    Destiny Reborn

    A new mod in development ... again. I had started this mod many years and seemingly lifetimes ago. The sands of time have erased all of the old from my computer, so I have restarted it anew. If you wish to read the old discussion thread, you can find it here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/wip-destiny-reborn.521575/

    The intent of this mod is to explore Human Nature, and the theme that history repeats itself. I've worked hard to make gameplay different and unique every time you play, with a number of factors making the strategy needed for each tribe to be a little different.

    Destiny Reborn starts off with your Tribe waking up in the middle of nowhere, with no idea where you are or how you got there. Nobody can remember anything, other than their names and how to speak in their native tongue; and buried deep in their subconscious, some inkling of their cultural heritage. Wild animals are everywhere, and from the evidence, some of them must be quite large. The game starts with each Tribe having gathered on a likely good starting point, and having already decided on whom is the best leader, who are the best fighters, and who are the smartest.

    The tech tree will more or less follow our historical one - with some unique ones thrown in - but will start earlier than the base game, at Hunting and Gathering, and will progress at a slower pace until somewhere in the middle ages. One of the most advanced techs you can get in the late fourth era is Gunpowder.

    The alternative way to win the game is to discover what happened - where did everyone come from, how did they get here, etc. Clues will be uncovered as the game progresses, and once you have discovered them all (late fourth era), you win the game - if you can survive that long.

    In terms of new concepts, Religion is being utilized in a way that has not been done before. Flavors are put to use. Various aspects of each culture will come into play - preferred style of Government, Religion, preferred foods, sigils, attitudes towards alcohol and piracy, etc. While the Tech Tree has a common trunk for all Tribes, each Tribe, culture group, and trait will have a unique branch on that trunk. Fermentation and cooking recipes will have a place in-game. Pollution has been renamed disease, and some improvements have a chance of causing an outbreak. Each Tribe will have a unique Feast that requires the correct ingredients, technologies, and in some cases locations needed.

    All new:
    30 playable Tribes
    5 Governments
    7 Religions
    51 Resources
    Countless Tribe, Trait, Culture Group, Government, Religion, and Resource-specific Units.

    Aspects
    Tribes have the ability to build some human units that have been trained with aspects of their sigil

    Specialties
    In addition to government, trait, sigil, culture group, and religion-based unique gameplay, Tribes will have their own specialty.

    Piracy
    All Seafaring and Sea Mastery Tribes are capable of minor piracy, but a few will specialize in it. Piracy consists of ships that can capture other ships and amphibious land units.

    Starting Techs
    All Tribes start with 4 untradable techs - one each for both traits, one for their Culture Group, and one unique to their tribe. This allows maximum flexibility and uniqueness. Religion is handled via Flavors.

    Improvements and Wonders (256):
    120 Tribe-specific
    16 Trait-specific
    5 Culture Group-specific
    34 Resource-specific
    7 Religion-specific
    10 "Space Race"-specific
    24 Beast-specific
    40 Non-specific

    Units
    In addition to some auto-generated, Trait, Culture-Group, and Tribe-specific units, each tribe will have the following core unit tree with 16 units. The units will have base statistics matching that of the vanilla game, but will then be altered accordingly based on that Tribes Sigil Aspect, and in some cases Specialty:
    Worker
    Settler
    Scout
    Catapult
    Warrior -> Swordman -> Gunman
    Spearman -> Pikeman -> Gunman
    Archer -> Gunman
    Horseman -> Knight -> Ranger
    Canoe -> Boat -> Frigate
    You can get more details on units in post #25

    Secondary Palaces
    The Forbidden Palace and Secret Police HQ have been removed. Instead, each trait will have a unique Small Wonder flagged with Reduces Corruption, and each Culture Group will have a unique Wonder with the same, thus allowing all Civs 2-3 "Forbidden Palaces" while encouraging early expansion (to get the CG one). Each trait-based Small Wonder and Culture Group based Wonder provides Reduced corruption and at least 1 culture, plus the following additional bonuses:
    Militaristic - Festival of Blood - Doubles Sacrifice, Reduces War Weariness in every city
    Industrious - The Great Forge - +1 Production, Produces Worker every 12 turns
    Expansionist - Central Colony - Doubles City Growth Rate, Produces Settle every 18 turns
    Scientific - The Great Teachings - +2 Culture, Doubles Research Output
    Religious - The Temple of Sacrifice - +3 Culture, Doubles Sacrifice
    Commercial - The Great Trade Route - +50% Tax Output, +1 Trade in every tile
    Agricultural - Spring Festival - Removes Pop Pollution, City Growth Causes +2
    Seafaring - The Great Port - Coastal Installation. Increases Shields in Water, +1 Ship Movement
    Great Spirit - The Great Powow - +5 Culture, Doubles Sacrifice, Increases chance of Leader
    Artistic Innovation - University of the Arts - +6 culture, Halves Unit Upgrade Cost
    Sea Mastery - The Grand Boathouse - Coastal installation. +5 Culture, Produces base boat ever 12 turns, +2 ship movement
    Tenacious Grit - Teachings of Survival - +5 Culture, Veteran Ground Units, Increased Army Value
    Trade Dynasty - The Great Bazaar - +5 Culture, +50% Tax Output, Pays for all trade installations

    Trait and Culture Group-Specific items
    In addition to each trait having its own unique Palace Small Wonder, they also each have a unique Citizen and Governor -> Build Often setting. Please note all Tribes will have access to a basic Citizen that works the land, and a Fool who can provide 1 entertainment, plus 1 per trait. Each tribe will also have 4 Build Oftens checked - 2 trait-specific, 1 culture-specific, and 1 unique to that Tribe. They also have a trait-specific unit which can be built if they have access to Wildfolk.
    Trait - Citizen - Build Often - Wildfolk Unit
    Militaristic - Soldier (1 Lux, 1 Cor, 1 Con) - Off. Land Units - Wild Warrior (+1 HP)

    It is worth noting that each trait has a unique bonus resource, so all Tribes get at least two each, on top of the resources available to all Tribes. Sea Mastery Tribes get an additional two, for a total of four each. Springbok Oewer has a unique Bonus Resource, for a total of three.

    Zoos
    Rather than building a traditional (or Great) zoo, each settlement can build a 'pen' for each strategic land animal resource within their radius (excluding Horses and Livestock, which allow the Stables and Farmhouse). There can be multiple (different) pens per settlement, provided there are multiple resources within the radius. Each of these will provide a small boost to culture, happiness, and science. Some will rarely suffer from an escaped animal. This animal will refuse to be caged but is domesticated enough to 'work' for you still. All animal units will have the Hidden Nationality flag enabled. Please note that Baagh Chattaan CAN build these improvements, as they are not using the animals as food. This will apply to:
    Bears
    Big Cats
    Birds
    Game
    Kangaroos
    Komodos
    Panda
    Wolf


    Religion
    Each religion will have 1 unique improvement. Improvements each produce +2 culture per turn, +1 Happy Face, +1 Production, and -1 Pollution. They also have a unique attribute as detailed below. These improvements require no resources to build. To reduce the amount of 'cheating' the human player can do, each one of these replacements will replace the others, so you can only have 1 religious improvement per city (you could still have different ones in different cities, unlike the AI players). Human players can still only build unique religious units for their preferred religion.
    The Mother (worship of the planet and nature) - Gifts for the Mother (req. Mysticism) - Reduces Corruption
    Spirits of the Dead (ancestral worship) - Pillar of Skulls (req. Ceremonial Burial) - Reduces War Weariness
    The Many Gods - Shrine of Many (req. Polytheism) - Stealth Attack Barrier
    The Old God - Church of the Old Ways (req. Monotheism) - Veteran Ground Units
    The Demigod - Church of the Son (req. Monotheism) - Resistant to Propaganda
    Godless Ways - School of Science (req. Education) - +50% Research
    The Dark Lord (worship of 'the devil') - Altar of Sacrifice (req. Monotheism) - Doubles Sacrifice

