Guild 3, The [In Dev]

Update 0.9.4.1 (29 October 2019)

Hi all,

We just deployed a small hotfix update to fix a bug that caused the game to crash upon loading a game which had been saved while a dynastic trade offer had been received.
Savegames from patch EA 0.9.4 should be fully compatible with this hotfix!

Thanks for your feedback and patience!


Update 0.9.4 (23 October 2019)

Hi everybody!

Today’s patch had one big topic: manual trade routes. As you know we already made some changes to that system a while ago. Since then we have received lots of feedback which made it clear that you are not yet happy with how manual trade routes are working. That’s why we prioritized another pass on the trade routes and today we’ll bring the improved trade routes to you. Additionally, we also introduced changes to the dynastic trade, particularly focused on improving trading of characters.
We are looking forward to your feedback!

Update 0.9.3.1 (02 October 2019)

Hi all,

Thanks to your feedback and reports we found three serious bugs and a few minor bugs that we want to fix with this patch.

Known issues

PLEASE NOTE: We have received a lot of bug reports over the weekend, stating that the production is no more working and about other critical bugs. Most of these occurred because, contrary to our internal tests EA 0.9.2 save games were not fully compatible with EA 0.9.3 . That is why we had to invalidate all save games from before EA 0.9.3.1 . We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

Thanks for your feedback and patience!


Update 0.9.3 (26 September 2019)

Hi all!

Patch EA 0.9.2 really had us occupied longer than expected, but we are happy that today we can announce that we released EA 0.9.3. It’s a pretty big update and it also contains lots of critical bug fixes, balancing changes to the economy and also new features like keymapping, improved quick access, etc.. We also added a few other improvements - just check out the patch notes below.

A short outlook…

We’ll put our efforts on making the way to become the Sovereign more challenging as well as holding the position of the Sovereign more interesting.

Beside that we are working on finalizing the text translations for French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. It still takes a number of weeks until we can launch these localizations.

Update 0.9.2 (06 September 2019)

Hi all! Well that EA 0.9.2 took a while but as you will see in the patch notes below we think it was worth the wait. We spent a lot of energy on stabilizing and also integrating 2 core features for multiplayer which are also probably the most complex ones: Host migration and picking up saved games together with your friends. We also added another big feature to the AI: Equipment. AI characters weren’t purchasing equipment which made them of course less and less competitive throughout the progress of a game.

Multiplayer

PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM NOW ON MULTIPLAYER IS ENABLED IN THE DEFAULT BRANCH AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO TO THE MP-BETA BRANCH ANYMORE.

What we are planning for the next patch

We moved the work on the sovereign system a bit back in our backlog. Instead we are currently working on enabling the continuation of an already won game in single player, making campaigns properly work for the AI and in Multiplayer. Additionally we are working to change the key binding system, so you have more control on your controls.

A short outlook…

Becoming sovereign isn’t easy but being sovereign is not exciting. This is what we want to change. Also we want to do another iteration on the trade routes.

Update 0.9.1 (25 July 2019)

Hi all! Today we are releasing the next patch. As you remember we had sickness as a mechanism already in the game a while ago but we took it out again as it wasn’t properly working. Now the plague and friends are back and along with them we changed the way healing businesses work (check-out the PNs below). We also focused on a problem that was mentioned by you all a lot - the amount of trial scenes. That shouldn’t be an issue anymore. Additionally we added an exciting new element to how the needs of the citizens are changing. Check-it out and have fun playing!

NOTE:

The multiplayer mode is NOT implemented in the normal version. If you want to test the multiplayer, you need to unlock the corresponding BETA version for your game.
1) Open your games library and right-click on "The Guild 3".
2) Click on "Settings".
3) In the following menu switch on the "BETA CHANNELS" far right in the "CONFIGURE GAME" section, so that the channel dropdown appears in the same section.
4) Select "Add private channels" in the channel dropdown.
5) In the following window enter the code "multiplayerbeta" and confirm to make the MP-BETA available.
You can switch between the normal game and the MP-BETA if you choose the appropriate version in the channel dropdown in this window. It then takes a moment for the necessary data to be downloaded before you can play.

We will remove this BETA version as soon as we have firmly integrated the multiplayer mode into the game.
If you have a restrictive firewall then you may have to manually open the following outgoing ports to be able to play in multiplayer:

Update 0.9.0.1 (10 July 2019)

Hi all,
We just deployed an update to fix the following issues:


Update 0.9.0 (03 July 2019)

Hi all! Today, we are probably releasing the biggest update, since we took over development of the Guild 3. Before we can jump into the patch notes, we wanted to drop a few words regarding Multiplayer. We received lots of comments, that we should focus on single player instead of multiplayer. We understand that from a player’s point of view. Nevertheless for development reasons we had to make the choice to also work on multiplayer now, because integrating MP at the end of development would have been very complex and very likely error-prone. Anyways as you will see with this patch, we are of course focusing on both modes. So what’s added in EA 0.9.0? Well, check-out the patch notes below. We hope you enjoy everything we added!

