    Civ5 multiplayer PRO map script

    Description:
    Another mirrored map for players who like to have ideally equal starting spots. It is script dedicated to 1v1 game with City State, barbs camps, ruins...
    This map uses Leszek Deska invert mirroring algorithm from LDeska script.

    It makes mirror of all element of the game:
    1) landmass, resources, natural wonders...
    2) Players starts positions,
    3) City State starts positions,
    4) Barbs Camps (with active barb warrior),
    5) Ruins,
    6) Players Teams (one team on left , second on right)

    I have added some Advanced Setup menu with options to make MultiPlayer game more attractive:
    1) additional human units from start added by map script.
    2) additional CS units from start added by map script.
    3) El Dorado erasing
    4) uranium, horse, iron, quantity setting
    5) lux types qty setting,
    6) teams positions setting (random or frontline, distance short or long)
    7) permanent war option (game will start with permanent war between human players. ALWAYS_WAR for games without CS and NO_CHNAGE_WAR->PEACE for game with CS.)
    8) "Map setup description" popup window
    9) free road between players start positions as an option
    10) Extra gold option
    11) Extra tech option
    12) Team handicap option
    13) City size option
    14) Wonders limit option
    15) Target score option
    16) Turn based units movement
    17) some map configuration option.

    Download:
    Install program (no GAK support):
    http://forum.civilization.org.pl/download.php?id=1346

    Assets files (no GAK support):
    http://forum.civilization.org.pl/download.php?id=1345

    v19 for G&K:
    http://civilization.org.pl/forum/download.php?id=1572


    Installation:
    Run install program

    or

    To install you have to just unpack below rar into your civ5 folder: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's civilization v\
    You have to overwrite two game files and restart civ5.

    Warning: do not put it in "My Documents\..." - it will cause problems when other player will have it in correct location and you will try to play together.
    You have to restart your CIV after you have copied map script file!

    It was tested with patch 1.0.1.511 and GAK 1.0.1.705 (v19 only)

    TO DO

    1) add city traits mirroring (now script only sorts available CS by trait)-> possible when firaxis add AddMinorCiv() function or SetCivTrait()

    HAVE FUN! :D

    Troubleshooting
    1)
    Q: I have this map in my folder but I can't start a game with my friends?
    A: All players have to use the same version of the map script.
    A: All players have to save map script into good folder C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's civilization v\Assets\Maps\
    A: Restart your civ5.
    A: Delete script from "My Documents\...\maps" folder
    A: Use only the newest version.

    2)

    Q: After 1 turn I see my CIV Screen? WTF?
    A: It is ok. Map will be synchronized with host. Just wait. It is done only ones after 1 turn.

    3)
    Q: I can't load save.
    A: Don't delete old version of the script. To load save you must to have a script in your folder that was use to build map.

    6)

    v8_9
    old link

    Change log
    -some code fixing to be sure that changes made in game files are transparent for SP mode or games built on other maps

    Before install it, use STEAM files verification to delete old version.

    I think that it is final version of this map script.
