Major Changes:

  • You no longer assault structures if you are still moving, you only assault them if you have stopped moving (the region of the structure is your destination or you don't move at all) UNLESS your ROE is also 'all out attack'. Both the assault posture and ROE tooltips have been updated to explain that to the player.
    This is to prevent serious problems for the AI... This has been observed in several of the AGE games with unexpected assaults from the AI... She wants to assault region X, but in the end it happens she will before assault region Y and more often than not: ... bloodbath...
  • AutoGarrison is now using Advanced version (see AGE Wiki: http://www.ageod.net/agewiki/The_Auto-garrison_feature ).

  • Improvement in the Retreat after combat formula to take into account OMBs with large number of links.
  • Fixed the bug of structures not completed at setup. It affected all setups generated between October 1st (roughly) and now, for all games.
  • Deciding who is the winner or loser of a particular battle is now more accurate and will use 'Battle Points' granted for particular situations or damages done to opponent.
  • A turn without an ORD (to save the map focus) would be loaded using a map focus of 0/0, or the last map focus used. Fixed.

  • Units in structures in regions that don't have any cityscape structures are now expelled each turn.
