    • Added a warning icon to construction buildings whose constructor cannot spawn due to a missing tool
    • Added a warning icon to special buildings where trainings stalls due to the population or army limit

    • Fixed a rare crash when activating the earthquake
    • Fixed a bug that prevented achievements from being unlocked

    @abuion:

    you can check you current game´s version number as follows:

    PC
    Right click on the Settlers7R.exe in yourSettlers7directory\Data\Base\_Dbg\Bin\Release\ and select the version tab.


    MAC
    Open the Finder and go to the Settlers7 application. Choose the application an press the "space" key.

    @BB_EarnyC

    On my system it's not exactly like that (Windows 7). Inside the Settlers7\Data\Base\_Dbg\Bin\Release\ there is no Settlers7.exe but a Settlers7R.exe and then you have to right click> selecet properties> go to the details tab and read the Product version field.

    Here are the full version notes:

    Version 1.05

    Improvements

    • Event sectors for which players have gained free passage (by finishing quests) are now indicated on the overview map by a free passage icon
    • Added a warning icon to construction buildings whose constructor cannot spawn due to a missing tool
    • Added a warning icon to special buildings where trainings stalls due to the population or army limit
    • The handling of the logistics menu has been improved. A left click on a task will now open a context menu which allows the player to move the task to the front of the panel, pause it or cancel it altogether
    • Added information about the player's position as well as improved navigation options to the leader board screen
    • Added the option to change the game’s default port if a router does not separate two connections correctly:

    - Add these lines to your “Options.ini” file (C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\My Documents\Settlers7\Options.ini)

    [Network]
    DefaultPort = 9205

    The default value is 9103 - anything else should do

    • Enjoy the sixth and eighth campaign map optimized for skirmish and multiplayer:

    Wolffelden

    The Land of Wolffelden is surrounded by huge river streams and mighty waterfall cascades. Two rulers with different starting conditions want to gain control over this rich and fertile land. On top of a high plateau you can find an old town, overlooking the wide river streams and offering a Victory Point. When you dare to enter the enchanted forest, the mighty werewolf residing inside, may be useful on your path to victory. At the riverbank you can find the only port. Choose your tactic wisely, depending on your starting position, which may favor a certain strategy.

    Sandbeken

    Three rivals compete in the domain of Sandbeken. It may be beneficial to choose your strategy wisely depending on your starting position. Thick vapor is ascending from the central misty swamp and spreading out to the surrounding lush meadows. It may be key to your success, when you accomplish to cross the misty swamp or gain access to the connecting sector inside the swamp area. There are two further town sectors, which have tactical value and offer victory points. There is a river port in the north and a marketplace in the southern hills, which offer rich trades.

    I would like to thank Blue Byte for a great patch (I speak for myself). I hope there will be feature patches to further improve the game.
