    1.0.2.13
    Released 11/1/2012
    [BUGS]
    • Mod Browser - The "Get Mods" button is now hidden if the user has disabled the steam overlay.

    Civilizations and Traits
    • Ottoman naval upkeep is now fixed. Save games that were started before the fix will not be corrected.
    • German UA and Oligarchy social policy now work together correctly.

    City States
    • Mercantile CS now only get a unique luxury for their first city (and not the cities they conquer). Unique luxury is removed upon capture (players can no longer get it by taking over a CS). Unique luxury is given back upon liberation.
    • Prevent double counting of resources when an improvement is gifted to a minor civ, then the minor civ techs up to activate the improvement.

    Diplomacy
    • Research Agreement code was previously giving double-credit to research "overflows" (i.e. when you finished a tech and the extra research was being applied to the following tech). Now the credit toward a RA will be based on Science earned that turn.
    • Corrected an issue that caused the AI to attempt coups too often, when chances of success were too low. Also implemented a new factor: Attempting a coup in a location where there is no defending spy (the current ally does not have a spy there) is >=2x as likely to work as it would if there was a spy there.
    • Resurrecting a player will have both sides forget any denouncing that happened before resurrected.
    • Don't treat player as a deal breaker just for going to war with a player again.

    Exploits
    • Do not let a player earn the 2 free techs from the Rationalism Finisher twice. Also removed the +1 Science from Libraries from that finisher.
    • If you intentionally starve your city by reassigning all your citizens to be unemployed, you won't end up with more citizens than you have population.

    Religion
    • Fix Found Religion screen so you can't find out about civs you haven't met by mousing over the religion icons.
    • Correct "Peace Loving" belief so it doesn't negate other happiness benefits from religion.
    • Rebuild religious pressure in case it was corrupted in older save games.
    • Clarify Interfaith Dialog so it mentions that Prophets earn you science too (not just missionaries).

    Scenarios
    • Removed notifications that appear at the beginning of the Fall of Rome and Mongol scenarios about lacking the proper strategic resources.

    AI
    • Dutch now will build farms before polders are available.
    • Do not allow Carthaginian units to spawn on mountains.
    • Do not allow Carthaginian Workers to end turns on mountains.
    • AI will now build more workboats and will improve oil plots in the water.
    • Automated workers that don't have anything to do will not consume all their movement.
    • Allow rush built units to trigger the operation they were built for to proceed into Gather Units phase.
    • Fixed an issue where automated workers evaluated danger incorrectly and consequently behaved incorrectly.
    • Fixed an issue where citizen management focus on Production (and possibly others) could lead to starvation.
    • Clicking on an unemployed citizen to set them back to work does not "unlock" locked citizen assignment.
    • The logic to recommend Artist improvement placement now does not count plots where improvements can't be placed, e.g. oases.
    • Add additional sanity checks for deceptive attacks. Previously, if an AI was choosing to deceptively attack, they would not check to determine if it was a good idea or not the moment before launching, which could result in “dumb” attacks.

    Units
    • Fix unit de-selection so the mini-map indicator clears.
    • Better “Next Unit” selection. Previously, the camera would jump great distances to select the next unit that needs orders, when a closer unit was available.
    • Unit cycling improvement: when a unit is promoted, do NOT cycle immediately off that unit.
    • Change minimum area size for all naval units to 10 (from 20). That allows them to be built in the same cities as harbors, seaports (and great admirals) -- i.e. on any body of water not considered to be a "lake"
    • Fix advanced promotions for melee naval ships.
    • Restore missing Cover 2 promotion entries so it is available to units again.
    • Fix a hang if a (melee) unit advanced across the world wrap seam after a combat.
    • Correct Great Admiral AI placement bug that prevented it from selecting a valid coastal city of yours.
    • Unit list now re-sorts itself correctly when a unit is promoted.
    • Subs are no longer visible (all the time) in Hot Seat mode.
    • Don't give GG points from Barbarian ranged attacks.
    • Helicopters now take damage when ending their turn over mountains.
    • Interception promotions now help the right unit (had previously been reversed).
    • Evasion promotion helps the right unit (had previously been reversed).
    • Two top-of-screen messages added to explain what is going on with intercepts (one for if the attacking air unit is eliminated, and another if he is just damaged).
    • Fixed a unit movement issue that broke melee attacking from more than one hex away.
    • Janissary heals 50 instead of 100 when killing enemy units.
    • Supply promotion now heals 15 HP outside friendly territory; matching text (was 25 HP).
    • Added a check to make sure that after a city is disbanded (ex. razed), the units remaining on the plot are allowed to be there. If not (ex. naval units), then they are moved to the nearest valid plot.
    • Fix for barbarians that would not move the turn after they spawned.
    • Have Great Engineer pick both the wonder and the city it needs to be built in (the bug was that the AI could repeatedly try to build a wonder in a city that it couldn't).
    • Make sure Caravels and Destroyers always have the Withdraw before Melee promotion, even if you don't own DLC02.
    • Barbarians should now spawn in their camp if it is empty of combat units instead of beside it.

