Update 42 - Another Day in the Office
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

The past few days have been an amazing experience for our team. We started MKW as a small indie title, never expected to compete with top strategy games. But now - thanks to all your overwhelming support, and amazing feedback, we know that we are working on something special here. Sure - we still have months and months of work ahead of us, and this is just an early pre-alpha build, but we are encouraged like never before. These long days at the office are that much easier now. Thank You!!!

With our forth update this week, it was time to work on some major additions. So we picked the three most player requested features. From a full events log, and social list in the campaign, to the regional non-English chat channels. In addition we hope we finally fixed the last crash in-game, that annoying CTD on the loading screen.

We have big plans for the week ahead, as we continue work to address most of your requests and suggestions. Here`s to another great week ahead.

And so - presenting Update # 42:

New Features
-New Messenger adviser added to the campaign
-Social List added to the campaign in Messenger menu
-Events log added to the campaign in the Messenger menu
-Added new chat channels - Campaign and Off-Topic
-Added a localized non-English chat channel
-Added French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian chat channels
-Added new dialogue lines for Chancellor for War and Peace being declared

Fixes and Improvements
-Possible fix for crash during the loading screen
-No longer playing town cinematic when managing the town
-Saving value for the Enemy Withdrawal Timer in for Skirmish Saved Game
-Corrected inner palisade walls in Orleans having a hole

Update 46 - Chinese Langauge Improvements
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

I`m back after a short trip and we are right back into it, with a monumental update, that`s extremely overdue. With Chinese players representing over 60% of the Steam players, and huge share of MKW players as well, it`s about time that we add a proper Chinese translation. Due to various tech issues - mainly having our own game engine - the workload to enable Chinese characters took us a very long time to complete. But finally - we are here. In addition we are considering translating all voice overs into Chinese as well to have a 100% localization.

This update also finally fixes the foreign player chat issues, as well as addresses a few more problems - including the infamous Hamlet Wall bug.

You will also notice a cap on how much resources your town can hold in RTS mode. For now it`s set at 4999, but we will adjust it based on your feedback. Also in the next update we`ll make certain buildings like Storehouse increase this resources cap.

And so presenting Update 46:

-Full Chinese Translation
-Added resource cap to RTS mode. Capped at 4999 per resource
-Regional foreign chat will now properly work
-Fixed displaying non-English characters in the chat
-Fixed problems with Serfs not saving their location in RTS mode
-Final fix for All the Hamlet Wall issues
-A lot of changes under the hood - major code revision
-AI will progress in game much faster on hard difficulty
-AI will progress in campaign much slower on easy difficulty
-Fixed issues in Portuguese translation
-Reduced volume of the company logo splash screen

Update 48 - Campaign Battle Saves and Rebellions
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

We are getting back on track with our production plans and continuing work on major new features. Today`s update bring two major additions to the game - Kingdom Rebellions and Campaign Battle Saving.

New battle save features will automatically and manually save campaign battles and automatically resume them when you reload load your campaign. As we are still working on solution to the occasional crash in battles, the save feature should help minimize the lost progress. And overall it makes things are lot friendly when it comes to these long major town sieges.

Rebellions game mechanic will no longer let you attack your own Kingdom without penalties. If your standing with your King falls bellow 0, you will be declared an outlaw and a rebel and find yourself hunter by your own kind. But corruption is your friend here, and for a good bribe your King will turn a blind eye to you carving out his Kingdom for yourself.

A lot more awesome diplomatic options are coming soon, including being able to depose your King and crown yourself or the other Lord in your Kingdom. In addition we are working on a complete rewrite of the world map campaign AI, it`s making it a lot smarter and changes things from Kingdoms attacking each other, to individual lords waging their wars on their own or by their King`s command. You can expect all of these awesome features later on in February.

Best Wishes to everyone celebrating Lunar New Year! And so - presenting Update 48:

New Features
-Resuming campaign battles, if player quit or crashed during the battle
-Campaign Menu shows Resume Battle crossed swords symbols if save is available
-Added auto-saving every few minutes to campaign battles
-Added manual saving to the campaign battles - in the Pause Menu
-Player Rebellion & outlaw feature implements if standing with your King falls bellow 0
-Player can send Gifts and Insults within their own Kingdom to raise or lower standing
-Your own nation will actively attack you if your declared an outlaw

