    :nuke: ABOUT

    I’ve put alot of time into making this modpack and hopefully you'll enjoy the fruits of my labor. History in the Making (HiTM) is an ongoing project I have been working on since August 2006, shortly after the Warlords release. Being an avid fan of the Civilization series since 1991, I created this Modpack so that I could enjoy Civilization IV even more. While the game itself is fantastic, there were many aspects of it that I thought could be improved upon. HiTM is my version of how Civilization IV should be.​

    History in the Making is a complete conversion style modpack. It adds a little bit of everything, while trying not to change too many elements of the game just "for the sake of change". Every new addition and change has been carefully planned to achieve both historical accuracy as well as fun gameplay. Hundreds of new flavor units, unit classes, buildings, wonders, religions, corporations, civilizations, promotions, resources and interface colors are included. This mod is also comprised of many modcomps by some of the most prominent mod makers in the CivFanatics community!​

    Consider History in the Making as Beyond the Sword, "with a twist".

    So sit back, relax, grab the beverage of your choice and enjoy HISTORY IN THE MAKING!

    :nuke: HISTORY IN THE MAKING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    Spoiler Click to show the History in the Making installation instructions :

    So easy a Caveman can do it.

    Either extract the mod to your Desktop (default install method) or specify a specific directory for the installer to extract to. If you choose to extract directly to your MODS folder, do just that. No need to create a “History in the Making” directory. The installer will do that for you. See below for where to extract History in the Making to, if you choose not to extract to your Desktop.

    If you extract to you Desktop, simply cut/paste the HISTORY IN THE MAKING folder to ONLY this location:

    C:/Program Files/Civilization IV/Beyond the Sword/Mods/
    (or where ever you installed your copy of Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword)
    WARNING!

    Installing History in the Making to your My Documents/Beyond the Sword/Mods folder WILL NO LONGER WORK!
    The reason is because of the new interface colors, which require the mod to be placed in your main Civilization IV/Beyond the Sword/Mods directory.

    I also recommend you clear you Civilization IV’s cache before installing HiTM 3.19, and also before installing any subsequent patches. If you do not know how to clear your Civ4 cache, do a search on the forums.

    CAUTION!

    If you have a version of History in the Making that is older than v4.00, you must delete the older mod before installing v4.00 into your MODS folder. Do not attempt to overwrite an older version of HiTM with v4.00! You have been warned!

    INTERIM & QUICK FIXES:

    - Please see THIS POST for a Quick Fix to the General Motors Corporation. This quick fix is NOT required, but it IS recommended!

    - Please see THIS POST for a Quick Fix to the CIV4DiplomacyInfos.xml file in which I accidently left out Queen Dido's Diplomacy text tags!

    - Please see THIS POST for a bunch of Quick Fixes to the address a few minor bugs, including: Missing Espionage & Corporation buttons on main interface, certain Spaceship parts not being able to be built, fixing the scale on some modern armor units!


    ===========================================================================================
    History in the Making v4.00 is to be considered the "FINAL" official release. There will be no more subsequent patches to update this mod for a few reasons:

    1) I'm happy with the content of the mod, and the balance of gameplay
    2) I find less and less time to keep up with the modding community
    3) Real life is getting in the way! :lol:

    I'll only release future interim patches ONLY if I can fix a game breaking CTD or similiar apocalyptic event that prevents an enjoyable start-to-finish gaming experience. I will from time to time, release optional Modules for HiTM that will include, but not limited to: new maps, civlizations, extra UU & UB, etc. So if you like HiTM, don't worry... more is still on the way!

    If you would like to continue updating this mod and have equal or better modding skills than I do, shoot me a PM for permission to "pass the torch". I may allow it, so that our community can continue enjoying an up-to-date History in the Making, even if the "official" releases have stopped!

    OPTIONAL GRAPHIC ADD-ON PACKS:

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

    Q: What's the difference between History and the Making, and other large mods like Rise of Mankind, RevolutionDCM, CivFusion, etc?
    A: While many of the larger mods all share nearly identical "ModComps", the biggest difference between HiTM and the others is all in the XML. All the XML in HiTM is unique, because I modified everything from scratch, and not "copy/pasted" a cool Building/Unit/Civic/Trait/ from one mod into mine. It's the unique choices I made in the XML that makes History in the Making stand out from the rest!

