    Update RifE version (1.31): click here




    Mana Flares and Unique Events:

    This is a Python/XML Mod mainly for Rise from Erebus 1.23 (all features of this mod are supported only in the RifE version).

    This mod is also available for the newest Fall Further version (FF 051c), but not all features and bug fixes are included in this version.
    Also, this mod can be downloaded for older versions of Fall from Heaven 2 (FFH2 041i) and Orbis (Orbis 024b).


    Short description:

    1.0 Mana Flares:
    1.1 Mana flare system:
    If someone pillage a mana node without using metamagic bad/good things will happen. If you pillage such a node it will flare up and magic of the node mana type will affect the surrounding area, units and cities.
    Mana flares can also happen via event. In this case the flares are more powerful and have a higher chance to have positive effects.
    (For more details see post 2)

    2.0 Unique Improvements / Imperial Roads:
    2.1 Great Circus:
    Available via event. This is a giant hippodrome like the Circus Maximus in Rome. It will appear as Unique Improvement on the map and mounted units on this plot can take part in an epic race like in the Ben Hur movie or you can bet on your favorite horse/rider. It also provides happiness in the surrounding area.
    Update (R i f E only): In addition to that the owner gets the chance to conquer enemy unique buildings.
    Also the owner can build unique mounted units that can be built by his vassals.
    (For more details see post 3)

    2.2 Great Colosseum:
    Available via event. This is a giant Colosseum like the Flavian Amphitheatre in Rome. The ingame effects are similar to the Great Circus.
    Update (R i f E only): The owner can build unique melee units and unique buildings that can be built by his vassals.

    If these improvements (Great Circus/Great Colosseum) are destroyed you can rebuild them with cities near to the former site and all the production will add up to one production pool like it should be with projects after all (Note: Even enemy cities can help to rebuild it because they also will profit from the effects of the Great Circus/Colosseum – it's an area effect and also the special spells on this plot can be used by everyone.
    (For more details see post 3)

    2.3 Imperial Road system:
    Available via event. If you meet all the requirements you are able to "build" Imperial Roads with your workers. But to prevent the "all roads on all plots" problem you only can connect your cities with this roads. This mod will try to find the best path between your cities and will connect them with improved roads.
    (For more details see post 3)

    3.0 Elohim Events for all Unique Features: (R i f E only)
    3.1 Elohim Events:
    This adds new special one time Elohim events to all Unique Features.
    (For more details see post 4)

    Update:
    4.0 Other ModMods: (R i f E only)
    4.1 black_imperators great FFH More Events ModMod:
    Adds a lot of new events. I especially love the Gela Quest(s). See this link.
    (For more details see post 4)

    4.2 ostars great FFH More Events Modmod Expanded:
    It adds even more new events. See this link.
    (For more details see post 4)

    1.0 Mana flares:
    Display and message note:
    All applied promotions, damage and other effects will be displayed onscreen and/or in the ingame log. If you open the ingame log and click on such a message the screen will center on the affected unit, city or plot. Negative effects will be displayed in red (and positive effects to the enemy will also be displayed in red). Positive effects will be displayed in the node color (and negative effects to the enemy will be displayed in the node color as well).

    1.1 Mana flare system:

    General:
    • Lots of effects have higher chances if the cause of the flare is an event.
    • Range of the affected area:
      • Pillage (mana node will be destroyed): range 1 = 98%, range 2 = 1%, range 3 = 1%
      • Event (mana node won't be destroyed except range=3): range 1 = 1%, range 2 = 97%, range 3 = 2%
    • All damage deald by flares are not lethal.
    • Units in cities or certain improvements (tower, fort, castle, citadel) only suffer half of the damage.
    • Units with movement >= 2 can get slow promotion if the damage type is cold (or death, holy or unholy for units that are susceptible to this damage types)
    • The chance for one mana flare event in a turn is 1% for marathon, 2% for epic, 3% for normal and 4% for quick game speed. There is a maximum of one flare per turn. (This flare system won't use the event system so it will not block other events to be triggered. More mana node improvements will not increase this chance – it is always the same)

    2.0 Unique Improvements:
    Display, message and mouse over python help note:
    I tried to make things as clear as possible and made a lot of massages and hints that will guide you through all the events and event chains. I made a lot of different mouse over python help txt for events that will tell you why you can't use one option now or what will happen if you choose this or that option. If something is still unclear please post it and I will try to fix it.


