A new build with more icons added. All spells should now have individual icons, instead of just the icon for the school of magic to which the spell belongs. The notification bar next to the map has also gotten a big revamp. Instead of tiny little lines of text, there are now icons you can click and the UI will focus on the relevant game element (city, army, event, etc.). Next up is a better UI for followers and tasks, and then it’s time for big things for tactical combat! There is also a bunch of behind the scenes mechanics work, as is often the case, but that’s not really interesting to anyone but me 🙂
WinXP users get .NET 4.0: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851 instead of 4.5.1 (which is not compatible with XP).
