Hmmm...time to finally get my notes together about the maps
someobdy shud make this for bts
Yes, we'll be releasing this for BTS!
Good news. I was hoping it would be included with the other fan based mods. Looking forward to it.
TAM v2.01 (for Civ4 Vanilla v1.74)
WARNING: you need a fresh installation in order to play TAM 2.01. Finish your current savegame, if you care it, before installing TAM 2.01
If you have installed TAM before, delete the TAM folder from your "Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Mods" folder. Then put the downloaded TAM file into your "Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4" folder and extract it using WinRAR "Extract Here" command. No original CIV files will be overwritten
The best way to launch the MOD is to double-click the TAM map files (marked as 2.01) in the "Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\PublicMaps" folder
TAM v2.01 features:
-> XML improvements and fixes on civics, wonders, buildings, techtree and units
-> Assyrian as 24th playable civ
-> New scenario map - TAM Eastern Med - 15 Civs - Standard map
hmmm... goths in the eastern mediterranean? where exactly is their starting place going to be? also, the medians traditional capitol, ecbatana i believe, and the greater part of their lands are located east of this map. if i were making this map, i'd make it slighly bigger so as to fit the macedonians (a buffer to thracian and dacian overexpansion) and add a little more to the eastern border so as to fit the medians accurately and perhaps even the sumerians. also, a little more south would give the nubians a fairer start and the possibility of adding an arab civilization. just my opinion, though. don't get too offended. everyone working on this is doing a great job.
Creating Eastern Med map, major goals were:
1) make a standard map (i.e. approx 3000 plots) for slow PCs (they can't play huge)
2) setup as many different civs as possible comparing to Standard Med
(Minoans, Thracians, Nubians, Assyrians, Goths and Medians are in)
Some historical and geographic modifications were needed. Goths start north-east of Black Sea (just like in TAM huge map), Medians start east of Kolchis, Minoans have a sea route to Western African Coast
The Ostrogoths were actually resident in the Crimea region for quite a while.
the cimmerians would fit the bill for that area you have the goths starting in. they were quite influential sweeping south to whip the kolcheans and assyrians, and west into lydian lands to plunder ionian colonies and occupy sardis itself
A BtS version 0.70 was released the December 26th.

Very great mod and the bts version seems to work quite fine for me
Except this bug concerning the huge buildings (Henge, Parthenon, etc)
Can we expect a quick fix, or need to wait next version ?
Sorry for not reading all 138 pages but... is the bug Kedwinbi obviously refers to known? Cause it pretty much spoiled my lovely game.
Nevertheless - a really great mod of course! So, thank you very much anyway...
Yes, that bug is fixed for the next version. I'm just trying to get some help in figuring out certain python infinite loops that is stopping the game dead in its tracks once you reach the last Imperial era.
Oh well, thanks a lot for the fast reply. I'm really looking forward to this.
Again, great work... keep it up.
Great ! Thanks
Btw, as Babylonians, I was not able to build the unique gardens, only the normal ones.
Yes, that is exactly my case now. I just began a huge expansion of my mighty Roman empire once I discovered Iron Working and sent Scipio to Africa but the Earth-like cursor keeps spinning when I hit the Next turn button...
...which is too bad because this mod is simply the best
Shqype: thanks for the hard work I thought TAM was dead.
Is Thamis back to modding again?
0.73 out => big buildings and imperial infinite loop fixed, + some other goodies
TAM will never die....it will always exist because of the wonderful work of the modder's and our continued interest as fans of TAM. A shout out to Thamis and Shqype for the continued dedication to one of the best mods. Along with TR.
