    Hello.

    I’ve found an issue with a trade routes. Before this update I was able to see a vusial route on a map with moving cursor to the route at the route’s list, but now I have to click the route and get inside to see a visual routing on the map. and now there is no easy and fast way to get route visual – you need to click on the every route. it’s very strage and awkward.

      Yes, I got the same issue!

    Hello Everyone!

    Thank you for the update and general improvements. I just want to report an issue. I got a population unbalance in Enbesa after downloading GU15. Both population tiers got a shortage of more than a thousand each and it is happening only in Enbesa. In all other regions population number apparently remained the same. Just wondering if anyone would know what’s happening. Thank you!

    • f frasoucos

      Ops! I got the new mechanics now!

    Grand gallery items feel lackluster
    Was expecting a little more choises

    Can we get an option to hide or reset in game clock? Feel really uneasy when I see how many days I have in a game. Dead serious.

    • c chetkowa

      I have not added friends as friends in UBISOFT because I fear they will see how many hours i been playing. So I hear you. And to make matters worse, I suspect the game don’t log all the hours. Perhaps we need to start Annoholics Anonymous.

    I think a major problem with all of the DLC’s was how little the new goods could feed back into other regions. Lifestyle Needs is definitely a step forward in remedying this.

    Thank you very much for fixing the cursor size changing!
