When the player right-clicks on an elephant counter, he gets a wrong description of this unit : "This tribune has received a temporary command ... They are... usefull for moving supplies......".
Apparently this descriptive text refers to another future game in the series or to new features in the current game .....

(thanks a lot for this wonderfull game)

Well, this is an error which crept into the last update.

Naturally I regret the inconvenience to you and other players.

As for the cause, you are exactly right. I was playing with the idea of temporary commanders. But I decided against including such a feature in the 1.0.4 update. Unfortunately I made a mistake in coding the information for this type of unit. So the information for the Elephants unit is now wrong.

The elephants should be the only unit type affected. No other functionality in the game should be affected by this error - only the information dialogs. That stinks and is embarrassing.

When some time has passed we'll probably issue a 1.0.5 patch which will be a purely maintenance release. For now I ask the players' indulgence. If I do find any errors in essential functionality, I will issue a hot fix immediately, of course.

Thanks for finding and reporting this.
