Orion's Challenge v106H 2016-10-05

Orion’s Challenge Mod Comp v1.06H for BTS 3.17

Known Issues: If anyone can help resolve this issue please feel free to recommend any known fix you may have.
1. Button to create forest remains on, even though the current plot already has a forest.

Change History:

Version 1.06H Changes: 31 Oct 2008

1. Added new religion: Shinto, which is discoverd with existing tech Priesthood and is a fully capable religion. Game now has 8 religions to choose from.

Version 1.06G Changes: 21 Oct 2008

1. Fixed the bug that allowed AI civ to found more than one Holy city when playing limited religions. This was a very difficult bug to fix, but it is finally done. Rebuilt 2 functions in the CvGameUtils.py file and created a new function to do a centralized Holy City check.

2. Added an option to bypass the religious tech first to discover rule. In limited religions: If a player does not own a Holy City and the religion for the religious tech has not been founded yet, then the player can found the religion. Make sure the Choose religions game option is unchecked at the start of the game. Special thanks to Modifieda4 for the idea.

To play with bypass option: Set value to 1
To play without bypass option: Set value to 0

Version 1.06F Changes: 27 Sep 2008

1. Foreign Inquisitions! They have three prerequisites:

• There must be an open borders agreement with your civilization.
• The state religion of the civilization must match yours.
• Your state religion must be established in the city.

2. Created an option for foreign inquisitions in the GlobalDefinesAlt.xml file. If you want to play a game with foreign inquisitions, then simply change the default value to 1. If not, make sure the value is set to 0.

3. Fixed limited Religions bug that allowed the AI to found more than one Holy City. It was only a one line fix in the CvGameUtils.py file.

Version 1.06E Changes: 12 Sep 2008

1. Added a new building called the "Holy Office" as a prerequisite for producing Inquisitors. Holy Office building attributes:

Cost 240 hammers
+2 Gold (Simulates the confiscation of victom's personal property)
+1 happiness (Simulates city benefit for maintaining Religious Unity)
+1 Unhealthy (Simulates loss of population due to Inquisition)
Can turn one citizen into Priest
State Religion must be present in a city to build the Holy Office
Holy Office is now required to produce an Inquisitor

Version 1.06D Changes: 31 Aug 2008
1. Police Unit now has it's own combat group called "LAW ENFORCEMENT UNITS"
2. Police Unit now has 5 exclusive promotions that no other unit has: Riot Control! Each promotion adds a 10% less chance of a city revolt if the police unit is garrisioned in that city.
3. Limited Religions: Only one Holy City is allowed to be founded per Civ. The option is set in the GlobalDefinesAlt.xml file.

To play with limited religions: Set value to 1
To play without limited religions: Set value to 0

4. AI now founds a religion right on time.
5. Tech Theology ignores the limitation where only the "first civ to discover the tech founds a religion". Theology now allows a player to found one of the remaining religions if the player does not already own a holy city; even if the player is not the first to discover Theology.
6. Eliminated the religious tech exploit and guarantees a level playing field for all Civs.
