    Anno Domini: Rise of Cities is an ancient era full conversion mod. Play as one of over 100 civilizations from the "Old World" from the dawn of time to the early Middle Ages.

    The mod includes a unique tech tree, with many new buildings, units and wonders linked to the ancient world. The civilizations come in themed packs, so you can customise who is in the random mix of opponents, and the themes range from "Enemies of Rome" to "Roman Britain".

    Anno Domini incorporates it's own version of various modcomps, including the Community Patch, Piety and Prestige, Rise to Power, Events and Decisions, Mercenaries and Tomatekh's historical religions.

    If you wish to immerse yourself into a Civ5 ancient world battle, this is the mod to download and play!

    Please note that as Anno Domini uses a custom dll, it will not work on a Mac.

    Instructions on how to add Anno Domini to your Mods folder and what to select on the main menu when playing.
    1. Delete all other versions and unsubscribe from Steam - this version is incompatible and I don't have the room on Steam to upload it.
    2. Download and extract the folder to anywhere on your hard drive.
    3. The main Anno Domini Version 27 folder is NOT to be transferred across anywhere; it's the contents you need to transfer.
    4. Transfer the folders inside the main download folder into your Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization V/Mods/ folder.
    5. Load up Civilization V and click on Mods. You'll see a number of options available now. The ones you HAVE to select are the main Anno Domini and Anno Domini art files. These contain the base game and the required art. You must also select at least one civilization pack.
    6. Select as many of the other folders as you like. Each has a number of civilizations in it grouped by type, e.g. Greek civilizations.

    Patch for v27

    Please find the patch attached to this post.
    • The hemiolia now upgrades to the galley.

    Version 27 changelog

    Version 27 contains no new content, however, the issues raised in the thread have been investigated and those I've been able to fix, I have done so. Some issues (for example the mercenaries screen not showing when starting in later eras) I've not been able to change - though it does work if you play the mod from the beginning.

    The civilopedia has also been updated to correct previous errors. There were fewer than I expected thankfully!

    Thank-you also to Thunderfall who has allowed me to upload the mod here. We don't know how long this is for - though it could be a permanent fixture - we're trying new ground here with the new website and having such a large file!

    Looking amazing so far! Nice to see my old Aboriginal icon having a new life with the Hurrians, haha.
    Would I be able to borrow your Mitanni UA for my main game Mitanni civ? It's needed a new one to replace the old Anno Domini v1 one for a while.

    Looking forward to it! This mod was always the best way to play on region maps.

    Looks fantastic, Rob! You've been working on this a while, but it looks totally worth it, and your long efforts show. Glad to see Tiridates and Genseric getting some more use, too :)

    Since you're asking for maps of the Chinese states, does the BNW version expand beyond the "Mediterranean" focus of the GK version?

    Yes. The original pre-G&K version did too. In terms of the Chinese states, there will be the Qin and the Han; I'm more than likely putting in the Yamato (early Japanese culture). Already there are the Pyu city-states; these guys can't build settlers, but get one free every time they enter a new era. For India, we have Kamarupa, the Kushan and Maurya. For the record, civs joining Anno Domini for the first time (in addition to some of those already mentioned) include a handful of new British tribes (I aim to do a British map/scenario at some point), the Hurrians, Numidia, Tartessos, Ugarit and the Vandals.

    Ugarit will be a single-city civ that play a bit like Venice, but are limited to the number of city-states they can get; other civs that can't build settlers include the Huns - though they can annex cities - so their method of expansion is to take over existing cities rather than build them. I'm looking at either Corinth or Palmyra being a single-city state that can't annex or buy in puppet city-states - but do have a good advantage with the culture game.

    Updated OP with link to a test version. This is a fully playable version of the mod, but is still in development, with some graphics and text to add. Please try it out and let me know what you think.

    I've downloaded your mod but haven't tested it yet. I'm looking forward to it.

    Since you have put a lot of focus on City States, might I suggest you look into Gedemon's city state UUs mod. I've incorporated it into my mod, and it is kind of cool to make city states even more unique. I seems to work okay with BNW, at least for me. I had to cut out and alter the code slightly, but I can certainly post a zip file with the important bits if you wish.

    I'll be posting my mod in the near future, and you can see it in action then.

    Thanks for downloading the mod and hope you enjoy playing it.

    I think that it looks great to have unique units for city-states, but I'm not making it a priority as I've already got a huge amount of civilizations each with a unique unit (or two); perhaps I'll look at that though once everything else has been done.

    I've been waiting on a BNW version exclusively so I could start up and run a particular idea for a CivV story. Glad to see its on track. Have my final uni exam tomorrow and then lots of free time for a while so I'll make sure to download and see how it plays.

    The mod looks great, I'm going to play it together with my own changes, to test my happiness/settler system that will be used in my mod too.

    I noticed a text mistake: the description of the Bowmanship tech says it allows a building that gives +15 HP to Archery units. It should be XP instead of HP.

    Thanks!

    Enjoy. Thanks for the heads up on the text blunder!

    Just bear in mind that whilst it's playable and will play out a full game, not all the features have everything modded yet (e.g. the Great Adventures) and there's a freaky situation whereby once you select your first policy branch, the name of the branch appears where you wouldn't expect it (please help me track down how to sort that). It's not game-breaking; a couple of opponents are called "Ceremony" for example (if that's your first policy branch).

    The policy titles are filled in by the leader and civ names automatically. You need to leave some space for that, though:

    Code:
    <Row Tag="TXT_KEY_RITUAL_TITLE">
    	<Text>Ceremony {1_LeaderName} of {2_CivName}</Text>
    </Row>
    
    I'm not really sure where Ceremony is supposed to go, but move it around as you please.

    Sorry, JFD, but I'm not sure we're on the same wavelength here. Whatever is in the first policy branch field suddenly becomes the name for everyone. If it happened in the normal "epic" game, then Washington, Ramesses et al would simply be called "Tradition" including when you contact them and see their diplomacy screen.

    I believe we are. In PolicyBranchTypes you've changed the Tradition (Ceremony, in your mod) branch title to point to "TXT_KEY_RITUAL_TITLE," with the old Commerce (Tradition, in your mod) branch now pointing to "TXT_KEY_TRADITION_TITLE." The latter corresponds to the text string "{@1: gender feminine?Lady; other?Lord;} {1_PlayerName:textkey} of {2_CivName:textkey}", whilst the former corresponds to just "Ceremony," missing the placeholder for the Player and Civ names, which get filled in automatically. You might have just mistaken what the "Title" tag in PolicyBranchTypes is meant for; it is the text corresponding to the player's policy title (e.g. Lord, Consul, etc.), rather than the title of the policy branch itself.

    The reason everyone is being called Ceremony is most likely because everyone is just adopting Ceremony as their main policy branch. In testing it out, I was the only one to receive the Ceremony title on the very first turn, without the AI having been given a chance to choose any policies.

    I bow to your greater knowledge :) and thank-you. I'll need to look into that, then. Are you enjoying the mod so far?

    As you might probably know yourself, as a modder I often don't get a chance to play the game. Nonetheless, from the effort you've put into it, it is definitely exceptional. A lot of variety and flavour have certainly gone into it; I look forward to when I do get a chance to play it.
