    Wonders


    As any good total conversion mod (as this one aims to eventually be) would have its own set of wonders, here is a list of possible wonders that will eventually be developed and included.​

    -Grand Necropolis (Earn culture each time your own units are killed) - (Great Scientist points)
    -Redcliffe Castle (15% friendly territory combat bonus to all units. provides a free castle) yes, I realize it's exactly the same as Himeji Castle
    -Hall of Heroes (grants a free technology. Has a filled work of Great Writing slot) - (Great Engineer points)
    -White Spire (15% production to all mage and templar units. Spawns a a Knight-Commander, a powerful templar unit with a Great General Ability. (Knight-Commander cannot be otherwise built)) - (Great Scientist points)

    I know you've just started... But do you plan on adding some support?
    (About the civ: it looks nice, though the UAs description is a bit confusing.)

    People might assume 'Local hunting mabari' is some kind of feature in-game you've added, when it's just the 'fact' you've based that part of the trait on. Just make it simple, like +1 Food on Forest Tiles and Melee Units may attack twice.

    Orlais appears to be more straightforward, for example.

    Yeah, true. I just figured it was necessary to explain why they received that bonus. I'll go ahead and change that up.

    I do plan, once I have the individual civs complete, to make a combined package that also changes barbarians to darkspawn, adds a complete soundtrack, changes the existing religions to lore-friendly ones, and adds new techs (like, lyrium mining, enchantment, etc.) that allows units like mages and templars to be built.

    I just wanted to mention the fact that I am looking for one or two co-authors to help with both XML/Lua, and with unit models. If anyone is at all interested, please let me know.

    How about an inquisition civ, w/ only one city (Skyhold. UA should probably diplomatic or war based, UU would be the inquisitor a great general replacement that can be combat capable(there should be 3 types of inquisitors(mage=siege, rouge=archer, warrior=swordsman, but only one can be active at a time and should not exceed to more than one inquisitor). idk about UB, this is just an idea and i think youre doing a great job w/ the mods love orlais btw

    I'm not planning on making the Inquisition a full civilization, as they are only an organization; not a nation or a cultural group. I am however planning on making the Inquisition and the Grey Wardens into city-states, alongside the rest of the Free March cities.

    I'm so excited to see someone finally creating this! I'm a huge Dragon Age fan and I've wanted to put something like this together for a long time, but as a mac user, have not been able to write up mods :(

    I'd be happy to help in any way that I can. At the moment, I think all that I could really do is aid with the creation of traits/UU/UB for each civ, but I intend on getting a PC later this summer, so I can then help with more later on?

    I think what would really pull the mods together is a simple total conversion scenario with the map of Thedas filled out, and having barbarians replaced by darkspawn, perhaps with even some sort of Archdemon mechanics for a blight.

    Let me know.

    That's the idea; a total conversion mod, with Barbarians replaced by two factions; darkspawn and wildlife (spiders, wolves, dragons, sylvians, etc.). Also with a new tech tree, lyrium as a strategic resource, mage and templar units, lore-friendly religions and wonders, the Grey Wardens as a militaristic city-state that gifts units with a bonus to fighting darkspawn, the whole shebang.

    I might even split up the barbs into three factions; demons being #3, since I also want to have the Inquisition as a city-state, and it would be cool to make them like the Grey Wardens, just their units can fight demons a lot easier.

    Maybe a mechanic that lets mage units be very powerful, but the more a civ has, the more likely demon units are to spawn in their territory. As for the blight, I was thinking of a wonder/project along the lines of the Manhattan Project in the vanilla game called the blackening of the Golden City, which gives whoever completes it a big boost to culture, faith, and science, and at the same time spawns a horde of darkspawn and an archdemon somewhere on the map.

    The Inquisition could actually be a full civilization that plays like Venice. Though I noticed you already have Kirkwall and Starkhaven like that, you could probably turn Starkhaven into the Free Marches (unless you're counting on them to make up the most of the City-States?).

    In any case, it would be great to play as the Inquisition, with the capital being Skyhold and the ability to maybe annex city-states like Austria or "buy" them like Venice. The former is a bit more thematic as the Inquisition basically helps them then "protects" them.

    Cultural city-states could be Dalish clans, faith city-states Chantries?

    All in all, that's a very exciting prospect!

    I have gotten a few people say that the Inquisition should be a full civ, And about the same amount of people saying they shouldn't, and there are strong arguments for both sides. My personal opinion is; they're an organization. A powerful one, granted, but I personally feel like making them into a full civilization would be a lot like making the Chantry or the Templars into a civilization. It's not set in stone yet, and my mind could change, but for the time being, I'm leaning towards the idea of making them a special kind of city-state, alongside the Wardens.

    I have no intention of making the Free Marches into a combined civ; you hit the nail on the head there guessing that I'm using them to fill out the majority of the city-states.

    The Inquisition does not have a culture or history. It should be a city state (and let's be honest, there's no overload of city states around, good to have another)

    I think demons, wildlife, and darkspawn would be great. "Assault on the Golden City" might be a cool project, but alternately you could simply have a strategic resource called "Archdemon" around at 7 points on the map, and if touched by a darkspawn, it would create an archdemon. I think that might be the most true to fiction way of doing it.

    What other religions are you thinking of adding? Dalish Gods, Tevinter Old Gods, Chantry, but what else? Qun?


    Oh, just anecdotally, I have downloaded all three that you've completed, any idea how to fix a bug in which the Orlais leader screen isn't showing during diplomacy?
