NOTICE!
Im sorry to say that I can no longer support this, little mod and to keep it up to date. However if some one is interested in helping out keeping it alive feel free to contact me. It would be free and all up to you what you’d like to change with it as long as it’s still based on Sweden obviously; there are alot of good suggestion for what could be changed in this thread as well.

All I would request is that my name is kept in the credits.

I’m hoping this wont cause to much inconvenience and lastly A BIG THANK for all the support from you all.

Why settle for one, make four! That way you can use all eight traits, two for every leader. Something for any style of gameplay for anyone who plays Sweden with your mod.

As for other leaders, I suggest Gustavus II Adolphus, Princess Madleine and Kim Il Goran Persson.

I have completed Gustav II he will follow with the next version, hopefully i will be done with it already this weekend. I gave him organization and Industry since he was behind evolving the financial and law systems in Sweden as well building new universities and courthouses. Further more a more diverse Industry bloomed during his rule. His special Civic is Pacifism even if he saw a lot of war it was something he deeply didn’t like and called it the root of all bad in society.

The Karolin’s have yet been given a special but I am leaning towards instead of making them stronger making them faster to train since the most men that where Karolin’s where actually ordinary citizens doing military training a few times every year as long as they where fit to do military service. Thus when called upon for battle (trained) they should have the most basic training already and the last training part should go fast.

Comments please.

May I suggest making Gustavus Organized and Spiritual. You already have a leader with Industrious trait, so you'll get more diversity with another trait, plus, in his time, he was the defender of the protestant faith, in 30 years war.

Very well you have a good point i will do some testing with spiritual as trait instead. If i may ask what do you think about the idea to give Karolins half production time as there special?

50% is a bit too much, 25% discount maximum. So, make them cost 75% of normal musketman cost.

How I've waited for Sweden as a playable civ!
This add-on looks great, can't wait to try it!

May I suggest though, that you change the name of Gustav II to either Gustav II Adolf or Gustavus Adolphus (as most non-swedes know him as).
I don't know why, but somehow Gustav II without the Adolf reminds me of Gustav III who in my opinion must have been the meekest king throughout world history. All categories, all countries! ;)

Fantastic work, Wazdix! I usually don't play many mods, but I fell in love with this one.
I had never realized what a great feeling it can be to play as your own nation. Suddenly I can relate to all the cities I found; they're not just names anymore, but my own countrymen - I can imagine what dialects they speak, what football and icehockey teams they root for, and so on. And that made me take it much more personal when Tokugawa started a war against me and actually managed to annex Göteborg.
Gustav II Adolf is my new favourite leader. I prefer the Spiritual and Organized traits, and was already playing as Asoka a lot, so it made me very happy to discover that you've given Gustav those traits too. :D

Well the earth map is a World Editor save with all civilizations already determend so if you want to play sweden you need to change the save file. Though i tried to see if you could replace some civilization with a new one in a save though dident find any way to do it atlest not in the world editor.

* The English term for "Karolin" is "Carolean".

I'm sorry but I don't that Karl XII is a good leader, cause he was a pig, he hated the swedish weather and climate(I've been told that he was considering to emigrate from sweden:S), and because of him we lost all of our conquered area's:S So I think Gustav Vasa would be a better choice!

So this is a great idea, will play it first thing when I get home today.

Must agree with poster above that said Gustav Wasa is a better choice of leader than Karl XII. To be honest Ive never understood why Karl is considered cool in any way. I know he won in Narva and such, but he was the one that lost everything. Gustav II Adolf is the hero and as a second leader after him I would say Gustav Wasa.

