    Hey guys,

    Some may have already seen this WIP search/collecting thread in other places but I'm on the hunt for Civilization series scenarios/mods relating to these topics/games/TV&Films:
    Mars Colonization, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Command & Conquer, Red Alert, Dune, Master of Magic, Sid Meier's Colonization, Master of Orion, Doom, Babylon 5, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Fallout / Apocalypse, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The Elder Scrolls, Warcraft, and Heroes of Might & Magic.
    I've mainly been looking at classic Civ games (eg Civ2, Civ2ToT, and Civ3) so far, however I'm now starting to look at mods related to these categories for the newer Civ games too (eg Civ4, 5 & 6). I've found a lot of scenarios/mods on my own, and now I'm even making a few of my own lol! I’ve also decided to add FreeCiv to the list as there’s been some interesting total conversion Modpacks releases over the last few years so it’ll be interesting to see what cool stuff comes along in the years to come. Civ1 and specialty spin off games like SMAC, Civ4Col, CivBE get small mentions where applicable but not everywhere due to their lack of mods under all these categories. I'd love to include Call to Power 1 & 2 as well but there just doesn't seem to be many total conversion mods for them out there and none I can find under the above red categories of interest.

    Over the last year I've searched the SLeague site, backups of CradleOfCiv, Tecumseh's Village, Mercator's Civ2 Site, The Spanish Civ2 Site, Civ Mania, & Atomic Network, downloads and forum history of CivFanatics & Apolyton (open to suggestions of more places to search) as well as private msg'ing some of the gurus for this stuff and I've even made a few individual threads here and there but now I figure it's time I do a more combined public post in each of the Civ game communities to see if there's more lost treasures out there relating to the stuff I love that I don't know about. Plus this thread can be helpful to others looking for scenarios relating to these topics for many years to come. Also in cases where we find a scenario but its downloads are gone I can help restore them using my CFC large file access upload if a copy is found. Some of you may have seen me do this previously (eg like with Drift's Civ3 Master of Myrror) or even stick a copy on ModDB's free file hosting as it's not hard.

    I've mentioned this in a few places but I'm working a long term Civilization series youtube video project and website where I show people how to play classic Civ games in HD but I also take people on a tour of mods and scenarios that I love! A lot of these scenario types above would come under the category of 'crossover series' where an existing popular game, movie or tv franchise is brought into Civ's amazing TBS sandbox gameplay formula. I already have videos and tributes on my website and youtube channel for a lot of those other game/TV universes (eg I semi-regularly post C&C RA and Dune multiplayer matches) resulting in me having many community connections in those areas, so once this is all eventually done the series will hopefully bring in some fresh interest into the Civ community here.

    Anyway here are the results of my searches so far... so if you know of something missing or more places to search let me know! :)

    (Note: Many of these projects have working downloads in the newest comments instead of the original first thread post due to their creators being long gone and us fans rescuing their work)

    Mars Colonization

    Sorry, I don't know anything that could help you in this :(
    I THINK someone considered making, or made, Alpha Centauri CIv2 scenario, but it was so many years ago I forget what was it, and if it was at all.
    Sorry.

    -----------

    All good, thanks for looking anyway. :) I would love to find some Alpha Centauri themed Civ2 scenarios!

    Oh wow!!! I had not considered Fallout until you posted that. I'm super impressed with the screenshots in those threads. I might just have to add fallout to the list and do a video about them too haha. And you know of even more out there??? Please do tell. :)

    Someone on another forum also suggested I cover LOTR too.. I've seen a few Civ2 scenarios relating to it, and I think I've inherited some Civ3 ones from people giving me stuff. No doubt there's so many haha.

    Been busy finding rescuing (with help) some more cool projects over the last few months. Also as suggested by others I've added 2 more popular franchises to the list. A Lord of the Rings section and a Fallout/Mad Max/Apocalypse section and added a few well known scenarios to them. I am naturally on the look out for more good ones so please let me know about any good ones missing.

    I've also included mod authors or team leader names (when possible) to each entry to avoid further misunderstandings caused by some scenarios having the exact same name.

    List updates...

    I've been been busy some more lol! Have added another franchise section to the list that I like and see people making Civ scenarios for, Game of Thrones! I’ve also decided to add a FreeCiv game category to the list as there’s been some interesting total conversion Modpacks releases over the last few years so it’ll be interesting to see what cool stuff comes along in the years to come.

    List updates...

    Civ1:

    Civ2:

    Civ2ToT:
    • Have added mention of the official Microprose Lalande 21185 scenario to the list (in the Alpha Centauri / Alien Colonization section).

    Civ3:

    Civ4:

    Civ5:

    FreeCiv:
    • Have added mention of Cazfi's Alien Modpack to the list (in the Alpha Centauri / Alien Colonization section).
    • Have added mention of Magic Modpack (that I need to look into further) to the list (in the Master of Magic section).
    • Have added mention of some colonization themed scenarios and possible mods (that I need to look into further) to the list (in the Sid Meier's Colonization section).
    • Have added mention of the almighty huge and very playable FreeCol Project originally built from FreeCiv which is still going today.

    Nice job man!

    Civ2 stuff

    LOTR:
    I think you should add Age of Númenor, Darklord and Angmar to the LOTR list. Some are really not LOTR but part of wider Middle Earth/Arda Tolkien saga but it fits in there.
    There's also 4 scenarios made by a German guy I found digging through Apolyton archive and are apparently LOTR related (haven't opened them but I like the looks of Amazon units :cool: although I don't know what they are doing in Tolkien world).
    Moria a Dark Journey in the Dark
    Return of the king (sequel to above one, both from Civfanatics)

    Also other series:
    - Diskworld
    - Forgotten realms: Underdark, Banewars (from here),
    - Star wars: Battle for Adoij, Death star attack, Dominion, Independece day Borg (from here)
    - Dune: Dune the Battle for Arrakis (not sure if this is the official Civ2 modpack)
    - Warcraft: Azeroth (can be found on Civfanatics)

    There are probably more scenarios on Apolyton archive/Civfanatics.

