    lol, yeah actually, I must say almost all the functionalities are in.

    But we had promised to have two functionalities for this release: The ReligionMod (exclusively written for this mod, maybe he will be releasing it for public use) and the RazeCityMod both from our freelancer 12Monkey.

    The ReligionMod from 12Monkey will be coming this evening. It should be easy to implement though. and I am going to implement the RazeCityMod (SDK) during the day.

    I swear to the holy grail, these two are the last functionalities we will be impllementing. Amen!!! :D I will now start fine tuning the Units and assign them to the civilizations.

    Thanks

    Guys, great mod you have here. I've been with Realism since the first iteration and it just keeps going better. What I'm willing to do is offer you some work of mine. Some time ago I've made a small expansion to Great People Mod, that adds many new Great Scientists (and some other great people), found here.

    XML is from 1.09 still, but it is there just to show the name ordering.

    Not only that, but I'd like to offer you some other custom artwork I can make. I am able to make static images in Photoshop of any kind you like - more GPs (as I have the proper template), or anything other you can think of. I also have a collection of static leaderheads I made for Civ4 (yeah, I'm on it since Civ3, don't like Firaxis-style cartoons; and in Civ4 they also put a serious strain on the system), but I guess that you stick with animated 3D. Anyway, I'm willing to accept any static graphic requests you can give me.

    Niust, the Map has evolved a lot in our hands. Unfortunatelly it won't be possible for us to take the most recent version of yours without loosing all our own extensions. But we are always open to new ideas. Therfore Nightravn, please have a look on Niust recent map to see if there is something interesting we haven;t yet thought about and might be useful in our map (e.g. the resource trading etc) http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=171181

    Thanks

    Is it required that one use a premade map for this mod... or is it compatible with random maps.

    "Being an old civfanatic veteran I only know it is never released when promised"

    LOL :D I am sure we would be able to release it for Saturday. I have just received our first two SDK-Mod Componenets from our lovely freelancer 12Monkies.

    I just passed them to the team, after implementing this (which looks pretty easy to do) we are finished. Only naming the units and civilopedia and taking screenshots and preparing the marketing for the new release. hehe

    BTW as Mexico said, we have fixed the map generator, so you can play it now on generated maps. But the new world map is there as well, which could be more fun, if you have the right computer. BUT you should not use OTHER premade maps with this, since the new resources on those maps will be missing and the game will become VERY hard.

    Guys I have an interview by an investment bank in few hours. Wish me luck !!!!! :D

    Just to make sure no offence was taken by anyone on the team, I wrote that "tongue in cheek" since every major mod on this site going way back to the beginnings of Civ3 has simply never been put out when promised. Since no one gets paid by anyone and this is only a labour of love for everyone involved, it was just an attempt at humour. I'm still quite happy playing the last release (1.09) as the Aztecs as I prepare to invade Europe in a quirky reversal of history. :p

    oh, no, we don't get this as offence....it is very good description ;)
    i know what you mean, i was already impatient when waiting for new releases (not only this mod) - and this is reason, why i join to team, when i found some free time

    i hope you will be happy with this new release

    I'm not sure if this was mentioned before but are you guys going to include the Revolution and Barbarians settle down to civilizations mod when it becomes more complete? This mod is such a great mod because it takes ideas from many other mods as well as its own ideas and makes everything more realistic.

    The mod is found here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=171127

    Oh no, dont slow them down. Ive heard of this mod and it sounds great, but if it aint in already it should be delayed until the release after.

    Thanks Spartan, we will definitely include some of those ideas for the next release. This release will be finished in about 7 hours, as far as we agreed on. Lets hope the Gods are in our favour today....

    No worries Mexico. I am working on the last feature. We might get finished in 1-2 hours. However then we have to upload and release the whole thing. Hopefully Israfil is around...
