    Features
    New or changed features compared to Rise of Mankind: A New Dawn:

    Completely reworked civic system
    It will act sort of like a tree, the higher categories limiting the lower ones:
    • Government (Anarchy, Autocracy, Oligarchy and Democracy)
      • State (Chiefdom, City-State, Monarchy, Empire, Republic, Colonial and Federation)
        • Rule (Patriarchy, Despotism, Theocracy, Warlords, etc)
          • Society
          • Labor
          • Economy
          • Military
          • Religion
          • Welfare
          • Media
          • Foreign Policy
          • Immigration
          • Stance
    Of course there are some other incompatibilities (like Liberal vs Intolerant, Theocracy vs Atheist, etc).
    The main idea is, that that your government choice limits your other choices.
    Civics are designed to "do a certain thing".

    You will also see new, beautiful round civic buttons (mostly from Civ5) that are easy to recognize in the tech tree too.


    Hunting
    ...greatly expanded by adding many animals from C2C (but not all!).
    A new Hunter unit replacing Scout (all recon units are pushed later in the tech tree).
    A new Great Hunter great person that you can gain by hunting animals.

    Myths
    Now they work more like religions. You no longer build Myths but they appear in the fitting areas when requirements are met. There are also new Myths (Dessert and Winter). They also provide special bonuses.

    Traits
    I tried to balance Traits and make all of them interesting. Now each Trait will have it's own building (or unit).

    New resources:
    • Prime Timber: worked by Woodcutter, Lumber mill and so on
    • Papyrus: worked by Plantation. Requirement for Scroll Maker building that provides an early access to Paper resource.
    • Holy Site: provides :commerce: bonus with Cathedrals when in city vicinity. Worked by Cottage line.
    • Tourist Site: provides :commerce: bonus with Tavern/Hotel/Vacation Resort when in city vicinity. Worked by Cottage line.
    • and more...
    New improvements, terrain features and route:
    • Kelp (Coast) : You can build Fishing Boats on it just like on seafood tiles.
    • Rocky Islets (Coast) and Islets (Ocean): You can build a new improvement line on these
      • Fishing Community, Fishing Village and Fishing Town: they work like the Cottage line, only on water. When building one of these by a Workboat you also get a new route on the tile:
      • Ferry: works the same way as Tunnels but earlier and is more limited
    • Bamboo (Grass, Plain, Marsh): +1:hammers: on the tile
    Storms are also changed: Now they can appear on land tiles and provide fresh water. So be quick and build a Farm next to it ;)

    Tech quotes:
    130+ new tech quotes with audio files. Now it's only around 30 techs that has no audio quotes.
    Most quotes are from PAE (thank you Pie), Civ5, SMAC and some are from movies or audiobooks.

    Scientific victory reworked:
    It's mainly a cosmetic change. The esoteric Ascension Gate is replaced by Time Tunnel. Its requirements are: Computer Center and Fusion Plant in any of your cities and a Quantum Lab in the building city.

    Guilds reworked:
    They no longer work like corporations but require Guilds civic (it makes sense, isn't it?). Each guild building employs 1 citizen and provides yield, commerce or other bonus.

    Tourism:
    Tourism is a new feature in CoM 1.0.3.
    There are 10 levels of tourism represented by auto-built buildings. Each level is capable of generating more :commerce: based on the number of connected domestic and foreign cities. Each level requires 1 level higher culture level and 1 more trade routes than the previous level. Now it is worth increasing the culture level of not only border cities but even core cities deep inside your empire.

    Difficulty Scaling with Empire Size:
    New feature in version 1.1.
    The bigger your empire gets, the harder it is to manage. Now not only the maintenance increases but other aspects also change to prevent snowballing over smaller civs and keep the game challenging. Great People Rate, Great General Rate, Golden Age Length and Culture all decrease by 1% per Cities. Anarchy Length, War Weariness and Hurry Production Cost all increase by 1% per City.

    Known issues
    • You CANNOT change terrain settings using the Launcher. You can change terrain manually:
      • go to Assets folder
      • delete terrain_textures_XXX.fpk
      • open terrain_textures_YYY.tar.xz with an archiver (WinRAR for example) and copy the terrain_textures_YYY.fpk to Assets folder
    • Closing the Launcher results in an error massage in many cases (it is safe to ignore, though annoying)

    F.A.Q.
    • Q: Does the AND Mega Pack work as intended with Chronicles of Mankind?
    • A: Yes, it does. More music is also compatible.
    • Q: Will future AND2 changes also be implemented in this modmod?
    • A: Yes, that's the plan. I will keep this modmod updated to AND via pathces. Bugs will also be fixed in patches and new features will be added too.
    • Q: Movement Limit option doesn't seem to work.
    • A: It's buggy and reported. It's a feature in the dll introduced by 45. There is a workaround for it: Just delete the .ini file in your \Documents\My Games\Beyond the Sword folder.

    As I was looking through the Civilopedia I noticed that Imperialistic's building, Victory Monument, didn't seem to be in the game.
    And the Explorer trait looks really lacking, shouldn't it have Seafaring's perks as well?

    You're right. For some reason I have tagged that building out, though it is in CIV4BuildingInfos. See BUILDINGCLASS_TRIUMPHAL_ARCH if you want to add it back manually.

    Seafaring is completely reworked/replaced. I believe that free Speed and Sentry for recon and naval units offer more than the previous solution. Seafaring was really useless, especially when the civ is in land. But land and sea exploration is always useful.


    ...but I admit that I was in a haste with the upload. It is obvious that beta testing and patches will be needed. So please, continue reporting bugs and other issues you find. Thank you :)

    I do believe you should stick on the old bonuses of Seafaring onto Explorer and it would be fine then, although even then not as powerful as the new Philosophical and Scientific. Their buildings are really sexy, too sexy.
    And wouldn't it make more sense for Aggressive's building to reduce maintenance, not increase it? 2 :) for +25% maintenance seems like a bad deal.

    You should make a thread about the release of this mod on the main forum in order to gain more attention. AND's development has really stagnated lately so I'm sure the exposure would be appreciated.

    I tried removing the lines but after doing so launching the game causes XML errors.

    More bugs, regarding starting civics: Government is Chiefdom (State's starting civic); Anarchy is supposed to be starting civic but it's not chosen nor is it possible to use because of Oligarchy, Rule is on Oligarchy (supposed to be Patriarchy) and Welfare's is Survival (Stance's starting civic), supposed to be Charity.
    Edit: I now know that this is only present on the Earth scenarios. Could you update the initial civics for those in your next update?

    I never cared for scenarios therefor have not encountered this bug but will fix it. THX
    May
    Maybe I should decrease their bonus?
    Than something else is missing...

    I wanted it to be a trade-off: Either you are at war and gain the extra :) but lose money so you have to pillage and plunder more; or at peace and lose the extra :) But I think I can decrease it to +10% maintenance and maybe tweak som other things too.

    Thank you for your efforts. Its a nice mod. Are future AND2 changes also will be implemented in this modmod? Or now it's completely independent work, so Chronicles and AND2 go their own ways?

    Yes, that's the plan. I will keep this modmod updated to AND via pathces.
    Bugs will also be fixed in patches and new features will be added too. Right now I'm rather busy IRL but want to fix serious bugs ASAP.

    I'm coding only XML. Python and dll changes will be copied from tha main mod.
