Changeling Empire

In 1 collection by Harald B
Brony mods
35 items
Adds the Changeling Empire, led by Queen Chrysalis.

The Changelings both can and need to conquer a lot. Play peacefully for too long and you may starve from lack of love. City names are based on various broad categories of metamorphosing insects.

Trait: Love Sustains Us: The House of Love (alternate courthouse) is free, but double unhappiness from population. Two extra spies (except in Vanilla).
UU: Infiltrator; Replaces Warrior. Highly effective against cities, but not so much against other units.
UB: House of Love; Replaces Courthouse. Extra +5 global happiness.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and related names tm and (c) Hasbro, obviously. Empire icon by Metrukuta/Emkay-MLP. (Source[]) Peace Music remixed by MysteriousBrony, based on original by Daniel Ingram (source). War Music by Carbon Maestro (source). Loading screen text kindly provided by Lottanubs.

* Brave New World version also available. (This version will also work with BnW, but the BnW-specific version has special mechanics for it.)
* This version will work both with Vanilla and with G&K/BnW. The previous Vanilla version will be discontinued.
* Despite some balancing measures, this civ is probably on the overpowered side if played right. I don't apologize, but I might tweak a bit.
* Sorry for the huge filesize. Almost all of that is music, so not much I can do.
* Also available through CivFanatics[]

Okay. If there is workshop support for Civ VI, perhaps I could help with a peaceful version of this for it. Fully up to you.

Sorry, I'm not doing any more Civ V modding. I don't have the time these days, plus Civ VI is right around the corner.

Hello there. I was browsing for Civ 5 addons...and spotted this. Instantly my heart went aflutter upon seeing I can play as my most beloved MLP Character...until I didn't exactly fit how I viewed her. I was wondering if you could make a more....peaceful version of this? I...could happily provide details on how. I feel it would be an interesting twist on this, and provide players who don't view Chrysalis as imperialist a fun addon. I fully intend to reget Civ 5 soon, but I would love it if I could provide ideas and whatnot for it.

A good mod for Civilization V, Chrysalis is nice

Harald: Oh! Excellent. Makes a lot more sense now.

CookieSkoon: Appearing as monks is a cunning disguise. :) When you move an Infiltrator next to an enemy city, other units within two tiles of the infiltrator (though not units in the same tile, due to technical limitations) get +50% attack against that city. The Infiltrator also gives the same attack bonus a Great General gives.

I'm having an issue, I think. Instead of great generals I am getting infiltrators but they appear as monks and are entirely useless. They have no actions whatsoever and cannot enter enemy cities. Is this a glitch or am I missing the point of this unit?

My only complaint is that there is no unique skin for the infiltrator. Even if you just did a human skin for it it would be awesome, the warrior template on it is just so unfitting considering that their so weak against other units.
