Thanx for the info. Is this patch still on track for release on the 20th or so? I'm planning on starting a new game with the Balance Mod, but I'll wait until tomorrow if the patch is actually due out.

Thanks!

(if present) for combat.

command line execution to run forever.
7. Fixed - In the Designs window, the list will remain highlighted on the old design
when doing an upgrade.

place after selecting a mount.

"3. Fixed - If units have not been given a sector position, then they will be arranged around a warp point

Oooh, requested this so many times. Finally AI satellites will be useful.

"5. Fixed - Speed ups for computer player movement."

Priceless.

Looks like it'll be a neat update. Any ETA? I was hoping there'd be some sort of AI fix for the whole fog of war issues though.

The speed ups don't appear to be all that great so far - but I'll know better later.

Know if it affects the pathfinding for human players too? I.e., the longer routes the slower it travels scenario that exists now.

The latest build:

Version 1.21:
1. Fixed - After a retrofit, ships would only get half movement because they had no crew. The crew
was not restored because the planet had the wrong kind of population. Ships will only
recrew at planets.

instead use the My Documents folder.

4. Fixed - Processing the turn as Host would show and hide the button bar.
5. Fixed - Loading a game from within a game would not launch the login window.

images for an empire cannot be found, the game will pick a new image set for the empire.
7. Fixed - Reduction in combat replay file size.
8. Fixed - An error would occur when a scrap order could not be executed.
9. Fixed - When you save a game manually, the Multiplayer Savegame Filename gets set to that new name.
10. Fixed - A little smoother combat replay.
11. Fixed - Missing ship sets were not being replaced when a host was processing a turn.
12. Fixed - In the Launch/Recover window, recovering more units to a ship than it could hold would cause
the game to lockup.
13. Fixed - Increased the starting size and size increase per level of satellites, mines, and troops.
14. Fixed - Turn-based games on different machines were still showing combats for AI players.
15. Fixed - You cannot select Tactical Combat in a Turn-based different machine game.
16. Fixed - Units in ground combat were never missing.
17. Fixed - Having more than 5 selected victory conditions would crash the Comparisons window.
18. Added - Script function "Sys_Get_Space_Object_Cargo_Item_Design_ID".
19. Fixed - Script function "Sys_Get_Number_Of_Units_In_Space_Sector" was always returning zero.
