    So, several week ago, when civ design challange V and VI was created, I have an idea for yet another CDC, Fictionland. I figured fiction civ have too little love in this community, and there's never enough CDC anyway

    Similar with CDC IV: History, this challange is to create a fictional civilization based on fiction, whether it's from an already existing fiction or straight from your imagination

    The opening challange, shall you take it, is Near Future Earth

    Might as well.

    Waknuk under Joseph Strorm
    UA: Watch Thou for the Mutant
    Gain Faith whenever a new Citizen is born. Cities following your religion may gain a large burst of Faith instead of growing. May spend Faith to damage enemy cities.

    UU: Inspector
    Unlike the Inquisitor, which it replaces, the Inspector generates Food and Faith when stationed on an Animal resource, but must move every turn. Additionally, it has a small chance of pillaging any improvement it moves across, providing no Food but a large burst of Faith.

    UB: Church
    Unlike the Armory, which it replaces, the Church is cheaper and available at Theology. In addition, it provides twice as much Experience to newly produced units if the city it is built in follows only one religion, and may be purchased with Faith.

    :c5moves: The Citadel :c5moves:
    :c5capital: The Citadel
    Immortan Joe


    UA: What a Lovely Day...
    Flatland desert tiles without resources provide +1 :c5food: food for each adjacent freshwater source, but may only contain fort improvements. Units gain +1 :c5moves: movement and +15% :c5strength: strength when near friendly :c5citystate: city-states, and may be sacrificed when below 50 :c5plus: HP to deal damage to all surrounding units.

    UU: War Boy
    Replaces warrior, and never obsoletes. Being purchased, upgrading, and pillaging all require no :c5moves: movement. Gains the Chrome Teeth promotion, allowing it to be sacrificed when at full health and to :c5moves: move 4 tiles and ignore terrain cost when being sacrificed.

    UU: Rig
    Replaces landship. Available earlier, at steam power, and requires no oil. Upgrades from knight and gains the ability to conduct :c5gold: trade missions when adjacent to foreign territory and in desert. However, in addition to producing :c5gold: gold, the trade mission adds a small burst of :c5production: production to all cities in both empires producing a unit.


    This one was chalk full of ideas, could've alternatively had a harem UB replacing bank, an imperator UGP replacing general, a wretched UU replacing worker or settler, an aquifer UB replacing hydro plant... Settled on the war boy and the rig for this design, but depending on feedback could change that up.

    Old Earth Empire
    UA: Small step for man, Huge distance in reality
    Units gain a free scouting promotion per each 2 :c5moves: movement points they have with, and gain an additional free promotion once they reach level 5. Great generals may found cities rather than citadels and may also cross oceans and defend themselves from the start of the game, and are given to the player instead of the starting settler.

    UU: Space Colonialist
    Replaces settler. Though totally useless until astronomy, it grants a lump sum of :c5greatperson: great general points whenever built. Once you research astronomy, it will become strong as the most powerful melee unit available, have its movement doubled, and will gain the siege and March promotions.

    UB: Outpost
    Replaces Barracks. Rather than unlocking the armory, it unlocks a unique version of it, the Field Research Station, which in addition to the usual effects also makes units generate science from kills. Building this unlocks a variant of the military academy, the Commander school, which grants :c5greatperson: Great person points when a unit is built in the city, increasing with each unit you build.

    Not really a good design, probably unbalanced due to the nature of its UU. Supposed to allow you to win the game while not having the best empire or the strongest army, using a "Superweapon" of sorts.

    Oh boy another challenge; here we go!

    The Moon Colonists (Colonist Delta) Don't ask me why they're still on Earth
    In short: A civ focused around exploration; I have no clue how this would work in-game though :crazyeye:

    Why go to space? THE FUTURE IS HERE!
    I went way out of my designing-comfort-zone to create this, but I think it reflects a Trump-America quite well.
    And I sure do hope it's straight from my imagination.

    I like Waknuk. Not as a holiday destination, but as the design posted by Senshi.

    I think everyone's voted. Maybe just set a new challenge.
