    The Civ Modders Monthly:
    A Digital Magazine From the Office of the Imperial Ladgazette




    The Civ Modding Monthly is a digital magazine created by modders for those interested in the happenings of the modding world. It is currently trying to find its footing, but I hope it will expand to be as inclusive as possible of the community's regulars. More information can be found on the Civ Commonwealth for Modding Discord Server.

    Issues are available for download here.

    The Civ Modders Monthly: Issue 1
    -----------------------
    I present the First Issue of the Civ Modders Monthly: a digital magazine inquiring, celebrating, and discussing the happenings of the life of the civ modding community. In this first issue, we take a look at some of the community's mod releases, as well as some of our fellow modders' thoughts on their on-going struggles and accomplishments in the modding world. The Imperial Ladgazette hopes you enjoy this first issue, and will join us in anticipation of the next.

    In this third issue, we look at some of this month's civ releases, as well as ponder what it means to choose a good Leader for your modded Civilization. We also take a brief look at some of Civ V modding's earliest days, and continue on with last issue's Reflections for 2018. I hope you enjoy.

    -----------------------
    In this fourth issue, we look at some of the recent Civ releases, as well as consider what it means to pick the Civs and designs we do. We also take a critical lens to modding with a more academic scope; something that will run through the next several issues. Enjoy.

    -----------------------
    In this fifth issue, we consider the civs from the recently released Gathering Storm expansion for Civ VI. We also contemplate one of the oft-overlooked areas of modding - music. And we take a look at one of the modding community's most popular mods: Zimbabwe. Good ladding.

    -----------------------
    In this sixth issue, we bring in new voices to lend their insight into issues of balance when designing a civ mod. Leugi also returns to give his perspective on some of the community's best artwork. And we ask of our modders to give their thoughts and experiences with the notorious steam comments section. Happy April.

    In this seventh issue, we celebrate the beginning of Reiwa with an extended spotlight on the community's Japanese civs. LeeS also tells the tale of a noob and his perilous journey through modding. And Bantha Food discusses the good techniques behind map-making for Civ V. Hope you enjoy.

    Every time I go through one of these, the amount of love that was lavished on it strikes me. Anyway, if you need content, as you kinda mention at the end of VII, I'd be happy to contribute. Where do I send some writing?

    You can find a link to the Discord server in the OP, or right here. There, we can give you a spot for an article and a channel where you can draft, submit, and get any help you need from me or the other editors.
