"RC:100% CGR:50% *New"
Thats the one I am missing (May 2022), sadly.

On the other hand, this one is double:
RC:100% CGR:400% *New

Is this mod still looked at?
Lescobe Randen Nov 26, 2021 @ 3:14pm 
Is it even possible to run these larger map sizes, or is the game engine simply not capable of handling them? Sometimes I get a CTD while a new game is starting, other times I get a CTD when I first try to save it, but I never got beyond that point.

Unfortunately the game crashes each time, when i try to create titanic world have enabled underground level. Is that solution how to fix it or just i have to swap to lesser setup? i have strong pc so i doubt, my hardware would be a cause of.

Does this work with Decodence and Shadow Realm + Wasteland expansions?

Question: Do modifications to starting resources and skills effect all players or just human players? In this mod or not modded? I haven't found the answer to this elsewhere

does this mod still work?
ALEXNTFOX Jun 12, 2020 @ 6:35pm 
Everything is good, but the size is larger than Huge with 8 players, average settings for settling the map, dungeons, and mods with units and mechanics - CTD and it's not about the computer hardware, its game engine which 4 gb lock

Thanks for a good MOD.
RC: 100 OGR: Could you make a 10 setting?

RC wants a MOD that is normal and speeds up the growth of the city.

I get a buffer getting to large error whenever I launch with this mod then the game crashes. Does anyone else have similar issues?
