    Version 1.0: Civs, Units, and Buildings

    This mod is no longer in active development.

    The features listed below may not be the entire feature set, there may be more.


    What is It?
    Civs and Fixes is a modcomp for Rhyes and Fall Dawn of Civilization made using mods made by myself, Merijn, Steb and Citis. The goal of this modcomp is to showcase the ideas and creations of the DOC community, with some administrative oversight by myself to ensure the game remains as balanced, stable, and manageable as possible.

    I Have an Idea!
    Awesome! I'd love to hear it, and if I think it'd fit in CMC, I'd gladly make it for you.

    Here's a quick 3 step check for whether it'd fit in CMC:
    • Is the area it's in bloated? For example the Ancient Middle East in DOC is really empty, but in CMC an addition of any more civs would be overkill. Likewise, there are so few buildings unlocked in the last two eras, that I doubt I'll decline any suggestions for that, though it'd take a bit more to convince me to add something to say, the medieval era.
    • Does it feel like a Civ 4 feature? I'd rather not add something that doesn't match the feel of the game, so adding a resource that gives 2 health feels out of place as no resources ever yielded 2 of anything out of the gate, but adding a resource that yields 1 science is just barely believable enough for me to consider it, even if it's also just barely strange enough for me to be very skeptical of whether or not I should add it.
    • Will it be hard/time consuming to implement. I have many things I'd love to add (a smaller Western Europe and replacing Health from Crops and Livestock with Food for example), but they would take so long or be so hard to implement that I've been putting them off while I make smaller changes. Even if it isn't easy or quick enough to implement, that doesn't mean I'll never add it, but expect it to on an endless HiatusXHiatus.

    The mod folder must be named
    "DOC Community Mod Compilation"

    for it to work

    Where is the Download?
    https://github.com/earthcrafterman/Dawn-of-Civilization/tree/OLD-CommunityModCompilation

    Git Instructions
    1. Download and install Git for Windows.
    2. Download and install Tortoise Git.
    3. During the installation, you will be prompted for a number of settings. Most of these are only relevant to developers, since you only want to use Git for access you can simply accept the default values.
    4. Right-click on your Beyond the Sword\Mods folder and choose "Git Clone".
    5. In the prompt, enter the following as "URL": https://github.com/earthcrafterman/Dawn-of-Civilization.git

    8. Wait for the download to complete.
    Special thanks to
    @Leoreth for double checking my code
    The makers of the following civs:

    Unfortunately one gets this error trying to load 1700 AD and 600 AD scenarios and chosing Australians from 3000 BC scenario simply crashes to desktop.

    I'll get on the Australian crash right away.

    The second error is well known and present in DoC's FAQ. The fix is to open it in a word processor such as Notepad++ and convert the line endings (EOL Conversion) from Unix to Windows. For some reason, Github likes to mess with the line endings of scenario files.

    EDIT: The 3000 BC scenario seems to be broken in general. No one use it until I push a fix.

    Found the error, the 3000 BC scenario was missing a BeginPlayer before the Swahili Civ. Fixed and Pushed.

    Thanks for creating this - do you plan on incorporating 2nd UU and UB into this eventually?

    I do plan to incorporate the 2nd UU and UB mod eventually, but at the moment I am concerned with balancing the modcomp as it currently stands. Implementing the 2nd UU and UB mod means I will need to work with Merijn and Steb on picking appropriate UUs and UBs, finding art for them, and designing their effects. This would be a much bigger undertaking than any of my previous or current work, and so I'd rather do it once I have the current civs balanced to my liking.

    If you try to select Israel from 600 AD start the game will hung: it will say Waiting for another civilization to move from 600 to 610 but it will never happen.
    Also could you please upload right here the standalone 1700 start file? No matter what I do with Notepad++ it still shows the same error even with Windows EOLs...

    Fair point. I'd love for Leoreth to incorporate this (and the 2nd UU UB) into the mod proper some day.

    Leoreth, do you plan on merging some or all of the new civs into the main mod (at some point in the far future, of course)?

    I'd say the new civs mod and the 2nd UU/UB mod should probably remain separate, otherwise the combination starts diverging too much from the base game, I think.

    1SDAN, good job on the merge, by the way.

    Thanks! Merging mods is surprisingly easy. All you need is some cursory knowledge of programming, an understanding of how to use TortoiseGit, and enough patience and logic to debug stupid errors.

    Speaking of merging, I don't normally pay attention to people's names, only their avatars. So I only recently learned your IGN while making my modcomp. Sadly, because I had merging mods on the brain, I misread Merijn's name. XD

    I'll look into the Israel 600 AD error in the morning. I'm not sure why the 1700 AD scenario specifically would have this error. Does the fact that you're specifying 1700 in particular means the EOL conversion fixed the 600 one? I'd rather get the mod as fixed as possible instead of relying on exterior downloads. Could you upload the 1700 AD scenario file in question? I want to see what's wrong with it.

    here we go.

    By the way, where is Bloemfontein and largest city of South Africa Johannesburg in Boer city names? It is either another Pretoria's or many Kimberly's...

    I will.

    Probably because South Africa currently uses the English CNM first and the Dutch second. On my local version I already swapped them, but I didn't push it yet. I have some more updates I want to include first. (I think it is also more convenient for 1SDAN to merge one time than a thousand individual times)

    I could see some of these civs in DoC, probably only with a larger map though. And I would probably do my own version of them, while relying on the ideas/assets here to some degree,

    I can't figure out why the 1700 AD file is unable to be read, and I lost the original so I'm unsure of where the error is. All that I know is that when I compared the working one with the bugged one, git said there were no differences.

    Israel seems to be the only civ affected by this hang and has only been affected on the 600 AD scenario. Does anyone have a list "usual suspects" for this type of issue? I've looked at the scenario files and 600 AD has no differences with 3000 BC pertaining to Israel.

    You would have to rename main mod to something else because this modmod has to be named exactly like the main one...

    The custom art for most of the factions is gone! They just use the vanilla art for various units, can i solve this myself?

    If everyone wants I can change the name of the mod folder so that it can coexist with DOC, I've already figured it out months ago.

    @Darnokthemage I'm not sure why the custom art would not work, I don't think I touched it. Are you talking about VD, or did something else in my mod break?
