    Spice itself is wortless on dune. Real wealth on dune would be water, because water means life on dune.

    hmm. perhaps the fremen need water, but the outworlders need spice to "buy" new off world troops

    Man this brings back some of the great absurdities if the Dune 2 where the most effective way to kill a infantry unit with a tank, was to run over them and crash it. :eek: At the I had no problem with this strategy, but if you think about it realsiticly, is is absurt that this would be valid stategy. :lol:

    I actually think we should include the Prequels and some of the Brian Herbert stuff. It would increase the gameplay.

    One problem for this would be that there would be a low amount of civs, leaders, and units.

    please don't forget the 'thopter.

    i think this mod could be made with a bunch of civ's spread out over several different maps, in that case. of course the primary map would be arrakis :)

    That would make sense but we still have the problem of few mentions of what could be civs, leaders, units, and buildings. There are some of these but not enough really to make a mod.

    i think the problem is not solely the lack of artwork, but the lack of time and programmers. i can't work on this mod (anymore than i have already done) because im backlogged on Second Rev 3.0 :(

    I would like to make a very simple dune mod where the basic change would be that instead of the global warming change usual tiles into desert, it would do the oposite thing. So, on the begining, the planet is all desert. Since the water start to be 'fixed' on the planet, it start to change slowly into a normal planet, into Rakis, at the time of Leto, the Tirant. The game can follow the usual rules, with the same units, something very simple. The main idea is to change the whole planet during the game. Some building that can 'fix the water' and spread it to make it possible to build farm improvements shoud be done too. But it is just this as a start! I wish I could make this little mod all by my own, but English is not my natural language and I'm getting trouble with the tutorials and all those codes. Can someone help me with some hints, how to start and everything? Thanks.

    Greetings all, I read through alot of this thread and I wrote up a basic design outline. I've read the books over and over again and I think i got some fresh ideas and I'm going to attempt it, looking for volunteers in this thread.

    In case you want to make flags for the different factions, here is a good resource.

    http://flagspot.net/flags/fic_dune.html

    This gives some different, and documented, info that the Wikipedia entry.

    So, how's this mod coming along? I probably should read all the information before asking but it's 02:51 here and I'm a bit too tired to do that. :=) Do you guys know of any complete Dune mods btw? For any of the Civilization games? Or other strategy games.. Any help would be much appreciated! :p

    yeah this mod is deader than a doornail. no one wanted to take lead of this mod and take initiative (unfortunately that includes me :( )

    You may want to get in touch with dtumacder and help him with Dune: The Spice Must Flow. If there is people interested he may want to retake the project...
