I finshed game in 1.06 and it was very good! Naw starting a 1.10:)

Have you think of adding extra research perk after artificial intelligence discover ?
for example - "the thinkig machines" it would give battel meks(melee,midum nad heavy) also Omnius steeple building which allows MEKS build. Could change House lider
for Omnius or Titan Agamemnon. Colud give neo cymek ubgrade fore guardsman nad melee. Neo cymek like artificial infantry.

I know it is a lot of work:(

Hey Duneman, does this mod work with the 3.19 version of Beyond the sword?

I am dying to play your magnificent mod, but when I try to load it, I take a lot of xml errors. Same thing is happening also for Rise of Erebus mod. My version is steam version. I tried to reinstall both mod and the vanilla game, still result is the same.

P.S: I can play some other mods, the two I want to play most is just unplayable for me :(. If you have an advise, I am more than grateful to you.

Keep up the good work, we need more mods like this :).

I'm sorry, but I have no idea what could be wrong with the Steam version. I don't have it, nor any of my friends. Since you already own the game I suggest that you try it by other means. Cheers.
