This is a new mod called the Powers that Be. The Authors are Seasnake, Baldyr and Asaf. Seasnake had the design, XML and artwork, Baldyr the Python changes and Asaf brough CustomDLL to allow for truly unique civs. The Download Link is Here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TBQM9XTE UPDATE AS OF 4/23/2011, IF YOU DOWNLOADED THE HOTFIX BEFORE THEN PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD AND USE NOTE: ATTACHED HOTFIX IN THIS POST SLOWS THE RATE OF GREAT MERCHANT/ARTIST ACQUISITION FOR NETHERLANDS AND POLAND. ALSO FIXES ARTWORK PROBLEMS WITH MIDDLE EAST TANK AND AFRICAN CHARIOT ARCHER, THE BOMBER AND SHIP OF THE LINE. IT ALSO CHANGES THE TRAITS: EXPANSIVE NOW +1 FOOD ON TILES WITH THREE FOOD AND SONGHAI NOW HAS UNITS THAT DO NOT NEED OPEN BORDERS AGREEMENTS. To install, just unzip the folder into the "mods/the powers that be" folder. It should ask to replace a few files, let it do so. This mod is a standalone expansion to Glory and Greatness, my earlier mod. You do NOT need Glory and Greatness to play this. FEATURES: 40 Civilizations with Unique Civ Powers, 80 leader (two per civ) with one of 10 Unique Leader Traits, each civ has expanded UUs and/or UBs. New Resources (titanium, plays, shellfish, pearls), Blue Marble Terrain, better leader art, new wonders, all on the Better BTS AI engine with an expanded future era (courtesy of NextWar Mod). This Mod is a lot of fun guys, I've had fun making it and playing it. Every civilization can be very competitive and has several diverse strengths. Some have incredible powers (like the Mongols) but average UUs and UBs. Some are all around good builder civs (India and Iroquois) but have little Military advantage. Others have a commercial advantage. Some have incredible UUs (Scandinavia, their Longship can enter Oceans!) but weaker powers. There will be patches released as needed, but no major modifications to the game. I'm done with modding Civ IV, I'll just work on patching and fixing up this and Rise of Empires. Thank-you list in the Spoilers. Spoiler : Thank you to the following: Tsentom1 for his Python Wonders, promotions and Traits.
