    Huge Thanks for all the contributions from fellow civfanatics!

    I decided to share my savegames where after the next turn is played a steam achievement is granted or a major progress towards it is made.

    If you think that is cheating or lame, then don't do it. I though find myself screwing around in games just so I get the achievements. So the sooner I get all the achievements, I can move on playing games more seriously (like... without building oh so many workers and chopping every damn forest tile on the whole map and building a road on every single tile over and over again). Then there are a lot of players that use mods by default and therefore can not get achievements; however with these savegames they could quickly redeem what they legitimately achieved without actually getting the reward through theses saves (I think you even don't need to disable your mods). Of course you can also just chose to use these savegames if you are actually having trouble doing an achievement yourself. Don't blame me though if you regret having done it later :crazyeye:

    Protip: If you're searching for a specific achievement save use the search function of your browser which is usually accessed quickly by pressing CTRL+F (and/or F3 to search for the same term again).


    Keeping track of your achievements:
    Spoiler :
    Complete steam list with percentage of how many people actually got each achievement:
    http://steamcommunity.com/stats/CivV/achievements/
    (may take a few seconds to load/temporarily making the browser not respond)

    Achievement logging/achievements_debug.log:
    CiV has a logfile that shows track of how far into an achievement you actually are in (for e.g. which wonders you've build and how many forests, roads, mines erc you've built already). Once you see it, it's pretty much self-explanatory. You have to enable it first though (thx to DGMan):
    Go to C:\Users\YourName\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5 and open/edit the config.ini file.
    Change "LoggingEnabled = 0" (should be in the bottom half of the file) to "LoggingEnabled = 1" and save the file. The achievement logfile will start to update whenever you start CiV while being connected to steam.
    You can find the log file here:
    C:\Users\YourName\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\Logs\achievements_debug.log
    Note: The log file will only update when the game client is started. So you can't view your progress live. You'd have to shut the game down first and then restart the game before recent progress is displayed in the log.

    Spoiler :
    Secret links which have nothing to do with this thread (but help me to eliminate a bookmark or three):
    How to get rid of the ESRB notice: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=10226924&postcount=12 (steps have to be repeated after every patch though).
    GotM replay facility: http://gotm.civfanatics.net/Civ5/c5gotmreplay.php


    Contribute to this thread:
    You may actually also share your own achievement savegames here too. There will always be people appreciating it. I'll try
    to keep an updated list in the OP. Make sure though, that the upload site is not likely to (being) shut down sooner or later.
    I myself will use Dropbox (can't recommend a classic file hoster due to the reason just mentioned). If you chose to use Dropbox
    too, you might wanna use my referral link to register (as it will grant you and me 500 MB bonus free space for both our accounts).

    Also note:
    People will need all the DLC that the original player used to be able to load their save. You can temporarily disable individual or all DLC (allowing more people to use your save) by unchecking them from the DLC menu (before you start a game). This automatically resets to 'all DLC enabled' the next time you start up the game.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    What do I have to do to get the achievements? / It's not working for me, what am I doing wrong? / The load button can not be pressed???
    -Read the instructions/everything that I wrote along with the save file(s). Make sure you've put the savegames into the correct folder and you own all of the required DLCs.

    The percentages behind the achievements in square brackets show how many people actually got that achievement at the time of posting according to steam.


    Quick-Jump-Link to the post containing the Brave New World and Gods & Kings Achievements


    anmattos listed and linked saves to some more (somewhat trivial) achievements (that aren't mentioned here) in this posting.
    Thanks for that. I'm linking to them rather than putting it in the OP, because this way he is able to update it on his own :)

    Some comments about the Scenario:
    Spoiler :
    Polynesia as a civ is awesome. One of my favorites. The scenario however is utter crap in my eyes. Unbelieveable boring and it's exactly the same for every of the 4 polynesian 'tribes' you can play - no differences at all. You just send your scouts a few hundred tiles in some direction on a way too large map with about 99% water. After 130 or more turns of doing basically nothing you win. It's seriously extremely boring and pointless. The "random" map isn't even random, it's the same every time.

