Initial Changelog

Latest Changes:

-We changed price colouring to work according to world averages instead of default prices of items. If an item is 30% or more above the world average it is coloured red. If it is 20% or more below the item's world average price it is coloured green.

-Fixed a bug that caused mercenaries to pay tributes or expenses to/for other mercenaries

-Added a fix to remove duplicate kingdom stances that had already been saved.

-Peace barter initialization parameters have been fixed

-Town prices now model purchases made by caravans and other parties while determining supply and demand.

-Fixed an issue where players who created kingdoms had to pay influence cost for decisions even when there were no other clans to overrule.

Previous Beta Hotfixes:


-Fixed the campaign map defender siege engine positions for the level 2 version of Medeni castle. This should resolve crashing for cases where the player initiates a siege against a level 2 version of the castle.

-Fixed an issue that caused corrupted save files to crash the game on load screen.

-Fixed an issue with the final perk of the 1-handed and 2-handed skills.

-Fixed a bug that caused the diplomacy system to have multiple relations between kingdom pairs. This should alleviate some problems with short war and truce periods.

-On average about 30% of towns and 50% of castles were experiencing issues with starvation. To improve this situation, settlements with less food now offer higher prices so caravans distribute food better. Village food production was also increased from 4/8/12 to 5/10/15 and consumption of beer in settlements now gives a bonus to food stores. Furthermore, garrisons grow to a lesser degree if a settlement has fewer or smaller villages. With these changes starvation was reduced to 10% of towns and 20% of castles – which mostly occurs in cases of hostile actions like raids and sieges.

-Influence awards of some policies were adjusted to reduce influence inflation across kingdoms.

-Effects of daily default projects for settlements were reduced.

-Several minor fixes for AI war and peace declarations.


-Fixed an issue that blocked the AI from declaring wars normally. It is now no longer locked to the player entering the diplomacy screen.

-Fixed a bug that allowed your faction to make peace without your vote.

-AI should be more likely to declare peace if the war is taking a long time.


-Fixed an issue that caused several policies to be activated when the player is a mercenary and goes to the kingdom screen for the first time.

-Disabled the "leave kingdom" button in the clan screen for player kings for the time being as it caused crashes after some time.

-Reintroduced a minimum truce period of 20 days for AI kingdoms.

-Fixed an issue that caused players to get stuck when they accepted a peace decision while in a siege event.


-Fixed an issue that caused AI rulers to miscalculate influence cost vs benefit when overriding a popular vote.

-Fixed an issue that caused automated kingdom decisions for mercenary players.

-The influence cost for the ruler to override the popular vote in a kingdom decision is now calculated differently. Players will be able to spend the decision's normal cost for up to 3 points of difference or "votes". They will have to spend the decision's max cost for any additional points of difference. (To elaborate further – the options associated with influence costs in a kingdom decision represent votes. So f.e. in a decision with the costs 10 / 40 / 100, choosing the 100 option amounts to 3 points or votes. If you are a king and want to overrule a popular vote that surpasses the alternative by 5 points / votes, your cost will amount to 100 (for the first 3 votes) plus another 2 x 100 (for the additional points of difference).


-Fixed a rare crash on the campaign map regarding village items.

-Added a fix for the Player's King's Decision.

-The AI now leaves less garrison to settlements with low prosperity. This should improve problems with starvation.
