Antagonise's Warring States Since there are surprisingly few Chinese civs, I've decided that I would like to create some based on a very interesting period of history known as the Warring States Period. Prior to the founding of the Chinese Empire in 221BC, at the end of the Zhou Dynasty, China was made up of a number of states, seven of which were major powers in the region. Each was vying for power and influence, and as a result of this these 250 years would be some of the bloodiest in China for years to come. This is my first major modding project (I've only dabbled in XML honestly, but I'm learning), so I'm hoping I can find a lot of assistance and guidance here! It will be a lot of work I am sure, since I want to produce seven civs of pretty good quality. I have plenty of time to commit to the project. If you want to help in anyway just let me know, your help will probably be needed and appreciated. If you want to chip in with feedback or ideas that is of course great as well! Anyway, I'm sure you're more interested in the civs so I will cut to the chase. So far I have come up with the basic designs for two of the seven states, and have ideas for a couple more. It is very hard to find information on some of the less significant states though, especially since I do not speak any Chinese.