    Optimization
    • Many performance improvements, particularly in the renderer.
    • Pathfinder fixes and optimization.

    Text Bugs
    • Fixed several text bugs.

    Misc
    • Fixed rare crashes that could occur depending on hardware.
    • Only the “alive” civilization capitals are tested for majority religion in "We are family" achievement.
    • Added missing Polish Dawn of Man audio.
    • Advisors: Messages concerning your people being unhappy/livid now display correctly (a bug was causing this to fire at the wrong time).
    • Economic Overview: Don't list diplomacy values as an expense and an income at the same time.
    • Fix auto-scrolling between turns. If a user was scrolling when a turn ended, or when combat ended, it would occasionally get “stuck” and continue scrolling.
    • Fix unit de-selection so the mini-map indicator clears.


    BALANCE CHANGES
    General
    • Reduced Happiness a bit from Mercantile City States. You no longer get +1 bonus happiness going from Friends to Allies (since you already get the luxuries then). And eliminated the +1 Happiness entering Industrial era.
    • Ballistics now requires Railroads. This will force the AI to get railroads before getting too deep in the tree.
    • Pillaging tiles now awards +25 hit points to the pillaging unit.
    • Tweaks to culture border growth:
      • Should get coastal resource tiles a bit sooner.
      • Should mildly steer towards tiles that are near unclaimed resources.
      • Should get resource tiles in rings 4 and 5 a bit sooner.
    • Austrian UA balance changes:
      • Increase the cost of a City-State by at least the amount of gold you will get from scrapping their units.
      • Must be ally for 5 turns before you can undergo a diplomatic marriage with a City-State.
      • "Yoink!" achievement is now: "As Austria, acquire a City-State with 15 or more units through Diplomatic Marriage."

    Religion
    • Pilgrimage belief now gives +2 Faith per foreign city following this religion.
    • Follower and Pantheon beliefs provide Local Happiness; Founder beliefs provide Global Happiness
    • Faith output per city is now listed in the economic overview - general information panel. Note: Faith output per city is hidden if religion is disabled.
    • AI: Buy Missionaries in city with Great Mosque as TOP priority (even over Holy City if different).
    • Tall/Wide Religion Balance Change: Add Grand Temple (National Wonder).

    Diplomacy & Espionage
    • New peace deals. Now 9 AI levels instead of the previous 5 (so one new level added between each of the earlier ones). Peace levels are now:
      • 0: White Peace (give up nothing)
      • 1: Armistice (1/2 gold, 1/2 of max GPT)
      • 2: Settlement (all gold, max GPT)
      • 3: Back-down (all luxuries, all gold, max GPT, open borders)
      • 4: Submission (all resources, all gold, max GPT, open borders)
      • 5: Surrender (one city)
      • 6: Cession (1/4 city value, 1/2 gold)
      • 7: Capitulation (1/3 city value, all gold)
      • 8: Unconditional Surrender (all but capital, all gold)
    • Peace deal code now prioritizes both cities that are close to winner's capital AND cities that were originally built by winning player (previously it was distance only).
    • Reduced espionage notification spam. Will only be notified of election and coup activities if you have met them and (have a spy in the city or are friends with them or have a relationship with them that is above the resting point.)
    • Added ability to liberate cities that are not owned by their founders or originally owned by the player. The player will receive a diplomacy bonus with the liberated player for liberating up to three cities. This liberation is not part of the "recalled to life" resurrection of a once annihilated civ. This functionality only runs if the city liberated is owned by a player that is alive. There are two ways to lose the diplomatic liberation bonus are:
      1. Declare war on someone you have liberated cities for. You have to be the first player declaring war. This does not count defensive pacts or someone you liberated declaring war on you.
      2. Capturing a city from someone you liberated. This case comes into play if A liberated a city of C's, then A & B have a defensive pact, C declares war on A & B, then A captures a city of C's. C will forget that A liberated any of their cities.
    • The AI will now liberate cities and resurrect players. There are notifications when the AI resurrects players and cities. An AI will resurrect another (non-human) player when they are trying to win a diplomatic victory. An AI will return a city if the original owner of the city has a defensive pact with the player and they are both at war with the previous owner of the city, or, the AI and the original owner have a declaration of friendship and the AI is going for a diplomatic victory.
    • Diplomacy: Peace treaty duration scales with game speed.
      • Quick: 10 turns
      • Normal: 10 turns
      • Epic: 15 turns
      • Marathon: 30 turns
    • Diplomacy: Declaration of Friendships/Denouncements now scale with game speed.
      • Quick: 50
      • Normal: 50
      • Epic: 75
      • Marathon: 150
    • Changed diplomatic globals:
      • The opinion thresholds (unforgivable/enemy/competitor/favorable/friend/ally) have been pushed farther apart. They were initally 50/30/10, now 80/40/15.
      • Diplomatic intrigue bonuses have been lowered by 1/2, from 20 to 10.
      • "Asked Stop Spying" penalty dropped from 20 to 10.
      • There are a number of changes to the duration of city-state interaction penalties, greatly reducing their duration.
    • Diplomacy overview improvements. Now displays "your open borders/embassy", "their open borders/embassy", "shared open borders/embassy"
    • With making deals, AIs will notify you when they're not willing to give enough on their side to make the deal work. This addresses some issues where you ask an AI to propose a deal and they say "we can't make a deal" and then you propose a lop-sided deal and they accept it. They will say "we aren't willing to give you enough to make this a fair trade."
    • Other civs won't warn about expansion unless the player has founded a city in the last 10 turns.
    • "We attacked your protected City-State" statements are now triggered by damage done (ex. killing a unit) rather than simply being at war. As a result, the statement should no longer be triggered by a quick succession of DoWs (such as those done automatically by a CS changing allies).
    • The AI will no longer ask other players to join in a war when they are already involved in at least one.

