The Dickinson College Civilization V mod, “The Rise of Rome” presents a historically accurate model of the expansion of Rome throughout the Italian peninsula from the late 6th century BCE to 264 BCE. We intended to recreate the conditions that the Roman Republic faced at it grew to dominate the whole of Italy. The goal is to take over the peninsula by completing a domination victory before 264 BCE, the year in which Rome was drawn into war against Carthage in Sicily. Dickinson College supported the creation of the mod with a Collaborative Student-Faculty Research Grant. Our team was comprised of Ian White, research specialist, Catalina Ionescu, coding specialist, Todd Bryant, coding advisor, and Scott Farrington, research advisor.
We only changed the leader name of the Roman civ and we created 12 new civilizations throughout the peninsula and 4 new city-states. We designed each of these civs and city-states as historically as the game allows with the most significant modification being the system of puppeting and annexing conquered cities. The newly included options represent the system that the Romans employed during this period of time to exercise power over cities and tribes.Players still have the option to puppet or annex a conquered city. If the player chooses to puppet, they must choose whether to make the city a municipium, a civitas sine suffragio, or a colonia. A player who creates a municipium will receive significant gold bonuses, but only for a certain amount of turns before the player will have to change the city’s status; a civitas sine suffragio will grant the player military units, but it will cost the player gold and production; a colony will give the player a brand new city on the spot of the old one, but the player will suffer gold and production penalties. The most successful players will expand through the peninsula by employing a mixture of these forms of puppeting. Systematically annexing the entire peninsula was impossible for Rome given the historical limits of population and economy. Therefore players who choose to annex will pay a significant gold penalty.
The thirteen playable civs are : Rome, Samnium, Latin League, Senonian Gauls, Aequi. Volsci, Greek Colonies, Umbria, Etruscan League, Picenum, Lucania, Sabines, Veii.
There are also 4 city-states on the map are: Marsi, Marrucini, Praetuttii, Brutii.
The game map is intentionally small in an attempt to limit the time commitment of a full game for students who play the mod as part of a Roman History class. We resized kisinid’s Penisola Italiana map and eliminated the areas outside of the Italian peninsula. We placed the cities and resources according information we found in the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World (2000) and Nicholas G. L. Hammond’s Atlas of the Greek and Roman World in Antiquity (1981), the ancient sources, primarily Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita, and the essential scholarly text of the period, T.J. Cornell’s The Beginnings of Rome: Italy and Rome from the Bronze Age to the Punic Wars (c.1000-264 BC) (1995). Some elements of the map, however, as explained more fully in the ReadMe file, are not historic but necessary to balance the gameplay.
We removed religion from the mod because religion as defined in Civilizaton V was not a significant factor for Roman expansion through the Italian peninsula. We slowed research down considerably to prevent civilizations from acquiring ahistorical technologies.
