    Priority fixes needs to be multiplayer lags (optimize code), multiplayer game reconnect/rejoin, multiplayer save game, multiplayer custom maps (we need to be able to play on custom designed maps).

    Unit attacking bugs, nothing is worse when you attack a formation that is on stand ground and you get slaughtered because of the way the formations attack, stand ground is far too powerful.

    Stacking of unit formations is a real problem and incredibly unrealistic, it should be separate formations attacking/defending, not a blob of stacked formations in one spot. This is not hard to fix, just make it that 2 or more formations cannot take up the same space on a map.

    Less, but still important are Algeria getting a gunpowder unit, some suggest the Bedouin unit which has a musket, you cannot play with Algeria against any other nation, Algeria is often randomly selected in a random nations game, no one want's to get Algeria. The thing that is annoying about this is that its so easy for GSC to do, they literally just have to reskin a unit and add some lines of text to the game files, no programming required.

    I know they had one programmer working on Cossacks 3 because they advertised the job position last year. I personally think all they will offer is a few bug fixes that wont matter and they will provide the Cossacks/American Conquest series as a "gift" for Cossacks 3 owners, I think they were working on getting them compatible with Windows 7/8/10.

    Speaking of, it's the anniversary of the first Cossacks, GSC said under some post that they were still working on the update but couldn't give a precise date yet.
    I really wonder what it will be about, what kind of fixes or additions can take this much time, it must be quiet substantial.

    I hope that it won't cause too much trouble for mods to update

    They posted:

    "On April 24, 2001 «Cossacks: European Wars» came out. 20 years ago, the «Cossacks» series was born, a series in which all these years players meet on the battlefields of Europe. This game showed that the real-time strategy genre is something that is interesting not only for a narrow circle of gamers, but also for a wide audience Many awards on the European market, more than 3 million copies sold and the interest of players from all over the world — will be the proof.
    This day became one of the milestones in the history of GSC Game World company. The support of the fans, coupled with the creativity of our team, allowed us to set only the most ambitious goals. And, beieve us, we still have this fire inside!
    20 years is a huge date in the gaming industry, and we are very proud that today we can celebrate it with you. What adventures we had... What adventures are yet to come!
    Happy holiday, Cossacks!"

    In the comments they also put a screenshot of Keys to play their various games, with people nothing they dont work:


    Someone also commented: "C3 for mac!?"
    GSC responded with "some day..."

    Hinting that they must also be working on this, but we have been told all this before, I wonder how substantial any update they release will be? They may have only started working on the update very recently so what might seem like a long time and lots of work might not be.

    I have a feeling they may announce American Conquest 2 soon, it looks like they want to fix all the issues with Cossacks 3 with a big patch update to keep good faith with the fans and at the same time announce the new title they have been working on, it makes more sense as you wouldn't bother fixing Cossacks 3 which is over 5 years old unless you wanted to keep good faith in your customers for the next game release, Stalker 2 has also been delayed until next April.

    Cossacks 5th anniversary is coming soon, last year GSC left this :

    I'm a hopefull dreamer who still believe one day we will have an update, I mean @Tapik (He even passed by this month on the forum) talked about it in the very late of October 2018, a Cossacks team working on it ! Would you believe it ? Somehow next to the big Stalker that was just announced (and which look pretty cool now from what we can see) there was/is still a team for Cossacks ! But GSC is a mysterious studio that keep informations well hidden and apart from some small messages from times to times on social pages and the few comments there were no news, it could have been dropped for all we know. As much as I like Cossacks, I must admit, it's only the work of @Awar, @Loner or @Johny on mods that kept me coming here and check from times to times if there was anything news on GSC side.

    But this year, it look a bit different to me. Well the was the problem with the Mod manager in May (sad times), but more than that, since then I learned you could see on SteamDB the history of a game and the changes that were made on it even if it wasn't an update the general public got. And it look great ! Or maybe not ... the true is I don't really understand what going on. Is it the test of an update for the game ? Or maybe just some change from Steam to the Cossacks thingies on Steam market, a package that slightly different.

