An explanation of this classic mod and download link can be found here:

(Chiyu's own words: ) Welcome to the official thread for the core version of the Extra mod. Extra is a mod that that combines a lot of material from various official Firaxis mods (including Civ4 - Colonization) into one, big playable package. The majority of the content comes from the following mods: Warlords' Chinese Unification, Warlords' Peleponessian War, Warlords' Alexander the Great, BtS' Charlemagne's Wars, BtS' Next War, BtS' Final Frontier, BtS' Road to War and of course Colonization.

I was very selective in the process of adding things, for a number of reasons. First of all, I didn't want to unbalance anything. Secondly, I want players to have the feeling that they are playing 'old-fashioned' Civ4, so I left out anything that - in my opinion - didn't suit the main game's theme. I tried to make as little adjustments as possible, only when I thought it was really necessary for realism/balance reasons.

Newest version: 3.19h: April 5th, 2011

https://www.mediafire.com/file/n5zfby5e6m2dull/Extra3.19h.rar/file

Contents (version 3.19d)

All these features were first by type, and then by their date of being added. All religious units and buildings are not mentioned separately, but of course the new religions do have them. Red items are added through the Nostalgia add-on, blue items through the Lords add-on. Green items were introduced in my 'reworked future era' project.

Please note that even though almost all of these features were originally found in an official Firaxis mod, the effects have been modified in certain situations. These changes are not included in this list of contents, since they would make the list look very messy - check the version history for more information.

Also, note that for the new civilizations and resources, I had to rely on "external" material from this site to complete them. The same applies for most leaderheads of the new leaders.

Credits & Acknowledgments

In the first place, credits go to Porges, Geomodder and Avain because I incorporated their modcomps in my mod. Secondly, credits go to to Amra, ripple01 and tsentom for their mods (respectively Amra Advanced, CivFusion and Thomas' War), because those were the mods I mostly turned to when I needed leaders/buildings/units for the new civilizations. Thirdly, credits go to all the amazing artists here on CivFanatics (too many to mention them all) who made the unit and structure models and leaderheads which I gladly used in my mod. I also want to thank all the players of this mod for all the feedback and appreciation they've shown through the years. And finally, I want to thank Sid Meier and Firaxis for their games and their mods, because without those, this mod wouldn't even exist in the first place ;).
