Patch 1.5.1 was released on 2022-03-10[2] with the checksum fedb.


  • AI's will now leave factions more quickly when they are pleased with you as their liege
  • AI's will no longer press factions for Claimants they like if they also like their current liege a lot, with a decreasing chance at higher opinions (the AI will be less likely to press a claimant they have 80 opinion of if they have 60 opinion of their liege, for example)
  • The AI now considers Faith Hostility when selecting claimants
  • AI vassals are now more likely to offer a gift when paying homage
  • Added a Game Rule (Empire Obscurity) that makes empires that control below 20% of their De Jure counties be destroyed. This should solve empires sticking around forever as micro-realms.
  • Boosted the control gain from requesting Bailiffs from your Liege in a Petition
  • Corrected the modifiers of the Cup of Jamshid
  • Forcing same vote by using a hook on an elector will now last 100 years instead of 5
  • It's now much harder to invite Inspired people to your court, and practically impossible to invite anyone who's currently being sponsored
  • Landless AI's will now try to equip artifacts you gift them via the interaction (depending on rarity)
  • Only House Heads will now demand the return of artifacts if there's only a house claim
  • Strategy Lifestyle bonus to Skirmishers has been moved to the Hit and Run Perk
  • The AI now has a 5 year cooldown towards asking to educate the players children if the player refuses
  • The AI will no longer demand artifacts from players they like a lot, and will no longer keep asking after you've refused once
  • The Chaste trait now only reduces Seduction scheme power

  • Tweaked various factors in the war for England, in order to reduce the chances of Harold winning
  • AI now moves capital to London on victory in Norman conquest, if possible

  • Sacred Childbirth now grants piety each time a child is born and considers Pregnant a virtuous trait
  • Rebalanced artifact gift opinion gain

    • The 'Expected Grandeur' is always the same as their current Grandeur level. It cannot be above or below.
    • All Amenity Levels except the first two are blocked if playing Tribal
    • Amenity Costs are greatly increased if tribal (it was trivially cheap)
    • They only have access to one Court Type: Tribal. This one can be kept if feudalizing, but it doesn't give many benefits, and the AI will switch out of it fairly quickly.
    • All Tutorials and Game Concepts now mention Tribals and the differences they have
    • Several events that were ill-fitting for tribals will not appear for them (i.e. founding new City holdings)


  • A unit stack wanting to resupply will spread out its subunit stacks into neighboring provinces even though said provinces might not allow resupplying, in order to try and avoid attrition.
  • AI should take player units into account for supply situation when selecting target province.
  • AI stops to raise levies with very small amount of troops
  • Allow units to ignore hostile attrition as a last resort when moving to a target in a neighboring county.
  • Added missing check for if a unit is moving or not when calculating troop strength for supply.
  • For combat evaluation, only count available subunit stacks if they are close enough.
  • If the main subunit stack is already moving, then don't deny being available for order because some units are still technically sieging.
  • Desperate AI will be more bold when selecting targets near enemy units, or when engaging enemy units.
  • Ignore non-castle provinces when giving extra score to province targets near the war goal area.
  • In Great Holy Wars the AI will be more focused on fighting about the war goal and less likely to shy away from confrontation due to numerical weakness.
  • Instructed the AI to adjust its court amenity spending in a more responsive manner
  • AI will no longer go to war for artifacts that are below masterwork, cursed or that it cannot use (like toys).
