    But as you say, it's ahistorical because by 500 AD you have lots of new nations arriving on the scene which aren't represented in PAE. I personally see no benefit to extending PAE further with the same civs, but then my PC won't take me much past 1AD so I never see the late game anyway. But an early medieaval game or scenario would for me include the Byzantines, Arabs, Bulgars, Franks, Goths, Mongols, etc. You still have the Persians but most of the other ancient empires are gone. And Rome would be split in two.

    do not forget that in 400 AD there was the invasion of the Visigoths of Alaric, Rome was divided into two empires in 395 AD after the death of Theodosius I, the Byzantine Empire was born in 395 AD. The Mongols invade Europe in 1200, I would like to arrive in the year 1000.
    the Goths are already there in 230 AD, the francs were born in 200/300 AD
    a fantastic mod as pae is a sorrow for me, which after 395AD becomes anti-historical.

    The biggest problem in adding CIVs in CIV is, you can play them from the beginning. So I'd hate to see the Francs, Goths, Byzantines, Arabs, etc.. 4000 BC.

    And I wouldn't say PAE becomes antihistorical... I'd rather say, I mirror parts of these times because scripting in CIV has limits.

    I could add those new coming CIV as unplayable CIVs, arising surprisingly with plenty of units destroying all cities in their range. I think, this would be more frustrading and unlogical as imagine that the Gauls now could be the Francs....

    Perhaps a renaming of existing CIVs would fit? But even this can't be done without SDK.

    you could make civilizations change names after a certain date, and then insert the barbarian invasions and islam as an event in 600 AD

    I know: but this is a only possible via SDK and changing the dll. I am not ready for that.
    The barbarian invasion is still active with Huns and Vikings... if you play with activated barbarians.

    I've got the damn foghorn bug again, after all this time. Was that ever figured out? Was it fixed before, or has it always been there, patiently waiting for whatever sets it off?

    A foghorn bug?!
    You mean you hear the foghorn and nothing happens? Perhaps a neighbor uses the horn when getting attacked from another neighbor. :)

    no, I once heard this too. I don't know when in detail, but I could imagine it happens when a AI declares war to another AI in some python stuff. I try to find out.

    Foghorn: I can't find something wrong. But I found out, there are some songs in EraInfos.xml that might have the horn included, I don't know: like AS2D_SONG_DIP_ME_EARLY_WAR

    I looked back through the forum, because I remember this from way back. Perhaps it's a vanilla bug. Who knows what sets it off, but the suggestion was that it can be got rid of by switching sound effects off and back on again, or just reloading. I've tried this and only seems to be a temporary fix.

    So, I tried "Europe XL 40 civs+cities" and christianity was founded 300 bc. Is there any way to stall this a bit? I believe brettschmitt was working on a fix for this in his "PAE Eurasia XL" map?

    Sorry, but Europe XL 40 Civs is not my thing.
    I'm working on a SpeedInfo for the Eurasia XL

    With the Europe XL you have to use the standard speeds from Fast to Marathon.
    Maybe the one I'm working on will fit for some of the other maps too. We could try that when it's out...

    Hello, I may be back at playing Pae VI once again. I took a break because I needed a little time stepping back from a Eurasia XL game where multiple wars had just been declared against me, and I usually take in those situations a few days to assess what to do (ragequitting, me? Of course not!:)). The little break turned into a 6 months hiatus, but I may be ready to saddle up again.

    So I looked what's new and the result is that I translated the changelog from here : PAE_VI_Patches (14/11/19); because why not. It may not be useful, and I remember that I talked about tackling the Civilopedia's entries, but I was in the mood as well as enjoy having access to that sort of infos. It authentically makes me want to play

    In english:

    The translation is rather poor, in part because I did it "blind" without knowing exactly what each point is about. Still I thought it would be better than nothing. Mod creators, I hope this text isn't an inconvience to your works. I apologize if I disturb some programme.

