    All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else. - Buddha

    With these enlightening words, I would like to introduce you to my mod:

    Rhye's and Fall of Asia

    Where should I start? I began with this mod one day in November 2009, since I always thought that Asian history is a little bit underrepresented in RFC. So I started modding adn here is what turned out. Please keep in mind, that this is an alpha version.

    About the mod: The mod plays in in the eastern part of Asia, i. e. from the Indus valley to the west to Japan and Papua in the east, from Mongolian steppes in the north, to Indonesia in the south. The time frame should be like this: 3000BC - ca. 1500AD.

    What is possible so far:
    - play with 27 civs
    - a new map with new resources and improvements
    - new tech tree
    - of course rise and fall
    - some independents and barbs, automatic city founding and religion founding, barbarian waves
    - new unit tree
    - UU for every civ
    - minor religions
    - Silk road mechanic (see readme)
    - new civics
    - Mandate of Heaven mechanic (see readme)

    If you are interested to experience history of Asia, read the important updtae below!

    It is a .rar file, so it can be opened easily with WinRar, for example. Just unpack it in your /Sid Meier's Civilization4/Beyond The Sword/Mods directory and enjoy!
    The source code is included for those, who are interested!


    NOTES:
    I am no experienced modder, this is my first mod. I had no idea about python or c++ before, so please be gentle ;).
    Sometimes, I just don't have the time to post, or answer your questions, but I will consider them all, eventually.
    Before reporting bugs, please read the changelog for the next release AND the Known Issues!
    If you propse changes, please keep in mind, that the dimensions of the map are set in stone. The rest can still be changed during the development of this mod. Also, proposals should be serious, or at least with a solid foundation. (For example I won't include flying Soviet tanks, which conquer all of Asia ;). Russia isn't part of the map you know? :p)

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: (06 September 2011)
    I am no longer the head of this modmod! Instead, civ-addicted took the quest of creating a better modmod from the mess I left ;). So please read the last posts for further information. Most information here will be outdated soon. However, I will try to post the new versions in this post!

    >>>>>VERSION 0.8 DOWNLOAD HERE<<<<< (Game Front)

    started a game as zhou... seemingly city name maps aren't yet done
    i would say the map is arguable, korean peninsula looks too thin, and taiwan looks deformed, good job nevertheless
    i also noticed that mountains in desert stand on snow terrain, is this intentional?

    Well, city name maps, are a HUGE task and I made this mod alone... I won't do this now, since a) it's too complicated for now b) a more stable version is more important c) time consuming.

    I made the map by using a 80x84 grid on this part of Asia. Every square, which hadn't at least 50% land became water, although such minor changes as adding tiles to korea are no problem, but Taiwan and deformed... in which way?

    Snow is always on top of mountains, didn't you know that? ;) Just kidding, I needed that to mark where mountains should be placed... I didn't notice that after finishing the map... Kudos to you :).

    Thanks for the tip concerning the link...Should be easier to find now.

    Bug reports:
    • Many civ adjective txt key missing
    • Akbar's button missing
    • As Zhou, I was unstable (-26) while my individual ratings were -1, -3, +2, +6, -2. It was after Qin's spawn; why?
    • Qin's adjective is 'Chinese'
    • Qin spawns with Swordsmen, not with their UU

    Questions:
    • Do you intend to rename the Great Granary and the Great Harbor?
    • Is Taoism automatically founded? I was playing as Zhou and I got it founded in Beijing without doing anything.
    • What's the point of the Kywan Worker? Is it jungle chopping?

    Balance:
    • Zhou has a UU requiring horses but there's no horses near them but in the desert
    • Qin's spawn seemed really hard, like they got too many techs, compared to Zhou, or maybe I was badly playing :p

    Suggestions:
    • Change Birma's color, it's really hard to spot on jungle and grass
    • Add Shintoism? Someone will eventually ask for it, might as well be me :p

    Python exceptions:

    That's a lot! Very good!

    Good points here, I'll take care of them. Concerning your stability, the ratings don't add up to the end stability. There are many other factors, which influence it: Qin's spawn causes instability. Were you at war with them? -> if yes more instability. Did you switch civics? I need a little more info on that, besides it is an alpha! Be glad, that you don't start with -40 instability! ;) Just kidding. I can really control it, when I have finally the civics, civs, etc.

    If you come up with better names, I'll gladly rename them. The problem is that, they were built by the Indus culture and therefore we have no name, as their writing hasn't been decoded yet (does my sentence make sense?).
    Taoism is automatically founded for now, because otherwise, Harappa goes for it and always gets it. But yeah, not a really good solution.
    The Kywan worker works faster than other workers. (50% faster)

    I'll look for the horses.

    How do others feel about the starting techs of spawning civs? Is it possible to be first in tech race?

    Color will be changed.
    The problem I have with Shintoism is, that only Japan would benefit from it, although the Japanese will be the only ones adopting it, isolating them even more than they are anyway. If someone has an idea how it could be implemented, I#ll be consiedring it. But as a real religion wouldn't do much good, I think.

    Well, this is nothing serious just annoying. These python thingies are needed later and I think, that I will forget about them if I just comment them out... Maybe I'll take them out.

    Funny thing is, I thought not so long ago that an RFC:Asia would be very interesting and what? I show up on the forums and I see one! I'll be happy to help you out with playtesting ;) I'm not knowledgeable about east asia though, so I'll try to help as much as I can.

    First, about Qin and techs: they built the Cheomseongdae, that's may be why they seemed so far away tech-wise.

    Yes, they just spawned and I was at war with them. Not sure about the civics though.

    What will you do for the civics? Something inspired by the History of the Three Kingdoms mod? I really like RFC:Europe's civics too.

    One thing I'd suggest is to keep notes somewhere about civics stability dynamics so that you can communicate them to the players. It's frustrating to have to dig in the code to understand why our civic's stability is so low ;)

    Oh, I see. I'll try to think of something, or to find something.

    Perhaps move it to another tech?

    Oh, okay. It isn't displayed in the unit help or in the pedia though, that's annoying; you should write a small txt_key for its strategy, saying that it does work faster. So that when, like me, the player will check the pedia to see what is different between it and the regular one, he will be informed ;)

    I don't know how that sounds but you could put one near Beijing, so that it will be disputed by both Zhou and Qin.

    Maybe just as a UB or as their Power? As a UB, I'd say something like +2 :) would be interesting...

    Speaking of UBs, I have to say some are a bit disappointing. Some, like Archives or Bazaar, are really good; others aren't so useful.
    • Family Altar: to counterbalance Zhou's low teching against Qin and to match the "family"/"ancestor" thing, I'd say give it +2:culture: (like currently) and +2:science:, ditching the culture modifier.
    • Pagoda: although it's interesting, the effect is quite limited, since golden ages aren't common. I'm not sure about Birma's history though so I won't give an idea.
    • Seowon: it's good in itself but I'd think, seeing as the pedia mentions the great extent of Korea's education system, a small production discount, like 180 (instead of 200) could be interesting

    Also, here's a list of buildings that don't get any replacement, just giving it because I made it myself for thinking about the UBs:
    Spoiler :

    • Artisan's Workshop
    • Bank
    • Barracks
    • Courthouse
    • Customs House
    • Dike
    • Fishery
    • Granary
    • Harbor
    • Observatory
    • Shipyard
    • Tavern
    • Theatre
    • Walls
    • Well
    Some more thoughts on buildings generally:

    I think Jail should be renamed and, eventually, get a new icon. Currently, it sounds and looks too modern to my taste.

    Well is redundant with Pharmacist, I think. Health is frankly never an issue anyway; I suggest two approach: either remove Well or remove the health bonus from forests. RFC:Europe did the latter and I must say it works well (no pun intended).

    You have a lot of missing txt_keys, buttons and red blobs (models) in your wonders, mostly embassies.

    --

    You might want to borrow the specialists' icons of the History of the Three Kingdoms mod since they would fit perfectly.

