Default The Mod List

This thread is a rework of Sombre's original and magnificent mod list. Due to the forum change, the old mod list cannot be edited without a great deal of trouble because it exceeds the forum limit for characters per post. Updating the links cut down the length from 49,000 to 39,000, which is still 14,000 over the limit before adding any new content. So the new mod list sticky will function on the same basis as the Bug Shortlist and the Modding Wishes Shortlist. This thread will have the posts that list different mods and modding utilities and discussion of the mod list should happen in the old thread, which is perfectly suitable for that purpose.

All the links here will take the reader to the original thread(s) where the mod was posted and discussed. All links have been updated to the new forum format. As per the mandate of the original thread:

The original Mod List thread is here. Use it for discussion of the new mod list.

This first post will contain the table of contents for this thread and the following posts will contain the links to mods and other utilities.

Name: Single Age mod
Type: Crazy games
Author: Gandalf Parker
Desc: This places all of the early, mid, and late era nations into the early era. With this mod enabled you can play early Ulm against late Ulm. Or you can put all 77 nations into one game. Great for playing on a giant 1500 province map.
note:It also includes the empty slots which are named "filler" and their slot number.
note2:Will not work for starting a game on servers.

Name: Greater Gods
Type: Pretenders
Author: Zlefin
Decs: The purpose of this mod is to make gods feel more truly GODlike. It is not intended to improve balance, though weaker gods have been given more buffs than stronger ones.

Name: Mytheology (original)
Name: Mytheology v3.0
Type: Pretenders and spells
Author: Psientist
Desc: Adds a wide selection of new pretenders, spells and summonable units to the game.

Name: Nova Deus II
Type: Pretenders
Author: Zepath
Desc: New artwork and some new descriptions for 20 generic pretenders and 16 new pretenders for select nations. Also contains the Pythian Iconoclast mod adding a new priest commander to Pythium.

Name: Streamers and Standards (missing newest nations)
Type: Flag graphics
Author: Zepath
Desc: Replaces all the vanilla national flags with better looking and more detailed versions.

Name: Streamers and Standards, llamabeast version (all nations)
Type: Flag graphics
Author: Zepath, modifications and some content by llamabeast
Desc: Replaces all the vanilla national flags with better looking and more detailed versions.

Name: The High Guild
Type: Unit addon
Author: Twan
Desc: This mod adds two recruitable human mages for each nation of the middle era, one with (A,E,F,W) magic, one with (D,S,N,B). They have 2 x 100% random + 1 random 50% and 1 random 10% but cost far more than national mages of the same power (275gp) and are #noleader. The high guild mages have special capacities if the nation need some (amphibian for sea nations, swamp survival for C'tis) but are a little more expensive or restricted for those nations (the high guild mages of sea nations have water 1 instead of one of their picks).

Name: Worthy Heroes
Type: National Heroes
Author: Turin / quantum_mechani
Desc: The mod improves most heros and enables a couple of additional heros which are in the game but seem to be disabled(bug?). It also adds new multiheroes for a lot of nations. Most of them are fairly generic high mage type heroes, but all of them should be useful and thematic. Almost all nations have a Multihero with the mod and every nation has at least 2.

Name: Epic Hero Mod MA
Author: Xietor, community.
Type: Starting heroes
Desc: Adds a new hero to each nation in the middle era, replacing their starting scout.

Name: New GUI
Type: GUI Change
Author: Flecha_das_Sombras
Desc: Changes the vanilla GUI for a more stylish and somewhat darker look.

Name: Pretender: Ultimate Tyrant
Type: Pretenders
Author: Ragnarok-X
Desc: Adds the general pretender 'Ultimate Tyrant', a super powerful Beholder, to Dom3.

Name: Conceptual Balance Mod 1.1
Name: Conceptual Balance Mod 1.3
Type: Balance modification
Author: quantum_mechani
Desc: Makes a huge number of changes to vanilla Dom3 in order to create a better balance and provoke the use of more varied strategies.

