    Brief Description

    World of Legends is an unofficial expansion to Civilization 4, that seeks to recreate the atmosphere of a normal expansion. Its main features are Heroes, Guilds, Inquisitions, and Minor civilizations that could pop up now and then.

    Unlike other big mods that introduce a whole avalanche of new features and add-ons, World of Legends tries to keep these to a smaller number. (The only time World of Legends veers off this “unofficial expansion” goal is in the addition of civilizations and leaders, which I feel is something people enjoy – playing with different cultures and peoples.)


    This is version 0.50 of World of Legend; it includes the new heroes, guilds, civilizations, leaders, units, buildings, wonders, civics, promotions, and game fixes and tweaks.


    Screenshots

    New civilizations:




    Heroes can acquire retinue, which are super-promotions:






    Military heroes:






    National heroes:



    Spawnable Civs pose a huge problem if you're unlucky:



    Kamehameha of the Polynesians:



    The Palace of Knossos, one of the new wonders utilizing the event system:


    Abd el-Krim of the Berbers:







    Features of WoL:


    Heroes: The biggest feature of WoL. Each civilization has two unique heroes, a military hero (like Joan of Arc or Thuthmose III) and a national hero (like Thomas Jefferson or Lord Nelson). Military heroes are super-powered units that can change the course of a war; national heroes, though a little less powerful, can build an Achievement that can give a civilization powerful bonuses – such as slightly increased culture or science in all cities – in the long-run.

    Heroes also receive special promotions that no other unit can – retinue. Reminiscent of the retinue in the total war series, these are people like spouses, adventurers, and war veterans that give your heroes huge bonuses. However, heroes must be used wisely, as they will automatically die after 25 turns (this is done for mainly balancing issues, but it also presents a strategic challenge to players).


    Guilds: Guilds are national wonders that are precursors of the Corporations. Their main feature is that they allow for the hiring of special “civilian” units every few turns – units such as artists, who can slightly increase culture in a city, or explorers.


    Minor civilizations: Based on The J’s “SpawnCiv” modcomp, this feature mimics the rise and fall of barbarian and minor civilizations throughout history; peoples such as the Huns, Anglo-Saxons, and Khitan have a chance of popping up during the game. They are at war with every player and cannot have diplomacy with anyone; though they can be defeated, they will be very annoying, and it will take some resources to defeat most of them.


    New Civilizations and leaders (a more detailed list can be found all the way down): 27 new civilizations, and 28 leaders to existing civilizations, have been added. There are also four new traits – agrarian (extra food on tiles with 4 or more food), progressive (+2 science beakers in all cities), and nationalistic (+2 spy points in all cities, free Combat I promotion for all mounted units).

    Help and credits:

    If anybody wants to help with python and SDK, please contact me via PM.

    Anyhow, a big thanks goes to the former team members of WoL – dutchking, Gaius Octavius, Ball Lightning, and TheLastOne36, as well as unofficial team members, Zerver and Seven05, who helped so much to get this mod started. Without them, this mod would be nothing.

    Special thanks also goes to Bakuel, for all his amazing units; The J, for doing all the python voodoo I couldn’t do myself; NikNaks, for making the civilization buttons and FlagDECALs not look lame; WzySub_10 and the CivGold team, since I nicked off a lot of stuff from them; edgecrusher for his hero interface; and The Capo, Ekmek, and IgorS, who provided a lot of the leaderheads I use in this mod, as well as helped me make my own.

    A really special thanks goes to Sevo, whose SevoMod was the first mod I played extensively, one that I enjoyed and played numerous games with. This mod is a homage to him and his mod.

    A full list of credits of other people whom I nicked modcomps, unit art, building art, LH art, and a whole bunch of other things from (if your name isn’t on here, and I used something of yours, please gently remind me, and I’ll put it on):

    Bugs and Issues

    • CTD happens randomly and without discrimination, even on the better computers (python or SDK faulty?); there seems to be no ability to fix this at this time
    • Some hero unit art has faulty animations/models
    • Although Spawnable Civs are "barbarian" civs, players still get diplomatic bonuses with other civs for fighting against the Spawnable Civs. Having the Aggressive AI option will alleviate this, somewhat.





    To Do List for Version 0.70


    • New barbarian animals
    • Culturally diverse city styles
    • Fill in gaps for culturally diverse units
    • Include more "minor civs" via The J's SpawnACiv
    • Add a new civic category
    • Add some new music to the game soundtrack
    • Select/Order sounds for new civs where possible
    • Add in new Random Events
      [*]Introduce "Dynamic" Religions (???)

