    As a former player in your Civ 4 incarnation, let me say that this is indeed a much welcomed surprise! Thanks much for doing this, Grave. I for one truly appreciate it.

    Wow! This sounds exciting!

    **Edit**
    Looking at the additional starting techs I wonder if it's a bit of an unfair advantage giving Egypt the "calendar" tech because they'll be able build Stonehenge real quick given their wonder building trait. Did this balance OK in the Civ 4 version?

    Great work by the way! Really looking forward to playing this!

    Grave is back - Great news!!

    HiTM was the best mod I ever played for CivIV and I can't wait to see this develop into the same.

    Suggestions for mods I'd like to see included : Emigration, Enhanced Golden Age, Random events and Food Economy

    And of course the UI mods like Atilas mod, Civwillard and InfoAddict. But if there's no conflict with these as you say, I can just enable them myself.

    Once again: Great news!

    I very like this affermation: "It carries on the traditon of it's Civilization IV predecessor by adding a little bit of everything, while trying not to change too many core elements of the game "just for the sake of change""
    I'll try it at my next game.
    Very cool tech tree, the civ5 units are few and bad-spreaded along the tech tree, in your mod are few but well spreaded!

    Thank you! I hope HiTM2 lives up to your expectations! :goodjob:

    I see what you mean there. It "kinda" does in a way. An idea I had was to give each starting tech a Wonder you could build right off the bat, but the problem is coming up with that many ancient era wonders... and giving them unique stats.

    I was thinking about giving Stonehenge a PreReq number of monuments to build, but then that would step on the toes of the National Epic a bit too much. Or maybe moving it to Priesthood instead.

    I'm totally open for suggestions... this is the excact reason why I'm craving customer feedback! :goodjob:

    Thanks Skodkim! Glad to see HiTM2 caught your eye! You gave me good feed back on the original HiTM, and I know you'll have plenty to suggest in this incarnation as well! :)

    My goal is to keep the UI mods to an absolute minimum. The reason is: people have different preferences on what information they want to display with their UI mods. If I add certain UI mods, they may conflict with other mods that people like to use. So I want to leave it up to the end user to pick and choose what they want. That's not to say I won't add anything in the future, but it better have some really fancy schmancy bells and whistles. ;)

    Pretty much the same goes for gameplay changing mods: I only will add them if they add a core feature to HiTM2 that is a "must have" to make the mod perform the way I want. Emigration comes to mind, but there's no real reason to add it because it basically acts as a "stand alone" mod that can be activated and deactivated at will. It doesn't fundamentally change the mechanics of the game as a whole.

    The only things I want to change are things that affect the "big picture" that simply can't be modular (tech trees, new buildings, unit stats, etc). Again, that's not to say I won't add gameplay changing mods, but they have to be pretty much essensial to the vision I have for HiTM2 and "can't live without". :)

    I figure, if it's not broken, why fix it? I don't want to reinvent The Wheel... I just want to discover it around 3500BC and stick with it. :lol:

    Moving stonenge to priesthood is a good choise, it's distant to the starting tech a like the vanilla game i think.
    About historic coorence i very dislike the mounted-units path of vanilla, it don't reflect its raise & fall (with de maximum on meddle-ages), i hope you will concentrate on the "new kind of war" of each era in future, and if you want some suggestions, i can make some visual modification to tech tree to explain my suggestions on it.

    Hi Grave, here's my proposal for make more graduate the transition between medieval armies and 19° century army.
    The aim of these suggestions is to have a "new kind of war" at every age..
    Spoiler :




    In medieval times we have 5 units:

    Feudal Militia) Farmers bad equipped, cheap & weak unit
    Longswordmen) Strong warriors well covered and equipped, medium cost & strong unit
    Knight) Queen of the battle, high cost & very strong unit (stronger than longswordmen!)
    Crossbowmen) Citizens armed with crossbows, like in vanilla
    Trebuchet) Siege weapon, like in vanilla (very good vs cities,bad vs units)

    In reinassance times we have 5 units:

    Citizen Militia) Citizens armed with polearms, cheap & weak unit (little bunus vs mounted, like 25%)
    Pikemen) Backbone of the army, professional warriors, medium cost & strong unit
    Dragoons) Ranged unit (like ancient chariots), medium cost & raid unit, usefull vs musketmen & fears pikemen
    Musketmen) Range unit of the era, like stronger crossbowmen
    Bombard) Siege weapon, like a stronger trebuchet but only good vs cities but only weak vs units

    In 18° century time we have 4 units

    Militia) Citizens armed with musket, cheap & weak unit
    Line infantry) Trained troops, medium cost
    Hussar) Trained troops, usefull agaist artillery, flanking support and for finish infantries (like the ancient horsemen)
    Cannon) Like the vanilla cannon

    In 18° century time we have 3 units

    Rifilemen): standard infantry
    Cavalry: fast unit usefull for flanking and recognizing (loose against riflemen)
    Campal Cannon: stronger cannon with range 3 but not "undirect fire" (you must use chivalry to spot enemies and shoot them from distance!)


    To implement these,followings are needed:

    1) Some renaming of units
    2) Some adjustments on stats and abilities
    3) Skins for citizen militia (animation from original pikemen)
    4) Skins for militia (animation from minuteman)
    5) Skins for new pikeman (animation from lanzchenc)
    6) Band new stuff for dragoons
    7) Brand new stuff for musketmen
    8) Brand new stuff for bombard
    9) Skins for line infantry (animation from rifleman or old musketman)
    10) Brand new stuff for new cannon

    UU changes samples:

    Militia -> Minutemen
    Dragoon -> Cossak
    Pikemen -> Tercio

    I hope you like this and if you are interested, a can start think the effective units stats and position on tech tree (i think few new inventions are needed, max 4)

    good to see this loved it for civ 4 :goodjob:
    played till 1000ad a few observations
    i have the tech tree display problem as already noted.
    even though you have added 12 tech (a good thing) the tech rate still flies by
    tech progress needs to be slowed maybe 20-25 % .
    one of my biggest problems with the tech tree is it is to easy to run the bottom
    of the tech tree to steel .I generally play king and in at least 8 or so games I have seen longswords from another civ at 500bc not very historically accurate & makes you play
    one specfic way to have to counter . One of the base features that i cant believe got by
    testers is that research agreement dont scale by era, (they are all 300$) having them
    scale would help slow belines. modern techs are worth many times the beakers than the ancient one shouldn't they be worth more money ?
    also i am hooked on the city state diplomacy mod by Gazebo
    Have you looked in to this great mod and to adding it to yours

    Holy hell, this is great news! I had no idea this was in the works Grave, you have made me very happy. I loved HitM for Civ 4 BTS and couldn't play the game without it.

    Is this initial version compatible with the latest patched version of Civ 5? I don't mind waiting at all it isn't.