    I didn't look much into units for now. Although I noticed that Horse Archers are maybe a bit too strong; the feel of overwhelming cavalry is good but Spearmen are merely useful against them, even with their bonus. But that's perhaps because I was too slow behind tech-wise and that I didn't have pikemen yet.

    --

    Unique Powers.

    Do you have some ideas about them already? I'm trying to thinking of some but that's mostly pointless since I don't know much about the civs.

    But maybe they all have one and you just miss the txt_keys?

    Same question for the UHVs.

    That's not a problem for most players since python exceptions are usually hidden anyway.

    Same goes for me, I thought that Asian history was underrepresentated in RFC. So I tried my best. :)

    No, I felt that something wasn't right and it turned out to be the calendar. The actual calendar is as follows:
    • -3000 to -400: 65 turns
    • -400 to 300: 50 turns
    • 300 to 600: 30 turns
    • 600 to 1000: 100 turns
    • 1000 to 1300: 100 turns
    • 1300 to 1600: 150 turns
    I'll add more turns in the early game and reduce the turns in middle/late game.


    Strategy tags aren't on my priority list for now, but they will come eventually.

    Horses were important for the Chinese dynasties, yet they had to import them from the steppes or colonize those areas. I would like to stick to history here. The Beijing area is core area of the Ming dynasty... Not very tempting to colonize there ;). Maybe dynamic spawning resources? Or no horses for Zhou UU?.

    I thought to use it as a corporation... and add Judaism, Nestorianism, etc. But that will come later.

    I'll take a look at them. I am no artist and frankly I have no idea how to create buttons... Red blobs? I'll look at it.

    They are good, but maybe a little bit sinocentric? I always fear, that Chinese elements take over, although India and Southeast Asia are als important...

    Horse Archers are mainly used for harrasment and yeah, by that time you should have pikemen... ;)

    Thanks again! That helps a lot!

    Please have a look at post nr. 4. What do you think about my civics? Feel free to coment. If you have ideas or suggestions for UPs and UHVs, they are welcome too.

    How come Korea on such large map scale is thinner than on rhye's map?! besides it's just too small
    it definitely is to be made thicker to 4-5 tiles, me thinks

    i was talking about taiwan because see this - definitely looks different from your map (including mountain placement)

    i also cannot understand japan - it should have at least these clearly as islands: honshu, kyusyu, shikoku, hokkaido - but i only can see hokkaido and honshu; kyusyu and sikoku are a mess.

    Well you have to look at the whole map and take into account that it could be shifted like in my base map I uesd. If you compare my map with the 'original', then you'll see why it looks awkward. Civ4 maps just can't create shores, which remind of Japanese islands, beacuse the tiles link together ina coded way. I agree that it is strange, but to make it more detailed, I would need to enlarge Japan... And concering Korea and Taiwan just look at the map and you'll see.
    If you have some wishes then just say what you would change. (Like add a tile north, or so)

    BTW, I finally got the saves working!![party]:trophy:

    this is one strange map... look at nasa satellite photos, korea appears to be shorter and thicker, and borneo doesn't have that elongated shape

    so, here's my suggestion involving korea, japan, taiwan, and also southern tip of sakhalin.
    drawbacks are that korea now is oversized, but at least more like korea and suitable for a civ; and still no apparent shikoku island.
    i experimented only with tiles so resources etc shouldn't be taken into consideration, i accidentally removed some when switching tiles. i moved cheju island (i suggest it be made a hill) so that it's accessible from korean mainland and not japanese as it was before.
    Spoiler :

    a suggestion: make a mountain in northeastern korea a hill, so that there can be found a city! because there are cities.

    Your suggestions sound good, I'll incorporate most of them, maybe one or two tiles less than in your shot. Also, Iwo Jima was settled by 1889... I can add it, but wouldn't be as important as Ryukyu for example...

    I'm having trouble downloading via rapidshare but it should eventually finish. I'm eager to see what you changed, especially the civics :goodjob:

    I'd like to help in any way I can, although I do not possess any knowledge whatsoever of Python.
