Project SYNTHESIS

Project Synthesis

DOWNLOAD HERE- V .25


Now in the Dawn of Civilization Subforum

The goal of this mod is to combine the greatest modmods of RFC and greatest mods of BTS into one, nice, mod. In the post below this one there is a list of items in the latest version, as well as a full change-log (not completely up to date) in the post below that.

My inspiration for this mod comes from the fact from this funny feeling I get whenever I sit down to play RFC, a RFC modmod, or other BTS mods, that if only feeling: 'Ah, if only RFC: Civilizations in Abundance has an Italian rebirth of Rome like Dawn of Civilization', 'Ah, if only RFC has the Better Global Warming mod, or the features of BUG,' and so on and so forth. I'm sure you guys have felt this sensation yourselves, especially if you're devoted fans to more than one mod.

What I wanted from you guys was assistance and feedback. Obviously to improve the mod I will require people to play it and advise me on its balance, fun level, etc.

REQUIREMENTS:

At this time the mod is English only. All requirements for regular BTS and RFC are also mandatory.

FEATURES TO BE INCLUDED:

This is basically a reference for myself of things I might want to eventually include in the mod. So have already been included; other haven't.

PLEASE NOTE THAT MANY OF THESE FEATURES ARE NOT CREATED BY ME. PLEASE DO NO ATTEMPT TO GIVE ME CREDIT FOR THEM; IN MOST CASES I HAVE POSTED A LINK TO THE ORIGINAL WORK.
  • The basis of the mod is RFC: Marathon. So Epic and Marathon speeds will be available.
  • Features from Dawn of Civilization- far too many for me to list; the core of this game is built around DoC. DoC is a modmod for RFC by Leoreth. I am instead going to redirect you to his page rather than running the risk of having his hard work be attributed to me.

  • Varietas Dialectat for RFC
  • Inquisitor for RFC
  • Revised CityNameManager by ScienceRules, usi, myself, and others
  • Revised American UP: Immigrants can bring their religion by Panopticon (Probability of religion spread higher for Protestantism, Catholicism, and in American cities with fewer religions.
  • Great General spawns for:
    Spoiler:
    • Some of the more millitaristic, quickly expanding civs with later starts get great generals. I was thinking:
      • Genghis Khan of Mongolia
      • Osman I of the Ottoman Empire
      • George Washington of America
    • To simulate wars of independence, perhaps great general and (more) unit spawns for reborn civs/ vassalized civs freeing themselves from masters, resulting in war (this one's a maybe)
  • Panopticon's Dynamic Terrain Mod
  • Merjin_v1's Second UU, UB (A BIG maybe)
  • Great Depression change(s). Ideas discussed here.
  • From non-RFC Mods:
    Spoiler:

  • From my own brain/ suggestions of others:
    Spoiler:
    • American UHV requires Empire State Building as well.
    • Spread of religion automatically to new cities founded by colonial powers/ minor colonial powers (see above for those two lists)
    • More religions (made possible by >7 religions screen above):
      • Sunni/ Shi'ite split (also in SoI)
      • Orthodoxy (also in RFC:Europe)
      • Hellenism (also in RFCC)
      • Reintro of Judaism as a minor religion like in RFCE (maybe)
      • Reintro of Confucianism (maybe)
      • Possibly paganism?
    • Possibly a reworking of Russian UP (thread discussing this here)
    • Canals
      • Can be built on any level, barren terrain (grasslands, plains, deserts]
      • Building them requires a large sum money- let's say 150 gold on grassland and plains and 300 on deserts.
      • Teaching AI's how to use this would be difficult with my programming skill. Help would be appreciated.
    • Attrition (maybe)
      • Causes a certain amount of damage every turn spent in enemy territory


DOWNLOAD INFORMATION

DOWNLOAD HERE- V .25

However, it is possible to play the game prior to the next release via the usage of a tool known as the SVN. What it the SVN, you ask? Click the spoiler to find out:

Spoiler:

SVN or Subversion is a software that provides an online repository for data which can be connected to a folder in one's Explorer. From then on, I can commit recent changes to this repository and you can update your version of it. The Synthesis repository is available HERE. The easiest way to access it under Windows is to download and install Tortoise SVN. After that, you can right-click on your Beyond the Sword\Mods\ folder and the new option "SVN Checkout" will appear. This will open a prompt where you enter Synthesis's SVN URL (https://subversion.assembla.com/svn/projectsynthesis/). This will create a new folder "Project_Synthesis" in your Mods folder. You will have to rename it to "RFC Synthesis" for the modmod to work. Afterwards, you only have to right-click on that folder and select "SVN Update" to get my most recent updates.

