: New version of John Brown’s body sung by Paul Robeson, The Ludlow Massacre

  • Removed the following from Greece: Mavra Korakia (It mentions Stalin and Fascism, and neither is relevant in the KRTL)
  • Added the following to Hungary: Attila Induló, Honved Banda Szol a Stefanian!

Miscellaneous

  • Until the civil war is over, the ACW countries will be known by an adjective other than just "American"
  • The ceasefire between the PSA and the last ACW country has variable borders, depending on how far PSA has pushed; its name is either “Rocky Mountain Ceasefire”, “Great Plains Ceasefire”, or “Mississippi Ceasefire” depending on roughly where the border is drawn
  • AUS now has the option as to whether or not they retain the AUS flag and name - so long as they remain on the Huey Long path. The option appears once they’ve re-taken the entire continental USA. Pelley will always switch to the Commonwealth flag and name, and the Business Plot path will always switch to the USA flag and name
  • New England once again starts as a Canadian puppet. It has a focus to ask for home rule. If home rule is refused, it receives a decision to outright declare independence later - removing it from the Entente as well - which Canada can refuse, meaning war. Legitimacy is now tracked for New England as in how legitimate a government it is viewed, as opposed to a Canadian stand-in
  • New England no longer claims to be the "last American democracy". It has a decision (costing legitimacy) to claim that mantle if PSA doesn't exist and USA either doesn't exist or is a dictatorship. Once it claims the "last American democracy" mantle, New England gets claims on the rest of America and may use a decision to attack other ACW nations
  • Added a decision for USA/PSA/AUS to peacefully reunite with New England. If New England has insufficient legitimacy, they cannot refuse (and a player New England will switch to the new owner). If they agree, they must first ask Canada (if they’re in their faction), who can agree, refuse, or demand the new owner join the Entente. Note that if New England is still a Canadian puppet, the country negotiates directly with Canada, as before
  • Canada has the "Yankee Rebellion" events restored, should they retain direct control over New England. Once order has been restored in owned New England states, Canada receives decisions to get resources and some manpower from the region (to make this path a bit more valuable, now that the region cannot be cored)
  • Decisions to support a faction in the ACW now won't appear except for syndicalist countries, majors, and countries in North/South America
  • Rebuilding decisions for the ACW countries now remove the cores of the other ACW factions
  • Players will no longer switch to CSA/AUS/PSA and discover the AI has started a focus for them
  • Removed option for Liberia to become puppet of Mittelafrika or National France after the ACW begins - they can only go free or stay loyal
  • Added the West Mongolia state
  • PER now starts the game called Persia, and can change their name to Iran via decision after 1937. Ideologies other than Paternal Autocrat will do this under the AI
  • Added multiple companies to Persia
  • The Kaiserreich team now officially recognizes China’s claim to Kashmir
  • Several smaller map changes to Xinjiang
  • Removed one of the impassables between Tibet and Bhutan so Tibet can access its claimed territory
  • Overhauled Mexico’s internal wars to use variables letting you see the progress
  • Mexico now gets fewer factories from focuses
  • Ethiopia’s Eritrean rebellion now occurs once the Somalian War starts if they have been taxed but not integrated
  • Mexico now has a lighter green colour
  • The Carlists can once again assassinate Juan, allowing Jaime III to come into power

