BUILDINGS

    • changed raze for wonders
      • raze value now gives total amount of cost to build it (for example if the wonder costs 500 food and 500 timber, razing it gives back 1000 resources (type depends on wonder)

      • slightly lower costs and research times in smaller technological leaps (II->III, IV->V, VI->VII)
      • because of this I've also added 2 new versions: Extended and Extreme (both have bigger cost factors to allow for longer play as the current version is slightly faster than previous versions)
  • Temple bonuses
    • reduced city HP bonus

UNIQUE BUILDINGS

  • Raider Stable (Classical Age) - Mongols (II), Lakota (II)
    • produces Horse Raiders

    • very fast and more effective vs buildings than units
    • come in threes

  • GREEKS

First, I want to thank you for your mod very well done and bringing very interesting additions and modifications. It made me want to play again at Rise of Nations.
Secondly, during a multiplayer game, one of us totally destroyed other players with nuclear bombs. It's not that I think they are too powerful (which is their goal), but it is the fact that they can be created quickly and continuously through the final techs.
Would it be possible to prevent Artificial Intelligence from acting on nuclear bombs or to simply make it reduce their production time?

Sorry for my bad English.

Well, I've already made nukes produce really slowly and they cost a lot (+ they cost knowledge).

The whole point of the final techs is that they are powerful, that's why they also cost a lot.

I might tweak nukes a little further in the future, but if you want a longer play, I suggest you use the Extended or Extreme editions of the mod in this update. :)
