    Huh-hm! Okay, things are looking good on changes history.

    Anyone that can give us a short roundup whether the game's much more stable than late 2016 builds, last time I had that installed on my hard-drive, still afraid of going back (not a single minute I've spent since then, counter still clocks 96 hours) lol?

    Yep, bummed of what happened and everything that was put behind schedule, for marketing tournaments of no sense to the series, at damn all. Change my mind. Maybe?

    Hello, you still don't fix the selecting of the units after so long time ... :(

    example:

    if you press Ctrl + A - Select all units (Military Units + Peasants)
    [​IMG]

    And then Shift + LMC (left mouse click) - Select units/buildings from the selected group you want to have
    (I selected some but there is no highlight like it was in Cossacks back to War)
    [​IMG]

    This is what I selected
    [​IMG]




    And there should be this yellow highlight: when you select units/buildings from the selected group you want to have
    [​IMG]

    After you release the "Shift key" this units will be selected:

    I'm very doubtful about a ship of the line balance. Now 95.000 HP and Galley are useless now. Gold consumption increased and HP decreased. I don't understand where is the balance? Swiss Jaeger is also overpower can you do something with new patches? I agree Mac version need as soon as possible. By the way patch is good.

    We are still waiting for Mac version. Many people bought this game because of Mac versions for their Mac computers.

    Hello!

    Any news about 18th century ships like Victoria?

    Are the modding tools as they are finalized? Maybe it's because I'm not that knowledgable about programming, but I imagined they would be a bit more accessible. Things like creating new units are still pretty convoluted if you aren't already a private game developer.
     
  13. Anatotitan, As i am think GSC simple don't wont C3 be modded (and even played more, than thats 1-3 years). SDK and other - only piar. I am don't wait already, and wo global patching by GSC its not very help in global modding.

    Well, extensive and easy-to-use modding tools were promised before launch, and to me personally, were atleast one reason to buy Cossacks 3. Now I had my fun playing the game, and continue to do so, but I am interested in trying out creating some mods, and the existing tools simply aren't accesible for me.

    (On a side note, as that is the actual topic of this thread, the new patch was really good, especially river maps were a great addition.)

    Were you having a stroke when you made this comment?
     
  17. Plz, don't mix up with self. (I am not ask - simple view at picture of your pictogram here)

    No, seriously, I have honestly no idea what you were trying to tell (or ask?) me with "But... and?", so please elaborate. Or, for the sake of all of us, don't. Because I don't think anyone would understand you.
     
  19. (Never don't say for all... More: by self view point...)
    "But... and?" = But... what corelation in your post to/and my post?... It is different themes...

    Well, you should have made that clear. Like I said, it is hard to follow you.
