    Well, I'm game. Do you have any suggestions for a new name? Unless you think it'd still be a problem, I'd suggest that the new name still have the word "Realism" in it, like "Realism Redux" or "Realism Revisited" or "Realism II: Resurrection". :)

    There are some great ideas in this thread that I'd like to see implemented, like revamping the tech tree, but I'm afraid that with all the very ambitious ideas, it's no longer just a one person job. Meanwhile, I'm working to put the current code base into a shape that I feel I can work with.

    The first major change I'm going to make is to incorporate several of the existing minor mods, such as I've indicated in my earlier post. When that's done, I'll post an update.

    I think Realism Resurrected would be a better idea, unless we want people thinking this is some kind of Christian mod. ;)

    No, I wouldn't want to give that impression. It was just a play on the title of that dreadful movie "Alien:Resurrection".

    Previously, without the Realism mod, I've combined SD's UnitXP and Culture Conquest, Terraform, Real Fort, Lost Wonders and Lost Units, Cultural Decay, the Barbarians mod, and two or three interface mods. I'm certainly open to adding others, provided the level of effort is not enormous. Give me a couple of days, and I will have a very, very raw alpha release, with the above mentioned mods included, available for testing.

    I have a few ideas for what they are worth. I don't know how easy or hard they would be to add. But what the heck, I guess I'll just throw them out there.

    1: One thing the has always bothered me was, lets call them, organic resources. Like wheat or horses. I always hated that I could lose the ability to create horsemen because some unit destroyed my pasture. I think it would make more sence that once you have horses that you could add say a ranch as a tile improvement. And as for things like corn or wheat they should have an overall effect on all of your civs farm output not just the tile that you discovered it in.

    2: I don't think you could overstate the effect that animal domestication has had on human civilization. They effect everything from taking over labor intensive jobs to increasing overland commerce to the simple enjoyment of a pet. Those civs that use it properly thrive and those who don't, well don't.

    3: I would also like to bring up the concept of breeding. Altering plants and animals through breeding and later genetic engineering has greatly increased their use. From dogs bread for certain tasks to plants that give greater yeilds.

    I don't know how any of this could be added to the game, but there it is.

    ps. sorry about the spelling. not my strong suit.:p

    Only MOD I would NOT want included is the Random Events ... While its made nicely etc,, IMHO it just doesn't blend in with the rest of the game..:rolleyes:


    OneI would love included in the Ancient Music mod.. it really added more atmosphere to the game's barren music start...

    hm. I think, it should NOT contain any grafik or musik mod - because user should be able to choose self, what for grafik or musik he wants to see. Normally, it will be no conflicts with a mod, and you can simple add the grafik mod to CustomAssets folder.

    (i use newcommerce&newgold icon, roads_light, some of Rhye's flags, and plotlistenhancements mod).

    I had a couple of ideas...
    • fortified machine gunners damage units in adjacent squares that are trying to bypass the unit
    • fortified cannons/artillery in cities with a castle can attack ships at sea
    • taking cities give you a small chance at gaining a technology, depending on the size/importance of the city
    • razing cities lets you take slaves if you have the Slavery civic, and gold is plundered from the city when you raze it (in any civic)
    • pillaging a land square lowers the culture of the square, depending on the distance from the nearest city. This can be restored by improving the square with a worker.

    as a navy man i reckon this aspect of the game needs some improvement.

    1)wooden battleships, HMS Victory style, these constitute the biggest and romantic period of naval history
    2)carrier based aircraft that can destory other units, especialy naval units. the carrier is the ship of the line in todays nuclear navys, making the battleship obsolete
    3)modern frigates, employed in an anti-submarine/anti-surface warfare role
    4)modern destroyers employed in an air-defence role
    5)mine layers/sweepers
    6) sub laumched missiles/ missile subs
    7)the ability to set up patrol routes for ships/subs, making it easier to defend ones coastlines
    8)blockading of enemy ports

    plus battles at sea should occure at range, more modern ships having a greater combat range. ww2 sea battles occured when combattents could hardly see each other over the horizon, b4 that it wasnt that much closer.

    this would add a huge tactical element to naval warfare, and the game could not suffer as a result

    Well, I have put together a new base to work with. It starts with the last release of Realism from Jaynus, some small changes and tweaks to work with v1.52, and then the addition of SD-UnitXP, SD-CultureConquest, Terraform, Real Forts, Lost Wonders, Lost Units, Cultural Decay and a partial adoption of the Barbarian mod, which means barbs can have some pretty sophisticated cities, as well as spawn more often. I've also included Proper Score Graph and Special Domestic Advisor. Additionally, I've greatly reduced the amount of desert, at least in what I think is the standard terrain generator.

    Play with it and let me know what I've screwed up. I'm sure several things have disintegrated as I integrated the different mods. What I'd like is to make this relatively stable, and then we can go on and add new stuff.


