JFDLC: Rule with Faith

IMPORTANT This mod is not currently being updated, maintained, or developed. This is simply a matter of my own personal disillusionment with Gathering Storm, and should not be considered a reflection on the state of modding for Civ VI atm (well, its partly that). I'll re-visit the mod after the development cycle for Civ VI has ended.

This is a re-release of Rule with Faith. Rule with Faith is an overhaul of and expansion to existing game mechanics, with a focus on fleshing out the game's political and religious elements.
Current Features
  • 6 additional Governments. Existing Governments re-worked.
  • Civilizations now start as one of 3 Governments: Horde, Polis, or Chiefdom.
  • Policies overhauled, and three additional Types: Religious, Cultural, and Scientific.
  • New Civics to extend the Renaissance and Industrial Eras.
  • Great Person Policies are now Technical Policies and distributed across the Tech Tree.
  • Governments now belong to Classes (Monarchic, Aristocratic, Democratic) and switching between Governments of a different Class penalizes Loyalty.
  • First Ministers replace Government secondary bonuses to allow you to mix-and-match different bonuses with different Governments.
  • Dark/Golden Ages now decrease/increase the effect of Eurekas and Inspirations.
  • New Dark Age Policies offer powerful bonuses but risk plunging you into a Dark Age. New Golden Age Policies, meanwhile, can aid you in getting a Golden Age - but at the cost of other bonuses.
  • Great Theologians - a new Great Person - continue to put Great Prophet Points to use.
  • Peerage offers a new way to generate Governor Titles ala Influence and Envoys.
  • Consulates and Great Statesman give an new avenue for Influence generation.
  • Great Mercenaries provide an opportunity to acquire unique units.
  • Extend the utility of your old Governments with Empowerments.
Requires Rise and Fall. Vanilla may be available in the Links below. Don't bother asking for a Vanilla-compatible version; if it doesn't exist already, there won't be one.
If you're experiencing issues, it's highly likely to be a mod conflict. I don't know and can't support your modding setup as it is unique to you. Other issues include the DLC Load Order bug, which you can read more on below. Otherwise, if you think you have a legitimate bug, you can post a bug report on the Home Page[] with your database and modding.log files.

See here[]for info about the DLC Load Order bug.
This mod will be incompatible with any other mods that alter the GovernmentScreen, Great Person Screen, or Civic and Tech Trees. Use gameplay- or UI-altering mods at your own risk.

Great statesmen provided neat little bonuses like envoys i believe, loyalty (pressure), gold, but also more unique bonuses if i recall it correctly. I really dont remember it fully :/
I wish he would have added them back too, alongside great mercenairies, however, that would also require a new district (consulates) for the statesmen, which is mutually exclusive to the government plaza, and that the government plaza isnt once per nation only but just like every other district, once per city.

At the very least, that is how it worked back when this whole mod worked.
If my previous reply was snappy, im sorry. Hope this helped a little bit more.

just wanted to see i could use an autoplay mod with this and find out what great statemen do

@jjj, 99% certainly at this point in time (since the frontier pass and the update etc). Didnt use it, because it is horrendously outdated. Please read my comments below.
This is a mod for rise&fall only. Everything past that is not supported, tho the modular mods do support the current updates (i believe). They at least support Gathering storm so are more recently updated than this mod here.

Does this mod just crash the game when used

Sounds like andysec18 is a salty anti-science global warming denialist. it's not fear-mongering, it's f_cking fact and if you don't like "fear" then you should support renewable and sustainable energy instead of receding into your backwards ideology.

Also the WC/UN has not been a consistent feature since Civ. It was just a regular wonder in Civs 1 and 2, 3/4/5 offered it as a victory option but each one was different (and it was incredibly inconsistent, with 5 making it pretty much an economy victory for whoever could buy off enough city-states).

If anything VI proved that the world congress in its previous incarnations was superfluous and broken, what they came up with was a much better alternative that introduced a new type of diplomatic capital instead of just using gold.

I also feel totally shat on by Firaxis for the preachy Gathering Storm fearmongering expansion which you must have to have the world congress feature, which has been in Civilization for at least 20 years. I'm not getting it either, but I love this mod.

@Erenussocrates Its been a while that this mod has been released for GS in separates modules (look for RwF in workshop)
