    Very excited to get to grips with it. I like the new feature of choosing a starting specialist. Is it intentional that the leaders no longer have specific traits?

    Yes, it is. Like that, we don't choose Europeans from their "powers" :)

    I hope will like this version. Don't hesitate to give your feed back. Just for your information, we would like to do the version 5.1 in July.

    I am still working on the next version (5.10)
    I have seen a lot of issues on the 5.00 and I can asure you that the new version will be really more complex and interesting than the current version.
    AI will be stronger :p

    The release date should be the begin of July.

    Hi M07. I've got a question. Is it possible to play in single player in DaoNE v5? Beacause i try and i'm afraid that AI doesn't use Agronomists? Is that right? BTW nice job :)

    I am fairly certain I have seen the AI use planted crops.. How well they use the agronomist I am not sure. However I have played against the AI and it seems to be more competitive than other Col AIs.

    Hello,
    Be sure now AI can do it. I am not sure about the 4.00 version.

    Hello,
    I have downloaded your mod but I cannot play with it, (last patch of Colonization is installed):
    I can begin a game without problem, but when I decide to send a boat after a few turns of game in a square which permits to go to Europe, the game crashes immediately when the boat reach this type of square, and so I cannot play .. What is going wrong ?
