    24 April 2014

    26 April 2014

    fixed epic bug with Mongoose FeatureGrowthMod, where certain features could grow into tiles with certain improvements present that don't allow them there, due to the absurd case-by-case-basis integer-value hardcoding I used back on 22 May 2009 as part of MM 3.2.4, which was obviously hopelessly messed up at this point; it now PROPERLY just checks if the improvement allows the feature with its XML settings, sigh (thanks EnormousD!)

    added Prime Timber to Creative Constructions, and decreased its multipliers from 0.24 to 0.2 as a result
    added Titanium to Mining Co., and increased its multiplier from 0.27 to 0.3 (giving it 25% extra due to the large number of resource types required to max it out, and the loss of 3 potential competing corporations instead of 0 or 1 everywhere else)

    25 Jan 2016
    tracked down crash in D's game to AI_updateRouteToCity() in CvCityAI.cpp for some VERY strange reason, and disabled it for now (hopefully the K-Mod code's bugfixes in this section will apply to this, heh)
    updated MM 4.2 pre-merge codebase from 7 Aug 2014 to include 2 of the 3 normal blocks of work done shortly afterward (skipped MPRandomFix for now): TileDamageMod and BarbarianMod's isMonster() function (CvUnit.cpp, CvUnitAI.cpp, CvUnit.h, CvGameCoreUtils.cpp, CvPlot.cpp); and Hubble Space Telescope updates for all 3 types of world wrap (CvGame.cpp, CvGame.h)
    fixed display bug in the Survival tech's Terrain Enable mouseover due to hardcoded Executive first and last numbers of 3 and 7 not having been updated to 2 and 6, heh

    28 Jan 2016
    extended Mongoose FeatureDamageMod to read in the bIgnoreOceanStorms field in CIV4UnitInfos.xml (added a couple days ago), and updated the mouseover text and new centralized function to use it instead of checking for being of UnitCombatType Submarine
    removed terrain impassables and added terrain natives for the 5 sea monster units, and updated Mongoose AnimalMod to group full sets of Coast, Sea, and Ocean in the Native list mouseover text
    removed Prime Timber requirement on Galley and Viking Longboat (thanks EnormousD!)
    updated Mongoose BarbarianMod to use native settings for all monster units, allow Can Only Defend monsters to spawn (oops...), and improve code efficiency
    fixed Mining Corp not reading in all 10 bonuses now that Titanium has been added, simply by updating NUM_CORPORATION_PREREQ_BONUSES in GlobalDefines_MongooseMod.xml, and NOT with a code update! (sigh, lol)

    29 Jan 2016
    added Mongoose DemolishOwnCitiesMod fix from merge-codebase shortly after 7 Aug 2014 to correct hardcoded great people list order, and the non-Spy names missing "GREAT_"

    rewrote CvGameTextMgr::buildMoveString() and CvPlot::movementCost() for efficiency

    30 Jan 2016
    added Ignores Terrain Movement Costs to Sand Worm, and decreased Ice Golem speed from 2 to 1
    decreased Maglev flat speed from 9 to 8, and added +1 Railroad speed to Advanced Construction, and +1 Maglev speed to MegaEngineering and Shielding (holy carp - yuss!!!)
    fixed bug in CvGameTextMgr::buildMoveString() where route speed increases shown in mouseover text were often +1 too high due to comparing then rounding up, rather than rounding the old and new values seperately then comparing (oops, hehe)
    fixed bug in CvTechChooser.py with only the last speed boost widget button showing up in the tech tree when multiple techs boost the same route type
    added link for the route name in the route speed increase mouseover
    moved second requirement option for final unrestricted Barb water spawns from Combustion to Mechanized Warfare, matching new Destroyer and Submarine location (oops, heh)

    updated CvTechChooser.py to display associated widgets for each
    renamed XML global GLOBAL_WARMING_FOREST to GLOBAL_WARMING_FEATURE_DEFENSE_WEIGHT

    31 Jan 2016
    tracked down new SECOND crash in D's game to CvUnit::doTurn() calling setMoves(0) on the last line, then doing "m_iMoves = iNewValue", which makes absolutely NO SENSE whatsoever (sigh)
    got missing 4.1b XML and Python folders via full mod folder sent back from D, and found and fixed old divide-by-zero crash in CvPlayerAI.cpp
    applied 4 other major bugfixes from 4.2 development (bOnlyWaterBonus also in CvPlayerAI.cpp, DemolishOwnCitiesMod with 75% returns, FeatureGrowthMod "Epic Bug!", and GamespeedScalingFix backwards high-level-unit requirement)
    made new updated 4.1b private source code archive; version 4.1b public update (1.5 years overdue - sorry!)

    1 Feb 2016
    added missing stream->Read and stream->Write sections for the long-existing Mongoose UnitSpeechMod and GlobalWarmingMod tech tags in CvInfos.cpp (wtf? grr...), the former of which was used to place the tech tree widget but which were otherwise unused
    updated Mongoose PowerPlantMod code for efficiency, UnitSpeechMod for full implementation with no hardcoding, and GlobalWarmingMod for iGlobalWarmingBuildingModifier tag, renaming existing one to iGlobalWarmingPopulationModifier

    2 Feb 2016

    updated MongooseMod_Techs_Effects.xml and CvGameTextMgr.cpp to use a different text color for positive Global Warming effects (moving both over to the DLL matching vanilla and most existing custom text handling), and settled on Winter Lodge icon for them after trying several options
    updated CvTechChooser.py and CIV4ArtDefines_Interface.xml to use different color versions of the Afterworld right-arrow icon for Railroad and Maglev speed increase widgets
    updated CvDLLWidgetData.cpp to get Spawn Disable links working with right-click from the tech tree, and set route speed effects to use the standard hightlight color and Spawn Disable to use the standard yellow unit color
    fixed Pedia Corporation and Concepts categories crashing, and Exit buttons not working on Pedia and all advisor windows (must leave vanilla widget order intact and only add on to the END of the widget list in CvEnums.h and CyEnumsInterface.cpp, damnit! this definitely happened a long time ago with WIDGET_HELP_MOUNTAIN_CROSSING too!)
    fixed Pedia Tech category crashing when accessed on the main menu due to the new SpawnDisableTech loop (must check bPlayerContext before calling something like GET_PLAYER(BARBARIAN_PLAYER), damnit!)

    3 Feb 2016
    increased Mermaid player limit from 8 to 16
    split CvPediaHistory.py into CvPediaConcept.py and CvPediaBTSConcept.py to fix bug with Pedia concept links crashing (specifically on Nuke-related entries)

    4 Feb 2016
    added "HQ" names for the corporation headquarters wonders to eliminate confusion and fix Pedia bug with "Incorporates" links going to the building pages and not the corporation ones
    cleaned up CvScreensInterface.py for missing Animals category and current list order, matching CvScreenEnums.py
    added getSortedNonGraphicalOnlyList() in CvPediaMain.py to hide Land/Water Worked entries in Improvement category
    renamed Pedia Specials category back to "Special Buildings", and set it to use the Great People icon from the Specialists category just below it in the list

    5 Feb 2016
    made full update pass on Pedia category icons
    discovered the concept link fix from 3 Feb 2016 also fixes crash on "Can Build Railroad"-type tags and enables a link; set matching left-click text link to Concept Movement for route speed modifiers as a result
    set left-click text link to Terrain Peak entry on "Enables Mountain Crossing" tag, and updated CvDLLWidgetData.cpp and CvTechChooser.py to support the right-click link from the tech tree for it, and to fix bug with resource obsoletion right-click links only opening the resource category without selecting an entry
    updated Pedia version from 3.2a to 3.3, and updated titleplate as a result, and also to add EnormousD to the Special Thanks list
    changed icons on Free Tech to vanilla Future Tech orb guy, Martial Arts promotion from battle droid to Warlords black asian building with red background with sword, and Extractor from literally-correct version to deep sea lab

    21 Feb 2016
    rewrote small section of Mongoose UnitStringMod to fix bug with Elite Impi's All Defense line being fully written out due to its combination with Desert Strength (woohoo - at last!)
    fixed very old bug with Mongoose ReligionMod where a player who had already founded their limit of 2 religions and then researched other founding techs before anyone else, while correctly not founding more religions, would also block anyone else from ever founding them afterward (thanks EnormousD!)

