Looking to hire a modder to edit my custom civ

Hi everyone,

Last month i started creating my own custom civ, hiring a genie expert to make everything i need. However, genie is still limited in the stuff it can and cannot do, for example, giving custom icons and effects.

For my current civ project, i need someone who is able to insert custom icons for several unique technologies i created. I would of course pay via paypal for your time and work.

Heres a complete description of the civ (and stuff thats already done by my friend whos modding via genie):

i need someone to add additional icons for all the new researchable technologies, thus have a few ideas to add to my custom civ aswell, like giving jadwiga several new abilities (area heal - YouTube)

let me know if you have any questions, also feel free to add me on discord if interested in helping me out: tyformoneyy#4143

There is a modding topic on how to add icons you should show that to your friend.

Currently its not possible to add a new civi you can only replace a ingame civi.

I can’t help, but I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed reading this post! Particular highlights include this:

and this:

Please post this as a serious civ proposal in the Discussion section of the forum. I would love to see the reaction. For the civ name, I suggest either a Crusader state, minor European ###### or a native American civilisation from the wrong time period. Even better if you can somehow combine all three.

EDIT: the censored word is a synonym for Dukedom.

to have custom icons you need a separate UI mod, currently no way around it. hopefully they’ll support stuff in near future

Hi there,

thanks for the reply, i forwarded that info towards my friend. if the custom research icons can be added via genie editor, he should be able to do it.

i also saw your vids on youtube and recall asking you yesterday if you can do custom mods for me. kinda funny finding you here one day later :smiley: i really liked the idea of having area heal, reviving dead units, and having the priest do a thunder attack to insta kill another unit. for my civ, i would have them as “abilities” for the jadwiga starting unit. im no modder and therefore have no idea how long its gonna take to add those features manually into another civ, but would still like to know if youre free sometime and can possibly do it. Also theres no rush, since the current civ isnt completly done and probably gonna take another 1-2 weeks.

thanks! :heart:

im planning to post this civ in the discussion section once its fully done, so people have a direct link to download and test it for themselves. also this civ is just part of another 40 (already finished) other custom civilisations

you can make use of them, just open a second genie editor window and copy it over. most of them aren’t really “ability” as they are combined of multiple thing to work together. take the areal heal for example, though it is straight forward (in design), it is made up of 10-20 different units and technologies and effects depending on how many classes you heal, and there are limitation as well.

it is really hard to explain. if the end goal is just to have them work in a mod, I recommend just copy it over.

if you run into issue just shoot me a DM and I can reply
