Hello ChaoYun,

So, the bigDenzi UI works ok, without any major glitches? Have you experienced a bug where almost all the screen goes black and it can only be fixed by restarting?

No I haven't experienced that.  I have explored on land mostly, but I have only built a couple of colonies since there is no population growth.  I have fought hostile tribes and traded with them without any problems.

I played long enough to advance the game by a year and a half, but I couldn't think of anything else to do.  The wood, fruit, and fish were going negative so I only explored as long as the supplies lasted. 

Most of my time with the game has been from the same save which was after returning from Palos with more colonists and the Hidalgo title.  I kept building storage towers, farms, and houses until I ran out of food.  I could probably do more trading and finance food that way to keep the game going for a while if I time the trips to Palos right.

Thank you for testing it!

I'll get working on a new version to make the colonies work again :)

I've tried sailing a lot and I still haven't experienced

.  I've sailed as much as 200 days, with numerous stops to keep the crew happy.  There were a few flickers of darkness that I couldn't seem to recreate, and since I was holding the left mouse button I don't have any images because they only lasted for a second.

Were there some special conditions that might have caused the bug you mentioned?

I did experience the "out of bounds" critical issue again.  This time I was sailing near Alaska heading W and was at around 70N Lat and over 9000nl.  That must be near the point where the longitudes change from East to West...or whatever that change is.  :-\  The game simply disappears from the screen, or as I put it when I first reported the issue...it unceremoniously ends the game.

I just thought I'd wish anyone and everyone a Happy Holidays!

Yes, I'm still playing.