If you intend to use this feature, please mind that I don't guarantee stability, bug-freeness or balance of the not officially released versions. If you wish to comment on features in the SVN, please put these comments in spoilers with the spoiler name set as SVN, like this:
Spoiler for SVN:
You put =SVN after 'Spoiler'

  • Added back diplomatic victory; removed cultural victory
  • Added Empire State Building- +1 commerce per pop point in the city it's built in
  • Manhattan project now enables nukes ONLY for civs that have built the wonder themselves
  • This mod now has an icon/ official logo, artwork by me.
  • Misc. bugfixes/ text fixes

Spoiler for Previous Versions:

VERSION .2
  • Fixed the bug where certain civs somehow won the game via UHV.
  • In order to do that, I had to remove the Diplomatic Victory.

The penalty for number of cities for them is also halved. Certain minor colonial civs (Netherlands, Vikings, Germany, Rome/ Italy, Russia) get a 1/5th stability penalty for settling out of stability maps, along with the penalty for number of cities being halved.
  • Decaying resources
  • Can now convert 100% of production to espionage in a 4:1 hammer:espionage ratio.
  • Can now set city production as idle (don't know why would want to, but you can)

Complete List of Changes from RFC

Complete List of Features (as of version .025 and latest SVN version- may be missing some DoC stuff)

Spoiler:
The modmod is based on RFC Epic/Marathon 1.21 and therefore includes all features of RFC v1.187 for BtS unless otherwise noted.

GAME MECHANICS
# enabled Epic/Marathon speeds (RFCMarathon modmod by embryodead)
# Plague can only reduce units to 50% health, never kill them
# The Temple of Solomon spawns with Yerushalayim
# Added civ specific great people names (for all civs except Portugal, Khmer, Maya)
# Dynamic civilization names adapted to the new civics
# added a civic-specific leader switch mechanic:
# Germany and Spain switch to Hitler and Franco when fascist, respectively
# China and Russia switch to Mao and Stalin when communist, respectively
# Cixi and Nicholas II added as non-communist leaders
# Added the "rebirth" mechanism: some dead civs respawn as another civilization at a certain date (e.g. Rome as Italy), if the civ is still alive, no rebirth happens
# civilizations are more likely to collapse after a certain historical date (e.g. Rome after 476 AD)
# adapted the civic requirement mechanic for buildings and units from Sword of Islam
# all civilizations have their core areas revealed at spawn
# modified the AI to be more likely to adopt historical civics
(basically the "favourite civic" feature per civ and per era)
# added a war on spawn between Turkey and Arabia
# doubled the chance of war on spawn between Arabia and Egypt
# removed continent boundaries to help the AI
# some civilizations (Arabia, Mongolia, Turkey) fight their initial spawn wars longer
# conqueror events automatically trigger war
# AI conquerors now made to attack native cities immediately
# civilizations cannot be vassals of too far away civs until the discovery of Astronomy
# Fascist names now also with (Autocracy or Totalitarism) and no Parliament
# New total wars on spawn: Rome on Greece, Persia on Babylonia and Phoenicia
# Implemented the "birth in capital" mechanics, where certain civilization flip the city on their spawn plot on spawn (currently only used for Byzantium)
# reduced the intervals between early AI wars
# New victory type: Religious Victory
# Removed diplomatic victory
# Manhattan project now enables nukes only for civs that have built it
# Inquisitions-
1. To build an inquisitor: You must have researched Theology, have a state religion and have produced a “Holy Office” building in at least one city.