    FAQ:

    Q: This mod looks interesting and well-made... but so do a lot of other mods, so what makes World of Legends different?

    A: I cannot claim to have the best mod out there, but World of Legends does differ from most mods in several ways. Firstly, World of Legends aims to create the feel of an expansion pack - so yes, there will be new units and civilizations and features, but there won't be an overload of new additions. This way, players can still have fun trying out all the new stuff, but they won't be overwhelmed and confused. Another major difference is in the new features themselves. Many mods tend to add in similar features, such as the Revolutions Mod. However, World of Legends tries to incorporate a number of features not found in any other mod, such as its own Hero system, Guilds, and spawn-able minor barbarians.

    So to conclude, although World of Legends may not be the best mod out there, it does offer another experience for players to try out - unique and different, but not too radical and overwhelming. Anyhow, if you're bored with WoL, try out some other great mods, such as The Capo's Diplomacy II and phungus420's Legends of Revolutions. Both of those, so far as I know, try to also implement a different experience than most other mods.



    Q: The mod crashed before it even got to the main menu! What’s up with that?

    A: First, check to see that you have patched the game to 3.19. If not, you can download that here. Second, if you have Vista, you must delete the dll, since Vista for some reason does not accept a dll different than the original. Thirdly, make sure you have not renamed World of Legend’s folder in the mods folder. Make sure it is still “World of Legends”, as some of the interface requires that the mod be called “World of Legends” in order for it to work.



    Q: Does this mod/uxp use dll? If so, what kind?

    A: As of version 0.50, although this mod does use a new dll, it is easily removable – just delete it, and you should be fine (if not, please tell me). The dll is simply stmartin’s CAR mod with a 40 civ dll, so it shouldn’t pose any problems. However, you will not be able to play the 1410 AD scenario or any other scenarios that are made for this mod.



    Q: Can this mod/uxp be played with other maps?

    A: Unless if they have a 40 civ dll, then no. However, you can simply convert the worldbuilder save file through wordpad to accommodate 40 civilizations.



    Q: Why didn’t you include [x] civilization, leader, modcomp, etc. in this mod?

    A: This mod is not intended to be one of those mods that include a whole slew of new features and things, like Rise of Mankind, or even an entirely new game, like Fall from Heaven. Those mods are excellent and even more well-made than this mod, but this mod is for people who want to have the experience of playing a new expansion. Therefore, I tried to mimic an expansion pack in the choices I made, while still taking some liberties, for example including modern-day civs like Canada or Brazil that would have never made it into the main game. Thus, there won’t be any Hunnic civ, for example, because I do not think they warrant their own civilization – though they will make an appearance as a minor civilization/barbarian horde. I have limited time, energy, and (frankly) modding skill, so I try to include the best stuff I can without overdoing it. If you disagree with a choice I have made, feel free to discuss it in the thread.


    Q: You didn’t split up the Native Americans!

    A: The game developers didn’t, apparently, and, if they were to have made another expansion, they probably wouldn’t have either, so I decided to leave the Native Americans as they are. I also wanted to add civilizations from different regions, and the Native Americans were not the highest of my priority. However, in the far future, I hope to make an optional add-on to World of Legends wherein you can play as major Native American tribes (probably just the Lakota/Sioux, Iroqouis, Apache, and maybe Cherokee).




    Q: Can I use some of this stuff in my mod?

    A: No problem. Just try to make sure to give credit where it is due (not just to me, but the people whom I nicked stuff off).

    I really really want to try this mod, but downloading a 500mb file from AG is a bit er...tormenting. Is it possible for you take a mirror(i hope in filefront)

    I just added a list of changes, fixes, and tweaks to the game at the bottom of the first post. Check it out, if you want to play the mod - or else you could be making a big mistake, like thinking deserts only cost one movement point (they now cost two)!

    Additionally, I forgot to add, since this is a mod/uxp still in development, please report any bugs/issues with the game! This is mostly an xml and python mod, so most issues will not seriously affect gameplay. :D


    Oh, yes... Took a long time indeed to get this entire thing up to get the big part (heroes) out... About 3 years! :lol:


    Before I do that, may I know why is AG "tormenting"? Not that you're probably not right, I just wanted to know your reason - it's only a few minutes wait, though I do agree waiting to download a big mod can be annoying (I remember CivGold took over an hour, and that was over 1 GB). And anyhow, I'm glad you're interested in this mod, so if downloading from AG does prove to be a bother for a lot of people, I'm more than happy to provide a mirror. :)

    Which aspects require SDK changes? Would the mod be remotely playable without the custom .dll (with tweaks)? Asking so in case it's possible I can convert this to run on a Mac. It looks very impressive, many congratulations on years of hard work coming to fruition!

