[BtS] American Civil War

Coming soon...
American Civil War Mod

History:
Spoiler:
The American Civil War (1861–1865) was a civil war between the United States of America (the "Union") and the Southern slave states of the newly formed Confederate States of America under Jefferson Davis. The Union included all of the free states and the five slave holding border states and was led by Abraham Lincoln and the Republican Party. Republicans opposed the expansion of slavery into territories owned by the United States, and their victory in the presidential election of 1860 resulted in seven Southern states declaring their secession from the Union even before Lincoln took office. The Union rejected secession, regarding it as rebellion.

Hostilities began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate forces attacked a U.S. military installation at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. Lincoln responded by calling for a large volunteer army, then four more Southern states declared their secession. In the war's first year, the Union assumed control of the border states and established a naval blockade as both sides massed armies and resources. In 1862, battles such as Shiloh and Antietam caused massive casualties unprecedented in U.S. military history. In September 1862, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation made ending slavery in the South a war goal, which complicated the Confederacy's manpower shortages.

In the East, Confederate commander Robert E. Lee won a series of victories over Union armies, but Lee's reverse at Gettysburg in early July, 1863 proved the turning point. The capture of Vicksburg and Port Hudson by Ulysses S. Grant completed Union control of the Mississippi River. Grant fought bloody battles of attrition with Lee in 1864, forcing Lee to defend the Confederate capital at Richmond, Virginia. Union general William Sherman captured Atlanta, Georgia, and began his famous March to the Sea, devastating a hundred-mile-wide swath of Georgia. Confederate resistance collapsed after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865.

The war, the deadliest in American history, caused 620,000 soldier deaths and an undetermined number of civilian casualties, ended slavery in the United States, restored the Union by settling the issues of nullification and secession and strengthened the role of the Federal government. The social, political, economic and racial issues of the war continue to shape contemporary American thought.


Made for BtS 3.19. English only text support.

here's a link to the development thread if anyones interested in a more detailed development history.

American Civil War mod is a full conversion mod with many rule changes, new tech tree, civics, improvements, civs, units, and much much more.
__________________________________________________

Technologies:
45 new/edited technologies including techs like Improved Breech Loading, Repeating Rifle, and Guerrilla Warfare.

Units: Many new units and unit arts. Every civ has its own unique unit art styles. Many types of rifleman and cannon, all with some uniqueness and special abilities. The Mongol Camp is reintroduced as a Sioux Camp. Also Commanders and Lieutenants are introduced we'll talk more about that later.

Promotions: Many new promotions. 17 new promotions just for Commanders and Lieutenants alone, plus all the ones from Super Spies and more still...

Buildings: Several new buildings though most of these aren't available on the current release.

Wonders/National Wonders: Several new national wonders including Cannon Manufactories, Weapons Manufactories, The Citadel (UB national wonder), West Point is now a UB national wonder plus much more on the way...

Specialist: Priest and Great Priest are now Ideologist and Great Ideologist. Will add slave specialist for next release.

Base Terrains: 4 new terrains, Marsh, Boreal Forest, Arid Plains, and Wasteland. Some BlueMarble terrains, some terrains are better than BlueMarble.

Terrain Features: Battlefields from DCM are enabled, increased movement cost in some cases.

Resources: 26 new resources including the likes of Alcohol, Improved Cartridges, Apples, Lemons, Cotton, Tobacco, Cannon Parts and much much more. Also most civs can produce their own types of Ammo, for example Union Ammo, which is required certain unit types to stimulate weapons trades.

Improvements and Routes: 5 new Improvements; Apple orchard, Olive Orchard, Shaft Mine, Modern Mine, and Trenches. 1 new route type, Paved Roads.

Civilizations: 7 historical civilizations/leaders all with 3d LH's and custom Flags.

Traits: 3 new traits, Agricultural, Strategic, and Nomadic

Civics: 15 new/edited civics, including the likes of Martial Law, Reconstruction, Confederation and much more...

Ideologies: Ideologies replace religion in ACW. Only two ideologies are available for now, Yankee, and Dixie. Also changes to ideological buildings and units.

Music:
All new authentic American Civil War music. Re-recorded and preserved by the Library of Congress in the early 1900's. You will be stunned at the quality.