Again, great work!

i'd say the opposite. i don't really understand why everybody dislikes karl XII.

he was crowned king at the age of 14 and only two years later all neighbouring countries (denmark, saxony-poland and russia) declared war, thinking it would be an easy match against this child king. but he conquered all of them. and the most famous battle, the battle of narva, made him famous all over europe as the young military genius who conquered a russian army three times as big. though later on, while conquering in poland, russia attacked again and that is when karl XII made his first great mistake. he marched with 44000 men towards moscow (a popular mistake).

after that the setbacks never ended and yes, sweden's time as superpower ended during his reign. but to blame him only for it is a little too simple i'd say. sweden's golden age was almost completely a long time of war. in the long run sweden could never afford all these wars. sweden was too short of both money and population. sooner or later the aggressive wars would end and the defensive wars would take over. unfortunately karl XII's reigning period were filled with them. when he died in battle at the age of 36 he had more or less been out at war his whole life (when he returned to sweden in 1714 after fighting down on the continent he hadn't been home in sweden for about 16 years).

i guess what made him so popular before was the simple life he lived (without the luxuries most king couldn't be without), his military achievements and the way he gave it all for "greater glory" (not really the swedish way today...). he is a legend, or at least he was. today it is kind of politically incorrect to admire a war king, and unfortunately the neonazis have grabbed him as their hero. but apart from all that i don't think he should be so unpopular today and more than that i think it's wrong to only blame hime for the "fall of the empire".

i definitely agree with you though, that he wasn't the best king. the ones you named were great, along with many others. this reply is waaay too long...:rolleyes:

I agree with you guys that Karl XII wasn't the best of Kings but as previoulsy stated, he was born into war at a very young age, so I guess my vote for the Karl family goes to Karl XI. When Karl XI complained abouth Swedish weather just shows that he was a bright boy with common sense. ;)

Gustav Adolf makes a good leader and was maybe the greatest along with Vasa.

In the current version those danish citys are in though i have a few version im testing out for next update and one of the possibel changes are the removing of them. Though the reason i put them in in the first place is since they actualy been in swedish possesion for some time and i dident know if any danish mod uses them. To make its short i havent really decided yet what way to go.

Futher more i have made 2 more learders Vasa and Per Albin the father of the swedish "Folkhemmet" however this would as well require two more player colors for sweden and there would be a chance of 4 swedish civs in a game :P. But with this said i could realease diffrent versions so you could chose what two leaders you want in the mod.

So id very much like to hear peoples opinions on these issues.

Futher more if some one is intrested in puting togheter a scandinavian civ mod feel free to include my work, just include me in the creeds and i be happy.

Hehe, it's tradition. You will need to come and taunt in threads about Denmark as well.

Well, about the cities I feel it most proper that a civs list should only contain cities only founded by that nation though of course there are exceptions, most notably in Civ3 where we had both Byzantium and Constantinople. Possibly Kiev as well.

The area has been Swedish for roughly 350 years so it doesn't seem right to include them. I know that if I was to make a Danish mod I would definately include them as Lund and Malmo were very important Danish cities.

How does it deal with cities in Finland? I assume many of those were founded by Swedes.

Anyway, it's your mod so you should make it however you wish :)

As the renaming cities in your possession *in the game* is so easy, the inclusion of some places that were lost in wars in *real history* should not be a big problem.

Personally, I think the Danish "empire" is great! Only slightly less great
than the Swedish "empire". :)

Should a city in Civilization belong to the Civ that founded it? That would, for example, make Dublin a Norweigan town. I think it's up to the creator to decide. Maybe Malmö and Lund should be among the last cities in the Swedish citylist?

Here is some history facts for those who are interrested;
Skåne (Scania) came under Danish rule in the 970s, when Harald Bluetooth conquered the land. Lund is believed to be founded in 990, slightly north of the ancient village of Uppåkra, a trading center and place for a great temple.
Malmö is first mentioned in the mid- 1200s. It became a town 1437 during the period of the Scandinavian union ("Kalmarunionen"). Skåne came under Swedish rule in 1658.

Fredrik Reinfeldt hasen't any power jet. The Swedish party the Socialdemokraterna has been in power for 66 years of 70. After WW2 Sweden, USA and Switzerland didn't have to build up their country, and could use money on making the country better wellfare and stronger economically. Look at the GDP per capita:

USA: $41,800 (2005 est.)
Sweden: $29,600 (2005 est.)
Switzerland: $35,000 (2005 est.)
Germany: $29,700 (2005 est.)

Even Germany, which was almost destroyed by the war, has a higher GDP per capita than Sweden!