    22 Feb 2016
    updated Mongoose UnitStringMod to show the specific type on unit Invisibility text lines

    24 Feb 2016
    updated Mongoose ReligionMod to clean up and optimize CvTeam::setHasTech() and CvGame::doHolyCity(), to properly block Barbs from founding Religions and Corporations in the normally-impossible event that they are the first to any founding techs, and to fix several bugs where Teams and Players were not always being checked for having at least one city
    updated Mongoose BarbarianMod to further optimize CvGame::createBarbarianUnits(), and Mongoose AnimalMod to slightly optimize CvGame::createAnimals()

    25 Feb 2016
    cleaned up and optimized the very messy and badly-written vanilla CvGame::doHeadquarters() function, even though it's not currently used except for the initial checks which should run slightly faster now
    made major update pass on MongooseMod_Units_Effects.xml to add links to Aquatic, No Bad Results from Goody Huts, Wild Animals, Ignores Ocean Storms, Can Cross Mountains, (Until Tech), and SDI, and to fix numerous bugs with broken or missing links in Terrain / Feature "Strength / Attack / Defense" text tags and their multi-entry variants
    made major update pass on MongooseMod_Techs_Effects.xml to add Concept links to Centers World Map, Reveals World Map, and +1 Moves for Water Units; to add highlight color to the links in Enables Map / Tech / Gold Trading, Enables Open Borders, Farms Spread Irrigation, and Can Build Farms without Irrigation; to remove dead link in Enables Trade on Rivers; and to add highlight color on and support the new code for Enables Trade on Coast and Sea, and on individual Ocean types
    fixed the OTHER set of TXT_KEY_UNIT_COAST_STRENGTH etc calls (in CvGameTextMgr::setUnitHelp() I'm pretty sure) that were stupidly overloaded with the normal getTerrainInfo().getTextKeyWide() argument (the first set was fixed sometime in the last couple weeks, but AGAIN was something that didn't make it into the notes, sigh)
    fixed bugs with Mongoose UnitStringMod where the Cannot Enter and Cannot Enter (until Tech) lists had broken Coast, Sea, and Ocean Pedia links; and added checks for the +1, +2, and +3 Terrains in each consolidation also being Impassable, and not just having a TerrainPassableTech
    fixed bug with Mongoose AnimalMod where the "Native to" text list had broken Coast, Sea, and Ocean Pedia links
    rewrote CvGameTextMgr::buildTerrainTradeString() to fix numerous bugs with Mongoose TechStringMod where "Enables Trade on" was stupidly using different code for the mouseover and full Pedia versions; where neither was using consolidated Coast and Sea groups; and where the full Pedia version was stupidly using the consolidated Coast and Sea names for Tropical Coast and Tropical Sea, broke their links as a result, was listing the Subtropical and Temperate Ocean entries twice, was using unnecessary hardcoded lookups for all 3 entries in the Warm Ocean list, and was not using any separators EXCEPT in the Warm Ocean list (ugh...)
    extended Mongoose TechStringMod to use the new TXT_KEY in CvGameTextMgr::buildRiverTradeString() to remove dead link in Enables Trade on Rivers

    26 Feb 2016
    updated Mongoose RailroadMod to halve or quarter AI tech valuation of Route speed increases (updated from 1000 to 400 in MM 4.1b, probably on 6 Dec 2013 though it isn't in the notes, oops heh) if the And and/or Or resource requirements to build that Route type exist but are not available
    fixed stupidly broken Cave Painting Pedia text link, which was using "TXT_KEY_NEW_BUILDING_" matching the Warlords Monument Pedia text update (probably inherited from Stone Age Mod as a Monument copy, sigh heh :))

    27 Feb 2016
    removed several redundant TERRAIN_TROPICAL_COAST etc hardcoded lookup groups in if conditions in CvGameTextMgr.cpp

    29 Feb 2016
    extended Mongoose UnitStringMod to add a text line to water units with Always Hostile to indicate they collect blocked commerce as gold when blockading (prompted and inspired by reviewing Blockade mechanics due to phone questions - thanks EnormousD!)

    29 Feb, 2 March 2016
    extended Mongoose TechStringMod to add a second line to the "Can Chop/Remove" widget mouseover (to keep Bronze Working from overflowing, sigh) for allowing Routes to be built in Features, and to add a standalone widget for it when no Removal build is present (currently used in Steam Power)

    3, 8 March 2016
    added iWarmingPerCity xml tag, set Industrialism civic to value 4, and extended Mongoose GlobalWarmingMod to support it, replacing existing hardcoding

    8 March 2016
    added Maintenance and Corporations concept links, and Palace building links, to 7 Civic text keys; Specialists concept links to 1 Civic and 3 Building "Free Specialist" text keys; Borders concept link to Environmentalism text key; Barbarians and Borders concept links to Great Wall text key; Movement and Borders concept links to Via Appia text key; and Great General unit links to 2 Civic "Emergence" text keys
    changed link color on "Active Vision" from Building to Highlight, and on "Spawns a Crusader" from Highlight to Unit, as they should be (sigh)

    Version 4.2 Patch Notes - Part 7

    Spoiler :
    1 May 2016
    added Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix to implement a special case of Friendly Territory (normally self, Team members, Vassals, and Master with Open Borders) that allows ships to enter Canals, ie Coastal Forts, of all players you have Open Borders with (thanks EnormousD!)
    updated Mongoose PillageOwnImprovementsMod to restore the vanilla ability for pillaging one's own Improvements in the special case of ones that don't ever harvest any Resources, and cleaned up previous code which was a mess (thanks EnormousD!)

    4 May 2016
    changed new CvPlot::isCity() optional argument in Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix to a full copy of the function to fix bug with unit selection causing game to crash (thanks EnormousD!)

    5 May 2016
    copied last 2 items, which were written in 4.1b for D's current game, to 4.2 codebase

    5-6 May 2016
    reverted to vanilla code in CvUnit::canMoveInto() where I had STUPIDLY removed a vanilla condition due to a BLIND MISREAD that made me think it was redundant and broken when IN FACT it was a DIFFERENT check that prevents transports in 2 adjacent water tiles from transferring cargo (tagged as "MongooseMod 4.2" but never recorded in notes apparently), and left a comment in the code to prevent it ever happening AGAIN (sigh)

    6 May 2016
    checked all other instances of "MongooseMod 4.2" code tags for any other problems, but didn't find any
    updated Mongoose AnimalMod and BarbarianMod in CvUnit::canMoveInto() to fix bug with Sea Monsters ignoring new Terrain Native settings when moving, removing Sandworm and Ice Golem hardcoded names there from earlier
    added new CvUnitInfo::isNativeTo() function to collapse, replace, and unify code in canMoveInto(), createAnimals(), and createBarbarianUnits(), fixing Monster spawn and area checks not having full set of Native requirements, and movement checking Barb Mountaineering instead of Peak Native for Monsters on Peaks, and Aquatic for everything
    increased deep-water chance in Barb ship Improved Fishing tier from 5 to 10% to relieve some pressure on Mermaid and Humpback Whale spawns
    removed iWorldSize truncation on PlanetaryMongoose to increase area-size requirement for Monster spawns on that size from 20 to 22, and added numerical sequence comment to the 2 places in the code that generate the scaling Lake size value of 4-18
    added speed optimization to Monster spawn area-size check
    changed "Guns not Butter" quest completion text from "hail of bullets" to "hail of lead" (thanks EnormousD!)

