    "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.

    Credits
    I wish to 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 :p
    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 :p)
    And of course thanks to Corossol whose RFCC gave me most of ideas.

    Future plans
    Add +1health/specialist in environmentalism (too much typing for now ;) )
    Use existing UUs and UBs (possibly after complete change)
    Add "old" civs bonuses reserved for "new" ones (like faster workers) (after balancing "old" civs)
    Add new leaderheads and "relay race" of civs (Rome->Italy, Grece->Byz->Greece) (someday)
    Expand Unique Historical Quests (probably in new version)
    Include new independent "civs" (you guessed right- Poland)
    Religion changes (steal most things from RFCC)
    Add tons of UUs and Wonders ("...but it won't be today and it won't be you!")

    Interesting. I like the idea to give +1 speed with Industrialism, and am very curious how you will fit Poland in :)

    As independent cities and UU- Polish hussars. It should make German colonisation a bit harder, but "Poland" will be for some time the main enemy of Russia.

    It would be nice to see Hussars as available mercenaries as well. And if everything works out, Poland might even put an end to Germany's unrealistic expansion to the east.

    Doubt it. Still, it won't be very soon (at 0.0.3 maybe). Just now I need ideas how to balance early powerful civics (already changed Stonehenge's power to not give Egypt +100% hammers).

    Could a elaborate a little bit more? What civics do you consider overpowered, and for whom?

    I'll post ss with civics. China loves whipping which can be done now without slavery. Egyptian UHV is a lot easier with HR culture bonus. Generally speaking new civics are a lot stronger so early civs gain more advantage than later ones.

    Thanks for all your great ideas :p Seriously: I would like you (you, you and you. Yeah, you too) to post any ideas, complains about current mechanics (like depression system, stability system, etc.) because it's a great help for me. I would like to see comments about already present changes and about my plans. I posted ss with my overpowered civics in first post, so feel free to criticize.
    Now I'm struggle with .dll compiling to add -2health/pop. I hope it will balance early civs a bit. But if I would be unable to do it soon I'll just post 0.0.2b, as current version has some annoying bugs (like Oracle double bonus, or destroying Arrentium [if you didn't settle Rome=you lose]).

    Yay! Finally compiled .dll XD Now I'm gonna add some things (hoping to balance everything a bit) and release new version (OK, I know nobody is waiting for it, but still I'm happy :p ) :)

    RFC Marathon, I suppose.

    I care for your modmod, by the way. It's just that I want to wait until you've added some more features; and I guess many others do the same. Don't lose your motivation :)

    I haven't downloaded it yet but looking at the civic screens why does the game force you to be a commie? I know in Europe socialism is more widely accepted but I really don't think a free market makes people unhappy.

    PS: Oh could you make it so GA prevent anarchy again and give every Civ a 1 turn golden age so they can switch civics on spawn without 5-8 turn of anarchy on marathon

    It's way too easy to get creditted by you. So I guess I can stop helping you with development now, right? :D
