This is a huge Earth map with 17 civilizations to choose from and 23 City States, including 13 new city states I created just for this mod.
Civilizations: America, Aztecs, and Iroquois
City States: Rio de Janeiro, Tikal, and Cuzco
Civilizations: England, France, Germany, Rome, Ottomans, and Russia
City States: Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Lisboa, Athens, and Madrid
Civilizations: Egypt and Songhai
City States: Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Kinshasa, and Aksum
Civilizations: Arabia, Persia, India, Siam, Japan and China.
City States: Singapore, Seoul, Lhasa, Almaty, Bandar Seri Bagawan, Sidon, and Karakorum
Australia and New Zealand
City States: Sydney and Auckland
Greece is not in because they would be imposing too much on the Romans and the Ottomans. I have added the city-state of Athens to replace them for the final version, but I have created another version to try and appease everybody.
The map is based off of Dale's Huge TSL Earth map. Most of the terrain is the same, but there have been some updates in key areas. All the resources are hand placed for strategic balance. There should be quite enough resources for everyone to get their hands on everything eventually. Some resources are sparser then others, and quite a few of them can only be found in certain regions of the world. I believe this will stimulate both trade and war and make for a better game.
Most recent is version 6.
This will likely not be updated again barring any problems
Go to the mod hub, download, install, and use it just like any other mod. To play you will have to select Shiggs Earth as your map once the Shiggs Earth mod is enabled. It is Huge size only, you can adjust the difficulty and speed settings but that is all. All victories are enabled except Time, in case anybody doesn't want the game to end at 2050. Be sure to have "Load Scenario" checked as with other pre-set up maps.
Alternate Download - This is a compressed file, to use it you will need to extract it to your Civilization 5/MODS/ folder. Then in-game, go to mods, enable Shiggs Earth and ensure to have load scenario checked.
There are two option maps I've recently created. To use these maps you should extract them to your MODS/Shiggs Earth (v6)/Maps folder.
They are both essentially the same map, only with some minor changes, the names basically explain how they are different.
Shiggs Earth Domination Only
Shiggs Earth Greece Included
Note: you will need to have Shiggs Earth installed for either of these to work (they are not stand alone)
Recommended mods to use with this map:
Valkrionn's Economy Mod
Afforess' Active City Defense
Bhruic's Tree Growth
