Thanks for all your work and continuous improvements to this already great fun game.
Thank you also for the Cult site in Orcadia, especially since I am in a multiplayer with Orcadia now! :) It would be nice to see some standing stones there.

Some feedback: the icon for the launcher for the game, if you use the Empires.exe, is too dark and vague. I think it needs some more definition to make it look like something than a blurry shadow.

The icon to indicate that the units are mountainmen looks more like a catapult/trebuchet than a mountain to my eye, though once you become used to it, you know what it is.

A quality of life improvement I would like is to be able to see how many citizens I could move from one task before the number of turns it would take to complete that task would be increased. This could be accomplished by changing the shading of the citizens slightly for instance.

As for compatibility, the changes to the setup will obviously not be added dynamically to an ongoing game, for the rest everything but the fix to population cap will be dynamic.
Thanks for the quick fix! On the steam forum, I noticed the above comment by Pocus. I am confused as to what exactly it means that "the population cap fix is not a dynamic fix to on going games"?

At game start the initial population of each region is used to determine how easy it will be to grow past high level of population (say 20+). This is how in games started in 1.05 you'll have some difficulty to have 50 populations in Melita or in a forlorn desert region.
This won't be retroactive for ongoing games though ... You need to start fresh for that. Also 1.04 had a bug that penalized too many regions on this point, meaning that even Rome will have difficulty grow past 30+ more or less.

Keep up the update chaps, I bet it can get a bit negative with folk complaining about this and that but updates will get the game to a great place.

Do you have any product roadmap to see? Any plan to add a dlc or expansion?

I think that the most important thing to upgrade is the diplo, with more options. for example military access and buy units from other ( Like Hanibbal did it trough Hispania ).

We are working on improving diplomacy, but this will be a free update :D
