Really Advanced Setup

This mod includes all of the standard options normally found in the Advanced Setup screen. It also adds new features which allow you to modify game play significantly. Works with Brave New World and all earlier versions of the game.

To use the Really Advance Setup mod in your game first enable it then click "Next".
Then click "Single Player" then "Set Up Game" then "Advanced Setup".
Do not click "Back". That just causes you to exit the mod.

The following options are available.

Select Active Civilizations:
This allows you to determine which civilizations are active. Deactivate the civs that you don't want and they won't show up. Even when using randomly selected civilizations.

Starting Bias
Allows you to set starting bias for any player to: Start Along Ocean, Start Along River, Region Priority, or Region Avoid. The region biases allow you to select up to three regions such as grass, plains, hills, desert, tundra, jungle, forest, and hybrid.

Starting Bonuses
You can set the amount of Gold, Culture, Faith, and Free Techs that each player will start with.

Starting Units
You can individually control which units each player will receive to start the game.

Terrain, Features, Resources, and Natural Wonders
There are two methods available to add these items to the map. They can be placed relative to any player's starting location. They can also be scattered randomly across the map. There are numerous options available that allow you to place as many of these various items as you wish on the map. You set the guidelines when setting up the game. The items are then added automatically when the map is made.

Starting Visibility
You can increase the amount of the map that is visible when the game starts. This option applies to all players.

New Game Options
Disable Nuclear Weapons, Always War, and Always Peace.

When I set the map size to "random" in RAS, the game always picks a random Civ for me to play, even if I've actually selected one. This doesn't seem to happen when I select a specific map size. I've cleared the game cache (no idea if that's relevant), which didn't help.

I also tried picking a Civ in the original game setup screen in addition to the RAS one, instead of leaving the first set to "random", but that didn't help either.

Any idea what could be causing this?

Since you reinstalled the game I'm not sure if any of this will help. But....

Clear the Civ 5 cache. To clear the Civ 5 cache:
1. Make sure you exit Civ 5.
2. Find the Civ 5 cache folder.
It's location might vary slightly depending on what operating system you have.
Mine is located at: "Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\cache".
3. Delete the cache folder.
4. Restart Civ 5 and load the mod in the usual fashion. Civ 5 will automatically recreate the cache when the game starts.

Verify the integrity of Steam files. To verify the integrity of the game cache in Steam:
Right click on the Civ 5 icon in Steam and select properties.
Click on the Local Files" tab.
Click on Verify The Integrity Of Game Cache.

Check the Civ 5 options located in your Documents\My Games folder. Make sure nothing is set to a weird value.

Hi, does anyone have any idea why I cant run any mods now? I went from a few mods making my new game freeze (thought it was this mod) to now whenever I run any mod it freezers and have re-installed everything and installed new graphics driver with no change.. I dont enjoy the game without this mod, any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!

@General Tso: Yeah bro I did all that, after that did not work I even went as far as to uninstall my whole game and redownloaded it, which didn't work also.

It's kind of like a no win situation. If I leave them in some people get confused by the buggy behavior and don't like it. If I leave them out some people miss them.

If I get a chance maybe I'll put them back and add a big warning concerning their behavior.

@ General Tso: Thanks for the reply man, but awe, bummer.
General Tso  [author] May 20 @ 6:33pm 
@ peanutpalooza: The 3 "disable" options in the Game Panel use preexisting in-game code that has bugs so I removed them.

@ DirtySteve426 : Thanks for the reply. So far I can't find anything that could possibly cause that, but I'll keep looking. Just to make sure... Did you try clearing the Civ 5 cache and disabling all other mods at the same time?
DirtySteve426 May 20 @ 5:20pm 
my bad..i didn't see your other question...I do use other mods, but earlier I tested it without other mods and it didnt help...

Where did the disable research and happiness go? I can only disable nuclear weapons.
