    Installation:

    The attached files need to overwrite their originals in your CIV4 BTS MODS folder. Consider cloning the folder and renaming it so you don't render your current games unplayable. Once more of the mod is functional I'll learn the voodoo to create a module for casual users.

    BACKUP the original files. That way undoing the mod is fairly easy.

    Subsequent releases will replace the original attachments.

    Uh, slight problem that occurred to me... The Amurite wonder is supposed to be one mana from each sphere, but law and mind are both divination, and alteration is left out.

    In the install notes it says to overwrite files in CIV4 BTS MODS but i don't have any files with those names in there. Did you mean C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods?:confused:

    Well, after a month figuring out how the install the files I found out that this stupid mod doesn't even work with the Fall Further 051, Orbis, or FFH Wild Mana mods. All I get are a bunch of xml errors when i try to load those mods and then a CTD. Those are the only mods I play so that was a waste of my time. Nice try though. 2 out of 10 for not enough install instructions and for not working for my mods.:mad:

    Sounds very interesting! Although the patron God of the Svartalfar is Esus not Aeron.

    Demon Altar already does this, and since the Infernal get Veil in all their cities for free, they can build Demon Altar in all their cities