    FeiLing_DLC05_Lose_as_Korea.Civ5Save
    End the turn.
    Taekwon-DOH! (Lose as Korea) [0%]
    OH.MY.GOD. I've build exactly 420 scouts (worth 21k points) during this game.
    All died horribly in a suicide attack against Japan. Irony.


    Some comments about the Scenario:
    Spoiler :
    Playing as Korea (Deity) was fun. I can however see people get frustrated as they may be unable to hold off the initial Japanese attack on higher difficulties.
    Playing as China and as Japan however was pure torture as you basically have to move like 100 units every turn over the whole map manually (if you auto-move them it will chose a stupid long path over land instead of moving embarked). And when you finally reach the front you'll have a carpet of doom and you can't really progress forward at all. Moving your units takes ages here. Really painful. Playing Manchu was actually fun too. However it was surprisingly difficult even though I just played on settler.
    When I played this Scenario I suddenly got reminded why I hated CiV when it was first released and I got to play it a few times (just forgot about it and bought it in Steams Christmas Sale): It is utterly annoying to have cities build units within very little time (each 1,2,3 turns). It's even more annoying to move them all the way to the frontline. It takes so stupid long and is so boring. You are doing nothing but moving units across the map without any decision making. However you can't just give them auto-movement order to the other side of the map, because if the target tile is not free every other turn the command will end. And if you do auto-movement they'll take stupid paths over land taking much longer than if you manually embark them and move across the ocean. And finally auto-moving will move units into city tiles, which disables you from purchasing a unit in that city. Unit movement in this game is VERY VERY PAINFUL. Even more so in this Scenario where you do have so many units for just a long distance. I'd only ever consider replaying it as Korea. But lets not talk about the achievement for losing as Korea - at least I was able to calculate that I am indeed going to lose. If I played it to the end and failed at losing, I'd for sure have thrown my PC out of the window^^ I could probably have saved a few turns of constant scout movement mania if I gave away all my cities to Manchu for free while we were at peace like 10 turn before the end, not sure if that would actually have worked (as you for sure at least can't gift them Seoul).

    NOTE! The following DLCs are required:
    -Wonders of the Ancient World

    Instructions:

    Load the savegame. Tada! (Do not actually play this map, even if you're tempted to do so. You've been warned.)
    Dr. Heidegger's Experiment (Find the Fountain of Youth) [21.3%]
    The Explorer (Discover 100 Natural Wonders.) [9.0%]

    (Every time you load this savegame you'll discover 8 natural wonders instantly, so you'll quickly make progress towards this achievement.)

    FeiLing_El-Dorado-move-SW.Civ5Save
    Move the active Caravel one tile south (southwest or -east, shouldn't matter).
    Raleigh's Road to Riches (Discover El Dorado) [29.4%]

    FeiLing_HugeMap-Liz.Civ5Save
    Take Delhi.
    Video et Taceo (Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Elizabeth.) [8.6%]
    Ruler of the Twelve Colonies (Beat the game on a Huge Map.) [12.3%]


    FeiLing_Ruler-of-the-Seas_Liz357.Civ5Save
    Your ships are in position, don't move them around much. Keep them on Alert (A), sink barb ships whenever they pop up. Just keep playing
    turns and kill barb ships. Note: A cities attack will make the kill NOT count, a Longbowmen's attack however does count). Do not research
    Combustion, as that will make Barbs start to spawn Destroyers. When you've been forced to research combustion, just re-load the save.
    You can also try to slow down research a bit by selling science buildings (thanks for the tip @ clint0601).
    Ruler of the Seas (As Elizabeth, sink and destroy 357 enemy naval units, across any number of playthroughs.) [0.2%]
    Interestingly I killed 219 barb ships already before reaching this point in the savegame, so the number of 357 seems higher than it actually is.
    I finished the achievement by killing 140 more barb ships in the next 28 turns after this savegame, which is exactly 5 ships per turn sunk on average.
    That means for you you'd have to play roughly 71 turns of this savegame (taking about 2 hours or less) to get the achievement from scratch.
    This is probably done best in two attempts/loadings, as you can not delay combustion for more than about 40 turns.
    Tip: Use the "W" hotkey to cycle to the next unit after attacking, so you don't have to wait for the animation to finish.




