As a few people have found already, there have been a couple new updates in the "beta" branch since yesterday. We've been holding off on the release notes as we were still testing and fixing some things.

This is probably our biggest update so far in terms of the amount of code and scripting that's been changed so there's a good chance we have broken a few new things. But we're going to be focusing again on bugs until the Early Access launch next week so we hope to get those resolved quickly.

You'll also noticed that the sandbox and chapter 3 & 4 are no longer accessible. As we've said, we're going to be launching the content in stages during Early Access, but we will make them available again for "internal" testing after we launch.

One of the other big changes is that cities no longer provide income. This is an experiment we're not completely committed to yet, but it was essential to balancing income in chapter 1 and we like that it puts the emphasis more on mines for income and cities for recruits. And now that you don't necessarily need a garrison to hold enemy cities they'll hopefully still be a net asset as a source of recruits.

And before we get to the release notes, thanks again for everyone's help. We've been extra busy this week preparing for the EA launch, but we're excited that it's all coming together and we're eager to get back to development and incorporating all of the great feedback we've gotten.
