    The [last] Rise and Rule mod for Civ3

    The Rise and Rule mod (RAR) is based on our experiences with the Double Your Pleasure mod for Civilization III and the expansion pack Play The World.

    Rise and Rule is only released for the latest (and last) Civ3 expansion pack Conquests. The simple design philosophy behind the mod is that variety is the spice of life and an essential part of strategy. If there's only one path to success, there really isn't much strategy involved.

    We've tried to beef up the selection of improvements, wonders, units etc., hoping to give you more to choose between. Don't think you'll be able to build everything everywhere. We have tried hard to make that option the certain road to failure. A wise ruler will weigh cost vs. benefit in every single decision made.

    The nitty-gritty cold facts

    200 techs
    13 governments
    100 Improvements
    67 Great Wonders
    36 Small Wonders
    14 Specialist Citizen types
    52 Resources
    340 Units (including flavor units)
    lots of changes and improvements over the Double Your Pleasure mod.

    New: See what's in store for you, in the terrific 'data file' created by our own Matt_G, in this thread

    Download Link:
    Full version 1.02 - hosted by Civfanatics (120 MB)

    For additional download mirrors or smaller updates, visit the download page on DyP's website.

    Important: To be able to play RaR, you need the unit animation folders "World War II" and "Medieval Japan". These folders were part of the PtW addon, but are not included in C3C. However, the files are available to download individually here.
    Or alternatively, just get the 'Extras Patch' containing only the units used in the RAR mod.

    .. and enjoy. :)

    Edit: 2005-04-09: Added link to Matt_G's Data file

    Thanks. :)

    I'm glad you think it's small, I was getting worried that it would be too large - it is after all 35 mb more than the last version of DYP. :eek:

    Well now that it is here - enjoy it guys and gals. :D

    Let us know what you think of the mod. :goodjob:

    There are still some things that need to be worked on - i.e. the Civilopedia. (Isak added a lot of changes after my last major update.) :mad:

    Do let us know of any gameplay problems, unit balancing, Civilopedia inaccurracies etc. if you want to. But above all enjoy the R&R mod. :king:

    We have been working on it - design, implementation. play testing. etc. etc. for over a year. :sad: So new and fresh input is welcome. :)


    Download and enjoy R&R.

    Harrier.

    WHOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    When I saw this thread I thought "Oh God please may it be the real thing!" Although, I might have to download it tomorrow (as broadband in NZ really sucks).

    You guys are simply the best - thanks for all the time and effort put into this.

    Isak - You'll have to ask TF for that. AFAIK, I can't set that up for you.

    Good work, guys. :thumbsup:

    Sorry Navman74 - I have just re-downloaded the mod, and had no problems getting the full file, and no problems installing either, so I'm afraid that's a problem on your end (or perhaps your ISP's end). Try disabling any proxies (in Internet Explorer you do that in Tools | Options | Connections | Lan Settings) or alternately get a download manager (for example GetRight )

    @Turner_727:

    Thanks :)

    And I emailed the big TF yesterday, and I hope that he replies soon. Though at the moment the server does seem to cope with the pressure. I confess I don't even know what kind of connection the honorable mr. Bernskov has hooked the server to. :)
