Say No 2 Net Validations
Oct 22, 2008
A new update has been posted: https://mohawkgames.com/2022/12/21/old-world-update-102/

Change list:

  • New World Map – Imperium Romanum: The Roman World!
  • New map script – Donut
  • Inland Sea map script updated to give less regular sea and more mountain ranges
  • Free city site location now takes into account distance over land, not distance as the crow flies
  • Events which give traits are no longer blocked when a character already has the trait. They will now give improvements to character ratings instead.
  • Hotseat games with 1 Human player are now treated as Multiplayer games. This fixes teams not starting together in these games.

  • Hotseat games support different languages for each player
  • Added Random Resource and Random Element Names buttons to Map Editor
  • Map start tiles for set maps can now be defined in mapStartTile.xml. This allows modded nations to be given set start points on premade maps.

  • Unit tooltips in city screen now show per-unit cost increase (affects Settlers, Workers and Disciples)
