The transition of VEM to GEM is basically complete. The major remaining tasks are:
- Faith: fixing bugs and improving balance.
- Leaders: balancing G&K-specific leaders.
- Espionage: investigating possible enhancements.
- Reduced the AI priority for vanguard units.
- +10% higher strength for Iron and Horse units.
- -10% lower strength for Vanguard units.
- -10% lower strength for Archers, Composite Bows, and Crossbows.
- 15% combat bonus for Vanguard units near friendly units (was 20%).
- +50% higher ranged strength for Gatling Guns.
- Indirectly raised power of subs vs battleships:
- +25% Submarines.
- +25% Destroyer strength vs Submarines.
- Barbarian Frigates appear when any player has Archaeology (was Navigation).
- Added the Leaders section of VEM to GEM.
- Updated the github project files to the current version to support translations.
- Split the Demolish and Tactical Bombing promotions into one promotion for each effect (like +50% vs cities, +50% vs land, etc).
- The effect of Air Siege promotions now matches the tooltips.
