Realism: Invictus is the Beyond the Sword version of the Civilization 4 mod that was formerly known “Total Realism” when it was being developed for Warlords expansion pack of Civilization 4. Our mod has been with Civ since the earliest days; it was, back when it was called just “Realism”, among the first comprehensive modpacks seeking to rebalance the game. For many years now, the mod continues its life and its evolution.

For detailed statistics on what the mod adds, please check the features section.

  • Crusades scenario, Constantinople
  • Crusades scenario, Acre
  • World Map scenario, Industrial era comes to Egypt
  • World Map scenario, Israel's colony in California

I think this mod is dead, no responses from devs here or on their forums.

And good luck reporting a bug or asking for help.

Haha mod was JUST released... plus they had a version that was updated everyday through an external application that ran the alpha and beta versions. Clearly you have not been following this at all.

Is there a way to rotate the Cruisades scenario so that up is north?! It is very disconcerting to have the entire thing rotated 90 degrees!

Also - can anyone play the Earth 1000AD scenario? Civ4 just crashes on me if I select that & try to launch

1) Nope, I know no way to make such a change. Anyway, it is very accurate as far as the map is concerned (

2) You can't play stock Civ 4 scenarios with this (or any other major) mod.
