This pack is designed to give Civ V's civilizations more variety to their color schemes, while increasing clarity and consistency. Some color combinations in the vanilla game are a bit lazy, like the monochrome Brazil, Spain, and Babylon. It better differentiates civs such as Portugal and Greece, who both share a white and blue combination.
The pack also aims to fix some common complaints. Ethiopian units are now easily distinguished from barbarians. Austria and Poland have the correct colored birds, but have more unique reds.
Because 43 civs is a lot, it's difficult to give every civ a completely unique combination without resorting to ugly palettes or non-historic colors. As a result, some civs are a bit similar, but hopefully are distinguishable enough. If you have trouble, try adjusting the brightness or contrast of your monitor.
Installation:Code:v 3.0 02-07-2019 Structural overhaul as DLC mod - RCI is now a much more compact and standalone component, which should reduce compatibility problems. fixed: - Last played civ has default icons instead of RCI's (when installed as a mod) - "More Luxuries" incompatibility: tile improvements can't be built on More Luxuries tiles (when installed as MPMPM DLC - this seemed to be true of all MPMPM packs, not just RCI) - Game crashes at Renaissance due to errors in Mongol data (when installed by overwriting assets)
Place the RCI folder in the DLC folder of your main Civ V directory.
