Post subject:  Starters Orders 7 Easy mode feedback required.

As of today's patch 1.034 there have been more modifications to the breeding algorithms in non league easy mode. I know some new players to the series and those who want the game to be less challenging have issues with the difficulty in SO7. This is related to the fact that all game horses are now bred from current stallions and mares currently in the game. This was not true for SO6 where only the player horses were bred from the players horses. Game horses were recycled and generated every season. This resulted in a fairly flat difficulty curve for the player meaning that by breeding the player could quickly outpace the game horses in terms of quality.

The intention with easy mode is to skew the level playing field caused by the realistic breeding model towards the player slightly. This need to be done slowly and with the benefit of regular feedback.

Note that you do not need to start a new game for these changes to work. The new algorithms will be utilised at the point of birth. Currently I am not sure of the effect on long term game play. The intention is to not have a significant impact but a subtly one that should help ease difficulty as generations go by.

Please leave feedback on this thread. As this thread will be used for gathering feedback please keep posts simple and avoid repeat posting.

How about making a horse editor to edit player horses. Non league of course. Am willing to pay 50 Bucks for such a program. This game is still too hard even with easier.
