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

Gem v1.7.10

The transition of VEM to GEM is basically complete. The major remaining tasks are:

  • Faith: fixing bugs and improving balance.
  • Leaders: balancing G&K-specific leaders.
  • Espionage: investigating possible enhancements.


Patch Notes


  • Reduced the AI priority for vanguard units.


  • +10%  higher strength for Iron and Horse units.
  • -10%  lower strength for Vanguard units.
  • -10%  lower strength for Archers, Composite Bows, and Crossbows.
  • 15% combat bonus for Vanguard units near friendly units (was 20%).
  • +50%  higher ranged strength for Gatling Guns.
  • Indirectly raised power of subs vs battleships:
    • +25% Submarines.
    • +25% Destroyer strength vs Submarines.


  • Barbarian Frigates appear when any player has Archaeology (was Navigation).


  • Added the Leaders section of VEM to GEM.


  • Updated the github project files to the current version to support translations.
  • Split the Demolish and Tactical Bombing promotions into one promotion for each effect (like +50% vs cities, +50% vs land, etc).
  • The effect of Air Siege promotions now matches the tooltips.

    Playing as Byzantium I cannot build Dromons when I research Sailing. They are completely unavailable. The only two mods I have enabled are this mod with CivUp, latest version.