    Units
    • Unit Balance Changes:
      • Drop Ironclad to 45 combat strength (from 50).
      • Remove +33% vs. Cities from Battleships.
      • Drop Gatling Guns to 30 Combat and Ranged Strength.
      • Make sure Air Ambush 2 and Air Targeting 2 work for fighters and bombers.
      • Carriers now get naval melee promotions instead of naval ranged.
      • Prize Ships Balance Change: 50% chance of converting ships with equal intrinsic combat strengths. Scales up and down (between 28% and 80%) based on relative intrinsic combat strengths of the two ships. Conversion chance if you do sink the opponent is shown in blue text on combat preview window.
      • AI attackers will now pillage.
    • Promotion balance change: make the +200% vs. Cities promotion go away on upgrade.
    • Promotions: Push back Air Logistics promotion for Fighters and Bombers so it requires Bombardment 3 (not 2) or Air Siege 3 (not 2).

    AI
    • If the AI is able to build the UN, but would not win based on the current vote breakdown, have the AI refrain from constructing it unless conditions change.
    • AI adjustments to Wonder build priorities.
    • Tactical AI Improvement: Spend more gold on defense. AI will now spend gold at their cities where tactical dominance is EVEN (before it had to be enemy-dominated). AI will now also spend money on naval and air units for defense in such cites (before it was only land units and defensive buildings).
    • Changes to AI settling:
      • Expand the ring search.
      • Flatten the value of rings a bit so that tiles in the further rings are worth a bit more.
      • Make the default preferred spacing further for players not going for extreme expansion.
      • Lower the value of tiles a bit so that the AI is a bit pickier about settlements.
      • AI will try to reclaim lost settlers and builders.
      • AI will no longer wait forever for a settler escort.
      • Minor tweak to settlement location.
      • More aggressive offshore expansion.
    • Do not give priority to bonus resources in rings 4 and 5 when deciding next tile to grow towards.
    • Tweak to AI settle to reduce bonus of tiles in rings 4 and 5 if already owned.
    • Small change to make Haile Selassie less keen to expand wide.
    • AI will now consider annexing cities it has conquered.
    • The AI will not consider annexing if it is trying to win a culture victory or their empire is currently unhappy.
    • Increased happiness flavor for circus to match Colosseum.
    • Tactical/Homeland AI Improvement: Do not heal if under enemy ranged fire (that is making you lose more HP per turn than you can heal).
    • Allow AI to capture civilians more than 4 hexes from their cities.
    • Have AI build its units for sneak attack at a slightly higher priority if at high difficulty levels.
    • Have AI weight Biology a bit stronger especially if liking tanks and airplanes (unlocks oil).
    • AI tweaks to help coastal based civs:
      • Change to settlement (cities beyond the first also prefer coast).
      • Buildings that help coastal Civs have flavors adjusted (they didn't take some rules changes into account).
      • Do not force high Naval civs to build a large navy (15+ ships) in the first 100 turns.
      • Make Dido deceptive (as historical).
    • Tweaks to allow cities to make better use of extra tiles from previous change:
      • On average on extra worker or two will be built.
      • Slightly less prioritization of connecting up luxuries (still the highest priority).
      • Allow one tile islands to be settled (if they have a resource on them).
      • Slightly more prioritization of production tiles.
      • Builders will emphasize the capital so that it will always be a nicely developed city.
    • City Governor AI:
      • Prevent focused city AIs from starving as much.
      • Make a wonder that has already been started in this city a higher priority.
      • Lower the value of food for the governor when you have a large surplus.


