  • A variety of new heroes are now available to designers: Sigismund de Luxembourg, Vaclav II, Jacobo Galeoto, Erik Menved, Roger Mortimer, Frans Ackerman, Sigismund Korybut, Heinrich von Plauen, Liduina van Schiedam, John Wyclif, Meister Eckhart and Wladyslaw Lokietek.
  • The AI has once again been updated, and now trains all units and researches all new technologies.
  • For AI scripters, a number of units have been reassigned. This is to eliminate a bug in previous versions, where the AI was incapable of training these units. This means that these old units will now have different IDs. This will affect scenarios including these units (all scenarios in the Chivalry campaign have been altered so that they will have the intended units). The affected units and their new IDs are:

Knight 166 Royal Knight 847 (for Guelders, research tech ID 608; for Bohemia tech ID 609) Szlachcic 877 (to train use 'scout-cavalry-line') Ritterbruder 878 Halbbruder 879 Man-at-Arms 880 Foot Knight 881 Bajoras 882 Rhenish Knight 883 Mercenary Longbow 884 Reichsritter 885 Flemish Infantry 886 Swiss Guard (French Swiss Pikeman) 887 Italian Infantry 888 (to enable research tech ID 364 in 15th century)

Changes in version 1.66

  • Plackart now also affects Routier and Cuman Auxiliary unit lines; no longer affects Habsburger Knights. It has been enabled for England and Austria.
  • Saxon guild hall no longer available in 13th century.
  • Gaelicisation now gives the correct armour bonus to light cavalry.
  • French farm upgrade bonus now applies to Guelders, not to France.
  • English Blacksmith bonus has been removed; their Blacksmith archery technologies are 50% cheaper, now.
  • New civilisation specific interface screens.
  • Two new real world maps have been included: Central Europe and Northern Italy. These replace the Nippon and Middle East real world maps. The Low Countries and Western Europe maps have been adjusted to improve playability.
  • The AI has been updated. It is more competitive than it used to be.

Changes to 1.65

  • The Gaelicisation policy decision is now required for Scotland to be able to research the Hobigiuir.
  • Liv Auxiliary now train faster.
  • Lett Auxiliary now cost 25 florins and 45 wood (was 60 florins).
  • Riga Miltia now cost 60 food, 15 florins (was 60 food, 25 florins).
  • All Hobelar-type units now have 8 melee attack.
  • The Polish and Genoese castles now have proper garrison tags.
  • Reskinned the Guelders castle (still same appearance, but less bright red).
  • The red brick Stone Wall now has proper construction graphics.
  • Two real world maps have been replaced. Texas and Central America are now Western Europe and the Low Countries.
  • Editor only: the Jeanne la Pucelle unit has had her idling graphics fixed.

Changes to 1.64

  • Routiers and Ecorcheurs are now affected by Blacksmith archer upgrades.
  • The Helvetian archer price reduction now applies to their Mounted Crossbowmen and Cranequiniers rather than to archers.
  • The armour for the Overvaller and Kriichsman was incorrectly displayed. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed the description for the Schieringers technology, which contained an error.
  • Improved the pierce armour for the Stadswacht from 1 to 2 and for the Liebaert from 1 to 3. Other stats are unaltered.
  • The description for Nationalism (Flemish UT) was incorrect – it mistakenly informed the player Levy Quarters would work faster, while in reality Guild Halls were being affected. The description has been fixed to reflect reality.
  • The Boeyer and Kogge have been tweaked. They take up one more population slot and have no more melee armour, so they are more vulnerable versus Longships. Their hit points have also been reduced.
  • Clarification: the Overvaller/Kriichsman did not have a normal anti-cavalry bonus, but one only applying against lancer cavalry.
  • The Genoese hero, Carlo Grimaldi, has had his attack strength doubled.
  • The Ritterbruder moves slightly faster.
  • Fixed the problem of Savoyard lancers not receiving the promised amount of melee armour upon researching the Imperial Principality policy decision. Now they do get the 2/1 armour promised in the instruction.
  • The English castle price bonus (25% cheaper castles) now only applies when the Nobility policy decision has been researched.
  • The Genoese now have their own building style. For the most part, these buildings have been imported from the Rome at War mod, sometimes with adjustments. Others were made by myself.
  • A variety of new graphics have been implemented for the Princely Court, Guild Hall and Assembly Hall.
  • A few old graphics have been remade from scratch (the Austrian/Bavarian/Bohemian/Saxon castle, the Guelders monument).
  • The Livgarde now makes the appropriate attacking sound.
  • Guild Halls are now more expensive, to prevent them from being spammed as cheap defences. They now cost 125 stone.
  • Crossbowmen and arbalesters are less accurate.
  • Thumb ring no longer provides archers with 100% accuracy, but only gives a 15% bonus.
  • The Bohemian +1 skirmisher attack bonus has been removed (their skirmishers are, however, still cheaper). The attack bonus has now been applied to Frisian javelineers and skirmishers.
  • Scotland’s Normanisation PD now enables Bloodlines.
  • Scotland’s Hobigiuir now has 110 hp.
  • Ruiters and Ridders now take up 2 population.
  • Pavises now costs wood rather than stone.
  • Scenario editor: Capture Points have been added, which change ownership to a player with an army nearby once there are no defending troops present. These should allow the designer to more easily simulate area control.
  • Scenario editor: an invisible (at least in-game) house providing 200 population has been added to the editor.
  • Scenario editor: more rocks and a new waterfall object have been added under the Other tab.
  • There are two additional documentation files: the Civilisation info, listing the strengths and weaknesses of each civ, and the Counters file (in your AoE II directory), showing what unit counters what. Both were made by Herzog de Puce.

