    This modification is for Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword patch 3.19. Neoteric World expands upon the modern era and future eras in the game, The expanded future era is optional to play. The focus of this mod is to add more quality content without overloading with too many new features. You will find many of the upgrade paths for units are now more beefy, for example you progress through World War one tanks all the way upto modern tanks and beyond! There are no critical errors to this mod like the other mods out there, so its 100% stable. If your new to modifications, your in for a shock :D

    [size=+2]The New Features[/size]


    [size=+1]Revolution[/size]

    Revolutions can now occur in your empire. Revolutions occur when you badly manage your empire. This can lead to a civil war inside your empire with a rival faction forming and massing military units inside your empire. They will try to take over the cities that are in Revolution state. If they manage to capture cities. They can form a new civilization. There is a new icon top right hand corner that displays a picture of Che Guevara, this is where the revolution information can be seen. But do not panic, you get several warnings and options to try and prevent Revolutions from occuring...

    Each city now has a revolution Index, The higher it gets the chance of revolution increases. Things that can increase Revolution index are : War, Distance from Capital, Religeon, Civics, Units, Losing Wars, Starvation etc! There are also events that can decrease your Revolution index like : Wonders, Winning wars, Religeon etc.

    Sample Pictures
    Spoiler :




    [size=+1]Lead From Behind[/size]
    This game feature re-evaluates which unit will defend when you attack a stack or city. Valuable units like Generals and highly promoted units are now much less likely to be the first to defend. They now lead from behind!

    [size=+1]Inquistions[/size]
    You can now remove religeons from your cities! Thanks the the Inquistor unit! But beware, It can cause temporary unhappiness and increases your revolution index...

    [size=+1]Barbarian Civilizations[/size]
    Barbarian cities that grow big enough can now form new civilizations. They will first form a minor civilization and then once they are still progressing after a certain amount of turns they will flourish into a brand new civilization.

    [size=+1]Influence Driven War[/size]
    My personal favourite. This game option makes boarders change according to military victories that occur on tiles. So basically if you win battles on an enemy controlled tile you will gain X amount of possession percent of that tile. Simulating real life where armies gain control of lands after destroying their enemies!
    Example, If you are persian and attack a greek unit on a tile that is 53% greek and 47% persian and WIN, you will gain percentage off the greek 53%, and this may be enough to sway the tile in your favor so you own it.

    [size=+1]Improved Global Warming[/size]
    Prolonged Nuclear exchanges now cause nuclear winter and pollution to drop from the skies. Terrain will no longer change to desert immediately. When global warming first strikes, it removes forests/jungers -> Removes ice -> Tundra to Grassland -> Grassland to plains -> Plains to Desert. Or alternatively the opposite way around in some areas, Ice freezes over etc.
    Select Rising Seas on Custom Game menu for this improved global warming.

    [size=+1]Realistic Diplomacy[/size]
    Computer now considers friends as civilizations it is Friendly with, not pleased.
    The below are no longer permenant modifiers in diplomacy. They will decrease their negative effect over a certain amount of turns.

    You nuked our friend
    You nuked us
    You razed our cities
    You declared war on us
    You declared war on our friend
    You razed our holy city
    You spy was caught causing trouble
    You brought in a war ally against us

    [size=+1]Events with Images[/size]
    Now everytime an event occurs for you, a pop up window will occur showing a image of what the event is about. You may for example have a image of an exploding volcano and the options you have available to you. Pure graphical change, no effect on gameplay.

    [size=+1]BUG and BULL[/size]
    There is a little Ladybird icon in the top left hand corner while in game. Click this will bring up a menu that allows you to pretty much customize every advisor, game options and the information available to you that Firaxis did not allow you to see. Its really amazing what you can do with this. Its great for micro managing your empire to get complete efficiency.

    [size=+1]Better AI[/size]
    The computer is now more intelligent, plans better military campaigns, understands diplomacy and better manages its empire. Be carefull, you may need to drop a difficulty.

    [size=+1]New Diplomacy Option[/size]
    When you enter into the diplomacy screen with another civilization, you now have the option to Refuse to talk. They do it to you, You can now do it to them. Stops them hassling you for trades and demands :D

    [size=+1]Super Spies[/size]
    Spies now have the ability to gain promotions when built and gain experience after successfull missions.

    [size=+1]Culturally Diverse City Styles[/size]
    A vast improvement on Firaxis graphics for cities. Cities from asian, european, arabic, south american...etc civilizations are now much more diverse and look superb.



    So how does this all fit together is a question you must be asking yourself. Standard Beyond the Sword heavily lacks a modern era that represents our present day. There is much Firaxis missed out, well this mod corrects that. The technology tree is revamped and allows for a smoother progression through the ages. With new technologies comes new units, Not all the units listed below can be built the same time. The upgrade routes of units are now much more in detail which allows for a smoother progression when you are playing. You will find the World War One and Two eras have more features and Post World War Two to present day is particularly special in this mod. Extra care has gone into making sure everything is balanced correctly and you do not get overloaded with too much information and units. The future era has also been expanded upon the Next War mod that came with Beyond the Sword.

