------------------ About 1.3 -----------------------
Current still unsolved issues. To be done whenever the issue is found, or in the next patch.
- Some banners still overlapping
- Some banners overlap slightly to the left or right.
- Formations for infantry still don't work.
- Some scenes might be bugged
- Troops/factions might still be inbalanced. I'm trying with every update to balance it out further to at (hopefully) some point where it will all be balanced out perfectly.
This however will take some time, so please bare with me and stay patienced!
Note - The scene of Syracuse that was previewed on Moddb got bugged during the development and had to be taken out.
Hopefully I'll be able to repair the scene for the next patch. Otherwise I'll have to re-do it completely.
Note - Although I'm very gratefull to all of your who have reported the bugs they encountered and the suggestions that have been given.
I would have to say that it can be possible that I've forgot about a couple of them. Therefore please refer to the new forum for bug reports
so it's easier for me to know about them, so I can fix them. Same with suggestions!

- Replaced Arms for all factions

- More scenes
- New factions
- Some slight arena-fighting overhaul
