v9 is here with some optional CS changes! Download New Version: CivFanatic Link: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/alternative-difficulty-for-vp.28828/ MegaShare Link: https://mega.nz/folder/AksEwJ7C#2Zc7ev3-oy724wd_icrD8g Mod to change the way difficulty is done in VP. A/B/C changed to be a 10 turn trigger giving mostly gold. Rest of the AI bonuses are done as cost reductions to science/policy etc costs and larger cost reductions to units/buildings. Full changes are explained in the readme. Compared to current Deity, AIs should have a much smoother power increase based on their strengths and a much better lategame than current VP. Overall difficulty on all levels should be increased but let me know how you guys get on! Extract the zipped folder and then place the extracted folder into your MODS folder.
