    Same for me, only xml coding, which is easy if you know where to find what you need.
    Your plan sounds good, I just afraid that my Russian translation will not work anymore with your changes. And I'm lazy to read English :), but mod deserve this, so I should.

    I doubt that Russain translation is complete in the mod. My modmod does not add so much new pedia detailed texts. And because I am also lazy ( :) ) I've been using only short explanations.

    Oh man I have to try this :) Last time I played it was over a year ago or so :crazyeye: (enjoyed it incredibly)

    Does standalone mean that you can download it independently from AND and it runs, or 1) download AND 2) download this 3) play ? :D

    Well... I think standalone means that it's a... errr... standalone :crazyeye:
    So, no you don't need AND2. You install it separately. You can have both mods installed or only either this or that.

    I was thinking of renaming Bandit (trait unit) to something like Rouge or Thief to avoid connfusion with Bantits civic. What do you think?
    I also found the reason why Bandits could not enter boats: It waas because of the hidden nationality. That will be removed too in the upcomming patch.

    ZN, thank you for your mod. I tried it, but -500% penalty from distance of the palace killed my economy in few turns. Strikes, units disbands and total annihilation. :crazyeye:
    I will reduce this value, and also will check other civics, then it will be possible to play.

    Are you reffering to City-State? That civic is designed for small civs. If you want to expand you have to beeline for Monarchy.
    But I have plans to change it: change :mad: per cities above city limit to a solid limit of cities.
    Maybe I will also move Monarchy down the tech tree into the ancient era so it's available earlier.

    BTW: What are your experiences with other AI civic choices? My autoplay tests showed me that the AI favored Maritme and Pastoral civics above Slavery and Agrarian too much. And IIRC Caste was liked too much too.

    I decided to create my own version of this game, with adjustments that I like. But of course a lot of content will be moved from your modmod. So, thank you!

    Nice work. What I would add is early caravan unit (model from colonization) and more early buildings from animals. In my version I have Legends from all animals, Milk farm to early health bonus, Working animals for caravan units production until diesel fraight.
    Also I do not like that water units make on the knee without any yard. I added prerequisite for all water units corresponding boatyards or shipyards, etc.

    THX.
    Had some work with it though my time is rather limited these days.

    I'm rather thinking of some "Gathering" mechanism.

    That's too C2C to my taste.

    I didn't add your early technologies, so gathering is not properly fit to my version, but it will be interesting to look. However with more animals and more buildings from them game became more dinamic and diverse.

    Gathering not because of a tech, not even because of a civic with the same name but because it fits to the early game: Hunting and gathering.
    I want the early game to be longer but not by adding so many techs that it takes longer to research through it. Instead by having more things to do, more micro manegament.

    Ok, nice idea. I do not have so many time to play, so I'm fine with current tech number. Now I am working on adding size requirements to buildings, to avoid situation when space center could be build in just founded city. More massive and sophisticated buildings should be allowed only in correspondingly big cities.

    I also think I will cut Gathering as a tech. It looks strange to start with Gathering civic but you may start without Gathering tech...
