BigPharma's Tibetans [Early Modern] for Humankind

Released (updated ago). Ranked 780 of 1,986 with 550 (0 today) downloads

Published by [GIL]BigPharma (mod ID: 1522190)


This mod adds the Tibetans as a playable culture in the Early Modern Era with their own Legacy Trait, Emblematic Quarter, and Emblematic Unit. No other cultures are replaced, and the mod does not change anything outside of this specific culture.

For a more detailed write-up on the history and inspiration behind this culture, see here.

  • Military: Defensively-minded players, upon securing a source of Saltpetre, will have the Yul Dmag as intermediary gunner militia unit much stronger than medieval peasants to defend against aggression, provided you stay close to the walls to enjoy the protection of the blessing of the Ganden Phodrang. Enemies of the faith should beware the increased conviction with which they will fight. Having many Dzongs within a city will also allow more militia units to be mustered during a siege, making cities even more difficult to conquer if defended properly.
  • Religious: The Dzong is best built in highly mountainous areas where they will get a higher faith bonus than if they were surrounded by other districts. Spread your faith far and wide and watch your Influence soar as well.
  • Economic: Not to be underestimated, the Dzong is an enormous boon to Industry when placed adjacent to Faith-producing districts. Holy Sites, Wonders, and certain Emblematic Quarters have the potential to slingshot your production.

Why are you using the mughal art work ? Tibetan aren't indian, both their race and culture are more closely relate to East and Central Asia than south Asia. Tibetan are also Buddist, while this artwork depict the muslim.

I agree with you to Tibet as a separate civilization,but Tibet belongs to China, is an indispensable part of Chinese civilization since the beginning of time

I don't agree with you to Tibet as a separate civilization, because Tibet belongs to China, is an indispensable part of Chinese civilization since the beginning of time

That's an interesting opinion to have of a people whose language, political history, and cultural and religious influences are so radically different from Han Chinese civilization given their geographical proximity.