    In May there was definitely something the 19th, probably the source of the problem with the mod manager, there are lines about a beta and a testpass. The following month got nothing interesting some changes about the ratings of the game. But the 14th of this month there was something, again about a Beta and Testpass, and it was a change from the number of May to new one ! And so I want to believe it's an anniversary update to the game ! Maybe the mythical Mac update, maybe more, but I do hope it come.

    Я обнадеживающий мечтатель, который все еще верит, что однажды у нас будет обновление, я имею в виду, что @Tapik (он даже прошел мимо в этом месяце на форуме) говорил об этом в самом конце октября 2018 года, команда казаков работает над этим! Вы бы поверили этому? Каким-то образом рядом с только что анонсированным большим Сталкером (который сейчас выглядит довольно круто, насколько мы можем судить) была / остается команда казаков! Но GSC - это таинственная студия, которая тщательно скрывает информацию, и, за исключением небольших сообщений, которые время от времени появляются на страницах в социальных сетях, и нескольких комментариев о том, что новостей не было, ее могли бы отбросить, насколько мы знаем. Как бы мне ни нравились казаки, я должен признать, что только работа @Awar, @Loner или @Johny над модами заставляла меня приходить сюда и время от времени проверять, есть ли какие-нибудь новости на стороне GSC.

    Но в этом году для меня все выглядит немного иначе. Что ж, проблема была с менеджером модов в мае (печальные времена), но более того, с тех пор я узнал, что вы можете видеть в SteamDB историю игры и внесенные в нее изменения, даже если это не обновление досталось широкой публике. И это здорово! Или, может быть, нет ... правда в том, что я действительно не понимаю, что происходит. Это тест обновления для игры? Или, может быть, просто какое-то изменение со Steam на штуки с казаками на торговой площадке Steam, пакет, который немного отличается.

    В мае точно было что-то 19-е, вероятно, источник проблемы с менеджером модов, есть строчки про бету и тестпасс. В следующем месяце ничего интересного не произошло, некоторые изменения в рейтингах игры. Но 14-го числа этого месяца было что-то, опять же о бета-тестировании и тестировании, и это было изменение числа мая на новое! И поэтому я хочу верить, что это юбилейное обновление игры! Может быть, мифическое обновление Mac, может быть, еще больше, но я надеюсь, что оно придет.

    Love your work Foeurdr! Yes it appears something is on the way, this Tuesday the 21st is the anniversary date so maybe they will share what they have been working on.
    On one the developers LinkedIn page it still lists "Unannounced Title" maybe its American Conquest 2 they have been working on as well at the same time as Stalker 2.

    I was waiting for it yesterday and then there was this diffusion on their page, "Amazing ! They are even streaming the new patch", I even opened twitch to check on and the youtube channel but it was just this 15 secondes loop. :(
    Still I tried to ask is there was a patch for the mod manager coming but it was without success.

    On the bright side, there is nothing to break the mods we got !

    Just an update, it appears finally we will be getting a long awaited patch update! Finally a GSC developer is on Steam answering questions (there had not been a GSC dev in a very very long time in the Steam discussions), someone in the Discussions asked the question: "Are campaigns playable now? Have the bugs been fixed? Are there any community patches?" to which the dev responded "We'll try to fix it in nearest patches."

    He has also answered some other questions on the Cossacks 3 steam discussions.

    Someone with a Steam account should start a new discussion in the Cossacks 3 discussions asking the direct question about the future of the game and when should we expect a patch update?

    Nice !

    I'm still impressed by KeggeR ability to react immediately since 2016 (he didn't mention the Victoria this time) :confused:

    Good job guys!
    If only developers released some new content (like Crimean Khanate or Persia as playable factions and some new unique units to other countries) and repair game bugs. I'd love to go back to playing on Steam. I greet all of you.
