Civilization V: A Screenshot LP

Recommended Posts

Hello! Welcome to my new screenshot let's play of Civilization 5! I have both the "Gods and Kings" and "Brave New World" expansions, which change the game in different ways.

That being said, why would I post it here if I didn't have the Touhous to play as?

Of the many, many mods for this (arguably) great game, I have the following...
 

  • Hakurei Shrine (leader: Reimu Hakurei, will be unable to play as due to major bugs that I have run into while trying to play as them -  they relate to the "promote a unit" screen, and these bugs don't seem to occur if the civ is an AI...)
  • Forest of Magic (leader: Marisa Kirisame)
  • Probability Space Hypervessel (leader: Yumemi Okazaki)
  • Mugenkan (leader: Yuuka Kazami)
  • Evil Spirits (leader: Mima)
  • Makai (leader: Shinki)
  • Human Village (leader: Keine)
  • Great Fairy Alliance (leader: Cirno)
  • Scarlet Mansion (leader: Remilia Scarlet)
  • Letty's Paradise (leader: Letty Whiterock)
  • The Netherworld (leader: Yuyuko Saigyouji)
  • Oni Clans (leader: Suika Ibuki)
  • Moriya Shrine (leader: Kanako)
  • Palace of Earth Spirits (leader: Utsuho Reiuji)
  • Tanuki (leader: Mamizou)
  • Kobito (leader: S. Sukuna)

 

Also, I will be using these mods, to improve the gameplay:

  • Only Mod Civs
  • Touhou Sound Effects
     

You can vote on which civ you want me to play as. I will be playing on Difficulty 3, and on Standard time.




Edit: Locking thread, making new one. Actually, let's go old-school and play the original Civ(1).

What? No nitori? :(
Lol

But that's awesome though. I'll go with the shrine then.

No Alice?  Too bad . . . (I definitely reccommend giving Aran's Alice mod a try at some point).

I would go with Makai, they have an interesting ability and the crystals are good improvement.  I like that it gives her a lot of viability in territory everyone else has to avoid.  Heck, with the crystals, you could actually rig the map in your favor . . . not that you have to, you just could.

I may be boring but going with moriya shrine seems thematic...

Closed, after about a week and a half of open voting.

I'm kinda taking after this poster on MotK, for what it's worth.

Moriya Shrine: 2
Makai: 1


Update: I have the pictures ready. I just need to stop being so lazy. 

First part should be coming soon. Hopefully. (Wisdom teeth removal is a pain, but it's worth it to keep my teeth straight.)

I guess it will be the power of faith then.  Looking forward to this, even if it takes you a while to get going.

Well... here goes nothing. I'm probably going to slip up somewhere in here, and it's my first attempt, too. Anyway, let's begin!

Civilization 5 ScreenShot LP: Moriya Shrine, Part I, Section I: Let's Play the Faith Game (Turns 1 to 17, 4000 BC - 3320 BC)

 

20180330145325_1.thumb.jpg.e1f5eea8f7a4c8e11ba8266c04cfa198.jpg 

Welcome to this LP. We are going to be playing as the Moriya Shrine, with standard game time and on Warlord Difficulty (3). We are up against 11 other civs, all set to random, so we'll know who they are when we meet them...

20180330145419_1.thumb.jpg.c01d91b831e9ef3c0a7819d04b34aaa2.jpg

As the Moriyas, we get bonus faith every time we discover a technology. We also get the Yamato Swordsman, which replaces the Swordsman, and provides a combat bonus proportional to our current amount of faith.

20180330145422_1.thumb.jpg.d471298aa6ba10619d549a94782d3943.jpg

Finally, we get the Taisha (replaces the Temple), which provides yet more additional faith, this time for every two citizens in a city that follows my religion. I'll delve deeper into the specific mechanics of Religion when we get there.20180330145457_1.thumb.jpg.9d00fdec5a50f5db5aa0df80a5d9c31a.jpg

And thusly, we begin. We build our first city where we start. Civilization 5 (Civ5 hereforth) usually does a good job putting the player's first settler in a good place.

20180330145547_1.thumb.jpg.96a2a138d7d0941aedcfa16a4f0eab00.jpg

We begin to build our first unit, a Warrior, in our new city, appropiately named Moriya Shrine. It'll take ten turns to build it, but we can afford that amount of time at the moment. With that finished, we begin to send our currently only unit, another Warrior, out for exploration.20180330145938_1.thumb.jpg.48500e662bb3706a68920b7cca06fd3b.jpg

By the end of our fifth turn, we've mapped out part of the coastline of where-ever this is. Bananas could be a pretty good resource to snag, we'll have to act on that once we can collect it.

20180330145958_1.thumb.jpg.8dc548532d8e4791abf618184280be2c.jpg
Ooh, goody hut! These tiles, referred to as "Ancient Ruins", can give you some bonuses. However, once they're gone, they're gone, so if the hut's a good bit away from your cities, make sure you grab it before someone else can. In the past, these goody huts could give you some pretty bad gifts, but it appears that the developers removed that sometime between 1991 and 2010.

20180330150247_1.thumb.jpg.5e45eaa4eff2ababbb91f66f5b371365.jpg

As we explore the Ancient Ruins, we discover some artifacts of previous culture. Culture is a way that you can win the game, given enough time. Like Religion, I'll go into the details of it when we get closer to that. But first, we have to get through Policies.

