Great Believers

MOD Desc
This mod adds a new great person type and city project and great believers to the game. Great believers become available after you build a Holy site and a shrine. Great believer points accumulate from owning shrines and performing Holy Meditation projects (you can choose these the same way you select any city project).

There are eleven great believers including:

Classical Era

Diocletian: Pillaging an opponent’s improvements (farms, mines) yields 5 faith, pillaging a district gives 10

Andrew the Apostle: +1 faith for every boat over fish in all cities.

Sanghamitta: Creates 2 missionaries, and plants a Bodhi tree sapling in a city center (+3 faith)

Medieval Era

Xuanzang: Grants 2 envoys and creates the Relic of Xuanzang in a city center (+3 faith)

Wiborada: Provides the Golden Psalter of St. Gallen (a work of writing, +7 faith)

Khadija Bint Khuwaylid: Reduces the cost of shrines and temples by 50%

Augustine of Canterbury: Instantly creates an apostle (you need a religion for him to make an apostle)

Hilda of Whitby: Creates the Ammonite of St. Hilda in a city center (+7 faith)

Hasan-i Sabbah: Creates the Alamut Castle (+4 defense, +6 turns fortification) that culture bombs nearby tiles when placed

Ramanuja: Builds the Ranganathaswamy Temple, Srigangam in a city center (+2 faith), a wonder that allows this city to build districts and wonders on floodplains

Renaissance Era

Amakusa Shiro: Passive ability – faith equal to 25% of the strength of each enemy unit killed within two tiles. Activated – creates a warrior monk with 1 promotion (3 uses)

Each great believer has a Civilopedia entry and a picture that will appear in place of the generic game icon if you have the Real Great People mod by infixio installed (this mod is not required for the Great Believers mod to work). City center projects provide an icon (not a mesh). Many of the AIs love them, and they can get snapped up pretty fast.

We’re open to adding more great believers, (as long as they are respectful of others’ beliefs) if you have ideas for one.

Thanks to all who provided suggestions for improvements to the mod 🙂
Updated to increase the bonuses of several believers and add three new people

This is a real change.. If you think you’re just playing ‘new Civ V’ (or any previous version) think again. It a whole new learning curve, albeit in a familiar environment. Plan on 100 hours of learning! 🙂
I really enjoy the game and the new dimensions and directions of VI vs previous editions. They have genuinely tried to rethink some of the problems of earlier versions.. some in ways you may love and some no doubt in ways you wish were either different or ‘more like the old way’
I’ve spent a lot of enjoyable hours trying to learn and adapt to VI. I certainly don’t claim to have any real expertise, but it’s a fun trip.
It’s definitely worth the small investment if you catch one of the Steam sales.. I have a pretty basic version as I’m not much for scenerios and such.. After my time I’ve probably paid less than 2 cents an hour and I still have many more to come.
I’m sure the scenerios are good too.. they usually are for Civ.
I’d buy again or buy for a friend with confidence.

Oh… and the demo is fun.. if you have any doubts, d/l that and try it. Warning: The demo is slightly different from the actual release, but you’ll get the idea. I probably played the demo through 40 times or more just exploring the concepts.. It is limited to a fixed number of moves.. I think 60, but maybe less. At any rate it is sufficient to get the basic feel and still be fun

Insanely disgusting personal information collection and use of it!
(the game itself is ok, but rather meh)

Seriously? You think this is ok?

From the one game I have played till the end this is where I stand:
If you enjoyed Civ V you will enjoy Civ VI no questions asked.

Early game is a lot more enganing, just a quick word of warning, early game is a lot more focused on warring and conquering, in my game by about turn 40-50 my neighbour decided to come at me with about 10 chariots.
I defended against these chariots with about 3 archers and 2 spearmen, quick hint, don’t kill the AI’s units just damage them to the point they retreat and then chase them down, the AI won’t attack your city if the unit attacking will die.

Mid Game is a lot more about specalising and making sure all your shiny new districts are setup. With the new culture system there is a lot more ways to play the game. As long as you are not reaching for a optimum stradgey that will win every game then there is tons of replayability in this.

Late game has a lot less wars and in my game the AI wouldn’t stop denouncing me, from what I saw there is 5-6 different victory conditions that can be met and the victory I went for (Science) has a animated victory screen. One thing I didn’t like though when compared to Civ V is the lack of a map through history view or whatever it was called or atleast I didn’t spot it.

In the end it is a great game and deffiently worth playing should you be able to afford the hefty price tag.
