    IIRC in earlier versions every modder had his own changelog. I don't know why this was chanegd, but maybe that should be the way to go for the next release? Everyone could make his personal changelog and after the release I can combine them all in this first post.

    Changelog Faustmouse:

    Events:
    - major review of Events -> They should be now more diverse in new game so that one event doesn't occour ever and ever again. Also, adjusted them to C2C.


    Captives:
    - Added CaptureModifier and CaptureResistence to Combat Classes, Units, Promotions and Civics.
    - Made new Promotions for capture modifier.

    New stuff:
    - Added various new buildings
    - Added various Resources, especially for Minerals

    Guys I saw most animal units using big texture DDS files. Mostly 512x512 pixels. I can change those files to smaller ones and units.fpk files should be much smaller without any big change of graphics quality. What do you think? I can post some pictures of animals before and after resizing textures.

    It depends upon what they look like. I won't want too much quality lost.

    I can't tell the difference. Plus smaller textures = less memory footprint

    @Sargon (and the others)
    I was more thinking that everyone keeps trakck on their own add ons and make a list of them, either here or at their own PCs. So probably better editing your post instead of doing it like you do right now. This info can be get from the SVN, too. I thought before the releease everyone can post a list like:

    New civs: XXX, YYY, ZZZ....
    New Improvements: AAA, BBB, CCC....

    instead of "Added new civ: XXX"
    "Added YYY as civ"

    • Enforced that quality improving promos could only be selected if the unit was taking its last promotion of those it's earned with xp.

    • Took our Purple Elite promotions and gave them ALL of the first promotions of any of their promotionlines, TECH_SPECIAL_PROMOTION prereq to keep them from being selectable as a trained promo unless the unit has, for whatever special reason, been assigned the first promotion in that line. For now, some of these promos may be thus removed from any actual access. We'll take a look at how to craft access to these and rebalancing them (perhaps even stronger in some cases if they have special access) next cycle. At the moment, the majority of them are greatly imbalancing the promotion structure.

    • Fixed a few more promotion access issues



    Units and Unit Combat Adjustments
    • Tweaked the Brute unit (+75% vs non-animal Barbarians & halved the build cost)

    • Scouts now able to upgrade as recon units as well as hunters rather than only hunters.

    • Fixed bug with Double Move settings for units (needed to comment out all references and code regarding the Multiple Features mod... it had been disabled but the compiler wasn't reading the disabling correctly. This may fix a number of odd bugs.)

    • Another fix for Rams so that they will always be performing breakdown attacks each round

    • Updated Unit Upgrade costs under Size Matters

    • Made some tweaks to the new Deer Cavalry on it's withdrawal and fight or flight based tags

    • General unit updates due to review process

    • Tweaked Ambusher and Rogue units.

    • Fixed Health Care units so they cannot merge/split again (was set this way until someone removed them from the core unitcombatinfos.)

    • Gave Llama Workers the free Mountaineering promo

    • Aligned Size Matters Combat Classes for transports

    • Added the transport combat class to all units that can transport anything

    • Added the combatant combat class to those transports that had previously considered the transport CC to fill that primary CC slot.

    • Prerelease Unit Review complete

    • Fixes units with base withdrawal of 100+ to be able to promote again (some few games would've had a problem with this.)

    • Fixed Generals turning into Commanders and making sure they keep their combat classes and thus are able to select promotions and therefore level up.

    • Makes units with UNITCOMBAT_IDEA completely invisible and thus incapable of being attacked (or seen by opponent players though most (really should be ALL) IDEA units also can't explore or attack). (Tales of Units are examples of Idea units.)



    Combat Mechanism Adjustments
    • Adjusted XP award for units that withdraw due to combat limit (now 1 instead of .1)

    • Damaging terrain no longer allows a unit to heal

    • Fixed a bug in pursuit validity (Birds should properly no longer be able to be pursued when both size matters and fight or flight is on.)

    • Fixed some combat odds calculation errors.

    • Rams and any other units with the Breakdown attack ability will now be able to cause return damage during combat rounds when making breakdown attacks. For this reason, I also reduced ram strengths and lowered their combat limit a bit.

