[BTS Total Mod] Thomas' War

Thomas War v3.5a
Previous versions removed after 6954 downloads!

DOWNLOAD HERE


PLEASE READ BEFORE DOWNLOADING:
: Due to size constraints regarding the download, by default the mod includes static leader heads and wonder movies. Animated leader heads and wonder movies are available to download and are installed similar to a patch by either unzipping them into the Thomas' War directory or copying the Assets directory over. Note: if you are experiencing significant MAFS it is not recommended you switch to animated leader heads or wonder movies as the game runs better and is smaller in size with their static versions.

Thomas' War is a big mod and not really recommended for lower end systems. Also, ALL big mods do have problems with MAFS. It is generally not recommended to play with huge maps and max number of civs.

The Patch to go to 3.5a can be found HERE. (Note: if you are reading this, the above download already includes the patch).

Animated Leader Heads can be found HERE

Static Leader Heads can be found HERE

Animated Wonder Movies can be found HERE

Static Wonder Movies can be found HERE

JEELEN has updated his scenarios. The newest versions can be found in the following links: 18 Civs Huge Earth and 1066 AD for Thomas' War.

Thomas' War does not use its own DLL so you can incorporate any custom DLL you wish (such as better BTS AI or one that allows a greater number of civs).


Repeat, if you were experiencing significant MAFS with previous versions it is not recommended you switch to animated leader heads or wonder movies as the game runs better and is smaller in size with their static versions.

However, the animated and static versions do not break saves so it is possible to begin the game with animated versions and install and switch over to static later in the game.

For Multi-player, everyone must have the same files and version (so if one is using static everyone has to use static).

~~~

The aim of this mod is to try to simulate an expansion pack; to significantly add to the game without significantly changing the core game play. This doesn’t mean that new stuff wasn’t added, but instead when you first load up the mod you won’t have to relearn how to play or the tech-tree or which units to shoot for. When I did add something, I tried my best to not only make sure they had a unique role or function (to accomplish this many units and buildings have original python based abilities), but also attempt to keep things balanced, fun, in the style of civ 4, and with historical basis.

~~~

Hosted at Atomic Gamer, I know there's a download wait but it's more stable than File Front (which erased all my files for no reason a week ago), plus not everyone can download from File Front anyway. There is a mirror for File Front listed on the download page.

7zip and Installation

The file is compressed with 7zip which can be downloaded for free at:

http://www.7-zip.org/

However other programs can unzip it. Then simply unzip into your BTS mods directory:

(Default path usually something like firaxis games/sid civilization iv/beyond the sword/mods)

Some unzipping programs create an extra folder which can cause the mod to not load. If you check the file tree after you install it should go:

Beyond the Sword/Mods/Thomas' War/Assets...

With the Assets folder in the Thomas' War folder as above.

If it created an extra folder it would go something like:

Beyond the Sword/Mods/ThomasWar3.5a/Thomas' War/Assets...

Or some variant, with basically an extra folder saying Thomas' War. The second Thomas' War folder (containing Assets) is actually the mod, the first is just an extra folder holding the mod. You need to move the second Thomas' War folder (containing Assets) into the Mods directory.

Compatibility

Since Thomas’ War does not use a custom DLL it has some cross patch capability. I’ve tested and it works on 3.13 and 3.17. Make sure you are patched to at least 3.13 or you will have a missing interface.

See thread for GFC error: failed to initialize the primary control theme

Multiplayer

Yes. Currently I’d say it’s about 95% multiplayer compatible. I exclusively play it multiplayer – though with half humans, half AI players. I’ve played full games without 00S errors, I’ve played a few with 1 or 2. It becomes more stable with each version. Keep in minding having different versions or files in your mod than other people hinders multiplayer as does having opponents with drastically under-specced machines.

For Multi-player, everyone must have the same files and version (so if one is using static everyone has to use static).

Recommendations

Epic Game Speed (I tried to balance the game around epic)

Medium or higher graphics (Due to the nature of custom graphics, buttons and models sometimes don’t display correctly on low. Even my new title screen is blurry and pixilated on low)

English (I don’t have the time or ability to translate this mod and non-English settings will be missing entries. If you load up in a different language it will direct you to switch to English in my broken translation of the core languages)

Just a note, the bigger you make the game (#of players, graphics, etc) the more likely to cause a MAF later on. There is troubleshooting (including for MAFs) in post 1.

Show enemy and friendly moves turned off (this greatly decreases time between turns, as does quick combat options).

GFC error: failed to initialize the primary control theme


First, make sure the mod is installed in the right place.

