The ultimate Civilization IV experience

Rise of Mankind: A New Dawn is a new sequel of the great Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword game. A New Dawn serves as a new expansion, adding a huge and balanced new technology tree, putting emphasis on new buildings, new units and new technologies.

Based on the incredibly popular former mod Rise of Mankind, A New Dawn transforms Civilization IV, reaching to new heights and giving the players the best Civilization experience of all time.
It contains a powerful and vastly superior new AI, charismatic new leaders and a new revolt and revolutions system. The huge amounts of new content also includes an advanced and reworked diplomacy system, a myriad of new automation options, an adaptive difficulty, and many other enhancements.

In short, this is THE Civilization game of the future. It’s the work of hundreds of talented individuals over many years. The result truly does feel like A New Dawn!

Last, but not least, it is built to be as flexible as possible, so you can choose whatever new option you like, and uncheck those you like a little less (if any…).

You always play the game you like.

A short list of the main features:

  • Smart and balanced technology tree: New technologies. New units. New buildings & wonders. Totally rebalanced with the community feedback. Disable what you don't like.
  • Revolutions: Empire stability. Minor civilizations. Evolution of barbarians. Dynamic civ names. Vassals assimilation.

Follow the Instructions to the letter. That error message implies that you did not select the Rise of Mankind folder with the installer.

Also, please post bug reports or help requests in the CivFanatics Forum, I don't check here very often.

You can check by entering the civilopedia. Inside it should have a new section at the bottom, label "A New Dawn Concepts" If it isn't there, you need to follow the installation directions on the summary.

Also, please post bug reports or help requests in the CivFanatics Forum, I don't check here very often.

Thx for replying. I checked and A New Dawn concepts isn't there.

Whenever I was installing A New Dawn I did get an error at the end of the install.

Error: Windows cannot find 'woc_installer.jar' make sure you typed in the name correctly and then try again.

However, and uninstall icon for A New Dawn appeared on my desktop and the install wizard said it was successful so I went ahead and installed the patch. But like I said....the A New Dawn concepts did not appear in the civilopedia and their did not appear to be any new nukes or nuke abilities.

I also posted about this on your bug thread forum (concept of belts and suspenders is what i'm adhering to by posting this problem in two places...forgive me). Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, awesome mod!! I just downloaded A New Dawn and installed it and the patch however I am curious as to how I should know if i'm playing it? I mean that whenever I play Rise of Mankind it does not say that it is the "A New Dawn" version.....should it? Or, should I be seeing that as a scenario or another mod in the mods section...because if I am I am not. I would also like to point out that if there is no verbage to connote that I am using the "A New Dawn" mod whenever I load "Rise of Mankind" I do not notice any new nukes or nuke ability's.

Thanks...And Thanks for the mod.