    • Major rework of Ranged Bombardment (Now Called Ranged Assault).

    • Made units that cannot attack usually incapable of Ranged Assault but there's an exception tag that can be given to a unit or unitcombat that allows the unit to deny this usual rule. Applied this exception, the bRBombardForceAbility tag to UNITCOMBAT_LAW_ENFORCEMENT and UNITCOMBAT_SIEGE

    • Fixed Dynamic XP withdrawal - made withdrawal xp awards for Dynamic XP the same as it is for the core which was a much improved system and already similarly themed to the spirit of Dynamic XP

    • Debugged the Capture mechanism - resistance and capture values cannot functionally give a value beneath 0 for a unit though may total less than 0 so that they still have those negative values to overcome to catch backup to a positive factor. (Ex: -10 from civics and +10 from a promo will mean a 0 still. -10 from civics and no promo will still return a 0 amount but giving it that +10 from the promo will still only counter the negative that's actually calculated on the unit.)

    • Fixed Zone of Control

    • Adjusted double move mechanic on terrains

    • Fixed a divide by zero bug in odds calculations

    • Another Major XP award system audit.

    • Fixes some rules on what units can attack what that were giving some odd loopholes and game effects by being incorrect. (Includes a fix for units in tunnels vs units outside of those tunnels such as naval units.)

    • Enabled hidden nationality transports to load non-hidden nationality units.

    • Removed XP from razing routes under dynamic XP.

    • ADDed XP for razing improvements (equal to the amount of gold obtained by the raze divided by 100) under non-dynamic XP.

    • Fix: stops the Air Raid Interface and Mission availability when the unit has taken its turn already.



    Game Options added and tweaked
    • Fixed a goof with making the Bee Bomb rely on the Heart of War option

    • Size Matters v2.0 (see forum thread for details - if you're familiar with Size Matters v1.0 just check out the What's New and the To Do list if you wish.)

    • Era limits for how many times units may be split or merged are now based on the core group volume of the unit on size matters. Maximum Merge steps AND split steps are 1 step away from the core group volume definition on the unit PER era now. This is still simpler than it will eventually become with specific military techs unlocking the ability to further split and merge but for now it's a much improved solution.

    • Debugged Unlimited Exception tag. (Fixes Unlimited National Units so that some units that should still be limited are now again limited.)

    • A number of new options, some of which visible and complete, others shells for future development.
      • GAMEOPTION_XP_FROM_ASSIGNED_SPECIALISTS: Now, if this is not on, population assigned specialists will not be able to give any xp by unit combat to units built in the city. If on, the game may retain this recently added ability from specialists. This option is visible and selectable and operates correctly now but it is not set to default on.

      • GAMEOPTION_MORE_XP_TO_LEVEL: Makes all units require twice as much xp to gain levels (and thus promotions.) This will be useful for players that enjoy dynamics like the above option but feel their units are getting too many promos. I think some players have been feeling that in general C2C has been giving too many promotions too easily and this option is for them. It's actually adjustable how much this modifies the requirement - there's a new global definition that represents a percentage multiplier to adjust all xp level thresholds. This allows players to customize - I suppose the option could even allow all units to gain levels easier if the player wants this sort of thing! This option is visible and works properly but is not on by default.

      • GAMEOPTION_ONGOING_TRAINING: This option is a shell for near future development of the planned Ongoing Training dynamic I've been talking about around the forum. In the first round of the Combat Mod commit I introduced the building tag for this but it's required a lot of the work that's taken place since then in the xml for multiple unit combats and still requires more xml to be in-play. So for now the tags rely on this option being on to operate so that they can be worked on while the option remains hidden in the background - it's not visible nor is it defaulted to on.

      • GAMEOPTION_NIGHTMARE_MODE: SO finalized his implementation of this option as well.

    • Added a BUG option (Infrastructure Ignores Improvements) to make workers using the infrastructure build automation refuse to build improvements at all and limit them to only roads

    • Fixes the codes controlling the rule that if a unit isn't unmerged or unsplit it can't perform a number of actions (Re-enables a number of missions that were previously erroneously banned from units on Size Matters - such as construct missions by animals.)

