Article posted on 12/15/2021

AI and Map Density Get Update
4.21 also brings a number of long requested balance updates


What players will probably notice the most, however is how much better the AI is at putting together fair trade offers. This may only merit a single line in the change log but represented the bulk of the engineering time for this update.