    That is brilliant @axx ! Thank you so much! I look forward to going through these! You even bagged a Dune scenario for Civ2.. awesome.

    Also shame on me for forgetting Battle for Adoij as I have that and even host it on moddb as it was a big source of inspiration for my own unreleased Star Wars scenario.

    And yeah Warcraft is another franchise I should consider looking at!

    Important info for Thorgrimm's Fallout scenario: he warns you about overwriting the sound files in order to use them but if you put them at the same level of the art and text folders (in the "Sound" file. unsure if needs to be capitalized or not) they work just fine.

    Big update as I widened my search to get help from more communities out there and had some AWESOME responses from people so many thanks to everyone who's contacted me publicly and privately! I'm also starting to look more at newer Civilization games (4-6) and finding some good stuff. Someone pointed out that I should include a The Elder Scrolls (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim etc) section and gave me several Civ scenarios for it I'd never heard of! I'm a huge TES fan so how could I say no! People also gave me some Warcraft scenarios so yup, we've got a new Warcraft section on the list too, hell maybe I should look at Starcraft while I'm at it too lol!

    Hi Blake - I sometimes scour the internet for Civ3 repositories. Might I ask where you've been peeking? :scan:

    Hi Ozy, most of my successes in finding old repositories and backups filled with mods and scenarios has related to Civ2 (many of a which I link to in the top post) so most of my Civ3 breakthrough's have come from talking to friendly helpful awesome fellow collectors like @Node60 here, PaGe at civforum.de (he speaks perfect English), and GeneralKilCavalry at RealmsBeyondCivForum and asking for help. They have big collections and have been immensely helpful. That being said I've had a few successes on my own with Civ3 mod hunting and there's a few sources that have helped:

    • Thankfully it appears the entire Atomic Network site is backed up on webarchive however it is a ginormous mess to sift through lol.
      • I found a decent amount of Civ3 scenarios in a file called CivFinatics (you can view it's contents without downloading the whole thing HERE)
      • There's a bunch in one called StrategyGaming although I think the Civ stuff is a duplicate of the CFC one above (view contents HERE)
      • I found more (different to above) Civ3 scenarios in a file called Strategy1of4 (view contents HERE)
      • I'm sure there's so much more as so many old Civ3 mods at CFC link to general atomic uploads that weren't allocated to any category unlike the above stuff. However I do not know how to effectively find them as there's a 2,366 files each many gigs in size and like 98% of them are not named and merely have a auto generated download folder number meaning anything could be in each one and webarchive text searches don't look inside the zip files. So for example on the Star Trek mod download page you can see an extra bonus music download link to http://www.atomicgamer.com/file.php?id=86966 so presumably that download is somewhere in 1 of the 2,366 files there but folder numbers and file numbers are not the same so the 86966 is no help, I've got no true file name and even if I did I'd have no way to search within all those archive zip files for it. Very annoying! So I can't help but feel that those first 3 options above only scratch the surface of the true Civ3 content in these backups as so many civ3 mods linked to atomic.
    • I do text searches of the CFC Civ3 downloads section and the entire Civ3 CFC forum history for my topics of interest eg "Dune". When a download is missing I ask the public for help and I message or tag the 3 gurus I mentioned above!
    • Thankfully the entire old Apolyton downloads section is backed up, however big download files were not so while everything in the good old Civ2 section works things start to get hit and miss in the Civ3 one but nevertheless the Civilization 3 section is a great place to search for my topics of interest to at least find out that a scenario/mod existed that if its download doesn't work then I can at least search for it's name elsewhere now that I know about it.

    - Let's also add a, "General Call To Arms," o this. There were several other old sites in Days Of Yore - GI Dustin's come to mind, for one - which would certainly be worth "spelunking" for. :hammer: :D

    Haha thanks mate! Yeah any old website that hosted Civ2, 3 or 4 scenarios is of great interest to me. Especially if people can find old links to them (as name alone may not be enough if the site is gone) as I can then put that web address into webarchive. Like I said above webarchive won't normally backup large files in its web backup services, and only backs up web pages and a few pictures. However even without working downloads these sites can be immensely useful as their lists may contain/prove the existence of some rare gems that can be searched for elsewhere leading to a rescue attempt. Can't search and ask for help finding a scenario you don't exists so these old non-working downloads lists can still be very valuable. Any good site I find I actually put a link to in my top post in these threads (in the "Over the last year I've searched..." paragraph) so that 1. I don't forget about them and can recheck them for things and 2. others can use them.

    OK - I just Googled "GI Dusting Civ3" and got a hit for : Best created units and unit download sites - Apolyton Civilization Site -
    I am too weary for this quest myself, young comrade ( :old: ) but- Here's to a Happy Turkey Day, To Us All!

    (If you're not an American, and thereby perhaps unfamiliar with the inevitably bizarre nature of many American customs: I am referring to a bird, not the other. As to the "bizarre," we tell our children tales of that joyful, first, New England harvest of the "Pilgrims." We show them water color story books, so that they can "see," for themselves, the harmony between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag natives ... Yet, never once mentioned is that, just 16 years later, those same Pilgrims slaughtered the Wampanoags, committing the first Native American genocide, by English speaking Europeans.

    :hatsoff:)
