:thumbsup: This looks amazing. Thank you Pie !
I had to fix some bug, so please install patch 6.7 now!

main bug fix is:

1) if you have deactivated single unit animation (graphic options), you'll now see eg 8 hoplites instead of 1 unit. 4 of them will now fight simultanously instead only one by one.

2) city culture infos for XXXL map was missing. now you can play till the end....


(the smaller units and their multiple fighting animation looks really, really good....)
Thanks again Pie :grouphug:

Do I see a content gap that we can fill for PAE VII ???

Please send me a list of the open and unfinished spoken quotes from your technology tree ? I have a plan.:egypt:
I work with a vulnerable wheelchair who's seeking some diversion since the pandemic has ended her social life.
She needs a hobby that interests her that she can pursue in house. She has a strong, clear and emotional voice.

My program might be able to find you many voices to read these quotes into their phone and send the sound file to me and to us all :love:
Oh yeah!
Yes, then it will be definetly PAE VII ! :)

ok, I will write down every missing quote. does your friend do it in other languages too or only in english?

And: are u able to do some videos too? if not, it's ok. I just wanted to try to add a simple dds graphic file instead of a video... could propably work too.
Hi Pie :egypt:

This is something she wants to do !
She lives with Cerebral Palsy and I'm one of her care aides.

Movies ? :smoke:Yes I could make some video content for PAE VII. Love to try !
.. but I think you should definitely put in dds images in place until a video gets produced.

I have less time to obsess over these new movies so they will take longer to make. PAE3 was a long time ago :eek:
Thanks for the Update Pie, I think Hunter with strenght of 4 will be a bit overpowered imo. I also wanted to point that in the last games I have played Celtic and Nordic religions struggle to appear in the game early, they come a bit late when almost all nordic and celtic civs have adopted greek or phoenician religions, it kills a bit the flavor. Greetings and keep up the great work! :goodjob:
About hunter: lets have a try. with only ST 3 they even get killed at once very often.
During a game I played a few updates ago the barbarians warriors and basket archers never healed. I don’t know if this was a glitch or by design. The other civs permanently reduced the strength of the barbarian defenders from 2 to 1 (or less after unsuccessful assaults) and quickly captured most of the barbarian cities and formed large empires early the game. The game was very fun.

Even with the reward halved, captured treasure is still better off being sold in the cities of another civ rather than sold in your capitol. You are guaranteed a set amount instead of a random amount after a long tedious haul. I would suggest that it be reversed. You get a random amount in another civ’s city and a set amount or much larger random reward in your capitol.
About hunter: lets have a try. with only ST 3 they even get killed at once very often.

Actually I think Hunter with ST3 is very strong, if you play with them carefully you get tons of promotions making them formidable even against later units like Axemen. IMO they should have ST2 and a BIG bonus against animals, this way they would be very efficient doing their job without being overpowered against proper military units.
treasure: ah, thx, I will reduce the trade bonus in foreign cities

hunter: ok, then I will reduce its strength again and give em some more bonus to melee.

about not healing units: in foreign terrain you cant heal without healing units or promotions.
Regarding the healing glitch--These were barbarian units in barbarian cities. They never healed. I would come across barbarian cities were the defenders were permanently damaged from previous unsuccessful assaults by the AI (for example, some were stuck at .2 strength). The only barbarian units that would heal would be hunters. The glitch was actually very cool as it really helped the AI expand and stay competitive with me playing as Rome. The AI ... especially in the Middle East ... was able to quickly capture almost every barbarian city early in the game using just hunters and basket archers. When I updated to Patch 6.5.1, the glitch went away and now the AI is back to slowly expanding their empires.
hm... I didn't change anything with Barbarians. I just changed the appearance of Barbarian cities by turn! They come very late now! So the AI has lots of time to found cities now. this should be easier now for the AI because not every AI could capture a neighbour Barbarian city and stayed small.
After instaling the 6.7 patch, I get a lot of error while loading the mod. A lot of "python exception" boxes pop up:
"Traceback (most recent call last):"
"File <string>, line 1, in?"
"File <string>, line 52, in load_module"
"File CvEventInterface, line 13, in?"
"File CcEventManager, line 84, in?"
"No module named Diadochi_JD"
"Failed to load python module CvEventInterface"
And another one that's labeled as "XML Error":
"Tag: UPKEEP_NON in Info class was incorrect. Current XML file is: xml/GameInfo/CIV4CivicInfos.xml"
Afterwards, the mod loads, but when I jump into a game I get a myriad error boxes, also labeled a "python exception".
Hi Pie, first of all, thx for this awesome mod!
This last patch is great so far, i didnt get into it too deep, but i find some visual bugs, prob cause of the smaller units and improvments,
some units and resorces are bigger then the rest, so far chariot units, cedar trees are much cedars looks like Sequoia trees and chariots like giants :)))
Hi Rev: it sounds that the installation is broken. please try to download the patch again. or just unzip again. perhaps it happened when copying the files into the original PAE folder of the BTS mods and you didn't say replace files. then windows keep them twice.

hey Jag: thx, it was the light chariot and the maryannu. I'll change that! about the trees: it is intended to be that big to see the difference. but ok, I make them smaller and I have to color them darker... otherwise you can't the the ceder wood.
You're now able to download PAE 6.8 !

I hope everything works!

see patch notes of 6.8 in the first post.
Tnx for new patch Pie! Looking great so far, but I have a question about automatic trade routes between your own cities, it seems that this feature not working, when I try to make automatic trade route between two of my cities it doesnt gives me an option for a second city route to make.
