NICE!! At last the mighty danes will conquer the earth as they are destined to do.. :D

I´m very happy that you cared to make the danish.
I havent started playing it, but im looking forward too see how they are...

By the way.. what color do they have ?? Just curious.

Ohh.. and just a last thing.
How about calling one of the cities "Hinnerup" that would be perfekt ;) :)

I actually use the F4 Foreign Advisor screen constantly... though I'd love to have the Danes in my game, I'm afraid losing the Foreign Advisor just isn't worth adding the Danes... I wish there was a fix for this.

And why is everybody who adds Scandanavian countries afraid to use Viking Longships as the special units?!?!?! (and I know Sweden isn't "technically" in Scandanavia, but everyone thinks it is, so it may as well be).

These "special units" everyone keeps coming up with I've never heard of before, but everyone identifies with Vikings and longships... and I know a Dane can't tell me that his country didn't use or create these things.

Come-on, quit being so damn shy and making up goofy special units... somebody have the balls to use the Viking longship!!!

Hey, if you live in that part of the world, everyone thinks you ride in Longships and wear funny looking helmets... come-on you're all Vikings, just admit it!

fimp
Dec 05, 2001, 09:57 AM
Its not a VikingCiv, its a DanishCiv.

I think i will make the Precisioner cheaper to build, in order to simulate that we had so many ships.



The foreign advisor screen only crashes when youre playing the Danes, not any other civs. So you can safely download it, and wait for a fix for the bug.

I thought Scandanavia included Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In addition, I thought Finland that was the country everyone thought was part of Scandanavia but really wasn't. Am I wrong? If so, what countries are officialy part of Scandanavia?

Wolfshanze
Dec 05, 2001, 11:12 AM
Okay... I outsmarted myself... everyone thinks Finland is in Scandanavia and it isn't, it's Denmark, and I was so clever and I knew this, that I outsmarted myself and says it's not what everyone thinks it is, so I tricked myself into going the reverse route and thinking Sweden wasn't included for some stupid reason...

In other words... I'm too smart even for myself...

(or the fact that I'm sitting in Saudi Arabia right now, with damn-near everywebsite on the internet banned except this one).

As for "It's a Denmark mod and not a Viking mod"...

Well, then what the Heck are Vikings? Canadians?

Are you trying to say Vikings don't come from Denmark?

Your denying your own history if you say Denmark doesn't have Vikings in their history...

By your own definition "this is a Denmark civ, not a Viking civ", that would be like making an "Italian" civ without Rome.

I am from Denmark and i KNOW that skandinavia consists of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and finland. Faere islands are also included but is a part of denmark aswell as greenland.

The skandinavian countries work together somewhat like the EU
but the treaty have existed much longer..


And for Wolfshanze


Hey guy!!! Read our history books better. YES we had viking and yes they came from denmark aswell as they came from norway and sweden also. BUT... Why not make the danes??? We were one of the mighties empires. :confused:

In our most glorios time we controlled whole of Denmark, A big chunk of germany, Estland, Letland, litauen, a big part of finland, Norway, Most of sweden, many colonies all over the world(in america and africa), Island and grennland.... :king:

So why not make the danish?? We WAS a great world nation at some point in the history. I thing in the 1500 -1600 we actually had the second largest fleet (maybe even the largest) after England. And a very strong military on ground also.

But due to some STUPID leaders we lost our great fleet against England in the battle of Copenhagen. Furthermore our leader(s) sold our colonies to america for a rediqulus low amount of money. And other countries(like norway and sweden)/colonies revolted against our empire because we treated them poorly. What a crap :( snøft.

fimp
Dec 05, 2001, 11:47 AM
What im trying to tell you, is that this is DANISH civ, means its the Country Denmark, and not all the other countries who also were vikings. That means, that all units made before the time that a country named Denmark (about 1300) existed, can not be the Special Unit.


So, what do you think of making the Precisioner cheaper to build?

We have had control of the swedish empire but as many other empires the danish empire also fell apart at some time...

But again there WAS a time where sweden was controled by the danish.

To set things straight, here goes - first some important scandinavian history. Yes denmark had control over sweden through the 14th and 15th centuries due to the calmar-union, and at one time this union consisted of the largest areal in europe. And sweden was at it's largest in between ca 1618(gustavus II adolphus)-1718(Carolus XII). Now for the vikings bit. Since vikings are not a country, but an integral part of all scandinavian history, vikings should be included in the mod. It was the danish vikings who invaded britain and france. The norwegians annexed Island and Greenland, and the swedish vikings formed russia, the first ruler being rurik. You simply can't have a mod that does not explain historical conquests so relevant to a country. It's a shame how scandinavians of today seem to neglect their own history, and try to erase their viking heritage, like their ashamed of it. We should be proud to know that our ancestors were among the most feared throughout history. Nuff said:)

Snowballer
Dec 10, 2001, 08:26 PM
Well, being a Dane myself, I'm certainly not ashamed of my Viking enheritage. At the matter of fact, I'm quite proud of it, especially since I have lived my whole life in Roskilde, which used to be a sort of Viking capital.

