Basic information for all the Rhye's and Fall type mods.
A rhye's and fall mod features civilizations appearing gradually normally based on historical accuracy, rather than all civs starting at 4000 BC like a traditional Civilization game does. UHV stands for unique historical victories. This is another common feature of these mods, where to win you have to try to complete 3 historical goals unique to each civilization.

Completeness summary
* = Unplayable or nearly all features missing
** = Playable but with a lot of major features missing
*** = In a decent condition, but will have some notable missing features
**** = Should be able to have a good game, may be some minor bugs or minor features missing
***** = All features present, little to no bugs present

********************************Greek World Mods****************************************************


Rhye’s and Fall Greek World (Revived Again)

Summary: "Experience 5000 years of history, from the dawn of civilization to the fall of the classical world."
It covers the ancient and classical world in Europe, Middle East, and North Africa. If you love your ancient civs such as the Sumerians, Minoans, Elamites, Mycenae, etc, then this is the mod for you. There is also an alpha version (by Arkaeyn), an alpha patch (by Spaceman98) and a beta version (by EdmundIronside) of this mod available for download. However bluepotato's version is by far the most stable and complete version, and is the one you should play.

********************************History of the World Mods******************************************

Rhye’s and Fall of Civilization
Summary
: "This mod doesn't feature loads of new units, civilization and other "stuff", and doesn't break the core of the game: fortunately Civ4 is a much better game than Civ3, so it won't need as much rebalancing. It just revolves around re-enacting the development of the Earth, coming close to being a simulator.."
The original mod that spawned a thousand imitators. However you will probably want to play Dawn of Civilization, unless you don't like all the changes and additions that have been made, and prefer a more stripped down game.

Rhye’s and Fall - Dawn of Civilization
Summary
: "RFC is not in active development anymore, but in my opinion there are still many ways to improve on it to make it an even better history simulator and an even better game. In this way, Dawn of Civilization intends to become RFC's spiritual successor in continuing where it left off." Adds more civilization and much greater depth to the original mod. One of the most popular Civ mods ever.

Rhye’s and Fall - Sunset of Civilization
Summary
: “Welcome one and all to the grand reboot of my personal modmod, now with a more creative and less narcissistic name!...Well, what did I retain from old Dawn of Knoedel then? Mostly a few minor things like some more Independent cities, Taoism being founded upon construction of a Confucian Temple, Cultural Golden Ages at certain thresholds etc." Offers a variety of tweaks for DOC particularly when it comes to civics.

Project Synthesis
Summary: “The goal of this mod is to combine the greatest modmods of RFC and greatest mods of BTS into one, nice, mod." Adds a mixture of features from the Original Rhyes and Fall and from Dawn of Civilization. A kind of halfway mod between the two, more in depth than the original, but less in depth than Dawn of Civilization.

This list of Rhye's and Fall mods is pretty close to complete. Let me know if I have missed any, or if any of the information is incorrect.

Well, a few years ago I half-jokingly made a modmod of DoC that buffed Watermills to a ludicrous degree to protest how underpowered they were at the time. If you dig through the DoC subforum enough, maybe you can find it. :lol:

A fellow named Dumanios reuploaded RFC Civilizations in Abundance. I thought a new link for that would help for this guide.

Hi
Well I ran across this thread so I decided to take a look at the different mods, some of which I already played a long time ago. I particulary liked the RFC classical world mod even though I realize that it was never really finished and that it will probably remain like that forever(even though it is listed as complete in the list above). In particular a lot of the UHVs are pretty much broken (about 1 out of 5), so I tried to give the mod a go once more and to at least try to correct the UHVs. So i managged to do that, in fact it wasn't that difficult, most of the errors were just typos in the phyton code. I didn't change any UHVs, I just corrected the code so that it checks for the correct UHVs that the authors of the mods wanted to code. So in attachment are the victory.py file and the CIV4GameText_RFCCW_Victory.xml file. Just put the first one in the /assets/phyton folder and the second in the /assests/xml/text folder. Most of the changes were made to the victory.py file, the XML file I modified only when there was an obvious typo (like wrong year number or "in" insted of "by" or similar). All the UHVs should work correctly now expect for the Tamil Chola UHV2 (because the Grand Anicut wonder is broken) and the Tamil Pandya UHV2 (because corporations are broken) and I can't fix that by just modifing the victory.py file. I hope this will be helpful to somebody, if there are still people who play these mods after all this time.

If you included RFC Britannia (which instantly CtDs on start), you could add RFC Antiquity as well.
From what I've gathered, the mod died as soon as RFGW development started, but they made a nice map and a basic mod (without new civs or RFC features) which can be downloaded here. There's also an improved version of the map here.

I need to update this list anyway as some of the links need updating. RFCGW and RFC Classical World in particular have had a lot of notable changes in their development. I will add RFC Britannia and RFC Antiquity when I update the list. I still hope to do some work on RFC Britannia. Maybe use RFCGW as the base mod (which has the code I am most familiar with) and importing the map for Britannia into it. However this summer will be the absolute earliest that I might have the time to try that.

Okay I have updated the list of RFC mods. I have tried to streamline it and make it more user friendly. I hope people find it helpful!

Hi EdmundIronside, thanks for the list. Is there any update?

Not much has changed recently to be honest, so not much to update.
I did notice that the Rhye’s and Fall Greek World (Revived Again) link was out of date, so have updated it.
The only Rhye's & Fall mod which has had any activity in the last year is Dawn of Civilization. I'm pretty sure version 1.17 will be released this year, so that will be a major update.
There is a new micromod for Dawn of Civilization called "historical colonization" which I probably need to add to this list.
There is also a new Rhye's & Fall of Spain mod, (https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/recontinued-rhyes-and-fall-of-spain.663216/) however I don't believe there is a functioning download link currently, so haven't added that to the main list yet.