It should be installed in the main BTS mods directory (default path usually something like program files/firaxis games/sid civilization iv/beyond the sword/mods) NOT the MODS directory found in My Games.

Second, the mod folder needs to be named Thomas' War as the game checks folder names. Please do not change the name.

If neither of the above work please post in the thread for additional assistance.

Missing Interface


This can occur for several reasons.

The game being played from the My Games MODS directory instead of the main BTS mods directory (default path usually something like program files/firaxis games/sid civilization iv/beyond the sword/mods)

Not being patched to at least BTS 3.13 or 3.17

Sometimes, just alt-tabbing and minimizing-maximizing the mod can correct the error.

Having a conflicting mod in your custom assets (such as BUG or BAT) please remove them from the custom assets and try.

Additionally, playing with Vista or Civ IV Complete can cause problems (please post in the thread for additional assistance if this is the case).

If you are still missing an interface after trying all the steps above you should check to see if you are also experiencing a missing interface with other big user-made mods from the forum (such as Extra, Next War Advanced, Fall From Heaven, Rise of Mankind, History in the Making, etc. etc.) If you are then the problem is most likely not caused by the Thomas' War files, but rather something with your installation or custom assets. If this is the case, you are probably better served posting a thread in the Technical Support forum.

If none of the above works, please enable python exceptions. (Open up the _Civ4Config file found in the Beyond the Sword folder. Search for:

; Set to 1 for no python exception popups
HidePythonExceptions = 1

Set to 0. Reload the game and post in the thread the error message that comes up for additional assistance.

v3.5a Changes:
Spoiler:
This patch mostly addressed balance issues raised in the thread as well as bugs pointed out to me. Hopefully, this constitutes the final release of 3.5 taking it out of it's beta phase. However, bugs are always easy to miss and I will address new bugs as they are pointed out to me.

Scenarios:
Scenarios now once again work with the mod, in response I have re-collected all the user made scenarios for Thomas' War on the forums and included them in the download.
Updated the 'Next War' scenario to work with Thomas War
Included a few blank Earth maps as per request.

UUs and UBs:
I re-examined every civ;'s UU and UB and re-balanced them accordingly. As a result, some civs have had their UU or UB changed. I feel the current settings are more balanced and unique than the previous arrangement.
Akkads' UB bonus is now +2 hammers
Timurids' UB bonus is now +33% trade route yield.
Chams' UB bonus is now +50% Research, +25% Culture during Golden Ages
Assyrias' UB now gives raw Great General GPP
Costs of many of the UU's have been changed
Brazil's UU now replaces the Musketman and has a chance of capturing defeated units
Hurrian's UU now increases raw flanking damage
Prussia's UU now increases raw collateral damage
A few others, I don't remember at the moment.

Wonders:
A few of the Wonders have been given addition python based abilites to make them more unique.
Ishtar Gate now also puts you in contact with all civs on the map (espionage bonus down to 2 (from 3) for each religious building.
KGB now places rival civs in anarchy (a reverse Taj Mahal of sorts). No longer grants the free promotion, espionage bonus down to 15% (from 20%) in all cities.
Cure for Cancer now acts similar to the Longevity wonder from Civ 3, i.e. cities now grow by 2 population. No longer gives the happiness bonus.
Art of War made cheaper, gives Artist points instead of General points

Traits:
A few of the traits have been re-balanced.
Agricultural now gives a 10% food stored bonus on city growth instead of the strict numbers it was giving before (this was done to correct a bug) Additionally, gives double production speed for the Haramut-Yusef national wonder (the game doesn't show double speed for wonders).
Scientific Trait now gives a free scientist at Classical era, free golden age at Renaissance era, free tech at Modern era. Also, double speed of Oxford University national wonder.
Mercantile now only gives +10% for food and hammers with trade, additionally, Barter Economy now only gives +5%. Great Lighthouse made more desirable to the AI.
Expansive Worker production bonus lowered to 25%, no longer applies to the Work Boat, still applies to Clonejacks.

Victory Conditions:
Added Commercial Victory (the gold amount needs feedback and probably future balancing.
Religious Victory threshold lowered to 80% from 85%.

Misc:
Future, 'Next War' units have been re-balanced, particularly the Clones. Added more interaction between the future unit classes, as well as actually made the Biological Warfare Unit and Promotion usefull.
Added many, many in-game notifications for previous promotions/wonders/events. So now they will inform you if you stole gold, or healed after battle, which bonus the Golden Dawn gave that turn, if a crusader was born, etc. etc. etc.