    7 May 2016
    updated Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix to attempt to fix Open Borders Canal tile being an invalid red mouseover and GoTo to Lake behind it working initially but then teleporting the ship out: CvUnitAI::AI_plotValid() fix allowed unit to stay, made very minor code efficiency improvement in VERY old 12monkeys TeleportingIntoLakeFix in CvUnit::jumpToNearestValidPlot(), and set AI to hopefully use new Canal access for MISSION_MOVE_TO_UNIT in CvSelectionGroup::continueMission() (thanks EnormousD!)
    updated Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix AGAIN after third emailed DLL from previous line from early afternoon still didn't work completely: CvSelectionGroup::isAmphibPlot() took 3 hours not only to find but also to get around to testing since it seemed unlikely to matter, but turned out to be the fix for Open Borders Canal tile being an invalid red mouseover; CvPlot::isValidDomainForLocation() was found and fixed first, which made GoTo Lake behind Open Borders Canal use the correct 2 movement instead of draining all movement points for some reason; and also updated CvPlayerAI::AI_getPlotCanalValue() early on, which may only be used for an AI's own territory, but if not it'll keep AI Canal valuation correct in all cases (thanks EnormousD!)
    copied changes over to 4.2 codebase, again
    found HeroicFort's new unit graphics thread, and downloaded his High Elf Paladin, Pirate Musketmen, and Native American Infantry 1 and 2 and Machine Gun rar packs

    7-8 (Horse Whispering only - bad neck/chiro period), 9 (all the rest) May 2016
    updated help text on Warships quest from "arrive at the Renaissance" to "reach the Medieval Era" to match actual obsoletion techs
    changed obsoletion techs on Elite Swords and Warships quests from "Engineering, Theology, Philosophy, Feudalism, Machinery" to "Mountaineering, Engineering, Theology, Philosophy, Feudalism, Martial Arts, Machinery" to match Medieval Era condition in vanilla and updated TXT_KEYs
    changed obsoletion techs on Horse Whispering, Classic Literature, and Master Blacksmith quests from "Nationalism, Gunpowder, Printing Press, Astronomy" to "Education, Drama, Nationalism, Scientific Method, Compass, Gunpowder" to match Renaissance Era condition in vanilla TXT_KEYs
    changed obsoletion techs on Harbormaster quest from "Corporations, Steel, Steam Power" to "Democracy, Corporations, Railroads, Electricity, Medicine, Refining" to match Industrial Era condition in vanilla TXT_KEY
    changed obsoletion techs on Sports League quest from "Radio, Refrigeration, Plastics, Ecology" to "Advanced Refining, Sanitation, Semiconductors, Mass Media, Jet Flight, Rocketry" to match Modern Era condition in vanilla TXT_KEY

    updated help text on Guns Not Butter quest from "(Rifling or Railroad" to "(Chemistry or Rifling" to match actual obsoletion techs
    changed obsoletion techs on Noble Knights quest from "Drama, Nationalism, Scientific Method, Compass, Gunpowder" to "Gunpowder, Education, Military Tradition", and updated help text from "advanced firearms (Military Tradition, Rifling, or Railroad" to "firearms or pass beyond the Age of Chivalry (Gunpowder, Education, or Military Tradition" to match
    updated help text on Overwhelm quest from "." to ", or if you discover AquaEngineering or Shielding", and changed its Done trigger from "Satellites, Shielding" to "AquaEngineering, Shielding" to match its Event Trigger (oops...)

    9 May 2016
    updated Mongoose BuildingFunctionalityMod to fix bug with Tenacious no-pillage-gold effect where pillaging Improvements in neutral tiles was causing OOS errors in multiplayer games, and probably also unpredictable results in general (oops, heh :p); and copied change over to 4.2 codebase and remade updated private 4.1b code zip archive... AGAIN, lol (thanks EnormousD!)
    updated Mongoose TechStringMod to add a " (QUEST)" tag after quest names in the Enables, Helps Enable, and Obsoletes event lists in Tech mouseovers

    10 May 2016
    renamed canTriggerBlessedSea2 to canTriggerBlessedSeaDone, swapped Holy Mountain quest Done and Reveal events in the XML, and reordered quest functions in CvRandomEventInterface.py to be consistent, and make more sense with the Trigger ones always first
    corrected "in to" to "into" in 11 event TXT_KEYs, and fixed a double-space in 1
    rewrote Noble Knights help TXT_KEY to list Gunpowder separately with "firearms", to explain completion requires qualifying for at least one reward option, and to explicitly state that the first reward option requires a State Religion (for the latter two: thanks EnormousD!)
    checked all other quests for potentially-unavailable reward option sets, but didn't find any
    removed bogus links to non-existent Callback, CanDo, and Help Python functions in EVENT_OVERWHELM_DONE_1, since they don't exist in vanilla either and are thus clearly erroneous (and might cause Python exceptions, who knows)
    added Modern Transport, Corsair, Sloop, Assault Ship, and Electric Submarine to Bermuda Triangle trigger list
    added Modern Transport, Deceres, Corsair, Sloop, Leviathan, Assault Ship, Floating Fortress, Electric Submarine, and Manta to Experienced Captain trigger list
    added Royal Crossbowman to Stronger Fittings; Torpedo-Bomber to Long Range Fighters; Deceres to Reinforced Hull and Warships Reward 2; and Dreadnaught, Leviathan, and Torpedo-Bomber to Overwhelm Reward 1
    changed Warships Reward 2 from Combat Event to "Drill 1 and Drill Event"
    removed Fighter Legend, added Torpedo-Bomber, and fixed old name on Interceptor-Bomber in canTriggerOverwhelmDone

    10-11 May 2016
    changed Pasture Built event from "Cows, Pigs, Horses, Sheep" to "Horses, Bison, Cows, Pigs, Sheep" to fix missing Bison and to use the current correct XML order
    fixed bad grammar in Stronger Fittings global news TXT_KEY
    updated Overwhelm help text to list all 4 qualifying Fighter units individually rather than using their vague SpecialUnit category name

    11 May 2016
    rewrote Overwhelm quest Python functions to make 2 speed optimizations in canTriggerOverwhelm(), add WorldSize scaling (4-2-3-9 to "4-2-1-3 to 8-4-3-9"), add support for using UU names in the Quest Log text when active, and fix getSpecialUnitInfo() calls that were leftover from the previous version
    updated TXT_KEY_EVENT_OVERWHELM_HELP_1 again to change "Oil for the planes" to "Iron and Oil for the ships and Aluminum and Rubber for the planes", and to fix %s9 number on Manhattan Project name argument
    reworked Overwhelm quest AGAIN to change Battleship requirement to "Dreadnaught or Battleship", matching promotion reward; tech requirement from "Military Research and Naval Supremacy" to "Assembly Line or Mechanized Warfare"; and obsoletion techs from "AquaEngineering or Shielding" to "Jet Flight, Rocketry, or Nuclear Power", preventing any possible lockout due to advancing past the required Destroyer, Carrier, and/or Fighter types

    12 May 2016
    updated TXT_KEY_EVENT_OVERWHELM_HELP_1 again to use the updated obsoletion techs, and to separate out all the commas, and's, and or's from the special color tags rather than being lazy about it like the rest of the event text still is, sigh :)
    downloaded HeroicFort's French Musketeer and Ethiopian and Zulu Infantry 2 rar packs, and to check for use as source copies, his Mexican, Incan and Argentinian Rifleman, and Ethiopian and Zulu Infantry 1 and Machine Gun, rar packs

