I swear this never happens to me Mar 30, 2020 @ 12:57pm 
No offence since this is a great mod, but why are there so many newer mods on the workshop updating their UAs into more complex, less effective ones? The origional 5% boost in combat strength for each metal traded was a lot more simple and useful than the 1% in friendly territory. When the UA is too complicated and specialized it detracts from the personality of the civ. Is there anywhere I can find the old version of this mod?

Apologies for the trivial question, but how do you direct DL? "Press on the above infographic" doesn't allow me to DL anything. (I use Steam, but it's currently not DL MODs)

I see this is supposed to be compatible with Rise to Power, but it hasn't been updated for a long time. Is this compatible with the combined JFDLC?

Thank you for your informations. For the Shardana/Sherden theory you are right that there are various theories, there are also theories that say the we sardinians are for example, atlanteans, neo-hittites, caananites, hyksos, libyans, etruscans, basques, illirians, vandals, alans, tartessians, berbers (numidians), philistines, lydians, troyans or a mixture of these peoples.

Ofc, you being Sardinian, definitely holds some authority on the matter, but tbh I think changing the name now will only confuse people. I you want to change it yourself, you can do it in the DMS_Nuraghians_GameText.xml file inside the mod under the TXT_KEY_CIV_DMS_NURAGIC_SHORT_DESC tag. There you can also see that in-game, the civilization is called the "Nuraghic Empire".

Lastly, re the "shardana/sherden" name. Afaik there are several theories about this; recent findings are pointing more and more towards an identification of the Sherden as the indigenous Sardinian population. However, this is not unanimously agreed upon hence why I discarded that as an option.

@Bluewave256 Hi - thanks for your feedback. Originally I actually did call them "The Nuragics", but changed it due to several reasons. First of all, I've come across the term "Nuraghian" or "Nuragian" in several scholary texts, there used to describe the indigenous Sardinian population, which is the primary reason for the choice. These texts seem to refer to the culture of the indigenous population rather than the people itself as "Nuragic" or "Nuraghic". I do, however, agree that it could be argued that "The Nuragics" could have worked just fine as well - as is for example the case on wikipedia.
Secondly, when I released the civ (almost exactly three years ago), a bunch of other civs had just been released, which thematically fit with this civ. These were The Gauls, The Thracians, The Germans and The Iberians (maybe more, I can't recall). Calling this civ "The Nuraghians" seem to fit better with the naming scheme of those civs. At least that was what I thought at the time :).

I am sardinian, we do not call them "nuraghians", we call them "nuragics" or "shardana/sherden".

And I can't build an ipogeo nowhere.

No offense to Rob (R8XFT) but I have never liked that kind of 3D.

I can build the ipogeo on tiles without freshwater,
