Militia Defense

In 1 collection by framedarchitecture

11 items
Militia units automatically rise up to defend against foreign invasions.

Mod Mechanics
* When an enemy unit first enters hostile territory, the defender raises at least one Militia near their capital.
* The number of Militia raised increases by one per era past the Ancient.
* Militia are much weaker when fighting outside friendly territory.
* Militia are disbanded after 20 turns (varies with Game Speed)
* Militia units that reach Level 2 may enter permanent duty for a small Gold fee.
* Minors and Barbarians cannot raise Militia, nor will they cause Militia to be raised.
* Occupied and Puppeted cities cannot raise Militia.
* Unhappy Civilizations cannot raise Militia.

*Vanilla, Gods & Kings, Brave New World

Changing Default Settings
You can easily change basic settings by editing Militia_UserSettings.lua, located the Militia Mod folder, which is in your Civ MODS folder. Open the lua file with any text editor (e.g. WordPad), make desired changes and then save and close the file.

Options include:
* Disable Militia for human players
* Allow unhappy Empires to raise Militia
* Force Milita to spawn near each city (not just the capital)
* Allow Minors to raise militia.
* Change the allowable Milita Eras (by default, Militia can be raised in any era).

v.14 is backwards compatible with v.13.

Does this include modern unit skins? Also, adding a unique image for the militia would be nice.

I really love this mod. I have no idea how to change anything though. I opened the Lua folder and a bunch of goblegook popped up. I understand xml files but I cant figure out Lua for the life of me.

Is there a way to make it so that only City States can raise a Militia? I have a handful of mods installed and the city states struggle to last into the late game. And this mod seems like a perfect fix for that, but I don't want it on the other Civs.