    12-14 May 2016
    updated Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix to clean up the code a little in a number of places, rewrite and significantly optimize CvSelectionGroup::isAmphibPlot(), and add 2 coastal land checks and make a major vanilla code bugfix in CvPlayerAI::AI_getPlotCanalValue()
    updated Mongoose LakeSizeMod to move lake size calculation to a single location and simplify it; and to clean up and optimize CvPlot::canTrain() code, remove allowance for Water Cities in size-1 lakes to train Workboats and Constructors, and to change Water City allowance for training all other water units from anywhere to requiring ocean size and obeying the unit minimum area size argument

    14-15 May 2016
    extended Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix to rewrite the "bPrereqBonuses" Unit-XML-tag section of CvPlot::canTrain() to improve efficiency of Water Cities training water units, handle Water Cities training land units correctly which was completely missing (sigh), and make ANOTHER vanilla code bugfix that doesn't currently matter but WOULD BE critically important if Workers were like Workboats and only had resource-harvesting builds available
    changed bPrereqBonuses on Constructor from 1 to 0 to fix bug with it not being able to be built in smaller bodies of water that don't have any resources
    further improved the bPrereqBonuses same-domain check to not count a bonus in the tile itself if there's a city there, since workers can't build anything in city tiles
    extended Mongoose OpenBordersCanalAccessFix to allow Work Boats and Constructors to enter any city tile, and to explicitly block all other water units from being able to enter lake tiles

    15 May 2016
    extended Mongoose LakeSizeMod to add isSeaWorker() helper function
    changed LAKE_MAX_AREA_SIZE global from 4 to 6, and updated new Mongoose LakeSizeMod function to change result from "4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18" to "6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 19"
    changed iMinAreaSize on all military ships from 20 to -1, matching Workboat and Constructor, to fix a bridging coastal city still being able to make and/or send warships into a relatively small, ie "7 to 20" but still less than 20, size inland sea while a non-coastal player on the same inland sea STILL can't make warships to defend, and also to remove the last non-scaling water element
    updated Mongoose BarbarianMod to change monster spawn area size requirement from "8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22" to "7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 23, 27, 33", based on new lake size definition

    16, 21 May 2016
    extended Mongoose BuildingFunctionalityMod to allow multiple FreeBonus entries in a Building XML entry, added NUM_BUILDING_FREE_AND_BONUSES XML global and set it to 5, and moved all the 2 and 5x Wonders from DLL hardcoding over to the new system (FINALLY!!! been trying to get this done for months, geesh...)

    21 May 2016
    extended Mongoose BuildingFunctionalityMod to add getNUM_BUILDING_FREE_AND_BONUSES() Python access, updated Pedia Resource page and canTriggerIndependentFilms() to work with the new system, and optimized the latter
    updated Museum Template saves AGAIN lol, and updated the archive zip for them once and for all (YAY!!!)
    increased size on Japanese Yamato Class from 0.83 to 0.84 (one last adjustment tweak to celebrate!)

    21-22 May 2016
    major rewrite of the Resource and Improvement Pedia pages

    26 June 2016
    partially reverted 4 lines of BetterAI code in CvCityAI::AI_bestPlotBuild() to fix crash on city capture in D's current multiplayer game (thanks EnormousD!)
    doubled all Corporation yield and commerce output values, and decreased each one's maintenance value from 100 to 50 (thanks EnormousD!)
    updated private version to 4.1b4

    13 Nov 2016
    re-read recent notes, started getting organized and refamiliarized with everything again, and tested D's Russia crash game and three October crash games, which except for the second (by filesize) October one worked with PlotGroup stuff disabled, so there's clearly only one possible conclusion sigh

    14 Nov 2016
    finished full WinMerge comparison of 4.1b4 vs 4.2 codebases just to refamiliarize with everything and double-check that the latter had everything it was supposed to have; and made private zip of 4.2 source through 26 Jun 2016 (whew, geez)

    14-15 Nov 2016
    decreased Corporation maintenance from 100 to 50, and doubled their yield and commerce outputs, roughly matching the new 4.1b values but still based on the new 4.2 output system (thanks EnormousD!)
    *** went through and reverted to vanilla code on all Mongoose RiverLinkFix blocks, leaving it commented out for future reference, to fix multiple persistent crashes in D's 4.1b games that were clearly PlotGroup-related (grr... oh well hehe) (thanks EnormousD!)

    15 Nov 2016
    updated StatsMod to add separate Titanium coughup tracking instead of annoyingly lumping it in with Aluminum (long overdue, heh)

    15-16 Nov 2016
    StatsMod: fixed counts going to the wrong land/water type on all 4 combat outcomes in hybrid battles ie Helicopter vs Battleship (though it's still not perfect b/c Total Land Battles is just the sum of the Land Attacking and Land Defending sums) (thanks EnormousD!)
    cleaned up combined Retreat/Withdrawal tracking allocations
    cleaned up Python tag names, compacted dialog text in the highest/lowest odds sections, and fixed "Retreat" and "Withdrawal" names being backwards in the Fighter Battle Odds line
    removed attacker and defender retreat chances from average and extreme combat odds, since what you actually WANT is the raw victory/defeat chance in the actual combat itself (and the latter wasn't checking whether a safety unit was present to enable the withdrawal either which would've needed to be fixed had it stayed, heh)

    added 1 missing RiverLinkFix comment block and code reversion in CvGameCoreUtils.cpp, and 4 in CvPlot.cpp, which finally got it compiling again, woohoo

    17 Nov 2016
    added Mongoose CaravanValueFix to set Tech, Tech Monopoly, Unit, and Disband values for Caravan and Freight, and Tech Monopoly values for Worker and Settler class units as well, all of which were zero in the vanilla code and needed to be updated for the mod's Tech and Unit content

    18 Nov 2016
    checked all "Programming 1" versus "Programming 2" files and folders as needed against the Corrupt Files list from 6 Apr 2016 (1 folder + 7 files) to make sure everything was intact and valid, and nothing was missing, and collapsed/consolidated/merged them back down to just one main working Programming root folder AT LAST
    rebuilt all 9 .pak files to perfectly synchronize with the slightly-updated source files (any problems with them are now guaranteed to show up in-game and not get missed)
    StatsMod: fixed Retreat and Withdrawal outcomes going to the wrong Land/Water category on the other player (ie the winner) in hybrid battles, and removed "Combat" from the "Average Land/Water/Air Combat Odds" lines to prevent overflow (plus it looks better this way anyway, heh)
    updated Titleplate for still using BBAI 1.02b + UP 1.6 codebase and not K-Mod yet, and the small center orange subtitle matching 4.1's version
    switched Fossils resource from 3D white ribcage on grass icon to pterodactyl stone block icon
    added Methane Ice symbol to the larger main GameFont by shrinking the main resource icon, since it is in fact used by the Extractor Pedia entry text and it was getting pretty annoying not having it there
    made full update pass on all Animal shadow sizes since only a few were worked on before (29 Jan, 2 Feb 2016) and most were still horribly far off lol, and improved Hippopotamus shadow by basing it on the Rhinoceros one

    19 Nov 2016
    added 2 missing isMonster() call replacements in CvUnit::maxCombatStr() (from random accumulated notes below - thanks! lol)
    added Mongoose ResourceStringMod to add obsoletion techs to the bottom of resource mouseovers (from random accumulated notes below - thanks! lol)
    updated Mongoose BarbarianMod to allow Barb cities to train air combat units with collateral damage, ie bombers
    tested Mongoose NewUnitTileDamageFix to make sure units in Desert cities do indeed spawn healthy with it, and that they still spawn wounded without it, in both SinglePlayer and MultiPlayer games, since D emphasized recently how those work differently on the turnover (MP does cities then units both at end of player turn; SP does cities at end of player turn then units at start of NEXT turn)
    extended Mongoose TileDamageMod to clear orders and wake from sleep on units that will die on the next turnover if they take the same tile damage that they just received on this turnover, in addition to the alert that is already provided
    updated tech costs again to further increase Renaissance through Future relative to the last 4.2 version, and cleaned up the tech costs notes file significantly (thanks EnormousD!)
    added Drill 5 and Drill Event to Metal Decks event
    added Combat Event 2, Overwhelm Event, Pinch Event 2, and Flanking Event 2 promotions, and swapped them in on Stronger Fittings and Harbormaster, Overwhelm, Guns Not Butter, and Noble Knights respectively, to prevent not getting any rewards in certain cases (thanks EnormousD!)

