    • Mission and terrain types now provide bonuses or penalties for attackers and defenders.

Other - Miscellaneous
  • Added Taunts
    • Taunts are animations through which you can express yourself, for example, by showing Disappointment, Bowing, Surrendering,...
    • A total of 32 different animations can be acquired by getting them in the Armoury with Loot. They are categorized based on the weapons you can use them with. Not every Taunt works with every equipment type.
    • Full-body Taunts block player movement while half-body Taunts retain the ability to run around while playing the animations.
    • 6 slots can be equipped with Taunts in the Armoury before jumping into battle - where they’re accessible via the “O” button by default.
  • Implemented a custom party system for Xbox console players.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from picking up boulders and firepots.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from spawning in due to stray mounts. These are now faded out.

Performance
  • Improved the efficiency of CPU usage for multiplayer servers.

UI
Changes
  • Removed modded matches from recent games.

  • Fixed a few text overflow issues that occurred on the Lobby screen.

Dedicated Servers
  • Fixed various crashes that occurred due to warmup behavior.

  • Dedicated servers are now targeting .NET 6 instead of .NET Core 3.1.
  • Added a new console command "set_server_bandwidth_limit_in_mbps" and launch option "serverbandwidthlimitmbps" for limiting dedicated server bandwidth usage.
  • The “AutoTeamBalanceThreshold” option now accepts numbers instead of enum indices. This means that you can now set the auto team balance threshold from 0 to 30 players.

  • Added a new command line argument "use_parent_console” which forces the dedicated server to use the console it is launched from.
  • The welcome message is no longer displayed as a separate popup but is printed into the chat instead.

Both​

Crashes
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when an agent incorrectly reserved a mount that was already reserved by another agent.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred due to a bug related to siege engines.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when launching the game.

Art

Audio
  • Revised the siege engine sound effects.
  • Improved ambiance and UI sounds.
  • Added click sound effects to UI shortcut buttons.
  • Added many missing sounds to button shortcuts, such as pressing A or D to transfer troops on the party screen.

  • Fixed a bug that caused players to get stuck on the transfer troops menu if the “Hide Battle UI” option was enabled.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the game to pause when losing Window Focus, even when the option was disabled.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the wrong character animation to be used when slightly moving diagonally.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the character to stutter when on a moving object.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the sword to disappear for a moment when quickly switching the aiming direction.

Combat
  • Pushable Siege Ladders
    • Siege ladders can now be pushed back even with agents climbing on them. This can be done by the player or an AI agent until the climbers reach a certain height.
    • The action of pushing the ladder back can be canceled by attacking the pushing agent.
  • Reworked the Melee Combat AI
    • AI troops now fight less recklessly which, on average, increases the duration of combat. This was achieved by decreasing the attack frequency (especially when fighting multiple enemies), making the agents always block when within enemy strike range (when they are not attacking themselves), and through faster target reevaluation when hit by another enemy.
    • Agents now also detect the risk of becoming surrounded by multiple enemies and attempt to escape such situations.
    • Agents now preemptively raise their shields when moving towards enemy units that are preparing to shoot a projectile at them.
    • Fixed various minor bugs in melee AI behavior.
  • Improved Ranged AI and the Targeting System
    • Ranged agents no longer keep approaching the enemy during a Charge order. Instead, they get in range and open fire until the target itself gets close enough for melee.
    • Ranged agents also reposition if their view gets obstructed by a friendly troop or a tree.
    • The overall targeting system was refined to improve situations where AI agents would prioritize the player despite having more optimal targets near them. This benefits melee, ranged, and mounted troops.
    • Reduced the number of cases where agents tried to attack an enemy behind an obstacle.
    • Fixed a bug that caused horse archers to switch between melee and ranged weapons when given the “Engage” order with enemy formations far away.
  • Improved the Cavalry AI’s Aiming and Movement Systems
    • Agents now take into account their weapon’s reach when determining the attacking direction as well as try to attack the body part that would yield the most damage.
      • This also fixes a bug that caused agents to miss their target, even if it was stationary.
    • Refined the movement decision-making process, resulting in the agents’ increased tendency to couch lances, which in turn increases their effectiveness during a charge.
      • This also fixes a bug that caused two cavalry agents to circle each other indefinitely without attacking.
  • Improved AI agent positioning, fixing various related issues.
  • Fixed a bug that caused ranged AI agents to keep their distance from the enemy even if undesired.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented AI agents from picking up boulders.
  • Fixed a bug that caused AI agents to try and pick up unreachable items (for example, a weapon lying under a siege tower).
  • Fixed a bug that prevented horse archers from switching back to their bows after once using a melee weapon.

