Hey all,

New beta version inbound, containing all changes from 3.10.14 as well as many more. @azum4roll has completed the Complete Merge project, which signals the beginning of the Vox Populi 4.0 era. This has been a huge endeavor largely on his part (with contributions from @N.Core and myself as well), for which I am very grateful.

The main change is that it completes the Great Merge (version 2.0) that balparmak started, cleaning up and reorganizing the entirety of (2) Vox Populi's database changes. It should now be MUCH easier to make future balance changes to the mod. The previous state of affairs...picture a large filing cabinet filled with papers tossed in haphazardly, and duct tape keeping the whole thing together. :crazyeye: It largely worked (though not without bugs), but it was very messy and hard to follow or change.

Now, however, everything is in tip-top shape organization wise, though we need the community's help in beta testing it. We fixed the most obvious bugs prior to release, and I ran a test game for crashes, but there are likely still bugs in the new database - units, techs, buildings, etc. might function incorrectly or be missing some of their abilities. Please report these on GitHub so they can be fixed. This will be a beta thread until a few days pass with no major bug reports, at which point I will close the previous version thread and mark this thread as stable.

In addition, azum4roll, with help from @pineappledan, has also implemented (2-22) Proposal: Integrate Enhanced Naval Warfare into VP (with modifications). Avast, ye lategame pirates!

Finally, @seroperson has fixed a caching issue that should fix a lot of desyncs in multiplayer, and implemented a warning to indicate when a desync has occurred, both of which should aid in future multiplayer stability, and @axatin has fixed another pesky Deal AI bug with impossible peace treaty deals.

Thanks again, everyone!

As I explained in the previous version thread, I have decided not to delay the next VP Congress Session (#6), which begins on October 1. Explanation below:
Spoiler :

Delaying the next VP Congress session would only be helpful if it were for the benefit of the players. There's roughly three weeks remaining until players would actually be voting, which I think is enough time for playtesting even with 4.0 around the corner. We had extra playtesting time this phase, and the instability has only been a thing for the past two weeks.

Proposers seem to have a lot of ideas already prepared, and if not, the garbage cleaning, as Stalker aptly put it, is a particular issue with this version, not the plan for the future. I was anticipating only a few hotfixes, not the 14 that ended up being needed, although the pace was rushed because I wanted to prepare for the 4.0 release, which will make modifications to the database for the upcoming session and any future ones much simpler (in addition to fixing numerous bugs).

I'm further disinclined to delay because there are clearly some major balance issues that were raised recently, such as tribute, difficulty bonuses, and multiple proposals for espionage, and I'd like for the community to have some say on this sooner rather than later. Selecting only proposals with widespread consensus would require voting to be sure. Estimating is the kind of contentious judgement call I'd rather not make.

Changelog:

Online as of 10:14 PM CST. Not savegame compatible.

Spoiler 4.1 - 4.1.2 Changes :
Version 4.1 has been released. Link above has been updated.

Changelog:
Code:
General
- Policy table CapitalYieldPerPopChangeEmpire (used by Statecraft) can now stack
- The game now remembers the highest total population a player has ever reached (not used yet)
- Reduced log spam

Balance
- Units can now capture undefended civilian units by moving into the tile even if they have already attacked this turn
    Also applies in Community Patch Only
- Cooldown on making peace after declaring war on a City-State now scales with game speed
    Since it's currently 1 turn base, this means 3 turns on Marathon and 1 otherwise, since it rounds down

AI
- Major tactical AI improvements from ilteroi
- Greatly improved AI handling of garrisons (shouldn't abandon cities and citadels anymore)
- Refactored Tactical AI cache to clean itself up properly, reducing memory consumption and lategame crash potential
- Improved AI early expansion prioritization a bit
- Removed opinion penalty towards other players if AI denounces them (was -35)
    Buffed opinion penalty for denouncing the AI to -50 (was -35)
    After an AI's denouncement expires, if the other player has not denounced the AI and isn't untrustworthy:
       AI will immediately reevaluate its approach (without a denouncement penalty)
    These changes are intended to reward humans who successfully appease the AI instead of counter-denouncing, making recovery of relations more possible
    They also make the AI a bit more strategically flexible diplomacy wise
- If a Declaration of Friendship is signed, any existing denouncement is now immediately removed
    This mostly affects the IGE function to force a DoF: a denouncement and DoF cannot be active simultaneously now
    However, since Afraid AIs will usually agree to DoFs even if they don't want one, this can be used to clear a denouncement

