The Goths (BNW or GK)

Adds the Goths to the base game.

The Goths were an east European tribe of Scandinavian origins whose two branches, Visigoths and Ostrogoths, played a significant role in the fall of the Roman Empire. Although sharing common language, customs and beliefs, the Visigoths and Ostrogoths followed divergent paths and each founded a medieval kingdom.


- This civilization requires either the Brave New World or the Gods and Kings expansion.
- Updates to the Mod will most likely break save games. Please do not update until you are ready to begin a new game.
- The mod uses a UU graphic from a Gods and Kings scenario. If you do not have the second expansion, the mod will automatically switch to a backup graphic. (This is aesthetic only and does not affect gameplay).


Leader: Alaric

UA: Sacker of Rome: Non-mounted land military units may use enemy roads before the Industrial Era. Capturing a foreign Capital triggers a Golden Age.

UU: Gadrauht: Replaces Swordsman. Heals double when pillaging a non-road Improvement. +15% Combat Strength in Rough Terrain

UB: Hov: Replaces Stable. +1 Faith per Horse, Sheep, Cattle worked by the city. +10% Land Unit Production (instead of +15% Mounted Unit Production). -10% Production Cost.


- Leader, Map, DoM graphics by Janboruta
- Base assets (UU, UB, UA, Leader icon, and 'Alaric' image) adapted from the Firaxis "1066" DLC and "Fall of Rome" scenarios.
- Alternate UU graphic by JTitan
- Music files by Andreas Waldetoft from Crusader Kings II
- Korean translation by [KOR]SJKHR
- DoM voiceover by Andrew Holt
- All code and art otherwise not listed created by Tomatekh (primary author)

why don't you just get points towards golden age for capturing cities? the capital seems really, odd.

No mod is MP compatible; Firaxis hasn't enabled mod use in multiplayer games. There are a few fan made workarounds (advanced setup screen, giant multiplayer robot, etc.) but nothing that can be done by default.

is this mod or any other mods that add civ's multiplayer compatible?

@King CuddlySniffy III

It's an interesting idea for a civ, but sadly I don't have enough free time to make it.
