    Looking to get back into FFH. At the end of the day, it's just *better* than ciV or cVI, imo.

    In any case, what are people playing most these days? Is there any consensus to which combination of mods/modmods is the best single player, long game experience?

    It looks like WildMana has the most active development, but I worry about it accentuating what was already a huge human advantage over the AI when it came to spellcasting. I don't think I ever played Rise or Orbis, but I know they had their strong advocates at time.

    I played a lot of FallFurther, but it seems to have been abandoned as well. Abandoned doesn't mean bad, certainly. So, my question is really why you play the mod/modmod combo you do?

    I usually go with basic FFH plus MNAI or ExtraModMod -- it scratches the itch, and doesn't stray too far from what made FFH so compelling in the first place. Occasionally I'll dabble with WildMana or RiFE, but I feel they have shifted a bit too far from the base formula, and I've gotten lazy (or fatigued) enough to not want to have to learn new systems.

    I use base game plus MNAI as well. Just started a new game on the weekend.

    I pretty much only play Ashes of Erebus, which started as the continuation of Rise from Erebus, which itself was a continuation of Fall Further. I like the cumulative new content, plus many of the changes to the base game. Plus it's still under active development: bugfixes, balance and gameplay suggestions, etc.

    I used to play WildMana a lot before the conversion over to Master of Mana. I gave MoM a few tries but really didn't like a lot of the new mechanics having to do with the economy, so gave that up.

    Fall Further I occasionally still play if I want to play the Jotnar in their original implementation, but that's it. Since it's no longer under active development, game-breaking bugs aren't being fixed any more. I figure once Ashes of Erebus incorporates some version of the Jotnar, and assuming I find it satisfactory, I'll drop FF for good.

    I haven't played base FfH2 in a very long time.

    I haven't played MNAI in a long time, either, largely because I got used to all the new content and gameplay changes beginning with FF and especially in RifE and AoE.

    What about Magistermod?

    I like wildman best for game play; However wildmana is very buggy and most of my games seem to end with a dead save.

    Otherwise I paly More Naval AI, which should probably be considered the purest mod mod.

    I have played the others, but tend to find the bad AI offputting. I did use to like Fall Futher, but it seems to be dead now.

    "Still crazy after all these years..." of just MNAI. I keep wondering what in CiV or CVI would engage me as much as FFH, but while some people have their favorite CiV or CVI content, I don't see many people claiming anything comes close to this.
