    There has been a small bug-fix pushed-out for Civilization V. Not sure if its live in steam yet, but will be very soon.

    Issues fixed include:

    1. Game now runs if user path includes special characters.
    2. AI will now make gold per turn deals in amounts other than 5 GPT.
    3. Open borders is canceled immediately if war is declared and troops in enemy lands displaced.
    4. AI valuation of cities in trades and peace deals improved.
    5. Unit maintenance now scales appropriately in Time Limit games.
    6. Various crash fixes.

    Thanks to Ed Beach (Lead Gameplay-AI Programmer for Civ5) for the info!

    This is good news because the AI was making some pretty ridiculous peace deals. I think it's still going to need better evaluation for resources, though.

    Should this be stickied in the Civ V general? We should probably have an updated patch notes thread stickied there.

    One step at a time. I'd rather they roll out the fixes in small patches every few days than wait a month for a giant patch.

    Also, these might be easy to fix. So sort them fast and do the harder ones later or in parallel but not yet finished.

    Steam's advantage is small patches because they don't require user intervention, it's all automatic. This also means odds are that at some point they will release an update that breaks stuff.

    Was this that small, like 25 mb or so update earlier today? Because if so, I've crashed more since the update than before. Like, after I load a game from the title screen, if I try to load any time after that the game crashes.

    i love firaxis for caring to bother and release a patch so fast,

    its obvious that a game on first release will have bugs, just like creating a mod, it takes a long long time to get everything right.

    thank a lot.


    i cant wait to buy civ5!!!