    POLISH
    UI
    • Add in a UI overlay that shows which AI is processing its turn.
    • In the detailed view of a mod in the mods browser, additional required mods will display their title if it has been provided instead of the ID of the mod.
    • Add an “Exit to Main Menu” button to the player change screen in Hotseat.
    • Added "Restart Game" option to game menu. This option lets you restart the game and generate a new map using your current pregame settings. It's only available at Turn 0.
    • Advanced settings are now persisted across multiple single player games.
      • NOTE: This feature can be disabled by setting "PersistAdvancedSettings = 0" in Config.ini
    • The top panel now displays the month of the year if the game speed is so slow that it actually matters.
    • Messages about a player losing their capital and regaining it are now included in the replay log.
    • Messages about a player being resurrected are now included in the replay log.
    • Fixed an issue causing the replay graphs to be corrupted when a player was resurrected.
    • Display currently active mods in the single player screen.
    • Add a separate graphics option for enabling/disabling the GPU texture decode.
    • Fractal added to the map short list and random map types.
    • Garrison ring properly disappears when unit moves out of city.
    • Resource icon stacking. At lower resolutions, the resource icons clip into the date display along the top. We now hide the part of the list that clips if it’s too long, and instead, the player can mouse-over the list to see all the resources.
    • Better timing for pop-ups (finding ruins, etc.).
    • Auto unit selection improvements:
      • On load, only cycle to the next unit if the currently selected unit is not ready for selection.
      • Swap the direction that the CycleRight and CycleLeft buttons move the selection in the cycle list.
      • When closing the city screen. Re-select the last unit that was selected.
      • If the player has auto-unit-cycling off, don't auto-select the unit that is blocking the end turn.
    • Further refinement to pop-up reordering. Pop-ups should now "feel" correct each turn (in the right order, at the right time).
    • Don't prompt the player when removing fallout. Just do it. The prompt incorrectly referred to the action as removing an “improvement”.

    General
    • Switch a number of Great Merchants to Great Admirals. Add Great General: Hannibal and Great Merchant: Jakob Fugger.
    • Optimized overlay system (culture borders, etc.). This system is now making half the draw calls that it did before.
    • Flavored all the civs for anti-air and air-carrier.
    • Add a combat weapon parameter that allows for a projectile that is not going to do any damage to have a "miss" radius. The helps spread out projectiles when there are a lot of attackers, but only one or two targets.
    • Modding: Fix the hard-coded length of the promotions boolean array.
    • Modding: Provide a way for Lua to query if the UI is in "Touch Screen" mode UI.IsTouchScreenEnabled().


    WIN8 AND ULTRABOOK
    • Many performance optimizations specifically targeted to Ultrabooks with Intel Core processors with HD Graphics. NOTE: You will want to update your Intel video driver if you are running Intel HD Graphics.
    • New launcher button for Windows 8 Intel touch-enabled version.
    • Touch/Gesture Support:
      • New “gesture” menu button on main menu, and when you bring up the main menu in-game.
      • New “gesture” menu button on main menu, and when you bring up the main menu in-game.
      • New sliders to control zoom and momentum speed in Options menu.
      • Single finger tap for all UI buttons.
      • Single finger drag for scroll bars or two fingers together swiping to scroll menus by gesture.
      • Single-finger touch and drag to see tool-tips (terrain, UI, etc.).
      • Pinch and expand finger for camera zoom.
      • Two fingers dragging together moves map.
      • Three finger tap is “escape” (from other menus, or to bring up Main Menu).
      • Unit Control:
        • Single-finger tap to select unit, and then drag to issue a movement order, or...
        • Double-tap to enter “movement mode”.
        • Once in movement mode, single-tap on destination to issue an order, or touch and drag to preview movement path.

    [NOTES]
    • Pacing has received a large amount of work. Expect to have more of a challenge managing your empire at higher difficulty levels than you did before. Consider dropping a difficulty level if you have problems.
    • Existing saves will work correctly. However, the balance pass may make your existing happiness lower than expected when loading into your existing save post-patch.


    [UI]
    • Civilopedia now available in the Main Menu (under “Other”)
    • Replay is now available at the end of the game, and through the main menu. You can choose Map, Graphs, and turn-by-turn. Only games played post-patch will apply.

    • AI remembers if you fought against a common foe (positive modifier, decays over time, based on damage done to the common foe).

    • Revise code calculating recommended army size (using smaller armies if the threat is low).

