"A compilation of 'Great Works of Mod' from Civ V community has brought to you the fiercest scenario ever made yet, an era when ideological competition for the New World Order has been set. What path shall you lead them through, a world where Liberalism, Fascism or Communism prevails? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Noel's Earth 1939 is a stand alone mod that already compiles all necessary contents under a single folder. You will be playing on an accurate Huge Earth map (128x80) with some modified based rules.

This is really well done. I've played this a lot.

This is by far the greatest mod I have ever played with. So comprehensive and good in details.

A single mod for the Spetsnaz troops would be badass ngl.

My game has crashed on turn 12-13, just wondering if there is anything I can do to fix it. I've never had this issue before

Hello! Help me to understand. Why does the game begin in 1980? Scenario 1939 begins in 1980, and script 1940 begins in 1981. How to fix this? Help.

Does anyone know if I would be able to play multiplayer with this mod?

Just one suggestion/complaint. Take Itinerant Preachers away from Protestantism. The way IP exponentially stacks pressure from the more cities being in range makes it insanely OP, making Protestantism absolutely dominate with so many cities in the game. Hard to use religion at all if you're any other civ but US.

@Punished Ross The likely reason why they are still alive is because they still have a worker alive. This is usually the reason for me at least.

@Sowjet unless it is a capital city you could just nuke it, also pretty sure the people living on those useless islands would be pretty offended :P so just nuke them instead XD