Romanian and Bulgarian populations have been rebalanced, particularly Dobrogea

  • Bulgaria now starts on Extensive Conscription
  • Bulgaria’s Mobilise the Reserves idea is now reduced to 1.5% conscription and -10% training time initially, with the final idea giving 3.5%
  • Mexico can no longer take focuses when capitulated
  • Made the Cristero War no longer trigger from non-Calles Laws events
  • Removed building slots added with air bases for Mexico
  • Gave a civ to Yucatan and gave Mexico a dockyard at start
  • First focuses in the socialist democracy trees for Mexico now give 5% popularity and 100pp
  • Lowering Mexican doctrine bonuses
  • American Union State Commonwealth flavor events now match the bleakness of their descriptions
  • South Africa now gets cores on Rhodesia and Bechuanaland in their Federation path
  • Paramount chief forces for South Africa are now only added to the Dominion side if the civil war occurs, the focus itself now just adds stability and PP
  • South Africa decision added to demobilize the Askari if native service focus is later taken. This removes the template and adds manpower. Most locked templates added during the SAF civil war are now removed afterwards
  • When the Canadian PM dies another HoG minister is put in his place
  • If an ACW country is attacked post-civil war, after it has demobilised and while it is still in recovery, it will recall up to 20 infantry units for the duration of the war
  • Canada's Bill C7 event now adds proper building slots as well as factories
  • The Belgrade Pact now no longer insta-surrenders if Serbia is capitulated - Ottomans, Romania, and Greece are treated as majors during any war where Serbia is their faction leader
  • AI Italy, Poland, Serbia, and Romania no longer throw themselves into suicide wars against Austria - they wait for Austria to be vulnerable or for one of the other countries to be waiting on its attack focus (and thus expected to join in)
  • Germany and the Reichspakt now once again ignore Portugal if they go to war during the border war with Mittelafrika
  • Crete is now owned by Greece at gamestart
  • Astrakhan state was enlarged and is now owned by Russia at gamestart
  • Russia should have a harder time in the early game thanks to stronger debuffs, also the *Russian AI no longer cheats
  • Added a whole lot of VPs to Russia and Eastern Europe
  • Added a namelist for the Argentine army, so you can now have immersive division names.
  • Added Army general descriptions for Mexico, New England, Hawaii, Pacific States of America, American Union State, Combined Syndicates of America.
  • Added some Army General descriptions for the United States of America.
  • Removed Joseph Beyrle from the CSA (he was 13 in 1936, and 14 at the start of the civil war).
  • Demoted Chennault to Brigadier General and promoted Devers to Field Marshall.
  • Moved Lemuel Shepherd from the AUS to New England (He was doing a Marine course in Rhode Island in 1937).
  • Resources focuses for Canada now unlock decisions instead. The polymer focus for Canada no longer adds rubber in Ontario - instead it provides tech and grants a free synth factory instead.
  • New Admiral for BHC, Kaylani Sen.
  • Quentin Roosevelt II and Quentin Roosevelt are now two different men and both can be elected.

Incomplete Content

  • The Caribbean rework is still not ready sadly, it will be included in a later patch though still no ETA for that

0.7.0a

Small hotfix to fix a bug in Insulindia, save game compatible.

Changes

  • Fixed a bug in the ‘Defend Java and Sumatra’ mission that in return prevented the peace deal from firing

0.7 - 'El Condor Pasa'

And on time as well! This patch brings the overhaul of South America, the Indonesian rework and a special treat; the Greek rework! We know you’ll like this one. Also coming in this patch is several overhauls of several key systems, polishing and finishing work started in 0.6, notably stability. Finally, it of course has the usual splattering of bug fixes and tweaks, we hope you enjoy!

Changes

Notable Additions

  • Full compatibility with 1.5.4
  • The focuses for Canada to intervene in the ACW have been moved to decisions. As a side-effect, you should see Canadian intervention occur a lot more often now
  • The AI production system has been completely overhauled. You should now see the AI building a wider variety of units and do so more sensibly. Most notably the AI will now build tanks and motorized units
  • The peace conference system has been completely overhauled. While this still isn’t perfect (it’s a finicky system), you should see a lot fewer bizarre results when a war ends in a regular peace conference rather than by event
  • Note: there’s still a vanilla bug which affects any country which is in more than two separate wars - when it capitulates, not all enemy countries get invited to the peace conference. We haven’t been able to fix this one sadly
  • The annexation events have now been moved to decisions - or, more precisely, they’ve been moved to missions. Once they become active, you have 60 days to select the decision or else the game assumes you are occupying the territory permanently and applies the penalty
  • Stability has been totally overhauled, now fully utilizes the new stability counter rather than being a fusion of the old and new systems
  • Party popularity totally overhauled, now based around the new counter added to the UI
  • Garrison units have been removed, the AI could never use them right and balancing them was near impossible

