Man, @ofmiciv5 - maybe VP SHOULD put you on their payroll....
I'm in the middle of testing the scenario - am having a blast, which delays testing, unfortunately... I'll probably have everything ready to publish (BETA) tomorrow. After that, I suppose it's time to look at my "Change Notes" document, currently up to three pages. Many, if not most, seem to focus on tech tree relationships. So, while I admire what you're doing from the VP side, it looks like I'll have to add a few more prereqs to the tree to limit the bee-lining.
I suppose after the WaW tech tree is "fixed" (for now) - I need to do some research on how to add these changes you're making - LUA code that senses when VP is enabled, then runs a special set of adjustments to the tech tree (can we call it TT for short?) so it will look something like what you have in the previous post. I've seen several mods that use this approach, so I'm hoping it will be relatively straightforward. Have had several players asking about VP. Would love to be able to make them play well together. I'm a firm believer it's costing me 1 star on my rating...
One thing we'll have to keep an eye on when it comes to "balancing" - there is that 128k beaker limit. I was playing around with that a lot in testing. The real problem is large maps, marathon speed, deity handicap. If you have too many techs that cost too much science, it can cause a weird overflow issue which means techs suddenly cost 1 game turn, even at end game. Any adjustments you're making in tieing the two TT's together will have to at least look at that a bit.
OK. The Great War just started. Am off to the trenches....

nahhh! like i've said before i'm not after it. all i want is to help create and play epic CIV5 games. i always do it for passion.
i will be condensing all my future posts on this post now, regarding this WIP VP compatibility for tWaW to refrain from accumulating more posts as i can just put it in spoiler via time stamp as title.
right now, i'm having a headache as to how to balance the TT as it overlaps/conflicts the era made from VP. rest assured, bee-lining science tech will NOT be an issue if we incorporate VP into tWaW.

Any TT suggestions?
