[BTS Module] Great Ones 2016-10-05

Great Ones Mod; A Lovecraftian Civilization
Modular Civilization
Version 0.5
by Crezth

Details: Once about two years back I discovered someone had made a mod for Vanilla civ: Lovecraftian Civilization with Nyarlathotep as the leader! By itself simply another mod, but with the release of BTS I felt inspired to, in effect, recreate the civ in Module form. Naturally a lot of the things are different (I have since lost said mod), but the basic idea is the same: a civilization modeled after Lovecraftian mythology.

Great Elder Empire - Itself complete with two dozen city names taken from various spots in Lovecraftian mythology. From Kadath to Dunwich, familiar city names ahoy.
Cthulhu Leader - Nyarlathotep as a leader was an interesting idea, but Cthulhu has one thing old Nya lacks - name recognition. Cthulhu is Protective/Aggressive.
Shoggoth UU - A unique unit which replaces the knight, the Shoggoth has a strategy all its own.
Asylum UB - Replaces the Library, offering happiness, science and culture. Liable to change in future editions.
Partially Finished Civilopedia - A lot of empty (or broken) Civilopedia entries for this Great Ones Mod.

More leaders - Such as Nyarlathotep, Yog-sothoth, etc. For future editions; Cthulhu is fine for now.
More UU - There are so many UUs which have the potential to be added.
Finished Civilopedia - Assuming I get around to it.

Current Version is - 0.5

Instructions: Unzip the Great Ones.Zip, and put the Great Ones folder (the one with the assets) into your Civilization 4/Beyond the Sword/Mods folder, and run it normally after launching Beyond the Sword. Or you can extract the Module and put it in another Mod.