    20 Nov 2016
    switched to source version on Mechanized Warfare icon (slightly larger filesize - grr at missing these things heh)
    added Combat Event 3 at +6% Strength; increased Overwhelm Event from +5 to +6% Strength, Pinch Event 2 from +10 to +12% vs Early and Modern Gun, and Flanking Event 2 from +5 to +6% Withdrawal; and added +2% Healing to Overwhelm Event
    moved Harbormaster Done1 from Combat Event 2 to 3, and Rifled Cannon from Combat Event 1 to 2, to accomodate the new (since last night, lol) 3-prong system
    changed Harbormaster Done3 from Flanking Event 1 to 2, matching Noble Knights quest reward and potency; and War Chariots and Elite Swords from Combat Event 1 to 3, matching Harbormaster Done1 quest reward and potency
    added Civ3 Parachute icon to Paradrop mission, fixing duplicate with Military Research using vanilla Paradrop icon
    went through the C2C icon folder fully, and stored zip collections almost fully, looking for better options on a few things, and cleaned up and organized the icon working folders a bit
    added C2C icons: ModernArtTheatre as Sydney Opera House replacing my custom-made one (for now at least), and ChemistryLab as Pinch Event 2 replacement
    moved Leadership promotion icon to Combat Event 1 and Combat Event 1 icon to Combat Event 3, added ivory greek head engraving icon to replace the former, and added white reactor core icon as Combat Event 2 (this design sounds bleh on paper, but turns out to be niiice :))
    renamed Biplane Legend to Advanced Biplane, Fighter Legend to Advanced Fighter, and Jet Fighter Legend to Advanced Jet Fighter, matching Advanced Tank design and fully eliminating the annoying notion that these elite units were somehow related to the Ace promotion series (looong overdue, not sure why I never signed off on this change before heh)
    switched from VerticalFarming back to OrganicCity icon on Hydroponic Farm building, and changed Mass Transit icon from small personal monorail-type-thing to white and yellow double-bus
    switched from .dds BACK to .tga versions of Monk, Special Forces (Desert), and Trebuchet; Sloop, Missile Cruiser, and Assault Ship; and U2 Dragon Lady and J10 Chengdu icons (at self: freaking idiot thinking .dds's to "blend in" with existing icons would ever be a GOOD idea, sigh...)
    found the good-quality version of the orange/pink/red longboat icon I was desperately looking for for hours a long while back while going through the C2C icon folder yet again, updated it to add a mask and standard border, and swapped it in on the Viking Kogge (holy carp - YUSS!)

    21 Nov 2016
    updated template WBs for the 3 air unit name changes, and template saves for hopefully the LAST time on this version lol
    increased size on Indian Medieval Female Settler subunit from 0.41 to 0.42, and finished what was I'm guessing a change from 2014-15? where 3 Medieval Asian Settler subunits were missing their hat texture, probably b/c I was going to try them with the vanilla ancient one and removed it from Shared, but stopped all work before getting around to updating the .nif's? (sigh, lol)
    added HeroicFort's High Elf Paladin as generic Crusader, and added it to Viking, Celtia, and Sumeria
    moved Alien Worship icon to new generic Crusader, added C2C's LunarMegastructures icon to replace it, and added yellow-and-red Islam symbol icon to Islamic Crusader VU
    added HeroicFort's Native American Infantry v2 (the one with the brown hat - nice!) and Machine Gun
    switched to source version on the .nif only of HeroicFort's Argentine Rifleman since it uses a unified model with no separate head, used it to also update the Swedish Rifleman, and added his Mexican Rifleman as South American to Aztec and Maya
    added HeroicFort's Pirate Musketman 4 as a First Mate subunit in the Barbarian Dread Pirate UU, and reduced its Sailor quantity from 3 to 2 to make room

    22 Nov 2016
    reverted 18 Rifleman and 10 Redcoat Stab animations to their normal vanilla .kfm links that had been stupidly "upgraded" sometime in 2014-16? as part of 4.2 development?, fixing bugs with those units leaving their rifles suspended high in mid-air while doing the stabbing motion and also after they die but before the entire combat for their unit finishes
    moved 2 more texture files over to Shared, fixing 1 missing gloss file on the China Rifleman model in the process
    tested the new system that lets buildings provide multiple resources at once properly in the XML, and King Richard's Crusade's passive Crusader spawning ability
    tested the Hubble Space Telescope's updated orbiting vision system (omg, FINALLY - took FOREVER to get to this, the code was written on 14-15 Sept 2014 sigh), and made 4 major updates:
    on Flat maps it now bounces when the center hits an edge, rather than when an edge of the vision area hits an edge, to avoid leaving permanently unreachable areas in the corners; and overflow lighting was added as a result (matching the other 2 map types) even though this makes no sense on a Flat map, since it wouldn't be fair to lose up to 3/4's of the active vision area some of the time
    the vision area itself was updated from a fixed circle to an oval that scales based on the current map's width/height ratio, to provide an even and equal coverage experience on any map shape
    the code was rewritten to make geometry calculations directly instead of relying on plotDistance(), which eliminated rounding errors that made the edges of the vision area look terrible, and the int argument and kludged "float * 1.1" radius check were removed as a result, which improved the shape of the active vision area from approximating circular curvature to generating it exactly
    numerous radius and speed combinations were tested before finally settling on values that were similar to before but slightly higher; and learned the actual value of the y/x speed ratio is critical to continuously sweeping across the whole map rather than pathing along a fixed 4-line route over and over, as well as to how efficiently and consistently it does so

    23 Nov 2016:
    posted update in the MM subforum for the first time since January (sorry...), and downloaded 4 zips from the new CastorTroy unit graphics thread as well as the 2 for the new K-Mod 1.45 release (wow, heck of an update from 1.42b, and he even has the Event OOS's in the 1.45 notes!)

    24 Nov 2016:
    made minor city turnover speed optimization in Mongoose SiegeMod, and removed 1 BBAI and 9 of MY completely unnecessary "GC.getGameINLINE()." calls in CvGame.cpp, lol
    updated passive Crusader spawning ability to scale based on map size in addition to the existing gamespeed scaling, to range from 1.0 to 15.0 instead of 1.0 to 6.0 turns between spawns, and to use a single consolidated function for the scaling calculation (sigh)
    moved Metal Decks obsoletion from Composites to Nuclear Power, and Long-Range Fighters obsoletion from Composites to Jet Flight
    removed applyTowerShield(), applySmokelessPowder(), applyStrongerFittings(), applyFiringPins(), applyRifledCannon(), applyMetalDecks(), applyLongRangeFighters(), applyHalberd(), and applyReinforcedHull() callback links since these functions don't exist (and probably aren't in vanilla either, sigh)
    added +50% vs Mounted to Machine Gun (thanks K-Mod!), and Jet Flight requirement to Modern Carrier (thanks EnormousD!)
    moved Mass Media obsoletion on Sports League to Lasers (nice!)
    extended Mongoose NewUnitTileDamageFix to make new units trained in cities ignore the first round of tile damage that hits them, and reinstated the vanilla safety call as a result (don't have to worry about healing strength always being sufficient this way, and it's probably better NOT disabling vanilla safeguards when you have a choice... lol)
    redid Template WB (just tweaking 2 options for the heck of it heh) and save files for the Hubble and TDFix code updates (good thing I have this routine down to 12 minutes, hehe), and updated Titleplate one last time just to tweak the orange text a little
    added CastorTroy's Tripoli Squire as Carthaginian Crusader, and Hospitaller Cannons Warrior icon to existing Hospitaller Crusader model (nice - thanks!)