2. To use an inquisitor in a city: You must have your state religion previously established in a city and there must be at least one non-state religion established in the same city.

3. To use an inquisitor in a foreign city: The foreign civilization must have the same state religion as you, the foreign civilization must have an open borders agreement with you and the foreign city must also meet the requirements of prerequisite 2 above.
# Holy City Relocation
# Can now convert 100% of production to espionage in a 4:1 hammer:espionage ratio.
# Can now set city production as idle (don't know why would want to, but you can)
# The "colonial civs" (Portugal, Spain, England, France, Japan) get a halved stability penalty for owning cities out of their settler maps.
Only out of Europe and the Mediterranean. The penalty for number of cities for them is also halved. Certain minor colonial civs
(Netherlands, Vikings, Germany, Rome/ Italy, Russia) get a 1/5th stability penalty for settling out of stability maps, along with the penalty for number of cities being halved.
# Plantations now act like cities


BALANCE
# more Keshiks for Mongolia on spawn
# Phoenicia spawns a settler in Qart-Hadasht 820 BC (AI only)

# Rome and Greece receive research penalties from the Renaissance onward

INTERFACE
# Great people births are displayed again
# added individual "Dawn of Man" texts for each civilization
# the mouseover info box now displays tile stability in five categories:
# Core Area (dark green): no penalty, enemy cities here give a stability hit
# Historical Area (light green): no penalty
# Contested Area (yellow): no direct penalty, but indirect because this tile is part of the core of another civ
# Foreign Area (orange): penalty if number of controlled tiles exceeds a certain tolerance
# Foreign Core Area (red): like foreign area, but also indirect penalties because this tile is part of the core of another civ
# removed embassies and corporation headquarters from the wonders civilopedia

Ambitious. If you have any questions regarding DoC, feel free to ask.

Oh my god yes. I've wanted to do something like this for a really long time now, if you need help, simply ask.

But can I ask what Mods we're considering here so far?

Guys the original post is being edited frequently. I'm adding stuff from mods constantly, because there's a lot of sources I'm drawing from, and it will take a lot of time, so every now and then I save it so you guys can see my work. Check back periodically.

Heck yes, this looks amazingly awesome. I'm a history buff, so when it comes to New/Rebirth Civs and their Spawning/UHVs/UUs I can help you out as much as I can.

Wow... this is awesome. Truly, truly awesome. Thank you, good sir, for taking on such a grand project.

India could do with a Mughal rebirth, and if they change from Islam to either Hindu or Free Religion their dynamic name could change to reflect a modern India.

My biggest beef is the Carthage rebirth as Tunisia is they would make a far better Moorish rebirth, as al-Andalus. Tunisia itself didn't gain independence until the 50s. Al-Andalus would be harder to pull off of course (requiring the mixing up of Iberia in its entirety) but it would yield far greater results than Tunisia.

I also believe that the Incas would make for a better Argentinian rebirth, even though they are in slightly different parts of the world. Argentina was a far more economically powerful nation (being the second wealthiest in the world in the 1900s for a while, behind the US) as well as being a bigger player in global politics. We COULD just add Argentina as a nation, and have Peru as the rebirth, but the more nations there are the slower the game gets. The western Southern American nations (Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Columbia) could easily be represented by colonies of the Conquistador nation or as independents.

So my perfect list of rebirths would be:

Rome as Italy
Carthage as al-Andalus
Persia as the Safavid Empire
Babylon as modern Iraq
(Abbasid and Mamluk don't make all too much sense, though Mamluk makes more sense)
India as the Mughal Empire
Aztec as Mexico
Inca as Argentina
Vikings as Sweden
(I know their dynamic name already changes to that, but the Vikings, with their capital in OSLO, are very different from Sweden)

Of course, not all these rebirths would take place every 600AD game, only Italy, al-Andalus, Safavid, Mughal and Iraq would. Argentina, Mexico and Sweden would depend upon the collapses of their "mother" nation (though the likelihood of collapse should increase, really). In 3000BC games... fewer of these would take place.