    • An addendum option for Size Matters (Size Matters Uncut) that gives a version that doesn't alter core game unit strengths ever.

    • To eliminate an unavoidable exploit, Size Matters disables the quest events that require a player to train (possess) a certain amount of a given unit type to succeed.

    • Fixed an issue with the old size matters updating to the new on a game in progress.

    • Fixes the original ability of Size Matters to load any land unit on any land unit carrying transport - special unit people designation returns to being a 'minor carrying capacity' designator rather than a limitation to what types of units it can carry.



    Improvements and Resources
    • Fix for non-fort improvements upgrading despite being unworked - now rightfully requires a plot is worked by city.

    • Fort building adjustments to AI that should make them much wiser about if and when they decide to put a fort inside city boundaries and when to remove it.

    • New game mechanisms for improvement upgrades. Major changes here as laid out in the Alternative Improvement Upgrades Project thread.

    • Explicitly prevent Mines and Quarries from being built on Peaks, even if the peak contains a bonus that makes building them there valid while allowing any improvement with bPeakMakesValid true to be built at any time by a unit that may move onto the peak.

    • It is now possible for the Stone Gatherer to be built on peaks before mountaineering and it may upgrade to a Mountain Mine while no other mine or quarry may be built on the peak.

    • If an improvement is on a plot with a bonus, it now may NOT upgrade to the next improvement IF that particular improvement DOESN'T have that bonus as a bonus that makes valid.

    • If the tech that unlocks the primary improvementupgrade hasn't been earned yet, it won't start the upgrade countdown yet.

    • The iCost of the most expensive existing build of an improvement will be charged to the player when an improvement upgrades and the upgrade will not take place until the player can afford it.

    • Major Audit of most Improvements, Base Bonus values and most Builds along the way of setting up the improvement upgrade pathways.

    • Added new tag nested within the Improvement's BonusTypeStructs tag: bObsoleteBonusMakesValid which enables upgrades and builds to only be valid on plots with obsoleted bonuses (and still may give some resulting yield benefit).

    • Fixed numerous improvement tech prereq and build access bugs

    • Fixed the Sea Tunnel build when Hide Obsolete Builds is on.

    • Fixed a bug with Shaft Mines and Mines (making mines unbuildable on Hide Obsolete Builds)

    • Added Hydro Dam build action to many worker units

    • Fixed Fossil Digsite

    • Worker Builds Audit (Not many real changes here, just better organized and filled in some skipped builds on some units.) A Document HERE now tracks this so should be updated if any builds are changed (this only applies to basic general application land worker units.)

    • Fixed problems with improvement builds on peaks



    Display and Text Adjustments
    • Level Prereq now shows on promotion information hovers

    • Reworked the Combat Class display mechanism on units to clean things up

    • A serviceable (though imperfect) fix for property modifiers from combat classes and promotions on unit displays.

    • Fixed filters on free promotions from buildings and on getting XP towards a specific Combat Class.

    • Updated texts pertaining to Ranged Assault

    • Fixed bug with Combat Help hover on units that are so penalized they have been reduced to an equivalent 0 power

    • Fixes all text duplicates in promotions and promotionlines

    • Repaired missing UnitCombat text references

    • Fixed Hero Narbona's text references

    • Sorted out the display routine for unworked bonuses on the plot hoverover

    • Added some text displays for the combat help hover for the new size matters combat modifier tags and adjusted the way they work which should resolve some potential bugs in the mechanism

    • Removed more hidden nationality giveaway messages

    • Fixed up some display issues for the Alternative Improvement Upgrades

    • Changed some references to Ranged Bombard to Ranged Assault in text file

    • Fixed TXT_KEY_STONE_CIRCLE

    • Fixed the TXT_KEY_BUILD_WHALING_SHIPS missing txt reference.

    • Fixed a text display issue with improvement upgrades



    Art
    • Combined Hydro and My FPKs

    • Updated HydroAndTB.FPK with Faustmouse's new Goods Buttons.

