Regarding civ's of different races
« on: July 11, 2010, 11:28:11 am »

Hi, I'm new to the forum but not to the game blah blah yada yada NOW FOR THE QUESTION

Over time, I've seen many references on this very forum to various mods enabling you to create a civilization or fortress out of a race other than dwarves. Is this true, or have I misheard? Vanilla is fun, but it would be ridiculously fun to play as other races outside of adventure mode. So far all of the mods I've seen just add new content to the game like creatures, materials, some extended functionality etc. but I have not been able to locate a mod that allows a player to create a civilization using a race other than dwarves.

Thanks in advance!

There are tons of mods allowing for different playable races, and with a few additions to the raws any race can be playable (although some wimps might call them "Unplayable"  :'( )

As a quick example/index, MixMod 31.09.04 is an insane insanely awesome combination of most of the currently maintained mods in the mod forum.

It lists races as:
Playable civs:

And like I said, you could mod those other races into being playable.  The individual mods things come from are listed in the linked thread.

And honestly, the mods to make vanilla humans or elves playable are fairly minor.  You see more variety playing with the Dwarves in Deon's Genesis Mod.  If you want different humans, try the !!Wizards!!

Oh my gosh, thank you! What a quick answer. I'll definitely check out MixMod.

Also I can't imagine that any race would be "unplayable". You might be guaranteed lots and lots of fun, for sure. But still, playable.

GOOMBAS? YOU CAN PLAY AS FREAKING GOOMBAS?

That doesn't even make sense!

You hop on another goomba to squish him down, tilt your weight to aim him the right way, then hop off. BAM! Spring goomba tackle attack.

Not to mention jumping on a koopa shell to get it started.
