2kgames details upcoming Civilization V patch

Turns out 2kgames has heard the thousands of complaints of Civlization 5 crashes and are working on a patch to fix a lot of the numerous issues that most of us have encountered.

Below is a list of upcoming fixes that will eventually make it to Civilization 5.

UI

  • Fix for production prompt that sometimes appears with newly created puppet states that could stop the player from being able to end the turn.
  • Aircraft banner corrections – now when you rebase an aircraft, the number will move with it.
  • Resource icons now come up with Ctrl-R again, instead of sharing the same button with Build Roads.
  • Selecting a great general will no longer cause yield icons to appear.
  • Added option to disable auto-unit cycling.

  • Added new tab to the Economic Overview Screen: “Resources & Happiness.”
  • Added option to activate the mp score list in single player (for “always up” score similar to Civ IV.)
  • The Annex/Puppet/Raze popup now indicates how much extra Unhappiness will be assumed with each action.

MODDING

  • Category list now displays correctly
  • “Installed” panel now displays ALL versions of a mod but prevents the user from enabling multiple versions.

  • Economy – Multiple fixes to the way trade-routes are tabulated and recognized.
  • Economy – Can now sell Buildings in a city (to help lower maintenance for obsolete buildings later in the game).

  • City States – Fixed a bug where you could not gift aircraft to city states.
  • Military – Medic promotion now only provides healing bonus for adjacent units.
  • Military – Fix for Minuteman movement.

  • Military – Improved unit cycling logic. Camera will jump around much less.
  • Balance – Engineers +1 hammer

AI

  • Military – AI will tend to build ships to deal with blockaded cities more often
  • Military – Corrected an issue hampering movement of AI armies, especially when in close proximity to enemy forces
  • Diplomacy – AI will be more reluctant to offer or accept open border agreements with more powerful opponents.
  • Diplomacy – Fix for never ending deals (peace, research agreements, etc).
  • City – City specialization and city focus improvements.
  • City – Cities that are Avoiding Growth will not grow while that option is selected
  • Workers – Priority of trading posts reduced, and rebalanced priorities on other improvements
  • Workers – Improved the path-finding mechanic when building route-to roads improved, including a large performance increase when evaluating road-pathing.
  • City – Make sure Puppets don’t construct buildings that require Resources.
  • City – Add a Puppet city strategy that turns off training buildings and emphasizes gold.

  • Save/Load – Fix for corrupted saves being experienced by some players in late-game.
  • Map – Huge map crash-during-load fix that were reported on some specific systems.
  • Map – Terrain caching fix that could cause problems for certain video cards (the “glowing red orbs” seen on the map are an indicator of this).
  • Map – Fix for the low res terrain that appears the first time the game is run (terrain tiles would not load in anything but low-res the first time you play on some computer configurations)
  • Strategic View – Crash fix for units rendering in background.
  • Strategic View – Fix for selecting units either standing on a city plot, or garrisoned in the city plot.
  • Eyefinity – Better handling of leader scenes when using Eyefinity displays.