    Huch! Manarch, THIS IS GREAT WORK! :)
    Just fully in time! Because this Friday I planned to put 6.1 to this forum and didn't translate it yet :) ha! fantastic!

    even in French....great! ... is there a main French CIV forum? like civforum.de for German speaking people?

    As far as I can see concerning french communities there is the modest https://civfr.com/forums/ Little activities, but they seem to organize events and tournaments. There's also a couple dedicated threads with a lot of posts in more general forums. I'm not registred yet in any of them, I landed directly here and I mean I still haven't explored this very forum beyond the Ancient Europe topic.
    Yeah, I could go make Pae known on civfr.
    Beware, my mastery of german and english is dodgy nowadays. There's surely mistakes in what I wrote. I'm still trying to re-read it.

    I forgot or never saw that :"WARNING: Anyone who plays PAE may not want to play the base game anymore!" and I concur, I'm foreseeing not touching BTS for the next 5-7 years.
    Thank you for mentioning me in the Readme file for Pae VI!

    A very nice mode indeed!

    Maybe I missed some context (e.g. some tech required), but playing a 40 civs map I don't seem to be able to set a Great General as a Military Instructor - is this a bug or a feature?

    Just completed my first playthrough (Romans, Eurasia XL, Marathon, Noble). Great mod!

    Before starting my second playthough, I thought I might give my first impressions.

    Overall, I loved it.
    There are a lot of great new features which make for challenging issues to tackle yet not overwhelming. I'm thinking of animals, natural disasters, commissioned mercenaries, cities statuses growth, resource cultivation, respawning fog of war, trading.
    The technologies, resources, units and buildings changes are diversified, interesting and balanced.
    The tech tree civ-specific technologies is a bit frustrating from a completionist approach but I guess it makes for an incentive to replay with other civs. So it's probably good too.
    The map was carefully crafted: many civs but not too many, room to expand for everyone, balanced.
    Oh, and the soundtrack is cool too. Kudos for that too!

    A few new behaviors were a bit itching. Moving on to them:

    (1) Revolts
    I was a bit overwhelmed by revolts.
    In the early game, I tried to expand quickly to claim as much territory as possible before stumbling into neighbors -- all the while monitoring my economy as to not crush it. In fact, my goal was not to dip below 30% science.
    Then, at some point, greek gods started to spread inside my borders.
    After a few turns, my citizens started to revolt because my civilization did not have a state religion. This often resulted in losing population as I could not afford to pay for revolutions to stop. The population loss resulted in a weaker economy. I was unable to build new improvements (as these cost money). I could not drag down the science slider further (or my citizens would revolt because of taxes).
    Hence, I was forced to adopt a state religion while my economy ground to a halt.
    After adopting the state religion, the other half of my empire revolted because the cities did not have the state religion! :)

    TL;DR: Revolts were a huge attention point in my playthrough. My economy was crushed because of them and I had to undergo quite a long stagnation to recover from them. Don't know if this is working as designed but I think it should be on the "watch list" wrt balance.


    (2) Animals Spawning
    I remember deers spawning on a deer resource on my cultural borders. This took me aback. I think it stopped once I improved the deer resource but it's something I delayed because I was unaware that improving the resource would stop the animal spawning on the tile. The way it works is not a bad thing per se, but because (i) it runs contrary to the way vanilla works with barbarians never spawning inside cultural borders, and, (ii) improvements cost money, it probably should be described and highlighted in the civilopedia. In fact, it seems there's no mention of it in either the 'Animals, Barbarians and Huns' or the 'Resources' subsections of the 'PAE Game Concepts' section of the civilopedia.

    TL;DR: More emphasis should be put in the Civilopedia with regards to how animals spawn.