    25 Nov 2016:
    added Bakuel's Javanese Islamic Bowman as Khmer Longbowman
    added upgrade option from AT Infantry to Mechanized Infantry (thanks EnormousD!)
    increased size on Egyptian Medieval Female Settler subunit from 0.42 to 0.43
    added Carrier-related cargo restriction notes on a few units in their Pedia text (thanks EnormousD!)
    added +5% Neutral Healing to Combat 3 (Air), and +5% Enemy Healing to Combat 4 (Air), for Carrier use which apparently wasn't considered before, heh
    decreased Neural Interface from 4 to +3% Research, 20 to +15% Culture and Great People Rate, 80 to +60% Great General Rate, and Very High to High Upkeep
    added +50% Domestic Great General Rate to Mercantilism, and increased it from Low to Medium Upkeep
    Pedia Unit page: Movement hidden when displaying a Range line, Range line swapped up above Production Cost to be in the same place Movement is, and Tribe/Settler production cost no longer hidden b/c MM is using the normal system for it now albeit with a second multiplier for some reason heh
    fixed bug with Domestic Advisor where, with cities named "Bird" and "Birdnest", the former's specialist +/- buttons along the bottom were showing up on both of them (thanks EnormousD!)

    26 Nov 2016:
    extended NewUnitTileDamageFix to apply to Crusaders spawned by King Richard's Crusade the same way it does for normal trained units and tested it, which does indeed trigger the brief red-circle-indicator on turnover spawn in Single-Player - nice!

    27 Nov 2016:
    renamed FreeUnit to AutoSpawnUnitClass as it freaking SHOULD be (ugh); moved Mongoose BuildingFunctionalityMod Crusader autospawn building search out of the city turnover loop, which also allows current production to be reset whenever the type is changed; and moved Mongoose SiegeMod Palisade removal when Walls are present out of the city turnover loop, which also allows the removal to take effect immediately rather than on the next turnover
    updated Mongoose BuildingStringMod to display a "Removes Palisade" line on Walls, matching the "Removed by Walls" line on Palisade, and to properly use civ-specific building names on both (sigh)

    Version 4.2 Patch Notes - Part 8

    Spoiler :
    29 Nov 2016:
    redid the template saves again for the new AutoSpawn type slot on each city (...)
    set Civic Advisor to use smaller fontsize on detail text when window is less than its maximum size, and on Theocracy, Ancestor Worship, Industrialism, and Environmentalism regardless, and updated version to 2.2 as a result
    rewrote a large number of civic detail strings, both existing in the mod and still from vanilla, to add highlight colors, make things more succinct and consistent, and fix one missing link from the previous pass, greating improving readability across the entire Civic Advisor (note to self: declaring to self before that leaving everything alone as a solid wall of white text was a GOOD thing, was idiotic, and just an excuse to be lazy)
    extended Mongoose CivicStringMod to cover the entire parse function rather than just a few small bits and pieces, finally organizing everything and making the code readable, improving the list order on a number of civic effects, and copying the new "Worker Work Rate" string out to its matching tech and wonder lines
    updated titleplate for the new version number and to add HeroicFort's name to the list for his 6 unit models now in use, which ended up triggering a reordering of the bottom 4 lines, fitting it in without adding an extra line and making much better use of the available space heh

    4 Dec 2016:
    added Mountain Mine weight to Putin matching his Mine entry; Mountain Village weight to 19 leaders matching their Town entries; Woodland Cottage and Forest Preserve weight to Logan and Sitting Bull; Lumberyard and Lumbermill weight to Montezuma; Extractor weight to Churchill, Franco, Maria II, Hannibal, and Hirohito; and Floating Town weight to Harald, DeWitt, Hannibal, and Marcos
    fixed PlotLSystem bug with Mountain Mine not updating to Modern Mine model in Modern Era like Mine does (re-referencing the Mine art files DOES work, but you have to specify a scale value HERE TOO, not just in the ArtDef!) (thanks EnormousD!)
    updated No Elite Units game option mouseover text for Deceres and Advanced Biplane/Fighter/JetFighter name updates (dang, almost missed this, yikes), and to add "*** " indentation to the start of each list (woohoo!)
    removed latitude requirement on Hubble Space Telescope (thanks EnormousD!)
    added F15 Eagle as Modern Fighter UU for America once again!, matching... Civ3, I think? lol, and filling out their "miscellaneous" very-late-game UU arsenal which was feeling a bit thin (yay!)
    updated F15 to use teamcolor, which was really bothering me since the circle areas were already there so it looked even WORSE not having it, and moved the main wing circles further in as well
    updated the internal XML names of the other 3 American UUs for consistency, and, yes, redid the template saves again for this and the F15 (......)

    5 Dec 2016:
    downloaded Xyth's new posting, at my request (and subsequent PM prompting, hehehe), of Bakuel's missing Filipino Medieval, Malaysian Medieval (Post-Melaka), and Aceh Medieval (Early Sultanate) zip packs
    added Bakuel's Filipino Armored Horseman as Khmer Marauder, moved existing one BACK to Knight, and reluctantly retired existing Knight model (imported from India)
    added Bakuel's Javanese Islamic Heavy Cavalry as Khmer Horseman (Medieval), and retired existing one (also imported from India)
    added Bakuel's Post-Melaka Silat Warrior (Keris) as Khmer Assassin, and moved existing light-green robe model to China, loosely matching Korea (woohoo)
    added Bakuel's Filipino Japanese Mercenary (Naginata), Filipino Early Hand Cannon (Moro), Post-Melaka Crossbowman, and Post-Melaka Musketman (Snap Matchlock) as Khmer Pirate subunits
    added Bakuel's Malay Scout (Senoi) as Khmer Scout, Aceh Sultanate Orangkaya Swordsman as Khmer Explorer (niiice!), and Malay Post-Melaka Bowman as Khmer Ranger

    6 Dec 2016:
    added AsioAsioAsio's Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka as Early Rocket VU for Japan, cleaned up the .nif a little, and used it to add a few effects to the V1 model, even though they still don't dive and disappear like the Guided Missile sadly

    7 Dec 2016:
    increased size on vanilla Fighter from 0.54 to 0.55, Modern Armor from 0.58 to 0.62, first Leopard 2 model from 0.4 to 0.41, T90 from 0.54 to 0.56, T55 from 0.56 to 0.57, Oliphant from 0.42 to 0.43, Type99 from 0.34 to 0.36, and Type90 from 0.34 to 0.35
    added TheBladeRoden's Urban Modern Armor skin, and set Rome and Korea to use it
    added the unused Olive Modern Armor skin bundled with 2 existing VUs that were just using its treads, and set Aztec, Maya, and Celtia to use it
    made custom damage texture for the new Modern Tank (Urban) skin

    7-8 Dec 2016:
    made custom damage textures for the existing Stealth Tank (Black) and Manticore models, and a proper gloss texture for the Olive Modern Tank treads
    fixed the teamcolor circles on the front of the turret on the new Modern Tank Urban and Olive skins, and the tread color on the Urban skin

