The UP is into BetterAI
Great! Any soon-to-be-expected updates I should know about before I download this and start working it into my personal mod?
I got the impression that 0.82 is right around the corner.
0.82 should be up late today ... testing going smoothely.
Is there a simple way to test the newly installed dll file? Something I can do in the game?
You can mouse over the flag next to the minimap to see what version of the mod you have installed.
My apologies for going MIA for the last 6 weeks, life has been crazy with a big move across the country and trying to get setup in a new town/job.
As you might have suspected, I unfortunately will not have time to continue modding this fall. Simply too many other major demands on my time. The Revolution mod and BBAI have been great fun and a real learning experience for me, and knowing that so many others enjoyed the fruits of the countless hours I put in has been a wonderful feeling. Unfortunately there are several loose ends and new avenues I had wanted to explore for those mods. Thank you for the great discussion here on the forums, and I hope that in some small part I have helped inspire some new modders to get in and explore the code. Modding really can be a very rewarding experience.
Looking forward, I do not know what kind of involvement I might have with Civ 5 modding. The civ franchise is my all-time favorite, and version 5 has an incredible amount of potential. I'm quite excited about where it will go in the months and years after release, but am simply uncertain whether I will have the time and passion to contribute as actively as I have over the last couple years. I also probably won't have a computer capable of running 5 well for at least six months.
Thank you to all of you who have played a part in making modding such a great experience over the last couple years, and I hope you continue to enjoy the mods I've contributed to (at least until 5 comes out!).
Good to know you're still alive Too bad on the lack of time for this
Anyway, thanks for the work you have developed so far. Hopefully it will serve you as well in RL
Sad news, I was hoping you'd come back for Civ4, at least eventually. And I believe I'm not the only one.
A lot of that is in todo and ideas.txt but if you feel it's not up-do-date or not verbose enough, and you still have time, please update so the people who might take over where you left off know what you had planned.
Too bad about the lack of time... c'est la vie. But big thanks for all you've done for the game and the community (just look how BBAI and you stuff is freaking everywhere) - and I hope that your future projects in your work are going to be even more successful...

Thanks for BBAI, Jdog.
I hope that a day you will come back to BBAI....
Too many way to upgrade it: aiweight for tecnology, national wonders decision, resources in war....
good luck Jdog and always thanks for BBAI....
thank you jdog5000,
you made civ4 to be civ 4.5.
your work is amazing.
thanks for every minute you put in modding.
Thanks for the kind words everyone!
Fuyu: Yes, all the pieces I was thinking about tweaking are noted in the todo file. It was intended mainly to remind and organize myself, but I hope it's intelligible.
Wrong Thread, sorry.
