    When I finish UHV's for the Middle-earth mod, you will be able to implement them via XML here. :)

    Following this thread. :thumbsup:

    RFC GW 0.8 released.

    Full details for what are included will be in opening post.
    This is very much a work in progress and there are still a lot of things to fix. Aiming for release 1.0 to be much more complete and less buggy (1.0 will hopefully be out by the end of the year), however I wanted to at least have a release available to prove that I am actively working on this!

    You can get it here.
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/rfc-greek-world-revived/files/RFC Greek World Revived/RFC Greek World.7z/download

    This is the first time I have tried using sourceforge for downloading. Hopefully I uploaded it correctly.

    Here's an odd bug: the Germanics are spawning as rams for me instead of their special swordsman unit.

    I also noticed some barbs in Lybia that I know are supposed to be Camel Archers and spawned as the powerful late game Hun unit.

    I think what's going on is that adding the Vulture messed up the unit numbering the game uses to determine spawns. Its in Python and XML and they have to match. I don't remember much more beyond that, though I think the python file is literally Units.py

    I don't have much time right now but I'll see if I can find my old notes on adding units

    Nice job. I'm willing to help with coding UHV/UP if you like.

    That is exactly what happened. After uploading the new version I discovered that several units were mixed up. I had the Vulture listed at 22 in Const, but it should have been 17, so it mucked up all the units around it. I will upload the fix for it this evening.

    Any old notes you have for editing RFC Greek World would be great thanks.

    That would be great thanks. Though the UHVs aren't showing up in the victory screen. I'm not sure if this is just a display issue, or whether the entire UHV mechanic isn't functioning. :undecide:

    It seems to be an display issue. UHV does exist as a victory type in VictoryInfo.xml. You can take a look at VictoryScreen.py from other RFC mods how it is impemented.

    ok here are all the notes I have. Its not much:
    The first file are all the changes I wanted to make but didn't. Some are obvious bugs (e.g. "Yerushalem Yerushalem" on Israel's city map) while others are much more involved. Don't feel pressured to do anything about any of them if you don't want to. C2C stands for Cavemen to Cosmos, a mod from which I got art for things like olives, and wanted to get more art
    The second file were my UHV ideas, but I didn't put any coding into actually accomplishing them

    Great, will try and get that fixed soon, hopefully will be included in release of 1.0.

    That's great thanks. Will definitively use the UHVs and might try and implement some of the changes from the log, at least the ones which I know how to do!

    Patch for RFC GW 0.8 released
    Main fix = The correct units are spawning (no longer will barbarian Huns appear in Egypt or barbarian Legions appear in Turkey).
    Minor fixes = Phoenicians more likely expand into other parts of the eastern med. Hittites more likely to conquer Turkey. Egyptians spawn further south to represent the upper kingdom, and a barbarian city spawns to represent the lower kingdom. Independent cities Jericho and Catal Huyuk added.

    I am getting a "cannot open file as archive" error. Could you check if the .7z extracts properly?

    Sounds like it got corrupted at some point. I will try re-zipping it, and will re-upload it later today.

    Okay I re-zipped it, re-uploaded it, then downloaded it, and played it, and it now seems fine. So fingers crossed it will work for everyone else as well.