    Q: Help! I installed/re-installed HiTM vX.xx and it's not working anymore! Also I installed the newest patch and now my game is no longer working!
    A: Maybe this post will help you out...

    Q: Can I use files I placed in my CustomAssets folder with HiTM?
    A: If it's XML/Python, I recommend not to. They may confilict with the files in History in the Making. You can use custom Art files, if you wish. To do this, simply open the HISTORY IN THE MAKING.ini file in the HiTM root directory and find/change the following: NoCustomAssets = 1. Leave NoCustomArt = 0 if you want to use custom art (terrain, leaderheads re-textures, etc)

    Q: Where is Beyond the Sword's "log" files?
    A: The log files are located in your My Documents/My Games/Beyond the Sword/Logs directory.

    Q: How do I change the interface colors?
    A: Read the supplied Readme, specifically Chapter 7.

    Q: How do I correctly install History in the Making?
    A: Download the mod and read the supplied Readme.

    Q: There is a new feature I noticed in HiTM that isn't in the vanilla BtS. What does it do?
    A: Read the supplied Readmes.

    Q: How do I get the vanilla BtS map scripts to show up? All I see are the ones you included in the mod.
    A: This requires making a change in the History in the Making.ini file. See this post for details.

    Q: I keep getting Crash to Desktop (CTD) and....
    A: Before reporting a CTD, please see Post #4. It might be able to help you out.

    Q: There are some aspects of this mod that I want to enable/disable, don't like or just want adjust to my liking a little better. What do I do?
    A: Several mod components are customizable via the History in the Making Config.ini file in the root directory. Check it out. Several more mods are also customizable via the GlobalDefines.xml and GlobalDefinesAlt.xml files located in the Assets/XML folder. You can also enable/disable almost all mods included into HiTM with these three files. Tweak till your hearts content.

    Q: How do I correctly install and play other modular Civilizations?
    A: The only modification I see you needing to do in order to let other modular Civilizations work (Civ Gold, etc) is to replace their Schema files with ones copied out of the HiTM directories You also need to point the modular Civ's XML files to those new Schema files instead of the original ones supplied with the modular Civ. See this post and this post for further details.

    Q: Is History in the Making multi-player compatible?
    A: I don't play Civilization in multi-player, so in turn I didn't design this mod to be played in multi-player. Use multi-player "at your own risk". This mod was strictly designed to be a single-player game only.

    Q: I've downloaded History in the Making (a number more than once) times already, and it's still not working?
    A: You only need to download the mod once. Multipule times aren't going to change anything. Make sure you installed the mod correctly the first time, read the readme and installation directions carefully. Nothing magical is going to change between the first download and the hundredth time you download it. ;)

    Q: The Pedia won't open and many pop-up windows don't work. What's wrong?
    A: Sounds like a Python issue. Make sure you installed the mod correctly. If you installed the mod correctly and didn't tamper with any Python files, you should not have any problems, as I test everything out before I release it. But since I can't have every possible hardware configuration known to man, please post the contents of your PythonErr log so I can see what's going on in your game.

    Q: I can't figure out how to use your custom maps/scenarios?
    A: Simple: Simply place the map/scenario into your HISTORY IN THE MAKING/PublicMaps directory. To play, simple double click on the scenario.

    Q: I try to play one of the pre-made Scenarios/Maps that game with BtS, and the mod crashes. Why?
    A: Since I modify the DLL, these Scenarios/Maps will not work. The only scenarios that will work are ones specifically designed for HiTM.

    Q: How drastic do you change the original game?
    A: While some minor tweaks were necessary for the sake of game balance, I tried my absolute best to keep all the "stock" units, buildings, etc, as true to the original game as possible. What I focused on was adding new content in the form of Units, Techs, Wonders, Buildings, Civs, etc.

    Q: Will you add new mods to History in the Making after you release it?
    A: If they're worth putting in (and after extensive testing), I'll add new SDK/Python mods as they're released.

