I've enjoyed Beyond Earth as a nice variation on the Civ series, but one thing seemed missing: Great People. Since I didn't see any indication that the upcoming expansion would add Great People, I decided to add them myself. Mod can be found in the CFC database here: Beyond Great People Spoilers contain description, copy-pasted from download page. Spoiler : This mod adds Great People to Civilization: Beyond Earth. In keeping with the theme of the game, the Great People added are based on the Affinities instead of the specialists as in the main Civilization series. The great people and their abilities are as follows: Great Harmonist Earned through Harmony Affinity points Can be expended to perform one of the following actions: - Increase Harmony Affinity - Gain a one-time Culture boost (like the Great Artist in Civ V) - Build the Harmonious Preserve tile improvement, which provides culture and health and occasionally spawns domesticated aliens Great Purist Earned through Purity Affinity points Can be expended to perform one of the following actions: - Increase Purity Affinity - Hurry the completion of a building or wonder (like the Great Engineer in Civ V) - Build the New Earth Homestead tile improvement, which provides a large amount of food as well as some production and health Great Supremacist Earned through Supremacy Affinity points Can be expended to perform one of the following actions: - Increase Supremacy Affinity - Gain a one-time Science boost (like the Great Scientist in Civ V) - Build the Techno-Fort tile improvement, which provides energy and science and also doubles as a fort which provides a defensive bonus for the unit on the same tile, bombards adjacent hostile units, and can be used to claim tiles (like the Citadel in Civ V) Affinity points accumulate each turn based on your affinity level. For example, if you have reached Harmony level five, then each turn you will earn 5 Harmony Affinity points. Once you have accumulated a certain number of the points in the appropriate affinity, a Great Person from that affinity will spawn at your capital. I'll eventually add it to the Steam workshop, but I wanted to post it here first to see if I could get some people to play-test it for me to iron out any bugs or balance issues that I may have missed. EDIT: Steam Download Link Also, if any artists or modelers are reading this and would like to lend a hand, I would greatly appreciate the help in adding more polish to this mod. Currently all 3D models are re-used assets from BE, and the 2D icons I made are serviceable but don't blend in that well with the rest of the UI.
