Julius 1.3.0

Caesar III revient plus en forme que jamais. En effet, bvschaik nous offre aujourd’hui une nouvelle mise à jour dont le changelog en fera pâlir plus d’un. Un certain nombre de bugs ont été corrigés tandis que le moteur se dote d’un nouveau menu de configuration, à partir duquel vous pourrez faire vos réglages comme bon vous semble. Enfin, l’interface et le gameplay ont été affinés, très certainement pour coller au plus près du jeu original.