    Q: I have have a (other than English version of BtS) and would like it in my (other than English language). Can you make that?
    A: Since English is the only language I speak, I probably will not do an other-than-English language version. However, if you would like to take on the challenge of translating everything to your native language, feel free to do so. The reason I only use <English> tags was, again, I only speak English... and because having <French>, <German>, <Spanish>, etc tags in the XML that I don't utilize makes the files larger.

    Q: I use the English version of Civ 4, but I live in (a non-English country) and this mod isn't working! Why?
    A: Many people from what I call "foreign" countries have reported CTD issues with this mod. I do not officially offer support for users in foreign countries trying to play this mod. I'm sorry, but you're just not the target audience for this mod. This mod was designed for English speaking users only, located in the USA, UK and Australia. Other-than-English versions of Civ 4, BtS, or your Operating System may prevent this mod from working properly. I cannot help you with these issues.

    Q: I get no text in my (non-English) version. Why?
    A: Again, I only use <English> tags. If you have BtS set up for say, French, my mod has no <French> tags so all text will come up blank. The only way to fix this is to install Civilization & BtS in ENGLISH. By doing that your game will read from the English tags, and not from non-English tags (Spanish, French, German, etc).

    BUG REPORTING & OTHER TYPO ERRORS:


    Please supply the following information when reporting a bug:

    Also, it wouldn't hurt to post up your save game files if you are getting persistant CTDs. Preferably as close to the turn the CTD occurs as possible. You can zip them up and post them as an attachment. It really helps alot. :)

    If you're getting other Python/XML errors, please post up the contents of the approperiate log file. It's alot easier for me to read your error logs than it is sometimes for me to decypher what you're trying to explain. :)

    Typically, the log files are located in: My Documents/My Games/Beyond the Sword/Logs


    If you don't know how to enable logging, find your CivilizationIV.ini file. Below are some important options in your INI file that you may want to have set like the examples below:

    Code:
    ; Set to 1 for no python exception popups
    HidePythonExceptions = 0
    
    ; Modular XML Loading
    ModularLoading = 1
    
    ; Enable the logging system
    LoggingEnabled = 1
    




    IMPORTANT!

    :nuke: CARRYING ON THE LEGACY:

    I have no problems with other modders carrying on my work. I think HiTM is an excellent mod, and I would love to see somebody "carry the torch" so to speak. The only request I have is to make is this:

    Any "fixes", "updates", or "additions" must be a seperate download from HiTM itself. You cannot combine any 3rd party content with HiTM v4.00 into a single download. Basically, you must download HiTM first, and then download 3rd party content afterwards. So if you want to make 3rd party content, you should design it so that it installs OVER HiTM.

    For example:

    - Download and install History in the Making v4.00
    - Download and install any official HiTM updates
    - Download and install any 3rd party content (fixes, updates, additions)


    When in doubt, just PM me about anything. :)

    See you guys in Civilization V! :goodjob:

    wow grave,

    im impressed.....now visa has abig competator :)

    for real man, you did one heck of a job, take my top off :)

    say - have you tested the game for a length of turns?
    maybe you can aid me - i encountered a problem with the 3d civics,
    the merchant gave astronomical values to food hammers and commerance - have you checked it?

    if this mod would work on mp game.....it would be even greater.

    so again - im really impressed. great job.

    OK The one marked in red (partisan) is just a kfm art error is all, does not move, its acts like a stiff unit now.
    The one marked in yellow (protestor) when used causes a crash.
    i think its the spelling:ARTFILE should be: ProtesterRenissance, you have: ProtesterReniassance
    Unitfile reads: PROTESTER_RENAISSANCE, art reads: PROTESTER_RENIASSANCE

    Hope this helps, also, the time in between each turn, even on QUICK is a long time???:(

    I like it but I'm getting CTD right after the barberians form up and empire.

    It occurs a few turns after this save.

    Well shoot... I thought I fixed all the "Reniassance" typos. I could never spell that word correctly, thanks for pointing that out! :lol:

    I'll look into that KFM file, I thought I put the right one, I guess I didn't.

    Were you able to fix them on your end to make them work? In other words, is it a quick fix?


