Thank you, Green Light. I am playing!
Thanks for the fast response! Unfortunately I don't remember, where I changed the file. Does anyone have the original file ("..\python\screens\CvExoticForeignAdvisor.py") available for upload? I would like to avoid reinstalling BtS. Would it work to replace my file with an unaltered copy anyways?
Yes. It should work. All you have to do is to reinstall the HoF Mod, as that file is part of those Assets.
I have BTS patched to 3.13 and installed the HOF Mod but cheking the settings I see two red infos telling me the game is not vaild for the HOF.
The following must not be checked:
1. - no tech trading
The following must be checked:
2. - locked modified assets
What do I have to do to start the game in the right way to make it valid for submitting?
"Not valid for HoF" earnings are irrelevant for GOTM. If they annoy you then you can turn them off in the Options/HOF3 screen. Uncheck "Startup HOF Settings" and "Victory Screen HOF Settings"
They *should* be suppressed for xOTM start files. I suspect the start file doesn't have the correct parameter set to cause this to happen. But it will have no impact on your submission for this game.
Yes, my mistake.
Thank you for your quick reply.
Second culture expand did it for me...
do i need to save my game over the save i downloaded or do i save it as a different name
Save it as any name you like.
The darkened squares problem resolved itself when I chopped my first forest. I guess the game did another check on LOS when that happened.
G'Day, I'm totally new the the Forum and the xOTMs, this is probably a stupid Noob question, but I was trying to confirm that I had the right version of BTS, so I checked the "ABOUT THIS BUILD" option in the advanced section of the main menu and it said:
Civ Version: 313
Save Version: 303
Build Version: 184.108.40.206 (81539)
So do I have 3.13? I thought I did because when I try to "Check for Updates" in game it says there are no updates available...
To summarize my nooby naive question, can I just install the 3.13 HOF mod and be ready to be smashed in my very first xOTM?
You should be able to. However. there seems to be a lot of variation out there to trap the unwary - for example, if you have installed the better AI mod then you will have to remove it.
Thanks for the quick reply, I haven't installed any Mods or anything so I guess I'll just give it a bash thanks again
Apologies in advance for this newb question since I've never played with a Mod before...
If I save the game and come back into Civ4 later, do I need to reload the mod before I reload the save?
If you save the gamefile and then come back to pick it up another time...
a) if you click on the file to open it, the game will load, along with the mod, and you can play that way
b) if you start BtS and then try to load the game from within BtS it will tell you that it needs to restart with the HOF mod
You shouldn't have any issues either way IF you've already started the game and saved the file once?
Hope that helps?
Does this mean if I have Better AI installed in Warlords I need to remove it before I can play with this mod on BtS?
if you have betterAI installed in the custom assets folder, I don't believe you will need to, as the mod ignores anything in the custom assets...however, I'm not sure how the betterAI mod works to tell you for sure.
Makes perfect sense...thanks for the quick answer!
Well, I have the save and it opens great for me.
Hopefully I will be able to find some time to run some tests around all the holidays and get to the game after the new year.
Good Luck to everyone!