Fixes and Improvements
-Player Nation shows Standing with the King instead of a Diplomatic Relations value
-Diplomacy window shows Peace icons for each nation
-Fixed issue with resources lost despite sufficient resource cap at start of scenarios
-Changed the look of the Diplomacy window - all the Kingdoms in the certain spot in the list

Update 49 - Game Changer...
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

After nearly two weeks of grueling work we are happy to present you update 49, that we, with a good reason, are calling the "game changer"

From total rework of the world map AI rules and behavior, to finalizing the core diplomacy and completely reworking how it integrates into the game... We are also introducing taking over Kingdoms and eliminating other lords and countries... And so much more, for example the long requested feature where we have pre-made unit groups in battles, sorted by unit type

Everything you do will require careful planning and diplomacy now, having one enemy at the time will become critical to your success. This will make the game a lot more fun for our veteran players as well.

And last but not least - this update finally includes saving unit hitpoints and member count after the battles. There`s no such thing as a perfect lossless battle now - so get ready to see your empires crumble.

Please keep in mind that with update of this size, we might come across a couple of new bugs over the next 24 hours. If you encounter some weirdness please let us know.

And yes - this update - as always - is save game compatible.

And so, presenting Update 49:

New Features
-Player and AI Units remember their Hit Points after the battle
-Auto-resolve can now damage unit instead of destroying it
-Each lord, rather than nation, launches their own attacks
-Banners show War and Peace icons for non-player nation controlled towns
-AI will be able to raise a lot more armies - 1.5x on medium, and 2x on hard
-RTS GUI now includes unit type group buttons added (WIP)
-Defeated Lords are removed from the Chancellor window
-Major event log changes
-When a nation is destroyed, and it`s King falls, it`s removed from diplomacy list

Fixes and Improvements
-Chancellor menu shows if player is an Outlaw (at war with his own Kingdom)
-Event log will no longer show lines about AI army movement vs other AI towns
-Event log will show relative messages a lot longer
-Notification when AI lord, and AI Kind dying in battle
-Fixed major problem with Hamlet garrisons not increasing properly as the game progresses
-Fixed bug with Hamlet garrisons resetting to default on reload of the world map
-SPACE pauses/unpauses world map or battle map

Balance Changes
-Players initial standing within their Kingdom is now 25 instead of 0.
-Town garrisons - Restore 10%/20%/30% health based on Campaign Difficult per month (reversed for AI)

Our 50th Update - Alpha Milestone is here!
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

We never shy away from admitting that we have really ambitious plans with Medieval Kingdom Wars, and we still have months and months of work ahead of us, and well - at the moment - MKW is as far from perfection as ....well, it`s just far.

But, with that said - I think we can allow ourselves a little 'pat on the back', and maybe a month long vacation (fine, fine - just the back pat thing) - and celebrate the 50th update, and finally reaching the Alpha milestone of production, yay!

None of this would be possible without our player support - so please accept our never ending gratitude for believing in MKW! Special thank you to so many of you who`ve been here with us from Day 1:)

Alpha to Beta plan
Now that at least the majority of the core features are in, we are very excited to see what the next few months will bring as we work towards the Beta milestone, with ETA - later this summer.

First of we plan to wrap up last five core features this spring
-Final Diplomacy features,
-Merchant Trade Menu
-Chaplain Religion Menu
-Multiple Armies in battle
-CoOp and PvP campaign battles.

And last but not least - we are finally wrapping up a total upgrade of our game engine, switching to DirectX 11/12 tech - expected later this spring as well. Not only will it get MKW to look much better, but should also resolve the majority, if not all, performance issues.

With all of this done we`ll start working on polishing and adding to the content - unique units for all nations, more towns, new tutorial, a lot of polish to the combat and so much more.

But all of this is still to come, for now lets look at today`s Update # 50:

New Features
-Trade Goods production added to various buildings that players can construct in towns, production stacks up with more buildings of the same type
-Auto Trade Goods production added to various town and hamlet locations
-Added ability to sell Trade Goods with right click on the goods in the Steward window

-Added manual healing option to army units near friendly towns - click on a unit

Fixes and Improvements
-Fixed various bugs with units spawning with damaged battalions
-Changed the font used by the Chinese translation
-Updated the smallest game fonts to appear much larger
-Fixed various issues with Chinese translation fonts
-Solution for rare crash issue effecting very small number of players - requires game reinstall
-Winning battles reward greatly increased
-Removed trade goods reward for loosing battles

Balance Changes
-Re-Balanced prices for each technology, prices are greatly increased towards 400% boost
-AI will heal units significantly faster depending on difficulty
-Auto-healing player units is now depended on difficulty
-Ranged units gain significant boost, up to 30% higher attacks values
-Nerfed low tier infantry including Maceman and Billman - less protection vs archers, or high tier melee

Update 51 - Attack Window and Weeklong Sale
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

It`s amazing to see that so many of you are enjoying MKW, especially now that we have hundreds of players online at once. We want to take a moment to thank All of You for all the support and encouragement. Your feedback, reviews and suggestions mean a world to us, and really do inspire us to pull more and more overtime as we work on new features.