Those are just the 'highlights' off the top of my head. There's also a ton more balance and bug changes.

Python Map Script Code by Johnny Smith

10 New Civs:
Spoiler:

People have asked why my civs aren’t modular. The reason being is that for many of them I use python to give their units/buildings unique abilities. Also, while I think many modular civs are well done I more or less make mine from scratch (occasionally borrowing ideas or Civlopedia XML) to make sure they fit my mod and the abilities I’ve given my other civs.

29 New Leaders:
Spoiler:

Colonization Assets:
Spoiler:

Leaderheads, City Sets, Units, Marsh Terrain, Buildings, Sounds and a bunch of other assets from Colonization have been added to Thomas’ War.

Ecoterrorists Event; (Chance to lose an improvement built on wetlands if you are running Environmentalism.)

Please See the Thread (post 1) for troubleshooting. Also please refrain from posting questions or comments in the comment section. I would like to keep that area open for announcements concerning the download. Plus, if you ask a question in the comments section I will probably miss it. Posting in the thread or PM me is the best way to get an answer for troubleshooting.

Please rate if you enjoy the mod.

Thank you and Enjoy!

File Size: 371 MB Zipped, 720 MB Unzipped

As stated above, due to size constraints with the download by default the mod includes static leader heads and wonder movies. Animated versions can be downloaded and installed. It is not recommended to do so if you were experiencing multiple MAFS with previous versions as the default 'static' download is smaller in size and will run better.

The animated leader heads adds an additional 755 MB
The animated wonder movies (thanks to Arian) adds an additional 263 MB

Civics
Spoiler:
Redid my civics. In addition to changing a few of the old ones, added a new one to each category:




Buttons and Python Descriptions
Spoiler:
The unit section of the civlopedia is still broken, but to help alleviate this I added button descriptions for all the python based units and wonders:



Also, added unique buttons for every unit, leader, building, civic that didn’t already have it. No more five leaders with Julius Ceaser’s button.

Dynamic and New Events
Spoiler:
Added the Volcano and Tornado mod by hrochland, GarretSidzaka, Fierabras

Took their example and added a few of my own for flooding, dust storms, blizzard, monsoon, disease, forest fire

Added new events and/or quests, many of which are tied to the new religions or civics:

Lost Civilization
Tribal Religions
Rabbits!
Shrimp
Sea Monster
Blessing of Varuna
Revolutionary Engineering
The Road to Valhalla (Quest)

Fixed:
Temple Prostitution (Quest)
Her Majesty’s Secret Service (Quest)

Religion
Spoiler:
Added the Just Another Religion Mod [BtS / Modular] v 1.1 by Refar, JustATourist, JohnnySmith

It’s slightly modified than their version to fit into my mod. I already had Hellinism, however I still believe having more than 8 religions in the game will unbalance it so in order to play with the new religions select the ‘Choose Religion’ option

Thomas' War Base Change List Cont:
Spoiler:

Misc:
Spoiler:

Updated for BTS 3.17

Several New Unit Categories
• Diplomat Units
• Espionage Units
• Missile Units
• Settler Units
• Worker Units
• Animal Units
• Doomsday Devices

Added More Unique Unit and City Set Graphics and Properly Adjusted Building Size and City L System (Ethnic Citystyles by GeoModder)

Most Victory Conditions Made More Difficult

Changes to Icons and Names - Additionally some aesthetic remodeling of the tech tree

Balance Adjustments to Existing Units, Civs, Buildings, Traits, etc



New Traits:
Spoiler:

Strategic (Str)
• -50% Cost to Upgrade Units
• +25% Production of Advanced Recon and Conventional Missile Units

(Note: I had originally accomplished this through SDK – with code done by Frizzimod – but I’ve been having trouble doing a new complete DLL with all my changes since the patch. So, for the time being I accomplish this trait by giving a Cheap Upgrades promotion to all units. It’s functionally the same, only the interface looks slightly clumsy and crowded. It is a straight bonus across the board, so please no complaints in the thread saying this trait is overpowered because it looks like it gives a hundred promotions to a hundred different units. In a future version I’ll reincorporate it into the SDK).

Diplomatic (Dip)
• +10% Espionage Points in all cities
• Free Mobility (+1 Movement) Promotion for Diplomat and Espionage Units
• Double Production Speed of Brothel, Tavern

Mercantile (Mer)
• +25% Food from Trade Routes
• +25% Production from Trade Routes
• Double Production Speed of Customs House

Expanded Espionage System:
Spoiler:

(Note: Originally I had a modified version of the Super Spies mod by Trojan Sheep. Since the patch I have been having trouble compiling a new DLL from all the various mods I incorporated, specifically in regards to keeping it multiplayer compatible. In a future version Trojan Sheeps’ excellent Super Spies mod will be put back in. The remaining espionage system remains expanded, however less than my original intentions.)

