    STONE AGE
    version 2.50 beta​


    THIS IS A BETA VERSION OF THE LASTEST STONE AGE MOD. I think it's cleaned of bugs but we never know. Let's give it a try to see if something is missing ;)

    Please, download Stone Age 2.50 beta version. It has plenty new stuff and a new DLL.

    TO UPGRADE ... just Delete the old Stone Age Mod folder. By default, it should have this route: "C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\" (it may change if you installed Civ4-BTS it in a different location). After that, follow the Installation Instructions because everything is similar. :mischief:

    INTRODUCTION

    Let’s see, this is the second version of Stone Age Mod for Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword 3.17. It has been so long since the first version was released so I hope you enjoy this one :).

    Let me tell you the idea. It’s 1 000 000 BC. You start as a small tribe. Everything is new for you and your people. You must learn the secrets of nature and lead your tribe through a dangerous way of life. Wild animals are almost everywhere. It’s about you to take advantage of it. In your way you may find other tribes who are developing as well as you. Year will go by and you will have to fight to get a space on Earth. You must be careful with nomad tribes. They could be kind with you, but once you turn them your back, you might regret it if you are not prepared.

    Years still come and go. Only strong enough tribes will prevail. Nomadic lifestyle will stay in the past. New challenges approach your empire. Will you be proficient enough to lead your empire through the test of time? This is the real challenge! This is YOUR CHALLENGE :trouble:.

    Stone Age Mod, as it’s name describes, divides the early game in 3 old (but also interesting) eras:

    • Paleolithic
    • Mesolithic
    • Neolithic

    This MOD is different from others I've found before. You can continue your normal gameplay after reaching the Neolithic era. Some few changes to original game, but they are to keep its balance. You can read the Stone Age documentation file to have a detailed features of this mod.

    This Mod has been specially designed for long games at Marathon Speed. It also fits well with Epic game speed and should not have problems in Normal or Quick games.

    Here is the list with the current Stone Age mod features (NOT UPDATED YET):

    Are we suposed to start with 25 techs? Or did I do something wrong. Or is it something I got because I was playing Hapshetsut (Egypt) on a Giant map at Noble level?

    Looks good so far.

    you have to go into the custom game menu and select the eras earlier than ancient.

    I played about 140 turns and liked it alot. then things got really jerky graphically, and then CTD.

    Apart from that it was interesting and moved along nicely. I want to play again, so I hope the CTD is fixable.

    Very interesting, I gave up when I could not build the Hindu religious shrine because I already had the maximum number of wonders in the city. Hindi was my state religion and I really needed the money :)

    You must start a game in CUSTOM GAME and select the Era from which you want to start. Thanks for answering Mice :goodjob:

    Yeah ... sorry about that mistake. I made several tests on Marathon game speed but not in others. :rolleyes: I've already fixed that bug. Now you can play at any Game Speed mode without getting problems ;)

    Thanks you man!! Bug has been fixed ;)

    Sorry for the inconvenient :sad: I just didn't though about it. :mischief: I've already changed the value to Unlimited so you won't have to worry about that. :D Original Civ4 game doesn't have that limit so I will remove it.

    Please ... download version 1.02 to make use of these changes. :rolleyes:

    The mod plays out really well. I had a great first 400 turns at Epic speed. I really like techs that reveal resources.

    I did a stone axeman rush on Shaka and rexed through to sedentary life when I could build cottages (I think it was that tech) Then the game blended well into the ancient era with standard worker techs. The Gatherer unit before that is clever.

    Zara just DOWed me so I have to defend. It really plays like a standard game with an early settler rush to get to this point, except I had 400 turns of interesting play to get to this point.

    I can not seem to download it. It says "You have reached the download limit for free-users. Would you like more?". Just one question. Did you add anything like a moving camp or city? Or are they all like default Civ?

    You should have already downloaded something from Rapidshare today. I'll better upload the file in some other websites later today. As soon as it's done, I'll update the forum with the new links. ;)

    No, the game works as default Civ does :rolleyes:. I think it would be nice if you could appear in some other place every specific numbers of turns. I'll take your idea and try to figure it out a way to do it :crazyeye:. It will take some time but I think that would be a great difference :goodjob:

    Well we are going to try and add the Mongol camp to act like a pre-city in WoC is why I asked. I was hoping you had made one already to save some work.I am starting to add just a Neolithic era now as well.

    Ya I did not download anything from rapidshare ever in my entire life I think. So don't know. I will be interested to see when possible.

    Edit: Now it is allowing me to download the mod.

    Why do you need Archery for bronze working?

    Anyway, may I suggest to rename archery to fletchery (like a more global term)? It could lead to carpentry/enable something more :).

    I just wanted to say you put a lot of work to this. I am impressed with how much has been done. I just do not like the the beginning vanilla Civilization tech tree, but other than that you have really did a lot. Good Job:goodjob:

    Well, I just didn't want somebody to get Sedentary Lifestyle, choose Mining Tech and rush for Bronze Working (specially AI). AI many times forgets to get Archery before Bronze Working and that leaves it defenseless :sad:. Other reason is that I just wanted you to have some war with the Stone Age units :D Carpentry may be a good idea ... thanks for it :goodjob:

    I had to make some little (maybe not really little :crazyeye:) changes there to get some balance into the game (like costs, tech and inflation). Thanks for your opinion :goodjob:

    Yeah ... Thank you for that too :D

    I am greatly enjoying playing this mod. It really extends the interesting period where civs are truly different not just copies as occurs in the latter game.

    There is and event which gives you a camp and road on dear before you can build these things yourself. I suspect it is because hunting in vanilla allowed the camp.

    Have you changed the automated worker actions? I specify in the options that I don't want them to chop down forests but they do.

    Gatherers upgrade to settlers, shouldn't that be workers? I captured a city with 3 of them and had to delete them all because I could not afford to upgrade them.

    When you get Sedientary Lifestyle or Agriculture (the free tech I choose) the gatherer's work on non-forest terrain stops giving +1 food. Design? It caused a number of my cities to starve while I built workers to irrigate.

    Upss ... i'll take a look at the events XML files and update them (haven't touch them yet). Thank you :goodjob:

    Hmmm that's strange. I haven't changed anything related to AI behavior (except the BETTER AI DLL). I'll take a look on the XML files again and try to solve that for the next version ;)

    Yeah ... I'm sure you should have though that was really stupid :crazyeye:. They upgraded to workers when I was developing the Mod. But when you discovered Sedentary Lifestyle you could upgrade the Gatherers to Workers for just 30 gold each one so it would be some kind of cheat if somebody built many gatherers without using them just planning to get workers faster and cheaper. I just didn't want to leave that posibility. I haven't found an alternative solution yet. I'm planning to start working on the Source Code to get more interesting stuff. Maybe then I could find a way :crazyeye:.

    Yeah, I did that because from there you won't live eating grains and a Seed Camp should not give the same amount of food of a Farm nor a coin (that was just to let you grow on earlier eras). Well ... it's hard at the beginning. Maybe I should find an alternative solution. Hmmm, maybe I could set a higher food cost to grow on Neolithic and later eras and let farms give 2 more food (instead of 1). The Seed camp would only lose the coin. What do you think about that?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BTW ... Thanks for playing and enjoying the game :D

    The techs still seem to come a bit too quick on Epic. I'm going to try marathon to see if that feels better.
