    Get it from the workshop.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nri_kingdom

    UU: Safe Haven: After researching Philosophy, Citizens from rival pre-modern Civilizations occasionally Migrate to your Cities. The frequency of migration increases if your empire is happy and at peace.
    UU: Mburichi (150 :c5production:, req Currency): Can conduct a Trade Mission for 30 Influence and Gold. Can only be trained in the Capital. Trained 33% faster before the Renaissance Era. Obsolete with Economics.
    UB: Bronze Caster: Replaces forge. +2 :c5culture: +1 :c5production: (+1 :c5production: on iron and bronze). Can be built anywhere, but boosts military unit production only by 5%.

    Credits:
    - janboruta: graphics (except listed below)
    - Tomatekh: map
    - Irkalla: icon

    So whoTH are the Nri? A pacifist, religiously controlled nation that seemed interesting to have in the game.

    Things didn't work out as planned though, e.g. it was impossible to make the Mburichi a faith purchasable unit without granting it to every civ. So now it works exactly like the diplomatic units in the City State Diplomacy mod (fully compatible).

    Another failed experiment was making the Piety tree available at start. Got that working (a bit hacky though, so was not happy about it), but it turned out to be a bad idea: in combination with Nri's often poor jungle starts, taking it so early is shooting yourself in the foot [EDIT: funny how this is in BNW now, guess I was just playing poorly ;)].

    Finally the UA is of course inspired by killmeplease's Emigration mod, though I made a nearly completely new implementation, as I wanted to keep the rules simple and focused only on the Nri:
    • Base migration frequency is every 40 turns. This drops for each (major) civ you meet, down to 16 if you have met them all. If some of them are eliminated, turns will go up. There is a little randomness involved too.
    • Your happiness reduces the turns by 25% if very happy (10+ :c5happy:) and 50% if extremely happy (30+ :c5happy:). If you are unhappy, turns are increased by 100%. Notice these are the opposites of the unhappiness levels used by the game.
    • The source of the migration is evenly drawn based first on civ population, then (once the civ is chosen) on city food levels.
    • The target of the migration is off course always the Nri. Cities with high food have the highest chance at receiving immigrants.

    You could make the unit faith purchasable by only the Nri by making it require the UB.

    I used pagoda, which is not a UB (which I incidentally renamed to berserker hall in the text), and a new "berserker warrior".

    Nevertheless, put your unit where berserker warrior is, and your UB as stated, and it should work out.

    Of course, you may have to change the tech your unit is available at and fiddle with costs and such to make it balanced (since it does require a building)

    Of course, you could create an invisible UB as well and link the unit to that so you would not be dependent upon a building that does not make sense in the context of the unit and building. Use LUA to put it in every NRI city.

    Code:
    <Unit_BuildingClassRequireds>
    	<Row>
    		<UnitType>UNIT_BERSERKER_WARRIOR</UnitType>
    		<BuildingClassType>BUILDINGCLASS_PAGODA</BuildingClassType>
    	</Row>
    </Unit_BuildingClassRequireds>

    This seems like a very cool concept for a civilization. Well done.

    Thinking about my above suggestion, you'll have to come up with a new building class, not just a new building. You need to make the basic building class somehow unbuildable by any but the Nri. I'm sure this can be done, but not how to do it. The wizards online here likely could advise you on that.

    Does the turn frequency adjust depending on game speed?

    I think this is an amazing civ. I love when the more advanced modders make really unique and cool abilities for new civs.

    Also, is it uploaded to Steam? I couldn't find this or your Khazar civ there.

    Hm I'm sure I tried that. As a test I had it require some random building, and I could still purchase the unit without it. Strange. Will give at another look.

    Whoops. Thanks for pointing that out, will fix.

    Not yet. I decided to wait until I get good artwork. This one may also see a proper release coincide with the Zambezi project schedule.

    Thanks for the appreciation :)

    This mod looks great. However, you can't really use this civ with the Emigration mod, can you? The UA would be redundant, no?

    I wouldn't say so. The two migration mechanics are completely separate. Immigration from the UA would be on top of what the Emigration mod already provides.

    Updated to take gamespeed into account. Also removed the jungle start preference.

    Updated the UA algorithm and added Tomatekh's fantastic map (see image attached). Get the new version from the first post.

    The new algorithm is simpler. You get "migration points" each turn and when they reach 100, you have 50% chance in subsequent turns for migration to trigger. Points are then reset.
    • +1 for each civ you met, except
    • -1 if you are at war with them
    • +2/3/5 if your happiness is above 0/10/30
    • -2/3/5 for the same numbers as above, but unhappiness
    Also a nerf though: in one of my test games against Nri with the old version, I lost a citizen from my capital at turn 30. Some people would probably not like that, so I put a prereq on the UA: Philosophy.

    The target selection remains the same: the origin is drawn in two steps (civilization & city); based on population (high) and then food (low). The target is again selected in function of food (high).

    Hmm, do you think the title text of the map-sized version of the map is too unclear? The "cultural extent" part. Do you want me to fix it up a bit? I hadn't really checked what it looked like in-game.

    This mod now features fantastic art by janboruta (see screens attached to first post) and has been updated for BNW! Get it from the workshop.

    Great to finally see it officially released! I look forward to adding it to my BNW games.

    Janboruta has also outdone himself with the art, as usual.

    I can probably make a much nicer version of the map now than I could a few months ago. I'll try and do an update once I get back into modding in the middle of the month (and the palm fronds worked out with the plant motif in all the BNW maps).

    Thanks, but the map does not need updating, really!

    Courtesy of janboruta and myself, I've attached a compatibility patch for this mod to work with Gedemon's YnAEMP (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=397387). The first attachment is the patch itself, which may be installed like any other mod by extracting its contents into My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization V/MODS, whilst the second attachment is the project file for Moriboe should he return.
