General Pants' Political Party Proliferation

by General Pants

This mod includes 32 additional political parties, for a total of 40... try building a consensus now! These parties have been carefully balanced using a detailed comparison of abilities costs and AI preference. Many have asymmetric "penalties" to balance out their bonuses; you lose more if you lose power than you got for being in power. Among the parties you will find some "singleton" (one-bonus), and some "dilettante" (three- or four-bonus) parties, as well as more conventional ones. All have original logos and almost-clever flavor text. A bonus table comparing all parties, and the bonuses for all races, is included!

V1.1: fixed some typos found by Lukas Dettlinger.

For anyone who is wondering, all 40 parties appear in the game, and participate in elections! A slider appears in the relevant dialogues, so you can scroll through them.

Unzip in your favorite mod folder.

I love the various parties, some of which are fascinatingly exotic. Your mods are always of such quality, General Pants. Perhaps if the Library is ever fixed, we can see more of your work someday.

This was a highly entertaining mod and makes the game more believable. Also, kudos to the icon work. But really, where are the Neo-Nazis? We need their +30% soldiering +20 Espionage! XD

Does this work in DA? I haven't been able to make it work in anything but Dread Lords.

There should be a folder GalCiv2/DarkAvatar/Mods, which should be populated initially by a folder GalCiv2/DarkAvatar/Mods/default. You can extract the mod into that folder, then activate it from the options screen in-game (you have to restart after doing this).

Where IS the mod folder for DA, or do u designate it yourself?

Excellent mod here. I like the bonuses provided by the various parties and it permits me to create custom races with their own party with great advantages or disadvantages over one another. Thanks for this mod ^_^

Two typos now fixed...

Lukas Dettlinger pointed out a typo... it is so minor I hesitate to post an update until more errors show up (and they will):

Please open mod/Data/PoliticalParties/PantsPoliticalParties.xml with a text editor (NOT MS-Word!), search on "believe that a society", and re-type the following apostrophe (')... in its current form, it will produce a typo in the game. Does not affect playability at all.
