Welcome back to our new developers blog!
This blog will give an inside in the current changelog to the upcoming version: Bellum Imperii 1.5.2!
The changelog is still subject to change, as there are more things that will be done over time. I am currently estimating that the release of version 1.5.2 will be between now and a week. Do take note that this can always change to unforeseen circumstances.
As can be seen in the changelog, I've succeeded in getting rid of the major issue's what were found in the last version. Besides fixing the issue's I'm also trying to improve the troops and equipment balancing. I added various items which weren't being used yet, new buildings and as could be seen before. It will be optional for people to have the Roman factions have similar colors or not.
Below the changelog there is also noted what still needs to be done and what I have (at least for now) planned for either the upcoming new version or 1.6.
If there is any bug/glitch you found that isn't listed anywhere, please let me know so I can get on it!
