    Whenever I have them turned on, almost every heir is part of the secret religion, and possibly hundreds all around the realm. The last patch seems to have bugged the game rule against them, so latest heir let me see that "oh, there's 90 members in this cult including most viceroys", so I had to instead mod the events a little and make it impossible for the cult to recruit.

    I'm sure if I had it enabled in game rules, the other half would be devil worshippers.

    When they were first introduced I remember secret religions being everywhere, but they seem more toned back last time I played.

    Are yo niggas playing with Monks and Mystics?

    Because I think that without it, you don't get to put Priests to go after heretics, and therefore your Court Priest does not do his job of purging heresy.

    Sometimes I think they do it too well - I often see totally non-heretical people being brought up as heretics.

    That's the mass murder part. Or mass incarceration, in case you don't want kinslayer.

    Also you can't tell if someone is a secret cultist or not outside of actually being in the cult. But when you are, you'll notice that the cult is so huge even that super-sleuth court priest is not going to be enough to get rid of them faster than they recruit.

    I know. There's nothing setting up a game about them and nothing in the files.

    I've got a version somewhere after Horse Lords, so I assume they added that option for pacts in at a later date.

    I don't like all the shit they've added to the game, and even playing up to horse Lords is a compromise, since I can't find an earlier version around that matches with the CK2+ versions kicking around on github.

    As Oscar said, Ck2 is too easy and it's also boring as hell to map paint. I go with a realm until it reaches a certain size or I run out of my ideas to do with it, then engineer a collapse and move elsewhere seeing how things go where I once was.

    A good example of that was a Saxon dynasty game where I gave myself enough money and a claim on the Canaries to buy the ships and then invaded Andalusia and the Magrib before Chuck attacked Saxony, creating a Saxon empire reviving the Vandal name (Vandalusia) and such. Once I got far enough I broke it apart into successor kingdoms and then continued on from my rump state in Egypt, which moved onto attacking India. I was planning to keep going swallowing India and its borderland up by the time the Mongols came to face them, but my old laptop died.

    I killed 20 people from my dynasty in a war of vengeance. They were in court with a traitor. The "kinslayer" penalty fucked me up until it was so bad, a large faction within my kingdom went to war against me and forced a game over.

    Look for people in your court and vassals who have negative opinions and pay attention to them. Use your spymaster to weed out any schemes. Persuade as many people as you can from continuing their plots, if any are somewhat uncovered.

    You could also send your heir into hiding for a while.

    You automate the persuasion when it will work too, provided you don't rather want to try and imprison instead (this will require a bit more micro since a good Spymaster will find out that everyone's trying to kill everyone).

    If someone wants more Performance from CKII, this mod might help you:

    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1715780527&searchtext=

    Game is blazing fast so far, like holy shit.

    You do have to cope with the weaker fertility tho.

    Playing an India game so far, but its actually a Nestorian/Messalian game, I just lack enough power to tell all the Hindu/Jain/Buddhist heathens to fuck off and convert. Thanks to marriages, my character (who's a freaking genius) rules a good chunk of Southern India, and his mother rules a good chunk of eastern India. Plan right now is to expand to Lanka until my char inherits his mother's domain. Then I'm going to start a conquest of Northeastern India, or fight the big Rajasthan realm if they get weak

    Does this mean fewer events or something?

    Well you can check for the EVENT_PROCESS_OFFSET value in regular defines, but you can basically mod the mod and change the value to reflect normal CK2. The courtier equivalent should be the one with the bigger effect I believe.

    It is fewer events for no title and count AI,not for the player.

    $3K? Where do you live? I built my computer for half that and can run many games without problems.

    Bolsonaro and Paulo Guedes will Make Brazil Great Again!
    Then I'm going to have a turbo super-quantum computer as mine! I will have a case made of GOLD for the lulz, and I will post it here just for pimp-a-points! It will every game future and past for decades! Its going to be so bitching! I'm gonna be rich and have GOLD! GOOOOOOOOOOLD!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!

    Y'all niggas will see it - snowniggas, jungleniggas, plain niggas, hill niggas, actual niggas, even all the annoying-ass strangely-Emperor-tier insignificant Steppeniggas asking my daughters for marriage in a queue!

    Then we will see who has the potato pc, that day.

    But until then, I'm squeaking out every performance gain I can get.

    Well, a good computer made out of a good processor is not. Only, I mean.
    How about RAM, video card, HD, SSD?
