    (Community Edition)
    Current Version: 1.0
    Original Author: Lincoln_lyf

    A Total Conversion Modpack originally created by the amazing Lincoln_Lyf, with a special emphasis on strengthening the core Economic, Military and Political gameplay of Civilization V, while ensuring longevity and heaps of new content. Currently undertaking the task of fixing bugs, adding content, and balancing the experience to ensure a challenging experience for both new and returning players.

    Join us on our Discord Server, to help keep this project alive.
    Check out the Quickstart Guide here.





    SUPERPOWERS aims to provide a fresh, challenging, and content rich experience with optimal stability, balance and performance to make it viable for a Multiplayer experience.
    Some core tenets regarding the design philosophy of this experience are as follows:
    • Expand upon the amazing base laid by Lincoln_Lyf
    • Perform changes to the balance to ensure no unfair advantages
      and to make the experience more challenging.
    • To provide a rich late game experience with added mechanics
      such as electricity, manpower and a plethora of new techs,
      buildings and units.
    • Ensure and improve Multiplayer compatibility.





      Exciting Late Game Experience
      - 4 unique components for all 43 Civs: Many modern units and buildings
      - A fully new designed Tech Tree with two new eras: World War Era and Future Era
      - A fully new designed Policy Tree and Ideologies
      - Plain water plots can be improved
      - Strong terrain modification abilities in the late game
      - Space race: launching orbital satellites for global effects
      - More challenges in the late game from enhanced AI and increasing maintenance cost of your nation


      Realistic and Challenging Domestic Affairs
      - 200+ new buildings, wonders and improvements
      - Cities will have corruption & public Security issues
      - Cities will upgrade by reaching higher population levels, unlocking advanced buildings, wider working distance, but causing pollution and traffic problems
      - New Strategic Resources with global effects: Manpower, Consumer Goods, Electricity
      - Move your capital to a new place for a better efficiency
      - Move your population inside your cities for a better efficiency
      - Nations with a higher Tourism Output will attract international immigrants from other countries
      - Happiness will be more important: affecting tourism output and international immigration


      Enhanced Combat System and Modern Warfare
      - 2-unit-per-plot system for units’ coordination operations and larger battle scale
      - 100+ new units and promotions
      - Highly specialized military units with diverse abilities and cost
      - Realistic naval units and air units design, powerful but expensive
      - Unique legendary elite & experimental units in real history await you command
      - Workers can turn into militia units for war mobilization or logistics service
      - War is dangerous: intensive war will cause population loss and even nuclear winters.


      Comfortable & Efficient Game Experience
      - Fully tweaked game balance: no “weak” civilizations, policies, wonders, units, etc
      - Adaptive difficulty level: AI’s bonus depend on your performance
      - Rapid & compact game pace with zero “garbage time”
      - Automated Management & Batch Operations: control hundreds of cities or units in one-click





      As of now, the project is only available in a MODPACK version that has to be manually installed due to use of DLL mods, however a Steam release in the future would be optimal.

    i thinking the first thing to do is make compatible with community patch and have the possibility to play with others mods not a closed modpack.

    A lot of features from Community Patch are already integrated, and other mods are compatible with this project, just not all of them (Those which replace pre-existing files and functions )

    I've been trying to integrate some more mods like Vassals/ Corporations. It might take a bit more time since it usually either interferes with EUI or the mods lua files, but it should be possible if a concerted effort was made.

    I started a game with your mod(looks great btw) but it crashes whenever I go to the strategic view. Either it's my old rig or a bug?.. but I never had that problem before with the older version of this mod. Regardless, I'm glad to see you chose to revise this amazing mod. It's the best mod for civ5, in my opinion.

    It's a known bug at the moment, I believe some of the new units and buildings are causing this, but I am trying my best to fix this one. Glad you enjoy, there's a lot more info on the Discord (we also report bugs and suggestions there!)

    I am glad that this mod I love has been revived.
    Contrary to the research text, I can't see a few units of the future era, so do you have any plans to update them? (EX. Arsenal Ship)

    Glad you enjoy it! The Future Techs integration is mechanically almost complete (maintenance costs, electricity costs for buildings, pop requirements etc), however the texts need to be updated. Leads to some confusion because some Future Units were removed to keep with the original vision of Lincoln_Lyf, and sticking to a slightly realistic approach to Future Era tech and units. A lot of units from the Future Era mod have been disabled as of now (Dinosaurs, Biounit etc). The Arsenal Ship in particular was removed because the model was already being used by the Railgun Battleship, however if you have any ideas or suggestions hop on over to the Discord!

    Thank you for your answer!
    I'm already looking for discord from time to time.
    It's not an idea, but my favorite part of this mod is the part where the unit upgrade line is kept clean and tidy.
    I hope all kinds of units will have their own upgraded version in the future era.
    Thank you for your efforts.

    The link to the Discord is here: https://discord.gg/CtwmyXbttw
    We're usually more active there, and it's a bit easier to communicate ideas, suggestions and bugs there.

    Also if you enjoy unit upgrade lines, then a lot of new options have been added. Since modern naval and airforce units cost a lot of maintenance, the slightly less high tech variants are not considered obsolete and can still be constructed by nations with weaker economies. As for the Future Units, they can be upgraded to from Information Era units, or you can choose to produce Information Era units if you cannot handle the massive maintenance costs associated with constructing cutting edge Future era units.

    its three folders and you put all 3 separately in the DLC


    edit: I think the three folders are in the actual mod folder, then you take them out
