Hey all,

So I've finally finished the complete changelog for the CP and CBP. I'm sure that I've missed a few parts here and there, but it is largely complete and detailed. I've pasted it below (it'll probably take two or three posts to get it all, eventually!). These notes include changes in the upcoming version of the mod. If you see anything out of place, or I've missed anything, let me know!

Cheers,
G

Changes in v. 11 of the CBP / v. 65 of the CP

Community Patch:
AI
- AI logic regarding Deals made variable - value and demand for resources based on supply, proximity of player, relative strength and happiness.
- AI trained to better engage in naval warfare - more likely to land an army on the shore before attacking (as opposed to a pure naval operation). Will send more boats, and will be more likely to simply engage in a naval bombard before using land troops.
- AI prioritizes protecting embarked troops, avoiding unnecessary embarkation, and staying out of ranged fire if possible.
- AI less likely to send units alone to assault a city.
- AI now prioritizes targeting units that are dug-in, so as to force them to retreat or destroy them.
- AI more aggressive towards human players (based on difficulty).
- AI randomness regarding movement and tactical decisions reduced
- AI settler placement, including turn 0 settling, optimized to focus on strategic locations rather than purely resource-based locations.
- AI military targeting considers pathfinding as well as mobility around a target when evaluating how difficult a city is to capture.
- AI warmonger values dynamic, based on more than just conquest - religion, ideology, past history, WC decisions, and co-op wars all play a part in how much warmonger is earned from aggression.
- WC logic reevaluated to make the AI more likely to form coalitions of similar interests and to push through beneficial resolutions.
- Tactical AI optimized to encourage moving-shooting and proper positioning for ranged units.
- AI targeting and positioning for melee units optimized.
- AI trained to spend gold on units and buildings it desires.
- More nuanced diplomacy with regards to warmonger and other values.
- AI more attuned to victory conditions and proper use of Great People.
- AI flavors for leader personalities optimized based on CEP's changes.
- AI army and navy size/composition optimized.
- AI missionary and prophet logic optimized to reduce spam.
- AI trained to effectively understand and use all new gameplay systems added by the Community Patch.
- AI has multiple 'tourism defeat' announcements based on era. No more 'blue jeans' in the Classical period!

DLL
- Unified Yields integrated (all existing secondary and primary yield tables can use any yield type, where logical to do so)
- Integrated code base for Whoward's DLL, CSD's DLL, and Civ IV DF's DLL changes. Hundreds of bugfixes and changes (most identified on the respective pages for these mods)
- Over 40 new functions, and over 50 new secondary tables, all of which add new abilities and actions to buildings, policies, units, and more.
- Additional yields, (YIELD_GOLDEN_AGE, etc.) added to allow buildings, policies, and more to add different types of values.
- DLL changes optimized to limit performance impact.

LUA
- Dozens of new LUA hooks for non-dll functionality (primarily of interest to modders. List to be outlined soon.
- Custom lua for new happiness system (see below), as well as Custom LUA for Culture Overview screen (courtesy KyteM)
- LUA added for most new yields - limited integration of LUA for all unified yields tables (to-do)

Happiness
Happiness System completely revised. See below.

Luxuries: Luxuries now grant their bonuses as a factor of total empire population. The higher your pop, the more happiness your luxuries provide. This makes luxuries less vital early on, as +1/+2 isn't as big of a deal, yet it does not punish tall or wide strategies because the focus is on overall population, not # of cities.

National Happiness: Rather than having a flat penalty at -1 unhappiness and below, unhappiness penalties scale with each point of unhappiness below zero, up to a certain maximum threshold. This scale affects all yields, though in varying amounts. This makes expansion/unhappiness less binary, and allows players to be slightly unhappy without catastrophic problems.

City Happiness: The big one. City happiness is now no longer affected directly by the # of citizens in a city. Instead, happiness is based on a set of functions that look at the variables below. Overall, population is still king, however per-city unhappiness is a bit easier to manage (and tailor to certain playstyles), whereas the penalty per # of cities is dramatically reduced. This makes Tall and Wide gameplay equally feasible, so long as your empire is well-managed.

The yield-based functions combine your city's yields, dividing this value by your city's population. This value is then compared to the rate value per citizen as a global average of all city yields per pop. If the rate value per citizen is higher than your city's yields (i.e. you are not producing as much as the rate value expects), the difference between the two is multiplied by the per-citizen unhappiness value and the unhappiness is generated. In other words, if your cities are significantly behind other global cities in yields per pop, the difference will be converted into unhappiness.

Keep in mind that, since the unhappiness per citizen element of the game was removed, you are almost always going to have one or more of the following 'problems' in your cities. This is necessary in order to keep happiness from skyrocketing up to 100+, and is fairly realistic. No city is perfect, so don't fret if you have poverty or illiteracy in your cities.

Poverty: This looks at a city's food and gold yields. If these yields do not exceed the rate criteria, your city has some element of poverty. This is largely inevitable in all but the wealthiest cities or most fertile cities.

