Socra's Depth Expansion (Quo's Combined Tweaks) 2.0

Adds Abilities

  1. Socra
    I decided to add a little more depth and theme to each Civilization's traits.

    This is the Beta, so it is a modded Quo's Combined Tweaks file (version 6.0.9) . This is ultimately going to be a simple and seperate add-on mod, so I will be getting that done shortly. Wanted to get this out for people who had been waiting.

    (You will need to turn off the original Quo's for this mod to work atm.)

    Mod Dependencies (MUST HAVE) :
    - Thunder and Steel Unique Units
