    What would be the easiest way to merge Better AI with the Next War mod. This may have already been done, but I did a search and didn't find any topics about this.

    I have never merged two mods together and have little experience modding Civ 4, so hopefully someone would be nice enough to explain it in "easy" terms.

    I believe there was a thread about this some months ago ... or it might have been Final Frontier or whatever the space one is called. The same general comments should hold for the two.

    Sorry for dredging this up again, but I thought I'd give Civ 4 one last mega everything-in spin before Civ 5 comes out. Can I just check with those who know whether this would work:

    (1) Replace all the original BTS files with Better AI files
    (2) Run Next War as a Mod

    I've tried it and it does run, but I'm just wondering whether the fact that Next War has all these new types of units and buildings, and that it moves the space race till later, will these new feature screw up Better AI's logic?

    Ah i've tried something (a little bit) more sophisticated. I compared all the XML and py files between Next War and Better BTS AI. I merged the extra stuff from Next War into the Better BTS AI xml's, while (i hope) keeping the bug fixes and stuff from Better AI. The other files from Better AI I kept as they are as they are not replicated in Next War, and the whole combined lot is loaded as one Mod. I'm still not sure what effect the new techs and units have though, or whether the Victory Strategies from Better BTS work.
