Hello Mec, and all of the SOTS fanbase!! It's been quite a while since I last posted, and I see this topic on login, So my question is what are the downloads for the patch, and does the GG patch only require the GG Version of ANY......

PS: That Teaser Trailer is BADASS!!!!!

Slightly random (and possibly silly) question. What with the holiday steam sale and the full SotS collection being 10$ im considering buying that (just to have it all in one place for easy installing). My question is, when a patch is released, will steam auto patch/update it like it does with other games?

Edit: Just thought of another question, if i get the steam version of the game, will i still be able to use fan made maps?

1. Yes, though the updates don't arrive nearly as fast as many would like, due to it seeming like Steam has some sort of vendetta against this game

2. Yes, just drop 'em into the "Maps" folder :D

Yes, seriously, don't buy the game from Steam. Get it from GamersGate or something.

We wanna play them too! :)

I have version 1.7.1. I bought the Ultimate Collection unaware of the third expansion. So I bought the third one online, and now I'm up to 1.7.1. I do not have the Complete Collection, but I do have the game and all three of the expansions.

I don't know if I'm looking in the wrong pages or what, but I seem to be unable to locate where to officially download the 1.8.0 patch. I would be grateful for any help.

In general, you should be able to get the 1.8.0 update from the Digital Distributor you purchased Argos Naval Yard from. Where did you get Argos Naval Yard from?

The wiki page silvaril linked at the top of this page lists two mirrors. Personally, I think my mirror is simpler to use than the 5-links-deep FileFront mirror, but I'm biased ;).

The "official" download would be what Nspace said: whatever your distributor provides.

Sorry for the delayed reply. I bought the Navel yard Expansion for $4.91 at the Gamers Gate Website that the Kerberos-Productions linked me too. I have looked for a 1.8.0 download, but all my searches ended with the "Complete Collection".

Update: while I was typing this reply I had stumbled upon the patch in my 'recent download/orders'. In the description, it showed the links for the patches. Thank you for all of your help.

I have another question regarding the patches. If I started a game back with my "a Murder of Crows" patch being the latest, then I Installed the 1.7.1 Naval Yard installment, and now 1.8.0; would the patches be influencing my current game that has been going on for a few weeks now, or will I have to exit this game and start a new one to see the patches take effect on the game that I am currently in the middle of?

All versions are capable of loading older saves; sometimes new features may be missing, especially new techs and races. Otherwise it will play as the version you're running.

I have the Complete Collection with patch 1.8.0 installed - but when I start the game the
"message of the day" still talks about patch 1.7.whatever changes or that the complete collection will be out soon.
Can those obsolete messages be disabled in the game?