Ingvina Freyr
Mar 08, 2006, 07:13 AM
I think it's a bad idea to involve modern politics in the game. Any person used as a leader should be "comfortably dead". Therefore I have a suggestion that surely fits the description;

Bröt-Anund :king: 600-640 ca. Exp/Org fav. civic: democracy
The sagas says that Anund was a good and juste king that used his wealth to break new ground so that the people could settle new lands. He built bridges and roads (Bröt means road, and is a nickname given by his people), and organized the military. The country prospered under his reign.

Nice mod, I've always missed the Swedes in Civ! :D

I agree on the cities, a civ should mostly have cities founded by the civ itself. And there isn't a lack of cities in Sweden (with Swedish measures... ;) ).

Here's a list of cities founded by Swedes (Stockholm first, then medieval cities and then more modern).

I don't know what the city maximum is, so I've included quite a few.

Stockholm
Uppsala
Kalmar
Åbo
Gävle
Norrköping
Viborg
Sigtuna
Västerås
Linköping
Hedemora
Jönköping
Arboga
Örebro
Borgå
Skara
Visby
Köping
Nådendal
Eksjö
Lidköping
Kexholm
Lödöse
Raumo
Kungälv
Strängnäs
Vadstena
Söderköping
Vimmerby
Västervik
Växjö
Nyköping
Östhammar
Enköping
Öregrund
Falköping

Falun
Björneborg
Eskilstuna
Uleåborg
Luleå
Tavastehus
Borås
Sala
Tammerfors
Sundsvall

City names are a difficult thing... Take Riga, the capital of Latvia as an example. It was founded by germans during the Hansa period. Under swedish rule (1621-1710) it was the largest city of Sweden and today it's the capital of Latvia... With a history like that, and this is far from everything, which country can include Riga? Germany? Russia? Sweden? Poland? Latvia? Maybe another country? I don't really think many people would include it among german cities...

I wouldn't be totally unhappy to see cities and former swedish provinces included. After all, that is when you really feel how powerful Sweden once was.

About that swedish cities list... it sure was a nice list but what about Kiruna, Skellefteå, Borlänge, Motala, Mjölby, Skara, Karlsborg, Sigtuna and probably many more. I didn't think very hard now. Check Västergötland, Östergötland and Svealand more, that's after all the heart of Sweden.

Skara and Sigtuna are already in the list.
Kiruna was founded a bit too late for me to include it, in the late 19th century. Borlänge is also a 19th century town.

True, but...


Hakkapeliitta (plural Hakkapeliitat) was the name given in the Holy Roman Empire to the Finnish horsemen of :king: Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden during the Thirty Years' War. A Hakkapeliitta was also known as a Hackapelit, Hackapelite, Haccapelit, or Haccapelite.

The Finnish Hakkapeliitta Cavalry was first used during the Polish-Swedish Wars. In the early 17th century the cavalry led by Marshal Jacob De la Gardie conquered the Russian cities Novgorod and Moscow and in 1632 the cavalry led by General Gustaf Horn conquered much of Germany during the Thirty Years' War.

This could be a unit usable by both Finnish and Swedish Civs.....

Unique Units: Carolingians (Karoliner), Berserkr, Tank S (lowprofile tank with no tower), Bureaucrat connected to Swedens favorite civic Bureaucracy(havent totally figured out how these unit should function).

Favorit civics: Bureaucracy, democracy.

Projects(or wonder maybe?): Nobel Prize"

Would be great if this civ was developed further and remade to fit my favorite mods - total realism and sevo!

maybe add "ombudsman" as a uu of some sort?

How about doing this for warlords?

UU: the karolin musketeer replacement.. well i don't think swedish muskets was any special comparing with other countries
Swedish military power is in todays technology since Sweden has invested a lot in defense science.
Many should say "the jas-39" jetplane maybe, but that plane ain't that special compared to other nations products.
I would say http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/visby/

Yes, the Visby corvette. Sweden is about 10-20 years ahead USA and Russia when it comes to carbon fibre stealh boat technology, and if it was war-time today, this boat could have great impact on sea battles.

I say, let it replace destroyer, give it +50% extra submarine kill, and furthermore, extra anti air defense power, since there it has it strenghts.
Also swedish conventional (non-nuclear driven) submarines are considered to be the best of our time.

