    STEAM WORKSHOP: Agricultural Revolution Expanded

    A mod for all who enjoy more historical accuracy or historical resemblence for their Civilization experience. Basically this mod is a collection of fixes for annoyances and nitpicks, a revision of the entire tech tree and various gameplay changes. I've been changing and tweaking a lot of things without adding new content. The exceptions of course being the buildings and techs added by Dunklosteus for his Agricultural Revolution mod: Archive and Hospital.

    Built upon but not compatible with Agricultural Revolution by Dunklosteus.

    =============================================================================

    CHANGES
    I've recorded the majority of changes in a detailed list found in the post below. Otherwise most changes are recorded in the in-game descriptions, Civilopedia etc. I've also added text for changes that were missing in Dunklosteus' mod, as well as Unit info and specifics that are left out of the standard Civilopedia: for e.g. Sight Range, Zone of Control and various Combat Strength modifiers for Units.

    Unfortuneately it's quite time consuming to log everything changed so I won't be keeping a fully detailed log anymore (2020-01-04).

    Spoiler SUMMARY :

    • The tech tree has been extensively edited in order to force a more historical progression and to reduce the weird beelining that often occurs in Civ 6. Units should now become available in a more chronological fashion.
    • Resource maintenance has been changed for many units. All horse-units require Horses as upkeep (no niter cavalry), otherwise Gunpowder units require Niter, some Ships require Coal and other vehicles require Oil. Without the resource, these units will generally be reduced to 1 movement point, 1 sight range and the standard -20 CS penalty.
    • Sight range has been reduced to 1 for (almost) all units on flat ground, but units can see further upon hills. Settlers, Recon class and Flying units all start with 2 or more base sight range.
    • All combat units suffer attrition damage of -1 HP per turn outside your borders and all but recon class suffer an additional -1 in enemy territory.
    • All kills grant +4 Great General or +12 Great Admiral points, depending on the unit.
    • Field Cannon, Machine Gun, AT-Crew and Modern AT now act as Support units, offering their escorting units a ranged attack and/or other combat bonuses, like improving City ranged strikes. (In order to make this work, all melee-oriented units now start with 1 ranged strength and 0 range).
    • Naval movement has been scaled up to reflect the historical benefits of sea travel. Ocean tiles require more movement. Use your naval units to escort embarked units at their higher speed.
    • Most units after the Ancient era now require Buildings, like Barracks and Stables, in order to produce them. Production and resource costs have been reduced overall but maintenance costs are increased.
    • Builders can now build all roads, except railroad.
    • Recon units have been improved in several ways and Military Engineers are now much more useful.
    • Walls start with higher CS but cost more to build and maintain. City strike strength does not increase automatically after Medieval era. Cities with urban defenses (Steel tech) grant enemies full damage vs. outer defenses when adjacent, which means it should be possible to conquer cities in the later eras without Siege units.
    • Ancient era lasts 60-100 turns, and all other eras will require 40-100 turns. World Congress starts in the Renaissance era, instead of the Medieval era.
    • Food yields have been reduced overall, and it should require a bit more planning and effort to get cities to grow. City Centers and Harbors grant neighboring water tiles +food. Fishing Boats can now be built on all Coast/Lake tiles, but water yields now depends a lot on having a Harbor district and its buildings. Fishing Boats can be built on Ocean tiles after Cartography is researched.
    • Tundra has been renamed to Taiga (as it makes a lot more sense). Farms can now be built on flat Taiga terrain, after researching Iron Working.
    • Campus now receives adjacency bonus from Resources instead of Mountains/Rainforest. Several other changes have been made to yields of improvements, districts and buildings.
    • All Civilizations' Trade Routes now yield +1 Science/Culture for every Tech/Civic that the sending Civ is behind the destination Civ and trade routes give the destination Civ approximately 50% of the amount of Gold that the sending Civ receives.
    • Meeting City-states no longer grants free envoys and sending envoys no longer gives you bonuses to all Buildings in your entire Civilization, instead each level gives a flat bonus to the Capital. The unique Suzerain-bonuses have been left intact!
    • And much more...