    9 Dec 2016:
    decreased size on Stealth Tank (Black) from 0.5 to 0.49, and on Stealth Tank (Desert) from 0.56 to 0.55

    10 Dec 2016:
    moved +1 Food on Igloo from Improved Fishing to Early Fishing, and +1 Commerce on Snowman from Priesthood to Exploration
    added +1 Commerce on Igloo to Refuge Building, and -1 Commerce on Igloo to Advanced Hunting
    added Can See Invisible Animals, and Starts with Commando and Medic 1, to Ancient King
    rewrote Prolific +1 Food text lines slightly for better clarity
    added missing Mobile unit category to free Aggression promotions
    added +50% Production on Royal Crossbowman and Chinese Royal ChuKoNu, Clockwork Golem, Big Bertha, and Advanced Tank and German Tiger Tank to Aggressive
    added +50% Production on Elder Longbowman and Japanese Elder Yumi, Monk, Shadow Demon, Medevac, and Ornithopter to Tenacious
    added +50% Production on Medevac and Deceres to Seafaring
    changed all Aggression and Tenacity units from 50 to +40% Production

    11 Dec 2016:
    added +50% Production on Falcon, Helicopter, Gunship, Wraith, Banshee, Ironclad, Assault Ship, and Electric Submarine to Seafaring
    added +40% Production on War Dog to Charismatic, and +40% Production on Scout to Expansive
    changed land Seafaring units from 50 to +40% Production
    rewrote Expansive No Improvement Gold Costs text line slightly for better clarity
    updated Mongoose TraitFunctionalityMod to change Seafaring carried unit survival health from 100%-50%-1% to 95%-48%-1%
    added a large number of links and color tags to the Trait detail strings, and a few to the related SDK code as needed; fixed a few final broken links in the Civic strings; and made one major speed optimization and a number of negligible ones in CvGameTextMgr.cpp
    greatly extended Mongoose TextColorMod to provide different name colors for National Units, UUs, UNUs, and UBs, matching Buildings, Projects, and Wonders! (omg HOLY CARP yes!!! - but why wasn't this done ages ago? rofl sigh)

    12-17 Dec 2016:
    further extended Mongoose TextColorMod, and added a massive number of links and color tags, to the Building, Tech, Unit, Promotion, Terrain, Feature, and Improvement detail strings, to fully implement text colorization
    made numerous minor formatting tweaks to improve various strings and make them consistent

    19-20 Dec 2016:
    extended Mongoose UnitBuildingClassPrereqMod to fix bug with Assassin, Paladin, and Crusader still being trainable in inland cities after Grenadiers have been unlocked, and only removed if Paratrooper or higher is unlocked (since that's the only sequence that can supercede Pirate), since Pirates require a building (Lighthouse) that is automatically unavailable in inland cities, blocking upgrade set completion (thanks EnormousD!)

    21-22 Dec 2016:
    further extended Mongoose UnitBuildingClassPrereqMod, and rewrote the previous section slightly, to make Pirate completely hidden in the production options for inland cities, matching all water units, rather than showing up disabled

    22 Dec 2016:
    fixed weapon position on Korean Maceman and Medieval Horseman models

    23 Dec 2016:
    added normal icon border and mask to England Swordsman icon
    made major efficiency improvement in 2 places with the hardcoded type references for the +%vs pair string displays on units
    added missing colorization to the Veteran/Ace and Amphibious effects, and missing links to the Amphibious and Mobility effects (oops, heh)
    extended Mongoose WorldSizeScalingFix to flatten corporation generated resource output quantity with multiple input types, and to add WorldSize-based scaling, for a result of one from the first input, then one for every "1 to 2.75 times number of types" total inputs, which was actually difficult given the feedback loop the vanilla function implements, heh (thanks EnormousD!)

    24 Dec 2016:
    updated Mongoose AirLethalityMod to add strength ratio scaling to air lethality chance and non-lethal damage dealt, as well as to the unused negative value non-lethal damage cap specifier (thanks EnormousD!)
    fixed VERY longstanding bug with the intercepting unit using the defender's extra lethality chance from promotions, rather than their own (what, the actual... are you KIDDING me? ... sigh. sorry guys lol)
    increased Hawk from 1 to 3 AirStrength, 25 to 30% Interception, and 25 to 60% Lethality as a result
    fixed ANOTHER very old bug, this time with how interceptDamage() is CALLED when the defender wins an air combat - this didn't matter before, but would've caused a big problem now that strength ratios are being used (...)
    StatsMod: improved "Features Grown/Cleared" to "Growths/Cleared", and changed "Forest" to "Forest/Bmb" and "Swamp" to "Swp/Bog" to specify tracking that seems hidden or missing otherwise
    fixed bug with StatsMod tracking not registering Feature Clears (thanks EnormousD!)
    added and updated color on a bunch MORE miscellaneous strings, including Goody Hut results, the First Palace and Contact Espionage reminders, and the City View H/H mouseover components

    25 Dec 2016:
    extended Mongoose FeatureGrowthMod to use the feature variety that is most present in a growth's cardinal-adjacent source tiles, rather than always using the default variety (No more pine trees freaking EVERYWHERE - yay!!! Can also soften rigidly-straight latitude threshold lines, and will handle map generator altitude and temperature settings, and regional maps, correctly!)
    added Platyping's Sydney Opera House, Dead Hand as Manhattan Project, and Great Firewall as The Internet single-frame .bik's (thanks EnormousD!)
    replaced existing single-frame .bik's with Platyping's ones on Nazca Lines and Serpent Mound
    replaced existing single-frame .bik with RoM's movie on King Richard's Crusade

    26 Dec 2016:
    removed Manhattan Project and The Internet single-frame .bik's since it turns out vanilla DOES have these 2, even though it doesn't play movies AT ALL for ANY other Projects, sigh lol
    replaced existing LunarColonization single-frame .bik with Platyping's Mont Saint Michel (LOL, but still WAY better than a generic Space Shuttle frame that doesn't even REFERENCE the moon in any way, plus it's a good picture AND doesn't look super-redundant with the Space Shuttle launch part of the ISS movie!)
    fixed bug with Manhattan Project having an empty gray movie window since the redundant second XML entry for it was using a mod path ("Project" folder) to a file that obviously didn't exist (and doesn't once again! lol), and was superceding the earlier vanilla entry with it (oops, heh) (thanks EnormousD!)
    decreased Hawk from 3 to 2 AirStrength, and 100 to +25% vs Archery; and increased it from 60 to 65% Lethality

    27 Dec 2016:
    added color tags on the StatsMod strings, and the unit and civic +Gold Support Cost strings
    added +2 Experience on Air Units to Hangar to give them 2 normal building sources, matching Mounted Units
    set Pedia to use the real value strings on +Free Units on Tribal Law and Vassalage, and to use a player's UB for +Building H/H civics, when in a game, matching the Civic Advisor (but left generic State Religion strings in use in the Pedia when in a game)
    added K-Mod's CvGame::calculateSyncChecksum() update, and CvRandomEventInterface.py .sort() fixes - not sure if this will fix ALL the event OOS's D encountered, but it should help at least some :)

    28 Dec 2016:
    added some final color tags on the Can Perform Paradrops, Heal Building and Promotion, Terrain Movement Cost, and Speed Promotion strings; changed the latter from "+1 Movement Range" to "+1 Moves" with link, matching Refrigeration effect; and compacted "1 Extra" to "+1" on the FS/FSC Promotion strings
    fixed bug with the Pedia Forward history not being preserved, even though the Forward button remained available, when selecting a main category (without a real item specified) at the beginning of or in the middle of a history sequence (the Back button does NOT correctly become available if used at the beginning of one, but it still works to jump back to the real first entry heh - will fix this later, probably in the planned big Pedia update)
    added +2 Experience on Corsair and Privateer to Harbor, and Lighthouse requirement to Corsair and Privateer, matching Pirate
    changed UnitBuildingClassPrereqMod to UnitBuildingClassPrereqFix, and rewrote it to use a modified XML entry directly, matching everything else, rather than manually extracting the Building entry's BuildingClass
    fixed bug with the UnitBuildingClassPrereqFix implementation from a week ago, where the function was only completely hiding units that require water buildings in inland cities, rather than in all inland plots, matching all water units
    updated Mongoose BarbarianMod to remove explicit Sandworm requirement when trying a Bombard command/mission on animals and monsters, since all other types are blocked immediately anyway, AND since other types SHOULD be allowed to IF they are ever given iBombardRate stats, heh
    rewrote old heal-related Mongoose AnimalMod code in CvUnitAI.cpp to fix several bugs and make several optimizations (sigh), and extended it to replace iCost -2 with bMonster tag in the XML
    extended Mongoose BuildingFunctionalityMod to move Silk Road's InlandTradeRoutes, Nuclear Plant's NukeProductionModifier, and Harbor's +2 Experience from DLL hardcoding over to the XML (whew! think that's the last of it, finally)
    fixed bug with missing the CvBuildingInfo constructor when adding the GlobalDomainFreeExperiences array a while back - WHOOPS! argh/grr/wtf/sigh
    updated Pedia Unit page to support PrereqBuildingClass, which fixes Lighthouse instead of Trading Post showing up on the Pirate entry when playing Vikings, for example