    1.0.1.275
    Released 4/28/2011
    AI
    • Economic AI: Tweaks to improve the number of workers built.
    • Diplo AI: Correct minor error in calculation by AI to decide if it wants to join a coop war.
    • City Strategy AI: Fix flavor broadcast to cities just after they are founded. Player level adjustments since start of game weren't being copied over to the new city.
    • Operational AI: If AI sees that WarState is Calm (i.e. no one has troops near enemy lands), still consider launching an attack if overall military strengths are at least even.
    • Operational AI: Enhancements to more sensibly pick city from which to launch a naval invasion.
    • Operational AI: Slightly relax requirements for naval invasion to be on target (to get them onshore and attacking sooner).
    • Operational/Tactical AI: Fix to movement/deployment for naval invasion forces.
    • Operational/Tactical AI: Improved weighting and selection of muster and target cities for city attack operations.
    • Tactical AI: Early game AI tweak to allow occasional sneak attack.
    • Tactical AI: Improvements in civilian and embarked units targeting.
    • Tactical AI: Units with defensive embarkation had a combat strength when embarked and were being considered for tactical moves (like making ranged attacks) that they weren't actually eligible for.
    • Tactical AI: Improved the logic of how units are chosen for tactical moves so embarked units can now drop into place on land as flanking units, bombard units, etc.
    • Tactical AI: Changes to more effectively use Great Generals offensively.
    • Tactical AI: Citadels now project danger.
    • Tactical AI: Units defending citadels are high priority targets; AI will prioritize trying to take these spaces.
    • Tactical AI: AI will now pillage undefended citadels.
    • Tactical AI: Be wary when approaching an enemy city; don't close on it if enemy clearly has superiority.
    • Diplo AI: Make sure the diplomacy AI doesn't declare war on someone they are already at war with. Prevents confusing pop ups.
    • Operational AI: AI will now correctly abort operations against a player that were started during a war (like gathering a new attack), but could execute after a peace treaty was declared. This corrects the occasional “AI declared war during a peace treaty” issue.
    • Operational AI: Fix muster radius for gathering a naval invasion. Invasions won't get stuck trying to gather and will get moving to target sooner now.
    • Operational AI: Don't allow nuke attacks on tiles that will break a peace treaty.
    • Homeland AI: Make sure that flavor settings don't prevent workers from building improvements. This would cause some AI players to have large amounts of unimproved space in later parts of the game.
    • Homeland AI: Fixed a problem that was causing workers to ignore pillaged non-resource and bonus resource tiles.


    GRAPHICS
    • Fixed an issue that was not allowing the Americas building set to display properly.
    • If a 3D leaderhead scene cannot be created, fallback to 2D.
    • Update to river color, texture, and shader.


    GAMEPLAY
    • Units: Stealth Bombers can now get promotions.
    • Units: Add “Fortify until Healed” option for aircraft. Before, they only healed when inactive, which could cause confusion for the player.
    • Units: Prevent units with the "No Melee" promotion from capturing cities (archers, catapults, etc.).
    • Units: Air units must be in a city to upgrade, and no sneaky "I'm on a carrier in the city" either.
    • Units: Fixed a problem that was allowing units to upgrade in territories that were not their own.
    • Terrain Improvements: Allow Moai to be built over top of resources.
    • Terrain Improvements: Correct an issue that resulted in double resources if you founded a city on top of an improved resource plot.
    • Yields: Fix a load order problem where the lake bonus is not applied to a farm after loading an existing save.
    • City Management: When selling a building, ensure that all citizens are properly removed.
    • City Management: When assigning a specialist to a building, make sure we don't accidentally assign more citizens than we have available.
    • City Management: Fix for an issue that was causing workers to go missing when population went down.
    • City Management: After the citizen is removed from working, adjust the unassigned worker count before subtracting from the total population. There were rare situations that could cause the worker to disappear.
    • Culture: Keep the current culture level of the city after it is captured. The culture production will go to 0, but the culture level must remain the same or else a large city will be able to acquire tiles at the same rate as a smaller city.
    • Exploit: Removed ability to gain additional free settlers/workers by gaming the policy system.
    • Units: City States in games started in the industrial/modern era now correctly produce workers as needed.


