Home of the Civ V Unofficial Patch, G&K Enhanced, and Vanilla Enhanced Mod

v7.4

The 7.2 beta cycle is complete, with the public release of v7.4 out now. Click the blue download button at right to get the release.

As always, clear cache/moduserdata and start a new game when updating mods. Civ 5 has several bugs when using mods, to avoid these please see the Common Problems List. Version 7.4 includes a few final changes to the main v7.3 patch (see the next post down). Yes I’m a perfectionist. 😉

City Development

  • 2 Merchant slots in Banks (was 1).
  • Removed the Agra Fort.

Combat

  • Increased the wait time for when barbarians can attack civilized territory. It ranges from turn 60 on Prince to turn 0 on Deity (40-0 in v7.3, and 0-0 in vanilla). This is similar to the “animals” period in Civ 4.
  • Added the 10% bonus vs barbarians back into the game.
  • Units with Arctic Power move faster in tundra and snow (was only snow).
  • 5 Scouts (was 4).
  • Militia no longer ignore terrain cost.
  • Scouting promotions:
    1. +1 sight and ignores terrain cost.
    2. +1 movement and can traverse ice and mountains.
    3. +1 sight and heals every turn.

Misc

  • Corrected bugs on the Survivalism 2 and 3 tooltips.
  • Minimum of 1 per mutual open border trade bonus.
  • Strategic resources can no longer appear on Natural Wonders.
  • Fixed a bug with terrain checks close to the horizontal world-wrap boundary. One obvious symptom of this was Barbarians spawning with terrain promotions that didn’t match their surroundings. The bug affected these areas of the game:
    • Barbarian and Citystate promotions.
    • A.I. turn-1 starting units.
    • Natural Wonder placement.
    • Strategic resource placement.

    Your mod’s been broken since 2.3.
    7.2.8 worked fine.
    7.3 crashed Civ entirely, every game I tried to play, sometimes when I moved a unit next to a city.
    7.4 sometimes freezes the game when I end my turn; The cursor spins and music plays but nothing else works.
    I always clear the temporary data when updating and the only other mod I have is InfoAddict.
