Minor Update v0.15.17 Released!

For the second round of hotfixes for the recently released Nobility and Clergy update, we have been focusing on AI, crashes and added few extra UI improvements. Especially those of you, who are playing on bigger maps, will certainly find useful the ability to change the frequency of autosaves in the settings, or turn them off alltogether! We have addressed a lot of issues, so let's just jump into the changelog right away.

We are monitoring both the Steam forums and conversations on our Discord. You can also mail us your feedback to info@lordsandvilleins.com. If you wish to file a bug report, please make sure to include a screenshot and ideally a save file and player logs, that can be located in Users\[USER]\AppData\LocalLow\Honestly Games\Lords and Villeins\ and the SaveData subfolder.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed several issues with trash pile management.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an accounting report to not show the previous season.
  • Fixed a crash caused when villagers are removing a knackery with corpses inside.
  • Fixed several crashes with AI causing them to be "Doing nothing" and eventually starving or freezing.
  • Fixed bug with Coinmakers not making money from silver or copper.
  • Fixed an issue with the calculation of donations to the clergy by noble families. This is a likely cause behind frequent departures of nobles despite limited donations done by the player.
  • Fixed an issue with building a structure that causes the creation of an unclickable and unremovable blueprint.
  • Fixed an issue with animal procreation needs, preventing them from reproducing.
  • Fixed scaling for animal generation frequency on bigger maps.
  • Fixed an issue with caravans not coming to town perpetually, after a deadly incident.
  • Fixed a few issues causing corrupted save files and preventing the game from saving.
  • Fixed an issue with caravans getting temporarily stuck when leashing animals during departure.
  • Fixed issue causing villagers of exiled families constantly leash animals to the edge of the map.
  • Fixed an issue making it possible for a villager or an animal move into a structure that was under construction and becomming permanently stuck
  • Fixed an issue causing lag spikes when villagers tried to enter an inaccessible area
  • Fixed an issue causing villagers to be stuck when they try to empty bar after sitting on a chair
  • Improved the pricing system to reflect long existing stock that has not been sold off. This should drive prices down the more villagers compile produced resources and trigger caravans to become interested in purchasing. We have identified this to be the main reason for a low caravan interest.
  • Fixed the description text of the feeder to display assigned animals correctly.
  • Added missing resources to the farmland production list (Wheat, Barley, Oat, Rye, Rice).

  • Fixed visual issue with fireplace always appearing to be on even when it is off.
  • Added silver and copper jewelery to the supported resources of the cabinet storage.
  • Updated tooltip of the oven to say "Heating" instead of "Baking".
  • Fixed an issue with statues not generating statue resource when removed.
  • Fixed an issue causing wool and gem ore to not be collected under stewardry.
  • Fixed issue with negative demand displayed in the market presence.
  • Fixed issue with butchers slaughtering animals before they had a butchering table.
  • Fixed a visual issue with decorations placed ona table (i.e. candle).
  • The price list now shows prices for meals and alcohol served at the bar.

Balance Changes

  • Price for bed at the inn / tavern as well as profit from sold beverages has been increased.

  • Reduced frequency of villagers drinking at the inn.
  • Increased all prices by 25%, together with the amount of gold villagers carry.
  • Reduced prices of fish, meat and sausages, to make them competitive with other food ingredients and give butchers and fishers a chance to profit.

  • Villagers will now purchase beer or mead at random.
  • Increased profit per alcohol glass.
