What are the events that change loyalty, please?
By the way, I had "beta" checked for SR1936 on steam and couldn't update game before I unchecked beta. Just informing others and letting developers know perhaps beta should be deactivated.
Also you might want to post the changelog on steam as well.

Why did you have "beta" checked? Or are you implying that that option is checked by default?

Indeed, I'm glad they managed to fix the lockups with facility placement and have hopefully got the victory complete condition working. Guess its time to start a new game in the 36 scenario.

8O Could someone translate, please? Really interested. Want to play a small, expansive country, so loyalty penalties is a crucial point.

It's an event type 72, set your region as per any other event, i2 and i3 are your x,y coordinates. Play with the value for i1 to see what you get.

I'm sorry, I still don't understand :oops:
By the way I have noticed it is now possible to annex puppet colonies without having to break alliance and declare war. This is especially good when I'm playing as Lithuania and want Memel inside of me. (Interesting note: The moment I annexed Memel, my UN status changed from satisfying to delighted, subsidy rate jumped from 0 to 2% and relations with Poland increased. I haven't checked relations changes with others countries, just used Poland to see if there will be any changes.)

• Amphibious units will now use Amphibious-landing Merchant Marines

This should help the AI in actually performing invasions (assuming its building amphibious capable units).
The plans are still in the works for a full naval ai (re)write though, right?

But I don't need any help with modding, I'm just interested to understand what exactly was changed regarding the 'loyalty system' and 'loyalty penalties' with the new update. Didn't mean to imply something is wrong.

The loyalty model didn't change, we added an event that can be used to change the loyalty of a hex/battlezone/theater.

Oh... I guess I'll postpone my Lithuania AAR until someone mods the penalty out.