    2.1 Great Circus:
    This unique improvement will only be available via event.

    See Civilopedia text:
    Requires event to be build in the first place.
    Event requires a non hill plot near Horses or Nightmares and Horseback Riding and enough money to trigger.
    Makes some Circus related events available.
    It will show up as an Unique Feature on the map.
    +2 :) in nearby cities.
    +2 :hammers: and +5 :commerce: on plot.
    Mounted Units on the plot can cast Circus Race.
    Units on this plot can cast Circus Bet (requires the Currency technology).
    The owner of this unique improvement can capture enemy unique buildings if they conquer or acquire a city.
    The owner of the Great Circus can build unique mounted units that can be built by his vassals.
    Can be rebuild by nearby cities after destruction. (Production of cities will add up to one production pool.)​

    Rumour has it that the best horses (or nightmares, depends on available resource) are within your borders.
    The Ratcatcher Guild has offered to cofinance and build a giant hippodrome near this valuable source to make profit with epic circus races.​

    If you agree you have to pay a certain amount of money (depending on game speed and if you have marble) and deliver marble. If you don't have marble you not even have to pay more, you also have to wait longer (also game speed depending) until the Circus is finished. Note: Without marble you have to trade even with you worst enemy for marble and therefore they could get some of the money you spend (<- this will show up as pop up, amount of money depends on resources available and more factors). Note2: If the AI builds the Great Circus you could get money for marble.

    After you paid and provided the needed marble a Great Circus building site will be placed next to the resource plot. In addition to that a counter sign will be placed next to it and will tell you how long you have to wait until finishing the construction. (There is some bloody delay with the signs therefore the landmarks will switch from the left side to the right side each turn).
    After the counter hits zero you will get a unique Great Circus improvement on this plot.

    Now everyone (even enemy unit) can cast circus bet on this improvement (requires the Currency technology).
    This spell let you choose how much money (10, 50, 100, 500 or 1000 gold) you want to bet on one out of ten horses/riders. If you lose you lose your money but if you win you get five times of your bet.

    Also every mounted unit can "cast" circus race on this plot. This are epic and brutal races which can led to the death of the unit (chance to survive = 50% + unit level) (I had the Ben Hur horse race in mind) but if you survive your unit will gain experience (+ 1-6) and get the morale promotion and has a 6% chance to get mobility 1 or mobility 2 promotion. Either way all cities within range gain happiness for a few turns (Happiness timer and range depends on unit lvl).

    If the Great Circus gets destroyed a Great Circus ruin landmark will be placed on the former improvement plot. Now all players can take part in a rebuild effort. If you want to do so you need a city near to the former improvement sight. All near cities can rebuild the improvement (it works like a normal building). Note: All the production of all cities will be transferred into one production pool and will be shown in a sign next to the ruin. If the sign hits the 100% you will get a new Circus improvement on this plot.

    Additional events can take place if you own that improvement (similar to Olympic events in the normal game).

    2.2 Great Colosseum:
    It is very similar to the Great Circus improvement.

    This unique improvement will only be available via event.

    See Civilopedia text:
    Requires event to be build in the first place.
    Event requires a non hill plot near Copper or Iron and Smelting and enough money to trigger.
    Makes some Colosseum related events available.
    +2 :) in nearby cities.
    +2 :hammers: and +5 :commerce:
    Melee units, Recon units, Animal units and Slaves on this Unique Feature can cast Arena Battle. (Slaves will become Warriors if they win a fight.)
    Units on this Unique Feature can cast Colosseum Bet (requires the Currency technology).
    The owner of the Great Colosseum can build unique melee units and unique buildings that can be build by his vassals.
    Can be rebuild by nearby cities after destruction. (Production of cities will add up to one production pool.)​

    2.3 Imperial Road system:

    If I only added Imperial Roads everyone would build them everywhere. I wanted to create something that feels more like the Via Appia. Imperial Roads that only connects cities. So I decided to make this mod component:


    This unique road system will only be available via event (because this roads should not be in every game). Unlike the unique improvements this event can be triggered by more players in the same game so everyone can get them.

