    @ElCid0204 You won't see anything useful in SQL files because the game uses numeric IDs for boosts and another table to match them with techs and civs. I use an Excel file that has definitions of triggers and their relation to techs and civs. It's almost 1100 rows.
    To give you some idea below is a list of Boost Classes. It basically shows what the original game is capable of. Usually there's a subject given also (like a building type, unit type, etc.) X means that numeric value can be given. Thus with OWN_X_UNITS_OF_TYPE you can create many boosts for various amounts of different units. The number shows how many times a given class is used in current version of the mod (it totals to 585 as there are 117 techs and civs and each has assigned 5 different boosts to choose from).
    I also know how to add new custom boosts, however this requires first some programming in Lua. Anyway, I've already added a few and created a framework.

    @Infixo: I've created the first bunch of tech boosts. Which address shall I send them? Or just simply upload here?

    Here they are for techs in ancient era.
    There are 5 boosts for each tech, including the original one (white), those what you added already and I'm aware of (green) - there might be other boosts added by you - and finally the new ones (yellow). I've been trying to add such boosts what's harder to achieve, since IMO the original ones are so easy. Also tried to add more variety. I think for some you need to create new custom boosts code. (e.g. meet certain type of city states)
    Please check them and let me know your thoughts.

    I love this mod, it's really great, except for one thing...

    Sometimes I'll notice that a boost for a tech or civic relies on that same tech or civic being finished. For example, in the game I'm playing, the Eureka for Astrology was "Build a Holy Site" — except I can't build a Holy Site unless I already have Astrology. Is it supposed to work that way?

    Is anyone able to use this mod post patch? I continue to get a problem where the civics tree will not come up. I did not have this problem pre-patch. I've tried just this mod by itself and with other mods and continue to have the same issue.

    I'm sure there is a small edit that I need to make to get it to work -- curious if anyone has run into this.

    I figured out a simple fix and a more complex fix.

    Simple Fix -- copy the file CivicsTree.lua from the main game files into the MOD directory under the UI folder. This will allow for the civics tree to come up -- but it will show what is needed for the eureka to be met (ie, not fully hidden).

    Complex Fix -- do the simple fix above, then edit the file in the following fashion:

    At approximately line 740ish -- after the grouping:

    local boostText:string;
    if live.IsBoosted then
    boostText = TXT_BOOSTED.." "..item.BoostText;
    node.BoostIcon:SetTexture( PIC_BOOST_ON );
    node.BoostMeter:SetHide( false );
    node.BoostedBack:SetHide( false );
    else

    insert the following:

    -- GGEDIT START
    -- boostText = TXT_TO_BOOST.." "..item.BoostText;
    if CanShowTrigger(item.Index, true) then boostText = TXT_TO_BOOST.." "..item.BoostText;
    else boostText = Locale.Lookup("LOC_REUR_QUOTE_"..math.random(22)); end
    -- GGEDIT END

    ahead of

    node.BoostedBack:SetHide( true );
    node.BoostIcon:SetTexture( PIC_BOOST_OFF );
    node.BoostMeter:SetHide( false );
    local boostAmount = (item.BoostAmount*.01) + (live.Progress/ live.Cost);
    node.BoostMeter:SetPercent( boostAmount );
    end

    ===================

    So, in full, this section should read:

    if live.IsBoosted then
    boostText = TXT_BOOSTED.." "..item.BoostText;
    node.BoostIcon:SetTexture( PIC_BOOST_ON );
    node.BoostMeter:SetHide( false );
    node.BoostedBack:SetHide( false );
    else
    -- GGEDIT START
    -- boostText = TXT_TO_BOOST.." "..item.BoostText;
    if CanShowTrigger(item.Index, true) then boostText = TXT_TO_BOOST.." "..item.BoostText;
    else boostText = Locale.Lookup("LOC_REUR_QUOTE_"..math.random(22)); end
    -- GGEDIT END
    node.BoostedBack:SetHide( true );
    node.BoostIcon:SetTexture( PIC_BOOST_OFF );
    node.BoostMeter:SetHide( false );
    local boostAmount = (item.BoostAmount*.01) + (live.Progress/ live.Cost);
    node.BoostMeter:SetPercent( boostAmount );
    end

    ===================

    This line was in the original Civicstree file that needed to be ported over to the new Civicstree updated file for the patch. Making this insert will result in the random messages being used in "hiding" the true eureka requirements.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi there,

    This looks like a very interesting mod to me. I felt like with city state quests, eurekas/inspirations and now historic moments there was just one category too many quest type mechanics in the game. I looked for a way to eliminate eurekas and inspirations but this is even better (with th hide function). I'll give it a try as soon as I wrap up my current game and can free up time.

    Quick question: did you make any adjustments to account for the fact that the dedications relating to earnIng eurekas and inspirations are now slightly less powerful? At least I'd expect to earn fewer of them during and game because I won't be able to plan them. (Not sure if they were considered too stroganoff anyway and that a slight beef was welcome.)

    Also, I think the cqui is not compatible eith this but are other interface mods? You seem to have a better reports mod. Does that work with real eurekas?

    Many thanks again.

    1. No adjustments in dedications area. Number of boosts you will get depends on many factors, one of them being an option to hide / show them. But most of all how determined you are to get them. You will have to evaluate yourself, in the game, if those dedications are still op or not.
    2. It’s not compatible with CQUI anymore, due to R&F changes I had to make.
    3. Real Eurekas works with BRS with no problems, they are unrelated to each other.
