Wow, I'm quite impressed. I first read about your mod over on Apolyton, and am glad to finally see it released. Playing an early game as the Americans on warlord to get the swing of things, and I like the progression of tech and the new bonus resources. New city improvements are also great, some early confusion over obelisk/shrines but easily fixed I look forward to playing this mod all day. Thanks.

Thanks. I am glad you like it so far. Please let me know if you run into any bugs.

I am thinking of adding a new tech to the industrial age
Tech - city planning - it would allow for the new improvement - park and the eiffel tower would be moved to here

the park would be a happines improvement and would help to reduce pollution

what do people think of this?

I've run into a lot of crashes with errors in civilization3.exe, and I'm not sure why. Some save files won't let me progress past a certain turn, I've tried saving and replaying from an earlier point, but still the crash. I even did a clean install and installation of the mod and still ran into the problem. Still, nice job, this was a pretty monumental effort.

Oh, btw, I love the wondersplash images....was quite happy with them when i built the Circus Maximus and the Taj Mahal.

EmprorCoopinius,

I had that problem too. I corrected it by making sure all the unit files were in the right directory.

Did you download all the additional units and copy some of the existing units over to some of the new unit directories?

I.e. U need to copy the scout files to the ranger directory. There are about 10 you need to do this to.

Now, here is the problem I have:

I am not sure if it is mend to be this way or not. I cant lift the worker tiles in the city to make people happy. I can only move one tile. It just seems very add.

Please let me know if it should be this way or how can I correct this. I think the problem is that I cant change the people to entertainer, scientist or tax collector even though I have researched the needed tech.

I was afraid people might run into trouble with the units. I will add a more comprehensive section to the readme about this. In the meantime, thanks Victorvanwavere

I don't know why you can't change the citizens, I have run into that problem myself. I meant to ask someone about it but forgot to. I may have to just return these to the way they were, which wouldn't be horrible.

Here are a few more changes I am making:

Change to Starting Techs:
Expansionistic - Farming - Was Pottery
Militaristic - Warrior Code - used to have option of wheel
Scientific - Alphabet - was bronze working
Religious - Ceremonial Burial
Industrious - Mining - was Masonry
Commercial - The Wheel - was alphabet

This makes more sense to me than what they had.

What do you think of this idea? Just as the expansionsit civs have the ranger what if there were special units available to the other characteristics. Industrious civs could start with workers that move two. Militaristic could have a better warrior, maybe start with a 2/2 warrior. need to think of something for the other three.

While installing the various files for the paratrooper (as SpecOps,) I noticed that in the SpecOps.ini all the .flcs are titled SpecOps_action.flc instead of paratrooper_action.flc.

Is this a mistake as all the previous ones I've done so far had matching names? (Calvary.ini = Bandit_action.flc, etc). I renamed it just in case.

[edit]

Also, there were file locations for .wavs and .ambs in SpecOps.ini as well. Is it ok if no file exists there and will 'skip' over it, or will it cause an error?

3 files, huh?

OK Kal-el, I get it. There are three files. File 1, file 2 and file 3. That's three in total. Except for all the unit animations, that is.

I'm not an experienced "modder" for Civ3. Any chance that you could gather all those unit downloads in one that I can download and unzip? I could probably - given time - find and download all of them, but I'm not quite sure which parts of those downloads to use and where they go.

If you could provide a single download of the new units, then I would be sure that all of the files went into the right folders. It ought to be possible to zip it up from your own installation.

Ofc. that would probably make four (that is, 4) downloads, so you would have to edit several posts. That might be a somewhat boggling enterprise

Thanks for the effort, btw. It does look interesting.

I agree. It' s taking me forever to round up all the files.

I've never modded before tonight either, but from guesstimating:

If in doubt, check the .ini file to see if its needed. Some of the files have lots of things, which I suspect aren't needed like .pcx files and whatnot. I just looked line by line and copied the .flc's, .wavs and .ambs as appropriate since I never saw anything else but those file types.

Except for that SpecOps thing, which I'm thinking is a mistake, and I renamed it, but what do I know.

===========================

Oh yeah. I keep crashing when I click things too quickly. Odd.

[edit]

Or even not clicking fast ... after 8 Crash To Desktops I think I'll give it some more time.

Coda,

Yes, it will skip over any blank file locations.

As for the file names, it doesn't matter. You could have a unit named Fandango, and use .wav and .amb files from another unit, as long as you have the correct file location & names in the .ini file.

I'll be more specific with my CTDs to be more helpful:

-Clicking the down arrow for a pulldown menu when a city has finished production and pops up asking for something else to be chosen.

-Clicking the "Unit Button" within the city screen when you want to change current production.

-(Quickly?) double clicking to zoom in a city

-(Quickly?) right clicking to see a description of some sort.

If it was just with a unit, I figured the problem would be something related with that, but it seems hard not to CTD in my case. I would really like to try this out past my 5th turn, and combined with Snoopys new graphic pack it feels like I'm already playing a new game

Kal-El,

This mod looks very interesting, and I look forward to using it. However, I am reluctant to for three reasons:

1. There is no all-in-one zip file. We don't all share you're enthusiasm for gathering files from all over.

2. Bugs have not all been worked out yet.

3. It seems you may never be content with this mod. Make some decisions and STICK WITH THEM. Yes, features can be improved, etc. but let the paint dry before applying a second coat, please.

That said, I appreciate the volume of work you have put into this already. This mod has (IMO) the potential to be the best mod to date I've seen anywhere.

Kal-el,

Great work on this one! I like what I see so far.

My only problem is the game keeps crashing at 680 AD. It doesn't matter whom I play as, what units I'm building, number of cities, etc. Just keeps crashing.

Ok, I get the point. You guys want all the unit files in one easy to download pack. I will do that. I think it will clear up a lot of the crashes, because I have played this thing through without any hang-ups.

Coda,

Not sure about the clicking thing, don’t know why quickly clicking something versus slowly clicking something would make a difference. Somebody please help out with this one.

The reason I renamed some of the files in the SpecOps folder was simply that I idin’t like having three units with paratrooper files. This was before I started working on the mod and I simply forgot to change it back. I left some of them as paratrooper because they are part of the .amb file and I don’t know how to edit those.

Satis5d,

1. There is no all-in-one zip file. We don't all share you're enthusiasm for gathering files from all over.

Well, I thought by putting the links to all the units in the post above that would make it easier for everybody (I know I just did that last night/this morning), but I understand that that is still a hassle for people who have not been keeping up with the new units. Obviously with this mod in mind I have been keeping track of any new unit that would fit the bill. I will put the units.zip together today and hopefully have that up by tonight.

2. Bugs have not all been worked out yet.


It is in beta, I put it up on the boards so that people could help me work out all the bugs.

3. It seems you may never be content with this mod. Make some decisions and STICK WITH THEM. Yes, features can be improved, etc. but let the paint dry before applying a second coat, please.

Again, it is beta, so it is still in flux. I just thought I would throw my new ideas out there to see what anybody thought. What do you think? Do you like the park idea? The new starting techs is definitely going in, if for no other reason I forgot to change the scientific civs from Bronzeworking which with mining is now a level two tech.
