    No, no, you got it all wrong, silly! @Stalker0 has been a trustworthy memeber of the VP community since the beginning and he knows where our sense of duty and priorities are. He would never abandon us for some silly vacation. (It was a joke, man :) )

    The performance/etc fixes really helped with late game stabilty. 360 turns in on Epic, no crashes whatsoever - and that's on a hard-on-memory 4UC mod. Even slowdowns are mostly gone now, I'm pounding AIs with vicious abandon and getting rewarded for it. Good job here Gazebo, you truly are a wizard of dark coding magic.

    Don’t give just me thanks, 99% of performance improvements are tactical AI changes, so that’s @ilteroi.

    Although I will take credit for the pillaging. Lamentations!

    Ilteroi's done a glorious job, then. True wizardry of great stability, incomprehensible for uncoding mortals.

    AI's pillaging is way more rational as well, since that's been mentioned. They do it now when there's a chance, and something behind my lines is a problem.

    I seem to recall some users saying it was 'impossible' for the AI to ever pillage well. Pie on their faces! Pie on all of you! Sweet glorious pillager's pie! Mwaha.

    I won't stop until all of your cities burn.

    Amazingly, there can be more than one. We tend to move on different parts of the code though.

    Think he missed it the first two times, but might see this one? Or are you just telling him how to run his mod?

    I mentioned a hotfix, but that wasn't a promise to upload it immediately.

    a.) I work
    b.) yesterday was a long workday
    c.) I'm working on something else for work today, and I'm working with someone else on a UI project that, once that's done, will make for a better hotfix than anything I could have shoveled out beforehand.

    There aren't any major bugs, just a couple of promotion quirks for very lategame air units. Even then, very little is missing. Just play and have fun.

    Given TB's location, it is possible that they are not a native English speaker, and therefore does not have a perfect grip on the nuance and tone implied by his or her words.

    That's fair - don't interpret my tone as hostile or angry, I'm not at all. I just wanted to make clear that it wasn't an oversight on my part, rather a planned delay.

    Sorry that I misunderstood then, your previous reply definitely sounded to me like an “it’s uploaded” notification and not a “it will be included in an upcoming hotfix” post

    I english good

    Alright, just finished up merging ilteroi's small changes. Here's the hotfix (1-29-2):

    https://mega.nz/#F!DMsxkDYI!zSpR9CHpmAfWyIvMXaN3pw

    - Fixes air promotions once and for all
    - Adjusts free interception promotions for Anti-Air/SAM (now start with more interception %)
    - UI adjustments for naval carrier units and missiles
    - Other misc small fixes.

    Note that some changes will only affect newly-created units.

    Cheers,
    G
