Game of Thrones / ASOIAF Mod for BTS (v 0.1) 2016-10-05

Game of Thrones / ASOIAF Mod for BTS (v 0.1)

  1. TheBeast
    GAMES OF THRONES MOD (v 0.1)

    Intro:

    Here's a mod for Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword that I made based on the "A Song of Ice and Fire" universe books by George RR Martin (and now the HBO Series 'Game of Thrones'). This mod includes a map (which I also made) and a corresponding scenario I built using the world builder. Right now, the mod IS playable, but is only in the very rough first stages. It should play almost exactly like vanilla BTS, but with some minor changes to some units and civs. I have plans to keep working on this until we get a decently unique mod (new tech tree, units, civics, etc.). This is my first mod, so the only alterations I've made have been to the xml files and the art files (haven't touched python).

    Civilizations:
    Spoiler :

    The North - Robb Stark
    House Bolton - Roose Bolton
    House Frey - Walder Frey
    The Riverlands - Edmure Tully
    The Vale - Lysa Arryn
    The Iron Islands - Balon Greyjoy
    The Westerlands - Tywin Lannister
    Dragonstone - Stannis Baratheon
    The Reach - Mace Tyrell
    The Stormlands - Renly Baratheon
    Dorne - Doran Martell


    Scenario Setting (major spoilers ahead for the book "A Game of Thrones" and for Season 1 of HBO's 'Game of Thrones'):

    Spoiler :
    The scenario takes place at the beginning of the War of the Five Kings, right after Eddard Stark's death. The North, The Riverlands, Dragonstone and The Stormlands are at war with the Westerlands. Dragonstone is also at war with the Stormlands. House Frey are vassals of the Riverlands and House Bolton are vassals of the North.


    Installation Instructions:

    Extract .rar file and place the folder 'Game of Thrones' in location: Sid Meier's Civilization 4 > Beyond the Sword > Mods

    Place the "Clash of Kings Scenario.worldbuildersave" file in your Beyond the Sword>Saves>World Builder Saves folder.

    Go back to the Game of Thrones folder (should now be in the "Mods" folder under "Beyond the Sword"). Open the shortcut provided (labeled "Game of Thrones"). Give it a moment to load. Be patient.

    To play the scenario, go to: Single Player > Play Scenario and select the Clash of Kings Scenario. That should do it! Let me know in the forum (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=11383754#post11383754) if you have any problems with installation.

    If anyone thinks of a easier or faster way of getting this going, let me know.



    FYI and Thank You:

    I made this entirely on my own except for the leaderheads (taken from google images, i do not own them) and the unit graphic for the Greyjoy 'Ironborn' (thanks to Bakuel). I did get a lot of advice from everyone on my scenario forum though (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=432119). Special thanks to AdrienIer.


    Please provide feedback in the forum! (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=11383754#post11383754). I can use all the help I can get. If anyone wants to help out with the modding, let me know!
