AI Update

To address all complaints we have had about the AI in recent years (too hard/too easy/fleeing etc), we have replaced the simple start bonus system in the custom game menu with a new game mode system that gives the player the following benefits:

-Effectively 16 difficulty levels including much easier and better working harder difficulties.
-Ability to easily team up all AI players against yourself for an exceptional challenge (that also reduces the calculation time of the turns)
-All AI heroes can be set to never flee and fight you to the death.
-All AI heroes can be set to unlootable, this prevents human players from snowballing and motivates exploration, works especially well on very large maps with too much inventory clutter. Also note that in H55 battle sites reset quickly for players that did not originally plunder it.
-In games with only human players you can still use the settings as start bonus only.
-In games with multiple humans + AI players, it is recommended to set the same mode for all players otherwise it is not 100% certain, but in most cases the easiest selected will be prioritized.

Governance

We Fixed Regalia of the Legion not working on governors if growth was already boosted by default bonus. When governors equip a regalia of the legion artifact the gained bonus is now shown among
the growth stats for all tiers in the town management screen!

Furthermore, those stats are now updated daily instead of weekly, therefore future growth can always
be observed after ending a single turn.

Potions

Now if potions are activated in MMH55-Settings.pak all starting heroes receive a free mana potion to make clear it is active (potions are added to artifact pools, but randomly you may not find any of them)

Mapmixer

ThGryphn has updated mapmixer with better customization of neutral stack size:
