"Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment. Steps to enlightenment brighten the way; but the steps are steep. Take them one at a time." Mod The purpose of mod is to add "depth" to RFC. My main aim is Marathon speed but as I lack time to test the speed everything is tested only in Normal. The major advantage of my modmod is Future Era taken from Next War scenario. Combined with Marathon modmod it's 1620 turns of fun! But there are many features which I missed in other mods. With additional speed for modern units blitzkrieg is finally (or again, if you liked civ2 [especially IIWW scenario]) possible. Handling bigger cities is much harder with additional unhealthiness (finally important!) and unhappiness (not as important as it used to be as you can beat it with expensive artists) but more rewarding. Full list of changes is below.

thank numerous people. Without them the mod would be never created or at least be a lot worse. Even worse, as some people would say First, I have to thank Rhye for creating such a great mod. Without him I would never come back to cIV Thanks to embryodead for continuing Rhye's work. Without him I would have no base to modify Neither last nor least thanks to Baldyr for unimaginable help. For PyScenario, motivation, etc. Man, I owe you I need to thank supercheese for his Specialist Enhancements which I really love Thanks to Leoreth for posting in this thread XD (and reading invisible text. And making a mod from which I can steal some ideas ) And of course thanks to Corossol whose RFCC gave me most of ideas.
