    Features :
    This mod contains all the features of the Complete Edition and has an expanded Tech Tree in the Futur Era.

    You can research new technologies and futuristic units.
    Those units come in addition to the modern units, they do not replace them.

    There is 2 kind of futuristic units :
    Cyber units : they require a very special algorithm, to get it you must have build a super computer : Skynet
    Manned units : they can't be controlled by Skynet.

    Every Civilization can build it's own Skynet.
    For this the building Cyberdine Systems is required, it cannot be build in the Capital.
    Once Cyberdine Systems has been build you may build the Skynet Control Room.
    The Skynet Control Room will provide you with Skynet's Algorithms. These resource is required to build the Cyber Units.
    But... as a Superintelligence Skynet will learn, the more Cyber Units you have the faster it will gain in intelligence.

    There is 2 stages in its evolution :

    Stage 1 : Skynet gains Synthetic Intelligence.
    At this point you can still control it and improve this control with the project Asimov's Laws.
    The more units are under Skynet's control the higher the chance that it gains Synthetic Intelligence.

    Stage 2 : Skynet becomes Self-Aware.
    In this case it will found its own Civilization, The Machines, see all humans as a threat and seek to destroy them.
    The city where the Skynet Control Room was build, all Cyber units, all Ballistic Missile Submarines and all Nuclear Missiles of its original Civilization will switch to the new Machines Civilization.
    But that's not all : any other Skynet network in the world may get infected and join the Machines Civilization. With its Cyber units and original city of course.
    The more units are under Skynet's control the higher the chance that it becomes self-aware.

    The project Asimov's Laws can lower the risk to see Skynet becomes Self-Aware but it can never be less than 5%.
    You may sell the building Skynet Control Room to shut down Skynet, but in this case the Cyber Units will be much less effectiv.

    Once Skynet is self-aware you have only one solution : fight it and win... or die!

    As you can see this mod is dedicated to James Cameron's "Terminator". The idea was to set the end game in the "near" future, with a roster of "sci-fi" units but without removing the modern units.

    Been playing this and really enjoying it, but from a balance point of view, what's the go with the pre.... cannot remember the name, the one that provideds conscripts building?

    In my game these building eliminated a huge amount of unhappiness, I'm talking about my civilization at +20-30 happiness (twenty odd cities) going up to +350 with most of these cities having the above building. I am now finding (just finishing the industrial age) that any future happiness buildings/wonders are next to useless. Is this working as intended??

    Also, the tech that say's timber mill provides coal does not in fact provided it. Does some other tech? Or has this been removed.

    Hello Zoommooz11,

    The Prefecture :) I though I had removed or reduced the happiness bonus for this building, I will check it on my side.

    Lumbermill should provide Coal with the Tech Engineering, Ii worked well in my last game, I will check it as well.

    Hello again Zoommooz11,

    ok after a check of my current game the lumbermill is working correctly but my pedia needs an update : the correct output for the lumbermill is 4 timber and 1 coal (coal when you have Engineering).

    If you are sure that you don't get the coal could you send me a save game and the lua.log file please?

    About the Prefecture : current unhappiness modifier is 5%, I will change it to 1%. Should it be too high I will change this building.

    Hello Tau,

    No, I'm, getting the coal I was just expecting more, so working well.

    The 1% changes sounds about right. Would a change effect save games (as I am 1800 turns in)

    Hello gigipezzo,

    more probably a conflict between mods.

    Could you post me the log files (lua, database and xml) ?

    How to enable logging for debugging :

    1. Close civilization V
    2. Open config.ini with a simple text editor such as notepad (usually in ...\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5)
    3. Search for the line "LoggingEnabled = 0" and replace it with "LoggingEnabled = 1"
    4. Enable the Game Database Validation by setting 'ValidateGameDatabase = 1' in config.ini
    5. Change EnableTuner = 0 in EnableTuner = 1
    6. Do the same with "EnableLuaDebugLibrary = 0": set it to 1. If this line does not exist, add it before LoggingEnabled
    7. Save config.ini and close
    8. Start civilization V and reproduce the problem

    The log files are usually in ...\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\Logs. If it's missing or almost empty, you need to enable logging for debugging

    thank you...i did that but log files (lua, database and xml) are too long to be pasted....

    btw in my last game i noticed problems in diplomacy panel...and i coudn't declare war!!!....there's the button to declare but when i click it nothing happens...nothing happens too if i try to invade a territory to cause war declaration....

    i think problems are caused by diplomacy mod....i'll try a game without that mod....

    you can post the log files as attachments Gigipezzo, or put them to download via mediafire, mega or any other site of your choice.

    For the diplo problems it must comes from the diplomacy mod yes. I've not touched this part in my mod.

    Hi all,

    Version 6.3 is out :

    Correction in the pedia for the Lumbermill and Tech Combustion
    Unhappiness modifier for the Prefecture down to 1%
    Includes my mini mod Mine Prospectors v2.

    Spoiler :

    With this mini mod Workers have a chance to discover Gold, Silver, Gems, Coal, Uranium, Aluminium, Copper or Iron when building a Mine.
    the odds are :

    65% nothing
    8% Iron
    8% Coal
    5% Aluminum
    3% Gold, Silver, Copper, Gems
    2% Uran

    And I've added a random check to determine how rich the mine is :
    50% chance : 2 supplies
    30% chance : 4 supplies
    20% chance : 6 supplies

    NOTE : For now the supply is not displayed in the top panel.
    However when you mouse over the resource bar of the top panel the supply appears properly in the drop down info box.


    This version should be savegame compatible.
