Illwinter Game Design, from high atop their wintry fortress of solitude, has released a patch for Dominions II: The Ascension Wars.
These improvements, along with a handful of corrections to some minor glitches, make up the brand new patch now available through Shrapnel Games. The patch, which brings Dominions II: The Ascension Wars up to version 2.13, can be downloaded at http://www.shrapnelgames.com/Illwinter/d2/6.htm.
While a comprehensive listing of what changes are found in version 2.13 is available online here are some of the highlights:
* Implementation of basic magical item modding.
* Improved cheat detection, a must have enhancement for tournament games!
* Provinces will only suffer floods during summer, and only if they are a fresh water province.
* A bow could be used even after one arm was lost. This has been corrected.
