New mod "Long War" released! This mod will make MOO2 games much longer. Capturing a planet requires better planning now and players cannot simply be rushed anymore. Features: Research is much slower and defenses are a lot stronger. Some techs have been regrouped. Many items have been adjusted for better use. Races have been redesigned to be more interesting and to match their nature better. Because technologies are harder to acquire, Antarans and space monster can be really dangerous now and losing a few colonies is not something rare. To avoid ruining long games, the council vote has been postponed for a long time, only the first meeting may happen during a normal game. The Atmospheric Renewer can clean up toxic planets and make them terraformable now. Many tweaks and adjustments. This mod can work well with other AI mods, especially AI ship design mods.
