Europa Universalis 4 Dev Diary 12th December 2017, Patch 1.24 Japan Full Changelog / Patch Notes

TLDR; Well, everything summed up and more: Love for the Philippine region and Japan (countries, ideas, clans, events, …), a lot of bugfixes and balancing the speed of modern armies while adding more ways to make them faster again. Performance improvements. Full readout in the video.

Europa Universalis 4 Dev Diary 5th December 2017, Patch 1.24 Japan

TLDR; EU4 gets a big performance boost through better programming. Modern Unit Movement gets nerfed but there are more methods to increase the speed (depending mostly on government, e.g. Nomads or Tribes get big bonuses), so possible top speed is similar. Interest rates are now at minimum 1.0%; whole interest / loan system tweaked. Drill also gives a movement % bonus now and Army Professionalism gets some tweaks in general.

Europa Universalis 4 Dev Diary 28th of November 2017, Patch 1.24 Philippines / Japan

TLDR; New Nation Tags in the Philippines: Pangasinan (Mahayana), Tondo (Hindu), Maynila (Animist), including own Luzon ideas for their small culture group. Magyas, Cebu, Butuan (Hindu) and Maguindanao (Animist) added further south with own Mindanao ideas. Also, the Oda clan alongside Kibatake and Tokugawa are now playable from the start in Japan, each with their own National Ideas. Great stuff 🙂

Stellaris Dev Diary #66 The Colour Out Of Space: Graphics & Interface, Banks Update 1.5 (Text & Talk), Video

After all the fascinating ideas, Paradox presents us with the “Bread and Butter” of every game: Graphics and Interface play a huge role when feeling a game’s fun or.. not. In this case it’s fun.

The video’s above, it’s easy to watch and get more info even. Otherwise, here’s my short overview for you if you like it quick and clean:

  • Ship Coloring: Your flag colour now determines a lot of your ship colors, space station colors, “chemtrail” colors (the ship engine trails). Pretty cool to be able to set the mood even better!
  • Map Colors: There will be more “shades” of colors available from the flag colour. What does that mean? If two neighbour empires have the same flag colour, the game will try to set them apart by using other shades of the colour. Should make mixing up empires less frequent. Nice!
  • Primitive(s) Galaxy Map Icons: You can now see on the galaxy map if there’s a primitive (non-space-age) civilization in a system and if it’s been “claimed” by an observation post or not. Very helpful!
  • Details Mapmode: What this does now – if you have it OFF, it will tell you only the things you still can / need to do in systems like: Colonize colonizeable planets, build space stations, claim primitives etc..

So all in all very good additions and more reasons to look forward to the Utopia Expansion. And if you rather use Facebook for Video, there’s a link below to cover you there, too.

Happy Gaming to you all, see you soon, your
