    But one does not simply walk into Mordor.

    No, you just drive a MK XXXIII Bolo over the black gate and start destroying their stuff.

    To add on to this, there should also be other CFC modders on there, like edead for wherever he is, Rhye for wherever he is, Kael (FfH) for wherever he is, etc.

    This mod really needs an alien invasion scenario that can happen at point in the game, where giant creepy robots with heat rays and green bombs start destroying all of human civilization and its up to you to stop them with stone spears/chariots/muskets/tanks/whatever you have.

    Pigasus should become ruler of the USA in the late 1960's.

    Each civ has a Unique Weakness to balance its Unique Power. Simples. :mischief:

    Americans - Homeland Security
    If an enemy Spy carries out an espionage action, -10 unhappiness in that city for 3 turns.

    Arabs - Café Culture
    Coffee reduces the effectiveness of Barracks, Security Bureau and Intelligence Agency by 50%.

    Aztecs - Omen of Quetzalcoatl
    When conquerers appear, random Aztec units defect (as in a War of Liberation).

    Babylonians - Epic of Gilgamesh
    Improvements in flood plains randomly destroyed.

    Byzantines - Iconoclasm
    Classical, Christian, and Zoroastrian Wonders cause -1 unhappiness.

    Chinese - The Chinese Character
    The civ cannot research Alphabet themselves; they have to get it from trade.

    Congo - Central African Empire
    You may get this event if your Government is Republic. For a few turns, the civic changes to Dynasticism and your treasury is emptied. If you have developed Refridgeration, then the population of your capital city is reduced by one point each turn.

    Dutch - Hilversum Tolerance
    Broadcast Towers also increase the culture of random /other/ civs in the city.

    Egyptians - Al-Jazeera
    Your stability is reduced if you research Satellites or anyone else completes The Internet.

    English - Cuppa
    After Astronomy, -3 happiness in any English city that does not have access to Tea.

    Ethiopians - Beta Israel
    When you build your first Airport, that city loses a population point to Jerusalem.

    French - Pétain Effect
    If they lose five units in a single turn, they capitulate to their most powerful opponent.

    Germans/Austrians - Hap-py Families
    For every ten turns the civ is in Dynasticism, -1 health and -2 stability.

    Germans/Prussians - Banking Crisis
    If the Single Currency resolution is passed by the UN, then the German treasury empties and -2 unhappiness in all cities.

    Greeks - Banking Crisis
    If the Single Currency resolution is passed by the UN, then the Greek treasury empties and Banks have no effect.

    Incas

    Indians - Bollywood
    If other civs trade Hit Movies or Hit Singles to you, then they have no effect.

    Indonesians - Pancasila
    Chinese culture in your cities causes extra unhappiness.

    Iranians - Press TV
    The Internet has no effect.

    Italians - Berlusconi Bungs
    Broadcast Tower increases corruption in the city by 50%.

    Japanese - Otaku
    When Computer Industry are present in a Japanese city, productivity declines 10% but +2 happiness. +1 more happiness if the Seafood Industry is also present.

    Khmer

    Koreans - Juche
    If the civ is Totalitarian+Supreme Council, then it has -5 relations towards all other civs.

    Mandi - Gold Lust
    If a Mandi unit moves onto a tile with Gold, then it cannot move again.

    Maya - Mayan Calendar.
    If you play as the Maya, the game ends in 2012.

    Mongol - Lamb Kebabs
    Pig and Cow cause unhappiness, offset by extra happiness from Sheep.

    Mughals - Taj Mahal
    If the Taj Mahal is built, all the other cities have -1 unhappiness.

    Persians - Immortals Reincarnate
    When enter the game, your Unique Units (Immortals) are mounted units with horses. After a random period of time, they reincarnate as meleé units.

    Phoenicians - Carthago Delenda Est
    If you lose a city in your Core Area, it is automatically razed.

    Poles - World History Forum
    The history display at the end of the game may exaggerate Polish influence on the map.

    Portuguese - Angolan Currency Scam
    If Portugal has any cities in Africa, inflation increases by 10%.

    Romans - Lead Pipes
    Aqueducts reduce science output by 20%.

    Russians - Conscript Hazing
    Newly conscripted units immediately take 20% damage.

    Spanish - Mañana
    Spanish units occasionally have their movement points set to zero at the start of a turn, rendering them inactive.

    Tamils

    Thai - Preah Vihear Temple
    Hindu temples in Khmer cities cause unhappiness in Thailand.

    Tibetans - Monkery
    Buddhist Missionaries cause -1 unhappiness when present in a city.

    Turks - Enosis
    Greek culture in Turkish cities causes triple unhappiness.

    Vikings - Snus
    Tobacco causes -2 health in Viking cities.

    Can anyone help with the missing civs? The list of omissions is sadly predictable; I wish I knew more about those peoples. :(

    [This is better than the original, because it reflects a Thai weakness rather than an American one.]

    Khmer - if you switch to totalitarianism/supreme council, all specialists/great persons become slaves and the specialist slots vanish

    This was my initial thought for the Khmer as well, but I was aiming for things that people from those cultures today would also find funny - laughing with, not at, people. I can't think of a way to make the killing fields funny that a Cambodian would also enjoy.

    Normally, I dislike these sorts of lists for that reason exactly.
    But I think you did it very well and tastefully; I did indeed laugh at quite a few of these.
    Press TV should be for Iran though, not Persia, as the rebirth is a bit different (different UU, UP, etc.).

    These were my favorite.

    Anyways, I can offer one up for Congo.

    Congo - Tintin in the Congo
    -5 Relations towards the French and the Dutch (for lack of a Belgium)
    50 turns after first contact.

    EDIT: For Japan, Otaku probably shouldn't add Happiness since it contributes to population gain ;p ; and many Otaku are still quite productive.

    You are right ;) good list. Another suggestion (hopefully more tasteful):

    Incas - Mayincatec - other civilizations constantly confuse you, refering to you as either Aztec or Maya, and you may get diplomatic penalties for civics Aztecs or Maya adopt.

    (cambodia) Khmer - Holyday in Cambodia - cities with airports may attract sleazy tourists from other civs with open borders. They provide extra gold, but cause unhappyness and sickness.

    America if running Totalitarianism, but not state proprety: GOPtatorship. makes mountains of money. Unhealthiness is massive and hospitals provide gold, not health.

    America if running state property, but not Totalitarianism: Democractatorship. healthiness is massively increased, but budget issues will occur. also/

    America under both: no need to change.
