    It's a .rar file.
    Did you try to un-rar it?
    You will need a freely available unzip/unrar program.

    From free programs it is possible to use 7-zip. This program is able to unpack rar-archives.

    I'm sorry it doesn't work right away for you...
    It works. Don't worry, I check all files before uploading so it works.

    What you should do is unrar the file, but then transfer the Theo .biq file to the conquest folder. Don't leave it in the Theov folder.

    To be sure, I've uploaded the latest version to the dropbox.
    It has the Time Machine, Gov Small Wonders and I added seals and crocodiles as a bonus resource too :)

    I put the whole folder in conquests then I put the theov.biq into the next conquest folder.
    should I be putting each folder into the exisiting folder to replace them?
    thanks

    If you start the mod from the civ-content, you can choose whatever map settings, size, barbarians and opponents you like, just like a normal game.
    Austria is the new civ.
    Beware of the Mongols - they are and behave like barbarians and barbarians are stronger in this mod. :)

    14Jan updates will follow later (footknight/Crusading order, Stonehenge)

    I like the new graphics for the Goody Huts and Barbarian Camps, and the dedicated Barbarian units. I have made the Barbarians a bit stronger on top of what you did, giving them 5 additional hit points and raising them to the equivalent of a Veteran for the game. That also keeps them relevant for longer in the game.

    I will make up a longer list of comments, and should I post that here or send them to you via private message?

    3: Monarchy: Tax office, +5% added to the Treasury - cumulative with Wall Street, +50% tax in city
    4: Feudalism: Crusading Order. Builds a Footknight every 5 turns and lowers WW.
    5: Fascism: Party Rallies - adds a palace, produces a smoke mortar every 5 turns.

    A thought on Feudalism, which is thoroughly mis-modeled in C3C.

    European (and AFAIK Japanese) Feudalism refers to a socio-politico-economic system in which:

    • There is no monetary economy (gold coins and whatnot were hoarded by kings, and essentially only utilized for "payments" at that level.)
    • "Knights" = Productive (elite leadership aside from Crown officials and Clergy) essentially removed from otherwise productive roles while being all-but-dedicated to military training and service - In short, I'd recommend a 1 Pop cost per Knight etc.
    • Ditto "feudal levies" ("fyrds" and whatnot) - the bottommost and critically productive (we are speaking of an essentially, purely agrarian economy = 1 Pop.
    • Personally, I would also prohibit any improvement allowing City Growth to Size 3 (as late as 1620 CE, less than 2% of Europe's population lived in "cities" with a population > 20,000 - Demography: The Science of Population, b Jay Weinstein & Vijayan K. Pillai)

    Cheers,

    In this latest installment, I am proud to have made a victory movie that comes with building the Time Machine.
    Also, weird creatures appear at the end of the tech tree.
    Minor other changes were made.

    Not much has changed since that last installment and I got great feedback! Many people loved this mod.
    I can imagine people have ideas or requests, like I received during the creation of this mod.
    So if you have any idea to add to this mod, let me know. It's a continuous process of making this better.

    nice work man.
    the only idea that would be great in your mod is to eliminate pollution and change it with unhappiness.

    keep up the good work

    Polution is a part of the game that requires to be managed. I would eliminate choices for research (will I invent Ecology) or the choices in power plants etc.

    Also, global warming is a dynamic of the game that changes landscapes.
    By the way, Tundras turn into grasslands in my mod. (unchanged in the original game)

    What I did, was add a wind farm as a natural power source which can be added to the solar plant.
    Since the solar plant replaces any other power plant, this makes natural energy a better option.

    I also lowered the worker turns to clear damage from 24 to 16 (67%) because I thought 24 was a bit long and with the blacksmith, pollution happens earlier.

    The update will happen somewhere in the weekend I think.
