    We were experiencing some CTDs in the previous versions, but the beta 2.5 version seems to be totally free of it. Play it and enjoy, it's an almost perfect mod.

    Mod settings

    - Changed: NoCustomAssets = 1 in Rise of Mankind.ini (prevents possible conflicts with custom assets, like older BUG mods)
    - Changed: NoCustomArt = 1 in Rise of Mankind.ini (prevents possible issues with custom graphics mods)
    - changed: AllowPublicMaps = 0 in Rise of Mankind.ini (only maps/mapscripts specifically made for Rise of Mankind will be shown in game setting lists)
    - Changed: Revolution.ini, BarbarianCivs NewWorldPolicy = 1 (was 2), this change makes barbarians settle to full civs on New Worlds (ie. on continents without other starting civs)
    - Changed: Revolution.ini, 10% chance to odds that civs accept rebel offers (all was 0%)
    - Changed: Revolution.ini, IndexModifier = 0.8, this should make revolutions happen little bit less to AI players than to human players (human can cope with revolutions better than AI)
    - Changed: Revolution.ini, increased slightly turn amounts between revolutions TurnsBetweenRevs = 12 (was 8), DeniedRevs = 9 (was 5), AcceptedTurns = 14 (was 10), AcquiredTurns = 14 (was 10), BuyoffTurns = 14 (was 10)
    - Changed: Religious victory requires now 75% religion percent (was 85%)


    - Changed: All pre-made maps updated to v2.5 civic changes

    Merry Xmas to all! :)

    I installed the 2.5 patch on 2.4 (and tried again on 2.41) and can't get my workers to build roads. I tried once as Germans and once as Japanese. Science advisor says I have the Wheel, but I can't build in my city limits even on grasslands.

    Any clue?

    Thanks for the wonderful mod!

    Roads cost 2 :gold: (+ inflation, which normally doesn't factor into it). Railroads cost more... around 10 :gold: + inflation...

    Check if you have enabled modular loading in civilization ini (in BtS folder).

    thanks Zappara,
    the file civilization.ini does not exist in my version. there must be something different in complete version. the closest file I found is civilizationIV.ini is this what you are talking about?

    thanks Zappara,

    I have just enabled modular loading, but the problem persists.

    also, I started the game anyway, then an error message came up "BugInit - cannot find xml file for mod int" unable to open civilopedia too for same reason.

    *where is the directory of the civilizationIV.ini you are talking about?
    in mine, it is under c:/users/(*my user account name*)/documents/mygame/beyond the sword/

    Hmm, that sounds like a problem which doesn't require you to edit CivilizationIV.ini. Did you rename Rise of Mankind -folder to anything else? If you did, that's one reason why BugInit fails. Since civilopedia fails to open as well, this is most likely python related problem. During testing I once had same error (ie. BugInit) and thought I had fixed it by editing modname.py file - that file now holds modfolder information and it's set to "Rise of Mankind" so renaming the folder causes BUG mod to fail during init.

    I might not be able to answer for some time after this message - christmas and all so spending time with family/relatives...
