Description
Welcome! Colonialist Legacies is a modding endeavour started by TPangolin and Neirai, but has since grown into a community of dozens of modders striving towards producing high-quality custom Civilization that explore themes, perspectives and cultures impacted by colonialism.

Starting from relatively humble beginnings, Colonialist Legacies released their first mod in January of 2014 - the Australian Civilization, lead by Henry Parkes. Since then, many Civilizations have been completed, with some being featured on sites such as PC Gamer and Kotaku. Colonialist Legacies mods have become undoubtedly popular on the Steam Workshop, and influential in the dev cycle of Civilization VI and none of this would be possible without the active participation from our amazing community!

Colonialist Legacies aims to simultaneously educate players about cultures they haven't been exposed to, alongside ensuring that each new custom Civilization has interesting, unique, and dynamic attributes that aims to make the game as fun as possible.

Any feedback is encouraged and also appreciated!

We wish to acknowledge the connection that Indigenous peoples have to the land, and our respect to elders past, present and emerging. We would additionally like to advise our work may contain images and depictions of deceased persons.

Does this work fully and easily with ynaemp?

@Dead--Martyr

Yes. @Vicevirtuoso , @JFD , @Uighur_Caesar , @Leugi ,and @Chrisy15 are deserted to Civ VI (I must note as well that Chrisy15 blocked me out from his mod).

The fate of other modders are vary. @MooncatXVI, whom he is supposed to make the The Empire civ led by Karl Franz but he is hardly busy making Valkyria civs and is taking too long, got overtaken by other things. Erikmeister is no longer modding Civ V anymore; He is gone too busy playing FPS and JRPG games. ChampiKhan is supposed to make all of the Cold war mods (particularly Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria), but to no avail as well since he failed to make them on time. Monty, formerly TarcisioCM, is no longer in Civ V. And The Our World group, led by SupraWaffle, ceased to exist and is already gone as well.

Did they abandon it for Civ VI? Or did they just get overtaken by other things in their lives?


I've been messing around with the sdk (100% novice, can't even get changing text to work without crashing) after I found a project called MPPatch that makes mods work on multiplayer. Was thinking about maybe making a civilization--even as amatuer as it would be--before I go join the Marines. I feel really sad that this project is done, this is probably the most impressive endeavor I've seen in ages

@Dead--Martyr

I know... Colonialist Legacies is dead. @TPangolin and all others are gone as well, unable to continue modding in Civ V. Also, Chrisy15 took too long to make the Ho Chi Minh mod as well, thus, he failed.

All of the modders are gone from Civ V, thus, all is quiet in the Civ V Steam Workshop. A dreadful shame to see modders deserted. I hope Kobazco and others would take over from this. I hope otherwise Typhlomence is still in Civ V as well for Diplo templates...
Dead--Martyr May 12, 2018 @ 11:40am 
So I'm guessing this whole project is dead? No more updates or new civs? A shame

Chrisy15 is a deserter; Failed to make a Ho Chi Minh mod

CivFanatics is dead

@Neirai the Forgiven

I did what I have to wait for the mods in Civ V to come out. The only worst displeasure is that Chrisy15 had failed to develop the Ho Chi Minh mod on time, along with Uighur_Caesar that failed also to develop the Deng Xiaoping mod since the Our World project is already gone. I'm very displeased for this long delay for too long, thus, they called themselves the modders as they're gone to Civ VI. I'm threatened to quit Civ V if none of the mods are released on time.

Civ V modding in CivFanatics is dead. :steamsad:

Rumors of our demise are.... somewhat accurate. But rumors of "no Salish" have just been proved unfounded! :D
nicovallejos Sep 9, 2017 @ 7:24am 
CL thread in Civ V CivFanatics is of no further use anymore. The mod author of it is already gone, having lost all of interest in Civ V modding, along with the others. They are all gone to Civ VI. There is nothing of further use anymore.

Colonialist Legacies is dead.
