I just finished my gameplay with your mod and some others from here which was said to be compatible.
No spells in spellbook of enchanting item, alchemy etc. appeared in my gameplay. I had heroes with those abilities (forging, enchanting), i had consumed numerous arcanum gems/dust, I had researched technology for creating arcanum (although all arcanum dust/gem I consumed where those I looted during game, nevertheless there was many of them like 4 yellow etc.). I could even transform two arcanum gems to one other.
No forge category in spellbook, not even one spell from this category. If you want any additonal info (from my game, save, screen, folders) i will try to help, tell me where to find this info you want for making this easier. Game is great and mods like yours are valuable. Thanks
ps - btw maybe of mod question but is it possible to change during game (it is possible on start) option for making enemies more willing to surrender/alliance when my power is much bigger (3x more power rate and good relations with one of two living factions) and i have max infuence from tech. Because sometimes it is just waste of time to achieve the final screen or steam achievement
And is it possible to automate cities?
Might be a SpellBookWnd DxPack issue. The original spellbook screen is too small to fit all the category tabs. If that was the issue, the last spellbook category tab would be Transmute. However, you can still access the Forging spells if you select the All category tab (Mana icon, first tab) and then scroll down until you reach the Forging category which is pretty much at the end.
Enchanting spells won't appear until you've cast a forge spell and used the item you've just forged. Again, if you're using the original spellbook screen, it won't appear as it's the tab after Forging, but you can access said spells scrolling down as described above.
If that turns out to be the problem, see:
900x800 should solve the issue, but personally I use 900x950.
If that's not it, then I would need your most recent saved game uploaded to Dropbox or some other file sharing site (where I don't have to register) so I can have a look.
Re: postscript, no city automation that I can remember, if by city automation you mean governors. Also, no in-game ways to modify surrender threshold other than to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.
