Hello Kings and Queens, The update to 1.41 will take place on Wednesday, December 10th, 2014. We have focused on bugfixing and some various small improvements. We also integrated new music themes into the game! There will be a short period of downtime during the update, we apologize for this little inconvenience. With this update we also want to say thank you for the entire year - the next update will come to the servers in January. Thank you for playing Forge of Empires! Sincerely, Your Forge of Empires Team
Improvements and changes

- Several new city sounds have been added to Industrial Age and later eras.
- Smoke animations now fade out instead of just disappearing.
- The fierce resistance bonus and military bonus icons have been changed.
- Players are now able to disable clouds in GVG.
- It is now impossible to collect units from military buildings if a player has more than 2000 units in the army pool. It is still possible to get units from quests, even when above the limit. After reaching 2500 units in the pool, it is impossible to get any more units.

- Fixed an issue where collecting Forge Points from Shrine of Knowledge did not remove "Collect All" button.
- Fixed an issue where the Aid timer in social bar was not removed when timer runs out while viewing a screen without social bar.
- Fixed an issue where goods were deducted even if not sufficient, resulting in negative numbers.
- There was an issue where Aid feature was causing endless loading when there was nothing to polish/motivate.
