Fairy Tale This mod places a number of Civilizations in a fairy tale world; a world with evil sorcerors, mighty trolls, noble and manly knights, nimble woodelves and hot babes in distress. Original? Bah! This ain't original in any way. No-no. Instead Fairy Tale shamelessly makes use of all common and well-known fantasy and fairy tale clichés to create a pot of humour, excitement and of course pure good old Civilization nationbuilding. This mod does not claim to be original or impressive, nor does it claim to be Fall from Heaven. It does claim to be fun and exciting. >>>DOWNLOAD<<< SOME OF THE FAIRY TALE FEATURES Diverse and unique civilizations; all with their own theme and style. All from Medieval European kingdoms and Fantasy-like dark nations to Barbarian skeleton civs and hot-babe amazon nations. All have their own units, leaders and culture. Make use of everything from dragons, witches and magicians to regular medieval infantry and noble knights in the monumental Fairy Tale wars. Forge your Royal Guard to become the most renowned crack unit in the Known World. There are masses of unique units. All civs have specific heroes that can travel the world and find adventure. Just like real Fantasy and Fairy Tale heroes. Build your Royal Family and found a lasting dynasty! The mod is playable on a great variety of maps; including hand-made scenario maps, as well as pre-made maps of Tamriel from the Elder Scrolls Series and Middle Earth from Tolkien's Trilogy! Included are also several map scripts that generate random maps. The huge "World of Fary Tale" map is the standard which has all the civs present! Detailed Lore, storyline, background and world setting against which the whole game is played. This is an own universe. Unique fairytale/fantasy music composed by Zero-Project. INSTALLATION AND PLAYING Fairy Tale is a mod for Civilization IV; Beyond the Sword 3.19. To install, simply put the Fairy Tale folder in your Beyond the Sword Mod folder. The correct path for the installed folder should be C:/ProgramFiles/2KGames/FiraxisGames/CivilizationIV/BeyondTheSword/Mods. To play the mod, start up Civilization as usual, and from the main menu choose "Advanced". Then choose "Load a Mod" and select "Fairy Tale" from the menu. The game then restarts, and when it has done so, select "Single Player Game". There are then three options on how to play the game. 1. The Scenario Version. Choose "Play a Scenario" in the menu. Pick any of the scenarios listed. All the pre-made scenarios for Fairy Tale describe a certain historical period in the Fairy Tale Lore or just highlight one of the mod's civilizations. The scenario "The World of Fairy Tale" puts all civs on a huge map of The Known World, which is the Fairy Tale land. You play as any of the nations and begin at the first settlement! The scenario "The Collective War" supplies a smaller map and you play as one of the contenders in the Great War between the Collective and the Free World. That map is perhaps best to start with. 2. Further Scenario Options. There are two other maps available in the Scenario Menu as well; Tolkien's Middle Earth and Tamriel from the Elder Scrolls. I added those for the fun of it and edited the starting positions on the maps to, in a way, align my civilizations to those two excellent fantasy worlds. The result wasn't quite proper in alignment between my world and the two others, but should indeed pose two interesting ways of play. 3. The Campaign Version begins a Fantasy-type game on a random map and takes you from the beginning of time, forward to the time when The Dowager Queen invaded the Free Lands. The map Script "Planet Generator 0.68" (found in the left-hand menu) is highly recommended for the campaign games, but other map scripts have been included as well. For an example, "Creation", which was used in FfH2, and creates a true Fantasy World. You can choose to play any one of the nations in Fairy Tale. Note that Planet Generator comes with a lot of choices for world creation!
