    Priority fixes needs to be multiplayer lags (optimize code), multiplayer game reconnect/rejoin, multiplayer save game, multiplayer custom maps (we need to be able to play on custom designed maps).

    Unit attacking bugs, nothing is worse when you attack a formation that is on stand ground and you get slaughtered because of the way the formations attack, stand ground is far too powerful.

    Stacking of unit formations is a real problem and incredibly unrealistic, it should be separate formations attacking/defending, not a blob of stacked formations in one spot. This is not hard to fix, just make it that 2 or more formations cannot take up the same space on a map.

    Less, but still important are Algeria getting a gunpowder unit, some suggest the Bedouin unit which has a musket, you cannot play with Algeria against any other nation, Algeria is often randomly selected in a random nations game, no one want's to get Algeria. The thing that is annoying about this is that its so easy for GSC to do, they literally just have to reskin a unit and add some lines of text to the game files, no programming required.

    I know they had one programmer working on Cossacks 3 because they advertised the job position last year. I personally think all they will offer is a few bug fixes that wont matter and they will provide the Cossacks/American Conquest series as a "gift" for Cossacks 3 owners, I think they were working on getting them compatible with Windows 7/8/10.

    Speaking of, it's the anniversary of the first Cossacks, GSC said under some post that they were still working on the update but couldn't give a precise date yet.
    I really wonder what it will be about, what kind of fixes or additions can take this much time, it must be quiet substantial.

    I hope that it won't cause too much trouble for mods to update

    They posted:

    "On April 24, 2001 «Cossacks: European Wars» came out. 20 years ago, the «Cossacks» series was born, a series in which all these years players meet on the battlefields of Europe. This game showed that the real-time strategy genre is something that is interesting not only for a narrow circle of gamers, but also for a wide audience Many awards on the European market, more than 3 million copies sold and the interest of players from all over the world — will be the proof.
    This day became one of the milestones in the history of GSC Game World company. The support of the fans, coupled with the creativity of our team, allowed us to set only the most ambitious goals. And, beieve us, we still have this fire inside!
    20 years is a huge date in the gaming industry, and we are very proud that today we can celebrate it with you. What adventures we had... What adventures are yet to come!
    Happy holiday, Cossacks!"

    In the comments they also put a screenshot of Keys to play their various games, with people nothing they dont work:


    Someone also commented: "C3 for mac!?"
    GSC responded with "some day..."

    Hinting that they must also be working on this, but we have been told all this before, I wonder how substantial any update they release will be? They may have only started working on the update very recently so what might seem like a long time and lots of work might not be.

    I have a feeling they may announce American Conquest 2 soon, it looks like they want to fix all the issues with Cossacks 3 with a big patch update to keep good faith with the fans and at the same time announce the new title they have been working on, it makes more sense as you wouldn't bother fixing Cossacks 3 which is over 5 years old unless you wanted to keep good faith in your customers for the next game release, Stalker 2 has also been delayed until next April.
