The newest version of the Forever Future mod (v1.7) is already on the Apolyton website! You'll find it in the Downloads section for Call to Power. Or just click this to get straight to the file: http://apolyton.net/local_links/jump/c-mods-182/5776
Here is the content of the readme (edited for the web):
It is a complex mod for the Civilization: Call to Power game (the first one), released by Activision in 1999, which we believe to be the best Civilization-like game that has ever hit the market. It means that you must have a copy of the game in order to play the Forever Future Mod.
There are several reasons why we created the Forever Future Mod:
a. To add more content to the game in order to make it more fun.
b. To make the game more in accordance with history and logic, without sacrificing gameplay.
c. To fix what we felt were errors and/or unnecessary simplifications.
d. To rebalance the game on various levels.

Note: This is the Developer's Corner, a part of the C:CTP section of Apolyton, where members of the C:CTP development team discuss ctp-related topics.
For many first time players of Civilization: Call to Power, the sound of sinister cackling as an unseen Slaver kidnaps another citizen from an unsuspecting city is enough to cause an anxiety attack. The reason for this strong emotional reaction is simple… Along with the addition of a 1000 year Science Fiction game era and a completely new stacked combat system, the introduction of Special Units is one of the most fundamental differences between CTP and its mighty predecessor, Civ2. Players who stayed up playing Civ2 for hundreds of hours in the dead of night are now forced to learn the basics of unconventional warfare under a new game system. Players may feel like Arnold Schwarzeneggar in Predator, facing an invisible enemy of unknown capabilities. That can be intimidating.
Don't worry. Change is good. As Arny pointed out in the same movie, "if it bleeds (you) can kill it". Once you get familiar with the Special Units you will learn to love them all like little computer sprite brothers….or you will never conquer the world again!...
