    Good.

    Warning: unlike all previous patches this one doesn't support games saved in older versions. Must be because of changes in the tech tree.
    Must finish my current game first...

    Can someone start a new game with this patch and tell me if you get the right industrial age tech tree?

    I think you need to delete the Conquests\Art\Advisors\science_industrial.pcx for the tech tree background graphics to display properly.

    The third age of all conquests is messed up too.
    Rename science_industrial.pcx to science_industrial_new.pcx in their scenario folders to make them show the proper tech tree background.

    I don't know this for a fact, but here's a collection of reasons of why I suspect they removed the Radio:

    • With the removal of Electronics from Motorized Transportation, the lower branch of the tech tree became less improtant than it was before. Therefore, you expect fewer players to choose to research Electronics first than before, and even fewer players to research the Radio anything but last. A technology which would be consistently researched last became expendable.
    • The lower branch of the tech tree became unconnected from the upper branch for four whole technologies (Scientific Method to Radio), that didn't offer many benefits if you lost the race to the big two Wonders of the age. That just looked weird.
    • Before this patch, Advanced Flight was not researched often enough, so the addition of Radar Towers makes this tech more valuable.
    • C3C added two more technologies to the Industrial Age (Fascism and Ironclads), so the period became too long.
