    [ANNO 1800] Achievements window constantly opens

    Problem Since Update 3 the window with the achievements constantly opens up without being triggered. Cause Since Update 3, the key A opens the achievement window. This leads to a double assignment for the A-key for players that don’t have direction keys on their keyboard as A also pans the camera to the left (WASD).

Fields build in this mode are visually very hard to distinguish from the normal ones. Solution Click on one of the fields and then click on the Upgrade button to actually build the fields.
