As you know we continuous patch up our 2.5 base.
But the next patch have interventions into core files so you get not an patch, you get an new full version.
Keep in mind this is a open beta, you can help to make it better with feedback. Basics testings are down by me (crash issues) but for balancing i need more info from users.
The beta means not that you get an half finished game. You have all in there like in 2.5 and some changes.
The base version 2.6 from this beta is tested. Additional updates need some testing but are available.
The goal was to minimize possible crashes and to improve the AI.
In this new version also the BAI is improved, we use for this darthmod`s BAI with his permission.
Killing rates are lowered for testing, because the damage now fall down on max range. This effect most milita units and others with low accuracy.
If it will be too low it will be raised again to a higher level.
For testing all forts and city fortifications are back in game. Therefore the artillery damage against buildings is raised significant to effective destroy them.
CAI changes are now not that drastic, i prefer the slower way to improve it now step by step.
