    Background:
    The mod adds Poland as a playable civilization to the Beyond the Sword Expansion. In
    comparison with other standard mods adding new civilizations, this mod focus also on
    couple other things:
    – adds new graphic style for many units – from axeman to jetfighter,
    – adds voices for units and music themes based on Bogurodzica and F. Chopin - Etiuda
    C-dur,
    – uses animated 3D leaderheads for Casimir and John III Sobieski,
    – further development – we plan to add world wonders and more units with unique
    graphic style in the future. Modularity is very good solution for users – you can
    choose for example wich wonders you would like to use and wich not.
    – It works very well both with translation to Polish made by fans available on
    http://civ.org.pl and official one made by Cenega.


    Instalation Notes:

    The mod works only on Beyond The Sword Expantion (any version of patch) – and uses
    modularity (sometimes called also Plug & Play option). Shortly it allows to merge
    different mods easly – without or less XML edition.

    To install this modular mod you need to follow this steps:

    1. Install the mod to your Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond
    the Sword\Mods
    Directory. From patch 3.13 the game should run without
    problems.

    2. If you have older version of BTS (3.00 – 3.03) you need to open
    CivilizationIV.ini file to tell it to start looking for these Modules. (Note: This
    only needs to be done once).
    To locate your CivilizationIV.ini file, Locate your My Documents folder (Note:
    This is a regular windows folder not a Civilization Folder) . Inside this folder
    should be another folder called My Games and inside this folder will be the
    Beyond The Sword folder.
    Double click on the File CivilizationIV.ini. Search for line:
    Modular XML Loading
    Now right below this line should be a line that appears like this:
    ModularLoading = 0
    Or like this:
    ModularLoading = 1
    If yours has a 0 in the line: Modular loading is not on and mod will not work -
    change the 0 to a 1 so that it looks like the second example. Upon completing
    that task save the file and close it. As mentioned before you don't need to do
    this if you have 3.13 or newer version of BTS.

    3. The problem with modularity might be when the new module adds new sounds
    or for example new diplomacy texts. If you don't merge modules you don't need
    to worry about it. Those files aren't supported by modularity, so you need to
    merge (edit with any notepad-like tool or tool called WinMerge wich will show
    you differencies) files:
    Mods\Polish Empire\Assets\XML\Audio\Audio2DScripts.xml
    Mods\Polish Empire\Assets\XML\Audio\Audio3DScripts.xml
    Mods\Polish Empire\Assets\XML\Audio\AudioDefines.xml
    Mods\Polish Empire\Assets\XML\GameInfo\CIV4DiplomacyInfos.xml
    with files from new module
    Optionally visit Plug and Play forum for further information and merged XML
    Sound files http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=255
