Latest patch of the original release.
Also the version that used to be on Steam (NOT the History Edition).
Game runs stable and all game mechanics work.
What does not
There are many graphical glitches:
- Changing the brightness/contrast changes it for the whole desktop, and it stays after closing the game. Opening nvidia-settings resets it.
- Parts of the terrain are positioned at incorrect altitudes.
- Building doesn't progress as it should. Instead of "growing" individual parts of buildings suddenly appear.
- Shadows don't work.
While the game is technically playable, the broken terrain makes it a less joyful experience.
What was not tested
-Multiplayer, but that should work according to earlier tests.
Runs pretty fast on a Nvidia GTX 650 TI. Cutscenes with camera movement showed a big frame-drop.
