Beautiful. Very well done. Huzzah's to the design team. I give credit to where it is due , especially since I have a predilection for quality mods for any of the Civ series (well, except for Civ V, but that's a whole different story in itself ). I find your mod extremely well done and of excellent quality, so it was no problem stating my appreciation for you and your team's efforts. 1) Ah, I thought that was the case, as my first encounter with that particular aspect of the mod caused me to revert to my Navy days of colorful expletives, well done on the surprise factor. Serves me right for not reading the 'pedia first. 2) RNG = Random Number Generator, or in this particular instance, the odds calculator (Civ IV term, my apologies, I forget that some acronyms do not translate between iterations). EM = Earth Map, Which you have sufficiently answered at this time, I shall just wait until you release one, especially given the new terrain graphics from the previous post. 3) Actually, I was specifically intrigued by the GEM (Giant Earth Map) by Yoda Power. His map is extremely well done, and he has some rather interesting rule sets for it that make a lot of sense. Play testing this particular map (which I highly recommend if you have sufficient time) was vastly enjoyable and provided a definite challenge. IMO, if you created a similar GEM tailored specifically towards your mod, it would greatly enhance the play value. Irregardless of whether you do so or not, and if you don't mind, I shall recommend you mod over in the Civ IV threads. There are actually quite a few of us who play II and III, as well as IV. The main complaint that I have been seeing over in the IV threads concerning III is that a lot of members are under the impression that the III mod forums are basically dead. A fact that I will happily attempt to rectify and see if I can't get more members to take an interest over here. Regards, Drak.