0.6 - ‘Garibaldi's Nightmare’

It’s been a while hasn’t it? We have been thoroughly enjoying Waking the Tiger and all the new tools it has brought us; I’m sure you will enjoy what we have done with them. Not only that, but this patch also brings the Italian and Middle East reworks which will hopefully spice up gameplay in those areas, not to mention new content to many other nations all over the world. Waking the Tiger is not required for this patch, for more information see the ingame starting events. While 1.5 ‘Cornflakes’ is very exciting it has also brought with it many things that need changing so bugs are to be expected, please be patient with us and report on the github with as much detail as possible. Finally, thank you for bearing with us for what has been a very, very long wait. We promise it was worth it!

  • The German and associated ME rework was sadly not able to be completed fully in to, some of the preliminary work is in, but expect the full rework to follow soon.

Fixes

Notable Fixes

  • Over 100 rare CTD’s fixed
  • Many of these would be more common in multiplayer games that lasted into the 1940’s, so may have been the cause of the issues there
  • Fixed map errors in southern Canada, Florida, Finland, Hungary and the Balkans that caused the AI and frontlines to do funky things
  • Fixed a major bug in our AI peace conference code that impacted a lot of nations but notably led Austria to only annex Greece, only for the Balkan nations to declare war upon them again. No more 14th Balkan War!
  • Significant bugs that were preventing vital Mittelafrika events firing have been fixed
  • Significant bugs caused by duplicate events fixed in the Russia-Japan-Mongolia events
  • The German capitulation event chain has been completely re-written. Among the notable effects: occupied states by non-faction members will be retained after the capitulation, so long as they connect to either their home territory or the coast. German troops will no longer remain indefinitely in Germany. Territory occupied in Mittelafrika and AOG will be retained in much the same manner as in Germany, and some additional logic has been added to the exchange of territories throughout.
  • An issue regarding units sitting around in former enemy territory after a white peace (it’s a vanilla issue, but one Paradox hasn’t fixed yet) meant instituting a system where the AI can get military access for 30 days to countries it doesn’t have access to. This gets the units moving, so if you notice the access happening that’s why. It is indeed removed after 30 days, however.
  • Several 1000 errors in minister files have been fixed, everything from wrong ideologies to totally missing effects

  • If Germany dislikes women’s rights, France now dislikes Germany instead of the other way around
  • The Bharatiya moderates winning the election is no longer overshadowed by the fact that Gandhi exists
  • Fixed backwards logic on the Russian focus for declaring war on Japan - it no longer requires Japan NOT to own the Japanese islands for Russia to attack them

  • The Swiss idea “Memories of Geneva” can now actually be removed
  • Generals are now transferred between countries in the South African and Spanish civil wars, rather than deleted and re-created, so gained levels and traits are no longer lost.
  • Fixed an issue involving a Fengtian general’s defection, thanks to new Cornflakes mechanics.
  • If Germany has made a deal with Canada to return British land, they will consider doing so before they decide whether to release British puppets. The return code now takes into account Scottish and Welsh land, which might not have British cores by this point.
  • The Canadian decision to restore the UK now allows for Canadian puppets to own the land and automatically takes them into account. The code for GBR release has been cleaned up and some bugs with it fixed.
  • Fixed some instances where New England could be released with territory not belonging to the releasing country.

We are hoping this will be the last patch for 0.5, but we will keep watching and if any issues do arise we will of course issue a fix.

0.5.2 - 'Second Strike'

That being said, the 0.5.1 hotfix seems to have fixed nearly all the issues, so we are almost proud to give you a slightly smaller hotfix. Along with many bug fixes, there are also several quality of life changes; the Union of Britain will no longer take Devolution until WKII is over, the nerfs to industrial tech have been mostly reverted, puppets will take industry focuses and the AI will no longer drown in occupation policy costs. These things aren’t as exciting as new focus tress, but nevertheless, we hope you will enjoy these changes.

