    Not a large mod, just a selection of extra buildings: 39 Wonders and some vicinity bonus buildings for the Ancient Relics, Papyrus, Llama, and Guinea Pig resources.
    There are two downloads. The easy one is available to those using V36, and is not recommended for earlier or later versions, including SVN releases.
    To install SquidimpComplete, simply copy the contents of the folder into Assets and allow it to merge with/replace existing files.

    SquidimpBitsnPieces is the slightly trickier one for those on different versions, SVN, or with their own mods.
    To install it, copy the contents of the file into assets. You will then need to add the following to the MLF list (make sure not to delete anything, and it must come before z_Wonders):
    Spoiler :
    Code:
    	<Module>
    	<Directory>Alexmods</Directory>
    	<bLoad>1</bLoad>
    	</Module>
    

    This needs to go after the [Modules] tag.

    Finally edit the init file in Assets/Config by adding:
    Spoiler :
    Code:
    	<load mod="AlexWonders"/>
    

    to the existing init file in Config. This should be added within the existing list, and needs to be in line with the other load mod orders. Again, be careful not to delete anything.

    It is advisable to always back up your game files before trying to edit them. :please:

    What I have seen so far looks interesting.

    Ah no! It can't be the last in the MLF the last one must be zMovieFix otherwise the game "forgets" to play the movies part way through a game.

    edit also to be sure your movies aren't forgotten you need to put your movie definitions inside the zMovieFix define file.

    Not mine TBs. I would have done them slightly differently;) Btw haven't checked but there were models out there for the different knights done for a Crusades mod.

    edit2
    1) It does not overwrite other mods if they are installed in the My_Mods folder.

    2) not sure but it looks like it may not play nicely with Pepper2000's mod, which is in the My_Mods folder - or I have a corrupt version. I am checking that out now.

    Didn't know about the z_Movies thing? That sounds like a weird bug. I should probably change download then, but I'm not actually sure how to alter the attachments I've already uploaded :think:
    I'll change the uni credit then ;) Not sure why I thought they were yours.

    We already have castle wonders for each of the Crusader Knights. They don't do much though.

    It was RoM and C2C that had the individual Crusader units. They were originally available to all but people complained that they should be restricted to nations with the state religion of Christian. This made that religion over powered and they were removed until someone would make equivalent type units for the other religions which never happened.

    I decided not to make them limited by religion. There are already plenty of religious buildings that are available to everyone (e.g. Hagia Sophia and Spiral Minaret).

    IIRC the older crusader wonder for Christianity spawned free units that were fairly powerful, and simply overwhelmed every other player. I don't recall any individual monastic orders though?

    I was also going to make a Shrunken Heads building that Captives could build if you owned Headhunter Cult, but then I realised I'd need AI for it :shifty:

    Why not make the Crusader units available to all. Then those Civs running the Christian religion get a free unique promotion, that maybe gives extra strength and some other promotion benefit, that fits in with the Crusader ethic.

    Given the power of some religions, I don't think it would be overtly too powerful to give Crusaders to any who declare Christianity and have the tech and resource prereqs. It may have made Christianity OP back when we didn't have Hellsmouth Dogs, Loki Fists, Ra Knights and so on but in C2C, with these kinds of features in play, it makes sense to reinstate the unit as Christian in general.

    There are quite a few religions that have special promotions, and some religions give science bonus. Neither is true for Christianity, I think. Andeanism and Bahai have strong science boni, since their temple gives science, not just their monastery. And Christianity comes far too late in the tech tree, 33 AD (at the latest) is not medieval. 313 AD (Edict of Milan) is not medieval, and that's the point when the persecutions ended.

    Yes, Christianity offers a few special wonders (so do a few other religions), but it is certainly not overpowered.

    @Squidimp

    I think there is an error with the MLF you included for your mod. It is missing the Custom_World_Views which means I am getting errors in your mod because the Slavery world view is missing

    edit you don't need the <init/> line in your config XML file it causes errors at the moment

    But it is with 5 specialist knights. It currently just has one.

    @ Dancing Hoskuld
    I don't think I changed either of those things? They aren't in my backup, are they from after the v37 release? I'm not receiving any errors either :hmm:
    All this stuff is based on v37, since the SVN is apparrently no-go at the moment.

    Christianity has the Crusader promotion, which is arguably one of the best in the game, since it gives the ability to use enemy's roads. Andeanism is pretty OP though, and Christianity does come wierdly late (this is a vestige of vanilla which hasn't been changed, IIRC).

    To anyone:
    I can't figure out how to change attachments, can someone help me so that I can update the download with the zMovieFix? :confused:
    I might need to get on the SVN to figure out what problems DH is having.

    Yes, I am using yours with the latest SVN version and yes I moved Slavery into Custom_World_Views since v36 (v37 has not been released yet).

    To change the attachments, edit the post, go advanced, manage attachments, remove old and add the new. You may need to have a different name for the new for it to work. I usually remove the old, save, then edit and add the new, but it is probably not necessary to go that far.

    Updated above posts.

    Download now interacts properly with zWonders.
    Dowload instructions are simplified.
    +3 new Wonders, +city vicinity buildings for Papyrus.

    Note that you will need to use the second method and download to avoid issues if you are not using V36.


    Also: if there is any conflict between my Knight wonders and the existing Christian wonders, I could always change them to the name of various national orders (e.g. Order of the Weasel, Order of the Dragon).



    Update 2: Electric Boogaloo
    Fixed some issues with the Civilopedia caused by a variety of weird things.
    Knight wonders should now work without overwriting the combat classes of the units involved.
    +4 new Wonders for the Future eras.

    Update 3: Update Harder
    Improved button graphics, fixed a weird bug in the Omnizoological Compendium.
    Added +6 new Wonders.

    Update 4: Update Another Day
    A few graphical improvements to old buttons.
    Comintern now works more-or-less as intended.
    New city vicinity buildings for Guinea Pig and Llama; lots of South American animals to hunt!
    +4 new Wonders related to Slavery.

    Update 5: Revenge of the Update
    Global buildings work as intended - Comintern hopefully fixed for real this time.
    +9 new Wonders.
    Wonder movies removed, for now.

    I haven't had a chance to play with the new wonders, but just from the Civilopedia it looks good. I like the building designs and icons. I appreciate that you designed unique effects for each wonder, in some cases writing Python code to do so.

    One relatively minor thing: I play with low quality textures, and this causes your icons to appear small or blurry. The nvdxt tool (free download) gets rid of the low quality mipmaps, improving the appearance of icons for people like me who have old, creaky systems. You can do it as follows:
    Code:
    nvdxt -file [filename].dds -nomipmap -dxt3 -fadeamount 0 -output [desired filename].dds
    
    A couple of other minor things:
    - In the Civilopedia entry for Ranakpur Temple, it says +[ICON_HEALTH]...
    - Steamboat Port is obsolete by the time you can build Omnizoological Compendium.

    Thanks for the feedback :)
    - I'll have to check out nvdxt, there're a few buttons I wanted to redo anyway.
    - I must have forgotten to fix ICON_HEALTH, I thought I'd already done that.
    - The Civilopedia doesn't seem to correctly display the +:) tag I'm using for Omnizoological Compendium. It should only give +:) from pet shop, zoo, and aquarium, but it keeps displaying weird things. Even stranger, it seems to be displaying different random buildings for you than it is for me :crazyeye:

    I'll look into these things as soon as I get the time ;)

    I don't suppose you know how to change a set of images using nvdxt? Rather than doing each image individually :scared:

    I've solved the other issues. I'm just waiting on figuring out nvdxt.

    You can use wildcards. Put in *.dds for the input to change all dds files. By default, the output will be the same name with an underscore (_) at the end.
