The Settlers 7 Patch Adds New Map

A new patch is now available for The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom to update the management/strategy sequel to version 1.11. The Settlers 7 Website is still a couple of versions behind, and the patch news on the Ubisoft forums is likewise out of date, but Ubisoft does have the full patch on their file server. We couldn't as easily guess the filenames of the other patches, but they are all now available from AtomicGamer, The Patches Scrolls, and WorthPlaying. The new version is also available automatically though Steam, where we can find the patch notes, which include word that the new version adds a new Monhaim Valley map for skirmish and multiplayer as well as several new Occult Technologies. The full patch notes follow.

New Content

  • New Monhaim Valley map for skirmish and multiplayer

Improvements

  • The new Technology Board “The Occult Science” offers players 6 exciting Occult Technologies:
    • Necromancy:
      • Fallen soldiers briefly come back from the dead to avenge their death.
    • Evil Eye:
      • Fewer Clerics are needed to proselytize Camps.
    • Deal with the Devil:
      • For every soldier you send to kingdom come, you’ll be rewarded with coins.
    • Demonic Bargaining:
      • You’ll get more coins for each batch of Garments and Jewellery you sell at Ports and Marketplaces.
    • Dark Aura:
      • The effect of Clerics deployed in Camps is increased by 5%.
    • Hidden Persuasion:
      • With every deal they close at Ports or Market Places, your Traders have a 10% chance of obtaining their merchandise without having to pay.
  • The new Trading Board “The Pentacle” is now available in the Map Forge.
  • Added the new Template Exchange to upload, browse, share and rate templates created in the Map Forge.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a wrong message that was displayed after the game lost its network connection
  • Fixed a double displayed mentor text
  • Fixed a bug related to the shortcuts on MAC that were implemented with patch 1.09 – Shortcuts now work on MacOS
  • Fixed a bug were a Facebook account cannot be connected to game

Well done UBI, you curbed PC Piracy somewhat, and you are supporting your game with subsequent patches, because you received funds accordingly.

Computer? Check.

Facebook? No, over my dead body.

Twitter? I'm not into e-narcissism, thanks.

Hell, I don't even show up on Google.

So, well done, Ubi. Yet another of your games I won't buy, because I refuse to be treated like a criminal, and didn't slow the pirates down won bit. Take your virtual tracking anklet and shove it.

Every sale they have on this game, I check the price. I've been wanting it since it came out. I've been tempted a few times, especially when it hit $20. But my connection just plain sucks from time to time. It wouldn't be a big deal if it were only Settlers having an issue. I could play other games. But I don't want to encourage this shitty DRM, because eventually more games will have it and then no, I won't be able to play other games.

Also, not on Facebook. Twitter sucks. Google street view? Uh.. we're not talking about privacy. We're talking about a persistent internet connection.

Nope, because just like everything else it was cracked. Time and time again DRM inconveniences the paying customer, not the pirate.
BTW, cut down on the caffeine

Same. Still not worth purchasing because of that lame DRM BS...

I don't think so. I'm waiting for a $10 sale or the patch. Whichever comes first.

Cool, have they removed the requirement to be online 100% of the time you play (and stop you from playing if you ever do go offline)?
If not, they can't have my money yet.