    Disease
    Since this mod will end in the equivalent of the Middle Ages, the concept of Pollution has changed to disease. This changes very little of the game mechanics, like overpopulation, smokestacks, and volcanic eruptions can produce both pollution and disease and allow other disease-causing factors to come into play. Some improvements, namely feast halls, docks, and other buildings frequented by travelers, can also induce a pandemic. This is done by the 'Can Explode or Meltdown' flag.

    City Walls, Castles, Feast Halls, and Taverns
    With Construction, each Tribe can build a City Wall, provided they have Stone. City Walls provide a small amount (25) of defense and 1 culture. They also allow the unique Castle Improvement.
    Unique Castles require a Sigil resource within their borders (for the 3 with aquatic Sigils, the city must be coastal). Castles provide an additional +2 culture and +50 defense for the hosting city. They also generate a Tribe-specific unit for the city on a regular basis. A city with a Castle can build the unique Small Wonder Feast Hall for that Tribe.
    Unique Feast Halls require access to specific ingredients (resources) required for their unique cuisine. While the stats for each Feast Hall are different, They all provide some Culture and Happiness, as well as allow Spy Missions and Diplomatic Victory, due to hosting feasts for foreign diplomats. For this very same reason, Feast Halls generate a small amount of disease and can become the epicenter of a Pandemic. With the right technology and yet more ingredients (resources), cities with a Feast Hall can build a unique small wonder Tavern.
    Tavern's stats all vary as well, but all will generate some culture, most will generate happiness, some may increase production and disease. Taverns serving non-intoxicating drinks provide the smallest rewards but with no disease. Fermentation and Kava-based Taverns will have moderate rewards with minor disease. Distillation-based Taverns will have the highest rewards with moderate disease.

    Intoxication
    Some Taverns provide alcoholic or kava-based drinks. All Tribes will also have the ability to build Wineries and Breweries with Fermentation. Alcohol generally increases both happiness and disease. Kava/Yaqona is a plant which when ingested has a sedative and mild narcotic effect. It does have some mildly toxic effects on the human body. It is commonly ingested in liquid form in the Pacific Islands.
    Fermented and Kava-based drinks produce 2 culture, 2 happy faces and 1 disease, while distilled drinks provide 3 culture, 3 happy faces and 2 disease,
    In addition, tea and coffee-based drinks produce 2 culture and 2 happiness and 1 production. No additional disease is added, but the +1 production in-game increases disease already, and that is not negated (think blood pressure and hypertension).
    There are a few Taverns which produce drinks without alcohol, Kava, or caffeine, and these provide +1 culture and happy, with no negative side effects at all.
    Improvements available to all Tribes, with the resource within city radius:
    Grains: Grain Field (Farming) -> Brewery (Fermentation)
    Fruit: Orchard (Farming) -> Winery (Fermentation)
    Honeybees: Apiary (Domestication) -> Meadery (Fermentation)
    Coffee: Coffee Plantation (Farming) -> Coffee House (Brewing)

    Spies
    All Tribes will have access to an invisible spy unit that can detect other invisible units.
    All Solovina Dibrova units are invisible, due to their excellent espionage skills, but they cannot detect other invisible units.
    All Colline del Lupo units can detect invisible units, due to their canine companions being able to sniff them out, but are not invisible themselves.
    Both Lory Yanuyanu and Champs de Coq units have hidden Nationality.
    All Piracy ships and animal units have Hidden Nationality as well.

