Major patch released

Patch v1.3.3 has been released - save game bug and army disappearance bug have been fixed along with many others. New features has been added. More details below:

General:
  • We are aware of the economical ‘problems’ in the second part of the game. Players will reach a point where they have so much money, they don’t even know what to spent it on. Projects’ maintenance costs should constantly scale to the economical level of the country which should work as an inflation element. Currently, there is a serious bug that is preventing this scaling from taking place. It will be fixed in the next patch.
  • Various windows should now be more transparent and less confusing.
  • Shortcuts are now in the game:
  • F1 – Menu
  • F6 – Autosave
  • 1, 2, 3 – time control
  • Space – pause
  • Num+, Num- - zoom in, zoom out
  • Arrow keys/WSAD – moving around the map

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed an issue with huge save files loading times
  • Fixed an issue with random disappearing of units after war
  • Fixed various issues with resources
  • Forming Scandinavia will now properly include player’s country in the new nation
  • Changing political system during wars will now effectively change requirements for nuclear attacks
  • Implementing unique projects won’t block deactivation of the other projects anymore
  • Fixed various typos, wrong strings and minor bugs

Balance:
  • Going bankrupt will now set money and AP to 0
  • AI should now be more effective during wars
  • Costs and effects of some diplomatic and spy actions has been revisited
  • United Nation’s coalitions should now attack more often and with more units
  • High Warmonger will now more drastically decrease relations with the rest of the world
  • Environmental damage will now decrease slower
  • Block members should now be less likely to leave player’s block, when the notification about leaving possibility is active

Important info regarding existing savegames: If you have already noticed that your game takes a long time to load a savegame, this patch won't fix it. We recommend starting a new game as the fix works only for newly created saves.

In case of trouble, you can roll back to the previous build, by right-clicking the game in the library, going into properties -> betas and entering beta password february21build. Then enable the feb21build beta branch and restart Steam.

DEMO AVAILABLE!

Try before you buy!


Dear customers, we would like to let you know that Realpolitiks Demo is available for free download. Due to the fact that Steam shows only a very small button which is easily overlooked, we have decided to post the info in a Special Announcement Section. You can find the download button next to the green "Add to cart" button.

We have received several comments from users who are not sure if they should buy the game. The demo offers you a chance to spend several long hours in Realpolitiks and test two scenarios designed to quickly show some of the highlights of the game.

Please note that the demo is based on an older version of the game (at this moment). We will update it soon.
