Thanks Johan and the Paradox team!! As the era covered in this game happens to be my all time favorite from a history perspective. You have no idea how much i want to fall in love with this game the way i have with In Nomine. Which is why i look forward to these patches and dare i say, an expansion or two. Thanks again.

I think the Project Mayhem forum has distracted some attention; it did so for me! These changes look cool.
