    • July 27, 2013 Update
      • Barbarians don’t exist in Tamriel, but Bandits do! Say hello to your new little friends!
      • Difficulty level names changed to fit TES
      • Month names changed to fit TES
      • Tamriel doesn’t have Giant Death Robots, but they do have Numidium!
      • Addition to Cyrodiil’s trait – Imperial Generals may start golden ages! Imperial Generals also have unique names.
      • 2 New maps, both Standard sized maps to reduce the drag on your PC. Number of city-states reduced to 16 in these maps.
        • 1st map is set for war! All 13 civs on the same standard-sized map! Should be interesting!
        • 2nd map is just for the Sovereign Empires of Tamriel. Orsinium, the Ayleids, Dwemereth, and Oblivion are removed from this map.
      • Dwemer now shun religion and follow themselves - “Dwemerism” :)
    • July 20, 2013 - Barbarians are back on the Map! (thanks to SamBC for enlightening me of the fix!)
    • Planned Updates – Great Works (Primarily writing, some art as well), re-naming of World Wonders, possibly another civ or two!
    • You must start a new game after updating - You likely will not be able to load your old save with the new version of the mod. So if you want to finish the game you are currently in, wait to update until after you are done and are ready to start a new game

    Tamriel Maps with True Start Locations

    Can't find the maps?
    If you don’t see the maps (they should appear first on your list of maps) - double check your Documents/My Games/Civ V/Mods/TES CIV V folder to ensure that the map files are in there, if they are, you will want to COPY both of them into Documents/My Games/Civ V/Maps folder.

    How to use the included Tamriel maps with true start locations
    1)Mods, 2)Accept, 3)Next, 4)Single Player, 5)Set Up Game, 6)Map Type, 7)Choose your Tamriel Map, 8) Click Load Scenario (make sure the check mark appears), 9)Start Game.

    After clicking on Load Scenario (found just below the name of the map) **Advanced Setup will darken, as this is supposed to happen.

    Due to an unresolved issue, Random Civilization is the only thing selectable, you will start as Cyrodiil after clicking *Start Game* --- If that is who you want to play as, go ahead, its all good from here......

    however, if you want to play as anyone else besides Cyrodiil
    • Go ahead and start the game with random civilization selected (you will start as Cyrodiil)
    • Then back out to the main menu
    • Once you get back to the set up game screen and click Load Scenario again, you will be able to choose any of the 13 civs from the mod!
    Not hard, but still a little bit of a hassle. **This only happens when first starting a new game, you can load you saved games normally without doing this!**

    Special thanks

    Jediravenclaw for creating the leader screens and Dawn of Man screens for Elsweyr, Orisinium, Morrowind, Valnewood, and High Rock!
