    • Intrigue Visibility from Palaces was being calculated incorrectly.
    • DiploRelations code that could fail initialization if there was a "break" in major players iteration IDs.

    • Bug related to Ideology #61 that causes to fail initialization or conversion to 5th era. (Manual fix for v20: open "ITGSG_IdeologiesEffects.lua" and comment out line 207 by adding "--" at the beginning)
    • In-game bugs related to invitations to disbanded leagues.
    • Tribe was able to conquer cities (further changes to mechanic in gameplay).

    • (New) Dynamic AI handicap - game will adjust AI handicaps every 5th turn based on player's situation.
    • (New) Blob Territories - alternative script for initial Cities, Forts and Holy Sites.
    Gameplay
    • Trade-Routes now increase Culture and Science per turn rather than grant lump sum of those yields.

    Auction House
    • (New Special Deal) Patronage - allows you to bribe random foreign civilian Great Person to migrate to your empire and stay there.
    • (New Special Deal) Bribe Dignitaries - +100 Influence randomly distributed among City-States at peace (price is attractive in comparision to basic gold gifts; yet distribution is random).
    Controls
    • Added some support for handling unit stacks.
    • While holding Ctrl upon click on following actions: Skip, Sleep, Alert, Fortify, Heal; all your unfortified of the same domain type on the same plot will also issue an order. Additionally holding Alt will ignore unfortified requirement.
    • The same behaviour is introduced for following Interface Modes: MoveTo, Rebase and Paradrop (hold Ctrl upon mouse-left-click). However, in this case secondary orders unfortunately happen on ButtonDown (so be careful) which makes them execute first. It will not work with right-clicking (MoveTo must be accessed from Unit Panel first).
    Fixed Bugs

    • Tithe (league resolution) could be proposed even when already active.
    • Fixed bugs related to Food Distribution law.

    • Fixed insufficient resource amount ending all export of this resource rather than validating each deal in order.
    • Fixed incorrect yield bonus from Labouring Class ideology tenet.
    • Added much better management of temporary modifiers to unit stack type; it should remove any plausible bad interaction.
    Gameplay

Codex strength is now being calculated every 5th turn. Information about the most popular laws' options is now hidden (changing laws to the most popular ones was an easy way to create strong codex, now player has to invest in codex influence).
    • Added new principle slot: Secular. It is available once your state becomes secular (and religious slot is obsolete). It balances out the maximum amount of available principles. Rewards are related to culture generating, reducing cost of cultural bonus and an extra reward from having at least one Academy in top 3 in prestige ranking.
    • Temporary modifiers to currency power now lasts 10 turns (instead 5% fade each turn) - it mainly affects one powerful ideology tenet.
    • In industrial scenario max resource storage was added. Oil and Coal: 1000. Horse and Iron: 50 increased by 5 for every Stable/Forge.
    • City-States will no longer give you an unit if you lack unit supply (cooldown for the next gift is halved in this case).

    • Pillaging tile with strategic resource has chance to grant some amount of it (only during Scenarios in which resource storage is on).