    29-30 Dec 2016:
    rewrote the DLL code that actually uses the 5 new XML effects

    29 Dec 2016:
    fixed bug with... I'm assuming BBAI since vanilla doesn't have the bGlobal version of the function heh, but anyway, where CvCity::getProductionModifier() was putting local MilitaryProduction effects in its global total (though this only matters if its 2 halves are ever called separately anywhere, which I don't have time to check heh)
    updated the Pedia Unit page for the new BuildingClassPrereq field (which it turns out was the only thing affected outside the DLL, woohoo :))

    30 Dec 2016:
    added color to a bunch of final things, including Monster "Can't Attack Cities" extended to "Attack, Capture, or Enter", "Inland / Coastal Trade Routes in All Cities", and all Great People "Birth Rate" and Great General "Emergence" strings
    added variable color to "Free Building in Every City"
    changed name on the "Industrialism" Tech to "Industrialization", and on the Monarchy, Democracy, Communism, and Fascism Techs to their vanilla Civic names to eliminate all remaining possible link bugs in the Pedia from duplicate names, and b/c using the generic names in the TechTree matches the rest of the content there SO much better!
    added missing ITMC to Ice Golem, and missing +100% vs Ice Golem to Flamethrower

    31 Dec 2016:
    completely removed the brand-new UnitClassExperience XML field and all related DLL code, and added PirateExperience to replace it, to avoid killing the mod with horrible savefile size (quickly estimated at +5MB for a mid-to-late-game save using a very large map size, JUST FOR THIS ONE FREAKING FIELD argh/sigh)
    cleaned up CvAdvisorUtils.py (which handles "Feat" stuff, which I've never actually seen before lol) for the mod's current Unit (Privateer) and UnitCombat (Gun, Siege, Naval) types
    rewrote CvCityAI::AI_experienceWeight() to include all main (ie non-Pirate, heh) Experience sources, and to fix bug with it using the old invalid vanilla UnitCombat type "Gun"
    fixed AI evaluation for Nuclear Plant +100% Nuke Production effect; and added completely missing AI evaluation for Harbor +2 Pirate Experience, and Silk Road +2 Inland Trade Routes in All Cities, effects (wtf? sigh)
    added color to Era display on the MainInterface (YES!)
    cleaned up "Nuclear Protest" Python functions to remove direct Tactical Nuke and ICBM unit references by name
    fixed bug with old Mongoose TraitFunctionalityMod code (obviously preceding the big final round of Trait updates, heh) where it was checking and displaying Trait +FreeHammers in all city yield mouseovers, rather than using the right yield type in each (wtf? lol)

    1 Jan 2017:
    added color to the Yield, Culture, and Great People mouseover component lists, tweaked a few of the strings for consistency and clarity, expanded the Leader strings to use source Trait names, and set both the specific and generic Building and Unit strings to use the correct color for each type
    finally figured out how to allow Animals to roam freely inside player borders, which works great with the greater movement restrictions on most Animal types which allows units to flee and improvements to be safe much more easily, the larger number of Animal types which dilutes the presence of the few dangerous ones, and the fact that Animals can't pillage so improvements don't actually have to be actively defended (though this wasn't checked until the next day heh)
    changed Mermaid and Humpback Whale from UNITAI_EXPLORE_SEA to UNITAI_ANIMAL now that I actually bothered to CHECK and know that the former has all kinds of AI-player ship logic stuff in it that is unwanted for animals, AND that AI_patrol() works fine for water units

    2 Jan 2017:
    removed old "&& (!isAnimal() || canMoveInto())" extra condition from main loop in CvUnitAI::AI_anyAttack(), which was completely unnecessary and slowed things down slightly (sigh)
    changed Turtle from UNITAI_ATTACK_SEA to UNITAI_ANIMAL to make it less deadly, which is much more appropriate for an early-game sea monster
    extended Mongoose GoodyHutMod to also add some limited active deterrence to AIs grabbing Goody Huts with non-good-results units before having contact with any rival civs, rather than just not activating the beeline value while still allowing them to go there randomly (which they still can, just with slightly less chance)
    fixed bug with the new isMonster() system where Monsters wouldn't have been able to spawn at all due to their now-standard -1 production cost (OOPS! heh; sure glad I caught this one in time...)
    verified that Animals and Land Monsters all along, and now also the CanOnlyDefend Sea Monsters plus the Turtle!, can't pillage at all, which works out perfectly for game design as it turns out :)
    changed from "Coast" to "Coastal" in Terrain CityReq and Unit Aquatic strings to be (much) more clear, since the former is also used as an ACTUAL Terrain type in Native lists for monsters and Entry lists for ships!
    updated Mongoose SiegeMod to fix old Gunpowder Tech XML references in loops in CvUnitAI::AI_seaBombardRange (sigh)
    filled in these main notes from 29 Dec to here from secondary notes, since I got a bit overwhelmed (and wasn't feeling great chiropracter/neck-wise either) and tunnel-visioned in for 4 days straight heh

    3 Jan 2017:
    completely removed the dominant incentive to choose neutral tiles when patrolling, which was already disabled for Animal and Monster roaming above, to allow normal Barbs to wander/raid around in player borders in the rare case where the borders are coming from a different landmass across a narrow channel, so that there's nothing to actually beeline toward attack-wise
    added +1 River Commerce to Savanna, and added Mongoose RiverCommerceOverloadFix to block Forest Preserve, which doesn't Chop Savanna!, from double-counting it (thanks EnormousD!)
    (Note: This also works fine as-is with the 5 Improvements that DO Chop normally but NOT on Savanna - Outpost, Workshop, Mine, Watermill, and Pasture - (as well as on the 2 that don't EVER Chop, but also don't provide any RC restoration in the first place - Fort and Camp - for obvious reasons heh, and the other 3 standard Forest ones besides the Preserve aren't even ALLOWED in Savanna) since while they don't provide any RC restoration, they don't NEED to on Forest b/c they Chop it and then the Terrain underneath restores it, and on Savanna it stays put, but it also now restores RC itself baseline, so they don't have to there either.)
    fixed crash when entering WorldBuilder in the Barbarian template by adding the handful of missing non-null checks on all the Civ-specific Unit and Building calls added in the current version, mostly in the last 2 months and mostly in CvGameTextMgr.cpp, though there were a few exceptions (interestingly, I actually DO remember running into this EXACT same problem once a long time ago as well, heh)
    after THAT little 3-hour-delay hiccup, updated the private template saves one final time as the official 4.2 set (yay!)
    performed, for the first time ever!, full sweep tests on each template, ie just holding down the "W" key for about 10 seconds heh, and actually found one crash! wow holy carp; added a second copy of the Ottoman Bombard .nif with a different name to keep its stupid custom .kfm happy (grr), and remade the Units3.fpk archive as a result heh
    end version 4.2; public update

    Been playing some 6, still have 4 installed and will definitely give this a go when you feel like the new version is ready.
