    I downloaded mod-file into
    c:\Users\<my name>\Documents\My games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\MODS
    and unzipped it with 7z.
    Here (...\MODS\history_in_the_making_ii__brave_new_world_edition__v_2\XML\GameInfo\) I see your CIV5Policies.xml and I can read there:
    Spoiler :
    <Set Text="[COLOR_POSITIVE_TEXT]Tradition[ENDCOLOR] is best for small empires, with an emphasis on the [ICON_CAPITAL] Capital.[NEWLINE][NEWLINE]Adopting Tradition greatly increases the rate of border expansion in cities and also grants 3 [ICON_CULTURE] Culture in the [ICON_CAPITAL] Capital. Unlocks building the Pyramids.[NEWLINE][NEWLINE]Adopting all Policies in the Tradition tree will grant +15% [ICON_PRODUCTION] Production when building Wonders and +1 [ICON_HAPPINESS_1] Happiness for every National Wonder. It also allows the purchase of Great Engineers with [ICON_PEACE] Faith starting in the Industrial Era."/>.

    I can't understand why it is not loading.

    P.S. But CIV5Technologies.xml is loading. How can it be?

    I'm not sure what to say... I've never seen/heard of that happening before? :confused:


    Maybe you should try...

    Saw this on the Steam Workshop and have just started playing with it - it's fantastic! Please keep up the good work!
    If I may make the suggestion, might you want to try to incorporate Barathor's "More Luxuries" mod? It does apparently have a conflict with the "More City-State Luxuries" mod, but if that could somehow be worked around (I really have no experience with modding) I think it would be an excellent addition to this modpack.

    This looks very nice, it was great for Civ IV. Some of it looks a little unbalanced in the changes, but I'll have to play it to see! Glad to see you're modding CiV :)

    One of the early wonders makes the city which it's constructed in invisible. I couldnt catch which one, sorry. And "Shwegadon Paya" wonder gives error about not finding image files upon completion but not a gamebreaking error. Other than these, enjoying the mod, great work.

    edit: Invisible thing may not be about wonders, maybe some building, cos multiple cities from various civs turned invisible after some point. And I dont think it's other mods either, it happened with both HitM2 + IGE + ZipWorld map and HitM2 + IGE + YnAEMP.

    Great mod so far, I really enjoy not seeing all the resources right from the start and also that the concept of beelining has been reduced to prioritizing techs in the eras.

    Are you planning to include more changes to the leaders UAs, UUs and UBs (although the changes to America were mostly done to fix an exploit)? One inspiration could be the Communitas mod project were some UBs give instant boosts (f.e. paper maker gives additional instant science boost -> real fun building great library) or have early specialist slots to earn great people from the start (f.e. greek odeon, amphiteheater replacement, new UB replacing Companion Cavalry; has writer Specialist spot also instant culture boost ... yeehaw). Also the leaders start with different units which makes early gameplay much more different (f.e. Rome and Carthage each start with a Ship -> early coastline exploration; leaders with ancient era UUs start with one of them -> Persia-Immortal Greece-Hoplite, which turned out to be imba if you can upgrade to early Pikemen with ancient ruin and kill the world).

    Another thing communitas does which seemed very reasonable was sorting religious beliefs differently. Primarily all religious buildings are moved to reformation belief and some more faith building options are added (like jesuit education for military/mercantile/cultural buildings). All beliefs that directly modify religion spreading (interfaith dialogue, missionary zeal, heathen conversion etc) are moved into enhancer while founder and pantheon govern resources (faith, happiness & culture per tile). All city-state related beliefs as well as " "bonus" per followers in other nations" are relocated to follower.
    The benefits of that system would be to prevent the AI from taking up all the buildings without making sense (two opposing building types in one religion). Also in my current Arabia game religion appears to be somewhat unbalanced (Religion: Desert Folklore, Interfaith Dialogue, Mosques, Reliquary, To the Glory of God -> trying to win cultural; Holy city focused on population growth for many specialists and religious pressure, many farms (flood plains thank god) and harvest festival + Grand Temple, Great Mosque of Djenne -> i´ll flood the world with missionaries (even faster by pumping out great works, or music tours through reliquary once in a while GM for Gold or GE for wonders) which boost my science output while buffing my tourism output through shared religion->seems a little bit like overkill to me). With the communitas system I would have to let "reliquary" and to "the glory of god" (is enhacer there) go for the given example, which would turn out less imba I guess. Because the system would only allow civs which complete piety (religious powerplayers so to say) it would also be more immersive for AI Interaction.

    Also steam didn´t download and certain conditions render cities invisible.
    Wall of text, yeah.

    edit: also harvest seems OP since it skyrockets the population growth of the city it is build in, I think it should rather give a strait happiness bonus in the basic effect (like it does already) and deal with unhapiness per citizen in it´s complex effect (maybe like full effect in city which it is built in and half effect in all other cities -> usefull for tall and wide) since festivals don´t produce food themselves but make people happy about having a feast.

    I'll look into it. :goodjob:

    What things look unbalanced to you? :confused:

    I'll look into this. If you can try and pinpoint what building(?) is affecting this, it will make narrowing it down a lot faster.

    I toned down Harvest Festival. It will be fixed in the next version, which I'm working on now. It's going to be a while until I look into adding UU/UB. I need to get the balancing down first in the main game before I start looking into that. :crazyeye:

    I think it would be OK if Harvest Festival gives 20% growth, and aqueduct, hospital, medical lab gives 10% (sum 50%)

    In the industrial age the railroad technology needs economics to be researched. This requirement is not depicted in the tech tree. Also Eiffel tower did not give the tourism boost as advertised, in a forum on another mod I read that the bonus is tied to the radio technology (I did not yet research that, so I don´t know) so either the description of the tower or the tourism requirement should be changed.

    That's because Economics is an "OR" PrereqTech. It's a way to make a technology a prerequisite without the pipes in the tree being drawn. You would use it in cases where drawing a pipe would be ugly looking. So no, that's not a bug... I meant for that to happen. :p

    I thought I included that in the Tech's help text... I'll double check.

    Really? :confused: In the last game I played, I could only build it if I unlocked Aesthetics. Babylon beat me to it, but it didn't show until I unlocked the policy tree.

    I'd assume this update will break previous saved games? Not a big deal if it does, but am curious.
    Also, does the new Faith from Marsh Tiles Pantheon (cool idea, by the way) stack with Polders?

    Yeah, I usually have updates break previous saved games. That's not to be a jerk... it's just with so many substantial changes to game rules, it would probably screw your game up anyway. :lol:

    As far as the Polders, it should stack with them, so you should get +3 :c5food: Food and +1 :c5faith: Faith per Marsh tile.




    By the way... to any artists out there: I could really use a hand with Wonder splash screens. If you can make photo images look like oil paintings (like in the vanilla artwork) please let me know!

    It's not a problem at all; I wasn't that far into my game anyway (playing this on Marathon Speed really does make the game feel like "History in the Making"!)
    And besides...it gives me an excuse to play as the Dutch now with Super Marsh Tiles (tm).
