The Ancients (Gods & Kings)

In 1 collection by lordnequam
Super-Civilizations (Gods & Kings)
3 items
A unique super-culture possessed of advanced technology and game-breaking advantages. Please note that this civ is NOT balanced against the others in the game. Only use it if you want serious advantages against the game. Alternately, set it as your foe for a truly daunting challenge.

New Leader: Play as Nammu, Queen Most High of the Ancients. Due to my lack of artistic ability, the part of Nammu will be played by Dido of Carthage.

New Trait: Eternal Memory - Build all Wonders in 1/20th the time. Additionally, the superior spirituality of the Ancients allows you to select an additional belief when founding a religion.

New Unit: Orichalcum Mech - The pinnacle of Ancient military technology, this replacement for the Giant Death Robot has all that unit's strengths and none of its weaknesses. Defend and assault cities without fear!

New Building: Akashic Record - The cornerstone of every Ancient city, this replacement for the Monument provides an early-game boost with a +3 to food, happiness, production, gold, faith, culture, and science.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is there a Vanilla version of this mod?
A: Yes! Due to popular demand, there is now a Vanilla version of The Ancients available.

Q: Is there a Brave New World version of this mod?
A: Yes! Due to popular demand, there is now a Brave New World version of The Ancients available.

Q: I have installed the mod and activated it correctly, but Nammu isn't showing up under the list of leaders.
A: I've done some digging around the internet and it seems like this is a not-unheard-of problem with Civ 5 custom civilization mods in general. First, ensure that you have the Gods & Kings expansion installed and activated. If that does not work, try to unsubscribe the mod, clear your cache, and then restart Steam and re-subscribe to the mod. If you've done it correctly, the game will re-download the mod. If this does not work, then you have my apologies, but I have been unable to find any other solutions to the problem.

This is my most favourite mod, because it makes the game so much easier. Thank you Lord Nequam. I really hoped that there was something compareable to this for CIV6, but unfortunately, there isn´t. :steamsad:
