Beyond the play - Community MOD


Sep 1, 2007
This is the official thread of the renewed version of the then Beyond the Game multiplayer community MOD (originally designed on the forum C4P).
The MOD has been redesigned from scratch to accommodate both multiplayer and single player play, but with a very strong focus on competitive multiplayer play.

This new version have been tested and played with at the very least on weekly basis since January 2017, with rountinely more than 10 players having all won Club championship titles and all logged in individually I'd expect 5,000H+ of online play, so we're getting, we hope, close to a very fine and competitive balance

Ultimately, the MOD can be perceived in 2 parts :
- One part where through the offer of many many options, the game can be tailored or adapted better to competitive play. The gameplay is not altered by any means, it can be play exactly like BTS 3.19 if you want to but with quality of life improvements.
- Another part where the MOD offer components that push the game further, offering somehow enhanced gameplay and new content.
It's important to note that every component is isolated in a dedicated game option (or multiplayer option) and they can therefore be run in any combination.

There are supporting documents in the archive but the best reference is the Civelopedia which is 100% updated and fully adapts to all options you would select, so what you consult in game always applies to what you're currently playing


This is a "full" version of Beyond the Game
It's a much heavier download but it's also very easy to install (albeit different way) just unzip this file wherever you want on your hard drive ! You will then find the exe named : BeyondtheGame_231.exe in the BeyondTheGame subfolder
Latest Version - BTG 2.35
Previous Version - BTG 2.34

BTG via Installer and/or to use with steam version
This is an installer version of the MOD which will create an extra folder in your base BTS game (it's different from traditional way of install other MODs). Make sure to reference where your clean version of BTS is installed if you moved it manually, but normally it should be detected properly, even if you use STEAM. And make your version compatible with everyone else on multiplayer lobby, again even if you use STEAM.

Logs - Of all the version since 2.00, when the project restarted the DLL from scratch

Spoiler 2.35 :

Beyond the Game 2.35
Included a 'sub MOD' in MOD folder, to play with 41 Civs. Default game allows 12 Civs (only, to speed up)

Fix Bug - That resources that don't get assigned by default on maps (potato, metals like Jade, Obsidian etc.) couldn't be moved by Polish worker (was neither flatland nor hills)
Fix Bug - That the Widget of Production calculation in cities, with Egypt Civic, was erroneous/inconsistent with real prod
Fix Bug - (from 2.06v) - That some "hard" yield on building did not show properly in descriptions/widget (+2H huns stable, +1F Khmer barry, some espionnage, etc).
Fix Bug - (Firaxis) that Apolistic Palace doesn't show anywhere it gives +2Hammers to Religious buildings
Fix Bug / Balance - That Mali Civic was given a free worker & settler after 4 too (it's only military units now)
Fix Bug / Balance - That Byzantium UB was giving tech in "Crazy Tech" Mode
Fix GUI - Improved the way UUM & WWM widget show on plot & resource. Also expanded the descriptions so that Strategic Resource shows that too
Fix - All Turn Timers have a changed first turn multiplier so that it is (around in some case) 10min for each, just like the slow one always had
Fixed option - Limited & Ban 'Process' production - 1/ Fixed the text in limited mod (the widget says 25% of total prod not 50%) 2/ in banned process production, you have a new process available, it let's you build "nothing" (meaning you can still store chops)
Fix Bug - Government Wise Variant - That if you had UUM + a Unique Civic (like huns Hereditary Rule) you couldn't select it
Fix Bug - Dynasty - Bug where it goes OOS if there is a spectator not reproduce, but excluded Barbarian, minor civ etc from code anyway
Improved - Dynasty - The Tech panel now shows which era each tech is in to better anticipate the dynasties change when the option is on

Improved Game Option - Administrative Societies - Now you can select any of the 5 Civic of the "legal" category, not just bureaucracy

Improved Menu / GUI - Change DAWN menu & Pedia Civilization to show Random Era start of all civs, and uch cleaner look in general, adapted to BTG
New Pedia Menu - Pedia "Boost" is a summary of all effects of the new BTG resources, a go-to page that goes hand in hand with the new resources widgets

Balanced Option OSM - You see the tech currently being researched by players you're at peace with
Balanced Option OSM - You can declare war to everyone, even if you haven't met them
Balanced Option OSM - You receive and give all techs automatically to your friends (players not at war with) after you got alphabet (each time one of you discover something)

New Game Option - Improvement Incubator - with Education, +1Hammer, +1Hammer with Scientific Method. After 30T, turns into a village (same 'path' as cottage + hamlet)
Rebalance Option - Improvement Campus - With Education, not RP. Is now 0 native coins, but +3 with Steam Power, & +1 with Assembly line. Upgrade is to village not town, in 30 Turns.
This rebalances (weakens) the campus, as they take longer to develop, but they're still better than cottage presuming you have steam power.
The upgrade time of both improvements is consistent with the cottage route for clarity

It's therefore possible to use the Change option panel in game at any time to flick between the three. The logic also understand the option which modifies the boost from 100% to 50%, can also change at anytime. The Random list works with reload and save games, and multiplayer

Fix Graphic bug - Australia Longbow didn't have clear picture. Also changed the picture & look of Scout, it's clearer for UUMadness mode when you fall on Australia (even though it's Vanilla Civ)
Fix Item bug - Unique Resource - if you were against the wall it could create python error and you would not receive your unique bonus, this is now fixed
Fix Pedia for Terrain - made new column for Marsh & Lava, cleaned some sorting of descriptions
Fix Pedia for Promotion - it shows the requirement of resource, and the usage (which unit type) for the "resource" promotions
Fix Pedia for Bonus - Show on the bonuses "allows" section if they can provide special resource promotions
Fix Info Screen bug - That if you died, you could see graphics of opponent team (confusion with Spectator)
Fix Info Screen bug - That if you died, the demographic menu would not show properly, now it shows the same as when you are Spectator, it shows only relevant columns
Fix Spectator / Concede mode display - You can now push arrow (or keyboard arrow) to scroll through cities, like a normal teammate
Fix Spectator - No more python error linked to Killer points when someone close/changes settings in the Host menu
Fix Trait Display bug - That when option "new trait" was OFF, the "cap" on extra yield (i.e. limit 4 hammers for Industrious) was written down even though there was nothing to apply it to)
Fix Animation bug - Improved animation of the Lumberjack so that you can see him chop wood properly
Fix Display - Gave another icon to Slave for clarity versus Scout
Fix Display - Gave another icon to Phoenician worker for clarity versus Fast Worker

Fix Display - Faith - Religious building show how much faith is being produced
Fix Display Text - Name of some Units (Amazon UUs,...) is changed so that it display properly (length of text)
Fix Game Speed - Forever Game speed Time scale (for dates) is better
Fix UU Madness - That Trade elephant can also be used in UU Madness (before was only Siege Elephant)
Fix Regen game - That when the MP option era specific was on, you didn't get a Civ Specific to the era
Fix Dark Age - Extra logic so that it cannot trigger if didn't start game in ancient era

Fix Removed Size "Gigantic" for maps - was only working for fixed size map like Earth Evo (with poor performance) and would require all map scripts to change

Fix several issues with "Ban" and "New" Trait by removing the logic in C++ which where hardcoding the possibilities of BUILDER & SCIENTIFIC traits and built upon the existing python functions (simplified and expanded) to :
Make it that option "new trait" can be check independently (the builder option and the scientific option) and that if you check both you have 50/50 chance of getting either trait
Fix One Trait & Strong trait Option - That starting unit got promotion of overwritten Traits and not new ones
Fix Strong trait Option bug that you could get extra "Sci" or extra "Build" trait (so 3 traits / 1 too many trait)
Fix Regen game - That if you picked "One Trait" option you only get 1 trait after regen too
Fix Regen game - If you picked option "Strong trait" it will apply again
Fix Regen game - That sometimes you would have 3rd trait if you had scientifc "replacement" trait

Also, made it that it NONE of the option of "ban" trait is checked AND either Scientific or Builder is checked; then it's a total shuffle of all possible traits on all leaders (because otherwise Builder & Scientific cannot appear)

Fix Menu "Civ Selected" and "Civ Summary" - So that if you choose only Vanilla or UUM, you don't see unique resource & Civics
Fix Menu Civilization widget when in Vanilla, showed the wrong starting techs (in widget etc.)
Fix Language issue in french , Where name of options was too long

Fix Game Interface - Improved "Civilization Widget" - so that it shows unique resource & unique Civics too. Including a logic not to appear in Vanilla, UUM
Improved Game interface - Player Option "Enhanced Graphic" also provide a GP tracking bar to the left of the screen, there is a dedicated widget to follow all cities, and if you click the bar you enter the city with next GP

Improved Game interface - Created "Harvest Widget" so that when you hover on the food calculation, you can see breakdown of Citizen + Specialist + building + effect of civics on food production

Game Analyzer Menu - New Tab "Prod Histo" - Gives historical breakdown of production by category, for player and team
Game Analyzer Menu - New Tab "Military Histo" - Gives Unit counts, drafting and upgrading information :
Game Analyzer Menu - Improved Tab "Army Built" Added information of drafted units and changed sum calculations
Game Analyzer Menu - Fixed a bug that you could not "jump to" other widgets
Game Analyzer Menu - Fixed a bug on the religion tab when no religion has been found

Player Option - Enhanced Graphics - Also give you more details in the Tech Chooser menu, when you have discovered ALPHABET

Blue Tech - You can research it
Black Tech - You will be able to research it in future
Red Tech - Every opponent team you know has it
Yellow Tech - Some of the opponent teams you know have it
Magenta Tech - One (but not all) opponent team you know has it

Game option - Earth-Like North American Civ ban - Also bans The Great Lighthouse

Game option (New) - Ban INDUSTRIOUS Trait - Works like the other option to ban traits, useful for Industrious and later start where workshop can easily have 4 hammers.

Game option (New) - Pragmatic Religion - The city which founds a religion is not determined with the formula of BTS : it goes to the last city built; unless one or more cities has an embassy; in that case it's the latest city within that subgroup.
Missionaries never fail to spread religion. Religion never spread spontaneously.

Game option (New) - Pagan Belief - New Wonder, Sphinx (with Meditation) - Gives a pagan Shrine in every city
Game option (New) - Pagan Belief - New Building, Pagan Shrine - +1 Agnostic Belief point for each
Game option (New) - Pagan Belief - Works similarly and in tandem with the component "Faith". You can now get 1 point of Belief for each Pagan shrine built. This accumulates, and fills your "Pagan Belief" bar. If the bar ever gets filled, an event triggers allowing you to found a (new) religion (the bar gets reset). You need to have no religion state for this. If you switch into a religion state at any point; all your current Belief points are transferred to Faith point of that religion. Pagan Shrine then also contributes 1 Faith point / turn towards your Faith meter. Faith Meter have been rebalanced to take count of this.
Faith Balance - Vassalage also gives +50% Faith
Create python widgets for both Faith & Agnostic Belief so that when you put cursor on top of the respective bars, you get all details and calculations

Game Option (New) - Scenario - Exponential Strength - Changes strength of unit to give more window of opportunities to attack. Particularly good for Ironman / Long games where windows of attack are short. Every unit strength is on a "base" 10 times higher (Warrior strength is 20), this allows 'mid' strength (Longbowman is 65, not 6/60 or 7/70). Strength is going up quicker (Cavalries are 200 not 140/150). There is a new panel to show all combinations of strength in Civelopedia

Game option - Vanilla - Starting tech is now "Mining" & "Agriculture" not Mining & The Wheel. This is to balance more start where someone only has a 'Pasture' food. Also 'hides' the chariot's UU in UUMadness at the very start

Terrain - New Terrain "Lava" - Impassible / Thematic, used in new maps only (Delta)

Expansion - Trait Pacifist - Option disappears to simplify. This means some trait rebalancing :
Trait Balance - Neither Aggressive nor Organized has the ON/OFF food production ability : BUILDER trait has it
Trait Balance - Builder only gets -8% required on Units, no discount on buildings
Trait Balance - Aggressive (with Expansion Trait) get -10% production required for building
Trait Balance - Organized (with Expansion Traits) get another bonus, When you build a stable, you get a barrack (for free). When you build an elephant camp, you get an elite barrack and vice-versa
Trait Balance - Organized - doesn't give 100% Siege Workshop production anymore

Wonder Balance (with Option Wonder) - Stonehedge only does 5 Culture points, not 8 Anymore. Same for Oracle.

Promotion Balance - Created concept of "competing" promotion, this is to help clarity with free promo from trait mostly.
Changed back that "Chainmail" opens "Equestry" for financial leaders instead of "Formation". But "Formation" and "Equestry" are competing so you cannot have both promotions on same unit.

Civic Balance - Emancipation - doesn't get all unhappy removed anymore, but max unhappy is 2 instead of 4 like in original BTS

Base game - Wonder Balance - Krak des Chevaliers is 5XP for mounted, not 10XP
Base game - Wonder Balance - Sun Tzu cost 300 not 420
Base game - Wonder Balance - Leonardo workshop cost 420 not 500
Base game - Building Balance - Brewery cost 50 (not 45), Science modifier is -20% not -35%, no 100% prod for Financial leader, does NOT produce with food (melee) units anymore

Base game - Building Balance - Elephant camp cost 50 (not 45), +4XP for Elephant (not 3), requires Horseback Riding too (mostly just for clean display in research menu), +10% prod on all mounted units. Force Production of all mounted units with Food.

Base game - (New) Building - Embassy. +1 Spy slot, +1 Culture, +1 Espionage. With Alphabet. Marco Polo also requires an embassy in city. Also has special effect if "Pragmatic Religion" is on.

Base game - Building - Arms factory - cost decrease by 20% from 300H to 240H

Unit Balance - Footman & Longsword both don't have Combat 1 Free promo anymore

Component - Alchemy - Adds a new tech (Alchemy) which requires Divine Right. Can be researched as first tech in Reny starts. Cost 1000 science (gunpowder is 1200). Is a "or" prerequisite for Chemistry. Allows Unit 'Paladin' and Unit 'Bombard'
Component - Alchemy - Paladin - is a 11 Strength Knight-type unit. is Produced 25% with Gold, get's free Promotion 'Shiny Armor' with Silver, Requires Guilds too
Component - Alchemy - Bombard - is a 6 Strength Siege unit with +75% city attack, hit a bit stronger than Trebuchet (higher damage limits), requires Construction too, and Copper
Promotion - (New) Shiny Armor - +15 City Attack
Option - Can be turned off, and logic understand how to amend the "upgrade" path (if the option is on, Knights can be upgraded in Paladin, and Trebuchet/Catapults cans be upgrade in bombard). Tech chooser Menu also understand it (tech is 'white' on the menu). This also works for later starts (you cannot build a Bombard in Indus if you de-select option) .
Turning off the option also has a logic not to count that technology in the score calculation, it doesn't "bias" the sum of points to be calculated on
Civ Balance - Holy Rome Civic (New) - Free Trade Fair - With Printing press too, gives free Alchemy discover
Fix Balance Clean - England first Unique Civic is "Anglo-Saxon Paganism" not "Alchemy", same effects
Fix Balance Clean - China's trebuchet different description and buttons
Civ Balance - Australia - (New) Penal Colonies (Slavery) - Capture the last unit when attacking/conquering a tile and defeating a unit or a group of unit. The new Unit start with 60% of the maximum health
Civ Balance - Persia - Ancient Mythology also allows to build missionaries
Civ Balance - Germany - Prussian Navy now requires both Steam Power and Steal, like a normal Ironclad
Civ Balance - Portugal - Colonialism is replacing Mercantilism now, not Free market. It does NOT provide the fishing boat bonus anymore, just the +1 hammer on water tiles
Simplification of UU
Civ Balance - Portugal - Colonialism AND agrarian Societies also allow Caravel to build Sea Trading Post
Civ Balance - Mongolia - (New) Pax Mongolica - Let Keshik's buid Yurt
Both Carrack and Keshik are back to BTS setup (no special improvement), it's done on the civic
Civ Balance General clean up so all UU are like in BTS :
Civ Balance - Russia - "BTG" Cossack are removed so it's consistent in UUMadness. it's still "Red Cossack" for normal BTG games
Civ Balance - Byzantium - Doesn't have Cataphracts as UU Anymore. It's Koursorses which is a 10 strength knight with 25% City attack and can bombard. in UU Madness both Koursorses & Cataphracts are accessible with Silk, but Cataphract is configured like BTS for simplicity (and very good in UUMadness).

Civ Balance - Maya - (New) Unique Civic - City-State (Monarchy) gives free tech Calendar, doesn't have calendar at start anymore.
Civ Balance - Maya - City-State also gives promotion 'Blessed' to Spear your UU which gives +50% vs Melee & Archers on Holkans (instead of +100% defense vs Elephant as 'native' bonus of the unit)

Spectator - You can now see the buttons of (Unit/Building/Wonder) production and the slaving button etc. This is especially useful to see which production can be made with what in UU Madness

Logic Map via CvMapGeneratorUtil - Improved so that the forced Top V Bottom always work (was sometime erroneously flipping player of same team)
Logic Map via CvMapGeneratorUtil - Improved so that the forced Top V Bottom always works with Spectator in team2/middle team too

Logic Map via C++ created "BTGFreeUnit" & "BTGFreeUnitCount" which are called to check if declared in tailor-made maps, to add (option) to add extra unit at start (very clean way of doing).

Above logic applied for Lumberjack, Musketeer & Machine gun on maps : Grid/Hub/Wheel // Polar Circle/Mediterranea/Black Forest

Beyond the Game

This is the part that provides you with a very long list of options for you to enable, or not, for your games.

