  • fixed the allies sending trading carts to the player's town in Saladin 2
  • fixed the blue enemy (Tiberias) in Saladin 5 not getting to the Imperial Age

  • Some small updates to the standard AI's resign behaviour
  • fixed an issue where the AI could look for an idle building and get a building that was not idle if that building had already started training a unit that frame
