    Official Forums

    We have moved to our own forums with the release of 1.31. Why? Well, for various reasons. Most notably the fact that we are unable to moderate the current forum, meaning we cannot:
    • Make a sticky thread.
    • Make subforums.
    • Edit each other's posts (so that other team members can update posts, rather than only the person who makes the thread!)
    • Moderate discussion (Combining posts/threads, editing troll posts, etc)

    By moving to a private forum, we gain all of those powers. We can also control the look of the forum; I feel Grey Fox has done an excellent job there. :goodjob:

    One thing I'm sure you are all wondering: Will we continue to post in and maintain this forum? Yes, we will, but we may not be as active as we previously were. If you want to ensure that we'll respond quickly, come to the new forum. ;)

    The new site has multiple subforums (including three! devoted entirely to modding) and is fairly well organized; Registration is very simple. This also means we don't have to yell at people for making so many new threads anymore. :p We hope to see you there. ;)

    Bugs and Balance will be handled on the new site and have specific subforums devoted to them. We will no longer maintain any stickied threads for them on this forum.

    I hope you still keep us updated here as well.
    (I prefere this Forum because I can inform me here also about the other mods)

    We'll be announcing patches, and will continue to link to them here as well. We won't be actively checking bug/balance reports here anymore; The new forum makes that far easier for us.

    I only wish that the layout would not be as messed up as it is. :(

    GF is working on that. Issue with the browser, as it works properly on others, but he thinks he knows how to fix it.

    Yeah I am going to fix it eventually. If you can however, I suggest not using Internet Explorer. Or try out Internet Explorer 9, I am not sure if the site works in that, but I am also not inclined to install it yet because I am not sure if I can test the site in the previous versions if I do that.

    Internet Explorer has always sucked and IE9 might be the first IE browser that is actually any semblance of decent, it might actually take the lead for a while if I understand things properly. But it's still in beta.

    If you can, use Firefox (or Palemon), Chrome (or Rockmelt), Opera or some other browser that doesn't totally suck until I've fixed everything in IE.

    Yeah, the host occasionally sucks. Not much to be done about that, sadly.

    well, considering that the original rife team is somewhat no longer developing the game, you might consider making a new thread about your suggestion and hope someone who still plays this game will pick it up and create a module -- or better, learn how to do them yourself :) it's not really that hard, and you should find some help in already released modules for RifE

    ( btw, welcome on the forums )

    Yes, that is the best thing to do because it is a lot of work

    well, there isn't any tutorial on how to make module for RifE specifically - it's standard BtS module with some extended xml loading and python support

    so, take this tutorial:
    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=234970
    with exception, that your module should be in "/Assets/Modules/NormalModules/"
    which should give idea about files

    i guess that's about as far as i can help you, i'm terrible at making tutorials or guides

    I don't want to come across as thick but I have been trying for many days, and many times for that matter, to check this new forum (http://greyfox.me/rife/) but every time I receive this error message:

    This site has been temporarily disabled, please try again later.

    Does anyone have any clue what is going on? Is the forum down permanently or?

    Grey Fox didn't pay the hosting bill. Now the site is down.
