    The first edition of my Fire Emblem civpack for Vox Populi, made in collaboration with the Fire Emblem Civilization Modders group (Discord link), is complete!
    I've posted an earlier draft in the civilization showcase thread, but I thought I'd start a new thread for ease of sharing and publicity. So if anyone wants more fantasy in their Vox Populi, this may be your thing!

    Huh, I didn't think there would be interest. I haven't planned for 4UC compatibility, since that's a lot of extra work. My time and energy for modding is limited, and I'd prefer to focus on getting out more civs to add to the collection. But if people would rather I put that on hold and do 4UC for the existing civs, that is an option I can consider.

    Do you plan to make a poll for that?
    As for me, I play with 4UC mod and civs that support that. I don't plan to play without 4UC, so that exclude many modded civs. There is 6 civs that works with 4UC and many more that don't, so I guess there is more demand to make more civs compatibile with 4UC.
    I know it requires work to design and implement more unique components, but how about just taking components from other civs at start? JFD Japan, America and England does that. Then you could create completely new components if you fell like.
    What do you think? :)

    I think a possible solution is to have the 3/4UC project add a generic bonus for any custom civs that don't have explicit support. I'm no longer working on the project, but I can bring it up with the peeps there and see if we can find a good solution.

    Oh wow, you found my LP? Pretty impressive; I don't recall ever advertising it! Then again, there are very few Vox Populi LPs out there, and as far as I'm aware, mine is the only one with modded civs, so I don't have much competition in that regard. Glad you like it!

    A link, for anyone else interested.

    The civ I'm playing is one that I haven't released yet. Will be in the next civpack, though I could also release it independently if there's sufficient interest.

    Has anyone played with my civs? Any comments/suggestions/feedback?

    Gentle Flame of a Noble Heart sounds undertuned unless the culture bomb is very high. Suggestions:

    1. a buff to academies;
    2. Great Scientist points (on science specialists, or on science buildings/national wonders or academies or whatever);
    3. additional scientist slots;
    4. faster GS generation (though Babylon already has this; could be tied to the UB, but that's putting all of one's eggs in the same basket).

    I think the Dark Magic promotion is outrageous; should be cut in half or so.


    The Ostian Keep is a tad strong (euphemism)? It's effectively a second wall and second barracks. Suggestions:

    1. make the additional city defense & hp conditional on having a garrison (it's a keep after all!);
    2. lower the exp bonus, perhaps even eliminate it (as it already grants exp thank to the UA, I assume?);
    3. increase the production cost;
    3. remove the additional production.

    Thanks for the feedback! I always appreciate any balance feedback.
    I agree with all your points above. I will add faster GS generation to Lilina's UA, and remove the XP bonus from the Ostian Keep.

    I'm planning to start a photojournal with my Fire Emblem civs sometime soon. Is there a particular civ that you would like to see me play? Right now I'm leaning toward Plegia, but I'm open to suggestions.

    I tried Crimea a couple of times. Very string civ that is fun to play. The bonuses you get from great people are strong. And the extra population allows you to generate more great people.

    Greil Mercenary is one of my favorite UU. You basically are guaranteed alliances with nearby city-states, with some added bonuses on top. You just station them in nearby city-states, and when you neighbors declare war, just recall them back to defend.

    I would be interested if you did a photojournal with Crimea :)
