Quick Turns

Intelligently toggles Quick Movement/Combat during AI turns, which results in significantly reduced time you will spend waiting and watching what the AI does instead of actually playing, especially in the late game. Only important AI unit actions, relevant to the player are shown. Replacement for playing with permanently enabled Quick Movement/Combat or in the Strategic 2D view when turn times slow down to a crawl. You can now enjoy the cool nuclear explosions and most* unit animations without major compromises!

*Some animations like air rebasing had to be disabled because they were a big reason why turns in late game were taking so long (they kept playing in the fog of war, for each unit one by one). The wasted time was just too big to justify showing the player moved air units, so I removed them.

Based on jcraft's original Quick Movement mod (QMMOD).

-- Compatibility

Single player only. Doesn't affect saves.
Works with Vanilla, Gods & Kings and Brave New World.
The mod doesn't overwrite or modify any existing game files.
This means it should work with all other mods that don't share the same functionality.

-- Troubleshooting

The mod doesn't appear in the mods menu.
- Try unsubscribing and subscribing again (don't forget to restart the game).
- Try Google. It's a common problem not isolated to this mod.

The game crashes.
- Try deleting a database file with "QuickTurns" name in the "Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\ModUserData" folder.

-- Known Bugs

- Enabling quick movement for the barbarians will disable animations of your trading routes.
- Disabling quick movement for the player will enable trading route animations for the next computer turn.

Not sure if those two above bugs can be fixed at all due to how the game's engine works. If this bothers you, uncheck all Quick Movement settings.

-- Optional

Whenever I play use this mod barbarians spawn with them turned off in the game set up menu and I get the normal movement and combat animations stuck on for my units. Whenever I turn the animations off in the in game menu they just turn off for that turn then turn back on

I'm having trouble finding the in-game interface. Where is it supposed to be?

I wish I had found this mod sooner, it really does reduce wait times between turns by about 2/3's for me on King mode with 10-12 AI's. My fav mod right now.

This works very well for making the turns pass (speeds up Ai's turns) however this doesnt allow me to play with Quick Movement and such. Every turn that passes disables quick movement for me, and even if I enable it it disables again. Any idea why?

The direct download website seems to be broken. It says solve puzzle to download but there is no puzzle. Alternate download website anyone?

@Irish Ballbag: Open "Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\Mods\Quick Turns (v 10)\SQL\QuickTurnsAnimations.sql" file and remove/edit lines below "Aircraft animation speed". Movement speed and attack animations are tied together, so both are going to be affected.