    UI
    • Pre-Game: The tooltips for unique items in the Loading screen no longer show up until AFTER loading has finished, preventing potential “stuck” UI.
    • Pre-Game: Prevented escape key from being used to corrupt starting parameters while starting a tutorial game.
    • Pre-Game: Multi-player maps added to Single-player as well.
    • Pre-Game: Fixed a rounding issue in the options menu so that values are always integer based for the tooltip delay.
    • Pre-Game: Using ":" in a save filename is no longer considered valid since Windows does not allow this. Players could potentially use this character in a save name without knowing that the file was not created when they exited the dialog.
    • Notifications: Fix notifications that arise after a city is liberated so they show the name properly.
    • Notifications: Extra DOF expiration notifications removed.
    • Notifications: Notifications for denouncement or friendship are only displayed if the active player has met one of the teams.
    • Tool-tips: Tooltips for worker/workboat build recommendations now build dynamically by looking at tile yields for these improvements: camp, pasture, farm, mine, trading post, fishing boats, custom house and manufactory.
    • Tool-tip: Plot Mouse Over text for Natural Wonders will now display the culture yield as if it was in your borders and being worked, similar to how other yields are displayed.
    • Mod Browser: Mod Browser panels now reset their scroll value when a new mod is selected.
    • New Addition: Resource Panel integrated into upper-left Info Panel UI.

    • Combat Preview: Show Oligarchy Garrisoned Unit bonus for city ranged attacks.
    • City Screen: City Growth meter within the City screen now displays the correct amount.
    • City Screen: Fix the display of the current research progress UI, which made research estimates appear to be incorrect.
    • In-Game: Fix the display of the movement cost for units that can embark.

    • In Game: City banner now displays different tooltip for puppet cities that are not owned by the player.
    • In Game: Top Panel now differentiates between unhappiness from regular population and unhappiness from specialists.
    • In-Game: Selecting a unit in the military overview will now select that unit, selecting it twice will now move the camera to it.
    • Victory: Fix UI display of Diplomatic Victory votes (it was displaying votes from dead Civs/City States).
    • Victory: UN Voting and Results screens now have better support for team games.
    • Multiplayer: Human players no longer show an approachability type since that was meant for AI.
    • Multiplayer: Multiplayer diplomacy w/ teams no longer has overlapping text.
    • Diplomacy: There's now a confirmation dialog when you publicly denounce a civ.

    • Crash fix for diplo AI. When the player witnesses an AI leader buy a minor ally, and aggressively purchased them back, the game would eventually crash when the AI leader would correctly try to complain to you about it.

    • Crash - pCitizens->GetCityPlotFromIndex(iPlotLoop); is returning NULL in the CvPlayer:oRevolt loop.

    • Crash - In RouteValid, the CvTacticalAnalysisMap cell thinks a plot is claimed, but the plot itself has no owner.
    • Crash - Era out of bounds during a reload.

    • Tutorials – some of the tutorials were not functioning, which meant newer players seeking to learn how to play the game might run into a roadblock.
    • Modded text strings – Many mods were experiencing text keys that were not properly looking up their correct values, causing the keys to display instead of the actual text.

    Released 10/15/2013

    [UI]

    • Make the building up of warmonger threats more exponential than linear (Minor - Major - Severe - Critical)
    • Research Agreements
    • Adjusted the cost for Research Agreements based on era. The cost increase should now be more linear to coincide with the gross gold-per-turn of AI civs, and also slightly cheaper when Research Agreements can first be used.

    • Social Policies: Move double Trade Mission gold from Commerce finisher to Entrepreneurship.
    • Social Policies: Boost City-State trade bonus from +1 Gold to +2 Gold on Merchant Confederacy.

    • Civ-Specific Balance
    • Germany: Added the Hanse unique building (Replaces Bank, includes Bank bonuses, and +5% Production per City-State Trade Route across your civilization, not just cities that have a Hanse).

    • There are now diplomatic bonuses for building Landmarks in both city state and major civ territory.

