What's the best unit to pump out early? (In your opinion ofc) What's the best unit to take cities with? It's a bit much to take in all the new units and all my regular tactics obviously aren't working anymore xD Would love some coaching!
Amazing mod!

Heya, gorgeous mod by the way ^,^ just wondering how you get to underdark areas.. since I haven't seen any 'rothe' yet.. and playing as Lolthite Drow.

My issues were my own fault, I had forgot to uncheck an extended era's mod that was causing really odd issues. All is well without it on. I installed Advanced Custom Setup, howeve rhe Faerun maps are not in the list when opening the custom advanced window. Is there anything I can do to get the map to load? I think hotseat will work, just need the map. Thanks, and really nice work on the mod!

Good to know, thanks. I'll have to look into getting the expansion :) Still have my fingers crossed for the Fey'ri Warlock ;)

@knickalen If you want to engage in spellcasting (including transforming to werewolf) you'll have to use the BNW version. best, FA

This is really amazing, thank you! I know in a future update I'd love to see Tieflings/Fey'ri Warlocks. Ever since Neverwinter Nights 2 I have loved playing them. Also is there a way to have a character change into a were creature? I know next to nothing about creating anything in the game. Was just curious if something could be done based on having to ready some ranged artillery units. Elven Archer is rushed by melee, changes to werewolf. Anyway just idle thoughts and hopes. Truly epic job :)

@tbpkrark Next small update includes a more "big quest" monsters with different rewards, including massive experience for all friendly nearby units when the boss is killed.
tbpkrark Nov 16, 2014 @ 10:22pm 
Love it. Would it be possible for you to make the extra strong barbarians (dragons, necromancers, ogres, etc) give more exp than normal units when killed? It would be so much more satisfying to kill them!

I loved this mod until I updated it to 17! What happend? Can I unupdate somehow?
PhantomWolf Oct 27, 2014 @ 9:23am 
Really cool. Wish I new how to generate 'Charter' though
Ciryon Sep 18, 2014 @ 9:51am 
is it posible to have the downloable file ? I am on linux and the workshop is not yet enabled so I cannot test it.
Denizen Sep 15, 2014 @ 10:03pm 
@tc.Simply the Best: That's pretty normal and both units fly, why wouldnt they be able to go over mountains?
Mobile Turnip Peddler Jul 1, 2014 @ 10:10pm 
Dragons somehow embarked onto the ocean and now i have some flying boats who's home i have decided to be on top of a mountain
Ordellus May 28, 2014 @ 9:58pm 
Just saw last update.... I guess it's safe to assume none of the bugs with this will be fixed...
Ordellus May 28, 2014 @ 9:53pm 
How can I disable the overpowerd adventurers and special creatures?

The game always evolves into a giant wait game where 90% of the units are completely useless.
DHGxRandomxShot May 14, 2014 @ 2:17pm 
Now do I have to set the Medieval restiction on? Or should I let it play out where I have infantry? Or did you already lock it?
Civitar May 11, 2014 @ 9:44am 
This was the first mod I ever played...it is superb . Even though I didn't know any of the civs and just grabbed Mithral Hall because I like Dwarves.
Dan Dapper Raptor May 3, 2014 @ 3:09pm 
This mod is full conversion and will not stack well with ANY other mods. By itself though, looks really good!

"To Much you have to do just to play a mod, No Way Ill Play"

Is clicking 'Subscribe' that hard? It's a really good mod. I love it.
Hell_Bent Apr 11, 2014 @ 6:18am 
Is there a wiki explaining who the new civs/ leaders are and faerun specific mechanics. I find the lack of any explanation bewildering.

Love the idea, but once i move my first settlers the unit info in the bottom left of the screen dissapears and i cant get it back. Please fix~
Calydin Apr 4, 2014 @ 10:32am 
Love this MOD! Only problem? I cannot play it with friends. Are there plans to make it multi-player?

How do you win the new victoy types. Like expansionist.

For some reason the mod isn't even downloading. Any suggestions as to why? I've subscribed...