Other
  • Extended Gamepad Support
    • [PS5 only] Added various DualSense features:
      • Added support for adaptive triggers during combat. You can now feel the tightness of your bowstring and more.
      • Gyro-aiming with the controller is now possible.
      • Important sounds are played on your controller speaker during combat (also available on PS4).

    • [All other platforms]
      • Added gamepad rumbles to various in-game scenarios, both for combat and campaign.
    • Please note that the PS5/PS4 controllers features are not yet fully supported when using them on PC. We intend to work on this during the beta period.
  • [PlayStation] PS4 saves now can be migrated to PS5 consoles. First, download the save data through the cloud or import save data via USB and then use the main menu option "Transfer PS4 Save" to use the PS4 save.
  • Added 15 cheats for consoles. They can be enabled through the Campaign Options or by holding Left Bumper + Right Trigger + D-Pad Down. Enabling cheats will disable achievements.

Modding​

For further explanation and additional information on the modding changes check the following thread: v1.2.0 Modding Adjustments.

Editor
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when using the "Auto Generate Nav Mesh" functionality.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred when opening the Cloth editor via the console without first entering Editor mode.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred after closing the flora editor.
  • Modified the warning message that explains soft borders need to be present on the scene or flora may not appear correctly.
  • Path points can now be snapped to the water level.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the Max Height change option from working when using it for a single action with the Elevation or the Paint tool.

Combat
  • Added two new callbacks that allow modders to manually assign targets for AI agents. Agent.SetTargetAgent() allows modders to set a target agent but if they do not disable automatic target selection, our low-level AI will try to pick a new and different target agent when possible. To avoid that, Agent.SetAutomaticTargetSelection() can be used to disable automatic target selection, giving full control over the target selection process to the modders.
  • Added agent references to the AttackInformation struct to allow modders to use agent information in their damage calculations.

Campaign
  • Pathfinding can now be used with excluded face IDs. This enables you to allow or restrict the usage of a specific nav mesh face under set conditions. For example, AI agents on foot can be allowed to enter a specific area while restricting access to mounted AI agents. This also works on the world map, allowing you to restrict access of parties to certain areas based on set conditions.
  • Batte types are now part of their map event within the map event system.
  • Moved some of the MapEventHelper functions in Helpers to the MapEvent class. They’re now directly connected to their map event.
  • Separated PartyVisuals from PartyBase.cs. Deleted the IPartyVisual interface. All party visuals are now stored in PartyVisualManager.cs which is part of the Sandbox.View project.
  • Moved the Prosperity value from Settlement.cs to Town.cs.
  • Moved the skill level requirement for epic perk calculations to the CharacterDevelopmentModel, allowing modders to override them.
  • Changed the way companion skills are defined (sandboxcore_skill_sets.xml), making them more easily moddable.
  • Removed the neutral faction. This used to be a catch-all faction to avoid crashes and bugs in some circumstances. The code has been refactored to work without such a design.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a custom race to not be applied on save/load for heroes generated with a template from a different race. For example, if a hero named Richard is created using a hero template with an Elf race, Richard will still be an Elf after save/load.

Multiplayer
  • Fixed a crash that occurred due to missing classes and perks of a modded faction.
  • Improved moddability of the AgentStatCalculateModel. GetWeaponDamageMultiplier and GetEffectiveSkill methods now accept the relevant agent as a parameter.
  • Added CalculateStrikeMagnitudeForMissile to the StrikeMagnitudeModel, making Missile damage moddable. Removed CalculateSpeedBonusMultiplierForMissile and integrated it into the default implementation of CalculateStrikeMagnitudeForMissile.
  • Moved some MP code into the Multiplayer module (modders might need to reference these new DLLs).
  • Fixed a bug with the RoundUp calculation of the Captain mode troop counts.
  • Fixed a bug that caused newly added faction banners not to show up on the Multiplayer screens.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the scoreboard from resetting after a TDM warmup.

Audio
  • Added a new category called "music" to the module_sounds.xml. This allows modders to add music across all aspects of the game more easily.

Other
  • Fixed a bug that caused some textures added by new modules to be rendered incorrectly.

