alright i have pretty much finished version 4.0 and have uploaded it to filefront for you. filefront seems to be having some problems at the moment though so i am also putting it on here in the download section and at atomicgamer. sorry it took so long. ok just to let everyone know i will be posting the new work for this mod on http://civjunction.freeforums.org/viewforum.php?f=55. it still isnt ready but im working on it Atomicgamer Link: http://www.atomicgamer.com/directory.php?id=5121 File Front http://files.filefront.com/NewDestiny+v40rar/;11985518;/fileinfo.html 430MB this link is for all files for this mod old and new http://hosted.filefront.com/lordgraywolfe/ This is whats new in this mod, at least most of it, if i forgot to list something new i added im sorry but it will make for a nice surprise . Spoiler : ND v4.0 I have changed flood plains. it is now a +2 to food and a -1 to production, the -1 to production will only affect the plains or places where you build workshops and watermills. it will also appear in tundra, grasslands and plains now as well as desert. I have changed yields on rivers, now ANY tile that a river runs through, with the exception of ice, will get a +1 to food. the ice/snow tiles will only get the +1 to income. if there is a flood plain it will take the place of the river yields not add to them. You can now build farms on desert and tundra that have access to a river I have added the Ice breaker mod I dont believe the water animal mod is working correctlly and will not redo the python for it as everytime i have it has caused the tech videos to stop working. I have fixed the misplaced tech audio quotes, some of the original quotes where being used by the new techs. I have put the adj for the norse religion in, it was missing. Added new promos, Desert1 & 2 and Arctic1 & 2. they add 20% defense on #1 and 20% defense and 10% attack on #2 as well as double movment in dessert and snow/ice.

Filing in a few areas that i felt were lacking. There are many mods out there already that probally have everthing i've put into mine and more. There are also mods that probally add much less than i did. This is my first attempt at a full fledged mod and i've learned alot while making it.If you decide to try this mod i hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed making it. Installation: unzip this into your beyond the sword mods folder; Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods start the game and load the mod from the main menu. Credits: This mod is based alot on Arma's warlords mod, it just has a bit less, and i thank him for allowing me to use his great work as a template for my first attempt. Mamba for his Diversica mod which plays a large part in this Grave Marnz The Lopez JKP1187 Wolfshanze Whiterabbit C.Roland Sevo Gir I know there are probally more i've gotten units, graphics or even just ideas from that i can't remembr right now. If i have used material from you and not listed your name i'm sorry. Just let me know and ill be happy to add it to the list. Thank you all Mods merged in: I've added in JKP1187's event mod The Lopez unit allegience mod, however that one isnt working at the moment and i dont know why yet. Mamba's diversica Enhanced tech conquest by Grave. Sevopedia Blue Marble New units: Elephant rider Imperial marine Galleass Biplane Steamship Steam Cruiser Dreadnought Cruiser Jet bomber Stealth Fighter Bombard Hover tank Hover infantry Star trooper I have also given every civ 2 UUs and plan at a later time to add a third. My goal here is to have units spread out through the game. 1 in the early game, 1 in mid game and 1 in late game. New Civs: Scotland Canada Polynesia Pirates I also removed the Holy Roman Empire from the game New Leaders for exsisting civs: Hirohito Joan of Arc Dido Theodora New Techs: Military training Seafaring Naval warfare Anti-grav Invention Archeology Tourism Amphibious warfare Steam turbine Armor tactics Super Sonic Flight Aviation New Leader Traits: Seafaring: Gives free Navigation1 promo to all ships doubles production of harbors, lighthouses and drydocks Scientific: +2 science in each city, doubles production of labs and observatories. I have also divided the traits into 3 groups and given each leader a trait from each list. so every leader now has 3 traits. the traits are orginized as follows; Military:.........................Social:..........................Political( for lack of a better term): Aggresive.......................Creative.........................Organized Protective.......................Philisophical....................Industrious Imperialist.......................Spiritual.........................Financial Seafaring........................Expansive.......................Scientific and Charismatic can fall under any/all of them New Bonuses: sulphur cotton cocco tobbaco coffee citrus Temple ruins Natural Gas New Buildings: Inn: adds happiness from tobbaco, cocco, coffee and wine and increases commerce Gas Plant: increases production Archery Range: +2 to acrhery units experiance Rifle Range: +2 to gunpowder units experiance Garrison: +2 to melee units experiance Tank Factory: +2 to armor units experiance New Wonders: World; Big Ben: free bunker in each city and reduces war weariness Leonardo's workshop : increase chance of an engineer and can make 2 citizens engineers Copernicus's observatory : can make 2 citizens scientists and increases science output Roman Roads: Increases commerce Art of War: increases chance of great general and grants +2 experiance