2K Games has released the first patch including updates to the Vassal States, Great Generals, multiplayer functionality, graphics, interface, sound, AI, balance, text, modding and the following 6 scenarios: Genghis Khan, Chinese Unification, Alexander the Great Scenario, Peloponnesian War, Vikings, and Omens.
No longer possible to receive a request from an AI to declare war on one of his vassals (!) Vassals can no longer accept one-sided defensive pacts (!) Fixed happiness from vassal issue You can now airlift into cities of your vassal You don't pay supply costs for units inside your vassal's borders Can no longer ask someone to make peace with a vassal. Talk to the master directly.
Vassal AI improvement
When you declare war on a vassal, you also declare war on the master (instead of the master declaring war on you) Vassal AI no longer makes *all* their gold available for trade. Vassal AI never refuse to talk to their master AI better considers war consequences of accepting a vassal Vassals no longer freed when master forms a permanent alliance - Fixes the vassal/defensive pact exploit Master/Vassal AI attitude reflects the implicit defensive pact of a vassal agreement. Master/Vassal AI no longer give each other negative attitude modifiers for close borders. Vassal AI does not get upset because of Master's defensive pacts with third parties. Vassal cannot own plots within the city radius of his master's cities unless those plots are closer to his own cities. If you have a peace treaty in effect with someone, you can no longer declare war on their vassals either. Adjusted negative AI attitude for having vassals AI no longer refuses to become a vassal because of "your lands too far" when you are actually neighbors
When a generic Great General is attached to a unit, the unit is no longer given a TXT_KEY name Great Generals experience threshold scales with the ratio of Great People threshold to unit production rate (so the threshold is the same at all speeds except Marathon where they require 1.5 time more experience)
Anonymous play: real player names revealed on game end Fix for anonymous mode not being always anonymous Fixed some more anonymous play issues - You can no longer see other player's names in the staging screen for loading a save - You no longer see the player ID for "waiting to hear from..."

Fixed non-shader version of Mehmed if too many individual plots need globe rendering, redraw entire globe texture for performance Hooked up modern harbor graphic Fixed issue where combat zoom did not happen after you just clicked "yes" on the popup to declare war. Possible fix for grid crash. Test by playing at medium or low graphics level. Kublai / Qin swap High resolution terrain option has no effect when graphics settings are not at the highest level
