These mods are used for our multiplayer games. This game is incredibly stable & just plain fun, thanks to some great programming. The mods range from bigger worlds, less ocean tiles, less arctic & tundra, faster growth & so on. Thought I would share. Per the "Adj FACTIONS Mod" we also incorporated "blackarchon"'s outstanding 14 SMACX mod, but I did not include those adjusted factions here.
Appears to be some issues with The Less Oceans Mod. Primarily...performance. The large maps cause too much "lag" on some systems. I have included an up date to The Less Oceans while adding 2 new ones that entail cutting the Alien Life density in half. This should have a major impact on performance on larger maps.
I also include 2 mods that enlarge the text fonts, just a bit. To help out the older folks, like me.
Less Oceans Mod: WAS: <archipelago landTerritories="0.5" ( original = .2 ) <continents landTerritories="0.6" ( original = .3 ) <pangea landTerritories="0.7" ( original = .4 )
