Features

  • Removed all tile yields. Cities may be founded whereever, so long as
  • Cities may not be founded within 20 tiles of each other.
  • City promotions have been removed.
  • Any city improvement may be built more than once per city. Therefore,
  • City specializations are determined by the relative acreage of studies, workshops, and archivists you build.
  • Outposts are automatically built on any tile that your sovereign visits.
  • All event notifications output to the DOS console instead of the Fallen Enchantress window.
  • City enchantments, both positive and negative, can only be cast on cities not owned by the casting player.
  • Dynasties have been reinstated. Children now come of age at approximately 1,000 years.
  • Added the War Staff, (25 blunt attack + 100 crit chance)
  • Seagoing pirates have been added, but they are unable to scale cliffs. Or interact with any landlubbers.
  • Unit stats have been restored to STR, DEX, CON, INT, etc.
  • Added the Cracked Sash, which gives 0 armor and may only be built by Monsters and Ruffians.
  • The entire world is now one enormous Wildlands, and spawns the quest "win the game."
  • Entering a chasm or chasm edge tile will kill a unit, because it is now falling into a bottomless pit.
 
 
Fixes

It actually only took about 20 minutes, plus some random thoughts throughout a tedious day at work.

Also, thanks to a few of you for doubling my karma! I'm glad you enjoyed the post. 

And finally, developers, let this be a notice: if you don't post a changelog, someone else will!