General Options which turn on or off features in the original game

General Options which use existing features and re-engineer them in a different way

Complete variante on a fundamental item of the game

Or more out-of-the-box scenarios funny to play or helping the balance in some cases

There are also options for you to activate in multiplayer only.
There are also added feature, without touching to gameplay balance, that are essential :
The possibility to change the turn time WHILE playing a game, better adapted timers,
The possibiliy to referee the game (someone can be an observer and watch others play),
A "random era select" (if you launch a game in say Renaissance era start, you can only get a select scope of cilizations, typically the ones with Renaissance UU's)

More games speeds (quicker), more (closer) difficultly levels on lower levels (some levels have too much a gap to justify being used between human players of close skills, the new levels just fill the gapes),...

Beyond the play

The ultimate goals of Beyond the play is as follow :
- Be able to launch a "long", "epic" game from scratch and have a balance between all civilizations, and all traits combos (in the original Beyond the Sword , the difference in use of some trait is too big in too many contexts)
- Be able to launch a teamer in any "start" era given (a lot of MP game don't start in ancient era) and have an interesting pool of trait combos, and civilization, that is balanced (this is achieved by activating the "Random era specific" option).

This "expansion" part is implement via the last 13 game options you can activate independently :

To this you have to add the "component" which are building blocks to develop the amount of features in the game :

There is also added content within the framework of normal BTS , but never is the intention to fundamentally disturb gameplay,
As you'll see below and in the game, added content will aim to give POSSIBILITIES to the player, but is never a predominant feature, the fundamental idea is to play DIFFERENTLY, with more CREATIVE play; but stay true to the Beyond the Sword experience we have loved for nearly 15 years.
Usage as shown that new players get very quickly used to the MOD as fundamental game play isn't altered.

Dedicated Civelopedia tabs

New Basic Units

New Basic Buildings

New UU for some Civs, revamped balance for other (very few) UU's

New UB for some Civs

New Unique Civics for some Civilizations

New Promotions
Accessible either via Trait (Red promotion), By event (Yellow), via specific Unique Civics (Purple) or Unique Buildings (Green)

New Civilizations - Which have the new leaders and their own UU/UB with creative way/new ways of playing

New Trait & Leaders
Agricultural (first column) and its leaders (new Civilizations' leaders)
Conqueror (second column), extra leaders on existing Civilizations

Other unique combos (third column), leaders or Poland and Sid Meier (normally not playable, is the spectator leader, as Build/Sci)
If you select one of the options that "bans" a trait, you will get either i/ a random trait within the 11 traits of BTS, ii/ A "forced" replacement trait, which are 'Builder' and then 'Scientific' (usage of those is obviously much rarer)

Other content & options

UU Madness Scenario

UU Madness mode let's you build all of the games' Unique Units if you have the (additional) required resource
The unit simply transforms when it comes out of the city into the relevant UU

City production tabs update to tells you what your unit could become if you have the right resource

Resource menu updates to show you what you could produce with it

Left-hand side - if normal game is played, the scope is normal UU's
Right-hand side - if expansion mode (more UU's) is activated, then it covers that too

General Multiplayer scenarios

Scenarios activated by using 2 first extra digits in the city elim Multiplayer Option (you will have to use 3 digits, the 3rd one is to determine the actual City-Elimination limit).
If you want to play with 1 extra explore unit at the begining unit of the game, and no city elim : put 100
If you want to play with 1 extra worker unit at the begining unit of the game, and 3 city elim : put 113

Component - Faith

A Sidebar on top left gets filled with point when you have an active state religion (1pnt/turn by religious building you have, 3 for the religion's shrine), once the bar gets filled, you get a bonus event. (Then the bar resets for increased size, like the GP bar)

Event give a bonus you can choose on all your religion's Cathedrals

Component - Royalty

A King unit appears near your Civilization starting plot when you finish a revolution cycle and you install an hereditary ruler. He is weak and fearful, take care of him or you will enter a dark age.

Component - Dark age

Those terrible times can happen if you don't take care of your King or let the Plague spread into the world,

Your cities health will be greatly reduced, your cities won't be growing anymore, and you won't be able to make scientific researches.

Thanks for the comment !
I absolutely wanted this to be perfectly clean before posting, it took a while ;) it's not perfect but very presentable I think !

Concerning the .exe:
Not it's the .exe that automatically redirect your IP connections to Zulan's server ( [we can't thank him enough for this], nothing more or less.
I'm not aware of a way of improving memory via exe, but if there is I'd be very interest to look at it!

Any suggestion welcome
Hello everyone, registered to say thank you to the team of mod creators. Sorry for my English if I write something wrong.

