Version 2.90 C patch changes (December 19, 2021):
- Corrected issue with some food resources not giving enough bonus
- Slightly reduced Settler costs from version 2.90

Version 2.90 patch changes (December 18, 2021):
- Includes Flintlock's latest EXE patch (C3X_R9)
- Land Settlers on board ships can no longer build cities in water tiles (thanks Flintlock!)
- Overhauled (increased) Unit Movement - most infantry units now have 2 movement points, and most Cavalry now have 3 movement
- The goals of this change are to create the following effects:
* Moving infantry units is now more strategic. You'll want to travel along flat terrain when possible for quicker movement (instead of in previous iterations where terrain was disregarded since you could only move 1 tile per turn regardless of terrain).
* Foot units can now be used more often on offensive pushes along with mounted units, since the difference between their movement and mounted unit movement is less significant
* Units with movement bonuses along certain types of rougher terrain are now more valuable
* Certain races that have a connection with types of terrain can now have almost all of their units benefit from moving on that terrain (example: most Amazonian units now move more quickly through jungles)
* Using most workers is now less tedious as they are able to get from point A to point B more quickly
- Overhauled Terrain Outputs:
- Increased shield output of Forest & Jungle Tiles
- Increased bonuses from mining Hills & Mountains to +2 (but slightly increased turns required to mine)
- Forests can no longer be mined (due to the higher default shield bonus from Forests)
- Effects of above Terrain Output changes
* Looking for more 'balanced' terrain types when founding cities is more beneficial (less "grassland hunting")
* AI keeps vegetation around more often (Forests & Jungles)
- New Small Wonder: Metals Camp
- Villages can now grow to size 7 before needing a Warehouse
- Towns can now grow to size 13 before needing an Aqueduct
- Added additional unique techs to some races
- Most settler units are now slightly more expensive to make up for their quicker movement
- Movement along Roads is now uses 1/2 movement point
- Undead Tomb Crawler worker rate increased from 75% to 90%, but they move more slowly than most worker units from other races
- Slightly increased Map sizes
- Remodeled Spell Spire system to avoid accidental 'resets' of autoproduction cycle when switching to higher levels
- Remodeled upgrade system for building-produced upgradeable units, to avoid accidental 'resets' of autoproduction cycle when switching to higher levels
