    My manager will be disappointed that I lost the clean sheet, though. He will put me back in the Bad Cupboard. I don't like the Bad Cupboard. It is full of sharp things, like glass and nails and teeth, and things in mouths, like glass and nails and teeth. =[

    While I'm recovering from a totally awesome allergy attack here at work, just figured i'd share an idea I had for a potential civ I don't think I'd ever be able to do myself:

    The Dan/Tanka (aka Boat People) of China and Vietnam would be a really interesting civ, and could probably be implemented by cannibalizing the "build cities on water" mod on the steam workshop (can't find it right now, sorry).

    They could start with +1 production on water tiles, +2 after 50% of other civs have discovered Industrialization. They could build cities only on water or adjacent to water/rivers.

    UB could be the Fishing Brigade, replacing the Seaport, also providing +1 food from water tiles.

    No idea about the UU? "Sampan" is the name of their small boats though, but that's not really UU material?

    Just an idea.

    PS if you want to go with accuracy even though it's more than a little risque, Dan cities could produce a unique luxury resource of Dan Women.

    Hm... this makes me wonder what will Leugi do when he finally releases his Uro People civ.

    Once again, thank you for the warm welcome!
    Regarding a background for the civ I fear I'm not knowledgeable enough to actually provide one. I would be very glad if someone could come up with that or suggest one for me to look into :)

    I'd say the civ as a whole would serve as a great revision of the "Manifest Destiny" concept.

    I don't know, but they sound awesome also. Possibly more lake-based though?

    JFD confirmed for being a mod god.
    Also, Hiram's Yakutia civ features the toyon, that can be used to claim... a lot of sea tiles....

    In other news, I found a thing! =]

    ---

    Central Asian Union (Nursultan Nazarbayev)
    Start Bias: Plains
    Capital: Iunno, prolly Astana?
    UA: International Supreme Council
    Generate a +5% :c5production: Military Unit Production bonus for each International Trade Route sent from the :c5capital: Capital, rising to +10% if you are sending them to a Major Civilization that shares your Ideology. Upgrading Land Units grants a flat amount of :c5culture: Culture.
    UU: Alfa (replaces Marine)
    Starts with Shock I and a unique promotion, "Incident Command System", that allows Cities with a Courthouse to add +1 additional :c5happy: Local Happiness for each Ideological Tenet unlocked.
    UB: Justice Court (replaces Temple)
    Available later, at Civil Service, and only generates +1 :c5faith: Faith. However, it generates +2 :c5culture: Culture, rising by +2 :c5culture: Culture and :c5production: Production for each Level 3 Ideological Tenet unlocked. Costs no :c5gold: Maintenance.

    ---

    Since it kinda sorta doesn't exist yet, I had to guess a bit as to what the Civ would represent, and I went for hardline ideological dogmaticism and a slight case of the gun-wielding-crazies. The Marine replacement actually has a use despite not upgrading at all, and you also have a decent Temple replacement that focuses on ideological strength and the military power that backs such things up. According to my admittedly limited research, most of the nations involved in the thing have an Alfa as a top-secret antiterror unit (and if you believe they're just for that in Central Asian dictatorships, I've got a bridge here lookin' for a buyer that might interest you), and the whole Justice Court thing is a bit of a cop-out, it's the kind of thing post-Soviet states, y'know, do. It's kind of the antithesis of my EU Civ, in a way - based on hard power and grim posturing rather than soft power and economic blitzes. Hope that was interesting! =]

    Heh, it'd be funny to see these kinds of blob civs, Central Asian Union, European Union, African Union, North American Union, Pacific Islands Forum
    (you had to be different, didn't you?)

    They could even form a civ pack or something.

    I gather this is the correct place for this sort of request - have there been any modded civs focused on the various British and Irish kingdoms?

    I know that Viregel has made Dal Raita and is working on Mercia, and that DJSHenniger has made Northumbria. I was just wondering if others exist, or even if any of you have concepts you'd be willing to share.

    Yes. Just check the New Civilizations Index thread.
    We've got Anglo-Saxons, Hiram's Celtic split (which includes Picts, Ireland and Cornwall), some more Picts, Isle of Manx, several different Englands under Victoria, Cromwell, Henry VIII...

    Ah apologies, I should have been clearer. I am not only aware of, but am a big fan of many of those mods - especially Hiram's split, and JFDs civs of course. I was hoping there were others similar to Northumbria that I was not aware of.

    Point noted however, and thanks for the answer and advice.

    There's one problem here: JFD has made a Venice revision, so a different one would conflict with his (and JFD is, well, arguably the most famous civ 5 modder).

    I guess, but I'm doing it for fun anyway, and I quite like my designs. Besides, they don't really conflict that much, we've got 2 Mexicos, 3 switzerlands, 2 PLCs, 2 Armenias etc. etc.
