Crusader Kings II Postmortem; DLC Plans

The Paradox Forums now feature a new postmortem on Crusader Kings II, written by Henrik 'Doomdark' Fåhraeus, lead designer on the medieval strategy sequel (thanks Quboid). Like any good postmortem, this looks at negative aspects of the game's development along with the positives, so Henrik describes planned features that never made it into the game, and discusses how some of that will still be added:

So, what are we planning for the future? Crusader Kings II will have many major DLC packs that are actually more like small expansions. Every time we release a major DLC, we will also release a major free content patch. I cannot say exactly when we will be adding what, but here are some things you can expect for free in the coming months:
Enhanced, more focused Crusades with a "contribution" score

        • Causes of Death
        • Asking to join an ongoing war
        • Lots of more plots and ambitions
        • Events, events, and more events
        • Improved GUI where it's needed the most (plots, marriages)
        • Flexible de jure liege structure
        • More de jure kingdoms

Of course, we will also be fixing bugs, plugging exploits and improving the interface, the AI and game balance. Oh, and unleash some DLC...

I really wish they would make vassals defend themselves against peasant rebellions and balance out the traits (possibly throw in a concept like MTW's "dread"). That's all the game really needs at this point.

Yes, but, historically speaking, as liege it's your job to protect them, otherwise there wouldn't be any sense in becoming a vassal. Without that aspect of the relationship the entire feudal "system" falls apart.

I wish that for some of the kings the ambitions didn't peter out. I started a game as Duke Magnus, died some decades later, took over as King Harald, and the only two ambitions I had available were to amass wealth and kill my wife. Then again, that's probably pretty on par with what a 63 year old Norse king would want to do.

Oh, and for some reason it keeps telling me that Duke Olaf's levies have been raised too long, even though I don't have any levies raised.
