balancing the identity of both mods is critical. let twaw be twaw just as let vp be vp. the best compromise here is how to balance the combat unit values and unit-tech-building-wonder costs. i stand by with the current tree-units-buildings-wonders that includes all of twaw, no one will be opt out. as for the wonder. it makes sense. wonders are special buildings. it should take time to build otherwise it isn't a wonder anymore. great engineer one time boost will be of value. but then again this is another conflict of philosophy of tWaW and VP. will keep you posted on this new game.... edit: looks like the tree bee lining is what i initially (but you simplified the prepreque) made but SMAN you will have a massive problem here regarding balance. - will need to relocate those units that will not obsolete/bypass/unrewarding. for example, LBE-precision engineering tech, armor frigate (40-35) and protected cruiser (50-35) are on the same tech. that is why i put more prepreque to not let those units be obsolete on the spot and feels rewarding purchasing and upgrading. i relocated armor frigate to steam power. before you can research precision engineering you need steam power. just like before you can unlock manufacturing, you need dynamite first. another example would be on GWE- motorized logistics and combustion. oil is discovered on combustion and iron landship (55) is on that tech while land iron clad (45) is on motorized logistics just above combustion. that is why i put a prepreque before you can get combustion, you have to get motorized logistics first. And moved oil to replacable parts because that is where all basic land units that needs oil. so basically on prepreque, replacable parts < motorized logistics < combustion replacable parts < flight just my thoughts though. its up to you to have it balanced. i'm dead sure you'll have headache where to place and combat values the way you are going now. edit2: playing now only with tWaWcVPv0.1 and VP(1-6)(11-21-3-1)-EUI. no other mods. communitas, standard size, standard time, prince (best gauge in knowing AI sucks or not) edit3: aww.... policies are fused now. half twaw, half vp. it was full vp before.
