Ugh well my copy of Dominions 4 is useless. Dang switching how updates happens.

I'll just have to get it from steam when it goes on a super fantastical sale.

Nation Gen created Snail Cav ; )

(and they are actually pretty kickass, but only have 6 movement, obviously)
That is one slow-ass lance charge they've got going there, but they otherwise look pretty awesome.

My first thought was that he picked it up at Desura, just as I did, but if that were the case, he should have been able to activate it on Steam with his Desura key before the site went down, back when Desura initiated bankruptcy proceedings and the notifications went out.

EDIT: I've been rummaging around with that assumption in mind for various reasons.  You should be able to retrieve the key from here, but it's been so long since I logged in that I forgot which e-mail address I used and my password and thus accidentally locked myself out.  I'm waiting for the password reset, but I don't even know if that aspect of their system is working any more.  Also, if it was purchased at GamersGate, the key there can also be used to activate it on Steam.  I'd recommend it just as a precautionary measure, even if you don't actually play it over Steam, for precisely the reason illustrated by Desura's downfall.

Wasn't the Steam activation key just your game key? [Which is in the application directory as a plaintext file.]

Also, Culise, the zombie Desura (it's back up, AGAIN?!?!?) hasn't been able to send emails for... a year now? However long it's been, that functionality is definitely dead.

Email illwinter, they're generally good about this. But yes, your game key should be in a plantext among your files.It's called Dom4key and it's in the same directory as your game. It's plaintext as mentioned so open it up with notepad. You may wish to include this in your email to illwinter.

Every copy of Dominions should have a Steam-viable key. It only wouldn't if you got it from some disreputable third-party site which was essentially selling pirated copies. It's actually necessary that everybody have one, because the key is a major part of multiplayer cheat detection.

Ehh it is a Gamer's gate thing...

I'd rather have it on steam at this point honestly.

If you activate the key on Steam, you should have it on Steam just the same as if you bought it from them in the first place.

It definitely should work. Will be a code of some sort over on the right, if my memory's still working. I actually got my copy of D4 from that lot, and activated it on steam at a later point (After I got somewhat annoyed with how long it was taking the GG version to update, iirc.). Went through just fine.

https://github.com/elmokki/nationgen

Download, run nationgen.jar. When you have generated a mod that you want to use you have to move it to the game's mod folder.

More specifically: https://github.com/elmokki/nationgen/releases

The "official thread" these days: http://z7.invisionfree.com/Dom3mods/index.php?showtopic=1619

Dev work on it is slow right now because Elmokki is in the academic year, and I'm suffering a lack of motivation, but it creeps along. If I can be arsed, there'll probably be a release with either Mictlan-esque or Kailasa-esque humans next month (among other things). Maybe both, but also maybe neither.

My personal design ethos is "can it be based on something already in Dominions (or the Dominionsier bits of CoE)? If so, go for it, as ridiculously as possible, and preferably with hoburgs" - hence why we have pygmies riding swans, Sidhe riding giant swans, hoburgbred sailing about in black swan chariots... All it would take would be for KO to make one skunk sprite, and it'd be on...
