    Well, it's not the first 1.3 thread, but I decided this deserves it's own.

    - Lowered almost all leaders' willingness to vassalize voluntarily
    - Venetian AI's favourite civic is Trade Economy (they start in Merchant Republic)
    - Increased Cordoban leaders' religion flavor, they will spread out Islam better
    - Lowered Orthodoxy spread values for Scandinavian civs, increased them in the eastern regions (Bulgaria, Novgorod, Kiev)
    - Muscovy spawn zone reduced in the north, so Novgorod gets a chance to be an early rival for Muscovy
    - Lithuanian spawn zone reduced around Riga and the Prussian core territory, but enlarged on the east, so Minsk flips to them
    - Updated Lithuanian, Swedish, Spanish, English, and Hungarian respawn zones
    - Revised visibility map for all civs
    - Revised the initial contacts between all civs
    - Revised AI war initialization for all players

    -- Bulgaria starts without missionaries or Orthodoxy as a State Religion
    -- Novgorod starts without missionaries or Orthodoxy as a State Religion, and under the Paganism civic
    -- France starts without Catholicism as a State Religion, but only because doesn't have Theology thus the needed civic, so it still has a missionary (only exception)
    -- Denmark starts under the Paganism civic
    - Burgundy starts with preset civics
    - Cordoba starts with Literature (thus they can use the Religious Law civic on start)
    - Cordoba starts with Arabic Medicine (health is important for 1st UHV, also somewhat historic and in synergy with the UP)

    UHV updates:

    - Enhancements in the events when you accomplish 2 of your UHV goals: maximum 3 of your rivals declare war, new event messages for the player
    - Fixed UHV condition display on the Victory Screen for more complex UHVs

    - Removed some redundant info from the UHV texts (details are in the victory screen)
    - New UHV help for the 1st Polish UHV
    - All UHV colony checks are handled on project built (instead of every turn), should make checks much faster (except for the Spanish UHV, which is only checked on a given turn)
    - Trading companies don't count as colonies for the UHV anymore
    - Revised Colony UHVs:
    -- France: Empire of the World: Build 5 Colonies
    -- Spain: The Spanish Armada: Have more Colonies than any other nation in 1588AD (while having at least 3)
    -- Venice: Domination of the World Ocean: Be the first to build a modern Colony (so Vinland doesn't count)

    -- Dutch: The India Companies: Build 3 Colonies and complete both Trading Companies

    - Disabled UHV checks for the AI (faster turn times)
    - Updated Hungarian territory UHV check, now it's province based and totally accurate
    - Kiev needs 25000 food for the 3rd UHV, but their 2nd UHV also has Moscow province

    Indies and barbs:
    - Added reduce city mechanics (to towns) on a given turn or event - could be useful for many UHVs
    - Indy city in Svealand province: Uppsala, spawns in 800AD
    - Indy city in East Anglia province: Norwich, spawns in 640AD
    - Indy city in Mercia province: Nottingham, spawns in 867AD
    - York (Eboracum) starts in 500AD
    - Uppsala reduced to town on the Swedish spawn, Norwich and Nottingham on the English spawn
    - Revised barb spawns:
    -- Further separated barbs for the human and the AI
    -- AI civs won't get extra barbarians on harder levels. Also somewhat less extra barbs for the human player on harder levels
    -- Slightly tuned down general number of barbs for Byzantium, France, Cordoba
    -- 3 new unit types: Bedouin, Turcoman Horse Archer, Steppe Horse Archer
    -- More variety in the Seljuk units (4 new units, all unique to the Seljuks, most are somewhat more powerful than their regular counterparts)
    -- Lowered Seljuk Lancer's (RFCE's "original" Seljuks) strength from 13 to 11, but Seljuks are still harder to counter because of the new unit types
    -- Livonian Order as barbs (Sword Brethren) in the area before the Prussian spawn
    -- Pre-Lithanian barbs (Baltic Heathens) for human Prussia a couple turns before the Lithuanian spawn
    -- Banu Hilal and Bani Hassan barbs in Morocco and Tunesia (Bedouins)

