Tides of Crimson Version 2.86

- Requires Civilization 3: Conquests v 1.22


* To Install: *

(1) Unzip the download file or extract to a folder using WINRAR, WINZIP, 7-ZIP or other unzipping program.

(2) Copy and paste the 'Tides of Crimson' folder and the 'TIDES OF CRIMSON_v_2_86.biq' file into your Civilization 3 Conquests Scenarios directory, for example (non-Steam):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Infogrames Interactive\Civilization III\Conquests\Scenarios\
for example (Steam):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete\Conquests\Scenarios\

(3) If you have a previous version of Tides of Crimson, you should be prompted to 'confirm folder replace' and merge the old "Tides of Crimson" folder with the new one. Select 'Yes' and then 'Yes to All' on all subsequent prompts.

- ***** IMPORTANT FOR STEAM USERS! ***** : Delete the "labels.txt" file in the "Tides of Crimson\Text" folder and rename the "labels STEAM.txt" file to "labels.txt" to fix incorrect text on menus and a crashing issue.

(4) To avoid confusion, you should delete the .biq files of any previous versions of Tides of Crimson

(5) Install Flintlock's C3X updated EXE (included in this mod) to fix the tile info box, AI artillery behavior, fix Submarine Bug, allow switching between trade partners, allow for single target stealth attacks, allow stack bombarding, and much more:
(Compatible with the GOG & Steam versions of Civ 3: Conquests, but possibly more)

- Copy the entire "C3X_R8" FOLDER to the same directory as your Civ3Conquests.exe file.

For example, for the GOG version, you should copy this folder into:
C:\GOG Games\Civilization III Complete\Conquests

For the STEAM version, you should copy this folder into:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete\Conquests

- Go into the "C3X_R8" folder and double-click "INSTALL.bat" to install, and you're all set!
