Brave New World v2.0

Author File Description

It has been one year and one day since the brave new world v1.0 was made available. It was definitely time for an update! And after approximately 10-11 months of working on this, I now feel it is ready for release. There has been a ton of content added which I hope BNW players will enjoy. A fixed version of BNW 1.0 is also included in this package which is essentially the v1.1 version which had been making its way thru cyberspace. The only changes to this version are necessary ones in the unit bodies section of the editor so some fixed ILBs are set up properly. I felt it important that this should be included as well.

For players unfamiliar with the original, I should explain that this is a mod which places a great emphasis on heroes. Developing your heroes is an extremely important aspect of game-play and if you do so you will find they are capable of great deeds. This time around, as well as having distinctive portraits, each hero also has a unique body graphic and gone is the generic rider-type for each race. Expect to battle with great looking heroes who smoothly jog around the battlefield with very fluid and realistic animations.

This mod also is very much a tactical combat mod. The battles you have to fight are much more difficult than in the normal game and you will have to defeat powerful creatures as you struggle to expand your empire.

As players of the original might expect, there are many new and exciting creatures which have been added. Some are beautiful while some are bizarre, and still others are downright scary!

You can also expect to find many new artifacts, new map structures, changes to spells and abilities (plus a few new ones) and much, much more!

Finally I will just say that the mod comes with an easy install (same as the original) and this time around we have included some good documentation for you with illustrated tables and lots of information.

So prepare thyself brave one, for the new world beckons!

Loads of new stuff, not quite sure of balance yet.

P.S. I've changed my rating, because clearly using TC allways depends on players, not mod. Much impressive work here, especially in graphical sector. Units are fitting, but not allways the most unique. Heroes really give strong RPG element, and this makes excellent mod for hero builders.

Mail Order Robot I'm having a problem. I just installed this mod, and went immediately to start a new random map. I really wanted to see these new wizards of yours and was hoping there would be more choices for dwarves, frostlings, etc....but no new my only guess is that it didn't work right. Did I do something wrong? It said that it installed okay...

So you know, I'm kind of new to mod-installation and it is very likely that this is a case of user-error. I'm fine with that, but plz help. I'm sure I'm not the only not-so-smart guy who reads forums.

Mail Order Robot Heh, heh. Okay I figured it out. Here's what I did for other newbies:

Follow the instructions. The mod comes with a readme that tells you in the second paragraph about a box you're supposed to click in order to make all this downloading business actually take affect on your game.

Aqui lo mejor son las unidades, , pero los heroes se repiten mucho, sin embargo hay gran cantidad de unidades nuevas y con novedosas habilidades.
Munataros I think there are too many doublestrikers and many of them 4th level. Old units become useless. Otherwise seems pretty cool.

Hi Munataros,

Doing a quick count, there are I believe a total of 44 level 4 units in this mod, 3 of which have double strike. So I am not sure why you would say many level 4s have double strike.
It seems like one of those broad statments people make who have not spent much time playing the mod, but is based on a cursory glance in the editor or maybe just playing a few turns.

Hi angelicbull,

I just wanted to thank you for your recent review. You may be interested to know that a new version of the brave new world has been sent to the people here and I expect it won't be too long before it is made available.

Thanks again :)

IthkariXen I was having a little trouble getting it to work, the game started and I made sure the it was the Resource selected, when I went to start the custom game, the load bar popped up than vanished, and I could not start another game and it would not let me go back to the menu, I also went along with the second option. Still no go.