Name: Charge! Mod for Magical Spears
Type: Items mod
Author: Endoperez
Decs: Adds the charge bonus to all forged spear and lance items.

Name: QuickFix 3.10 V2 This mod is obsolete with current patches, as the bugs it addresses have been fixed. ~Edi
Type: Bugfix
Auhor: Endoperez
Desc: This is an unofficial mod that fixes some of the known problems of the 3.10 version - including the one which makes Serpent Cult hydras lose their sacred status. Other than that it's only minor fixes, typos and such.

Name: Brothers of the Cave
Type: New national heroes
Author: Endoperez
Desc: This mod creates two new heroes for Agartha. Obsidian Medium is available for both MA and LA Agartha, and gives them easier access to Death and Water. Agent of the Oracles is a MA Agarthan hero with weak magic, but a very useful Death/Fire combination. A version of the Agarthan hero has actually been added to the game officially, so that section of the mod may be obsolete. ~Edi

Name: Price of Power
Type: Balance altering
Author: PvK
Desc: This mod increases the costs and requirements for forging magic items which increase magical power, and the most powerful power-increasing spells. The purpose is to increase the difference between nations and pretender designs, by making it harder to acquire high levels in all paths of magic. It also increases the difficulty of reaching the more powerful magic abilities, and of reaching them with many mages, thus prolonging the
usefulness of lesser magic and of non-magic units, to some degree.

Name: Deadly Seas
Type: Gameplay alteration
Author: PvK
Desc: This mod effectively removes most of the undersea conquest from the game. Some elements remain - mostly provinces which have amphibious populations. This means that nations with some amphibious units (such as Agartha, or Late Ages Mictlan) can still make (limited) use of them. However the fully undersea nations are removed, and aquatic
independents now have extremely powerful water elementals (including random underwater independent attacks), which means that most seas are effectively off-limits.

Name: Debug Mod
Type: Debugging and testing
Author: ryo_akashi
Desc: This mod is intended for debugging the behaviour of Dominions3. It removes level restrictions for all spells and magic items. In addition, the mod introduces six new spells to help debug. The new spells are Super Wish, Super GoR, Divine Wish, Divine GoR, Contact Debug Sensei and Eyes of Debug. Ideally, you would want to start with an Astral pretender, a nation with recruitable Astral mage or a nation with recruitable priest/mage. You would wish for "gold", "gems" and/or "magic power" to setup the conditions for debug. The level restrictions for magic spells and items have been removed.

Name: MR4 Mod
Author: Kristoffer O
Type: Balance/gameplay
Desc: Removes all magic items and spells from level 4 upward.

Name: MR6 Mod
Author: Kristoffer O
Type: Balance/gameplay
Desc: Removes all magic items and spells from level 6 upward.

Name: Disband mod: Final Sacrifice
Author: llamabeast
Type: Gameplay
Desc: Adds a spell which kills large numbers of your own troops in a province - useful for killing off unwanted militia or other now-useless troops.

Default Mod Nations - EA



Name: Draconia, Rule of the Dragon Kings
Author: Mr_Matt
Desc: Draconia is an ancient nation ruled by the Dragon Kings.

Name: Nature, Tooth and Claw
Author: Cor2
Desc: A strangeness has overtaken the wilderness of Primevale, origin of all life. What was once Wild is now tame. What was once asleep is now awake. Even the stones stir with life. All the animals and nature itself are acting with an alien purpose. Nature is rising.

Name: The Troll Kingdoms
Author: Grizly
Desc: A nation of trolls. Powerful earth magic and elite troops combined with slave lizard chaff.