Also as a historical fact, the worlds second submarine was built in sweden. Sweden has a long history of naval construction (including the faulty ones like wasa ship =)

As a unique building, someone mentioned a forge replacement. But history tells that swedes was a bit after compared to europe when it came to that age. When denmark invaded sweden with knights, swedes hardly had longbowmen.
Swedens strenghts is still in modern day, and I would say a replacement for university, "kungliga tekniska högskolan" = "royal technical high school".
Think that even though sweden has 9 million population, sweden maintains and has top of the line technology all the time.
Let the KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan http://www.kth.se/eng/ ) have same stats as normal university, but give a free scientist. It fits that sweden had some great scientists & innovators the latest 200 years.
Everything from Alfred Nobel, Håkan Lans (Inventor of computer mouse, and VGA graphics), Carolus Linneus and so on.

I seem to remember that two of Gustav Adolphus' military innovations centered around the use of their artillery and the better use of cavalry in the age of Pike & Shot. Since the Russian UU is based on Cavalry, the only Unique Units I can come up with would be a variation on the Cannon -- perhaps something that would increase their use in the field? Perhaps they could get +25% versus Gunpowder units?

Still, I don't see anywhere in history where the swedish cannons where more advanced than the others during the same era.

Sweden has never been an technological advanced state before 20th century.

Everything started early 20th century, the early submarines, after WW2 sweden build the worlds fastest jetplane, the "SAAB Tunnan", and it kept the world record for almost a decade. Who knows how the result could have been if it was used during war-time.
Then advanced innovations on the Draken/Viggen jetplanes which where copied by other nations.

Someone mentioned the "stridsvagn S" battle tank.
I thought a bit of it, since it was designed for only swedish defending purposes, maybe it could be a modern armor unit who is allowed to use defensive bonus? (like conquestador)

Before 20th century, swedish science was focused on other things. Sweden hasn't been at war for over 2 centuries now. Being capable of manufacturing high tech today is something special this small nation is good at.

Still I would prefer a modern special unit for sweden, may it be a jet-plane, a stealth boat.. but I don't see any logical reason for better cannons etcetra since sweden quite sucked at that time. Sweden was almost overrun by russians, but got saved thanks to diplomacy.
Also, remember that Sweden is europes youngest nation (well I'm not counting the new yugoslavic countries now), still nobody knows an exact date when sweden was formed.

The vikings are already represented with their berserker unit, so swedes should be the modern alternative.

Also for civics, know that sweden is number 4 in the world in creating patents. Being a country consisting of 9 million citizens, that is heck of a good position. nr1 is japan, 2 usa, 3 germany.

I think PHI is a definite, and maybe FIN. Sweden was a strong economy after ww2, but today its average.
CRE maybe, not so big culture spreader (someone mentioned ABBA before =)
EXP is out of the question, no expanding here, today there is even negative growth in sweden.
AGG/IMP also out of question, peace for over 2 centuries says it all. (and "neutral" during WW2)
CHM maybe, people are satisfied in sweden
ORG could also be, small cities are very well developed in sweden.

Well, I'm finished for now =)

Sweden undoubtedly was most powerful in the time of 30-year war in XVII century. Thats why Swedish Civ should be based upon times your contry was at peak of its power, and resemble the reasons why you were so strong that time.

One of them is carolean infantry - well trained and equipped, it simply ruled the battlefields. Choosing it as UU for Sweden will place the maximum expansion possibilities in correct epoch. For me it will be "historically right". Any other unit you called in here, isn't even half as good as this one.

As for the UB, it is much harder case. This could be a forge replacement, as somebody mentioned before. It will perfectly go in hand with carolean infantry. But if you really want add something that will reflect contemporary times, you can think about hospital or research lab. I think your famous healthcare and educational system are basis for high values of Swedish "Human Development Index".

Traits: Karl XII - Organized and Aggressive
Gustav Adolph - Organized and (Philosophical, Spiritual, Creative)

BTW. There would be great scenario based upon fights for Dominium Mare Balticii (from 30-years war in XVII cnt. till Northern Wars in XVIII cnt.)

