Wa-Swahili, or “shore people”, designates the inhabitants of the East African coastline, and signifies above all a culture with a common language, Kiswahili, and the same religion, Islam. The medieval sites along the Swahili Coast represent a single cultural tradition with diverse local traditions that can be traced to the ninth century, which is considered to have developed into the modern Swahili culture. Currently, there are 173 identified settlements that flourished along the Swahili Coast and nearby Islands from the ninth to the seventeenth centuries, which include the sites of Kilwa, Malindi, Gedi, Pate, Comoros, and Zanzibar.

Sultan al-Hasan ibn Sulaiman, often referred to as “Abu’l-Mawahib” (“father of gifts”), was the ruler of the city-state of Kilwa, from 1310 until 1333. Sultan al-Hasan ibn Sulaiman is reported to have have been a generous and intelligent man. Numerous construction projects took place during his reign, including the building of the Palace of Husuni Kubwa and a significant extension to the Great Mosque of Kilwa.


Unique Ability: Coral Construction - Districts in coastal Cities receive a Major adjacency bonus from the City Centre, and a standard bonus from being adjacent to a Harbor. +30% Production towards Traders.

Unique Unit: Jahazi - Swahili unique Medieval era support unit. +1 Food and +1 Production to adjacent water tiles. Adjacent naval units may heal outside friendly territory. Like the Builder, its price increases for each copy you train.

Unique Building: Pillar Tomb - A building unique to the Swahili. The Pillar Tomb is cheaper than the Monument which it replaces and provides +1 Great Merchant Point for every 2 Districts adjacent to the City Centre (rounded up).


Al-Hasan ibn Sulaiman:

Leader Ability: Palace of Husuni Kubwa - The Harbor District provides +1 Housing and +1 Culture, increasing to +3 Housing and +2 Culture if adjacent to a City Centre. Recieve Great Admiral and Great Merchant points from training Jahazis and Naval units.

Agenda: Father of Gifts - Dislikes civilizations who are competing for Great People if they do not develop their cities. Admires civilizations that maintain the maximum number of districts in most cities and is home to many Great People.

The Swahili use Persia's music. The mod should be playable without the Persia DLC, but there will be no music.
As the UA's adjacency bonus is done via modifiers, the bonus will not display in the UI unless you use Simple UI Adjustments. ( )
The Zanzibar City-State is renamed Ternate
This leader is not animated.

Love your mods. Would you be willing to build a Basque mod? I've never seen a Basque mod in all my years of playing Civ 4-6.

Mod doesn't work for me - if I enable it, it throws me to the menu. I tried disabled any other mods and it didn't help. I own every dlc.

@Elaine!: If you've not discovered a fix yet, I've found it's caused by mods conflicting with each other. For example, as this one changes harbor yields and adjcency bonuses, if you also normally use something like TCS' Improved Water Yields, that might be what is/was doing it.

I really liked the Jahazi mechanics

hey there - found a bug. When you are building a Jahazi in a city that has a harbor but is not on the coast, the mod will let you try to build the Jahazi but when the build process ends.... there is no Jahazi at all. This is also true if you try to buy a Jahazi in a city that has a harbor but is not on the coast. You can spend your gold all day long but no Jahazi appears. Hope you can fix. This is still my fav Civ 6 mod.

Hello, just so you're aware, one of the citizens, when randomly selected by the game shows up as "LOC_CITIZEN_SUK_SWAHILI_MODERN_MALE_10".

Awesome civ I LOVE it

Only...when adding it to Multiplayer, the other human player gets to see the crescent and moon in his production screen next to everything which can be produced...

I was playing with Swahili and my friend with China.

Its a bug I guess?
