This sticky contains patch notes for hotfixes to the Beta game version that incremented the game version as well as those that did not increment the game version / introduce a new branch to Steam (or other platforms). These types of updates are sometimes necessary to address critical issues without going through additional certification processes that may cause a delay. They will usually be reserved for urgent Singleplayer and Multiplayer stability fixes or logging adjustments that provide us with additional information on such issues.

This will happen more commonly on active Beta branches, but may also occur for the current Live/main branch.

Changes
  • Settlement Garrison Balance Adjustments
    • Improved the army AI garrison donation formula. Parties will now donate troops to newly conquered towns and castles based on their strength ratio in the army. This will result in newly conquered settlements having more garrison troops.
    • Newly conquered settlements will now instantly get militia based on the Daily Militia Expected Change with a minimum number of 30 units.
    • Reduced the settlement defender simulation advantage by 30%.
    • Improved the settlement tooltip to show the correct values of the army and party troop counts.
  • Troop AI Improvements
    • Troops and characters with higher fighting skill levels now fight notably better than lower-level troops. This was achieved by expanding the available AI’s ability range in order to better map the AI troops’ given fighting skills to the AI fighting level used by the troops.
    • AI tournament participants now become progressively better at fighting by making smarter decisions in noninitial rounds. Fights will therefore become increasingly more challenging as the rounds progress, making winning them meaningfully more difficult.
  • The siege engine redeployment process will now take some time like the initial construction (shorter).
  • Added a version check that prevents loading of saves that were made with newer versions of the game.
  • The “Prodigal Son” issue quest now gets canceled if you join a new faction that is at war with the quest giver’s faction.
  • Optimized performance of the ranged agents’ aiming routine.
  • Reduced memory usage in bigger scenes.

Multiplayer​

  • Fixed a bug that prevented some perk effects from being applied.
  • Fixed the incorrect reload speed value of "Replenished" and weapon damage bonus of "Strong Arm" perks according to their descriptions.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the map version on the Map Downloader popup from being correctly displayed, leading to false warnings.
  • Fixed a bug that corrupted the terrain visuals when re-downloading a scene with the Map Downloader.
  • Fixed a bug that caused spectators to be listed as team members on the HUD.
Changes
  • Increased dismount resistances of cavalry classes:
    • Light Cavalry: Increased from 50 to 75
    • Heavy Cavalry: Increased from 70 to 85
    • Horse Archers: Increased from 70 to 80
  • Only the following weapons now have the ability to dismount players:
    • All two-handed axes (including alternative usage axes)
    • All two-handed maces
    • Glaive (heavy and normal) and Longer Menavlion
  • Swapped the Sturgia Heavy Cavalry (Druzhinnik) "Long Axe and Shield" perk with "Unbreakable". The new perk features are:
    • Stronger shield
    • 15% Melee and Ranged damage reduction
  • Imperial Heavy Axe:
    • Decreased damage from 88 to 82
    • Decreased length from 82 to 69 (reverted v1.2.4 change)
  • Updated the matchmaking rules to support populating existing games to full capacity during the warmup phase.
  • Added the ability to mark custom servers as favorites.
  • Added the ability to set tickrate for dedicated custom servers using the "/tickrate" command line argument or the "set_server_tickrate" console command.
  • Players now need to download all missing maps being played on the server via the Map Downloader before joining.

Both​

Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to cancel the reload animation for bows and throwing weapons.
Changes
  • Introduced further ranged weapon penalties to non-mounted troops when riding. If a troop has 0 riding skill, the below penalties will apply. These are then reduced and eventually removed when a troop reaches 100 or above riding skill.
    • Increased reload speed penalty and weapon readying speed penalty from 20% to 30%.
    • Increased the time needed to achieve maximum accuracy by increasing the penalty from 20% to 30%.
    • Increased the weapon inaccuracy multiplier from 40% to 1500% which will significantly widen the crosshair.
  • Increased the animation speed of getting up after being dismounted. You can now also start blocking at an earlier point while getting up.
  • Updated various localizations and conducted minor text fixes.

Modding​

  • Fixed a crash that occurred on the resource browser.
  • World Map Moddability
    • Removed the hardcoded texture (main_map_snow_flowmap) previously required for Dynamic Campaign (weather) Effects (located in the Terrain Property Browser) on the world map. It is now selected from the editor as a regular texture. Modders now no longer have to use the asset override mechanism (by having the same flowmap texture name as the native flowmap texture) to add a snow layer to the world map - instead, it's recommended that you use your own texture with a different name and select it in your custom world map scene.
    • Fixed a bug that prevented modded campaign maps from using high-resolution heightmaps. A low-resolution main_map_physics_heightmap texture is not required for campaign heightmaps and custom worldmaps can now be used without the Aurelian’s MapFix mod if saved as Main_map (as opposed to modded_main_map).
    • Fixed a bug that prevented world map floras from appearing. Previously, you had to enter and exit a mission scene to force the flora to appear.
    • Added modding support for the world map dynamic atmosphere.
    • Added modding support for color grade grid for the world map.
    • Added modding support for the battle scene index grid for the world map.
    • Added visualization sliders to the editor for easier tweaking of the world map snow map.
    • Added a console option to reduce framerate when the editor is not focused.
    • Improved layer editing and visualization in the Editor.
    • Overall bug fixes.
  • Assertions will now be shown in the Editor Console once inside the "Editor Mode".
  • Added bulk shader compilation for mods. It's accessible via the “Compile Shaders” checkbox while publishing the module using the “Publish Module” functionality in the editor. It allows you to compile & ship the unique material shaders in your modules. This prevents long initial mod loading times.
  • Added the ability to define and use your own decals.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented texture move operations.
