Stronghold 3 is the latest castle building game from Firefly. Their previous versions of the game built up quite a following but unfortunately we discovered that the third version was rather underwhelming and needed some serious bug fixing.

After the knock back Firefly have been feverishly beavering away to bring the game up to par so lets take a look at the patch release notes...

Stronghold 3
Version - 1.6.24988
Patch Notes

-New free-build mode control panel. This allows you to do the following:
- Launch an attack/siege from a list against your castle
- Set the in-game difficulty (mostly for the sake of estate food consumption rates currently)
- Give yourself some gold
- Activate and set the evil-ness of random events
- Wall attachments (such as stairs) are no longer limited to their attachment points. This allows you to slide them along wall edges. This also affects hoardings, burning logs and braziers.
- You can now press the N key to jump to notifications (enemy attacks, etc) currently taking place.
- Fixed the bug where players were unable to attack ruins and other structures.
- Fixed a bug where the "King" contributed to the population.
- Some tweaks to multiplayer so that the game shouldn’t lag as much for everyone when a slow computer is in the game. We are continuing to try to fix MP syncing issues especially in games with 3 or more players.
- A new free-build mode map (“Threefish River”) has been added. 
- The crash which occurred after loading a map or save and then exiting the game has been fixed.
- A crash has been fixed when playing military mission 11 (“A Glimmer of Hope”) and using the trebuchet to fire at a tower.
- Deletion & repair now requires a mouse click, rather than just the mouse button to be held down.
- Fixed a bug where blood and sparks particles were attached to troops.- 
- Trees now sway in the wind.- 

Please be aware save games made before patch1.3.24532 that contain fire will crash when loaded.
