What is in this Mod?

Four new civilizations with which to conquer the world.

Scythians

A nomadic horse-based civilization who can build their buildings anywhere on the map.

Thebans

A tough Greek civ with excellent Hoplite soldiers and strong buildings.

Xiongnu

Another nomadic horse lord civilization who can build their buildings anywhere.

Zapotecs

A Mesoamerican civ with beautiful architecture and fast infantry and fearsome priests.


Along with a few other tweaks and surprises for some other civs, specifically adding the Stoa as a buildable structure for the Athenians, Spartans, and Macedonians.

These new civilizations and changes are completely compatible with the base game and work very well alongside the existing vanilla civs. As long as the other players have this mod installed, it should be playable online in multiplayer.

Possible Future Civilizations

As things progress, we may add more new civs. Possible entries:

Germans (Suebians)

Thracians

Mayas (Preclassical)

Illyrians

Lusitanians

Yayoi Japanese

When I tried to use the Huns to fight the Han Dynasty on the map of the Yangtze River. Soon I got into trouble, I found out that I didn't have a dock building...

I've been asked by StanleySweet to improve and update this mod for Alpha 26 so it can be added to mod.io again. So far the results are very promising!

Civs in the upcoming release:

Scythians
Thebans
Xiongnu
Zapotecs

With a few small surprises for some of the other vanilla civs.

Possible other civs for this mod in the future:

Thracians
Lusitanians
Mayas

We will see how these other civ mods progress into the future, but the Scythians, Thebans, Xiongnu, Zapotecs are a lock. :)

Hi, really enjoying this mod, and I love the new concepts specially the Zapotecs and the Xiongnu. Nice implementation of nomadism. However I'm finding the Xiongnu too badly nerfed to be playable, so I tried editing the cost and stats of the women citizens, but afterward the mod wouln't load. The game sees it, but when I start a game none of the Terra Magna civilizations are available. Help please?

What do you think about the Xiongnu and Scythians now?

Great Mod! Thanks for make it, 0AD is impresive, but i miss civs like this in the game. Is this proyect abandoned? or we can wait for more updates and content?

The Xiongnu should be stronger, they're always the easiest to beat in the game since they have low armor, no defensive structures, and cavalry archers with low health, low damage, and no guarantee of a hit.

Well as mentioned in the changelog and in forums Zapotecs and Xiongnu are not finished and in progress, hopefully, this development cycle our artists will have bit more time.

Ok first try to go to wfg.forums, where we can help you Wildfiregames.com then to your message post logs (system.info, crashlog, mainlog and so on but do not enter 0ad, because when you do the logs get deleted you actually need to go there straight after the crash and errors) you will find them here Trac.wildfiregames.com .
