The worst problem to me in the new ancestral update is that you have not fixed a proplem that almost all the mods have and that seriously destroyes the point in this update.
The family tree does not work mainly because you can not develope you carachters because of the time.
Time moves so fast in Rome 2 that all the caracters end up dying of old age befaore thay are seriously developed.
Almost all the mods have made it so that the game speed is slower by adding 12 turns per year and slower research.
Also income and building have been sloved down. At that point caracters will live longer relative to the rest of the games speed and you can actually develope them.
If you dont fix it the mods will but I kinda feel that it's a bit stupid for game developer not to fix this cind of a gameplay issue that still persists after 5 years since the game was released.
