About Fallout: Tame The Wastes with 14 comments by FamousSpear on May 7th, 2015

This release marks the end of 3 months of dogged chipping away at numerous bits and pieces throughout the mod.

This should Hopefully be the end of the A5 development, freeing us up to begin work on Alpha 6 (T.E.C.S) Build.
I wil be looking to release a design statement about what we hope to achieve with A6 in the near future, but for now enjoy all the yummy wasteland goodness that the A5 Full Release has to offer!

Alpha 5 Full Release

A5 Full Release contains a lot of new content, changes and fixes. We have done so much I can't even remember it all!

High Elder John MaxsonThe Master's RepresentativeHarold The GhoulTandi, First Lady Of The Wasteland!

But here are just a few of the Highlights:

New Maps!
2 modified Pangaea Maps with much increased landmass for greater land based wasteland goodness!
They will fill the role of a 'United States' Type landmass.
Fury Road also 'simulates' destroyed cities and infrastructure with clusters of ruins and broken highways.
All other maps have been removed to avoid map/gameplay breaking conflicts.

New Game Speeds:
For those of you that like faster games, we have added two faster game speeds to get the Wasteland Party Rolling!
Quick: 300ish turns
Normal: 600ish turns

Number Tweaking:
Loads of Stats across the board have been changed and tweaked.
Improvements now produce more.
Bonuse resources now produce more.
Buildings can make use of more Bonus Resources.
High End Units require larger cities to build.

New Resource Buildings Added:
Jet, Combat Drugs, and Books can now be produced by their Special Buildings.

Promotions:
These should now be fixed. You will find you are suddenly inundated with a whole heap of new promotions to choose from! (though we still have to make a whole lot more..)

New Art:
Vertibirds!!!!!!!!!

Story Event Prototype:
We Hopefully have this working, but tests are some what inconclusive... I have had them work properly when firing within about 10-20 turns of each other, but when played out over 100 turns it doesn't seem to work.. We continue to explore this issue! (They should currently trigger when you have a certain amount of gold in your treasury.)

I am sure I have done more than this over the last 3 months long, but I cannot remember anymore...(losing my patch folder didn't help!)

Installation:
Delete Previous Versions
Unzip to Desktop and move to Bts mod folder
Enjoy!

Note: If you are using windows 8.1 I have been experiencing some crashes when initialising the mod, just keep trying and it will work.
This seems to be 8.1 related and not mod related, as it never happened to me before I 'upgraded'.

I cannot start Civilization IV through desura. I have Civ IV through Steam.

Error:
Failed to launch item.

Failed to launch item Civilization IV, File is not valid
exe [c:\steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's
civilization iv beyond the
sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe]. [61.0]

Any idea what's wrong? (It has the correct file path.)

It's the steam version of the .exe so only steam can launch it.

You might be able to download a Retail .exe (Since you bought the game it doesn't matter where you download it) , but beware of viruses.

Actually, the above is the wrong path, but I entered the correct path manually. I guess it's not accepting the manual path? The correct path is:C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe

You know what is funny about The warlords theme song :P
It is a Lebanese folks song (a love song to be precise) the song talks about a beautiful women that the singer would let mountains bow before her then he says that when she appears she blooms as April ( April is month of the Virgin Mary in Lebanon Because All flowers trees Bushes Bloom in April) so if you take it that way you would see the paradox in the Game Title and the song :D

Hey does Civ 4 not like Vista? I used to play it, and LOVED it, on my old XP computer. THen I got a new computer with Vista, reinstalled, and it crashes whenever I try to start a game! It sucks cause I really want to get back on and play this game!
