You haven't given me enough information to answer that. The ways I know to mod themes are:

1) Remove all of them from a nation.

or

2) Mod the things that a theme offers - mainly change all the units it includes, so you can still pick it, but the units it includes are now all different.

No, I think I don't understand.
I have made some mods to Caelum - I'd like it to be a theme with a point cost such as miasma is for Ctis.

Is there a way to make a mod a "theme". Is there a way to change a point cost?

Thanks...

No. You cannot create, add, or otherwise modify the "Theme" itself, although you can modify units of an existing theme.

Right. So, for example, you could change the units that Return of the Raptors has, that default Caelum does not have, but that's about all you can do with the current mod commands, unless you are willing to have side-effects on other themes or nations.

The only way to choose the point cost for the theme is I think to try to completely take over some other nation's theme that has the point cost you want, but that's probably not going to be exactly what you want, either.
