A Companion Civ Pack to The Elder Scrolls Civilization V Map Pack

***********************************COMMUNITY NOTICE***********************************

The much requested map pack is here: The Elder Scrolls Civilization Map Pack

UDPATE Jan-19-2016

(UPDATES) Khajiit Skooma Factory now allows Production to be moved from this city along trade routes inside your civilization, as normal workshops do. Stormcloak sound bug fixed.

All maps have been transitioned to the Elder Scrolls Civilization V Map Pack (link above). I wanted to add some scenarios and more map options, but given the size of this file, it is hard to get Steam to upload it correclty. Therefore, I have split the Civ Pack and made the Map Pack as well, with more scenarios coming soon!

PS GO GET IT! It has a new scenario map called Domination!. 9 civ free for all with True Start Locations, including 19 city-states with true start locations as well. Domination is the only victory type.

Short answer is yes.
Long answer is "Spend 30 seconds and describe what you want inside the search box."

Is there a way for me to have ONLY the Tamriel civz in game ? When I setup the game, it keep all of the original factions, plus add in the ones from this mod.
I dont really wanna use the standard factions, is there a way to turn them off ?
lazyllamainc Apr 26 @ 4:36am 
Could you make the units for the new civs have unique skins? For example, make the Argonian units actually look like Argonians instead of recycled skins?

Why not multiplayer

I can't seem to find the Tamriel map, just me or are other people having this problem?

There a start where everything is alrdy made like a preset map?
Olb Feb 3 @ 10:53am 
Solved my problem : I needed to change my game language to english.
(I have still some earth landsmark, but city state are correct now)
Olb Feb 3 @ 9:49am 
I probably missed something, but when I start a game, all city state are vanilla, not TES-lore friendly.And I have mount Fudji on the map...
Any idea ?

Hope you're considering developping a similar mod for Civ 6. :-) You had some really cool unique traits and civilization concepts for 5, wonder what you could come up with in six...

If this mod gets updated, it would be nice if Argonian Workers could flood grasslands to make them into marsh tiles.