    Amazingly at this point, this entire mod is just xml and python. I'm pretty sure the dll can be easily removed for normal games - it's simply stmartin's CAR mod with a 40 civ dll, so the only thing you wouldn't be able to play with are the two worldbuilder saves I shipped with this mod, a World Map for 40 civs and the 1410 AD scenario since they require the 40 civ dll.

    Otherwise, it should be fine - but please tell me if it works or if it doesn't, because I hate SDK messes too! :D

    Any chance in adding the latest BUG and Better AI to this mod? Nice work, BTW.

    It's very slow
    Yeah i don't have a very fast internet connection here.But i could get an average of 100kbps download speed from filefront(that's mean about 2 hours), while in AG, i could only get about 10 kbps, and no more than 30kbps(well that's about 18 hours:lol:).

    To all - I've added a "More Screenshots" and "FAQ" section to the fifth and fourth post respectively. Check them out if you're interested! :D


    Thanks. :)

    Anyhow, I have looked at BUG and Better AI.

    Firstly, for the BUG, I am interested in including it, but I feel that at times it includes way too many new improvements to the interface and art. The thing is I don't want to overload my mod with too many new things, so I haven't gone into BUG yet to see what I did like and what I didn't like; I may do that in the future, though. Also - to be honest, I'm not wholly aware of the full contents of BUG, as in I don't know how much python, xml, and sdk/dll is in it and how much of each type - my question then is, do you know how much python and sdk/dll specifically is in it? That's my biggest concern, to be honest - I'm okay with adding new improvements if it makes the game look better, but I want to make sure I can do so without messing up the code I already have.

    Secondly, for Better AI, I really do want to add that too. However, several issues came up when I was looking into it. Firstly, it's SDK/dll. I do not want to mess around too much into SDK/dll until I get more of this mod/uxp finished with (after all, this is still version 0.50), so I'm leaving Better AI for a future version of WoL (also I want to wait until Better AI itself can get to version 1.0 :D). Secondly, if I remember correctly, Better AI contains a good portion of the Unofficial Patches, which has a lot of XML stuff I don't want to include and mess around with. However, regardless, I do hope to integrate Better AI into this mod/uxp in the far future - it's too good of an improvement of the game to not put in.


    Alright, adding a mirror's no problem, then. I may even make it the main download link instead of AG. I won't do it until a little while, though, so you'll have to wait maybe a few days or even a week. Sorry if that's going to be a bit inconvenient, but I thank you for your patience and understanding. :D

    ^Exactly right after what happened did the CTD happen?

    Although I will admit this mod will occasionally crash for no good reason, more or less due to all the data in it, especially if your computer is on the lower end of things.

    My warrior moved, it was on automatic explore. The next game went fine except I did not build the hero units since they disappeared before my cities finished building teir current buildings. :) btw What is the recommended speed setting and map size?

    That's very odd. I have tested a number of games myself, and it never crashed like that before. Usually it crashed when I was playing the 1410 AD scenario, since that one has 40 civs, most of them well-developed with tons of units and stuff, so logically it'd strain my old laptop more.

    Also, yeah, make sure you're careful about those hero units - they can't escape death! :lol: (I did that for game balance, since it'd be pretty cheap if you got a hero that kept winning and then getting more and more retinue/promotions and then becomming super-powerful).

    Anyhow, if your game is lagging, I advise, obviously, a smaller map size. I also advise you to put your graphics at lower settings. In my test games, I did usually a standard-sized map with the low graphics settings. So if my dingy old laptop can handle that, unless if your computer is worse than mine, I think it probably can handle at least a standard-sized map with low graphics settings. And, anyways, even on low graphics and smaller maps, this mod/uxp is entirely playable.

    I conclude then that your crash was probably an isolated freak event. The only thing I have to say right now is save often (well, everyone should be doing that even with the normal game :D). However, if more random crashes happen, then please don't hesitate to report them to me as well as what was happening before the crashes.

    Thanks for reporting the crash, anyways! This is still a mod in development, so any help is appreciated. :goodjob:
