    Hello, I'm new here, but an old fan of Civ since Civ 4. Although, Civ 5 got me through my deployment to Afghanistan in 2011.
    Anyways, new to the board and modding. So, stand by for the dumb questions.

    No mods to Civ yet, have for FO4/Skyrim SSE though.
    Started with CTP for Linux way way back.
    Have a video posted on getting it to work with modern distros, it's still a fun play.

    Alas, got sucked into the Diablo series for many years, then WoW. (don't ask my playtime in that game. It's kinda a stoopid big number)

    Came back for 5 and all the stuff with it, started using mods.
    With 6, playing with the tools and may make something, dunno what yet.
    Having too much fun with the possiblities with FireTuner right now.

    I'm the tinkerer type. "What happens if I do.... oh, that's what happens. Note to self..."

    I've been playing Civ games since Civ5 was released in 2010. I feel bad for not playing the older games, but I do like the talking leaders. Combined with interesting movement.
    I studied Anthropology for my Bachelors and Masters degrees.
    Got no modding skills to offer, except for historical research for Civilopedia, Unique ideas, even city-lists.

    In particular, I'm interested in the indigenous peoples of the Americas. I've got a whole row of thick Smithsonian books about all the North American Indians, divided into cultural area. And a book about South American Archeology.
    The second area of the whole I'm interested in is Southeast Asia. Third is West and Central Africa. Fourth is Oceania. Fifth is East and Northeast Asia. Sixth is South Asia. Seventh is likely West Asia. Eighth would be Europe.:p

    Hello everybody. Civ6 is my first Civ game, and when I bought it I immediately became interested in modding. At first I kind of dabbled in everything, but now I have settled on making XML-based Alternate Leaders/Civs. Right now I have finished everything for an Edward IV of England mod, but I don't know how to make my leader art show up in-game. I've tried many ways.. None of them work.:mad: :badcomp: I also have a Bohemia civilization with Ottokar II as the leader. I need to finish the text and the leader art for it.


    If anybody is interested in helping with text/leader art, please tell me.

    One day I hope to have a map of Europe where it's so crowded with civs that each one can only have one city and everybody is having a land rush for Iceland :p

    Hey, fellas. I love me some Civ, but I'm new to the modding scene. Finally decided to take Persia into my own hands after Firaxis went with Achaemenid again (understandably, I suppose). Hope to learn enough to make a leader set for it, and in doing so be able to give back by helping others once I've reached a point where I'm experienced enough.

    Besides that, I'm an author.

    I've been playing civ since Civ 3, started playing in 2001. I've started modding civ 3 with my friend. Then Civ 4, civ 5 and now civ 6. I've always been fascinated by the World wars.
    So that is why I've made the Relive World Wars mod. I try to make the best I can (I've made some arts and a lot of coding), but now I'm modding Civ 6 alone, so it's a long shot.

    Hi everyone. First interested in Civ when I stumbled across the Civ 5 Battle Royale. I loved learning about new cultures and leaders that I was only vaugly aware of before hand. Picked up Civ 6 at launch and now ready to enter the modding frey. Currently working on a South Africa mod with ideas for a few others as well.

    Only picked up Civ VI because of YouTube, never played one before, am completely hooked. Also been stark against modding games for a long time, but since playing this game, leader mods and city state mods and stuff have grown on me and now I'm trying my hand despite never coding or programming a thing in my life. Be gentle lol

    Hey guys.

    I've been a Civ player since the first game came out (although I was a little too young to truly appreciate it), and have played every single version a little too much. I've been a lurker on the CivFanatics forums since Civ IV and figure it's about time I gave something back to the amazing community here.

    I'm not the best player, so creating a strategy guide isn't quite my thing, but I am a composer of music. So I'd like to make myself available for any of you out there that are creating any mods that might require music. I am a classically trained, orchestral composer, so I'd be very interested in helping to craft something that would fit in seemlessly with the original score for the game, or for any sort of overhaul that demands a classical soundtrack - like a traditional fantasy setting.