  • 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:

    • Heavy Cavalry: Increased from 70 to 85
    • Horse Archers: Increased from 70 to 80

  • 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.

patchnotes-v126.png

Beta v1.2.6 (30/11/23)​

Singleplayer​

Crashes
  • Fixed a crash that occurred during the battle due to a bug in the range calculation of units.

Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that enabled low-level troops to block a number of consecutive attacks from different directions.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the game to freeze after pressing the Auto-Deploy button during the Order of Battle phase.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented you from targeting castle gates, siege engines, and alike with an attack order.
  • Fixed a bug that caused crafted item’s names to reset after loading a save.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented some option names and values from being updated after changing the language in the Options screen.

Multiplayer​

Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that caused perks that provide a speed bonus to attacks to scale the final damage too high.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented you from joining the server even after downloading the map (with a revision parameter).

Changes
  • Implemented the in-game admin panel & admin features for dedicated servers.
    • The in-game admin panel provides an easy way to organize and moderate events. It comes with the following options:
      • Require mission restart: Game Type, Map, Attacker & Defender Culture, Minimum Score to Win Duel, Number of Rounds, Map Time Limit, Round Time Limit, Warmup Time Limit, Maximum Number of Players
      • Have immediate effect: Welcome Message, Team Balance Threshold, Friendly Damages, Class Limits (Allow, Disallow)
      • Others: End Warmup, Mute/Unmute Player, Kick Player, Ban Player
    • The admin features are only available to those who enter the server as an admin by providing the admin password (right-click on the server and then "Join as Admin"). You can then access the admin panel via the Escape menu.
      • The "AdminPassword" can be set from the server config.
    • Added an admin announcements system that pushes out text to everyone on the server. Admins can utilize it by typing the following into chat:
      • /ab [text] - Admin Broadcast - Displays the announcement in the middle of the screen as well as in chat alongside a sound notification.
      • /ac [text] - Admin Chat - Displays the announcement in chat.
    • Implemented a new configuration option to support the admin panel. The "add_map_to_usable_maps [MapName] [GameType],[GameType]" allows you to specify which maps should be made available in the admin panel for which game types.
      • For example: "add_map_to_usable_maps mp_siege_map_005 Siege,Skirmish"
    • Visit the updated Hosting a Custom Server modding documentation page to learn more.
 
  • A total of 32 different animations can be acquired by getting them in the Armoury with Loot. They are categorized based on the weapons you can use them with. Not every Taunt works with every equipment type.
Why on earth would you force players to get loot in order to get access to this?
 
Jesus christ! Now this is definitely what the game needed. Kingdom destruction, dynamic weathers, improved autoresolve, improved AI, formation targeting, mwah.

I only skimmed through the patch notes, did anyone see claimants added or will that come in the future?

Is it due to dynamic weather? Has the moon been fixed at night? Can clothes get wet on rainy days? But it's great. Finally, it's updated
 
  • Ask the tavern keeper to learn more about the clan that owns the settlement, unlocking all clan member information in the encyclopedia for a fee. Inquiring about companions reveals their details as well.
OK, great - can we PLEASE now have MORE THAN ONE single tavern scene per fricking culture? During the early part of EA (when I was really naïve) I was expecting maybe 20 different taverns in this game, each with a unique feel and atmosphere. Just a little bit of variety with taverns? Please?
 
I'm not sure what bothers you? Loot isn't purchased with real money, it's ingame money. Like, how it's supposed to be...
Loot can be only acquired in Taleworlds official servers. Vast majority of playerbase don't play in official servers for obvious reasons.
 
Good job on the update!

Just curious whether this update is out on consoles? I am on ps5, there was an update but I don't see any of these changes? Perhaps I have to start a new save?
 
HOLY DUCK
this is massive, can't wait to get into it !

The combat changes seem really nice. Formations are much more "strategic" when they engage. Hell, you can even tell by how much more defensive the AI is in tourneys. Good job!
 
  • Introduced Formation Targeting.
    • The system allows players to target specific enemy formations with one or all of the allied formations.

Massive game changer in the right direction, awesome.
The spouse can now get pregnant when traveling in the same party as the main hero (no longer requiring you to wait in a settlement).

Nice. Some good quality of life changes in here.
Removed Rhagaea’s gloves.

Okay...
AI troops now fight less recklessly which, on average, increases the duration of combat.

Excited to see how this plays out, might change up infantry troop balance.
 
This is all great, but it didn't take 2 minutes until it started crashing. Custom battle doesn't work, and i mean as a whole. If i press the button the game crashes.
Any quick fix? Already sent crash report.