NOTE:

The multiplayer mode is NOT implemented in the normal version. If you want to test the multiplayer, you need to unlock the corresponding BETA version for your game.

For the next patch we are planning to implement a new behavior in order to drastically reduce the amount of court scenes. We also are planning to rework how the healing businesses work. Expect to have some diseases in the next patch. On the multiplayer front we will focus on host migration and the possibility to load and join saved multiplayer games.

A short outlook…

Our focus will be on adding some more interesting actions for kids and also some early unlocked diplomacy actions, so interaction with other dynasties gets more interesting from the start.

Update EA 0.8.5 (31 May 2019)

Hi all! Next version incoming. So what’s the biggest thing we added in this version. Well, it’s the Multiplayer! We call it still a Multiplayer Beta and it’s only enabled on a separate stream (see details below). There are a few things still missing for having a good MP experience and there are also still some bugs in there. Nevertheless we decided that it’s time that you all can also start playing with your friends. In order to make MP and SP less error prone we had to also make some changes regarding the way pausing works in the game. There were A LOT of bugs we resolved for MP as you can find in the bug fixes section below. Enjoy!

Update 0.8.0 (03 May 2019)

Hi all!
Today we released again an extremely big update and we are really looking forward to your feedback. We changed both the court system and the politics system significantly. From now on getting offices and using the powers and actions those offices grant will be very important. You will be able to distribute guards, change prison sentences, evict opponent families from their businesses, change what’s legal and what isn’t, and a lot more. In order to have fewer court scenes you are now also able to decide on verdicts before a court session takes place. We hope you enjoy the new version as much as we do!

New features

The biggest feature we implemented, fixed and improved is the whole political system, which covers all the different political powers, political actions and the overall voting system.

The other big feature we implemented, fixed and improved is the court system. Please check out all the specific changes below.

We also implemented a few other smaller things.

Update EA 0.7.1 (18 January 2019)

Patch notes for version EA 0.7.1

With our last version we changed the way your family is played and how the family is extended. Our new version focuses on how to lay the foundation for your dynasty and how you are able to “Habsburg”* your competitors ;) This version contains a few things we are really happy to release to you today and get your feedback on.

(*The house of Habsburg was famous for expanding their assets and empire through clever marriages with other dynasties. Tu felix Austria nube!)

New features

Please note: The game does not display/load save games from outdated patch versions as they have become incompatible due to the rework of core systems.

Performance and stability

EA 0.7.0 was a very big update and unfortunately some new issues were introduced that decreased stability and performance. That’s why we focused a lot on those 2 aspects in the last sprint. Everything related to stability can be found in the bug fixes section. In order to improve performance we removed the diary, changed parts of the pathfinding and rendering reflections in the water.

What we are planning for the next patch

The next patch will be the most brutal one so far: Combat. We will introduce a new combat system, with some new attributes, balancing and most importantly more than just 1 on 1 fights :) You will also see a slightly updated notification window, which will just be the start for a more useful notification system. Stay tuned.

A short outlook…

We are fully working on the competitor AI, the politics system and finally also now on sounds. We are really looking forward to updating the audio experience for you all.

Patch notes for version EA 0.7.0 (21 December 2018)

With this patch we are directly jumping from 0.6.0 to 0.7.0 as we are introducing a major change on how you are able to play with your family. Beside that, production of goods is now limited to business buildings while you can produce special items in your residence. In order to be able to do that, we had to touch many parts in the code. We are all really excited about the version and hope that you are as well!

Balancing

The early experience was for a long time a thorn in our side. The ability to be able to produce the same items in the residence as in the according level 1 business, kinda made the first business not very useful. Additionally it basically lead to the gameplay of just sending your leader back and forth until the next title was achieved. We wanted to change that and now that we have a more interesting family gameplay we decided that the time is right.

So with those changes you should be able to start your business and still be able to focus with your leader on building up a dynasty.

Patch notes for hotfix EA 0.5.3.1 (2 August 2018)

Since 0.5.3 the AI has started to act more actively. They manage, build businesses and also have ambitions for offices. As a result, unfortunately, problems have occurred that have led to crashes. As they unfortunately occurred very "randomly" (more on that below), we did not have these crashes internally in our tests. We would like to thank you for pointing out the problems and for taking the time to send us the save games. This allowed us to find and fix crashes caused by the AI changes.

Bug fixes

We hope this will improve the experience for you again. Thanks again to all for the help!
