In addition, there have been several improvements to the UI and AI and a host of other fixes and adjustments that have been added through months of testing and player feedback. To reflect the many changes and tweaks, an updated manual is also included, which will be updated further over time.  We strongly recommend that all owners of Gary Grigsby’s War in the East upgrade to the 1.04.36 release.
