    tbh, in FFH, (normal version) and in other mods, you can research any of Commune / Righteousness / Malovent ..etc
    one interesting strategy was even to switch alignement to get 4 Paladins, 4 Eilodon and 4 Druids :D

    Instructions:
    1. Download Master of Mana Full and Patch 2.11 from Sourceforge.

    That's great. You are a killer Evasth. Thanks you very much for your decidated fanatism to improve this mod. ^^
    Why is it "better" to install it on a clean MoM folder ? Is that necessary ?

    It is not necessary but clean install reduce the probability of bugs (maybe I changed a file but forgot to include it etc). But overwrite 5.4 with 5.5 should work well.

    Edit: just realised that I spelled Aristrakh wrongly in the change log. Oh well... :crazyeye:

    Had not realised that you put some comments there. I have read it now.

    - Mark of Night: if the general opinion is the building is too strong, I will nerf it down.
    - Defiler: same, if the general opinion is it is too weak, I will further buff it.
    - Healer Circle will continue be blocked from Evil.
    - I might give Sheaim new potions.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    It's a pleasure to develop this mod. Kael and co, Sephi and co, they had done a brilliant job that I am happy to polish.

    Anyway, has anyone tried Gibbon's new power? Is that fun?

    Aristarkh are growing in power much better and comparable to others with those buildings in rangers guild. There is just one more thing that MIGHT need fixing I think. Unholy Glyphs RG 2 (Granary) can be built everywhere and increases soul cosumption by 1. Tainted well from water well tech can also be built everywhere sc+1. But Catacombs RG3 (Dry Salting House) sc+4 needs Circle of Despair/Blood = Palace and it limits it to capital city. Cabal Shrine RG 4 (Aqueduct) has no such limit but requires Catacombs. Grave Pact RG 5 (Infirmary) needs Vampire Palace or Necropolis but its ok if Grave Pact stays limited to capital city. My (other) cities can grow now more than before but still bit slow. Maybe we should allow Catacombs to other cities too (and block Cabal Shrine for capital instead IF WE WANT other cities to grow much slower).
    I am in turn 250 with capital 11 (great! far better than before) and two cities with pop 2 and 3.
    AI Svart - capital 12, other 8
    AI Bannor - capital 10, other 10 3 3
    AI Hippus - capital 10, other 7 6 1
    AI Khazad - capital 9, other 7 5 4
    AI Dural - died by Khazad
    Maybe it is ok, need to play more to see.

    Noted. If other players also agree with your idea, I will make Catacombs buildable in any cities, requiring Unholy Glyphs and limit Cabal Shrine to require Aristrakh Palace and other buildings in this line require Cabal Shrine.

    The Epic Destiny victory conditions are gone*sniff*, though they were in dire need of updating anyway. I hope they'll be back.

    I have plan for Epic Destiny, just not sure when to do that. It will require long time.

    I agree with Alexej analysis and proposition about soul consumption.

    It's too slow yes. I would prefer to have faster soul consumption via more buildings, and less others buildings, less happiness building especially. Because it's more fun, more rewarding to have a fast growth, and more soul consumed (it forces the player to actively hunting souls).

    Would it be possible to replace few happiness building, with two +1 soul consumption buildings ? Or add two buildings like that simply.

    If you take rangers guild on their tier 3 is that Catacombs RG3 (Dry Salting House) sc+4, that will boost growth very nicely if we convince esvath to unlock it from capital exclusive. With Unholy glyphs and Tainted well it will be +6 per turn

    I think it's fine when Aristarkh city have a bit less population than other cities. They don't have to use population to maintain food for the their current population and therefor can get more production with less population.
    One thing I noticed in my game with Aristarkh is that I get a lot of souls only be clearing barbarian lairs. I have 6 cities and none of them has the soul creating building (forgot the name) in it, but I still have a soul surplus of 400.
    So I think, you don't consume souls fast enough and you get souls too easily.

    First of all thank you for revinding this fabulous mod. It is to this day miles better than some of the newly released fantasy games.

    Having a really pelasant game with malakim(really digging their style and music). Trading in the desert and stuff, while Ao S and Luchurip ravage the continent in bloody rampage. Everything is fine I'm up in tech and can handle overwhelming numbers with my magic.

    And then outta nowhere BAM Clockwork golems. 32/28 while every other single unit in the game has no more :strength: than 14.... I mean.
    Did you just forgot to scale down the clockwork golems to the new :strength: scaling system and just left them as they were ?

    I only realised that when Luchurip Blitzkrieged the Grigori in 8 turns.

    Please take a note =)

    P.S. Can I somehow edit this unit :strength: without ruining the savegame? And please advise me on how to edit it as well, kind of haven't touched the modding in awhile.:queen:

    Thank you again for all of your hard work!

    They don't get any promotions, so that might be the reason why they are more powerful than other units.
    They might still be broken, but with promotion and buffs and all the good stuff normal units can become similar powerful in later stages of the game.

    You can edit the strength in the corresponding xml-file.
    Try editing "Master of Mana\Assets\Modules\NormalModules\Xtended\XXRooster\XRLUCHUIRP_CIV4UnitInfos.xml". There is an entry for clockwork golem. It shouldn't break savgames.