    [AI]
    • Custom AI per Civ
    • Custom worker code for Brazil: Automated workers will no longer remove jungle unless there's a resource on it (ie: bananas). Workers will remove jungle for resources (like spices and bananas) but otherwise will build Brazilwood Camps.
    • Custom settlement AI for Brazil: Includes player suggestions of city sites near jungle for Brazil.
    • Custom settlement AI for Indonesia: Doubled the fertility on lucrative sites that are not on the same continent as previous cities. This should help Indonesia to better use it's UA.
    • Custom settlement AI for Netherlands: Will now tend to favor marshes and flood plains when choosing a site to settle.
    • Custom settlement AI for Morocco: They should now consider desert favorable when making settlement choices/suggestions.
    • Custom settlement AI for Spain: Settling next to Natural Wonders should now be extremely attractive to Spain.
    • Custom settlement AI for Inca: Inca should now consider hills more favorably; hills bordered by one or more mountains get an additional bonus.
    • Air Combat AI: Never rebase aircraft to a city being razed.
    • Deal AI
    • Deal AI: Never ask for something from the human that we don't consider having any value (such as Open Borders from a distant civ).
    • Deal AI: make AI aware of the value of Open Borders as players close in toward Culture Victories;
    • Deal AI: Make it so the AI will never pay more than about 15 gold-per-turn. There were cases before of 40+ gold-per-turn.
    • Fix a legacy bug that prevented the AI from ever putting together offers for a luxury that a human player now has available for trade.
    • Deal AI: fix valuation of Open Borders so AI never says "I want to negotiate passage" but doesn't put anything on the table.
    • Deal AI: Have the AI accept totally even trades with the human (before they always wanted some small bonus, even when swapping embassies ... assuming they weren't putting the embassies on the table themselves).
    • Deal AI: AI now understands how to put things on YOUR side of the deal table.
    • Deal AI: Embassies now worth 35 Gold base (so AI will almost always consider them worth 1 gold-per-turn).
    • Deal AI: Embassy cost scales based on deal duration (so 1 GPT over 45 turns is worth it on slower speeds)
    • Deal AI: AI properly values Gold in hand over GPT, so over 30 turns it won't get 150 for 5GPT. Instead only 85% of that.
    • Deal AI: Slight increase (about 7%) in the value the AI gives you in gold/gold-per-turn for things (this helped with getting them to always offer 1 GPT for Embassy).
    • Deal AI: Don't give such a huge (90%) discount on open borders with friendly players. Reduced to 65%.
    • Tactical AI
    • Tactical AI: Reduce overkill percentage from 50% to 25%. Previously, the AI would gather up much more strength than needed before trying to kill an enemy unit, which could bog down AI operations.
    • Tactical AI: Make sure units moving in formation don't use extra MP to "wander" a tile or two after their primary (formation) move for the turn completes.
    • Operational AI
    • Operational AI: On water maps (Archipelago, Islands, etc.) allow land operations to have a few units "spill out” onto water tiles so the operation doesn't get bogged down trying to get to its target. Also don't use the bigger city attack formation (16 units) on such a map (use 12 instead).
    • Operational AI: Weight barbarian camps within 10 tiles of one of your cities heavily; start up operations to eradicate them quickly.
    • Military AI
    • Military AI: Civs with very high FLAVOR_OFFENSE settings (7+) will buy military units with spare gold more frequently. Will boost the number of early attacks we see, especially on high difficulties.
    • Military AI: when rebasing air units, prioritize carriers within operations over those that aren't assigned to an operation
    • Homeland AI: Fix bug in ExecuteMovesToSafestPlot() where it would consider leftover moves from another unit, meaning the safest plot was not actually chosen. This essentially makes the AI better at determining safe plots to run to when a unit has to flee from danger.
    • Policy/City AI: Added a player strategy to focus on religious buildings and wonders if the AI has started the Piety social policy tree.
    • Diplomacy AI: Increase chance of City-State conquest if that City-State is a neighbor on your way to get to a targeted major power.
    • Ideology AI: If it’s possible to take a Level 3 tenet, make sure the AI always takes the one available that matches their current Grand Strategy choice.
    • Space Race AI: Don't consider capitals to be "medium cities". This change allows AI to start Apollo Program far earlier in Information Age starts where few cities are "Large" until 30+ turns in.
    • Great General AI: Fix rare case of AI trying to plant a Citadel on a tile that already had one.
    • Great Admiral AI
    • Great Admiral AI: The AI now takes advantage of the Transfer Port move to get Great Admirals out of dangerous cities and into the largest bodies of water
    • Great Admiral AI: Have the AI send Great Admirals out with more naval operations; have them stack with friendly units like Great Generals do on land.
    • Great Admiral AI: Improve the operational movement code for admirals to get to their targets.
    • Changed MINIMUM_SETTLE_FERTILITY to 20000, up from 5000 to keep AI civs from settling worthless plots. Added some logging code to track plot values.
    • Congress AI: When an Embargo on an AI player is proposed, that player will always use all of its Delegates towards preventing the Embargo.
    • Archaeology AI: Make it possible that the AI will choose to gain the diplo benefit by turning an antiquity site into a Landmark in city state territory
    • Science AI: upped the flavor numbers on Library, University, Public School, and Laboratory. Removed 'MILITARY_TRAINING' flavor from Library and University. Added culture flavor to University to support Archaeologist generation.

    • Players joining multiplayer games now delay the transition to the staging room until they have completely registered with the game.

