    I didn't know where to really ask this so I put it here.

    I'm not a modder of any type, but I was wondering how I could help improve RoM besides giving you feedback.

    Hmm.. well, I could use some help with strategy and quote texts, since those are still missing for almost all new things. This doesn't require any modding skills as you would just provide text that I then copy&paste to right objects.

    Another thing if you are interested in history, is to go through different civilizations history and look for historical unit types. I like to add as many as possible these to make Civs feel more unique. When find something good information, provide link for it in discussions on this forum so I can check it up (I do read a lot ;)). Ancient unit types are preferred as info about those is harder to find (I can check Tank/Plane types for each Civ pretty easily).

    You can suggest some mod components as well, I don't have time to check everything the community has made so some cool components might have passed by my "sensors". Adding new feature from mod components is bigger task usually so I might skip some components - I prefer to add components that enhance gameplay in way or another.

    Well I'm glad that I can help you but one question.

    For what would you like for me to get quotes for?

    Is there a detailed feature list available somewhere? I am specifically looking for a list of the new civs and new wonders. I just cannot figure out which ones are new and which ones are old for some of them.

    This could be very long to put in, but worth it, because it would take RoM unit graphics to new level. I was a little surprised that I tried to play with Aztecs (ussualy play with Romans) and their GP was the same. Well this mod changes GP and much much much more. ;)

    I've updated the feature list after each RoM release and will do so again once v2.8 is ready for release.

    Not sure where to post, I have a new computer utilizing Windows Vista. I cannot get your Mod to extract from WinRar. When I highlight folder and hit extract, I get a WinRAR diagnostic error box with 3 errors.
    1. Cannot Open path folder
    2. The system cannot find the file specified
    3. No files to extract.
    Can you help as I enjoyed your Mod on my last computer which was Windows XP.
    Also do I need to make any changes to virtual memory or other to have mod play faster and stable.
    Thanks for your help!

    I apologize if this isn't the correct place to post this, but you mention in your features list an extra civ addon pack with 55 additional civs. Can somebody point me to where this download is available? I apologize if it is obvious but I seem to be missing it in the forums.

    Thanks!

    I think the extra civ pack is currently incompatible with the latest version. Some of them have been included in the bulk of the game though, but not much. Corrrect me if I'm wrong somebody.

    Info about the extra civ addon pack can be found from this thread. While the current version was made for RoM 2.71 it should work with RoM 2.8 as well (at least it works on my computer) but some settings are incorrect and I'm currently in the process of updating the addon pack to RoM 2.8 settings.
