(If you’re not a beta tester, you should totally pre-order Neocolonialism now!)
This is a big one. The netcode has received a major overhaul–it is much more simple and MUCH more stable. Similar, the game now requires 50% less RAM. There have been some fun UI changes too.
This is Release Candidate 1 (i.e. the second release candidate). If this is as stable as it seems, this is potentially the final build.
If you are a beta tester, I have some questions for you:
- Is the netcode (anything that involves playing/restarting online and LAN matches) fine? Any hang-ups or crashes?
- Is the AI sufficiently smart?
- I changed the way the sound works. Have you noticed? (The change is most obvious at the start of Turn 4.) How do you feel about it?
