Patch 1.3, aka "Livy", was released on 2019-12-03[1] with the checksum 448a. The patch was released alongside the the content pack The Punic Wars.

Release highlights

On top of a mountain of bug fixes, AI and polish improvements, the release contains new features for the game, of which :

  • Map changes to Sicily, Ireland, Scotland, Greece and parts of the Baltic Coast.
  • Character Experience System, rewarding the cultivation of important characters within your nation.
  • Mapmode Manager: providing support for additional future mapmodes, and allowing you to customize your mapmode bar.
  • Inferno Graphics: See the ravages of war like never before, as sacked cities burn and smoke.
  • Family Rework: A focused, IR-unique take on the importance of characters and great families in the Hellenistic era.
  • Generated Mission Templates, giving all nations access to objectives relevant to their own situation.

New Features

  • New Mission System. The player can at any time pick one of up to three missions. Each mission is a tree that is composed of a number of tasks. Tasks can be timed or instant, and some branches of the tree can be exclusive to one another.
  • Added Dynamic and Procedural Missions for conquest for all countries in the game.
  • Added Dynamic Mission for developing a Governorship for all countries in the game.
  • Added mission to reform out of tribalism for Tribes.
  • Great Families: Each country will now have a limited set of Major families that expect to hold a certain influence in the state. By ensuring their members have the amount of jobs they expect, the families will support your rule, but failing to do so will encourage them to rebel.
  • Minor Characters: Characters that are not part of Great Families will appear during the campaign and will wield influence and power, but will not be able to call on their kin to get them jobs and positions.
  • A Great Family’s Prestige rating will now determine their share of the national pool of Power Base, meaning Families that have held many important jobs will become more dangerous over time.
  • Families can now adopt minor characters, and the player can adopt characters to their ruling families in monarchies. Adoption reduces the prestige of the family that adopts and will present the choice of whether to change the family name of the newly adopted person or not.
  • Map Mode Manager: You can now select which map modes will be shown in the bar above the Minimap by dragging and dropping.
  • Armies now consume and carry food: All units can now carry food with them on campaign, and will consume that food if they are in a situation where they would normally take attrition, instead of losing men. Armies in friendly territory will stock up on food from the Provincial stores.
  • Reworked Reinforcement rules: Armies will now only reinforce if they are not currently taking attrition. Consequently sieges can now be lost by the attacker if they run out of food but armies can also operate far deeper into enemy territory without taking attrition, as long as they bring enough food.
  • Added Supply Train unit with greater food carrying capacity for long campaigns and sieges.
  • Updated Map in Greece, Anatolia, Hibernia, and the Baltic region. Added new territories, impassables and countries, as well as more navigable rivers.
  • Statesmanship now governs how well your characters perform in administrative government jobs. Statesmanship is built up by a character over time and acts as a multiplier on their skill, meaning inexperienced characters will not perform to their full potential.
  • Line System: Lines will now mark ongoing migration and trade routes on the map, more clearly illustrating these features when you are looking at their respective interfaces.
  • Subject Interactions: Subjects can now be asked to abandon an ungrateful overlord, and can themselves seek out a new overlord if they are displeased with their current one.
  • Added Minor Event Category: Minor events will not open automatically on your screen but will instead be placed in queue before they take effect. Minor events will primarily be those that are of low impact and connected with characters.

  • Added 9 unique mission trees for Rome.
  • Added 10 unique mission trees for Carthage and other Punic countries.

  • Raze and Pillage can now be used regardless of whether you're at war with the province owner. It will add a stacking opinion debuff each time the action is performed. If opinion goes below -180, a war will be declared, treating the pillaging country as attacker.

  • AI armies will no longer drill when at war or when there are threats nearby
  • Pathfinding should now avoid storms n' deserts when possible.
  • AI may try to assault if its army is unavoidably attriting away due to lack of food and there is nothing else for it to do, because it’s more useful to the nation dying in a breach than dying of dysentery.
  • AI should be a bit better at attacking low morale units defeated in a battle (they were frequently waiting due to having lost some morale of their own).
  • AI should be slightly more interested in pursuing the war goal as well as state capitals.

  • AI splits up its fleets depending on perceived strength of enemy fleets now, to cover more tasks.

Misc

  • AI absolutely won't pick ship idea without ports now.
  • AI now won't disband forts as a revolter against the player (so your forts won't get deleted by troll AI).

  • Added ai_will_do script weights for inventions, ideas, trade goods, omens. AI modifier weights in ai_plan_goals have a default impact, so it may not be necessary to use these.
