    A NEW CIVILIZATION ARRIVES!

    Led by Hattori Hanzo, the mytical ninjas are on the loose! Persuade others to become your friends when the need comes, make others lose face because of your actions and create terror in their cities with the push of a button.
    Tokugawa's Japan has a focus on the Economic side of Civilization 5 as well as on alliances. You can rely on them to survive if you so desire, knowing very well that if their secrets see the light of the day, the damage will be way worse than just a few soldiers!


    EDIT: I can't change the thread's title? :(

    I can change it for you, do you want it to be Bane's Civilizations or something else?

    So... hold on... how did you do custom missions? I thought they were impossible without breaking compatibility.

    I used a modified UnitPanel.lua, made by whoward69 and updated by Vicevirtuoso.
    I do believe this make the mod incompatible with other mods that also modify the UnitPanel.lua, unless they use this same one. :lol:

    Next up:

    The Barbarian Civ
    UA: (At the Gates) Is capable of training Barbarian units and converting defeated Barbarian (40% chance) units as soon as **********, but loses gold (instead of gaining) if you clear a camp. Unorthodox game start.
    UU: Sacker.
    UI: Barbarian Settlement.

    Any guesses on the highlighted part? ;)



    EDIT: Also updated the Azande.

    Either my enigmas are way too good or it isn't as interesting as I thought it would be. :lol:

    Well, the civ concept itself is really weird I must say. I would have never thought about playing the Barbarians, making them an historical civ may had been more appealing. (Which one, that I don't know).

    I am using Gaiseric, King of the Vandals, as the Leader of the Barbarians for now, although the Unit and UI have nothing to do with them specifically.

    I like strange/unusual ideas, but most of them are just hard or impossible to relate with historical figures. I have two more civs in the to-do list that are history-bound, though (one of them has a special ability that razes your own cities :lol:).

    Now this sounds like fun, I wonder what the benefits from climbing the mountain are, but I guess I won't figure out until installing the mod!

    I wonder how powerful would it be to have observatories everywhere...

    Bane_, for your need to do list on the Tibetan Empire, try putting spelling things right. :p I noticed a few mistakes with Mountain and purposes.

    Haha, thank you. Minor typos, not misspelling. :)
    I found one of each and also the 'Aftr', all in the UA; where else did you found typos?

    What is the convention about punctuation after quotations in Canada, by the way? I believe they must be used either inside or outside by American- and English-rules, yet each has it's own particularity about where, but always present. :confused:

    Lead the quasi-mythical Crusaders in their quest to free Anatolia from the clutches of the Turks and restore the Christian access to our Holy Lands, beating the herectic muslims and saving their souls from the eternal fire!
    With the power of the Roman Court, send the powerful Crusader to take enemy lands; as your Religion grows in power, so does the Crusader! With Faith and the hand of God at his side, no single man can stop a Crusader from achieving his Holy Goal.

    I would have expected King Baldwin the Leper as a leader of the Crusader States... but I guess Pope Urban kinda fits too... interesting civ anyways, finally there's a good reason to have Inquisitors.

    The amount of XP from the Inquisitor isn't that great, but it is free XP and blanketed too. :D

    The Azande are, at the very minimum, disabling the lua on what seems like all of Tomatekh's civs, based on past experiences. Who knows what other problems they might have been causing, but I narrowed it down to them.

    I don't know if the mods and the thread are still maintained by the creator, but while playing with the Tibet mod I noticed that the Tibet UA of considering every city as being next to/close to mountains seems to be malfunctioning, in that it seems to have spread to every civ in the game. Was just playing a game with the mod enabled, but NOT playing Tibet, and I was able to build things like Machu Picchu and Observatories in cities on flat terrain. Looking around with IGE showed that the same goes for AI civs as well.

    Granted, I'm using a whole lot of different mods as well, but this problem wasn't present until I added the Tibet civ. Mod collision doesn't seem to be the issue either since none of the other mods I use touch upon the <Mountain>/<NearbyMountainRequired> building requirements and related mechanics at all besides adding new buildings with said requirements, but I'm not too savvy on how mods work so that could possibly be a factor?.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? If all fails, I guess I should resort to excising the two Tibetan Wonders and use them as a separate mod as they're interesting and work fine. The civ has an interesting premise, I hope someone can address this issue, it would be a shame not to be able to properly play as/against them.
