I didn't play many turns. I just wanted to verify a few things.
Fixed an issue where battle map markers remains forever if you save/load while they exist.
I sent my probe looking for something to destroy it. I found some pirates and left it close to them. After it was destroyed, I played one more turn and saved the game. I completely exited GalCiv4, restarted it and loaded the save. After a few turns, the map marker vanished, which never happened before this fix. I will agree with Publius on this - Hooray!
Sentry option now shows as disabled if it was going to get bumped out immediately by an enemy anyways
I checked this, and it works. It is a very welcome improvement.
Updated the Onyx Hive Growth tooltip to be more accurate to where the bonus is coming from.
This is now correct.
Fixed some garbage characters in some alien first contact messages.
I couldn't find any in the English text, so I guess they are fixed for now, or I missed those that still exist. The problem is that the other language has many occurences of those garbage characters. I hope the fix for the English ones can be used for the other language.
