About this mod

some tomes can only be researched if you didnt select Tier 3 or higher opposite affinity

I recently played AOW4 with shadow + nature + order combinations and realised how tomes are totally NOT immersive. You can be undead casting death spells, raising dead and at the same time be a man of flowers, bloom, natures regeneration, spreading beautiful forests and grasslands while casting divine Order spells and granting those undead blessings from Angels :D This totally ruins game lore and immersion for me.

This mod changes that. Now some tomes can only be researched if you didnt select tier 3 or higher opposite affinity tome (general rule with some notable exceptions). So:

Researching Tier 3 (or higher) tomes of Chaos disables Tier 4-5 tomes of Order.
Researching Tier 3 (or higher) tomes of Order disables Tier 4-5 tomes of Chaos.
Researching Tier 3 (or higher) tomes of Astral disables Tier 4-5 tomes of Materium.
Researching Tier 3 (or higher) tomes of Materium disables Tier 4-5 tomes of Astral.
Researching Tier 3 (or higher) tomes of Shadow disables Tier 4-5 tomes of Nature.
Researching Tier 4 (or higher) tomes of Nature disables Tier 4-5 tomes of Shadow AND disables lower lvl "Undead" tomes (Souls, Necromancy, Great transformation, from Shadow)
Researching ANY tome of Order disables "Undead" tomes (Souls, Necromancy, Great transformation, from Shadow)
Researching ANY tome of Shadow disables "Faith" tomes (Faith, Beacon, Sanctuary, from Order) AND disables tome of Fertility from Nature.

Any other Tier 1-3 tome can be researched freely. Also new tomes from Dragon Dawn DLC are always unlocked.


BE WARNED! In game tooltips (descriptions) wont show these restrictions, so READ carefully all restrictions here! But I considered all tomes carefully, and its all logical and what would you expect in some realistic lore. So you can go play even without too much hustle, but dont be surprised if tome just locks because u selected incompatible one before ;)

should be compatible with all other mods.

I recommend starting new game for this mod.

Obviously works only for vanilla tomes. Any new tomes that were added with modding are not affected by this mod at all. But if u wanna make your new modded tome like this, just add to Forbidden player property tomes that will restrict, like this mod does.

note: this mod does NOT change anything in Empire skill tree. You can still have ALL Empire skills without restrictions. (but it will severely limit progress in some branches because tomes give u affinity points anyway) so there that bonus. 

unzip file to your "\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Age of Wonders 4\Mods" folder (create one if u dont have)

enable mods in your AOW4 launcher (dowser.exe in game folder)
> playset
> add new playset
> check the "Imersive Tomes" mod name and play.
if you have more mods, add "Imersive Tomes" to your existing playset

I can recommend using my mod Necro increased affinity requirement with this, and also mod "Tome_Affinity_Requirements_Expanded". all 3 mods are compatible and compliment each other nicely.