    An excellent addition are the modern troops which can enter chinook transport helicopters and can be dropped in and out of hotzones quickly, back them up with the mighty AC130 Gunship and it can give you decisive victories. Gone are the days of spamming as many tanks as possible, Wars now require thought and a diverse army. Specials forces and modern infantry forces that posses new promotions like the javelin missile can stop tanks in their tracks. All is not lost for the tanks and mechanical vehicles, they too get new promotional options like Thermal Imaging. Some units may have a limit to how many can be built for the sake of balance, once you reach that limit you will be able to build the previous version of the unit that had been replaced.

    [size=+2]Questions?[/size]

    Ask and thou shall have answers!

    I cant get Blue Marble working with this mod? A. It does work

    1. Open the Neoteric World folder
    2. Open Neoteric World.ini (Configuration settings) with notepad or a text editor
    3. Change 'Custom Art from the user folder is not loaded' from the 1 to 0.
    4. Change 'Custom XML and Python from user folder are not loaded' from 1 to 0
    5. Save, Done.

    I hate future techs and the Next War Mod, How do i get rid of it?

    1. Go here
    C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\Neoteric World\Assets\Modules
    2. Delete Next War
    3. Done.

    I get some text errors and im using Vista, Whats wrong?

    1. Right click the Neoteric World shortcut
    Normally in C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\Neoteric World
    2. Select Properties
    3. Select Compatability tab
    4. Check run as administrator
    5. Press Ok, fixed!

    I want more Leaders and Civilizations, can they be added? A. Yes, very easily.

    I included high quality new civs and leaders in this mod but there are many others I did not include. If you want to see a specific civilization or leader added, it literally takes a few minutes to add. I can either do it and release it as an add on for Neoteric World or if you search the forums or pm me you can find out how to do it yourself.

    I dont like Revolutions and I dont like Barbarians being able to form civilizations

    1. Turn off Revolutions and BarbarianCiv in custom game menu.

    Revolutions and Barbarians create too many new civilizations in the game, what can I do?

    1. Look inside Neoteric World mod folder, there is a very small instruction guide to limiting how many civilizations revolutions and barbarians can create. Its 3 simple steps.

    The game freezes in loading screen when making a game! Whats going on!?!

    Giant and Gigantic maps can take a minute to a few minutes to generate, It will appear as though its frozen but its just a really big map to generate. Some computers will do it fast and some will not. Its worth it though, maps are masssssssssive!

    Dont worry about it. It wont effect anything, whenever I get a pop up with standard BTS or any mod they rarely cause any problems.

    New carrier for future era.



    You may need to redownload this mod if you downloaded it yesterday.
    That python error is nothing by the way, a reinstall of beyond the sword or patch 3.19 would probably fix that, but its unnecessary.

    can this mod use default/public maps? (example Earth 18 civs) Will download it when I get home but would love to play this on an earth map. Also, can you convert saves from standard BTS 3.19 into personal scenerios that can use this mod? (example I am playing an earth map now and have reached future tech. can I save it in the world builder as a scenerio and play it in this mod?)

    Thanks looks like a great mod.

    Edit: Does this mod slow down in the modern/future era like BTS can? Did not know if you did something about this.

    Great mod BobeBrown. I just finished one game in the modern warfare mod. No problems here. It runs fine. :goodjob:
    I like playing somewhere in the modern ages. Is there a chance you can make a scenario that starts later in the game, like WW I or II, or the cold war.

    Keep up the good the good work.

    Hey BobeBrown, im liking the mod, but i feel you miss the guerilla and a more modern version of the guerilla.
    So in my game i made the guerilla and the later version called freedom fighter.

    I know you can use other special limited units..but they are expensive and limited!
    Please think about adding something like these to just fill the gap with cheap cost units with hidden nationality.

    Guerilla (requires training ground)
    - Hidden nationality
    - Can withdraw 20%
    - 20% v gunpowder
    - 20% armour
    - Free promo guerilla1

    Potentially. They would have to be a new unit class of their own because allowing them to get all promotions would make them overpowered. The special forces currently in Neoteric World are very effective in running unofficial wars and ripping apart enemy infrustructure before you go to war with them but thats why they are limited to two units. Adding more hidden nationality units could cause an easy exploit to win :/

    Dont think I would add a hidden nationality plane because it would not be realistic. You dont get rogue pilots present day doing hit and run attacks over countries boarders.

    Glad everyone is enjoying it and good feedback! Like hearing new ideas to update with

    What I meant by slow down was late game lag/long between turns waiting time. I have played it and it does not seem to be a problem. I took out global warming completely though lol but thats just me.

    I am only a very novice modder, so I was looking at the globaldefinesalt file in the xml area. There does not seem to be a way to change the max national wonders per city or place a max world wonders per city. Also I noticed that a few of the options for nukes were not there (example the nuke building destruct probability). Can I add these in by cutting and copying from the standard BTS?

    You need GlobalDefines.xml from Beyond the sword because Neoteric World does not include its own version of that. Inside Neoteric world is GlobalDefinesALT.xml, you mixing them up i think.

    From that you can also reduce the probability of Global Warming to 0, by changning GLOBAL_WARMING_PROB from 20 to 0. I never play with Global warming too lol ^^ I like my nuclear exchanges to go on and on and on.

    I have added Iraq and Iran but not released it yet but if anyone would like a quick release to have these civs in game then I can do that.