    [BUGS]
    • Fixed an issue where you receive a Free Building in a city that had hard built the same building. Before the hard-built building would be sold off (deleting its effect) but due to a logic area the effects for the same (free) building would not be reapplied. Should fix Aqueducts from the Tradition finisher, Broadcast Towers from CN Tower, etc.
    • Fixed an issue causing Indonesia to get unique luxuries when acquiring a city on another continent through conquest or trade.
    • Statue of Libery +1 production now applies to Writer and Musician specialists
    • Fixed a World Congress AI logic error where the number of Great Person improvements a player owned was counted incorrectly.
    • Fixed a World Congress AI logic error which had cultural players valuing some resolutions less than they should.
    • Mongol Scenario: restore custom names for at start Mongol units.
    • Fixed a bug where gold per turn gained from resolutions would not be displayed correctly. There are no resolutions that give gold per turn, but modders can use it.
    • The denouncement counter (Declare War pop-up) now properly counts down rather than always reporting 49.
    • Make Harbor tooltip consistent with other buildings such as Markets and Banks (they all say “additional 1 Gold” instead of 2 gold – this is then multiplied by 2 before the final gold amount is listed for a SEA trade route).
    • Fixed an issue where the total number of techs a player could steal was being zeroed out prematurely, causing the tech steal to never resolve.
    • Properly enforce restriction that you can't found a pantheon when a religion has been enhanced and a number of pantheons have been created equal to the maximum number of religions allowed on that size map.
    • Tutorials – The tutorials now enforce that only the base game rules and UI are used for tutorials.
    • Additional misc bug fixes.
    • AI embarked civilian units could plunder enemy trade routes. This has been fixed.
    • Muliplayer: Fixed an early-game OoS (followed by a broken match) that could occur when playing between a player running DX9 and a player running DX11 on certain maps.
    • An AI gifted City-State (or city) could cause a game hang if the player did not make their choice immediately (liberate, puppet, etc.) because if you paused, and then liberated, you could get a production prompt for the city which you no longer owned, blocking turn progress. This is now fixed.
    • Fix a bug that could prevent paratrooper from appearing after AI moves and was causing planes from not fading out after re-basing.
    • Fix a bug that could cause existing pre-patch saves to sometimes display “1 turn to construct Fishing Boats” on Tundra tiles in the tool-tip. Note, if you have already saved your game with this glitch already in place, you're stuck with it, but it's benign.
    • UI: Fixed the logic for calculating the total number of original capital cities a team owns and determine if there is a clear winning team.
    • UI: Fixed logic to make sure we always designate one player as "winning" with most original capitals controlled in the notification (which makes this consistent with the Victory screen).
    • UI: Fixed "Discuss" UI so you cannot ask for a DOF when one is already in place.
    • Crash fix: If you find a Great Work of Writing and don't have a Writing slot available, UI would incorrectly check if you had an Art slot (instead of Writing slot) available before deciding to give you the choice to take the writing back home (instead of the Cultural Renaissance). But if you made this choice and no slot was available the game would crash.
    • Multiplayer: Waiting for Player tooltip now shows "Unmet" for the civilization of unmet human players.
    • Multiplayer: Making the dedicated server be windowed by default to prevent a crash that occurs if you start the pitboss server over a remote desktop connection while in fullscreen. If you are already encountering the error, open your GraphicSettingsDX9.ini, and set FullScreen = 0.
    • Multiplayer: Fixed an issue where Players were unable to open incoming diplo proposals in multiplayer if they had already made a proposal of their own.
    • Multiplayer: In hotseat games, diplomacy with Player 0 could block diplomacy for other human players.
    • Windows 8 touch: Steam Layer in-game (for inviting friends to MP, etc.) was not usable. Finger clicks would read in the game even if the in-game Steam Layer was up. This has been corrected.
    • Fixed an issue causing a slow-down in turn times.
    • Score for being able to bully a city-state is now more determined by military units near the city-state and less determined by player's global military ranking.
    • Players were getting public declarations from unmet civs (like minor state protection declarations) that revealed the player name.
    • Germany: Fix the German Hanse so its bonus only reflects production.
    • UI: There were two fishing actions visible on the Sailing tech. This is now corrected.
    • UI: Adjusted the logic for calculating turns left for next social policy (was sometimes off by 1).
    • UI: Fixed a few popup dialogs that were not correctly triggering the PopupShown message.
    • Multiplayer: Reconnecting players would revert to the default multiplayer handicap. We now cache the handicap of the last human player to occupy a civilization.
    • Multiplayer: Invites to standard internet multiplayer games were only bringing the player to the main menu if they accepted when the game was not running.
    • Modding: Exposed CvPlot:GetPurchaseCityID and CvPlot:SetPurchaseCityID to Lua.
    • Several fixes to Lua loops that were not taking into account that Lua's for is a <= and not a <.
    • AI embarked civilian units could plunder enemy trade routes. This has been fixed.
    • Muliplayer: Fixed an early-game OoS (followed by a broken match) that could occur when playing between a player running DX9 and a player running DX11 on certain maps.
    • An AI gifted City-State (or city) could cause a game hang if the player did not make their choice immediately (liberate, puppet, etc.) because if you paused, and then liberated, you could get a production prompt for the city which you no longer owned, blocking turn progress. This is now fixed. To work around it for now, make your choice quickly.
