    THIS WEEKS CIV:


    VENEZUELA



    Civ of the Week is a “project” aiming at bringing you a new, fresh, exotic, and most of all, random, civ every 1-2 weeks, from all corners of the globe, from the Vietnamese to the Mittanni to the Iraqis.
    Each civilization will be available in vanilla and warlords, and will feature full civilopedia text entires, 1-2 leaders, a UU, a UB, audio, and full graphics.

    Because of the quick speed at which the civs are produced, they may not be as high quality as other well-planned custom civs, but hopefully, the civs will be playable at a decently enjoyable level.

    The purpose of Civ of the Week, then, is two-fold:

    1. To bring you random civs that would probably not have been chosen as civilizations first of all, and to provide a new, more exotic, more interesting experience in choosing civilizations.

    2. To promote more knowledge of lesser-known peoples, cultures, and histories.


    Otherwise, then, enjoy!





    Statistics and Information for:



    VENEZUELA

    Hello all!

    I have taken a long break from my "Civ of the Week" series, due to the fact I am now spearheading a bigger mod enterprise, the unofficial expansion, World of Legends.

    However, I have decided to make a civ for this week - Venezuela, which will also be featured in World of Legends.

    Yes, this is a really small "demo" of World of Legends.

    Nevertheless, here are the statistics:


    Leader: Simon Bolivar - Philosophical, Protective (Favorite Civic: Nationhood)
    UU: Llanero (Replaces Cavalry) - 25% withdrawal chance, +1 First Strike
    UB: Resort Hotel (Replaces Broadcast Tower) - +15% gold
    Started Techs: Mining, Mysticism


    Because this is considered a demo and not the final product (the complete World of Legends "Unofficial Expansion"), there is almost certainly to be a number of bugs, issues, or problems. If there are, feel free to report them.


    To install, simply put the folder in the zip in your mod folder.

    Thanks to:

    - Bakuel for the Mesoamerican Cavalry
    - Charcoal and White, Rabbit for their tutorials

    A note to all:
    I will not be working on Civ of the Week for a while. I have a new modding task - Head Manager of the World of Legends team! (Check link on signature below for more details)

    well, i prefer to do civilizations that people haven't made up yet. you can find a Brazil civ here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=138755

    i'm also sure that CivArmy made some more Brazilian tribal civs. Brazil also features on CivGold, one of the most prestegious massive civ add-on mods (about fifty+ civs in the latest version): http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=165969

    im sure you meant the hyksos leader looks sick, not the civilization. ;) the Hyksos and the Egyptians for that matter weren't that sick... actually, as i said somewhere here, i got the inspiration for the hyksos leader (art-wise) from CivGold - their leader Nebuchadnezzar looks uncannily similar, and just as... well, weird. but it does look "egyptian-ish", believe me.


    hmm... interesting... good idea. i'll look into it. im starting to run out of ideas for civs... (but i got almost a hundred alreadly anyways)... at this rate, Danzig will be ready in two to two and a half years! :D
