Find out how you stack up against the major players of today.

Free Play
A "Free Play" mode has been added for players who want to customize the active victory conditions and game speed. To access, navigate to Single Player>Create Game>Advanced Setup, and then change the active ruleset to either "Earth 2018 (Huge - Free Play)" or "Earth 2018 (Standard - Free Play)" depending on which map size you'd prefer. You can entirely disable victory conditions if you'd prefer to play at your own pace.

Compatibility
No DLC are required
This mod does not work in a normal game; only play the scenarios when this mod is active
This mod should be compatible with other mods that only make UI or AI changes. It probably won't work with most other types of mods.

Multiplayer
To play this mod in multiplayer, you will also need the mod More Civs Allowed in Multiplayer
This mod has been successfully tested in Hot Seat mode. It has not been tested in online mode, so I can make no guarantees if/how well it will work.

Language
This mod is English only at this time.

Notes
Ruin/Shipwreck Crash: If your game crashes when you excavate a ruin/shipwreck, please let me know where and on what map. I originally had the game place these resources on the map, but later learned that preplaced ruins crash the game when excavated, so I attempted to remove them. I may have missed one or two, so if you run into this issue please let me know and I will resolve it.
Loading/Turn Times: This game takes a while to load, since there is so much on the maps. The turn times are not bad, however, so if you are experiencing long turn times try reducing your settings or playing on the smaller of the two maps.
Balance: This game is not balanced. My intent was to make the strengths of the civs reflect the strengths of their real world counterparts. Therefor, the easiest civs to play as and get a win will be America, Russia, and China. It becomes progressively more difficult to play as a smaller or less well developed nation.
Game Length: The scenario takes approximately 100 turns to win a peaceful victory, and it has a turn limit of 240. I am open to rebalancing the length of the game based on feedback I receive from players.

Terrific mod! Feels like playing contemporary power politics.
The world map is almost identical, but since the mod came out not long ago, there are a lot of bugs (I could not even finish the stroke XD).
