Yup, I modified it quite a bit and there's serious debate about including this into VP or expanding the mod itself. Happy to see your opinion there :P

Sorry, didn't see the request (as I wasn't online on Steam for quite a while). Yeah, of course you're allowed to, and as I saw on Civfanatics, you already did. :)

I made new version of your mod compatible with MUCfVP mod. MAy I post it in VP Mods Repository catalogue? For now I had it only for my personal use.

Later civ scouts don't seem to have the same ignore border properties?

This mod is perfect the way it is. Thanks, mate. =D

make it so that scouts can be killed while in other players borders though, with diplomatic costs

Can it be used in multiplayer?

simple and handy
Slinx Feb 1, 2016 @ 11:25pm 
you should probably make it so that they can't capture other civ's units then (unless they are a barbarian)

i also dislike that scouts don't ignore ZOCs (zones of control)

Can you put up a direct download, workshop is broken for Civ5. Im sub'd but it won't show up in game or in the MODS folder
The Sweatiest Nerd Aug 13, 2015 @ 3:45pm 
May you put up a direct download link please ?
rockhounddiva Jul 27, 2015 @ 2:17pm 
i find it annoying that scouts don't ignore borders as well as terrain cost

@Thunderwolf This is a Cut from the movie "Madagacar: Europes most wanted" It's a great cartoon..
GravityzCatz May 24, 2015 @ 5:28pm 
does ending your turn inside a city-state still incur a diplomacy penalty?
ThunderWolf Jan 28, 2015 @ 9:37pm 
Like the mod, simple and effective.

PS. I love the artwork in the pic.
Walker Jan 20, 2015 @ 6:51pm

the first one i was subscribed to was probably abandoned a year ago. i found another one about 4 months ago but within a month it also was abandoned
Ryika  [author] Sep 27, 2014 @ 1:56pm 
Mhh. I might create a replacement-mod if the author of the old one decided do abandon his version. I'm pretty sure I was subscribed to his mod, but I don't even have it in my mod list - do you know when it was removed?
robdoggiii Sep 27, 2014 @ 1:30pm 
can you add submarines to this? i've downloaded sub ignore borders before but they always get taken down
americaneric08 Sep 26, 2014 @ 5:59pm 
Thank you very much. I will ask about it as it is highly interesting.
Ryika  [author] Sep 26, 2014 @ 12:38pm 
Well, submarines can't enter enemy borders by default, but yeah, you could also use a promotion that carries over. However, it only gets activated for units that are produced as scouts and then upgraded, explorers etc. would not get that trait.

So in fact I've just rewritten my mod to make it into an actual promotion so that it sticks around after upgrading a unit (will upload soon), but if you want to actually produce explorers, rangers etc. to automatically have that promotion, then that's something you'd need to ask the author of the other mod.
americaneric08 Sep 26, 2014 @ 10:48am 
I am sorry to hear that. It seems like it should be a capability that anything with the Submarine trait or promotion has.
Ryika  [author] Sep 26, 2014 @ 10:35am 
No, those units will not be able to move through enemy territory. It should be compatible with the mod, but scouts will lose their ability to move through enemy borders once they're upgraded.
americaneric08 Sep 26, 2014 @ 10:19am 
There is a mod to update the scout into an explorer, ranger, and then to special forces. Does the same apply to these units?
Sultan w0cksulaziz ibn Saud Sep 3, 2014 @ 9:29pm 
Brilliant. No more hassle convincing England I don't wish to use my scouts to murder, burn, and pillage everything in the vincinity simply to pass through. :Gems:
Rickyjr=CMD_JR420 Jul 27, 2014 @ 5:32pm 
back 2 that bottom post of mine I am talking about in civ 3 or 4 you had 2 have the roads.Now as long as you have a embasey you can trade.But i think that it wuld be a good mod there.
Rickyjr=CMD_JR420 Jul 27, 2014 @ 5:28pm 
Makes perfect since Great job Gonna subscribe NOW!!!! you seem like the guy to ask this 2=Remember to trade with other civs.(AI Civs) You had 2 have a road connected Well that should be a Hugh boaster if someone would make that kind of MOD..But you would be close enough for them 2 hate you about coverting land and what not...Sorry 2 write OFF-Topic but if You can make it or chat about it let me know i never made a mod b4 and want start..LoL Give all yall vreit for making this game 100% BETTER:Thanks Ricky.

Ryika  [author] Jul 1, 2014 @ 6:36am 
There is a mod that allows submarines to ignore borders:

Eaglechopper Jul 1, 2014 @ 6:22am 
Would be goof to have this for submarines too. Makes sense right. I though subs would have this in vanilla
[BOT] v.13.37 Jun 25, 2014 @ 5:48am 
nice one
Draceovy Jun 20, 2014 @ 4:05pm 
Interesting, could be fun.
DrNajs Jun 19, 2014 @ 2:19pm 
nice
netravnen Jun 19, 2014 @ 1:14pm 
An idea for this mod, as for the player to NOT being able to explore the whole map to early in the game. Could be to restrict the IGNORE BORDERS (promotion) to fx. (1) only available the first 10% of the total turns in the game OR (2) restric the unit to not be able to move across (embark) water while (still) being able to IGNORE BORDERS... Thou this is not gonna work for a single landmass based map, as the restriction would be (almost) obsolute in this case.

Yes my scout zerg rush is gettinng closer to completion
AltairC Jun 15, 2014 @ 7:58am 
there are promotions you can't get when promoting a unit but that are given when recruiting it like the morale promotion with the heroic epic, that way you can give a promotion to the scout and pathfinder only (or scout units only) - well you should be able to anyway, i guess.
If so, this mod would be perfect!

thanks
Ryika  [author] Jun 14, 2014 @ 10:18am 
Yes, it works with or without addons/dlc.
Mith Jun 14, 2014 @ 9:12am
