    Known Issues

    You will need to copy the STGradient files in the mods Gfx folder (My Games\GC3 Crusade\Mods\Community Patch\Gfx) to the main games Gfx folder (steamapps\common\Galactic Civilizations III\Gfx). This is due to a bug with GraphicAssets.xml failing to check the mods Gfx folder for new assets.(edited)

    The space elevator replacement for Cybernetic Organisms is just showing the "MatrixAlpha" internal name text instead of converting to the intended text. Getting the same string errors for FarmL1 and MatrixBeta. The strings appear to be defined correctly in the text definition files and called correctly in the improvement definition files.