    -- Both Pechenegs and Cumans+Kipchaks are represented with Steppe Horse Archer units
    -- Revised Khazars too, more infantry units instead of light cavalry
    -- Barbarian Serbs in the Balkans before the Byzantine 2nd UHV, especially for the human player
    -- Barbarian Anglo Saxons spawning in Wessex and Mercia to represent the resistance to Danish rule
    -- Barbarian Scottish Highlanders only spawn when Scotland is dead
    -- Barbarian Vikings in the 9-10th century, in small numbers for the AI (and only if the player is not Norway), but a bigger threat to human France
    -- Revised some areas of the Mongol spawn zone, for example no Keshiks directly for Novgorod
    -- Less barbs in the Maghreb, in Arabia, and near Kiev
    - New independent city: Londinium. Starts in 500 AD, size 2, 2 archers, catholic religion, prebuilt walls
    - New independent city: Caen. Starts in 912 AD (establishment of the Duchy of Normandy), size 1, 2 crossbowman, catholic religion
    - Catalonia province won't revolt against Aragon, Scotland province won't revolt against Scotland
    - The city of Novgorod no longer spawn a couple turns before the Novgorodian start, no preplaced Marrakesh either
    - Reduced chance of cultural flips for barbarian cities - especially important in Anatolia for the former Byzantine cities
    - Reduced raze city probability for the AI, bigger reduction for the barbarians, small for the rest

    Stability:
    - Minor changes in the collapse mechanics - should be somewhat more common for the AI to collapse, if they lose a significant part of their territory
    - City secession has much bigger chance to occur for all civs
    - Losing your capital results in a much bigger stability hit (20 for Byzantium, 5 for Scotland, 10 for everyone else)
    - Losing a city in your core or historical territory also means a bigger stability hit
    - Revised initial stability for the different difficulty levels
    - Rewrote most triggers for stability collapses and revolts:
    -- In huge empires, if stability is bad, there is 80% for the city revolt mechanics to start, and only 10% for the collapse mechanics
    -- In medium empires, 40% for the city revolt mechanics, 40% for the collapse mechanics
    -- In small empires, 70% chance for collapse mechanics, no chance for city revolt mechanics
    -- Actual chance for triggering a revolt or collapse inside those mechanics is scaling with stability
    -- Note that bad stability is not the only way to trigger collapses or revolts
    - Having a city in a foreign province means -5 stability, in a border/contested province -2 stability
    - Small boost to Merchant Republic and Bureaucracy stability, but both can be more unstable than before with too many cities
    - Imperialism civic and the French UP works without a hard cap on number of cities
    - Fixed inconsistencies in the city stability calculations - way more deadly for the human player if the cities are managed poorly
    - The AI has less severe stability penalties for not maintaining it's cities (populace) well enough
    - Updated the stability guide. Civilopedia/Concepts/Stability Guide
    - New aspect for the Venetian UP: halves instability for having too many cities in Merchant Republic
    - City razing:
    -- Permanent instability: 0 for very small cities, 1 for 3-5 population, 2 for 6-9, 3 for 10+
    -- Temporary instability: 3
    -- Norwegian UP: -1 permanent stability loss and no temporary instability for razing cities
    - Reduced permanent stability loss from anarchies
    - Stability always updates when entering the stability/finances (F2) screen
    - Minor improvements in the stability code, fixing various python exceptions
    - Fixed bug in the stability handicap levels (+2 base stability on monarch)
    - Tuned down unintentionally harsh stability penalties connected to war weariness (4-7 stab difference for medium sized-empires)
    - Increased culture instability in newly conquered cities (less than 20% own culture)
    - Small stability boost on completed UHVs (currently +3/UHV)
    - Vassalage is stable with Feudal Law, Common Law is unstable with Serfdom, Imperialism is unstable with Merchant Republic
    - Increased stability bonus for "good" civic combinations, also decreased a couple penalties for using "wrong" combinations

    Persecution updates:
    - Loot is significantly increased when you successfully purge a religion
    - -3 swing instability on successful persecution (0 for Spain)
    - Unhappiness because of persecution ("We cannot forget your cruel oppression") only appears in the city on successful persecution
    - Persecution counter/timer reintroduced, with a new approach:
    -- Nationwide variable, goes down by 1 each turn
    -- New counter for it on the main screen (Persecution, only shown if >0, right below the faith point counter)
    -- +8 to the counter on successful persecution (4 for Spain), 4 on unsuccessful (2 for Spain)
    -- Causes religious instability, 1 with 1-3, 2 with 4-6, 3 with 7-9, etc.
    -- The timer (Persecution Instability Cooldown), and the caused instability (Persecution Instability) are also shown in the Religion Screen (F7)
    - Even with the increased instability from religious prosecution, still way better to persecute than to leave untolerated religions in your cities

