Minecraft and Civilization Combine in CivilizationCraft Mod

The CivilizationCraft mod melds the world building of Minecraft with the empire aspects of the Civilization franchise.

The mod, a project that’s been in the works for two years, recently saw the release of its version 1.2. In turn, the mod is apparently being released to the world of open source development so that fans and other modders can further expand it beyond the efforts of its original creators.

The mod as it stands includes a long list of impressive features including “capitals, towns, culture trade goods, governments, technologies, units, world wonders war, diplomacy, espionage” and more, all of which plays out in a real-time multiplayer. This, of course, differs from the turn-based nature of the actual Civilization games and likewise adds a unique emphasis on teamwork.

“The idea is to grow your Civilization from your starting capitol town to more and more towns,” described an Imgur gallery showcasing the mod. “Of course, you can’t do that alone- you need friends and teammates to help build your infrastructure.”

Minecraft fans interested in taking CivilizationCraft for a spin can find the download for version 1.2 at the mod’s official web page.

Hey. My name is RemedialRob and I’m an Admin/Developer for CivilizationCraft at Obelisk Gaming (.net). We have a great dev team of talented coders and players that includes over 5 years combined experience playing the game. We’ve squashed a lot of bugs in the old code and we’re really excited about the changes we plan to make in the near future. If you want to learn about the game you can check out our wiki here: http://obeliskgaming.net/wiki/index.php/Civcraft You can come talk to us on our teamspeak channel here: obeliskgaming.net You can come check out our forums here: http://obeliskgaming.net/index.php?forums/ You can come and join the game at this minecraft server address here: obeliskgaming.net:25565 and lastly you can check out the dynmap for the server here: http://obeliskgaming.net:8888/ I run an admin Civ and if you catch me on (mostly evenings and late night west coast time) I’ll be happy to show you the ropes. We’ll have a new game starting around the beginning of August (by my estimation… someone is going to try and win soon I’m sure) and I’ll have you ready for your own civ by then for sure. Cheers.
