    it could, with python or sdk changes, i think. we need to (for now) utilize xml changes only.

    now i think there is some hope of making hacks using the event system....

    well usually you have to think of abilities in civ4 that already exist with wonders. then you check them out in the file structure and see how they can be manipulated (what variables they possess)

    im very interested in making hacks using the event system however. this is how i am planning on making the UN wonder work :)

    Ah right okay. Using the event system could be interesting. How about the Russian support building giving you random events about Russia offering to supply you with advanced equipment? Then you could receive some promotions for your troops, or pay and get given some tanks and helicopters?

    Edit: Or what about making it functionally the same as the Kremlin or the Pentagon?

    these are great ideas. i especially like the last two :)

    what would you think if it gave a rush bonus of like 20% and a +1 xp?

    I'm no balance expert but that sounds about right.

    Hey Garret, I've been interesting in the mod for a long time now but I've never gotten the chance to play it, since I don't have Warlords.

    Just want to say that I'm really on edge for when v3.0 finally comes out.

    Garret, the Russian support can give a city improvement in each cities ( like Stonehenge/Monument using the free building tag ) & then the improvment 'russian friendship' or whatever name can act as the heroic epic.

    it can be a statue but more thought must be given to it
    I'm pretty much brain dead as I just ended a long road trip on a mountainous highway.

    I am bothered by the leaderhead XML, due to the fact that neither of the Northern Rebel leaders have "Military" as a flavor. That would make them too much of a pushover to their opponents, and should be changed. If your idea is to have the rebels overwhelm their enemies culturally, then I agree, but there are better ways to do that. For example, you could bring back the Civ-specific traits and give the rebels a few free culture points, in the same way that the "Creative" tech normally does.

    this mod has been in hibernation for awhile. ive been really busy with my ModCast project for a year now, and i have done only minimal things with the mod.

    What i do need is some people who would like to help with the mod :)

    This discussion thread looks very interesting! I'd like to know more about it. Is there also a topic with features of this mod?

    edit: ah sorry. I see that other thread now.