    Crusades:
    - Increased number of units leaving the civs for a crusade, but it's low on the first 10-20 turns after a civ is born
    - Also, more crusader units will leave your army
    - Some of the units will return from all Crusades after a couple turns, not only if Jerusalem is conquered
    - No more free Templars/Teutons/Paladins/Knights for the base crusader army if the crusading civ doesn't know Chivalry yet
    - No longer possible for your GG units to leave you for a crusade
    - Slightly reduced number of units for Defensive Crusades

    - Updated Great Person lists
    - Updated the RFCE Timeline

    - Kiev moved to 882 AD (text only though, so no changes in the gameturn)
    - Added an extra aspect to the Cordoban UP: excess health contributes to city growth, but only if it's not starving (idea from DoC) - perfect for the 1st UHV
    - Less resistance on city conquest: multiple things affecting it, but usually around 1 turn with 1-2 population, 2 turns with 3-5, 3 with 6-9, 4 with 10-14, 5 with 15+

    Will also post the changes between RFCE 1.1 and RFCE 1.2 here, for completeness' sake:
    Spoiler :
    Stability improvements:
    - Province stability levels:
    -- Core: Your core area; very stable, but huge stability penalty if someone else has a city there
    -- Natural: Your historically stable area; stability bonus for cities there, but also small penalty if it's not yours
    -- Potential: Your potentially stable area; becomes a Natural province when you settle or conquer a city there, but no penalties until this happens
    -- Border: Outer or contested area; small initial stability penalty for expanding there
    -- Foreign: Unstable area; large stability penalty and revolt risk for having cities there
    -- Removed Desired province type altogether
    - Stability Overlay:
    -- Color code for the provinces: Cyan for Core, Green for Natural, Yellow for Potential, Orange for Border, Red for Foreign
    -- The overlay may be toggled with it's button above the minimap, or with the Ctrl+K key combination
    -- It shows all province tiles color-coded on the map, including mainland water tiles (fresh and salt water lakes)
    -- When the overlay is up, there is a civ choosing table above the overlay button, so you can check province stability level for all civs, not just for yourself!!
    -- The overlay dynamically refreshes when a province's stability is changed for any of the civs
    -- Province border functions (ctrl + hover on the map) moved to python from the dll, easier to costumize this way
    -- Province borders got the same color code as they have in the stability overlay (but obviously it always shows the stability level of the civ you play with)
    -- Provinces are only colored and showed inside your visible area (both in the overlay and with ctrl + hovering) intentionally, so they may show up partly
    - Tweaked the existing secession mechanics:
    -- Instead of total collapses, there is way more chance for a single city to declare independence
    -- Only one city can revolt in a turn, if it happens, there is no chance for collapse for the given civ
    -- May happen even with -1 stability, the chance for it starts very low, but exponentially increasing with lower stability
    -- Chance that one of your cities will declare independence is around 2% with -1 stability, around 25% with -6 stability, around 80% with -12 stability
    -- If a city does declare it's independence, one of your cities will be randomly chosen (any city can be chosen if it's not close to your capital)
    -- Cities in Natural or Core provinces may only be chosen if happiness or health is too low, or with some specific anger modifiers (religion, no military presence, etc)
    -- Cities in Border provinces have 4x chance, cities in Foreign provinces have 9x chance to be chosen, than your cities in more stable areas
    - Increased stability penalty for having cities in Foreign provinces
    - Revised all civs' initial province stabilty levels, and all the dynamic province stability level changes. Some highlights:
    -- Expanded and/or increased almost all civs' province stability to some extent, especially for Byzantium, the Ottomans and Kiev
    -- Byzantium keeps many of their previously important provinces as Border provinces (including southern Italy and the African coastline), for the human player
    -- Both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Islands (Azores, Madeira, Canaries, Balears, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, Malta, Crete, Rhodes, Cyprus) are better for many civs
    -- A couple more dynamic stability level changes, especially around the new provinces, in Central Europe and the Balkans, and for Byzantium
    -- France and Burgundy almost totally complete each other with their potential provinces

