the important thing is someday we will truly play this beast !!!
is the economy of the settlements historical and so unchangeable ? or there is room to some adaptation to fit a bit gameplay ?
if the later is the answer maybe i can help, one of the my favourite aspects of tw is the economy and it's the area wich is the most neglected in pretty much every mod
i usually adapt it to what i want in the game (albeit most of the times i only reduce the global economy or increase unit cost to have less stacks around)
i don't think adaptation is what the dot's economy needs, as in my view it should be based on history
but if you guys need someone to try some new formula to it, i can be your guy

Not for the next few builds no, we are happily pacing ourselves so that we get through bugs as systematically as possible.

"Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives. Let my death hold no glory, and let me die forgotten and unknown. Let it not be said that I was one among the dead to accuse the living."
The next release will focus on units, we are currently drafting in all the best looking and most historical looking units we can find. There will still be a few issues, like some units not looking like the right era sometimes, but overall the game will be much more fun and most of all battles will start to feel like they should. I hope we can get all the faction banners right for the battles too. We are also coding the area of recruitment so the campaign should flow better, and buildings will be in the right places- no more 'Greenland Colony' option in Denmark! I'm also trying to get a few surprises added in but it is too soon to talk about them yet, I am also hoping for a small aesthetic refresh like an updated intro video etc. If anyone has some photoshop skills and would like to help us with a new splashscreen/loadingscreen or two please PM me. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT GUYS, IT MEANS A LOT!!!!
