Version 1.1 is available for download! This is a step further from just changing civilizations and AI. This version contains new units, new technologies and balance fixes! I had to remove the old updates to make room for the new ones.

Quite a lot has changed in this version of ROTE:

Sure. You can use it in your mod, not that I have rights to it or anything :p
Not that your changes are bad but I would lay off changing balance in the original too much. It's ok if you're actually balancing the civs you're adding but it's not as well received if you make changes that differ from Upatch for no apparent reason.
I haven't checked out your mod yet and I will check it out on a later date. It's just my two sense before diving into your mod. But at the end of the day, it is that your mod and I won't try and rob that from you.
I'm very interested to see how your perception of the civs I was thinking of adding differs to mine.
Well first of all, thank you for letting me know how you feel about my mod :-)
I only bothered with the changes because I wanted my mod to be a bit unique from others I've seen.
However, I am currently making version 2 of my mod where I have completely changed some of the civilisations and removed some of the changes I made in my mod.
I did take a look at your mod and saw that we both had the Etruscans, but with different perspectives of what the civilisation would have in terms of civ bonuses and AI scripts etc.