This version of the mod looks much more attractive, and in my opinion, the team of creators is moving in the right direction. I especially wanted to mention qualities of leaders.They look balanced, and some have become much better, such as protective.

In my opinion, there are also Nations that have greatly elevated. The American colonists of Indeans have 5 points of movement and this can make imbalance in the game, if you take an imperialist.If you play in a team, then others simply do not need to build settlers, even the size of the map does not matter.

I also have the question about the imperialist, what does the first +1 bonus mean after the capture of the city? The Golden age for 1 turn?

Units also pleasantly surprise, with such conquistadors it is clear why the Spain captured most of the new world) Arab camels headache waiting for all enemies, because they have a free commando. Some pity about rus cossacks, but they are very strong in the original.

Added new Nations, they looks good but i dont test them yet. I think it is very good for some Nations to add unique palaces, with interesting bonuses, such as resources or the long Golden age of the Persians. In General, the mod makes the good impression, I hope the work will continue!
Thanks for the message Nikk!
Sounds like your team has been very diligent in their studying of the MOD and playing very well / good strategies already !

I especially wanted to mention qualities of leaders.They look balanced, and some have become much better, such as protective.
Thanks a lot, indeed it was very key for us that you can play fairly with all traits in all circumstances taking into account we sometimes play somehow specific scenarios in multiplayer
I also have the question about the imperialist, what does the first +1 bonus mean after the capture of the city? The Golden age for 1 turn?
Yes it's 1 turn golden age when you capture a city.

- The American colonists of Indeans have 5 points of movement and this can make imbalance in the game
- Such conquistadors it is clear why the Spain captured most of the new world
- Arab camels headache waiting for all enemies, because they have a free commando.
- Some pity about rus cossacks, but they are very strong in the original.
Sure I/We don't pretend it's perfect balance (yet) of course, all debatable.
I feel it's fairly strong, so let's see how it plays out in the next 3 months or so and we can come to further conclusion & debate on some of them.
I don't know how often I'll release updates going forward (less and less often) but we'll have played much more games together by then. I don't expect to need to buf or nerf anything more than 1 notch at a time if at all.

This version of the mod looks much more attractive, and in my opinion, the team of creators is moving in the right direction.
In General, the mod makes the good impression, I hope the work will continue!
Thanks a ton :blush:
:grouphug: join mod guys! looks cool
may be we can make something like CCC soon.
will be cool if old :borg: old very old duds will join again to us ;p

thx Nico!!! :thumbsup:
Hey guys,
Got a lot done on version 2.08; only few things to work out with the in-game menu and should be good. I expect a full release in the next 10-15 days.
I'm posting a log of the changes, so that you can comment and/or request other things before it's too late ! It will definitely be the last chance before next year...
I have nothing left on my to-do list except review the spectator/refereeing mode & maps

Also I would like to extend a huge thanks to platyping and his many python MOD's, I reviewed all of them in prevision of this and it did give me a lot of ideas !
Some modules I've re-used almost as is and/or minor clean up or adaptation to BTP (Unique Civics, Faith) some I've redone from scratch (Unique Resource is on the new civ via C++, Dark age is clompetely different but gave me the thematic idea), Broterhood help me finally finalize UUMadness MOD + a new civ logic + finish a trait, etc.

Spoiler 2.08 LOG :

Beyond the Play 2.08

Fix game bug - that slaves (because no combat domain) didn't get their production bonus (trait spiritual) since 2.06
Fix game bug - Made it that bonus of production on slaves/lumberjack is only available for traits if option "expansion traits" is activated
Fix game bug - with Option Killer - You lose the "capture city" count if you lose the city (in case someone takes back the city you captured)
Fix Retire menu - that you can ALT-Q by mistake to retire, you need to do ALT-CTRL-Q now
Fix text bug - of options
Fix graphic bug - that "European workers", were appearing as Indian fast workers on some frames when option animation frozen was on
Added Graphics for workers from RFCE (there isn't many to took the chance to store/expand), different graphics for the workers of Russia+Ottomans+Arab+Hungary/Poland

Fix problems with Keyboard Shortcuts for popup / screen menus :
Added Menu for players to activate, this cannot activated when the multiplayer option "Tournament Game", is on
(Added Multiplayer option : Differentiated "Tournament Game" (above) and "Refereed Games" (=Observer mode))
CTRL-F1 - Developer menu to check XML tags, check games' content
CTRL-F2 - Developer - Calendar check (to compare game speeds)
CTRL-F3 - Developer - Art checker
CTRL-F4 - Developer - A quick ingame text display to test strings
CTRL-F5 - Host option popup
CTRL-F6 - Concede and reveal map popup (Work in progress)
CTRL-F7 - Regenerate map quick menu (Work in progress, where is it gone?)
CTRL-F8 - Shared vision Panel (Not functional for now)
CTRL-F9 - Advanced options (Hidden for now)
Host option menu also available with CTRL + SHIFT + H at all times (even in tournament games)

