Hi there Longbow friends, congratulations for the release.
I'd like to ask two questions:
1) "- Roman sandbox factions now start with only legions" i tried the sandbox since its the game mode i liked the most in Hegemony Gold and i already tried the campaigns during early access. My question is: does it remain that way? Can Roman factions train legions only? Because in my towns i cant build the archery range nor the stable. And of course train no skirmishers. Is this intended that way? This would make it much harder to man the walls of my towns in late game
2) Could you make the missile trails a toggleable option? I liked it more in earlier versions when they were not visible.

Beside of that i love the game. Thanks for your passion. Bye

I've waited until the game ends to be early access. I've bought it yesterday. I feel the game is still buggy some resource facilities stop to work randomly and that's was a problem. For example in chapter two my two log camps just don't give any wood and thus I'am stuck because I can't fortify the bridge with wooden walls and I can't build the workshop to produce siege units. Please tell me what is the possible reasons of the problem if I placed workers in these camps and connected it with supply lines to cities.

A problem I encountered post-change was in the opening parts of chapter 2. After I move siege equipment to Noviodunum and capture the city, the campaign does not advance. No new objectives come up, no new dialogue either. I know it used to work, as I beat that scenario months ago during early playtesting. However, this time nothing happened. I tried to use the command prompt to force the game to proceed to the next dialogue and objective, but could not figure out how to properly do so.