    General changes:
    - Spawn of Arabia moved back one turn (632AD), Ottoman spawn one turn earlier (1356AD)
    - Venetian and Genoan spawn moved one turn later (it's better for their historical spawn dates of 810AD and 1016AD)
    - Fixed starting date for Spain - 910AD, Germany - 856AD (though both start in the same turn as before)
    - Interface message when a resource appears/disappears within your cultural borders
    - Interface message when wonders are destroyed/captured by you, by a known civilization, or from a known civilization
    - Interface message for the preset religion spreads (same way as it is when religions spread "normally")
    - Judaism got an additional random spread mechanics, with bigger chance for spreading in central european cities
    - Dead civs won't show up on the scoreboard anymore
    - Autoraze changes: if the city has 1 population, 60% chance to autoraze if culture is less than 10, 30% chance to autoraze if culture is at least 10 but less than 50
    - All naval units can cross cultural borders during peace (without open borders), except work boats (to avoid exploration with work boats)
    - Diagonal water tiles are passable for all naval units. The most important straits are represented this way on the map
    - Removed 3Miro's AI regions, seriously hurt AI civs on the border of 2 regions, also every AI civ's units with somewhat automated functions (barbs, workers, missionaries, GPs, etc.)
    - Ottomans spawn in Gallipoli (Dardanelles), so they have a connection between Europe/Anatolia. No second spawn stack needed, and Adrianople/Edirne doesn't flip to them
    - Edirne becomes the Ottoman Capital if they conquer it before Constantinople, Constantinople becomes the Ottoman Capital whenever they conquer it (without stability hit)
    - The Wattasid revolt moved to Fez province, so now Tanja in the Tetouan province (city on the African part of Gibraltar, with AA) is relatively safe
    - Added compatibility for the Latin-1 set for provinces, so we can have all Latin-1 characters in the province names
    - Minimal wait between revolutions is increased to 10 turns - both for civic and religion changes
    - Culture modifiers per province type: all civs get 1/3 culture in unstable, 2x in solid, and 3x in core provinces
    - Introduction of a new, generic city name map, which will be the base for all the other ones
    - Adjusted visibility map for Poland, Hungary, England, Germany, Burgundy, Genoa and Spain
    - Lowered the happiness modifiers (base happiness in your cities) for all difficulty levels: 4 for Viceroy, 3 for Monarch, 2 for Emperor
    - Various small tweaks in many balance aspects of the different difficulty levels (mostly for Viceroy and Emperor). Research, inflation, AI costs, etc.
    - Greatly reduced the barbarian number difference between Monarch and Emperor, and between Monarch and Viceroy
    - Switched bonus of Westminster Abbey (now enables all Religion Civics) and Golden Bull (now enables all Labor Civics)
    - Restored Pinch promotion

    Map and province changes:
    - Huge changes in the SE region: Egypt, Levant and Anatolia totally revised
    - Smaller changes in the northern coast of the Black Sea, and in the south Balkans
    - Revised rivers in Hungary (Danube, Drava, Szava, Koros) and south Poland (added river San), small terrain changes in the borders of the Carpathian-basin
    - Removed the "lakes" (scattered coastline) from Dalmatia, it was strange with the new strait mechanics. Lake Scutari remains on the coast though
    - Damascus is finally moved to a geographically more correct place (3S), obviously the Arabian spawn moved here
    - The new map resulted in moving Jerusalem (1SW) and Constantinople (1S) too, along with almost all the preplaced Byzantine cities
    - Changes in the preplaced Byzantine cities: Amastris instead of Nicaea (too close to Constantinople), Edessa instead of Aleppo (too close to Antioch)
    - The most important remaining Byzantine cities (not preplaced in 500AD) are represented by towns: Nicomedia, Nicaea, Ephesus, Abydos, Ancyra, Attaleia, Aleppo, Trapezus
    - New indy city Ras instead of Belgrad, spawns in 768 with the Serbian Principality (Rascia). Rhodes spawns as indy in 600 AD (Nomos Rhodion Nautikos)
    - Egyptian city sites revised as well - realistic place for Alexandria, Cairo and Damietta, with better terrain and resource placement
    - Balancing early food production near Constantinople, Alexandria and the Cordoban starting area - to be possible to make Cordoba the largest city for their 1st UHV
    - Now that culture is passable on the sea, Orkney is back on the map
    - Added the Dardanelles strait to the map, so the Ottoman spawn doesn't have to be separated into an Anatolian and European part
    - Added the Oresund strait to the map - connecting Denmark and Norway will seriously strengthen the Norse AI
    - New indy cities: Seville (spawns in 500AD as Hispalis, flips to Cordoba), Fez (780 AD), Beloozero (800 AD), Tanais (1392 AD, Timurid conquest)
    - New indy cities: Graz (spawns in 1110AD, flips to Austria), Kalmar (spawns in 1050AD, flips to Sweden), Vologda is removed for now
    - Added salt lakes (mesosaline and hypersaline) to the mod: Dead Sea near Jerusalem, Lake Tuz in Anatolia - same yield as coast
    - Red Sea (the visible parts in RFCE) and Sea of Marmara are now coastal ocean tiles, instead of being fresh water lakes due to their small size
    - The eastern part of the Black Sea got a line of coast tiles, the actual coast is only 1-2 tiles away anyway, and this way early ships can pass there too
    - New provinces: Banat (representing the southern Banates of medieval Hungary), Holstein (buffer province between Denmark and Germany, also helps in the French first UHV)
    - New provinces: Prussia (for the Teutonic Order/Prussia civ), Liguria (better to have a separate province because of the French UHV)
    - Lots of small province adjustments: primarly near the new provinces, in the Austrian territories, in Scandinavia, and in the Polish-Lithuanian-Kievan territories
    - Province Croatia merged into Slavonia, province adjustment in the area - the Dalmatian coast will be better shaped (culturally between Venice and Hungary or Austria)
    - Both Alba Iulia / Gyulafehervar and Lubeck spawns 1 tile north, to follow the province changes
    - Small resource rearrangement in Greece/Southern Balkans, and in the Levant/Arabia

