* Fixed trade nodes for those nations with resource in home region which caused unprofitable trade theatre routes eg: Sweden and Marathas
fixing the alt-tab issue is a big one for me.

All those regions sure do strain the cpu. my friend is running it on a single core athlon 64 and he says it takes around 5 minutes from clicking the end-turn button to the start of your next turn.

still doesn't stop him playing 8 hours straight though

it's certainly not unstable. It's a little rough in places but still pretty solid. trust me you quickly forget about any minor issues when the "just one more turn" mentality kicks in.

I havent had any crashes, but im in no rush at the moment, trying to finish off other games before diving into this one, I know this one will suck up most of my free time.

I made a mistake :-(

I set the campaign difficulty to 'easy' , because i got frustrated the first time i played having no money . That was because i forgot to research technology, and because i made war with france and spain right in the beginning.

Second run i made better desicions, on 'easy', and no my wealth is 500.000 , and 40.000 comes in every turn . I can take a city from spain , then say "friends ?" and they will actually agree.

I might have to start over, as there is no way to change the campaign difficulty once you started .

I run on hardest difficulty and it is fairly hard but not very hard. It also depends a lot on which nation you play. On this setting naval battles are extremely hard because of unfair strength adjustments.

Biggest issue except for the bugs/crashes are that the AI doesn't do any naval invasions. This make some nations like England and Sweden passive.

Nice mod.

Hey, how can I get the special forces unit? I seem to have one of those Prussian Huzzars I think and I can't find a link on steam to download and activate the unit.
