Eggman Empire Civilization (G&K or BNW)

This mod adds Dr. Eggman and the Eggman Empire to Civilization V. However, it's not compatible with vanilla Civilization V - you need either the Brave New World expansion or the Gods and Kings expansion to be able to play this.

Note: Some of the screenshots above might be outdated. For example, in the current version the Unique Unit has 65 melee/ranged power.

- Eggman Empire Civilization -

LEADER: Dr. Eggman

TRAIT: Scientific Genius (Strategic Resources provide +1 Science. Receive a tech boost each time a scientific building/Wonder is built in your capital.)

UNIQUE BUILDING: Capsule (Replaces Circus) - Doesn't provide Happiness. Needs 1 improved land animal resource in city to be built (Deer, Sheep, Cattle or Horse). Provides 10% Science, plus 1 Science for each one of these animal resources in city. Has higher maintenance cost. If a city with a Capsule is captured, the capturing civilization will gain much more gold as would be the case in a city without a Capsule.

UNIQUE UNIT: Death Egg Robot (Replaces Paratrooper) - Strong ranged unit that can paradrop. Has a special promotion that reduces adjacent enemies' combat strength by -10%. Requires 1 Iron to build. Can't be upgraded.

Additional Info:
- Dr. Eggman (also known as Dr. Robotnik) is the infamous antagonist from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. This civ is all about science - science to be able to conquer the world, that is. All these science bonus are sure to make Eggman's master plan successful!
- Includes custom diplomacy and loading screens, along with custom canon-friendly dialogue and proper Civilopedia entries.
- Custom music! Includes "Peace" and "War" themes, like the other leaders. The peace theme is Eggman's theme from Sonic X, along with the boss theme from Sonic 1 (PAL version, bass & percussion only). The war theme is Eggman's theme from Sonic 2006/Unleashed/Colors.
- All city names reference actual Sonic games locations and stages (Metropolis, Chemical Plant, Death Egg Hangar, Scrap Brain, to name a few)
- All spies were named from Eggman's most popular robots (Metal Sonic, Egg Robo, Egg Pawn, Moto-bug, to name a few)
- If you only own Brave New World or play Civ 5 with this expansion enabled, don't worry - the mod is now compatible with both expansions. No matter what expansion you have, the mod is playable. However, if you don't own 'Gods and Kings', nor 'Brave New World', you won't be able to play the mod.
- Dr. Eggman, Sonic the Hedgehog and all other related characters and settings belong to Sega/Sonic Team and I claim no ownership over said trademarks.

Not really interested anymore, this should be my first and last mod.

Are you planning or would be interested in working on any other custom civ mods in the future?

Great work, love this mod. If you do come out with an update could you throw in a few Archie Sonic city names, like Robotropolis?

Ok, that sounds good. When you do decide to update for that shoot me a message on steam and i'll send you the music file through skype.

That's a pretty good suggestion. I don't recall if I considered using that theme back when I added music to the mod in 2013, but if I did, I probably settled on the current war theme because it was used in about 3 different games (06, Colors and Lost World I think?)

I'm not considering updating the mod any time soon, as it's currently a stable build and works fine. The music is simply a matter of preference at this point.

I have a suggestion with the war music, use the one that plays in Sonic Adventure DX when Sonic fights the EGG Viper. It would fit really well with this mod, it's not that fast paced and it's not too slow paced.
Doc  [author] Feb 6 @ 4:40pm 
As previously stated, after many tests, it was clear that while fast-paced music would fit in a typical Sonic game, the very same themes wouldn't work too well in a typical Civilization match. So I had to settle down on something more slow-paced and subtle.
