Empire: Total War - Patch 1.3 veröffentlicht

Sobald ihr euch bei Steam einloggt, wird automatisch der Patch 1.3 für Empire: Total War runtergeladen. Das Update fügt Multithreading-Unterstützung hinzu (Multicore-Prozessoren) und verbessert zudem die Performance mit Einzelkern-Prozessoren. Zusätzlich zu allerlei Bugfixes und Balance-Veränderungen werden 14 neue Einheiten hinzugefügt.

Empire: Total War Update 1.3 Updates

This update includes the implementation of multi-threading in the game for multi-core processors and many optimizations that will also help increase performance on single core machines. Players will see huge benefits through increased frame rates particularly in land and naval battles.


14 Free Units have been included in this patch, adding a large amount of diversity to the playable factions and the armies the player will face. These units replace 'generic' equivalents giving each faction a unique identity on the battlefield. Here is a description of each free unit available in the update:

Prussian Grenadiers -Wearing a distinctive brass fronted mitre cap, the Prussian Grenadiers are an explosive force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Spanish Guardias de infateria - These elite guard infantry are charged with protecting the monarch and are a potent force on the battlefield.

Swedish lifeguard horse - This cavalry regiment forms part of the monarchs' household guard. Superbly drilled, they act as a shock force on the battlefield.

Holland Horse Guard -Armed with heavy cavalry sabres, these disciplined cavalrymen represent the elite of the army.

Prussian Garde Du Corp- The Prussian Garde Du Corp are a replacement for the Prussian standard Household cavalry. These heavy horse shock troops are best used to break enemy lines and overrun enemy positions. With a strong charge and fearsome attack, these riders make short work of those who would oppose a Prussian monarch.

Prussian Life guard - The Prussian life guards are equipped similarly to line infantrymen. However their uniforms are altogether more splendid, marking them out as a superior force, in arrogance if nothing else. They do a good job as garrison troops and are dedicated to the crown.

Russian Grenadiers - This new Russian unit is great for assaults and their grenades pack a mighty punch!

Spanish Guardias De Corp -The Spanish Guardias De Corp replace household cavalry for Spain. With almost unbreakable morale, on the charge they are almost unstoppable.

Spanish Grenadiers - These are a replacement for the standard Spanish Grenadiers with a distinctive bearskin hat to mark them out as exemplary on the battlefield.

Swedish 'Lifeguards of foot' - These are a highly trained replacement for the standard Swedish guard. They are often used as a force in a system that defends a monarchy and can be relied upon for utter loyalty and deadly accuracy in the field. Their professionalism is reflected in their fearsome battle reputation.

Holland Guard - The Holland Guards from the United Provinces are superior line infantry units. Carrying smoothbore muskets, they were traditionally chosen to protect the royal family and have an incredibly high morale, often making them the last troops to break in a fight.

Scots - The Scots are a Highland ex-patriate infantry used by the United Provinces, renowned for their deadly charge.

Swiss Infantry - Very disciplined infantry of the United Provinces with quick reload and excellent marksmanship.

Mamelukes - Mamelukes are fearless light horsemen, deadly when deployed against a broken or unsupported enemy.

Additionally the Spanish nation has had a new uniform design to better reflect its historical look.


Sound loading has been made asynchronous, so heavy disc access is reduced to a minimum. This makes loading times faster and reduces any instances of 'stuttering.' Unit group sounds have also been improved, for more realistic group movement. The primary sound library (Miles DLL) has been updated to stop occasional clicking. And we've added more sound variation for unit deaths and musket fire.


- Several crash bug fixes in saves, movement, agents and logic.
- Various optimizations have been made to AI and path systems to reduce the campaign map turn times.
- When the pirates are destroyed and re-emerge they now maintain a status of at war with all and are unable to enter into diplomatic negotiations.
- Added small ships on domestic trade routes from the trade nodes to home regions moving in the correct direction, i.e. with the flow of trade.
- The AI should now no longer repeatedly sign a diplomatic agreement and then break it the next turn. Treaties are more valuable and adhered to.
- We've fixed some border trade agreements allowing greater numbers of bordering factions to properly trade with one another.
- Movement arrows now reflect the range of the selected units, not the whole army/navy.
- AI will no longer counter-offer and ask for more money than the player has available.
- Fixed commerce raiding taking money from blockaded trade routes.
- Fixed navies getting stuck when forced to retreat from ports (tactical retreat).
- Fixed rare inability to attack certain ports.
- Fixed middle mouse button camera drag stopping working occasionally.
- Made emergent factions be at war with the faction they emerged against if that faction is human.
- Fixed various movement extent crashes.
- Changed background income for minor factions.
- Fixed diplomatic relations with emergent factions.
- Tactical withdrawal will now always leave armies on the landmass containing the settlement of a region.
- Changed war score system to make the AI more likely to accept peace.
- Fixed crash when embarking and disembarking armies at ports.
- Fixed trade ships not being correctly registered in trade nodes after splitting forces.
- Fixed government change diplomatic effect.
- Improved commerce raiding display on trade screen.
- Faction specific text is now used in diplomacy.
- Prevent players cancelling the movement of fleeing agents.

