    I have read many good things about this mod.
    Does it work in multiplayer, if, both players have it installed?
    Or will the data be transferred to the 2nd computer, like a perfectworld2 map?

    I have the BAT mod installed, and it doesn't do multiplayer at all.
    I am really looking for a good mod to use in multiplayer, not just for myself.
    Yours looks great! :)

    I downloaded it today, and it is working perfectly in multiplayer!
    Thanks! The BAT couldn't do that!

    When I use this mod, the other leaders don't have any options to choose when I speak with them. This isn't just when meeting them either, it's whenever I try to talk with them.

    There was a bug in an older version of BUG that we fixed a ways back. I'm pretty sure it was fixed before 4.4 though.

    That's pretty odd. Never seen anything like it myself.

    Did you merge in an older version of BUG to PIG or have one installed to CustomAssets?

    I'll try reinstalling and get back to you.

    Edit: Works now. For future reference, all I did was reinstall (though no settings were different).

    Glad you got it working again.

    I didn't realise people were still playing this mod.

    It has a cool name. I think that's a major draw for it.

    I've just been reading through the list of changes for your mod karadoc. I really do need to try it out (I did say I would - I just haven't been playing BtS much this year).

    I really like some of your ideas/solutions in the mod.

    Unless you're really keen to start playing BtS again as soon as possible, I suggest that you wait until I release the next version. The current version is alright, but I think the next version is going to be really good. I've been focusing almost exclusively on the AI recently, and I think I'm making a lot of good progress. :)

    I love this mod.

    I also like the AI additions in karadocs mod.


    Not to be picky or demanding, but it would be nice to see karadoc's AI improvements added to PIG. Just my 2 cents...

    karadoc and I have discussed that a bit. It gets a bit tricky because some or many of the changes are designed with the rest of the mod in mind.

    I've used it in MP. Haven't gotten through a whole game but that had nothing to do with PIG, we just haven't happened to get through a whole game.

    I haven't done any testing in MP.

    I would guess you're a bit more likely to run into problems if you enable the more unusual features like Influence Driven War. Other than that though, any OOS would likely be from the base game.

    Well, there have been times when Better AI and/or BUG had some OOS problems, but those were mostly ironed out. In any case, I don't use any of the more unusual options- when playing multiplayer we play a pretty vanilla game but with the balance changes of PIG. So I can't speak to what would happen under Influence Driven War or some of the other things available, but we didn't see any OOS errors at all the last time we tried playing.

    Good point. BUG and better ai could cause OOS (they're easily the biggest components of this mod). Especially because PIG doesn't have the very latest versions.

    thanks again, keep up the good work.
