Update 1.3 to Supreme Commander 2 has been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:
Bug Fixes and Improvements:
• Private games have been replaced with Friends Only games. This means that you can mark a game as “Friends Only” and it will only be seen in your friends’ “Friends” tab.
• The game browser has two new filters: Show Passworded games, and Show All Regions (both off by default).
• Added “Test Ping” to the Skirmish menu, which will simulate in game traffic volume (based on number of players) for 5 seconds. This will help players find problematic network connections before getting into a game.
• Color coding on pings in skirmish lobby. When a ping is greater than 400 it will be yellow, and when greater than 500 it will be red.
• Games list in the games browser can now be sorted on each column.
• Cybran and Illuminate air factory veterancy fix: factories now calculate veterancy rate correctly.
