*recovers from Annatar's usual brute force and meanness*
Word of warning to folks with installed mods. If it's not in one of these countless Entrenchment threads, make sure you remove the mod before trying to launch Entrenchment. The auto-load settings for mods were causing me to go to a permanent black screen when running it. I deleted the data inside the Mods folder and removed the modname line from my user settings file and it opened right up.
Just figured it might save some people some swearing time if they didn't make the same mistake I did.
Edit: Ahahahaha! I can't wait to see the reaction to some of these defense tech research options. As usual, I've only seen TEC, but my jaw dropped at some of them.