    Other savegames, that require all of the DLCs on your side!:
    NOTE! The following DLCs are required:
    -Double Civilization and Scenario Pack: Spain and Inca
    -Civilization and Scenario Pack: Denmark
    -Civilization and Scenario Pack: Polynesia
    -Civilization and ruler: Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar II)
    -Civilization and Scenario Pack: Korea
    -Wonders of the Ancient World
    (Sorry, I did these before I knew about how to remove DLCs temporarily so saves wouldn't require all of the DLCs I own (that would be all of them ;-)))

    Instructions:
    Download the savegames. Copy them into the following folder (scenario savegames are saved in a different folder than normal savegames!):
    C:\Users\YourName\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\Saves\single

    FeiLing_Gandhi_Bollywood.Civ5Save
    End the turn.
    Bollywood (As Gandhi, win a cultural victory with 3 or fewer cities in your empire.) [3.6%]
    Give Peace a Chance (Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Gandhi.) [7.8%]
    Island Hopping (Beat the game on an Archipelago-type Map.) [9.4%]
    Charming. Really. (Beat the game on the Prince difficulty level.) [15.7%]
    Living in Smallville (Beat the game on a Small Map.) [25.9%]
    The Best State of a Republic (Win a Cultural Victory.) [16.7%]


    FeiLing_LargeStandingArmy.Civ5Save
    I am not sure if just playing a turn will trigger the achievement state to update. You may actually have to build another unit for it to be recognized. Confirmation needed from someone who checks his achievements_debug.log (should say ESTEAMSTAT_STANDINGARMY = 316)! IMPORTANT NOTE: You'll not pop an achievement by this save unless you met the other requirements of the achievement in question. The progress however will be saved and the achievement will pop as soon as you meet the other requirements of said achievement (100 GGs and 100 wins) in any other playthrough.
    Panzer "Shafernator" General (Spawn over 100 Great Generals, build an army of over 100 standing units, and beat the game 100 times) [0.2%]


    A special savegame (the initial reason why I made this thread):

    FeiLing_Achievement_Hunting.Civ5Save
    End the turn to make major progress towards all of the achievements listed below.
    Then reload the map and end the turn again. And again. And again. Until you got everything you want/can get:
    Forty-Niner (Build 1000 mines, across any number of playthroughs.) [3.9%]
    Paul Bunyan (Chop down 1000 forest tiles, across any number of playthroughs.) [1.3%]
    God Is Great (Construct 1000 Temples, across any number of playthroughs.) [2.4%]
    Panzer "Shafernator" General (Spawn over 100 Great Generals, build an army of over 100 standing units, and beat the game 100 times) [0.2%]


    Gotten by playing the next turn once:
    A Magnificent Victory (Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Suleiman.) [4.1%]
    Island Hopping (Beat the game on an Archipelago-type Map.) [9.4%]
    Baby Steps (Beat the game on the Settler difficulty level.) [19.2%]
    Do You Want to Super Size That? (Beat the game on a Large Map.) [10.5%]
    The Best State of a Republic (Win a Cultural Victory.) [16.7%] or Go Boldly Where No Man Has Gone Before (Win a Space Victory.) [25.0%]
    City of Science (Develop a city to produce more than 100 science per turn) [56.3%]
    City of Gold (Develop a city to produce more than 100 gold per turn.) [47.1%]
    City of Lights (Develop a city to produce more than 100 culture per turn.) [33.9%]


    Some notes and facts about this one:
    91 mines will be constructed.
    37 forests will be chopped down.
    21 temples will be finished.
    A great general will spawn.
    The game is won.

    All by the next turn.