Yes, you have the Vikings, who conquered a large part of the areas around them.

And Yes, you have the Danes who held on to that territory & had one of the most feared fleets. Don't forget that the English had to use "dirty tricks" :D to get rid of it, and force Denmark to sign a peace treaty with England.

The variation between the Vikings and Denmark is rather small, becayse, as far as I can remember, it was King Gorm the Old who gathered all the Danish viking tribes to form the Kingdom of Denmark, which have then continued.

Anyway, looking forward to purchase Civ3 (I LOVED Civ2 and some of the WW2 scenarios created for it) and try out this MOD.

Dont change the danish capital to Roskilde. That would be stupid.

Copenhagen has been the danish capital for many many years. I´ll bet that there is a lot of people in other countries that dont know there is a city in denmark named Roskilde and they will wonder why our capital is Roskilde.

For me it seems strange and very wrong to name our capital Roskilde.

If it happen the first thing i will do when i have downloaded the new patch is to change it back to copenhagen.

....the people of the world know Copenhagen but few know Roskilde..... bad suggestion :(

Not true. The war in 1801 was not just a war. It had strong ties with the England-France conflict. The commercialist Danes insisted on trading with whom they wanted and claimed neutrality. Due to the War the English insisted on inspecting ships from neutral countries to avoid them transporting goods that could be used in the war against them. This caused a direct conflict between English and Danish interests which again resulted in a major crisis. The Danish king instructed the ships to defend themselves against inspection and in the summer of 1800 the frigate Freya escorted a Danish convoy and resisted inspection. Despite outnumbered the frigate attacked the English warships and was defeated.
In response the Danes signed a mutual defence pact with Russia knowned as the armed neutrality pact. They also pulled Preussia and Sweden into it. Now, the Russian Czar was also grandmaster of Malta which was occupied by the British. The next step was Russia and France ageeing to close all ports on the continent against the Bristish. This meant that the Danes were in a lot of trouble as they relied on trading. The Danish fleet was strong enough to be a threat to the English and England immediately demanded the Danes pull out of the pact. If Denmark did this it would mean war with Russia, Preussia and Sweden. The result of this would be the Swedes occupying Norway and Preussia invading Jutland. In short. Denmark would cease to exist. If the Danes fought the English they might have a hope so they chose that avenue. The English despatched a fleet under Lord Parker and Lord Nelson. The Danish fleet was not ready for battle and the Swedes and Russian wouldn't (the Swedes) and and couldn't (Russia - ice) help them so a ragtag crew was sent aboard the Danish ships. They fought valiantly, but had no chance against the superiour English crews. In the end Denmark survived as a nation.

So, the truth is a little more complex than you make it, BUT if Denmark had allowed the English to inspect the ships it never would have happened.

Sorry for not replying, but i thought i would get an email when somebody replied, but... i guess i didnt.


I am sorry, but for now, the DanishCiv is not compatible with the new 1.17f.

Sir Martin -> Please write in English! Most others dont get a word of what you say. But no, i wont replace Christan with a Viking leader, nor the special unit with a Longboat or so...

It,s not bad people and very easy to install, either manually or with teh installer.

This is one of the best "new civs" out there, and the reason for that is, it was almost 99% done when i got it. And i didn,t have to take any other civs out of the game.

I,ve d\l a few other civs and all they do is replace existing civs, with no gfx, text, UUs, (man, do i have some nasty heartburn)-: )which i think is no good.

Maybe they,re waiting for F4 to be fixed¿

There will be no hosting of my site at www.modworld.dk, because, well, i dont even think you can call it a "site". It wasnt worth the trouble for just one page.

:confused:

I am currently working on a mod for myself (and maybe others) where I am adding (not replacing :D ) 8 different civilizations to add some variety into the mix. I want to add in the Danish civ using the work you have already done. From the screen shots I saw in the other thread, you have done a great job :cool:. Is it possible to install the mod even when you have changed you civilopedia.txt file.

I have changed my civilopedia.txt file and I get an install error that says the version of that file is not recognized and it won't let me install.

Ideas??

First: Its impossible to ADD 8 new civs. The max number of civs in the game is 21.


And no, i wont let you use my mod in your mod-thing. Sorry.


If you have trouble installing the DanishCiv, use the zip file.

First of all, yes, you can add 8 because I have already added 8 civs and I have play tested it and it works...

Second, I thought most people were nice enough to share their work with each other to give the game more replayability...gee, was I wrong about some people's bad attitudes...

