The new update WILL break all saves made prior to the 1.2 crime update! So if you want to play a save made on 1.1.1 or older you will need to either stick with those versions or start a new save.

It's also recommended to perform a clean installation of the new Chronicles of Mankind update. So in other words, delete the old COM mod folder and then install 1.2.

In a constant brainstorm...
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 Increasing with Empire Size:
New feature in version 1.1.
The bigger your empire gets, the harder it is to manage. Now not only maintenance costs increase 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.
Maintenance Cost in All Cities, Maintenance Cost from Distance to Palace, Maintenance Cost from Number of Cities, Anarchy Length, War Weariness and Hurry Production Cost all increase by 1% per City.

Religions Reborn
New feature in Patch 1.1.1
Religions are divided into Prophetic and Traditional religions.
Prophetic religions are: Buddhism, Christianity, Confucionism, Islam, Judaism, Taoism and Zoroastrianism
Traditional religions are: Asatru, Hellenism, Hinduism, Kemetism, Naghualism and Shinto
Religions are now founded not as civilizations progress on the tech tree. Instead, Prophetic religions can be founded by Great Prophets, while Traditional ones with certain geographical properties (e.g. Kemetism requires river access and desert in city vicinity = Nile)
Many new buildings, wonders and units for religions.
Also, Atheist civic can close temples.

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)
  • Aggressive and Ruthless AI options are known to hurt the AI more than helping it.
  • There some other options (Great Commanders, Surround and Destroy) that the AI doesn't understand and should be avoided for a better experience.

F.A.Q.
  • Q: Do I need Rise of Mankind: A New Dawn too?
  • A: No, now it's a stand-alone version. You can have both mods installed separatelly.
  • Q: Does the AND Mega Pack work as intended with Chronicles of Mankind?
  • A: Well, sort of. More recent changes of the mod make it more and more different from AND2. E.g. with CoM1.2 MegaPack will throw many harmless but annoying error massages.
    • More music on the other hand is fully 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. No, at least not likely, for two reasons: 1) AND2's development has essentially stopped. 2) Since version 1.2 we are using a new dll, thanks to @Inthegrave.
  • 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.
  • Q: Some tiles are pink. Graphics seem to be missing.
  • A: Try this fix: CoM Fix Purple terrain and bug init error.7z
  • Q: Is and2_checker.exe fully functional?
  • A: No, some features are not working. E.g. "Fix Installation - Check files again" and "Fix Installation - Reset mod to default state" were designed to work with AND2 SVN (unfortunately I cannot remove these options). It is safe to use the launcher to turn modules ON/OFF easily and to start the mod.

Instalation
  1. Download Archive and Patch from HERE
  2. Go to your Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods folder
  3. Extract the archive first, than the patch and say 'Yes' to overwrite.
  4. If you have a Steam version change it to 'Beta version' - which is the original Civ4 BtS CD version.
  5. And... Run the game :king:

Todos, plans, goals and dreams

Legacies
Read more about it here: [CoM Module] Legacies
Its planning phase is mostly done, though I decided to use civics to represent Legacies rather than dummy buildings.
It needs the actual xml coding. That's easy. Some python coding would be also good, to have separate windows for Civics and Legacies. And some dll work would be useful also, to prevent some bad choices for the AI. E.g. one cannot choose sea related legacies, if he has no coastal cities.
Super Civs
I want to add 3 more unique components to each civ. Two of them would be UU and/or UB but the 3rd one would be a Unique Ability in the form of unique civics modcomp. The UA won't replace any existing civic in any category but would be a separate thing. Would be a game option.

Reintroduce the 100 civs dll
Now that I have learned the very basics of dll compiling I can maintain 2 dll-s that the players can choose from.

More civs from MegaPack
For the sake of variety. Also, no point of a 100 civs dll without 100 civs.

Expand the future:
  • Grav-Ships: I want to add more sci-fi units to the trans-human era, including floating ships in the sky. They would be an alternate upgrade line to the present naval units (the other option is the fusion ships staying on water).​
  • Aliens: I want to add a civ that appears in the late part of the game. Adding the units and so on are not a big thing but have to make sure that aliens won't appear due to revolutions, colonies or evolve from barbarian cities. Would be optional.​
  • Killer planet: If you know the Tiberian universe then you can guess it. A meteorite crashes to the ground and a strange cristal starts spreading across the globe. It has great economic potential but is also very deadly. Late game. Optional.​

More resources and corporations:
I want to add more resources as a means of driving force of trade and expansion. It is quite common that by the renaissance era you have access to each (or most) possible resources and no longer need to trade them with others or start wars for them.
Why more corporations? They are fun. Vanilla BtS has 34 civs and 7 corporations and that was fine but CoM is much bigger (more civs in play at a time and bigger maps).

Events: I have started updating the event images with nicer, more artistic ones. I also update some of the events in the meanwhile. About 50% complete.

Art Styles update: @Sword_Of_Geddon has kindly offered to help with that (=he offered to do it).

Update LH graphics: Some of the leaders could use some better graphics.


This is not an order of importance, just the order things came to my mind :)
I will keep updating this post as I remember more ideas, complete some or change my mind.

Does the Mega Pack work as intended with Chronicles of Mankind?

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?

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.

Or now it's completely independent work, so Chronicles and AND2 go their own ways?
I'm coding only XML. Python and dll changes will be copied from tha main mod.
