UI

Moving in formation speed limits were not applied properly, they have been fixed and speeds were reduced overall, This is especially noticeable in shield wall, circle and square arrangements.

When troops with ranged weapons were given the charge order they didn't approach the enemy if there was a friend in the way. This was fixed. Moving sideways to try to see enemies past friends was also added, making giving the charge order without telling troops to hold fire much more effective.

Due to an error in updating the target agent after their target was killed and they moved back a few steps, ranged troops tended to face away from the enemy. This was fixed.

Fixed a bug that caused formations to fidget about when trying to hold a defensive position.

Implemented a new system that calculates troop power based on context. Removed cavalry troop simulation bonuses for sieges.

Fixed a bug that caused the player to heal immediately just by waiting on the map.

Clan and Party

Bandit parties which were close to a hideout were attacking other stronger parties because they assumed that parties inside the hideout would help them. However, that is not the case. They will no longer make this assumption.

Fixed a bug that leaves the main hero's spouse in the main party in a fugitive state.

Enabled AI marriages to occur over time.

All workshops are a bit more profitable now.

Item Modifiers Update:

While modifiers worked mostly as intended for armours, they did not work correctly for weapons(stats of weapons were not affected by them), that's fixed.

Not all items had the correct modifiers associated with them, that's fixed.

Modifiers now affect stack count correctly("large bag of…" works).

Lame Horse feature was implemented:

When your horse "goes down" in a mission there is a chance that it will get the Lame modifier, which will affect the stats of it.

Players can now forfeit board games on the enemy’s turn.

Improved the replacement of invalid or deleted items with trash items. This may help some corrupted saves and should make it less likely for corruptions of this nature to occur.

Multiplayer

Please Note: Multiplayer servers will be opened for the beta branch to enable you to test the changes below. They will open tomorrow (Friday) around 11 am UTC and will remain open over the weekend.

Design & Balance

Combat

Bows, Crossbows and all Throwing Weapons' readying/aiming duration and patterns are now related to weapon speed (aiming used to be standard for all ranged weapons).

-The faster the weapon is, the faster it readies up, the smaller the initial crosshair, the faster it gets accurate and the longer it holds max accuracy.

-Minor adjustments will be made after reviewing performance.

New Perk for bows and crossbows:

-Faster Release – Grants faster-travelling projectiles to increase the effective range of Bows and Crossbows. Does not increase the damage value.

UI

Changes

Mission Order Radial:

The order UI has been changed and now has radial buttons. This is implemented mostly for gamepad usability since previously, that UI implementation was unusable with gamepads. Because of this, some orders had to be moved. F1 and F2 orders are unaffected but F3-F7 orders are now under a list, F3 (like F1 and F2). We're open to feedback about this change. So let us know what you think!

UI now supports other language characters that are not included in the selected game language:

Previously characters in other languages would show up as block characters. e.g if your game language was English and someone typed in Japanese in the MP chat, the English player would see those characters as block characters. Now they show up as the correct characters.

Performance

Optimisation made for agent spawning, improving the initialisation of battles and reinforcement phases.

Optimisations made on inverse kinematics by reducing unnecessary usage in the animation system, slightly improving the overall performance.

Combat

Fixed a scenario for crush through where the attacker could deal full damage to the opponent.

Troop movement speeds when moving in arrangement had been reduced noticeably in the previous update, according to feedback and testing, this reduction has been made less severe for line arrangement.

Modding

Fixes for crashes when using road_instance script for river sculpting.

Check for errors functionality in editor also checks the physics objects of the mesh bended entities.

A new functionality added to the editor for re-baking the selected GI probes.
