ANNO 1404 - Patch Notes 1.1

The most important changes:

- A crash while saving a game could result in the online profile being lost.
This error has been fixed.

- The use of special characters within the Windows user name, profile name or
savegame name caused several errors (eg invalid savegames or crashes). This
error has been fixed.

- Memory errors could lead to invalid savegames under specific hardware
configurations. This error has been fixed.

- Ships which have destroyed a target now wait at that spot for new orders
rather than returning to their starting point.

- The AI was unable to settle some islands. This error has been fixed.

- A function was implemented allowing the items offered at all three ports to
be changed. The player now has the opportunity have the Items on offer changed
upon payment of a fee in gold.

- Military influence areas and firing radii were visually improved to further
simplify use of the military.

- Norias no longer worked properly after buying the "Mystery of the nomads'
achievement. This error has been fixed.

- The "Scroll through Ships" and "Scroll through Warehouses" buttons were moved
to a more prominent position above the minimap.

- The achievements "We have no time to lose" and "The Emirate" have been
adjusted. The Imperial Cathedral must now be built in 7 hrs and the Sultan's
Mosque in 5 hrs (previously 8 hrs and 6 hrs). In return, the condition requiring
the people's satisfaction level to be "adequately satisfied" or better was
removed.

General:

- It was possible to delete savegames and screenshots in the "Gateway to the
World" from within the game. This function is not planned. Effective
immediately, savegames and screenshots can now only be deleted locally. If you
want to delete savegames and / or screenshots online this must be done directly
in the "Gateway to the World".

- Old games from an online profile could be loaded even without successful
login to the "Gateway to the World". This function is not planned. Savegames
from an online profile can now only be loaded once login to "Gateway to the
World" was successful.

- In some cases, when creating an online profile identical ID's were given to
different profiles. This could lead to a new online profile overwriting another
one. This error has been fixed.

- Some special circumstances occasionally resulted in performance downturns.
Errors causing this problem have been fixed.

- An error causing some interface elements to react to external input (eg,
volume control on the keyboard, connecting a Logitech USB headset) has been
