Pie, I'm presently playing PAE V beta 2 patch 2 as Rome. I have played to the 90s BC and am almost finished the tech tree. I have noticed that some techs do virtually nothing, no new units or upgrades, no buildings or wonders etc. For example Astrology (which only allows access to Manticism) and Road Maps that doesn't give anything! If you are going to do further enhancements to this mod, how about making such techs worthwhile or omitting them. For example, Road Maps could give +1 road movement. Just a suggestion.

with last changes too? I've played 150 turns in the same before game and still haven't problems...

Yes, perhaps the last reason of possible never-ending turns! But with the help of the German forum users (as test players), I hope to debug it very soon.

Hi jimmy, ehm Astrology is just an important theme I wanted to add in the tree to know, when Astrology was "born" and it is of course a required tech for Manticism that gives +1 happiness. In BTS, I think, there are also some Techs, that just points to another important tech.

Road Maps activates an important python feature: no black fog of war!
I have to change lots of strategy texts, I know.... lots of open work....

yes, scenarios have fixed CIVs included. only empty scenarios can be customized correctly.

Hey Rual, I got something for you to translate in the text-tool (only 2 texts) ;)

I think I will change it to "original".

edit: what means alulu?

edit2: I've uploaded a new Patch 2 version with corrected Marodeur. I hope so!

Pie, one question (could be a suggestion). Sine i havent played Hittites a lot, and my mate (who i think knows a lot a bout them) told me about their history and recently started playing this mod cus of that. He told me that they had the most law abiding society at that time. Do they have any buildings that additionally reduce maintenance? If they dont is there a reasonable way to add it and would it be good to have that thing?

hm. you can manage your system via civics.
And I don't think that maintenance would be a hittite property, because their fully expanded empire didn't last very long. Quote: "Civil war and rivalling claims to the throne, combined with the external threat of the Sea Peoples weakened the Hittites and by 1160 BC, the Empire had collapsed."

It is strange that a big and strong empire gets completely lost!?!

You don't update text files in this patch :confused:
Had no time for that, this will be included next time. And before that, I will put the BTS-Eventtexts online too.

Yes, it's on my list. but there are so many things to do before!

Thorgal is busy with his maps, I am busy with modding and Keinpferd is busy in his RL for the next months.

At the moment, there is noone who is managing this.

Of course.

The latest patch from 22.10.2012 is just a stability patch with debugging the Marodeur (endless turns (rotating globe)). I am waiting for test users and after positive tests, it will be the official 2nd patch and I will include all other important user feedbacks (granary for rice and new Spanish texts).

StanStill: What if you make one for PAE?

I think I have a map for that already!

I can help you with first steps and be there for questions.
Interested?

edit: oh! ok, I think I do have it from Romulus. anyway, are you interested that this scenario gets included into PAE officially?

ah, yes. It's the map.

Have look at my files. The origin scenario was from DoctorG and the Civs and Map was updated by Keinpferd. I would change some rivers to bigger ones (with coasts instead of the small river) and a few narrow parts with rivers to conquer by land units. The text file is for any changes on cities or for new city names. Just check it out.

Christinaity spread can't be stopped with theocracy or amphictyony. Religious victory now is impossible with other religion that is not christianty (98%) :eek:

Edit: And removes other religion from its holy city. Better than Religious ejector :confused:

The reason was. On later games (about 200 years after christianity was found) the founder of christianity wins automatically, because this religions spreads in almost every cities. Judaism, Hindu and Buddhism are excluded.

but yes, I will try to damp this fact with a certain civic....
