    No. It hasn't been released yet. This is the initial download to spread out the load for Steam at release.

    It also allows people with slow internet connections to get the download completed by the release date.

    Just played a few turns, the game's much snappier than previously: faster turn times (especially the city-state turns), graphics seem more stable (they don't reload the terrain if I'm away from that portion of the map for a while) - though I'm not always getting the partially-built-farm graphic - and the graphic updates look very nice indeed.

    Thanks for the explanation. :beer:

    Very cool.:D

    So a fully executed byzantine religion will have 2 pantheons, 2 follower beliefs, 1 founder belief, 1 enhancer belief, 1 reformation belief, plus 1 belief of any category! :eek:

    I would say your interpretation of that code is correct. Interesting!

    Sweet mother of God, Byzantium is going to be so much more fun to play now!

    I can confirm this as it's stated in the description texts.

    <Row Tag="TXT_KEY_BUILD_CHATEAU_HELP">
    <Text>Constructs a Chateau which increases the Culture and Gold yield of the tile. Also provides a defensive bonus.</Text>
    </Row>
    <Row Tag="TXT_KEY_BUILD_CHATEAU_REC">
    <Text>A Chateau must be built adjacent to a Luxury resource. It may not be adjacent to another Chateau.[NEWLINE][NEWLINE]It will increase the Culture and Gold yield of the tile. Also provides a defensive bonus.</Text>

    I loaded up a game in the mid-200s.

    The game now processes turns too quickly for me to read the text showing which player it is calculating for. That's an extraordinary performance increase.

    Sadly it broke my saved game. It got stuck in a diplomacy screen when you have two lines to choice from (neither of the lines work). I haven't started a new game so I haven't tested if this is only to (some) saved game, or if the patch is buggy.

    Can you post this save where we can grab it? We'd love to take a look. Thanks!

    If you navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization V\Assets\DLC\Expansion2\Gameplay\XML\Leaders you can see all the AI biases of the new civs. Interestingly enough, Dandolo has a very low war bias of 3, against much of the prediction for him. Shaka of course has 8.

    Cool that you're here, Dennis :)
    Love the improvements (playing a singleplayer LAN-game, it's great so far! Definitely smoother on my old laptop)

    Edit:
    And for the people that wonder why I'm playing a single player Lan game: I mostly play multiplayer, singleplayer LAN is my training ground)

    Started a new Immortal game. Now, I am a little rusty for sure, but the combat AI has definitely improved when trying to take a city. They focus on damaging the city rather than messing with your nearby injured units. Very kool! Good job Firaxis!

    MP works fine. A little slow before you can start moving units around, but other than that everything is faster. And everything looks better as well!

    AND FINALLY WE CAN PLAY CUSTOM MAPS!!
    Wife was so happy about this! She loves making maps.

    The patch is rather buggy. The downtime between turns has decreased dramatically (good!), but I keep getting stuck on leaderscreens (bad!).

    Darn, I preordered but only got the standard patch. I was looking forward to hearing some of the music. :mad: :mad:

    Get a savegame ready and an elaboration of the issues (what did you do, when did it happen, etc.), and maybe your system specs, this will help the team :)
    The patch is just a few hours out. Don't know when 'last night' was, but if it's more than a few hours it's probably not related to the patch :)

    Hang on - my patch is just downloading now. So this happened last night, *before* the patch. Weird that two of us got it at the same time.:confused:
