Thanks, TaleWorlds.
But will the companion get a family or will it only him in the new clan?

Edit:
Tested it myself and they get two members for their clan.

Edit2:
I have checked the culture of my new vassal clan and there are listed as a Sturgia clan, but I have made a Empire companion Clan Leader.
The clan should be Empire, not Sturgia.
Why there are a Sturgia clan?
Because I have granted them a Sturgia Castle, the clan culture should be set by the culture of the companion.

I guess we still get to to choose to marry him / her.
That would probably fix the gigantic number of children I have that are useless right now.

But I guess they can marry on their own just like any other nobles.
Since they get the noble status.

This will be fun to test out, but already see an issue with when the player wants to a take new fief to make a new clan (from companions) but is unable to own the fief do to "the game"'s election system and forced to give fiefs to already existing clans.

Ok I had no idea they would push this feature before Battle Terrain System, not that I'm complaining at all but I'll stop procrastinating and make a proper suggestion regarding my main grievance about the game right now and the heir module so to say ( like I said it is around the gigantic number of children I have on my clan that are useless as hell )

I feel like few people are on a that point of that game to have fully grown children ( +18yr old) so I guess I'll make a proper thread on the suggestion section.
I can't believe I'm the only one bored by that ( I have yet to read someone complaining about this right here ).


As always, that's a very nice work let's see how it comes in game, good job. Still waiting for BTS tho ( not the K-Pop one hopefully, God forbid me )

WOW SUCH A BIG PROBLEM AIN'T IT? It almost feels like the ruling clan is not a constant option on settlement elections. Sacrifice a bit of you influence boi
 
Not sure if I understand it correctly, would you like to explain me like I'm five ? :grin:
  • A system that approximates local superiority has now been implemented.
    • This helps AI agents to distinguish a nearby lone enemy that they can kill from a group of enemies. They can then choose to fight or move towards their assigned tactical position in hopes of better odds.
    • A minor random element was also introduced that slightly influences decision scores.
What I understand is that now enemies will not cross each other without fighting just because they were ordered to go to a specific position.
We see that during siege for exemple, when you are alone on the wall and a group of enemy just pass aside you just like if you were not existing.
Now they will evaluate the odds and attack you (or any other lone ennemy).
Though I may be wrong and also I'm wondering about about the "minor random element"...

Underwhelming? It's a solid update for such a short period since the last one!
yup, i prefer these smallish updates focusing in one or two features at a time but releasing in a few weeks than waiting more than 1-2 months for one a bit bigger like they were doing previously.
 
下雨天什么时候能加进来?什么时候体积云能加进去?天空的月亮和星星什么能做的再认真一些,而不是一张破贴图?城镇居民房屋的室内场景什么时候能加进来,而不是窗门闭,毫无生气? 什么时候新建筑的脚手架动画能加进去,让领地看起来生机盎然?什么时候让我真的像个领主一样自己建设自己的城镇城堡,而不是用一句复杂就简单地推脱掉?
