    We're finally here. What is left to do before release:

    1. Address open bug reports. Quite a few have accumulated while I was working on something else, and others are quite old because I deliberately wanted to deal with them when everything else is done.
    2. Some minor changes that do not really belongto one of the big features, mostly from suggestions and my own observations over the course of development.
    3. Merge open pull requests.

    4. Create a release candidate for people to playtest, to make sure there aren't any bugs or glaring balance issues. DoC 1.16 will be feature complete at this point.

    5. Update the modules to be compatible. Fortunately there have already been contributions on github that brought the modules up to date, so that should be very fast this time.
    6. Create the installer and officially upload the final release.

    After that is done, I'll make a post about the plans for 1.17 as usual.

    I am looking through the Civiliepedia's XML file to find the entries that need writing, but I can't find any of the units/wonders without any descriptions. What am I doing wrong?

    Why not open the civilopedia in game and see where something is missing?

    Right, but I thought maybe in creating an entry you would want us to edit the xml file directly.
    I guess I could look things up in the game and then send you a notepad file?

    No, I meant you can see in the pedia where entries are missing and then add them to the XML. If the entry is missing the XML tag that needs to be added should show up in the pedia instead.

    It would be good to update the companies descriptions in the Civilopedia and corporations page, I've seen the Silk Road company and Trading Company spread at times and to places they seemingly shouldn't according to what is written

    Can you be more specific? I don't think I changed anything there.

    Sometime ago I have posted some texts to the Turks in the Turkic Civilization thread that could help.

    Weird things I have seen, important note, I play on Marathon:
    Silk Road says it can't spread after 1500, I've seen it spread past then,
    Trading Company lists civs it can spread to, and that it can't spread after 1800, I've seen it spread after that date, and as Russia I even once had it spread to Moscow, I did have both a trading company wonder in St Petersburg and Trading Company present there

    EDIT: Playing China, in 1381 I had Trading Company expand into Xi'an

    Can you share a save where corporations spread to cities past their expiration date?