    =============================================================================

    REQUIREMENTS

    DLC
    Requires both Expansions!
    Other DLC's are optional. If enabled, this mod will make changes to those Unique units, buildings, wonders etc.

    =============================================================================

    COMPATIBILITY

    Spoiler MODS :

    An add-on for integrating the units of Steel and Thunder: Unit Expansion (by Deliverator) is included in the zip-file, with the main mod.

    Should also be compatible with:
    Cosmetic/Graphics/UI mods
    Better Civilopedia - by infixo
    Real Strategy - by infixo
    Jam's Difficulty Mod - by Jamifa (Recommended)
    Settlers at Early Empire - by Knasp

    This mod is built upon (and therefore includes) Dunklosteus' Agricultural Revolution mod. Don't try and start a game with both enabled!

    Most likely not compatible with mods that changes Resource extraction or the Tech tree.

    The following mods are built into this mod (at least partly), and are therefore NOT compatible:
    TCS Free Walls for City-States - by thecrazyscotsman
    Strategic Geography - by MR.PAT
    Theater's Natural Wonders bonus - by Isukaci
    Slower Pace - by DreamStates
    Friends With Benefits - by Alfyn
    Open Ranges - by JNR

    Also not compatible with:
    Better Tech Tree - since it requires the base game tech tree.
    Extended Tech Tree
    Better Coastal Cities and Water Tiles

    Interesting mod, I'm going to try it out! :) (Will give feedback ofc, whenever I will have any)

    I'd have two small observations already, if I may:

    - what was the motivation behind the City-State bonuses change? It feels quite weak compared to the vanilla one (which strengthens Wide much more)
    - I personally increased the Great Person points so that they align better with the increased tech and civics costs (in theory, will see in practice). Maybe it's something that was left out? :)

    Personally, I didn't like how much City-state type bonuses boosted all your cities. I want tech and civic progression to depend less on having city-state envoys, since most envoys are just awarded automatically and you don't have to put much effort into getting them. Envoys boosting the capital makes sense to me. In any case, I got the idea and motivation from Elhoim, commenting the june patch:

    Secondly,

    I'm not sure what you mean, and it might be because I'm ignorant of the Great People game mechanics. Does the increased tech and civic costs affect the amount of GPP's needed to recruit Great people? In my current game, Civs have recruited all Great Writers before the Modern Era ones, and we were only in the Renaissance.

    Or do you mean that the number of points required (i.e. cost) should be increased?

    Sounds reasonable to me. I was just curious :)

    Yeah basically. Slower game pace -> more time to get Great Persons. It creates that weird experience that all Great Persons are recruited ages before they "should be", like what you described.

    I think that tech/civic and GP points aren't correlated but not sure. I increased GPP just in case like this :D
    Spoiler code :

    Code:
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_ANCIENT';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_CLASSICAL';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_MEDIEVAL';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_RENAISSANCE';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_INDUSTRIAL';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_MODERN';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_ATOMIC';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_INFORMATION';
    UPDATE Eras SET GreatPersonBaseCost = GreatPersonBaseCost*2 WHERE EraType = 'ERA_FUTURE';


    Just an idea / feedback, you don't have to add it if you feel like it's fine, I just thought I will mention :)

    Hehe, thanks! I deserve no such credit tho! :D

    I almost forgot about it, but since I'm messing with my own mod left and right (but never finishing...) I had the idea maybe it's something that would be useful! I'm glad I could help! :)

    Keep up the good work!

    I am playing as Greece and from very begining i can build City-State Military Center in my capital city. I think that is a bug.

    Thanks for reporting but it's actually working as intended.

    The problem is that if I try and make the building exclusive to city-states via a trait, then the code that gives them the building for free stops working.

    So the compromise has so far been to increase the production cost to an impossible amount.

    Thanks for reporting! Apparently it only works if you have RealStrategy enabled. I'll fix this in the next update!
