This mod makes the population limit 1000 and makes gold, stone, and bushes have 5x the normal amount.
Ok to play just extrace empires2_x1_p1.dat file and paste it over empires2_x1_p1.dat file in your game folder you should make a back up of the origanal empires2_x1_p1.dat file in your game folder befor you paste the new 1 over it. and just play like normal only with 1000 population!
Well,this mod makes all resources 5x and the population too 5x.On the whole,it seems like a very good idea.But then,we will be forcing a engine designed to hold no more than 1800 units,to hold 8000 units.With previous experience,I can not explain how much the game will lag when such amounts of units are present.And the too much resources is a nag too because the chances of running out of gold and resorting to trash wars becomes far less,causing a severe loss to trash-Dependant civilizations like Byzantines.
This idea has been thought of and submitted to blacksmith well over 5 times,considering the search function.But merely a few of them features 5x resources so a bonus point.
Adequate instructions and warnings were provided by the author,though they could be a bit more detailed and organised.