Additional Credits:
Spoiler:
Specialist Stacker by bmarnz
Thanks to Ekmek for many of the leaderheads
Thanks to asioasioasio for many of the buildings
Thanks to seZereth for unit, terrain, wonder graphics
Thanks to Chugginator for unit graphics
Thanks to Rabbit, White, Chamaedrys, Bakuel, Polycrates for ethnic unit styles
Thanks to fk2006 for button graphics
Thanks to bmarnz for python code
Thanks to Gir for wonder python code
Thanks to Arian for some wonder movies

As very little of the new art was done by me, I know I’ve missed a lot of people. With the archives crashing in the past it’s become harder to go back and see who made what. If I left you out of the credits - or did not mention you above - it wasn’t intentional, please tell me and I’ll include you next time I update the version. Everyone I did list probably did a lot more than I put their name next to.

Just a general thanks to everyone who has contributed their hard work to civfanatics.

Please feel free to use whatever is of my own design in whatever mod you’d like

Fantastic to see the religious victory aswell as the new future features. I like to go for a futuristic religious theocracy. The terraforming and new terrain features look epsecially promising.

Keldath,

Since it was Overlord that first got me into major mods for Civ IV, I decided to be a random nice guy and upload it to MegaUpload for you. I'll edit this post with a link to it after it's finished.

I'm going a 'health route' building the early wonder that takes out all unhealth from buildings. This will be powerful later on, and going for Hanging gardens. I hope to make huge cities, with the aid of doctors.

Does the mod play OK with "no espionage" ? There are some big culture bonuses from all that converted espionage. Actually a 'culture domination' game could be on with this option.

In my game Sitting bull was way behind in tech when I destroyed him, but Pacal is a good way ahead. Just a note ; it seems the AI is playing OK.

Hey everyone, sorry to just post this then disappear for a week or so. I was about to go on vacation and wanted to get at least some version of this mod out before I went. Then, when I got back I was just swamped with stuff.

Anyway, just to let you know, I'm still working on this. Originally I had compiled a new DLL that included a bunch of changes (among them Super Spies, Frizzimod, wateranimals, one of the ones that increases the number of max civilizations playable, etc.) The patch messed this up and I'm still compiling one (it's taking longer than usual cause namely I have to find all the various mods I had included originally, not to mention re-install civ so I can have a clean version of the SDK). In order to get at least some version of this mod out - cause it was already delayed so much - I did some last minute fixes to include some SDK features through XML, hence the untidy Strategic trait being done with promotions. This will be fixed.

So this will be done in the near future. If there are any specific mods you'd like me to include in a future version please let me know. (FYI, though the more mods, specifically DLL changes you add the more out of synch problems in multiplayer so I may release it as a separate single player future version).

Now, as for multiplayer, I've played 5 games. 4 had no problems, one has one out of synch error. So there is still something that crops up. Please let me know.

Besides that I'm always adding new graphics, compiling a more complete changelog/credit list etc. I released a small update for this already (it's at v2.1, so try the latest version - in the future i'll release these as patches instead of complete re-downloads).

Anyway, I hope you're all enjoying it. I'll try to get to all the PM's and questions in this thread soon. Let me know any issues and I'll explain my reasoning for any change you don't agree with.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on what I'm working on.
Thanks!!!

I'm having a problem with starting the mod. I have it downloaded and when I start it up I see the background, but do not see the menu. Anyone have any ideas how to correct this?

I have BTS 3.17 installed. I would like to fix this. I was looking forward to trying this out. Any help would be appreciated.

if you are ever doing any more patches for this game, can you add Wicca and Scientology into the game? Those are two modern new religions in the world and you can set it to the modern era. Neo-Paganism Tech to get Wicca, and Modern Literature for Scientology (you can add a wonder in there too).

I know but they still exist and new to this world, Scientology is about 56 years old, and Wicca is 54 years old. This new religions can be added since they do exist and They can be added to the game to add a little favor.

I am also kinda surprise that there is hardly any events occurred when I was playing this game. Be nice if you can increase the event occurrence rate up so we can get some events. Add in some new events as well that includes the new great people, like a doctor found a cure of a <insert disease here> event, or a modern event of a lawyer suing something that will be removed.
