Last month we started a new in-game poll, asking You to decide what you want the team to work on. And the results are in! Hundreds of players have cast their votes in-game and our plan for May and June is now set.
Requests for performance improvements overwhelmingly came on top with several hundred votes.
So it`s set – for the next several weeks we`ll be going through the game code line by line to boost performance as much as possible, especially in large battles. There might be do some minor sacrifices – like reducing number of terrain objects on the world map, and cutting number of units in battalions by a third. All in all – we expect solid results.
The second place in the poll was given to controlling AI lords, and we are working on this right now – with a lot of these elements making it into update 1.13, and more to follow. From shared views, to maintaining good relations with individual lords to be able to issue them commands on the world map. You will also be able to give commands to AI lords on the battlefield.
Thanks again for voting and your feedback! And we hope to bring you massive update 1.13 towards the end of next week.
