MoreTech The Tech Tree just got 2x bigger Overview For almost as long as I've played Civilization V, I've consistently felt that the vanilla Tech Tree was too short and was missing large swaths of human history. I noticed there were a few mods out there that expand the Tech Tree, but would only expand it in one way. For example, the Enlightenment Era mod by Pouakai only adds in the Enlightenment Era and is incompatible with other Tech Tree mods such as Prehistoric Era Reborn or Future Worlds. I wanted a mod that covered all history to the present day and the future. I eventually set out to make my own. After roughly 6 months of compiling code, graphics, and bug-testing, I'm finally ready to release this overhaul mod. I hope for it to become a communal project of sorts, akin to the Community Project (with which it was built alongside and is dependent on). With this overhaul mod, you will start in the year 50,000 BC as a nomadic tribe doing their best to survive the harsh realities of the prehistoric world. Make your way through history as you find a foothold for your empire to unfurl. Will you build an empire that stands the test of time? Features - 166 Technologies (84 NEW) - 330+ Buildings (178 NEW) - 157+ Units (86 NEW) - 152 Wonders (99 NEW) - 16 Eras (8 NEW) - 5 NEW Projects/Resolutions - 14 NEW Improvements New ErasFrom vanilla, this mod encompasses 8 new eras into Civilization V. These include (in order): Paleolithic Era, Mesolithic Era, Neolithic Era, Ancient Era, Classical Era, Medieval Era, Renaissance Era, Enlightenment Era, Industrial Era, Modern Era, Atomic Era, Information Era, Knowledge Era, Automation Era, Consciousness Era, and the Interplanetary Era. New Mechanics Health & Plague: Based on the Health & Plague mod by FramedArchitecture. Adds a new Health yield which affects city growth. Your populace can be put at risk if a disease sweeps through your cities. Dangerous in the early-game to mid-game. Doctor specialists can be put to work in your cities for extra Science and City Health. Global Warming: Another mod by FramedArchitecture. Adds a background mechanic that measures global emissions by certain buildings and improvements. Affects the landscape of the world in the mid to late-game. Prehistoric Hunting: Using Wildlife Reborn as the base, Barbarians spawn animal units exclusively until around the Neolithic Era. Animals are typically much faster and stronger than early-game units, so be careful with early-game scouting! Killing these units yields substantial Food for your tribes. Slave Trade: Based on UncivilizedGuy's mod. Until you reach the Renaissance Era, capture civilian or military units to transform them into maintenance free, but non-specialized workers. In the Ancient Era, build Slave Auctions to gain the Slave resource, which allows you to build Laborer units. Great Works of Film: Based on the Great Works of Film mod by JFD. Unlocked at Cinematography, Great Directors fill new Great Work slots with their respective cinematic works. Mid to late-game Great Person. Director specialists can be put to work in your cities for extra Culture. Medic units: Based on the Medical Civilian Units by Dark Nihilius. Adds mid to late-game medical units capable of healing nearby units. Limit of 4 per player. More Spy-centric Buildings/Wonders: A variety of offensive/defensive bonuses are unlocked in the Knowledge Era to aid in your Espionage capabilities. Defensive Nuclear Capabilites: Laser Defense Missile Systems and the Missile Shield national wonder are unlocked at Quantum Computing, which adequately defend against Nuclear Missile attacks.

Download MoreTech.7z from the hyperlink above or from here. If updating, please delete the old MoreTech folder. Extract the archive using Winrar or 7zip into your Mods folder. Go to your Documents folder and clear out your game cache. Launch your game and you should be good to go. Required Mods These mods are required to run MoreTech without any problems. Community Patch Project. Built around the 3-15-2b release and 4-7 patch. Should be compatible with newer versions however. Used as a framework for MoreTech. Critical that you use the Community Patch. Vox Populi Wonders Expanded (v2). Fills out portions of the tech tree with various Wonders. Compatible Mods Should be compatible with most mods that do not change the Tech Tree. Do be wary of any mods that add in content, as those will most likely be really unbalanced with this mod. Here are some mods made by the community that I built MoreTech around and will definitely be compatible with. Diplomacy - Auto Denounce (v1). Auto-denounces leaders when you declare war or are attacked. Very useful. Diplomacy Extended (v1). My own modmod that extends the amount of available diplomatic responses the AI can use. Global - Passable Forts (v3). Allows forts to act as passable canals for naval units. Ingame Editor (v39). Sometimes useful to fix weird glitches in the late-game. UI - Trade Routes Enhancements (v7). I extended the length of trade routes to be almost permanent. This mod by Whoward lets you recall your caravans/cargo ships so that you can change them at any time. Future Updates With the advent of quarantine and my place of work closing down, I will have plenty of free-time for the foreseeable future. Make sure to check this thread periodically for updates, as I will likely be uploading balancing changes and bugfixes every few days. Balancing changes Fixing gamespeeds to be more historically accurate. Fixing Civilopedia inconsistency. More early Barbarian variety. Wanting to incorporate more wildlife, specifically for the Marsh terrain (maybe an Alligator unit in the future?) Making UI work with EUI better. Essentially I stripped the Health & Plague mod of all UI elements to make sure it was compatible. Would like to restore the CityView health information but unsure how to edit UI. Incorporate new resources New improvements. Want to implement the Trading Posts Grow Into Towns mod. Working with VP's event system to make unique events that work with added buildings/improvements. Adding Great People and their respective Great Works for future eras. Already have some in place up to the present, but pools for Great People past the Knowledge era are empty. Want all Laborer units to dissolve at the Enlightenment Era. Want to edit the slave system to where there is a limit on how many slaves you can have (to reduce overhead) as well as implementing rebellions. Also trying to figure out how to make capturing slaves only possible if a unit is killed by a melee unit. Need a script that detects unimproved resources/features to make certain buildings attainable only if they're within a city's radius. Known Bugs Some incorrect Civilopedia entries Balancing issues Inaccurate game speeds. I mostly play on Quick/Standard. Need testers for other game speeds. Some goody huts do not work. Can't figure out why. Clicking Victory Conditions results in a crash. Likely due to how the Prometheus Program replaces the Apollo Program for the Science Victory. Hollywood wonder Civilopedia page seems to be broken. Bonus resources are being classed as Strategic resources for some reason. Can't figure out why. Cityscape art missing. Seemingly random and affects cities sporadically. Possibly due to different Civs having unique Cityscapes? Early settlement demands resources that are not unlocked yet. Not sure what I need to change to fix that.

One of my main motivation killers is how unstable vanilla Civ gets for me in the late game. Even without any mods, I rarely get past turn 800 without constant crashes. Seems to be an issue with RAM limitations from the game engine. Because of this, I am putting this project on the backburner for the foreseeable future. This mod is still very much in early alpha stages of release. I have done minimal testing in regards to balance (especially in the mid to lategame), but it seems to be stable. I do not take any credit for any of the mods that I used or made any edits to. Full credit goes to the original developers. Help Wanted!I would like the community to recommend changes as well as any users who would like to help continue development. I am primarily looking for any ideas that could supplement any of the Eras, though it would be beneficial to have modders who are proficient at importing 3D models/animations for the game or anyone adept at working with Lua. Those have been my main constraints with adding content to the mod so far. Also anyone who'd like to try their hand at fixing any of the bugs would be a lifesaver haha. If you would like to look over the framework of the mod, I made a very intricate and organised spreadsheet that will be under the Development folder in the download link or feel free to PM me with any questions/comments.
