    アジアへようこそ. Wait. No. Kumusta ka na? No. I got it:

    Welcome to Asia!
    Yeah, that's my catchphrase.

    If you're new: make yourself comfy. You propably played Rhye's and Fall of Civilization, an excellent mod for Beyond the Sword that even has been shipped with the game. I'm pretty sure Firaxis stole the concepts of the Unique Powers and Independents to use it in Civ 5.
    Now, Rhye's and Fall of Asia tries to put the whole concept into the History of Asia, which has been treated necligent so far. This required an overhaul of the units, buildings, techs and, of course, civilizations.

    To the rest: Yeah, it has been a while, but I'm back. I skipped v1.2 right away, which was released on Sourceforge, but never got it's own thread. But don't worry, this is supposed to be a new start anyway.
    The current v1.3 Is directly from the SVN, so the music module and wondermovie module is included. I think we can skip that because the file in itself isn't that big anyway. Needs some fixes maybe, but we're on it.
    So, what has changed? Ming works, some civs and mechanics were hit hard with the nerf bat, hoping that the game is more balanced. And i finally got to implement some old ideas for UPs and UHVs, for a little altered expirience with the civs that deserve it.
    What to expect for the next Version? I plan a major makeover of the Silk Road mechanics, which will lead to more balancing. That's the major point in the future anyway. Whenever someone has a cool idea for a UP or UHV, there's is still a way to implement it (I'm looking at you, Gupta!). Although i favor intersting ideas over historicity, as always.

    Some thanks are in order
    Black Whole who layed the foundation.
    Rhye made RFC, it's a no-brainer to thank him
    edead and Leoreth for SoI resp. DoC, where i borrowed some code
    Asaf for the Font Editor (why didn't anyone thought of that earlier?)
    The Capo, Cybrxkhan, Ekmek, veBear, bakuel, GeoModder, hrochland, Walter Hawkwood, danrell, Dumanios, StolenRays, valkrion, merijn_v1 and saibothlieh for their art. If i fogot you, don't hesitate to mention it.
    Youtube for the music module tracks
    merijn_v1 over and over again, for not losing hope for my return :)
    Tigranes for a burger and a beer, showing that meeting people here has benefits in RL :lol:

    Too many to mention who gave their feedback and input:hatsoff:

    Everyone who downloaded and played my modmod. Seeing the numbers feels nice :eek:

    Download v1.3
    Download Patch to v1.3.3 (use this link for a slightly larger .zip if you don't have 7-zip)
    Sourceforge Main Page

    Note that you need Beyond the Sword v3.19 to play the modmod.

    RFCA also has a SVN link:
    "svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/rfca-unm/code1/trunk rfca-unm-code1"
    The SVN gets the most frequent updates, where we upload changes as soon as they run stable.

    Now go on, download and have fun:goodjob:

    New Concepts:
    The Mandate of Heaven:The Mandate of Heaven is a philosophical concept in the Chinese Empire to legitimitize political power, comparable to the european Divine Right of Kings. In the game, a civ with its capital in China can gain this title, granting the Emperors Residence with huge benefits. Various factors like civics, certain buildings, score and cities in China are required/raise the chance of gaining it.
    The Silk Route:Once in a while civs from Europe or Africa will appear in your realm. You can decide which benefit you want (Trade, Culture or Science), and based on the amount of resources your benefit will be bigger.
    As of v1.3.1, a new mechanic has been implemented: Now you can choose with which realms you want to trade, and based on that you can get a permanent boost on gold, culture, science or even Great persons. Watch out for the ":traderoute:" on the top left of your screen to manage it.
    Chinese Civil wars:If another chinese civ spawns, after some turns the two civs get compared. Fist of all, if one civ has below -10 stability, it automatically collapses. If both civs have over -10 stability, a value consisting of the stability itself and, but just for the human player, the amount of army. The one with the lower value collapses. If the new one collapses, its cities going independant, if the old one collapses, the unimportant cities gets destroyed(low culture, far away from capital, no holy city etc.), the rest will be handed over to the new civ after some rebalancing. Rebalancing means destroying all buildings (except wonders) and most improvements, and reduction of population.

    Stability maps!
    Dark Green means core area.
    Light Green is historical area.
    Yellow means historical area, but in a foreign civ's core area.
    red means foreign core.
    Orange lines indicate the area that is related to a civ's UHV.

    I uploaded the code for unique dawn of man texts, like SoI and DoC. We can use some help with writing the texts for each civ.

    Hephtalite leader needs some TXT.

    Leoreth made it so that good huts gets randomly distributed on the start. This is very common thing for players learning places for huts and going there, was especially annoying in vanila RFC as those places became common knowledge and strategy guides would say -- send a Warrior to Denmark for a hut.

    Which one? I checked for the pedia entry and the quotes, but at least they work :undecide: However, it doesn't show that he's leading the Hephtalites, which deserves a fix
    Oh, nice :) I have to confess, although the lookout for huts are a basic strategy for RFC, i don't give them much thought here. Distributing them randomly gives insentive to go exploring, so i will check out DoC.

    @everyone: i propably give to much thoughts to make a new Silk Road mechanic :lol: after coding in the dark, with the usual trial-and-error, trying to copy the entries that work etc., i came to a dead end trying to make a new screen:
    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    
      File "CvAppInterface", line 74, in preGameStart
    
      File "CvScreensInterface", line 155, in showMainInterface
    
      File "CvMainInterface", line 247, in interfaceScreen
    
    RuntimeError: Access violation - no RTTI data!
    I don't even know what that means (google said something about too few RAM, but i don't really believe that :p ) Does anybody know what it means, or does anybody know a tutorial for that?

    EDIT: Just for the context, this is line 247:
    Code:
    screen.setImageButton( "SilkRoadAdvisorButton", "", iBtnX, iBtnY, iBtnWidth, iBtnWidth, WidgetTypes.WIDGET_ACTION, gc.getControlInfo(ControlTypes.CONTROL_SILKROAD_SCREEN).getActionInfoIndex(), -1 )
    "CONTROL_SILKROAD_SCREEN" is the thing that's broken, i checked, although they are in the enums and the Cy-Class with the rest

    The Mauryan UP seems a bit... weak.
    What was the old one again?

    The old one gave you a free Wat, the missionary building, whenever Buddhism spread to one of your cities.
    I removed the double movement on ocean (quick exploration shouldn't be that big part on the map) without thinking about Maurya. For the sake of both avoiding the quick exploration and keeping their UHV to spread the indian religions (seeing the Rajanate of Japan is what i long for:)), i came up with this idea and was quite pleased.
    It might be a bit weak if you don't aim for the UHV, that is true.

    Okay, this was the big project this weekend: The first step towards a new Silk Road Mechanic:
    Spoiler :
    Spoiler :
    The screen is almost finished:w00t:
    The basic idea behind it was to a) give more control and b) a more steady flow instead of a once-in-a-blue-moon huge benefit
    The mechanic behind it is almost coded, just not implemented...
    However, this is how it's supposed to work:
    As usual, pseudo civs come and go, depending on the current gameturn. I added some more civs, to spice it all up.
    Trait: e.g. Rome - technological, Swahil - commercial etc.
    The Camel and the access shows how you are connected (checkmark or X)
    Trade Value: Depending on the resources they want, all pseudo-civs have a sort-of unique way how much they value your range of goods. (the craft shops like Silk Weaver count, too, giving them more of a point to exist)
    Depending on their trait, you get gold, culture or science in some/all (balance out later :) ) of your cities.
    And of course, you get one or more free resources. Adding of Wine and Glass is planned. More suggestions are welcome :goodjob:
    However, the real innovation is that i plan on giving control to the player. E.g. you have 2 camels and 1 Silk Road Access, you can maintain trade with 2 pseudo-civs via land and 1 via sea, and you can select them youself, depending on your need.
    Getting the AI to do what is right will be the real challenge, but i got some ideas
    Phew. And when i checked out Rhye's mercenary screen i accidentally discovered a neat way to assign button design, so the MoH screen finally has a decent look.

    Certainly looking interesting. I'd like to see how it works out.

    The victory conditions in the code said 50000 :( I played them a lot, and changed that threshold some times, so i forgot to update the text for that propably...

    Try this file instead (copy it into [your BtS folder]/Mods/RFCA/Assets/python)