Changes to 1.63

  • Fixed the Helvetian Skirmisher/Javelineer range (the displayed range was incorrect).
  • Fixed the Szlachcic' pierce armour (it was incorrectly displayed).
  • Fixed the Gascon Crossbowman's pierce armour and attack (again, problems with their displayed statistics).
  • Fixed Ribald/Ribaudequin’s population (it only took up 1 when it should have taken up 2).
  • Slightly nerfed the Herwr/Herwr Mawr (now deals less bonus damage to spearmen and is slower).
  • Made the Habsburger/Imperial Knight faster – it now has the same speed as the Royal Knight.
  • New editor unit: the Starosta. This is a heavy infantry unit suitable for Polish and eastern European settings.
  • When killed, the French and Welsh priest still took up one population.
  • Adjusted the French/Burgundian (and some other civs’) houses; their shadows were too lengthy.
  • Renamed a few Church technologies (Fervour is now Mendicant Orders, Illumination is now Manuscript Uniformity, Theocracy is now Girdle Book and Sanctity is Celibacy). Their in-game names remain the same, however (so AI scripters need not change anything).
  • Swordsmanship no longer improves militia infantry.
  • Enabled Plate Barding Armour for Saxony.
  • Enabled Iron Casting for Bohemia with Luxembourg Dynasty (this should already have been the case, but there was a bug with the technology).
  • Liv Auxiliary has +15 hit points.
  • The English king now speaks French rather than Latin.
  • Like the Poles, Bohemian soldiers now speak Polish, rather than German.

Changes in version 1.62

  • Chivalric Order was invisible to the player if he chose Saxony - Teutonic Order (because the icon was hidden under the Swordsmanship icon).
  • Coustilier/Ecuyer wasn't available to Burgundy any more.
  • Bavarian Crossbowmen/Arbalesters did not get the promised +2 attack.
  • Poles spoke French. Now their civilians speak German, which is only slightly better but unfortunately the best I can do. Polish military units do speak Polish.
  • Overvallers/Kriichsmannen now have bonus armour and attack vs lancer (including bajorai) units.
  • Bow practise accidentally gave archers bonus melee attack, rather than pierce attack. This is now fixed.
  • There is now a distinction between units with a normal or longbow and a crossbow. Hand bows reload more quickly but are less accurate and deal out less damage. Crossbows reload more slowly but do more damage.
  • The Pavises technology is now also available to France and Genoa.
  • Herwr Mawr made slightly weaker – now has 70 in stead of 90 hit points.
  • Men-at-Arms and Foot Knights now cost, for most civs, 40 rather than 50 florins.
  • Knights and Royal Knights now cost, for most civs, 80 rather than 95 florins.
  • Teutonic Order castles now fire clusters of arrows rather than solitary ones.
  • Playing as Flanders, Friesland or Guelders your troops (but not civilians) will now speak Middle Dutch.
  • Made some changes to the campaign's scenarios. There were a few problems - for example, the Bohemian techs in 1420 - Prague were malfunctioning because they were in the wrong order and in 1407 - Maastricht the Liegeois were Polish! They are now Flemish.
  • New, in-game AI, courtesy of Belisarivs and Sudalphi. The other AI, ‘Chivalry’, is still included. Players can select this as an alternative when playing a random map.