Map: The most realistic North America map created for civ4. Complete with WinterMod, the ice and snow on the map will literally change with the seasons! The WinterMod does quite a bit of work, so on the occasional turns where the winter changes the in-between turn times will be slow, but otherwise it is roughly the same speed as BtS. Note that the first turn is extraordinarily slow because both wintermod and AI deciding what to do en mass all at once.

Events: Many events specific to the American Civil War including part of the succession, the emancipation proclamation and much more. Not available on current release.

Victory Conditions: Most of the victory conditions have been removed. On the next release there will be a new a permanent victory point score, similar to that of the Rise of Rome mod.

Other mods and mod components included in American Civil War:
RevolutionDCM which also includes:
Revolutions (SDK, Python, XML)
Dales Combat Mod (SDK, XML)
Influence Driven War (SDK, XML)
Revolution Inquisitions (Python, XML)
Super Spies (SDK, XML)
BUG, BULL Mod (Python, XML)
WoC Mod (SDK, Python, XML)
Better BTS AI (SDK)

Mod Components created by killmeplease:

Commanders (SDK, Python, XML)
Defender Withdrawal (SDK)
Occasional Promotions (SDK)
__________________________________________________

By default the options that are enabled are:

Battle Effects:
Ever wanted to see plumes of smoke from the battleground? Well this component is for you.

Ranged Attack:
Ranged Attack allows gunpowder units to fire a volley at adjacent plots. In this way they can damage enemy units before combat. Works the same as Archer Bombard from DCM, now only for certain gunpowder units (mainly sniper & modern riflemen types).

Attack Support:
Your units that are adjacent to one another will support each other in an attack

Ranged Bombardment:
Ranged Bombardment allows siege units to bombard in the field. By selecting your target location you can select whether to bombard units, improvements or cities.

Opportunity Fire:
Opportunity Fire allows fortified bombard capable units (such as artillery) to automatically barrage enemy units which close on the position.

Influence Driven War Combat Influence:
Military units affect surroundings via combat influence. After each combat between two units some amount of culture accumulated in each square of combat area is transferred from loser player to winner player. Combat area (i.e. influence radius) is: attacker plot, defended plot and near surrounding plots This way we try to simulate effect of battle victory: some peoples have tendency to give up and flip to victorious side.

Influence Driven War Pillage Influence:
When enemy unit pillages tile improvement, some amount of accumulated culture is transferred from improvement owner to unit owner. Only single square is affected.

Inquisitions:
The Ideological Advocates can remove ideologies from domestic cities. Note the domestic part, all other parts of this modcomp are disabled.

Commanders:
Each time a unit win a battle, a Commander or Lieutenant standing on a same plot with it receives XP. They can get levels and obtain promotions as an ordinary unit would, but its promotions affect all units in its stack. They can also earn promotions to increase their command range to affect units on surrounding plots, making the battlefields in ACW like no other.

Defender Withdrawal:
Units with withdrawal ability can escape combat while defending. If defender withdraws, the battle with a next defender starts. If there is only one defender, it has more moves than the attacker and it is about to die, it will try to escape from battle plot in the direction opposed to attacker. If there are no free plots to withdraw to, it will be killed.

Occasional Promotions:
Makes it possible for units to receive promotions in non-ordinary way: any unit has a chance to get a free promotion depending on how well and in what conditions it fights. The tougher the battle it fights, higher chance for it to get a promotion. The type of free promotion is determined by the battle conditions and promotions your unit already has.

With this unique combination of mod components and content, the American Civil War mod offers unique game play with a realistic approach, that should be fun for all.

Interesting. Really would be nice if you could get animated leaderheads, though. I think someone has an animated Jeff Davis. I'd especially like to see an animated Benito Juarez (not least of which b/c I could use him in other mods! )

Looks like the CSA flag got slightly chopped -- might need to move the stars further in in the blue field.

Also...this thread might be better placed in the "Scenarios" forum....

I think I may have someone working on new LH's and other art ... and yes some of the flags maybe need to be re-done, they've been re-used from my early modding days. Oops...

No to the new thread, this is a full blown modification, just read the spoiler, it changes civiilizations, leaders, units, buildings, art, music, civics, religions, ideologies, corporations, resources, events, and many other things... This is an early version, hence 0.12, its not complete yet by any means. There isn't a scenario included in v0.12 anyhow.

Oh -- so it's not going to play out on a map of North America?

It will eventually, but it does not have a scenario/map right now. I wanted to make sure all res icons and python was working before I went much further, by the number of downloads and no complaints I suppose its ok.