    Easter Eggs
    Members of the Civ3 CivFanatics community that I have found to be extremely helpful may end up finding their way into the Mod, in some form or another. Advisors, cities, units, improvements, whatever.
    For example, Adler des Waldes is a Germany-based Tribe, which includes, among others, the culture of Belgium. Their 51st Settlement is called Supas Kase, which translates from German to Supa's Cheese. Supa is a member here who did an incredible number of Modzilla units for me, who hails from Belgium, and who's subtitle is "Out of Cheese Error".
    There is certainly more than I've listed here...

    I haven't even begun looking for art yet, still working out tech tree, but you were already on my short list of artists to look at. ;)

    Kyriakos,

    So the Culture Groups for this Scenario are based on the real-world continents, so there is one for the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. First era would be akin to the Ancient times, think first structures - simple huts and the like. I am actually fine with first era CGs to be the same or very similar in their city design in this era, with them becoming more individual as it progresses. The fourth era would be the middle of the Middle Ages.

    This is a Fantasy scenario, so it doesn't need to be 100% historically accurate, so long as the cities give off the feel and vibe of the continent and time.

    If you have any in your library you could suggest for this, I would be highly appreciative. :)

    A few unprincipled comments that may be useful.
    In Russian-Pel'meni Kholl can be called "Pelmennaya" (пельменная). The tavern can be called "Kabak" (кабак) or "Traktir" (трактир), with the adjective - "Vodochnyi Kabak" or "Vodochnyi Traktir". There are some historical and semantic differences, the word "Kabak" is still unofficially used to refer to low-level cafes and restaurants. As a wonder, you can use the unrealized Soviet project "Dvorets S"ezdov" (Дворец Съездов - Palace of congresses) (requires iron).


    For the Ukrainians.
    I didn't quite understand why Nightingale. I have rather associations with a Falcon - the Ukrainian coat of arms is usually interpreted as a diving Falcon.

    But this is me finding fault :).
    Instead of "tavern", you can use the words " Shinok" (шинок) or "Korchma" (корчма).

    I didn't see in the list of peoples of the Great Steppe - they are not there?

    So for the first pic, I think that would work for the Second Era. For the first, I want to go further back, more primitive. For CGs there, in order, I see:
    Asian
    American
    African
    European
    Oceanic

    The second pic I see as 4th, maybe 3rd era (maybe both?), with the CGs as:
    African
    Oceanic???
    European
    Asian
    American

    Really my only issue with these sets is the second pic, with no real Oceanic Civ. The rest of these are perfect for it!

    Some oceanic civ shouldn't be too hard to make - though I am not sure when :)

    That is quite useful indeed. I went with literal translations, as I don't know how all of the various languages work within their native grammatical structure. Thanks for the help, I will make the change!

    I will look into that. The current Russian unique Wonder is based on the Catherine Palace, but I am not married to it yet. Again, thanks for helping out! :)

    For the Sigil, I used the national animal (when there was one), and for Ukraine it is the nightingale. It might seem like a weak sigil, but I personally associate it with assassins and espionage, so because they have that as their sigil, they will be the experts at that side of the game. They'll be the best at things like invisible units, stealth attacks, and espionage missions. I'm honestly going to have to make sure it doesn't make them overpowered. Thanks for the verbiage recommendations, too!

    I will update the posts above with full nationalities. While there is one dominant Earth nation in each civ, almost all of them are comprised of multiple Earth nations smushed together into a new, fledgling civ. City names will actually represent that. So, for example, Led Medvedya is most notable Russian, but will incorporate the cultures of Russia, Georgia, Finland, Åland Islands, Norway, Sweden. Lis Solov'ya is primarily Ukranian, but will incorporate the cultures of Romania, Moldova, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Cyprus, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Ukraine.

    Spoiler :
    This all ties into the lore of the game, the ancient history which is to be revealed in the "Space Race" winning condition. Basically, in the very near future, mankind is forced to deal with a number of incredible threats, and all the nations of the world work together to fight common enemies, eventually forming into just 30 nations in the world, before being almost completely wiped out...