City Governor Fixes
- Fixed a bug that caused specialists to be overvalued
- Fixed city governor not being able to handle the case when specialists consume less food than normal citizens
- City governor will focus more on growth in smaller cities (if default focus is used)

Other Bugfixes
- Fixed a crash when running forge GW mission, due to improper handling
- Fixed units not being able to promote
- Fixed incorrect or missing icons & displays in several places
- Fixed Spain starting with a Conquistador instead of a Pathfinder (lol)
- Multiplayer desync fixes from seroperson relating to diplomacy/deals
- Fixed many tactical AI bugs
- Simplified code for Diplomacy AI reevaluations of players & fixed several reevaluation bugs
- Fixed Boarding Party promotions not being available
- Fixed incorrect international trade route gold amount

The beta should now be playable again. Sorry for the wait, there was a lot to fix.

---
Version 4.1.2 has been released. Link above has been updated.

Changelog:
Code:
- Fixed Reformation buildings being unbuildable
- Minor database cleanups

Online as of 3:04 AM CST on October 2. Savegame compatible with 4.1 versions.

Spoiler 4.2 - 4.2.5 Changes :
Version 4.2 has been released. Link above has been updated.

Changelog:
Code:
- Resources table now has a TechImproveable column which determines when a resource is owned
   It is equal to the reveal tech for Strategic Resources
   For luxuries, it is equal to the tech required to build an improvement connecting that luxury
     So, e.g., Tobacco would have Calendar as its TechImproveable
   This fixes the bug where settling on a resource allows you to use it before you have the required tech
   new lua function: bool IsResourceImproveable(ResourceTypes eResource) - in LuaPlayer
- Updated Communitas map to 2.6.4
- Unique Spanish Inquisitor unit is now called "Inquisition", is hidden from Civilopedia/civ select screen again, has special text :)
- New Huns Focus Fire promotion now has a new icon
- Declaring independence as a vassal no longer applies warmongering penalties
- Tactical AI improvements
   Improved handling of ranged garrisons
   Improvements to Venetian City-State purchase logic (less likely to pick protected City-States)
   Units will attempt to upgrade more often
   Tactsim fixes
- Attempted to fix Dreadnought units lacking animations and thereby sinking like the Titanic
- Attempted to fix air units not being able to attack units
- Fixed a crash during the Horde quest
- Fixed unintended double time to remove features
- Fixed UNW text referencing population requirements
- Fixed missing Great Diplomat unit panel & strategic monopoly text

- Fixed Polynesian military units being unable to embark
- Fixed Siege units not being able to get Cover II
- Fixed Naga-Malla stats
- Fixed Ordo having no pillage gold
- Fixed Can Move After Attack promotion staying on upgrade
- Fixed Attack Submarine having Dreadnought model
- Fixed Chartarium having an Art slot instead of a Writing slot
- Fixed a rounding error for resource monopolies
- Fixed bugs & inconsistencies with denouncements, closing embassies
   Denouncements should now always cancel Defensive Pacts, like ending a DoF prematurely does
   Embassies are now removed when vassalage ends, like Open Borders

Online as of 4:07 PM CST on October 4. Not savegame compatible.

Version 4.2.1 has been released. Link above has been updated.

Changelog:
Code:
General
- Added MajorBlocksMinor table, which blocks a City-State from appearing if the specified major civ is present ingame
    By default, Kabul will no longer spawn if Persia is ingame, since Kabul is on Persia's city list
    This can be used to add the cities of major civs as extra City-States, should anyone want to do that
    This required overriding and replacing the engine's random selection of civs and City-States
    Huge thanks to IanE9 for discovering the solution that made this possible!