VictoryOption - new - Treasure Hunt.
At launch of game you get a "national treasure" unit, no strength, 1 move. Cannot enter cities/is expelled if you settled on unit.
If someone kills this unit all your cities and units are destroyed

Scenario Option - UU Madness
With UU Madness option there is no distinction between Civs anymore : They can all build all the UU's, but they need to have access to some resource to do so. When you chose your production (for example archer) it's starts normally and when you finish constructing it, if you have the resource of a UU of the unit type (example Stone) you get the UU (in this case a Bowman). If there are multiple UU's you can get, you get a chance for both (if you've got both Sheep and Fur you get 50/50 chance of a Gaellic warrior and a praetorian when you build a swordman. This works and adapt to both BTG and BTP (new UU's or not). The list of UU and their resource is shown in a dedicated panel in civelopedia, also on the Unit Pedia themselves when the option is on.

Additional religions (from Just A Religion Mod), 10 extra religions
Only activates when "Fair religion" is on, and when 8 players or more are part of game. This is mostly for large multiplayer games, so that everyone has religion.
Religious Screen (F7) has been adapted to only show the religion in play, not all religions greyed out.
Added Civelopedia of BTP Religion to reflect. It shows the religion and it's related Units (missionaries), Wonder (Shrine) and buildings (Temple, Monasteries, Cathedrals).

Added "Component". Concepts are activated via (new) game option. Labelled "Component"
Component described in Civelopedia in new page "BTP - Concept"
Concept "Faith". When a player as an active state religion, each building of that religion (monasteries, temples, cathedrals) contribute 1 points towards faith (3 point for Shrine). Counter appears on top left of screen (doesn't contribute when in anarchy, resets at 0 if changes religion).
When you get to the threshold (120 points in quick), you can choose 1 of 9 bonus, that applies to Cathedral (1 coin, 1 culture, etc.). The next threshold then is further away (240pnt for level 2) like the threshold for GP increase. This works for all 17 religions.

Added Component - "Royalty"
A "King" Unit is created when you take the civic Monarchy. The King unit appears at the end of your revolution transition period (normally 5 turns), on the tile you started the game on, or a tile adjacent to it if there is a city there.
You can have multiple Kings if you do multiple revolutions where you select Monarchy. The unit itself is similar to a treasure - it's weak, cannot attack, has 1 movement and cannot enter cities. When it dies, it triggers a golden age for the civilization that killed it (limited to once a game by player) and triggers a dark age for the civilization that lost his king (can happen several times, and happens even if dark age concept his not checked). You'll get notification of starts and ends of Dark ages of all players like you do for Golden age (sound, etc.). Your player screen will show how many turns left where there usually is the mention of which era you currently are in.

Added Component - "Dark Age"
When you're in a dark age, you cannot produce research anymore (you do 0 beaker...better save gold!), you have 5 'bad' health by city, and all your production are 'food produced' (you cannot growth anymore). The dark age last as long as a golden age, i.e 6 turns in quick speed and 8 turns in normal speed. There are 3 ways to enter a dark age, I/ The aforementioned death of one of your kings, this is a normal dark age. The other 2 ways are 'Global Dark Age' where all players enter the dark age at the same time. There can only be one global dark age by game. II/ By constructing the wonder "Krak des chevaliers" available with guilds (you only need to use a knight to build it, you don't need to produce it in the city). This wonder also give you immunity vs Global dark age so everybody BUT YOU will have a dark age. But note that this wonder expires with the technology Education so you will have to make a tech path choice for this. III/ When you discover Feudalism, there will be a popup offering you the chance to spread the plague and everybody will enter a dark Age. Importantly you will not be able to do so if you already are pas the Medieval era (have a tech within Education, Nationalism, Gunpowder, Printing Press, Astronomy). You'll probably want to trigger this when someone is about to get Krak des Chevaliers. Krak des Chevaliers is only available for Classical and earlier starts.

Added leader (12) for all the "Conqueror" traits combo. All leaders are on Civilization that already exist in base game (opposite of agricultural trait).
Civelopedia panel of leaders : Sorted in 3 columns, Agricultural, Conqueror, and other leaders.

