  • Civilization Series Favourite Scifi/Fantasy (incl Babylon 5) TC Scenarios & Mods Hunt

    Hey guys

    I’m on the Hunt for big Civilization game series total conversion mods & scenarios with a particular focus on Civ2 & Civ3 (but am now expanding to Civ4, 5, 6 & spinoffs) relating to a whole bunch of my favourite fantasy & scifi movie/TV/gaming franchises (including Babylon 5!). Been posting in a few different Civ forums and getting great feedback, plus whenever someone has told me about an awesome scenario that’s disappeared over the years I’ve managed to track it down and bring it back from the dead to CivFanatics/ModDB/InternetArchive hosting, so helping me has helped the community. Hell in some rare cases I’ve even filled a gap by making the scenario myself haha!

    Anyway I figured it was finally time to hit some of the other communities out there for help too (since fans of Civ and these franchises are everywhere haha). Many have already been found so make sure you check my list in the link below BEFORE making suggestions to save yourself time & effort lol!

    https://forums.civfanatics.com/threa...e-homm.657805/

    At this stage I’m looking for Civ scenarios relating to...

    - Mars / Lunar Colonization
    - Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (& other alien world colonization)
    - Command & Conquer / Red Alert
    - Dune / Arrakis
    - Master of Magic
    - Sid Meier's Colonization
    - Master of Orion
    - Heroes of Might & Magic
    - Babylon 5
    - Star Trek
    - Star Wars
    - Stargate
    - Apocalypse (After WW3 / Fallout / Mad Max / Judge Dredd / Doom / Terminator / Zombies)
    - Lord of the Rings
    - Game of Thrones
    - The Elder Scrolls
    - Warcraft / Starcraft
    - Final Fantasy
    - Civilization Crossover Mods (Make a Civ game look like another Civ game)


    If you're unable to help then that's fine, as maybe my list will still help you find something cool!

    No Blake, No!!!!! I don't need the distraction. I have no knowledge of these games and I don't want to know. I take things too far. When the history of my life is recorded and announced to the world it will be revealed that I spent at least ten years of my life in Redeeming Red Deads while Falling Out with Elder Scrolls. (I hope that joke lands.) I know those are unrelated games, but I also know the games you speak of would completely engulf my existence. LOL

    (Sorry I can't be of any help, again.)

      hahaha yeah big games of Fallout 3, NV, 4 and Elder Scrolls 4 & 5 are still on my never ending to do list lol. Considering I blew like 5 years exploring every inch of Morrowind I'll no doubt be terrible with them.

      Kind of sad to think that I'd be playing those games right now if I hadn't of rediscovered my Civilization addiction haha.

        i'm playing (and streaming on twitch) rise of the tomb riader. it's the secon game wiht story by Rhiannah pratchett and unlike the first one i'm exploring every tomb i can and trying to examine every nook and cranny.
        When i got the mass effect trilogy on ps3 i spent the first play through of game 1 doing every single side mission i could, then , when i got tht efinal bad guy i was too weak to ake him out, second run thoruhg i upgraded all weapons and aroumd, picked a soldier class and took hin out in 2 shots..
        "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

          SCORE!! I found a Babylon 5 Civ2 mod!! I friggin knew there was one out there but just couldn't find it anywhere until now!

          Anyway big update as I widened my search to get help from more communities out there and had some AWESOME responses from people so many thanks to everyone who's contacted me publicly and privately!

            Hey guys,

            Big update as it's been a while! Found another Babylon 5 scenario for Civ2 but sadly it's download was dead with no archive backup so I'll keep looking, got some leads on some others too! Anyway I've been busy doing lots of searching and tracking down long lost mods & scenarios to rescue and upload. I've also added some new search categories of interest to me and made some big changes to existing ones...

            - Merged C&C and Red Alert together to save space.
            - Merged Doom with Fallout & Mad Max under a new main Apocalypse category to save space & also added new Terminator, Judge Dredd, Zombies, & After WW3 to the Apocalypse category too.
            - Added a new Starcraft category and combined it with the existing Warcraft one to save space
            - Added a new Lunar/Moon category to the existing Mars Colonization one.
            - Added a new Final Fantasy category
            - Added a new Civ Crossover category (Mods that make a Civ game look like another Civ game) as I've been finding some good stuff for these and wonder if there's more out there!

            Regarding that rescue work keeping me busy I recently started a huge new scenario catalog & rescue project creating proper download pages at CivFanatics (even rescuing lost scenarios that are not part of this search cause I'm nice like that lol), as well as extra scenario download mirror pages on ModDB and Internet Archive Library to ensure they don't get lost again as both those sites are long living & offer free hosting. At the moment I'm setting up Civ2 scenario libraries on these other sites but I look forward to setting up these library file mirrors for other Civ game scenarios in the future. Uploading to these sites is not hard (I've written guides over in my CivFanatics project thread) so hopefully others in the Civ community eventually follow my example and add to all these collections in the future to ensure all these great old pieces of work live on!

              WOW BLAKE!!!!!! Maximum effort. Still can't decide if it is a good or bad thing that I don't understand any of these updates. On the one hand I find the concept terribly interesting. ON the other hand I don't have enough time to spend on the hobbies I already have let alone pick up a new and clearly complicated one in despite of the rich rewards I might reap.

              (BUT I do understand why you keep making these updates and I greatly appreciate it. Keep up the good work.)

                I sometimes wish I were a gamer. My sister loves all sorts of games but I'm afraid I 'imprinted' on reading so young that I never got it. But they do look so cool...

                  Jan, I have a suggestion for you! Not B5 mod related, but try Firewatch if your system can run it. It's more of a narrative experience, you don't necessarily need any gaming 'skills' to play it. Cool story, lovely visuals and won't take too much of your time.

                  I also feel like the old school point and click adventure games are a fun way in, things like 'Curse of Monkey Island', 'Day of the Tentacle', etc. e.g. I really enjoyed some of the more modern offerings, that are again more of a narrative experience with less 'moon logic' puzzles. Oxenfree was really fun and atmospheric and you could replay for different endings. Likewise, Night in the Woods was also really cute.
                  Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

                  Kosh: Good!

                    Could journey back to the 80s and text adventure games. Some of those games are now considered Abandonware and can be played with an emulator. Although if memory serves, the BBC has a graphical version of the Hitchhiker's Guide game on their website. I heard Douglas Adams had a another game called "Bureaucracy" where the objective is to get your bank to recognize your new (correct) address. Which is still timely, all things being what they are.