    Requires at least one road and at least four cities on the same continent (same area) like your capital.

    Event trigger text:
    We should establish a network of Imperial Roads to connect all Cities with our Government Centers so we can send our troops more quickly to any point in our empire.​

    If you choose to do so your troops will search for proper stone resources for the new Imperial Roads. This will take a little time (depends on game speed, will be displayed in mouse over help txt).

    After a certain time you find some stone resources.

    If you build quarries on the stone resources and connect them with your cities you can "build" Imperial Roads with your workers.

    If you want to build such Imperial Roads one of your workers has to go in the city you want to connect with your capita. Make sure your capital has access to stones. If you meet these requirements your worker can cast in the city the "Build Imperial Roads" ability.
    After you do so you will get a pop-up. It will tell you how much this connection will cost (the costs depends on: game speed; available stone resources; distance to capital; and movement cost from this town to capital <- that also means that if you have connected this city with your capital via normal roads it will be much cheaper than without roads – and the python code also prefers to use roads instead of movement cost heavy terrain). Update: Some civilizations can build this roads cheaper than other e.g. Bannor only 1/3 and Kuriotates only 1/2.
    The popup also tells you how long the construction will take (also game speed depending) (Note: existing Imperial Roads in the path won't cost any money or time)
    If you have enough money and you chose to build it your worker will be immobile for this time.
    Now you will receive every few turns (e.g. game speed quick = every 2 turns) one Imperial Road segment starting from your capital and ending after a certain time in the city with your worker. (Note: You can only build one Imperial Road project at the same time.)

    If you are in a city that can't be connected with your capital (because it's on another continent or a mountain chain blocks the way) you can connect it to another government center. Government centers are cities with Palace (= capital), Summer Palace national wonder or Winter Palace national wonder.
    The code will check first if it can be connected to the capital, then to the summer palace and then to the winter palace. If that all vials it means that this city is so provincial that it can't get any Imperial Roads at all.

    Note: Destroyed Imperial Roads will become normal roads.
    Update: On screen counter for search for stones event and Imperial Road project progress added.

    Very cool stuff!

    And the Mana Flare part is exactly the old part of this mod. It's over one year old. I didn't uploaded it because I was to lazy to write a thread with description. I'm glad I found the time to do so. I hope you will enjoy it.

    Well, I have to download it and see if there is some crazy python stuff going on like with the BUG mod (and therefore Wild Mana mod). If not (I think and hope) it would be easy to make a compatible version. I will have a look into it...

    Hmm, I'm not sure what the BUG mod changes to the python files... But it isn't entirely added to Orbis. There's some aspects of it but not all. Like, there's no way to configure it with CTRL+ALT+O as it is very primitive.

    But it should be pretty easy to do. Even though merging python can be cumbersome.

    most python changes from the BUG mod are in maininterface.py (which I guess you don't change at all). If you use a program like WinMerge, there shouldn't be problem (hopefully) to merge your mod into most modmods

    I downloaded Orbis and it seems to be as easy as the FF merge.
    I will try to make a version anytime soon.

    With the BUG mod / Wild Mana mod I have to see how I can use my custom function thingy... It seems to be a little bit different. I'm not a programmer at all so this could take a while...

    Well, yesterday was the first time I played Orbis and it was awesome. There are so many cool things in it (and they have imperial roads, I very like the name and the icon - mybe I will steel it ;) ).
    Now I really have a problem - I don't know what modmod I should play :sad:. FF, Orbis, Wild Mana or oFFH2 ... :D