    • Updated HydroAndTB.FPK with Faustmouse's files

    • Updated the Ranged Assault icon with a new symbol to help differentiate the action button

    • Updates and additional buttons by Whisperr for the Tales buttons.

    • Some Approved new buttons from Whisperr

    • Some Promotion Art re-creations

    • Fixed Some inaccurate button art references on settlers of various art define types

    • Added some new build action buttons(Fossil Dig Site, Desert Camp and Hydro Dam) that were using buttons in use for other game objects (Whisperr's contribution)

    • Fixes a bug in Worker promotion evaluations and other AI problems tied into the core problematic code.



    AI adjustments
    • Enhanced the AI's ability to generate more Rams for it's city attack stacks

    • Added a global variable so we can, via xml, adjust the point at which the AI considers itself in financial difficulty. Adjusted it from 50% to 40% for now. Looks like at one point this is what it had been set to. Reducing this value will make the AI a bit more cautious of gold deficits, more reactive to gold difficulties and less willing to spread when it's not sufficiently on top of its income vs costs.

    • Bugfix for an AI hang

    • A minor debug for Size Matters AI code

    • Updated a number of Promotion and UnitCombat tags with AI adjustments - mostly the most recently introduced ones that hadn't been included there yet.

    • Cut the value of specialist evaluations in comparison to plot working evaluations for population assignment AI by half to enhance the desire of city governers and AI players to get their populations working the land plots by a significant factor.

    • Removed the first attempts to build improvements on unworked bonuses by automated workers

    • Enhanced AI valuation of siege in city attack stacks (and added a global variable to give us an opportunity to enhance it even further or reduce if needbe. Siege is the most important thing to get balanced right in city attack stacks.)

    • Some bug fixes throughout the AI_Assault routines

    • Major bugfix review of AI promotion evaluations in CvPlayerAI::AI_promotionValue and unitcombat evaluations in CvPlayerAI::AIunitcombatValue.

    • Extensive adjustments to Ranged Assault AI

    • Thanks to a triggered Assert we caught an integer overload scenario in the AI unit evaluations.

    • Fixed a bug in Ranged Assault AI.

    • Makes all promotions that don't generate a negative valuation for AI selection processes gain a default minimum value.



    Other DLL fixes and tweaks
    • Numerous OOS fixes.

    • Fix for errors in Power and Asset calculations

    • A hearty attempt to find and fix all messages that may betray the nationality of a hidden nationality unit (Apparently some still remain in the python at least.)

    • Made an adjustment for the health bar size while on size matters so that will adjust it's size point of reference as eras advance.

    • Quick debug to building based free promos

    • Resolved a number of bugs and slowdowns in the new improvement upgrade mechanism.

    • Cache problem fix

    • Fixed a problem with negative free specialists totals

    • Fixed XP from specialists to work correctly with or without option.

    • Made it possible for human players to group units that are on transports provided they are grouped among the same transport and fixed a few unnecessary asserts this caused but otherwise seems bug-free under all tests.

    • Added OnGameOptions and NotOnGameOptions tags to EventTriggerInfos (will be applying them to events that are problematic on Size Matters over the course of the week.)

    • Cleaned up the XML regarding the now defunct iSMCargo tag.

    • Bugfix for Ranged Assault accuracy inaccuracy.

    • A fix to a unit where a unitcombat definition was used in the wrong tag brackets

    • Fixes a divide by 0 error.

    • Generated a current dll for 35 civs. Will keep this updated until the release, at which point it may be made the 'core' dll for the release by taking out the '.35civs' out of it's file name and renaming the current dll to '.50civs' and leaving it in the release for those who wish to be able to continue current games.



    Misc
    • Updated all unit schemas

    • Reported some requested tags to python

    • Placed all core promotion name text references in one file

    • Placed all core promotionline text references in one file

    • Placed all UnitCombat text references in one file

    • Merged my module into the core

    • World Bank function adjustment to pull that super wonder back into the world of balanceable reasonability. All according to discussions in the What's left to be fixed thread.

    • Updated Changelog for v35 ;) (After all this, compiling the changelog was extremely time consuming!)

    Updates my change log.

    By definition there always has to be one if you have done work in more than one cycle.
