Earlier today, I uploaded my newest mod for Sid Meier's Civilization V onto the Steam Workshop.
This new mod is titled "Fat Man and Little Boy". The effects of the mod are as follows:
Completing the Manhattan Project now grants a free Atomic Bomb unit in the city that built the project. The unit will be received regardless of whether the player has access to Uranium (usually required to build an Atomic Bomb). In addition, the first player to complete the Manhattan Project will be given two free Atomic Bombs, which are appropriately named "Fat Man" and "Little Boy".
By being the first to complete the Manhattan Project, players will be rewarded with "Fat Man" and "Little Boy" Atomic Bomb units.
The intent of this mod is two-fold
- Provide some additional historical flavor to the game.
- Rebalance the Manhattan Project so that there is some value to building it, even if the player does not have convenient access to Uranium.
The mod should be compatible with both the vanilla Civilization V game, and the Gods & Kings expansion; although, if you have problems downloading or running the mod in either version, please let me know.
This mod is currently in a "Beta testing" phase, and may still contain bugs. If you wish to test the mod, you can simply start a new game in the Atomic era (for G&K expansion) or the Modern Era (for base game), research Atomic Theory, and then build the Manhattan Project. If you come across any problems, or have suggestions for changes/improvements, feel free to comment below.
Downloading the Mod
To download the mod, open the Steam Workshop through the "Get Mods" button in the Civilization V in-game Mod menu.
