    • During a city update in which an election takes place, the election is now processed before city contraction/expansion. This ensures that a newly elected mayor gets any mails relevant to the update instead of the old mayor.
    • Mail is now properly sent to a mayor when a city is first started, after a citizen assessment occurs, any time a citizen is lost or gained, any time a structure is added to a city that wasn't added by the mayor, any time a structure/decoration/terminal/trainer is removed from a city for being outside city limits after city contraction, from a lack of maintenance, or because there were too many for the new city rank

    • The incumbent will now always win a city election that ends in a tie (if the incumbent is one of those tied for the lead)
    • Any mayoral candidate that loses their citizenship will now automatically be removed from the race
    • Whenever a player loses citizenship, their vote in the current mayor election is properly removed
    • If a mayor is deleted, their city's civic structures are no longer deleted along with them and a new mayor can be elected to take their place
    • Player city bank terminals, mission terminals, and skill trainers will now only register on the planetary map if their city is registered
    • A mayor can now align a decoration or mission terminal's facing to north, south, east, or west after it has been placed in the city
    • A city that doesn't have the funds to pay for it's specialization during it's update will have it removed
    • A city that doesn't have the funds to pay for it's registration during it's update will be unregistered

    • Garden city rank requirements are now enforced during city updates and gardens are at risk of being destroyed if the city's rank remains below the requirement.

    Now to read it all.

    Components crafted into weapons should now be visible on the final weapon, where appropriate!!!
    I've waited 12 years for that to come back, that's awesome.

    Does the components built on to weapons apply to newly crafted weapons only or is it retroactive as well?