    XML and text updates:
    - Cities built outside the corresponding CityNameMap will get a civ specific name (no Persian names for Bulgaria for example)
    - Portuguese translations by Spirictum
    - Rome renamed to Papal States
    - Spelling mistake fix: Austria is called Ostmark instead of Östmark when vassal of Germany
    - RFCE specific help texts for the handicap levels
    - Translations for the Scottish and Magyar/Hungarian unit sounds
    - Province Oppland renamed to Jämtland, Charsiakon corrected to Charsianon, Gotaland to Götaland, Osterland to Österland
    - Improvements in the crusade texts
    - German text fixes by Simplicissimus
    - New city name map for England and Muscovy by iOnlySignIn
    - German/Austrian city name map updates by 2phunkey4u and DC123456789

    - Updates in some crusading civs' city name maps in the Levant/Egypt/Anatolia
    - Changed the order of the Polish, Burgundian, Kievan and Hungarian UHVs
    - Minor fixes in the Dawn of Civilization texts
    - Civ-specific and UHV updates in the reference texts
    - Texts connected to Province stability also got the new province color-code
    - Changed the Genoan trade UHV text to be more clear
    - Byzantine, Arabian/Cordoban, Ottoman, French/Burgundian, Venetian, Norse, Hungarian, Spanish city name maps updated by DC123456789
    - Minor updates to the Dutch, Hungarian and Bulgarian city name maps
    - Renamed preset Byzantine cities to their Greek names (Konstantinoupolis, Alexandreia, Hierosolyma, Antiocheia, Tyros, Thessaloniki, Ikonion, etc.)
    - French entries for Harald Hardrada, Maximilian, Abu Bakr, Yaqub al-Mansur, Muscovy

    Art and sound updates:
    - Added theme files for the mod
    - New HUD button for the corporation/company screen
    - Austria has german unit sounds instead of the HRE ones
    - Lithuania has polish unit sounds instead of russian (until we manage to get proper lithuanian sounds)
    - New Scottish voice set by Annomander
    - Irish Brigade got Celtic sounds, Highlander and Highlander Infantry got Scottish sounds
    - New art for Westminster Abbey and Krak des Chevaliers by hrochland
    - Added a second art type for Dense Forests
    - New LH art for Istvan, Yaroslav

    Balance:
    - Moved spawn area of Germanic Barbarians west, now some of them will actually attack France instead of wandering in Germany
    - Minor tweaks to the French and Cordoban barb spawns, further separating it for the human and the AI player, less barbs for AI Arabia
    - Lowered barbarian activity in the North African area (now that barbs can attack targets farther away it could be overpowered on the African coastline)
    - Slightly lowered the base duration of the occupation resistance
    - Removed free wins against barbarians - this means some of the early barbs might have to be rebalanced
    - Increased the maximum XP you can get from barbarians (not from a single battle, the total XP) - was 10, now there is no cap
    - Lowered preset diplomacy modifiers, overkill to have 10+ relations there
    - Now that free wins are removed, early barbs for Byzantium are somewhat reduced for the human player
    - Plague of Constantinople will hit Byzantium earlier than before (late 6th century), thus it won't hit on the very same turns as the Arab spawn
    - The French got some additional starting units (1 settler, 1 archer and 2 axemen)

    -- Templar Kinght (+1 first strike), Janissary (-2 first strike, +50% vs heavy cavalry, free march and cover promotion), Black Guard (can twarth spies, +25% city attack),

