    btw, I had only ctd's when Bannor and / or Malakim were involved in games, maybe with the Sheaim, too - without these civs, I had a few really stable and fun games... had even a cultural victory with the Kuriotates

    Weird, Bannor and Sheaim are mandatory in all my games, and i never experienced instability caused by them.

    Its a world improvement, like Mirror of Heaven, Pyre of the Seraphic, Letum Frigus....

    What did you do exactly? Did you explore it or Sanctify it using Elohim?

    theres a unit in the stack that's probably buggy...... Try moving some units around into another stack.

    I can't replicate the issue, so maybe there was something wrong with units in your army. Try to move the units around for one turn or two, as dommain has suggested.

    MoM is the best mod I ever experienced in Civ series, I can say so even today with the existence of Civ 6, as I still play MoM nowadays.

    I am just so glad that I found many are same here. Thanks esvath and the team in developing and updating the MoM extented.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    RE: Austrin

    Inspired by @Linvega great changes for the Austrin, I am incorporating most of his changes to next version of Xtended. Essentially, the Austrin is a trader civ with abilities as follow:
    - connect resources and trade routes without road on every type of terrain.
    - faster (3 movements) recon units.
    - transform explored lairs to Outposts, which gives +hammer, +commerce to everyone but stronger benefits to the Austrin.
    - Deirdra will be Loremaster/Adaptive/Defender (temporary).
    - Sorah and Ecks will be Trader/Nomad (allowing recon to build cities).
    - Austrin cities are still limited in size but getting more unique buildings which can boost their commerce.

    ===
    RE: Malakim

    Since the trade aspect of Malakim is now Austrin's, the Malakim is rather bland, imo. Thus, I need fresh idea on what unique characteristics this civ should have. Malakim theme should be: desert, religion (Empyrean), enlightenment.

    My (still somewhat raw) idea is:
    - Follower of ... promotions give some boni (maybe Follower of Junil gives +1 holy and +5% heal rate, while Follower of Lugus gives +1 fire and 5% xp).
    - That above will strengthen priests in general.
    - Malakim units in cities with state religion will have chance (50%?) to gain Follower of ... promotion of their respective deity. This will give them extra strength.
    - Malakim world spell is moved forward to Way of the Wise, thus Malakim can access priests faster than any other civs.
    --- OR, change Malakim world spell to give +xp to all units with Follower of... promotion?

    Any thought?

    Hi, i got an error message and i hope you can help me.

    Fresh MoM installation with patch 2.11. Fresh Xtended 5.5.

    Can't see or click the 'next turn'-button and also the leader-head list on the right is gone.

    Edit: It's gone. I had another BUG-Installation in my Documents. Removing that solved it.

    Thanks for incorporating (most) of my changes! Though I still think that the other units should get extra movement too, otherwise protecting multiple cities from the barbarians becomes a nightmare. Normally units can move 3 tiles with roads, so even with a bonus, you're still slower than normal inside your territory.

    To the Malakim, I don't even think they're that flavourless now. Their religious units/buildings are already quite strong and especially the citadel of light is both flavourful and strong.
    Also, the Malakim Bazaar single-handedly turns the Malakim from "mediocre civ" to "omg OP" because you essentially double the size of every city, without actually needing to pay the maintenance for that.

    On the other hand, I like moving the world spell forward and giving units follower of ... with a certain chance, just as strengthening the follower of .... Though taking any deity but Lugus with them is madness.

    Created an account to ask this, because it's a question that's been bothering me, but how much work would it be to port and extend the Mechanos civilization from Rise of Erebus/Ashes of Erebus? They're by far my favorite Civ and I'd absolutely love to see them in MoM, especially when I feel a steampunk civ is the one big thing MoM lacks and they really fill that gap, so to speak. Siege tanks, thopters, steampunk robots, etc. Lot of potential for not only unique flavor, but perhaps unique but powerful playstyle too.

    Is there any chance of seeing that Civ merged into Xtended at some point, or as a separate modmodmod for Xtended?

    Hi, thanks for joining in!

    If the Mechanis is ported to Xtended with their unique mechanics (refined mana etc), then I imagine significant amount of modding to do. With their refined mana, Mechanos will require a separate "magic research" to substitute the existing schools of magic. If they still have access to current schools of magic (and lose the refined mana mechanic), I think they are stepping into Luchuirp' toes as the mechanical artificers.

    Maybe you can describe what mechanics/uniqueness that capture your interest the most? Then I can contemplate on that -but no promises.

    I get what you mean by the mana issue, but the refined mana could be removed and substituted with some other resource if need be, no? The Mechanos lore-wise and gameplay-wise are an agnostic civ and generally aren't fond of magic or religion, so if anything I feel like they wouldn't have access to any rituals/magic research in the first place, unless you wanted to implement tech-based ones. Either way, if it's too much of an issue or too complicated to implement new research or whatever, maybe you could just remove the refined mana and create some other new fuel resource to replace it.

    Anyway, I like the steampunk, obviously. There's a lot of potential for cool units focused on stuff like ranged bombardment/collateral damage and stuff like that, especially with tanks, steampunk themed aircraft, and so on. And their big hero unit, the Goliath, is pretty cool too, with the ability to switch between a normal mode for combat, and a siege mode for ranged bombardment. Putting too much power into that sort of ranged combat could make it too easy to cheese the AI from a safe distance, but I assume that sort of ranged and collateral damage would be one of their big strengths, and the lack of availability to magic and religion would be one of their big weaknesses. I also assume in the context of MoM, they'd require a lot of metal, particularly for building stuff like tanks.

    I'd give some more thoughts on mechanics and balance, but I'm tired right now, so hopefully this is a good start. There's probably even more potential for the Civ than I'm describing. I don't know if you've played Rise/Ashes of Erebus, but they're pretty fun and unique, and could be even better with the more advanced mechanics of MoM. It's worth checking them out and seeing for yourself if you haven't, perhaps. I think they'd fit perfectly in MoM though.

    I'm only basing this on what you write, I haven't played them myself, but in the framework of MoM, I could see the "refined mana" modeled by buildings that consume mana, but give different boni depending on the consumed mana. This would give them a unique synergy with magic because on the one side, you want to get mana nodes, but on the other side, since you just consume them, spell research and arcane units perks are kind of worthless to you. It's also relatively easy to mod.
    To the topic of units, you could give them low base strength to compensate the strong ranged combat, or only allow relatively light max damage from the distance. One possible way of balancing could also be just allowing very specific mechs depending on the mana a building consumes, so that in the early and mid-game, you're only good at a few certain things but not others.

    edit: Though all of this is pretty similar to the Luchuirp, I just noticed.

    In general when porting stuff, the question is whether to port it directly and just mod it until it works/is balanced, or starting from scratch on the same theme. I'd probably favor the second. Also, obviously, wouldn't we need to ask the guy who made them if he allows us to copy his work?

    I am playing Amurites, and the games stuck at round 510. Any possible reasons?