Third, I found you zip file and got the files I needed...I will be keeping the Danes in my mod...since my mod has some of the same things as Kal-el's mod that he is working on it probably won't get published here anyhow...but, I will be keeping it because NOBODY tells me what I will do on my own computer!:mad:

Its the nordic countries you just mentioned there, except Greenland which isnt... but if you think of it as a part of Denmark maybe it is.

if your going for geography Denmark is not in there because it is not on the Scandinavian Penisula. Only Sweden and Norway are. But culturally they are all united.

Relax, man! This aint going anywhere. Cool down!

It IS my decision wether i am letting other people use my DanishCiv or not. Sure, you can use parts of it, asking me first off course, but not the whole thing!

So, i guess you support piracy too?


BTW, the adding civs thing. What i meant, was that you can max have 21 civs in a game. Sure, i think you can have 100 civs installed but you cant play against them all!

All agree with you Nightstorm. If all mod workers keep their own work for themselves the game customization will not advance. Moreover I don't think that taking something from an another mod could kill it. Cause there is too many differents ways of playing there are many players and not all search the same thing.

Some would get only the danish civ instead of a complete mod.

But as I've tested your mod I know you have taken all precautions to make it hard to copy.

But no inquiry. I won't let use your mod no more, never, and I will make my own danish civ if I want to integrate this civ.
Perheaps I will use the Apolyton's work on it. I could say that we can add more than 21 civilizations. It is sure. The max is 31 civilizations (so 15 civilizations can be adding or maybe only 14 but not only 6). See apolyton forum !
But not YOUR MOD ! Keep it for u! :mad:

Who really cares about the differences between Denmark of Sweden of any other Scandinavian country. For me its all the same, cold, empty, flat (not Norway) and very little people living in too big wooden houses passing the day in a sauna. People who you can't even understand since they speak a language that make Chinese look easy (okay, almost easy).

Okay, now to the point. First of all I like you to thank for teaching me so much about Danish history. I never knew the Danish fleet was almost a big as the English in the 14 century. I think that also includes the merchant ships from the Hanze League. Also I didn't knew about the big size of Denmark in that time (with Sweden and Germany and the Baltic States and all) and I think that was the area of the Hanze either.

Secondly you must make a difference between Scandinavia and the Scandinavian Peninsula. The Scandinavian Peninsula is only Zweden and Norway. Scandinavia as a region is bigger, in actually contains Iceland, Norway. Sweden, Finland, Denmark and the Baltic states. That is, roughly, entire Northern Europe.

Thirthly, If somebody can make a mod about a country like Denmark, can somebody make one of the Netherlands as well? I can't do it myself. The Netherlands was a massive trading power in the 16th century. It had a very big marchant fleet (we had 4 Seawars with the English, which we all won and in which we cruched the English fleet totaly . Als the Portugese and Spanish were quite afraid of our fleet, making the country the major country in the known world. We had colonies in the Caribean, Brasil, US east coast, African coast (including nowaday Capetown), Sri Lanka, Indonesia and we were, together with the Spanish, the only European nation that was allowed to trade with China and Japan.

Wow, this post became quite long. I hope at least somebody has something for the message.

*sigh* :)

You make a .pcx file in the same size as all other leaderheads, and then you make that file into some other files which are needed, and a .flc file with 121 frames. Therefter you look in some of the txt files in your Civ3 folder, and changes what is neccesary.:crazyeye:

I was able to install this mod, but there are some strange effects in the diplomacy. Danes don't offer any kind of greeting, and usually the goodbye says something like #AIWHATEVER . Some of the intermediate steps in diplomacy seem readable, though.

I have not changed my diplomacy.txt, and I see that it is not included in the zip. I think that is why. According to the tutorial here at

http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?=&threadid=21622

there are changes to make in diplomacy.txt, depending on the number of civs.

I think I remember someone on Apolyton that posted a longer diplomacy.txt for up to 31 civs. Maybe I'll try it instead...

swagled
Dec 21, 2002, 02:21 AM
I found the 31 civ diplomacy.txt file at Apolyton... but I think it's either buggy, or just too big. I'm going to try making a smaller, 17 civ diplomacy.txt with the editor from Pesloco "Save The Possum" and see how that goes.

swagled
Dec 21, 2002, 02:05 PM
That was it! :)

Any time a new civ is added, you have to expand diplomacy.txt (this file is in your TEXT folder under Civilization III)

I'll attach the one I'm using here, in case anybody else needs it, or the authors here decided to include it in a v1.6 of the Danish civ. Keep in mind that if you ever add an 18th civ after Denmark, you have to add more text to the file. (I used Pesloco's editor to add the 17th civ text.)

The new text is not specific to Denmark or Christian IV, because it's just copies of things all the other civs say. You could replace Denamrk with some other 17th civ in the future, and you'd get the same words.

OT: I've always seen it this way also, but my dictionary includes Denmark as well. Maybe it's because nowadays people think Scandinavians = former Vikings (who were from Denmark, Norway and Sweden). It doesn't matter really.

It's nice to see a danish mod, I'll try it soon. And keep the Precisian, the longboat belongs to a Viking civ.
