    Since i bothered for months, it's nice to be first to congratulate for the new Mod.

    Eager to see it in game.
    Expect an astonishing monarch time game in few weeks (surely not days, it will be a long game)

    Use this thread for any feedback regarding the new MODs (especially BUFFY).

    Are the AI vampires and BUFFY is to help us slay them?

    It was an exploit discovered by folks in one of the SGOTMs. I would rather not describe it in too much detail. Maybe once the old versions have been sunset next month.

    Thanks to all the people involved in making this happen! Looking forward to playing around with it. Hopefully it'll encourage people to use the HOF mod for their regular games, increasing HOF participation :)

    Got 3.19 installed and the BUFFY mod downloaded, and it works! On Vista, no less!

    I have never used the BUG mod before, so I can't compare, but from the first few minutes of a test game, I can tell I'm going to like it a lot.

    At first the 3.19 patch wouldn't load. Then I realized that my .ini file still had the 3.17 HOF mod enabled on startup. Once I disabled that, everything worked great. Gave me a scare, but all is well now.

    Thanks!

    If BUFFY is as much better than the 3.17 Mod as that is over the regular interface, it'll be huge.

    I updated the AssetChecker (v2.2) to handle BUFFY, 3.19 and the new HOF Mods for Vanilla and Warlords.

    So if you are getting the Assets warnings message on your Victory Screen, Setting tab, this program will help diagnose where your assets are different. Just follow the directions on the linked page.

    I get a 404 message when I try to download this. The 2.1 checker downloads ok so I don't think it's my system.

    Question:
    I've seen a "raising seas" option which can cause GW to raise the sea lavel.

    How this new Mod takes care of the GW nightmare?

    •added Golbal Warming Mod
    I've seen this, but not many info about it (there's even a typo).

    edit: Is this the thread where to find infos?

    Hi, this is really great. I've downloaded the new Mods and Buffy fires up fine - loads of new stuff! But I've just got one question - I no longer have the HoF Mod 1, 2 and 3 tabs available under Options. I'm talking about the screens where you can set the alerts and also set the MapFinder paths etc etc. MapFinder doesn't work at the moment and I'm not sure what I need to do to activate it and set my alerts?

    Edited to add: The link to Bug Wiki in the Mods section on the Hall of Fame doesn't work. It asks for a user name and password.

    The Global Warming Mod is the from Minor Annoyance: http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=11408. I am pretty sure the Rising Seas option is just a optional part of the mod.

    Use CTL-Shift-O to get the BUG Options. (That should be flashing on the screen as a reminder.) Everything that used to be on the HOF Tabs is found there plus much, much more. ;) There is also a help file folks can access from there.

    I thought I had the correct link for the wiki. I will have to find the right one. You can follow the BUG Information link from the original post for more information. Edit: it is fixed now. Be sure to refresh your screen.

    Thanks for the reply Denniz. I have tried ctrl-shift-O, but nothing happens :( I can't see any reminder on the screen anywhere.

    Typing ctrl-o brings up the standard game option screens.

    Typing alt-m now seems to be the reminder command - was alt-n previously I think. Have I done something wrong? Buffy itself is working fine.
