    Welcome to the Super Civ Work in Progress Thread.

    I've decided to proceed with my old "super" scenario idea. It's gone through a bit of a redesign so here's the lowdown.

    F A C T I O N S

    League of Heroes - the City's only active super hero team. Led by Techno Angel.

    United Underworld - led by Nemesis your stereotypical uber bad guy with a grudge against the League of Heroes. Attempting once again to take over the world.

    C.H.A.O.S - International crime and terrorism organization dedicated to undermining and overthrowing world governments.

    Celestial Order Of Evil - A secret order originating in Asia. The Celestial Order Of Evil is dedicated to recovering ancient artifacts and treasures of Lost Civilizations.

    E.G.O - the Evil Government Organization formed to locate, catalog and monitor members of the super hero community.

    City Authorities - the municipal government for the City. Unfortunately, the voters do not realize that the Mayor is a member of a carnivorous alien species preparing the way for an invasion of the city.

    T E C H S

    Infrastructure - base building techs available to all factions

    Spoiler :


    Powers - super power techs for the League of Heroes

    Spoiler :


    Crimes - techs available to CHAOS, EGO, City Authorities, Underworld and Celestial Order of Evil

    Spoiler :


    Master Plan - "Space Race Victory" techs available to CHAOS, Celestial Order of Evil and the United Underworld.
    Spoiler :


    U N I T S

    Buildable Units (from the Crime Tech Tree)

    FIRST POAST!!
    Interesting. Can't find the original thread though.
    The city pic looks a bit like TTD.

    I fixed the link to the old thread. The city terrain is mostly Yoda Powers.

    Looks very cool... and very different from most mods (we need some Superhero mods)! I will go back and read the old thread to get the full lowdown :).

    That's better... now, um... there's absolutely no similarities between these characters you're making up (i.e. Fu Manzhu and C.H.A.O.S) and ones that have already been invented, amirite?
    I'm with Nemesis all the way.

    amirite? - I had to google that. I am thinking of turning Amirite along with Originalium into resources.

    Here's a quote from one of my fave sites: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage

    That's because you're over the age of 17.

    But that's quite fun. Reminds me of Mega-lo-Mania, which had lots of minerals with silly names - Palladium is the first one to come to mind.

    I'm over 17 too, I found out what it meant onf forumwarz :D
    Palladium? But it does actually exist. Was this something related to paladins?

    Yes I'm quite a bit past 17 now. Megalomania on the other hand is a pop-reference that I do get because I played it on my old Amiga computer :)

    Here's the pedia reference for Originalium

    I was looking forward to the previous incarnation, but this looks even better!

    Sidenote, where did you find the Ninja? Cos he seems to have a gun on his back...

    LMR - The ninja is by Utahjazz. I'm pretty certain it's a sword rather than a gun.

    True, it does exist, but the Mega-lo-Mania icon for it was a top hat and white gloves, if memory serves. There was another one called Parasite that had an unpleasant-looking creature for its icon. You get the general idea.

    LMR - I'm definitely using the tech icons and the building graphics you made.

    Spoiler :


    Started editing the biq last night and completed the main parts of the Civilizations tab: leader names, military leaders, traits, aggression levels etc. Next step is to link in the leaderhead graphics and flcs and complete the Race sections of the Civilopedia. I'll post some screenies over the weekend.

    He-Yak, The Jester, The Whatsit, Duke America... Gee, I wonder if any of these are references to anything else. :lol:

    Looks interesting so far. :D

    ALso, as for exotic resources, if you're going to have Amarite and Originallium, you might as well also include Unobtainium (which, of course will be rare and a pre-req for the Doomsday Device "spaceship" part and certain other high-end units)

    It should definitely be an in-game theme.
    Maybe this one's better, actually:

    ok. Never got round to doing the leaderheads because I got stuck repairing a computer for a friend. Still I managed to get the buildings nailed down so here are some pics (graphics are courtesy of our friendly, neighbourhood LMR).

    @HT - I don't know what you are talking about ;)
    you might have spotted some of your own units in the lineups too. I'm very grateful to have Altima especially

    @Takhisis - I have some royalty free music already picked out - I'll post a few links later.
