  • Enable restricted viewing or allow up to 32 people to spectate at once.
  • Spectators can late-join a game for about 10 minutes in game time.
Single Player Recording

  • Trigger elements are named and prefixed: C (condition), R (reverse condition), or E (effect).
  • Fixed trigger corruption when attempting to select more than 25 units for a patrol effect.

  • Select SQ for v1.0c style single queuing or MQ for the new multiple queuing.
  • With MQ, if multiple buildings are selected, any units trained will be auto-distributed.
  • Changing this in single player mode will preserve the default for future games.
New Civilization Options
  • Team Random: mirrors civs on other teams, randomizing only if necessary.
  • Random: the original Random, which attempts to give you a unique, random civ.
  • Full Random: truly random, giving you the first pick, without regard for uniqueness.