    -- La Mezquita (-100 production cost, +1 free specialist, -1 gold from state religion buildings), Magellan's Voyage (-1 trade routes from coastal cities, +2 xp for naval units),
    -- St. Basil's Cathedral (available with Chemistry, -10% GP modifier, -1 free specialist, +1 spy slot, +2 espionage points from state religion buildings), St. Sophia (-1 priest slot),
    -- Cluny Abbey (+1 free priest), Palais des Papes (+2 happiness), San Marco Basilica (+2 trade routes, -30% trade route yield, -1 free merchant), Alhambra (cost increased by 50),
    -- St. Peter's Basilica (no unhappiness in the city), Torre de Belem (-2 gold for water tiles, -1 free merchant)
    - The German first and third UHV requires Holstein too, the Ottoman first UHV requires Banat, and the Hungarian anti-Ottoman UHV requires Banat and Slavonia
    - Holstein and Prussia also count in the Swedish third UHV, Prussia also counts in the Polish first UHV
    - Minor changes in the defensive crusades, also updated them with the new provinces

    - Flanders and Netherlands provinces change to Border/Contested for Austria and Spain upon the Austrian spawn (Habsburgs), changes to Foreign after the Dutch spawn

    - Bulgaria starts with an Orthodox Missionary, and an additional Archer
    - Somewhat reduced barb pressure for Arabia (both Beduins and Seljuks)
    - Minor changes in the barbarian spawns for Bulgaria, Kiev and France (reducing barb pressure in the first few turns)
    - Moved back the spawn interval of the second Mongol invasion (Timurids), so it won't happen right at the Ottoman spawn

    Bugfixes:
    - A couple fixes how the mercenary screen is called from the main screen mercenary manager button
    - Fixed sound issues for Venice and Genoa
    - Fixed bug where Judaism didn't spread to a second city in Poland
    - Fixed stability calculating issue when some of the stability giving wonders were razed
    - Fixed viewing issues with the GlobeView layers - now everything shows up without any problems
    - Revised the hidden attitude modcomp, now every part of it should work (show up) correctly
    - Fixed issue where AI built large number of settlers but didn't use them, also improvements in the settler move code
    - Fixed critical bug, which caused most early autorun CTDs! - thanks to edead
    - Fixed issue where all islands had the same area ID (which caused serious problems for the AI when to use naval/land movement)

    - Fixed mistake where you couldn't build protestant missionaries without Seminaries under the Religious Law civic
    - Fixed issue where some of the python scripts couldn't handle Latin-1 characters
    - Fixed "display bug" with the initial Byzantine stability
    - Fixed serious bug in the secession mechanics (lose a single city if stability is too low), which basically prevented it from happening
    - Fixed bug in secession provinces, where outer (ok) provinces had very low chance, while some of the historical (stable) provinces had decent chance
    - Fixed bug where Hanseatic Executives couldn't pass straits, or enter into foreign territory without open borders
    - Fixed victory screen for Burgundy and Poland, improved the way their victory conditions show up
    - Fixed bug with automatic capital changes for the Ottomans (only changes to Edirne if you don't have Istanbul)

    About further development, some things that are definitely planned for 1.4:
    SoI-style companies

    Map/province updates
    Various UHV changes
    And probably fixing tons of issues and bugs :p

    As I found a serious bug connected to stability calculation/refreshment, will upload a small patch in a couple days, as RFCE 1.3.1.
    Until then try not to use the F2 screen too excessively, it can result in some extra stability penalties.

    Check out RFCE 1.3.1, just uploaded it to SourceForge:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/rfceurope/files/RFCEurope_1.3.1_patch.zip/download

    This is meant as a patch for 1.3, so no new features, didn't even include the test version of the 1200AD scenario file.
    That will come in a more developed form in 1.4, along with the new company system and some other announced things.

    For updating your mod to 1.3.1: just copy over the RFCEurope folder in the zip (on your existing RFCEurope folder of RFCE 1.3), and overwrite all files.
    Hopefully I didn't miss any recently changed files, there were quite a few :crazyeye:

    Sry everyone, should have done this 2 weeks ago... :blush:
    I always forget that not everyone prefers to use the SVN version.

    Anyway, whoever experiences crashes with version 1.3 or 1.3.1, with these new .dll files you can most likely continue your game!
    Didn't bother with adding the updated source files, only included the updated .dll for both versions.
    So there is only one file in the zip, just overwrite the CvGameCoreDLL.dll with it in the folder: ...\Mods\RFCEurope\Assets
