what if CIV was in DF?

that's the spark so to speak that lead to the creation of this thing. it currently features five eras (Ren, Classical, Medieval, Ancient, and Prehistoric), with 9 civs, Americans and Englishmen, Greeks and Romans, Byzantines, Babylonians, Sumerians and Aztecs, and Native Americans, respectively, all of them writing in their tongues. it currently features muskets, stone weaponry, new armor and weapon types for each entity (civ and era), and more. this will be released into public alpha when the greek language is mostly complete.

So how do you know what tech level your civilization is at? How does tech work in this mod?

The scouts have been fighting a giant capuchin for the past month now. They still haven't killed it.

The Sentries are still fighting the capuchin. For two monthes they have done nothing but punch this monkey.

that's determined per entity. the era is the entity unless they use certain weapons, speak a different language, etc.

This undergoing a remake with real-life civs. The working title for it is Real World Mod: Civ. Currently, Elves now have basic metals, Kobolds are now a real civ, and features the following civs:

Western, Eastern, and Northern Europe spread amongst Dwarves and Humans (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, the Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Slovakia, Romania, Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Belarus, for Dwarves, the United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland,  France, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Asturia, Belgium, and Andorra for Humans)     
The Middle East for Elves (Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Isreal, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Yemen, Oman, and the UAE)
Mesoamerica for Goblins (the Aztecs, Mayans, Totanacs, Zaptocs, Trasncans, and Huastecs)
East Africa for Kobolds (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Somalia, Burundi, South Sudan, Madagascar, Mozambique, Eritrea, Zambia, Malawi, Djibouti, the Mauritius, Seychelles, Zimbabwe, and the Comoros)

Besides that, there's no change from Vanilla in regards to ethics, weapons, etc.

The next revision will add Central Europe, Central Asia, Pre-columbian South America, and West Africa.

Why can't the Real-Life civs just all be human?

Variety mostly. It's also just easier and I don't have to do a lot of copy-pasting.