- Added BALANCE_CITY_STATE_TRAITS CustomModOption (disabled by default)
   When enabled, City-States of each trait type are distributed evenly in a 1 / 1 / 1 / 1 / 1 ratio
   Prevents scenarios where City-States of a certain type aren't available at all
   The ratio might be off if not all City-States have settling locations on the map

- Added BALANCE_CITY_STATE_PERSONALITIES CustomModOption (disabled by default)
   When enabled, City-States of each personality type are distributed evenly in a 1 / 1 / 1 / 1 ratio
   If combined with BALANCE_CITY_STATE_TRAITS, each pool of City-States with a common trait will have a separate even distribution

- Added FixedPersonality column to MinorCivilizations table
   Can be used by a modder to force a given City-State to always have a specific personality type
   If a FixedPersonality City-State is selected, it applies after and overrides BALANCE_CITY_STATE_PERSONALITIES' randomization

- Blocked Barbarian Encampments from replacing unowned GPTI or Landmarks (removes a rare, but unfun lategame nuisance)

- Communitas map updated to version 2.7
   fewer hills and trees
   slightly more plains
   as a side effect, more coal and less oil (!!)
   ivory also has a higher chance to appear
   that said, 200% of 1% is still only 2%...

- Code cleanup


AI
- Improvements to early AI policy & tech choices
- +10 opinion bonus to the modifier for having a Diplomat now applies to Scientific AIs, not Diplomatic ones
    Rationale: Scientific civs have more reason to be happy that you aren't spending your time sabotaging them
- Austria AI now has Culture Victory as a secondary victory pursuit

UI
- Influence from Diplomatic Missions now includes the +20% boost from a forum quest in the tooltip

Bugfixes
- Fixed a longstanding vanilla bug shortening build times for improvements
   Shortened build times by 100 across the board to compensate for the fix
- Fixed Imperialism not granting +1 Movement to naval units
- Fixed Archaeologist being Faith purchasable without the required belief
- Fixed tech icon issues & wrong descriptions for techs which shorten build times
- Fixed Horse Archer having the wrong PrereqTech
- Fixed Mandekalu Cavalry having a city penalty
- Fixed Camel Archer help text
- Fixed Nuclear Submarine having 50 CS instead of the intended 60

Online as of 11:32 PM CST on October 8. Savegame compatible with 4.2...probably.

Multiplayer compatibility issues are likely with 4.2.1 as the new civ/City-State selection logic is untested.

---
Version 4.2.2 has been released. Link above has been updated.

Changelog:
Code:

- Added BALANCE_ENCAMPMENTS_SPAWN_ON_VISIBLE_TILES CustomModOption
    Provides the ability to disable Barbarian Encampments spawning on visible tiles
- Fixed quest cooldown for City-States decaying at twice the intended speed when not at war (longstanding bug)
- Fixed Anti-Warmonger Fervor not applying when making ranged attacks (longstanding bug)

- Made it impossible to put 0 of something (Gold / GPT / resources) in the trade screen

- Improved airport icon
- Various text fixes

Online as of 6:54 AM CST on October 22. Savegame compatible with 4.2 versions. Some of these changes may negatively impact performance; please mention if turn times are unreasonably long.

Installed the 4.0, and launched a game, and seems like Promotions are messed up, at least for me; launched only VP enabled, no additional mods, and most of the promotion trees are empty, Recon unit can only pick promotions from trailblazer line, only Siege seems normal? And anti-air has couple promotions

Seems like the ENW integration works at first glance, in tech tree I'm seeing all the new ships.

One thing about tech tree - converting production to defense has some kind of building icon instead of the silver shield. Not sure if it's just me, and i need to try reinstalling the mod, or it's general with this version.

the promo tree UI does not necessarily reflect the actual promos available in-game. The tree UI recreates what it thinks the tree SHOULD look like, does not read the actual structure in all cases. To help devs you may want to clarify if its just the tree UI that messed up or the actual selection of promos on eligible unit that can't be done. The former is a minor issue, latter kinda major.

I run around a bit with Pathfinder, and could only pick the Trailblizer line promos, and tried enabling IGE, and adding a level to starting warrior, and i could not pick any promotion, and it would not let progress me to next turn normally, as game wanted me to pick a promotion, but nothing was pickable. Did not test much beyond that, but seems like the actual structure is same as the promo trees
 
i never access this UI...ever.
i rarely do, i've been playing this mod so long now I know most of the promo paths by heart... but I can imagine its helpful to newer players trying to figure things out the first few times

There is no reason not to. It gives you a clear picture of the promotion path. Without it you will be guessing about what set of promotions will open up next.
 
UNIT_GUIDED_MISSILE and UNIT_ROCKET_MISSILE should not have promotion PROMOTION_AIR_SIEGE_1
 
i rarely do, i've been playing this mod so long now I know most of the promo paths by heart... but I can imagine its helpful to newer players trying to figure things out the first few times
I'm a new player I've looked at them at least a couple of times in my latest game.
