    great work guys

    Just a quick note - long time reader of Apolyton, just registered to post ...

    I'm really encouraged by all the work done to address CIV4:Colonization playability issues, including REF and other tweaks. I'm having fun with the game but it definitely needs the "last mile" completed. Keep up the great work guys - can't wait for this to be polished up, then you can email it to Sid I'm surprised they let this one out of the door as it is, seems like lots of uncharacteristic gaps. Anyway, thanks again!

      Quick and general question about mods...

      Do I have to apply the mod patch each and every time I start the game, or should it automatically apply after I've applied it, at least until I unload it? I seem to have to apply it every time I start the game, but I've really never used mods before this, so I'm unsure whether that's right or I did something wrong somewhere. Thanks.

        If you start the game with the mod="\patchmod" flag in the shortcut, you don't have to apply it every time (see Dale's post about installing the patchmod).

            Dale lives in Australia. It's like 3am there.

            He'll (eventually) combine the two, you can't at the moment combine them unfortunately (without going into the source code and such).

                  Just curious, i just installed this game on my PC, due to the level of respect I have for both Dale and Snoopy369, I deferred installing until after this patch/mod had been done.


                  My question is this:

                  Can I install now or are you folks still doing a good bit of tweaking still?

                  thanks

                    Please install now and try it.

                    We need valuable feedback on balance changes such as REF and Education.

                    • Great work so far; if anything, I'd turn down the education ramping even more. In a marathon game, it is still taking 30-40 turns with a university after a few trainees...

                      • Hmmm, wonder if that's a marathon problem (the number increasing dramatically more because marathon's numbers are so high) ... for normal it's reasonable. When you say 'a few trainees' how many are you talking?

                          How's the REF shaping up on marathon? I haven't done a marathon test game yet to see it.

                          • v1.04 posted, please see first post for details.

                            It may seem like a small one, but some of the AI changes took time, and my time was a bit more limited this week.

                            Next week I hope to get a bigger update out.

                            • Your fix regarding treasure and galleons doesn't seem to be working quite as intended. It's possible to load your galleon with five goods or men and then load the treasure afterwards in the last spot. If you load the treasure first things work as intended, and you can't add anything extra.

                                Did you try with 1.04? Cuz that was reported for 1.03 and as far as I know the fix in 1.04 is working.
