This one is the first of what we expect to be two releases for today. The main reason we're pushing this one early is that it has such major CPU usage enhancements in it that we really wanted to get that into the hands of folks as soon as possible.
But it also has a few other tweaks, the most notable of which is that the wind on the world map is now a visible thing that not only is shown blowing but also darkens the tiles it covers. This is something that players have wanted for a good while, so that they can have a better visual barometer of just how much they have pushed the winds back on their continent.
More to come soon. Enjoy!
This is a standard update that you can download through the
in-game updater itself, if you already have 0.500 or later. When you
launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found
if you're connected to the Internet at the time. If you don't have 0.500 or later, you can download that here.