    Note: The rumor that Opera Houses, Museums and Broadcast Towers would also count for the God is Great Achievement can be confirmed to be not true by me right now. My counter neither increased when I bought them nor when I build them by hard. Monuments probably don't count either.

    Suleiman specific achievement: Barbary Pirate. I've placed a few destroyers next to barbarian camps which occasionally spawn a naval unit which you'll convert 50% of the time automatically... so you can acquire conversions here somewhat quickly. You'll need 10 in total over all your playthroughs.

    Probably a standing army of over 100 units (workers should count for this so... yeah) is on the field (you need this once for the Panzer "Shafernator" General achievement).
    A great general will spawn next turn automatically through combat (you need to spawn 100 over any number of playthroughs (I think through combat only) for the Panzer "Shafernator" General achievement).
    You will win a cultural victory next turn (you need to win 100 times for the Panzer "Shafernator" General achievement).
    However you can also just go to the capital (Istanbul) and add the last SS Booster standing ready there to achieve a science victory instead.
    There are also a few Nuclear Missiles stationed in cities at the border, so you might as well just drop a random one for that achievement too (though you likely already did that before, didn't you?^^)
    I suppose you can also try to get the Land Baron achievement (purchase 1000 tiles) here with all that money. Though I already bought a lot of tiles before to 'get' more hills (for more mines) inside my territory and most of the cities already got all the tiles they can get. You could however annex the 5 puppets I just recently got and buy quite a few tiles in these cities.
    And finally you can use all the workers on the next round to build roads too to get 'the Appian Way' achievement (construct 1000 roads) if you haven't already.
    Note: The roads, mines, forests, culture buildings and the spawning great general will still count for your achievements even after the game has already been won.

    WeaselSlapper_Buy-Tiles-n-B17.Civ5Save
    Buy a B17 Bomber in Philadelphia (and attack Beijing with it on the next turn). You have about 17000 gold and 18 settlers in place. Settle one after another and buy as many tiles as possible in each before founding the next one. Didn't count how many tiles you can purchase here quickly, but should be quite a lot.
    Flying Fortress (Bomb an enemy city with a B-17.) [12.9%]
    Land Baron (Purchase 1000 tiles, across any number of playthroughs.) [2.7%]


    Tithin_Catherine_Horse_Achieve.Civ5Save
    End the turn.
    My Little Pony (As Catherine, research Horseback Riding before any other Civ.) [7.6%]

    Tithin_ConquestOfTheWorld.Civ5Save
    Use the last standing swordsman south of Egypts capital to attack.
    Conquest of the World (As Alexander, defeat every known player by 350 BC.) [7.2%]
    The Man Who Would Be King (Beat the game on any difficulty setting as Alexander.) [9.6%]

    The download link for

    "FeiLing_DLC05_Japan_Emperor.Civ5Save
    Just end the turn.
    Samurai Delicatessen (Win as Japan) [0.1%]
    Dragon Emperor (Win on Emperor) [0.1%]"

    Goes to the save file for the chinese save before it

    ("FeiLing_DLC05_China_Immortal.Civ5Save")
    Capture Busan via an amphibious attack again.

    Other than that, thank you for these. I legitimately got the chinese deity win for the korean scenario and it was a pain in the ass. So some of these will help a great deal.

    Well thanks but this really is cheating and devalues the achievements.

    You don't have to use it if you don't like. Personally I'm going to use it for the worthless grindy achievements, like chop 1000 forests etc. However, if someone wants the achievements and doesn't want to earn them that's up to them, it's not like achievements unlock anything.

    Everybody has their diffrent views.

    If I want an achievement I find a way to get it, if it feels that I earned it and I get the satisfaction I deserve it.

    For example i cheated to get Win as China achievement (not using the above saves, I found a diffrent way) but I didn't feel that I deserved it so I played again and won normally, thus satisyfing the achievement 'again'.

    You also have to consider that you can't earn achievements in MP or with Mods. There are a ton of cases where I legitimately fulfilled the requirements for an achievement but it didn't unlock simply because I was playing a MP game. Besides, it's not really for you to judge how others want to play their game.

    Good point. I prefer to get everything legit but my breaking point was when during the holiday event Binding of Isaac's objective was very random, unreliable and you could only get it during a specific timeframe. And Super Meat Boy's achievement was a gigantic act of douchebaggery.

    Super Meat Boy, even watching Hamster's Let's PLay frustrated me, I would lose my brain over the game.. anyways, we're getting off topic here.

    Thanks tithin; that link is fixed now.

    Finally finished all achievements for the Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario... which was really hard to win on Deity difficulty... took me about 5 attempts (all with Egypt) and lots of saving/reloading (in case of scouts walking into barbarians etc).

    Guess you need a really good resource distribution, luck with ruins (and not losing any scouts) and also a lot of luck with the other AIs, so that each of them get some wonders done instead. Oracle is impossible, which leaves 8 wonders to attempt at. Hanging gardens is impossible, as the AI starts basically with all techs researched already. 7 to go... getting 4 might be possible, but most of the time you get beaten to each and every single one :D You'll need to make 3 though and hope that no one else gets 3 on their own, as any AI will always have more points not related to wonders than you due to various cities and a huge population. Really glad I'm done with that now :w00t:

    Thanks for these. Some of these achievements are truly frustrating and/or kill computers (take years to load). Got the Great Khan achievements? I'm having real trouble with Deity Genghis, which I was planning to cheese....until they fixed the achievements so you had to actually win the scenario the hard way, rather than just by having the most points.

    Wow, interesting idea. Are you working on any more of these saves?

    Also, I think it is possible to unlock achievements in Multiplayer games, but only from Player 1. Playing an ancient leader game on the Mediterrainean, Ramesses II was the first player in the turn cycle, I used a nuke for the first time as Rama and I got the I Haz Nukes? badge then. Consider trying to make the first player achieve the goals.

    If anybody wants "scenario" achievements (by that I don't mean actual scenarios, but just maps that will help unlock certain achievements quickly) then ask me :) I can do them no problem :)

    Finally did and added:
    Ruler of the Seas (As Elizabeth, sink and destroy 357 enemy naval units, across any number of playthroughs.) [0.2%]
    Didn't turn out as hard as I thought. Actually killed about 480 barb ships in that single game in a single playthrough. You can not get that one in a single turn, however the savegame enables you to quickly gain progress by killing ~5 ships per turn.

    Also note: I added text in the first posting for upcoming saves for DLC01, 02, 03 and 04. However I haven't done these yet. If there's no link yet, there's no link yet.
    And a personal announcement: Just finished all of the basic achievements. Only those related to these 4 Scenarios are still missing for me now :)

    Thanks for the saves!

    I did notice that one, the Darius/Prince save for the Wonders of the Ancient World DLC doesn't work. The moment you load the file, it auto-advances to the next round as if the save was done after hitting 'Next Turn' but before it fully processed.

    I'm attaching Darius Prince save for the Ancient Wonders scenario that should work. Just need to press end turn.

    Had golden age pop right as I was beating up Sumer. Ah, I love Darius' UA :love:

    One thing that should be said for anyone achievement hunting. On any of these games make sure you build one of each UU for each Civ for the game you loaded so you can get the Build one of each unit achievement. Also in the load as Germany where you fully explore the tech tree it's a good idea to build a GDR (if you haven't already) and an ICBM (if you haven't already).

    For this be aware that upgrading to a unit does not count towards this achievement, the units have to be built/purchased.

    Good point. Note however that in many of these saves the civs unique unit is already obsolete. So don't assume you "did" all of the UUs if you got the winning achievement for civ X from such a savegame. One should keep track of this in a personal textfile manually or via the achievement_debug.log as described in the OP.

    Weird. No clue what happened there. Maybe it's an autosave from the wrong turn... don't recall that though...

    Thanks! That works. Added it to the list in the OP.
