    It doesn't work with rev/dcm addon so if you have that install you have to uninstall or rename the folder and install rom 2.2 only

    Yes, well, I thought it wasn't you, really. Anyway, I've been requested to do a RoM scenario conversion, but being not that familiar with RoM (which, BTW, I think is a brilliant mod), an 18 civ map seemed like a good starting point. There used to be one, and as I was diffling around with an 18 civ map, I thought I'd upload one myself. I consider this to be a rough version though, and any comments from users are most welcome. (Also, if zappara - or anyone - would want to do a fully RoM compatible 18 civ version for the mappack, feel free.)

    In the meantime I'll probably start with an 1066 AD for RoM 2.2 conversion, but I'm open to requests. (Eligible candidates are in my sig below.) ;)

    EDIT: errr...fiddling, that is.

    You can also have a folder for RoM 2.2 and one for RoM 2.2 + Add-on.

    My map indeed doesn't work with the Add-on (which I also haven't got installed), partly because I'm waiting for a bugfree version.

    Thanks JEELEN, I was just looking for this map/scenario from your main scenario thread, but the link there is broken. Or atleast, it didn't work for me.

    Now the bigger question is how far can I get into a game b4 the turnlag causes me to give up and retire in impatience?

    Thk you, Tandur! (Link fixed in 1st post of JEELEN's Scenarios & Maps thread. Checked all links to the RoM2.2HugeEarth18civs map and they should all be fine now.);)

    Hi Zappara,

    First I'd like to thank you for all the time and effort you've put into this wonderful MOD.

    I've been an enthusiastic Civ player for many years now and it's MODs like yours that keeps me interested in this game.
    I enjoy playing slow games so that I can savor the flavor of each age without that hurried pace to continue on to the next, for example, if I'm playing the Romans, I like their golden age of legions to last as long as possible, after all, that is why I'm playing as the Romans, right.

    I also like playing on very large realistic earth maps (Huge or bigger, the better). I like to follow the course of history as best I can, with whichever civilization I'm playing, within the games limitations.
    So your MOD is right up my alley.

    I am currently playing on a PC with Win XP SP2
    AMD x2 CPU (2.4 Ghz)
    3 GB RAM
    Nvidia GeForce 7900 GT GPU

    Have Civ 4 BTS ver. 3.17
    I downloaded /installed ROM Version: 2.2 and can play without a hitch, so far.
    However:
    In your your Version: 2.2 readme
    You state:


    ========================
    2. Features
    ========================


    * 2 New Map sizes: Giant (54% bigger than Huge), Gigantic (50% bigger than Giant ie. 134% bigger than Huge)

    Question:
    Where do I find these Giant & Gigantic size maps????


    ========================
    3. About the mod
    ========================

    I recommend playing this mod on Marathon game speed and on huge map size. I prefer making custom game and use Smartmap (you need to download it) mapscript for making good continental maps. Mod has also pre-made huge Earth map scenario with 28 Civilizations which all are on their historical starting locations.

    Questions:
    I've searched throughout this MOD and nowhere can I find the " pre-made huge Earth map scenario with 28 Civilizations" as you've described. Where do I go to get this Map???
    Also, unable to locate in the forums a BTS ver. 3.17 copy of "Smartmap mapscript" could you direct me to where I can find a current download?



    I'd like to say that I have downloaded/installed the:
    Rise of Mankind 2.x Map pack

    Likewise:

    JEELEN's Huge Earthmap 18 civs for RoM 2.2
    Both of these seem to load and play well... so far.

    Somwhere I found a separate download " RiseOfMankind28CivEarth.CivBeyondSwordWBSave" and thought that this was the missing map you described in the readme, however whether I place this in a
    Beyond The Swords\PublicMaps folder
    or a Beyond The Swords\Mods\Rise of Mankind\PublicMaps folder
    I get an error message when the map is trying to load.
    I have installed "XXL World" and it seems to work well, but it is a separate MOD for supersized, non-earth maps.

    I say all this because I don't think that my PC is at fault regarding the above RiseOfMankind28CivEarth.CivBeyondSwordWBSave file but I'm not sure where the problem lies, if this is infact the Map that you described in the Readme.
    Your assistance in locating a good download of this map, or a fix that I can implement to make the existing copy work in your mod would be appreciated.

    Once again, my very sincere and grateful thanks for all of your unselfish effort.
    Cassus

    Added Note:
    The creation date on the RiseOfMankind28CivEarth.CivBeyondSwordWBSave I downloaded is Thursday, June 05, 2008, 6:49:36 PM
    Is it possible that this particular map is not compatible with the 2.2 version of ROM?
    If that is the case awhere can I download the compatible version that was supposed to be in cluded with the Mod?

    Still waiting for a response?

    As it says, they're map sizes, i.e. for generated maps other than Earth. (Although a Giant Earth Map for RoM is currently a work in progress, last time I checked.)

    BTW, did you finish a game on RoM2.2HugeEarth18civs yet? :confused: (Because I got a report of an 18th century CTD, but no one else has reported a CTD.)

    @Milford Cubicle: If I have time I may look into it, but you might want to post a Map Request in the general Maps section (as there are quite a few map creators, that might be quicker).;)

    Ahhh, so ROM 2.2 is capable of generating non-earth like Giant & Gigantic size maps similar to the XXL World mod.
    Thank you JEELEN for that clarification.

    Regarding playing your Huge Earthmap 18 civs for RoM 2.2
    I'm still in the Ancient Age. Will sure let you know if I see anything that looks "buggy."

    JEELEN perhaps you can assist me with the rest of my query below?
    I still haven't got a response from Zappara or anyone regarding the second and third questions:

    Any help that anyone can provide with the above is appreciated.
    Thank you
    Cassus

    Well, I didn't answer this as I don't know myself (actually, I have a vague memory of wondering about this myself). You might send zappara a PM for a quicker response.;)
