Pretty simple mod. Instead of requiring 3000 or 600 tech points to be accumulated before the Ages of War or Ascension are unlocked, they will be available as soon as you begin. However, the Age of Victory remains unchanged, at 9000 tech points.
N.B. In order to install this mod (at present) you will need to (backup first!) and overwrite TechAgeDefs.xml in your game’s installation folder.
Also note that at the moment this mod has only undergone preliminary testing. Effects on gameplay are at this point unknown. If your galaxy explodes, it’s not my problem. 😀
