    Open Issues
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    EDIE is based on the original source first written in 1991-1993. Due to the 
    expansive nature of EDIE from ED, some fundamental issues with the networking 
    aspects of the game have been uncovered and are currently indefinitely open.
    
    For best results when saving a network game, the master player should always save
    the game at the beginning of his turn when the network session needs to end and
    play will resume at a later time.
    
    -It is known that combat and recon reports for your opponent are not saved when a
    Network Game is saved.
    -It is known that some restarted network game smay have one player with extra movement 
    points for already moved units if he was a slave and the game was saved in the middle 
    of his active turn.
    -It is known that extremely large games (256x256) can have problems with data 
    flooding/thrashing over a network, especially with computer players that get big

    There was a possible endless loop in AI during particular bad pathing situations.
    
    Commanders were not receiving enough bonus points for city gains in ratings.
    
    Cities over 200% production could drop to 200% if left on 'No Production' too long.
    
    Pathing one square out of a city when it is not possible could cause problems when
    a unit tied to use that path
    
    After the World build dll returns, the game would not use randomness in generating 
    icon terrain types
