WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE 3.0.6

3.0.7 is a generic bugfix release.

Windows: When it comes time to uninstall this version, it does so cleanly. Former versions failed to remove some of the Registry Keys they had written. Those keys are harmless, but this failed the expectation that uninstall removes such things from the user's machine.

Server / General

  • Silenced some unused entry warnings when loading saved games
  • Long ruleset descriptions are no longer truncated at the client end. Both server and client need to be of a new version for this fix to take effect


Changes affecting players (supplied rulesets)

  • Fixed loading non-scenario savegame saved by a tex-AI enabled server to a server that does not have tex-AI enabled

    • civ1

      • No gold is given to players in the beginning by default

    • civ2

      • Units in the airbase are now shown to their allies, not to the allies of the airbase owner


Changes affecting other rulesets / modders

  • Fixed errors with techs that have Never as one of their requirement
  • Improvements to ruleset sanity checking
  • Changing tile via Lua scripting now triggers side effects like bouncing units
  • Clients now receive updated information when player gold reserves have been changed by a Lua script
  • Fixed potential crash with Heal Unit action
  • Units hiding within an extra (base) are now shown to their allies, not to the allies of the extra owner

  • Civil War now respects maxplayers setting
  • Silenced spammy "Did not find a cm solution..." message
  • Wait for the "interrupt" autosave to finish before quitting the program when threaded save is enabled


General

  • Fixed creation of a directory for map images
  • Optimizations
  • Various internal changes should only affect developers.


Clients

  • Show Irrigation option fixed - Irrigation was being drawn regardless of the value

      • Support all graphics formats provided by SDL2_image library, not just png
      • Fix help crash when a building has only negated requirements
      • Orders menus for present and supported units now correctly open from the city dialog
      • Fix tech help crash
