Full Release. A New Dawn 1.61 has a lot of stability changes, so there should be no more late game crashes, lots of new features, and general improvements. Everyone who enjoyed 1.55 will love 1.61!

New Features:

  • Mastery Victory screen tweaked, it will show earlier in game instead of "The World is too Young to Judge"
  • AI Calculations for BuildingClassProductionModifiers
  • AI Calculations for GlobalBuildingClassProductionModifiers
  • Barbarian Generals Gameoption
  • Time & Mastery Victory now end at 2200 CE
  • Better RoM modmod, (Replacing the Balanced Civics Modmod), which balances the civics better and removes many of the happiness/healthiness boosts from resources.
  • Zoology Modmod has 2 new buildings: Pet Shop and RePet Shop.
  • Speed increases, 10-15% increase
  • Tech Health, Happiness, Commerce, and Yield Changes now appear in the "Actual Effects" area as well.
  • The civic screen now scales with larger displays.
  • Trading Corporations now works and has been enabled.
  • The AI will now initiate diplomacy and try to sell contacts in Advanced Diplomacy.
  • Multiple Research Gameoption
  • Reflecting Pool added to Beautification Project.
  • New Mastery Victory End-Game Video.
  • Better RoM now features Tejon's Resource Spawning Tweaks.
  • The AI will now initiate diplomacy and try to buy workers from you in Advanced Diplomacy.
  • The AI now values buildings based on the units that they unlock and the type of unit they unlock.

  • Fixed borders can be set so that units can not claim ocean tiles in the GlobalDefinesAlt.xml
  • Maximum bombard defense for cities is set to 90 in the GlobalDefinesAlt.xml
  • Defense now has a hover box, with a breakdown where defense comes from and suggested buildings. If the hover defense and your city defense don't match up, it's because Terrain Defense is a hidden characteristic, and not included in the regular city score. (But trust me, it matters).
  • Republic and Democracy with better RoM cause anarchy if the player attempts to raise taxes
  • The tax rate has been revealed to the main screen, so players can better track their taxation.
  • Buildings requiring terrain in the city radius now show the terrain button in the civilopedia

  • New German translations for much of AND. Thanks Snofru1!

  • Flexible Difficulty

  • Final Five
    • Each 50 turns (scaled for gamespeed), the lowest score Civilization is killed off from the game, until only 5 remain to duke it out
