    Hello Everyone,

    FYI, Are you aware that we have created an extended Mod that includes Zoroastrianism, almost completely with new buildings, re skinning and religious system?

    If you are interested in extracting it out, send me a message. Have a look at it.

    Cheers
    Houman

    No It doesnt exclude Judaism. It excludes Confusianism.

    Houman this is the RFC forum, so as you'd expect we were talking about adding Zoroastrianism to Rhye's mod not to vanilla civ.

    i have a question... how come it is that when someone wants to put a new religion in the game like Zoroastrianism it's always replacing Judaism? Why not replace of the the 3 that are in the asian realm... they are the ones that annoy me. Why not make a mod that focuses on the main religions of the middle east and europe?

    - Because Judaism spreads in an unrealistic manner, and generally enjoys influence far beyond any reasonable amount for a non-proselytising, racially-based faith.
    - Because they are used in UHVs, Judaism is not.
    - Because then Asian religions would be omitted altogether. RFC Europe might be your thing.

    Only in that it spawned Christianity and Islam. The Israelites and their faith itself however weren't ever really big players.

    Judaism seemed the obvious choice to replace because of the highly ahistorical way it can spread throughout the near east in game. But you're right I could have equally found justifications for replacing one of the Asian religions. IMO the whole religion system in CIV is silly; it falls into the trap of trying to fit every religion into the Abrahamic, missionary mould and it's hopelessly shallow and oversimplified for such a complex aspect of human civilization.

    What I mean is you can test it in our mod and extract it out to include it in Rye's Mod. I was trying to give a hand.

    Besides your last statement shows you are familiar with Zoroastrianism. :) I like that.

    Zoroastrianism ftw. I agree that religion in Civ 4 is done quite badly. Religions seem to pop up randomly in your cities, you can't removes religions, a poor choice of religions... bleh! Tbh, I think you should have removed Confu/Taoism, due to the fact that they are de facto the same (In game ofc), but anything with Zoroastrianism gets my vote!
    Oh btw, I tried Total Realism, but it had a habit of random CTD, so I had to stop =/ The bits I saw were very good though.

    CTDs were in previous versions due Dales combat mod (before Gold series).
    We worked a lot on the religion mod and extended it to give more freedom.

    Maybe we could do a brainstorming and see how can improve Zoroastrianism and make it even more realistic?

    Yeah, problem was it was in the Gold version. I know this isn't the TR thread, but a few suggestions as to why would be appreciated. It was really good, and a merging of the two mods (Rhye's and Fall + TR) would be kickass.

    Does anyone have this mod still? I just downloaded the new patch, and it overwrote Zoroastrianism. But the old link to the mod is dead.

    Please get the link from my signature. Our conversion to BtS isnt finished yet. It is still Warlords edition.

    Regarding Rhye's Zoroastrian Mod's progress I have no idea. After my proposal to brainstorming nothing else came really.

    Regards

    Sorry my host likes to change domains around every two minutes... it's very frustrating. The files I linked to earlier are now here
    http://joeyroe.arvixe.com/Zoroastrianism for RFC.zip
    But they're for an old version and I don't think they'll work any more.