Changes in version 1.61

  • Chivalric Order now affects Szlachcic.
  • Saxon wall damage fixed.
  • Bow Practise now affects cavalry archers and mounted crossbowmen.
  • Saxony now has access to Chivalric Order instead of Close Order Drill.
  • Bohemia: Taborite Sect now enables Bracer rather than Fletching.
  • The Teutonic Order can now construct Privateers.
  • AI script now included (called ‘Chivalry’, must still be manually selected).
  • Description errors fixed.

Changes in version 1.6

  • War Wagons now have garrison capacity.
  • Fixed descriptions of Longship and Boeyer/Kogge, to exclude the mention of garrisonability which no longer applies.
  • New monument for Friesland, the St Bernard monastery of Aduard.
  • Fixed Welsh male villager bug – dead villagers still counted to population.
  • Checked for bug: Communal Democracy doesn’t remove Swiss skirmishers’ minimum range. Bug not present – they fire at point blank range on stand ground. They may, however, still seek to maintain distance from approaching targets, which probably explains the bug report.
  • Checked for bug of Troop Skiffs still costing 1.5 pop. Bug not present.
  • Austria: no more arbalester available. Romzug enables Imperial Knight (Habsburg Knight still available from the get-go). Hausmacht enables Cuman Auxiliary and Mongol Auxiliary upgrade in 15th.
  • Bavaria: no more Cuman/Mongol Auxiliaries available. Romzug enables Imperial Knight. Hausmacht enables Rhenish Knight (which will be made a little stronger). Landesaufgebot makes militia units and Rhenish Knights cheaper.
  • Bohemia: Hussite Beliefs is now cheaper and enables two further policy decisions, from which you can pick only one. This allows the player to further specialise in one of two ways of warfare.
  • Habsburg/Imperial Knights have fewer hit points and take up 2 population slots.
  • Crossbows more expensive at the start; there is a tech available in 14th century to make them cheaper.
  • Poland replaces Lorraine, bringing a long quite a few changes. Most importantly, Poland's unique unit, the szlachcic, receives free upgrades each century. Policy decisions either enable another cavalry unit, the Bajoras, or a combination of urban units: Mounted Crossbowmen, footmen and pikemen. The castle graphic has been made by Agamemmnon for his Russian mod.
  • The Teutonic Order has been added as an additional policy decision to Saxony. The Order allows the player to gain access to a variety of all new units, but none of its non-siege military units will remain available. The Order military is quite different, being especially strong in late 14th/early 15th century, but it loses its edge if the game goes on for too long, as it lacks some late-game upgrades.
  • The Mounted Crossbowman/Cranequinier population bug has been fixed (thanks to St Chromo for pointing this out!).
  • The Rhenish Knight is now affected by Ordonnance Companies.
  • Helvetia now gets cavalry armour.
  • Enable Cranequin for Saxony.
  • Various small changes.

Changes in version 1.52

  • The red brick building sets (Denmark, Flanders, Friesland, Guelders) now have their own set of stone and fortified walls.
  • The shadows of some of the wall towers have been fixed or, in any case, improved where possible. Unfortunately fixing the gate tower flag anchors has thus far proved impossible.
  • The English skirmisher now no longer costs 205 food. This has been reduced to 20.
  • Higher resolution game icon.