Illiteracy: This looks at a city's culture and science yields. If these yields do not exceed the rate criteria, your city has some element of illiteracy. This is largely inevitable in all but the smartest or most wonder-heavy cities.

Religious tension: This looks at a city's majority religion, and compares it to the number of citizens that are not part of that religion. If that value exceeds the rate value of the function, you will have some religious strife (note: as I stated earlier, this does not mean that religious minorities = unhappiness, but rather that a mix of religions in a city runs a higher risk of creating religious unrest. That's all. Seriously.). This is largely inevitable in most large cities, but should never be a major source of unhappiness. This value also decreases gradually as the game progresses. You can reduce this value further by building more faith-producing buildings in the city (high faith production has the ability to subtract from a city's minority population), or simply converting people to your one, true faith.

City connections (Isolation): This is simple. Blockades or a lack of a city connection will generate unhappiness based on a rate per citizen value. Should only be a problem if you are besieged from the sea, your routes are pillaged and/or you haven't connected your cities together.

Pillaged tiles: Similar to city connections, this function will generate unhappiness based on a rate per citizen value which looks at the number of pillaged tiles. The more pillaged tiles there are, the higher this unhappiness. No one likes looking at burning fields.

Starvation: This one can be fatal, so be careful. If a city is starving, this function looks at the value of that starvation (i.e. the negative value of food being consumed) and compares that to the rate value of the function. Don't starve people.

Disorder: This function looks at your cities defensive capabilities and your city's garrison. Taking defense as a 'yield' (i.e. the defense produced by defensive structures) and increasing it by a factor of your city's garrison), this value is then divided by your population. If lower than the expected rate per citizen, the difference is multiplied by the unhappiness per citizen rate.

Specialists also generate unhappiness (1 point per 2 specialists in a city).

Improvements
Coming soon!
 
While I am impressed by what you've managed to do I still feel somewhat annoyed that most of what was mentioned in the leader balance threads was ignored :D

Anyways good work.
 
Wow, it looks like a *lot* has happened whilst I have been away from Civ5!!! (Doom3 & Elite II: Frontier caught my attention for a while ;-). Will definitely have to give this a whirl. Is the mod available on Steam?

Also, in relation to the Universal Health-care tenet. Would you ever consider-instead of free hospitals-some additional bonus to hospitals other than the food it grants (like bonus happiness or culture? Or possibly even tourism?)

For my part, I would have liked to have seen Universal Health-care kept for all 3 Ideologies, but with its effects being different for each Ideology. That said, you have definitely made this tenet more interesting-& relevant-than it was :).

Aussie.
 
Please indicate which changes are part of the "core" patch, i.e. effective when one does load CP, but not CBP. I assume that all AI changes are part of the core, but how about the fix to the "declaring war on a minor civ" exploit?

Anyways good work.

Not ignored, I'm just doing as much as I can without custom functions before I start working on those specifics for leaders. You'll notice that only two leaders have new abilities- those were already coded.

That said, it would be helpful if you would create a new thread that lists all the changes you've envisioned for leaders.

Aussie.

The changes to ideologies were simply to get rid of the happiness policies - we'll have to work on ideologies a lot more in the future. I'm open to any ideas.

Great list, I really like how late game settlers gets better. I really miss civ 4 with explorers getting better now that I think about it. Anywho can't wait for the next patch.
 
That said, it would be helpful if you would create a new thread that lists all the changes you've envisioned for leaders.

The original idea was to update the original post in every specific leader thread, but there haven't really been enough discussion in them.

It wasn't my intention to sound rude, it was early and I was late for morningclasses but it is kinda upsetting when I try to get a discussion going and you just do your own thing :D

I'm not sure you understand - I haven't been around to have a discussion, as I've been out of the country. This was my first week back, and I've been busy patching things up. Also, your statement regarding I 'not having read through your ideas' is simply untrue - many of the changes as implemented for leaders borrow from the ideas in the changes subforum. I've spent a lot of time in the DLL and tweaking Civ, and I know what it easy to implement and what the AI can or cannot handle - I take these things into account when considering the ideas thrown around, and I implement things based on that. I may not always run every idea by the community - I guess that's the one flaw of having a self-appointed 'Lord of the Community Patch.' :)

That said, a list of leader changes (taking into consideration the changes listed above) would expedite my function-writing greatly. Speed is, as always, my primary focus, especially since I'm largely a one-man xml/sql/dll team at this point.

Cheers,

Holy crap some work was done here. I haven't tried it yet but man am I looking forward to it.

And I don't know how much work it is or the like but the only things that I miss (Compared to CEP.) are the Stories and having plantations on jungle tiles. Other than that, everything looks great.

I think we'll officially replace the stories of CEP with the system created by sukritact:



This system is far more modular (meaning other people can design the events easily), and far more 'lean' in terms of code.

Oh *snap*, Gazebo. I just saw this mod today, & was about to ask if you planned to include it! :)

Great minds think alike I guess.

Exiting news. Which mod is this?

I've tried it, it's good. When you make it work with CPP are you going to use sukritact's Decisions screen/menu or are you going to use CEP's menu for the choices?
