Simply put, it's Civ IV with little changes to the basic gameplay, but it adds 6 civs, 3 wonders, 1 trait, 6 leaders for existing civs, new terrain art, 1 new resource, ethnic unit artstyle and city styles, a future citystyle, and all the Next War Technologies. To play, simply download and unzip, and put the file Through the Ages into your Mods folder in BTS. Then, on the main menu, click "Advanced", "Load a Mod", "Through the Ages."