I guess it could be classified as a scenario, but a rather intensive one. The map will be just like the old Eastern United States map that came with vanilla, only a little larger, to give England, Spain, and France at least a little homelands, and to show the Caribbean a little better. It'll probably be about "huge" size.

I've basically been working on this all night, its going quite well

I opened up the game and saw that I was building warriors. I thought it would be just in the time frame around the civil war.

I would do an advanced start and limit the later techs for this. Is it your intention that the game is played out through all of history ?

mice - yes it is supposed to be like that at the moment, most of the work done in v0.12 is removing stuff that will definitely not be used, fixing the res icons, fixing some screens, and some other various stuff.

The next version will have the majority of the new units, buildings, new technology tree (near complete overhaul), Seals Formation mod, new UI, and some other various new features. It might even have a rudimentary map.

Then in another release, it'll have a very detailed scenario, finishing anything that isn't done yet, and events to mimic the war, and other features. It'll be made to only be played from 1861 - 1866ish

keldath - thanks, development is continuing daily, many times My unreleased test version has tons of new stuff already, I about fell out of my chair earlier, when I found a reskin of just about every unit for the Sioux Nation made by bernie14

Interesting. However, consider that maybe just having it focused on North America would be best -- Britain would own Canada, Spain had Cuba and Puerto Rico, and France would have a Caribbean island or two plus could be given control of Veracruz (and would be at war w/Mexico....)

OK I get it. Very early stages just yet. This era will make for some great play. Kudos

Thanks for your interest everyone. Yea, its still fairly early in development, the released version is approximately 12% complete, my test version is closer to 25%, but not quite... Tons of new stuff has been added, and being added every day.

Here's a picture of the working Tech Tree if anyones interested. I could maybe use some help fixing a few things, but I've done a ton of research, its mostly complete. I've added lots of pre-civil war technologies, to give a base upon to build new technologies... A few things are mis-named, Like "Artillery" should be "Breech Loading Artillery" and a few others.... True Breech Loading Artillery never existed in the civil war, but its technology was developed around this time and it was realized shortly after. There are still a few things that need touched up, but its working, and mostly complete. I probably won't add/remove more techs unless someone points out something crucial. This is meant to not be 100% accurate, but mostly accurate, with allowance for what should be good gameplay and fun. Its mostly accurate, but I wanted to leave some "What if" parts to it, they still make sense and are plausible.

Hello,

I am sorry to say, but without a map the whole war is no fun .. I mean the idea of the American Civil War (as Union) is to ally with the Western States, before the South does, is to march till Atlanta and to get hold of Gettysburg, isnt it ????

Apart from this you already made huge progress !!

I hope I don't have to keep repeating myself. The map will come eventually. If you know how to mod, you would know that, that is the easy part. I could build you a map in a few hours. Building this will take months, perhaps a year doing it all by myself like has been the case. Its not meant to be played fully right now. As I've already stated several times, this is an early test version, I wanted to confirm that the res icons and python were working. Its been quite awhile, nearly 250 downloads, and not a single response telling me if those are working correctly. I'm working on much harder things than a map.

Civil War v0.24 released. Still not including a scenario. Many other features have been added, DCM, Seal's Formations, animated LH's for all, new tech tree is there, although not balanced, and many other things. See the 1st post v0.24 spoiler or in the download page for details. This is still quite an early release but due to a couple request v0.24 is here now. The next version will balance techs and civics out better, add a rugged map, and finish other small things that need attention before a true scenario begins to take place.

Brilliant. dl - ing now. For me the map isn't such a big issue. I plan to set up a custom game on a small pangea or plains map.

Good news about DCM.

yea its still by no means finished, but honestly, most of the hard stuff is out of the way. I have ton of stuff to sift through and add new units, buildings ect., but thats really not too bad, compared to merging python or editing game fonts (at least for me).... The XML stuff should be a breeze. Also buttons are easy, so the only thing holding me back is models, although I have quite a few to sift through from the CFC community. Most artist have already been mentioned in the credits, although some of their art isn't in v0.24, it will be soon.

I've already fixed all the pedia text for the technologies and some other small details. I guess its about time to add a ton of units/buildings, and continue balancing the tech tree and civics.

DCM appears to be quite perfect for this scenario. At least in my eyes. Plus all the settings can be easily adjusted by any user.

Also added a big reference section to the first post. It will continue to grow as the project does.