This and next week we have really great updates for you...

This week - introducing the long overdue attack window, which was sorely missed and really adds to the game. We also added a good way to capture these large strong AI towns - without 2 hour long battles - by using multiple attack auto-resolve, as garrisons now take damage. Same time we included several highly requested bug fixes and improvements.



Also next week - is a monumental step forward, as we plan to increase the number of playable factions to ~50. Instead of selecting a Kingdom - player will be able to choose to play as any of the Lords on the world map. Each Lord comes with very different starting conditions - from 1 hamlet to several hamlets, some even start with couple of large towns. Aside from different starting position, we are working to add as much difference as possible to these play-through, through starting resources, ranking with the king, and relations with other nations. Personally can`t wait to try it our next week:)

Best wishes for the weekend! And for now, presenting Update 51:

-New attack window layout
-Lords, army and other details added for the attack window
-Auto-resolve attacks on AI towns will result in AI garrison taking damage
-A way to capture large town through auto-resolve with several armies
-Fixed major issue with hamlets sometimes appearing empty
-Fixed major out of sync problem in multiplayer games with pressing Space
-Fixed bug with healing units in armies resulting in red health
-Re-balanced how much damage AI garrison takes in auto-resolve
-Fixed issue with renamed armies/towns not showing in Transfer units dialogue
-Fixed common error with Steward crafting window

Update 52 - Massive Update Price Change
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

After two busy weeks its time to present another massive update # 52... and for the lack of any better ideas we called it just that - a Massive Update. With over a dozen major new features and additions it`s one of the biggest updates we had so far: Over 50 new starting Lords (increased from 14), population happiness with lots of gameplay effects, first round of interface updates, renown implemented, cheats enabled and so much more.

And seeing how far MKW has come since Early Access launch earlier in 2017, we feel that the time is right for a price increase, to represent all the additional value. This is also fair to our early adopters and these who supported the game during the Pre-Alpha period. So... after careful consideration, we have decided to set the new price of the game to 30 USD (or your regional equivalent). If you have any questions or concerns about this - please let us know.

And as the Spring continues, we have several truly exciting updates on the way. In the next update 53 we`ll be presenting the long awaited multiple armies feature. Next up in 54 we`ll be wrapping up Diplomacy and reworking campaign AI. And finally in 55 we`ll implement first of campaign CoOp features. Around this time we should also see the first installment of the long-awaited DirectX 11 update, as well as four new major towns, and new terrain sets (desert, forests e.t.c)

Best wishes for the weekend ahead, and for now, presenting Update #52:

New Starting Lords
-Campaign Creation screen now has entirely new layout

Other Major Changes

-Hamlets and cities produces a lot less trade goods every month (only effects new campaigns)

-Constructing Church, Academy, Market, Hospital improve Happiness
-Constructing Barn, Storehouse, Blacksmith, Stone Mine, Iron Mine, Armorer decreases happiness

Other Fixes and Changes
-Greatly increased the cost of some buildings: market, blacksmith, armory, church, hospital, academy

-Significantly reduced healing cost, about 40% less now and healing makes a lot more sense

Update 53 - Menu, Banners, Balancing
Medieval Kingdom Wars - Dev Konstantin



Hey Everyone,

Another solid update today addressing more of our player requests. Together with an overdue update of the main menu, we have included a long requested feature of adding banners to buildings. In the near future we also plan something similar for the units. In addition to work on various game pause issues, and world map army creation fixes we spent a bit of time improving the balancing on Happiness and Storage.

Meanwhile we are still working on the multiple armies in battle and auto-resolve feature... Yes it`s taking us quite a bit, as complexity of the whole feature, and how it then ties into upcoming CoOp is not to be underestimated. We are confident about getting the multiple army attack feature ready for you next week though.

We are aiming to have our next update 54 early next week.

And so, presenting Update # 53:

-Updated main menu scene and music
-Added name tag banner to all buildings
-Added banner to construction plots
