Are there many good scenario mods for Civ 6?

    So I'm getting a new computer soon and I'll finally be able to run Civ 6. However, I'm still undecided about whether or not to buy it. In most of the previous Civ games I've spent most of my time on player created fantasy and ancient world scenarios. From looking at the steam workshop it doesn't look like there are many of those for Civ 6 though. I see that there's a Game of Thrones scenario and the Anno Domini mod, but it doesn't look like there are many, if any, others. Also, I'm unclear on whether or not Anno Domini has scenarios built into it or if you can only play random games with the various civs. Am I just missing the scenarios that are out there? Your thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

    Hi Malkor,

    Currently no scenario custom maps are possible since the .dll files are yet to be released by Firaxis. There are quite a few civilization and map mods though. Anno Domini is pretty fun and it uses the basic random game features with new civilizations and some other surprises. :)

    CIV 6 also comes with quite a few scenarios, some of which are better than the rest.

    Scenarios are possible with the current tools, but harder to set up in the current WB state.

    I've added a frameworkd for procedurally generated or hand-crafted scenario using XML files in YnAMP, but didn't had the time to document it properly before stopping modding, and some features are unfinished.

    I've made two example of simple scenario generation on the Giant Earth Map (or region of it) with such settings:

    One for "Relive World War":

    One included with "Basic Modern Civilization":

    Other mods could use it too, I know there is at least one in development.

    @Gedemon

    Merci beaucoup pour la rectification Gedemon. I stand corrected and it is good to know that scenarios can still be made with the tools we have at our disposal.

    Just to add to my previous post Anno Domini does include custom tech tree, policy cards and more. The map generation is random but the rest is very much tailored to the ancient word. They even plan to make an Ultimate version once the all the features of the New Frontier pass are available.

    I still hope that @Rob (R8XFT) and @SeelingCat will be able to make Anno Domini and YnAMP to work together, because I made that framework with that exact kind of mod in mind.