Other changes I would include would be splitting the HRE and Germany, upping the militaristic power and aggressiveness of Arabia and rebalancing Italy and the Byzantines, both of which I find too strong at the moment. For Arabia, perhaps give the AI Arabia Camel Archers throughout the Middle East to encourage early and rapid expansion, as well as weakening the military prowess of the Byzantines. Also, give them fewer Settlers, at the beginning they don't need a bunch of useless desert cities dragging down their economy.

Late HRE could be dynamic-name-changed to Austria or Austria-Hungary. That would be rather nice.

As for extra nations on top of the rebirth ones previously mentioned, the list would be:

1. Korea (far above the rest)
2. Zulu/South Africa
3s. Canada, Brazil, Australia
4. Prussia OR Poland (I don't find this as urgent as others seem to, I think a strong independent or a minor civ would do, especially with a split HRE and Germany)

EDIT: I just want you to know, these are simply suggestions, haha. If you ignored all of them, I would still love you for taking the time to start such a grand project.

Why Carthage as Al-Andalus? I think Carthage spawning as the Almohads would be much more in line, seeing as they controlled Tunis as some point. Al-Andalus only had control up to Morocco. Also how about Babylon as the Timurids?

Either way, I'll start up a New Civ form for planning new nations tomorrow.

For the same reason I suggested Argentina as opposed to Peru; however, looking at their respective Wikipedia pages (I'm less of a history buff than you, Mr. Krug, though for my mere age of 15 I'm far more history-buffy than anyone else I know), I think their difference in terms of gameplay, significance, longevity, etc. is minimal enough it would make little difference either way. However, the Almohads' base in Africa is stronger than al-Andalus', and they DO have control of Tunis. I think you may be right, good sir. I think, I think, I think, of course...

The Mughals were a different civilization, barbarian invaders as far as I'm concerned. Maybe a barbarian wave could be scripted (with Islamic missionaries). I agree with the dynamic name change thing though.

Meh. Carthage->Tunisia is a stretch in and of itself. Carthage->al-Andalus is too much of a stretch. And that'll mess up the Portugal-Spain dynamic.

Actually, since I'm using Phoenicia, not Carthage, I might do a Phoenicia-> Lebanon rebirth. Although Lebanon is kinda insignificant, so I might just make this a dynamic name change.

Maybe... I'd have to make it so when they're reborn they start in Buenos Aires (they'd have to flip that city on spawn if someone controls it).

If there's one new Latin American country I'd add, it'd be Brazil, but as a minor civ with conditional spawn. Depends, I'll have to see speed and what not.

Indies or minors works. If we even implement this. Balance testing will be necessary.

All things Leoreth is contemplating for DoC which I will probably do too.

Yup. I suggested this on the DoC forums.

First two are in RFC: Civilizations in Abundance which I plan on incorporating. Balancing, especially of speed, would be necessary.

Those respawns are too much of a stretch... maybe, would have to think about it.

While Babylon->Timurid is a bit of a Stretch, I agree. I think that if you count Carthage as Carthage then the way to go are the Almohads for the respawn methinks, their Territory was quite respectable, so they weren't some small time empire.

As far as a Phonecia Respawn goes...wait for it...

Spoiler for It's Krug's favorite country (Excluding his current residence, the USA):
Spoiler for I want to go there some day:
Spoiler for It had control over South Lebanon in the 80s:
Spoiler for You know who I'm talking about:
ISRAEL
Yes, what contry would be more fun to play as than Israel? I don't care if Judaism isn't in DoC it needs to be put back in just so I can finally do an Israel run and conquer the entire Arabian Peninsula. They're an important nation, with a lot of power, and is in the Phonecian-ish area. Okay is it a stretch? Yes. But is it the best Stretch? HECK YES

When I'm done with this mod I might consider doing that. (I'm an anti-Zionist by the way )

Oh, and as for the Almohads... MAYBE. But it is a stretch. Let's just say this: if slowness is a problem, they're the first being tossed aside.

Alright, either way, I'll get a little mini-form for each new civ and their UU/UB/UP/UHV up tomorrow.
