Patch 0.5.3 - 'Third Strike'

Sorry for the wait on this patch, but on the up side it is bigger than we planned. There are a lot of bug fixes here, notably a fix for the Ottoman CTD. We also have some minor content additions along with some quality of life fixes; Germany has received a buf, Morocco is now released at game start, wars now have custom scripted names and more localisation work has been done. We are hoping this will be the last patch for 0.5, but we will keep watching and if any issues do arise we will of course issue a fix. Finally, thanks to everyone using the new bug tracker, it is making our lives much easier.

Patch 0.5.2 - 'Second Strike'

As is becoming a worrying tradition for us, 0.5 was not an ideal release. That being said, the 0.5.1 hotfix seems to have fixed nearly all the issues, so we are almost proud to give you a slightly smaller hotfix. Along with many bug fixes, there are also several quality of life changes; the Union of Britain will no longer take Devolution until WKII is over, the nerfs to industrial tech have been mostly reverted, puppets will take industry focuses and the AI will no longer drown in occupation policy costs. These things aren’t as exciting as new focus tress, but nevertheless, we hope you will enjoy these changes.

Patch 0.5.1 - 'Hot Safarix'

We have also reduced the increase to factory cost to a quarter of what it was in 0.5. As seems to be our modus operandi, we added new CTD's even as we fixed dozens, but thanks to your bug reports they have been far easier to find than last time, though as always, I doubt this will be the only hotfix we need.

Patch 0.5 - 'Heia Safari'

The Kaiserreich team are proud to present alpha 0.5 ‘Heia Safari’. Been a long wait hasn’t it? We are very excited to bring you the Africa rework, and encourage you to step out of Europe and play somewhere new, we promise you won’t regret it. This patch also comes with more bug fixes than the last two major patches combined, from small bugs that had been left gathering dust on our bug tracker to dozens of CTD’s and save game corruptions. We have also done our first batch of optimisation work as well as some early balance work. All of which means KR4 0.5 is the most polished version of Kaiserreich yet!

  • Fixed a lot of other stuff we forgot to add to the bug tracker, like, really a lot, really really a lot

So let's talk performance first.

Rather than testing in absolutes (it takes 21 minutes for a year to go by compared to 17 in vanilla for example) we test in percentage of vanilla speed. The last patch, 0.4.8 ran at 68% of vanilla speed. In early August we ran tests on our dev build and found speed had crashed down to 45% of vanilla. We had to, painfully, tear out our own content and go back over existing code to optimise it to bring this back up. Cutting code is never fun, and our AI team lost will over half of their work. Fortunately it wasn’t in vain, and this patch runs at about 77% of vanilla speed. That’s right, it is 11% faster than last patch even after all the extra content we have added.

DISCLAIMER: Your mileage my vary of course, every system is different, every game is different, and we can’t test after every change we make. We take as much care as we can with our testing, but we are limited in both time (we have real lives you know?) and resources (no money :-( ) so take these numbers as illustrations more than abosutles.

And balance.

Since last patch we have been collecting a lot of data from our wonderful beta testers, thank you to all of you who have helped us past and present. We have also reached out to multiplayer groups as well as continuing to have our own in house games. This has given us a lot of information which we are using as best we can. Also if you happen to be part of a large KR multiplayer group that does regular games, please get in touch with me, I’d love to get some feedback from you.

But balancing Kaiserreich is a nightmarish task; totally asymmetrical gameplay, large amounts of randomness, huge interlocking systems, AI micro control, AI macro control, massive amounts of content produced at different times by different people sometimes for totally different games. Some of the code was written by people who have not only left the team, but are completely out of contact. A while ago we said that one of out event chains for Austria was as long as the entire Russian file in vanilla. That wasn’t a lie, but it isn’t a good thing. Maintaining that kind of code is difficult, and performance and balance wise it is a disaster waiting to happen.

But enough whining, what have we done? We have identified three key areas that we are going to work on. First, the start of the Second Weltkrieg, who is able to start the war and when is very important, it is meant to be the defining event after all. So we are working to expand, remove or tweak the starting event chains and focuses for the war to ensure it starts when it should, and offers up a good fight. Second, we are taking a look at focus length, and reduced the length of many focuses in order to improve balance. A 70 day focus is 70 political power spent, and the rewards you get from it need to reflect that. Finally, we are cutting some of the more broken content until we figure out what to do with it, highlights include Qing getting 3x50% boosts to Nuclear tech and Ireland being able to mobilise over 40% of its population. Some of these changes are in this patch, the rest will be coming soon after.

DISCLAIMER: Balancing is an ongoing effort, and if I had to guess I would say we are less than 10% of the way to a balanced game. And that is if we will ever get there, all the new content is working against us giving us more variables and more code to look over. But we are trying, and if you do find game breaking exploits please get in content with me.


We hope you enjoy playing Kaiserreich 0.5 ‘Heia Safari’ as much as we did making it!

The rest of the rework, foreign policy in particular, will be in at a later date, until then bug reports are even more appreciated than normal.

  • A few changes from HOI4 1.3.3 couldn't be ported across in time (Russian infrastructure changes for example), will be added later
  • A few minor bugs haven't been fixed, but they are all just typos, cosmetic or missing GFX...with the exception of:
  • Puppets are still not peacing out correctly, we have been trying really hard to fix this one, but aren't 100% sure we have been successful, so any saves with this bug would be priceless

Fixes