Styr
Sep 12, 2006, 11:38 AM
Completely agree with the guy above: Sweden's time in the sun was the 17th century and not modelling the civ after that is making a big mistake. First of all that's what people have heard of and when most will recognize Gustav Adolf or perhaps even Karl XII -not even many Swedish gamers will know who Per-Albin Hansson is. Sweden is an unimportant little back-water nowadays, it would simply not be interesting to play that, no matter how advanced the Visby class corvettes are.

About UU, Carolean infantry is probably the best choice. They did dominate battlefields, and were feared and respected in Europe. No disrespect to the Finns at all, but a Finnish UU would be silly - the Finns, who were considered as much Swedish citizens as any Dalecarlian or Smålandic peasant, had the same training and equipment as the rest of the Swedish army.

A ship of the line wouldn't make sense, the Swedish navy was strong but nothing special at all and its ships were not better or bigger than those of other navies. If you really want a naval UU, choose one of Chapman's archipelago frigates, they were truelly unique.

UB? I suggest something connected to the mining or cannon industry. Sweden was Europe's largest producer of cupper/iron ore as well as cannons. Especially Swedish steel was of finest quality during this era.

Sweden did have a big rise in scientific progress in the 18th, 19th (especially) and 20th centuries with scientists as Nobel, Polhem, Linnaeus, Ångström, Celsius, Berzelius+Scheele+Mosander (no other guys discovered as many elements as these), but you can't have everything.


For city names, I wouldn't hesitate to include a number of now Finnish towns. First off, Finland was considered a 'natural' part of Sweden through the majority of the past 1000 years and especially so during the time you model Sweden after. Further many of the towns were founded by Swedish kings anyhow and their power spread over Finland much as it spread over Swedish lands. Towns I'd definitly consider are Åbo, Viborg, Helsingfors, Björneborg, Uleåborg, Vasa and Tavastehus. I would avoid including Malmö, Lund and other Skåne-towns though.

* "University Hospital" or "County Hospital" (a monolithic bureaucratic hospital typical to Sweden) which provides two extra scientist slots and +3 health.
* Systembolaget (State liquor monopoly): Replaces Grocer, +10% commerce from Wine, Wheat and Corn
* Folkets hus ("The People's House", Labor movement community center): Replaces Jail, +2 Engineer slots
* Music Studio (representing world-famous bands like ABBA and Roxette, and producers like Denniz Pop and Max Martin): Replaces Broadcast Tower, produces 1 Hit Single, +1 free Artist

Nearly every country?

AFAIK, liquor monopoly is unique to Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland. The labor movement is stronger in Sweden than anywhere else and has more or less ruled the country since WW2. Sweden is the only non-English-speaking country in the world to have a net export of music.

There are many things unique to this country.

The list of cities should be limited to cities which have always been Swedish, so there is no controversy.

Also for civics, know that sweden is number 4 in the world in creating patents. Being a country consisting of 9 million citizens, that is heck of a good position. nr1 is japan, 2 usa, 3 germany.


No doubt, Sweden does have a lot per capita, but I don't know where you get that statistic.

It is 1. US 2. Japan 3. Germany 4. South Korea 5. Britain 6. France 7. Canada 8. China 9. Switzerland 10. Sweden

I hope somebody made a sweden-mod version for BtS & specially for the SpecialEdition. It would be very very greatfully...

Perhaps with new units, like the outstandig (Nazi)-Germany-Mod.

For example the Saab-aircrafts, like the Saab J22, B17, B18, J29 Tunnan,
Draken, Viggen and Gripen.

The typical camouflaged ships and vehicles etc.
And some variations of middle-age and 17th century units.

And a blond female Spygirl :)

I really hope that somebody is still working on this?!?

The link for the original Sweden is still there - it's the updated one (for BTS?) that's missing. I'm thinking of adding Sweden to my mod so I might work on this using the original file (BTS support of course).

original file for Warlords is here:

The UU looks fine though a bit weak perhaps (increase strength by 1 in addition to lower cost?). I don't like Gustav's traits - he designed the modern army, he should have at least one militaristic trait. Also, for the UB I'd replace the Bank with ABBA (replaces Broadcast Tower).
