BEST/ESSENTIAL MODS. What are they?
I've heard unofficial patch 1.4 is a must. Any others?
I've heard Dwiggs, Brave New World, and Children of Many Ages are pretty good too. What do y'all think?

Yes, the 1.4 patch is essential. The best mod in my opinion to install over 1.4 is MP Evolution. It is the only mod that I know is still being developed today. It makes countless fixes to the interface, ai, balance, etc. Basically, it's amazing.

You can find MP Evolution (the latest version as of today is 2.0.4.209) here: http://aow2.net/mpe

You can find the 1.4 patch here: http://aow2.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=661

With this patch and mod you are playing the definitive version of Shadow Magic. This is of course with the caveat that this is my own personal subjective opinion. But I think it is a opinion well established by the evidence :)

I own the GOG version in case that's relevant. Hope you enjoy the game!

COMA and BNW are both great mods. Those guys worked really hard at balancing and polishing them.

I downloaded the MP evolution mod, and so far the only difference I've noticed is that the border of my domain (the dotted hex line) has disappeared. Is this intentional, to make the game more realistic? Or is there a way to fix this? I'm all up for playing the definitive version but this one change is simply annoying.

Patch 1.4 is needed.
BNW, COMA & even MP evolution add more junk than anything & bring lots of poor design decisions.
There's one small smart mod : "Slowgrowth 1.10" --> essential for large random maps
Also, try to grab another small mod "Spellicons" --> gives color to the different spell lines

Just my opinion, after years of playing AOWSM
