    Reguarding the culture issue. I think I have tracked it down. I need to make sure I am correct on what I have found.

    I should have a fix out tomorrow night.

    Fix is being posted, thanks for finding this.

    FIX:
    Fix For Version 3 Now Available
    http://www.filefactory.com/file/6d35fa/

    Fix Notes:
    Due to Cultural Influences the max radius of a city culture was stunted compared to vanilla this was a bit to major of a change, what has been done to correct this is add NEW culture levels. At Standard the Max Culture is now 60k instead of 50k and the victory conditions have been changed to handle this. But what you will mostly notice is more of a range of Culture Growth, this still keeps culture a bit slower in growing and you start out very small.

    It's in as of version .4 through Mongoose SDK changes.

    I swear version .4 is driving me insane, this update is huge.

    I might get a .4 release out today then I can play with the SDK I still need to do a compile on my end.

    As far as the nuke thing goes, I honestly dont know the SDK and what TheLopez did to the SDK to cause complete destruction, it would involve a second tag that points to thelopez code and the original tag to point to the firaxis code, I sent a request to thelopez to add it in, and he said he would work on it I believe.

    Current .4 additions from the last post

    - Sevopedia Fixed
    - Offshore Platform @ Advanced Refining
    - Fort @ Construction
    - Longbowman @ Civil Service
    - Mark V Tank Added
    - Mi-24 Gunship Added (Flavor)
    - Unit Class Added TOW Infintry
    - TOW Infintry Added
    - Maceman, Samuari, Beserker @ Fuedelism/Metal Casting
    - Add Unit Class Stealth Fighter
    - Add Unit Class Ship Of The Line
    - Add Unit Class Cataphract
    - New Culture Level's Added This should allow cities to culture further
    - Victory Options changed to handle culture levels (Famed Is The Higest Now)
    - Apollo @ Space Flight
    - SDI Cost 2000
    - SS Casing @ Composites Cost 1000
    - SS Thrusters @ Space Exploration
    - SS Engine Cost 2000

    Kel, I have a super seekret :lol: project I am working on that might make it easier to merge. I think I figured out how to make modular XML files.

    I discovered this on accident, and need to test it. So I have a fork of my version .1 which is completly unaltered gameplay but all the cool screens. Now I think I can write some XML and drop in a new tech tree. If I can pull this off we might have a modular framework to make add ons for.

    @all
    Fix is attached to the first message as file factory was giving problems

    @Kel
    DON'T MERGE into mine yet..... My plug in concept WORKS!
    We can cretae a base mod and then add in add-ons without doing merges or even screwing with my XML....

    For example you release a 2uu mod that adds a second UU they unzip it in, and it does not overwrite my XML it sits on top of my XML this means you get to develop your add on and then you isolate your changes and create your xml files with JUST your changes.

    Something like this wont work with this mod per say, but when I release the unaltered game play mod, we can layer on top of it....

    Be careful of the "peter principle"... ( meaning someone thats doing very good keeps getting promoted until one day they are finally in a position where they are NO longer productive or functional..)
    I've seen enough "combo" mods already that kept "adding" and "adding" until you no longer even recognize that intial mod that you really loved..
    Saying this only because I loved the intial mod... :mischief:

    This mod:
    Version .4 is the Unit and Gameplay Tweaks

    Version .5 Promotion System

    Version .6 New Civ's

    Version .7 Wonders

    (.6 and .7 goals my swap places)

    Once .7 comes out we are going to push forward with testing and balance and shoot for a 1.0 release from the .7 code base in other words major changes will not come after .7 at least from a game play standpoint.

    Im still about 1-2 days away from a release on .4 Honestly today real life got in the way and tomorrow I will be with clients will night then I'll see what I can get done...

    When I get frustrated I've been working on the Unaltered Game Play and Framework version. The frame work is a simple concept essentially as long as you are ADDING and not changing things you don't have to merge the XML
    You can just layer it. More will be explained when I release Unaltered.
    (Which is not being released till 1.0 but its at .5 already) much smaller additions.

    Ket can I get a list of all the SDK mods you have included (with version numbers if avalible) or alternativly just send me the Source if you have it, my own code is almost WL ready and I will start merging other mods soon.

    What other SDK mods are you wanting to include in the future? With a little time I can get just about anything your looking for included, though If its not XML based I will have to make it optional, usualy through a globaldefine or GameOption. A modified GlobalDefinesAlt.xml will then easily turn them on or off and GameOptions can be set by the play each game.

    Well the point was to figure out adsactly which of thouse were SDK or not, from what I can tell the following ones are definatly SDK based.

    Rhye's 24 Civ
    Elhoim Diplomacy Fix
    Great Generals From Barbarians

    The following are multi-part and I'm not shure how much of each you have included.

    Lunar Mongoose SDK Fix's And Changes (The bug fixes from this are included but none of the game changes)

    Dale's Bombardment/Missile Units (WL added a Kamikazi boolean so Missle half is unessary, I was thinking of doing an updated version of the Bombardment part so that units dont loose the reduce fortification ability)

    Roger Bacon's Flying SDK (basic Flying tag and a few small tweeks are included but not the most resent version)


    SimCutie code - I droped this and all other fancy Python call backs from my warlords code because it was way over my head making it impossible for me to maintain/support/dubugg. I also found that it causes memory leaks if the Python code insn't included and as I wanted to make a universaly usable DLL that could run without error even with no supporting files I took out anything that introduced dependencies. Lastly I hadn't though anyone was using thouse mods, which ones were you interested in? I might be able to put it back.

    Who compiled your current DLL, I'd like to get the source from them.
