Public Test Build 0.05A Releases today after long delays and likely still contains some unstable bugs, but I believed I have sorted out most of the major crash issues. I wanted to release this before tuesdays launch of CKIII which will see me take some time away from the project to enjoy the next iteration of the Crusader Kings series and contemplate porting my work over to the new title. Hope you enjoy a bit of my WIP content :)

Hey all,

I hope everyone is staying safe during these difficult times. Again, I regret that my progress has been so slow this last year, finishing school and moving yet again while dealing with COVID-related restrictions and other issues have led to less progress than I had hoped to make on the project.

I’ve provided a brief summary of the major features or work that I made notes of in the past few months, there are many smaller fixes and additions which I can’t think of currently but I’m sure some of you might notice.

The majority of the government overhauls (especially the tribal governments being OP) are not included in this build and are still unstable and wonky. That being the case I have reduced the base levy numbers for tribal holdings and this currently reduces their ridiculuos ability to stomp any opponent into oblivion.

I especially want to thank tsf4 (Discord name) again for his earlier assistance in bugfixing and feedback.

The mod has been developed and tested with ALL of the major DLC and the latest patches. It was an early design choice and has been adhered to throughout development, my apologies to those who prefer being able to play without major DLC. It might run while missing certain DLCs, I can’t say as I haven’t tested this functionality. (Cosmetic/Unit pack DLC being present or not shouldn’t cause any issues) The mod will not work on earlier versions of the game or versions of the game without all major DLC/Expansions.

Contributions and Thanks:

This Project should be understood to be the combined work of many different contributors from many different CKII, EUIV, and total war mod teams.

I myself cannot draw almost at all, so a huge amount if not all of, the art assets come from a variety of sources and generous contributors.

The UI work has been inspired and modeled after the amazing work of Arko's UI overhaul and also the 'Marble look' of Imperator Rome.

I have been inspired by many different script/event mods and designed certain elements of the gameplay after them, some code has been integrated where possible when permitted by the original coder/creator.

All of the music and sounds come from a variety of sources, I didn't create any of them and they are mostly used for ambiance and immersion in this recreational project.
