    Patch 1.95a

    Description

    Diversica is a module for Civilization IV Beyond the Sword which adds additional graphics and some minor gameplay changes (new units, techs and resources).

    It includes both Ethnically Diverse Units and Cultural Citystyles. You can consider it an alternative to Varietas Delectat.

    Diversica uses the RevolutionDCM mod to ease having separate installable sub-modules on top of the core mod. All optional sub-modules are included in the download and can be selected upon installation.

    Why Diversica
    Spoiler :

    When I found Danrell's units I wanted to include them in my game, as there was no module which did so, I created my own.

    As I assume other people also are interested in adding his units easily, I added it here. The module has since progressed beyond including Danrell's units, the focus remains on civilization-specific units however.

    I decided to call the mod Diversica (instead of Diversity) as the word 'diversity' is used frequently, so whoever is searching for it will find all kinds of unrelated links. Calling it Diversica should solve this.


    Why base it on RevolutionDCM / WoC
    Spoiler :

    The initial focus of Diversica was to add civ-specifc unit graphics and to allow the player to plug and unplug the changes based on his own preferences. To that end Diversica included information on how to unplug the different parts. As Diversica grew, technical restrictions of the regular xml format prevented the unplugging of certain parts.

    To overcome this problem and allow for a fully pluggable mod again, I converted Diversica to the WoC xml format and use an installer which allows the selection of sub-modules.

    Diversica is as a stand-alone module which contains RevolutionDCM which in turn includes the WoC Lite features.
