    Patch: Patch "c"

    Media Pack: http://www.gameflood.com/Mashup/Index.cfm?intModID=9529

    0.23 Changelog:
    Spoiler :

    Fixes
    1. Remade all flags so the white flags fix won't be nessesary.
    2. Defensive strength modifiers will now be correctly used (previously the attack strength was always used, most apparent with the enraged promotion which aways gave +40% instead of +40%/-40%).
    3. Loki correctly flees to free tiles when attacked (instead of being respawned).
    4. Disabled the onUnitMove python function (for performance).
    5. Fixed Acheron spawning without the Dragons Hoard.

    Additions/Removals:
    1. Removed the Camel Archer unit.
    2. Added the Camel Archer as a Malakim UU replacing horse archers.
    3. Removed the Vile Touch promotion.
    4. Removed the Domesticate Camels Tech.
    5. Added the Dexterous promotion (+1 attack strength).
    6. Added the Sinister promotion (+1 attack strength).
    7. Removed the Dwarven Adept, Infernal Settler, Infernal Worker and Orc Immortal units (they were just there to put the race tag on the unit which is now given automatically).
    8. Removed the Hippus Summoner unit (not needed now that AIR is open to everyone).
    9. Removed the Enforcer (was to advanced looking for a warrior replacement).
    10. Broke the high bandwidth resources off into a seperate "media pack".
    11. Removed the Hippus Settler.
    12. Allowed building classes to used for unit requirements (so if a unit requires a training yard but it has a bannor training yard it can still build the unit).
    13. Added the Bannor Training Yard building, it grants the Guardsman promotion to all melee units produced in the city.
    14. Added the Hippus Stables building, it grants the Horselord promotion to all mounted units produced in the city.
    15. Removed the Horselord trait.
    16. Added the Ljosalfar Archery Range, it grants the Dexterous promotion to all archer units produced in the city.
    17. Added the Svartalfar Hunting Lodge, it grants the Sinister promotion to all recon units produced in the city.
    18. Removed Panthers from the game (functionality identical to wolf packs).
    19. Changed all the 4th tier mercurian angel units to their own unitclass.
    20. Removed all the 2nd and 3rd tier mercurian units (they were only there to block upgrades to the 4th tier angels (no longer possible).
    21. Added a checkPromotions SDK function which checks and removes promotions from units (called from convert).

    Balance Changes:
    1. Changed the Acrobat to an only art modified Balseraph Hunter.
    2. Made the Freak Show a Balseraph only building (instead of having it replace the Hunting Lodge).
    3. Reduced the Agriculture civic from +2 food per farm to +1 food.
    4. Infernal units without a race are flagged as demons (just as khazad and luchuirp are flagged as dwarves).
    5. Clan of Embers units without a race are flagged as orcs (just as khazad and luchuirp are flagged as dwarves).
    6. Changed the Defensive promotion from +40% defense/-40% attack to have it double the units fortification bonus. It can be learned by melee and archers units with combat 2.
    7. Gargoyle's and Shield Walls start with the Defensive promotion.
    8. Shield Wall strength changed from 3/13 to 5/12 and their city defense reduced from +25% to +0%.
    9. Stoneskin Ogre strength changed from 4/13 to 9/12.
    10. Elven archers strength reduced to normal archer strength.
    11. Gilden reduced from 5/5 strength to 4/5 strength and he starts with the Dexterous promotion.
    12. Required Unowned Tiles per Animal increased from 3 to 6.
    13. Required Unowned Tiles per Wolf increased from 5 to 10.
    14. Barbarians no longer consider animal counts in their areas when considering how many barbs to spawn (so more animals wont effect barbarian rates).
    15. Bear and Lion dens can no longer be built within 5 tiles of each other instead of 3 tiles.
    16. All units (that have a strength) get +1 strength.
    17. Recon units bonus vs animals reduced from +100% or +75% to +50%.
    18. Chaos Marauder reduced from 6 to 5 strength.
    19. All longbowmen and crossbowmen lowered 1 strength, given the ability to use bronze and iron weapons and had their ore requirements removed.
    20. All Heavy Crossbowmen and Flurries lowered 2 strength, given the ability to use bronze and iron weapons and had their ore requirements removed.
    21. Purge the Unfaithful made into a ritual instead of a wonder.

    Wow. I can't believe how fast the gameflood site is... I've downloaded it in less time than it usually takes to wait to be able to start downloading from the 3d gamers site.

    Congrats on the release!

    A tiny point: the Fall from Heaven 2 023.ini file has 0.22 references still inside it.

    Mind mana gives:
    +3%*n :science:
    +3%*n :gold:
    +3%*n :culture:

    Is this intended?

    Also All of the slave cages now require the Hunting Lodge instead of the freak show. (Other Civ still do not have the ability to build them though.)

    I am not sure if this is a cosmetic issue or not, so I will put it here.

    When I built the Form of Titan is played the Forbidden Palace video.

    I have a scout with forest stealth promotion in a jungle. even after waiting a couple turns or moving, invisible promotion does not show up, and in fact while in a jungle he was killed by a giant spider.

    Baby spider gets a "pink" circle for the locator (when it is out of the screen).

    EDIT: Oops, didn't see the "no cosmetics" rule. Just move to the cosmetic issues thread.

    Graphics for Yvain the woodelf are broken and causing this CtD. It will be fixed in patch "a".

    After playing about 250 turns as the Amurites (Valledia), the game crashes and dumps me to a dialog window saying that there's a problem and if I want to report the error. When I tried reloading the game, I got the same crash at the same turn.

    Yes, that is technically correct. According to Civ4 a unit is only a UU if it replaces another unit for a civ. Not if it is only buildable for 1 civ (go figure). May need some documentation to clarify this a bit but it isnt an error.

    in .22 the mercurians were listed as having unique units, and the lunnotar are counted as a unique unit, or is there some inconsistency in my argument?
