Okay, here Imma, this ought to work. The corresponding promos for iron and mithril are left as an exercise for the reader. =) You might try reducing the promotionduration to 0. That might give Bronze Weapons immediately or it might have the same effect as 1, or it might wipe out life as we know it. Only one way to find out. Code: <PromotionInfo> <!-- Forging Bronze Weapons --> <Type>PROMOTION_FORGING_BRONZE_WEAPONS</Type> <Description>TXT_KEY_PROMOTION_FORGING_BRONZE_WEAPONS</Description> <bAutoAcquire>1</bAutoAcquire> <bNoXP>1</bNoXP> <iPromotionDuration>1</iPromotionDuration> <BonusPrereq>BONUS_COPPER</BonusPrereq> <UnitCombats> <UnitCombat> <UnitCombatType>UNITCOMBAT_COMMANDER</UnitCombatType> <bUnitCombat>1</bUnitCombat> </UnitCombat> </UnitCombats> <PromotionDegradesTo> <Promotion>PROMOTION_BRONZE_WEAPONS</Promotion> </PromotionDegradesTo> </PromotionInfo> <PromotionInfo> <!-- Bronze Weapons --> <Type>PROMOTION_BRONZE_WEAPONS</Type> <PromotionExcludes> <Promotion>PROMOTION_FORGING_BRONZE_WEAPONS</Promotion> </PromotionExcludes> </PromotionInfo> Edit: noticed this was on a new page. Make sure you read my last post too, Imma. http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=9561128#post9561128 Edit again: Also, this will probably work for Great Commanders, allowing them to promote weapons in the field, which is an unintended consequence. If you wanted, you could also make this promo require the Influence promo, so it would be limited to Fort Commanders.
