Stellaris Hotfix 1.2.1 detailed and released

It’s patching day for Paradox games apparently, as Stellaris is joining Hearts of Iron IV in being updated today. For Stellaris, it’s a hotfix update (1.2.1) to the recently released Asimov patch.

The hotfix should be out now (it’s certainly shown up through Steam for me), and mostly deals with bug fixes. AI empires should now properly declare white peace instead of letting wars go on forever, merged fleets should no longer prioritise the smaller fleet, “Primitives nuking themselves now properly affects pop count”; things of that nature.

You can read all the changes for the Stellaris 1.2.1 hotfix on Paradox’s forum, or below.

# Features
* Forming a Defensive Pact now cancels guarantees and non-aggression pacts with that country
* Primitives nuking themselves now properly affects pop count

# Balance
* Upgraded Nomads arsenal and ship designs. Reduced Nomad Fleet HP and damage bonus modifier from +50% to +25%. Overall they should be stronger than before
