  1. Ahwaric
    Patch for Orbis modmod - version 0.24 P
    Requires Orbis 024 i.

    Unfortunatelly, I can't post exe files, so you have to unzip the exe file first. Then it should be easy.

    Please RUN ONE GAME IN PLAY NOW MODE TO CLEAR GAME OPTIONS(you do not have to play it, just start one)

    0.24 P (breaks saves :()
    Patch O had wrong CvGameCoreDLL.dll (and source files) in it - fixed, all changes from O should work now

    0.24 O (breaks saves)
    Tweaks/fixes

    Upgrading unit will under no circumstances give gold - free upgrade is the best you can get

    Water walking promotion is permanent, but spell sets its duration to 1 (so innate is permanant but from spell it will expire after 1 turn)
    Enhanced spell promotion duration setting - will overwrite only non-permanent or shorter duration effects
    Fireball & meteor units removed
    Fireball & breathe fire spells now work as pillar of fire does, but have range 1 and different strength (fireball 25-50% damage, breathe fire 40-75%)

    Windmill - removed extra from machinery (so fully upgraded has exactly the same yields as watermill, but watermill can be build in features without removing them, including ancient forest - is watermill too powerfull?)
    Moved watermill, windmill & workshop bonuses to mercantilism
    Yurt now produces 1 , aul 1 2 . Both get +1 from horseback riding and +1 for hippus. Requires base yield of the tile to be at least 1 (so buildable for everyone on plains, grass & tundra, on deserts for malakim and on ice for illians and doviello)