Trait "Trader" is replaced by trait "Conqueror"
Trait Conqueror reset - Can rushbuy production, +1gold/city/turn, 20% discount upgrade sea unit, +2 Health, 100% prod speed market
Trait Conqueror new - When you win your first attacking combat with your (own) UU, a golden age is triggered
Trait Conqueror new - When you produce a unit, if 1 of your teammates has a UU for that unitType, your unit has 50% of transform in that UU too (you share the UU of your teammates). [Brotherhood concept of platyping]

GameOption - New - Settings - no AGGRESSIVE leaders
GameOption - New - Expansion - Conqueror Leaders
GameOption - New - Expansion - Agricultural Leaders
--> For all 3 options, when you launch the game, if you fall on a leader with one of those traits it will change the TRAIT to a random one. So if you play with Cleopatra (Agri/Conq) and don't check the option, you will be something random (like Cre/org for example) but not Agri, not Conq and not Aggressive as well if you did CHECK the box (opposite logic for checking box Aggressive)

GameOption - New - Smart and Limited tech discount - You can only benefit of tech discount (bonus modifier to help your tech) if you have TWO CITIES less (or more) than the player/team you're copying. Only if it's a real catch-up mechanism. If you also click option no tech discount you won't get any.
GameOption - Base Game - New Unit, Battery Ram - Siege with 0 Force, gets captured. Cost 150H normal speed. Requires engineering, and a siege workshop in the city. it's a limited unit each player & team can only have 1. It bombard defense 200% (only 2 turns vs Castle, 1 turn any other case). It requires a road to move (cannot enter terrain without road/railroad)
GameOption - Scenario - The campus improvement is now with Repleacable part, update in 35T (not 40) only 1 coin (not 3); but gets +2 coins with Steam Power

New Unit Feature - Unit can be "no promotions from trait" (Trait promo (agressive, financial) don't apply to the Unit (only applied to Rome UU)

New Civilization Feature - Unique Resource - When you select the civilization expansion (works for Civelopedia and DAWN too), on top of the new UU and UB; some civilizations have a unique extra resource.
This resource is added to your city fat cross when you SETTLE the capital (you can see the resource appear), if there is at least 1 of the 21 tiles that is valid to receive (not always true for Oil for example). So this will give you a boost (a cow with America for example) or a strategic resource (marble with Austro-Hungary for example). Specific resource for specific resource are shown in your civilization pedia.
Current List : Arabia Oil, America Cow, Austria Marble, Babylon Stone, Khmer Elephant, Mali Gold, France Wine, Viking Fish

New Civilization Feature - Unique Civics - When you select the civilization expansion (works for Civelopedia and DAWN too), on top of the new UU and UB; some civilization have a unique civic.
It replaces a traditional civic and gives a more powerful civic to the civilization (this replaces the faculty of having access earlier to a civic of previous version of BTP).
Current list : Greece (Athenian Democracy - Labor, +100% growth cottages), Arabia (Religious Education - Labor, unlimited Scientist, Priest), Germany (Confederation - Legal, +3 Happy from Barracks)

New Civilization : Poland. 2 leaders, Cre-cha & Org Pro.
UU - Lumberjack (removed from Polynesia), slightly cheaper. Can build colonies too
UU - Polish worker can do all jobs without having the techs, except a Colony. Also, can move resources around, the worker can "store" (say the sheep) go to another tile and drop it

Good job!

A little nitpicking though:
1) There is/was no such thing as Austria-Hungarian Civilization. It is like saying British-Irish Civilization.
A-H was a dual-monarchy at some point but it was still a fusion of two separate civs.

2) Why is Attila Agricultural?

After your comment I read on this a bit and you seem to know much better than I do,it's no so straightforward to me at the least.
Anyways, in terms of graphical asset, it's not my forte, so I tried to use the are I like and I took the Austria-Hungary module here :

It iself re-uses (and I did myself as I made modification / shuffled things around) Austria ( and Hungary ( assets

2) Why is Attila Agricultural?

Fair, but whilst them is important I chose to put gameplay & clarity/order first,
So the leaders' traits are :
- Agricultural for the new (5) Civilizations - first column
- Conqueror for the leader of existing Civilization that are added - second column
- Other combo, third column - 2 leaders of the 6th extra Civ (Polan) and the (not normally playable) Ind/Phi combo

Looks very interesting indeed :). I've been wanting for a "third expansion" mod that is not yet another kitchen-sink mod with every imaginable content haphazardly included (I think you guys get which mods I'm referring too:crazyeye:)

Now we only need to rebase it on top of Advanced Civ :crazyeye: (and rework the combat system ofc, but that will come later...)
Top Bottom
