What's New?

Alpha 4

Improvement Growth unlocked by Tech:

Now improvements will only begin to upgrade when you have researched the technology needed to build it.

Expensive Improvements:

It is now even harder to Improve the Wasteland as improvements are properly expensive! Hopefully there will be a lot less "I got too much money!" now.

Wasted Wasteland:

The Wasteland is now even more well... wastelandy... Less Ruins, Less Trees, and much more wasteland! It's brutal out there!

New Economics:

Bonus resources are now much more important, every building in the game is now boosted by having access to bonus resources, the more ya got the more ya get!
(this is still really early stage and will need additional 'Building Chains' to help take advantage of more resources and generally give you a more advanceable and tailorable {technical term} city economy. As well as the addition of more resources and also 'produced' resources.)

Vault Buildings:

Vaults now have their own set of buildings, so 'village' and 'vault' towns now produce there own kinds of building.
(Right now the general rule is that Vault buildings produce more of everything except culture and espionage, as they are more closed off from the world, Vault buildings also create more specialist slots.)

Vault Improvement:

You can now build an improvement on vaults, that also unlocks the ability to build certain buildings in your town (currently only 1 building, but we will add more eventually)

City Prereq Size for Units:

Now towns have to be a certain size to build units. (the better the unit the bigger the town size) This info can be accessed through the units pedia screen.

New Unit Graphics:

Lots of new unit graphics and faction specific art thanks to clanky.

Known Issues:

Starting location 'Vault' Bug:

Still haven't managed to get the vault starting map bug fixed. In order for the game to run properly you need to start a new game, let it load to after the DoM screen, then quit to main menu and start a new game, then the game works properly and factions that need it will start with a vault.

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

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.)

AirborneM4 Oct 3 2012, 9:32am replied:

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!
