    I'm Sorry to announce that I have given up this mod, also after the 1.4 Update it has a lot of the civs don't have UU's because of a bug. If anyone wants to use anything from this mod they are free to do so.
    If you are interested in another project by me check out Rhye's and Fall of Spain. Of you where only interested in the new Civs you can go to this link Where you can request your own civ.


    Hello everyone! I have created a mod called Historia Vincit as you can see here. I have been working on it for months and It has a lot of new features.

    Map: I added a map called Earth Evolution 2, you might know it since I use it in a lot of my other scenarios but this one is a bit different.

    Paganism: Unhappiness from state religion present in city.
    Bureaucracy: 1 Unit of the current era appears after building a fort.




    Spoiler Civil Wars and Historical Spawns :
    Civil Wars:
    If a city get's 3:mad: more then :) and there are less then 50 Civs then 3 options will appear:
    1. Pay 350 to mercenaries to kill the rebels. Nothing Happens except you lose 350 gold.
    2. Leave the Rebels Alone. The city as well as the units in the city become an independent civ that you are not at war with.
    3. How dare they! Bring me their leaders head on a pole! The city as well as the units in the city become an independent civ that you are at WAR with.

    Roman Civil War: only gives you 1 option and the new civ is Byzantium.

    P.S. The new civ get's all the techs you have.

    In the 1000 AD Scenario civs will get units based on the current year. EX: Spain will get 5 Conquistadors, 3 Galleons, 1 Settler, 2 Explorers in Mexico in 1492 AD, and many other things like these.
    In the Rise of Rome scenario the Huns will spawn with this feature in 300 AD.
    In the Rise of Islam scenario this is how you will get the crusaders after clicking end turn until 1000 AD with the Crusaders.


    Spoiler Dawn of Man :
    A lot of the civs have a unique dawn of man text for each scenario though I couldn't finish all of them,


    I am still working on this Mod and really want to add spawns like in RFC but don't really now how so if you have any idea please contact me!

    Credits are in a txt document file in the mod.

    Special Thanks from me to:

    @Fullerene for the Earth Evolution 2 Map
    @Leoreth cause I used a lot of unit art from his mod
    @Spillsandstains helped me understand python a lot more
    @The_J and @platyping used a lot of their python scripts
    All other credits are listed in the txt document in the mod, if you think that I missed anyone it is possible so tell me.

    Known Issues: If the game has very many civilizations and you open World Builder the game will crash! You can try but I recommend you give it a save before you do that. This also applies to hack Ctrl+X. Just press save game before you do it.

    DOWNLOAD LINK: Download Link
    Update Patch: Patch

    Also I have not done a lot of testing so if you find any bugs tell me:)!

    This looks super interesting! I'm curious why you chose this revolution mechanic instead of the RevDCM system though. Could you say?

    At the time I decided to create Civil Wars I did not know about the RevDCM mod. Now I might change it though, and also add Barbarian Civ.

    Yeah but I also added a ton of new units and civs so I don't think it will work with RevDCM.
    P.S. From all the scenarios in this mod Earth 2020 took me the most to finish.

    But If you want to know I always work on scenarios for mods I like, so I already almost finished and Earth 1000 AD for RevDCM and 1000 AD for Realism Invictus with the normal map. (not the upside down one)

    RevDCM is very flexible. I can show you the files to edit to add new civs to it.

    I've added new units to mods with RevDCM without apparent issues, though now I'm wondering if some of the bugs I've seen could be caused by me not realizing that there are changes required for units... Anyone with RevDCM experience know if any files need to be edited to include new units?

    I know how to add new civs, I added like 20 to my mod. but anyway I don't want to because I also did some python in the event manager to make the Spanish declare war and get a stack of units in Mexico and many other things. So if I merge it with RevDCM I will also have to merge the event managers. And I don't want my mod to be merged with BUG.

    And believe me, merging python files is incredibly hard. I had to choose the main interface file in between Inquisitor or Scrolling score board. I chose the score board. But in the next update I will try to merge them and add religious victory and Inquisitor

    Platy has some excellent python tools that should help with any merging's you may want to do. I use quite a lot of his stuff when making custom scenarios for my boys and myself. You may want to take a look and see if that will help you out.

    Platy is one of the best python modders in Civ 4. I wonder why he stopped? Well anyway I knew about his python and I use his Platy pedia in this mod.

    I'm currently to busy to work on this map anymore:( especially since I'm working on an RFC project which is very time consuming so here is the uncompleted map.
    I couldnt do the following:
    -Add units and cities to the civs in the Americas
    -Still need to add a couple of civs in Asia
    -Didn't built any improvements and roads

    I stopped at Ethiopia so if you want to continue thats from where you should start.
    If I have time I might work on it again but for now I'm sorry.

    Played a decent amount as the Moors; the game crashed every time I tried to build a lancer. Otherwise was fun.
