    Was this a saved game? Unfortunately I currently have no idea how to save which units are on guard, hopefully if tools come out I can change that. If this wasn't a saved could you post your lua log so I can check if something is wrong?

    Same here. Units on guard don't wake when enemies are near, nor when they are attacked. At the same time a unit on guard wakes up every turn even though no enemies are in range. Very weird. (Not a savedgame, latest version in use.)

    This doesn't happen consistently though: unit on guard will wake for barbarians near. Could it be related to unit classes?

    Unit classes shouldn't matter, the code just checks to see if players are at war. I ran a test and they all woke around enemies for me. Of course, I had to declare war on them, so don't know if the ai declaring war acts differently, though I don't see why that would matter. I also had changed the code to a simpler method of getting plots, but don't think that affected it. I will test some more and see what I can find.

    OK. I noticed the turn alert has gone. I didn't mind it, except the sound was perhaps a bit loud. Since especially late game turns tend to be longer, it was actually quite handy.

    oh, I took out because I found an xml setting for so thought lua was pointless.
    To add sound to turn open TurnPhases.xml in
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Base\Assets\Gameplay\Data

    look for this around line 28:
    Code:
    <Row TurnSegmentType="TURNSEG_SINGLEPLAYER" DisplayName=""                            Sound=""                                    AllowStrategicCommands="true"   AllowTacticalCommands="true"    TimeLimit_Base ="30"   TimeLimit_PerCity="10"   TimeLimit_PerUnit="5"/>
    and you can either paste in the sound mod was using:
    Play_MP_Game_Launch_Timer_Beep
    which is a bit louder, or the one from the row directly beneath:
    Play_MP_Strategic_Turn_Start

    I had posted about it in turn chime thread, and forgot to add here, sorry.

    It appears so. Thank you for your efforts @gyogen2 for helping us out until an official fix was released in the patch!

    Im not so sure this mod is Obsolete. The Alert that was added in the Winter Patch doesnt really work correctly, barbarians do not seem to wake up units on Alert neither do Boats that pass by or attack cities with a unit on alert, very anoying tbh.
    @gyogen2 - Maybe you could mess with the Firaxis code an update it so it acts more like this mod used too??

    I may have spoken too soon. After I wrote my above reply, I went over to the General Discussions forum and there were several threads were people were complaining that Firaxis's Alert isn't working properly. It seems setting a unit to Alert doesn't actually wake it up when an enemy is near. So it looks like this mod might still be needed after all.

    EDIT: Ninja'd by Horem (thanks to a coworker interrupting me while I was in the middle of stealthily typing at my desk)

    I can confirm that the new 'Alert' function included in the latest patch is not working correctly, I've had a number of times in my current game I am playing where a Barbarian Scout, Slinger, Warrior, Horseman or Horse Archer have come right up next to an Archer set on the new Alert function and they have not woken up at all, and nor did they when Germany declared war on me and had units within sight range of a couple of my upgraded crossbowmen (who I had stationed near the border on Alert in case Germany attacked me). My current game I am playing with this mod disabled to see if the new Alert function is functional and so far it is completely useless, or at least for me anyway. This mod is most certainly still needed until Firaxis fixes their broken code or basically just cuts and pastes the code from this mod or Civ V in the next patch, which will hopefully also include the proper modding tools so that these sorts of problems can be fixed much quicker than they currently are able to be.

    Another mod that has improved an issue better than the developers have. Well done and thanks.

    No. this MOD is not obsolete at all. Firaxis patches are not working properly, in some cases not working at all.
    I strongly hope gyogen2 give us better updates to avoid what patches have. It's impossible to play in the current way with huge maps.
