Crusader Kings 2 Redux
« on: March 21, 2011, 08:36:07 am »
I think the old thread got eaten up by internet dragons, so restarting here.

I like it that they are finally changing the inheritance laws, so that they are separately set per title (albeit only at a kingdom level for some reason). So if you are, say, a King of England and France, on your death, the titles may get inherited by two different people.

Cool.

Hope they also divide vassals and lieges by title so if a English lord inherits some land in France part of France doesn't suddenly become part of England.

And yes. The map is so bad it hurts.

What's wrong with the map? It looks great.
It is far better for the truth to tear my flesh to pieces, then for my soul to wander through darkness in eternal damnation.

Jet: So what kind of woman is she? What's Julia like?
Faye: Ordinary. The kind of beautiful, dangerous ordinary that you just can't leave alone.
Jet: I see.
Faye: Like an angel from the underworld. Or a devil from Paradise.

Their screenshot showing units on the map looks like a bad Dance Dance Revolution set-up.

And, although not aesthetics, there is the whole curiousness about needing to show elevation in the sea.

The map is clearly an EU:Rome mod.

Especially in the dark ages.

Unless there be dragons.

The map in Rome is probably the best thing about the game.

It does seem a bit of a waste of time. Why not just make all sea province areas -1000 for elevation and be done with it.

IIRC that would be historically appropriate, as people thought the seafloor was basically flat until long after the Middle Ages concluded.

Looks like in their push to go 3d, the portraits have a stylized 3d look.

Not sure how I feel about that as the first one looks quite ugg, although I suppose the later two examples are okay.

So anybody knows the release date?
