Latest Patch Version: 2.10

Latest Full Version: 2.00

Designed for Warlords 2.0.8.0
Built on Amra's Modpack v2.0

If you haven't installed v2.00 as a full and clean install, it is STRONGLY recommended that you delete the entire \Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords\Mods\VISA directory and install a fresh, full version of ViSa v2.00 and then the latest patch, which includes all previous patches. Version 2.00 Full includes registry settings that are required by ViSa python files.

A 'letter' increment in the Patch Build indicates a save game compatible update, whereas a 'number' increment usually means the update is not save game compatible.

Please play with language set to English as full translations to any other language are not fully supported at this time.


ViSa Installation

Full Version

1. This mod is contained in an Automatic Installer, run the EXE (extract from RAR if you chose that download) and follow the directions.
2. To have the mod load automatically at game startup, edit the CIVILIZATION.INI file in your \My Documents\My Games\Warlords directory. Change the "Mods=0" to "Mods=Mods\VISA".
3. The Automatic Installer will clear the cache AND the custom assets directories.
4. Please use Add/Remove Programs option in the Windows Control Panel to remove ViSa to clear the registry keys.


Patch Update

1. The latest patch is contained in an EXE and RAR format. Please run the EXE or extract the RAR to the \Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords\Mods\VISA directory.
2. You may need to clear the cache by deleting everything in the C:\Documents and Settings\{YOUR USERNAME}\Application Data\My Games\Warlords\cache before starting the game (highly recommended).

ViSa Credits and Thanks

KET, FOR SUPPORTING

DALE - FOR HIS GREAT MOD - NO WORDS ARE NEEDED - WE ALL KNOW THAT HIS WORK IS AMAZING.

We would like to thank all who made this mod possible:

sevo - the maker of the great sevomod

arma - creator of 2uu arma mod - who was our inspiration

gir - special thanks for helping with problems and for his lovely mod - gir mod

fitchn - for the great mod civmore

ganart - for the extended mod

TheLopez - for all the mod additions

Gerikis - for the Multi-Player help

all unit model makers out there - we used a lot of models and we can't remember all - we are sorry and very thankful for them.

THANKS TO MAXRIGA GREAT MOD

A VERY BIG THANKS TO RABBIT WHITE, WOODELF, SEz's nautil, sharick, the conquasts, snafusmiths, and all those we don't know of who brings Civ 4 to a whole other level and game depth for their great units and models.

We thank all the people who helped in reporting bugs to us
just by playing this mod, you are doing us a great help and joy.

And last but not least, thanks to Firaxis for making such a great game and platform to mod.

ViSa Updates

Memory Allocation Error on saving games (AutoSave or Manual) has been reported in multiple mods and multiple threads on CivFanatics. Our recommendation is to not play on any map size greater than LARGE. Other work-around is to change Graphics Settings to Low and disable all Effects. Any other setting changes to reduce save game file size will also help avoid this error. This appears to be a Firaxis save game issue, not any particular mod problem.

SmartMap can cause errors in the two new Civic Categories (Education and Health Care). The default civic in those two categories sometimes is not selected on game startup. This also can happen on a 'normal' map immediately after SmartMap is used. Our recommendation is to not play with SmartMap.

Languages besides English can cause errors throughout the game. Our recommendation is to play ViSa in English only.

ATI Video Cards can cause numerous problems with this mod and vanilla Civ as well. Our recommendation is for all ATI people to download the latest video drivers without Catalyst.

Upgrading from version before ViSa v2.00 Registry Key Fix can be downloaded and double-clicked anywhere to set the proper registry keys for ViSa. Download this and apply it (by double klicking it) from any place, if you have installed both Warlords and ViSa to standard directories. If you didn't choose default installations (We assume in this case that you know what you are doing), please proceed with the following rules.
Only take these steps if you're NOT using default directories:
open the "ViSa-210-regkey-fix.reg" with your windows Notepad
change the "AppDir"=""C:\\Program Files\\Firaxis Games\\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\\Warlords\\Mods\\ViSa" to the proper directory you used for your personal installation.

Note: it is highly recommended that you reinstall warlords and civ to the default directories "C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords" on your computer.

Enabling DCM Ranged Bombardment AFTER starting a game is possible thanks to the directions of chipper_30:
1) Go in WorldBuilder
2) Save it
3) Edit it with a text editor and add Option=GAMEOPTION_DCM_BOMBARD in the options
4) Reload it and continue your game

Hi everyone. Tried to install VISA but it complained during install process saying that Mods/ could not be found. By the way, I'm running Civ4, but not warlords, could that be the problem?

If you would check the category you should notice that this is in Warlords Section. So yes that is the problem - Sovereign

This is a good mod but I don't like all of the civs that come with it(Canada? Australia?) cause I'm a purist. Is it possible to remove some of them?

When I download this file instead of coming out as a zip or even a regular file, it comes out wanting to open in notepad, what could be causing this problem?

Admin: Have you tried using a different browser or a download manager... it works fine for me. Try changing the extension to the proper format.

This is one of the best mods I have seen yet. The attention to detail is exacting, and the AI is thought out very well. I have played many mods and this rates as one of the best yet. I'm hoping it is as stable as it is good. My hat is off to the creators, keep up the good work.

Ugh, I'm in a normal windows, and I'm having trouble clearing the cache. I can't find it in any of the folders, which is rather odd.