20180330150421_1.thumb.jpg.e6794232e8780bd715d8f127ea3af51a.jpg

Policies are bonuses that you select after you accumulate enough culture. I pick Tradition at first, mainly because I wasn't sure how I wanted to play this game, and because our empire was still only made up of one city.  I would later choose to play "the faith game", but I'll talk about that later.

20180330150529_1.thumb.jpg.8326a7abad74b941373c6730419f342c.jpg

Oh, here's our new Warrior. We choose to build a Shrine next, as by then I had chosen to play the previously mentioned "faith game".

20180330150548_1.thumb.jpg.afa7e3e0851f656d2432cbab2fa8e901.jpg

...Well, look who we've found. "Bar bar bar bar bar..." As you can see, we aren't strong enough to definitively win against this group, and so we go around it.

20180330150825_1.thumb.jpg.62b08e41bd7771994abb6bee391275af.jpg

The Tradition policies, while not what we wanted, do give some useful bonuses, like this one, which increases defense in cities with a unit fortified in them. I'll take that, thank you very much.20180330151004_1.thumb.jpg.8db785a4c6b4791ee9ddce622bb05784.jpg

Oh look, more barbarians, this time from the north. We send our warrior out to dispatch these.

20180330151035_1.thumb.jpg.2f675eab4ee8f1af12d2c70a25713564.jpg

Simulaneously, we discover Animal Husbandry, which allows us to obtain an additional source of food via Pastures. We still don't have any Workers, however, so I'll have to get on that.

(I had to break the post here due to file size limits on the forums, and I'll put the next post out when I find some more time to do so.)

That's a pretty nice start, two luxury resources right by your capital.

Personally, I always focus on culture in early game, so that I get as many bonuses out of the social policies as possible.

Yeah, I'm still around, just haven't had the time to make the second part of the first part of the SCLP. Then again I have found the time to develop my EU4 mod "Genso Universalis", so maybe I'm just lazy. Shame on me.

I sure took long enough. The early game is kinda monotonous, in my opinion.

Civilization 5 ScreenShot LP: Moriya Shrine, Part I, Section II: Meeting/Exploring (Turns 17 to 31, 3320 BC - 2760 BC)

20180330151123_1.thumb.jpg.0a71c4c78f26dae71a5810f2096184cb.jpg

As we explore further, we find more barbarians. Typical early game stuff. Our warrior moves off to the west.20180330151229_1.thumb.jpg.0dceda53613cf57c240c5dab8175c18d.jpg

Moriya Shrine grows and now has four citizens. Our shrine has also finished construction, and we will gain 1 faith point per turn now.20180330151505_1.thumb.jpg.a09d435e4b7e5d3efa007fb565a98510.jpg

Turn 24: Discovery of archery. For the most part, archers are probably one of your best early-game city defenders.20180330151515_1.thumb.jpg.54e3179a924a02d934d95b2e9e1ed802.jpg 

We meet a city-state. You can get resources (from being their ally), among other things. If you are the first to meet a city-state, you get a bonus of 30 gold, rather than the 15 shown here. Due to this, who-ever discovered them is likely nearby.20180330151534_1.thumb.jpg.28d3007d72de5776f2cf4cd4c5e6f235.jpg

That's rather close... fire away, Moriya! This is why we have two warriors (one in the city and one exploring), and I plan to get an archer now that we have Archery.20180330151655_1.thumb.jpg.f4ed51ee6cc36f0331db17b1abd8d2a7.jpg

The next turn, we can create a pantheon, which is a prerequisite to founding a religion. I don't remember what I picked while I'm typing this, but I think I picked Ancestor Worship, which gives more culture for shrines. I might not have, though, I'm not completely sure.20180330151846_1.thumb.jpg.b42e14e582caeee44a54e8f3de87ff6d.jpg 

We also get another social policy. I solidify "the faith game", selecting Piety.

20180330151943_1.thumb.jpg.43c55a4826bb4b64567bcf25d692cb64.jpg

Again, we meet another city state, with the same meanings as before.

20180330151951_1.thumb.jpg.5a505a0e306afe53aa1fa84052d34eef.jpg

After we attack this barbarian again and summarily dispose of him, we continue to explore...

20180330152109_1.thumb.jpg.b123b8ba561380113563d57f8f608ff1.jpg

...oh, hey Reimu. I don't have much to say here, due to the fact that we don't know where her capital (Hakurei Shrine) is. Once we find it (or we set up an embassy), the options will expand further. For now we'll just say goodbye and head on our way.

20180330152120_1.thumb.jpg.823db75a39c6fe97df12f14c704fcf74.jpg

Turn 30: Discovery of Mining. We should probably get a worker unit going. 

20180330152223_1.thumb.jpg.1f558752248d7cf61bd239b224592980.jpg

Now, by the end of turn 31, we've met two city states, another civilization, and we're doing better than before, I guess.

Well, if your neighbor is Reimu, then religious wars can be expected somewhere down the line.

Make sure to get Stonehenge before she does!

Welp. I have bad news to bring you. While trying to install another OS onto a USB drive, I mistakenly deleted the partition that holds my Windows 7 files, including my Moriya LP save. I am not sure if Steam backed it up to the Steam Cloud or not, and I may have to just start the LP over from scratch, unfortunately. I'll post again if I have further news to this.

Update - June 22nd, 2018...

Unfortunately, as I feared, the saves did not transfer to the Steam Cloud. Thusly I will have to start over from scratch. Oh well.

(Just reinstalled Civ5 the other day, and I really have kinda forgotten about this until now lol)
