Civ5 Ruleset (Willing to Pay $200 for)

Postby volkfried » Wed Mar 15, 2017 1:08 am

I will pay someone $200 to create a civ5 rule set. This includes a system for culture, religious, and diplomatic victories. It also includes civ5 wonders and their affects, and civ5 combat, and civ5 trade... etc. Basically, I want to play civ5 without using proprietary software. I'm willing to negotiate on details. I understand that this isn't just making a new rule-set, but involves adding to what is currently possible with the game engine.

I'll provide $50 just for a detailed road map of what all needs to be done to get there, and how it can be done (eg, new options for rulesets that are needed for the creation of the civ5 ruleset). The $50 is also so you know I'm not bluffing. I play this game a lot.

After the roadmap is made, I'm willing to break up the money over the different sections of the list, so that multiple people can work on it.

You asked for not trivial task. And your description isn't good. What about Civ5 mod? It should works in freeciv?

If you are serious, you should organize collection on kickstarter or something like that and hire developers for a long time. I think one developer is too small group to create game such as Civilization V. Minimum for half of year period should be five full-hired developers, I suppose. You should think how organize and advertise collecting of money. Why you don't pay for Civilization VI or other version? You should describe the reason.

Sorry. Basically, I want the game engine modified in a way where it is possible to create a Civ5 ruleset. Currently, the limitations of the game prevent the creation of such a ruleset. The needed options simply do not exist. After the game engine is modified to allow for the creation of a civ5 ruleset, I want that to be made, so that I can play it.

My making a kickstarter without a plan laid out, and without developers ready to take the money, doesn't really make sense unfortunately. A ground plan of all of the changes that need to be made to the game to allow for the ruleset to be created needs to be made first. Then a kickstarter becomes an option.

I've never played Civ6, so I don't know if it's any good. Either way, the changes needed (as far as I know) to allow for a Civ5 ruleset would also allow for a Civ6 ruleset.

I'm more than willing to brainstorm here with you guys if you'd like, on all of the changes that would be needed. I think that would be a productive way of getting started.

Hello,

Those may be a good starting point.

If I were you, I would try to offer some other motivator than below cent/hour wage.