Balance changes

- Charge bonus generally increased across the board for all units and melee defence reduced.
- Greater diversification of stats between different unit types designed to emphasise differences and improve balance.
- Redone costs for all units for multiplayer to improve game balance which better reflects the actual battlefield worth of each unit.
- Mob formation added in for Native American, irregular and some skirmisher units.
- Spot distance for light infantry, skirmishers, irregulars, light cavalry and missile cavalry increased allowing them to spot hidden units at longer distances.
- Russian line infantry stats have been boosted to allow them to compete more with other faction's line infantry.
- Movement speed of all unit types reduced by 10%.
- Ammo for light infantry increased to 20, line to 15.

Land battle morale
- Charge morale bonus reduced from 10 to 4.
- Recent casualties, extended casualties and total casualties morale penalties increased slightly for higher percentages.
- Rear and flank exposed morale penalties increased.

- Fatigue penalty for melee reduced from 18 per tick to 10.
- Running fatigue penalty for heavy and light cavalry reduced from -3/-2 to -2/-1.

Artillery Changes
- Calibration area for cannons and howitzers reduced. Accuracy of non-round shot shot types reduced to compensate.
- Muzzle velocity of round shot for cannons increased to make them fire lower and bounce more, accuracy also increased.
- Lethality of shrapnel pieces reduced to match canister shot, range also reduced to 350.
- Load time for special shot types for howitzers increased slightly, and range reduced to 350.
- Calibration area for mortars increased, accuracy of round shot increased to compensate. Reload time increased slightly.
- Accuracy of 18 lbr horse guard artillery restored to 65.

Auch nach diesem Patch habe ich doch des öfteren Abstürze, die äußeren sich z. B. in Schlachten dahingehend, daß es erst einige Minuten lagt ohne Ende, dann crash, mit der Meldung Insufficient Video Memory, Application Terminated, oder so ähnlich. Habe mir extra Q9650 und GTX 275 AMP! rausgelassen um das Game gut zocken zu können, nachdem ja nun Mehrkern unterstützt wird. Nun ja, Grafikfehler treten auch weiterhin auf, wie z. B. das Flackern auf der Map, Einheiten und Städte sind nicht mehr zu sehen usw.
Ist aber insgesamt nun gut spielbar.
Weitere Patches werden wohl noch nötig sein!

Ja bin ich aber nicht mit Empire, das mag ich, sondern mit Steam! hätte ich mich mal vorher informiert statt vorzubestellen dann hätte ich mir später die Raubkopie ohne Steam besorgt!
Spiel läuft bei mir übrigens im Grunde wie vorher, was nicht weiter schlimm ist denn wie gesagt ich hatte nie Performanceproblem in dem Spiel.
Das ?Flottenproblem? ist bisher noch nicht aufgetreten aber ich bin erst im Jahr 1743 und meist dauert es eher so bis 1770 wenn die Flotten wirklich umfangreicher und aus größeren Linienschiffen bestehen bis es wirklich auftritt.
Einen Random-CDT hatte ich allerdings bereits beim beenden einer Runde, also ganz weg sind sie nicht.
Ansonsten keine Probleme.

Könnte es sein das du leicht unzufrieden bist? Jetzt im ernst, bei mir funktioniert alles seit dem ersten Tag. Natürlich bis auf ein paar Bugs, die hoffentlich ausgemerzt wurden/werden.

Für mich ist Empire "Total War" ein totaler schlag ins Gesicht, Steam spielt nicht immer reibungslos mit, die KI ist immer noch zu schlicht, die Sound Probleme usw.,
Wisst ihr was besonders hart ist? Das man schon die sehr hohe Qualität von Medieval 2 und die Ultimate Ki Mod schon sehr gewohnt war, dann dieser herbe Rückschlag, ich brauche ein tiefängiges Langzeit Game alla Medieval 2. Egal wie viel Patchs noch im laufe der Zeit drauf geschmissen werden, ohne die Leistungen der Community wird das mit der KI und Co. nichts mehr. :?

Finde es auch deprimierend, hatte auf den Patch gehofft, da Empire nach jeder Echtzeitschlacht im folgenden Ladebildschirm abstürzt. Nun laufen die Schlachten zwar flüssiger, aber die Amikampagne kann ich trotzdem nicht weiterspielen, da Kapitel drei mit einer Schlacht anfängt... -> Tonne!
Hat jemand das Problem schonmal gelöst??? (Vista64)