Name: Alugra, City of Wonders
Author: Burnsaber
Desc: Alugra is a human town built upon a huge underworld nexus of magical leylines. For ages, pure and undiluted magic has been seeping from the very soil of Alugra. Some lucky inviduals are affected by the magic and turn into 'gifted', superhumans with inhuman speed, resilience, strength and strange magical abilities. Once people in Alugra started to get magical powers, people started to move in Alugra, hoping to become something more than a meek human. The huge increase of population in short time has made the city into a hive of criminals, who have already managed to expand their power outside the magical city. Some of the gifted want to enslave these ungifted cattle while others want to protect them from the latter. This dance of Heroes and Villains has been going on for centuries, but now Alugra is united for the cause of the one true awakening god.

Nane: Urdheim, The Infinite Horde
Author: Saulot
Desc: A nation of Kobolds. Kobolds are tiny and weak lizardlike creatures possessing great speed. They are aggressive, xenophobic, yet quite industrious. Kobolds are noted for their skill at using poison, building traps, preparing ambushes, and mining. While having longer lifespans than humans, they reach adulthood in a matter of months, and breed frequently and in great numbers. They claim to be distantly related to dragons, which they worship as deities.

Name: Rohan
Author: Foodstamp
Desc: Brings the Lord of the Rings nation of Rohan to Dominions. The nation makes heavy use of Rohan's famed cavalry. Starts with the King of Rohan, who cannot be replaced.

Desc: Adds a nation of intelligent rocks to the early era. They have rubbish recruitables and are essentially a blood hunting nation.

Name: Padmassa, the Black Coven
Author: DrPraetorious
Desc: A mod introducing a really evil nation into the early era. It replaces *mid-period* Ermor (for technical reasons.) The current generation of the mod is lacking in artwork, Frank is working on some of it but if anyone else wants to draw some, it'd be schweet. Padmassa is a blend of classic villainy, but the immediate influences are Shadow of Ararat (by Thomas Harlan), Bazil Broketail (by Christopher Rowley), The Ring of Five Dragons (Eric van Lustbader) and The Dark Crystal (by Jim Henson.) By TNDP - art by Amos and Frank Trollman.

Name: Magoserium, Mana Starved Mages

Name: Haida Gwaii, Reunified Tribes
Author: Foodstamp
Desc: The Haida Gwaii mod adds a new playable nation to the early age of Dominions 3. Haida Gwaii is loosely based on the first nations of the northwest pacific coast of North America.

Name: Seraphim, Angelic Crusade

Author: Nerfix
Desc: Sar Elad is a kingdom of men who were led from slavery to freedom by a great Prophet.

Summary: Amos is the most prolific modder in the community, with 12 nations released, each of which contains a substantial quantity of new units, spells, heroes and sprites. Amos has a distinct and impressive graphical style and it would perhaps be fair to say his mods provide the most eyecandy of any on these boards. He also makes the most of the mod commands available, pioneering new kinds of units and playstyles. On top of this he has continued to support and update his various nations with improved graphics, bugfixes, balance changes and the like. Amos has something of a reputation for producing overpowered mod nations and it's true that in most cases he hasn't tried to balance to vanilla standards, instead balancing his mods against each other and focusing on fun SP play.

Summary: As the original author of this post, it feels a bit silly for me to summarise my own contributions to the mod community, so I'll keep it quick. Since joining this community I have produced a number of nations and contributed to larger modding projects while offering a little help and encouragement to other modders. I confess I am more of a modder now than a player. I continue to work largely on Warhammer Nations for Dom3 but also update my older mods from time to time.

Summary: Zepath is the modder who inspired Sombre to mod. He is well known for the outstanding graphics, attention to detail and presentation in his work. Zepath vanished after completing a number of his mods and was thought lost to the community, but recently returned and gave us an excellent Warhammer World map which is already very popular.

Summary: DrPraetorious AKA TNDP is a longstanding and vocal member of the community who has authored much work and contributed to many projects. He is our resident code diver, grabbing information on units, codes, sites, special abilities and modding fields from the game. This information has been of great use to many modders and has helped flesh out out Edi's near comprehensive database. TNDP will admit he's not much of an artist and his mods reflect this, but his knowledge of the inner workings of the game and skills with code have made him an important member of the modding community.