Changes in version 1.51

  • The Genoese Hobelar is now called the Berroviere. This was the genuine name for Italian light cavalry during this period, and referred to the ruffian-like background of the soldiers (Hobelars originated in Scotland/Ireland as mercenaries, but the name only caught on in Western Europe).
  • New scenario editor unit added: the Carroccio. This is a banner on a carriage. It moves at the same speed as a battering ram and is virtually immune to arrows (20 pierce armour), though siege weapons and infantry assaults will crack it. It has no special effects. It is recommended you use a freeze object effect on it in your scenarios. (You can also acquire this unit during a random map game by typing ‘I love the monkey head’ in the chat bar.)
  • New scenario editor unit added: ‘Objects’. These are available only to the Gaia player and can be found under the ‘Other’ tab. It includes nine different scenario editor objects, ranging from wells to barrels to wheelbarrows to a new kind of statue.
  • New scenario editor unit added: ‘Bamboo Stump’. This is another Gaia only object, available under the ‘Other’ tab. Veteran designer might remember it from the original AoK; it has now been reinstated and no longer decomposes.
  • New scenario editor unit enabled: ‘Ice patch’. The beta ice patch that was hidden in the game is now available for the Gaia player through the ‘Other’ tab.
  • New scenario editor units added: ‘Wooden Bridge’. This is a structure found in the ‘Buildings’ tab, which can be used to construct a wooden bridge or pier.
  • Graphic fix: Bohemian monument (Karlstejn castle) made less fuzzy.

Changes in version 1.5

  • Genoese Arbalester/Guard reload time doubled.
  • Denmark now has Halberd Militia upgrade.
  • Danish militia infantry have +4 attack, -10 hit points (slightly less for the early game militia infantry).
  • Danish knightly infantry have +2 attack, -10 hit points and +1 pierce armour.
  • Galleys are now weaker.
  • Genoa is now the only state to receive Galleasses (upgraded Galleys).
  • 1420 – The Battle for Prague scenario added to the campaign.
  • The Cavalry Archer is now the Mounted Crossbowman; the Heavy Cav Archer is now the Mounted Cranequinier.
  • The English Routier now looks like the old Cavalry Archer; the Ecorcheur still looks like the old Heavy Cav Archer.
  • Composite Bow is now Plackart.
  • Saxony now gets Mounted Crossbowmen and Mounted Cranequiniers.
  • Bavaria and Helvetia now get Mounted Cranequiniers and Plackart.
  • Saxony’s policy decisions have been altered: Patrician Rule is now Hanseatic League, which grants an additional (modest) speed bonus to trade units – it is also required for the Likedeler; Noble Rule is now Kurfürst, and its +3 attack bonus which previously applied to knightly infantry now applies to all knightly units.
  • Graphic fix: Fixed smoke from the Bavarian/Genoese/Savoyard blacksmith not moving.
  • Ribald/ribaudequin projectile anchor fixed.
  • Genoa's policy decisions have been altered: Ghibellines (disables knightly cavalry, light cavalry +10 hp, faster) / Guelphs (spearmen +15 hp)
  • Lorraine's policy decisions have been altered: Gallicisation (trading fee 10%, militia +1 attack, +15 hit points) / Imperial Principality (lancers +3 attack, +2/+1p armour)
  • Brittany's policy decisions have been altered: French Fief (trading fee 10%, knightly cavalry +2 attack, enable Genoese Crossbowman) / English Alliance (herwr +20 hit points, +1 armour, enable Mercenary Longbowman)

Changes in version 1.4

  • Welsh Bombard Towers have been removed.
  • Rams are once again resistant to Bombard Towers (they deal pierce, rather than melee, damage).
  • French pikemen have -5 hit points.
  • The minimum range of Scorpions has been increased to 3 (from 2).
  • The maximum range of Scorpions has been reduced with 1.
  • Genoese Arbalester/Guard has had their range reduced to 4/5 respectively.
  • Genoa has regained Archer/Crossbowman/Arbalester line.
  • All ships, apart from Merchant Barques, Troop Skiffs and Fishing Ships, now take up multiple population slots.
  • The Galley has been added (the old Fireship, but without fire).
  • Boeyers/Longships no longer have garrisoning capacity, so they can once again auto-attack.
  • The Privateer has been changed to Carrack for France, England, Burgundy, Scotland, Denmark and Genoa; apart from the name, it is still the same.
  • The Elite Privateer is now called the Caravel when it upgrades from the Carrack.
  • The Elite Privateer is now called Likedeler for Friesland and Saxony.
  • The Privateer no longer requires a special tech to make available, just Mercenaries and Alchemy.
  • The Elite Privateer has been removed for Austria/Guelders/Lorraine/Savoy.
  • France can now build Caravels (Elite Privateers).

This section is updated as of version 2.0, released on Nov 16, 2015.