    Code:
     
    v0.61
    	- Desert drastically reduced
    	- Increased barbarian (and animal) frequencies, allowed the barbs to build whatever they want, increased MAX_XP from barbs and animals
    	- Emancipation upkeep is now NONE (was LOW)
    	- Free Speech upkeep is now NONE (was LOW)
    	- Slavery upkeep is now LOW (was NONE)
    	- No City Razing defaulted to false.
    	- Reset reveal of uranium to physics
    	- Cottage now buildable with Pottery, as it is in vanilla Civ4.
    	- Winery now build with Priesthood
    	- Castle is buildable with Monarchy now, not Engineering
    	- +2 health with recycling center
    	- supermarket now costs + 1/3
    	- supermarket +25% food
    	- added Lost Units v1.x
    	- added Lost Wonders v1.00
    	- added SD-UnitXP v1.00
    	- added SD-CultureConquest v1.30
    	- added Terraform
    	- added Special Domestic Advisor v0.92
    	- added Cultural Decay v0.2
    	- added homegrown's clock mod
    	- added Proper Score Graph v1.7
    	- added Real Fort v0.4
    
    v0.6
    - Thanks dearmad for some more changes
    	- Universal Suffrage now gives +25% War Weariness
    	- pacifism now gives +125% great person rate
    	- organized realigion now gives +20% culture
    	- Theocracy now gives +10% Unit speed build.
    	- Caste system now gives +1 free specialist
    	- Cannon now requires gunpowder (not steel)
    	- Dry Docks with engineering (not steel)
    - Maceman (and samauri) now avialable with fuedilism + metal casting (not machinery)
    - Knights (and camelarcher and consquistidor) now avialable with civil service (not guilds)
    - Pikeman now at civil service
    - Removed riflemans (and redcoats) +25% vs. cavalry bonus (a bonus against a moving target, wtf?!)
    - Rifleman now has 16 combat strength
    - Redcoat now has 17 combat strength
    - Redcoat got +1 moves (they were extremely discaplined, and better marching skills seems appropriate)
    
    - All gun units below rifleman got +50% vs melee
    - All Gun units rifleman and higher got +150% vs melee
    - All tank units got +250% vs. melee & + 250% vs mounted
    
    - Musketman (and musketeer) got +30% defense vs. knights (knights killing musketman every first try is just stupid)
    
    - Castle cost reduced to 80 ( was 100)
    - Forge cost reduced to 100 (was 120)
    
    - No City Razing defaulted to true. I dont like this option. You should be forced to deal with a capture.

    I am glad to see someone picking up where it was left off. I know that the goal here is to find bugs and that sort of thing, before adding any new material, but I wanted to put an early note in asking the about the possibility of these to be included:

    Snaitf's Unit Allegiance Mod

    and:

    FreeTechMod


    Of course I dont expect them to be in too soon, just wanted to give an idea of what I think would be a good addition.

    Hi KGrevstad,

    Its a really good thing, that someone reanimate this mod;))))

    I also have ideas, regarding the gameplay, and I think there are 3 main fields, which need to improve.

    1. (It is the easyest) The modern era is too quick if U allow space victory, its only a rush. Of course U can set it off, but than what it is for anyway? When I last time won with this victory, i had not even an airplane, or a moder unit. I just produced some spyes (not too many) and I could easily sabotage others effort to build spaceship.
    The solution is to increase the cost(hammers) of the spaceship parts.
    An other good idea was in the previous Civs, that U could start the space mission with a less well built spaceship, but of course with less chance of success. And while it took some time to reach Alpha Centauri, it gave time for a nice endgame stage, which aimed to increase score basicaly.

    2. Instead of tastless "Future techs" we need real, presently existing technologies, which allow us presently existing units, as well: cruising missiles, intelligent weapons, laser AA turrets, airborne laser ICBM system, electronized hi-tec infantry, MLRS artillery, EMP weapons (its like a small nuke with no radiation!) etc. They could allow for a less well built civ a second or a third chance to win, and to greatly extend the gemeplay and time.
    To introduce the nuclear reactor technology is a good thing, but its only the firs step;)))

    3. I dont like civic system. It dosent reflect social progress, it dosen'r reflect history, it dosen't reflect anything. There are some well known "nameplates" such as universal suffrage, and with unpredictable effects. Now it is only for to ballance the leaders.
    I think we need a more complex, more realistic but in the same way more simple society system. Religion or economy civic should cause religious or economy effects only. Of course the society is a complex thing, but then what it is for to separate this sides, if then they couse mixed and unpredictable effects?

    I've ideas for these things, if U really concerned to build them into the mod I can send U detailes.

    I've just tried it out running 1.52. Awesome work, btw. might I suggest to include in it the "lots of promotions" mod? (can't remember the name)

    however, here's a clear bug: rocketry and nuclear reactor technologies are available for research from the very start. it seems they have no prerequisites or something. keep up the good work! :goodjob:
