    Here's my newest future civ, the Dan Edalian Company. Basically, it is a civ that represents a future America taken over by a corporation. This civ is intended to be used with mods such as Next War, ViSa, Amra, RoM (the intended mod; I will issue a version for it soon). Be sure to check out the Reman civ in my sig, since the stories of the two are tied together.

    Name: Dan Edalian Empire

    Spoiler :


    Leader: Mr. Big (Financial, Industrious)

    Spoiler :


    UU: Protection Agent (SAM Infantry)

    Spoiler :


    UB: Local Branch (Courthouse)

    Spoiler :



    Credits: The CIV Gold team for the Williams leaderhead. hrochland for the UB (Versaille pyramid). Rabbit, White for futuristic SAM infantry.

    Enjoy :)

    At the moment, it's not designed to go into Next War. You can try it if you want, but I haven't, so I can't really help you merge it.

    Otherwise, create a new folder in the MODS directory (I doubt it make a difference whether it's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods or \My Games\Beyond the Sword\MODS directories), name it what you want (let's call it DanEdalianCiv), then open it up. Next, make another directory in that folder and name it Assets. Open up your new Assets and create the Modules folder. Open up Modules and create Custom Civilizations folder. Paste the DanEdalian module in the zip file into Custom Civilizations.

    Sorry if that's a mouthful. :)

    The module is the folder named DanEdalian. Should be the first one you see.

    Ok for some odd reason, the Dan Edalian civ doesnt show up. I am using the latest version of civ 4 bts. I followed your steps to creating the folder for this civ, and yet, when I start it, it does show DanEdalianCiv at the top right corner of the main menu, but no Dan Edalian Civ in the Civilopedia or nothing....whats going on? I really want to use your civ, i've been looking for a corp. ruled civ for the longest time.

    Aha! Now I know why. You need a config file that turns on modular loading. I'll provide one for you. Take that .ini file in the .zip archive and drop it into the DanEdalianCiv folder. That should turn on modular loading.

    Hey Circuit, I was wondering if you could perhaps make me a custom civilization? I know its a big thing to ask, but I see you've mastered pretty much everything it takes to make your own custom civilization. I know you used the graphics from here and there, like the Williams LH from Civ Gold etc. so you also know how to use other creations and apply them to yours. I've been trying to do the same as you but I honestly cant...I successfully made the button and flag work just fine, but I cant crete my own. I used a copy of your Dan Edalian civ(which I love by the way) So could you help me out abit? If you do decide to help create my own Corp civ, i'll give ya somethings i want in this civ, cool? Thanks in advance, whether or not you help me, thanks for your time man! :D

    So what are you thinking of? A corp civ. So, its name? Units? I'll see if I can fit it in. I just made a scenario (including Dan Edalian Company) that I am getting started right now. I currently don't have many plans for new civs.
