    It is finally time.

    Download Dawn of Civilization 1.16


    Here's a short list of the major changes in this version:
    • Limited resource effects: each instance of a happiness or health resource now only supplies a limited number of cities, prioritising cities by culture.
    • Turkic civilisation: starting in Central Asia in 550 AD with the ability to take control of barbarian hordes and pillage other civilisations without declaring war, and goals around raiding their neighbours, establishing the Silk Route and accumulating culture in different capitals.
    • Wonder expansion: add many additional wonders across the world and history, especially focusing on the Industrial, Global and Digital eras to provide them with more wonder variety.
    • Space Victory overhaul: the space race now has a series of prerequisite projects that each give a benefit to the first civilisation to complete it, and instead of building a colony ship to Alpha Centauri it is about constructing a colony on Mars. Investment into space production has synergy with other game aspects to make it worthwhile even when not going for the victory.
    • Lategame expansion: besides the above two points, additional buildings and projects as well as satellite units were added to the late game, to offer more content at the end of the game.
    • Additional unique units: many civilisations have received a second unique unit, reflecting their importance over long periods of history.
    • More intricate city conquest rules: additional options to sack or spare cities to make trade offs between pillaged gold and damage to the conquered city, damage to buildings and population is less randomised and applied gradually while the city is in unrest, including when razing cities.
    • Language support and functionality: the mod can now be played with incomplete translation in all EFIGS languages. It is now largely translated into French.
    You can read the complete list of changes here.

    It has been quite a long development cycle once again despite my best efforts to reach shorter release cycles, but we also have quite the impressive list of new content here, so overall I am really happy with it.

    As always, this has been a community effort. I just don't mean the invaluable contributions various people here have made directly to the code base, but also everyone who has left constant feedback (including those pesky bug reports) in this forum, and in general has been active around here to keep me motivated to keep going.

    I hope you all enjoy playing it! As is tradition, I will soon follow up with another thread outlining my plans for the future, that is DoC 1.17.

    If you want to show your appreciation monetarily, here's a link to my Kofi account:

    Let me first thank you for the good work you all have made to maintaining and develop this modmod for DoC.
    I have spent alot of time playing it as I enjoy games that requires strategy development.
    I have just started playing with the new official v1.16 release and I have decidied to take a more active role.
    This means you will see alot of bug reports coming from me in the near future.

    It's not installing to my steam/beyondthesword/mods folder and there's nowhere in the installer that indicates where it IS installing to. Any suggestions? (also isn't in the "MyGames" directory

    EDIT: apparently it created a folder for itself under my C drive called "Mods"... found it!

    Okay, in that case you have to move it to the right location. Sorry, the installer seems to not have been able to find your BtS directory.

    Is this the right thread to report that I am getting a "not a valid Win32 application" error message when I try running the installers for 1.16, both the Core and the full version? What am I doing wrong?

    My first thought is an invalid download, have you tried downloading multiple times?

    That was my first thought too, and I downloaded a second time and tried installing before posting here. I've just tried again, and third time was still no charm. The 1.15 installer works, though.

    Could it be an OS issue? (I'm really ignorant of these things.) I still run CivIV and its mods and modmods on an XP installation, one I maintain solely for this game. (I'm a Mac guy, so I've little incentive to advance along the Windows tech tree.)

    Oh, yes. Unfortunately the mod is only available in Windows. Technical reasons prevent compatibility with other operating systems. I've heard some people had success getting it to run in Wine but I have little experience to help you with that. Sorry.

    I am trying to run the installers on a Windows XP system. The 1.16 installers return the "not a valid Win32 application" message. The 1.15 installer works fine.

    I shouldn't have mentioned the Mac. But I've found I have to explain to people anyway why I'm still using an XP installation, so I was trying to pre-empt the usual "Why are you still on XP?!?!?!?!?!?!" question.

    That's strange too. I have no idea why installers from different versions would behave differently. Have you tried executing the installer as administrator? Alternately, you can also install the mod and its modules without the installer through the RAR downloads.

    The next time I am in the XP side of my computer I will look at the admin suggestion. For now, can you tell me where the RAR downloads are? At the sourceforge page, there are RARs for 1.10, 1.12 and 1.14. But 1.15 only has an .exe, and for 1.16 I only find Core and Full installers.

    Oh you're right. Apparently I decided not to do those RAR uploads anymore. But there are still zip downloads directly on github. Here is the 1.16 download, and here you can find the module downloads if you're interested.

    The RAR did it, and I've got it installed and playing now. Thanks so much for the help!
