Default Conceptual Balance Mod 1.5

Some of the changes from 1.41:

*Strands of Arcane Power, Fata Morgana, and Enchanted Forest all made lower research and cheaper/easier to cast.

*Treelords now generate 1 nature gem per turn, and are somewhat better in combat.

*Bug fixed where one of the unarmored Lanka sacreds was too expensive.

*Several national rainbow pretenders made more attractive, especially the Lawgiver and Divine Emperor.

*Some types of LA Pythium legionnaires made cheaper, as well as renata.

*Eater of the dead further improved, and made easier to cast.

*Dark vines made cheaper.

*Bone grinding once again needs a gem to cast.

*Leprosy and Black Death more expensive (though cheaper than base game).

*Sirrush cheaper.

*Son of the Heavens, Lord of the Sky, Daughter of the Dawn and Son of the Sea all cost fewer points.

*Tartarian Gate costs 12 gems and Gift of Reason costs 15.

*Arouse Hunger now costs 4 gems and creates 16 ghouls (instead of 2 gems and 9 ghouls).

*Tarrasque and Legion of Wights cheaper.

*Poison Golem cheaper.

*Several pretender auto summons toned down to make it harder to get an unstormable capital (infinite troop spam inside sieged fort).

Great job Qm!

Comments:

I don't see the reason for the GOR change. Great spell often used.

Id rather see tree lords with an auto summon of a vine ogre or vine man, rather than a nature gem.

But very cool anyway!

Yes, it's the best Mod going. I also only play games with it on.

Great!
Cant help feeling that Tartarians could cost 15 death, since GoR is 15 nature now. In my experience, GoR is the main limitation anyway.

Thanks QM for updating this excellent Mod.

When you first started the conceptual balance mod for dom3 I hated it (was probably new and slightly stupid) but now I by far prefer playing conceptual balance mod games to vanilla games.

The conceptual balance mod makes so many spells, pretenders and units actually useful, rather then useless in vanilla. For example in one of my MP games, I am having a great time with stone/fire drakes being cast from multiple dragon masters. Thats 3 spells I wouldn't touch with a 10 ft pole in vanilla.

Thanks again QM and all who helped you for making this great game even better.

The best about this mod, is that the rebalance of low level spells is a great boon to the AI, especially combined to NI maps(they are FORCED to recruit their mages from time to time), as the auto cast AI has less chance of selecting an useless spell.

So thanks for this tedious and boring work of updating regularly this awe + 99 mod. (don't forget your sunglasses !)

+1, Even without GoR, Tartarians are great thugs on their own.