    A few more minor corrections.

    > Tavern: Vodochnaya Traktir

    In Slavic languages, the genus of a word is shown through its ending. Since "Traktir "(and "Kabak") is masculine, the adjective in this case requires the ending "-yi" (yesterday I made a little mistake in transliteration): "Vodochnyi Traktir".

    > Castle: Zamok Medvedya

    IMHO, the word "Kreml'" (кремль, Kremlin) is more correct. This is not the proper name of the Moscow Kremlin, this is the General designation of the city citadel from about the XIV century. Accordingly, it will be "Kreml' Medvedya" or better with an adjective: "Medvezhiy Kreml'" (Bear's Kremlin).

    > Castle: Zamok Soloveyka

    Similarly, "Detinets" (детинец) is better.

    > Tavern: Korchma Horilka

    I think it would be more elegant to call it with an adjective: "Horilkovay (or Horilochnaya?) Korchma".

    > Feast Hall: Borshch Khall

    This "Hall" hurts my eyes. Maybe it makes sense to use the second name of the tavern - "Borshchevoy Shinok"?

    Vodochnyi Trakti it is. Thanks again!

    I actually originally had Kremlin, as my own research had said that, but decided against it as most people would assume it WAS based on the famous one in Moscow, and I wanted to avoid that. That having been said, if you have another suggestion better than Zamok that is not Kreml, I will happily take it. I will take your adjective phrasing with Medvezhiy with the final noun, though.

    So Detinets Soloveyka?

    Which is preferred, and what is the difference - Horilkovay vs. Horilochnaya?


    Well, I want there to be a distinction that one is the eating place, the other the added drinking place, so the Tavern alternate I think would not work. But if you have a better suggestion that Khall for Feast Hall, I am open to hearing it :)

    Hm... Then the closest in meaning to a medieval castle will be the already mentioned Detinets. Other options are less successful - Citadel is internationally impersonal, Krepost' (крепость - Fortress) is a purely military object, even if it is part of a city (for example, Peter and Paul fortress in St. Petersburg), the word Zamok (castle) is acceptable, but it is not usually used in relation to Russian fortifications. Thus - Medvezhiy Detinets.

    Russian and Ukrainian are very similar, but there are differences. I rechecked myself - the word Detinets in Ukrainian sounds like "Дитинець", transliteration - "Ditinets". If you use the same scheme - adjective and noun, it will be Soloviniy Ditinets (Солов'їний дитинець - Nightingale's castle).

    As far as I can tell, both variants are grammatically acceptable, but "Horilkovaya"is preferred.

    IRL there is no special designation for the place to eat borscht, but let it be Borschoviy Budinok (борщовий будинок) or Borschtova Hata (борщова хата). Both - borsch house, the first option is better, "hata" is an accentuated peasant, rural house.

    I also wanted to clarify the names of civs. Do I understand correctly that these are "Bear's Ice" and "Nightingale's Forest"? Then I suggest reformatting them (the "adjective-noun" scheme is preferable in Eastern Slavic languages) into Medvezhiy Lyod (Медвежий Лёд) and Soloviniy Lis (Солов'їний Ліс).

    Thanks yet again for all the details!

    Close. Ukraine is correct. For Russia, Bear's Tundra or Tundra of the Bear. Ice works, but Tundra preferred.

    So, then Medvezh'ya Tundra (медвежья тундра).

    Tundra is associated with a polar bear, and Russia - with a brown bear. I can suggest "tayga" (possible options, depending on the transliteration system used: "taiga", "tajga") - (тайга - taiga - northern coniferous forest) as a variant name. Medvezh'ya Taiga. Stereotypes will be observed and logic will not be violated :).

    For Ukraine, you can use not an abstract forest, but, for example, an oak forest: Solovina Dibrova (Солов'їна Діброва).

    I haven't tired you out with my fountain of ideas yet? :)
