The Last Kingdom Reforged version 4.9 has been released fixing a major bug during end turn that could ruin games.


.removed bonus vs cav for magyars- they already have the highest charge and attack they dont need more buffs
.corrected mistake where frankish infantry and spearmen took 3 turns to recruit (now 2 )
.increased charge distance for dual weapon units (ones that charge with secondery eg Gesipes for Northumbria)
.corrected some unit size mistakes (such as northumbria elite unit being a lot smaller then mercian elite unit) now units that have low ammo of spears or have amix of spear and sword are between the sizes of sword and spear (5 soldeir difference)
.gave all elite units (not mercs or AOR) Officers like other tiers
.Gave viking factions Officers for units
.Fixed many silver surfers from viking sharing units between themselves (may have missed 1 or 2 )
.added Saxon jute Mercs as a merc unit-gave them AP with the fixed models
.Altered Munster army unit tiers-they now have a few more professional and elite units (tier 3-4) also helps with economy due to upkeep being less for tier 3-4 overall
.altered english faction officers for elite units and munster
.Altered unit descriptions to match the tier changes (may later redo lots of units)
.Fixed many mistakes in regards to unit recruitment
.Formated building descr for units
.corrected armour upgrade mistakes (units with scale/heavy armour like the oneill hammermen can get tier 3 upgrades, mail units can get tier 2 and gambeson can get tier 1)
.Altered the attack speed stats for all units again (the differences were to big potentially causing a 2 handed glitch like in vanilla med 2, let me know if its there)
.Reduced free upkeep bonus for Hadrians wall from 3 now 2, was to strong cause 2 setts have it for a total of 6 now a total of 4
.Altered Artillary and ship replenishment rates and max pool sizes. Scandies build ships faster, the the higher buildings for ary and ship increased pool size
.Altered ship and arty recruitment times, ballista and low tier ships take 2 turns, all other arty and high tier ships take 3
.Altered arty soldier stats (now only 5 armour and reduced attack from 7 to 2, charge 1, according to visuals, helps against range while making them worse in melee)
.Reded Mercenerie replenishment rates and initial units (now have the same as non merc units)
.Adjusted arty costs
.increased berserker unit size (was 22 now 32)
.removed attribute 'javalins thrown before charge' adjusted spear thrower charge distance (now its between a normal inf and a pure missile, helps with them charging while still having ammo
.fixed silver surfer officers for scotland (highland clansmen and celtic nobles)
.changed accent for Britons to Eastern European, altered unit accent accordingly
.Fixed some accents being wrong for units (scandie AOR units having Mediterranean accents)
.Moved around rebel starting armies, altered some general units for rebels, now use actual general units (now starting rebel armies will hide in forests to ambush) did the same for viking army in Alba
.Altered rebel general traits of new generals
.Altered some king ancillary requirements, Viking faction now can obtain 'King of Northhybre, Dubhlin' vy just holding onto the required lands, for all irish + Alba to get High king of Ireland, must end turn inside Meath (where the kings are crowned) some king titles now are obtained at start of turn (king of the picts is one of them, so you wont have to wait for a turn to get it after getting new king)
all special king titles-eg Brytanwalda, King of the Britons etc no longer need king to spend a turn in a settlement.
.fixed some minor lord ancy txt
.changed battle music for some regions;
Chester Sumorsaete Hwicce Chester now have anglo-saxon music
Strathclyde, Galloway, North Cumberland and all dumnonia have briton music
(North Cumberland kinda, originally it was ofc but then taken by northumbria then later Strat Clut, but it makes the local areas more unique and less repetetive
Chester may have been quite britonic but it was under northumbria rule since 616 )

.fixed txt mistake for tier 1 archer building and some others
.Completely altered many region buildings, now the south is more develeoped then the north and some areas have unique high tier buildings according to the description of the 'lord of settlement' Britons have tier 2 archer bonus building, scandeis tier 1. Franks have tier 3 horse building, britons tier 2 Alba gets tier 2 and tier 1-the northern part gets tier 1. europe(not scandies) get cobled roads and tier 3 farms ( not rebel setts as those areas are less developed) England and Wales/Dumnonia get tier 1 roads and tier 2 farms
North england, ireland and denmark (not beyond hadrians wall) get tier 1 farms, gave all capitals tier 1 treasury -franks get tier 2
.Altered city and building requirements for some buildings, to get archer bonus now need hunting grounds, dueling grounds need vilalge council, horse trainer need trading post (all buildings are at town level needed)
.Made all wonder needs a large city to be built, so its harder to break stuff eg by having hadrians wall down in normandy etc.
.made connacht come before munster in turn order (munster is more isloated and safer)
.removed all factional barracks from none Capital setts
.Gave tier 1 regional barracks to all areas in germany and 1 sett in france. places that had Angle, Saxon and Frisian tribes (so all but 2 setts in east frankia, which are Aachan and Koln, west frankia only gets dorested. Reric, Jume and Buddisin dont get it as they are slavic)
.added Dublin to requirement to obtain Ui Niell king ancy, as Dublin lands rightfully belong to the Ui Niell
.gave Dublin aor for Ui Niell. since Ulaid had close ties with Ui Niell i think its ok to have that area have the aor of Ui Niell
.Changed minor king ancy for Northumbria and Ui Niell, now they cant be obtained if the major title has been obtained. the king or heir can only have 1 of 2 lord tiles, eg the king can be King of Bernicia but not Deira. King of Gwynedd cant be obtained if your king of wales, same for others. Pict king and King of Alba also have the same system. Grand titles have been left alone except for king of Norway and Alba

.fixed mistake with briton king requirement
.increased money amounts for sacking setts
.altered some irish lord ancy txt (Dubhlin lord now uses Ireland title system not scandanavian system)

.added a few christian building to some setts (eg Iona Abbey represented by a Abbey)
.added +1 religious conversion for tier 3 monastery

.Made Mercia start at war with Denmark, also helps Gwynedd last longer due to not being as focused by Mercia
.Removed anglo-saxon alliances did not fit the time period
.Added spy agents to Ui Niell, Normans and West Franks
.Adjusted some starting relations-Alba starts on good terms with Connacht ( they have blood ties and did not fight to much) and outstanding relations with Strat Clut who they are at war with ( allows potential of marriage to the Strat Clut heir making it Historicaly accurate) anltered Anglo-Saxon relations, now most of them like each other but not so much Mercia
.Gave Northumbria general Ecgberht a Custome trait 'Puppet Cyning'
he should be easier to bribe and is kind of hated, but he has a large bodyguard
.altered gwynedd and cernou AI personalatie (they should build better units now)

.Altered requirments for minor king ancy for faction leader. now as long as there is no grand king title in the faction the king has 100% chance to get the minor king titles by ending turn in the desired sett while having 100% movmenet (spend 2 turn in the sett)
.Added king of Dál Riata for Alba, they need to obatin all the land holdings that belonged to the Dál Riata which includes Ulaid. this is the companion king title to King of the picts, so if Alba looses pictland they can use this one, but Pictland king will have president over Dál Riata king (if you can get 1 or the other Pict king will be chosen)
