The Guild 2: Renaissance - Patch 4.21
« on: 20 July 2015, 17:09:05 »
The work on patch 4.21 for "The Guild 2: Renaissance" finally came to an end. Patch 4.21 includes all previous patches and is available for download here.
(Steam users might possibly have to wait a bit longer...)

A heartfelt THANKS to all the guys from the RUNEFORGE team for their tireless work on a voluntary basis! Thanks to your help a huge number of bugs was removed from the game. In addition some useful features were added and the game balance has been revised completely.

We also would like to say THANK YOU to the patch testers. Without your help the RUNEFORGE team wouldn't have been able to find and fix a lot of those bugs!

-------------------------

4.21 (full patch)
*** Fixed Bugs ***
- ModLauncher: various bugfixes
- number of necessary inhabitants for city-level up was shown
  incorrectly
- sometimes it was possible to have 2 Imperial Cities on a map, what
  led to the doubled amount of imperial offices
- incorrect error message with guild items, if city had not the right
  to have a guild
- while viewing the list of the guildmasters, the city name could have
  been shown incorrectly
- sometimes the message of exhausted resources could be spammed by the
  game
- Error with random events fixed
- An error prevented the AI from using toad slime and toad excrement
- the measure "Embezzle Public Money" should no longer end in an
  endless loop
- Partners could go away from the bathtube while using the measure
  "Take a bath with a partner"
- Outlaws are now being hunted and killed by the guards
- Lovers cannot be employed by AI or other players anymore
- Wedding in the monastry: both partners now go at the same time to the
  monastry
- AI can now use "Divorce"
- AI will try as hard as possible to get to office meetings and court
  sessions
- while being at war, a character can no longer be accused
- pregnant women can no longer be tortured
- Medics got stuck if Town-NPCs tried to get treated. Town-NPCs will no
  longer visit hospitals
- If Patients didn't have enough money, the hospitals would still lose
  the medicine. Now hospitals get their medicines back.
- Now you can't bribe/compliment/flirt to office holders after 16:30,
  because this could lead to sims leaving the townhall during the
  council meetings.
- Fixed a random bug with town guards, which escorted you forever
- The AI gets a new measure which will prevent them from going bankrupt
  (depending on difficulty setting)
- Probability of black death, the ratboy, etc. are now dependent on the
  difficulty
- when crashing into each other, one cart could stop his movement
- office sessions could get stuck
- you can again take credits at the guildhouse
- Using the measure "Quacksalver" could cause problems with the AI, because
  they where not able to transfer the content of their inventory to the
  inventory of the hospital.
- Young AI Dynastymembers could participate in the production of goods
- Automatic Trade routes do not stop anymore
- Wenches no longer stuck in front of the pub. They will search for new places
  frequently
- Fixed an protection money-exploit: If your demand is rejected, you will get
  a cooldown on further protection money atempts
- robbers will now remove items from their inventory if the robbercamp's
  inventory is full
- robbers will no longer follow previously attacked carts
- robbers will no longer have "the bag" in their hands, if the robbercamp's
  inventory is full
- dead characters do no longer receive random events
- player carts could stop their route, but it is possible that they get stuck
  because of the "spinning-carts"-bug
- Healing diseases no longer removes all additional talent boni due to a workaround.
 (Many thanks to Sublogic for his input!)
- Because of a bug with the pathfinding, caused by the construction of a building, some
  buildings could no longer be entered. Therefore we developed a workaround, which should work
  in most of the cases.
- Cemetery AI is now working again!
- Sims don't get stuck inside the stonemason's building
- The thief-measure "disguise" now has a duration of 1 hour as intended
- Sims that are not in the active player group don't get the message "you are awaken" anymore
- The AI now also needs the right nobility title to insult someone.
- Fixed a bug in the behaviour of the royal guards
- various small bugfixes

*** Features & Content ***
- new option for the frequency of office sessions:
  every round, every 2 rounds or every 4 rounds
- Hannover is available in-game again
- New Map: Ulm
- New Map: Pressburg and Vienna
- The Shadow-AI now can court and marry
- Married AI couples will now always go for the adoption of orphans if
  they have no children
- Married Shadow AIs will start with a child
- The Owner of Mines can now hire Mine-Guards
   -> These strong guards will protect the mine for 16 hours and can not be controlled
   -> There is a cooldown of 24 hours, Player have to pay 1000 gold
   -> The AI will protect their mines whenever they can

*** Balancing ***
- When holding a worship priests better their faith
  (thanks to LordProtektor)

- higher spawnrate of Hering and Salmon at market on maps, without
  fish-sources
- After a burglary you can only get as much money as the owner of the
  building has
- Price for forced marriage now dependent on the level of the
  "destination"
- Minimum cost of the forced marriage is now 1500
- doubled the amount of healthpoints of the mine
- increased amount of healthpoints of the woodcutter's hut
- Protection money fully rebalanced: now depends much more on the building's level
- Market/Item-adjustments.
- Cemetery gets first item-ugrades for free
- The weight of some ressources have been reduced because of some problems
- The mine is much more expensive to build and also now needs to unlock upgrades for Gold and Gems. All mine-upgrades are quite expensive.
- The measure "Curse building" is now much more likely to succeed if you have a high "secret knowledge" skill
- We fixed an exploit, that allowed to hire henchmen and sell their stuff to make high profits.
- We fixed an exploit, that allowed to marry high leveled spouses: you can no longer hire an employee, fire them and marry them to get a well trained new family member.
  Employees who get fired will now be resetted.
- Mercenaries get more profit and lose less favor.

The Guild 2: Renaissance - Patch 4.21 (hotfix)
« Reply #6 on: 22 July 2015, 09:30:18 »
Sadly, we have discovered that the feature "frequency of council meetings" is buggy and that some other bugs found their way in patch 4.21 :(
We decided to work on a hotfix in the next days. It will not fix all bugs that you guys may have found - it is just a hotfix for that feature and a small number of other bugs.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Ye... You guys put 4.21 as beta, so it doesn't autodownload. Gotta go to the beta menu on steam and select it