Clerics can't move unless they have 2 move space range. Is this just me? how do i fix this?
Cross Cowboy Mar 11, 2014 @ 6:13pm 
This is a fricking outstanding mod...changes the whole game and makes it like new. Im still re learning everything and love it. Love the little events that pop up all over the place!! Dont have any idea whypeople are staying they are having money issues, because everything seems ok to me...dont like your start then restart!! Again, great job and cant wait to see what else you either add or come up with. Would love to see more Deities in the game, but thats a small thing.
Docsis Mar 11, 2014 @ 4:41pm 
I can't believe this requires "Gods and Kings" expansion. I have the "Brave New World" expansion which has everything from "Gods and Kings" except some of the Civs... Is there any way to make this work for those of us with only the Brave New World expansion?
JTSCrafter Mar 7, 2014 @ 7:24pm 
great mod
Wolvie Feb 25, 2014 @ 9:08am 
The amount of work that went into this makes it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. My WaterDeep is invading the UnderDark <3
Irate Wanderer Feb 24, 2014 @ 3:36pm 
could i play a hotseat game with friends with this?
Lavender Gooms Feb 23, 2014 @ 8:03pm 
This is a pretty great idea for a mod and it's obvious a lot of time went into it. There are some good ideas in here, but it's just not fun to play. Civ is not a fast-paced game even normally, but this mod makes it move at a glacial pace even on quick. Everything progresses so slowly and there are way too many obstacles to progression. Artificial limits on how many cities you can settle, how many of a certain type of unit you can have, extremely low yields on gold and food so cities take forever to expand and it's nearly impossible to avoid going into the red on gold production.

After spending a few hours with it, I can't recommend it.
☯Mabyn☯ Feb 16, 2014 @ 12:05pm 
Baldur's Gate is definitely my favorite civ in this, because CHILDHOOD MEMORIES.
odaharry Feb 7, 2014 @ 11:05pm 
Clerics dont heal. How do they work? only says heals nearby units by 10HP. well if they are right next to them nothing happens :(
Do they only heal specific units or some tech u gotta research????
saleen74 Jan 31, 2014 @ 4:09am 
love the idea, however upon installing the mod and activating it, the entire game crashes when trying to start a new play through. no other mods even subscribed to, mods database deleted and all your steps followed. any further ideas to allow me access to what im sure is a wonderful mod?? please and thank you!!!

Disabling "GPU Texture Decode" under Video Options don´t work for me
Greythorn Jan 4, 2014 @ 1:31am 
Of course you can win expansion, the charter sytem just wont let you build new cities, nothing says you cant conquer someone elses.
superork12 Jan 3, 2014 @ 2:22pm 
Make it for Brave New World.
framedarchitecture  [author] Jan 3, 2014 @ 2:19pm 
Additional hero slots are opened up by researching in the Alignment line of techs (good, neutral, evil).
007drizzt Jan 3, 2014 @ 1:54pm 
Has anyone found out about getting more than one hero?
Soldier 0f4Tune Jan 3, 2014 @ 10:37am 
The other victory conditions are red herrings, you can't win expansion - you'll never control a vast amount of tiles due to the charter system and you can't win religous because that goal post keeps moving - majority in every city and you can't remove other religions, plus the other civs keep creating more cities.

Go for the magical victory and form a highly mobile monster posse with heroes and cavalry to go hunting necromancers, shadow druids and dragons. The rewards for killing these are great. I also got a suprise attack by an angry ogre which was scary. The creatures summoned through spells are fun as well. The wonders are interesting too, some of these look cool, I loved Undermountain. It does capture the D&D spirit in a way.
Soldier 0f4Tune Jan 3, 2014 @ 10:37am 
Excellent Mod! Lots of detail and work gone into this.

What's really telling is the way this plays so differently from normal Civ 5. The spell system instead of culture policies is good fun and clever. My arcanists had so many special promotions listed they went off screen!

This ruleset is quite restrictive and prevents the usual expansion path, but this is a good thing because it allows you to focus on the cool stuff like the monster quests. In my game I won with just 4 cities - pop 10 x 3 and 9 at the end.

You can only win a magical victory - which is getting all the spells of 4 schools and then being allied to 4 magical city states. The best way I found was to use your max of 4 explorers to explore the map and find all the city states and then wait until the last few turns before you complete the spell schools and then buy off 4 magical city states with a large lump sum of gold to secure their alliance and victory.

The graphical issue is not the mod but a single unit in the mod. Disabling "GPU Texture Decode" under Video Options may solve the problem.
NexBeedrill Jan 2, 2014 @ 6:59pm 
Dunno if this is the mod or not, but whenever I try to start a new game using the mod, I get major graphical errors that hurt my head just to look at, with this black void that's constantly in flex, taking up more of the screen.
pillair Jan 2, 2014 @ 6:13pm 
wen i launch civ 5 it doesnt work
robertwalkre Jan 2, 2014 @ 4:58pm 
How do you get charters other than the one you intialy start with? I know that ye can trade for them with other civs but nother then that i have no idea...
