    Civics and Reforms (C&R) is a mod designed to bring back the old experience of the flexible Civics system in the previous predecessor of Civilization V at managing a nation's domestic and foreign affairs. This system allows you to customize and specialize your domestic and foreign affairs with a diverse choice of options categorized into Government, Legal, Labor, Economy, and Religion. With these categories, you can choose a combination of civics to fuel up your empire toward a new era.

    This mod requires the Community Patch, although Vox Populi is completely recommended.

    It's not that hard. People see you have chosen the same civics, they like you. People see you have a civic different to theirs. They dislike you.

    So how will you rule your empire?

    Sounds promising. However, at first glance the upkeep seems fairly high. This will obviously need play testing/tuning. But for example, The economic civic free market; one trade route will yield 5-30 gpt depending on the stage of the game. Your almost guaranteed to have more population than that trade route will bring in, creating a net loss. I'd much rather have a system where you chose the most good option instead of the least bad.

    Can I propose to add some new civics, or rather one new?

    One thing I missed in CIV4, is State Atheism from Religion Civics. Could work well with Police State and State Property by creating a nice communist country.

    Other than that, sounds good but also too close to CIV4, could use a little spin with for example some new civics, like Federation with Government.

    Also, nice change for slavery. I always thought it should be bonus and no whipping population.

    Adding one civic means adding 4 other civics to the rest of course. What do you have in mind? Make sure the bonuses are AI-friendly.

    Sounds cool, civics are the only thing I miss from civ4.

    Here´s few more ideas.

    Government:
    -something to do with city-state relations?

    Legal:
    -no idea

    Labor:
    -something culture and golden age related perhaps?

    Economy:
    -tourism industry (modern age, +1 :tourism: from monuments, +2 :tourism: from coastal cities and landmarks, +5% :c5gold: from hotels or something similar)

    Religion:
    -scholasticism (medieval age, +2 :c5science: from temples and/or monasteries, +2 :c5faith: from universities or smth like that, maybe remove the science bonus from free religion and have it focus on happiness instead)

    It is kinda hard to say, my main thing was imagination running loose when CIV4 gameplay goes beyond Information Era into Orbital/Genetic/etc era.
    Spoiler :
    So it needed new civics like state atheism was one, other was futuristic AI goverment, Robotic Servants Labour, Cyberspace Legalism and Micronation Economy.


    but to make additional without going into future, hard.

    StugLife had a nice idea with Tourism industry (could benefit small nations that can't dream about science or conquer victory), Federation goverment could be all about cities other than capital giving them bonus to science and money. State Atheism could erode foreign and national religion in exchange for religious buildings giving hapinnes and gold (serve the party/system). Don't know about others, they maybe too close to social policies and tenets and those also choose all good stuff already.

    Looks promising! Kinda like social policies, but I guess you are supposed to be able to change those civics, right? Also, a little note about Nationhood: the part where you get more hate from other AI civs is limited to interaction with the AI only (no interaction between humans in multiplayer). I'd suggest something like -X% gold from TR with other civs instead, if a negative attitude towards you for adopting the civic is what you want to portray.

    Theoretically, it would work, but then Rise to Power uses too much dummy policies.

    It'd work, but given that Sovereignty and CRR focus on the same concepts, it wouldn't really be recommended.

    Rise to Power is the one with the million dummy policies. Cities in Development, Exploration Continued Expanded, and Cultural Diversity should be perfectly compatible. If you could clarify that in your OP, that'd be great.

    This will be looking for a beta release tomorrow as I begin to finalize the last civic branch: Military.

    If anyone has any balance concerns or anything. Feel free to post.

    Since the 6 default civics are all low upkeep, does that mean that a nation starts with 120% increase in building maintenance compared to base CBP?

    Can't wait to try!

    One thing: the default civics should either have no maintenance, or stronger bonuses. Past the grace period you just underlined, no one will choose +1G in exchange for 20% maintenance.

    Staring at the computer, the screen displays out, "You have researched Future Tech 173." Hovering your mouse over the maintenance fee, you see your building maintenance, "4,483." A very large number indeed you recall. Unit maintenance has become very rampant. Due to the "global peace" that the world talks about nowadays, maintaining a single regiment will result in fines and sanctions. If only there was a way I could unite the Germanic people under one flag.

    Realizing that the country was under a government of universal suffrage, a law of free speech, a labor system made up of all entirely emancipated persons, an economy based on preserving the environments, and the aspect of free religion ran a trouble. You quickly enacted a few civic reforms. You abolished the universal suffrage, abolishing the incompetent politicians that tries to win the heart of the voters and you install an efficient benevolent despotic ruler. Abolishing this so-called free speech that obstructs your unification of the Germanic people, you instill the people of the olden days of nationalism. You also abolished the emancipation system, every labor is relied on tribalism or today's eras called a merit-based system or meritocracy. Those that cannot efficiently serve the nation cannot efficiently be an equal citizen to another. You abolish the environmentalism and favor the State Property realizing that you will need maximum production in every city that you have unified the Germanic people for all the infrastructure will be destroyed. And this so-called free religion to which many people you have drafted for has been consciously objecting for their sake of religion. You abolish the system and discriminate heavily on the consciously objectors, heading toward paganism. A belief that the Germanic people will be united under one flag.

    After the reforms, you began to look into your building maintenance fee: "1237."

    tl;dr low upkeep triumphs in the future as upkeep gets higher and higher.
