    Before rise and fall we were using Civ VI improvements patch to change the game pace instead of 8 AoP, and it worked perfectly. It doesn't look like that mod will see a R&F update, so I was hoping to use this one since it is very praised by the community and works great for my single player games.

    I don't know if these logs will have any good info for you, but have a shot.

    If you need me to run another quick game until we desync to get recent logs or a save or something, i can definitely do that

    Possibly, but I'd rather isolate the bug to this mod first. You are running quite a few different ones:
    Steel and Thunder: Unit Expansion
    Tomatekh's Historical Religions
    Religion Expanded
    AI+
    The problem could be with them. I'd recommend running a few test games with just one of them at a time to see where the problem is. If that works, then run all pairs one at a time (6 different combinations) and see if there's a compatibility clash.

    We did do that already a few days ago. We played with only individuals, and found we could make it to turn 30 or 35 without desyncing with the other ones, but with 8AoP, we desyncd at turn 20 like clockwork.
    If it helps, we also did a workaround (found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/civ/comments/7x8l5g/civ_6_rise_fall_dlc_momentillustrations_database/) that involves replacing some game files. I don't know if that would have affected anything or not.

    I will try running a few more test games soon and post results here.

    ok we ran some games. (AI+ and 8AoP are the only 2 mods we consider essential to our playing)

    game 1: AI+ and 8AoP: desync on turn 11.
    game 2: 8AoP only: made it to turn 31 before i was killed by horde of barbs hah. no desync. This surprised me
    game 3: AI+ only: desync on turn 5. Seems perhaps I was remembering the desync problem incorrectly and messed up my previous tests. AI+ appears to be causing the problem on it's own.

    I apologize for wasting your time.

    Thanks for doing the tests, always good to isolate the problem. Not sure why AI+ would cause desync though, you're probably best asking that mod creator.

    If you are playing multiplayer, make sure the game is in Fullscreen mode, not Borderedless Window or Windowed. If any of you are not in fullscreen youll get horrible desync.

    8 ages of pace really doesn't feel right with R+F
    multiple technologies are still being researched in the middle of wars as if the war is spanning thousands of years or something. the base game had the pace set right but something in R+F really sped it up again. Even the Ancient Age goes too fast through research compared to what is accomplished on the world itself.

    Is this compatible with rise and fall? I use this mod on Marathon, but it doesn't appear to have any effect on gameplay. I can't even tell if the Mod is running...

    Hey Olleus, I am sure you have been busy, but I am wondering what your plans are for this mod. I'd like to help you update it for Gathering Storm since so many people are clamoring for it (myself included).

    If you do not have Gathering Storm, I am perfectly happy to test out some changes so you can get it updated. Although I guess with Gathering Storm it's going to be 9 Ages of Pace now! :p

    No, no one has properly updated 8AoW, and like 8AoP I'm sure Olleus isn't interested in updating either. However - and it's been a long time since I've looked at it - but most, if not all, of the components could still be compatible with GS. Or, they might just need minor tweaking. :dunno: It could be a good project for a beginning modder to take on.

    8aoW and 8aoP have'nt been and won't be upgraded for GS unfortunatelly.
    BUT, a moder (Napstablook) did upgrade 8aoP for GS: I'm in an Epic game with this mod, and it feels very good. Maybe the latest techs are a bit too long (42+k for the future ones :/ )
    But I really enjoyed the pace. I really was struggling not to be in dark ages sometimes, and I have time to enjoy each era's units and features.

    Yup, that's the link above, sorry

    No, it's not my mod. You'd have to ask @Magil since they're the ones that did the update. What's wrong with subscribing to the Steam version?

    Fortunately, there are legal ways to play Civ VI without Steam:
    • Mac App Store
    • iOS App Store
    • Nintendo Switch
    Unfortunately, there is no legal way to play Civ VI on Windows without Steam. Yes, mods do work on the Mac App Store and iOS versions.

    Note: I play on the Mac App Store and the Nintendo Switch versions, but not the Windows version.
