[BtS] Canada Mod - Deluxe

Status - December 18, 2007

- Mountie replaces Cavalry (flavour)

CANADA MOD - Deluxe Edition (Warlords)

There have been several requests concerning a Canada update to 2.08. As you know, I've been putting this off as I continue to work on CIV Gold 4.0. Given that Beyond the Sword is due for release in July, I've decided to hold off on updated the mod until after that time.

I apologize to those wanted a 2.08 fix, but I have zero hours in the day right now and I think it makes more sense to do one massive update following the next expansion. If someone wants to learn a bit of XML and take on the 2.08 task, I would definitely support them. But at present, resources are limited and I need to finish Gold.


Note on installation
- find \Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords\Mods
- unzip contents to 'Mods' folder using 7-Zip

In addition to the points below, the Warlords version adds the following:

- Unique Building: Microwave Station (replaces the Broadcast Tower and adds +1 happiness, +50% culture to the city)
- two Canadians to the Great Generals list: Sir Arthur Currie and Romeo Dallaire
- Trudeau is now Charismatic and Organized
- Jean is now Philosophical and Charismatic

Canada Mod - Warlords Edition


CANADA MOD - Deluxe Edition (vanilla)

**Updated August 8, 2006**


Changes in 2.0

- fully integrated Soundpack (thanks to purplexus)
- all Leaderheads now animated
- Three new wonders added - CN Tower, Oil Sands and ??? ;)
- new LH for Trudeau; Trudeau's LH assigned to Pearson

- Michaelle Jean added as 5th leader* (PHILOSOPHICAL and CREATIVE)
- RCMP added as flavour UU to replace Cavalry
- First Contact diplomacy text added

- several small text and buttons fixes

* Yes, I know many people won't like Jean as a leader. I'm the furthest thing possible from a monarchist, but I wanted to try to re-skin a leaderhead that was black and female, and I had a great pic of Rideau Hall to use. Simple as that.

Looks pretty cool from your description. If I was Canadian Id jump all over it. Hopefully the Canadians will be in a huge makeover mod.

Mounties is a fine idea but when I asked for UU ideas in another thread people seemed to move away from that suggestion.

Plus, I think Civ4 (and Civ3) tries to have UUs that correspond to periods of power for the civ. WWI and WWII is where Canada had the most success as an nation from a military perspective.

WWI was especially important because we were drawn into it as a British colony. Our participation there is what gave us some autonomy and earned us some respect internationally. We even got a League of Nations seat because of it. I figured it was most accurate to give Canada a UU from that time period.

Would you consider expanding these to include other civs? There is a Turkish mod and Finnish mod out now with their own flags, and my Canada mod with no flag because I'm graphically lame.
Here ya go ;) (Edit: Don't mind the JPEG compression, it looks crisp in game):



(Please note that getting the maple leaf to fill the entire height of the white central area looks ridiculous, since the resolution is 128x128 despite how vertically stretched it looks in game - the only option is to decrease the size of the red stripes, and I reckon they are the smallest that they can get while looking appropriate)

Laugh all you want, those clubs are the latest in blunt wood technology. Next year we anticipate producing a board with a nail in it.

Awesome! Time to switch from Persia to Canada!

Thank goodness you didn't use Mulroney haha.

A quebec mod? Where you try to seperate? haha just kidding.

Personally, I would've liked to see the Avro Aroww. That was Canadas best Aiir craft, and still holds records today that have not been beat. Can't believe we actually agreed not to continue making those awesome ships.

Yeah, a scenario where Quebec is already seperated and where USA try to invade Quebec. I don't know ! You should really think on another special unit for Canada !

I'd liek the Arrow. It'd kick the crap out of every fighter at the time, but then they'd stop making it.

Or a unit called "red Neck" stronger which can range in strength from a Swordman - sober to Navy SEal - pissed with a shotgun.

That's because the mod uses England's flag as a placeholder. I will incorporate bad_ronald's work tonight and then post a new version.

That's assuming that we can get ahold of some nails, eh.

Plan B involves splitting the end of the club, inserting a suitably shaped stone, and applying duct tape.

What about helicopters? Isn't the Canadian Navy/Air Force obsessed with Helicopters? I think someone needs to do a reskinning of the gunship. And once we can create our own models, a transport copter is needed.

Speaking of helicopters, where is the mod that paints a shark mouth on the gunships?

im going to offend someone, but a warrior unit renamed "seal-clubber" would make me laugh, gets +50% versus navy seals.
