    So what's new ?


    Updates since Beta 3.1 to v1.0

    Improved waiting time between turns :
    - Now the waiting time as been divided by 3 since the last beta release (beta 3).
    And thus there're more than 30 units and more than 30 resources added to the game.
    This has been achieved by croping and tweaking map.

    Map :
    - Basically the same than in the last version exept that she's been croped a bit, and the resources has been realocated.

    Wonder :
    - Added Marius Reform (require Republic government - produce a Centurion unit every 12 turns, also increase Army value).
    - Reconfigured several wonders with Tourists attraction flag.

    Improvments :
    - Added City Bridge (can only be built on city near a river - increase commerce).

    This Mod focuse on "civilized" civilizations of the era. Here, barbarians are not true civs but... only barbarians.

    BTW, I've begun an Eternal Egypt story in the stories & tales subforum. See this Link :egypt:

    The picture with the Egyptian units looks odd, did you darken their skin by any chance? Unexisted was working on a even better Ramses btw, it will be awile before we see that in the game though.

    I just finished the download and fired up a game. First thing I noticed is that you have disabled the option to turn off the preserve random seed. Is this by design? If it is I recommend that you double the hit points of all units to try and minimize the impact of the RNG. In my experience, leaving random seed on just creates frustration.

    @Horton :
    The main goal for all the modifications I've done, is on my opinion to enhance the gameplay. And I'm alway aware of player feedback. So try to play so and tell me what you think, I'll try to correct what's not good. ;)


    @pinktilapia :
    Sorry for you :lol: I hope you've a good bandwith :D

    I've quite a few requests in hand at the moment so they might have to wait a little while.

    that's not a big deal cause I'm only in the planing phase so no needs to hurry. :king:

    This list is non-exhaustive for the moment.
    And I need only ancient era one...
    I'll will need :
    - Antiochos III Emperor of Seleucidian Empire
    - King of Pergamus (Asia)
    - Ptolemee King of Egypt
    - Philip V or Persee King of Macedonia
    - Mithridates King of Pontus
    - Marius Roman general

    :crazyeye: :crazyeye: :crazyeye:
