    @All please welcome officially Feilong as our member, who will take responsibility for updating the Civilopedia. :goodjob:

    @Feilong
    These are good suggestions.

    @Spartan, Lopez is working at this time on that. I don't know if the ranged attack is yet possible. However you have to consider that each additional wish would delay this project. The idea with Tanks is actually not bad. As we can see how Tanks can be trapped in the cities and urban areas, it might be useful giving them -25% or -50% City defense. In this case the player has to roll the Tanks to offensive and defend the cities differently. As Mexico already said, the Tanks cannot taking cities anyway, and in this way we are able to nerf their defense as well so only Tank popping won't lead to victory anymore at all.

    Tanks could be produced to attack, taking cities and defend them as well. In the new version, Tanks can't taking cities anymore and rely on infantry and other units. Neither will they be efficient to hold a city and have to roll out in order to be efficient. This gives other units a greater role in the battle.

    Helos over water is not yet 100% finished, The author is still improving it. I suppose this will come with an update. Sniper Mod as such won't make much sense. Sniper is a specialized unit. The units in Civ are generalized.

    @strategyonly
    Taking cIV III as reference is quite odd. I think CIV III was sofar the worst CIV ever. ;) I think Firaxis did a great job on the World WOnder race. If you loose, you get all your efforts back in money (you are selling the production and resources you had gathered). In Old CIV you lost the race and could swap in only one turn from Pyramids to Collosus. How unrealistic is that? But the ranged ARtillery might be added in an update.

    As Mexico already mentioned, we are waiting for 2 Mod components from 12Monkey. One is a ReligiousMod that will improve the importance of religions and their effect on each other. The other one is already fisnihed the RazeCity Mod that will delay razing a city, as explained in the posts before. There will be an SDK Mod merge of the RazeCity Mod and GreatPersonThreashold Mod, where it is not important to build all the wonders in one city anymore to get the great persons sooner, you have more freedom.

    The progress is good. We are adding every day new units and improving past functionalities. Mexico did a great job on rewriting most parts of the code. Nightravn is also doing a great job on balancing the game, testing and improving the time line. We are getting there....hehe

    Regards
    Houman

    The Ranged Artillery will be included WHEN Dale's Combat Mod is finished and then included in the mod with a future Update.

    The Mod is progressing greatly and as Mexico stated it is very playable and available from the repository. It is looking AWESOME with all the new units as such. I would suggest that you DL and Play it as that will help us with bugs and I want to know how the game balance between the Era's is. I have the Timeline down pretty much but at some point we will probably be including The Lopez "Not Just another Game Clock" Mod and take the actual years out of the Picture and just show the Era you are in.

    So I need to know if you are able to research most of the Techs of the Era in the number of turns alloted. I know their are ways to jump ahead by using the CS slingshot and the Oracle and If you want to be in the Middle Ages without agriculture then thats your issue. Remember with no tech trading you will have to research All techs. I want to know generally speaking if it is playing out appropriately.

    @ Los Tirano and anyone who wants to use the mod as we are working on it. You need to follow the SUBVERSION link from the SourceForge project and follow the instructions there. It will allow you to DL the version we are working on. Just remember that we are updating it constantly so check it often. The version we got now is working beautifully but that can change any moment.

    @ MR. Dictator - yes it shall be very soon.

    I've tried to access the subversion, but I'm just getting a headache.

    Maybe I'll wait for the finished installer...

    you all are right, we are in big delay (as someone wroted, this mod was never released when is promised), so i don't promise anything
    from my point, we are working hard (but i personaly have time only from 8pm to late midnight - and this is problem to searching for bugs when one is tired... and those bugs are very quickly - i can't catch anyone in last two days :cry:) but now it is in beta stage, no new functionality, only bugs resolving, civpedia updating and installer preparing...(no much work, but lack of time)
