Default Whats Ocenia???

When looking at Atlantis's description it said there was a special theme called Ocenia.Buy can't select it.

What is Ocenia and how do I use it?

Go to "special themes" or whatever during the creation. It will automatically list all the themes that a nation can use. All themes under that list are determined by scales, and unless you use that feature you will only see the option to select it if you have the pre-req scales.

Oceania is different, though.

It's actually a mod. Install the mod and you get Oceania instead of base Atlantis. It's on Illwinter's Mods page.

Kind of like underwater Pangaia. Water and Nature magic, which isn't a real useful combination. At least I couldn't get very far with it.

Unzip it into the mods directory.

Both the .dm and the Oceania folder will be in dominions2/mods

You need a "mods" folder in the folder you installed Dominions2 into, e.g.:

dominions\mods\ <= put dm file here, unzip the folders in the zip file here as well:

dominions\mods\oceania <= the tga files should umzip here
dominions\mods\oceania\oceandata\ <= and here

If your unzip-programm can't unzip complete folders, I would suggest using 7-zip (www.7-zip.org). It's free, it's opensource and it comes with the native .7z-format that is up to 50% more efficient than .zip. And there's a Linux version, but that's command line only atm. ...

edit: .. gnnn.. too slow, 2nd winner only ...

Ya I knew there was a Mod called Oceania, but since he said the above quote, I thought the mod might be a remake of a theme.
