Working On Star Wars Civ 5 Mod + Sorry I Haven’t Been Posting Much Lately!

http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/2/2b/ImperialFigureheads.png

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately! I’m currently working on a Star Wars Civ 5 Mod, so I’ve been working on that a lot recently, and haven’t had time to post on my blog, or have many things to post about!

Let me tell you a bit about this Star Wars Mod I’m creating. Well, It’s gonna be the Imperial Empire (Short Name: Imperium – still not sure about this bit, open to suggestions! :-) ), and will be led by Emperor Palpatine. I’ve spent a lot of time looking up what planets, moons (And Death Stars :-) ) I will use as city names in my mod, and also reading through the Civ Modders Guide. Yesterday, I was reading about flavors- which look pretty awesome. This part is how you get your leader to be unique, and choose whether he be peaceful, or a warmonger. If he will build large armies or navies. If your leader will focus on Science, Gold, Culture. If your leader will expand, or stay small. There are so many possibilities. I can’t wait to set it :-) (Palpatine will likely be most like Genghis Khan, often Hostile, and attempting conquest over minor civs).

Also, I’ve been making a little mini “Endor” map, which I started a game on yesterday, against Genghis Khan, Oda Nobunaga, and Attila of the Huns; two of them declared war after about 15 turns!! (I was sorta testing out what it might be like to play against the Emperor :-) )

Civ: Maps, Mods, Resources and Polls

After finishing my map, I finally got time to try it out! It’s a pretty cool map, but there weren’t as many resources as I thought I’d put on. It looked a little… empty :-) Maybe I’ll modify it. What do you think?

When studying the resources closely, also, I found that I’d put more Uranium on the map than any other Strategic Resource. Which Strategic Resources Would You Say Are Most Vital?

And one more thing. I started the game many times to check if it wasn’t just a coincidence, and it certainly wasn’t; every time I’ve played on this map, I always start in the same place, and I’d set 10 starting points. Any idea what the problem is? I’d really appreciate your advice! Thank you!

Civ Map Finished!!!!!!

I told you a few days ago that I was making a Civ Map. Well, yesterday evening, I finally finished it! No wonder I’d been taking so long with it though; I’d been doing every single tile individually, when I realized you can paint hexagons of 32 tiles onto the map in one click! :roll: … Well, at least I’ll know for next time :lol:

New Custom Civ Map Made Using ‘World Builder’

Bombing Stockholm

Civ Map

I am currently making my own custom Civ Map. Over 20 tiles wide and over 20 tall, this is the ultimate map. Rich in resources, and with vital resources in settling range of your starting point, this should be an excellent map to play your first game of civ! This map is a perfectly balanced map, containing desert, plains, jungle, grassland, tundra and snow. Wondrous mountains split the scapes and territories. Contains over 10 Starting Places For Players and over 5 City State Starting Places. A truly brilliant map whether starting in the future or ancient era!

Civ Progress

My favourite victory is certainly domination :-) And that’s what I’m aiming for on my current civ game! As Harun Al Rashid, I have conquered the empires of Bismarck, Sweden, Oda And Suleiman, as well as taking the capitals of Dido Of Carthage and Maria Theresa. All I need to do now to win the domination victory is conquer Moscow, Catherine Of Russia’s capital! It shouldn’t be hard, as I have St. Petersburg through a trade for 17.000 Gold, which in right next to Moscow (And within a Nuclear Missile’s Range certainly)!

Civilization 5: Domination and New Beginnings

After conquering Holland, Ethiopia, and the mighty Celts, and conquering the capitals of Genghis Khan and Byzantium, I finally won Domination for the first time on the Warlord setting! (The diplomatic marriage ability also helped for city states, though I did conquer a few of them without the help of it!) :D

Today, I started a new game, as the Mayans! Pacal’s ability (Long Count) is awesome, plus three Uranium mines help me guard my capital with Giant Death Robots and back my arsenals with Nukes! There is also so much space on this map, it’s unbelievable. Does anyone know, does the map get larger for the more civs you use?! … … … …

All the city states besides me are afraid. And they have reason to be! I have a mighty empire, and a strong army. By asking for tribute, I add to my treasury, which is growing 322 a turn! (top left!)

Please comment :D, and if you’re a beginner, or want to get Civ (buy here), please feel free to ask me any civ-related questions or advice! ;-)