    I guess it depends on what kind of setup you have.

    For example, I have an E6700 CPU, 2gb of Ballistix RAM and a 8800GTS card. I really didn't slowdown that bad... even up until 1800AD it was fine. There was about a 10 second delay between turns, but nothing longer.

    That's the problem with these huge ass mods... the longer you play, the more they bog your system down, and if it's not top of the line, unfortunately you feel the burn late in the game. :(

    Thanks... I'll have a look at it.

    The game I played I had the barbarians spawn a few Civs and I didn't experience any crashes... but every game is different.

    Thanks for posting the save file. :goodjob:

    Thanks, Keldath. :)

    The problem you were having with the 3d Civics... was it in my mod, or on something you were working on? Because I know what you're talking about... I ran into that problem when I was merging it with my mod a few months back, but I was able to fix it.

    Shoot me a PM... we'll sort it out. :)

    Well, I guess this will be good news for you...


    ... the first time I loaded this save, abou 2 turns later, I got a CTD when the Chinese were formed from a barbarian city.

    So I loaded up the game again and used the AutoPlay feature (SHIFT+CTRL+X) and let the game auto play for 2 rounds. Nothing happened. So I played a round then AutoPlayed again for 3, then played a round, then AutoPlayed for 5, played a round then AutoPlayed for 10 rounds. No CTD. :)

    So if you're getting a CTD when a Civ forms from Barbarians, try giving the AutoPlay feature a shot. It seemed to work for me.


    Yup... just as I suspected. I mispelled "Renaissance" in a few key areas. I was able to fix them, so no more CTD. I also fixed the animations for the Industrial Era Partisan, turns out he didn't use the Rifleman.kfm... he uses the Infantry.kfm. Sorry! :blush:


    Anyway, see post #2 for a patch.

    Yeah i hear ya, i thought it used the infantry:p , i have mainly worked on two MODs by myself, so i know how frustrating it can be at time. Thats why i have asked for help with mine all the time. But in the long haul, its worth it. ;)
    Glad to have helped if you need anything else just give me a jingle.:p

    btw, i have a 3Gz, 2G ram, 250 HD,and in the beginning it does usually take around 10 seconds, (no problem), but then after turn 125, it starts taking around 20 seconds, one actually took 30 seconds, 20 & 30 does add up fast!!


    Do you mind if i use some of your ideas and units etc to use in a MOD??

    EDIT: Had a hardcrash and found out it was the attached problem, the civ came from some place then a barb took over , i think, and caused the crash!:confused: If you want saved game i can send.

    Also the Religious Lae Icon shows up pink here, but when i looked at it in the civopedia it was correct, wierd??? see attached also.:blush:

    This mod is awesome, but I there are some things I dislike

    -One of the Reason why I dislike this game a bit is that almost every unit out there got a Flavor Unit Icon, I cannot instantly tell which is which, so please give them some Icons or default Icons.

    -The Lag is worse in this game, this game need keal's Speed Mod in so that I can get into renaissance then a 30 second hangtime per turn.

    -I've noticed that some of the religions have no temples like the Norse, hellianism, mexica, and Egyptians gods. I also seen that there are hardly leaders have there faviorate religions like Confucianism, and the new religions, including Mexica.

    those are the three problems that I don't like about this game, This game is awesome if you can at least solve my two problems.

    I also want to request

    -Add in a custom soundtrack for this mod, for each and every age out there then the default music which is now annoying me.

    -allow us to disable some religions so that I don't have 1 civilization per religion, (13 Civs = 13 Religions). It will totally reduce the lag a bit once I be able to have 4 civs and 4 religions.

    -I seen some immagrants coming to town and so forth, however I don't see civilian ships coming to my cities by sea or air. So please make a ship or a airplane that carries people from town to town.

    Firaxis Wonder movies don’t play. The Wonder movies I included play just fine, however. This is only a graphical glitch and does not affect gameplay.

    Fix for Firaxis Wonder movies don’t play {{ CIV4ArtDefines_Movie }} Place in the folder Assets/XML/Art overwrite yours. Firaxis Wonder movies will then play.
