The expansion has just received a massive update for Xmas:
- removal of the (annoying for some) Tundra and Autumn climate on the surface layer: no more swamping of these 2 climates on the map
- big improvements in the Shadow layer RMG, including new Water patches with the Monument to the Ashen Rose new site; the Mithril Mines finally spawn underground
- icons rework for Shadow Realm sites (thanks Refineus!)
- major update to the campaign, including VERY nice pictures for scenario 1 (images for the other scenarios in the next update, probably around March!). Scenario 3C is still far from ready. Scenario 3A and 3B are work in progress.
- new textures for all the Elder creatures, but one, and for the Gemstone Mine (thanks Refineus again!)
- the roster of heroes is now complete for the Shadow Elves
- full localization in Polish and update to the German, Russian and French localization
- many bug fixes