to all units built in the civ National; World Fair: increases commerce and happiness Other: I have also made some changes in the Tech tree. Construction comes earlier now. Compass is now Navigation, i moved the Cuiriser to gunpowder. Moved the Grenadier to gunpowder. Moved Privateer to Nationalism. Moved Ship of the Line, Frigate and Galleon to gunpowder. I know there are other small changes that im forgetting at the moment, oh well im sure you will figure it out. I made a few small changes in some of the units also. the Machine gunner is no longer a siege unit but now a gunpowder unit. All the UUs now start with a promotion that they will take with them when they upgrade. The siege units no longer attack directly, they are defensive only and can bombard anything or anyone. I used a method suggested by Grave They can still defend themselves if attacked. However the flanking attack by the horse units is no longer needed and they now have a bonus against archery units. Once again i know there are other small changes that i'm forgetting at the moment but that you will find as you play. Well i think thats everything for now. I will appreciate any feedback on the mod. Im sure there are things i didnt think of that can improve it so please tell me what you think is good and what is bad and what is yet needed. At the moment there are no known issues, but much of the new stuff for this version included python. Right now i cant find any errors due to the python which makes me nervous, I have never had any luck in making python work right anytime i mess with it something goes wrong. so let me know if the unit allegiance isnt working or waterspouts arent showing up at all since they were most of the python changes. Patches Spoiler : Ok here is patch 1 which fixes the problem with of the red dot units. ok to use this delete the modules folder, dont copy over it, and then place the modules folder from the patch in assests folder to replace it. it should take care of all the unit problems. Ok patch 2, this is to add in some missing diplomacy. i noticed that when meeting some of the leaders they had nothing to say. this is more cosmetic than anything but i find it handy to actually know what they are saying sometimes . extract the patch and drop both the xml folder and the modules folder in your assests folder if you want to use this. thats it Ok patch 3, this fixes the missing text on the planetary map. extract it and drop the text folder in under you xml folder. Patch 4, this fixes the missing sound problems, at least as far as i can tell. extract the audio folder from the patch and drop in your XML folder, thats it. Patch 5, this is a minor fix for the emoticons that show up on the game screen. it takes them back from 2 to 1. it also should fix the salt problem. simply extract and drop the res folder and python folder inside your assests folder, take the terrian folder and drop it inside your XML folder Patch 6. ok this one takes care of three seperate things. 1st it fixes the red blob aircraft SoG found. once you extract the patch open it and take the Maya_CIV4UnitArtStyleTypeInfos xml file out, it goes in Assets\Modules\Civilizations\Maya, just drop it in the Maya folder. 2nd fixes the problem of archeology showing up twice in Education on the tech tree. take the TechInfos xml file out of the patch and it goes Assets\XML\Technologies, drop it in the Technologies folder. 3rd is a small text problem in civlopedia, take the BasicInfos xml out and it goes here Assets\XML\BasicInfos, drop it in the BasicInfos folder and we are done. ok this is not a patch its just a small change i made. i switched the leaderhead for Dido to the new one by C. Roland. the 2.5v has this change in it already so they wont need this. if anyone else wants to make the change though its a simple download. delete the dido folder inside Art\Leaderheads and then drop this one inside the Leaderhead folder. the xml file goes here Assets\XML\Art just drop it in and she should be good to go. There is a prroblem with the ottoman cannon unit its a red dot, mamba pointed this out. This is mambas fix for it. extract, take the XML file out of the folder and it goes here Assets\Modules\Units\Ottoman just drop it in and its good. Patch 8, yes i know the last patch wasnt numbered 7 but anyway. This patch fixes the english scout not having weapons, thanks to mamba and Chugginator for the fix, and also fixes the Australian city names not showing up right. take all 3 folders out and drop them in your Assets folder and thats it. Patch 9 is to fix the fact that i forgot to give the Iroquois Leader his third trait. Download extract and take the Modules folder and drop it in your the Assests folder and its all good Patch 10 fixes the egyptyian horse archer problem. take the modules folder out and drop it in the Assets folder and your done. you will only need the following 2 patches if you downloaded upgrade1a as upgrade2 already has both of them in it Patch 1b this is the first patch for version 3.0, it adds the audio files for the new religions that were in upgrade1a. because of the size of this patch you will have to download it off of filefront using the second link on this page. take the assets folder out and drop it in New Destiny and it will overwrite all the files it needs to quick and easy. Patch 2a the second patch for 3.0 this one replaces the TGA files fixing the religious icons on the map. extract the res folder and drop it in the Assets folder and your done With any patch i recommend starting a new game.