We have also reduced the increase to factory cost to a quarter of what it was in 0.5. As seems to be our modus operandi, we added new CTD's even as we fixed dozens, but thanks to your bug reports they have been far easier to find than last time, though as always, I doubt this will be the only hotfix we need.

The Kaiserreich team are proud to present alpha 0.5 ‘Heia Safari’. Been a long wait hasn’t it? We are very excited to bring you the Africa rework, and encourage you to step out of Europe and play somewhere new, we promise you won’t regret it.

P.S. I’ve put details on our optimisation process and balance process as well as some thoughts on the topic at the bottom so skip to the end if that is your cup of tea, think of it like a mini dev diary

P.P.S. If you are interested in helping make Kaiserreich the best it can be, head to our discord (https://discord.gg/013cqzfpWMRLqnvHr) and check the pinned messages in welcome_room

So let's talk performance first.

Rather than testing in absolutes (it takes 21 minutes for a year to go by compared to 17 in vanilla for example) we test in percentage of vanilla speed. The last patch, 0.4.8 ran at 68% of vanilla speed. In early August we ran tests on our dev build and found speed had crashed down to 45% of vanilla. We had to, painfully, tear out our own content and go back over existing code to optimise it to bring this back up. Cutting code is never fun, and our AI team lost will over half of their work. Fortunately it wasn’t in vain, and this patch runs at about 77% of vanilla speed. That’s right, it is 11% faster than last patch even after all the extra content we have added.

DISCLAIMER: Your mileage my vary of course, every system is different, every game is different, and we can’t test after every change we make. We take as much care as we can with our testing, but we are limited in both time (we have real lives you know?) and resources (no money :-( ) so take these numbers as illustrations more than abosutles.

And balance.

Since last patch we have been collecting a lot of data from our wonderful beta testers, thank you to all of you who have helped us past and present. We have also reached out to multiplayer groups as well as continuing to have our own in house games. This has given us a lot of information which we are using as best we can. Also if you happen to be part of a large KR multiplayer group that does regular games, please get in touch with me, I’d love to get some feedback from you.

But balancing Kaiserreich is a nightmarish task; totally asymmetrical gameplay, large amounts of randomness, huge interlocking systems, AI micro control, AI macro control, massive amounts of content produced at different times by different people sometimes for totally different games. Some of the code was written by people who have not only left the team, but are completely out of contact. A while ago we said that one of out event chains for Austria was as long as the entire Russian file in vanilla. That wasn’t a lie, but it isn’t a good thing. Maintaining that kind of code is difficult, and performance and balance wise it is a disaster waiting to happen.

But enough whining, what have we done? We have identified three key areas that we are going to work on. First, the start of the Second Weltkrieg, who is able to start the war and when is very important, it is meant to be the defining event after all. So we are working to expand, remove or tweak the starting event chains and focuses for the war to ensure it starts when it should, and offers up a good fight. Second, we are taking a look at focus length, and reduced the length of many focuses in order to improve balance. A 70 day focus is 70 political power spent, and the rewards you get from it need to reflect that. Finally, we are cutting some of the more broken content until we figure out what to do with it, highlights include Qing getting 3x50% boosts to Nuclear tech and Ireland being able to mobilise over 40% of its population. Some of these changes are in this patch, the rest will be coming soon after.

DISCLAIMER: Balancing is an ongoing effort, and if I had to guess I would say we are less than 10% of the way to a balanced game. And that is if we will ever get there, all the new content is working against us giving us more variables and more code to look over. But we are trying, and if you do find game breaking exploits please get in content with me.


We hope you enjoy playing Kaiserreich 0.5 ‘Heia Safari’ as much as we did making it!

We have decided to go against our usual policy, and ship the incomplete Japanese rework rather than waiting for it to be finished. Japan has been unmaintained for several months now, and thus we believe that however buggy the unfinished rework is, it can only be better than the live version. The rest of the rework, foreign policy in particular, will be in at a later date, until then bug reports are even more appreciated than normal.
