    Hello all,

    We're moving our experimental branch to default today, we've done a bit of testing there and feel it's stable enough. You can check the changes below, they're all located on the changelog. We'll be releasing the next experimental patch 0.3.4 sometime next week! Thanks much for the continued support!

    Changes in 0.3.3

    General

    Multiplayer games have proven to be sustainable for a longer period. For example, War of roses servers are now empty, if any of them work anymore. I am aware that this has been proposed a thousand times, but I would not want this game to fail. If you want to play the game for a long time, enable LAN server, private server and of course singleplayer. I know that your budget is narrow and the minimum budget for this game is 5 million euros. You'd better get the money from the Chinese Young Pioneer Foundation (in Chinese name is a bit diffrent).

    If I remember right every time there's an update, the whole block needs to rewrite itself.