    (3) Game speed
    It seems this part is still being worked on and is scenario-specific. My marathon game stopped after 1350 turns. My civilization was much more technologically advanced than any other. Still, I had barely entered the ' ~500 BC-Classical Era' part of the tech tree. I was going through my first golden age (which number of turns seemed appropriate for a marathon game). The revolutions (civics or religion changes) which I had to go through felt much too short given the game speed. I guess all that is being worked upon so I'm merely concurring with what others have already stated.
    In any case, I think the mod would benefit from providing a new game speed which would be 3x slower than Marathon.
    Right now, even with the meta knowledge acquired from one playthrough, the task of recreating a huge ancient empire (like the romans, greeks or persians did) does not seem achievable on the map/game speed I played. I think making it achievable would require both a game speed during which one can seize a technological advantage faster (marathon game speed on Eurasia XL tech-ing speed should probably be 3 times faster, or conversely, there should be thrice the number of turns) and units moving faster relative to map size/number of turns (i.e. either play not a huge map with marathon, or play a huge map with a speed slower than marathon).

    TL;DR: (1) Concurring with others that Eurasia XL/Marathon game speed still needs adjustment, and, (2) suggesting the addition of a new game speed 3x slower than Marathon.


    (4) Health & Happiness
    These were never a challenge in my game. I paid great attention to them as I'm biased towards these being deciding factors from other mods I've played (Revolution) and revolts were a ongoing trauma of my game as previously stated. But I don't remember being ever enticed to perform any action to keep my cities from being unhappy or unhealthy (such as preventing growth or devoting my empire 'resources' to acquire new luxury/health resources). This is different from vanilla ; from what I remember, one has to be careful about health/unhappiness even at noble difficulty, although, admittedly, it really becomes being a major challenge at higher difficulties.

    TL;DR: Felt like unhealthiness and unhappiness should be toned up a bit.


    Thanks for this great mod. I'll now start my second playthrough :)

    @Alex: Military instructiors are disabled in PAE to provide having 20 instructors in one city. Instead of getting an instructor, they are able to build certain buildings like heroic monuments, column, temples and steles of victory, triumphal archs etc. in time (tech tree) which provide XP bonus. This is more realistic then about 20 military instructors in a city (what really is possible in CIV and all the other mods). Besides, you can steal those victory signs (with a Supply Wagon) and put them into another city (eg capital), what really had happend: eg with egyptian obelisks.

    @Ben: thanx for your feedback!

    1) Revolts:
    now you know how to prevend from those revolts! Be sure, your cities have either no religion or one special religion. Now you know to plan putting a state religion in each city. Reason: people who don't have a religion and learn about religions in neighbor lands => want it!
    people who believe in other gods or don't have a chance to worhsip them => angry/sad/unheard? => they are part of an other community. => revolt

    So, now as you know that fact you should plan with that! But unbelievable that the revolution mod doesn't work with religion anger. I disliked the revolution mod so much, because you can have 1.000.000 happy faces, be the best emperor your citizen can proud of, but DO NOT found a fifth city! :D this crashed my whole empire. silly but true! I had to get to a next era to have 6 cities! fine.... since that, I keep myself at a great distance to this mod.

    2) oh ok, sure I can add a sentence into the pedia for that.

    3) The game speed for the Eurasia XL is in the making.... sorry for that, but stay tuned. It will get an own speed.

    4) I don't understand what you mean. In Vanilla there are no consequences when being unhappy or unhealty.
    In PAE cities are revolting or citizen will emigrate. If your cities are healthy and happy, nothing will happen. Why should anything happen?
    I know from the rev mod, that even if you have +10 happiness and +10 healthbonus, you may not even found a new city :D or get over (i don't know) pop 10 without a - eg aqueduct - otherwise your city won't stop revolting :D that's silly!
    In PAE just build canalisations or aqueducts if needed. Otherwise you don't need them! not every city in ancient era had aqueducts. only the very big ones, eg if you want a Pop 20 city.

    If you mean that there are too many resources that provide happiness or health, yes, that's true. But players don't want any missing. ;(
