In this patch several much needed things were added and fixed.
- Multiplayer connections should be less prone to failing.
- Pesky tooltip bug found and fixed.
- Victory progress display
- Multiplayer connection graphic
- Multiplayer chat is implemented and works.
- Added a notification sound and flash when research finishes.
- Time controls between 1x and 8x speed as well as frozen time for using abilities(singleplayer only)
- In-game options window accessible via the esc key
- Alert notifications reduced in size and moved to the side to be less obtrusive.
- Combat is now reduced to a single attack per round of combat, slowing down how fast a warmongering empire can expand.
