    [TOT] Does the Sci-Fi Scenario (Lalande 21185) have an actual story?

    It's certainly true that the terrain and research techs have a lot of lore, see Describe.txt, but is there any story beyond that? For instance, none of the races are actually explained? Or what "Eco-Reactive Incidents" exactly are? Funnily though the manual describes the barbarians in the...

    [TOT] The Centauran Gambit

    I don't know how many people have played the Extended Original mod as the Centaurans, but poking through the events file I discovered that there isn't a reciprocal mission to Earth. Instead, the spaceship arrival script applies to all civs, so the aliens end up colonizing their own planet...

    Unit Mask Template for Catfish's ToT Replacement Graphics 1

    Created as a complement to @Mercator's CivSprite (and/or SpriteGen), this package contains template files to simplify creating static unit sprites based on @Catfish's Original Graphics replacement modpack. It contains four files: units_alpha.bmp – Colour-adjusted unit sprites...

    [TOT] MGE Conversions

    Spun off from my posts in the Modified Scenarios Workshop thread, this is a progress tracker for my work to update the original MGE scenario roster for compatibility with Test of Time. It also serves as a sounding board for input on rebalances and graphical updates. The plan is to post...

    [TOT] Civ 2.5: Civ3 in Test of Time

    Civ 2.5 is a mod idea I've harboured for a while to back-port Civilization III into Test of Time. This is an early demo to test the preliminary design; it is built on the base game with quality-of-life features from TOTPP. Current features include: All base game units from Civilization III...

    [TOT] The Day After: Redux

    "The Day After" is a scenario by Dorian Credé for Fantastic Worlds that I first discovered through @Blake00's archiving efforts here. Essentially an advanced vanilla start with a post-apocalyptic flair, it was basically playable except for one key oversight: the horrendous level of on-map...

    Civ 2: Test of time question regarding limit on adding new units

    So if I want to add new units to the end of a unit in the fantasy version of TOT list how do I go about doing that? Do I just need to add the names units to the units list in the Rules.txt and corresponding sprites/sounds? Is there a hard limit to how many units I can add? Thanks for any...

    The Spanish Civil War v4 for ToT + ToTPP + Lua - Development Thread [ON HOLD]

    Introduction to SCW v4 I first started designing and creating the Spanish Civil War scenario for Civ2 MGE back in 2002 when I was just a teenager. Back then I reached José Pellón (a.k.a. @Kramsib) in the Spanish Apolyton Site for permission to use his wonderful Iberian Peninsula map. The first...

    This thread is meant to serve two related purposes. The first is to provide a general Q&A thread for Lua and related topics. The second is to provide a link index for questions and their answers, as well as other resources. I'll edit this post periodically to add links to the questions and...

    [TOT] Installing Test of Time in Linux Mint 20

    EDIT: Test of Time Patch Project v0.16 was released, so a couple instructions are no longer necessary. I've edited the relevant sections (but didn't bother changing TOTPP15 references). It's probably worth checking this page to see if a later version is available before starting. This thread...

    Uploading map files

    Apparently you can't upload MP. files for Civ2 to the forum. There are still a few of us dinosaurs around, and it does seem like an obvious omission.

    TOTPP movement multipliers

    Quick-ish question: when playing scenarios made for TOTPP, should I always check the movement multipliers box? When enabled, it makes unit movement on railroads NOT unlimited. I am not sure if this is intended for all TOT scenarios (I was just playing Techumseh's newest, Burma), just curious if...

    [TOT] [TOTPP] Custom Music Patch

    I have taken advantage of @TheNamelessOne 's TOTPPv0.18.1 to create "Extended Music For TOTPP" Note that this download is ~50MB, since it contains all the music that has shipped with any version of Civ II. Even if you don't want any of the extensions, this is an easy way to get the tracks...

    [TOT] [TOTPP] Legacy Event Engine Development Thread

    The purpose of the Legacy Event Engine is to allow Test of Time events written in the original "macro language" to be used in scenarios that take advantage of the Lua Events System made available with the Test of Time Patch Project. When complete, this will allow older scenarios to be updated...

    Damage and Movement

    I recently needed to find the calculation for a damaged unit's movement allowance for an event I want to write for a TOTPP with Lua scenario. https://www.civfanatics.com/civ2/strategy/combatguide/#basics was the only thing I could find, and that is only good when the road multiplier is 3...

    Windows 10 - Test of Time - Graphics Mod Not Working

    Hello, I am trying to install the 'Graphics Mod Pack for the Original Game' from Catfish's Cave like I've done on Windows 7 and before it. Before, on several operating systems up to Windows 7, I had zero problems following the directions perfectly and had no hiccups; the game would run fine...
