Thank you very much, Xyth!

I love you too and all(!) PAE and CIV fans, because without you, PAE wouldn't have grown to such an exciting mod!

If that helps, it works like this (at least when I rewrote this concept):

Code:
```      if pWinner.isHasPromotion(iPromoLeader): iRandMax = 2 #50%
elif pWinner.isHasPromotion(iPromoLeadership): iRandMax = 3 #33%
elif pWinner.isHasPromotion(iPromoLoyal): iRandMax = 4 #25%
else: iRandMax = 5 #20%
if gc.getPlayer(pWinner.getOwner()).hasTrait(gc.getInfoTypeForString("TRAIT_CHARISMATIC")) and not gc.getPlayer(pLoser.getOwner()).hasTrait(gc.getInfoTypeForString("TRAIT_CHARISMATIC")): iRandMax -= 1
if pLoser.isHasPromotion(iPromoMercenary) and not pLoser.isHasPromotion(iPromoLoyal): iRandMax -= 1

if iRandMax > 1: iRand = self.myRandom(iRandMax, None)
else: iRand = 0```
So it's an OR but if both conditions are met, n is reduced by 2 altogether. I made this clear by using the word "jeweils" in German but obviously left out this essential word in the translation. Either way, you're right, it can be misunderstood easily. What about this one?

Apart from that, it should work just as it's described in the pedia.

Guys, be prepared to get your mind blown away - in a good way!!! Pie did it again... PAE V has again groundbreaking new features and mechanics that will rob you of all your free time. Be prepared to loose job, wife and mistress - and still play happily ever after...

So, wait, just one more turn,

Tschuggi

I almost lost my wife due to modding and researching....

mapview? what do you mean? an overview of maps?
Maps are the same, but with the big difference of included Starting Position Script from The_J, where you can choose CIV and leader you want and start on the correct position. the same for the number of opponents you choose.

This version was first necessary for scenarios because of the 150 leaders. Now it's time to make some....

mapview: I'll have a look again. perhaps it's already on my list... don't know
edit: oh, yes! I can remember. don't know if it's updated. mapview is another matter.

A bit slow in map creation, and gave me a Python exception to start off:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "PAE_Creation", line 3276, in assignStartingPlots
File "PAE_Creation", line 2193, in assignStartingPlots
File "PAE_Creation", line 2216, in getStartPlotInRegion
ValueError: best plot in region is null

(I am Gorgo the Spartan, mistress of many rocks. I'll see how it goes.)

for starters I highly recommend beginning with the scenarios... gives you the right historical feeling which a play now and some map cannot give you.

Enjoy,

Tschuggi

Hello. Great mod. I like the new mechanism espcially the food ressources spreading (even if it is a bit complicated for me. It should be automatised or make simplier).

Thanks you for your colossal work Pie !

I would like to play multiplayer. Someone ?
