We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

What is Civ-War?
Are you a fan of Sid Meier's Civilization games? Civ-War is a game that allows you to create your own Civilizations in Minecraft! Just like in Civilization, you have to research and build up your Civ. However, the game is played from a first-person perspective, you can make your own items, and you can work together with a team of other players! You start out with wooden tools and a bit of food when you first join. The default Spawn is a small town with a bank, grocer, and global market. You can sell iron, gold, diamonds and emeralds at the bank, and buy or sell things like wood, cobble, feathers, leather etc. on the global market. You’re able to buy cooked fish at the grocer as well.
Civ-War has its own set of special Materials that you'll need in order to progress. You’ll want to start out by building a Camp. This will allow you to start gathering all the things you'll need to construct a Civilization. The resources it takes will sound overwhelming, but time flies when you have friends to help! The point of the game is to make a Civilization that will stand the test of time.
This is a very long-term game. No matter what you are planning to do with your Civ, you will have to log on regularly. For one, you have to gather enough in-game currency to pay for your Civ. All buildings have an upkeep cost, but don’t fret! It isn't hard to earn money, and if you keep your Civ small in the beginning, the upkeep cost is very manageable. When you're first starting, it's a good idea to read the wiki, and to either bring a large group of trustworthy friends, or join an already established Civ.
Our goal and vision
Our goal is to create a completely new, unique, and interesting gameplay experience. Combining creativity, and a goal oriented experience will give players the drive to keep playing. The hard earned resources you gather are now rewarded in a complex trade driven survival economy server. We want to take the creative spirit of Minecraft and give it a competitive feeling so that players can take greater pride in their accomplishments.
Familiar with Sid Meier's Civilization?
For those of you who have played the popular Civilization series, this mod will hopefully feel very familiar to you. Think of this mod as a first person version of Civilization in which Minecraft is just a creative backdrop upon which you build your empire.
Differences from vanilla Minecraft
If you're a Minecraft veteran, please take the time to look at the Differences From Vanilla Minecraft page. There is a list of important differences between your vanilla Minecraft experience and your experience in Civ-War which will make the difference between life and death, success and failure, and general reduction of unpleasant surprises. Some of the differences are: Removing diamond/gold armor, added in Tiers for Gear and Materials, civilization flag, camp block, and many, many more items!
If you are new to Civ-War please look at the Getting Started tutorial.
