Description Leader: Archimedes Trait: The Great Mathematician, Physicist, Engineer, Inventor, and Astronomer Every turn that starts with a boostable technology being researched that has not been bosted has a 5% chance of a Eureka! moment resulting in that boost. Protip: Whenever you can, have a second boostable technology selected in the tech tree so that when the current tech finishes you don't waste that turn by having no boostable tech selected and thus no chance of a random boost. Civilization: Syracuse of Magna Graeca Trait: Fountain of Arethusa The Fountain of Arethusa is the fresh water fountain is the place where the nymph Arethusa, the patron figure of ancient Syracuse, returned to earth's surface after escaping from her undersea home in Arcadia. This fountain provides fresh water in every Syracusan city. Effect: Each city gets +1 Housing / +1 Amenity. Unique Unit: Trireme The Syracuse Trireme is a version of the galley that, because of its use of Archimedes' Screw, is both larger and has a longer range than the basic galley. It is, however, slightly more expensive than a galley. Specifically: Movement of 4 (+1 over the galley), Combat of 40 (+15 over the galley), Cost of 75 (+10 over the galley). Unique District: Defended Harbor Archimedes' claw and heat ray create formidable harbor defences. These defenses upgrade with walls and castles along with the encampment. Specifically: The defended harbor has the same ranged attack and fortified defence as the encampment. Trivia I had a lot of fun researching the names used in this mod. The city names are all location and era appropriate. Most are direct colonies of Syracuse while a few are other nearby Greek colonies on the island of Sicily. The people names are all pretty much assorted Tyrants and their family members. In other words, whatever I could scour from wikipedia. Notes This mod is fully playable. I've played it several times now and it behaves exactly the way I want. It just has a couple of graphic problems with the Defended Harbor unique district I have not been able to solve. Banner The game shows the encampment icon in the banner instead of the harbor. It seems to me I should be able to fix this by overriding certain functionality in CityBannerManager.lua. However, (1) I can't figure out how to override this file, and (2) its behavior is tied to CityBannerManager.xml (as defined in InGame.xml). I've tried overriding both the lua and the xml to no effect. Any lua experts know how to do this? 3D Model The actual graphics for the harbor itself have disappeared. Nothing at all appears. I'm guessing the banner confuses the system and so it just gives up trying to draw the harbor at all. I have had zero luck even finding out where this happens, let alone a way to fix it. So there we go. If anyone knows how to fix either of these issues, or even have an idea of where to look, be sure to let me know. EDIT: Updated zip file June 16, see post below.
