*** Features & Content ***
- [...xxx...]
- [...xxx...]
- [...xxx...]
- [...xxx...]
- The old tutorial of Guild 2 has been ported to the game
- The city treasury is now simulated. The office incomes, payment for
  worker huts and unoccupied buildings and residences, aswell as the
  cost for war are now paid by the city treasury. Also to level up the
  city a specific amount gold has to be accumulated, the mayor will
  start the upgrade.
  The measure to embezzle public money was changed accordingly.
- "Review city treasury" is a new measure in the town-hall, which can
  be used by every citizen - but only office holders can see much more
  detailed information
- Changed town-logic: Much slower level-up of settlements and
  restriction of automatic construction of buildings in settlements;
  the monastery is no longer connected directly to a settlement, the
  guildhall is available at settlement-level "Town" or higher
  (Missions from the guild etc. are also available at settlement-level
  "Town" or higher), the arsenal and the parade ground are available at
  settlement-level "City" or higher (joining a war is also available at
  settlement-level "City" or higher)
- The age of AI-Enemies, as well as the number of their children and
  their age are now dependent on the dificulty
- AI-dynasties now do adopt orphans; that decreases the chance of
  dynasties dying early in-game
- AI now build towers
- The Map "Sherwood Forest" from the original "The Guild 2" has been
  changed and added to the game, so it can work properly in
  The Guild 2 - Renaissance 4.2
- New Maps:
  * The right of Magathaburg
  * The county of Bingenheim
  * The duchy of Weilerthal   
  * Fichtenhain and surrounding area
  * Area around Heiligenblut
- Remastered music:
  * 01_maintheme_new
  * 201_herbshouse
  * 202_crypt
  * 203_mill
  * 205_bank
  * 212_merc
- All classes can choose from a lot more hairstyles and hats
  (thanks to Fajeth)

*** Balancing ***
- Costs of forced marriage no longer depend on the title but on the
  liquid funds of the character Costs of forced marriage: 15% of the
  liquid funds
- Ill employees now tend to go to the Medic much faster
- Offices and titles: AI now tends to buy higher titles and 
  does not block the lower office layers any more
  (thanks to LordProtektor)
- Aggressiveness of the AI is now much more connected to the level
  difficulty
- Number of shadow dynasties now depends on the city-level
- "Dark Magic" now can convert items into (much more) valuable items
  or they give the play some money
- The EXP-gain of Sims has been reworked.
  Some actions caused a low EXP-gain, some a too high EXP-gain, some
  didn't cause any EXP-gain at all
- Cooldown for various measures added (thanks to M.C.)
- Cooldown for "Press protection money" set to 4 hours
- Buying a title via GodMeasure in the town-hall now costs as much as
  buying it directly with a character. But your character will only
  gain EXP by buying it directly.
- Chance of a war break-out has been changed
- Burglary and Razzia no longer possible at worker's huts
  Reason: Own employees could declare the feud on their employers
- HP of the mine and the woodcutter's hut increased massively, to make
  them being harder to conquer
- Changes to raw materials, intermediate goods and final products, to
  balance the market
- Production is now much more important than "train"
 
*** other ***
- Optimized the behaviour of Sims (inspired by Kinver)
- Camera in the lobby of the town-hall is more dynamic now
- Two new water textures have been added
- New buildings: small guildhall, small "town-hall", large monastery
- New 3D models for some plants
- Optimized combat (inspired by Kinver)
- Adding and removing pamphlets has been optimized (thanks to Kinver)
- Some textures have been reworked
- Gaining/losing favour is shown only if the player's dynasty is
  affected directly or indirectly.
- Sadly the maps "The Archduke of Tirol" and "The Kufstein Area" could
  not be repaired, so they had to be removed because of very bad
  performance and crashes
- The weapon "double axe" now is actually a double axe ...
- The warehouse does not need to be built close to a harbour to build
  ships any more
- Robbers wait at the robber camp for new orders and instead of
  hanging around in the city
