Tomatekh's Historical Religion Mods
17 items
Description
This mod is compatible with both the Brave New World and the Gods and Kings expansions.

An edited down version of the mod which only includes religions which the official civs have a preference for (13 new religions) can be found here: Historical Religions Edit (BNW or GK). A version which includes all of my various denomination packs in a single download can be found here: Historical Religions Complete (BNW & GK).

~~~

This mod adds 51 additional historical (pre-modern and indigenous) religions and schisms to the base game. The religions are complete with icons, civlopedia entries, etc.

The individual leaders are also updated to choose their appropriate historical religion. A civ's in-game religious preference is, if applicable, listed in parenthesis after the religion in the list. This is merely their programmed preference and not any indication of where a religion originated. A civ may only have one preference.

~~~

Note:
- This mod requires either the Brave New World or the Gods and Kings expansions.
- Updates to the mod will most likely break saved games. Do not update unless you are ready to start a new game.

The mod has Norse religion, but calls it Forn Sidr.

@LandUnderWave

Thanks! Glad to hear you are enjoying the mod. There’s a Greco-Roman add on pack that actually includes Mithraism if you’re interested. Over the years I've released a ton of add-on packs for the mod, or just check out the "Complete" version which has all the packs in a single download:

I have a religious studies degree and I was always having to just slap a more accurate (for my civ) name on an existing religion icon, but this is so much better. Now my Mithraist Romans don't have to use crosses. Thanks!

Note: The term "Sioux" isn't really a tribe name. This false identification of the Lakota came in error when 18th century French fur traders asked the Ojibwe's what kind of people lived to the west. They said "sioux" which in Ojibwe language means "enemy" - not a tribal name. The word "Lakota" actually means ally.

I played a game with this mod en after like half an hour I saved the game so I could play further the next day, but when I loaded the savegame, it didn't work properly. Every city had Budhism and had the American symbol, also I couldn't do anything with my own city. All the citys looked really weird and I had to delete thissavegame. This 'bug' happened every time I played with this mod. I hope someone could help me out with this problem because I really like this mod.

That sounds overly complicated, I'll see what I can do, thanks for replying.
