    When the patch is actually released (no ETA right now; I'm working on that!) I'll unstick and close this thread.[/QUOTE]

    That's a great list of fixes. No unit cycling ! Most of the annoying, non-stability bugs seem to be on there too. The ability to sell buildings, the engineer boost, wealth production, all great changes :D

    * Workers – Improved the path-finding mechanic when building route-to roads improved, including a large performance increase when evaluating road-pathing.

    I lol if this lowers the game turn switching from 2 minutes to 1 minute after 16th century ad.

    You can't expect to see every issue ironed out in the first substantive patch. For an initial bunch of fixes and balance tweaks this is pretty damn good. It's not unusual for games to be so broken it's just stability and compatibility fixes for more than the first few patches.

    You already know about the longer term goals for future patching if you've read Shafer's posts on quarter to three. Complain if you must, but I see no reason to.

    I was not complaining. I was just expressing my opinion about the patch: good, but not enough. Simple as that.

    ability to sell buildings is very nice. was hoping for more MP improvements, but i suppose we're stuck waiting on the hotseat/PBEM patch for those. *fingers crossed*, hopefully the AI tweaks make a big difference.

    either way, looks like a decent first step.

    This is not the first patch. This is what they have so far that is going into the first patch. Cheer up:D

    There's some good stuff on that list. Good to see the peace treaty and resource bugs fixed.

    Firaxis still has quite a bit to do though.

    * Economy - Can now sell Buildings in a city (to help lower maintenance for obsolete buildings later in the game).

    Yay!

    And what about if AI declare war?
    And ability to sell buildings is not very good and can be exploit that go against the design for planning your buildings.Maybe something like ,when you annex new city to choose what to destroy only.I'm sure that not be able to sell buildings is WAD and now they turn over.

    Wow, great list. This is encouraging. Especially that they're making actual gameplay changes to improve the game at this stage. Very cool, thanks for posting.

    Looks like there are some solid fixes in there, both in terms of bugs and gameplay issues. I'm glad they will be adding the ability to sell buildings...now those conquered AI cities won't be such an economic drain.

    I'm the happiest for the AI and bug changes. Most of my other complaints can be handled by simple mods...this is the hard stuff.

    This is the third published patch ( well, fourth , if you include the fix for Spanish XP users ) and surely the 22th or later patch firaxis develops ( since the last numbering was .20 and there was the Spanish XP fix ) :D

    Anyway it looks that they atleast agreed with me that if buildings can pay maintenance, there needs to be a option to sell them for game balance proposes, even if with a penalty . See , people ? Complaining works :p
