[WARLORDS] Modern Warfare Mod 2016-10-05

Modern Warfare v1.20
For Warlords v2.08

Modern Wafare Mod focuses on increasing the diversity of modern times. It has a revised late-era tech tree, supporting nearly 30 new unit classes, from early tanks through to transport helicopters. Players in the later eras will have to deal with nuclear submarines, tactical nukes and cruise missiles. Early eras are also diversified with new classes and graphics. Unit graphics for each region (Europe, Asia, Americas, Africa and Mid-East) are also now specific.

The latest, and last CIV Warlords version, Modern Warfare 1.20 expands on v1.0 and Patch 1.05 by greatly balancing out the added units and technologies. Classes that were once represented by only a handfull of units now have been filled out to give a breadth of variety. Take the new 'Armor' class representing Cold War tanks: In version 1.05 there were only 2 types, the American M60A2, and the British Centurion MKV. Now there are no less than 8: the US M60A2, British Centurion MKV, 3 versions of the Soviet T-55 and 3 versions of the German Leopard 1.

Late game warfare has also been expanded to include covert opertations. With the discovery of Extremism, you can build the invisible extremist unit, which can only be seen by special forces. Make sure you guard your borders! Extremists are valuable to weaker civs, as they cost little - but can do great damage pillaging the resources of their larger neighbors!

We've heard your comments, and there's been a lot of changes thanks to all of you who have posted your ideas. First, most unit classes now have team color. You no longer need to be an expert in modern fighting vehicles and aircraft to tell who is attacking you! Second, the unit scale has been completely re-done. Figure units are no longer on the same scale as vehicles. Your soldiers will now be larger and more visible, abet still slightly smaller than the standard CIV scale. Vehicles are no longer massive as well, they've been scaled down significantly, though they are still larger and easier to see than in standard CIV.

SDK/Python changes have also made their way into Modern Warfare in version 1.20. Artillery units and large warships do ranged bombardments now. Perhaps the biggest change has been with the addition of cruise missiles and the revised tactical nukes. Missile Cruisers are now more dangerous than ever, having the capability to hold 4 cruise missiles. The tactical nuke system has also been re-done, giving them a set range. Watch your shores carefully now, the sea just got deadlier!

The aircraft system has also been re-worked significantly. Aircraft will now gain experience just like other units. With 7 new promotions, your air fleet can be diversified to meet the mission at hand. Beyond that, most aircraft have had changes to make the gameplay more fun and realistic.

Modern Warfare 1.20 is the last update for CIV Warlords. There's the possibility of some small game-play patches and graphics updates, but there will no longer be any large patches/updates for the mod. This is not the end though, as you can all expect a Beyond the Sword version of Modern Warfare in the near future.

From the whole Modern Warfare team, ENJOY!
