    I got a complaint everytime i think we are getting somewhere close to getting 3.20 out, then TA gives me more work. I hate bugs, squash more bugs!

    LOL and a fine job you have done ;)

    This really is a great mod, only problem is my PC won't cooperate with all the crazy settings that I really enjoy... I am forced to play standard maps with 18 or less civs always or by the industrial era my PC starts to smoke... j/k but really great mod, it will surely go down as legendary in the mod community. :)

    Thank you!!!!

    I hope we reduce the lag in the BTS mod we have planned. We will be eliminating as much Python as possible and probably reducing the UU's as well.

    I have to admit the #1 reason I upgraded to a Core 2 Duo (overclocked to well over 3GHz) was for ViSa testing and playing....this mod is certainly a monster and we hope to tame the best for BTS :lol:

    :Dthe number 1 reason I bought the pc I have right now is so I could play Civ 4 vanilla... my old labtop wouldn't even run it, so I went out and bought a new one for that, among other things like running dreamweaver and visual studios smoother.

    Thanks WhimpyCiv

    We are pushing it our pretty quick so it is done before BTS hits the shelves....some of the late game tweaking may need a minor v3.21 patch but this should be close to the end of ViSa for Warlords.

    V3.20 is uploading to the fast download site now.....

    In about an hour or so I will update the CivFanatics Download link to this new full version installer.

    NOTE!!!!
    Previous v3 of ViSa will need to be uninstalled....which is easily done via the Start Menu ViSa group or via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. ViSa v2 does NOT need to be removed, just v3.00 or v3.10. This is NOT a patch but a full version only release.

    Downloading now....anticipation....rising...76% done, around 9 minutes left, I have been waiting for this for so long. Thanks for working so hard and putting out one of the best mods I have ever played. My friend absolutely loves the theme, was a big fan of thunderbirds(when it first aired) when he was a kid.

    Who says friday the 13th is unlucky :)

    Certainly not recommended for those unfortunate few....would be faster for me to snail mail them a CD :lol:

    There is a reason this is called an Expansion Pack.... :scan:

    Wow dial-up...(reminiscing about the old days)...though very few people have the equipment to do this, a little trick I used to do to increase my d/l speed on dial-up was to duplex...

    All you need are 2 modems on the same computer and 2 separate phone lines...each modem connected to it's own phone line, and they both dial and connect to the same server...this will cause the user to have a connection of 128k rather than 56k...

    It's not much of a difference, but it's a difference. And besides, I'm going way off topic now...:mischief:

    One puzzling question and one glitch -- not really a bug, just something unusual.

    The Question: What are the parameters, rules, guidelines, whatever for where a Sea Settler can found a Sea City? I have a Sea Settler and it doesn't seem to be able to found a city *anywhere* I move the mouse. I don't get the 'Build City' button no matter what, except that I see it darkened (inactive) when I roll the mouse over a coastal city.

    The Glitch: I noticed this in one previous version as well. The City Guard granted a free Guerilla promotion to my newly built Fighter. Or it might have been my Mayan Bomber, I'm not sure which. Anyhow, giving a plane double movement over hills ...?

    Still having fun!!! :D

    I think promotions are given randomly... some of them don't make sense :crazyeye: but I think it actually adds to the fun :lol:

    Ah! In case anybody else was wondering and didn't have the energy to click that link, you need to (1) have enabled Sea Colonies in the Custom Game screen, (2) be 3-4 squares next to your cultural border, and (3) have Methane inside your new city's radius. Perhaps that should be added to the Civopedia under the Sea Settler's entry?

    I realized (1) right off, (2) makes sense from experience, but (3) I don't know that I would've gotten so quickly. So Methane has to be right next to the new city, that is, within the original one-square-radius of the city? Hmm. That'll complicate my plans for the current game a bit more.

    Aha, perhaps you're using a definition of the word "fun" with which I am heretofore unfamiliar! :)

    Or inside the cultural borders of another of your cities and within what will be the sea colony's fully-developed city radius. Which can either mean that the two cities will wind up both claiming the methane, or that the earlier city can have expanded its cultural borders beyond its city radius.

    Note that there is no actual requirement that the new sea colony actually work the methane resource, only that it has said resource (1) within your current borders, including the new colony, and (2) within the new colony's eventual sphere of control.
