Within the newest developer diary, Paradox explains that same-sex concubinage was “unintentionally potential” to mod into the sport previous to the 1.3 patch, however that as a result of a few of Crusader Kings III’s underlying code, this might result in a “number of errors.” That led the staff to limit the performance in patch 1.3 whereas it labored out an answer.
“Since then, we’ve made adjustments to correctly assist same-sex concubinage, and it’ll come alongside different modding enhancements in 1.3.X,” the dev diary reads. “Additional, we plan to assist same-sex marriage for mods in 1.4. On account of bigger technical dangers surrounding it, it was not possible to incorporate that in 1.3.X; we’d like extra time to check it to make sure that this assist doesn’t introduce bugs within the vanilla recreation.”
The difficulty stems from how Crusader Kings III handles familial relationships, dynasties, and inheritance – all that stuff is core to the way it works, and if among the foundational recreation logic doesn’t account for the potential of same-sex unions, then it’s simple to see how issues might come up, notably with how the AI handles LGBT characters and their choices.
