This mod completely overhauls the game. Each age now feels more extended and isn't rushed, as well as gameplay is more strategic than just spamming units from production facilities. It is best used in multiplayer. It also tries to re-balance the entire game and add unique units to underwhelming nations and take away unique units from overpowered ones. ATTENTION STEAM USERS: A STEAM-FRIENDLY VERSION HAS BEEN RELEASED ON THE STEAM WORKSHOP. READ THE BELOW ARTICLES FOR INFO.
