A new developer diary today for Europa Universalis IV reveals the quite popular Random New World mechanic is being looked at again. The team may change it as there's something "just off about it."
also acknowledges that Hotjoin "is still broken," and they're working to fix it. Also, Sauron and his hordes are getting evicted from 'Mt. Doom in Tibet' as high altitude lakes will now be possible.
There are some rather steep crater lakes in Europa Universalis IV as the water level in the grand strategy only operated at one unified sea level. Now Siling Lake and Lake Titicaca for example won't be massive holes in the ground. What's more, they're making the code available to modders for their own maps.
There's no definite promise that Random New World will be changing but the Paradox team is going to look into what can be done about it.
"Given that the feature does work, and given the massive time investment that would be involved in redoing it from the ground up, you can perhaps understand why that ambition has yet to be fulfilled. Nonetheless, something *may* be happening on this front in the not too distant future. No promises, though."
